Fresh ground news since 2008

By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer The season-long battle between local pro cyclists Jay Henry and Jake Wells will come to a head tonight at The Beaver Creek Blast, which is the final event in the 2010 Vail Recreation District’s (VRD) Mountain Bike Race Series. The seven-race series has toured across


Eagle County this summer, providing an opportunity for riders of all ages and abilities to get involved in mountain bike racing. But with pro cyclist Gretchen Reeves running away with the women’s title, it has been the Men’s Pro Division that has grabbed most of the attention. Pedal Power’s Jay Henry, who won last year’s series handedly, has come out of the gates strong this year, winning the

Eagle Ranch Classic and Berry Creek Bash races in June, and squeaking past Wells in a near photo finish at the inaugural Boneyard Brawl in Eagle earlier this month. Wells, a pro cyclocross racer who is riding for Dogma in this series, crept back into the picture by winning the first VRD race of his career at the Vail Grind/ Mike Janelle Memorial in July. He went

Stocks fell for a fourth day yesterday after another disappointing report on housing deepened worries that the economic recovery could be fading. Bond yields fell as investors sought out more stable investments. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 133.96 points to close at 10,040.45, while The Standard and Poor’s 500 Index fell 15.49, to close at 1051.87. The Nasdaq composite closed at 2123.76 after losing 35.87.

Authorities went door-to-door in small towns and rural areas yesterday in pursuit of a Colorado inmate who broke out of a maximum-security prison in what was his fourth escape — one of which included a ride down a river [See THE UPDATE, pages 8-11]

on to take the Davos Dash race two weeks ago in West Vail. Heading into tonight’s final, the two riders are separated by a mere 15 points – Henry with 550 and Wells with 535. A first place finish earns the winner 100 points, 85 for second and 80 for third. So in the case of a Wells-Henry 1-2 finish, the series would be all tied up. The VRD has determined that in such an HENRY instance, the points standing would expand to include both riders’ lowest scoring race, which is usually dropped to allow for an absence or unlucky ride. Henry’s lowest score is better than Wells’, so in the event of a tie, we’d have a repeat champ. WELLS Both Henry and Wells are coming off big races outside the valley in the last 10 days. Henry took [See EXCITING SHOWDOWN, page 15]

Voters in Eagle County will officially be deciding whether to extend term limits for the county commissioners after the commissioners voted yesterday to place the question on the Nov. 2 election ballot. “I think we were all on the same page when it comes to the term limit question. It doesn’t directly affect any of us that are currently on the board,”

said County Commissioner Peter Runyon, “so we felt like it was the right time to move forward with it and put it on the ballot.” Currently commissioners are limited to two terms. If voters pass the ballot question, it would open commissioners to the opportunity to run for a third term. Commissioner Sarah Fisher is hoping to be re-elected to her second term in November. Runyon announced he would not seek a third term [See TERM, page 5]

Avon Nov. ballot determined 2 incumbents, 3 challengers vie for 4 council seats The deadline to get on the November ballot in the Avon Town Council election came and went this week, and the nominees are incumbents Rich Carroll and Dave Dantas squaring off against challengers Chris Evans, Todd Goulding, and Jim Benson. The top-four vote getters will be named to the council in November. Mayor Ron Wolfe and Mayor Pro Tem Brian Sipes, both limited

to two terms, are completing their second respective terms and will be stepping down in November. A new mayor will be elected by the council members at the first council meeting following the election. It’s not too late to join the race, as Avon Municipal Code allows for write-in candidates until five days before the election. Avon’s Town Hall, located at One Lake Street adjacent to Nottingham

Park, will serve as the polling location on November 2. The polls are scheduled to open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. The last day to register to vote in this election is Oct. 4, 2010. For questions regarding your voter registration or to request a mail ballot, contact the Eagle County Clerk and Recorder’s Office at 328-8600 or log on to clerk.

Fans of Herbie Hancock will immediately recognize his classic hit “Chameleon.” In a sense, the jazz legend himself is somewhat of a musical chameleon, whose compositions and recordings change direction as easily as the lizard’s skin changes color. With Hancock, the transformations are the result of an unwillingness to stay the same and a mind that harbors a love of all music, rather than confining that affection to one particular style. Such is the experience that awaits concert goers this evening, August 25, when the jazz legend makes his lone Colorado stop of a nationwide tour at the Vilar Performing Arts Center in Beaver Creek for an 8 p.m. celebration of his new release, “The Imagine Project. “Herbie Hancock was most certainly on our bucket wish list of legendary artists,” explained Kris Sabel, Executive Director of the Vilar Center, “and we are proud to present him in our intimate venue. This show truly represents a momentous occasion and I hope music fans will take full advantage of this unique opportunity.” In playing acoustic bebop jazz as well as electronic fusion, in composing sweeping film scores alongside playful advertising jingles, Hancock knowingly risks disappointing those camps that wish to claim him

for their own. But only by straddling so many styles and interests can he tap his abundant talent for versatility and allow his moods and feelings to find their truest expression in music. Born in Chicago, Hancock’s parents discovered that he would stop crying when music was played. And, as a toddler, he would respond ecstatically when a piano was near. The process that is now the man was finally put in motion when his parents bought an old upright piano for $25. Prompted by his mother’s love of music and by enthusiastic public school instructors, young Hancock listened to opera on the radio and excelled at the piano, winning a scholastic contest at age 11. The

ig Last Pf the o Roast mer! Sum

award was a concert performance of a Mozart concerto with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. In 1956, again at the urging of his mother, Hancock enrolled at Grinnell College in Iowa, at first studying engineering, the knowledge of which would later help him launch electronic jazz fusion. However, he soon returned to a field closer to his heart, music composition. In 1960, armed with an analytical understanding of music, Hancock returned to Chicago, where he worked as a freelance pianist with several jazz combos and visiting bands, playing with, among others, Coleman Hawkins. That winter, a blizzard delayed the pianist for trumpeter Donald Byrd’s group, which was scheduled to play in Chicago, and a local club owner suggested Hancock as a substitute. Following that performance, Byrd became the first professional jazz mentor for Hancock, bringing the young pianist to New York City, introducing him to those within the jazz establishment, and laying the groundwork for Hancock’s 1962 debut album, “Takin’Off.” In 1963, on the recommendation of Byrd, Hancock was invited to join the quintet of jazz giant Miles Davis. Along with Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams, the drummer who would help Hancock [See HERBIE, page 15]

TERM LIMITS QUESTION HEADED FOR BALLOT regardless of the outcome of the election. Medical marijuana question still not finalized Another question that has been discussed at great length among the commissioners is the banning of medical marijuana facilities in the unincorporated areas of the county, like Edwards and Eagle-Vail. That question was expected to be coupled with the term limits question on the November ballot, however the subject was tabled yesterday in an effort to finalize the official ballot language. A resolution including specific ballot language will need to be considered and adopted by the commission-


[From page 1]

ers during a public meeting no later than Sept. 3. “I still feel confident it will be placed on the ballot,” said Runyon. “I think the board agrees with that. The question then becomes how to word the ballot question. We still felt like the wording needed to be worked on though.” The county has made several attempts to gather feedback from the community and still welcomes any comments the public may have on the wording of the possible ballot question.

in an inner tube. Douglas J. Alward, 48, fled the Sterling Correction Facility, about 100 miles northeast of Denver, on Sunday. Department of Corrections spokeswoman Katherine Sanguinetti said authorities were going door-to-door in towns and rural areas near Sterling in their search for him. Authorities were considering expanding the search area yesterday as the FBI joined the search. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We of course need the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help to locate this very dangerous individual,â&#x20AC;? said Denver FBI spokesman Dave Joly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He planned an elaborate escape from prison. He appears to be intelligent, resourceful and motivated.â&#x20AC;? Joly declined to elaborate on how Alward escaped. Sanguinetti said prison officials were investigating whether Alward had help and arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t saying how he escaped but stressed that he could not have simply walked away because of high security. Alward was serving a 20- to- 40-year sentence for attempted murder, assault, burglary and kidnapping. Alward is considered extremely dangerous, Sanguinetti said. Authorities are offering a $15,000 reward for information leading to Alwardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capture. Alward was first incarcerated in 1980 for a conviction of attempted first-degree murder, assault and burglary. He escaped from Buena Vista Correctional Facility on Dec. 2, 1980, by running from a prison bus with an inner tube and jumping into the Arkansas River in southern Colorado, Sanguinetti said. Officials caught him a short time later as he floated down the river.

Rangel discusses dignity

Rep. Charles Rangel has shot back at President Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent comment that he â&#x20AC;&#x153;end his career with dignity.â&#x20AC;? Speaking at a candidateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forum in Harlem Monday night, Rangel said the president hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x153;been around long enough to determine what my dignity is.â&#x20AC;? The embattled 80-year-old congressman said it was more likely that he would protect Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dignity over the next two years. Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s remark was made three weeks ago. The former House Ways and Means Committee chairman was accused of using official stationary to raise money for a college center bearing his name; delaying tax payments on income on a rental unit in the Dominican Republic; failing to file his financial disclosure statements on time; and operating four rent-stabilized apartments in New York, including one he used as a campaign office. The Democrat has vowed to fight the charges and is refusing to resign. He says he is focusing on his reelection to his district in Manhattanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Harlem neigh-

Top Marine thinks Afghanistan withdrawal date helps Taliban

The New York Times is reporting a top general in Afghanistan has warned that President Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s July, 2011 deadline for troop withdrawal might help the enemy. It is â&#x20AC;&#x153;probably giving our enemy sustenance,â&#x20AC;? the Times quotes the general saying. This comment echos what many on the right, including former presidential candidate John McCain have been saying for years. It is also not the first time the president and the war have publicly been criticized by top leaders in the armed forces, in June top commander Stanley McChrystal was fired for comments he made to the music magazine, The Rolling Stone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you follow it closely, and of course we all do, we know the president was talking to several audiences at the same time when he made his comments on July 2011,â&#x20AC;? the commandant, Gen. Conway, is quoted in the article. Conway was indicating that Obama was speaking to a domestic American audience as well as the Afghans. Conway went on to predict a limited benefit to the enemy, since few troops are likely to be pulled out in July, 2011. The article reports him suggesting the enemyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foot troops have been told American troops would pull out in mass, and would be demoralized when they realize that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t true.

Stem cell ruling will be appealed

The government will quickly appeal a court ruling that undercut federally funded embryonic stem cell research, the Obama administration declared yesterday, but dozens of experiments aimed at fighting spinal cord injuries, Parkinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease and other ailments probably will stop in the meantime. The White House and scientists said Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s court ruling was broader than first thought because it would prohibit even the more restricted stem cell research allowed for the past decade under President George W. Bushâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rules. The Justice Department said an appeal is expected this week of the federal judgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preliminary injunction that disrupted an entire field of science. That initial ruling wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop all the work that scientists call critical to finding new therapies for devastating diseases. The National Institutes of Health told anxious researchers late yesterday that if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already

But 22 projects that were due to get yearly checks in September, $54 million worth, â&#x20AC;&#x153;will be stopped in their tracks,â&#x20AC;? said NIH Director Francis Collins â&#x20AC;&#x201D; meaning a waste of the millions those scientists already have spent unless they can find private dollars to keep the stem cells alive. Dozens more proposals wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a hearing pending the court caseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conclusion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This decision has just poured sand into the engine of discovery,â&#x20AC;? Collins said. Obama administration addresses human rights The Obama administration has told the United Nations that Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s human rights record is less than perfect while stressing that the U.S. political system has built-in safeguards that promote improvements. In its first-ever report to the U.N. Human Rights Council on conditions in the United States, the State Department said some minorities are still victims of discrimination. Despite progress in reforming past unfair policies and practices, the report said â&#x20AC;&#x153;work remains to meet our goal of ensuring equality before the law for all.â&#x20AC;? Council members are required to review their rights records. The U.S. had shunned the council until last year over its criticism of Israel and a membership that includes repressive regimes.

Potential sellers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; those with the stomach to put their homes on the market at all, anyway â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are reluctant to lower their prices. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really is a self-fulfilling prophecy,â&#x20AC;? said Aaron Zapata, a real estate agent in Brea, Calif. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If all buyers perceive that home prices are coming down, then they will stop making offers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and home prices will come down.â&#x20AC;? While the standoff plays out, home sales are plummeting. Sharp declines were recorded in each of the four regions the group tracks. Yet the pain is being felt unevenly from state to state and city to city. Some markets are rebounding even as others languish.

Obama administration addresses human rights

The Obama administration has told the United Nations that Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s human rights record is less than perfect while stressing that the U.S. political system has built-in safeguards that promote improvements. In its first-ever report to the U.N. Human Rights Council on conditions in the United States, the State Department said some minorities are still victims of discrimination. Despite progress in reforming past unfair policies and practices, the report said â&#x20AC;&#x153;work remains to meet our goal of ensuring equality before the law for all.â&#x20AC;? Council members are required to review their rights records. The U.S. had shunned the council until last [See THE UPDATE, pages 10-11]

31 die in Somalian massacre

Islamist militants wearing Somali military uniforms stormed a hotel favored by lawmakers in the war-battered capital yesterday, firing indiscriminately and killing 32 people, including six parliamentarians. A suicide bomber and one of the gunmen were also killed in the brazen attack just a half-mile (1 kilometer) from the presidential palace. The attack showed the insurgent group al-Shabab, which controls wide areas of Somalia, can penetrate even the few blocks of the capital under the control of the government and African Union troops. Yesterdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well-planned assault came one day after al-Shabab warned of a new â&#x20AC;&#x153;massive war.â&#x20AC;? Sheik Ali Mohamud Rage, an insurgent spokesman, said the attack by members of the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;special forcesâ&#x20AC;? targeted government leaders, foreign agents and â&#x20AC;&#x153;apostatesâ&#x20AC;? at the $10-a-night Muna Hotel. Survivors of the hour-long slaughter described seeing bodies strewn throughout the hotel and people scrambling to safety through windows. An 11-year-old shoeshine boy and a woman selling tea were among the dead.

George Michael is going in

British pop singer George Michael pleaded guilty in a London court yesterday to driving under the influence of cannabis when he crashed his car into a shop last month, and could face jail. The 47-year-old Careless Whisper star also admitted possessing cannabis cigarettes when he appeared at Highbury Corner Magistratesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Court. Dressed in a black suit over a black jumper, he was greeted by a mob of photographers as he arrived for the MICHAEL appearance. In court, he spoke only to give his plea and confirm his real name of Georgios Panayiotou. District Judge Robin McPhee gave the singer an interim six-month driving ban, and said he would be sentenced on September 14 after the court considers his case. He will remain on bail until that date. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I make it clear the options in respect of sentence remain open, including the power to imprison,â&#x20AC;? the judge told him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a serious matter. Your driving was extremely poor and there was an accident. There is also a conviction from three years ago.â&#x20AC;? In the latest incident, he was arrested after his Range Rover car crashed into a photography shop in north London in the early hours of Sunday, July 4.

Lindsay Lohan is leaving

A status hearing will be held today in Lindsay Lohanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probation case amid unconfirmed reports that she could be released early from rehab. Court officials had said Superior Court Judge Elden Fox planned to issue a ruling yesterday, but spokesman Allan Parachini later said any ruling would be issued after the hearing set for today. The actress is not required to attend the hearing. Lohan has been in an inpatient program since Aug. 2, serving a court-orLOHAN dered 90-day stay. She went to rehab after spending 14 days in jail for a probation violation in a 2007 drug case. Fox is now handling the case after taking over for another judge.

Lauryn Hill back on stage

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The support system that I needed was not necessarily in place,â&#x20AC;? Hill told NPR regarding her lack of record releases in the past few years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were things about myself, things that I needed to go through and experience in order for me to feel like it was worth it.â&#x20AC;? Hill, a five-time Grammy winner, spoke to the radio network earlier this month at the Harmony Festival in Santa Rosa, California, during which she gave a rare performance. The 35-year-old, who has five children with reggae legend Bob Marleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son Rohan, plans on performing at the Rock the Bells festival series in August. Recording new music is the next step, she said, adding: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just time and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m started to get excited again.â&#x20AC;? Hillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best-known hits include â&#x20AC;&#x153;Doo Wop (That Thing)â&#x20AC;?, from her 1998 solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, as well as the Fugeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 1995 song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ready Or Notâ&#x20AC;? and the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1996 cover of Roberta Flackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Killing Me Softly.â&#x20AC;?

Woody will shoot in Europe?

Woody Allen says he began shooting movies in European cities because he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to do so in New York. However, the film director told reporters in the northern Spanish city of Oviedo that he finds Manhattan poses fewer limitations than European cities, where more tailoring of the story is required to fit the location. Allen was in Spain yesterday to attend a premiere of his last film, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You Will Meet A Tall Dark Strangerâ&#x20AC;? in the nearby town of Aviles. The film, shot in London, stars Naomi Watts, Josh Brolin and Antonio Banderas. On Monday, Allen, who is being accompanied by his wife and one of his daughters, took part in a promotional video for the Asturias region, known for its stunning mountains and coastal scenery.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not smart to brag about bugging the teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lounge

A pair of mischievous Swedish schoolgirls ended up in court for bugging their teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; staff room in a bid to get better grades, local New York media reported yesterday according to the Fox News affiliate in the city. The girls were reportedly caught when one of them was so excited about the scam that she blabbed about it on her Facebook page, Fox News cites news website The Local. The article reports the teenagers, who were not named, came up with the plan after finding a key to the teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lounge. They reportledly then went to a spy shop, bought bugging equipment and planted it in the staff room the day before teachers were due to have a meeting about how to grade studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; work. The pair reportedly thought the plot would give them an advantage on upcoming tests and school work -- but after one of the girls mentioned their clever plan on

Pro Bowl receiver Sidney Rice has hip surgery in Vail Vikings star could miss the first half of the season Pro Bowl receiver Sidney Rice could miss the first half of the Vikings’ season — or more — after having hip surgery at the Steadman Philippon clinic in Vail on Monday. Coach Brad Childress said yesterday it was hard to give a specific timetable for Rice’s return, but he said typically it takes about eight weeks before a player can get back to football. It’s a huge blow for the Vikings, who have very little depth at receiver. Percy Harvin has struggled with migraines during the preseason, and the team signed veteran Javon Walker yesterday to help out. After catching just 45 passes during an injury-plagued first two seasons in Minnesota, Rice emerged as Brett Favre’s go-to guy in his third season with 83 catches for 1,312 yards and eight TDs. He earned his first Pro Bowl bid, though he was injured in the playoffs and did not play again. Favre raved about Rice’s combination of size and leaping ability, saying he felt confident throwing the ball his way even if Rice appeared to be well covered. Favre’s confidence in him allowed Rice to blossom, positioning himself as one of the best downfield threats in the NFC despite a lack of game-breaking speed. He saw three specialists in the offseason to examine his injured hip and declined to have surgery, hoping the condition would heal on its own. Rice never participated in a practice during training camp, and it became apparent late last week that the injury was not improving fast enough for him to be ready for the season opener against New Orleans on Sept. 9. Suddenly, Favre’s 20th season in the NFL got a whole lot tougher. In addition to Rice’s injury, Harvin has been plagued by several attacks of migraine headaches this month, the latest coming last week when he vomited on the field and needed to be taken to a hospital by ambulance. He hasn’t played in either of the first two games of the preseason and never knows when another bout will occur. Harvin did not practice yesterday and it is still unclear if he will be able to play Saturday night against Seattle, the one game of the preseason where the starting offense is expected to play for a significant portion of the game. With Bernard Berrian the only healthy, established veteran receiver on the roster, the Vikings turned to one of Favre’s old teammates in hopes of filling the gaps. Walker was a first-round draft pick of the Packers in 2002, and flourished early in his career with Favre at

the helm. He caught 89 passes for 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2004 to become one of the top receivers in the league. But Walker fell out of favor in Green Bay during a messy contract dispute in the summer of 2005 that drew criticism from Favre. He injured his knee the following season and has been plagued by knee and ankle injuries in subsequent years with the Raiders and Broncos. The Vikings waived Ryan Moats to make room for Walker.

3TARTYOUR0ARTY WITH5S Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa throws one towards the plate yesterday against the Atlanta Braves during a game in Denver. AP photo.

Jorge De La Rosa pitches Rockies past Braves, 5-2 Jorge De La Rosa pitched seven effective innings and Carlos Gonzalez hit his 26th home run to lead the Colorado Rockies to a 5-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves last night. Seth Smith also homered and Eric Young had a career-high three hits for the Rockies. Huston Street worked the ninth for his 12th save. Alex Gonzalez homered and had two RBIs for Atlanta, which has lost three straight for the first time in two months. De La Rosa (5-4) had his best outing since missing nearly three months with a torn pulley tendon on his left middle finger. He allowed two runs and six hits, struck out seven, walked one in earning his second win since coming off the disabled list July 9. After giving up Gonzalez’s fourth home run to make it 2-1 in the sec-

ond inning the Braves couldn’t solve De La Rosa. He retired 14 of the next 16 batters, and the only one who gave him trouble was pitcher Derek Lowe, who singled in the third and drew a leadoff walk in the sixth. Lowe was erased when Colorado turned one of its four double plays. De La Rosa faltered in the seventh. He struck out the first two batters of the inning but when he went 1-0 on Matt Diaz, manager Jim Tracy and trainer Keith Dugger went to the mound to look at the lefty’s pitching hand. He stayed in the game and Diaz singled to right, moved to second on a wild pitch and scored on Alex Gonzalez’s single to make it 3-2. De La Rosa got Melky Cabrera to ground out to end the inning. The Rockies gave their starter the lead right away. Young hit a

The Rockies had chances to extend the lead. Young was stranded at third twice, including when Colorado loaded the bases in the fifth. Todd Helton, coming off his first four-hit game in more than a year, hit a broken-bat lineout to second to end the threat. Smith gave De La Rosa breathing room when he led off the sixth with his 15th home run to make it 3-1. The Rockies added two unearned runs in the ninth on Dexter Fowler’s two-out, bases-loaded single off reliever Takashi Saito. Lowe (11-12) allowed three runs and six hits, walked two and struck out four in six innings.

EXCITING SHOWDOWN sixth at the Leadville 100 and won the Mountain States Cup in Telluride last weekend, while Wells was a part of the winning Street Swell single-speed team at the 24 Hours in the Sage at Gunnison, which he said was pretty taxing. “It’s going to play out the way it’s going to play out,” Wells said yesterday. “It’s kind of interesting that it was thrown into my lap. I didn’t approach the season with (winning) as a goal, it just panned out that I have a chance. It’s been a great amount of fun.” But this is far from a two-horse race. Last year’s Beaver Creek Blast winner and pro off-road triathlete Josiah Middaugh designed the Xterra course up at the Beav’, and he’s as familiar with the trails as anyone. It only takes one ringer to squeeze into one of the top two spots and the whole makeup of the race MIDDAUGH would change. Henry only beat Middaugh by a second at the Davos Dash two weeks ago. “This valley is pretty amazing with the

athletes that show up to the Wednesday night races. You never know who’s going to show up and who’s going to be fit because everyone’s on a little different program,” Wells said. The Beaver Creek Blast race will begin at the Centennial Chairlift at the base of the mountain and features a variety of courses for all categories. Youth racers will ride two to four miles up the mountain and around to the finish on the Beaver Creek Village Loop Trail. The Pros, Men’s Expert, Men’s Vet and Master Expert and Men’s Single Speed categories will race an 18.1-mile loop that will take them all the way to Arrowhead mountain and back. The Sport, Vet Sport, Master’s Sport, Women’s Single Speed and Clydesdale divisions will race 14 miles, which includes a medium loop to the top of Arrowhead, then back to Beaver Creek via Allie’s Way and a single track section by Beano’s Cabin. The Beginner and Junior racers will test themselves on a seven-mile loop that will include Allie’s Way and the Beaver Creek Village Loop.

HERBIE HANCOCK TONIGHT develop his signature piano style. The young musician was given comfortably broad guidelines for playing. The Davis group became one of the most influential jazz combos in the 1960s, creating an environment in which the musicians were given free reign to instrumentally express their emotions and moods. After leaving Davis in 1968, Hancock, always eager to take new musical steps, formed his own quintet, which departed from the acoustic status quo and welcomed the emerging age of electronics. Under Davis he had started playing the electric piano and while it provided a less personal sound, the instrument tapped into Hancock’s fascination with technology and further stretched the limits of music and his own virtuosity. In 1971 Hancock helped usher in the era of jazz fusion with the album “Mwandishi”, the Swahili word for composer, which featured state-of-the-art technology, and was named one of the year’s ten best releases by Time magazine. Venturing further into unknown territory, Hancock released the watershed “Headhunters” in 1973, an album using synthesizers and other electronics,

which essentially defined the jazz/funk/ pop hybrid and sold more than a million copies. The 1983 release “Future Shock” once again confirmed Hancock’s successful formula of using new sounds and high technology to frame popular music. The song Rockit reached No. 1 on the dance and soul music charts, became the biggest selling twelve-inch single in Columbia Records’ history, and garnered a Grammy Award for best rhythm and blues instrumental. Inventiveness with the song’s video, featuring dismembered robots, led to Hancock’s collection of five MTV awards. Tickets for Herbie Hancock and “The Imagine Project” are priced at $98 and $128 and are available online at vilarpac. org, by phone at 888.920.ARTS(2787) or in person at the Vilar Center box office in Beaver Creek.
