THE UPDATE

General Motors yesterday finally filed the first documents to go public again after its 2009 bankruptcy. The auto giant hopes to sell both common and preferred stock to the public. The initial public offering is expected to come to market in November. The sale could reduce the US government’s stake to below 50 percent. In other market news, the Dow ended the day relatively flat. The Dow Jones Industrials average rose 9.69, or 0.09 percent, to 10,415.54. The Nasdaq Composite Index rose 6.26, or 0.28 percent, to 2,215.70. The Standard and Poor’s 500 Index rose 1.62, or 0.15 percent, to 1,094.16.

Bill Winsor holds seminar on hunting down fungi By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer

When it comes to hunting for mushrooms in Colorado, there’s no simple trick for tracking them down. But everyone’s got a theory or two. Mycologist Bill Windsor has dedicated most of his life to understanding where and why mushrooms grow, but he says folks looking learn about mushrooming should begin by focusing on one or two species and take it from there. “It can be very daunting to try and identify them all at once,” Windsor said yesterday after leading mushroom seminar hosted by the Vail Valley chapter of Slow Food USA. “You should pick one or two mushrooms with very specific characteristics and just focus on those; that’s a great way to start.” Windsor, a former president of the Colorado Mycological Society, said the three best mushrooms to focus on in this area are the king boletus (or porcini in

decades, and included his findings in many of the Left Bank’s dishes before he retired. “I love to prepare them,” Meyer said. [See SHROOMING, page 19]

Jacky Terrasson Trio plays Lionshead tonight Jacky Terrasson is no stranger to the spotlight. When Terrasson won the prestigious Thelonious Monk piano competition in 1993, he proceeded to lead one of the defining jazz piano trios of that decade. By the mid-’90s, Terrasson was being hailed as one of the bright young lions on the traditional jazz scene. His self-titled 1995 debut for Blue Note Records drew high praise from all corners of the jazz world. His feathery keyboard touch is coupled with power and passion and a complete understanding of the blues and improvisation. Terrasson is also a gifted arranger. Terrasson will be joined on stage by drummer Gerald Cleaver and bassist Ben Williams. The show takes place at Vail Square in Lionshead, is free, and starts at 6 p.m.

Minturn finalizes medical marijuana ballot question ‘Shall the operation and licensing of ... medical marijuana-infused products manufacturers shall be prohibited in the town of Minturn?’ By Mike Friend Mountaineer Staff Writer The Minturn Town Council approved the official medical marijuana ballot language for the November election at last night’s meeting with only one question about its wording. The ballot question will read, “Shall the operation and licensing of medical marijuana centers optional premises cultivation operations, and medical marijuana-infused products manufacturers be prohibited in the town of Minturn?� Councilman Earle Bidez asked if there were any issues with the wording of the ballot question. City Manager Jim White said, “No, there’s none.� And that’s that. Registered voters in Minturn will weigh in on the above ballot question at the November 3 general election.

Other business Also at last night’s Minturn Town Council meeting, Councilman Matt Scherr announced his resignation from the board. “The October 6 meeting will be my last. I will be retiring my position,� said Scherr. Scherr did not give a reason for his departure, however later in the meeting he announced a possible move. The council swore the three Planning Commissioners that they previously voted in at the previous town meeting. Frank Lorenti of Minturn, who put his name in for the possible open seat, showed concern over a potential “conflict of interest� against a previous board member and local architect, Stuart Brunnett. “This is a non-issue. In the last two years this has come up two maybe three times, and I removed myself from the project,� said Brunnett.

Construction to impact play at Vail Golf Club this fall Club will be closed all day October 4, green fee discounts available Improvements to the Vail Golf Club will take place this fall and include rebuilding of the upper tees or back tees on hole seven, replacement of the bridges located on holes eleven and 17 and building new weather shelters on holes three and 11. Weather permitting, work will begin Sept. 27 and last through November and include a variety of impacts to play at the golf course with the entire course scheduled for a single-day closure on Oct. 4. Vail Golf Club Superintendent Stephen Sarro says the improvements are taking place to address safety concerns and replace 40-year-old aging structures. Sarro says depending on the area of work taking place, the golf course will have from six to 13 holes open for play during construction. “We’re scheduling work with the least impacts feasible to our golfers while being able to complete the work as quickly as possible,” said Sarro. “These projects are going to result in positive impacts to both golf and Nordic experiences. Safety for our users is a top priority and these improvements will also ensure a safe and enjoyable course for future years.” A schedule of the work is as follows and is subject to change: • 7th Tee Box: Sept. 27 to Mid-November This six-week project will include work on the walls and soil structure during the fall with final irrigation work and sod being installed during the spring. From Sept. 27 to Oct. 4, holes one, two and eight through 18 are scheduled to be available for play. • Weather Shelters: Sept. 27 to Oct. 31

Weather shelters will be installed along holes three and eleven. The shelters will provide cover during storms, a shaded resting place and shelter when the lightning detection system sounds off. Construction of the shelters will not impact play on the golf course. • Bridges: Oct. 4 to Oct. 31 Work to replace the bridges across Gore Creek on holes 11 and 17 will take approximately two to four weeks and during installation will require closure of holes 11 through 17. Approximately six holes of golf will be available at all times during this work. Replacement of the bridges is needed to address the aging structures, enhance the creek banks and repair damage from the high creek water that occurred late this spring. The bridges will be wider than the current bridges to allow for year-round maintenance equipment. Additional work is scheduled during the improvements including removal of beetle killed trees on holes two, five and eight, hollow tine and top dressing work on all practice greens and winterization of the irrigation system. Discounts for daily green fees will occur during the work and vary depending on the amount of play available. 2010 Punch Cards will not be valid in 2011 as the golf club will offer a variety of options to entice golfers to play at the Vail Golf Club during construction, including opportunities for unlimited play. “We understand the work will be an inconvenience for our golfing community,” said club director Alice Plain. “We’ll offer great fall deals so that our golfers, both guests and visitors, can enjoy the best experience possible during the work.” Golfers interested in following the progress of the fall construction and other information on golf course maintenance, can follow Sarro’s Blog at vailgcm.blogspot.com.

Yesterday, we received a release dedicated solely to Heidi Kloser, the Vail native and World Cup Freestyle rookie of the year in 09-10. The ski team press office had great things to say about the local up-and-comer. “She has a bright future and has worked really hard to get to

this point,� Head Coach Scott Rawles was quoted saying in the release. “She went out to Lake Placid and worked with Wes Preston, who helps Hannah [Kearney] when she’s jumping there. She trained with him in between camps in Park City, so she’s had a really busy summer.� The focus of the release was to point out how hard Kloser’s been working, splitting her time between Lake Placid and Park City. “Kloser has dedicated her summer to flying high at the Lake

Placid and Utah Olympic Park water ramps,� it said. Heidi’s dad Mike Kloser, said he was pretty excited to see the release, as well. “I saw the posting hit the Internet yesterday, and I thought it was pretty cool that it was solely about Heidi. As her father, now I guess I have the right to brag a little bit,� Kloser said. Other U.S. Ski Team members to receive releases entirely about them this year include Lindsey Vonn and Bode Miller.

-----------------------------------------

gade, 2nd Infantry Division, it was a moment of relief fraught with symbolism. Seven years and five months after the U.S.-led invasion, the last American combat brigade was leaving Iraq, well ahead of President Barack Obama’s Aug. 31 deadline for ending U.S. combat operations there. American presence has become commonplace in Iraq since the invasion began on March 20, 2003. That presence is far from over. Scatterings of combat troops still await departure, and some 50,000 will stay another year in what is designated as a noncombat role. They will carry weapons to defend themselves and accompany Iraqi troops on missions (but only if asked). Special forces will continue to help Iraqis hunt for terrorists. So the U.S. death toll — at least 4,415 by Pentagon count as of yesterday — may not yet be final.

Egg recall tied to salmonella grows to 380 million

Hundreds of people have been sickened in a salmonella outbreak linked to eggs in four states and possibly more, health officials said yesterday as a company dramatically expanded a recall to 380 million eggs. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is working with state health departments to investigate the illnesses. No deaths have been reported, said Dr. Christopher Braden, a CDC epidemiologist involved in the investigation. Much of the investigation so far has been centered on restaurants in California, Colorado, Minnesota and North Carolina. They are not necessarily breakfast places — it’s possible some got sick from eating a salad dressing that had a raw egg in it, or eating soup with an undercooked egg dropped in, Braden said. Initially, 228 million eggs, or the equivalent of 19 million dozen-egg cartons, were recalled by the company Wright County Egg of Galt, Iowa. But that number was increased to nearly 32 million dozen-egg cartons. The initial recall was issued last week. Eggs affected by the expanded recall were distributed to food wholesalers, distribution centers and food service companies in California, Colorado, Minnesota, Arkansas, Arizona, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Oklahoma, Oregon, Missouri,

Nebraska, Nevada, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin. The most common symptoms of salmonella are diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever within eight hours to 72 hours of eating a contaminated product. It can be life-threatening, especially to those with weakened immune systems. This form of salmonella can be passed from chickens that appear healthy. And it grows inside eggs, not just on the shell, Braden noted. Thoroughly cooking eggs can kill the bacteria. But health officials are recommending people throw away or return the recalled eggs.

Dr. Laura plans to end radio show at end of year

Talk show host Laura Schlessinger says her desire to talk freely without having affiliates and sponsors attacked led to her abrupt decision to end her “Dr. Laura” radio show later this year. Schlessinger said she is walking away a week after apologizing for saying the N-word 11 times on the air while talking to a black woman with a white husband, then saying “if you’re that hypersensitive about color and don’t have a sense of humor, don’t marry out of your race.” She apologized a day after the Aug. 10 remarks, but Media Matters for America called for her removal from the talk show. The group encouraged its members to contact show sponsors and affiliates and urge them to drop “Dr. Laura.” Schlessinger said Tuesday on CNN’s “Larry King Live” that her daily talk show will end when her contract expires this year, with the last show probably around Christmas. She said she was wrong to say what she said, was sorry for it, but “there are people who won’t accept my apology.”

A Muslim woman who works as a hostess at a Disneyland restaurant alleged yesterday the theme park would not allow her to appear in front of customers while wearing her head scarf. Imane Boudlal, 26, appeared outside the resort’s Grand Californian Hotel after filing a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. She said when she wore the hijab to work Sunday, her supervisors told her to remove it, work where customers couldn’t see her, or go home. Boudlal, who wore the scarf in observance of Ramadan, chose to go home but reported to work for the next two days and was told the same thing. Disneyland spokeswoman Suzi Brown said Disney has a policy not to discriminate. The resort offered Boudlal a chance to work with the head covering away from customers while Disneyland tries to find a compromise that would allow Boudlal to cover her head in a way that fits with her hostess uniform, Brown said. “Typically, somebody in an on-stage position like hers wouldn’t wear something like that, that’s not part of the costume,” Brown said. “We were trying to accommodate her with a backstage position that would allow her to work. We gave her a couple of different options and she chose not to take those and to go home.”

Arnold sending troops to Mexican border

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger yesterday said he was sending more than 200 national guard troops to the California-Mexico border, according to the LA Times. After a tour of the border yesterday, Schwarzenegger said he plans to have 224 troops in place by Sept. 1, the Times reports. “These men and women will provide much-needed assistance to help secure our border, but it’s important to remember that this is only the beginning,” Schwarzenegger was quoted saying in the article. “We must find a permanent solution to our broken immigration system.

We need the federal government to step up with even more manpower and funding, and I will continue to push President Obama and Congress for action.”

J.D. Salinger’s toilet up for auction

It’s almost as if “The Catcher in the Rye” author J.D. Salinger saw this moment coming in 1953 when he retreated in growing distress about his own fame to small-town New Hampshire and became a notorious recluse, according to NewsObserver. com. Salinger’s toilet, the ultimate symbol of privacy for a man notorious for defending his, is being auctioned on eBay, writes the Web site’s Jay Price. A well-known memorabilia and collectibles dealer based in Kernersville who has stalked Salinger items for years is reportedly asking the standard eBay heylook-at-this-bizarre-thing-I’ve-got price of $1 million but said he’s open to reasonable offers.

Sin City named most stressful

Forbes magazine found Las Vegas to be the most stressful city in the country, followed by Los Angeles, Calif., and Houston, Texas, according to Yahoo.com. To pinpoint the most stressed-out cities, the report measured the country’s largest metropolitan areas on six metrics that can either cause or be caused by stress: high unemployment, long commute times, long work hours, limited access to health care, poor physical health and a lack of exercise, the article says. Tampa, Florida, and Riverside, California, reportedly round out the top five.

Tongue patch for dieters

The LA Times has reportedly received PR materials on a recently popular Californian weight-loss treatment in which you tie up your tongue “as a constant and daily reminder of [the] desire and choice to lose weight,” according to the newspaper. On further reading, it doesn’t seem quite like tying (but it still sounds uncomfortable), as, according to the PR information, the tongue is measured, then a patch is cut from surgical mesh and attached to your tongue, the article says. While affixed, it reportedly “causes discomfort when the patient tries to eat or chew.” The “ideal patient” can experience 15 to 30 pounds of weight loss in a month on a liquid diet, the publicists are quoted saying in the article, and then the patch is removed.

The destructive effects of illicit anabolic steroids on heart function, as well as the helpful effects of chocolate consumption, may be widely assumed by physicians and patients, according to the LA Times. But two new studies - published by the American Heart Association - actually deliver the evidence, the article says. Most know that eating chocolate - particularly dark chocolate - lowers blood pressure and risk of cardiovascular disease, according to the Times. But a study, published online on Monday, reportedly finds that it protects women, at least, against heart failure as well. Researchers followed 31,823 Swedish women ages 48 to 83 for nine years and tallied their chocolate consumption, according to the article. For those who ate one to three servings of chocolate per month, their risk of heart failure fell 25 percent, and those who ate one to two servings of chocolate per week saw a 30 percent reduction in risk during the study period, the Times reports.

headlines for performing multiple surgeries on reality TV star Heidi Montag, has died. He was 50 years old. The California Highway Patrol says Ryanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1995 Jeep Wrangler went off the side of Pacific Coast Highway near Malibu and landed on its roof Monday afternoon. He was reportedly texting at the time of the crash, and may have had his border collie, Jill, riding in his lap. According to the doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s twitter page, he had just stopped and snapped a pic of his dog atop the beach dunes to post on the social media Web site. Besides MONTAG Montag, Ryanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebrity clientele included musician Vince Neil, actor Lorenzo Lamas, reality stars Lisa Gastineau and Adrianne Curry and several models and beauty queens. Montag, who underwent 10 procedures in one day with Ryan late last year, took to Twitter to share her reaction to his death. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am devastated,â&#x20AC;? the 23-year-old wrote on the micro-blogging site Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was the most amazing person I have ever known. He was an angel and changed my life and the lives of everyone he met. He was the most brilliant talented surgeon who will ever exist. Dr. Frank Ryan changed the world.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

Woods/Williams breakup unlikely Not to be confused with Woods/Woods breakup

476-7888

Located in the Vail Racquet Club, East Vail

Tiger Woods caddie Steve Williams told New Zealand radio yesterday that he and Woods remain close friends and there is no possibility their working relationship is about to end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure if there was going to be some sort of parting of the ways, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be the first to know,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From my point of view, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see any chance of that happening.â&#x20AC;? Williams said Woods had no plans to change his key personnel, though he has struggled to regain form after taking a break from the PGA Tour amid revelations of marital infidelities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People speculate. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not playing well and his results arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re used to,â&#x20AC;? Williams, of New Zealand, said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tiger and I are very good friends and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been through a tough time. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no question about that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m fully supportive of the guy and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been great through this whole situation with me.â&#x20AC;? Woods consulted with swing coach Sean Foley at the PGA, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unclear whether he will work with him full time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t decided if thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the coach whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be with him, but I really like what this new guy had to say and

what his theories are,â&#x20AC;? Williams said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If Tiger decides to stick with Sean, I believe heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get better. It might take a little while.â&#x20AC;? Woods finished 28th at last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s PGA Championship in Wisconsin, a week after posting the worst 72-hole total of his careerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;18 over parâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;at the Bridgestone Invitational event in Ohio. Williams said nobody should rush to the conclusion Woods was losing his ability or his aura. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the end of the day, Tiger Woods is Tiger Woods,â&#x20AC;? Williams said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s won 14 majors and 71 PGA Tour events. Regardless of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gone on, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take that away from the guy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tiger knows how to win and people know that he knows how to win. When he gets back in the situation where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playing well again and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in contention to win, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get the job done.â&#x20AC;? Williams said Woods remained hopeful of being selected by U.S. captain Corey Pavin for the Ryder Cup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the biggest events in the world and anybody thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s played in it before always has the desire to play in it again,â&#x20AC;? Williams said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a couple more weeks to show him (Pavin) that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playing better.â&#x20AC;?

Brett Favre rejoins Vikings

WHY NOT?: Minnnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre addresses the media during a news conference after NFL football training camp yesterday in Eden Prairie, Minn. The Vikings in need of an answer, Brett Favre announced he would return to quarterback the team this season. AP Photo.

The last time the world saw Brett Favre in action, the 40-year-old was barely able to walk off the turf following a beating at the hands of the New Orleans Saints in January’s NFC title game. Favre was one play away from his goal—taking the Minnesota Vikings to the Super Bowl—when he threw an interception in the final minute of regulation, then watched from the sidelines as the Saints kicked the winning field goal in overtime. “Believe me, when I left New Orleans, a big part of me was—I don’t want to say done—but the fact that we lost that game, how hard it is,” Favre said, his voice trailing off. Ryan Longwell, Steve Hutchinson and Jared Allen, his three closest friends

on the team, unexpectedly arrived at his doorstep on Monday night. “We need an answer, yes or no,” they told Favre. “We’re either going home with you or moving on without you.” So here we are, with Favre about to start his 20th NFL season. “I’ve done it all. There’s nothing left for me to prove,” said Favre, who joined the Vikings for practice yesterday. “I’m here to have fun, help these guys win. I really enjoy this group of guys like you wouldn’t believe. I think the feeling is mutual.” The gray-haired Favre threw 33 touchdowns and only seven interceptions to lead the Vikings to the NFC North title last season.

Windsor was introduced to mushroom hunting at a young age by his uncle in Ger-

â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;--------------------------------------

many. As a college student in Long Island, his continued interest was driven by really wanting to eat them and by the fact that they were free, as a lot of college students can appreciate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would really study the area,â&#x20AC;? Windsor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where are these things growing? Are they growing near the water? Are they growing next to dead trees? Are they growing next to live tress? Are they growing on a hilltop or a hillside? Over time you get a very good sense of the different environments that mushrooms grow in, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no single, quick trick for finding them.â&#x20AC;? Windsor said the percentage of mushrooms that are prime edibles and percentage that are deadly poisonous are exactly the same: 2 percent. Everything in between is simply compost. But, if you do some research, consuming wild mushrooms that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve picked yourself is extremely safe. The nutritional benefits vary from â&#x20AC;&#x2122;shroom to â&#x20AC;&#x2122;shroom, but several contain protein that is more easily digested in the body than that from meat. Mushrooms also contain minerals

[From page 1]

and polysaccharides that can prevent cancer, build the immune system and lower blood pressure â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just to name a few of the healthy benefits. The best way to get involved in mushroom hunting is by contacting a mycology society (there are several in Colorado) or by checking out a book on the subject. Windsor says the two best for this area are â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mushrooms of Coloradoâ&#x20AC;? by Vera Evenson, which is available at the Bookworm in Edwards, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;All that the Rain Promises and Moreâ&#x20AC;? by David Aurora. There are also several mushroom festivals happening this summer including the local Eagle Mushroom Festival in Eagle this weekend, the King Boletus Festival in Buena Vista, also this weekend, and the Crested Butte Wild Mushroom Festival. The Eagle Mushroom festival starts tomorrow and runs through Sunday. Check out the Eagle Ranch Pavilion Studio Building Saturday evening for a mushroom cook-up as part of the festival.
