Was IronKids worth it? Dear Editor, Although I certainly applaud keeping our kids active and healthy and I try to support every sports event that comes to the valley, I have to seriously question the necessity of inconveniencing 2,500 residents of West Beaver Creek Blvd from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. for any race. The event didn’t even start till 7:30 and when I walked through Nottingham Park at 7:15-7:30 I saw not one kid or anything resembling the start of the race. Actually, the bike portion of the race which precluded vehicular use of the street didn’t start till probably 9. When I called the Avon police about it, the officer I spoke to said he didn’t realize the closure would be that extensive but that since the publics works department was handling it, he couldn’t offer any alternative. A friend

of mine is a firefighter and he said they were awakened at 5 a.m. on Sunday morning by a public works employee who said the street in front of the station would be closed so they may want to station the trucks over by the Westin in case they needed to get out for an emergency. Now what kind of sense does that make and why were they not notified till 5 a.m. on the morning of the event? I think this is the second year Avon has hosted this event and I realize the closure was advertised well in advance but I think they need to give some serious consideration to routing it differently next year. This is why we put so much money into parks, people! At the very least, one lane of traffic should be available to residents. Maurie Conner, Avon

Local foundation furious over plagiarism Gov. candidate McInnis calls it a ‘serious mistake’ By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer


New Patients Welcome FREE Initial Exam Board Certified Orthodontic Specialist 25 years experience

A local family foundation says they had no idea Scott McInnis lifted part of his essays about water, and may ask for its $300,000 back. The Hasan Family Foundation paid McInnis for a three-year fellowship that included “Musings on Water.� Parts of that work were lifted from Colorado Supreme Court Justice Gregory Hobbs. McInnis, a Republican candidate for Colorado governor, called it a “serious mistake,� and blamed a research assistant for failing to cite Hobbs as the author of the work. McInnis’s GOP primary challenger, Dan Maes, says McInnis should “man up� about the plagiarism. The material in question consists mostly of technical descriptions about the history of Colorado water law. Hasans “angry, disappointed� “I am shocked, angry and disappointed,� Seeme Hasan, chairwoman of the Hasan Family Foundation, said in a written statement. “Any work related to the fellowship that Mr. McInnis submitted was always represented as final. In addition, there were never discussions nor any knowledge by the Foundation that Mr.

McInnis was working with a research advisor.� If that was true, no one with the Hasan Family Foundation knew about it, Seeme said. McInnis’s work was supposed to be done by McInnis, and not in concert with anyone else, Seeme said. “At no time was it brought to our attention that Mr. McInnis used information not cited, or unethically used work that was not his own. We will conduct an independent, internal investigation and if the allegations are proven to be true, we will demand Mr. McInnis return all monies paid to him by the Foundation.� She said the money was supposed to be used as an educational grant. “The Hasan Family Foundation takes the issue of plagiarism extremely seriously,� Seeme said. “We gave him the funding as an educational activity. We did not dream that he would take advantage of the situation and not do work, and on top of it hand in plagiarized articles to us.� Seeme said the story has been unfolding for a few months. She said she finally learned yesterday afternoon that parts of McInnis’s articles had been plagerized. “It disgusted me,� she said. “Having three children who are all writers I understand copyright and how serious it is to steal some one else’s material.�

Colorado Municipal League opposes tax cut measures Statewide group says amendments would ‘devastate’ local governments By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer A statewide organization representing cities and towns says tax cut ballot measures would be devastating. The Colorado Municipal League says Amendments 60 and 61, and Proposition 101, would be “devastating to cities and town statewide by slashing municipal tax and fee revenue,� said Sam Mamet, CML executive director, in a memo to members. “We are encouraging municipal officials to get the word out to their citizens regarding the implications of these measures -- cancellation of services, for example,� Mamet wrote. The tax cuts would come on the heels of the recession, which has already left cities and town scrambling for ways to pay bills and cut expenses. Vail’s town council officially opposed the measures after learning it would cost the town $5.3 million annually. The Upper Eagle River Water Authority also came out in opposition. Amendment 60 would change Colorado’s TABOR Amendment,

which restricts government growth to a combination of growth plus inflation. For now, local voters can reject TABOR’s restrictions for their governments, called de-Brucing, named for TABOR Amendment author Douglas Bruce. Eagle County’s voters de-Bruced in 1994. Amendment 60 would nullify all those deBrucing elections, Mamet wrote. Supporters of the measures say government spending has outpaced the economic growth of even the recent boom, and that government debt is growing beyond the taxpayers’ ability to pay. Mamet argues that Colorado’s taxes are actually lower than much of the country. “The business-supported Tax Foundation lists Colorado sixth best for business among all 50 states,â€? Mamet writes. “Factoring in all taxes, Colorado ranked 13th best in the Tax Foundation’s overall Business Property Tax Index.â€? What the three would mean Proposition 101: • Reduces ownership taxes paid on vehicle registration to $2 for new vehicles, $1 a year thereafter. The CML estimates that would cut $500 million for municipalities and other

Amendment 61: • Lowers the limit on municipal [See CML, page 18]



taxing districts across the state. • Reduces vehicle registration fee to a flat $10. Some of that money goes to cities and towns to maintain streets and roads, the CML says. • Eliminates sales tax on the first $10,000 of a vehicle’s value. • Eliminates sales taxes on telecommunications services. • Cuts the state income tax by 25 percent. That would be a $1 billion cut to the state budget, the CML says. Amendment 60: • Cancels voter authorized TABOR property tax overrides. • Would limit future TABOR overrides to four years in duration. • Would require enterprise funds to pay property taxes. That means water districts and other other quasi-governmental entities would have to pay property taxes. CML says that would force an increase in utility bills. • Imposes a 10-year limit on any property tax increase approved by voters. Governments would no longer be allowed to ask voters to approve long-term debt. • Cuts school district mill levies in half, and requires the state government to make up the difference.

the Treasury Department said Tuesday that through the first nine months of this budget year, the deficit totals $1 trillion. That’s down 7.6 percent from the $1.09 trillion deficit run up during the same period a year ago. Worries about the size of the deficit have created political problems for the Obama administration. Congressional Republicans and moderate Democrats have blocked more spending on job creation and other efforts. Republicans also have held up legislation to extend unemployment benefits for the long-term jobless because of its effect on the deficit. Another failed effort would have provided cashstarved states with money to help avoid layoff of public employees and finance the Medicaid program for the poor and disabled.

Yankees owner George Steinbrenner dead at 80


New York Yankees dynasty, ushering in the era of multimillion-dollar salaries and accepting nothing less in return than World Series championships. He fired managers. Rehired them. And fired them again. He butted heads with commissioners and fellow owners, insulted his players and dominated tabloid headlines — even upstaging the All-Star game on the day of his death. George Michael Steinbrenner III, who both inspired and terrorized the Yankees in more than three decades as owner, died Tuesday of a heart attack at age 80. “He was and always will be as much of a New York Yankee as Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford and all of the other Yankee legends,� baseball commissioner Bud Selig said. Once reviled by fans for his overbearing and tempestuous nature, Steinbrenner mellowed in his final decade and became beloved by employees and rivals alike for his success. Steinbrenner was taken from his home to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa, Fla., and died about 6:30 a.m, a person close to the owner told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team had not disclosed those details. “George was a fierce competitor who was the perfect fit for the city that never sleeps — colorful, dynamic and always reaching for the stars,� former President Bill Clinton said. Yankees captain Derek Jeter added: “He expected perfection.�

by a state lawmaker from Los Angeles. Assemblyman Mike Davis said Tuesday that he believes it’s worth studying whether the California Department of Parks and Recreation should take over the Neverland Ranch in Santa Barbara County. He says fans from around the world would visit Michael Jackson’s former estate, which is now owned by a private equity firm. Davis says the plan remains only an idea at the moment. He says he might introduce a bill or resolution on the matter after lawmakers return from their monthlong recess in August. He says NAACP president Alice Huffman and others approached him with the idea. Huffman’s office did not immediately return a call.

Burka ban working way through French parliament

France’s lower house of parliament overwhelmingly approved a ban on wearing burqa-style Islamic veils Tuesday, part of a concerted effort to define and protect French values that has disconcerted many in the country’s large Muslim community. Proponents of the law say face-covering veils don’t square with the French ideal of women’s equality or its secular tradition. The bill is controversial abroad but popular in France, where its relatively few outspoken critics say conservative President Nicolas Sarkozy has resorted to xenophobia to attract far-right voters. The ban on burqas and niqabs will go in September to the Senate, where it also is likely to pass. Its biggest hurdle will likely come after that, when France’s constitutional watchdog scrutinizes it. Some legal scholars say there is a chance it could be deemed unconstitutional. Spain and Belgium have similar bans in the works. In France, which has Europe’s largest Muslim population, about 5 million of the country’s 64 million people are believed to be Muslim. While ordinary headscarves are common in France, only about 1,900 women are believed to wear face-covering veils. The main body representing French Muslims says such garb is not suitable in France, but it worries that

A government document reveals that the Obama administration is planning to cut the U.S. nuclear stockpile by up to 40 percent by 2021. The Energy Department document provides details of the reductions that President Barack Obama has called for on a path to eliminating nuclear weapons. The reductions continue a trajectory of cuts that already has reduced U.S. stockpiles by about 75 percent since 1989. In May the administration said that it had 5,113 nuclear warheads. The new document says the administration would like to reduce that number to a range of 3,000 to 3,500. The document was presented to Congress in May and posted Tuesday on the websites of the Federation of American Scientists and the Union of Concerned Scientists.

BP set to try to end gulf spill

In a potentially pivotal moment in the Gulf crisis, BP planned to begin closing valves Tuesday in a slow and methodical process that could finally choke off the geyser of crude at the bottom of the sea after three gloomy months and up to 180 million gallons spilled. A new, tighter-fitting cap was lowered over the blown-out well Monday night. The next phase was to shut the openings in the 75-ton metal stack of pipes and valves gradually, one at a time, while watching pressure gauges to see if the cap would hold or any new leaks erupted. The operation was expected to begin late last night, and officials said it could last anywhere from six to 48 hours. If the cap works, it will enable BP to stop the oil from gushing into the sea, either by holding all the oil inside the well machinery like a stopper or, if the pressure is too great, channeling some though pipes to as many as four collection ships.

Roadside linguists needed in New Jersey

Police in New Jersey must explain the state’s implied consent law to motorists in a language that they understand, the state Supreme Court ruled on Monday. In a 4-3 decision, the court overturned a conviction for refusing to take an alcohol breath test because the man, who spoke only Spanish, did not understand the consequences. The court found that a Plainfield police officer failed to inform German Marquez, who is from El Salvador, in Spanish that he would automatically lose his driver’s license for seven months if he refused the test. Police had responded to a two-car accident in 2007.

The officer initially asked in English for Marquez to show his license. When the officer repeated the request in Spanish, Marquez complied. After reading Marquez a statement in English explaining the consequences of refusing the breath test, Marquez shook his head and pointed to his eye, which the officer considered uncooperative. As a result, he was charged with driving while intoxicated and refusing to take a breath test. Marquez said he didn’t understand what police were reading to him and that he had taken his driver’s license exam in Spanish. He later testified through an interpreter that he had taken two Percocet tablets for pain associated with an eye injury, and that the painkiller made him sleepy and dizzy. “He was read his rights in a meaningless way,” said Marquez’s attorney, Michael B. Blacker, who believes the ruling by the New Jersey court is among the first to require that police give informed consent in a foreign language. “Other states have not gotten this far,” Blackman said. “This is the first case where the court has said translation is the remedy.” Peter Aseltine, a spokesman for the Attorney General’s office, said prosecutors strongly disagree with the legal rationale of the majority opinion. “There are over 150 different languages spoken in

New Jersey, according to statistics gathered by the courts,” Aseltine said. “This ruling effectively provides an immunity claim in a prosecution for violating the refusal statute for any drunk driver who speaks a language that the officer is unable to identify or translate.” Since April, the Attorney General’s Office has instituted an initiative to post the standard statements — in both audio and written formats — in nine foreign languages on a website for law enforcement officials to access. The Motor Vehicle Commission, which also offers the written driver test in the same languages, is responsible for determining what to do about the small percentage of motorists who speak other languages. Those nine foreign languages make up more than 90 percent of the translated court cases in recent years, according to court statistics. Prosecutors argued that all drivers give implied consent to take breath tests when they get their license, and that even though Marquez took his license in Spanish, he was informed of the consent laws at that time. Blackman argued that despite that, English drivers are again informed of the consequences of refusing the test, and therefore, other language speakers are also afforded that right. In their dissenting opinion, Justices Jaynee LaVecchia, joined by Justices Roberto A. Rivera-Soto and Helen E. Hoens, wrote that police need only make rea-

They said there is not a requirement that a motorist understand the consent law, especially given that the driver may be intoxicated. However, even the dissenting justices found that Marquezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s refusal conviction should be overturned since the officer initially communicated with Marquez in Spanish but made no additional efforts to talk to him in a language they knew he understood. Marquezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conviction for the driving while intoxicated charge was upheld.

The $500,000 interview

Lindsay Lohan may soon be on her way to prison, but her legal woes are turning into her biggest payday in years, according to the New York Post. Bids for the troubled starletâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pre- and postprison interviews are now coming in at over $500,000, yesterdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s article said. Major TV networks -- which technically donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay for interviews but often get around that by paying for pictures -- are putting in bids by joining forces with weekly magazines to score the big jailhouse chat, the Post reports. Meanwhile, an increasingly desperate Lohan was close to signing lawyer Robert Shapiro, who defended OJ Simpson in his murder trial, in a bid to overturn her 90-day sentence, which is to start July 20, according to the article.

The May 12 divorce filing also came a day before police responded to the Kennedy home for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;domestic incidentâ&#x20AC;? during which her husband alleged she was intoxicated, records show, the article says. It was among several police visits to the Kennedy estate in recent years, according to police incident reports, the Web site says.

300 Mafia members arrested

Police in Italy swooped upon the powerful â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ndrangheta mafia yesterday, arresting more than 300 people â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suspected top boss â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and seizing millions of dollars in assets, in one of the biggest operations against organized crime in the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history, according to the LA Times. About 3,000 police officers reportedly fanned out across the nation in the early morning sweep, which caught some suspects still in bed. Although the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ndrangheta is based in the Calabria region in the south, many of the arrests took place in the north, around Milan, where the group has increasingly shifted its operations, the article says. Authorities said the operation hit the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ndranghetaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nerve center and resulted in the dismantling of some of its key structures and clansm, according to the Times. Charges to be filed reportedly include murder, drug trafficking and extortion.

George Carlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ghost needs a new routine

A federal appeals court threw out the FCCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rules on indecent speech yesterday, in a big win for broadcasters that could lead to a new Supreme Court test of the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s power to control what is said on television and radio, according to the Wall Street Journal. A three-judge panel of the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York reportedly said the Federal Communications Commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s indecency policies violate the First Amendment and are â&#x20AC;&#x153;unconstitutionally vague, creating a chilling effect that goes far beyond the fleeting expletives at issue here,â&#x20AC;? according to yesterdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s article. The decision doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean broadcast TV and radio shows will now be littered with profanity, because advertisers and viewers would likely complain, the Journal reports. But the ruling will likely end, for now, the commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign to cleanse the airwaves of even spontaneous vulgarisms with the threat of hefty fines, the article says.

Tour de France now a two horse battle

Schleck looking to knock off defending champion With their top opponents sluggishly moving behind them, Andy Schleck and Alberto Contador pedaled strongly to the finish at Stage 9 of the Tour de France. Tour de France leader Andy Schleck is working to turn up the pressure on Alberto Contador as he and the defending champion lock into a two-way battle for supremacy. With seven-time champion Lance Armstrong and two-time runner-up Cadel Evans of Australia out of contention, Schleck leads Spaniard Contador by just 41 seconds after Tuesday’s 9th stage and the Luxembourg rider is trying to unsettle his Spanish rival. “I think we’re pretty equal,” Schleck said. “If he wants to win this, he’s got to attack me.” Sandy Casar won the stage in a thrilling sprint finish, with Schleck and Contador closing in fast as the Frenchman crossed the line narrowly ahead of LuisLeon Sanchez of Spain and Damiano Cunego of Italy. The front three clocked 5 hours, 38 minutes, 10 seconds, two seconds faster than Schleck and Contador. “The others can also attack, but they don’t,” Schleck said. “Right now it looks like it’s Alberto vs. me.” Contador was only moderately impressed. “I should not be distracted, but like I said yesterday,

the most dangerous is Andy Schleck,” he said. Schleck claimed after Sunday’s 8th stage—the one which effectively destroyed both Evans and Armstrong’s Tour chances—that Contador was showing signs of weakness. The 25-year-old Schleck still hopes to “find a weak day when he is not super, and I can gain more time on him.” Contador dominated the Tour climbs last year, but Schleck is stronger now and trying to apply pressure. Tuesday’s stage knocked the overnight leader Evans out of the equation, and he is unlikely to get a podium place. Riding with a fractured left elbow, Evans dropped to 18th place overall and nearly eight minutes behind Schleck. Lance Armstrong, who was affected by three crashes Sunday, fared better Tuesday, finishing the stage in 18th place compared to 61st. Armstrong and his RadioShack team are now focusing on getting his fellow American rider Levi Leipheimer into a podium place. Spanish rider Samuel Sanchez is third and is 1:14 ahead of Leipheimer, who is sixth overall ahead of Wednesday’s 10th stage from Chambery to Gap: a 179-kilometer (111.1-mile) route featuring a single category 1 climb.

“We have got to help Levi stay up as high as he can,” Armstrong said. “With his ability to time trial, hopefully we can come close to (getting him on) the podium.” Tuesday’s Madeleine pass was familiarly grueling for Armstrong. “It’s steep at the end and it’s high. It’s just hard. That’s a legitimate climb,” Armstrong said. “It’s certainly the hardest climb we’ve done this year. There’s no hiding on the Madeleine.” Wednesday’s stage, however, may or may not bring back fond memories for Armstrong. Back in 2003, and seven years to the day, the stage also finished in Gap on July 14. As Armstrong raced on a boiling hot day, his Spanish rival Joseba Beloki broke suddenly and fell in front of him when they zoomed down a hill with sharp bends. Beloki’s fall on the sticky tarmac forced Armstrong to swerve dramatically, pick up his bike, run across a field and down a short bank before re-saddling. “I hope I stay out of the field (on Wednesday),” Armstrong said, ironically, reflecting on 2003, the year he almost lost the Tour to Ullrich. “There’s no way I could pull that off two times in a row.” Wednesday’s 10th stage takes riders on a 111.1-mile Alpine trek from Chambery to Gap featuring a category 1 climb.

Tiger Woods gets grilled by media at St. Andrews World No. 1 still favorite to win on The Old Course Tiger Woods early feedback on how he is handling the media has been better at the British Open then it was at the U.S. Open. Asked about his marriage at the U.S. Open, he snapped back, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s none of your business.â&#x20AC;? Asked on Tuesday if his divorce is final, Woods calmly said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to go into that.â&#x20AC;? One reporter grilled him on his language, his spitting, throwing clubs and verbal outbursts on the golf course, then asked if he had any plans to be respectful at the home of golf â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to become a better player and a better person, yes,â&#x20AC;? Woods replied. Of the 34 questions he fielded, only 16 of them were related to his game, the claret jug and St. Andrews. Then again, Woods already has answered plenty of questions about winning an Open at the home of golf. The way he has played the last two times at St. Andrews, it looks as though he owns the place. Woods, who is using a new putter this week for the first time since 1999, captured his first claret jug in 2000 when he did not hit into a single bunker all week.

He won by eight shots with a record score to par of 19-under 269, and won by five shots when the Open returned to St. Andrews five years later. No one has ever won the claret jug three times at St. Andrews. Woods remains the betting favorite, and not even his biggest rivals dispute that he likely will be a factor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to play well here because he has a lot of heart, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got an incredible short game and he hits the ball a long ways,â&#x20AC;? Phil Mickelson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His irons are as good as anybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the game, and I think the golf course â&#x20AC;Ś heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obviously won on it twice. He has gutted out two fourth-place finishes in majors when he probably didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have his best stuff, and this course sets up very well for him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So he will be in contention on Sunday,â&#x20AC;? Mickelson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how anybody can question that.â&#x20AC;? Woods caused a small stir last week when he flew to Ireland for a two-day charity event that ended Tuesday, and instead of staying to get adjusted to links golf, flew home to Florida to spend time with his children.

Mickelson: Career not complete without a win at St. Andrews During a press conference on Tuesday, World No. 2 Phil Mickelson showed confidence and a will to win at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s British Open at St. Andrews. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I expect to play well here, I really do,â&#x20AC;? Mickelson said Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I expect to be in contention.â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been very fortunate to have support from fans,â&#x20AC;? Mickelson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meant a lot to me over the course of my career. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made it fun to go to the golf course, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made it fun to interact with people, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made it fun to spend time after rounds signing autographs and interacting.â&#x20AC;&#x153; For Mickelson, who has captured three green jackets at Augusta along with a PGA Championship, there would be no better place to win another than The Old Course. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A career just doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel complete unless youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve won here at St. Andrews,â&#x20AC;? Mickelson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think all the players feel the same way.â&#x20AC;? Mickelson will get another shot

at claiming the third leg of a career Grand Slam, an accomplishment that would truly push him into a class as one of the greats of the game. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also got a chance to snare the No. 1 spot in the world rankings, which has belonged to Woods for more than five years. While Mickelson brushed off having any extra motivation to supplant his longtime rival in the top

position, he did concede it would mean a lot to see his name at the head of the list for the first time in his career. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, no, I care,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I were to accomplish that in my careerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; and I have some chances hereâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it would be something. Whether it was for one week or a month or a year, however long, just to be able to say you did it, especially in Tigerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s era, it would be incredible.â&#x20AC;? Mickelson turned 40 last month, so he might have more prime years behind him than in front of him. He also knows that Woodsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; inconsistent play since returning from five months off to deal with the sex scandal isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t likely to last much longer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know that my window of opportunity is small because Tiger is going to start playing some of his better golf here soon, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to get my butt in gear,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to try hard to do that this week.â&#x20AC;?

People will continue to buy marijuana, he said, with dispensaries or without them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did not create this market out of thin air, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to stay,â&#x20AC;? Honan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go to Summit County, or Garfield or Aspen, and spend their dollars there. The seven dispensaries have crushed the black market. A ban would have the opposite effect.â&#x20AC;?

something. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not open now, you cannot get a license to open until July 2011, Treu said. The voters will likely decide The commissioners say theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably send the issue to the voters. The voters have much more information and knowledge than they did when they approved Amendment 20 in 2000, said Jon Stavney, county commissioner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I lean toward moving this toward the voters,â&#x20AC;? Stavney said. Commissioner Peter Runyon said he also supports sending it to the voters. After a lengthy statement, he said that their issue is to do the will of the voters. To do that, he said, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to let the Body Politic cast its ballot. If the ballot measure actually makes it to the ballot, it would ask if voters want an outright ban on medicinal marijuana dispensaries, said County Commissioner Sara Fisher. It would probably ask voters to decide the matter in this Novemberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general election when voter interest and turnout would be higher, than in an off-year election in 2011, said Stavney and Runyon. In the meantime, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ask the staff to create a resolution that would enable existing medical marijuana dispensaries to continue dispensing while state lawmakers continue to sort it all out.

those debts are paid off. It would required that tax rollback even if the debt was repaid by revenue the project generated and not tax dollars. The countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $6 million recycling facility at the landfill is one example. â&#x20AC;˘ No state government debt, ever.

15 Bottles of Muse Wine

$ raced both together and against each other. They were part of the first American adventure racing team to win one of the popular Eco Challenge races which took place between 1995 and 2002. Now, Mattison -- a partner at Timberline -- is putting his energy into organizing an adventure race rather than participating in one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did a trial run last summer and the kids just loved it,â&#x20AC;? Mattison said last night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Rec District was there and also showed interest, and the rest is history.â&#x20AC;? The race, which will take place Saturday, Aug.7, will pit children, ages 6 through 12, against each other in teams of two in a variety of outdoor sports and challenges including mountain biking, hiking, tubing, archery, a low ropes course, a zip line, Tarzan rope, slip-n-slide, mud pit and more. Mattison says he came up with the features by thinking of all the things he would have loved to do when he was a kid. He says the race will emphasize teamwork, problem solving and fun, as well as encourage team independence. Family members will be only allowed to watch as the teams of two navigate the course on their own. Mattisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 7-year-old son Liam was one of the lucky kids who had a chance to test the course last summer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was great, awesome,â&#x20AC;? said Mattison. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Zip line, biking, tubing, archery ... I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait for the mud pit this year.â&#x20AC;? The race will begin at 9 a.m. at the base of Vail Mountain. Registration costs $150 per team of two and teams will be divided between three age groups: 6 to 7 years old, 8 to 9 years old and 10 to 12 years old. Registration will be limited to the first 50 teams, and only a few team spots remained as of last night. They will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis through Aug. 2. To register, call the VRD at 970-479-2280.
