Now available at a Starbucks near you Local Starbucks managers find solution to monopolistic force-out of Vail Mountaineer The Vail Mountaineer on Friday was made available in local Starbucks coffee shops throughout the Valley. After some discussion, a lot of deep thought and some good old-fashioned compromise, the local managers in Avon and Edwards will now make our paper available inside their establishments. We don’t think anyone anticipated the outpouring of support we received in our quest, nor did we anticipate the coffee, gloves and good cheer from the Starbucks staffers while we passed out our paper during this week’s snowstorms. In the end, you now have equal access to local news and we have equal access to you. As for our little struggle with the monopoly from Reno which publishes the Vail Daily, it continues to be educational and thought provoking. The controversy was made public Wednesday with our publication of a story entitled “Corporate greed,” in which we reported that we received a letter from Starbucks telling us to remove our papers from their Vail Village, Avon and Edwards locations. We were told the Daily put them up to it. Following that article one of our readers commented that he thought we were beginning to sound “whiny” because we continue to complain about the tactics used by our competitor. We disagree.

THE UPDATE

--148.38

Caution reasserted itself on Wall Street Friday, sending stocks sharply lower but not enough to prevent the market from notching its third straight weekly advance. Most analysts agreed that the pullback was a natural response to the market’s powerful climb this month. Financial and technology stocks led the retreat, and energy shares fell along with the price of oil. The Dow fell 148.38, or 1.9 percent, to 7,776.18. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell [See THE UPDATE, pages 8-9]

We’re not whining, we’re reporting what we’ve been told about their monopolistic actions against the Mountaineer. They are the biggest paper in town. Local business people have told us that they are selectively undercutting our pricing while trying to continue to gouge their loyal customers, requiring local charities and businesses sign exclusive agreements to only advertise in their newspaper for the Vail Daily’s benefit. And in some cases we’ve even heard of non-disclosure agreements so the people who continue pay higher rates don’t get upset. We can’t expect them to report what these local business people are saying. That would be silly. Who would behave in such an unethical manner and report it in their own paper? That leaves us to report the news. We do so all time. When the news is bad, it’s not whining, it’s news. As for continuously rehashing these escapades, it’s part of our efforts to educate new readers. We’re growing every day. That means we have new readers every day. How are they going to know what the gang from Reno is up to if we don’t write about it? In the future, we’ll make up some sort of code for our regular readers so you can skip the rehash, unless you enjoy it as much as we do.

Tom Johnson runs between the red tape lines. Johnson rides herd on Eagle County’s facilities management department. Through a series of unfortunate events that would rival Lemony Snicket’s, it has fallen to him to find some money to rebuild Red Cliff’s ailing sewer plant. An ailing sewer plant is like having the flu and sitting on edge of the bathtub, staring at the toilet and wondering which minor disaster is going to erupt next. So he was really, really happy when the Environmental Protection Agency came up with a STAG grant (State and Tribal grant) for $880,000 to handle at least part of Red Cliff’s sewer plant problems. To rip everything up and replace it would run about $2 million. To fix the stuff they absolutely know is broken and leaking like an Obama-loving liberal would run about $1 million. Johnson was not so happy when he learned that those $880,000 STAG grant dollars require a 55 percent local match. That’s somewhere in the neighborhood of $484,000. We did the math. The good news is that the money can come from government agencies other than the EPA. The Department of Local Affairs and the U.S. Department of Agriculture are two possible sources, Johnson said. The bad news is that the match cannot come from Obamaland stimulus money. That’s about the only money the feds are flinging around like water – which is ironic because water is what Red Cliff needs help with. On the other hand, you can’t have people using bor-

rowed money as collateral to borrow more money. We couldn’t have U.S. taxpayer dollars bailing out knot heads doing silly stuff like that, could we? Anyway, Red Cliff’s rainbow was also tarnished a little when folks recalled that they’d been awarded one of these STAG grants before, but the money wasn’t available. That’s a lot like your high school sweetheart pledging her undying love and affection, then joining a convent. “We’re still moving forward and are hoping that between the USDA and DOLA we can get one phase of the project done,� said Johnson. The Red Cliff sewer plant is “out of compliance regularly,� said Johnson. That means the biosolids aren’t 100 percent broken down, which is another way of saying algae and other stuff is flowing into the Eagle River from Red Cliff’s busted sewer plant. If you’re Red Cliff and your drinking water source is above the town, drawing water from a creek that’s more pure than the hearts of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, it’s not a problem. However, if you’re among those in Eagle County who get their drinking water from the Eagle River, you’re likely to take a different view of the situation’s urgency. But there are so many rapids that high in the Eagle River that those biosolids are pounded into nothing, and in this case nothing is perfectly safe. “But that’s not what we want,� said Johnson. “We want a good system.� The funding will have to come from multiple agencies, said Johnson. “If we get this grant and get this fixed, then we can get the rest of it fixed,� he said. “It’s based on full funding. They hope to start the project this summer, said Johnson.

Can an hour make a difference? Can an hour make a difference? Vail and an estimated 3,000 cities around the world will turn out some lights for an hour today to draw attention to global warming issues. Vail wants residents and visitors to “take a break from electric power” from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m., said Kristen Bertuglia, the town’s environmental coordinator. It will turn off its Christmas lights on trees around town too, she said. But Matt Scherr, executive director of the Eagle Valley Alliance, a “green” nonprofit group in Eagle County, questions if the event will really change anything. “An hour in the dark is not going to be the change we need, so don’t be a Christmas and Easter ‘earth power’ environmentalist,” Scherr warns. “What is everyone doing in their everyday lives that makes an actual difference?” Instead, folks could work on environmental issues in the county, from getting a “pay as you throw” trash program passed that would encourage recycling to “getting mass transit really solved,” Scherr said. “It’s getting great press right now, but if I shut off my lights, it’s a silly little gesture if (I) don’t do anything else,” Scherr said.

Or, if he is coming, it’d be a surprise to Sam Chafos, the Publicity Manager for the Vail Film Festival. “Mr. Law will appear in one of the documentaries being screened this year, The Day After Peace,” says Chafos. “But he will not be attending the Festival.”  However, American Pie funnyman Jason Biggs is scheduled to appear along with several other VIPs. The list includes: Kevin Smith, Michelle Monaghan, Jason Biggs, Kaitlin Olson, Tricia O’Kelley, Ashley Jensen, Jenny Mollen and Giancarlo Esposito. The Vail Film Festival will take place April 2 - 5 in Vail. Writer/director/actor Kevin Smith will receive the Renegade Award and actor Michelle Monaghan will receive the Excellence in Acting Award.

To help, call Eagle Valley Community Church at 328-0919. they’re trying to keep others from improving their lives. These Dalit kids are the first in their families to receive an English language education. English is the language of power in India, and the path to their high school graduation made a couple serious attempts to kill them. Terri used to live here, one of the most affluent places on Earth. Now she lives there, in the slums of India, teaching the world’s poorest people about life and health and God. She’s unapologetically Christian, and hopes to make working with these Dalits her life’s work. “This was such a monumental, historical moment,� said Rider, taking a moment to enjoy the ceremony in one of the Dalit Education Centers she helped establish. On this day, 17 Dalit kids were presented with their graduation certificates. Without that education their lives would have to improve to be bleak. They know what that looks like. They would be child laborers, stone breakers, brick makers, making concrete by hand, digging ditches, sweepers and other brutally physical, low paying jobs that are part of a miserable life and an early death. For a Dalit to get an education, everyone sacrifices. “Fortunately, their parents understood the importance of a quality English medium education,� said Rider. “These graduates have overcome so many obstacles to be standing on the stage, proudly wearing their caps and gowns.� First, they had to live long enough, through the childhood diseases that kill so many. Starvation is always nipping at them. Then there’s the stigma that a Dalit cannot be educated. India’s society wants to stay oppressed and illiterate; it makes them easier to control. Girls are a commodity, often abandoned or sold as a child bride. These girls are educated in English; their future was to work as a servant. Now it isn’t. Their families did not pull them from school when financial crises hit. They’re Dalits. They’re always in a financial crisis. “All of these students are the first family member ever since the beginning of their family line to receive a complete education,� said Rider. “Knowing just a little of what they have overcome and accomplished to reach the goal of graduation.� All high school graduates hear the same speech – this is the first step in a lifetime of learning and adventure. That’s true in most areas of America. It used to be a lie in this part of India. It’s not any longer. These Dalit graduates have goals of attending colleges and universities. This is a step toward breaking free from the chains of entrapment, which have been part of their culture for thousands of years. “What a glorious occasion,� said Rider. “These stu-

dents will forever change the future of their families for all generations from here forward.â€? Riding in to help Rider is dedicating her life to helping these people. Without help, many will die ‌ soon. With help, some will die anyway. In this corner of the world, the circle of life is small and closes quickly. Rider will help today, as she does every day. Some she can help save; some she cannot. But she will do what she can, with what she has, where she’s at, for Jesus’ sake today. She will repeat that last sentence like a mantra. She loves Jesus and Jesus loves her back. She loves these Dalits, these untouchables, and they love her back. Love will make a person do some strange and wonderful things. Rider helps run medical teams who arrive from the United States and other parts of the developed world. They come for a week or two; they work what looks like miracles; they leave. She stays, doing everything she can while preparing for the next team. Some of what she teaches is basic: Wash your hands; brush your teeth. In the dialect of that area, she says, the name “Dalitâ€? translates to, “It would be better to never of been born.â€? “There is no escape. There is no comfort. All they know is survival,â€? says Rider. Now, thanks to her and others like her, some of them are being educated in English. They have the high school diploma to prove it.

Learn the art of the startup . . . CMC cranks up another entrepreneur seminar By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Brian Chapman had this good idea for a business, the kind that tickle and nag and won’t leave you alone. Chapman has been a self-employed technology consultant for 10 years. That’s not the same as being an entrepreneur, but he didn’t know that until he signed up for the Entrepreneur Fitness Center at Colorado Mountain College. CMC’s Kim Blackford got him with Patrick Baldasare, the entrepreneur impresario who’s teaching an 11-week crash course on launching a successful business. Chapman and everyone else in the class is learning pretty much everything they need to know, begin[See ENTREPRENEUR, page 10]

You’d call Patrick Baldasare a serial entrepreneur. He has years in the entrepreneurial trenches and has the battle scars to prove it. “I’ve been an entrepreneur all my life,” said Baldasare. “I’ve always enjoyed mentoring and helping entrepreneurs make their ideas a reality.” Baldasare has been through almost every function and malfunction in the business world. “We’ve been through the wars with some of these,” said Baldasare. Most of the time, everything turned out just fine. Baldasare was an Inc/Ernst &Young Entrepreneur of the Year finalist for two consecutive years. He became CEO of a division of Burlington Industries at the age of 27. At the time, Burlington Industries was a Fortune 50 Company. He founded a market research firm, the Response Center, in 1987 and bootstrapped the entire venture. It grew the firm to approximately 700 employees. Not long afterward he founded @RISK, Inc., which specialized in building systems to predict which customers would defect three months before they did so. @RISK also provided services to assist our clients in their rescue efforts.

CINEMA

‘Monsters vs. Aliens’ has high-energy humor Classic creatures from the 1950s get a high-tech makeover, with a healthy amount of attitude, in the 3-D animated “Monsters vs. Aliens.� The Blob, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Fly — they’re are all here, led by The 50-Foot Woman, who’s now 49 feet, 11 inches as voiced by the diminutive Reese Witherspoon. (Animation, by the way, is a great fit for her, and for both the crispness and sweetness in her voice.) Far from being menacing, they’re optimistic misfits who just want to be loved and understood. Rather than destroying each other, they’re loyal friends who’ve been trapped together as government test subjects, only to be unleashed on the world when an alien invasion requires their unique powers. It’s an enormously clever concept — no pun intended — with a choice voice cast. Who else but Seth Rogen could play a lovable blue blob named B.O.B., who always has a smile on his gelatinous face? Will Arnett essentially revives his hilariously cocky-but-clueless “Arrested Development� character, Gob Bluth II, as the half-fish, half-ape Missing Link, and Hugh Laurie lends his rich voice to the British mad scientist Dr. Cockroach. Just seeing the words “And Stephen Colbert as The President� during the opening titles is good for a laugh, especially given the comic’s faux run for The White House from his home state of South Carolina. And the laughs keep coming steadily from there. Directors Rob Letterman (“Shark Tale�) and Conrad Vernon (“Shrek 2�), working from a script from about a half-dozen people, maintains a high energy throughout, although the explosive climax feels bombastic and re-

petitive. Far more effective is the way this motley crew comes together. Witherspoon’s Susan is a simple woman from Modesto, California, who’s about to marry pompous TV weatherman Derek (Paul Rudd). On their wedding day, as Susan dreams of honeymooning in Paris and Derek obsesses over an anchor audition in Fresno, a meteor hits Earth, exposing Susan to galactic gloop that turns her into a giant with a shock of white hair. (And as she grows, her wedding gown rips and clings to her in sexy ways — but there’s nothing too racy here on any level. “Monsters vs. Aliens� is decidedly PG, with any vestiges of antagonism softened for the sake of family-friendly comedy. It could have used a bit more edge.) The military, led by Gen. W.R. Monger (Kiefer Sutherland), scoops her up and sticks her in a holding cell along with B.O.B., Link, Dr. Cockroach and a goofy, 350-foot (106-meter) bug named Insectosaurus. (Their back stories, rendered in run-down film clips, are a nice nostalgic touch.) They also rename her Ginormica, which gives her a self-esteem boost when she needs it most. An alien attack, led by the megalomaniacal Galaxhar (Rainn Wilson), forces the monsters into the streets of San Francisco. A showdown between Susan and Galaxhar’s prime weapon, a clunky retro robot, is beautifully detailed as it causes the windows on downtown office buildings to rumble and shatter. Greater thrills come when the monsters fight the robot on the Golden Gate Bridge in an old-school, B-movie battle. While bright and colorful, the three-dimensional ef[See MONSTERS V ALIENS, page 22]

She’s 50, tattooed and wrinkle-free

Barbie turns 50 this month, and she’s getting tattooed to celebrate. The developments are causing a stir, reports the L.A. Times. “In Southern California ... Mattel Inc. has released Totally Stylin’ Tattoos Barbie. The doll comes with a set of more than 40 tiny tattoo stickers that can be placed on her body. Also included is a faux tattoo gun with wash-off tats that kids can use to ink themselves,” according to the report. “A spokeswoman for the El Segundo toy maker said it was a great way for youngsters to be creative with their pint-sized gal pal. But some parents are horrified by this body-art Barbie, labeling her the “tramp stamp” queen of playtime. On her parenting blog, Telling It Like It Is, Texas mother Lin Burress sarcastically predicted that “Totally Pierced Barbie” would be the next to roll off the assembly line. Readers commenting on the blog chimed in with their own fictional ‘Divorce Barbie,’ who would take possession of Ken’s accessories.”

And she could get banned in West Virginia

A West Virginia lawmaker has fielded plenty of ridicule, insults and even threats since proposing a state ban on Barbie and similar dolls. But Delegate Jeff Eldridge got a standing ovation from House colleagues Thursday after he explained his reasons for the bill. “This bill has touched a nerve all across the world,” Eldridge said at one point in his 20-minute speech. “If I’ve helped just 10 kids out with this, to me it was worth it.” The Lincoln County Democrat also shared some of the e-mails and phones call that have bombarded his office. He counted more than 3,000 messages within 48 hours of the bill’s introduction. Eldridge estimated that at least 80 percent of the responses he deemed foul, hateful or threatening came from men. “When I did this, I knew I was going to take some heat,” said the 42-year-old, now in his third term. The legislation would outlaw sales of the iconic Mattel toy “and other similar dolls that promote or influence girls to place an undue importance on physical beauty to the detriment of their intellectual and emotional development.”

Cloudy market forces layoffs at GE Solar

GE Solar has laid off employees at a Newark, Delaware, plant, Gunther Portfolio reports, saying the cause is that there are too many silicon modules filling the warehouse there, so they’ve let people from the second and third production shifts go. Gunther says a GE spokesperson confirmed it, a quotes the following statement: “We did have a staff reduction. The market for the solar technology manufactured at the Newark, Delaware facility has seen a sudden and dramatic decline, which required us to align our output with the market demand.” GE denied rumors that the company has plans to shut the plant down altogether.

Prosecutors had alleged that a doctor he used for second opinions was essentially an employee of his and not independent as state law requires. If convicted, Tiller had faced a year in jail for each charge. The medical board considering the complaint against Tiller could revoke, suspend or limit his medical license, or fine him.

Reed says Roberts lied to Congress

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Friday that Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. lied to Congress during his confirmation hearings by pretending to be open-minded about his judicial philosophy, reports the Washington Times. “We got into a little jam with Roberts. Roberts didn’t tell us the truth. At least [Justice Samuel A.] Alito told us who he was,� Mr. Reid, Nevada Democrat, was quoted saying in the report. “We’re stuck with those two young men,� Mr. Reid went on to say, though he said they hope to try to balance out the judiciary overall by “having some moderates in the federal court system as time goes on.� AP photo.

At least he wears a helmet

Scarlett Johansson is begging husband Ryan Reynolds to quit riding motorcycles after he almost trashed his bike in a near crash, and the National Enquirer says it’s led to a “pretty heavy argument.� Reynolds has said he’s planning a summer road trip across Alaska on his new Paul Smart Ducati bike.

Giant shark caught off Palm Beach coast ... not Madoff

A 14 foot hammerhead shark was caught off the Florida coast this week, and it took angler Fritz Van de Grift and two pals an hour and a half to reel in, reoprts the Sun. “Mr. Van der Grift said he never intended to kill the monster shark - he simply wanted to take a few pictures with his catch and release it back into the sea,� according to the report. “But the super-sized sea creature fought hard and died of his battle injuries.�

Kansas floods

Jurors have acquitted one of the nation’s few lateterm abortion providers of violating Kansas law requiring an independent second opinion for the procedure. But moments after the verdict was announced Friday, the state’s medical board made public a complaint against Dr. George Tiller on similar allegations. Tiller was found not guilty of 19 misdemeanor charg-

Suicide attack kills 48 at Pakistani mosque

A suicide bomber blew up a packed mosque near the Afghan border at the climax of a Friday prayer service, killing 48 people and wounding scores more in the worst attack to hit Pakistan this year. Islamic militants were suspected in the blast in the Khyber pass, apparently to avenge recent military operations in the area aimed at protecting the major supply route for NATO and U.S. troops in Afghanistan, authorities said. The route passes in front of the mosque.

40th anniversary Woodstock sacked?

The “Massive� Woodstock may not come in 2009, reports the Rolling Store. “As Woodstock’s 40th anniversary approaches rumors are flying that another birthday concert is in the works. While original producer Michael Lang has been talking about plans for one concert in New York City and another in Berlin, 1969 Woodstock producer Joel Rosenman, Lang’s partner for 40 years, says the show is very far away from being booked and may not even happen this year,� according to the report. “It may not be the year for Woodstock,� Rosenman is quoted saying saying in the report. “We’ve had some very encouraging news about this year in the past few weeks, but we don’t know for sure. We’re not going to let some technical number, some digit, determine when the next Woodstock is. We’re going to let something bigger than that determine it.�

He’d be happy to tell you what that idea is, but everyone in the class signs nondisclosure agreements so they don’t steal each other’s ideas.

The Swayback attacks the Sandbar ‘Best Rock Band in 2008’ comes to rock West Vail tonight By Holly Bass Special to the Mountaineer Eric Halborg, bass and vocals for The Swayback, has had quite a busy day today. This morning Halborg is scheduled to play the band’s song “Just Like the Old Days� in a solo acoustic version on the mourning TV show Murphy. The channel 16 show debuts at 9 a.m. and airs throughout the day. And tonight Halborg and The Swayback will be playing at the Sandbar. The Overcasters will be opening the night up at 9 p.m. “We’re definitely a full rock band. If you see us at the Sandbar you’ll get a taste of what we do,� Halbourg said. And rock is definitely what they do as evidence of their newly acquired title, “Best Rock Band in 2008� as voted by Westword Magazine. Also in the band is William Murphy on guitar, Martijn Bolster on drums, and newest band member Adam Tymn on guitar, keys and vocals. Tymn will not be at tonight’s show. Right now the band is taking some time off and relaxing for the winter. Halborg and Bolster both just had sons and are taking their time off enjoying the delights of fatherhood. Bolster’s son was born right after the bands last show. They weren’t sure if they should still perform but decided to take the risk. Fifteen minutes after the performance Bolster got the call to head to the hospital. “Leave it to a drummer’s kid to have great timing,� Halborg joked. The Swayback is also in the middle of recording their new album which should be out mid to late summer. “We’re working with a British producer, Andy Johns who has done some pretty classic Rock recording,� Halborg said. Johns had worked on Led Zeppelin’s “IV� and the Rolling Stones’ “Exile on Main Street.� And recording is going great, Halborg said. Right now their discography includes their first selftitled album, “The Swayback� and their lastest album, “Long Gone Lads.� They also have a shorter length

Their love for snowboarding gave way to another love; playing and performing rock music. “My favorite part is playing with the guys in the band,� Halborg said. And with repetition Halborg said a “musical conversation� happens between the band that’s an amazing experience. Tonight The Swayback will play all of their original music.

IRS chases race car driver By Dean Blazier Special to the Mountaineer Helio Castroneves is known around the world not only for is skills behind the wheel, but also as a winning celebrity dancer from ABC’s ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ is being ran down by the Internal Revenue Service for allegedly owing more than $2.3 million in taxes. Castroneves’ defense lawyers are expected to begin their case early next week but have not said whether Castroneves will testify. The two-time Indianapolis 500 winner has previously said he paid little attention to his financial affairs and relied on professionals to handle them. The incident all but ensures Castroneves will not be behind the wheel of Penske Racing’s No. 3 car for the IndyCar Series season opener April 5 in St. Petersburg, Florida, but his team could put him behind the wheel as late as April 3rd if the situation gets resolved.

Is it possible that dancer/race car driver Helio Castroneves forgot to pay taxes on his ‘Dancing with the Stars’ victory money? His trial resumes next week. AP photo.

Austrian triathlete admits to doping (AP) Austrian triathlete Lisa Huetthaler, who was suspended last fall for using an endurance boosting hormone, has admitted to doping in a newspaper interview published Friday. In October, Huetthaler was banned for two years by Austria’s national anti-doping agency for testing positive for EPO. She was also under investigation for allegedly attempting to bribe a laboratory employee last spring to guarantee that her “B’’ sample didn’t return with the same result as her initial positive test. Huetthaler, 25, told the daily Kurier that her main supplier was Stefan Matschiner, the former manager of disgraced Austrian cyclist Bern-

hard Kohl, who admitted to using the blood booster CERA at last year’s Tour de France. Huetthaler said she met Matschiner in May 2007 through Andreas Zoubek, a doctor at a Vienna children’s hospital whose name has previously surfaced in other local doping-related news reports. Huetthaler said she paid Matschiner roughly $20,206 for numerous doses of EPO. She also said Matschiner introduced her to testosterone and that she got growth hormones through Zoubek. She said her exboyfriend and trainer, who was not named in the interview, got her into doping. “I was 18, he was almost 40 ... I

was naive,” Huetthaler said. Huetthaler said her main motive for coming clean was so she could feel good about herself again. “I want to be able to walk down the street again with my head held high,” she told Kurier. Austria increased its efforts to eradicate doping after the 2006 Turin Olympics scandal, when Italian police raided the Austrian crosscountry and biathlon team lodgings, seizing a large amount of doping products and equipment. Earlier this week, former Austrian Nordic skiing coach Walter Mayer was arrested on suspicion of selling doping substances three years after triggering the Olympics scandal.

LPGA: Being a blogger no longer a complete waste of time, energy Attention bloggers ‌ The Ladies Professional Golf Association is offering you a rare opportunity to escape that sweet setup you have in your parent’s basement and actually see the light of day. The LPGA has extended its acceptable media credentials for tour events to include emerging forms of media including blogs and other Web sites. But this doesn’t mean any ol’ hack can stagger under the ropes at a tour event and say, “It’s The Green OK ‌ I’m a blogger.â€? The LPGA Blazer has a subjective application process to ensure that only serious wanabee journalists get in. If you don’t post regularly and your hits are mostly from yourself, than you will be denied faster than a loser’s weak pickup attempt on Natalie Gulbis. But, if your blog is one of the small percentages that actually gets traffic, then you will likely be accepted. Front runner to receive the first pass is blogger The Golf Girl. Her golf blog is one of the Web’s most popular and could be a large part of the reason they created this new policy. There are lots of golf girls on the internet; some use unique spelling, and others just too unimaginative to come up with something cleverer, but the original Golf Girl, Patricia Hannigan, has been blogging on thegolfgirl.blogspot.com since 2006. Her blog targets mostly women, and is described by Patricia as, “fun, flirty, and fashionable.â€? So when will the mask and coat of The Green Blazer be at an LPGA event? The answer will enrage some, but the truth is since having a media pass to the LPGA tour involves watching women’s golf, the Blazer’s application might end up in a puff of smoke.

Women’s SG derailed by fog at ski championships Skiers are getting fogged out at the U.S. Alpine Championships in Mount Alyeska, Alaska where all men’s and women’s races were canceled Friday. Women skiers, including Lindsey Vonn who was scheduled to be the first down the mountain, hung around for more than four hours waiting for the fog to lift, but it never cleared enough to race. The

men’s race was cancelled not more than two hours later. Vail native Vonn, who just wrapped up her second World Cup overall title, said it was disappointing not to be able to compete. “It was really tough with all the snow we got the last few days, but everyone worked hard and it’s just a bummer that the fog came in and it just wasn’t safe enough to run.”

As Friday winded down on the mountain just south of Anchorage, they were still undecided whether they would reschedule the women’s super-G for Saturday, or carry on with Saturday’s original schedule. Alyeska Resort mountain services manager Brian Burnett said it would be up to the coaches and the race managers.

Father of Stevens Pass gets chairlift in his name

Clay invites you to visit Timberline Barbers 25 years & counting in the same location

Decades before there were snowboards, North Face jackets or high-speed quad chairlifts, Bruce Kehr was at Stevens Pass. It was 1937 when Kehr and Don Adams, a skiing friend and business partner, acquired rights to a chunk of Big Chief Mountain. They cleared trees, and with an old Ford V-8 engine, some rope and wheels, they built the area’s first rope tow. From that seminal 1937-38 ski season, Stevens Pass has developed into 1,125 acres of skiable terrain. It has 37 major runs on two mountains. The winter resort, 65 miles southeast of Everett on U.S. 2, owes much of its history to Kehr and his wife, Virginia. Adams sold his interest in the business, and the Kehrs operated Stevens Pass from 1937 until 1976, living, working and skiing in their cherished Cascades. Bruce Kehr, who was raised in Puyallup and later lived at Lake Chelan, died last year. His wife died in 2005. Although Stevens Pass has been owned and operated by Harbor Properties, of Seattle, since 1976, the Kehrs’ legacy is well remembered. On Sunday, the man who shaped Stevens Pass will be commemorated when the Big Chief chairlift is renamed Kehr’s Chair. Members of the couple’s family and skiers will gather at 9 a.m. Sunday for the unveiling of new signs and a historical display. They’ll take a first ride up the newly named lift, which serves the slope where Bruce Kehr built that first rope tow. The Kehrs’ niece, Sharron Ward, remembers her aunt and uncle teaching her to ski. “The hill where the chairlift is going to be renamed, we would ski with those rope tows all the time,” said Ward, who lives in Chelan with her husband, Brad Ward. She spent summers, too, at Stevens Pass. Her aunt and uncle would take her swimming at Lake Wenatchee. In the early days, Sharron Ward said, the rope tow

You know you want to. Go ahead... lick the plate.

mechanism was built into the vestibule of the Kehrs’ mountain home. Brad Ward said that years ago, the Kehrs had no phone or refrigeration. Snowed in at times, their only communication was by ham radio. “They were hands-on, they were up there all the time,” said Ron Downing, a longtime owner of Mount Pilchuck Ski & Sport store in south Everett. Downing recalls the old rope tows, No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3. “One was fast, two was faster, and three was even faster yet. They’d burn up your gloves,” he said. Rick Sola, who ran Stevens Pass Ski School from 1974 until 1979, said the Kehr house still stands, adjacent to the resort’s Pacific Crest Lodge. He has good memories of the couple’s later years at Stevens Pass. “Even after Stevens Pass changed hands, we would still see them. He was a good skier, a very good oldschool skier. He was a true, alpine, parallel-christie kind of guy,” said Sola, now a lending specialist with Golf Savings Bank. “I don’t think Bruce ever strapped on a snowboard,” said Sola, adding that Virginia Kehr loved powder snow. “He was a quiet man. They loved the mountains and loved Stevens.” Sola said Kehr considered elevation as well as location in finding a perfect spot for skiers. “With an Eastern Washington weather influence, it had a moniker, ‘Stevens Pass is higher and drier,’ “ Sola said. Just over the Snohomish County line on U.S. 2, Stevens Pass “straddles King and Chelan counties,” Sola said. “The Pacific Crest Trail goes through the middle of it.” Sola considers the name Kehr’s Chair a fitting tribute. “It will be tremendously well received, particularly by folks who know the history,” he said. “They were true pioneer entrepreneurs of the Pacific Northwest ski industry.” —The Associated Press

Forget about all that beer drinkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and French wines! One of my ďŹ rst clients I ever had in real estate is here and we are dear friends. Our kids are friends and he ALWAYS thinks I am trying to sell him something! Who? Me? No way â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not that I know of anyway!

manage to meet at Center IV for a lovely lunch. The wine always helps relax those tired legs as we all know. But me, being the ding bat I can be, did not quite get to the large shrimp over ice. My client eats it all and puts the tails back into the ice sticking up. So I start grabbing them and just get tails! Now, I knowâ&#x20AC;Śthat when eating with him and sitting by him, I need to eat, not talk! Bye to you guys â&#x20AC;&#x201C; happy spring! â&#x20AC;&#x153;
