House Dance Series, saying “To do this in the name of education is a wonderful thing.” Michelle Obama opened her address by welcoming everybody to her house and by thanking Woetzel for his several contributions to the world of dance, specifically his position as Vail International Dance Festival Director, among a couple other accomplishments. “I want to extend a warm welcome to all the young people here today,” Mrs. Obama said. “But today isn’t simply about the performance or the series or the young people. It’s about the extraordinary career of an amazing, talented, very fly woman – Judith Jamison.” Everybody then enjoyed a variety of performances from directors like Alvin Ailey, Paul Taylor, Twyla Tharp, and Super Crew, winners of America’s Best Dance Crew. “Dance is the soul of this country. Dance is so American it’s ridiculous. I feel so good know we’re in good hands,” Judith Jamison said to Mrs. Obama. “You recognize that America is about diversity and that’s what keeps us together… To the young people, you are our blessing.

Then came a blinding cloud of smoke and a deafening roar as the fire ripped through the wilderness. “You can hear just this consumption of fuel, just crackling and burning. And the hardest thing is you couldn’t see it because at the point the smoke was that thick,” he said.

Suicide prevention week brings out strong emotions from commissioners By Chris Hoff Mountaineer Contributing Writer Yesterday’s meeting of the County Commissioners had a strong focus on health. The meeting opened with a resolution to recognize September 5 through 11 as Suicide Prevention Week. Elizabeth Myers shared a story with the commissioners to explain her involvement in suicide prevention. Myers works at the Samaritan Counseling Center in Eagle, where a person came seeking help, who was suicidal. She had to call the police because there wasn’t another option, and though this person should have been taken to a hospital he didn’t want that, the police took him to jail. Well, the individual did no want to stay in the jail, and was released. Myers told the council, a week later this person were dead. All of the commissioners shared they had felt the loss of someone they knew committing suicide.

“I only ever had two uncles,” Commissioner Peter Runyon said. “And they both successfully committed suicide.” Commissioner Sara Fisher was openly emotional during the session, and later said it was because of the loss of a cousin. Other business That emotional topic was followed by approval of a resolution to assign to the Colorado Housing and Finance Authority the county’s Private Activity Bond allocation. The Private Activity Bond program enables the county government to work with a private business or person, to enable the sale of tax-free bonds. These bonds could be used to finance private investments like a new industrial development. The authority to issue these bonds comes from the federal government, with a limit of how much can be issued, and a time frame for their use. The resolution is seeking to transfer the ability to issue these bonds to the

Colorado Housing and Finance Authority to prevent them from being lost –– Eagle County has not used its full allotment. The commissioners yesterday also granted an inter-fund loan to the Eagle County Housing and Development Authority as part of the continuing Riverview Apartments rehab project, currently underway. The $432,000 loan will be from grant money passed down to local governments from the federal government. The Eagle County Housing and Development Authority is unable to receive grants from local or federal governments, and so is accepting the money in the form of an interest-free loan. The housing authority is expecting to pay it back over the next 55 years, and will be using the money to rehabilitate the Riverview Apartments. That money is part of a block of $6M in funding used to rehab the 72 units there. Riverview Apartments is Eagle County’s only section 8 housing complex.

County selects retirement provider The Eagle County Board of Commissioners yesterday announced their intent to pursue negotiations with Augustana Care Corp. to partner with the county on its continuum of care retirement community (CCRC) project. The process to select a partner has been underway since last spring. Augustana is a Minnesota-based nonprofit that owns and/or manages programs and services ranging from

independent and assisted living housing, to home care and adult day care agencies, to skilled nursing and memory care facilities. The selection follows a process which included a community roundtable; issuance of a Request for Proposals resulting in 11 responses; allday interviews of four finalists by a 25-member citizen panel; and visits by selection committee members to facilities run by three of the entities.

Celebrate Cogswell Gallery this month Art gallery is closing down after more than 30 years in Vail John Cogswell is announcing his retirement from the Cogswell Gallery at its Creekside location in Vail Village. You can stop by any time between now and the end of October to join him in celebrating a life full of original paintings, fine jewelry, and bronzes from all corners of the world. The Cogswell Gallery bills itself as Vail’s original art gallery with an incredible following of loyal artists and customers. In love with Vail’s natural beauty, fishing, hunting, and blue-bird powder days, Cogswell Gallery owners John and Patti Cogswell moved to Vail in 1976. They look back fondly at Vail’s tremendous amount of energy. A young town full of opportunity and excitement - they remember the sense of camaraderie among the first business owners, supporting each other while getting established, they say. Vail had also begun

to attract a sophisticated clientele, but had not a single art gallery. The Cogswells found what seemed to be a perfect niche for their product, original art and jewelry. They opened the Squash Blossom in 1972, and the Cogswell Gallery in 1980. The collection originally consisted of the finest in Southwestern paintings and sculpture, and over the years it grew into a mixture of the work of Western bronze artists, impressionist and Western painters. Native American artifacts, and furniture from Tibet, Indonesia, and Mexico were also featured. “As the Cogswell Gallery has grown, our artists have all matured and grown, and it’s been fun to watch that evolution,” John Cogswell said. Now, more than thirty years later, the face of Vail has changed. The Cogswell family is happy to nar-

row its focus to their other stores, The Squash Blossom in Vail and Colorado Springs and other worldly adventures. Retiring from an establishment with such a long history will not be easy, they say. The store has been a catalyst for relationships with amazing clients and loyal artists from all over the world. They have connected family heirlooms to excited owners and played an important part in decorating thousands of Valley homes. “The store has brought such great things to the community, our family, and my life,” John Cogswell said. “If someone is interested in purchasing the business, I would love to see the gallery continue under new ownership. I would be happy to consult with the new owners as they take over this wonderful and fulfilling business.”

The town of Avon and the Avon Historical Preservation Advisory Committee are working on stabilizing and restoring the Nottingham Power Plant. The Nottingham Power Plant is a self-constructed wooden water wheel that was built on the Eagle River in 1928 to generate electricity for personal use of the Nottingham family. Town staff will be clearing brush and debris, and will be removing an old wall from the area this week. In the spring of 2009, the Town of Avon received a $20,000 grant from the State Historical Society to stabilize and restore the power plant. This represents 75 percent of the total cost of this phase of the project. The total for stabilization is approximately $27,000 and the Historic Committee’s budget is covering the remaining 25 percent, or about $7,000. The goal of the project is to protect the Power Plant from further deterioration and maintain this piece of Avon history. Phase one of the project removed

Readers: Vote Van Beek for Sheriff We are adding our letter of support for James Van Beek as we have known him professionally for 20 years and understand how his qualities and qualifications would make him an excellent sheriff. We have known James and his family for the past 15 years and have watched him raise his family in Eagle County. Filling the position of sheriff with the best qualified person is critical to an organization, and experience means a great deal. James committed himself to a career with the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office, working his way up from a road deputy to the detective’s office. James went on to further his experience by accepting positions of training in Middle East countries in law enforcement. With this experience it has assisted James to better understand how to build the Eagle County Sherriff’s Office into a different and more resourceful county organization. We have found him to be easy to work with, as he approaches problems with a calm demeanor but is not afraid to take on tough issues. James is familiar with

the organization and knows each member’s strengths and weaknesses. That is a major advantage when transitioning the leadership within an organization. Just as important, he knows the community and other public safety and social agencies that work together to improve our quality of life. We cannot stress enough how vital it is to have management and leadership experience in law enforcement in order to effectively run an organization. It is not just the on the job training the makes the sheriff, but one that is willing to take life experience and bring it to work for those he works for. We have heard from others it is time to shake things up, certainly every organization has room to improve, but we don’t have a great deal of confidence in the current organization, and feel that James Van Beek is the person to move things forward.

everything they could into their cars and sped down narrow, winding roads to safety, encountering a vicious firestorm that melted the bumper of one couple’s van. Myers said yesterday afternoon that people told him they believed his house was destroyed. Authorities said they have counted at least 63 structures that have been lost based on a survey of half the area burned. It’s unclear how many were homes.

Don’t blame Harry

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says he knows who’s to blame for the struggling economy — and it’s not him. In his latest TV ad, the Democratic leader’s campaign blames former President George W. Bush, Wall Street and foreign oil prices for driving the economy into a rut. The 30-second spot answers Republican Sharron Angle, who faults Reid personally for Nevada’s nationleading unemployment, foreclosure and bankruptcy rates. A narrators asks in disbelief, “Sharron Angle is blaming Harry Reid? Come on.” In coming to his own defense, the ad represents a shift for Reid, whose recent ads have focused on depicting Angle as a dangerous extremist. He hits that theme again in the new ad, which closes by saying Angle has “extreme ideas.”

BP accepts blame

BP says it will pay for all the cleanup costs from a

massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico that could continue spewing crude for at least another week. How they plan on actually performing cleanup is still unknown. The company posted a fact sheet on its website today saying it took responsibility for the response to the Deepwater Horizon spill and would pay compensation for legitimate claims for property damage, personal injury and commercial losses. Chief executive Tony Hayward told ABC’s “Good Morning America” that BP is not responsible for the accident but is responsible for the oil and cleaning up the spill. He says the equipment that failed on the rig and led to the spill belonged to owner Transocean, not BP, which operated the rig.

Microbes are getting the credit

Government scientists studying the BP disaster are reporting the best possible outcome: Microbes are consuming the oil in the Gulf without depleting the oxygen in the water and creating “dead zones” where fish cannot survive. Outside scientists said this so far vindicates the difficult and much-debated decision by BP and the government to use massive amounts of chemical dispersants deep underwater to break up the oil before it reached the surface. Oxygen levels in some places where the BP oil [See THE UPDATE, page 8]

spilled are down by 20 percent, but that is not nearly low enough to create dead zones, according to the 95-page report released yesterday. In an unusual move, BP released 771,000 gallons of chemical dispersant about a mile deep, right at the spewing wellhead instead of on the surface, to break down the oil into tiny droplets. The idea was to make it easier for oil-eating microbes to do their job. But the risk was that the microbes would use up the oxygen in the water. So BP had to perform a delicate balancing act.

One in five Americans still lighting up

U.S. smoking rates continue to hold steady, at about one in five adults lighting up regularly, frustrated health officials reported yesterday. About 21 percent of U.S. adults were smokers in 2009, about the same percentage as the year before, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The smoking rate - which fell dramatically since the 1960s - has basically been flat since about 2004. Teen smoking, at nearly 20 percent, has not been improving lately, either. Health officials believe they’ve lost momentum because of cuts to anti-tobacco campaigns and shrewd marketing by cigarette companies. The new report sug-

gests that more than 46 million American adults still smoke cigarettes

Craigslist still under fire

National organizations are demanding that Craigslist remove its adult services section from its websites outside the U.S. after the company stopped posting the section on its U.S. site. A statement released yesterday by the Polaris Project, the Rebecca Project for Human Rights, the FAIR Fund, and Courtney’s House—all anti-child trafficking groups—said more than 250 Craigslist erotic pages remain active on the company’s non-U.S. webpages. Craigslist replaced the link to the adult services section with a “censored� bar Saturday after U.S. state attorneys general demanded its removal. They cited concerns that the website could not adequately screen out illegal ads promoting prostitution and child trafficking. Craigslist has not returned calls seeking comment.

Tax breaks now on Obama agenda

President Barack Obama will call on Congress to pass new tax breaks that would allow businesses to write off 100 percent of their new capital investments through 2011, the latest in a series of proposals the


[From page 8]

White House is rolling out in hopes of showing action on the economy ahead of the November elections. An administration official said the tax breaks would save businesses $200 billion over two years, allowing companies to have more cash on hand. The president will outline the proposal during a speech on the economy in Cleveland today. Amid an uptick in unemployment to 9.6 percent, and polls showing that the November election could be dismal for Democrats, Obama has promised to propose new steps to stimulate the economy. In addition to the business investment tax breaks, he will also call for a $50 billion infrastructure investment and a permanent expansion of research and development tax credits for companies. The proposals would require congressional approval, which is highly uncertain given Washington’s partisan atmosphere and the approaching midterm elections — a reality that’s not lost on the White House.

man, was denied parole yesterday by a three-member panel of New York state’s Parole Board Commission. It was Chapman’s sixth time before the parole board and his sixth denial. He will appear before them again in about two years, in August 2012. Chapman, now 55, is serving 20 years to life for the 1980 murder of Lennon, who was gunned down outside his apartment on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Chapman has been in the maximum security prison, the Attica Correctional Facility, for the past 29 years, since his conviction. Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono, has been in touch with the board over the years, asking them to keep Chapman behind bars when they have to consider his release. The board did not release its reasons for denying Chapman’s parole.

Prince Charles is hard to sustain

The government turned up the pressure yesterday on the head of a small Florida church who plans to burn copies of the Quran on Sept. 11, warning him that doing so could endanger U.S. troops and Americans everywhere. But the Rev. Terry Jones insisted he would go ahead with his plans, despite criticism from the top U.S. general in Afghanistan, the White House and the State Department, as well as a host of religious leaders. Jones, who is known for posting signs proclaiming that Islam is the devil’s religion, says the Constitution gives him the right to publicly set fire to the book that Muslims consider the word of God. Gen. David Petraeus warned yesterday in an e-mail to The Associated Press that “images of the burning of a Quran would undoubtedly be used by extremists in

The U.K.’s newspaper the Guardian is reporting Prince Charles is taking eight train carriages for a core party of 14 people to preach a message of sustainability on week-long tour of Britain. As a mode of transport, the royal train suits Prince Charles down to his hand-made brogues: resolutely old-fashioned, rather costly for the taxpayer, but just possibly ahead of its time, the paper reports.

Bobcat starts wildfire

A bobcat climbing a power pole got electrocuted and sparked a five-acre brush fire in California. County fire Capt. Dan Preston told the Ventura County Star that the bobcat was apparently chasing an owl or another bird when it touched the power lines, caught fire and fell to the ground in a rural area near Piru. More than 40 firefighters extinguished the blaze about five hours later. No one was hurt; the bobcat’s charred body was found beneath the power lines.

Daley to shut down in Chicago

Chicago Mayor Richard Daley says he’s not running for re-election after

more than 20 years in office. Daley said yesterday he’s been thinking about not running for several months and has become comfortable with his decision over the last several weeks. Daley says “it just feels right,” and that the time to move on “is now.” The 68-year-old Democrat has been Chicago’s mayor since 1989. He called the announcement “a personal decision,” and said he and his family now begin a “new phase of our lives.” His wife, Maggie, recently has been battling cancer. Daley was elected to the state Senate in 1972 and as Cook County state’s attorney in 1980. He became Chicago mayor in 1989 when he won a special mayoral election after the death of Mayor Harold Washington.

-----------------------------------------------------------ing a job at rival Oracle Corp. The complaint filed yesterday in a California state court comes a day after Oracle hired Hurd as co-president to help lead the database software maker as it tries to muscle in on more of HP’s turf. The lawsuit shows the growing rancor between the two companies, which are longtime partners that are now competing in the market for computer servers. HP claims that Hurd wouldn’t be able


[From page 9]

to perform the job at Oracle without spilling HP’s trade secrets and violating a confidentiality agreement. Hurd signed such an agreement as part of a severance package from HP that could top $40 million. The lawsuit mentions that Hurd was responsible for preparing HP’s strategic plans and was privy to a “highly confidential” analysis of Oracle’s competitiveness against HP.


began her family. Judy is survived by her daughter: Carrie Scopelleti Verdugo and son in law Ray Verdugo; son Dennis and daughter-in-law Lisa Scopelleti. Grand Children: Avalon and Jordan Scopelleti, Brice Peeler, Megan Peeler, Rocco and Gino Scopelleti. Great-Great Grand Children: Anthony Shallah, Emily Peeler, Emma Peeler. Step Grand Children: Ethan Peeler, Evan Peeler, Ian Peeler, Alijah Verdugo, Hope Verdugo. Judy moved to Vail from Huntington Beach, Calif., in 1978 to start a new life for herself and her 15-year-old son, Ronnie. She began her hotel career at Manor Vail Lodge in the reservations department. In 1979, she went to the Holiday Inn Château Vail as director of sales until 1982 at which time she became the director of sales for The Lions Square Lodge in Lionshead and was there until 1988. It was at this time that Judy left the Vail Valley for the first time to be with her family in California while she fought her battle with breast cancer surgery and recovery. Judy came to back to “her beautiful mountains” as director of sales for the Evergreen Lodge at Vail from April of 1993 until December of 2002. Due to failing health from her diabetic condition, Judy decided reluctantly to sell her home at the Reserve and move back to California to live with her family. However it didn’t take long for her to realize how very much she missed being a “mountain woman,” and longed to come back to Vail. As luck would have it, a long time Vail friend in need of a live-in helper due to an accident called Judy and -- three days later -- Judy was back in Vail and destined never to leave again. Judy

was hired by the Cordillera Lodge and Spa as administrative assistant to general manager Chris Hanen and was as happy as any one little old lady could be. Judy was an active and generous volunteer throughout all of her years in Vail. She gave her time to so many of Vail’s charitable organizations and events that it would be impossible to list them all. Most recently, she volunteered for the Teva Mountain games in Vail and gleefully reported that she thought she was the oldest volunteer at the event. Judy was an avid tennis player in her younger days. Up until her declining vision in recent years kept her off the mountain, she skied almost every weekend, went snowshoeing, hiking and speed walking. She was a huge personality in a tiny little package with a unique laugh, a bear hug that said “I mean this from the bottom of my heat with no strings attached,” and she could out cuss a truck driver and get away with it. Judy was the thread that connected and held together, often vicariously, hundreds of lives spanning more than 20 years. A memorial get-together is planned for September 11, 2010 at Manor Vail Lodge in Vail and organizers are planning something special, so please RSVP if possible.

American Constitution Party candidate, a move that has essentially split the Republican vote, likely handing victory to Democratic challenger John Hickenlooper. The lawsuit alleges that Tancredo violated Colorado elections laws when he entered the gubernatorial race as a third-party American Constitution Party candidate. The lawsuit points to Colorado Revised Statute 1-4-1304, which states that minor political party candidates must be registered as affiliated with the minor party no later than the first business day of the January immediately preceding the general election. Tancredo would have needed to be registered with the American Constitution Party on Jan. 1, 2010; he did not switch his party affiliation until July. The Colorado elections law also states that minor party candidates must not have been registered as a member of a major political party at any time following the first business day of the January immediately preceding the general election for which the candidate was nominated. Tancredo was registered with the Republican Party as late as July. Olson, a member of the Jefferson County Citizens Budget Review Panel and organizer of the Golden Government Watch Meetup Group, told the Denver Daily News yesterday that the lawsuit is not about politics, but about the law. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve known Tom Tancredo for a long time, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know Dan Maes. Individuals had nothing to do with it as far as I was concerned,â&#x20AC;? said Olson, who added that she has not yet decided who she is voting for in the gubernatorial race. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People have a passion, and my passion is the rule of law.â&#x20AC;? The Colorado elections law, however, does make exceptions for the constitution or bylaws of the minor political party. But the lawsuit argues that the American Constitution Partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bylaws defer to state elections laws â&#x20AC;&#x153;to the extent they apply to the external requirements and deadlines of the election process.â&#x20AC;? Westfall takes that to mean that there are no exceptions in the American Constitution Partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bylaws for party affiliation deadlines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The law is very clear that Tom Tancredo was not eligible to be a candidate for office for a minor political party so long as he was affiliated with a major political party on the first business day of January of this year under state law,â&#x20AC;? said Westfall. Westfall said his position as the treasurer of the Colorado Republican Party is not a conflict of interest because he is simply acting as an attorney with experience in elections law. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have no personal preference at this point,â&#x20AC;? said Westfall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have an ethical obligation to my clients to pursue their interests, and their interests are to have the American Constitution Party follow the rules.â&#x20AC;? Plaintiffs first attempted to have the lawsuit filed on Friday in Jefferson County District Court, but a judge ruled that the case be moved to Denver District Court because the proper venue for the Secretary of Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office is Denver District Court.

LOCAL STUDENTS AT WHITE HOUSE possible.” The first lady closed by saying to the children, “Keep it up. If you’ve done it in the White House, you can do it anywhere.”

Dance lessons at the White House Earlier yesterday, at the afternoon workshops, young girls in leotards, their hair tightly wrapped in buns, sprawled on the shiny East Room floor, stretching their legs into splits as they warmed up. Jamison watched with a smile on her face as current Ailey dancers then taught the kids excerpts from Ailey’s “Revelations,” one of the most beloved works in all of modern dance. “Wow,” said Damian Woetzel, director of the event and a former star of New York City Ballet, after the Ailey work-

shop. “Now you’ve danced in the White House!” he told the kids. Though the Obamas have spotlighted many varieties of music since they came to the White House — there have been events celebrating Latin music, rock, jazz, country, classical and Broadway show tunes — the dance world might have felt ignored, until now. But Michelle Obama seems to be a dance fan. Jamison noted proudly that the Obamas and their daughters spent one of their first nights out as first family taking in an Ailey performance at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. – The Associated Press contributed to this report
