Two years of fluff



Investors jumped into stocks on Thursday as global efforts to end the financial crisis fed the market’s newfound optimism that the economy is on the mend. Stocks rallied broadly in heavy trading, fueled by an accounting rule change that could strengthen banks’ balance sheets and commitments from world leaders to boost regulatory oversight of financial institutions. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 216.48, or 2.8 percent, to 7,978.08. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 23.30, or 2.9 percent, to 834.38. The Nasdaq composite index rose 51.03, or 3.3 percent, to 1,602.63.

If you’re planning a picnic, there are always plenty logistics, from keeping the deviled eggs from spoiling to keeping the ants out of the sandwiches. If you’re going to have a gourmet outdoor picnic on top of Vail Mountain for hundreds of people, there are a lot more potential logistics. For example, there could be sun for today’s Taste of Vail mountain-top picnic, which starts at 12:30 p.m. near Eagle’s Nest at the top of the Eagle Bahn gondola. But the weather forecast calls for snow. In any case, there are bound to be plenty of hungry people, just like there are every year. “God invented snowfall. We invented Gore-Tex. We’re all here for the snow,” said Mickey Werner, an event board member and owner of Alpine Wine and Spirits in West Vail. “This is, without a doubt, the signature event.” Grilling and finger foods are both event themes, as is a signature hot cocktail, this year expected to include Grand Marnier, 10 Cane Rum and Navan, a vanilla liquor. All three liquor companies are event sponsors. Logistics are “no more than any other outdoor picnic,” Werner says, sounding nonchalant. But Paul Ferzacca, owner and executive chef of La Tour restaurant in Vail, knows better. After 17 or 18 years of being involved in the cooking for the picnic, Ferzacca packs for any occasion, this year bringing grills for his Asian flank steak with pickled carrots, daikon and fresh jalapeno “It doesn’t matter if it’s a white out up there, it’s still the greatest party, ever,” Ferzacca said. When it snows, patrons all squish into an event tent together, enjoying gourmet treats at long picnic tables.

Two years of fluff Last two seasons have spoiled Vail snowriders By John LaConte Vail Mountaineer Editor The average snowfall in Vail is 350 inches per season. Another couple inches and we’ll have reached 400 for 2008-2009, and we’ve still more than two weeks to go. At this rate, we’ll have eclipsed 440 inches for the season ‌ again. Last year Vail had 463. Vail ski patroller Julian Nuebauer says being in Vail the last two years has been an incredible experience. “The snow last year was amazing,â€? says Nuebauer. Last year he was a liftie. Then he made ski patrol. “And this year’s been fantastic as well. I’m so happy to be here in Vail.â€? Vail ski patrol director Julie Rust echoed the same sentiments. “It just keeps coming! It snowed all night and still coming down today,â€? she wrote on Vail’s Web site Monday. “Conditions are as good as they get!â€? And with more than four feet of snow in the last two weeks, it’s hard to describe Vail’s conditions as anything other than as good as it gets. As of Thursday morning Vail reported 13 inches in the last 48 hours to bring this year’s total to 396 inches. Add that to the 463 Vail received last year, and you’re looking at totals of nearly 860 inches. You could say that’s a little better than the 700 that would be considered average. Another big fluff weekend on the way And the National Weather Service says there’s more on the way. They’re forecasting snow showers likely for today and tonight. “Friday night: Chance of precipitation is 80%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible,â€? say their meteorologists. “For Saturday: Snow showers. High near 26. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New snow accumulation of 2 to 4 inches possible.â€? And the resort seems to be rolling with all the great snow forecasts, which is a nice reprieve from some of the dismal economic forecasts we’ve heard. “We recognize these are challenging times for many of our guests, which is why it’s so important that we make it easier for our guests to enjoy another ‘Epic’ ski or snowboard season by rolling back the prices for all of our passes – The Colorado, Epic and Summit passes - for the 2009-2010 season,â€? said Heidi Kercher-Pratt, vice president of corporate marketing for Vail Resorts. “Our focus continues to be on providing the best value to our most valuable guests.â€?

Two liquor stores, but no money and no beer By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer He was on his way from robbing one Eagle liquor store Thursday to another liquor store, apparently to rob it, too, when he conveniently piloted his truck toward the Eagle County Crossbar Hotel. It worked out well because that’s where he’s cooling his heels. And the thing is, even with all that intimate association with liquor stores Thursday afternoon, he wasn’t drunk. We’ll call him Two Timer. Two Timer walked nonchalantly into a liquor store on Grand Avenue, wandered around for a while and eventually picked up three cases of beer. It’s unclear what beer, but he didn’t seem to hold it in high enough esteem it to take it with him when he finally got around to making his getaway – which wasn’t right then. According to Sgt. Terry Simpkins of the Eagle Police Department, the clerk was distracted, either by Two Time or something else. When the clerk turned away, Two Timer dropped the beer, grabbed the cash box and bolted for the door. The clerk, an observant sort, immediately noticed that someone had wandered off with the cash box containing an estimated $800. Because Two Timer didn’t use a weapon or a simulated weapon, but relied on stealth and strength, it’s called a “strong arm robbery.” So when your mama asks what you learned today, you can tell her that. Meanwhile, back at Reality Ranch, the clerk was much more focused than your Uncle Randy and she called the police. It didn’t take long to identify Two Timer, his baseball cap and jacket, and his bright red GMC truck from the liquor store’s surveillance video. This wasn’t the first business dealing Eagle Police officers have had with Two Timer. They started toward local hotels to search parking lots and other places for a truck redder than Larry The Cable Guy’s neck. The fates smiled on Eagle Police Officer Andrew Shopnitz and he turned up Chambers toward the jail, conveniently enough. Officer Shopnitz spotted Two Timer climbing out of his bright red pickup truck and strolling toward the front door of the second liquor store all the way across town from the first store, ostensibly to try to rob it, too – although across town can be

an abbreviated trip in a place like Eagle. Two Timer didn’t make it to the liquor store door before Officer Shopnitz was explaining to him the error of his ways. They had a brief come-to-Jesus meeting in which Two Timer did, in fact, raise his hands toward Heaven and invoke the name of the Lord in various ways. It was something less than a religious experience for Two Timer. Before you can say, “but I didn’t even get any beer out of this deal,” Two Timer was reclining comfortably in the back of an Eagle Police patrol car, properly accessorized and sporting a fashionable set of I’m Busted Bracelets (handcuffs). Two Timer insists the cash box he stole from the first liquor store didn’t have any money in it, only business cards and other bits of scrap paper – nothing he’d actually drop into the offering plate at church. He says he pitched it into a dumpster. That particular bit of the investigation continues. Meanwhile, since the second liquor store he apparently wanted to rob was on the way to the Eagle County Crossbar Hotel anyway, Officer Shopnitz gave him a lift the rest of the way.

President Barack Obama says the world is a lot more complicated than it was in 1944. That’s when the countries that were victorious in World War II met to establish the financial architecture for the postwar era. Obama says negotiating is easy if it’s just Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill in a room, talking over brandy. But he says that’s not the world we live in now. Obama spoke at a news conference Thursday after a meeting in London of the world’s 20 largest and developing economies. The countries were meeting to address the worst economic crisis since World War II.

prove of his job performance. The Quinnipiac University survey also says the fiveterm veteran would lose his seat to either of two declared Republican challengers if the election were held today — even though many people admitted they don’t know much about either challenger. Slipping below a 50 percent approval rating is often considered a red flag for incumbents. Quinnipiac Poll Director Douglas Schwartz said Dodd’s 33 percent approval rating, a dip from 44 percent in a March 10 poll, is “especially devastating.” “A 33 percent job approval is unheard of for a 30-year incumbent, especially a Democrat in a blue state,” Schwartz said. The poll also found Dodd trails his two announced Republican challengers, former GOP Congressman Rob Simmons and Connecticut state Sen. Sam Caligiuri. Former ambassador Tom Foley, who has not announced whether he will run against Dodd, also would hold an edge over the veteran Democrat, according to the poll. It shows Simmons defeating Dodd by a margin of 50 percent to 34 percent. Dodd also trails Caligiuri 41 percent to 37 percent, and Foley 43 percent to 35 percent.

Evidently down on its luck, the Florida Lottery Department is taking a page out of Payless shoe store’s book. Buy one – get one free. “Last week more than a million homes got a flier in the mail last week which had a coupon for ‘buy one lottery ticket, get a second one free’ and the new “second chance” drawing,” reports CBS4 of Miami. “State officials say lottery ticket sales are down seven percent compared to last year. This is the first time since 1996 that lottery officials have mailed out coupons to entice more people to play.”

Anxiously assembled at the most perilous moment for the global economy since the Great Depression, the world’s financial powers pledged more than $1 trillion Thursday for emergency loans to combat spreading chaos. But they rebuffed President Barack Obama’s bid for new stimulus spending and made no guarantees of success. “This was the day the world came together to fight back against global recession,” declared British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, the summit host, as he led a choreographed show of unity designed to boost confidence in homes and boardrooms everywhere. “This is

Pssst â&#x20AC;Ś that dry, white pinot grigio at the apres ski Taste of Vail event on Thursday went mighty well with the savory shortbread cookied with cranberries, blue cheese and rosemary.

Vail Gourmet Cookie Co. owner Barb Patay has been experimenting for three months to find just the right savory cookie. When she got tired of tasting the cookies, she asked her friends for their opinions. While the cookie business doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a storefront, it bakes cookies to order and ships them nationwide. Also offered at the table was a lemongrass cookie with white chocolate and an apricot bar with dates, walnuts and cashews. Next door, Grouse Mountain Grill offered a fancy ceviche of fluke, a summer sole, with pickled beet and yuzu viniagrette, with a Japanese citrus-y taste. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just wanted to do something different in this type of environment,â&#x20AC;? said Emily Meyer, executive sous chef at the restaurant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t order it in a restaurant.

five years for the Taste of Vail and skiing. Anders characterized the dessert as “kinda savory, kinda sweet, with some smoke to it.” At a nearby table, Steven Loftus was drinking port, while his wife, Ana, tried to stick to champagne and white wine tastes. “Drink dessert first, right?” Loftus said, when asked if the port was sweet and heavy or not. The couple was talking to James Cannava, a neighbor in East Vail, who was drinking a red from winemaker Louis LaTour. Juniper restaurant, of Edwards, also tried out a dessert at the apres


ski event, with partner Kirby Kelly promising “something more savory” for the Taste’s grand tasting event on Saturday. “This shows off both sides of our restaurant,” Kelly said. Kneeling nearby was Adam Venner, concentrating carefully as he put the finishing touches on a few more green tea and cinnamon lemon mousse desserts. The crowning touch was a colored piece of candied cinnamon. The four-day Taste of Vail charity event culminates with a “grand tasting” and dinner dance starting at 7 p.m. at the Vail Marriott.

food is the theme.” Zinfandel from Terre Rouge, a winery near Sacramento, Calif., is just one of the drinks that will be served at the picnic. It may be seen as a great summer afternoon wine, but it’s also good for a crisp luncheon and grilled foods, said Bill Easton, the winemaker. The winery also is auctioning off a few magnums of rare wines to benefit the charity event at tonight’s chef showcase dinner. “There’s a 50/50 chance we’ll have a blizzard,” Easton said, grinning. Snowfall can diminish attendance by 10-15 percent, but not to worry, “the locals who live here don’t notice,” Werner said. What folks do notice, however, is the altitude. Even residents who live at 9,000 feet above sea level should remember that they’re up around 11,000 feet for the event, Werner said. Chefs recommend that diners take the gondola back down to the bottom, Ferzacca said. Other restaurants featured at the picnic will include Kelly Liken in Vail, Blu’s in Vail, French Press of Edwards, Terra Bistro in Vail, Two Elk Restaurant and Wildwood (both of which are used to cooking at elevation. Just in case anyone forgets, all proceeds from Taste of Vail go to charities in Eagle County, with this year’s proceeds going to Eagle County charter schools, Werner said.

Crybaby Cutler now Chicago Bears’ problem Broncos agree to trade QB for Orton, draft picks

If you’re going to joke with Fedor, it’s best to do it when he’s not around to avoid getting crushed like a can over Fedor’s head.

UFC and Fedor Emelianenko after Fedor’s management said they wanted the UFC to build a stadium in Russia, Dana White released a satirical news announcement saying they got the green light for construction of a stadium in Russia. “This is a big moment for the company and I couldn’t have picked a better day to announce this monumental event,” UFC president Dana White said in the fake announcement. “I can’t wait for this Stadium to be finished and we’re even including the fans in the process by holding a contest on the internet for people to choose the name of it.” Fedor has yet to crush anyone at UFC for making fun of him.

Jay Cutler got his wish Thursday: a ticket out of Denver. And the Chicago Bears have a franchise quarterback for the first time in decades. The Broncos on Thursday traded their disgruntled Pro Bowl passer to the Bears, who’ve gone through a bevy of quarterbacks without much success ever since Jim McMahon was calling plays in the 1980s. The Broncos get quarterback Kyle Orton in return, along with two first-round draft picks and a thirdrounder. The Broncos get the Bears’ top pick in this year’s draft, which is No. 18 overall, and Chicago’s firstround draft pick in 2010, along with a third-round selection this year (No. 84 overall). Denver also gave up a fifth-rounder this year. Calls to Cutler’s agent, Bus Cook, went unanswered. His office in Hattiesberg, Miss., was closed because of bad weather and his home phone had a message asking callers to call back later. An e-mail sent by The Associated Press wasn’t returned. Cutler asked for a trade last month after his relationship with Josh McDaniels soured when the new

32-year-old coach talked to other teams about trading him. Cutler and his agent didn’t think McDaniels was upfront with them about the trade talks. Two meetings designed to clear the air only raised Cutler’s level of distrust. Still, McDaniels insisted over and over that Cutler was his guy and he said at last week’s NFL owners meetings that he would do everything he could to repair their relationship. When the rocket-armed but thin-skinned passer didn’t return the Broncos’ phone calls, however, team owner Pat Bowlen said enough was enough. On Tuesday night, he announced he had given his new brain trust of McDaniels and general manager Brian Xanders the go-ahead to seek a trade for the quarterback who made the Pro Bowl in just his second season as a starter. Now, the Bears have a top quarterback, albeit one with baggage. “I don’t have any concerns,” Bears general manager Jerry Angelo said. “(Coach Lovie Smith) and I talked about that. We did, like a lot of people who were interested in Jay, a lot of work going back to not just when he was with Denver (but) but going back to his days at Vanderbilt.” Angelo said area scout Rex Hogan lives in the Nashville area and developed a “great rapport” with Cutler coming out of Vanderbilt in 2006. “We felt that (Cutler) is a very good person, a good

leader,â&#x20AC;? Angelo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had some things that happened in Denver. We recognized those, but we treated them as just speed bumps, part of the growing process. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highly competitive, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highly emotional. That just comes with the territory.â&#x20AC;? Although Cutler is 17-20 as a starter, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been victimized by dismal defenses in Denver, and he was an impressive 13-1 when the Broncos held opponents to 21 points or fewer. Last year, Cutler threw for a franchise record 4,526 yards, 25 touchdowns and 18 interceptions. In his 37-game career in Denver, he completed 62.5 percent of his passes for 9,024 yards, 54 TDs and 37 interceptions. Although he was prone to mistakes, his bold and at times risky play wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just tolerated but encouraged by former Broncos coach Mike Shanahan, who would often laud Cutler for not just dumping off short passes to pad his statistics but instead dared to go downfield, even into coverage. He said that trait would make him great one day. Cutlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inability to quickly fulfill that forecast cost Shanahan his job on Dec. 30 after the Broncos missed the playoffs for the third straight year. Cutler wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happy about Shanahanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s firing. And he was upset when his position coach, Jeremy Bates, bolted for Southern Cal because McDaniels will be the one calling plays in Denver now. When he hired McDaniels, Bowlen proclaimed that Cutler â&#x20AC;&#x153;is the man around here, now.â&#x20AC;? That didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last long. Cutler started to get over Shanahanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dismissal and Batesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; departure and he told McDaniels in February he was eager to learn his new offense. But that all changed on Feb. 28, when Cutler learned McDaniels had talked about trading him to Tampa Bay in a three-way deal that would have brought McDanielsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; protege, Matt Cassel, from New England to Denver. McDaniels had tutored Cassel, who led New England to an 11-5 record after Tom Brady suffered a seasonending injury in the opener last year. That sent McDanielsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; stock soaring and landed him in Denver as Shanahanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s successor. It seemed like the perfect match: the rocket-armed passer meets the offensive guru. But McDanielsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dalliance with his former pupil blew up in his face when he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t clue in Cutler, and now McDaniels begins his era in Denver by chasing off his 25-year-old Pro Bowl quarterback â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to face Cassel twice a year because the Patriots ended up sending his protege to Kansas City instead. As for Cutler, he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to ditch his West Coast style for the intricate Patriots-style offense. He might be going to one of the teams he rooted for as a kid growing up in Santa Claus, Ind., but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also

leaving a great pocket of protection in Denver, where left tackle Ryan Clady is considered the best young tackle in the game, and a great bunch of receivers led by fellow Pro Bowler Brandon Marshall and Eddie Royal. Behind young tackles Clady and Ryan Harris, Cutlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offensive line allowed just a dozen sacks. The Bears, however, signed free agent left tackle Orlando Pace on Thursday. Denver now has Orton, fellow newcomer Chris Simms and Darrell Hackney at quarterback. Simms, who signed a two-year, $6 million free agent deal ostensibly to serve as Cutlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backup, has thrown just two passes since undergoing emergency surgery to remove his spleen after a game in 2006. Hackneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next NFL pass will be his first. Angelo made it clear in December, after his team went 9-7 and missed the playoffs for the second straight year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that solidifying the quarterback spot was his top priority. Now, he has a Pro Bowler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you just look at the history of the league, I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recall a situation quite like this,â&#x20AC;? Angelo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All we did was react to a situation that we felt affected our football team.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;The Associated Press

Van looks out the window at Mezzaluna at the Gondola going up Vail Mountain in the dark. Van is the son of Eric, owner of Mango’s. The two of them came down from Redcliff for father/son night to see the show for Street Beat. The view from Mezzaluna bar is amazing, looking on to Gore Creek and up the mountain out. Stop by for après ski and check out the view from inside or their patio. Mezzaluna is located in Lionshead.

Will and Matt don’t like it when one is in the paper and the other brother is not... So here they are. They both were enjoying the day and the beach in Arrowhead. Will is older and Matt is curious. But after a long day of skiing, neither one of them cared if their hair was in place.
