multi-day shows – each limited to 500 people per day – between the months of May and October. The approval will also allow the creation of an amphitheater at the site of the old lodge building that burned in 2007, according to Mauriello Planning Group, who consulted on

yesterday’s proposal. Each of the commissioners stated that they are in favor of the application at the hearing, but asked that the proposal be tabled to next Tuesday so that the conditions of approval could be properly amended following minor revisions requested by the commissioners. The BOCC eliminated any conditions requiring turn lanes on Hwy 131, the paving of Trough Road and the dedication of a right-of-way easement for Trough Road, as recommended

Shotokan style in Vail


A September rally faltered on the stock market yesterday as worries returned about Europe’s economy. The Dow Jones industrial average closed down 17.64 at 10,526.49. The S&P 500 closed at 1121.10 down 0.80, and the Nasdaq closed up 4.06 at 2289.77.

Hiker freed by Iran after bail deal

In just a few dizzying hours, American Sarah Shourd exchanged a cell in Tehran’s Evin Prison for a private jet crossing the Persian Gulf yesterday, after an apparent diplomatic deal to cover a $500,000 bail and secure a release that seemed in jeopardy from the start. Shourd was met by her mother and U.S. diplomats at a royal airfield in the capital of Oman, which U.S. officials say played a critical role in organizing the bail payment and assuring it did not violate American economic sanctions on Iran. Shourd stepped off the private Omani jet and into the arms of her mother in their first embrace since a brief visit in May overseen by Iranian authorities - and her first day of freedom in more than 13 months. Shourd smiled broadly as they strolled arm-inarm through the heat of the late summer night along the Gulf of Oman. [See THE UPDATE, page 10]

Third-party gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo will stay on the November ballot, a Denver District Court judge announced yesterday. The legality of Tancredo’s candidacy was challenged before the court earlier this month, when two Republican voters, Joseph Harrington and Marian Olsen, filed suit against Tancredo. “The high-paid Republican lawyers managed to present a case that was weaker than their candidate,” Tancredo said yesterday in a statement. “Their attempt to impede my candidacy has now failed in the courts as well as on the campaign trail. Now our focus must turn to the liberal mayor of the sanctuary city of Denver.” Because Tancredo did not become a certified candidate for the American Constitutional Party until July 27, the lawsuit claimed that he was an illegitimate candidate. Lawyers for the complainants pointed out that, under Colorado election law, candidates must be reg[See TANCREDO, page 18]

To the Eagle Valley community, Many of you attended the Eagle Valley Community Fund Rummage Sale in August and ended up with some great bargains! It took a lot of volunteers to help organize and set up for the sales... we appreciate the hours they donate and the shopping that you do. About 65 non-profit groups benefit from the revenues generated by the Rummage Sale. ‘Sue’s Cafe’ is my project and many folks stopped and chatted while getting coffee, donuts, baked goods, lemonade and ice tea. There are many organizations and people who make this Cafe a great success and we want to express our appreciation to them for their continued support. Folks/companies who were financial sponsors included: Carl Dietz’s Management Co; Gallegos Masonry; Fred Otto; Bob and Helen Fritch; Bruce Allen; Oran Palmateer; Swallow Oil; Warner Developments

Inc; 4-Eagle Ranch; Segerberg, Mayhew Architects; Wells Fargo Bank; Johnson, Kunkel & Assoc; Black Bear Real Estate; Castle Peak Veterinary Services; and the Eagle Valley Enterprise. They are awesome! Stores that furnished food/drink items were: City Market, Safeway and Village Market. They sure helped make my shopping for supplies easy. Now for the goodies everyone gobbled up, including cookies and other baked items: B/C Coyote Cafe; Gypsum Columbine Market; Minturn Turntable; Avon Columbine Bakery; and B/C Blue Moose. Must tell you, I’m not a sweet eater but I did have to indulge in those scrumptious baked goods. All of these contributors made ‘Sue’s Cafe’ a great success in support of the Rummage Sale. My heartfelt thanks goes out to them! Sue Mott, EVCF board member

Lisa Isom in support of Van Beek

Dear Editor, I am writing on behalf of James van Beek who will be running for Eagle County Sheriff this fall. To be fair, I should note that James is my brother-in-law. However, before I would agree to vote for James or even collect names to get him on the ballot, I told him I needed to be convinced – just like any other Eagle County voter. I’ve had an opportunity to hear his views on everything from immigration to marijuana dispensaries and I think he has a very fair and balanced impression of the issues affecting our

county. Most importantly, he has stated that his personal views don’t matter when it comes to following county/state/federal laws. The fact that he is running as an independent candidate speaks volumes to me as well. I don’t think that a person elected to enforce our county’s laws should be put in office based on party affiliation. James has a remarkable and unique track record in law enforcement. I especially appreciate his work with the UN in Kosovo and Afghanistan. He has witnessed and participated in various forms of po-

lice training all over the world and I think he is in a position to bring “best practices� back to our valley. James speaks several languages fluently and has a love for other cultures that I think will serve him well in our world-renown resort community. James has also shown dedication to working with youth locally through the Eagle County Sheriff’s Department when he worked there as an officer and an investigator. I think as our community grows and diversifies, it becomes more and [See ISOM, page 18]

Vail police arrest theft suspects Vail Police arrested two theft suspects after responding to a report of a coat stolen from the Avalon clothing store at 1:04 p.m. Sept. 11. With a description of two suspects provided by the store clerk, officers contacted two males that fit the description in the parking lot of a nearby lodge shortly after the theft was reported. After completing an investigation, officers recovered

the coat as well as other items believed to be stolen from additional businesses in Vail. Victor Rodriguez, 67, of Canoga Park, Calif., and Juan Roman, 63, of Alta Loma, Calif., were arrested and charged with two counts of class four felony theft.

Lives Lost and Found in America Documentary film ‘Lost in Woonsocket’ playing at Cinebistro tonight Normand Cartier was an alcoholic and drug addict, living in a tent in the snow, in Woonsocket, Rhode Island. He did it for years. On a hillside about a football field length away lived his son, whom Cartier had not seen since he fell to drinking and drugs. Cartier was too drunk to realize it. His son had seen the tent for years, but did not know who was living in it. Cartier is the subject of the documentary film, “Lost in Woonsocket.” The film plays tonight at the new Cinebistro Theater in the Solaris building in Vail Village with showtimes at 6:30, 7 and 7:30 p.m. It’s a free special event and will have a special guest question and answer session following the film. But it won’t be the first major showing of “Lost in Woonsocket” here in Eagle County. Cartier brought the film and some inspiration and encouragement to the county jail in May for a screening and a little conversation. Cartier is an immovable force behind a grassroots effort sweeping America to help the homeless and addicted, Lost and Found in America. He’s one of two central people in the film. Cartier is still clean and sober, years later. Mark is not. Some stories end happy. Some don’t. Familiar faces, the same story A few dozen people are lined up in the front couple rows in the jail. They can recite it like a mantra: “My name is *****, and I’m an alcoholic.” Their names are not important, but you know

some of them. Good guys who made a couple bad choices. Before you can say, “You have the right to remain silent, you’re in jail, then before a judge, then wondering how a good man went this bad. One guy wants to be a chef, but got sidetracked by alcohol. He was clean just a few days and was assigned to work at a local wine festival. All weekend, women offered him wine and themselves. He resisted both, because one leads to the other and he’s trying to change his life. A local business owner tried to drink himself out of his business and his marriage. He’s still in both. One guy is in work clothes and boots, splattered with drywall plaster. One guy is in a suit. Cartier is not surprised. He goes to AA meetings with doctors and lawyers.

holics Anonymous partner was a Basque sheep herder. They are in this together. “I cannot do it alone, but we can make it together,” Cartier said. Someone has to believe, but more importantly these recovering alcoholics have to believe in themselves. Mark’s dad thought his son was dead, but was wrong. Normand’s kids thought their dad was dead, but were wrong. “I’m gonna do it and I’m gonna make it stick,” said Normand, as he staggered into detox, yet again. “This is always waiting for us,” answers Mark, standing outside a liquor store on a cold winter night. Everyone in the room knew the 12 steps by heart. Cartier joked that he used to think the 12 steps were a roadside sobriety test and that Alcoholics Anonymous was a place he could drink where no one knew him. Some stories end happy. Some don’t.

Lost and found In Woonsocket, Rhode Island, 2006, a television crew decided that the way to help people was to connect them with one another. Two guys, Josh and Andre, drove around in a rusty old green Ford F-150 pickup truck, picking people at random and helping them by putting them together with other people. In Alcoholics Anonymous they tell you, “There are no coincidences. It’s God’s way of being anonymous.” It became an A&E television show that ran only 10 episodes. They edited it into a documentary film and its impact is still being felt. It sparked a pay-it-forward grassroots movement that’s still picking up steam. Normand has helped hundreds of people break the chains of alcohol and drugs. Mark, his partner in the Watch the screen and you’re struck by one overriding fact: We’re all this close to disaster. Lose a job, lose your house, lose your family. It hurts to fall and alcohol numbs the pain. It also clouds the road back. Some stories end happy. Some don’t. “If I can do it ...” Normand didn’t see the movie until he was supposed to talk about it at a film festival. He hadn’t been clean and sober all that long. He was 35 years on the road into darkness, and is still on the road out. Compared to where he’d been, the road out is a street paved with gold. He was 122 pounds and a crackhead [See WOONSOCKET, page 19]

Vail, Avon police joining winter tire tread campaign Free safety inspections, discounts on tires through Oct. 31 Beginning this week and continuing through Oct. 31, tire tread inspections will be taking place throughout Eagle County to help motorists determine if their tires are safe for winter driving. In particular, representatives from the Vail and Avon police departments and the Colorado State Patrol will be conducting vehicle safety checks. A safety check will consist of an inspection of a vehicle’s lights, windshield wipers and tires. Inspectors will concentrate on the overall condition of a vehicle’s tires. If a vehicle needs new tires, coupons will be distributed for discounts from participating tire stores in Eagle County. The Tread Safe Campaign is being initiated by Vail Police Officer Rafael Caballero, who says the goal of the campaign is to have proper tires and winter equipment on vehicles to help reduce accidents during the winter months and year-round. “Throughout the years, we’ve had accidents in Eagle County where the primary cause of the accident was lack of tire tread depth and condition of the tires,� says Caballero. The acci-

dents ranged from minor fender benders to accidents resulting in death. Motor vehicles in Colorado are required to have a tire tread depth of more than 2/32� measured in any two tread grooves at three locations equally spaced around the circumference of the tire. During the checkpoints, officers will use a tire tread depth meter to determine if the tires are safe. Once the vehicle safety checks have been completed, the agencies will be checking tire treads on vehicles throughout the season. At that point, motorists with low tire tread depth could receive a citation for improper equipment on their vehicle, according to Caballero. �We’re hoping to raise awareness through these checkpoints and to let motorists know of the danger of having unsafe tires. It could save a life.� Motorists may also stop by the Vail and Avon police departments at any time to get their tires checked by officers. For more information, contact Officer Caballero at 479-2200.

140 vehicles found without chains; no citations issued Troopers from the Colorado State Patrol and representatives from the state’s Motor Carrier Safety Section, along with officers from the Vail Police Department conducted chain law inspections of commercial trucks last week as part of an overall educational effort. The checks were used to determine if the truckers were in compliance with a state law requiring them to have snow chains in their possession from Sept. 1 to May 31.

The inspections took place Sept. 9 and 10 on Interstate 70 in the eastbound chain-up area at mile marker 178 in Vail. Of the 817 trucks checked, 677, or 83 percent, of the trucks were carrying chains, while 140 were not, a 17 percent noncompliance rate. No citations were issued. Vail Police Chief Dwight Henninger says the two-day inspections were a good reminder to the trucking industry of the need to carry

chains to ensure safe passage over Vail Pass during the winter. Henninger also thanked the Colorado State Patrol for its proactive education in advance of the winter season. A second inspection will take place Sept. 23-24 in which citations will be issued. The law carries a penalty of $69.50 for non-compliance.

Men’s winner Robby Zehner, also a Rocky Mountain local, will join the Team later in the season after the men shifted their fall session from nearby Portillo to Mt. Hutt in New Zealand. Zehner, who also captured the men’s title in 2009, spent a week with the men’s speed team last fall in Portillo. “NASTAR is where ski racing begins,” said two-time Olympian Steven Nyman, who served as a pace setter at the 2010 championships. “Nature Valley and NASTAR support alpine skiing from roots to World Cup and I’m proud to be a part of it. Everyone from serious racers to families can ski together with NASTAR, whether you’re 90 or two, we’re all on the same, course, same hill, just having fun ski racing.” “We are excited to provide this amazing opportunity to Jeanette and Robby,” said Nature Valley’s Market-

Schleper, Olympians Hailey Duke, Resi Stiegler and Vonn, the reigning Audi FIS World Champ who plans to rotate over to Valle Nevado from speed training in Portillo. “Nature Valley NASTAR is an amazing experience for thousands of recreational skiers, bringing the exhilaration of our sport to them at their own ability level,” said the U.S. Ski Team’s Chief Revenue and Marketing Officer Andrew Judelson. “The opportunity for these Nature Valley NASTAR champions to experience life at a U.S. Ski Team camp will be something they will never forget. Our athletes are proud to be involved.” “My goals for last season were simply to have fun, learn something and get better,” said Saylor, a USSA Masters racer out of Copper Mountain. “I accomplished them all, but never expected to win such an incredible opportunity with the U.S. Ski Team.” Born in British Columbia, Saylor moved to Aspen at 15 and rose up through the junior ranks before deciding to return to Canada for a shot at the national team. A Canadian downhill title in 1976 earned her that shot, which she held through the late seventies when injuries resulted in low finishes on the World Cup. “I got hurt, ran out of money and just like that I was [See NASTAR WINNERS, page 18]

THE UPDATE -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------applies only to the deepwater Gulf of Mexico. Yet enFDA questions safety, Czechs ban Google from ergy exploration in the Gulf’s shallow waters has come a virtual standstill as drillers grapple with tougher effectiveness of diet pill tofederal expanding ‘Street View’ rules since the spill.

Federal health officials dealt a surprising blow yesterday to an experimental diet pill that was thought to offer a safer way to shed pounds after decades of dangerous side effects reported with weight loss drugs. The Food and Drug Administration said the pill, developed by Arena Pharmaceutical, produced minimal weight loss while raising concerns about heart damage, depression and other problems. Shares of Arena Pharmaceuticals Inc. fell $2.72, or 40 percent, to $4.13. The company’s lorcaserin is one of three drugs racing to be the first new prescription weight loss pill approved by the FDA in more than a decade. While lorcaserin’s weight loss results trail competitors, analysts have predicted it would win FDA approval thanks to a stellar safety profile. However, in a review posted online, FDA scientists said the drug barely met the agency’s threshold for weight loss effectiveness and raised safety concerns about side effects, including heart valve disease and psychiatric problems.

New rules slow Gulf drilling pace in shallow water

The drilling moratorium enacted after the BP oil spill

The pace at which regulators grant drilling permits in water less than 500 feet deep has slowed sharply this summer, an Associated Press analysis of government data shows. Just four out of 10 shallow-water drilling applications have been approved from June through August; 15 applications were sought and approved in the same period last year.

Corn syrup producers want sweeter name: corn sugar The makers of high fructose corn syrup want to sweeten its image with a new name: corn sugar. The Corn Refiners Association applied yesterday to the federal government for permission to use the name on food labels. The group hopes a new name will ease confusion about the sweetener, which is used in soft drinks, bread, cereal and other products. Americans’ consumption of corn syrup has fallen to a 20-year low on consumer concerns that it is more harmful or more likely to cause obesity than ordinary sugar, perceptions for which there is little scientific evidence. However, some scientists have linked consumption of full-calorie soda - the vast majority of which is sweetened with high fructose corn syrup - to obesity.

Authorities in the Czech Republic have banned Google Inc. from continuing in its mapping feature “Street View” in the eastern European country. The Czech Office for Personal Data Protection says Google has not been granted a necessary registration for the activity. Spokeswoman Hana Stepankova declined to give details yesterday. The office plans to speak about the case next week. The office has been investigating Google for failing to meet necessary requirements needed to collect data used for “Street View” since April. The U.S. Internet giant has come under fire from authorities across Europe, including Germany, over concerns that it violated people’s privacy while taking shots of city streets. Google acknowledged the privacy breach in an apology in the spring.

The former Wham! singer pleaded guilty last month to driving under the influence and possession of cannabis following a July 4 collision between his Range Rover and a Snappy Snaps store in north London. District Judge John Perkins told the singer he had taken a “dangerous and unpredictable mix” of prescription drugs and marijuana.

AZ Green Party ‘sham’ candidates to stay on ballot

A judge yesterday allowed contested Green Party candidates in Arizona to remain on the November ballot, denying a request that they be kicked off because Republicans allegedly recruited them to siphon votes from Democrats. Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Dean Fink found that former Republican lawmaker Steve May recruited several of the 11 disputed candidates in order to take votes away from Democrats. “The court has no hesitation in finding that each of these candidates was recruited in bad faith with a purpose to confuse the voting public,” Fink wrote. But the judge also found that the candidates got on the ballot legally and appear to have a legitimate desire to run, even if they were recruited with deceptive motives.

Bill Maher gets Hollywood Walk of Fame star

Political satirist Bill Maher has been immortalized in Hollywood. With Larry King and “Family Guy” producer Seth MacFarlane standing nearby, HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” talk show host unveiled his Walk of Fame star yesterday outside the W Hotel at the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street. Maher, who once hosted the late-night talk show “Politically Incorrect,” said he wanted to thank “George Bush, Sarah Palin and the pope.” It was the 2,417th star dedicated on the famous sidewalk.

Police in San Jose, Costa Rica, said the couple were briefly detained at the airport for illegal arms possession after security officers found two unloaded handguns in their luggage. Pratt and Montag hadn’t declared the weapons and lacked permits to have them in Costa Rica, police said. After questioning, they were released and allowed to leave the country, police said Monday.

Cholera strikes West Africa killing hundreds

Patients jammed rudimentary clinics and health workers in surgical masks sprayed anti-bacterial solution on muddy paths as the government struggled to contain a cholera epidemic that has killed nearly 800 Nigerians in two months. The worst epidemic in Nigeria in 19 years is spreading to Cameroon, Chad and Niger, where it has killed hundreds more. At a maternity clinic and a nearby hospital in Ganjuwa, patients with blank eyes lay contorted on fouled mattresses from severe diarrhea triggered by the cholera. Small children laying under traditional brightly colored cloth were hooked up to IV tubes as doctors tried to save them by rehydrating them intravenously. As more and more patients arrived and occupied all the beds in the wards, doctors had to put them into storerooms and concrete hallways wet with human waste.

Restroom spies say we’re Spencer: Gun detainment washing hands more often brings him, Heidi together Swine flu may have scared us straight, or maybe

Spencer Pratt says his 12-hour detainment at a Costa Rica airport for arms possession has given him a chance at reconciliation with wife Heidi Montag. Montag stood by him during what he called the “wildest day ever of either of our lives” and sparked hope that she might drop her divorce filing, Pratt said Monday. “It was clear we’re soulmates. I don’t see any reason we can’t get back on track,” he said in Los Angeles after Saturday’s incident.

we’re finally listening to our mothers. Whatever the reason, Americans are washing their hands more often, suggests the latest check by researchers who spy on people using public restrooms. Checks in four big cities last month found 85 percent of public restroom users washing their hands, up from 77 percent in 2007. It’s the best rate since these periodic surveys began in 1996.

Eurozone economy shows signs of slowing down

Europe got further evidence that its unexpectedly strong economic recovery is slowing, with the news that German investor confidence fell sharply in September and eurozone industrial production unexpectedly stagnated during July. The twin pieces of economic data have reinforced the view that the eurozone economy, which grew by a quarterly rate of 1 percent in the second quarter of the year - equivalent to an annualized rate of over 4 percent - is inevitably coming off the boil in the wake of faltering economic growth in the U.S. The news had both European stocks and the euro in retreat yesterday.

Reggie Bush to forfeit Heisman USC back ends Heisman Trust’s deliberation over 2005 winner

In this Dec. 10, 2005, photo, Southern California tailback back Reggie Bush gives his acceptance speech as the winner of the Heisman Trophy award. Bush said Tuesday that he is forfeiting his college football’s top individual award. AP Photo.

Before they could take it from him, Reggie Bush gave it away. The New Orleans Saints’ running back released a statement Tuesday saying he would give back his Heisman Trophy won in 2005 while he was at Southern California. “While this decision is heart-breaking, I find solace in knowing that the award was made possible by the support and love of so many,” Bush said. “Those are gifts that can never be taken away.” USC was hit with heavy sanctions by the NCAA this summer after it determined Bush had received improper benefits. The NCAA ruled that Bush was ineligible for the 2005 season, which opened the possibility that the Heisman Trophy Trust would take back the award. One of the few guidelines given to Heisman Trophy voters is that a player must be in compliance with NCAA rules to be eligible for the trophy. The Heisman Trophy Trust, based in New York, had said it would have to consider what to do about Bush, who won in a landslide vote over Texas quarterback Vince Young.

There was no immediate word from the Heisman Trust if the award would be vacated or given to Young. “My opinion would be; I would love for the Heisman Trust to look at a revote or give it to the second guy, which therefore would be Vince,” Texas coach Mack Brown said. Allegations that Bush and his family had received hundreds of thousands of dollars in gifts from two California-based marketing agents were first reported in September 2006, months after Bush had already been drafted No. 2 overall by the New Orleans Saints. The NCAA and Pac-10 began investigating Bush and the USC football program soon after, and the running back immediately denied any wrongdoing. Bush played from December 2004 through the 2005 season. USC beat Oklahoma in the BCS title game on Jan. 4, 2005, and won 12 games during Bush’s Heisman-winning 2005 season, which ended with a loss to Texas in the 2006 BCS title game. It’s the first time college football’s top award was returned by a recipient.

McDaniels re-units with Maroney The Broncos announced yesterday that they picked up running back Laurence Maroney from The New England Patriots. Each team received an undisclosed 2011 draft pick in the deal that reunites the Patriots first-round choice in 2006 with Josh McDaniels, New England’s offensive coordinator before he became Denver’s head coach last season. The trade is pending a physical examination. The Patriots gave up on Maroney after he failed to

emerge as a solid No. 1 back since being drafted out of Minnesota. He was limited by a shoulder injury to three games in 2008. In four years with New England, he rushed for 2,430 yards and 21 touchdowns. Maroney led New England’s rushers with 757 yards and nine touchdowns last season and ran for a career-high 835 yards in 2007. He should have a greater opportunity to play with the Broncos than with the Pats.

The Broncos rushed for 89 yards and one touchdown on 25 carries in their 24-17 loss to Jacksonville in Sunday’s opener. Moreno, who missed all of the preseason, gained 60 yards on 15 carries with one touchdown, and Buckhalter, who had just a handful of carries before the opener, ran six times for 15 yards.

Mark Cavendish talks of Green Jersey on rest day Despite notching five stage wins at the Tour de France, Britain’s Mark Cavendish missed out on the points classification title, but is now optimistic about getting the Spanish Vuelta equivalent. With five days remaining Cavendish has an 18-point lead in the category over Spain’s Joaquim Rodriguez, the overall race leader. “The points classification wasn’t an objective at all when I came here and it came as a surprise when I first got it without winning a stage,” the 25-year-old Cavendish said in a Reuters article Tuesday. “But the green jersey’s definitely a goal for me now. There are two definite sprint stages left, at Salamanca and Madrid, and another one that maybe I could do something in at Toledo.” “I think in any case Rodriguez is more interested in the overall race so I’m feeling pretty confident,” added Cavendish. The Briton has notched 22 stage wins on the Tours of France, Spain and Italy, including two in this year’s Vuelta, and is keen to secure his first victory in the points competition of a topthree stage race. “I’ve never won that points jersey before and it would be good to do it,” said Cavendish. Cavendish, who rides for UCI ProTeam Team HTC-Columbia, has 22 career stage wins on the Tour de France, Spain and Italy.

Cyclist Larpe banned two years for doping

French cyclist Mickael Larpe has been suspended for two years by the French federation after testing positive for the blood-booster EPO. Larpe, from the second-tier French Roubaix-Lille-Metropole team, was provisionally suspended by the International Cycling Union in May after failing a doping test during a French professional league race in March. The French federation says the rider will appeal the ban at the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Switzerland. Mickael Larpe Larpe also has reportedly been issued the preliminary charges for allegedly writing fake medical prescriptions and using and selling banned substances.

Tour of Lombardy to include Team Radioshack

Tour of Lombardy organizers have included co-owner Lance Armstrong’s RadioShack team in their entry list for the race next month. The announcement was made Tuesday. Radioshack had been set to appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport to rule on whether race organizer RCS Sport broke a contract by excluding the team from the Oct. 16 race. RadioShack had declined to compete in the Giro d’Italia, which is also organized by RCS Sport, in May. The Tour of Lombardy is the final chance for riders and teams to earn points in the International Cycling Union’s world rankings. RadioShack, which was denied an invitation to the Spanish Vuelta, is 11th of 30 teams. Armstrong announced his retirement after the Tour de France in July.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not likely that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see groups like Leftover Salmon or String Cheese play the State Bridge venue â&#x20AC;&#x201C; those guys only play a handful of shows per year these days â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but you will see several side projects and spinoffs like Great American Taxi, Kyle Hollingsworth and others typical to the Vail Valley. The Stage Bridge venue was acquired last October by Doug Moog, a relative newcomer to the Vail Valley, who pre-

viously owned a theater in Kent, Ohio. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never had the privilege of seeing a show at State Bridge, but he has the passion and wherewithal to bring it back to life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had heard of State Bridge, and being in the promotional business, I was certainly interested in looking at it,â&#x20AC;? Moog said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bringing in people that have a long history with the venue and enthusiasm for it, I decided to plunge ahead and see what we could develop out there â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so


out of ski racing and into college,â&#x20AC;? said Saylor. After raising two children though ski racing with the heralded U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association club program of Team Summit, she found herself back in the sport when her daughter Erika started college at the University of Northern Colorado. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Back then, only the best Canadian guys could go to Chile to train in the summer, so I never got a chance. Who would have thought my chance would come when my own kids are in their twenties? Nateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 26 now and Erika is 22 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re both psyched for me. This is just

awesome,â&#x20AC;? she said. Although Zehner had to take a rain check on South America, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than excited to see where the Team takes him later in the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was scheduled to leave with them next Thursday,â&#x20AC;? Zehner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Nature Valley, NASTAR and the U.S. Ski Team are creating a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Plan Bâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and I might get to travel to Europe or Canada instead and hang with the team. Portillo last year was an amazing experience and it was my goal all winter to win the trip again. Thanks to Nature Valley and NASTAR, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll basically have a

TANCREDO STILL ON THE TICKET istered members of the party they are running to represent by January 1 of that year. Tancredoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense argued that the same election laws place the responsibility of vetting candidates on the parties themselves, and that, because the ACP approved Tancredo, he should be considered a legitimate candidate and remain on the ballot. After considering the legal arguments and the potential consequences of removing Tancredo from the ballot, Denver District Judge William Hood, decided that the approval of Tancredoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s party was enough to make him a legitimate candidate. The decision comes as a disappointment to local Republicans, as Tancredoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

presence in the race will create a rift in conservative voters. The Republican candidate, Dan Maes, has lost many of his supporters since winning his partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nomination in the primary August 10. After being saddled with record campaign finance violation fines and facing a number of scandals and political missteps, Maes has been considered by many within his own party to not be a viable candidate. The decision to allow Tancredo to remain in the race came the same day as a new Rasmusson poll while placed him four points ahead of the Republican candidate, Dan Maes, with 25 percent of the vote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the decision I expected, but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the decision I was hoping for,â&#x20AC;?

said Randy Milhoan, chair of the Eagle County GOP. Tancredoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presence in the race gives a distinct advantage to Democratic candidate Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, Milhoan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hickenlooper has to be the odds-on favorite to win that race now,â&#x20AC;? he said. While Maes does have a loyal base, he said, those voters are neither numerous enough nor rich enough to carry him into the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mansion. Rick Collins, a law professor at the University of Colorado and a recognized expert on state election laws, said the decision by the court to allow Tancredo to stay on the ballot was typical. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Judges are very reluctant to take candidates off the ballot,â&#x20AC;? Collins said in an

interview before the decision was announced. If Tancredo had been taken off the ballot, county clerks across Colorado would be faced with making last-minute changes to the ballots, many of which have already been printed. Colorado is required by federal law to mail ballots to citizens living overseas before Election Day. Last-minute changes to the ballot could have created huge burdens for county clerks, and could even have kept some from meeting the federal mandate. Ballot changes would not have been any serious concern for Eagle County, said County Clerk and Recorder Teak Simonton, because the county only has 104 registered overseas voters.

when he went into detox for the last time. He lost his job, his wife and his his kids in a month. “You can’t take someone like me and spin dry me for seven days and expect it to stick,” he told the crowd in the jail rec room. “I am the face of recovery to show that it does work.” Normand looks into the crowd of hopeful faces. He sets his jaw, takes a quick breath and says in his thick New England accent that if he can do it, so can they. He says stuff like: “When I start drinking, the other stuff comes knocking.” And ...

On his friends still drinking: “Since I’ve been clean, I’ve buried four friends.” And … No one else in his family drinks: “I’m the only experiment in my family that went wrong.” And … Can someone have just one beer, just to relax? “One is too much and 1,000 is never enough.” And … The pain his drinking caused his family and friends: “I cannot change the wreckage of my past.” Some stories end happy. This is one of those stories.
