Vail remembers Gerald Gallegos Under cloudy skies in Vail yesterday, thousands filed in and out of the Ford Amphitheater to pay respects to Gerald Gallegos, the beloved valley philanthropist who passed away August 18 from health complications. Gallegos grew up in Minturn and attended Battle Mountain High School before growing a small, onetruck, one cement mixer company into one of the largest masonry companies in the country. “He was the stone mason hauling

cement up the scaffolding when they built the Interfaith Chapel, and grew into one of the most respected business men in Colorado,” said Chip Domke, former caretaker of the Vail Memorial Park, where a memorial stone awaits Gallegos. Gallegos donated all the labor and a great deal of flag stone to complete the memorial park, located in East Vail. “He knew so much about stone. I walked through the park with him a couple times and always walked

THE UPDATE Paris Hilton arrested on cocaine charge

Smoke wafting from a Cadillac Escalade on the Las Vegas Strip ignited Paris Hilton’s latest legal troubles late Friday, when an officer who suspected the smell was marijuana stopped the vehicle and police say a bag of cocaine fell out of the 29-year-old socialite’s purse. It’s the second time this year Hilton has been arrested on drug possession allegations, although authorities in South Africa dropped marijuana charges earlier this summer. In 2007, Hilton pleaded no contest to alcohol-related reckless driving and was sentenced to 45 days in jail.

Colorado teams sweep Vail stop of firefighter challenge By John LaConte Vail Mountaineer Editor Ryan Sutter called yesterday’s firefighter challenge the most difficult 3 minutes of any endurance test there is. And he should know. The Vail Firefighter has participated in some of the country’s most grueling enduro-competitions this summer, including an Ironman triathlon in Lake Placid and the recently wrapped Leadville 100 mountain bike race. The firefighter challenge is like the PGA tour for firefighter athletes. It makes stops in more than 25 locations in six countries, and is in Vail this weekend as part of its worldwide tour. The Vail stop is the highest-elevation event in the circuit. In yesterday’s leg of the competition, firefighters from all over the country went head-to-head in groups of two, first scaling a 5-story tower while carrying 42 lbs. of hose. Once at the top, they pulled a 42-pound donut roll of large diameter hose up the side of the makeshift tower to the top floor. Next they descended

How many would ride a train to Denver and back? After 15 years and $50 million, answer isn’t clear By Chris Hoff Mountaineer Contributing Writer Next month Colorado Department of Transportation is going to release a report which recommends a lightrail, or Advanced Guidance System (AGS) along I-70. The report will be made available to the public on September 10, and CDOT will hold meetings in October. Traffic along the route between Denver and the Vail Valley has been a historical problem. This year’s report follows in the foot steps of a 2004 report prepared but never submitted to the Federal Highway Administration for approval. But that isn’t the only echo from the past in this year’s report. The 2004 report put together two sets of alternatives, a preferred set that was estimated below $4 billion, and a non-preferred set of options above that threshold. The AGS was estimated to cost just over $6 billion. While the threshold of $4 billion was only meant as a guideline in the 2004 document, it has been removed completely from the 2010 report. CDOT spokeswoman Stacey Stegman says this is a result of public response during the planning process. A mass transit rail solution, and a plan to work without budget restraints actually echoes back to a step that was taken years before the 2004 document was prepared. In 2001 a initiative was put to the people of Colorado, to create a monorail project connecting Denver and Eagle County. Part of that initiative would have made the project exempt from state spending limits. This is the summary of the 2001 initiative: The proposed amendment to the Colorado Revised Statutes allows the expenditure of $50 million of surplus state revenue to plan and test a fixed guideway transportation system for the I-70 corridor linking

Denver International Airport and Eagle County Airport; and exempts the Colorado Intermountain Fixed Guideway Authority from state constitutional revenue and spending limitations. The 2001 initiative was asking the voters to allow the state to keep an excess of $50 million in tax revenue. This had to go to the voters because the state constitution mandates spending limits which required the surplus to be returned to the people. In 2001, with the state running a surplus the people said, no. From the initiative: The proposal asks voters to allow the Colorado Intermountain Fixed Guideway Authority to spend $50 million of the $927 million surplus from last year. That initiative, called the Colorado Test Fixed Guideway Act, or Amendment 26, failed 66 percent to 34 percent when put to the voters. The money would have gone to the Colorado Intermountain Fixed Guideway Authority (CIFGA), an organization that was created by the legislature in 1998 with the mission of developing a plan for a fixed guidance system along the I-70 from the Denver International Airport to the Eagle County Airport. The 2001 initiative was put on the ballot through a signature drive that gathered a record breaking 115,000 signatures. But this was the second attempt to get CIFGA access to the surplus funds. In February of 2000, a bill was introduced to the senate, and given the bill number 199. Senate Bill 199 asked for $100 million to be transferred to the Colorado Monorail Authority, which the bill also requested the CIFGA’s name be changed to. The money would have been dispersed to the CIFGA over a two year period. The authority would have gotten $50 million from the 1999-2000 fiscal [See NEW I-70 PLAN, page 18]

If you have kids that love birds, or if watching birds makes you feel like a kid at heart, a new book coauthored by a Vail local is for you. It is the latest in a serious of books that tell of the adventures of five curious little blue birds. The Blues Go Birding is written by Carol L. Malnor and Sandy F. Fuller, with illustration by Louise Schroeder. It is scheduled for released in September. The book shares the adventures of five special characters: Bing, Lulu, Uno, Eggbert and Sammi. If you aren’t familiar with them from previous books, don’t have a bird. We get to know how Bing is the leader of the group, Lulu dresses in pink, Uno loves loons, Eggbert lives for birding and Sammi is adventurous. The Blues decide after receiving a post card from a fan in England that it is time for a new trip, and they promise to keep in touch with their new friend, Rosie Robin. They set out on the adventure of following the route of famous birder Roger Tory Peterson. Uno hopes that they will see a loon on their trip. Roger Tory Peterson was born in 1908, and grew up loving birds. After writing “A field Guide to the Birds,” he became one of the most famous bird watchers in the world.

New Arrivals

During his trip along the entire coast of America, which the Blues are following, he saw more than 600 varieties of birds. The Blues start off their trip in the same place Peterson did, Newfoundland, Canada. In this cold landscape the Blues see an Atlantic Puffin, which Lulu mistakes for a penguin. The birds make 12 stops in all. Some of the places they get to see birds are Florida, Texas, California and Alaska, they meet and get to know a different bird at every stop. The book is filled with beautiful images of the birds, and cute conversations between the Blues. “Now there’s a real oyster cracker,” Eggbert says during their Chesapeake Bay visit about the American Oyster Catcher, a bird that cracks the shells of oysters open. “I like goldfish crackers better,” Sammi replies. “You’re a couple of crack-ups,” Lulu adds. At each stop the birds write a special note to Rosie Robin and Eggbert makes a note about the bird they meet on that stop. Each stop also has a box showing the body size, wingspan and habitat of the

bird the Blues meet. The authors of the book Carol L. Malnor and Sandy F. Fuller are both fans of the color blue. Malnor loves going birding, writing books and doing Tai Chi. She lives with her husband in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Fuller calls herself a kid at heart. She enjoys family and friends, mountains and guitars. Currently living in Colorado, she shares her life with her dog Riva. The illustrator of the book Louise Schroeder is a native of Canada, but lives with her husband and three daughters in Las Vegas. She enjoys being in nature and painting. Oh, does Uno ever see that loon, you will have to read the book to find out.

Locals off to an early start in freeski season Event equipment hijacked at the boarder, but doesn’t prevent locals from skiing to a couple good finishes

Vail Mountaineer

Health, Life, Disability, Dental, Medicare Supplement Let us review your needs & make custom recommendations that make sense for you.

By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer Despite the low snowfalls and a hijacking at the Chile-Argentina boarder, the 2010-2011 Freeski World Tour seems to be off to a great start in South America. Vail locals Mark Filippini, a Ski Club Vail coach who won a Sick Bird Award on last year’s tour for taking the best line at a comp in Crested Butte, and Rebecca Selig, the 2008 overall champ, made the lengthy trip to Chile and Argentina for the first two legs of the season. Showing up in South America is a must if you want to contend for the title, competitors say. The men’s finals at El Colorado started off with Japanese kamikaze Yu Sasaki setting the tone for the men by amping up the speed and taking more chances with larger airs. The variable snow conditions claimed some of the top finishers from yesterday, including day-one leader Griffin Post, but wasn’t able to tame the likes of Drew Stoeklein, Mathieu Imbert and local favorite Chopo Diaz. They finished 1-2-3. It was a rough first outing for the Vail athletes. Rebecca Selig, who is looking reclaim the title after a rough 2010, took ninth out of 10 competitors on the women’s side. Filippini got a tough break, as he did in Chile last year, falling in a wide-open section before the technical part of the pitch. “I was a little bummed out,” Filippini said. “The conditions were variable, and it was difficult to have come from summertime in Colorado to skiing a huge, long, technical venue known as Max’s face, which is one of the best venues that we have ever had on the Freeskiing World Tour.” Filippini had the second highest line score, but that didn’t matter because of the mistake high on the venue. “I was definitely disappointed, but I should have come down earlier to get my ski legs ready for the comp like some of the other guys that did well,” he said. Trouble at the border Reports from Argentina are a little mixed about what happened at the boarder. Mountain Sports International, the competition’s organizer, says on its Web site that they were forced to bribe officials with t-shirts, bibs

and FWT credentials. However our man on the ground, Filippini, tells us that the equipment was hijacked and held for ransom. “We managed to get the comp of with one run instead of the normal format. The MSI crew had to rent equipment from the local shops, which is not up to par compared to the U.S., and ski around in jeans, which was pretty funny,” Filippini said. It’s a lousy snow year in Argentina, which is a place that can be pretty hit or miss, like Europe, in terms of snowfall. Most impressively, event winner Chopo Diaz, Sick Bird winner Drew Tabke and women’s champion Angel Collinson reportedly competed with rental boots because their equipment was traveling with the MSI crew’s truck. For Filippini, the second comp was quite a bit more successful than El Colorado, as he seems to have his ski legs underneath himself. He took 11th out of 39 male competitors from around the world. “I ended up getting a little redemption – not the re[See LOCALS START FREESKI, page 19]

their own rally and march. While Beck billed his event as nonpolitical, conservative activists said their show of strength was a clear sign that they can swing elections because much of the country is angry with what many voters call an out-oftouch Washington. Palin told the tens of thousands who stretched from the marble steps of the Lincoln Memorial to the grass of the Washington Monument that calls to transform the country weren’t enough. “We must restore America and restore her honor,” said the former Alaska governor, echoing the name of the rally, “Restoring Honor.” Palin, the GOP vice presidential nominee in 2008 and a potential White House contender in 2012, and Beck repeatedly cited King and made references to the Founding Fathers. Beck put a heavy religious cast on nearly all his remarks, sounding at times like an evangelical preacher. “Something beyond imagination is happening,” he said. “America today begins to turn back to God.”

They marched past 15th and Larimer streets, where recently released video of police beating Shawn Johnson and Michael DeHerrera sparked a firestorm.

BLM seeks independent review of wild horse program

At the urging of a bipartisan group of House members, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management is asking for an independent review of its wild horse and burro program by the National Academy of Sciences. BLM officials said the two-year, $1.5 million study would determine whether the agency is using the best science available in managing wild horses and burros on Western rangelands. BLM managers estimate that 38,000 mustangs and burros roam 10 Western states, and half are in Nevada. The study tentatively set to begin Jan. 1 would focus

Iraq on highest alert for terror attacks

Iraq’s prime minister put his nation on its highest

The Iraqi security forces who will be left in charge have been hammered by bomb attacks, prompting fears of a new insurgent offensive and criticism of the government’s preparedness to protect its people. Still, President Barack Obama left no doubt Saturday in his weekly radio address that the U.S. is sticking to its promise to pull out of Iraq despite the uptick in violence. In a statement to state-run television, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said Iraqi intelligence indicated an alQaida front group and members of Saddam Hussein’s outlawed Baath party are collaborating to launch attacks “to create fear and chaos and kill more innocents.” “We direct the Iraqi forces, police and army and other security forces, to take the highest alert and precautionary measures to foil this criminal planning,” al-Maliki said in the statement issued late Friday.

Afghan militants in US uniforms storm 2 NATO bases

U.S. and Afghan troops repelled attackers wearing American uniforms and suicide vests in a pair of simultaneous assaults before dawn yesterday on NATO bases near the Pakistani border, including one where seven CIA employees died in a suicide attack last year. The raids appear part of an insurgent strategy to step up attacks in widely scattered parts of the country as the U.S. focuses its resources on the battle around the Taliban’s southern birthplace of Kandahar. The militant assault in the border province of Khost began about 4 a.m. when dozens of insurgents stormed Forward Operating Base Salerno and nearby Camp Chapman with mortars, rocket-propelled grenades and automatic weapons, according to NATO and Afghan police. Two attackers managed to breach the wire protecting Salerno but were killed before they could advance far onto the base, NATO said. Twenty-one attackers were killed — 15 at Salerno and six at Chapman — and five were captured, it said. Also yesterday, three

Occifer, I’m drunk, got a sandwhich?

Northern California newspaper, The Arcata Eye is reporting that a man hoping to enjoy a meal at the California Highway Patrol office not only didn’t get his hunger sated, but was jailed on charges of driving under the influence, and may have his parole revoked. The incident is reported to have happened on Thursday, Aug. 26 at about 3 p.m., CHP Officer Craig Barnes was in the parking lot of the CHP station installing a child safety seat for a motorist when his attention was diverted by music blasting from a silver 2002 Pontiac Grand Am driven by Jason Andrew Sabedra. The Eye reports that Barnes moved the people he’d been helping to a safe location and then directed his attention to Sabedra, who had parked and gotten out of the car. Kevin Hoover then reports that Sabedra walked, after a fashion, over to the officer, but had some difficulty remaining upright. Along with walking, talking proved another challenge for Sabedra, the article reports. In slurred, almost unintelligible speech, he asked the officer for food, notifying him he was hungry, reports Hoover. “He asked me for a sandwich a few times,” Barnes is quoted in The Eye. “He had that droopy look on his face – mouth droopy, eyes droopy.” “He was mostly cooperative,” the article quotes Barnes. “He didn’t throw up until we got to the jail.”

even for lifelong smokers. Seniors can benefit from smoking cessation counseling even if they’ve been smoking for 30 years or more, he says. Quitting can add years to their lives. Medicare already covers drugs to help smokers quit, as well as counseling for those who have developed a smoking-related illness. But starting immediately, the program will expand the benefit to cover up to eight counseling sessions a year for any beneficiary who wants to quit.

Chile, divided by quake, unites around miners

Just six months ago, one of the largest earthquakes in a century tore Chile apart, physically ripping the ground, triggering a deadly tsunami and leaving in the wreckage a divided society and government trying to decide whom to blame. Now, with Chile confronting a new disaster—33 men trapped in a mine below the Atacama Desert since Aug. 5—the nation is unified by the drama playing out in slow motion. Sitting alone on a hill above the mine where his brother, Juan, is buried alive, Oscar Illanes, 51, quietly fidgets with pebbles in his right hand and contemplates how his personal tragedy has also become that of his countrymen. “This accident has crossed all borders. Everyone in Chile, rich or poor, a mining family or not, is sending a positive force that sustains us,” he said. “The will to survive started with the 33 miners alone under the ground. It soon became 150 as the families arrived here. Now it is an entire nation, all working with the same spirit to free the men.” This time, Chileans are less interested in the blame game and more concentrated on getting the men out of the ground alive, even adopting the one can-do symbol from the quake that killed 500.

5 Calif. inmates shot during riot, 2 others hurt

Prison guards shot into a crowd to stop 200 rioting

inmates at California’s Folsom State Prison, wounding five, authorities said yesterday. Another two inmates were injured by other prisoners during Friday’s riot, which began at about 7 p.m. in the main exercise yard and ended after 30 minutes. Prison spokesman Lt. Anthony Gentile said officers fired after other efforts to break up the riot failed. “We tried to control the situation with chemical agents dispersed over the crowd,” Gentile said yesterday. “We fired several rounds of rubber bullets and that didn’t stop them from fighting.” None of the inmates suffered life-threatening injuries, and none of the 45 to 50 officers who responded were hurt. The prison, made famous in the Johnny Cash song “Folsom Prison Blues,” could remain on lockdown for the next several weeks during an investigation. That means inmates won’t be allowed to have visitors, use the exercise yard or attend work training, Gentile said.

Venezuelans protest against unchecked violence

Opponents of President Hugo Chavez marched through Caracas yesterday to protest rampant violence that claims thousands of lives each year in Venezuela and has been worsening in the past decade. Protesters beat on drums and held signs with images of skulls and crossbones and slogans such as “Enough” and “No more deaths.” Journalists estimated the crowd that marched through scattered rains at roughly 1,500. A hearse rolled past with a sign saying, “You could be next.” Nurse Gladys Perez said she is flabbergasted by the steady stream of people with gunshot wounds who are brought to the emergency room at the hospital where she works. “We’ve had up to 60 wounded people in a weekend,” said Perez, 55, adding that in her three decades as a nurse she has never seen so much bloodshed. “There’s an undeclared war here. I don’t know what to call it,” she said.

W.Va. governor wins Dem primary for US Senate

Popular Gov. Joe Manchin won the Democratic nomination Saturday and will face GOP primary winner and wealthy businessman John Raese in the race to fill the Senate seat vacated by the late Robert C. Byrd. Raese defeated a crowded field of Republicans and becomes part of the GOP quest to dismantle the Democratic Senate majority as high unemployment and the slow economic recovery take a toll on their political prospects this fall. In Louisiana, scandal-tainted Republican U.S. Sen. David Vitter easily beat two little-known challengers and will meet Democratic Rep. Charlie Melancon, who won his party’s primary, in November. Vitter survived a 2007 prostitution scandal after he admitted an unspecified “serious sin” after his phone number appeared in the records of a Washington prostitution ring. He has also shrugged off fresh questions about his judgment in allowing an aide to remain on his staff for more than two years after a violent attack on a woman police identified as his ex-girlfriend. With little competition from his own party, he and Melancon have already engaged in attacks. “There is a clear choice in this election, and as we educate voters about my positive plans for putting Louisiana first and contrast it with David Vitter’s hostility toward women, veterans and Louisiana families, I know we’ll win,” Melancon said. Vitter said in a statement that Melancon was too liberal. “Louisiana voters will get to choose between the current Obama policies of endless bailouts, failed stimulus, massive debt, and government-dominated health care, represented by Charlie Melancon, or the common sense conservative alternatives I’ve been advocating,” he said. The primary in West Virginia was hastily called after Byrd, a 92-year-old Democrat elected to a record ninth term in 2006, died June 28.

Johnson joining leader in final pairing Woods has horrific start, recovers strongly at Barclays Scotland’s Martin Laird ran off four birdies early in his third round and kept bogeys off his card Saturday at for a 6-under 65 at the Barclays and a threeshot lead over Dustin Johnson and Jason Day. Laird, who started at No. 95 in the standings, was at 12-under 201 at Ridgewood Country Club . A victory for the 27-yearold would move him to No. 1, assuring him a spot in all four majors next year. For Johnson, who has found nothing but hard luck in the majors this year, it will be his second straight tournament playing in the final group. So much for that hangover from the PGA Championship, where he was penalized two shots on the final hole when he didn’t realize he was in a bunker at Whistling Straits, knocking him out of a playoff. Johnson, struggling with a cold and his swing earlier in the week, began to hit his stride on a sunny day in northern New Jer-

sey. On the 616-yard 13th hole, he blasted a 3-wood to about 15 feet for eagle, and added consecutive birdies a short time later on his way to a 64 that gave him a chance to win. Day remains there, too, although he didn’t help himself on a day for scoring at Ridgewood. The 22-year-old Australian regained the lead by chipping for eagle on the short par-4 fifth hole, but he simply missed too many putts and struggled enough with his driver to give it away. Day made five bogeys, one of them on a par 5 on the back nine, and had to settle for a 70. Four shots out of the lead to start the third round, Tiger Woods hit a shocking 3-wood off the first tee that sailed over out of bounds at Ridgewood Country Club. It led to a triple bogey. Woods finished with backto-back birdies for a 1-over 72 that put him well behind the leaders.

“In the end, it probably cost me a chance to win the tournament,” said Woods, who rallied to get to 3-under 210. “But I’m pleased how I sucked it up and got it back the rest of the day, when it easily could have gone the other way. Hitting a ball like that, it can derail you. And it didn’t. I got it right back.” It was hard to believe the swing came from someone who had only missed two fairways over the first 36 holes. Woods attributed it to having too many swing thoughts swirling between the ears. “I got caught between two swings,” he said. “And I wasn’t committed to what I was doing. I wasn’t focused on exactly what I should have been doing, what I’ve been doing on the range, what I’ve been doing the last couple of weeks. And it backfired.” The top 100 in the FedEx Cup standings advance to the second round next week in the Deutsche Bank Championship

outside Boston. Woods started the playoffs at No. 112, and he seemed safe after opening with a 65 to share the lead. At one point Saturday, after a bogey from a fairway bunker on the ninth hole, Woods was projected outside the top 100. That was his last big mistake, however.

-12 -9 -9 -8 -7 -7 -7 -7 -7 -7

Woods hit to the front of the green in two on the 616-yard 13th hole for an easy up-anddown for birdie, and his 3-wood on the 587-yard 17th stopped 20 feet from the pin for a two-putt birdie. He finished with a 7-iron to 8 feet for birdie on the 18th. Woods all but ruled himself out of the tournament, although Sunday looms large. He most likely will need a round somewhere around par or better to advance to Boston, and the better he plays, the higher he moves up and increases his chances for the third round in Chicago, which is for the top 70.

Roger Federer hires Samprasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; old coach Roger Federer is bringing aboard Pete Samprasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; former coach, Paul Annacone, to work with him at the U.S. Open and beyond. Federer announced the hiring on his website Saturday, then discussed it during a pre-Open news conference. He and Annacone began spending time together a month ago to see whether the pairing would make sense. ANNACONE â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve moved it from a test trial to integrating him into the team now,â&#x20AC;? Federer said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going ahead.â&#x20AC;? Annacone, an American, is the former coach of Sampras, Marat Safin and Tim Henman. He has been the head coach of menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tennis for Britainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lawn Tennis Association, and Federer said on his website that Annacone will work with the Swiss star â&#x20AC;&#x153;more and more

as his responsibilities with LTA wind down.â&#x20AC;? Federer is seeded No. 2 at the U.S. Open, which begins Monday. He won five consecutive titles at the hard-court tournament until losing in the 2009 final. His streak of reaching at least the semifinals at a record 23 consecutive Grand Slam tournaments ended with a loss in the French Open quarterfinals this year, and he lost in that round at Wimbledon, too. Ranked No. 1 at the start of this season, Federer was overtaken by Rafael Nadal after the French Open. That left Federer one week shy of tying Samprasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; record of 286 total weeks atop the rankings. Federer broke Samprasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; career mark of 14 Grand Slam singles championships by winning No. 15 at Wimbledon in 2009, then added his 16th at the Australian Open in January. Annacone was Samprasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; coach for nine of his major titles.

Caroline Wozniacki wins 3rd straight Pilot Pen title U.S. Open top seed Caroline Wozniacki won her third consecutive Pilot Pen tennis title Sunday, beating Russian Nadia Petrova 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 in the final. The victory capped a good week for the 20-yearold Danish star, who won in Montreal on Monday and heads to New York with four wins this season, the most of any player on tour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel great,â&#x20AC;? Wozniacki said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a Tuesday start. So, you know, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m on a roll.â&#x20AC;? Sergiy Stakhovsky was scheduled to play Denis Istomin in the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final later Saturday. Wozniacki took the early lead, getting the only break of the first set in the sixth game. She broke Petrova again to open the second set and seemed to be in control. But holding serve was a problem for both players in the second set and the Russian found her return game. She broke Wozniacki three times, and was able to hold

up 5-3 to win the set. Wozniacki said part of the problem was the sun. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really difficult to see the ball when you were throwing it up from one side,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That made it a little bit more difficult.â&#x20AC;? Wozniacki went up 2-0 in the third, after Petrova appeared to pull something in her back and called for a trainer. She double faulted to go down 3-1, but fought back to 4-3. Wozniacki broke her again and served out the match. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was thinking, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;OK, I have a great serve, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m standing on the right side, I almost have new balls. So this one should be mine now,â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Wozniacki said. Wozniacki is 13-0 in New Haven and has now won the tournament more than any player except Venus Williams, who took four consecutive titles between 1999 and 2002.

NEW I-70 PLANS TO BE PRESENTED SOON year, and $50 million from the 2000-2001 fiscal year. SB 199, would have put the issue to voters in the next election, it passed the Senate but died in the House in May of 2000. In order for the legislature to put a measure on the ballot in Colorado it has to be approved by 2/3 of each chamber. The next time a mass transit rail option was suggested was in CDOT’s 2004 report. The 2004 report broadly referred to technology in the plan as an Advanced Guidance System, because there was a number of similar but different technologies, from light-rail as seen in Denver, or mono-rail like at Disneyland, or high-speed trains more popular in Japan. Depending on funding and technology versions of each of these technologies were considered. Since the state article which created the CIFGA expired in January of 2004, currently the proposal for a rail project along the I-70 corridor is being worked on by the Rocky Mountain Rail Authority (RMRA). The RMRA was founded by Clear Creek County, and the town of Monument in November of 2006. They have invited every local government in the state interested in passenger rail service to join, Eagle County is a member, as is the City of Vail. Seventeen other counties, and 25 cities and towns have joined the RMRA –– mostly

FIREFIGHTER CHALLENGE through a set of swinging doors and opened it up on a target before shutting it down, running over to a 175-pound dummy “victim” and dragging him 100 feet to the finish line. The winner, 30-year-old William Gates of the United States Air Force Academy team, finished the course in 1 minute, 33 seconds. The world record is 1:09. The Air Force team went on to win the team competition, as well, combining their top three times for a 5 minute, 17 second finish. They were part of a Colorado sweep, as the South Metro Fire Rescue team out of Centennial took second and the Englewood Fire Department and former Vail Firefighter Bryan Cash took third. Sutter and the Vail Fire Department team took 8th with a combined time of 8:08. Sutter was joined on the Vail FD team by Vail firefighters Joey Geary, John LoFaro, Todd Burtar and Andrew Facchini. For Sutter, whom you might remember as being the season one star of the reality TV series The Bachelorette, the firefighter challenge marked the 7th competition of a 10-event challenge he set for himself to raise money for adults with cancer. The idea came when he and old friend Brad Ludden were talking about Sutter’s


in the urban Denver area and along the I-70 and I-25 corridors. Pikes Peak Regional Transit Authority, Denver RTD and Roaring Forks Transit Authority are also member organizations. As long as the traffic problem on I-70 remains unsolved the mass-transit rail solution is going to remain a solution. In a meeting with the Colorado House Transportation Committee in July of 2003, the Chairwoman of the CIFGA, Sally Hopper, predicted the light-rail plan for the corridor wouldn’t die, though she was disappointed at losing the election. In the same meeting, the Executive Director of the CIFGA, Miller Hudson, said an AGS plan could remove 35 percent of the traffic from I-70. Hudson’s optimism about the usage of a mass-transit rail system along the corridor is even greater today than it was then. It has to be a new technology, not the old steal wheels on steal track because of the difficulties along the corridor, but he believes in the next 30 years something will be built. “I think it is even higher today,” he said about the potential reduction in traffic. It could be as high as 40 to 50 percent he suggested. “Over the last 15 years, four studies separate studies have been done,” Hudson said. “At the end of the day

all four studies recommended an AGS.” While he estimates $50 million has been spent on studies, one study that has not been done is a bond quality ridership study. This is an extensive study that would provide a clearer answer to the question of how many people would use a mass-transit rail option. He said the CIFGA tried to spend some of its bond money on a ridership study, but was blocked by the Federal Rail Authority. He explained the ridership study done by CDOT was done on two weekends, one in March and one in November. This isn’t adequate enough of a study to determine ridership, he said, adding it was a drought year so traffic was particularly low that spring. As Hudson sees it, there are two solutions to the I-70 traffic congestion. A mass-transit rail option is the only plan Hudson believes has the flexibility to meet the demands of traffic in the corridor. “Either make the highway bigger to provide more capacity, or provide more capacity on top of the highway,” he said. The problem unique to the corridor is the spike in traffic on winter weekends. Hudson explained it spikes as much as 500 to 700 percent. “We can never put enough lanes on the highway to meet that demand,” he said.

involvement with the group. Ludden, a professional kayaker, is the founder and CEO of First Descents, an non-profit organization started in Vail which is “committed to curing young adults of the emotional effects of cancer and empowering them to regain control of their lives by experiencing outdoor adventure therapy through kayaking, rock climbing and other outdoor adventure sports,” according to their mission statement.

[From page 2]

As Sutter continues to become more involved with First Descents, he’s found himself constantly inspired by the inner strength of the individuals he’s come into contact with through the organization. He told Ludden he wanted to do an Ironman competition this year to raise money for the group, and First Descents came up with an idea called the 10.10.10 First Descents Challenge, where Sutter will try to inspire 10,000 people to give $10 each in an effort to raise $100,000

for First Descent’s 10th anniversary. “I said yeah, that sounds like a great way to reach out to people,” said Sutter. “At the time I was still thinking I was only doing the one event. “Then they said wouldn’t it be awesome if you also did 10 events,” he said with a laugh. “One thing led to another and it grew into this 10-headed monster. It’s been awesome, I’ve got a ton of support.” So far Sutter has raised more than $25,000 for the organization, but seven races into the challenge, he still has a long way to go. Visit to help him get there. $100,000 will provide life transforming camping trips for 100 young adults with cancer. Sutter’s next competition is the Nautica Malibu Triathlon in Malibu, Calif., Sept. 11-12. But he says he’s most looking forward the 24 Hours of Moab in Utah October 9-10. His 10.10.10 First Descents Challenge concludes on November 7 with the New York City Marathon. The Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge’s Vail stop wraps up today with relays and tandem races beginning at 10 a.m. at Ford Park.

demption that I had hoped for, but definitely a better result than El Colorado,â&#x20AC;? he said. Again with the second-highest line score, Filippini toned it down a little, which cost him a spot in the top 10. However, he was able to stomp all five of his airs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Personally, I was concentrating on staying on my feet and not falling, especially in an area where I should not fall,â&#x20AC;?

he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was very important to me to finish my run without falling in an easy section of the venue because I have been plagued by stupid mistakes over the past year, which have cost me good results and a couple podium spots.â&#x20AC;? Rebecca Selig improved to seventh of 13 competitors. The Freeski World Tour will reconvene at Revelstoke in January.
