Local rider is on a tear

Pro cyclocross racer Jake Wells won back to back events last weekend, looks to big competitions in Seattle and Las Vegas By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer After taking second to fellow local Jay Henry at the both the Colorado State Championship and Vail’s mountain bike race series, Jake Wells’ bike season is just getting started. 2010 was his best year yet on the cross-country mountain bike circuit, but that was just a warm-up for the cyclocross season, which Wells considers his primary discipline. Cyclocross is like mountain biking, except riders use a road bike outfitted with big, treaded tires. The racecourse features steep hills and obstacles requiring the rider to quickly dismount and carry the bike while navigating obstructions, then remount. The cyclocross season starts in the early fall and runs through mid winter, and competitors are subseLEFT: Local pro cyclocross racer Jake Wells at the Boulder Cup last year.

back and fourth with a half-lap to go, when Krughoff had the misfortune of a slow leak in his tire, which forced him to run up a hill that Wells was able to ride. “I guess it paid off to have my mishap and misfortune early in the race, while those other guys had issues towards the end of the race,” Wells said.

quently forced to deal with changing conditions along with the changing seasons. The National Championships are held in December on a frosty, frozen course and attract 1,600 riders from around the country. Wells took 12th last year. Racing action in Colorado kicked off this past weekend with ACAsanctioned cyclocross events in Steamboat and Copper. Wells won both, which was undoubtedly the start he was looking for heading into the upcoming UCI (International Cycling Union) events in Seattle and Las Vegas this week and next. At the Copper ‘Cross, which is the more competitive of last weekend’s events, Wells took a spill early in the race. The crash caused him to fall back about 35 seconds from the lead – a tough margin to make up. He was playing catch-up for the remainder of the race, regaining third by the midway point. Matthew Pacocha, Wells’ teammate, was in the lead at that point but had a mechanical problem and dropped back. With two laps to go, Wells made contact with Allen Krughoff, a boulder rider. The two were going

To the big stage this weekend Since taking second in Vail’s mountain bike race series, Wells has been staying active in anticipation of cyclocross season. He raced in the Steamboat stage race, which is a four-day road race, and he’s been holding informal cyclocross training with other locals in Nottingham Park on a weekly basis. Seattle has traditionally been a tough venue for Wells. Last year, he went in feeling pretty good, but racing in rainy and muddy conditions, he finished 24th the first day and 14th the second day. He was 12th at Cross Vegas, which is the biggest race on domestic soil, Wells said. “I try not to focus too much on the [See WINS FOR WELLS, page 15]

Irvine goes it alone at Club 20 House district 56 incumbent Scanlan opts out of debate By Matt Minich Mountaineer Staff Writer Candidates from Colorado’s biggest races squared off against each other at Saturday’s Club 20 debates in Grand Junction, but Debra Irvine, the Republican challenger for State House District 56, took the stage alone. A painter from Breckenridge, Irvine has never held a public office, and joked on the platform about her experience and her nerves. “I’m not going to evade anyone today, but I have instinctively located the nearest exit,� she said to laughter, explaining beforehand that she had completed a U.S. Army “escape and evade� training course. In her 10-minute speech Saturday morning, Irvine did not address any specific policy issues. Instead, she

focused on her personal ideologies and her grassroots campaign style. Since announcing her candidacy for the seat, Irvine has walked miles of her district, which includes much of Summit and Lake counties, and much of Eagle County. If elected representative, she promised to maintain the same level of intimacy with her constituency. “I will not be a 120 day legislator,� she said. “I will be working from the first of January until the 31st of December.� Irvine addressed the value of education, saying that every student, whether they plan to go to college, vocational school or directly into the workforce, should be professionally prepared for their career field. She did not address any specific education policies that she would implement if elected.

At a past appearance in Eagle County, Irvine described herself as a staunch fiscal conservative, and said she would be unlikely to support any spending that was not required by state or federal mandates. Irvine’s opponent, incumbent Democrat Christine Scanlan, declined to appear at the weekend’s debates. Instead, Scanlan attended the Beetlefest in Frisco, an festival meant to educate residents about the state’s efforts to combat the Pine Bark Beetle, which has destroyed more than a million acres of forest in Colorado. Scanlan said she had committed to appear at the festival weeks before receiving an invitation from Club 20. Because control of the beetle infestation has been central [See IRVINE ALONE, page 15]

All Your MMJ growing in Eagle may Back to School come down to Woodland Supplies in One! Mayor casts tiebreaker vote for town, which will examine the issue tonight Eagle Mayor Ed Woodland’s tiebreaker vote could mean the difference between the status quo or expansion into commercial growing for Eagle medical marijuana dispensary owner Dave Manzanares. The Eagle town board is expected to pick up the topic tonight after it was continued at the last meeting. Two public hearings on the issue are scheduled for tonight’s meeting, which begins at 6 p.m. at the Eagle Town Hall. In Eagle, the mayor only votes in the case of a tie between the other six board members. Manzanares was able to start his business last year, after Woodland broke a 2-2

tie in the town’s resolution to allow medical marijuana dispensaries within the city limits. To date, the Eagle has been the only town in the county to vote in favor of dispensaries. Now new state laws passed this summer require dispensaries to cultivate 70 percent of their product. This has spurred Manzanares to issue a permit request to add a commercial growing operation and an infusion room to his Chambers Avenue shop. Once again, the board seems divided on the issue. But this time, Manzanares wants all board members to weigh in.

Work on tap for Avon Benchmark Road

The Town of Avon Public Works department will close a section of Benchmark Road at Avon Station for yearly maintenance starting tomorrow, Sept. 15. Benchmark Road is expected to reopen for traffic by Friday morning. Town of Avon and ECO buses will use the turnaround at Avon Center on Benchmark Road, and access to all Benchmark Road businesses and the Seasons will remain open. Traffic to the Municipal building, library and Nottingham Park will be routed through River Front Lane. For more information contact Gary Padilla at 748-4100.

Board Member Scott Turnipseed was absent from the August 24 meeting and the issue was continued. Manzanares is ultimately banking on Turnipseed’s support to allow for either a majority, or a split vote, which would once again go to Woodland. “My philosophy is to try to keep government out of people’s lives,” Woodland said in August. “State law says it is OK, with regulations. I agree that it should be monitored and I want to keep it from being grown in the neighborhoods, national parks, and other areas. Marijuana is not personally for me, but who am I to say it doesn’t help someone else? So ultimately I am more for personal choice.”

113 beetle kill trees coming down in East Vail

The U.S. Forest Service approved a request by the Vail Fire Department to remove approximately 113 dead and diseased lodgepole pine trees on forest land south of Bighorn Road in East Vail as part of the town’s ongoing Forest Health project. Crews from the fire department’s wildfire division were scheduled to begin the work yesterday. The area is located approximately 1.9 miles east of the Interstate-70 East Vail interchange Once cut, the firewood will be available to the permitholding public on Sept. 17. More info: 401-4202.

northern Colorado, destroying at least one home and threatening other as residents in the Boulder foothills about 35 miles away return to their homes after one of the most destructive fires in state history. Four helicopters and four air tankers yesterday were helping about 80 firefighters trying to contain the blaze in Loveland. So fire, that fire has burned about 600 acres, or just under a square mile. This new wildfire pulled some of the resources trying to finish containment at the Four Mile Canyon fire outside Boulder. That fire destroyed 166 homes and was at 87 percent containment yesterday morning. The Denver Post reports that investigators at the Boulder fire were looking at the possibility that the blaze was sparked by a resident’s fire pit.

Obama may not be able to raise taxes on incomes over $250K

President Barack Obama’s plan to raise taxes on wealthier people while preserving cuts for everyone else appears increasingly likely to founder before Election Day. Senate GOP leaders declared yesterday that Republicans are, to a person, opposed to legislation that would extend only middle-class tax relief — which Obama has repeatedly promised to deliver — if Democrats fol-

low through on plans to let tax rates rise for the wealthiest Americans. The GOP senators forcefully made their case one day after House Republican leader John Boehner suggested he might vote for Obama’s plan if that ends up the only option. Both Republicans and Democrats are using the looming expiration of Bush-era tax cuts as a defining battle in elections to determine control of Congress.

Ground Zero mosque to spread message of ‘moderate Islam’

It is two blocks from ground zero, but the site of a proposed mosque and Islamic center shouldn’t be seen as “hallowed ground� in a neighborhood that also contains a strip club and a betting parlor, the cleric leading the effort said yesterday. Making an ardent case for the compatibility of Islam and American values, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf reiterated that he is searching for a solution to the furor the project has created. But he left unanswered exactly what he had in mind. If anything, Rauf only deepened the questions around the project’s future, telling an audience at the Council on Foreign Relations think tank that he was “exploring all options� — but declining to specify them — while [See THE UPDATE, page 8]

California trying to muffle motorcycles

Some Santa Monica, Calif. residents’ wishes for peace and quiet could come true after the state Senate passed a bill this month that would make it a motor vehicle violation to ride a roaring motorcycle. The only catch is that the decision now falls to the state’s biker-in-chief, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, an avid motorcyclist. Schwarzenegger’s fellow riders — still bitter over an 18-year-old state law requiring helmets — are hoping he’ll veto the law. The bill targets motorcyclists who remove factoryinstalled emission control devices mandated by the U.S. government and replace them with custom, aftermarket parts that often make their bikes louder — and, consequently, dirtier. If passed, motorcycles would be required to bear the proper U.S. Environmental Protection Agency label certifying that the exhaust system is clean burning and does not exceed 80 decibels — about the same as a vacuum cleaner.

Investigators are still trying to figure out how the pipeline in San Bruno ruptured and ignited a gigantic fireball that torched one home after another in the neighborhood, killing at least four people. Pacific Gas & Electric Co., the pipeline’s owner, said yesterday it has set aside up to $100 million to help residents recover. Experts say the California disaster epitomizes the risks that communities face with old gas lines. The pipe was more than 50 years old – right around the life expectancy for steel pipes. It was part of a transmission line that in one section had an “unacceptably high� risk of failure, and it was in a densely populated area. The blast was the latest warning sign in a series of deadly infrastructure failures in recent years, including a bridge collapse in Minneapolis and a steam pipe ex-

Trash incinerator may bankrupt city in Penn

Pennsylvania’s financially troubled capital city is being sued over debt that threatens to drag it into bankruptcy. The Patriot-News of Harrisburg says the two lawsuits were filed yesterday in an effort to force the city to make payments on debt tied to the problem-plagued renovation of its trash incinerator. Mayor Linda Thompson says the city doesn’t have the money to make the installment payments and that she is trying to negotiate a new payment plan. TD Bank filed one suit seeking payment of nearly $35 million due Dec. 15. The bank joined a second suit with M&T Bank and Assured Guaranty to recoup millions in missed debt payments. TD and M&T banks are trustees for bondholders. Assured Guaranty is an insurer.

Where’s the oil? On the Gulf floor, scientists say

Far beneath the surface of the Gulf of Mexico, deeper than divers can go, scientists say they are finding oil from the busted BP well on the sea’s muddy and mysterious bottom. Oil at least two inches thick was found Sunday night and yesterday morning about a mile beneath the surface. Under it was a layer of dead shrimp and other small animals, said University of Georgia researcher Samantha Joye, speaking from the helm of a research vessel in the Gulf.

Castro acting like a CEO

Cuba announced yesterday it will cast off at least half a million state employees by mid-2011 and reduce restrictions on private enterprise to help them find new jobs — the most dramatic step yet in President Raul Castro’s push to radically remake employment on the communist-run island. Castro suggested during a nationally televised address on Easter Sunday that as many 1 million Cuban workers - about one in five - may be redundant. But the government had not previously laid out specific plans to reduce the work force. The layoffs will start immediately and continue through the first half of next year, according to the nearly 3 million-strong Cuban Workers Confederation — the only labor union allowed by the government. To soften the blow, it said the government would increase private-sector job opportunities, including allowing more Cubans to become self-employed, forming cooperatives run by employees rather than government administrators and increasing private control of state land, businesses and infrastructure through long-term leases.

Nadal wins US Open Completes career Grand Slam, has chance at ‘Rafa Slam’

Rafael Nadal of Spain exults after winning a clutch point against Novak Djokovic of Serbia during the men’s championship finals at the U.S. Open Monday night. Nadal won his first ever Open completing the career slam in New York in four sets. AP photo.

One year after Del Potro knocked Rafael Nadal out of the U.S. Open 6-2, 6-2. 6-2, Nadal beat Novak Djokovic Monday night in the finals 6-4, 5-7, 6-4, 6-2 on the hard court in New York. Djokovic did manage to do something no one else did, he took a set from the phenom from Spain. Nadal was seemingly flawless in his pursuit to completing his career Slam, the U.S. Open being the only Grand Slam Nadal hadn’t won. Djokovic and Nadal had an extra day of rest as their final was rain delayed until Monday -- although Nadal may not have needed it. His semifinal was a straight-set win over Mikhail Youzhny that lasted only 2 hours, 13 minutes. This takes his Grand Slam winning streak to 21 matches, having won the French Open and Wimbledon to raise his major title total to eight. A victory over Djokovic also made the 24-year-old Nadal the first man since Rod Laver’s true, calendar-year Grand Slam in 1969 to win at Paris, London and New York in the same season. Nadal will head to the Australian Open in January with a chance to pull off the Tiger-like “Rafa Slam”— four major titles in a row, something nobody has done since Laver.

Reporter ‘uncomfortable’ around Jets After a summer in the spotlight, the Jets are under scrutiny again. The “Hard Knocks” stars are being investigated by the NFL for the way Jets players and coaches carried on when they were visited by a female reporter from a Mexican TV network during the team’s practice Saturday. Ines Sainz, of Mexico’s TV Azteca, said on her Twitter account Saturday that she felt “very uncomfortable!” in the Jets’ locker room, where a few players let loose with some “Whooo-weee!” catcalls as she waited with two male coworkers to interview quarterback Mark Sanchez, who is of Mexican descent. “Of course you feel it when you are being stared at and when you are being spoken of in a certain way,” Sainz told The Associated Press. “I opted to ignore it … I tried to not even pay attention.” She tweeted in Spanish on Satur-

day night that she tried “not to look anywhere!!” “It was an uncomfortable moment because you are in the team’s dressing room and they are obviously changing clothes, showering—doing what they do every day in the locker room,” Sainz said to the AP. “So being a woman, obviously it was a bit uncomfortable.” Sainz also thanked supporters yesterday for their concern. “I already spoke to the NFL and it will be up to them to decide whether or not there will be consequences!!” she tweeted. Sainz was at the New Meadowlands Stadium last night and had a seat in the press box for New York’s season opener against Baltimore. During defensive back drills on Saturday, Jets assistant coach Dennis Thurman seemed to deliberately throw to players near where Sainz was standing on the sideline. Even linebacker Jason Taylor, who nor-

mally doesn’t participate in those position drills, went out for a pass. At the end of the drill, head coach Rex Ryan threw a pass to Thurman, who caught it, ran toward Sainz and appeared to speak to her very briefly. The Association for Women in Sports Media said a board member spoke to Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum on Sunday about the reports. Also, team owner Woody Johnson spoke to Sainz, telling her “he expects all members of the Jets organization to conduct themselves in a professional manner at all times,” Jets spokesman Bruce Speight said. Sainz said she talked Sunday with NFL officials. “I don’t want to make it a bigger deal,” she said. “I have confidence in the NFL and the Jets’ management and I know that this will serve as a precedent so that this does not happen to another women.”

Nieve wins stage-16 of Spanish Vuelta Mikel Nieve of Spain won the 16th stage of the Spanish Vuelta on Monday and Joaquin Rodriguez regained the overall lead. Nieve secured his first career stage win by finishing the grueling 112.7-mile ride in 4 hours, 51 minutes, 59 seconds. The Euskaltel Euskadi cyclist pulled away late to ride alone up the Cotobello summit to the finish. Frank Schleck of Saxo Bank was 1 minute, 6 seconds back, while Kevin de Weert was third. Rodriguez was fourth but took the leader’s red jersey for the second time by moving 33 seconds ahead of overnight leader Vincenzo Nibali. Rodriguez has an overall time of 70:24:39. Ezequiel Mosquera of Spain finished sixth Monday and is 53 seconds behind Rodriguez in third. Schleck is 2:16 back in fourth. Tuesday is a rest day before Wednesday’s 28.6-mile time trial. “I know Nibali is a lot stronger than me in that event, so I’ll just try to lose as little time as possible,” Rodriguez said. The 21-stage race ends Sunday.

New drug-resistant superbugs found in 3 states

An infectious-disease nightmare is unfolding: Bacteria that have been made resistant to nearly all antibiotics by an alarming new gene have sickened people in three states and are popping up all over the world, health officials reported yesterday. The U.S. cases and two others in Canada all involve people who had recently received medical care in India, where the problem is widespread. Reportedly dozens of British people who had gone to India for medical procedures were affected. How many deaths the gene may have caused is unknown; there is no central tracking of such cases. So far, the gene has mostly been found in bacteria that cause gut or urinary infections.

Jerry Brown apologizes to Clinton over comment

Candidate for California governor Jerry Brown apologized yesterday for taking a swipe at fellow Democrat and former President Bill Clinton over his relationship with Monica Lewinsky. His apology came a day after Brown said his Republican rival Meg Whitman is using Clinton footage from the 1992 Democratic presidential primary to lie about Brown in a current campaign attack ad. In response to the ad, Brown took a jab at Clinton. “Bill Clinton was an excellent president,� Brown told reporters yesterday. “It was wrong for me to joke about an incident from many years ago, and I’m sorry.�

LETTER FROM LONDON IN SUPPORT OF VAN BEEK FOR SHERIFF officers. James then suddenly started speaking German fluently to one of the officers who had spent some time in Germany. To say I was impressed is an understatement. James excels in effective and positive communication, communicating with credibility and confidence providing an intellectual atmosphere conducive to the stimulation and interchange of ideas, encouraging open communication to achieve mutual understanding to all present. He demonstrated this on a number of occasions whilst I worked with him. During the eighteen months I worked with James he always kept himself well informed of pertinent legislation, changing government regulations, business, political and social issues affecting us in Kosovo and if I did not know something he was my go to guy and an invaluable source of knowledge. I left Kosovo to work in Baghdad Iraq just after it was liberated with the Coalition Powers Authority. During this time I worked as part of an intelligence cell with the US Military and assisted with the setting up of the new Iraq Police Service. I wrote policy and training plans for them. During this time I stayed in contact with James, via e-mail still requesting advice from him which greatly assisted me in achieving mission. I returned to Kosovo in 2004 where again I met up with James who was now the Station Commander of Kamenica Police station responsible for one of the most ethnically mixed municipalities with a population of just over 64,000 people, 170 Kosovo Police Officers, 20 international Police Officers (including me) and 14 language assistants.

James displayed the confidence needed to face the toughest leadership challenges demonstrating strong, dynamic and charismatic leadership qualities. James was responsible for all the police issues affecting this community, dealing with murders, rapes, riots and other public disorder such as protests. James continuously demonstrated his knowledge of when to restrain and when to exercise power, promoting harmony and teamwork, by showing appreciation for contributions made by others. James responds promptly to changes and opportunities, I have seen him dealing with a horrific incident in the morning then participating in games with children in the community and giving one hundred percent attention and focus to whatever he is doing at that time. One of James greatest assets is his ability to empower employees with the authority and resources to achieve results recognizing the importance of working through subordinates while maintaining control. I have always found James to be consistent, dependable and accurate in carrying out responsibilities to a successful conclusion displaying industriousness, conscientiousness and diligence in performing tasks. His verbal commitments are consistent with his actions and he can be counted on to achieve results using proven methods and techniques generating greater success in highly complex situations. James was known for developing a station known for its credibility showing a strong interest in professional development programs. During his time as Station Commander in Kamenica James effectively developed individual, departmental and organizational

goals to attain objectives keeping assertiveness and empathy in balance, demonstrating strong facilitation skills, effectively handling differing viewpoints skilfully, and refusing unreasonable demands when required. James always strived to make more meaningful and challenging contributions to the betterment of the station, developing a climate providing motivation, participation and opportunities for employee initiative. Overall I would say James is fair, cheerful and follows businesslike procedures to accomplish objectives, recognizing and accepting his personal limitations avoiding unrealistic promises. James possesses all the traits associated with excellence displaying a strong moral character demonstrating a commitment to core values and is highly regarded for his integrity and impeccable honesty. I would work with and for James any opportunity I could get. I respect him as a Police Officer and especially as a friend who can maintain a sense of humour when those around him are loosing theirs and will always be grateful to receive his infectious energizing optimism. I have worked with a number of American Police Officers during my career and James Van Beek is the only one I would ever recommend, endorse, support, and advocate you to have as your Sheriff. I wish him all the luck with his campaign. Calvin Tonks, Police Sergeant Ministry Of Defence Police, United Kingdom

earlier part of the season,” Wells said. “You really want to be going good in December. I’m carrying the best fitness I’ve ever had going into these early races, but there so many variables that can go into a cross race.” The primary goal this weekend is to finish well enough to collect some UCI points, which help in terms of staging for races like the National Championship in

Bend, Ore., that culminates the season. “Anytime you can be top 10 at nationals, I think that’s a success,” Wells said. It’s no easy task for Wells, who also works a full-time job as a carpenter here in the Vail Valley. Many of the racers that he goes up against are professional road or cross-country cyclists, who ride their bikes for a living year-round.

ral location and challenging geography. “It will allow schools to better prepare our students for the workforce, help create vibrant business communities throughout the state, and improve access to health care and public safety,” Ritter said. The $100 million grant will be funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which included $7.2 billion to expand broadband connectivity nationwide. Colorado’s grant is among the largest awards to the state this year. The project is officially called the Educational Access Gateway Learning Environment Network, or EAGLE-Net. It will address the lack of affordable high-capacity broadband access at many rural and underserved school districts and educational institutions, many of which currently rely on outdated copper-based telecommunications facilities. It will be implemented by a public-private partnership between the state and IBM, which will act as the systems integrator for the project. IBM will assist EAGLE-Net by building the statewide broadband architecture. The company will be responsible for the project’s management office, will design the network and will manage its deployment. The EAGLE-Net project will potentially serve all 178 of Colorado’s K-12 school districts – approximately 1,700 schools and more than 830,000 students – as well as 15 community colleges, 26 libraries, and three institutions of higher education. The building served by the project will be provided internet access at speeds from 10 megabytes per second to a gigabyte per second. Among the approximately 234 institutions to be served by the project are 178 school districts, 26 libraries, 15 community colleges, and 3 universities, including the University of Northern Colorado, Air Force Academy and Colorado College. The school districts to be served initially represent more than 1,100 schools and 685,000 students (with growth to over 1,700 schools and 830,000 students), many from economically vulnerable populations, including Hispanics and other Englishsecond-language users, African-Americans, Native Americans, low-income and atrisk youth.

IRVINE ALONE AT CLUB 20 to her work as a representative since she was first appointed to the seat in 2007, she said, she did not cancel. “It’s been one of my top if not my top legislative priority,” she said.

She opted out of this particular debate because of her prior commitment to the Beetlefest and because District 56 does not fall on the Western Slope, the region Club 20 rep-

Scanlan was recently named Independent Bankers of Colorado’s 2010 “Champion of Main Street Colorado” and is scheduled to visit Vail on Friday for the IBC’s 37th annual convention, where she will accept the award.
