Light Rail is the preferred option in new I-70 report You’ll have 60 days to comment on CDOT’s new plans aimed at decreasing congestion By Chris Hoff Mountaineer Contributing Writer CDOT and the Federal Highway Administration have been working for years on a plan to improve congestion along the I-70 corridor between Denver and Glenwood Springs. On September 10, CDOT will make public a new Draft Program Environmental Impact Study (DPEIS) report,


which will be used to make improvements along the corridor. You’ll have 60 days to comment to CDOT on it. There are a number of changes expected in the new DPEIS report, which uses a similar document from 2004 as its foundation. Changes in funding, and a readjustment of focus on potential projects are a couple of those changes. In CDOT’s 2004 report, one of the main focuses was on cost. Six years

Stanley Cup winning goalie in town


Three time Stanley Cup winning goalie Jim Bedard was in Vail yesterday wrapping up a week-long hockey camp put on by the Vail Eagle-Vail Hockey Association at Dobson Ice Arena. Bedard, a Red Wing who went through the Avs to win a couple Stanley Cups, says he loves coaching the camp every year -- this is his seventh. “You got to learn to make the easy saves before you can make the big saves,” Bedard emphasized to the local boys and girls -- and adults -who attended the camp. The goalies were working on skating, balance, recovery and staying square to the puck -- all things they can carry through the winter season, Bedard said. Avery Cunliffe photo.

Stocks have been on a generally declining trend in August after charging ahead in July. A bevy of poor indicators on the economy, especially weak home sales, has pierced a sense of optimism brought about by a series of strong corporate earnings reports the month before. The Dow has lost ground in five of the past six trading sessions, and has shed 430 points over that time. Yesterday the Dow Jones industrial average closed at 9,985.81, down 74.25 for the day. The Standard and Poors 500 index closed down 8.11 at 1047.22, and Nasdaq closed at 2118.69, down 22.85.

later, that appears to have changed. Despite the fact funding resources have not become more available, a $4 billion funding threshold that was part of the 2004 report has been removed from the project. It was this threshold that divided projects between what were considered preferred projects and non-preferred projects. CDOT spokeswoman Stacey Stegman said the public feels the $4 billion thresh-

old was limiting options that would allow for long term planning, which caused it to be removed. “That threshold has been eliminated based on public comment,” she said. In the 2004 report, a high-speed light rail system -- which the report calls Advance Guidance Systems -- was considered a “non-preferred” method of reducing congestion. The 2010 report will have the AGS as a “preferred” alternative, while still considering other options. In an e-mail from CDOT, Stegman explains how light rail plan is being given more consideration. “The preferred alternative identifies an [See I-70 DOCUMENT, page 17]

Minturn Town Manager Jim White released the following statement yesterday regarding annexation issues in the town and surrounding area. White did not return a call for comment/clarification, which was placed just after the release was issued. -----On Thursday, August 19, 2010, the Colorado Court of Appeals overturned the Eagle County District Court’s Decision related to the Battle Mountain Annexation appeal filed by Sensible Housing Corporation. The implications include a challenge to portions of the annexed lands and also suspend the Battle Mountain developer’s ability to annex any additional lands. In November 2005, Ginn Battle submitted to Minturn petitions for annexation of nine parcels of land in Eagle County that included some disputed properties. Following Minturn’s annexation of the disputed properties, Sensible Housing filed this action in Eagle County District Court, alleging that Minturn exceeded its jurisdiction and abused its discretion by approving annexation when title to the disputed properties was being litigated.

On July 21, 2009, the district court dismissed the present case for lack of subject matter jurisdiction stating, “Sensible . . . has no standing, because it is neither a landowner nor a qualified elector.� The Court ruled that only a landowner or a qualified elector in the area proposed to be annexed has standing to request judicial review of a municipality’s annexation proceedings. Because Sensible Housing had appealed an order in an unrelated case, it was not a final order and it was determined by the Court of Appeals that an error had been made by the District Court in relying on that order to determine that Sensible Housing lacked standing. The case was remanded with directions to return the matter to Minturn to vacate those annexation ordinances related to the disputed properties and to stay annexation proceedings pending the outcome of the title litigation over the disputed properties. While legal teams are determining future strategies and courses of action, including an appeal to the Colorado Supreme Court through a writ of Certiorari, preparation for the trial in the Water Court planned in October continues.

Water and Sanitation District for wilderness, but not necessarily Hidden Gems expansion Wilderness and watershed management planning a complex topic The Board of Directors for the Eagle River Water and Sanitation District (ERWSD) expressed a concern yesterday that the public may have a wrong impression on their stance on the Hidden Gems Wilderness proposal. Comments made at a special joint meeting of the ERWSD and the Upper Eagle Regional Water Authority (UERWA) voiced a clear message that they want to work with wilderness groups as long as it does not interfere with their main objective and responsibility to provide “quality water” and make sure quantities are matched with demand. “I had people ask me why would we be against wilderness. I am not against wilderness preservation at all,” said Ludwig Kurz the Vice President and Assistant Secretary Treasurer for District 1. The consensus of the board agreed with Kurz and added one statement that the current proposals might hinder their responsibility to the public in the event they need to arrange for restoration of watersheds in the district if there is a fire or other catastrophe. “We are the watch-dogs for the public when it comes to the amount of water and the quality of water there is

in our district. Without water there will be no communities,” echoed another board member. Engineer Bob Weaver provided the board with some of the crucial nutrient study information necessary to help with the board’s stance on wilderness expansion. Weaver told the board that legislation such as the socalled “Hidden Gems” proposal, which aims to add 170,000 acres of new wilderness to Eagle and Summit Counties, could take many years to put through congress, hearings, and the steps to finalize the designation. Linn Brooks, Assistant General Manager for the district, had her staff provide a chart to the board to help show the public and directors what the interrelationships with regulatory operations and watershed management planning. A few laughs and comments were made on the graph’s complexity; however, Brooks said it is a complex topic. While the water board meetings took place, four major Colorado environmental groups urged residents [See WILDERNESS AND WATER, page 18]

The grade is in on the Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory and Sustainability Energy test of the town of Eagle. And the marks are good. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eagle did pretty well overall. You currently have some programs in place that are helping to drive down some of the emissions and we have some recommendations on other ways to help as well,â&#x20AC;? said Sustainability Outreach Program Coordinator Alison Culpen. She was in town this week from the Center for Sustainability Infrastructure Systems of the University of Colorado Denver. Culpen presented a PowerPoint presentation at Eagleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tuesday town meeting that outlined ways the town can reduce their overall Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHG), and where they currently rank against other towns in the state. According to the report, the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal is to reduce GHG 20 percent

The average vehicle miles traveled were 36.7 VMT/person/day. The average waste/wastewater 168 gallons per person, per day and the municipal solid waste were 3.1 lbs/person/day. Some of the unique characteristics of Eagle, the study stated, were the high amount of commuters per capita, the high food costs, the ratio of commercial to residential electricity was 1.6 compared to Denver at 3, no industry, and an extremely high average square foot per residence at 3,607. The usual energy efficient recommendations were made including utilizing more solar and wind systems, tax credits, and LED streetlights. Hybrid police vehicles and casual car-pooling were also recommended.

Shoulder Pain? S

uffering from shoulder pain or pain in the upper back and shoulder blade is very common. This is a condition that can limit any number of activities from working on a computer, golfing or even biking. The shoulder is a very unique region due to the great amount of movement that happens here. This is possible because the actual shoulder joint itself is not a tight fit like many other joints Many elite and in the body. Instead, muscles surrounding the joint professional sports (called the rotator cuff), provide a great amount of movement as well as stabilizing this joint. organizations have During the many activities of our daily lives, used ART extensively for these muscles can become tight and fail to improved recovery times, work properly. This leads to weakness, injury prevention and perforpain and limited movement mance enhancement. causing the shoulder and shoulder blade to become unstable. A revolutionary

Kelly Liken dinner raises funds for ‘sowing seeds’ educational program The servers shared the spotlight with the celebrity chef August 20 as Vail restaurateur and “Top Chef’s” Kelly Liken joined forces with a quartet of Brush Creek Elementary School students to produce a four-course epicurean delight, all to benefit the Vail Valley Foundation’s Sowing Seeds educational initiative. Hosted by Margie and Tom Gart at their Lake Creek home, the event raised funds for the pilot greenhouse project at Brush Creek Elementary as local couples enjoyed the gourmet dining experience. Created in conjunction with Liken, Sowing Seeds students plant and care for their own gardens in the Brush Creek greenhouse. The program not only connects children to their environment, but also fosters an understanding of the origin of food and teaches responsibility through stimulating hands-on activities. “It was a truly wonderful evening,” offered Vail Valley Foundation Director of Education Jean McSpadden, “and we are extremely grateful to the Garts, Kelly Liken and Rick Colomitz and the participating couples for helping to make a difference in the lives of our school children.” Assisting Liken in the kitchen, along with serving appetizers to the guests were Brush Creek Elementary stu-

dents Clementine Perkins, Abby Fields, Maddy Fields and Christopher Seabury. They were joined by Sandra Story, Director of the Sowing Seeds program, as well as Brush Creek Elementary Principal Anne Heckman. In addition to the “hands on” experience of helping to prepare and serve, the herbs that Liken utilized in the preparation of the meal were grown in the Brush Creek greenhouse by the students. The dinner also marked the conclusion of the inaugural Sowing Seeds Summer Camp, a five-day series of educational activities that immersed students in the natural world through games, experiments, crafts and gardening. “Sowing Seeds is an incredible program,” explained Ceil Folz, president of the Vail Valley Foundation, “and we are very excited to have had the opportunity to join forces with Kelly Liken to make this opportunity a reality. We are well aware that many valuable life lessons can be learned outside of the traditional classroom and the success of the program and this dinner are a great testament to that fact.” Sowing Seeds is a project of the Vail Valley Foundation.

president will return to the U.S. with Aijalon Gomes. She says Gomes should be in Boston by this afternoon. North Korea news agency KCNA says Carter has left Pyongyang. U.S. officials have billed Carter’s trip as a private humanitarian visit to try to negotiate Gomes’ release. Gomes was sentenced to eight years of hard labor in a North Korean prison for entering the country illegally from China. Congileo says North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il granted the amnesty at Carter’s request.

Gov. Bill Ritter is using $9 million from medical marijuana registrations to help the state meet a $60 million fiscal emergency. The state anticipates ending the year with 150,000 applicants for medical marijuana cards, up from 41,000 in 2009. A marijuana card costs $90 per year. Backers of medical marijuana legislation in a number of states and cities have touted revenue from possible taxes and other fees as a selling point at a time of tight fiscal funding.

The Army is ending a program that helped nearly 3,000 high school dropouts earn high school equivalency certificates and become soldiers. The GED pilot program known as the Army’s prep school started in the summer of 2008, when the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan left the service scrambling to find soldiers. But since then, with the economy in a downward spiral and jobs hard to come by, more people with diplomas have been enlisting. In 2008, 82.8 percent of people who enlisted for active duty were high school graduates. That number jumped to 94.6 percent in 2009. “We’re a victim of our own recruiting success,” said Col. Kevin Shwedo, deputy commander at Fort Jackson, the Army’s largest training installation.

Recruits who were in the program’s last class and have been in basic training for about five weeks said they were grateful to squeak through. “If it weren’t for the program, I’d still be a shift manager at McDonald’s,” said Kristi Garcia of Alice, Texas. And you thought those slides were just for angry flight attendants The tires of a JetBlue airplane caught fire yesterday during a hard landing in Sacramento that left 15 people with minor injuries and sent passengers down emergency slides to escape the aircraft. Passenger Michelle McDuffie said people on board felt a thud when the plane touched down after a flight from Long Beach, but nobody thought there was an emergency until the crew shouted for everyone to exit on the inflatable slides. McDuffie saw the burning tires when she was on the ground. “I thought, Oh I wish I had gotten my bag off. But I was just happy that I wasn’t hurt,” said McDuffie, 33, of Mission Viejo. The plane appeared to experience trouble with its brakes, the airline said in a statement. The 87 passengers were taken to the terminal by buses, said airport spokeswoman Gina Swankie, who couldn’t immediately confirm how many tires had blown on the plane. The nature of the injuries weren’t immediately available, but five people were taken to a hospital, Swankie said. An elderly woman was seen being loaded onto a stretcher, complaining of neck pains.

Colorado ag exports up in first half of year

Nightly Dinner Specials

Colorado agricultural exports in the first half of the year rose 27 percent from the same period last year, to $508.9 million, state officials said Wednesday. Colorado exports of meat, hides and skins; animal products such as milk, eggs and honey; miscellaneous food; and miscellaneous grains, seeds and fruit were all up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With continued efforts to open more global markets to Colorado and U.S. beef, we look forward to further increases in our beef exports,â&#x20AC;? Colorado Agriculture Commissioner John Stulp said in a written statement. Stulp also said he was encouraged by a nearly 91 percent increase in state exports of hides, which are used in car interiors, purses, shoes, belts and jackets. He said Asia has significantly increased hide imports. South Korea has reduced some of its barriers to U.S. beef in the past year, Larsen said, and Russia has started buying much more of Coloradoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s edible beef, going from about $100,000 in imports from Colorado in the first six months of 2009 to $19.5 million in the same period this year. Colorado is Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest supplier of fresh beef and Mexicoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second-largest supplier, the state Agriculture Department said.

Don’t let the kids get pregnant

Bruce Randolph School is the first in Denver to offer condoms, birth-control pills and emergency contraception for students whose parents have signed them up for service at the school clinic. The Colorado Association for School-Based Health Care says about 14 school-based health centers statewide dispense some form of contraception. They include Adams City High School in Commerce City and Durango High School in La Plata County. In 2009, Colorado’s teen birth rate was 19.7 and Denver’s was 30.8. Two years earlier, the statewide rate was 22.1 and Denver’s was 41.5. Federal health officials say the national birth rate for 15- to 17-year-olds was 22 per 1,000 in 2006, the most recent year tabulated.

Vet who died in prison gets national cemetery plot

Some military veterans are angry that a World War II soldier who died in prison after pleading guilty to killing his wife is scheduled to be buried Tuesday in Denver’s Fort Logan National Cemetery. Raymond R. Sawyer, an ex-Marine from Colorado, died Aug. 11 in a Tucson, Ariz., state prison while serving 13 years for second-degree murder. His wife, Frances A. Sawyer, was found strangled in August 1981 in Glendale, Ariz., where the couple lived. The case remained unsolved for 26 years. In 2007, sometime after Raymond Sawyer moved to the Denver suburb of Arvada, a cold-case investigator from Glendale went to Arvada to interview him in hopes of turning up new leads, Glendale police said. During the interview, Sawyer “broke down” and made statements about the slaying that only the killer could have known, Glendale spokesman Matt Barnett said at the time. Sawyer was arrested and taken to Arizona. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to prison in 2008.

Colorado unemployment rate steady at 8 percent

Colorado labor department head Donald Mares says he’s encouraged by recent stability in the state unemployment rate and job growth in the private sector. He says the challenge now is to sustain that growth. The department said last Friday that the seasonally adjusted Colorado unemployment rate for July held steady at 8 percent. The rate was 8.1 percent in July 2009. The national rate also was steady, at 9.5 percent in July. The state labor department says there were about 2.44 million working Coloradans in July, down from about 2.48 million a year ago. About 213,300 Coloradans were unsuccessfully looking for work. Even when adjusted for seasonal differences, the leisure and hospitality sector added about 3,100 jobs in July.

Colorado man pleads guilty in anthrax hoax

A Denver-area man has pleaded guilty to sending letters protesting federal health care reform and containing white powder to President Barack Obama, members of Congress from Colorado and Alabama and Argentine consulates. Forty-one-year-old Jay DeVaughn pleaded guilty yesterday in federal court in Denver to 13 counts of mailing threatening communications. DeVaughn, also known as Jay Paige Ewards, mailed a letter to Obama that was intercepted Sept. 10, 2009. The white powder in the letters was harmless. DeVaughn mailed letters to members of Colorado’s congressional delegation last year and earlier this year. He pleaded to sending letters to Alabama congressional members in January. DeVaughn’s sentencing is Nov.

Sotomayor predicts WikiLeaks case in Supreme Court

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor predicted yesterday that the nation’s high court will be asked again to weigh issues of national security versus free speech because of the recently leaked classified war documents posted on the WikiLeaks website. Sotomayor told high school and college students at the University of Denver that she couldn’t answer a student question about the security questions and free speech because “that question is very likely to come before me.” The release of the WikiLeaks documents, which included names of Afghans working with American forces, has been blasted by the Pentagon. It said the publication of those documents put lives at risk, while WikiLeaks employees insisted the website provides a public service for whistleblowers. Sotomayor said yesterday that the “incident, and others, are going to provoke legislation that’s already being discussed in Congress, and so some of it is going to come up before (the Supreme Court).” She added that the balance between national security and free speech is “a constant struggle in this society, between our security needs and our First Amendment

FDA says salmonella found in feed sold to both farms at center of massive recall

Food and Drug Administration officials say they have found positive samples of salmonella that link two Iowa farms to a massive egg recall. FDA officials said yesterday that investigators found salmonella in chicken feed at Wright County Egg that was used by that farm and also Hillandale Farms. They also found additional samples of salmonella in other locations at Wright County Egg. More than 550 million eggs from the two farms were recalled this month after they were linked to salmonella poisoning in several states. Also yesterday, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that there could now be as many as 1,470 illnesses linked to the outbreak, about 200 more than previously thought. Sherri McGarry of the FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition said the salmonella found at Wright County Egg matches the fingerprint of the salmonella found in many of those who were sickened. She said the tests indicate that contaminated feed is a source of the outbreak but possibly not the only source. —Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

CDOT DOCUMENT GOING PUBLIC Advanced Guideway System. CDOT has committed to evaluate and implement this pending funding, alignment, technology, ridership,” the e-mail reads. “All issues that will be explored in future studies.” Stegman explained ridership studies, environmental concerns and technological developments will continue to play a role in the planning process. If it appears changes in any of those areas make the project unfeasible, it won’t be built. In the 2004 report, CDOT found the AGS was the least cost-effective alternative to solve congestion problems in the I-70 corridor, based on price and expected usage. Stegman said the department’s budget is shaped by funds available. CDOT does not receive money from the general fund, the majority of its funds come from registration fees and gas taxes at a state and federal level. CDOT went from spending $800 million in 2003 to spending $1.6 billion in 2009. The 2010 budget is expected to be a marked step back, with CDOT estimating their budget to be just under $1 billion. The recent budget increases were due to extra money available to the dept. from the American Recovery and Investment Act, but the money had to be spent quickly and could not have been used on major projects like those being planned for the I-70 corridor that were not ready to be implemented. Meanwhile, a report released in March that details the health of Colorado’s highways does not paint a

good picture. There is a budget shortfall of nearly $380 million annually, just to maintain the roads at their current condition –– only 50 percent of the states highways rate fair/good. The DOT has established a goal of maintaining 60 percent fair/good status, budget shortfall for that goal is $500 million annually. Bridge maintenance doesn’t fair much better, with a $31 million annual deficit to maintain current conditions where 94 percent of the states bridges rate fair/good, and the budget falls $57 million annually short of the goal of reaching 95 percent. “Our whole budget could go to maintenance,” Stegman said. “But that’s not realistic.” She explained the DOT needs to balance the budget needs of maintenance with addressing problems that need to be resolved, that could mean something as simple as adding a signal at an intersection. “We are unable to maintain our roads at the level we would like to because we have to address other traffic problems,” Stegman said. Stegman said the DOT has already been working with stakeholder groups, like communities along the corridor, environmental groups, federal agencies, the ski resorts and the trucking industry. Since the 2004 report was put together, only small budget projects have taken place along the corridor. Examples of these projects are creating more chain-up [See CDOT DOCUMENT, page 19]

COMPLEX TOPIC: A yesterdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eagle River Water & Sanitation District meeting, district Assistant General Manager Linn Brooksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; staff provided this chart to the board to help show the interrelationships with regulatory operations and watershed management planning.

throughout the state to rally behind the proposal to protect 170,000 acres of public lands in Eagle and Summit Counties, which is now being worked on in the form of a bill for Congress by Congressman Jared Polis. Polis has released draft legislation, the Eagle and Summit County Wilderness Preservation Act, which would result in significant additions to the Eagles Nest, Ptarmigan and Holy Cross Wilderness Areas in Eagle and Summit Counties, part of the Second Congressional District that he represents. Â The Wilderness Society and the three other groups that comprise the Hidden Gems Wilderness Campaign are urging their members and the public at large to support the Polis proposal. Those groups include Golden-

based Colorado Mountain Club, Carbondale-based Wilderness Workshop and the Colorado Environmental Coalition, based in Denver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As Coloradoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population increases and pressure on our backcountry grows, common-sense proposals like this one from Congressman Polis will ensure wild places remain available to the public,â&#x20AC;? said Bryan Martin, director of conservation at the Golden-based Colorado Mountain Club, one of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest and largest conservation groups. Polisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; draft of the Eagle and Summit County Wilderness Preservation Act will be reviewed further by the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s congressional delegation when Congress returns from its summer recess in September.

areas for trucks, putting in ramp meters, and resurfacing. But the 2004 report was never submitted to the Federal Highway Administration for approval. Stegman is confident the new report will be. To address concerns about funding, she cited funding available from the American Recovery and Investment Act as an example. “We want to have projects ready for these opportunities, so we can take advantage of the funding,” she said. CDOT will make the Spetember 10 draft report available to the public for 60, during which time you will have the opportunity to voice your opinion on the plans it details. CDOT also has public hearings on the document planned for October.
