County officials are trying to avoid that sort of Squawk Fest this time around. This is the second public hearing for Eagle River Meadows.

The station says there has been no word of 48-year-old Rick Steele, who went missing last Thursday while taking his dogs for a walk near South Canal.

Steele’s truck was found near the canal, along with the two dogs. Steele hosts a weekday morning show called “The Blast” on KBNG-FM.

The Bud Light Hot Summer Nights free concert series continues tonight with the electrifying rock and roll of Jonathan Tyler & The Northern Lights. Many music critics have feared that great old-school rock and roll has died in today’s society, but they’ve clearly never experienced a Jonathan Tyler & The Northern Lights show. Tyler, Brandon Pinckard, Nick Jay, Emotion Brown and Jordan Cain come together to form a rock tidal wave that takes audiences along for a live music thrill ride they won’t soon forget. Tyler and the Lights’ music is the wake-up call rock and roll needs, with a touch of blues and soul along for the ride. The band is a throwback in the best sense of the word. Since their 2007 debut, they have been a blur of full-tilt showmanship worthy of groups like the [See HOT SUMMER NIGHTS, page 15]

4th of July great for business Avon’s fireworks, Vail shootout among the big draws for out of towners By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer Fourth of July weekend is one of the busiest in the Vail Valley with folks coming from far and wide to enjoy the summertime mountain activities and festivities. And local businesses know now is the time to capitalize on both vacationers and valley residents looking to have a fun time. Avon’s fireworks display is the largest in the Rocky Mountains drawing somewhere between 15 and 20 thousand spectators, says Danita Chirichillo, special events supervisor for the town of Avon. “It’s a pretty broad mix of people from outside of town and people that live here,� Chirichillo said. “This was my fifth fireworks event, and I would say there was definitely a growth last year, and this year was equal to – or maybe slightly above – last year.� Bob’s Place owner Chris Doyle says the Fourth of July celebration in Avon is great for businesses in our area; however, he would like to see the town encourage more events and tourism throughout the summer, rather concentrating on a single day. A summer concerts series in Nottingham Park is one suggestion Doyle offered to draw visitors deeper into the summer season. For the Westin Riverfront Resort and Spa, this year’s title sponsor of Avon’s fireworks celebration, the festivities were fantastic for business, says spokesperson Julie Dunn. The Westin was at full occupancy Saturday night and nearly full Friday and Sunday nights, which was better than last year’s mark and something she attributes to the hotel’s sponsorship of the event, as well as their riverside deck perfect for viewing the show. Lacrosse players help local business Visitors to the valley come for a number of reasons, but no event draws more out-of-towners than the tenday Vail Shootout lacrosse tournament, which concluded Sunday and brought an estimated 14,000 people to valley. Most of them stay in hotels between Vail and Avon, and their Fourth of July visit generates somewhere in the neighborhood of $2 million for local businesses – businesses like Timberline Tours, which provides players with rafting trips and Jeep tours. Lisa Reeder of Timberline Tours says business was excellent thanks in part to the lacrosse crowd, which comes to Vail to experience other mountain activities,

in addition to the tournament, she said. “The Lacrosse people were a huge influx of people, but that was kind of leading up to the Fourth. That is a huge economic boost for the valley; there is no doubt about that,� Reeder said. While business was very good for Timberline, Reeder said, with the Fourth falling on a Sunday, visitors planned their trips for either the week leading up to the holiday or the week after. As a result, business has been a bit more spread out over a two-week period rather than being super concentrated into one, which is usually the case. But, some business owners like Zach Povey from The Club in Vail Village wonders if switching the tournament to another weekend might be more beneficial for local businesses. He said that, while the Shootout is great for business, more people would likely come from Denver and the Front Range on the Fourth, if the town were not so busy with Lacrosse people. If the tournament was moved, say to the week after the Fourth, perhaps Vail would ultimately wind up drawing more folks to town – just some “food for thought,� he said. Only three arrests in Vail The Vail Police called this year’s July 4th celebration “uneventful,� which is a good thing. Vail’s annual parade drew an estimated 20,000 people, yet police action was limited to a few parking tickets. The Vail Police Department had a total of three arrests and issued four summonses into municipal court during the nighttime activities. Charges ranged from minor in possession of alcohol and false identification to driving under the influence of alcohol and an outstanding warrant. In addition to the enforcement actions, the department also placed two people into protective custody for excessive alcohol consumption.

Author Jenna Blum to talk stormchasing tonight ... Tonight the Bookworm in Edwards Riverwalk welcomes author Jenna Blum to the valley to talk about her new book, “The Stormchasers and Those Who Save Us.” “Jenna Blum’s first novel, ‘Those Who Save Us,’ has been a huge book club favorite here in the Vail Valley for years, and now we have a new novel from Jenna Blum to look forward to,” writes the Bookworm. “In ‘The Stormchasers’ Blum turns her sights to a more contemporary exploration of family relationships. The new novel that tackles mystery and power of the feelings of love and loyalty that exist between twins, and explores the adrenaline fueled world of storm chasing.” From Newsweek: “Blum visits Tornado Alley in this vivid novel about a set of twins with a dark history. At home in Minnesota, Karena Jorge gets an unexpected call informing her that her twin brother, Charles Hallingdahl, whom she hasn’t seen in the 20 years since something went very wrong during a storm chase, has been admitted to a Kansas mental hospital.” The discussion starts at 6 p.m. Cost is $20 and includes wine and appetizers.

Fired up for their fireworks Eagle/Gypsum’s 31-minute show takes dozens of volunteers all day to prepare

Things that go bang in the night The shells manufactured by Western Enterprises in Oklahoma. They also put on the Avon show. The company can’t be everywhere all the time, so they trained two Eagle fire department guys to run fireworks shows. For Eagle’s Deputy Chief Chris Blankenship, Sunday night’s July 4th show was his 20th. Brian Schofield was there to help. He used to be the chief at the airport. Lee Boucher is Eagle’s assistant training officer. Training Chief Sean Moore was on hand. Jamie Yantzer and Mike Montag were among the dozens of volunteers with Eagle’s and Gypsum’s fire departments.

started at 6:30 a.m., helping with Eagle’s July 4th bike parade, and ended well after midnight. That’s $23,000 fired into the summer sky – worth every dime. Western Enterprises likes doing the show because they’re prepaid, so they threw in $3,000 worth of stuff for free, Asper said. They’ll start working on next year’s fireworks show when the 2011 budget cycles start. That’s this week. No call too small The fireworks have to be trucked down from a storage bunker in Beaver Creek. LaFarge brings over 12 tons of sand that the volunteers shovel into sand bags. Those bags wrap the fireworks launch boxes and tubes, in case something goes awry. It rarely does, but you’d have to be willing that the federal government can spend us out of recession to believe that it couldn’t. U.S. Forest Service had two engine crews on hand. Gypsum’s chief Dave Vroman was the chief safety officer. Western Eagle County Ambulance District provided a supervisor and ambulance crew, and an ambulance, of course. It takes all day. The Eagle Diner cut them a screaming deal for breakfast and supper. Moe’s Barbecue came up with lunch. Avon triples that number of people who worked on Saturday’s Salute to the USA event, Asper said. The Eagle fire department’s slogan is, “No call too small,� and the regular stuff didn’t stop while they were coordinating the fireworks show. At 6:30 a.m. Sunday morning, some of the fire fighters were out helping with Eagle’s annual July 4th morning bike parade. A day or two before, they got a distress call that turned out to be a baby raccoon stuck between a fence and a house, which was quickly again answering the call of the wild.

Fireworks potential The Eagle fireworks has the potential to create lots of its own fireworks – two towns and the county, managers, councils, commissioners, staffs. It could be a mess, but it’s not. “It’s well orchestrated and there’s no politics,� Asper said. “We couldn’t do it without each other.� Asper walks a delicate line, making sure everyone gets the credit they deserve and feels like they’ve gotten their money’s worth – which they did. Eagle and Gypsum each put in $10,000. The county came up with $3,000. They all donate thousands of dollars worth of services and equipment. Eagle supplies the police, the Sheriff’s office is there, the Gypsum fire department helps is a huge part of making everything work. It’s a huge group of people volunteering through an 18-hour day creating a 31 and a half minute fireworks show.

Vail Mountaineer


By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Fireworks are like show business. It takes days to prepare a 30-minute show. Take the Eagle/Gypsum show, for example. Crews started working around 6:30 a.m. It was will past midnight when they left. The 31-and-a-half minute show was successful because a zillion and a half details were handled the second they came up. “Everyone does their share and more,� said Eagle Fire Chief Jon Asper. “They started at 6:30 a.m., and stayed past midnight and they’re volunteers. There’s no double time or holiday pay with these guys. Those guys are giving up their July 4th holiday to make this work.�

to be more careful. Mistakes discovered in the 3,000-page report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change last year fed into an atmosphere of skepticism over the reliability of climate scientists who have been warning for many years that human-induced emissions of greenhouse gases could have catastrophic consequences, including rising sea levels, drought and the extinction of nearly one-third of the Earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s species. The errors put scientists on the defensive in the months before a major summit on climate change in Copenhagen in December, which met with only limited success on agreeing how to limit carbon emissions and contain the worst effects of global warming.

Chinese court sentences U.S. geologist to 8 years

An American geologist held by Chinese state security agents who stubbed lit cigarettes on his arms was sentenced to eight years in prison yesterday for gathering data on Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oil industry â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a case that highlights the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s use of vague secrets laws to restrict business information. In pronouncing Xue Feng guilty of spying and collecting state secrets, the Beijing No. 1 Intermediate Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Court said his actions â&#x20AC;&#x153;endangered our countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national security.â&#x20AC;? Its verdict said Xue received documents on geological conditions of onshore oil wells and a database that gave the coordinates of more than 30,000 oil and gas wells belonging to China National Petroleum Corporation and listed subsidiary PetroChina Ltd. That information, it said, was sold to IHS Energy, the U.S. consultancy Xue worked for and now known as IHS Inc. The sentence of eight years is close to the recommended legal limit of 10 years for all but extremely serious violations. Though Xue, now 45 and known as a meticulous, driven researcher, showed no emotion when the court announced the verdict, it stunned his lawyer and his sister, his only family member allowed

in the courtroom. Xueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sentence punctuates a case that has dragged on for more than two-and-a-half years and is likely to alarm foreign businesses unsure when normal business activities elsewhere might conflict with Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vague state security laws.

Patriotic parade went horribly wrong

The buggy driver whose horses trampled spectators at the town of Bellevue, Iowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fourth of July parade had tried desperately to stop the rampage, clinging to the reins as the animals dragged him down the street, his family said yesterday. Mardell Steines was in the buggy with his wife, Janet, his daughter-in-law, his 7-year-old grandson and his 5-year-old granddaughter on Sunday when the horses bolted toward the end of the parade, injuring 24 people and killing Janet Steines. Police said the horses were spooked after they rubbed heads and the bridle fell off one of them. The animals went on a rampage over six blocks, plowing through spectators and children stooping to snatch up candy that had been tossed along the parade route. The buggy struck a combine in the parade and a road sign, witnesses said. Janet Steines was thrown out and struck a concrete driveway. The hitch came undone and the carriage separated from the horses, running over Steines as he held onto the reins, said relatives. Steinesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; shirt was shredded as the horses dragged him down the street, witnesses added. One child was still hospitalized yesterday with a compound fracture of his right leg, bruises on his kidney, liver and right lung, and extensive road rash. He had a carriage tire mark on his right arm. At least 15 of the injured were children, according to police. Jim Evilsizer, a former paramedic who ran a food cart on the parade route, said he helped put a 10-or-12year-old boy who apparently took a hoof to the head on a backboard and carry him to a triage area on the Mississippiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It looked like a war zone,â&#x20AC;? the 61-year-old said.

Israel eases Gaza closure, but restrictions remain

Israel is easing its blockade of Hamas-ruled Gaza to allow in virtually all consumer goods, items from household cleaners to timber that had been barred from import for years. But because Israel will continue to ban most travel and exports and restrict the import of desperately needed construction materials, the new rules are unlikely to restore the territoryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s devastated economy or allow rebuilding of all that was destroyed in last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s war. The White House welcomed the changes that were announced yesterday as Prime Minister Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu flew to Washington for a meeting with President Barack Obama. Gaza business leaders and rights activists said the measures are far short of what Gaza needs, and that the only active cargo crossing, Kerem Shalom, may not be enough to bring in all the goods now permitted. Israeli officials said the remaining restrictions, including on exports, are essential for maintaining security.

Census worker taken to court for trespassing

In these divisive times, Census worker Russell Haas has come to expect some resistance when he goes door to door to count the residents of the rugged communities near Hawaiiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kilauea volcano. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect to get arrested. An attempt to get one resident, a county police officer, to fill out Census forms landed Haas in the back of a patrol car with a trespassing charge. The case is now in federal court, the latest example of disputes this year between Census workers and residents who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to deal with them. It has created a rare instance in which federal prosecutors have stepped in to serve as criminal defense attorneys. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was trained to encourage everybody to be in the Census,â&#x20AC;? said Haas, 57, a former New Jersey police officer. The case hearkens back to an argument that is as old as the nation itself: the tension between federal powers granted under the Constitution, such as census taking, and a stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right to govern itself.

The long weekend did have more people out seeking relief. Five Connecticut state parks had to stop admitting people because they had reached capacity. A major utility restricted water use on the New Jersey shore, forbidding residents from watering lawns and washing cars, and about 17,000 customers in northern New Jersey lost power for more than four hours yesterday, though it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t clear whether the outage was related to the heat.

Homeowner finds naked man asleep on sofa

A San Diego resident awoke to a shocking discovery: a naked stranger passed out on his downstairs sofa. San Diego police Lt. Jim Filley says the Pacific Beach homeowner called police after wandering downstairs Sunday morning and finding the snoring man. Filley says the naked man was drunk and thought he was in his own home in Mission Valley, some 20 miles away. The man, whose name wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t released, had taken off his clothes outside the house and walked in through the unlocked front door. The homeowner declined to press charges. And since the intruder had sobered up, he was released to find his own way home.

Clinton criticizes Russia for occupying Georgia

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton rebuked Russia yesterday for failing to live up to the cease-fire agreement it signed nearly two years ago to end the fighting in this small former Soviet state. She asserted that Russia is occupying parts of Georgia and building permanent military bases in contravention of the truce. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re calling on the Russians to enforce the agreement they signed,â&#x20AC;? she told a news conference with Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili at her side. She said that includes pulling its troops back to the positions they held before the invasion. Several times she pointedly referred to Russian troops as occupiers. She said the U.S. was â&#x20AC;&#x153;appalled and totally rejectedâ&#x20AC;? Russiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rationale for the invasion, which temporarily put U.S.-Russian relations in a deep freeze and prompted NATO to suspend cooperation with Moscow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The United States is steadfast in its commitment to Georgiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sovereignty and territorial integrity,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The United States does not recognize spheres of influence,â&#x20AC;? she added, referring to Russian President Dmitry Medvedevâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claim that his country has â&#x20AC;&#x153;privileged interestsâ&#x20AC;? and special influence in Georgia and other former Soviet states. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

Stoudemire agrees to sign with Knicks Amare Stoudemire is headed to the New York Knicks, and both sides are hoping heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not coming alone. The Knicks said yesterday they intend to sign Stoudemire to a contract later this week when the free agent moratorium period ends. Stoudemireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agent, Happy Walters,

said the deal is for the maximum allowed, which would be nearly $100 million over five years. Wearing a blue Knicks hat, Stoudemire said he looked forward to rebuilding a franchise and bringing the Knicks back to the top â&#x20AC;&#x201D; maybe with a player such as LeBron James or Dwyane Wade with him.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel great about being a pioneer and showing my leadership,â&#x20AC;? he said at Madison Square Garden, where signs throughout the entrances showed the player pictured in STOUDEMIRE a Knicks uniform and reading â&#x20AC;&#x153;Welcome, Amare Stoudemire.â&#x20AC;? The deal canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be signed until Thursday, after the salary cap for next season has been set.

Georgia AD resigns following DUI Damon Evans offered another apology on the day his resignation as Georgiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s athletic director was announced by the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president. The announcement by Michael Adams came after a conference call with the executive committee of the athletic associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of directors yesterday. Adams said Evans resigned Sunday, less than a week after Evans was arrested on a DUI charge. Evans released a statement Monday in which he offered â&#x20AC;&#x153;my sincerest apologyâ&#x20AC;? to Adams, Georgia officials, coaches, fans and student-athletes. EVANS â&#x20AC;&#x153;It had been my hope since taking the job in 2004 that I would have a long career at UGA,â&#x20AC;? Evans said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But because of a serious mistake

in judgment, that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the case and I understand that I have a long road to rebuilding my reputation and career.â&#x20AC;? Evans was arrested late last Wednesday in Atlanta. He was charged with DUI and failure to maintain a lane. Also arrested with him was Courtney Fuhrmann, who was charged with disorderly conduct. Evans said Thursday Fuhrmann is â&#x20AC;&#x153;just a friend.â&#x20AC;? According to the incident report, the arresting officer said Fuhrmann told him she had been seeing Evans for â&#x20AC;&#x153;only a week or so.â&#x20AC;? Evans and his wife, Kerri, have two children. He apologized to his wife Thursday as she attended his news conference. Evans became the Southeastern Conferenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first black athletic director in 2004. There was no immediate word on a replacement.

Ex-Red Wings, Blackhawks tough guy Probert dies Retired hockey enforcer Bob Probert, as adept with his fists as with a stick in a 16-season career with the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks, died yesterday after suffering chest pains while boating with his family. He was 45. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bob lost the fight of his life this afternoon,â&#x20AC;? said Probertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father-in-law, Dan Parkinson, a police officer who performed CPR before Probert was rushed to Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Windsor Regional Medical Center. Probert was on a boat in Lake St. Clair with his wife, children and in-laws when he â&#x20AC;&#x153;developed severe chest painsâ&#x20AC;? yesterday, family friend Rich Rogow said at a news conference at the medical center last night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a tragedy for the family,â&#x20AC;? Parkinson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We ask that you respect their privacy at this time.â&#x20AC;? Probert, who struggled to overcome drinking problems during his time in the NHL, played for the Red Wings in 1985-1994 and for the Blackhawks in 1995-2002. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bob was a part of our very first NHL Draft class that also included Steve Yzerman, Joe Kocur, Petr Klima and Stu Grimson,â&#x20AC;? Red Wings owners Mike and Mar-

ian Ilitch said in a statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bob was always there for his teammates and was one of the toughest men to ever play in the NHL. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He also was one of the kindest, most colorful, and beloved players Detroit has ever known.â&#x20AC;?

On a day of chaos and crashes, riders tumbled like dominoes in the rain and littered the road in a scene Lance Armstrong called â&#x20AC;&#x153;surreal.â&#x20AC;? The seven-time champion did not escape the mayhem at the Tour de France yesterday. He was left searching for his bike, nursing scrapes and bruises to his hip and elbow and joking about the decision to come out of retirement. He was in good company, joining dozens of riders who hit the asphalt on a slippery downhill run some likened to ice skating. Sylvain Chavanel of France was among few to avoid trouble. He sped to victory after breaking away early in the 125-mile trip from Brussels to Spa and taking the yellow jersey from Switzerlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fabian Cancellara. With the pack banged-up, he finished nearly four minutes ahead. With so many riders down in crashes, organizers said they briefly considered canceling the stage altogether. But under the race rules, the spills were too spread out to warrant a cancellation. Armstrong returned to the RadioShack team bus with his team outfit torn and a bloody scrape on his thigh. His team said he also injured his elbow but otherwise was all right. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You had people everywhere. It was surreal. When I got back on my bike â&#x20AC;Ś I saw crash, after crash, after crash,â&#x20AC;? Armstrong said, noting riders laid out on the ground. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was like war.â&#x20AC;? Chavanel began the stage in 87th place and knocked everyone on the leaderboard down a notch: Cancellara dropped to second, 2 minutes, 57 seconds behind. Germanyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tony Martin is third, 3:07 back. Armstrong sits fifth, 3:19 back, and defending champion Alberto Contador of Spain is seventh, 3:24 behind. The Spanish two-time Tour winner bruised his right hip, knee and elbow but was expected to start Tuesday. Some riders believed a motorcycle crash in the race caravan before

the pack passed left oil on the road, creating an especially slick mix with the rain. On the descent from the midlevel Stockeu Pass, Armstrong, Contador and 2009 runner-up Andy Schleck all went down. Armstrong said he knew he was not badly hurt, but he did have other concerns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew I was fine,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My first thought was: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Where is my bike?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I tried to find my bike. You know in the rain these guys are very good downhill. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not one of them. But even the good ones, with something like that: No chance. Absolutely no chance.â&#x20AC;? Everybody finished, except French rider Mickael Delage, who slammed into a road barrier early in the stage. The Omega Pharma-Lotto rider was taken to hospital with a concussion, a broken bone in his face and shoulder, knee and hand injuries. Scrapes and bruises were reported by the dozens, and nearly every team was affected. Some riders estimated at least half the 194-rider peloton had fallen. A post-stage medical report listed 23 as at least slightly injured during the day. On the Garmin-Transitions team alone, Americans Tyler Farrar and Christian Vande Velde and Julian Dean of New Zealand were taken to a hospital for evaluation.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Riding downhill was almost like ice skating,â&#x20AC;? said Johan Bruyneel, the RadioShack manager and Armstrongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longtime mentor. Teammates Andreas Kloeden and Levi Leipheimer fell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Almost half of the peloton crashed today,â&#x20AC;? Bruyneel said. The spills wreaked havoc on organizers and riders alike. Some took longer to rejoin the race than others. After Schleck dropped several minutes back of the packâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;threatening his Tour title ambitionsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the main bunch appeared to slow down, with his Saxo Bank teammate Cancellara at the front. Between Schleck, under an escort from his older brother and teammate Frank, and Chavanelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s group at the front, confusion broke out in the pack about how to respond in a sporting and competitive way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was a group up the road, we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to do,â&#x20AC;? Armstrong said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Schlecks were behind, some other guys were behind. It was sort of a conflict about what to do then.â&#x20AC;? Contador said he ordered his Astana team to wait. Cancellara, who as race leader can act as spokesman for the pack, asked Tour organizers not to award points for a final sprint out of respect [See â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;SURREALâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, page 15]

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Carnageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; predicted for 4(%3!.$"!2 todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cobblestone stage In todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tour de France stage 3, the 193 riders will bump, rattle and roll over seven separate sections, 8 miles in all of cobbles that at times will feel more like riding on the rocky bed of dry river than on a road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is always the possibility of punctures or falls. This stage will frighten everyone and the race favorites may lose precious minutes,â&#x20AC;? says the Tourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official website. These arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the neatly laid baby little cobbles you get in the city centers of Paris and elsewhere. They are roughly hewn rocks so bumpy that special metal protective undersides are fitted to the cars that carry race officials, mechanics and team bosses following riders

during the Paris-Roubaix race. There are potholes and, often, large gaps between the stones, perfect for snagging a tire. The paths also have what amount to nasty speed bumps. Riders will have to either ride in the dusty channels that run along both sides of the paths or on top of the bumpy spine in the middle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Going.To.Be.Carnage,â&#x20AC;? tweeted Lance Armstrong after inspecting the cobbles last week. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third stage takes the pack on a 132-mile ride from Wanze Arenberg, Belgium, to Porte du Hainaut, France.

Vande Velde out of Tour American Christian Vande Velde pulled out of the Tour de France after breaking two ribs in a crash during yesterdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second stage of the race.

Vande Velde was involved in one of the several crashes that marred the 125-mile rain-soaked stage from Brussels to Spa in Belgium. His Garmin-Transitions team said

Vande Velde â&#x20AC;&#x153;suffered a left eyelid laceration requiring multiple stitches, along with two broken ribs.â&#x20AC;? His teammates Tyler Farrar and Julian Dean, who also were taken to a hospital for checks, will be able to start todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stage, Garmin said, although Farrar broke his left wrist.

French sports minister wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t judge Armstrong

French Sports Minister Roselyne Bachelot is taking a wait-and-see approach when it comes to Floyd Landisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; allegations that seven-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong doped during his career. Landis, stripped of the 2006 Tour de France title for doping, gave the Wall Street Journal new details about his use of banned products in a story published last week, and accused Armstrong of receiving blood transfusions during the 2004 Tour. Landis also said some of the bikes provided to Armstrongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team were sold to help the former U.S. Postal Service team fund his doping program. Armstrong, who is competing in his last Tour this year, denied the accusations and compared them to a â&#x20AC;&#x153;carton of sour milk.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a sports minister who condemns before hav-

ing received serious evidence,â&#x20AC;? Bachelot said yesterday before the Tourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second stage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is an inquiry in the United States and the people who are conducting it are not known for being lax. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten some high-profile sportsmen on their list of conquests. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I trust the American authorities.â&#x20AC;? Landisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; allegations reportedly have drawn the attention of U.S. Food and Drug Administration agent Jeff Novitzky, the lead investigator in the BALCO doping case. Armstrong said Novitzky had not contacted him or his lawyers. Bachelot said Tour organizers have made eradicating doping their priority and pointed out that cycling is on the forefront of the fight against the use of performance-enhancing drugs.

EAGLE RIVER MEADOWS 2ND MEETING recent Vail economic impact study. Developers want to reclaim the old B&B gravel pit and build a medical campus, housing and several public amenities, including increased river access. The Atira Group made their initial presentation to the county commissioners two months ago and the first public hearing followed a couple weeks later.

NIMBYs vs. NOWBYs That first public hearing went pretty much as expected. Some say it should retain its pristine pasture status, because cattle grazing are what they were looking for when they came here from somewhere else – although there was a lot more of that in these parts before people started displacing cattle with condos. Others can’t wait to see development, pointing out the hundreds of permanent jobs in the medical industry, one of the industries actually growing that’s not the federal government. Those permanent jobs would follow thousands of construction workers who would build it.. Also, they point out, most of it’s already a gravel pit, and there’s nothing pristine about it. “When it’s done, you’ll get the same open space acreage as the Eagle River Preserve, only with more

trails and more fishing access,” said Lance Badger with the Atira Group. Our story so far It’s a sketch plan right now. That’s the first of a three-part review and approval process that these sorts of development proposals have to wade through before developers can start building. The Eagle River Meadows sketch plan started through the county’s planning commission since January. The planning commission unanimously approved it on April 21, sending it to the county commissioners with a recommendation for approval, with conditions. If the sketch plan is approved, the applicant will have two years to get a preliminary plan approval from those same county officials. A preliminary plan is much more detailed. How it’s situated Eagle River Meadows would circle that large meadow along the Eagle River, across the river from what is now the B&B gravel pit site in Edwards. It would continue along the north side of that meadow about 100 feet below I-70. The buildings would go where the gravel pit and mining facilities are now, and on the south side where


the land rises out of the flood plain. The south side, the Highway 6 side, is proposed to be home to about 260,000 square feet of medical facilities, to include some related retail. It’ll also be home to around 140 residential units. On the north side, the I-70 side, there’s a proposal for 240 units, about the density of Miller Ranch. The two will be connected by a series of recreation paths and a road that circles the open space, those big green fields in the middle. The two sides would be connected by a small bridge across the Eagle River, and to Brett Ranch. The proposal for the medical side includes senior care and assisted living facilities, as well as other medical facilities. The whole project is downstream from the Eagle River Preserve, that big bunch of open space in Edwards. The development’s density would thin out along the border it shares with the 72-acre Eagle River Preserve open space. Trails through Eagle River Meadows would connect to the ECO Trails system through the Eagle River Preserve. The site has been a gravel mine since 1976, when Sid Blandford moved B&B Excavating out of Vail’s Lionshead area to its current Edwards site.


Rolling Stones or E Street Band at their hungriest. Having shared the stage with rock icons like AC/DC and ZZ Top, Tyler & The Lights have used those experiences to craft their own version of a great show. From the first note, the band grabs hold of the audience and keeps them hooked until the last chord.

‘SURREAL’ 2ND STAGE AT TOUR DE FRANCE for the fallen riders, course director Jean-Francois Pescheux said. Tour organizers called it a show of good sportsmanship. That request, made with just 1.2 miles left, was honored by the race jury and, in effect, slowed the finish. The decision will have deprived some sprinters of points in the competition for the green jersey, which is awarded to the race’s best sprinter. “There was no reason to not contest the sprint today,” said two-time

green jersey winner Thor Hushovd of Norway.” Everyone made a gentleman’s agreement not to sprint, but I lost an important opportunity to try to win the stage and gain points.” Armstrong was already lucky to have avoided six crashes in Sunday’s first stage. The mishaps have injected drama into the first week of racing even before its most dreaded test: Tuesday’s run on seven patches of cobblestones. Armstrong, who returned to the


[From page 10]

Tour last year after a 3 1/2 -year retirement, got a handy reminder of the treachery that often lurks early in the three-week race. Many sprinters are eager to win a stage, and the pack can get antsy and nervous. It’s all a far cry from Armstrong’s easier life as a retiree. “Almost all day, I wondered why I came off the beach,” Armstrong cracked, reiterating that this Tour will be his last. “But I’ll be back at it tomorrow.”
