Stocks were higher yesterday, but there could be volatility when the market opens today after IBM and Texas Instruments disappointed investors with second-quarter results; the problem for both was that revenue came in lower than expected. Also, homebuilder sentiment has fallen to a 15-month low. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 56.53, or 0.56 percent, to 10,154.43 The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 6.37, or 0.60 percent, to 1,071.25.

While there are still approximately 1,662 days until the Opening Ceremonies of the 2015 World Alpine Ski Championships in Vail, it’s not too early to get the party started. And organizers will do just that tonight, as the 2015 World Championships Community Celebration will be hosted in conjunction with the weekly Bud Light Hot Summer Nights free concert at the Gerald R.

Reward raised for suspect in Gypsum sex assault case Authorities searching for Jesus Martinez Delgado, 27

Win A Night at the Movies The Mountaineer is giving away

6 tickets a day for 6 days! Find the hidden bucket of popcorn in today’s paper and be one of the first three people to email the correct location in the paper and you will receive 2 FREE TICKETS to CINÉBISTRO.

In an effort to locate Jesus Martinez Delgado, the Town of Gypsum has raised the reward to $3,500, which -- in addition to the $1,000 offered by Crime Stoppers -- brings the total award amount to $4,500. Last week, Delgado, 27, was identified as the sole suspect in a sex assault through evidence left at the scene at a residence in Gypsum. The victim called 911 immediately after the suspect left her home at about 3:15 a.m. last Wednesday. Evidence there suggested that Delgado was able to enter the women’s residence through an unsecured window, prompting SherDELGADO iff Joe Hoy to issue the following statement: “Summer is the most important time to focus on home security because these are the months when you leave your windows open. Although there is no way to predict the possibility of a crime, you can reduce the risks by following these tips:â€? • Protect Sliding Doors and Windows: Installing ob-

structions from the inside will help keep criminals out even if the window/door is cracked open. Another option is installing a high-quality security chain that is mounted on the door and on the wall jamb. • Invest in Timers: One of the best ways to exercise home security is to make people think you’re at home when you’re not. A timer will turn lamps, televisions, radios and other electronics on a pre-set times even when you aren’t around to flip the switch yourself. They are particularly handy when you are gone at night but want to deter a potential thief. • Mount Outdoor Motion Detecting Lights: Lighting is a criminal’s worst nightmare because it exposes them to witnesses. If your front and back of your residence is sufficiently lighted, criminals are more likely to move on to a more vulnerable residence. If you think you may have any information regarding Delgado’s whereabouts, you are encouraged to call the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office at (970) 328-8500 or Eagle County Crime Stoppers at 970-328-7007, 1-800-972-TIPS, submit your tip online at www., or text a tip from your cell phone by texting STOPCRIME plus your message to CRIMES (274637).

Denver bank gives 14 local children new bikes CoBank employees surprise kids, themselves with donation By John Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neill Fourteen kids from the Youth Foundation shivered with excitement yesterday as they tiptoed from their hideout in the Ritz Carlton to where they were told they would retrieve brand new bicycles. In the meantime, managers from CoBank, a Denver based agricultural lending bank, listened to Tom Spaulding give a speech on community involvement. Listening to the speech, managers pieced together 14 new bikes in what they were told was a simple team-building exercise. With the OK from Youth Foundation leaders Mike and Katie Santambrogio, the kids burst into the room, surprising the managers and claiming their new rides. The idea for the event [See COBANK, page 19] RIGHT: Adrian Loya is all smiles after his team of CoBank managers handed over a new set of wheels.

Denver Zoo bringing remarkable reptiles to Vail library today Today the Denver Zoo will present “Remarkable Reptiles” at the Town of Vail Public Library during the Summer Reading Program, which occurs from 1:00 - 3:00 today and every Tuesday. It will incorporate the science and exploration about those fascinating creatures: reptiles. Tiffany Barnhart, Director of Communications for the Denver Zoo, says “it is so much fun for the kids to explore the reptilian science of live snakes, lizards, turtles and crocodilians. They can participate in a variety of exciting activities as we venture through the scaly world of reptiles”. “This outreach program from the Denver Zoo is new to the Town of Vail Public Library,” says Annie Sinton from the children’s team at the Vail Public Library. “The Denver Zoo is the authority on all kind of animals, but for us they will focus on reptiles. They are experienced in presenting this information to children in such a way that kids find the creatures even more fascinating.” The theme for the Summer Reading Program is “Splash into Reading”. Stories, games and crafts that are centered on rivers, lakes and oceans will be a common thread each week. The Denver Zoo will present in the second half of the program, following an hour of

McKeown “We’re like a power trio, doing covers of Hendrix and Cream – a lot of that sixties and seventies guitar rock – delivered with authority, like it should be. We definitely rock it out. It’s not overly aggressive, like heavy metal, but it’s fun and high energy.” The show starts at 9:30 p.m.

months, according to a recently released paper, Hart’s E&P Web site reports. “The Economic Cost of a Moratorium on the Offshore Oil and Gas Exploration to the Gulf Region” was written by Dr. Joseph R. Mason, the Louisiana State University-endowed chair of banking and renowned economist, according to the Hart article. Mason is quoted in the article saying he estimates the moratorium will see a loss of 8,000 jobs and $500 million in lost wages in the Gulf Coast in the first six months. “The moratorium will cost the Gulf Coast region jobs, money, and economic development,” he reportedly said. “In fact, the moratorium could be more costly than the oil spill itself.”

Obama criticizes Republicans

President Barack Obama took aim at Republican lawmakers yesterday, accusing them of holding the public hostage to Washington politics by blocking extended unemployment benefits for millions of out of work Americans. “It’s time to do what’s right, not for the next election, but for the middle class,” Obama said in a presidential jawboning statement in the Rose Garden yesterday morning. Lawmakers have battled for weeks over legislation extending unemployment benefits to workers who have been out of a job for long stretches of time. The last such extension expired at the end of May, leaving some 2.5 million people without benefits, with hundreds of thousands more losing benefits each week.

Dems have 60 votes

With a new face and a 60th vote for breaking a Republican filibuster, Senate Democrats are preparing to restore jobless checks for 2.5 million people whose benefits ran out during a congressional standoff over deficit spending. President Barack Obama says, “It’s time to do what’s right.” But first, Obama and his Democratic allies are pressing for maximum political advantage, blaming Republicans for an impasse that halted unemployment checks averaging $309 a week for those whose eligibility had expired. Obama launched a fresh salvo yesterday, demanding that the Senate act on the legislation — after a vote already had been scheduled for today — and blasting Republicans for the holdup.

Clinton troubled by Lockerbie bomber release

The Obama administration has asked the governments of Scotland and Britain to review the decision last summer to release the Libyan convicted in the Lockerbie airliner bombing. In letters to U.S. lawmakers, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said the U.S. was encouraging the


Scottish and British authorities to review the circumstances leading to the release of Abdel Baset al-Megrahi. Four senators wrote Clinton last week, questioning whether oil giant BP played a behind-the-scenes role in the decision. In her response, Clinton wrote that she remained deeply troubled by the Libyan’s release. “That al-Megrahi is living out his remaining days outside of Scottish custody is an affront to the victims’ families, the memories of those killed in the Lockerbie bombing, and to all of those who worked tirelessly to ensure justice was served,” Clinton wrote. British Prime Minister David Cameron called the Scottish decision “completely and utterly wrong,” in remarks to the BBC a day before beginning an official visit to Washington.

White to form National Oceans Council

The White House yesterday announced that it was forming a new National Ocean Council to try to make sense of the dozens of laws and overlapping agencies governing policy on oceans, coasts and the Great Lakes, according to the New York Times. The new body, which will include 24 officials from various federal agencies, will not have the power to propose new laws or regulations, yesterday’s article says. Rather it reportedly will set broad policy goals and try to referee between conflicting commercial and recreational uses of the nation’s aquatic resources. “This does not establish any new regulations,” John P. Holden, the White House science adviser, was quoted saying in the article. “The new policy is about coordinating under existing law this welter of executive orders and statutes – 100 of them altogether – and the authority of many different agencies. The intent is to impose some coordination and coherence to this array of activities.” The establishment of the group is the outcome of a year of study ordered by President Obama when he created an ocean policy task force, the Times’ John M. Broder wrote yesterday. The group published its recommendations yesterday, Broder reports.

However, what the donor looks like reportedly is one aspect expecting mothers won’t be able to see. A local sperm bank is looking for a way around that issue by using some familiar faces, according to yesterday’s article. The California Cryobank is using celebrities to categorize what the donor looks like, says NBC. But don’t expect to walk in and ask for a “George Clooney” or “Brad Pitt” because the bank reportedly won’t

July may be New York’s hottest ever

If it feels hotter than it’s ever been in New York, that’s because it is, according to the Bloomberg news agency. New York’s Central Park is heading toward its warmest July on record after two heat waves this month, the National Weather Service reported, yesterday’s article said. Extreme heat reportedly pushes aging power systems to their limits, increasing the odds of breakdown, according to grid monitors. “July may not be the top, but it is going to be in the top five, and this is over 130 years worth of observation, so it is outstanding heat,” Jim Rouiller, a senior energy meteorologist at Planalytics Inc. in Berwyn, Pennsylvania, was quoted saying in the article. The average monthly temperature in Central Park has been 81.6 degrees Fahrenheit so far, warmer than the record set in July 1999 of 81.4, Matt Scalora, a weather service meteorologist in Upton, New York, was quoted saying in Bloomberg’s report.

Cap has new leak; Feds say not serious so far

BP’s broken well was leaking oil and gas again yesterday for the first time since the company capped it last week, but the Obama administration’s spill chief said it was no cause for alarm. The stopper was left in place for now. Ever since the cap was used to bottle up the oil last week, engineers have been watching underwater cameras and monitoring pressure and seismic readings to see whether the well would hold or spring a new leak, perhaps one that could rupture the seafloor and make the disaster even worse. Small amounts of oil and gas started coming from the cap late Sunday, but “we do not believe it is consequential at this time,” retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen said. Also, seepage from the seafloor was detected over the weekend less than two miles away, but Allen said it probably has nothing to do with the well. Oil and gas are known to ooze naturally from fissures in the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico.

The fetching, Spanish-y looking 4 bedroom, 3 bath home where Marilyn Monroe lived, was listed this month for $3,595,000, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. When she bought the home herself in 1962, she paid a reported $90,000, yesterday’s Web article said. It’s not the first time this historic (haunted?) home has hit the market; it’s changed hands several times since the icon herself died in it, the MONROE [See THE UPDATE, page 12]

Chronicle says. Less like a ‘50s night club and more like a typical Southern California home now, the staging at least seems to hearken back to the home’s original feel, since Marilyn is said to have traveled to Mexico, purchasing furnishings and rugs for this place when she owned it, according to the Chronicle. The bulk of the property is in the lot itself (over 23,000 square feet, compared to the 2,624 square feet of the house), including a very Hollywood-esque swimming pool alongside which one can easily picture Marilyn, spilling out of a white one piece, writes Anna Marie Hibble for the Chronicle.

position Popular Party, making a ban likely unless the country’s highest court rules it unconstitutional. Justice Minister Francisco Caamano said last month that garments like the burka are “hardly compatible with human dignity,” yesterday’s Web article said. Head-covering veils would not be included in a ban as they form a part of traditional Spanish dress, with women often covering their heads with a garment called a mantilla, especially during church services in the south of the country, says Newser. A spokesman for Spain’s Islamic Commission calls the burka “extravagant,” but criticized government efforts to ban the outfit because he said women should have choice in how they dress, according to the report. Other European nations that have debated regulating body-covering burkas or face-covering niqabs reportedly include Belgium, the Netherlands, and France.

Queen of Outer Space has new hip

Veteran actress Zsa Zsa Gabor has undergone successful surgery to replace the hip she broke when she fell out of bed at her home on Saturday, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The Hungarian-born movie veteran and star of “Queen of Outer Space” reportedly suffered several broken bones and was taken to UCLA hospital by ambulance following the accident. Her husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, tells the Associated Press the actress was in surgery for threeand-a-half hours yesterday morning, and her surgeon has confirmed there were no complications, says the Chronicle. The 93-year-old star has been confined to her bed since a 2002 car accident left her partially paralyzed, yesterday’s Web article reported.

Al Qaeda’s No. 2 mocks President

Al Qaeda’s No. 2 leader mocked President Barack Obama for voicing confidence over victory in Afghanistan, in an Internet message posted yesterday, according to the Reuters news agency. Ayman al-Zawahri also reportedly said Arab government leaders allied to the West were more harmful to the Palestinians than Israel. “Poor Obama comes to Kabul and he promises that Taliban shall not return to power ... You poor man, can you promise that your hordes will return safely to America?” a speaker who sounded like Zawahri was quoted in the article saying during an audio recording posted on Islamist websites often used by al Qaeda. Obama made his first trip to Afghanistan as president in March, delivering a rousing speech to U.S. troops and telling them he was confident they would have success in their mission, Reuters reports. “These Arab Zionists with whom we live and exchange smiles ... are more dangerous than the Jewish Zionists,” Zawahri was quoted saying in the article, referring to Arab leaders allied to the West. Zawahri, an Egyptian, singled out Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak for his blockade of Gaza’s border with Egypt, helping Israel’s blockade of the Palestinian territory, according to Reuters.

Syria bans full Islamic veils

Syria has forbidden the country’s students and teachers from wearing the niqab — the full Islamic veil that reveals only a woman’s eyes — taking aim at a garment many see as political. The ban shows a rare point of agreement between Syria’s secular, authoritarian government and the democracies of Europe: Both view the niqab as a potentially destabilizing threat. “We have given directives to all universities to ban niqab-wearing women from registering,” a government official in Damascus told The Associated Press yesterday. The order affects both public and private universities and aims to protect Syria’s secular identity, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly about the issue. Hundreds of primary school teachers who were wearing the niqab at government-run schools were transferred last month to administrative jobs, he added.

Cheney gets new heart device

Former Vice President Dick Cheney is recuperating from surgery to implant the kind of mechanical pump now being given to a small but growing number of people with heart failure so severe that they would most likely die within a few months without it, according to the New York Times. The pumps are partial artificial hearts known as ventricular assist devices, and they come in various models, the Times’ article says. Mr. Cheney’s kind reportedly is about the size of a D battery and leaves most recipients without a pulse because it pushes blood continuously instead of mimicking the heart’s own pulsatile beat. The pumps are not cures and do not replace the heart, the Times notes. They pose significant risks and are implanted as a last resort either for permanent use or as a bridge to transplant until a donor heart can be found,

Spain thinking about burka ban

Spanish lawmakers will debate barring burkas in public, joining other European countries considering similar moves on the grounds that the body-covering garments are degrading to women, according to Newser. Top officials of the ruling Socialist Party reportedly have indicated they will support the proposal by the op-

Alaska tea party rep: expulsion ‘preposterous’

A Tea Party Express coordinator said Monday the group’s expulsion from a national coalition over a member’s blog posting about the NAACP was “arrogant and preposterous.” Tea Party Express was expelled from the National Tea Party Federation, a coalition of grass-roots political groups, for refusing to publicly rebuke and oust spokesman Mark Williams. Williams had posted a blog that satirized the NAACP and referred to its president Benjamin Jealous as “Tom’s nephew and NAACP head colored person.” The NAACP approved a resolution last week that calls on activists and others to “repudiate the racist element and activities” within the tea party movement. Tea Party Express coordinator Joe Wierzbicki claimed the federation had “enabled and empowered the NAACP’s racist attacks on the tea party movement, and they should be ashamed of themselves.” “Circular firing squads of groups within the tea party movement attacking one another accomplish nothing, and on this issue the Tea Party Federation is wrong,” he said in a statement. Christina Botteri, a founding member of the federation, said it was “interested in moving the whole Mark Williams thing behind us,” to focus on fiscal responsibility, limited government and free markets.

Today’s Kabul meeting should lay ground for 2014 Afghan deadline

The strategy sits for now on a table in a locked-down Afghan capital: Hand over security in all 34 provinces to the government by the end of 2014 — more than three years after President Barack Obama’s date for the start of an American troop drawdown. By later today, it will be adopted at a one-day international conference, giving war-weary Americans and Europeans a date for when their involvement in Afghanistan may begin to come to an end. It will also give President Hamid Karzai a chance to show whether his struggling government is making progress toward running the country. Afghan officials want the U.S. and other international donors to give them a greater say in spending the billions of dollars in aid and reconstruction funds that have flowed into the country since the war began in 2001 — often with only limited results and amid allegations of corruption and mismanagement that have bolstered the Taliban in the eyes of many ordinary Afghans. Talk of lofty development goals will take place against the backdrop of rising casualties, especially in the Taliban strongholds of the south and east. Mindful that public patience is running out, the delegates will endorse the goal of gradually turning over security to Afghan forces by the time Karzai leaves office at the end of 2014. —Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

Wade compares a few Miami losses to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;World Trade Center coming down again,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; apologies Dwyane Wade issued an apology yesterday after he used the World Trade Center collapse as a parallel to basketball and the Miami Heat season. The All-Star guard made the remark Sunday before the annual charity basketball game he co-hosts with Alonzo Mourning. Standing at his locker before a group of reporters, Wade said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be times when we might lose one, two games in a row, maybe two games, three games in a row, you never know. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to seem like the world is crashed down. You all are going to make it seem like the World Trade has just went down again. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to be nothing but a couple basketball games lost and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to get back on track.â&#x20AC;?

On Monday, before leaving on a flight to Los Angeles for some television appearances, Wade issued an apology through the Heat. In the statement, Wade said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;In an interview yesterday, I attempted to explain how some people may view the Miami Heat losing a few basketball games in a row during the upcoming season. It appears that my reference to the World Trade Center has been either inaccurately reported or taken completely out of context. I was simply trying to say that losing a few basketball games should not be compared to a real catastrophe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While it was certainly not my intention, I sincerely apologize to anyone who found my reference to the World Trade Center to be insensitive or offensive.â&#x20AC;?

New cycling rivalry brewing at Tour Andy Schleck furious with Alberto Contador As ridiculous as it sounds to a person who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t follow cycling, there is etiquette that if a leading rider suffers a mechanical problem the other leaders should wait for him until the problem is fixed. Alberto Contador broke that etiquette yesterday. Andy Schleck lost the overall lead in the Tour de France to defending champion Contador on Monday after suffering a mechanical problem at a disastrous moment in a 15th stage won by Thomas Voeckler. Afterward, a furious Schleck accused Contador of taking the yellow jersey unfairly because he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait while Schleck stopped to fix the chain on his bike. Contador insisted he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know Schleck had had a problem. Schleck had accelerated less than 2.5 miles from the top of the big climb of the day, the Port de Bales, but almost immediately lost his chain, forcing him to stop on the side of the road. Contador shot past, gaining valuable time while Schleck got his chain back on. The Luxembourg rider then tried to ride his way back through the field to catch up with Contador and the other leaders in the overall competition, but was unable to make up the time. He finished 39 seconds behind Contador, who holds the overall lead by 8 seconds. Schleck said that according to cycling etiquette the riders should have waited for him, which was what happened when he crashed during an early stage.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today, you know, everybody is in panic, they see already the Eiffel Tower. I would not have taken advantage of the situation,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not up to me â&#x20AC;Ś but for sure these guys donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the fair-play prize today.â&#x20AC;? He added: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to take the jersey like that.â&#x20AC;? Contador said he was not aware of Schleckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problem until he had gone far past him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I planned to attack anyway, and when I knew what had happened to him I was already ahead and racing,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course I know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a delicate situation and could lead to debate, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe that to lose or win 30 seconds at this point will make you win or lose the Tour de France.â&#x20AC;? It was the second stage victory for Voeckler after another solo win in Perpignan last year. He also held the yellow jersey for nine days in 2004. He finished Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 116.5-mile 15th stage from Pamiers to Bagneres-de-Luchon in 4 hours, 44 minutes, 51 seconds, ahead of Alessandro Ballan of Italy and Aitor Perez of Spain. Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 16th stage, the third in the Pyrenees, is one of the toughest of all, taking the riders 124 mile from Bagneres-de-Luchon to Pau. The course goes over the major climbs of the Col de Peyresourde, Col dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Aspin and Col dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Aubisque, but the highlight will be the first of two crossings of the legendary Col du Tourmalet.

Mayweather camp denies negotiating Pacquiao fight Promoters dispute who is telling the truth ESPN reported Monday that one of Floyd Mayweather Jr.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s closest advisers, Leonard Ellerbe, denied that negotiations for a much anticipated fight between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao had ever taken place. That is contrary to what Pacquiaoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s promoter, Bob Arum, has been saying for the past three weeks and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sticking by his story. Arum said on June 30 that he had concluded talks and was waiting for a decision from the Mayweather camp on whether he wanted to fight this year. Then, Arum gave Mayweather until 3 a.m. ET Saturday to accept the terms of an agreement or he would move on and look to make a deal for Pacquiao to fight either Antonio Margarito or have a rematch with Miguel Cotto on Nov. 13. There was even a clock on a website tied to Arym counting down the days un-

til the deadline the deadline. Arum set a teleconference with boxing reporters at the deadlineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expiration. On the teleconference, Arum said he had worked out the agreement with Al Haymon, Mayweatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top adviser, using Ross Greenburg, the president of HBO Sports, as a go-between without ever speaking directly to Haymon. Now, Ellerbe denies any of that ever happened. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here are the facts,â&#x20AC;? Ellerbe said in Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Al Haymon, [Golden Boy Promotions CEO] Richard Schaefer and myself speak to each other on a regular basis, and the truth is no negotiations have ever taken place, nor was there ever a deal agreed upon by Team Mayweather or Floyd Mayweather to fight Manny Pacquiao on Nov. 13. Either Ross Greenburg or Bob Arum is not telling the truth, but history tells us

who is lying.â&#x20AC;? Ellerbe took a shot at Arum because he once uttered a famous quote, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yesterday I was lying, today I am telling the truth.â&#x20AC;? When asked for his response to Ellerbeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surprising statement, Greenburg said in an e-mail to, â&#x20AC;&#x153;As always we have no comment.â&#x20AC;?

Serena may not play US Open

In this July 1, 2010 photo, Serena Williams makes a backhand return shot to Petra Kvitova at Wimbledon. The WTA Tour says Williams is questionable for the U.S. Open because of her recent foot injury. AP photo.

Serena Williams is in doubt for the U.S. Open because of her recent foot injury, according to the WTA Tour. Williams cut her right foot on broken glass at a restaurant shortly after winning Wimbledon. The tour said last week she needed surgery and would miss three tournaments leading up to the Open. On Monday, tour spokesman Andrew Walker said Williams is questionable for the final Grand Slam of the year. Williams’ return to the Open has been widely anticipated because of her tumultuous semifinal loss there last year, when she threw a tirade at a line judge at the end of a match against Kim Clijsters and was fined a record $82,500. Because of the injury, Williams is missing the entire World Team Tennis season with the Washington Kastles. Her team said she cut the bottom of her foot and needed stitches. “Hey guys I’m doing better,” Williams tweeted Monday. “Thanks for all the love.” On Sunday night she tweeted: “can’t wait to get out of bed & back

on the courts & do what i do best!” Ranked No. 1, Williams won her fourth Wimbledon crown and 13th major title July 3. The injury occurred shortly after in Europe and at first was not believed to be serious. After hurting her foot, Williams played in an exhibition in Brussels on July 8 against Clijsters before a world-record tennis crowd of 35,681. Williams attended a WTT match the next night in Glen Falls, New York and did not play but briefly discussed her injury with reporters. When asked how she was able to play against Clijsters, Williams said, “Those Belgian doctors and waffles.” Williams subsequently withdrew from upcoming tournaments in Istanbul, Cincinnati and Montreal. The last of those, at Montreal, begins Aug. 16, and the U.S. Open starts Aug. 30. After winning the Australian Open at the end of January, Williams was sidelined through April because of an injured left knee.

Oosthuizen still savoring winning feeling Louis Oosthuizen celebrated with the claret jug next to his side until the morning hours at the Jigger Inn across from the 17th fairway at St. Andrews after his dream became a reality when he dominated The Open Championship, winning by seven shots. “I put it next to my bed last night, and I woke up this morning and I looked at it, and I immediately grabbed the phone and text Chubby Chandler, my agent, saying, ‘I’ve got this funny old jug next to my bed.’ “Man, oh, man,” he said. “That was special waking up next to it.” Equally special was his victory at the home of golf, a performance so pure that he never trailed over the final 48 holes and hit into only one bunker on the Old Course, on the 14th hole Sunday when the championship had already been decided. Oosthuizen became the fifth player in the last six Grand Slam events to win his first major, and the question sure to follow is whether he is capable of winning more or if he happened to play his best golf during an important week. The margin of victory is what makes this stand out. Until his conservative play on the 17th to make bogey, Oosthuizen was poised to tie the Open record over 72 holes with an eight-shot victory, last achieved by Tiger Woods a decade ago. Seven shots is no less impressive. In the 150 years of major championships, only 14 players have won by seven shots or more (Woods has done three times, Jack Nicklaus twice). Of those players, only two—Fred Herd in the 1898 U.S. Open and Willie Smith in the 1899 U.S. Open—never won another major. “I think based on the margin of victory, his demeanor on the golf course, the quality of his game and steady

progress that he’s been making in the world rankings and in tour events, I think very much mark him as a player on the rise,” Royal & Ancient chief executive Peter Dawson said Monday. “Every great Open champion has to win for the first time. And I for one would not be surprised to see him win again.” That would be the plan for the 27-year-old South African. He figures the seven years he spent on the European Tour toughened him up, and winning in Spain for his first European Tour title did nothing but boost his confidence. “I want a few more of these,” he said, his eyes rarely wandering from the jug. “I think winning one just wants you to get to the second one, and winning a second one and then get to the third. Yeah, I’m going to work a bit harder probably from now on and just try and get up there with as many majors as I can.” While not well-known on a global stage, this victory was not as surprising Ben Curtis winning in 2003 in his first major at No. 396 in the world, or Paul Lawrie winning at Carnoustie in 1999. Oosthuizen took that respect to a new level when it comes to golf’s oldest trophy. British Open champions keep the claret jug for a year, and usually return with stories of what all was poured out of it. Stewart Cink started with Guinness, and the rest of the liquid ranged from soda to wine to barbecue sauce. For now, the jug is as clean as when Cink returned it. “There was nothing in this,” Oosthuizen said. “To me, it’s too special. I just looked at it and held it in my arms all night.”

Through an interview process with Youth Foundation families, 14 kids were selected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of these kids donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have bikes,â&#x20AC;? Katie Santambrogio said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They all participate in Youth Foundation activities and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really a great privilege to have this opportunity for them.â&#x20AC;? Bob Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Toole of CoBank helped orga-

nize the event and says that it is important to teach their employees community relations, and the bike giveaway program was the perfect idea. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A big focus for us over the last few years has been community involvement and support,â&#x20AC;? said Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Toole, who was in on the giveaway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we love about the bikes is we get to help kids and reach out into the community to those that need it.â&#x20AC;? The managers got yet another surprise when Grischow announced that they would have 15 minutes to present the bikes to their new customers. The challenge was to alter their customer conversations radically in order to relate to

their adolescent patrons. Under softened managerial instruction, the kids mounted their shiny red bikes and rode about the room with earto-ear smiles. Emily Quezada, 7, said she canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to take her bike to the park in Avon. Adrian Loya, 5, said thanks to the team that assembled his wheels and couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to show his friends. Javier Varela, 6, was speechless. To keep things safe, the program also gave the kids a new helmet and bike lock to along with the bicycles that were made by Next. Tom Spaulding, the keynote speaker for the event, says the exercise demon-

[From page 19]

strates leadership, relationships and customer service all incorporated into an activity based around giving back to the community. One group in attendance was particularly thankful for the program: the parents. Varelaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father said the event put a smile on everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face and he appreciates programs like the Youth Foundation. At the end of the day, managers learned about community outreach, one-time walkers became bikers, and everyone left with a smile on their face.


the fact that we will soon begin preparations to host the world once again,â&#x20AC;? said Harry Frampton, Chairman of the Vail Valley Foundation board of directors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We invite everyone who would like to toast to our success to come to the Ford Amphitheater on Tuesday to officially take the first step on the road to 2015.â&#x20AC;? In addition to the free concert, featuring the funk, progressive R&B and pure soul of the Laura Reed Trio, the evening will also include free 2015 bumper stickers, 2015 food and beverage specials, face painting and

tattoos for the kids and a chance to win a brand new pair of Atomic skis. Vail/Beaver Creek won the right to host the 2015 World Championships on the first ballot at the FIS Congress in Antalya, Turkey, defeating Cortina, Italy and St. Moritz, Switzerland in the process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a long and arduous road,â&#x20AC;? concluded Frampton, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but to hear (FIS President) Gian-Franco Kasper say the words â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Vail/Beaver Creekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; made it all worth it. We waged the campaign for everyone in our com-


[From page 1]

munity and now, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to celebrate with those same people.â&#x20AC;? The gates of the Ford Amphitheater will open at 5:30 p.m. in anticipation of the free concert, which is scheduled to get underway at 6:30 p.m. The Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater and Bud Light Hot Summer Nights free concert series are projects of the Vail Valley Foundation. For more information, check out
