ROCK MUSIC IS HERE After 8150 and State Bridge, local music scene spreads out By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer Three years after the passing of famed Vail nightclub 8150, local bars and small music venues around the valley continue to book big-time bands from all over the country. Known everywhere for it’s bouncy dance floor, 8150 (formally Garton’s) was a 600-person capacity nightclub at Crossroads that hosted names like Dave

A weaker economic forecast from the Federal Reserve chilled the stock market’s winning streak. Stocks closed mixed yesterday, with the Dow Jones industrial average rising almost 4 points for its seventh straight advance. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 3.70, or 0.04 percent, to 10,366.72. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 0.17, or 0.02 percent, to 1,095.17.

BP begins testing new cap in Gulf

BP allayed last-minute government fears of making the disaster worse and started trying to slowly choke off the flow of oil into the Gulf of Mexico last night, in the hope of finally stopping the leak. Retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, the Obama administration’s point man on the disaster, said the government gave the go-ahead after carefully reviewing the risks of the procedure. The plan is a test of whether a new temporary well cap can withstand the pressure and ultimately contain the oil. “What we didn’t want to do is compound that problem by making an irre[See THE UPDATE, pages 10-11]

And State Bridge, north of Wolcott, was the summertime spot for artists like Leftover Salmon and Merl Saunders before it burned down in 2007, the same year 8150 went away. Bar owners have been trying to fill the void left by the two venues, and several smaller concert sites have sprouted up around town in hopes of being the next

Now it’s way more spread out, and local bands have benefited from more venues booking shows. That’s the one and only good thing that has come out of it.” Of course, we still have big shows provided by Hot Summer Nights, Snow Daze and Spring Back to Vail. But, when [See ROCK MUSIC, page 19]

Vail Symposium summer film series starts tonight

For many years the Vail Symposium has brought an eclectic array of films to the Vail Valley. This summer’s lineup is no different, featuring three thought-provoking films, “Life.Support.Music.,” “Amreeka,” and “The Oath.” “Life.Support.Music.,” will be shown tonight at the Vilar Performing Arts Center. The Symposium is pleased to announce the return of esteemed film-critic Walter Chaw, whose expertise will allow for greater discussion and insight about the films. Chaw is the senior critic at Filmfreakcentral.net and watches more than 400 films a year. He has participated for a number of years in the Film Series. The Summer Film Series is an essential part of the Vail Symposium’s summer programming.

CORRECTIONS

Sapkota not a sex slave

A story in Saturday’s paper incorrectly stated that Shanta Sapkota from Nepal was sold as a sex slave at age 12. That is not correct. Sapkota was given in an arranged marriage at age 12. She lived in that situation until age 25, when she left to care for people who had been swept up in human trafficking. She

soon founded the Peace Rehabilitation Center, which rescues victims of human trafficking. It is estimated that between 12,000 and 18,000 people, mostly girls and women, become victims of human trafficking. In large part, they end up in brothels in Indian and other places around the world.

Human trafficking is the No. 2 crime revenue activity in the world today, according to a 2010 report from the U.S. State Department. Sapkota gave a presentation Sunday afternoon at Vail Christian High School to outline the problem and explain what can be done to combat it and help these victims.

Vail, not Bravo!, charging for parking

In a story that ran on Wednesday, July 7 we reported that the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival charged $5 for close-in parking for specific events. Parking is $5

for those events, but it’s the town of Vail that’s charging the fee, not the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival.

Tonight’s Vail Valley music scene The Laughing Bones at Bearfish, West Vail

Local bluegrass band Laughing Bones plays some good bluegrass and some good new-grass, banjo player Patrick Padgett recently said. “But we stick to how we started, which is a more eclectic, roots-rock, country deal and then we started playing a lot of bluegrass songs,” he said. “At a Laughing Bones show, definitely plan on doing some dancing, having some drinks and probably a cab ride home.” They play Bearfish tonight at 9 p.m. The show is free.

Kayte Kelly and Marc Trevino at Vista, Arrowhead

Singer Kayte Kelly and guitarist Marc Trevino have been playing together in the valley for five years. They will be playing an eclectic mix of music ranging from jazz, blues and soul to rock and country, covering artists from Ella Fitzgerald to Stevie Nicks and Bonnie Raitt. The show is scheduled to go from 5:30 to 8 p.m.

FGF’s Andrew Portwood and Trevor Jones at Main Street Grill, Edwards

Andrew Portwood and Trevor Jones of Frogs Gone Fishin’ play as a duo tonight. “We will be playing songs from our decade of writing and performing music together,” Portwood said. So, grab a barstool, couch, chair, lean on the wall or dance it up, but you must be present for this one.

Taylor Hilliard at The Club, Vail Village

Taylor Hilliard, nephew of George Hilliard, who has been playing acoustic rock in Vail for years, is taking

the stage tonight. He plays acoustic Southern rock – everything from country to alternative rock and classic rock. The whole thing started when Uncle George was playing one night at The Club this past winter. Taylor got up on stage and showed everybody that he could play, too. “I’ve always been around music. My dad and my uncle both play, so I got my first guitar when I was real little,” Hilliard said. “I’m a Southern boy. I played a bunch down in Georgia at some of the local bars – made the move out here and I’m getting it started up again.” The show starts at 10 p.m.

“Whether it is simply the joyful sound of celebration in a swinging jazz tune that inspires us to dance and move together or the primal, evocative chorus of devotional chanting (Kirtan), music connects us. The huge spectrum and diversity of musical styles and cultures is accessible to anyone with open ears and an open heart. Through the experience of this vast offering, we can discern what moves us at our core and go more deeply into the music that brings us to a greater recognition of ourselves and our connection to all others,” says his Web site. The show starts at 5:30 p.m.

Savvy Country Band at Saltwater Cowboy, Avon

After the Beaver Creek Rodeo, mosey on over to the Saltwater Cowboy for the Savvy Country Band. “Our 6-piece band has years of entertaining experience that will insure you and you a great time. You can just listen to the music and dance to your hearts delight,” the group says. “We enjoy songs that mean something and will leave you with an everlasting memory. Our theme is mostly country, country rock and some good oldies that will make everyone dance at any age.” The show kicks off after the rodeo.

relax in stage 10 Andy Schleck of Luxembourg kept hold of the Tour de France race leaderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yellow jersey little difficulty on a day when the main contenders were happy to sit back and let others do the suffering. After several days of brutal racing and crashes in searing heat combined to knock both seven-time Lance Armstrong and two-time Tour runner-up Cadel Evans out of contention for the title, yesterdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10th stage was never going to be contested by the likes of Schleck or defending champion Alberto Contador. Instead, the day after a mammoth stage trying to outwit each other in the high Alps, Contador and Schleck stayed safely in the main

pack on another scorching hot day over the 179-kilometer (111.2-mile) trek from Chambery to Gap. It featured only one difficult climbâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the Laffrey pass. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were happy to let the breakaway go. That allowed us to ride at an easy pace for most of the day,â&#x20AC;? said Schleck, who leads the twotime winner Contador by 41 seconds overall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was very, very hot and I think most of the guys are still feeling the effects of (Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) stage.â&#x20AC;? They rolled in more than 14 minutes behind stage winner Sergio Paulinhoâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Armstrongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s RadioShack teammate. The top 3 did not change, with Samuel Sanchez of Spain still 2:45

Armstrong warns against doping â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;witch huntâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Lance Armstrong said yesterday he will cooperate with a â&#x20AC;&#x153;fair investigationâ&#x20AC;? but not a â&#x20AC;&#x153;witch huntâ&#x20AC;? into allegations that he and his former cycling team were involved in doping. Armstrong was responding to reports of a federal investigation of possible fraud and doping charges against him and former associates. He spoke before the 10th stage of the Tour de France, where he is 31st overall. The New York Times reported that authorities have issued grand jury subpoenas to witnesses as part of the probe into allegations made by American cyclist Floyd Landis. Landis, who was stripped of his 2006 Tour title for doping, said the use of banned substances was common on the US Postal team when he rode with Armstrong.

behind Schleck. But Armstrong lost more time and is over 17 minutes adrift, although the 38-year-old conceded that his Tour bid was over after he was affected by three crashes on Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chaotic first stage in the Alps. Paulinho edged Vasil Kiryienka of Belarus in a sprint to the line after four riders had formed an early breakaway, and then two more joined them while the others just dropped off and saved energy. Paulinho, meanwhile, had just about enough energy left to sprint. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been dreaming of this since I was a little child,â&#x20AC;? Paulinho, who won silver at the 2004 Olympics in the road race, said after his first Tour stage winâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and RadioShackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first of this race.

Armstrong said he had not been subpoenaed or contacted by lead investigator Jeff Novitzky. He said he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t aware of any riders who have been subpoenaed. He said stories are being leaked to the media as part of an â&#x20AC;&#x153;agendaâ&#x20AC;? against him and questioned the need for a federal probe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Would the American people feel like this is a good use of their tax dollars?â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for them to [See DOPING WHICH HUNT, page 18]

Power forward Al Harrington says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s headed to Denver The Denver Nuggets got their big man. Now, will they keep their star? Free agent power forward Al Harrington says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s headed to the Nuggets, who are in dire need of frontcourt help with Kenyon Martin, Chris Andersen and Nene coming off leg injuries. Now it appears the ball is in All-Star Carmelo Anthonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frontcourt. Anthony, who is on his honeymoon after marrying television personality LaLa Vazquez in New York over the weekend, is mulling a three-year $65 million contract extension that would keep him in Denver through 2015. Anthony has said he wanted to see the team bolster its frontcourt, a sentiment shared by the front office, which failed to get back into the draft last month to

draft a big man and then was unsuccessful in its pursuits of free agents Jermaine Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neal, who went to Boston, and Udonis Haslem, who stayed in Miami. If Anthony rejects the Nuggetsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; extension, he would be the headliner of the 2011 free agent class a year after LeBron James) and Chris Bosh took their talents to South Beach to play with Dwyane Wade and the Heat. At the NBA finals last month, Anthony said he would like to see the Nuggets add some talent to the roster following their first-round flop in the playoffs a year after reaching the Western Conference finals. Here comes Harrington, a 6-foot-9 forward who averaged 17.7 points and 5.6 rebounds last season. One of his best games was in Denver on Nov. 27, when he scored 41 but Anthony had 50 in the Nuggetsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 128-125 win.

$5 LeBron pendant pays off for Ohio woman An Ohio woman who paid $5 at a yard sale for a LeBron James pendant she thought was costume jewelry has found out itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth nearly $10,000. Twenty-year-old Vaneisha Robinson says she used to wear the basketball jersey-shaped pendant to high school when she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

know its value. Then she had it appraised. The International Gemological Institute says Robinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s find is the real deal. Gemologist Jerry Ehrenwald says the 14-karat white gold pendant sports more than 2 carats of diamonds. The No. 23 jersey reads â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kingâ&#x20AC;?

on the front and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jamesâ&#x20AC;? on the back. Robinson is an amateur boxer in Jamesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hometown of Akron, Ohio. She has listed the jewelry on eBay. She says the Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brand will never die even though heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s left the Cleveland Cavaliers to play for the Miami Heat.

MLB All-Star game earns record-low TV rating Major League Baseballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s All-Star game has earned its lowest-ever television rating. The National Leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3-1 victory Tuesday night on Fox earned a 7.5 fast national rating and 13 share. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s down 16 percent from the 8.9/15 for last sea-

THE UPDATE

--------

versible mistake,” he said at the end of a 24-hour rollercoaster of hopes raised, hopes dashed and hopes raised again along the Gulf Coast. The cap — a 75-ton metal stack of pipes and valves — was lowered onto the well on Monday in hopes of either bottling up the oil inside the well machinery, or capturing it and funneling it to the surface. But before BP could test the equipment, the government intervened because of second thoughts about whether the buildup of pressure from the gushing oil could rupture the walls of the well and make the leak worse. “We sat long and hard about delaying the tests,” Allen said. He said that the pause was necessary in the interest of the public, the environment and safety, and that officials were convinced the test could go forward. 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 lines to as many as four collection ships.

Your tax dollars at work

House Republican Leader John Boehner says look to his state Pennsylvania for evidence of President Obama’s Executive Order on taxpayer-funded abortion being not all that it seems. “Boehner and other Republicans point to reports that the Health and Human Services Department is giving Pennsylvania $160 million to set up a new high-risk insurance pool that will cover any abortion that is legal in the state,” according to a report on CNSNews.com. “The fact that the high-risk pool insurance program in Pennsylvania will use federal taxpayer dollars to fund abortions is unconscionable,” Boehner was quoted saying in the report. “Just last month at the White House, I asked President Obama to provide the American people with a progress report on the implementation of his Executive Order, which purports to ban taxpayer-funding of abortions. Unfortunately, the President provided no information, and the American people are still waiting for answers.” Obama reportedly pledged that under his health care plan “no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions, and federal conscience laws will remain in place.”

Bloated government considers fat tax

There’s an early push to explore taxing soft drinks that are sweetened with sugars – all to get you to stop buying them, reports CBS 2 Chicago’s Kristyn Hartman. “A militia of groups is in its fetal stages of drawing out a plan to fight fat in Illinois . Sugared beverage consumption has been related with rising obesity rates – so it’s getting some attention,” Hartman reports. “Pop after pop might feel good going down, but it can put on the pounds. That’s the case with any higher calorie drink.” In Illinois, which has the fourth worst rate of childhood obesity, talk of taxation has begun. “Some of the

Better than a beer cooler

A Cuban migrant who spent 25 days afloat in Florida Straits aboard a seven-foot makeshift Styrofoam boat remained aboard a U.S. Coast Guard vessel Wednesday morning as American officials weighed whether to return him to Cuba or let him come ashore for hospital care according to a report from the Miami Herald. Marilyn Fajardo, a Coast Guard spokeswoman in Miami, was reported saying her â&#x20AC;&#x153;agency cannot provide any details on the migrant until a decision is made.â&#x20AC;? But she also noted that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;in general, any migrants rescued at sea are given medical attention, food, water and clothing after they arrive on a cutter.â&#x20AC;? The case has drawn worldwide attention because of the circumstances and questions surrounding the voyage from Cuba and how the man managed to survive -- perhaps without enough or any food and water for more than three weeks.

Aggressive Attorneys ' !# '$# #!&#" '&#" '!##" '!$# ' #!!$" $!" '   !#

Nancy Pelosi is not happy with the forecast about the midterms Robert Gibbs made. At a House Democratic Caucus meeting this week, she allegedly described him as â&#x20AC;&#x153;politically ineptâ&#x20AC;? for acknowledging that Republicans could regain the House in November, in a CQ Politics report. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was bad,â&#x20AC;? said one alleged source. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was like: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appreciate it. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know who this guy is. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never met him before. And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s saying that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to lose the House.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? At one point, a â&#x20AC;&#x153;very upsetâ&#x20AC;? Pelosi allegedly asked a White House rep at the meeting whether Gibbs was speaking for himself or the White House, and the liaison responded that Gibbs appeared to be speaking off the cuff. The press chief has been doing damage control in recent days. Yesterday, he was quoted saying he had a â&#x20AC;&#x153;cordialâ&#x20AC;? relationship with the speaker and emphatically predicted that Democrats â&#x20AC;&#x153;will retain the House and Senate,â&#x20AC;? CQ Politics reports.

BMX race series continues in Eagle

The local BMX bicycle race series runs every Sunday afternoon until it’s too cold to ride, and that won’t happen this week. Signups start at 12:30 p.m. Racing follows as soon as everyone is signed up. The track is in Eagle, next to the Eagle pool and ice rink. Local BMX racers dedicated the new track a few weeks ago with a ribbon cutting and general fun having. The town of Eagle donated the land and WECMRD is helping run the program. Local volunteers helped build it. You can do a one-race trial for free. A one-month membership to the American Bicycle Association costs $35; a year membership is $45. You are required to wear full face helmet is required to race. That keeps you from getting your nose scuffed up if you crash, which race organizers say hardly ever happens except to someone else. You also need to wear long sleeved shirts and long pants. The American Bicycle Association is the largest BMX sanctioning body in the world right now. For information call Mountain Pedlar in Eagle at 328-3478. They’re also running starting gate practice at the BMX track, 6:30 p.m. Thursdays. It costs $3.

THE UPDATE ----------------------------------------------------------terday to steer attention away from an NAACP resoluWhite House thinks tion condemning racism within the tea party movement, saying focus should remain on jobs and an upcoming Al Qaeda is racist march in Washington.

In an interview earlier today with the South African Broadcasting Corporation to air in a few hours, reported ABC, President Obama disparaged al Qaeda and affiliated groups’ willingness to kill Africans in a manner that White House aides say was an argument that the terrorist groups are racist. Speaking about the Uganda bombings, the president was reported saying, “What you’ve seen in some of the statements that have been made by these terrorist organizations is that they do not regard African life as valuable in and of itself. They see it as a potential place where you can carry out ideological battles that kill innocents without regard to long-term consequences for their short-term tactical gains.” ABC reported that earlier yesterday a senior administration official said the Obama administration believes that Al Shabaab carried out the attack. Explaining the president’s comment, an administration official allegedly said Mr. Obama “references the fact that both U.S. intelligence and past al Qaeda actions make clear that al Qaeda -- and the groups like al Shabaab that they inspire -- do not value African life. The actions of al Qaeda and the groups that it has inspired show a willingness to sacrifice innocent African life to reach their targets.” This can be seen, the official told ABC, in the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, when hundreds of Africans were killed and thousands wounded.

NAACP thinks Tea Party is racist

One thing is clear as the NAACP gathers this week for its 101st annual meeting: The civil rights organization is intent on being seen as still relevant, writes Susan Jones of the Washington Post. Even former Alaska governor Sarah Palin sent out a Twitter message about the group Tuesday, helping to make the NAACP convention a hot topic on conservative Web sites. She allegedly condemned the organization’s passage of a resolution denouncing what it allegedly called “racist elements” within the tea-bagger movement. The statement, which gained overwhelming support throughout the group’s voting members, sparked a round of denials from grass-roots conservatives and lots of media coverage. NAACP President Benjamin Jealous also released a letter to BP chief executive Tony Hayward, asking to meet with company officials to discuss his “outrage” that minority contractors are apparently being left out in the cleanup of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, according to the Post. The organization also hopes to open up a dialogue on charter schools, and has invited Education Secretary Arne Duncan, Harlem Children’s Zone founder Geoffrey Canada and others to discuss the issue.

The Palin family plan

The tumultuous relationship between Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston took another surprising turn Wednesday, when the couple announced they were back together and recently got engaged. The abrupt reunion between Sarah Palin’s daughter and the father of her toddler son felt like a flashback to 2008, when the couple shared the spotlight at the Republican National Convention. The romance later devolved into a messy tabloid drama as Johnston posed for Playgirl, trashed Sarah Palin in interviews and fought with the Palins over custody. The fact that the two are back together isn’t likely to be a bad thing for Sarah Palin as she leaves the door open to a possible run for president in 2012. “I think that the best solution for her longterm, and that’s a little calculating to say — but looking just purely from a political standpoint, the best solution for her is a successful reconcilation between Bristol and Levi,” said Tim Miller, a public affairs consultant who also worked on John McCain’s campaign in Iowa before Palin joined the ticket as the vice presidential nominee in 2008. In this week’s celebrity glossy Us Weekly, 19-yearold Bristol Palin and 20-year-old Johnston say they’re engaged, marking a rapid turnaround for the couple that just months ago was fighting over child support and Johnston’s critical comments about the family. The two are on the cover with their 18-month-old son, Tripp. The lead-in tease: “The reunited couple reveal their sudden, secret engagement — and why they hid it from Sarah.” They tell the magazine they reconnected while working out a custody plan and got engaged two weeks ago. Bristol Palin said she found the idea of telling her mother about the engagement “intimidating and scary” but hoped she’d “jump on board.” “It felt right, even though we don’t have the approval of our parents,” she said.

Jackson deflected questions about the resolution during a news conference outside the annual convention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People in Kansas City. “We will not be diverted or otherwise distracted by any other message except putting America back to work,” Jackson said a day after convention delegates approved the resolution. “We want jobs and justice and peace.” Sharpton was a little more direct, saying issues surrounding the tea party go beyond claims of racism. He said the civil rights movement sought to pressure the federal government to step in when states were enforcing segregation laws, and the tea party’s focus on states’ rights puts people at risk. “They talk about restoring dignity. They are really talking about restoring a time before the federal government intervened and protected the rights of people,” Sharpton said.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------Wednesday that he has undergone surgery to install a small pump to help his heart work, as the 69-year-old enters a new phase of what he called â&#x20AC;&#x153;increasing congestive heart failure.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The operation went very well and I am now recuperating,â&#x20AC;? a still-hospitalized Cheney said in a statement. The kind of heart pump that Cheney received can be implanted next to the heart to help its main pumping chamber, the left ventricle, pump blood through the body. Such devices are used mainly for short periods, to buy potential transplant candidates time as they await a donor organ. But they are being studied for use as a permanent therapy for people with severe heart failure who arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t transplant candidates. The surgery took place last week at Inova Fairfax Heart and Vascular Institute in Washingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Northern Virginia suburbs, where Cheney was receiving care Wednesday. A longtime face of the Republican Party, Cheney has dealt with heart problems much of his adult life, suffering five heart attacks since age 37. He said the latest step, the implanting of a pump called a left ventricular assist device, will allow him to resume an active life.

Illegal immigrants hold DC â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;teach-inâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to push bill

They canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get citizenship or in-state tuition rates, so theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking the next steps â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Capitol and White House steps, that is. A coalition of student immigrant advocacy groups in Massachusetts, Colorado and California on Wednesday launched a makeshift school in the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital, reminiscent of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;teach-insâ&#x20AC;? of the 1960s, to encourage a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants through college enrollment. The first class at â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dream Universityâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a school with informal classes and volunteer professors and instructors from around the country â&#x20AC;&#x201D; was held Wednesday outside the White House, with more planned in the weeks ahead. Students donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get credit for the classes, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re free. The first class of about 27 students, several wearing white DREAM University T-shirts, gathered at Lafayette Park, across from the White House. Cady Landa, a former Boston public schoolteacher, led the students in a discussion of a report recently released by the Migration Policy Institute, a Washington think tank. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not only an education,â&#x20AC;? Landa said about the protest classes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turning around a terrible situation and making it a positive situation.â&#x20AC;? Pedro Perez, who is attending college in Wisconsin, said being in the country illegally forced him to turn down a private school scholarship. Because they are in the country illegally, the students canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work to pay their way through school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to go back to Mexico. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like an unknown country to me. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been here since I was 3,â&#x20AC;? Perez said.

The classes could allow undocumented students who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford tuition rates in some states a chance to attend classes, said Carlos Saavedra, national coordinator for a Washington-based group called United We Dream.

Anything except diet and exercise

An experimental diet pill helped about half the people who tried it lose some weight and keep it off a year later, without the heart problems that some earlier drugs caused, a study found. Arena Pharmaceuticalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lorcaserin is one of three drugs that are boosting hope for a new generation of more effective weight-loss medicines. One gets a Food and Drug Administration review on Thursday and the others, later this year. In the study, lorcaserin (lore-KASS-ah-rin) caused more people to lose at least 5 percent of their body weight over one year, more than twice the rate achieved by those on dummy pills. Most people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stick to diets. And diet pills have had bad side effects or canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be taken long-term. A low point came in 1997 when the popular â&#x20AC;&#x153;fen-phenâ&#x20AC;? was pulled from the market after it was tied to heart valve problems. But now comes lorcaserin, a round blue tablet that would be the first truly novel weight-loss pill in a dozen years if it wins approval. The drug targets the same appetite pathway fen-phen did but in a more selective, and perhaps safer, manner. Results of a large company-funded study of it are in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s New England Journal of Medicine.

Not our problem anymore

The U.S. military has handed over Tariq Aziz and dozens of other members of Saddam Husseinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inner circle to Iraqi authorities who will assume control today of the last American-run detention facility in the country. Although the Americans will continue to hold 200 problematic detainees, the changing of the guard at Camp Cropper will mean the end of a mammoth U.S. prison system that has processed more than 100,000 Iraqis in the seven years since the fall of Baghdad. It will also close a chapter on one of the most bitter legacies of the war, the shocking images in 2004 of prisoners being abused by American soldiers at Abu Ghraib. For Iraq, the transfer of detainees marks a milestone on the road to full sovereignty. But it also puts to the test a democratically elected government that many believe has learned few positive lessons from the abuses of Saddamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regime. Despite Abu Ghraib â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or perhaps because of reforms in its wake â&#x20AC;&#x201D; prisoners have more recently said they receive far better treatment in American custody than in Iraqi jails.

prison where Sunni detainees were allegedly tortured was a black eye for the Shiite-led government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. Prisoners in other facilities have repeatedly complained about torture and beatings by the police, as well as overcrowding and poor conditions behind bars.

The man who pleaded guilty to carrying out the attempted Times Square car bombing appeared in a video recorded before the failed attack that shows him meeting with senior Pakistani Taliban leaders and vowing to strike the U.S. In the video, aired in segments yesterday by the Dubai-based television station Al-Arabiya, Faisal

He also said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe that other riders had come forward with similar allegations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the government will build a case on Floyd Landis,â&#x20AC;? said Armstrong, who has never tested positive for use of banned substances. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His credibility left a long time ago.â&#x20AC;? Armstrong said the allegations should be investigated by the international cycling body, UCI, or the World Anti-Doping Agency. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you think that you have an ath-

Shahzad said the attack on the New York City landmark would avenge the deaths of Muslims killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the Muslim Arabs that have been martyred â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I will take revenge on their behalf,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really wish that the hearts of the Muslims will be pleased with this attack, God willing.â&#x20AC;? One of the figures he praises as a martyr is Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the former leader of al-Qaida in Iraq who was killed in a U.S. airstrike in Iraq in 2006. Shahzad, 30, is seen in the video sitting on the ground in a black turban and olive-colored vest, with an AK-47 next to him. He calls jihad, or holy war, a pillar of the Muslim faith, and says â&#x20AC;&#x153;Islam will spread on the whole world and democracy will be defeated.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

ROCK MUSIC IS HERE

––-------------------------------------

19

[From page 1]

you can’t speak the name of the series without a preface like “Bud Light presents,” the vibe becomes more corporate and less grassroots.

Sandbar plans to host a bunch of shows this summer like Juice and Polytoxic, and they’re working on booking Lubriphonic from Illinois.

Big bands being booked in Avon The Saltwater Cowboy in the Boat Building is making huge moves this summer to attract music fans by booking groups like the Radiators, Dirty Dozen Brass Band (all nine members), and Whitewater Ramble. “I’m going bring the big names in, and we’ll see if the locals support it,” said Saltwater Cowboy owner Steve Bullock. “I know a lot of other places are kind of doing the same thing right now. It’s a big risk for us, but if the locals come out, we can continue to bring music into town.” Along the same lines, Agave at the base of Beaver Creek hosted one of the godfathers of hip-hop KRSOne before a packed house last weekend, and they’ve booked the Motet, one of the hottest electro-jam bands out there. For Agave, the big-name acts come on the heels of a renovation to the Mexican eatery that made the venue more concert-friendly last year. New additions include a bigger performing area, wrap around balcony that opens to the stage below, as well as a giant projector screen to visually convey the performance upstairs. “For us, it can be frustrating at times when the valley doesn’t support the music like we think they would,” said Agave owner Richard Wheelock. “We’re doing OK with it, but that’s only because we’re a restaurant first. I would never put my money into just being a club in this valley. But we love doing it.”

Bands looking for a place to play Paddy’s in Eagle-Vail has always hosted music in town, but under the new ownership of Robb and Susan Swim, music has become a priority and has really been getting people in the door, they say. “I think people are loving it,” said Susan Swim, who bought the Eagle-Vail pub in the spring. “We’ve had some amazing people playing at Paddy’s, and that’s what the goal is – to become a legendary music venue. We knew absolutely from the beginning that music was going to be a big part of the new Paddy’s.” Paddy’s constantly has local artists playing on their big, new stage, but they also book bands touring through Colorado like Tugg, a reggae group from Lacrosse, Wis., for next week. Swim said the band contacted her when they heard Paddy’s was a great place to play. JamBase, an online database for musicians and fans, provides out-of-town artists with recommendations for places to play a gig, among other services for fans. It’s something Lynne Krnack, who does the booking for Main Street Grill in Edwards, says has helped her track down musicians passing through the area. “It all started with an open mic night about nine years ago, and then we just started booking bands,” Krnack said “Honestly, we’ve been really lucky – a lot of bands have been finding us through sites like JamBase. I haven’t had to look for a band in months.”

Why no Belly Up in Vail? Most observers reject the idea that there is a lack of music enthusiasts in this town compared to Aspen, so locals have long wondered why we don’t have something like Belly Up, which attracts some of the biggest names in the business. The answer is quite simple, music insiders say. The guy who owns the famous Aspen venue is Michael Goldberg, a cash cow from San Diego, who lives in Aspen part-time. Belly Up is a passion project for him, and it’s questionable if the venue even turns a profit. The only way Vail will ever have a place like Belly Up is if someone ponies up and takes the project on under similar conditions. The closest thing we have is Sandbar, which boasts one of the best stages, lighting and sound setups in the valley. They’ve hosted the likes of Flobots, Bone Thugs and Harmony and the Reverend Horton Heat. “It’s just good to be known as a music venue in town,” Sandbar Manager Jason Barber said. “Sometimes, it can be finically beneficial, but most of the time we’re just looking to break even at the door. More than anything else, I think it’s culturally important to have live music in the Vail Valley.”

Vail Mountaineer

Summertime shift away from Vail Many veterans of the local music scene say there has been a migration away from Vail Village, certainly in the summer, due in part to a void left by 8150. Scotty Stoughton, owner of the Samana Lounge in Vail Village and front man for local reggae band Bonfire, said people in town love live music, but they’re definitely hanging out more and more down valley since the closing of 8150 and the termination of the 2 a.m. Eagle County bus from Vail. “People want live music. I’m all about the music coming into town,” Stoughton said. “I’m happy and encouraged that places down valley are picking up the ball, because that’s where everybody lives right now. People don’t want to drink and drive; there’s no late bus to Vail, so we’re taking the brunt of it in terms of summer nightlife.” Stoughton is planning on returning to ticketed shows and bringing back national bands like Big Gigantic, Great American Taxi and Elephant Revival – but not until the winter. “Garton’s put Vail on the map musically. It was a really sad day to see it go, and even sadder that nothing replaced it since then,” Stoughton said.
