Yo-Yo Ma making Vail debut tonight Bravo! begins with a bang as world-renowned cellist kicks off 23rd Vail Valley music festival He performed at President Obama’s Inauguration, he’s one of the best selling recording artists in the classical field, and he’s been entertaining audiences around the globe for 30 years with his awe-inspiring cello playing. His name is Yo-Yo Ma and he’s making his way to town tonight for his Vail debut, as the opening act of the 2010 Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival. Ma will perform a recital with pianist Kathryn Stott during the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival’s opening night of its 23rd season. This will mark Ma’s



debut performance in Vail. The 75-minute recital will take place at 6:00 p.m. at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater in Vail and promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime performance. “With its fine acoustics and natural environment, the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater is a unique setting in which to experience a live performance by one of the most famous and beloved classical instrumentalists in the world,� says Eugenia Zukerman, Bravo’s Artistic Director. Zukerman says the recital includes

some of the most thrilling music ever written for cello and piano. “We are so fortunate to have this masterful artist appearing in Vail,� she says. The program starts with Ennio Morricone’s “Gabriel’s Oboe� from the film The Mission, followed by George Gershwin’s Prelude No. 2 and Cesar Mariano’s “Cristal� and Brahms’ Sonata No. 1 in E Minor for Cello and Piano. Following a short intermission the duo will play British composer Graham Fitkin’s “L,� written for Yo-Yo on the occasion of his [See YO-YO MA, page 22]

BMX track grand opening Sunday By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer

Stocks tumbled for the fourth day in a row yesterday as confidence waned that the domestic economy is recovering. The selling was exacerbated by weakness in retailing shares, worries that the financial reform bill now in Congress will hurt the profits of big banks and other financial companies and by fears that the European debt crisis may get worse. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 145.64, or 1.41 percent, to 10,152.80. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 18.35, or 1.68 percent, to 1,073.69. The Nasdaq composite index fell 36.81, or 1.63 percent, to 2,217.42.

Construction is complete on Eagle’s latest attraction, the only BMX track between Denver and Grand Junction, and everyone is invited to the grand opening on Sunday. The track’s visionary and operator Jay Lucas worked in conjunction with the Town of Eagle, Spiegel Construction and volunteers within the community to bring the project to fruition, which called for 200 truckloads or 2000 yards of dirt. “It’s great; It’s a really a big thrill to see BMX come to our community,� Lucas said. Sunday’s grand opening offers a free BMX bike clinic for kids and adults and free gate practice. A $10 American Bicycle Association (ABA) registration will be available for those who want to participate in the race; however, [See EAGLE BMX TRACK, page 21]

EDITOR’S NOTE: Every day or two we take a cruise through some local police reports so we can bring you our favorites. The general theme is two-fold: (1) Sometimes we’re all this silly, and (2) this stuff is funny because it’s not happening to you … this time. WE’RE GONNA CLEAN UP THIS TOWN, AND SOME OTHERS ALONG THE WAY: Sweep-O-Nator was traveling up I-70 from Glenwood Springs to Denver in a street sweeping machine, returning from a job cleaning up this or that town and making up story lines for another Charles Bronson Sweep-The-Scum-Offthe-Streets movie, when he lost track of reality. It’s a street sweeper, after all, and while the shortest distance between two points might be a straight line, it’s still a long time time in one of those machines because they move at a deliberate pace. Sweep-O-Nator attracted the attention of a local Sheriff’s deputy, who was out patrolling and always wanted to have a closer look at one of those things. So, in the name of the investigative sciences, and because Sweep-O-Nator’s street sweeper didn’t have a license plate on his big ol’ machine, the deputy pulled in behind him and flipped on his lights. Paying little or no heed, Sweep-O-Nator continued at

his tortoise’s pace, determined the best the hare yet again. The deputy flipped on his siren, but apparently street sweepimg machines block out enough exterior noise that the drivers cannot hear sirens, unless they’re the sirens that left many Greek heroes dashed and shipwrecked upon the rocks of despair. (Ask your English teacher. If they don’t know the reference, fire them.) The deputy gave chase, sort of. They were, of course, traveling about 55 mph in the slow lane and not sweeping as they passed Dotsero. The “chase” lasted five miles. Finally, stirred from his reverie, Sweep-O-Nator noticed the deputy, who had now called for backup, and pulled over. He had a valid drivers license, registration and insurance. So, why, in the name of revenue-generating fees, don’t you have license plates on your street sweeping machine, the deputy asked Sweep-O-Nator. “I give up, why?” Sweep-O-Nator replied. To get to the bottom of the matter, they called Sweep-O-Nator’s Boss Man to tell him about the missing license plates. Boss Man explained patiently to the deputy that license plates are not required in Arizona, from whence the vehicle originated. To which the deputy asked, “How many streets to you sweep in a day?” Sweep-O-Nator seemed a little jumpy, which is odd for someone who had a soup can full of dope and a pipe with him in his street sweeping machine. You’d [See ALLEGEDLY, page 21]

Eagle Flight Days taking off Annual event kicks off today with pet show, live music By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer When an American small town parties, Eagle’s Flight Days is what it looks like. The celebration is taking an aquatic theme this year, Under the Sea. Of course it includes a dunk tank. The Eagle Town Park will be center of attention all weekend, beginning with the pet show 4 p.m. today, and rolling through the talent show at 11:30 a.m. Sunday. New Shoes and Deja Blu make the music Friday night. New Shoes plays from 6-8 p.m., and Deja Blu takes the stage from 8:30-11 p.m Saturday opens with the Eagle Lions Club pancake breakfast, 7-9 p.m. The parade follows at 10 a.m. On Broadway. It’s the Fort Carson Army Band concert at 11 a.m., and the Alpine Wind Ensemble at 2 p.m. The

music continues at 5:30 p.m., with local group Too Young to Know, followed by Hot Posse at 8:30 p.m. In between, there will be an auction, a chocolate bakeoff, horseshoe tournament, basketball shoot-out, magic show, vintage baseball game and a scavenger hunt. The Flight Days auction follows the parade at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, at the Eagle Town Park Centennial Stage. Auction items include rounds of golf, guided fishing trips, lodging packages and a variety of other items. The auction proceeds offset Flight Days expenses. Last year’s auction raised approximately $8,500, about onethird of the annual operating expenses. Most events are free, including the concerts tonight and Saturday. The chili cookoff fell by the wayside a couple years back, and last year’s apple bake off will be replaced by a chocolate bake off. %-EADOW$RIVE 6AIL /PENSAT0-NIGHTLY  TEL

In Columbia Pictures’ “The Karate Kid,” 12-yearold Dre Parker (Jaden Smith) could’ve been the most popular kid in Detroit, but his mother’s (Taraji P. Henson) latest career move has landed him in China. With no friends in a strange land, Dre has nowhere to turn, but to maintenance man Mr. Han (Jackie Chan), who is secretly a master of kung fu. As Han teaches Dre that kung fu is not about punches and parries, Dre realizes that facing down the bullies will be the fight of his life.

1970s-era DC Comics antihero Jonah Hex makes his way to the big screen as co-screenwriters Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (“Crank,” “Gamer”) team up to follow the disfigured gunslinger and part-time bounty hunter on his biggest adventure yet. Supernatural elements combine with Western aesthetics to take viewers on a wild and bloody ride, with Josh Brolin leading the way as Hex and John Malkovich stepping into the villainous role of Turnbull. Jimmy Hayward (“Horton Hears a Who”) directs.

LITERATURE Survival stories for a good cause ...

Consignment Furniture... Redefined Norman Ollestad had an adventurous and unusual upbringing. From the age of three his father thrust him into the uncertain world of surfing and competitive downhill skiing. And, by age eleven he would be confronted with a deadly situation that would test all of the skills and strength his father had instilled in him. In 1979 Ollestad became the lone survivor of a deadly plane crash in the San Gabriel Mountains. He visited The Bookworm in Edwards last night to tell not only his story of survival, but the story of a father and son. A portion of proceeds from the event will be donated to First Descents, an organization founded by local kayaker Brad Ludden, which is committed to curing young adults of the emotional effects of cancer and empowering them to regain control of their lives by experiencing kayaking and other challenging adventure sports in a safe, fun and supportive environment.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Richard A. Stone ordered Lohan to sit for a two-hour deposition next month.

John Harris, Blagojevichâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former chief of staff, testified Wednesday in the former governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s corruption trial that three days after the Nov. 4, 2008, presidential election, the ex-governor told Harris he felt confident Obama knew he wanted to swap perks, the Sun-Timesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Natasha Korecki and Sarah Ostman

Harris said Blagojevich came away believing Obama knew what he wanted after having a conversation with a local union representative, who in turn spoke with labor leader Tom Balanoff, with whom Blagojevich met to discuss a Jarrett appointment, according to the Sun-Times. Jarrett, now a White House adviser, reportedly was seeking the appointment to Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Senate seat.

U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman in New Orleans rejected the Obama administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request to stay his decision that allowed deepwater drilling to resume, Reutersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jeremy Pelofsky wrote yesterday. Fifteen hours after the Justice Department appealed Feldmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruling and requested a stay pending that appeal, Feldman issued a brief order denying the request for the same reasons he gave in his Tuesday decision, the article said. In that opinion, Feldman strongly criticized the Obama administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moratorium, saying that it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;indeed punitiveâ&#x20AC;? because it was too broad, arbitrary and was not adequately justified given the impact on thousands of oil industry workers and on local communities, according to Pelofskyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report.

June deadliest month in nine years

The deaths of another four NATO troops in an accident in Afghanistan made June the deadliest single month for US-led foreign forces in nearly nine years of conflict, according to an AFP tally yesterday, the news agency reports. The grim landmark followed the sacking of NATO’s commander in Afghanistan, General Stanley McChrystal, which was greeted with dismay in Kabul where Afghan officials and foreign diplomats praised his efforts to reshape the war, the AFP said yesterday. A total of 79 foreign troops have died so far this month as a result of the conflict in Afghanistan, according to an AFP tally based on statistics on the independent website, wrote Karim Talbi for the AFP. The record reportedly eclipsed the previous bloodiest month for NATO troops last August, when 77 soldiers were killed. Since the US-led invasion in late 2001, around 1,870 foreign troops have been killed.

Make chicken deals, eat burgers

The president of the United States and the president of Russia enjoyed quite a summer’s day yesterday: Grab some burgers, joke about Twitter, take a walk in the park. No summit, no sanctions, no weapons treaty. Yet they did strike a deal on chicken exports. This is the new day, on intentional display, between President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. It’s not all about nukes. Obama’s first time hosting Medvedev at the White House will probably be remembered most for the extent to which they got along like a couple of buddies. You want fries with that? Yes, they did. In fact, they shared some. “You know, sometimes it’s odd when you’re sitting in historic meetings with your Russian counterpart to spend time talking about chicken,” Obama conceded in describing an agreement to export U.S poultry products to Russia.

points lately, most recently when describing the administration’s handling of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, according to Yahoo! News. Now President Obama reportedly faces a turning point of his own — and not for the better. A new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll finds Obama’s approval rating to be the lowest it’s been since he took office 18 months ago, Yahoo! reported yesterday. According to the poll, only 45 percent approve of the job Obama is doing in the White House, compared with 48 percent who disapprove, the poll said. And the numbers only get worse from there: Sixty-two percent of respondents believe the country is on the wrong track — the highest number recorded since just before Election Day in 2008 — and just one-third believe things are going to get better, a 7-point drop since a month ago and the lowest such number in the Obama presidency, according to the report.

Hugo is stealing oil rigs

Venezuela’s government has seized control of 11 oil rigs owned by U.S. driller Helmerich & Payne, which shut them down because the state oil company was behind on payments. Oil Minister Rafael Ramirez announced that Venezuela would nationalize the Tulsa, Oklahoma-based company’s rigs. He said in a statement Wednesday that Helmerich & Payne had rejected government demands to resume drilling operations for more than a year. Helmerich & Payne announced in January 2009 that it was stopping operations on two of its drilling rigs, because Venezuela’s state-run oil company, PDVSA, owed the company close to $100 million. It said it would shut down the rest of its rigs by the end of July as contracts expired unless PDVSA began to make good on its debts. The company said yetserday that PDVSA’s debt was $43 million as of June 14. Referring to Helmerich & Payne, Ramirez said: “There’s a group of drill owners who have refused to discuss service prices and have preferred to have this equipment put away for a year.” President and CEO Hans Helmerich said in a statement yesterday the company’s position has remained clear: “We simply wanted to be paid for work already performed.”

It also included dozens of tax breaks sought by business lobbyists, and tax increases on domestically produced oil and on investment fund managers.

Governors who had been counting on federal aid will now have to consider a fresh round of budget cuts, tax hikes and layoffs of state workers.

Republicans stop $30 billion spending bill

An Asian carp was found for the first time beyond electric barriers meant to keep the voracious invasive species out of the Great Lakes, state and federal officials said Wednesday, prompting renewed calls for swift action to block their advance. Commercial fishermen landed the 3-foot-long, 20-pound bighead carp in Lake Calumet on Chicago’s South Side, about six miles from Lake Michigan, according to the Asian Carp Regional Coordinating Committee. Officials said they need more information to determine the significance of the find. But environmental groups said the discovery leaves no doubt that other Asian carp have breached barriers

Republicans yesterday defeated Democrats’ showcase election-year jobs bill, including an extension of weekly unemployment benefits for millions of people out of work more than six months. The 57-41 vote fell three votes short of the 60 required to crack a GOP filibuster, delivering a major blow to President Barack Obama and Democrats facing big losses of House and Senate seats in the fall election. The rejected bill would also have provided $16 billion in new aid to states, preserving the jobs of thou-

You may be too salty

Most U.S. adults should eat less than a teaspoon of salt each day, but a new government report says just 1 in 18 meet that goal. Health officials currently say no adult should eat more than a teaspoon of salt each day. They go on to advise that 70 percent of adults - including people with high blood pressure, all African-Americans and everyone over 40 - should actually limit their salt intake to a more restrictive two-thirds of a teaspoon. Sodium increases the risk of high blood pressure, which is major cause of heart disease and stroke. Salt - or sodium chloride - is the main source of sodium for most people. Overall, only 1 in 10 adults meet the teaspoon standard, said the CDC study. But for those who should be even stingier, only 1 in 18 manage to do it. The research repeated what others have found, that the vast majority of dietary salt comes from processed and restaurant foods. And it concluded that salt was most commonly found in cold cuts and other meats, and in baked goods and other items counted as grainbased products.

Bear attacks geologist

His work done for the day, geologist Robert Miller was waiting for his helicopter ride out of the remote Alaska wilderness when a grizzly bear suddenly emerged from the brush just yards away. So, Miller did what he was trained to do â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he fell to the ground, clasped his hands around his neck to protect it and played dead. The bear wandered away and Miller thought he was in the clear. Pulling himself to his knees, he found out how wrong he was. When the bear first charged, Miller managed to pull out his .357 Magnum revolver and squeeze off a single shot, possibly grazing the animal. Then his survival training kicked in: He fell onto his stomach, dug his

face into the dirt and covered his neck with his hands to protect it from the grizzlyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claws and teeth. The bear went for his exposed right arm, gnawing and clawing it and chipping the bone off the tip of his elbow. The attack lasted 10-15 seconds, then the animal lumbered away. Miller rolled over and was getting to his knees when the bear, which was only about 40 yards away, came at him again. He managed to fire two more shots, but with his right arm badly injured he thinks he missed the bear. Then he lay still as the animal gnawed and clawed at him. After the second attack, Miller played dead again, lying still for three to five minutes. He tried to move and realized he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he was too badly injured. He tried calling for help on his radio about every 20 seconds; about 20 minutes passed before the helicopter pilot answered, and Miller was eventually taken to the nearest hospital.

30-year mortgages hit 50-year low

Mortgages are cheaper today than theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in a half-century. If only most people had the job security, the credit score and the cash to qualify. The average rate for a 30-year fixed loan sank to 4.69 percent this week, beating the low set in December and down from 4.75 percent last week, Freddie Mac said yesterday. Rates for 15-year and five-year mortgages also hit lows. Rates are at their lowest since the mortgage company began keeping records in 1971. The last time they were any cheaper was the 1950s, when most long-term home loans lasted just 20 or 25 years. Almost no one expects falling rates to energize the economy, though. Sales of new homes collapsed in May after an enticing tax credit expired.

You, Only Better

The tennis match that would not end finally did at 70-68 in the fifth set, after a record 11 hours, 5 minutes spread over three days. When John Isner of the United States won the longest match in tennis history and went to the net to greet Nicolas Mahut of France, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;for lack of a better wordâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;lost Thursday at Wimbledon, Isner pulled Mahut in for a hug, a simple handshake would not suffice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You know,â&#x20AC;? Isner told the crowd moments later, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it stinks someone had to lose.â&#x20AC;? There were 980 points overall, and Mahut won more, 502-478. There were 711 points in the fifth set, and Mahut won more, 365-346. Essentially, the match lasted as long as it did for two reasons: Neither man could break the otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s serve, and Wimbledon does not employ a tiebreaker in the fifth set. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Especially once the match got past, you know, 25-all, I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really thinking,â&#x20AC;? said Isner, who led the University of Georgia to the 2007 NCAA team tennis championship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hitting a serve and trying to hit a forehand winner is the only thing I was doing.â&#x20AC;? When it did conclude, Isner dropped down to the court, rolled on his back, and kicked his legs in the air as if he had just won the trophy. The 183 games and total time, both crushed existing records of 112 and 6:33. The 138 games and 8:11 in the fifth set alone, also records. Isnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 112 aces in the match, and Mahutâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 103, both much higher than the old mark of 78.

The fourth-seeded Murray said that as they walked out to court, he took care to coordinate with his opponent when they would bow to the Royal Box.

Murray caused quite a stir before Wimbledon started when the he said that he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure he planned to bow to the Queen.

debts, according to the Guardian, a British newspaper. The Guardian reported yesterday that an area in Mykonos, one of Greece’s top tourist destinations, is one of the sites for sale. The area is one-third owned by the government, which is looking for a buyer willing to inject capital and develop a luxury tourism complex, according to a source close to the negotiations, yesterday’s article in the Guardian said. Potential investors also looking at property on the island of Rhodes are mostly Russian and Chinese, the article said. Investors in both countries are looking for a little bit of the Mediterranean as holiday destinations for their increasingly affluent populations, the Guardian reports.

Sperm whales feeding even in the most remote reaches of Earth’s oceans have built up stunningly high levels of toxic and heavy metals, according to American scientists who say the findings spell danger not only for marine life but for the millions of humans who depend on seafood. A report released yesterday noted high levels of cadmium, aluminum, chromium, lead, silver, mercury and titanium in tissue samples taken by dart gun from nearly 1,000 whales over five years. From polar areas to equatorial waters, the whales ingested pollutants that may have been produced by humans thousands of miles away, the researchers said. The researchers found mercury as high as 16 parts per million in the whales. Fish high in mercury such as shark and swordfish — the types health experts warn children and pregnant women to avoid — typically have levels of about 1 part per million. The whales studied averaged 2.4 parts of mercury per million, but the report’s authors said their internal organs probably had much higher levels than the skin samples contained.

Lake Michigan steamer found after 112 years

A great wooden steamship that sank more than a century ago in a violent Lake Michigan storm has been found off the Milwaukee-area shoreline, and divers say the intact vessel appears to have been perfectly preserved by the cold fresh waters. Finding the 300-foot-long L.R. Doty was important because it was the largest wooden ship that remained unaccounted for, said Brendon Baillod, the president of the Wisconsin Underwater Archaeology Association. The Doty was carrying a cargo of corn from South Chicago to Ontario, Canada in October 1898 when it sailed into a terrible storm, Baillod said. Along with snow and sleet, there were heavy winds that whipped up waves of up to 30 feet. The Doty should have been able to handle the weath-

[From page 1]

er. The ship was only five years old, and the 300-foot wooden behemoth’s hull was reinforced with steel arches. But it was towing a small schooner, the Olive Jeanette, which began to founder in the storm after the tow line apparently snapped, Baillod said. The Doty probably sank when it came to the schooner’s aid. All 17 of its crew members died, along with the ship’s cats, Dewey and Watson.

Driver drinks emergency beer

A drunk driver trapped after overturning his car cracked open another can of beer while he waited for emergency crews to rescue him, a New Zealand court was told. Paul Nigel Sneddon, 47, pleaded guilty to careless driving and drunken driving after being nearly three times over the legal alcohol limit in a district court in the city of Palmerston North, the Dominion Post newspaper reported on Wednesday. Police found Sneddon, a former baker, trapped in his overturned Ford Laser on June 1, drinking a can of beer after he failed to take a corner properly and crashed through a wooden barrier, flipping his vehicle. Defense lawyer Peter Young said that when Sneddon found he could not open the doors, “he had nothing else to do at that point, so he had another beer.” When asked by police how much he had consumed, Sneddon replied: “Plenty, I’ve been drinking for four days straight.”

Oregon case dropped for lack of evidence

Authorities in Portland, Ore., investigated in late 2006 and early 2007 a masseuse’s claim that she was sexually assaulted by former vice president and Nobel laureate Al Gore during his visit to that city, but the matter was eventually dropped for lack of evidence, officials said Wednesday, according to the Washington Post. The woman who alleged the assault through her lawyer declined initially to be interviewed by police and did not want officers to pursue the matter, the Multnomah County district attorney’s office said Wednesday, the Post’s Carol D. Leonnig wrote yesterday. She later reportedly reconsidered and met with Portland police detectives in January 2009, telling them she “was repeatedly subjected to unwanted sexual touching.” The detectives concluded after that interview that they lacked enough evidence to proceed with an investigation, the police department was quoted saying in the article. —Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

Finn Dippy, 7, lines up at the starting gate last weekend at the Eagle BMX track.

think he’d be experiencing that “all-is-well-with-the-world-dude” feeling that so often accompanies marijuana, even if it’s not medical marijuana. Apparently, dude, street sweeping is slow work and there are not that many motivational tapes you can listen to during the course of your workday. While the deputy had Boss Man on the phone,

general use of the track is free and open to the public seven days a week. Races will continue throughout the summer every Sunday. Riders are encouraged ride BMX bikes, but Lucas says traditional mountain bikes are just fine. The course has been officially sanctioned by the ABA, which sent a “track shaper” out to the Eagle venue to perfect the track. The weekly races are also sanctioned and controlled by the ABA. Lucas, 44, said he got into BMX racing when he was eight years old. “The sport has been around since 1977. The races started in California and made their way East,” Lucas said. “It’s a huge sport now. It became an Olympic sport in 1998.” Eagle will serve as a central location for riders in Summit County, Glenwood Springs and Aspen, in addition to Eagle County. “In Colorado we have 13 tracks. Eagle gives us an ideal location because we have a big population between Glenwood Spring and Summit County. With all the people we have around here that ride mountain bikes and dirt bikes, it’s just a natural fit for our community,” Lucas said. Team Little Maintenance will provide an opportunity for kids, ages 7 – 11, to participate in a fun group environment. And, being located right next to the Eagle pool, everyone can hop in and cool off between laps around the track.

he mentioned the dope. Boss Man was taken completely aback, asking something like, “Do you think he’ll share when he gets back to the shop?” The deputy pointed out that Boss Man’s reaction was not exactly the sort of moral outrage he was expecting. Boss Man quickly added that the lad would be taking a drug test when he got

back to work, by golly. The marijuana was not medicated, and neither was Sweep-O-Nator. He was not smoked up at all. Sweep-O-Nator was given a summons for running from a pursuing a police officer, even if it could not be considered a high speed pursuit, or Sweep-O-Nator could not considered among the high pursued.

Another person that has known Ma for years is Kathryn Scott. One of Britainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most versatile and imaginative piano players, Scott has a long-standing musical relationship with Ma, including their Grammy Award-winning Sony CD Soul of the Tango and Obrigado Brazil. She travels around the world with Ma performing recitals. Ma has a discography of more than 75 albums including 15 Grammy Award winners. His most recent recordings include Paris: La Belle Ă&#x2030;poque, with pianist Kathryn Stott, Appassionato, which contains some of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most romantic music and New Impossibilities, a live album recorded with the Silk Road Ensemble and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra; he also appears on John Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soundtrack for Rob Marshallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s film Memoirs of a Geisha. All of his recent albums have quickly entered the Billboard chart of classical best sellers, remaining in the Top 15 for extended periods, often with as many as four titles simultaneously on the list. Ma also performs Saturday Following tonightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance, Ma join with the students of Celebrate the Beat, First Notes and Bravo! Young Composers to celebrate arts education in Eagle County with the free performance â&#x20AC;&#x153;Imagination Celebration,â&#x20AC;? taking place Saturday morning at the Gerald R.

The gates of the Amphitheater will open at 10 a.m. in anticipation of the free event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having Yo-Yo Ma with us to join in celebrating some of the top arts education programs in the valley is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,â&#x20AC;? said Ceil Folz, president of the Vail Valley Foundation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His participation will make for a performance that will be a thrill for all of us, and will undoubtedly create an incredible impact on our children.â&#x20AC;? The Imagination Celebration will be hosted by the directors of Vailâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music and dance festivals, Eugenia Zukerman and Damian Woetzel, respectively. The performance will get underway with the students of the dance and music education program Celebrate the Beat, performing a dance to John Lennonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Come Togetherâ&#x20AC;?, choreographed by the programs Artistic Di-

Bravo! Young Composers Ben West and Jeremiah Johnston will take the Amphitheater stage to debut their original composition, entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coyoyote,â&#x20AC;? which was inspired by a collection of Native American tales. Ma and Bravoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Artistic Director and flutist Eugenia Zukerman, along with percussionist Mark Trevino, are slated to accompany West and Johnston on the piece. Also at the event, Ma is scheduled to take center stage for a performance of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Swanâ&#x20AC;? from Camille SaintSaĂŤnsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Carnival of the Animals, accompanied by Katherine Bellino on piano. A freshman at Evergreen High School, she started playing and studying the piano at the age of seven and has participated in many competitions under the guidance of Rodney Mobley. The Imagination Celebration program will conclude as Ma welcomes the Celebrate the Beat dancers back to the stage for a performance of Bachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Prelude and Gigue #1 for Solo Cello.â&#x20AC;? Ma is strongly committed to arts educational programs that not only bring young audiences into contact with music but also allow them to participate in its creation. While touring, he takes time whenever possible to conduct master classes as well as more informal programs for studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;musicians and non-musicians alike. One of Maâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent career highlights was performing the new John Williams composition, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Air and Simple Giftsâ&#x20AC;? at Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inauguration speech. Ma has continued to play for the First family at various events including the G-20 Summit Meeting. President Obama recently appointed Ma to the Presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Committee on the Arts and Humanities. Other career highlights include being appointed the first ever-creative consultant for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
