Schools superintendent accepts $13,000 bonus Eagle County District facing 50 layoffs, $4M in budget cuts By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer The local school board agreed to cut 50 jobs and $4 million, then handed the superintendent a $13,000 bonus. The school board’s decision was unanimous, the board said in a written statement. Every school district employee is eli-


gible for an annual bonus, under a voter-approved performance-pay program, and Smyser is no exception, the school board’s statement said. Smyser is beginning the third year of a three-year contract, and her bonus package is part of that package. In addition to her annual performance bonus, her contract stipulates 20 percent of this year’s bonus will be added to next

year’s base salary. Last year the school board gave her a $15,750 bonus, her salary increased by that amount, to $181,300. This year, twenty percent of Dr. Sandra Smyser’s $13,144.25 bonus boosts her base pay from $181,300 to $183,928. Smyser became eligible for her bonus when the school year ended earlier this month.

“Eagle County schools has proudly considered themselves a pioneer in nontraditional educator compensation,” the school board said in a written statement. “Every employee in the district receives the variable portion of their salary at the end of their contract year and the superintendent is no exception. The board of education heavily weighed the superin[See SCHOOLS, page 15]

Feds arrest Russian spies

The FBI has arrested 10 people for allegedly serving for years as secret agents of Russia’s intelligence service, the SVR, with the goal of penetrating U.S. government policymaking circles. According to court papers unsealed yesterday, the FBI intercepted a message from SVR headquarters, Moscow Center, to two of the defendants describing their main mission as “to search and develop ties in policymaking circles in US.” Intercepted messages showed they were asked to learn about a broad swath of topics including nuclear weapons, U.S. arms control positions, Iran, White [See THE UPDATE, pages 9-11]

The Hot Summer Nights free concert series continues tonight with the infectious Celtic rock grooves of the The Killdares at the Ford Amphitheater in Vail. Vocalist and drummer Tim Smith, bagpiper Matt Willis and guitarist Brek Lancaster first played music together in Texas in 1996, and over the past fourteen years they have been developing a unique and

They have created a fresh new sound blended with enough commercial edge to be instantly [See KILLDARES, page 15]

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.

Join Nick Asoian, family and friends at La Bottega in Vail tomorrow to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Welcome Home Nickâ&#x20AC;? and celebrate his return from treatment in Denver. The fundraiser will act in conjunction with the Vail Valley Charitable Fund and a portion of the proceeds from La Bottega will help Nick cover his medical costs. There will also be a silent auction, an Epic Pass giveaway and everything on the menu will be offered 30 percent off, including drinks. In 2008, Asoian was diagnosed with stage 2b-3b Nodular Sclerosing Hodgkins Lymphoma while coaching ski racing in New Zealand and has continued his battle with the disease at home in Vail ever since. As long-time Vail residents, Nick and his family have been heavily involved in ski racing with Ski Club Vail, for which Nick was an athlete and has been working as a coach for the past 5 seasons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nick is a kind of person whose friendship has no bounds,â&#x20AC;? reads his Web site created by family and friends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anyone who has known him over the years is amazed with his caring touch and kind heart. His loyalty to friends and family and compassion for all are unequaled,â&#x20AC;? In trying to emulate those qualities, his friends and family are asking for the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help on Nickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behalf. Last summer, Nick completed his first 8-month round of chemotherapy. 90 percent of people with Hodgkins Lymphoma are cured or go into remission after this first round, but Nick found himself in the other 10 percent. As a result, Nick faced a much more intensive and demanding second round of chemotherapy that involves long hospital stays and extensive travel to Denver. Nick also faced a bone marrow transplant, full-body radiation and 5 weeks in Denver at the end of his current chemotherapy prescription. The bone marrow transplant was a great success

The Killdares are playing a free concert at the Ford Amphitheater tonight, blending genres of Celtic rock, powerpop and rock. Maybe youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get a chance to do some blending of your own, perhaps some Jamison, Baileyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Guinness in recognition of the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Irish influence. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening after the showâ&#x20AC;Ś

Former house musician at The Club Scott Munns is returning to play some Southern rock and throw a rowdy party all this week at the Vail nightclub. If you partied at The Club between 1996 and 2003, you probably caught a Scott Munns show or two. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back tonight starting at 10 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great playing The Club because I can turn it into the out-ofcontrol party that I love, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I get when I come back to Vail,â&#x20AC;?

Portwood says Stereo Assassins play aerobic funk, covering James Brown, The Meters and funky takes on Phish and the Dead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We blend rhythm and soul with jam and groove and keep you moving until youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a full body freak out.

House rumors, CIA leadership turnover, the last presidential election, the Congress and political parties. After a secret multiyear investigation, the Justice Department announced the arrests yesterday in a blockbuster spy case that could rival the capture of Soviet Col. Rudolf Abel in 1957 in New York. There was no clue in initial court papers how successful the agents had been, but they were alleged to have been long-term, deep cover spies, some living as couples. These deep-cover agents are the hardest spies for the FBI to catch because they take civilian jobs with no visible connection to a foreign government, rather than operating from government jobs inside Russian embassies and military missions. Abel was just such a deep cover agent; he was ultimately swapped to the Soviet Union for downed U-2 spy pilot Francis Gary Powers in 1962.

Invisible ink makes a comeback

Court papers in the new Russian spy case described a high-tech spy-to-spy communications system used by the defendants: short-range wireless communications between laptop computers—a modern supplement for the old-style dead drop in a remote area, high-speed burst radio transmission or even the hollowed-out nickels used by Col. Abel to conceal and deliver microfilm. But the network also used some more outdated spy techniques. “Criminal complaints filed in federal court on Monday read like an old-fashioned cold war thriller,” reported the New York Times yesterday. “Spies swapping identical orange bags as they brushed past one another in a train station stairwell. An identity borrowed from a dead Canadian, forged passports of several countries, letters sent by shortwave burst transmission or in invisible ink. A money cache buried for years in a field in upstate New York.”

Supreme Court says you can keep your guns

The Supreme Court held yesterday that Americans have the right to own a gun for self-defense anywhere they live, expanding the conservative court’s embrace of gun rights since John Roberts became Chief Justice. In short, the court said the Second Amendment’s guarantee of an individual right to bear arms applies to both state and local gun control laws, according to the New York Times. By a 5-4 vote, the justices cast doubt on handgun bans in the Chicago area, but signaled that some limitations on the Constitution’s “right to keep and bear arms” could survive legal challenges. In the guns case, Justice Samuel Alito said for the court that the Second Amendment right “applies equally to the federal government and the states.” The court was split along familiar ideological lines, with five

Supreme Court to look at Arizona immigration law

The Supreme Court has agreed to referee the first round of a tug-of-war between state and federal governments over immigration - a 2007 Arizona law penalizing employers who knowingly hire undocumented workers, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The case that the justices will hear in the term that starts in October offers a preview of the legal clash over Arizona’s newly enacted criminal penalties for migrants illegally present in the state, yesterday’s article said. The Obama administration asked the court to review the Arizona employment law and has indicated it will sue to block enforcement of the state’s broader immigration law, scheduled to take effect July 29, wrote the Chronicle’s Bob Egelko. The issues in the two disputes reporteldy vary somewhat, but both center on the extent of a state’s authority to enforce immigration-related laws without intruding on exclusive federal power to regulate the nation’s borders

Is it safe to go into the water?

Massachusetts isn’t about to let a measly 200-pound juvenile great white shark close its beaches, according to Newser. The beast was caught and released 20 miles offshore, and “we don’t believe it is a threat to public safety,’’ a top environmental official was quoted saying in the report. “White sharks have been here, and they will continue to be here.’’ The state’s one safety precaution? Avoid swimming with pods of seals, yesterday’s article said.

Senator Byrd dead at 92

Senator Robert C. Byrd, a son of West Virginia coal country who used his mastery of Senate rules and a taste for hardball tactics to become a passionate and often feared advocate for the state and the Senate he loved, died Monday at age 92. The Democrat’s 51 years in the Senate made him the longest serving senator in history, while his white mane, stentorian voice and flamboyant speeches citing Roman emperors gave him the presence of a man from a grander, distant time. In many ways, Byrd embodied the changes the nation has undergone in the past half century. A one-time segregationist and opponent of civil rights legislation, he evolved into a liberal hero as one of the earliest, unrepentant and most vocal foes of the Iraq war and a supporter of the rights of gays to serve in the military. He was the acknowledged Senate Renaissance [See THE UPDATE, pages 10-11]

man, who could recite poetry by memory for hours and yet be ruthless in advancing his legislative agenda â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which often involved corralling federal dollars for his perpetually struggling state. As a young man, Byrd was a member of the Ku Klux Klan for a brief period, and he joined Southern Democrats in an unsuccessful filibuster against the landmark 1964 Civil Rights Act. He had previously embarked on a career in politics when a grand dragon of the Klan suggested he run for office.

The Hollywood star recently completed the filming for her latest movie, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Touristâ&#x20AC;? with Johnny Depp, and has several projects lined up including a big-screen adaptation of Patricia Cornwellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s popular Kay Scarpetta novels, yesterdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s article said. But Jolie, who has six kids with her partner Brad Pitt, reveals sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growing tired of acting and might not â&#x20AC;&#x153;do it much longer,â&#x20AC;? according to the Chronicle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (acting) not the most important thing in my life. Acting helped me as I was growing up. It helped me learn about myself, helped me travel, helped me understand life, express myself, all those wonderful things. So Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very, very grateful, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fun job. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a luxury... But I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do it much longer. Because I have a happy home...

I just thought it was time for my character to go.â&#x20AC;? But Carell, 47, who plays regional manager Michael Scott on the show, reportedly says fans shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get too worried -â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the show will do just fine, maybe even better than before, the Web report claims. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[This might] add some new life and some new energy to the show,â&#x20AC;? he was quoted saying about leaving a role that earned him multiple Emmy nominations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I certainly didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t anticipate any hubbub over it.

Earthly passions banned in outer space

Commanders do not allow sexual intercourse on the International Space Station, it has been disclosed, according to the Telegraph, a British newspaper. “We are a group of professionals,” Alan Poindexter, a NASA commander, was quoted saying during a visit to Tokyo, when asked about the consequences if astronauts boldly went where no others have been. Mr Poindexter and his six crew members, including the first Japanese mother in space Naoko Yamazaki, were in Tokyo to talk about their two-week resupply mission to the International Space Station, yesterday’s article said. The April voyage reportedly broke new ground by putting four women in orbit for the first time, with three female crew joining one woman already on the station. Sexual intercourse in space may appear out of bounds, but astronauts have been known to succumb to earthly passions, the Telegraph notes. In 2007, former NASA astronaut Lisa Marie Nowak allegedly wore adult diapers when driving hundreds of miles across the United States without bathroom breaks to confront a suspected rival in a romance with a fellow astronaut, according to the article.

Blago had his eye on Oprah

Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich seriously considered Oprah Winfrey as a candidate to fill President Barack Obama’s former Senate seat, calling the talk show host a kingmaker who could influence voters, according to an FBI tape played yesterday at his corruption trial. “She made Obama, she’s up there so high nobody could assail this pick,” Blagojevich is heard telling his chief of staff, John Harris, who is OPRAH now a prosecution witness. Blagojevich had mentioned in TV interviews last year that Winfrey’s name had come up. Winfrey said then that she was “amused” and that she was unaware at the time that she was under consideration. On the tape played yesterday, Blagojevich’s former chief of staff, John Harris, says that selecting Winfrey would be “crazy” and he is “not sure what she stands for.” Blagojevich brushes such concerns aside, saying she was obviously a Democrat and her support in the 2008 election had “made Obama.”

Tiny bubbles may cure cancer


Engineers and cancer specialists at Leeds University in England are developing a new technique that uses microscopic gas bubbles to carry chemotherapy drugs to tumors where the drugs can target the cancer cells, according to the Telegraph, a British newpaper. Each of the tiny bubbles, which are less than a tenth of the width of a human hair, can be specifically targeted to cancer cells so that they clump around the tumor, the Telegraph’s Richard Gray reported Sunday. A pulse of ultrasound then causes the gas inside the bubbles to vibrate until the bubble bursts and the resulting shock wave also punches small holes in the cancer cells allowing the drugs inside, according to the Telegraph’s report.

Serena beats Sharapova Top-seeded defending champion Serena Williams overcame Maria Sharapova 7-6 (9), 6-4 yesterday to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals and avenge her loss to the Russian in the 2004 final. Serena Williams served 19 aces for the second straight match—taking her total to 63 for the tournament—and held off the resurgent Sharapova in a tight battle on Centre Court.“I don’t serve like this too often,” Williams said. “I don’t know what it is about this court that makes me serve well.” Williams, who hit four aces in the opening game, saved three set points in the tiebreaker to stay in command.“I played really well and I thought I had my chances,” said Sharapova, who hurt her own cause with seven double faults. “If it was not for her really great serving, I certainly had a real good look at winning the match.” In 2004, Sharapova—17 years old at the time— stunned Williams 6-1, 6-4 for her first Grand Slam title. “That was so long ago that I don’t think it gives me

any more added or any less satisfaction,” Williams said after yesterday’s match. “We’re both different players. She’s obviously improved. Hopefully I’ve improved since six years ago.” Sharapova came back from 3-1 down in the first set and had Williams on the ropes in the tiebreaker, but failed to convert. Leading 6-4, she hit a forehand into the net before Williams smacked a forehand winner to make it 6-6. With Sharapova up 8-7, Williams hit a service winner to save another set point. At 9-all, Sharapova double-faulted. Williams then converted her third set point with her 13th ace. Serving for the match in the second set, Williams hit another ace and a service winner. She finished with 31 winners and 17 errors, while Sharapova had 14 winners and 18 errors. Williams next faces Li Na of China.

926-5000 Lance Armstrong at last year’s Tour de France. AP photo.

Armstrong says this year’s tour is his last Lance Armstrong has posted on his Twitter page this year’s Tour de France will be his last. “It’s been a great ride. Looking forward to 3 great weeks,” Armstrong tweeted last night. A seven-time winner of cycling’s most prestigious race, the 38-year-old Armstrong returned to the Tour

last year after a three-year absence and finished third behind Astana teammate Alberto Contador of Spain. Armstrong started a new team for this year’s race. He won the race seven straight times from 1999-2005 before retiring. The Tour de France starts Saturday in Belgium.

Bruyneel hopes trio can take down Contador

Affordable Texturing & Repair Specialist


Armstrong’s Team RadioShack formulating plan for Tour RadioShack might not have the Tour de France favorite in its ranks, but team boss Johan Bruyneel hopes a trio made up of Lance Armstrong, Andreas Kloeden and Levi Leipheimer will derail defending champion Alberto Contador’s bid to win the showcase event for a third time. Contador, who defeated Armstrong last July to claim a second Tour victory, is favored to defend his title. But, although the Spaniard has the odds on his side, seven-time champion Armstrong and his longtime friend and mentor Bruyneel believe that playing the team card could help RadioShack knock Contador off his perch.

“The big favorite is not on our team,” Bruyneel recently told the Associated Press. “But it’s better to have three cards to play from a strategic point of view. Among our three leaders, Lance is maybe the best, but we’ll see during the race.” The three-week Tour starts Saturday from the Dutch port of Rotterdam. Armstrong won the Tour de France seven times in a row before retiring in 2005. He came back to racing last year following a 3 1/2 -year absence and finished third while riding alongside Contador with the Astana team. Kloeden finished second in the Tour in 2004 and 2006, while Leipheimer was third in 2007.

“Our three leaders had a break this season. Kloeden and Leipheimer because they already had a lot of races under their belts and Lance because of his crash at the Tour of California in May,” Bruyneel said. “Their condition is rising and hopefully they will have reached their peak for the first day of the race.” The first week of this year’s race should be very tense with riders going through seven cobblestone sectors over a total of 8.2 miles in the third stage between Wanze, Belgium, and Arenberg Porte du Hainaut, France, on July 6. It will be the first time since 2004 that riders will have to handle cobblestones.
