A man of many nations, Ernst Larese now officially American Swiss Hot Dog shop owner, 79, celebrates citizenship By John LaConte Vail Mountaineer Editor

Ernst Larese sees the world from his shop. He’s Italian born, fought for the French Foreign Legion in Algeria and Morocco, and is the founder of the Vail Valley Swiss Hot Dog shop. While many people mix up Austrian and Australian in speech, few can say they are actually from both places. Laresse grew up in Austria and lived in Australia for more than 10 years. The man is a multi-national in the truest sense of the term ... Until now. On August 12, Larese officially became a citizen of the United States. His story, in his words, is a remarkable one. It starts in 1931 in a little mountain town called Bolzano, in Italy. Enter world war II, Larese and his family are moved to Salzburg, Austria, which was not fairing well in the war. Schools were demolished and food was scarce. Larese nearly died when he was just 9 years old while climbing over an iron fence to steal apples: he slipped and was pierced through his neck by the fence post. He stuck his fingers in the wound and ran to a nearby hospital that wouldn’t take him, so he ran to another hospital where they finally treated him. The doctors couldn’t have known at the time that by saving this boy’s life, they were also ensuring that the singular and amazing taste of the world famous Swiss Hot Dog would one day make it to America. Larese was sent away to live on a farm and work for food as Europe slowly recovered from the onslaught of WWII. There he met a French POW who was also made to work there for food and shelter, his name was Alexan-

Tonight only! Sheriff facing a new challenger Homemade pappardelle NEWS

How do Hoy, Van Beek differ? By Mike Friend Mountaineer Staff Writer

Sheriff Joe Hoy defeated one challenger in the August primary election, and now he faces another at the November general election in Independent party candidate James Van Beek. Both sheriff candidates share the same basic belief that the position is there to fight crime and serve the public. But how do the two think they are different? After lengthy conversations with both the incumbent Sheriff Joe Hoy and sheriff hopeful James Van Beek, only one defining difference became apparent -- leadership style. “I think I will bring a much more synergistic style leadership,� said Van Beek, “I want to empower the deputies and the other staff to make decisions when they are in the field using their best judgment based on the circumstance, versus having a hard and fast rule as the current administration uses.� Van Beek says that his leadership style focuses on being very accessible to the public and he will bring his

world experience in law enforcement to the county. “I hear the same thing over and over again. That people feel very disconnected to the current sheriff. He’s just inaccessible. Even now, I’m in another town and I can be reached. I’m going to always be accessible to the public,� said Van Beek who was calling from Afghanistan at 5 a.m. “We were waiting to move past the Primary election and now I plan to hit the community hard,� said Van Beek who has family and friends campaigning at local farmers markets and knocking on doors till he arrives from his latest overseas mission. “The bottom line is, I plan to be very engaged at all levels in the community, where Hoy is not.� Sheriff Hoy says he’s very available. “I have served this community for over 20 years, eight of which were served as the sheriff,� said the incumbent. “I am 100 percent available to anyone that needs to reach me. I am at my desk almost everyday with the exception of holidays and even then sometimes I’ve had to answer a call then. Even when I’m at home I’ve taken the time to answers questions and listen to concerns from citizens.�

For the past five years Patrick Orton has been taking his photography to a new level across the country and was recently published twice on the cover of Idaho Magazine. From the high altitude of the Rockies to the shores of Hawaii, Orton shoots outdoor adventures and extreme pics. “On most occasions I put myself in the same situations as you see in the shots. I like to live on both sides of the lens,� said the Sandpoint, Idaho, native who moved to the Valley four years ago. “I moved here for photography and the outdoor adventure lifestyle. Colorado has a lot of people in my age group that enjoy the outdoor lifestyle I’ve grown accustomed to.� He chose photography to be able to catch unique moments in stunning locations.  When Orton is not behind the lens, he is a server for the Cordillera Country Club, and often he can be found on the slopes of Vail and the sheer cliffs of Rifle. Orton lives in Eagle with his roommate Elliott, who is also an outdoor enthusiast and sometimes finds himself in Orton’s extreme shots. Orton’s photography features the scenic landscapes of the Valley and can be found online at

Red Cliff artist’s studio tour starts today By Mike Friend Mountaineer Staff Writer Unique art in a unique environment – that’s what you’ll get when you travel over Battle Mountain Pass and drop down into the quaint town of Red Cliff. In an open house-style tour, you can view the art and works of locals who reside in the small mountain town in the 13th Annual Red Cliff Art Studio Tour. With towering red cliffs — from which the town derives its name — the scenic area and high altitude bridge that hovers over Red Cliff can be viewed as a work of art by its own right. This year’s tour includes the talents of over 14 local Red Cliff artists: masters of the paintbrush, the pottery wheel, and… snowboards? You may be asking yourself how a board maker’s talents got in the mix with oil and watercolorists. The answer is simple — the boards and skis are the pallets for the artwork. Kendall Cobb is known for using other local artist’s prints for the topsheets on his boards and skis. Cobb’s studio and a handful of other artist’s studios

will be located at the Red Cliff School. This year’s guest artist from Vail, Ann Loper, will display her exquisite formations of pottery. A vibrant watercolorist and 25-year resident of Red Cliff, Sydney Summers — who now resides in Denver — will also be featuring her work. “She comes back each year,” said Barb Bomier, one of the original three artists who began the decade-old art tour, “She’s grand-mothered in, I guess.” Bomier’s oil paintings can be viewed at her studio at 159 Monument St. Two couples’ works will be displayed at their home studios. Oil painter Joan Norris and her husband, photographer Jim Lamont, can be found at 654 Spruce St. The other duo can be found at 524 Water St., featuring the sculptures of Bob Will and the oil paintings of Linn Janson-Will. “This year we have the most artists than we’ve ever had. It’s completely free and the public has the chance to buy direct from the artist,” said Bomier. “The works are all so different and unique — everyone should stop by each of the four locations for the tour. It will be a lot of fun.”

What’s Better than Bacon? By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer


You Missed It! August Deal of the Month Estate 3.2 cu. ft. top-load washer tXBTIDZDMFT tTQJODZDMFT  &5882



So, what is Better than Bacon? Find out tonight at Moe’s in Eagle. The funky four-piece consists of an electric guitar, acoustic guitar, bass and drums. “Our music is funky, but it’s rock ‘n’ roll, too. Our tagline is ‘funky folk ‘n’ roll with old soul.’ But, we also play some Bossa Nova, ChaCha and some reggae.” The band agrees that there isn’t much that’s better than bacon, except, of course, having a name that people will remember. Collectively, they’re four friends who’ve played in parts of Europe and across the United States, from Carnegie Hall to the Continental Divide, and from the shores of Lake Superior down to the voodoo bayous of the Southern Swamplands. Better than Bacon is relatively new to the valley, but they seem to have taken a liking to Vail, as several other Front Range bands have in the past – like Frogs

Gone Fishin’. They played a gig at Saltwater Cowboy last week and Main Street Grill last night. They’ll be at Moe’s in Eagle today. “It’s a rock ‘n’ roll band. Our songs have really catchy hooks in them; they’re really danceable. There are guitars, a solid rhythm section. The drummer has a beep bop background, so it’s like funk with a really cool jazz thing.” The band has only been together for a little more than four months, but they’ve already cranked out close to 40 originals, 25 of which they regularly play at their live shows. You might also hear a cover or two from Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, The Beatles, and Allman Brothers. Sometimes the band will jam out, other times they’ll play shorter, more concise tunes. It’s all about what the audience wants. Last night, Lynne at Main Street Grill told them to just have fun, which is on the docket again tonight at Moe’s. The group is hoping to get in the studio this fall to record their first album. Check them out tonight (outside, weather permitting) at Moe’s Original BBQ in Eagle. The show is free and goes from 7 to 10 p.m.

Over 20 teams showed up for the event to help raise money for the Vail Valley Charitable Fund. Organizer Jody Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connell, Business Development Manager of Blue Sky Restoration Contractors, was thrilled with the support from the community. After 4 hours of fishing, the teams were picked up by the Turtle Tubing Bus and brought back to the Minturn Saloon. With live music, door prizes and dinner it was a great end to the day for both fisherman and anyone else interested in donating by just buying dinner.

Kloser joins moguls team Down Under Switching from their routine in Chile, U.S. freestyle team trains at Perisher After several years of going to Chile, the U.S. Moguls Ski Team, which includes last year’s rookie of the year and Vail local Heidi Kloser, switched it up this summer, heading down under for a three-week camp at Perisher in Australia. Kloser joined 2010 gold medalist Hannah Kearney, 2010 bronze medalist Bryon Wilson, Olympians Heather McPhie and Patrick Deneen.

 “We’ve been going to Chile for the last 10 years,” said Head Moguls Coach Scott Rawles. “It’s been great training down there, but we just felt like Perisher was a good change of pace and this was a good year to do it. There will be some other international teams there, so it will be a completely different dynamic then we’ve normally done.”

 The athletes and coaches flew to the Southern Hemisphere on August 2. After a few days to adjust to the 18-hour time difference, the Team buckled their boots and clicked into their skis on August 5. During the 13 days of the on-snow section of the block, athletes focused on individual tasks including tricks and regaining feel for the snow and bumps. “It was the first on-snow training camp since the competitive season ended, so I was working on getting reacquainted with the feel of my skis,” said Kearney. “I also hiked the bottom jump of the course for three days to avoid the lift lines and work on the tricks and form I had been practicing on the water ramps this summer.”

 “My main focus at this camp was my jumping,” said McPhie. “I have been throwing D-spins and back fulls, as I plan on competing at least one of them this season.”

 The days were regimented with athletes waking up at 6:15 a.m. for a 20 minutes warm-up jog. Following the jog, they returned to their condos made breakfast and packed a lunch for the hill, all by 8:00 a.m. The Team then had an hour to arrive at the lodge, warm-up and be ready to start on-snow training for two and half hours at 9:30 a.m. Without wasting time, athletes gathered their gear and headed back to town, eating lunch on the way down from the top of the mountain, completing the morning segment of training.

 Athletes arrived home around 1:30 p.m., with a hour and half of free time before heading to the gym at 3:00 p.m. Upon arrival the crew stretched and warmed-up for their two hour workout ending at 5:30 p.m. The group would return home for dinner and a team stretch, ending the day with video analysis at 8:00 p.m., before hitting the pillow to wake-up and do it all over again.

 With athletes giving it their all and training days jam packed, coaches and athletes went for a different direction on their days-off, occupying their time experiencing what Australia has to offer.

Heidi Kloser will be joining gold medalist Hannah Kearney and other Olympians in Perisher rather then their typical training in Chili. “It been great training down there,” Head Moguls Coach Scott Rawles said. AP Photo.

For many of the athletes, this was their first trip to Australia.

 “The days off have been pretty busy,” said McPhie. “One day we went and fed kangaroos, which was absolutely incredible.”

 U.S. Ski Team Strength and Conditioning Coordinator and Australian native Alex Moore joined the gang for the camp. While with the Team, Moore led them through daily workouts and introduced the group to some Australian specialties. Moore will also head a four day conditioning block in Sydney, wrapping up the three weeklong camp.

 “It was great to have our Australian strength and conditioning coach Alex with us to serve as our culture and activity guide,” said Kearney. “He made sure we didn’t miss out on the Australian specialties like Milo, meat pies and Tim Tams in the grocery store. He also introduced us to rugby and Australian football rules. [See KLOSER, page 21]

men hunting them across the West — until yesterday, when an alert forest ranger’s tip led police right to John McCluskey and Casslyn Welch. The self-styled “Bonnie and Clyde” offered little resistance. As the nation kept a look out for them, the couple somehow slipped back into Arizona, hiding at a campground across the state from the prison where McCluskey escaped, police say, with help from Welch — his cousin and fiancee. When a SWAT team descended on the campsite at dusk, Welch reached for a weapon but dropped it when she realized she was outgunned, police said. McCluskey told officers that he regretted not shooting them with the gun he had in a nearby tent. The capture brought an end to a manhunt that began July 30 when McCluskey and two murderers broke out of a medium-security prison in Kingman, 185 miles northwest of Phoenix. Authorities say Welch threw a set of wire cutters onto prison grounds, allowing them to cut open a fence. One inmate was caught after a shootout in Colorado. The other was nabbed in a small Wyoming town after he was spotted at a church.

Colo. fines Tiny Town $30,500 for train accident

State officials have fined a children’s amusement park west of Denver $30,500 for the derailment of a miniature train that injured 15 people. The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment says the volunteer engineer at Tiny Town was driving as much as five times the normal speed limit when the train went off the track. Witnesses say the locomotive entered a curve going between 12 and 17 mph while the normal speed limit is 3 to 4 mph. State officials say the accident was due to operator error and contributing factors were inadequate training and lack of labels on the controls. The engineer told investigators he accelerated when he meant to hit the brakes. The adults and children injured mostly had bumps and bruises, but three people were hospitalized.

New guidelines could rule out many oil claims

The latest guidelines for BP’s $20 billion victims compensation fund say the nearer you are geographically to the oil spill and the more closely you depend on the Gulf of Mexico’s natural resources, the better chance you have of getting a share of the money.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Also, a second set of rules expected this fall will require that businesses and individuals seeking compensation for long-term losses give up their right to sue BP and other spill-related companies â&#x20AC;&#x201D; something that could save the oil giant billions. The new rules for the claims process were released yesterday by Washington lawyer Kenneth Feinberg, who was picked by President Barack Obama to run the fund and previously oversaw claims for 9/11 victims. Beginning Monday, the claims will be handled by Feinberg rather than BP, which is still footing the entire $20 billion bill. Who gets paid and who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t will depend largely on how much proof there is that losses were caused by the spill and not by something else, such as the recession. Feinbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guidelines say key factors include a claimantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s geographic proximity to the disaster and how much the business or property is linked to â&#x20AC;&#x153;injured natural resources.â&#x20AC;?

On vacation, Obama tends to summer reading list

In the first full day of a Marthaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vineyard, Mass., vacation, President Barack Obama set aside some of the cares of office Friday to work on his familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer reading list. At a bookstore in this upscale New England resort, Obama chose for his daughters a fiction classic set in the Jim Crow South â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and for himself a sprawling summer epic about the downfall of a family that moves from the Midwest to Washington. Parallels anyone? Obama â&#x20AC;&#x201D; wearing a polo shirt and ball cap â&#x20AC;&#x201D; emerged from the Bunch of Grapes bookstore carrying a brown paper bag and preceded by Sasha, 9, and Malia, 12, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rejoined the family after her first summer camp. Inside the bag was â&#x20AC;&#x153;Freedomâ&#x20AC;? by Jonathan Franzen, aides reported. The novel portrays a family of urban homesteaders in St. Paul, Minn., who decamp to the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not on sale yet, but the store gave him an advance copy. The president also purchased â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tinkersâ&#x20AC;? by Paul Harding and â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Few Correctionsâ&#x20AC;? by Brad Leithauser, the bookstore said. For the girls, the president bought two volumes: â&#x20AC;&#x153;To Kill a Mockingbirdâ&#x20AC;? by Harper Lee and â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Red Ponyâ&#x20AC;? by John Steinbeck, a cashier said. Leeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1960 novel, a staple in English classrooms, centers on a rape trial in small-town Alabama and a white lawyer who defends a black man accused of the crime. A lesson in tolerance and integrity, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen through the

eyes of the lawyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 6-year-old daughter. The bookstore visit set the tone for the Obamasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 10day sojourn on Marthaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vineyard: learned, laid-back and family oriented.

NYC imamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goodwill tour comes amid mosque furor

The furor over the planned mosque and Islamic center near ground zero has put Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf in a curious position: At the same time he is being vilified in the U.S. for spearheading the project, he is traveling the Mideast on a State Department mission as a symbol of American religious freedom. Some of the imamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s American critics said they fear he is using the taxpayer-funded trip to raise money and rally support in the Muslim world for the mosque. At his first event yesterday in the Persian Gulf state of Bahrain, Rauf refused to discuss the uproar over plans for the community center two blocks from the World Trade Center site. State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley has said Rauf understands that he cannot solicit funds for the project on his 15-day tour. The $100 million, 13-story project is modeled after the YMCA and Jewish Community Center. Rauf and his wife, Daisy Khan, a co-leader of the project, have a long record of interfaith outreach and insist the center will promote moderate Islam.

Paul has randy donor

Republican Rand Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign for Senate in conservative Kentucky wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say yesterday whether it will return money from a donor who runs an adult website featuring photos of lingerie-clad and nude women. Federal Election Commission records show that Cyan Banister, who founded California-based Zivity. com with her husband, contributed $4,800 to Paul earlier this year. Banister told The Associated Press that she sees Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s limited government views as appealing, and said she likes his â&#x20AC;&#x153;strong values that resonate with mine.â&#x20AC;? Paul is relying on solid support from conservative voters in his hotly contested race against Democrat Jack Conway. Zivity.comâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s photos show women posing in littleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or nothingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and are described by the website as works of art. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign issued a statement saying the Republican candidateâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a father of three boys and husband of a church deaconâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;condemns pornography and [See UPDATE, page 20]

The campaign said it “cannot be expected to run background checks on all 25,000 donors who share his stances on issues like balanced budgets, reduced federal spending, opposition to `Obamacare’ and the reckless behavior in Washington.” The San Francisco-based adult social network website started by Banister and her husband, Scott, serves up racy photos of women for $12-a-month subscribers.

Colorado is considering a first-in-the-nation compromise on a federal immigration program after several groups complained that the initiative to catch illegal immigrants by using fingerprints could lead to racial profiling and intimidate crime victims. Gov. Bill Ritter’s office confirmed yesterday they are negotiating an agreement with the federal government that would make Colorado the first of 29 states to modify the rapidly expanding Secure Communities program. Critics of the program have said it lacks oversight and it’s unclear how Immigration and Customs and Enforcement, which runs the program, intends to meet its goal of focusing on the most dangerous criminals. Michael Shea, Ritter’s deputy counsel, said in an e-mail to the Colorado Bar Association last month that the proposed agreement “would be unique to Colorado, and it would provide a mechanism for determining how the program is working.” The Associated Press obtained the e-mail through an open records request that also showed that several groups and lawmakers have urged Ritter in the last two months not to proceed with the program, or to make changes to it if he does. ICE spokesman Carl Rusnok said hundreds of jurisdictions in 29 states have implemented the program so far and that none have requested modifications.

Ricky Martin’s autobiography due in November

Ricky Martin has picked an appropriate title for his autobiography: “Me.” The Puerto Rican singer is set to release his memoir on Nov. 2. It will also be released in Spanish the same day. That edition will be titled “Yo,” which is Spanish for “I’’ and “me.” Martin has said that preparing to write the book was one of the reasons he decided to reveal earlier this year that he is gay. Martin said in a statement Thursday that the project led him to extract memories that he had erased from his mind. He says the book was not easy but allowed for an “incredible spiritual journey.” —Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve bought some cool retro ski gear and ski outfits. The best deal I ever got was probably a set of muffin pans for ten cents. Really cheap, huh?â&#x20AC;? Matt Earle with the Minturn School District said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember back in high school I got a CD player and some good CDs.â&#x20AC;? Earle said several people around the community donate their time and spend several weeks sorting the second hand merchandise out so that it can be rummaged through with ease. While everyone seems to find what they are looking for at the rummage sale, gossip around Minturn on the most bizarre object found often brings more talk than the great deals one can find.

later, the sale benefits the Eagle Valley Community Fund.

The sale will feature common household items to rare oddities such as a fabled 3-foot tall ceramic pig. Several locals commented on a shower curtain with scantily clad ladies on it that has popped up the last few years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can be pretty overwhelming to be honest. That is how much stuff they have there,â&#x20AC;? said Penny Bumgarner of Minturn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let my husband go to the sale because he will come home with too much stuff, and I am the one who ends up donating it all back to them the next year because I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the clutter.â&#x20AC;?

Clemens indicted for lying to Congress Pettitte’s sworn statement was crucial to indictment a six-count federal indictment alleges that Roger Clemens, one of the most dominant pitchers ever, obstructed a congressional inquiry with 15 different statements made under oath. Included were denials that he had ever used steroids or human growth hormone. As he did when he testified to a House committee in 2008, the seven-time Cy Young winner denied using the substances via Twitter and said he will fight to clear his name. “I never took HGH or Steroids. And I did not lie to Congress,” Clemens Tweeted. “I look forward to challenging the Governments accusations, and hope people will keep an open mind until trial. I appreciate all the support I have been getting. I am happy to finally have my day in court.” Andy Pettitte’s sworn statement that Roger Clemens admitted using human growth hormone was a critical factor in a federal grand jury’s decision to indict Clemens. Pettitte revealed he used HGH that was provided by McNamee to expedite his recovery from an injury. Pettitte said in his deposition that his former teammate, Clemens, also acknowledged using HGH. When he appeared before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform in February 2008, Clemens said Pettitte had “misremembered” their conversation. Clemens is just the latest superstar to be caught in baseball’s PED scandal. Home run king Barry Bonds is scheduled to go on trial in March on charges of lying to a federal grand jury when he said he never knowingly used performance-enhancing drugs. Mark McGwire admitted earlier this year to using steroids. Clemens, who turned 48 this month, ranks ninth on the career list with 354 victories and was an 11-time All-Star. During a 23-year career that ended in 2007, he played for the Boston Red Sox, the Toronto Blue Jays, the Yankees and the Houston Astros and struck out 4,672 with a lifetime 3.12 ERA. Jailed Williams to face DWI charges Stemming from a car wreck a week before Janurary ex-NBA star Jayson William guilty plea in the accidental killing of a limo driver, his was in a Manhattan court Friday. The former New Jersey Nets player has pleaded not guilty to driving while intoxicated. One of Williams lawyers, Oscar Holt III, told the New York Daily News earlier this week that Williams wants to put the DWI case behind him so he “can continue to work on changing the course of his life.” Williams, who retired from basketball in 2000, had a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit after his Mercedes-Benz SUV crashed into a tree around 3 a.m. on Jan. 5, prosecutors said. Police found him sitting in the passenger seat. He told them someone else was driving and had left, but prosecutors said surveillance video and witnesses establish he had been alone in the car. If convicted, the 42-year-old Williams could face up to a year in jail after the five-year prison sentence he is serving in New Jersey, where he pleaded guilty to aggravated assault for fatally shooting driver Costas

Christofi. Williams said his double-barreled 12-gauge shotgun went off while he was showing it to friends. He acknowledged he hadn’t checked the safety mechanism. Williams played nine seasons with the Philadelphia 76ers and the Nets before a leg injury forced his retirement. He was in the second year of a six-year, $86 million contract with the Nets. Serbian center released after shocking brawl Nenad Krstic, a Serbian center with the NBA’s Oklahoma City Thunder, was released Friday after being held in police custody overnight following a magnificent melee during a basketball game against Greece. The last game of the Acropolis tournament was abandoned with 2:40 to go, Greece was leading by one point when the fight broke out. The incident occurred just a week before the basketball world championship in Turkey, where both teams will play. A stunned crowd of about 5,000 at the Athens Olympic Arena watched players from both teams exchange punches and kicks. Two or three spectators entered the fray but were quickly shoved out of the arena. Krstic grabbed Greece forward Antonis Fotsis by the throat and threw a chair toward Sofoklis Schortsanitis, who was pursuing him. The chair hit Yannis Bouroussis, who had not played in the game because of a hand injury, and left him with blood trickling from a wound on the side of his head. The fight began when Fotsis had moved threateningly against Serbia guard Milos Teodosic, who had fouled him. The players continued fighting in the tunnel leading from the arena to the locker rooms before eventually being separated. Prosecutor Costas Simitzoglou released Krstic pending an investigation into the brawl. Investigators from Greece’s sports violence squad will examine video footage of the game and take statements from witnesses before deciding whether to bring charges. The International Basketball Federation announced in a statement on Friday it will conduct its own review into the violence. “FIBA will take whatever steps are necessary against any individual player found to have been involved in this shocking incident,” said FIBA secretary general Patrick Baumann. “FIBA wishes to make it clear that it will not hesitate from taking the strongest possible action against any individual found to have brought the sport of basketball into disrepute.” Krstic returned to his hotel after being released and was due to leave Athens for Belgrade later on Friday. He told Serbian media he hoped to avoid possible FIBA sanctions, and accused the Greeks of starting the fight. Serena Williams pulls out of U.S. Open In what she called one of the most devastating moments of her career, Serena Williams pulled out of the U.S. Open Friday saying she is still recovering from surgery to repair cuts on her right foot. The 28-year-old American was reportedly hurt by a

broken glass at a restaurant while she was in Munich last month -- shortly after winning her fourth Wimbledon singles title on July 3 and before playing in an exhibition match against Kim Clijsters that drew a tennisrecord crowd of 35,681 in Brussels on July 8. The top-ranked Williams has won three titles at Flushing Meadows, part of her 13 Grand Slam singles championships, the most among active women. Last year, she lost in the U.S. Open semifinals after a tirade at a line judge over a foot-fault call, an outburst that drew a record fine. “It is with much frustration and deep sadness that I am having to pull out of the U.S. Open,” Williams said in a statement released by her publicist. Williams went on to add: “My doctors have advised against my playing so that my foot can heal.” Williams had surgery in Los Angeles on July 15. She had already pulled out of three hard-court tournaments she was scheduled to enter in preparation for the U.S. Open and also skipped playing World TeamTennis. Williams has participated in the last 16 major tournaments; the last one she missed was Wimbledon in 2006.

life, Larese would name his son Alexander in honor of the man who kept him alive. The Frenchmen told young Ernst Larese stories of the best fighters in the world, the French Foreign Legion. A elite group of highly trained military unit, Larese saw it as a way to escape the now flattened Europe and scraped together enough money to buy a train ticket straight the the French Foreign Legion headquarters in Marce, France. He spent 5 years fighting in Algeria and Morocco and some other interesting time in Egypt. After Algeria defeated the french Ernst received a special Passport allowing him to travel freely within Europe. He decided to spend time in Paris, where he lived rather well on French cousin until he ran out of money. He was there with his good friend Johnny Mueller. The pair received some credible information that the nations of Australia and South Africa were paying for boatfair for strapping young men like themselves in hopes that they would visit, get to like and maybe one day help build their respective countries. Mueller and Larese flipped a coin and decided on Australia. The pair landed on the shores of Sydney in November of 1956. After spending some time on the beach Larese heard there were mountains with snow in Australia, and he set out after them, eventually landing a great job as the hotel manager of The Sundeck Lodge in the ski resort Perisher Valley. Larese was laid up with a broken leg (skiing, of course) when he met Barbara, the most beautiful girl in Australia, Larese now says as if it’s a matter of national record. The Sundeck burned down the following summer, and what could have been a very prosperous career for Larese was gone with it. But Larese went a new direction once again, married Barbara, and the two pondered what life would be like in the United States. Johnny Mueller was in a little place called Vail, and was urging Larese to get out there. Barbara came to the states first, working in San Fransisco as a nurse. Ernst stayed in Australia and waited on Barbara’s assessment; was America worth the move? She decided it was. Ernst went straight to Vail and almost immediately began building his dream restaurant night club, The Blue Cow, in the building that would later become home to the Tyrolean. Named after a mountain in Australia, The Blue Cow opened in 1967. Ernst and Barbara went on to move the shop down the road to Lionshead and change the name to The Swiss Hot Dog. They had three American kids and are now grandparents. Ernst continues to work at The Swiss Hot Dog 7 days a week and continues to tell his stories of the world, and now his story about “i thought I was just going to get finger-printed and then viola they made me an American right there!” Ernst will work at the Avon shop until it’s no longer possible. You can catch him there almost every day and his daughter, Simone, selling dogs at the farmer’s markets in Vail and Minturn. The Traer Creek place has lost some of the character of the old Lionshead location, but Barbara and family are OK with that. You might remember an entire section of east-facing wall being dedicated to an anti-jeep tirade, complete with pictures and facsimile of angry letters. That’s an Ernst Larese classic you won’t find in Avon, but the old man will still tell you all about if you ask him. His half-pork, half-veal, double-wiener-curry-sprouts-relish-and-brown-mustardmasterpiece is just that, a work of art. If you ask for extra bread with your soup, he might throw you out of the store on a busy day, but you’ll be back. Everyone comes back. And so does Ernst, every day. He says the reason he still works every day is because “to see the world, you don’t have to leave your house.” “I have people from all over the world coming right here to my shop,” he says. “This valley is full of wonderful people always visiting and living here.” Stop by one day and be among the many to bring the world to Ernst, as he does to us with his delicious Swiss Hot Dogs. An American hot dog it is not, but the founder is now an American. Congratulations to Ernst Larese.
