Avon nearing new code 2 years in the making, document should be ready by next meeting By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer The Avon Town Council should come to a vote at its next meeting on the proposed Development Code that has been in the works for about two years. At Tuesday’s meeting, the council reviewed key revisions to mandatory housing mitigation, duplex lot subdivisions and design guidelines. After public comment, council statements and several more revisions, they unanimously voted to table the resolution and fine-tune the

language for a first reading on October 12. Public comment may still be submitted up until that date. “It’s 98 percent good,� Dominic Mauriello said to the council and staff. “You’ve done a great job turning this around.� Mauriello is a local planning consultant whose expertise has been a welcomed asset to both staff and council throughout the complicated process. He did raise concerns, however, over disallowing planned unit developments to propose greater density, 50-percent site

coverage for town core zoning (which he said should be 80 percent), a provision limiting parking for a use to 125 percent of the requirements, and language that makes provisions in the comprehensive plan binding. Chuck Madison also submitted public comment on behalf of East West Partners, which developed the Westin Riverfront property. The company is seeking assurance that the Riverfront development will be considered under the previous PUD – something that still needs to be worked out with Avon’s town attorney.

“If the answers are not what we expect, it could take us a year to go through the Riverfront property and it will cost a lot of money to hire engineers,� Madison said. During council’s comments, Buz Reynolds raised a concern regarding a provision that requires homes 50-percent destroyed by wildfire to be rebuilt under the new code, which could complicate matters with insurance companies, he said. Dave Dantas also agreed that homes should be rebuilt as they [See AVON NEARING, page 18]

Facebook humiliation blamed for suicide

A student at New Jersey’s Rutgers University is presumed to have committed suicide after two classmates secretly fed a live stream of him having sex in his dorm room onto the Internet. The victim, Tyler Clementi, killed himself last week, a lawyer for his family said. Paul Mainardi, the lawyer, said yesterday that Clementi, 18, was “a fine young man and a distinguished musician,� according to the AP. A law enforcement official told the AP that the student’s license and Rutgers University ID were found in a wallet left on the George Washington Bridge on Sept. 22 after two witnesses saw him jump.

A dozen of the Vail Valley’s youngest chefs made their culinary debut last night at one of the valley’s newest fine restaurants – the 7one5 at Vail Marriott. The junior cooks are part of the new “Little Foodies in the Kitchen,� program, which reached out earlier this month to fifth-graders through the valley by offering them a chance to cook up their own healthy dishes to be judged by local chefs. Each of the 36 cooks who participated in the contest was signed up for one of three trips to the kitchens of Vail restaurants. The group of students who visited 7one5 yesterday were given lessons from the restaurant’s top chefs on cutting meat and preparing ravioli, and took a minor role in crafting an ice sculpture built by Paul Werner of Alpine Ice. The steaks cut by the students and the pieces of ravioli were used in a four-course dinner prepared [See LITTLE FOODIES, page 18]

Nearly nine months after the earthquake, more than a million Haitians still live on the streets between piles of rubble, reports the Associated Press. But while relief aid may be tied up in Washington, you can help get supplies directly to children there, and all without leaving the Vail Valley. The Wing and a Prayer Foundation and founder Lance Young are hosting a Haiti Relief Benefit at Avondale restaurant tomorrow evening, in an effort to help out students at the Bethany Baptist Christian Church and School in Jacmel, Haiti. Young was at the school in late January, personally delivering food and a diesel generator to the students and administrators. “Our take on it was that unless you were military it would be difficult to make an appreciable impact in that city,� said Young. “Luckily, we didn’t have to stumble very far to find out how a difference could be made.� Young was there trying to get a group of girls out of the country who were in Haiti with a church group on a mission near Port Au Prince when the quake hit. Following the temblor, the girls were relocated to a school outside of the city for their protection. Being miles from the city, traveling the roads to the Port Au Prince airport was going to be dangerous and access to the airport was in question. Fortunately, the kids’ parents were able to plead to the Governor of Florida, who leaned on the military. Days later the kids arrived back in the states via military black hawk helicopters. “It was a happy ending for these kids,� said Young. “But the process got us thinking. So many of the kids in Haiti haven’t had a happy beginning, middle or ending in life.� And such was the genesis of the Wing and a Prayer Foundation. Since then, the foundation’s priority has been to assist the efforts to providing short and long

term assistance such as food and health care for the children and their families. And, for the long haul, proper education so they can some day provide for themselves. All of the deposits go right into the school’s account, so you don’t have to worry about it getting tied up in bureaucracy. “We get the money to them in the right fashion, all contributions go directly to the source with next to no overhead,� says Young, who will be making another trip there himself to hand deliver supplies. To date Young has funded the Wing and a Prayer Foundation, and what seemed like a temporary mission at the time is quickly turning into a lifelong goal. “We want to raise these kids, keep them out of the negative side of life down there, and hopefully inspire them to become the future leaders of the country and make the nation a better place to live,� said Young. Tomorrow’s benefit starts at 6 p.m. at Avondale and is scheduled to run until 10:30. It’s $125 per person, which includes the reception with passed hors d’oeuvres, a three-course dinner and raffle ticket. For more information, or to register in advance, visit

State GOP presents agenda Seeks to limit government, spending Colorado Senate Republicans yesterday unveiled their reform package that they believe will control spending and reduce Colorado’s dependence on Washington. The “Agenda to Reform and Restrain Government” contains broad, bulleted points that range from eliminating state employee unionization to controlling government spending. The Republicans believe the agenda would help bring the state out of the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. “It is time we thoroughly audited the functions of government,” Sen. Kevin Lundberg (R-Berthoud) said in a statement. “We can no longer afford to jeopardize vital services in order to meet the Democrats’ political agenda.”

Pat Waak, chairwoman of the Colorado Democratic Party, slammed the GOP agenda for lacking specifics. She pointed out that for two years, Democrats have cut spending and closed shortfalls of nearly $5 billion with little help from Republicans. “This is not leadership,” Waak said. “It’s a complete abdication of their responsibility, and their repeated failure to offer specifics should be galling to the public.” The “Agenda to Reform and Restrain Government” would: • Identify and budget to core functions of government, phasing out nonessential programs; • Limit year over year government operations spending increases; • Require a two-third vote to extend sunset legislation;

• Institute a state hiring freeze until budget challenges are met; • Reduce bureaucracy payroll to private sector levels; • Safeguard taxpayers from volatile swings by creating a meaningful Rainy Day Fund. “All of government spending needs to be scrutinized,” Sen. Mark Scheffel (R-Parker), said in a statement. “We must institute priority-based budgeting if we are to navigate our way through this difficult economy.” But Waak believes the agenda has little substance and is nothing more than a Republican political ploy. “The Republicans plan to close a billion-dollar shortfall with nine bulleted talking points? Brilliant. Wish we’d thought of that,” Waak said.

Vail Valley Medical Center’s (VVMC) Eagle Care Clinic was recognized last week as one of 10 non-profit groups in Colorado to receive a $25,000 grant from The Colorado Trust. The Colorado Trust is distributing the grants to strengthen the work of recipients in the area of childcare. “Receiving this grant is an honor,” said Doris Kirchner, President and CEO of VVMC. “Eagle Care is important to the wellness of people in our community and this grant will help fund care for children at this facility.” The Eagle Care Clinic’s work span covers adult healthcare, obstetrics care and pediatrics. Eagle Care offers services to Eagle County’s

low-income and indigent population. The Eagle Care Clinic collaborated on the grant application with Vail Valley Smiles, United Way and The Rotary Club. The Colorado Trust opened its doors in 1985 as the state’s first foundation focused solely on health, with an endowment of $191 million from the proceeds of the sale of the PSL Healthcare Corporation. Over the years, The Trust has granted $327 million to nearly a thousand grantees, reaching and improving the health and well-being of families within each of the state’s 64 counties. “We will receive grant funding from The Colorado Trust in October,” said Andrea Rahlf, Vice

President of Diversified Services at VVMC. “Our team is in the process of determining how Eagle County’s low-income children can best benefit from the funds. It’s great to have our work acknowledged by The Colorado Trust.” Nonprofit organizations and collaboratives were nominated for The Colorado Trust by local community foundations and United Way agencies across the state. Each of the 10 selected groups will receive a oneyear, $25,000 general operating grant from The Colorado Trust to continue their collaborative efforts to ensure the provision of health coverage and care to children.

Bright Future hosts most successful tournament yet By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer The 11th annual Bright Future Golf Tournament couldn’t have been held on a brighter September day at Adam’s Mountain Country Club in Eagle. 96 participants made for a sold-out event Tuesday, which is largest of the Bright Future Foundation’s many fundraising efforts, and according to Board of Directors President Craig Cormack, it’s also the most fun. “It was the most successful golf tournament fundraiser we’ve had in eleven years,” said BFF executive director Sheri Mintz. “We want to thank our sponsors, Adam’s Mountain Country Club and everyone who came out for a round of golf Tuesday.” Board Member and Golf Committee Event Chair

Cindy Clement said these are challenging times for all non-profits and especially for those organizations providing services to victims of domestic violence. “The funds raised will allow Bright Future to provide safety and shelter to families fleeing domestic violence,” Clement said. “We are so grateful for the enormous generosity of the sponsors, players and supporters who made this event possible.” Adam’s Mountain Country Club facilitated the tournament and donated the use of the course and clubhouse per their development agreement with the county. “It’s a great opportunity for Adam’s Mountain Country Club and its members to do something good for the community. There are so many great charities in the valley, so we really enjoy doing it,” said Joe Cranston, the club’s general manager. The winning foursome – David Harris, Andy Sutton, Marty Topor and Dave Crawford – scrambled their way to the lowest score and earned a round of golf at Country Club of the Rockies for their efforts. And for a little added flare, a putting contest was held between [See BRIGHT FUTURE GOLF TOURNEY, page 18]

The planet circles a star called Gliese 581. It’s about 120 trillion miles away, so it would take several generations for a spaceship to get there.

New wells planned 50 miles from Florida

The government of Cuba has laid out zones in the Gulf of Mexico where private energy companies, mostly from Canada and Europe, have said they could one day drill test wells searching for crude. Some of this space is only 50 miles from Florida. A 2004 test well by a Spanish company was not considered commercially viable, however, and Washington’s 48-year-old trade embargo prohibits U.S. companies from investing in Cuban oil exploration and production, even though the island’s Gulf waters are close to the Florida coast.

the hard rock beneath the Gulf of Mexico, an environmental minefield that has been ignored for decades. No one – not industry, not government – is checking to see if they are leaking, an Associated Press investigation shows. The oldest of these wells were abandoned in the late 1940s, raising the prospect that many deteriorating sealing jobs are already failing. The AP investigation uncovered particular concern with 3,500 of the neglected wells – those characterized in federal government records as “temporarily abandoned.” Regulations for temporarily abandoned wells require oil companies to present plans to reuse or permanently plug such wells within a year, but the AP found that the rule is routinely circumvented, and that more than 1,000 wells have lingered in that unfinished condition for more than a decade.

How rich is rich?

The New York Times is reporting much of the debate about whether to extend the Bush tax cuts has focused on big economic issues: how the decision might affect the fragile economy, the widening federal deficit and hiring by small businesses. As the political battle drags on, however, it has also veered into a more basic matter of fairness, whether a person who earns more than $200,000 a year should be taxed at rates similar to those who make $5 million, according to the Times.

Baghdad Green Zone attacks up dramatically

The top U.S. commander for Baghdad

warned yesterday that Iraq’s prolonged political crisis has encouraged militants to step up attacks and left civilians so frustrated they could be holding back crucial tips on suspected insurgent cells. The assessment by U.S. Brig. Gen. Rob Baker is the most direct link by American military brass between Iraq’s nearly seven-month impasse on forming a government and a recent spike in violence that has included rocket strikes blamed on Shiite militias and targeted killings by suspected Sunni hit squads against security officials and government workers. Baker’s comments also boost U.S. pressure on Iraqi political leaders to finally pull together after March elections, which were narrowly won by a Sunnibacked coalition but without enough parliament seats to push aside the Shiiteled government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki — who seeks to hold on to power.

Star Wars 3-D on the way

Lucasfilm announced yesterday that the “Star Wars” films will be converted into 3-D and rereleased theatrically. All six films of the saga, beginning with episode one, “The Phantom Menace,” and concluding with episode six, “Return of the Jedi,” are expected to be released in theaters in 2012. Lucasfilm and distributor Twentieth Century Fox have not yet set a release date. Industrial Light & Magic is supervising the conversion process, which it promises will be “cutting edge.” Many previous conversions of films shot in 2-D, such as “Clash of the Titans,” have drawn criticism for cheapening 3-D. John Knoll, visual effects supervisor for Industrial Light & Magic said a

How to start a trade war

The House has approved legislation that would allow the U.S. to seek trade sanctions against China and other nations for manipulating their currency to gain trade advantages. The 348-79 vote yesterday sends the measure to the Senate, where its prospects are unclear. Senate supporters hope to get a vote on a similar proposal after Congress returns following the November congressional elections. Supporters said the bill would allow the Obama administration to pressure China on an issue that they say has led to the loss of more than 2 million manufacturing jobs in the U.S. over the past decade. The vote came as lawmakers scrambled to wrap up unfinished business so they can hit the campaign trail with a little over a month before the Nov. 2 elections. Polls show that the state of the economy and an unemployment rate that remains stuck at 9.6 percent are the

Orton: Broncos need better balance Kyle Orton is irritated. Brady Quinn is befuddled. Tim Tebow is resolute. Denverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three quarterbacks all had different matters on their minds yesterday as the Broncos (1-2) began preparations for their trip to Tennessee (2-1) this weekend. Orton, whose 1,078 yards passing through three games are the most by a Broncos quarterback since 1962, suggested the Broncosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; third-down troubles and red-zone issues could be solved with more production out of Denverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dismal running game. Quinn admitted he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know why he leapfrogged Tebow to serve as the Broncosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; backup quarterback Sunday against Indianapolis, and Tebow insisted he was just going to keep hitting the playbook and learning what he can by watching. The Broncos were a miserable 5-for-15 on third down and failed to score a touchdown on five trips inside the Coltsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 20-yard line in a 27-13 loss Sunday. Just one week earlier, they were 14-for-20 on third down in a win over Seattle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we were balanced and I think we were in the right situation, short-yardage situations,â&#x20AC;? Orton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were able to stay balanced and had the whole game plan at our disposal.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another way of saying he needs more production out of his running backs, none of whom are averaging even 3 yards a carry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I mean, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to be able to run the ball in the red zone,â&#x20AC;? Orton insisted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The closer you get down there, the more people there are to defend in the end zone and the easi-

est way to get in is to run it in.â&#x20AC;? Orton wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just calling out his tailbacks Wednesday. When he was asked on a conference call with reporters in Nashville what was wrong with the running game, Orton cracked, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not enough yards.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had negative runs, which is a good thing,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have only had five or six negative runs, which we always talk about as a good thing. We are starting the play well. We just need to finish some blocks and finish some runs and get into the secondary and make some big plays.â&#x20AC;? The Broncos are dead last in the NFL with a 67-yard average on the ground. They failed to punch it into the end zone on three runs by Laurence Maroney from inside the 1-yard line Sunday. Blame it on an inexperienced and injury-riddled offensive line that could get right tackle Ryan Harris back against the Titans or on a banged-up backfield in which Knowshon Moreno (hamstrings), Maroney (thigh), Andre Brown (turf toe) and Correll Buckhalter (back) have all been in and out of the training room. One thingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for certain: Tebow is not a legitimate option near the goal line just yet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to do that in short yardage,â&#x20AC;? coach Josh McDaniels insisted this week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People who mention that, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ridiculous.â&#x20AC;? Tebow, whose bruising running style made him a Heisman Trophy winner and two-time national cham-

pion at Florida, hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t played since taking three snaps in the Broncosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; opener in Jacksonville, his hometown, and rushing twice right into the pile for 2 yards. If Tebow thinks he could be part of the solution in the red zone, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not saying. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, I just try to do whatever my role is and to the best of my ability accomplish that role and you know, whatever Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m asked to do Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to do it and just try to do that the best I can,â&#x20AC;? he said in his usual diplomatic manner. After earning the No. 2 quarterback job with a decent training camp, Tebow was the third quarterback Sunday. McDaniels said it was a combination of the game plan and performance during the week and that it was a fluid situation. Quinn, who had an awful training camp, said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting a hang of the offense now. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, I think so. I think as youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here longer you get more and more comfortable with what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing week to week in the game plan,â&#x20AC;? he said. So, what did he do better to earn the No. 2 job last week? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know,â&#x20AC;? Quinn said with a laugh. And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll keep it by ... â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just do whatever I did last week, and then do it again this week,â&#x20AC;? he said. Tebow said nothing changes with him week to week no matter whether heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the No. 2 or No. 3. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to learn every day of practice and improve and get better, just try to keep understanding things more and play faster in practice,â&#x20AC;? he said. Knowing that he and Quinn are basically battling it out on a weekly basis doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t add any pressure, Tebow said.

were, but the topic was essentially passed over with a 4-2 vote and a caveat that the provision is not intended to incur any hardship. The topic of mandatory housing mitigation, which was also discussed during the council’s comments, harkened back to a time when Avon had more jobs than it could accommodate with affordable housing. Currently, large commercial developments are required to provide 10-percent housing mitigation for jobs created within the development, which is a drop in the bucket Councilman Brian Sipes argued.

“We’ve used every excuse in the last eight years that I’ve sat here to not talk about housing… This is not a document just for today,” said Sipes, who is optimistic that employment will bounce back before the next development code rewrite. Councilman Dantas said a higher percentage of mitigation might scare new projects away, and that’s certainly not something we want during the current economic climate. “We used to have a housing problem, now we have an employment problem,” he said.

for their parents by the restaurant’s chefs. Mark Millwood, the executive chef at 7one5, said he volunteered his kitchen for the activity as soon as he learned it was available. “I jumped all over it,” he said. “It’s something I’m really excited about.” As the child of a single mother, Millwood said he forged some of his fondest family memories in the kitchen, and went on to work in restaurants as a dishwasher at the age of twelve when he “wanted some blue nikes, and my mom said she wouldn’t pay for them.” He volunteered his time and his staff to the program because he hopes to share his love of cooking with a new generation, and to share a skill that can instill healthy eating habits and provide a possible career path. “If you can flip an egg, you can probably pay your bills,” he said. Scott Nesbitt, the executive sous chef who gave the meat cutting demonstration, said that while his table may not have attracted the same amount of enthusiasm as the ice sculpture, it didn’t go without attention. “One of them decided they were a vegetarian while I was teaching them,” he said, laughing. The kids in the program attend elementary schools from Vail to Gypsum, and some of them already have big plans for their futures in the restaurant business. Sophia Minar, a 10-year-old from Eagle County Charter Academy, hopes to one day open her own fivestar restaurant. She hasn’t settled on a name just yet,

to be exact – will go toward supporting the efforts at the Freedom Ranch Safe House, which offers safe haven for victims of domestic violence in Eagle County.

but said she is considering “Minar Shack.” Sophia’s preschool friend, Natalie Marner, attends Gypsum Elementary, and also hopes to work in or around the kitchen as an adult. For now, she’s teaching her six-year-old sister dishes like her “fancy French Toast,” which she entered in the contest. “She’s not quite there yet,” Marner said. The program is a part of Vail Restaurant Month, which hopes to attract tourism to the area during the usually sluggish fall season. The month features 80 different events and activities, with this week’s focusing on healthy eating and outdoor activities.
