Beloved philanthropist Gerald Gallegos dies

The local who always had a smile on his face built one of America’s largest masonry companies from the ground up

Local philanthropist Gerald Gallegos, founder of The Gallegos Corporation, passed away late Wednesday night of health complications, his family said yesterday. Gallegos built The Gallegos Corporation, a name that has become synonymous with masonry in the Vail Valley, from the ground up. Born in 1949, Gallegos grew up in Minturn and attended Battle Mountain High School.

With the help of his brothers Bob, Glen, and John, and the support of his mother, Rosabell, he was able to grow the small, one-truck, one cement mixer company into one of the largest masonry outfits in the country. The Gallegos Corporation now has offices in Vail, Denver, Aspen and Sun Valley, Idaho. Started in 1970, this year marked the 40th year the Gallegos Corporation has been in business. He made his mark

give back in a very understated way. He went on to be one of the most dedicated philanthropists in the valley. He supported The Youth Foundation, Vail Valley Foundation, El Pomar Foundation and Roundup River Ranch, to name a few. There were very few times Gallegos would turn down a request for funding children--whether sending someone to a wrestling tournament or donating to little league.

Locals will remember Gerald always having a smile on his face, or making a generous donation. As one Gallegos employee said, “There are important people that know a lot of people in their life. Gerald not only knew thousands of people, he touched thousands of people. A true icon, he also never forgot where he came from and that God was in charge.” Memorial arrangements will be announced when finalized.

Big weekend for live music in Eagle County By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer

There’s too much live music and too little time this weekend. You’re not going to be able to catch it all, so it’s time to start making some decisions. We’ve got a handful of ticketed events kicking off tonight. The Radiators are playing back-to-back nights at Saltwater Cowboy in Avon; the YarmonyGrass Festival at Rancho Del Rio is nearly at capacity, and the Vail Soul Festival is offering a sound that we don’t usually hear in the valley. If you’re tight on cash, there are several free shows also happening tonight. Finnegan’s, Agave, the Westin and Main Street Grill all have bands coming in from out of town. Here’s a look at tonight’s local music scene… The Radiators at Saltwater Cowboy, Avon A classic jam band of the ’80s, ’90s and beyond is making a stop in Avon tonight.

By John LaConte Vail Mountaineer Editor The Eagle River Fire Protection District (ERFPD) yesterday notified employees of a workforce reduction in an effort to reduce costs. The reduction needs to occur because of “budget challenges due to reduced revenue from property taxes and development fees,� ERFPD said in a statement. Three senior administrative management positions have been eliminated: deputy chief of fire prevention, deputy chief of operations and assistant fire marshal. The three employees were offered severance packages and were thanked for their dedicated service to the District. ERFPD spokesperson John Hall said yesterday the annual savings from eliminating the three positions amounts to $360,000, although “an

unknown amount of money may be needed to accommodate duties that were covered by these people,� he said. Those duties mainly involve aspects of planning, says Hall, where the district worked with developers on matters of fire prevention. “There are other areas of the county that may be able to provide the same service, which we’re now looking into,� said Hall. The 43 operational positions at ERFPD will not be affected by the workforce reduction. “This is a hard thing to do, but necessary,� said Charlie Moore, fire chief and district manager. “We are preparing to meet the challenges of reduced revenue in 2012, and we need to make cuts now. Our primary duty is to keep our firefighters on the fire trucks responding to emergencies, without reducing our

capacity. These personnel changes allow us to do that.� ERFPD is considering several options to provide the necessary fire prevention planning for new developments in the district. “We’re going through the budget line by line, looking for ways to be more efficient,� said Moore. “That includes carefully prioritizing our equipment purchasing, bringing accounting duties in-house, amending training budgets to exclude travel, and freezing wages. Our commitment is to the constituents of the District. We have a responsibility to manage our money and provide the services our community needs.� Moore said that while revenue is expected to decrease, fire danger will not. The priority will continue to be preserving emergency operations.

Patty cake hits? Not at tonight’s demolition derby First of its kind event in Eagle County crashing into fairgrounds tonight By Mike Friend Mountaineer Staff Writer According to the official rules for the first demolition derby hitting the valley hard tonight, drivers must make an aggressive hit every two minutes – and soft, so-called “patty-cake� hits are grounds for disqualification. “Yahoo Buckaroo. Come out for a smashing good time,� said event coordinator Sherry Cusson, �That

You, Only Better

rule is there to keep’em hitting hard.� Cusson guarantees a great time for the entire family, saying it will be unlike anything the valley has seen before. “A lot of excitement. We have over 20 cars so far that are going to go at it,� said Cusson. The derby will be held at the Eagle County Fairgrounds arena building at 7 p.m. tonight. There will be one main event for each class. The classes range from compact to the truck class. The payouts are great. Payout breakdown, subject to change, will be the same for every class and will be as follows: 1st place, $1,500; 2nd place, $1,000; 3rd place, $500. Drivers will have a chance for $500 per class for being the first car to hit the flag. There will also be a best themed car contest, judged by the audience. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for kids under $12. Kids under 5 get in free.

Gary McCord: ‘He’s the longest driver of a golf ball in the history of the planet’ World Long Drive Champ hosts amazing demonstration at CCR By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer If you’re not familiar with the Country Club of the Rockies (CCR) in Arrowhead, the distance from the clubhouse to the 8th green is just more than a quarter mile. No one had thought to try and drive it, until yesterday. Jamie Sadlowski, the 2008 and 2009 World Long Drive champion, is suspected to be the longest hitter of the golf ball in the history of the sport. He donated his time and demonstrated his freakish talents before an amazed audience at CRR to raise funds for the Eagle County First Tee program. “It is going to blur the lines of your perception of reality as far as how far a golf ball can go,” professional golfer and legendary CBS Sports commentator Gary McCord, also a CCR member, said leading up to the demonstration. “I have been on the Tour since 1974. I know all those guys. I have never seen anything close to this.” “He’s the longest driver of a golf ball in the history of the MCCORD planet,” McCord added. Standing at 5 feet 11 inches and weighing in at 165 pounds, the 22-year-old is living proof that you don’t have to be a big guy to hit the ball a long way. “They will stop on the (PGA) Tour and watch this kid hit because they can’t believe it – he’s a skinny little twerp,” McCord said. Sadlowski’s ball speed after impact is 218 [See LONG DRIVE, page 23]

Author Mark Spragg visits The Bookworm ... Mark Spragg’s novel ‘An Unfinished Life’ was met with widespread acclaim. In ‘Bone Fire’ he returns to the unforgettable characters and landscape that have earned him such high praise. He visited The Bookworm in Edwards yesterday to talk about Bone Fire, a novel that centers on several characters living in Ishawooa, Wyoming, as they contend with car accidents, runaway children, strokes and Lou Gehrig’s disease, not to mention the motorcycle rallies and rodeos that flood the tiny local jail. As their lives become even more strained, hardship foments exceptional compassion and generosity, and those caught in their own sorrow alleviate the same in others, changing themselves as they do so. Spragg explains the books compliment one another, “in that both approach a region, a time and a population from different genres, perhaps together, in some strange symbiosis, they achieve, for a reader, something that neither could have accomplished alone.� His books are available at The Bookworm, online and at booksellers everywhere.

The event, scheduled for August 21-31, will be held in the Southern Hemisphere’s New Zealand. The Junior Worlds is the first time that snowboarding and freestyle are performing on the same stage in a World Championship event. The Teams were named in the spring, giving nominated athletes plenty of time to prepare for their Junior Worlds debut. In the snowboard division riders will take the stage in halfpipe, snowboardcross, parallel giant slalom and slalom, slopestyle and big air. Headlining the U.S. will be slopestyle extraordinaires Ryan Stassel and Caty O’Connor; 2010 Olympian Faye Gulini, a former ski and snowboard club Vail athlete

The Minturn Market, a Colorado adventure

Friday, August 20, 2010

Vail Mountaineer



By Chef Jordan Goncharoff

Enjoying the old Colorado charm of Minturn is fun in itself, but add two live music stages and over one hundred vendors and you have an unforgettable Saturday adventure! As summer is slowly starting to wind down take the time to enjoy this local outing for yourself. The Minturn Market is all about the Rocky Mountains with the booths featuring restaurants, farmers and artists from right here in Colorado. It is held every Saturday from 9am until 2pm, and is ending on September 4th. Grab a pulled pork sandwich and sweet tea from Minturn’s own Kirby Cosmos then sit and enjoy the live music from some of the valley’s most talented musicians. After you can explore through the winding back streets of Minturn, find a unique piece of jewelry, pick up some fresh local produce or snack on some fresh baked goods. Last week as I wondered the market I was excited to see Miller Farms selling the obscure vegetable, Kohlrabi. The first time I discovered kohlrabi I was bewildered with it’s odd appearance. I had to ask “What planet is this strange vegetable from?” I soon discovered that this traditional European vegetable was a popular staple on many dinner plates up until only a few decades ago and has recently been making a culinary comeback. Kohlrabi has a delicious flavor that is similar to broccoli. It is also versatile as you can eat it raw, sauté, roast, steam or even stir-fry it. My favorite way to serve kohlrabi is as a flavorful slaw and serve with beer poached brats! For more Rocky Mountain recipes and cooking tips visit

Kohlrabi Mountain Slaw Ingredients: 2 Heads Kohlrabi, Peeled and Shredded (Miller Farms) ½ Cup Green Onion (Morales Farms) 2 Cups Cabbage, Shredded (Miller Farms) ½ Cup Carrot, Shredded (Miller Farms) ½ Cup Red Onion, Thinly Sliced 1 Jalapeno Pepper, Seeds Removed and Diced (Borden Farms) 2 Tablespoons Chives (Morales Farms) Dressing: ¼ Cup Rice Vinegar ½ Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil 2 Tablespoons Agave 2 Tablespoons Dijon 1 Teaspoon Cumin 1 Teaspoon Hot Sauce Soy Sauce, To Taste Black Pepper, To Taste Lime Juice, To Taste

Consignment Furniture... Redefined

Directions: In one bowl mix together all the slaw ingredients. In another bowl mix together all the dressing ingredients. Combine all the ingredients, refrigerate and let sit for two hours. Enjoy with your favorite brats or on grilled chicken.

San Francisco Bay from the airport, said Lt. Bill Scott. The clerk called police shortly after 9 a.m. Thursday and said the business had received an anonymous phone call “making a threat specifically about Flight 24,” Scott said. Schadler said officials acted quickly and the Transportation Security Administration ordered the plane away from the main terminal. The FBI later determined that the telephoned threat wasn’t credible, but in the wake of the 9/11 attacks and a series of airline scares in the past year, the incident still rattled nerves as it played out live on national TV. Police were investigating who called in the hijacking threat and what their motivation might have been. Although passengers described the scene aboard the Boeing 767 as calm, a witness said a man and a woman sitting in the back row attracted suspicion and were taken off in handcuffs. But they were quickly released and allowed to rebook their flights. The couple confirmed to an Associated Press reporter that they were the ones who had been removed from the plane but declined to identify themselves. Police eventually entered through the back door and arrested the two passengers. Others on board were taken off the plane six at a time and put on a buses. San Francisco Police Department officers used security wands to screened them and their carry-on luggage. “The two passengers were taken off the plane sepa-

rately, but we cannot discuss the specifics why,” said FBI spokesman Joseph Schadler.

Obama a Muslim? Rumors gaining steam

Blame it on the media, or on human nature. All presidents deal with image problems — that they’re too weak or too belligerent, too far left or far right. But Obama also faces questions over documented facts, in part because some people identify more with the rumormongers than the debunkers. “Trust and distrust — that explains almost all of it,” says Nicholas DiFonzo, professor of psychology at the Rochester Institute of Technology and an expert on The AP photograph rumor and gossip research. that circulated the In“We are in such a highly ternet, complicating polarized political environ- Obama’s image probment. Our country is sorting lems. itself into more closely knit, opposing factions each year” — factions, DiFonzo suggests, that in turn become “echo chambers” for factoids

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fact at all. Nearly one in five people, or 18 percent, said they think Obama is Muslim, up from the 11 percent who said so in March 2009, according to a poll released Thursday. The proportion who correctly say he is a Christian is just 34 percent, down from 48 percent in March of last year. Confusion about Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s religion was common, and sometimes encouraged, during the 2008 campaign. An Associated Press photograph that circulated on the Internet, and was posted on The Drudge Report, showed Obama dressed in traditional local garments â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a white turban and a wraparound white robe â&#x20AC;&#x201D; during a visit to Kenya in 2006. Democratic rival Hillary Rodham Clinton may have contributed through her response to a question, during a â&#x20AC;&#x153;60 Minutesâ&#x20AC;? interview, about whether he was a Muslim. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing to base that on,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As far as I know.â&#x20AC;?

Ariz. fugitives caught

Authorities captured an Arizona prison escapee and an alleged accomplice who have been on the run since last month. Details were sketchy and Arizona authorities scheduled a news briefing late Thursday night to discuss the capture of John McCluskey and Casslyn Welch, who also is the inmateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cousin. A report released yesterday by Arizona officials outlined a series of embarrassing security breakdowns that allowed three violent criminals to escape from a prison last month, including a badly defective alarm system and an unstaffed perimeter post. An outside dormitory door that had been propped open with a rock also allowed John McCluskey, Tracy Province and Daniel Renwick to flee from the privately operated prison in Kingman on July 30, setting off a massive multistate search, the report said. The alarms went off so often that prison personnel often just ignored them, Arizona Department of Corrections Director Charles Ryan said at a news conference held to discuss the report. The alarm system hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been properly maintained for almost two years, Ryan said. The system doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t produce an audible warning when security is breached, and visible alerts often go unnoticed by staff who are busy answering phones and monitoring gates, the report said. The report also said prison staff arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t properly trained and have a high turnover rate. Prison warden Lori Leider, who resigned following the escape, told the security review team that 80 percent of staff is new or newly promoted.

ous prescription drugs but that she told him she was not an addict. Birkhead said he was so concerned about her excessive use of medications that he once hid her Methadone only to be scolded by Howard K. Stern, who said she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live without it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She would say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in pain. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a drug addict,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? he recalled. When he suggested she was taking too many drugs, she replied, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a high tolerance because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in pain,â&#x20AC;? he said. Her neighbor was psychiatrist Dr. Khristine Eroshevich, Howard K. Stern, the late modelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyerboyfriend, have pleaded not guilty to conspiring to unlawfully provide excessive drugs to Smith, prescribing to an addict and obtaining false prescriptions involving the use of fake names. They are not charged with causing her overdose death in 2007. He said Stern resented his presence in the house and tried to interfere with the relationship. He also said he saw Stern giving Smith medicine when she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel well.

BP accused of withholding â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;criticalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; spill data

The company that owned the oil rig that exploded in the Gulf of Mexico is accusing BP of withholding critical evidence needed to investigate the cause of the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history, according to a confidential document obtained by The Associated Press. BP called the claims a publicity stunt. The new complaint by Transocean follows similar complaints by U.S. lawmakers about difficulties obtaining necessary information from BP in their investigations. In a sternly worded letter to BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorneys, Transocean said the oil giant has in its sole possession information key to identifying the cause â&#x20AC;&#x153;of the tragic loss of eleven lives and the pollution in the Gulf of Mexico.â&#x20AC;? BP and Transocean appear likely to face off in court over how much each should pay out for the tragedy. Transocean owned the Deepwater Horizon, the rig that exploded and sank, killing 11 workers and unleashing millions of gallons of oil. BP was the operator and majority owner of the well. BP spokeswoman Elizabeth Ashford said Transoceanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accusations were misleading and misguided. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have been at the forefront of cooperating with various investigations commissioned by the U. S. government and others into the causes of the Deepwater Horizon tragedy,â&#x20AC;? Ashford said.

Colorado saw 28 cases in June and July, about four times the usual number. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would anticipate that we will be seeing more illnesses reported likely as a result of this outbreak,â&#x20AC;? said Braden. The recall of 380 million eggs from Iowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wright County Egg is one of the largest shell egg recalls in recent history. Much of the investigation so far has been centered on restaurants in California, Colorado, Minnesota and North Carolina. The eggs were distributed around the country and packaged under the names Lucerne, Albertson, Mountain Dairy, Ralphâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Boomsmaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Sunshine, Hillandale, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund, Dutch Farms and Kemp.

A spinal cord for a spinal cord?

A Saudi judge has asked several hospitals in the country whether they could damage a manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spinal cord as punishment after he was convicted of attacking another man with a cleaver and paralyzing him, the brother of the victim said Thursday. Abdul-Aziz al-Mutairi, 22, was left paralyzed and subsequently lost a foot after a fight more than two years ago. He asked a judge in northwestern Tabuk province to impose an equivalent punishment on his attacker under Islamic law, his brother Khaled al-Mutairi told The Associated Press by telephone from there. He said one of the hospitals, located in Tabuk, responded that it is possible to damage the spinal cord, but it added that the operation would have to be done at another more specialized facility. Saudi newspapers reported that a second hospital in the capital Riyadh

Kraft working to protect chocolate from age old foe

Kraft Foods is reaching out to industry and academic partners to find a packaging technology that will protect chocolate bars from melting. Working through innovation service provider NineSigma, the US food giant is inviting proposals that will minimise melting when the temperature ranges from 24 to 40oC. So far Kraft said existing packaging technology is both too expensive and excessively bulky. And yet there is significant market potential for a packaging innovation able to make chocolate resistant to heat. Over summer months and in warmer climates the heat can turn chocolate into a sticky mess, both before purchase at the storage and distribution stage and again once the product has left the shelves.

Palin says it isn’t about picking winners. “Regardless of whether the many candidates I’ve had the honor of endorsing win or lose this time around, I support them because they boldly shake things up in their primary races,” she said in a Facebook message.

US envoy says billions needed for Pakistan

A top U.S. envoy says “many billions” of dollars will be needed to rebuild Pakistan after massive flooding. Richard Holbrooke, the U.S. special representative for Pakistan and Afghanistan, told the Asia Society that the United States was the first and largest contributor, and he challenged other countries, especially Pakistan’s close ally China, to “step up to the plate.” He spoke ahead of a high-level meeting of the U.N.

Pitkin County sees heavy rains, mudslides

A severe thunder storm warning was issued last night by the National Weather Service in Denver for Central Colorado. Heavy rains across Colorado are causing flooding and mud slides in some areas. Pitkin County authorities are advising against travel on Colorado 133 because of rains and mud slides. The road is closed at Redstone. A mud slide has also closed Highway 82 west of Carbondale. The Pitkin County sheriff’s office says no cars were caught in the mud slides. The National Weather Service says about an inch of rain per hour has fallen in southwest Colorado. A flash flood warning issued for parts of San Miguel and Ouray counties expired Thursday night. Jennifer Dinsmore of San Miguel County says state plows are clearing mud and debris off Highway 145 near Norwood. Prowers County in southeast Colorado has received from 1 to 2 inches of rain per hour.

Atwal ties course record with 61 Arjun Atwal of India tied a tournament record with a 61 and took a two-stroke lead at the Wyndham Championship on Thursday. Atwal matched Carl Petterssonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2-year-old mark at the par-70 Sedgefield Country Club. He was 9 under through the first round of the U.S. PGA Tourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final event before the playoffs. Brandt Snedeker, who won this event in 2007, shot a 63. John Rollins, Kevin Streelman, Lucas Glover, Boo Weekley, David Toms and Jeev Milkha Singh were at 64, and six players shot 65s during an occasionally wet day that left the greens soft and the leaderboard crowded at Sedgefield. It was an encouraging start for Atwal, who lost his tour card last month and had to play his way into this event in a Monday qualifier across town at Forest Oaks Country Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;where this tournament was held from 1977-2007. He played that course twice before, finishing sixth in 2004, and wound up shooting a 67 to share first place with three other qualifiers. No Monday qualifier has won a tournament since Fred Wadsworth did it at the 1986 Southern Open.

Tiger Woods commits to Barclays Tiger Woods has won the FedEx Cup every year he has been healthy enough to play it. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got more of an uphill battle this year. Woods on Thursday officially entered The Barclays, which starts Aug. 26. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first of four playoff events that conclude with the Tour Championship and a $10 million prize to the winner of the yearlong FedEx Cup competition. Woods is No. 108 in the standings, and he is likely to go further down the list depending on what happens this week at the Wyndham Championship. Only the top 125 players are eligible for The Barclays, which will be played at Ridgewood Country Club. Woods did not play Ridgewood the last time the tournament was held there in 2008. He missed the FedEx Cup playoffs that year while recovering from knee sur-

gery, the only time he did not claim the $10 million prize since the series began in 2007. After The Barclays, only the top 100 are eligible for the second round, the Deutsche Bank Championship outside Boston, which ends on Labor Day. That will be the final event before U.S. Ryder Cup captain Corey Pavin announces his four wild-card picks. Woods has said he wants to play, and Pavin said that Woods is â&#x20AC;&#x153;high on my list.â&#x20AC;? Players are grouped at The Barclays based on their FedEx Cup standings, and Pavin is currently at No. 107. However, he said last week he is unlikely to play Ridgewood because of a summer schedule of four majors (three on the Champions Tour) in a five-week stretch.

Euphoria+Orchestra) relocated to Fort Collins, CO in August 2008 and has made a splash on the Colorado music scene with a relentless tour schedule and a live show that leaves feet tired and hearts and minds happy. The band is known for their diverse sound and eclectic repertoire, covering a number of traditional and progressive sounds ranging from (but not limited to) reggae, dub, afrobeat and samba to ska, highlife, funk and jazz. The show is free and starts at 5 p.m.

The show starts at 10 p.m. and is free.

Based out of the Campbell Club Student Cooperative, in Eugene Oregon, the Alder Street All Stars came together in late 2006 to play a fundraiser aimed at helping a member of their community facing deportation. Received well by the audience and having a good time playing together, the band kept it up. Radical politics, outlaw culture, and a passion for life are at the core of their work. The All Stars have been noted for their unique brand of honky tonk music which draws on a wide range of influences stemming from the diversity of the members backgrounds. Also from Oregon, the Harmed Brothers were the proud seed of small town Missouri singer/songwriter Donnie Vietti and Grove locals Joe Cole and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Reverendâ&#x20AC;? Billy Reed. Soon after its conception, Vietti and his raw, passionate tales of love, heartbreak, friendship, small town living and big city ambition spread to the town of Murphy, North Carolina, and found a place alongside longtime friends and brothers Ben and Zach Kilmer. The show is free and starts at 10 p.m.

LONG DRIVE CHAMP HOSTS DEMO AT CCR miles per hour – Tiger Woods’ is about 179. Some of the faster swing speeds on the Tour are 133 miles per hour – Sadlowski’s is 152. Sadlowski’s background is in hockey, not unlike that of the world’s most popular fictional long ball hitter Happy Gilmore. He’s been working on his short game and hopes to become more competitive as a complete golfer. At this point, he’s about a scratch out on the course. “The only problem playing with him – and it’s a big problem – if the hole is 425 and under, we’ve got to sit on the tee and wait until the other players get off the green,” McCord said. Going for the Green Sadlowski began the demonstration with a nice, easy 49-degree pitching wedge, which he knocked about 180 yards towards Route 6. “His technique is absolutely perfect. His swing is much longer than John Daly’s, and he creates a lot more club head speed,” McCord said. The afternoon headwind that proceeded yesterday’s downpour picked up just as Sadlowski took his six-iron out of the bag, which he hit 297 yards. The demonstration took a goofy, yet equally unbelievable turn when Sadlowski pulled out a standard, 35-inch putter. “He’s the best long putter I’ve ever seen,” McCord said just before Sadlowski teed the ball up and smacked it 296 yards to the north – with the putter. Another item in Sadlowski’s bag of tricks is teeing the ball up about 2 feet

off the ground and hitting it as high as possible. Most everyone in the audience lost sight of the ball, which shot up like a rocket, but the hangtime was determined to be close to 13 seconds. No word from Nasa on how high it flew. The weather turned pretty nasty by the time Sadlowski pulled out the big dog – a specially reinforced driver made by Adams Golf. With his high-speed swing, traditional store-bought drivers only last about 10 to 15 swings before the face crushes in, Sadlowski said. Ultimately, the kid was just 4 or 5 yards short of the 8th green, 416 yards away. The wind and raindrops undoubtedly had an adverse effect on the ball’s flight. How does he do it? Most of the long drive guys have about 50 pounds of muscles mass; Sadlowski only has 30, CCR Head Golf Professional Tom Apple said. He somehow learned to use about 70 to 80 percent of his muscle mass, whereas other guys are using 50 percent. “I can’t say he’s a freak of nature because his mechanics are unbelievable,” Apple said. “His twitch muscles, speed and length combined with really good mechanics make him the longest there’s ever been.” Apple, a long-time veteran of the sport, said he’s never seen anything like yesterday’s demonstration. “It’s mindboggling how hard and far he can hit a golf ball,” Apple said. “It was one of the neatest golf spectacles we ever had in the valley.”

JUNIOR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS perspective.” “We’re looking forward to hosting some of the world’s best at Snow Park and Cardrona Alpine Resort,” said Palmer. “Both venues have created world-class facilities for this competition, so it should be a great show. We’re thrilled that the U.S. is sending so many of its top, up-and-coming freestyle and snowboard athletes to compete in New Zealand in the FIS Junior Worlds.” The U.S. will be represented by 44 junior athletes in the 10 day event. Cardrona and Snow Park will host nine events between the two resorts, showcasing the top junior athletes from around the world in snowboarding and freestyle. “Being able to do the first Junior Worlds slopestyle is really exciting,” said Stassel.

Reigning World Long Drive Champion Jamie Sadlowski poses for a photo yesterday during a demonstration at Country Club of the Rockies in Edwards. Avery Cunliffe photo.


“Snow Park’s park is sick and Cardrona’s pipe is fun,” said Mikaela Casey. “New Zealand alltogether is exhilarating!” On the freestyle side, the athletes will be competing in slopestyle, ski cross and halfpipe. Looking to make some noise down under are X Games gold medalist in slopestyle Bobby Brown, World Cup ski halfpipe regular Walter Wood and slopestyle Junior Olympian Jamie Crane-Mauzy. Kyle Smaine is a double threat competing in both ski cross and halfpipe, as well as Devin Logan and Blake Peterson competing in halfpipe and slopestyle. “Bringing freestyle and snowboarding together at Junior Worlds will be a great opportunity to present the two sports at a world stage as well as show how similar

they are,” said Wood. “My goals are to enjoy the experience and to compete at my best level. I’m planning on sticking my run and having a great time doing so!” The schedule is packed with competition kicking off on the 21st with the snowboard slopestlye and ending with the snowboard big air contest on the 31st. Cardona is set to host five events including snowboardcross, snowboard and freestyle halfpipe, ski cross and big air. Snow Park is scheduled to hold four events including snowboard and freestyle slopestyle and parallel giant slalom and slalom.
