Not quite Hidden Gems Valley’s congressman introduces legislation that would designate 166,000 acres of new wilderness in Eagle and Summit counties By Geoff Mintz and Matt Minich Mountaineer Staff Writers Congressman Jared Polis, who represents Colorado’s second congressional district, introduced legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives Wednesday that would designate 166,000 acres in Eagle and Summit counties as wilderness and special protection areas. The Eagle and Summit County Wilderness Preservation Act (HR-6280) differs from Hidden Gems in that it only includes lands within Eagle and Summit

counties, whereas Hidden Gems also advocates for land in Pitkin and Gunnison counties, which are outside Polis’ district. “The congressman came up with the areas that are included by working really closely with everyone in the area… and put together the pieces that had the most agreement – the ones that weren’t as controversial and were ready to be put into legislation,” said Lara Cottingham, a spokesperson for Polis’ office. HR-6280 would fulfill more than 80 percent of the wilderness proposed for

Eagle and Summit counties by the Hidden Gems campaign. Polis’ office said further legislation could continue to expand the wilderness area. “The congressman is completely onboard with looking at more areas in future congresses,” Cottingham said. “But for the sake of time, this legislation includes the areas that are ready right now.” In an interview with the Mountaineer last week, Rep. Polis said he felt there was strong consensus among all parties that there should be wilderness area, but

much of the land proposed by Hidden Gems was not appropriate for that designation because it is currently being used for recreation. “I think there were many areas in the Hidden Gems proposal that are not as well suited for wilderness as the proponents would like,” Polis said. “That’s one of the things we heard in several public hearings in Eagle County.” Polis insisted nothing proposed by his office increases the risk of fire damage to people, makes it harder to get water or [See HIDDEN GEMS, page 22]

A warning from China: currency bill could harm ties

Beijing warned Washington yesterday that economic ties might be damaged after American lawmakers escalated the conflict over China’s currency controls, inching the two economic giants closer to a trade war.The Commerce Ministry said a measure approved Wednesday by Congress to allow Washington to penalize governments that manipulate exchange rates violated free-trade rules. It gave no indication whether Beijing might retaliate, though it has imposed antidumping duties in recent months on imports of U.S. chicken, steel and nylon. After years of friction, the bill is thefirst [See THE UPDATE, page 12]

McInnis blasts video game Urges retailers not to sell war game set in Afghanistan By Gene Davis Special to the Mountaineer Former Republican Congressman and gubernatorial candidate Scott McInnis stepped back into the spotlight yesterday with a co-authored letter blasting a new video game that lets people play as the Taliban and kill U.S. troops. In the letter, McInnis and Bentley Rayburn, a retired U.S. Air Force General, ask the Colorado Retailers Association to urge all member retail outlets to not carry the latest “Medal of Honor� video game. McInnis and Rayburn believe the game, which is being put out by Electronic Arts (EA), is “an offensive and vulgar product� that shouldn’t be sold because it allows gamers to play as the Taliban for the multiplayer part of the game. “This is a complete disgrace and out of respect to our troops no retailer in Colorado should sell it,� says letter. MCINNIS theMeanwhile, Colorado Retail Council (CRC) President Christopher Howes said that the nonprofit could potentially violate federal antitrust laws if it called for its members to boycott a particular product. “We respect the First Amendment rights of video game publishers and other entertainment companies, as well as the rights of each retailer to make a determination, based on its own analysis, whether to carry a particular product on its shelves,� Howes said in an email. Regardless of the opposition, the newest “Medal of Honor� is poised to be a big success. EA recently announced that “Medal of Honor� hit a new franchise record with the number of pre-sell copies people have

New Arrivals

bought. The milestone positions “Medal of Honor� alongside EA’s top pre-selling games, and there is still plenty of time remaining until the game hits retail shelves on Oct. 12, according the game company. “Medal of Honor� is a reboot of the first-person shooter franchise and introduces players to the Tier 1 Operator, an elite warrior in the U.S. military who takes on missions “no one else can handle.� The game has been riding a wave of hype, with GameSpy awarding the title “Best Multiplayer of E3 2010.� Adam Harpold, manager of GameStop, 757 E. 20th Ave., thinks it’s “relatively stupid� that people are taking issue with “Medal of Honor� because it’s just a video game. He said that games such as the wartime simulator strive for realism, and that anyone who doesn’t want their kid or themselves to play the Mature-rated game shouldn’t buy it. “For me, it’s meant to be a wartime simulation, if you dumb it down at all you’re just taking away from the overall effect,� he said. “That’s not something you want to do.� But Denver-area Vietnam veteran Donald McNeely believes a line needs to be drawn somewhere and that it’s “unthinkable� to release a game allowing people to play as the Taliban. McInnis and Rayburn added in the letter that the Afghanistan-centered game being released as the Afghanistan war is still going on is “particularly offensive.� “Officials of Electronic Arts Corporation should also rethink selling this video game,� they say in the letter. “In their quest for profit, can these officials look into the eyes of those who have lost loved ones serving our country in Afghanistan with a clear conscious? Where is the respect for our soldiers?� For their part, U.S. military installations throughout the world have banned the game’s sale in their post and base exchanges.

Tancredo calls for Maes to drop out of Gov. race … again American Constitution candidate cites Republican candidate’s slump in latest poll By Matt Minich Mountaineer Staff Writer Once more, statements made by Republican Gubernatorial candidate Dan Maes earlier this campaign season have been used against him. Maes’ conservative opponent, American Constitution Party candidate Tom Tancredo, reminded voters on Tuesday that earlier this month, Maes issued a mandate on a radio show that any candidate who polled less than 20 percent should exclude themselves from the debates. The most recent poll of the race, done by Pulse Opinion Research and ordered by Fox News, placed

support for Maes at just 15 percent, showed 34 percent support for Tancredo and 44 percent support for Democrat John Hickenlooper. “I think there needs to be a benchmark for candidates,” Maes said as a guest on the Sept. 9 airing of the Caplin and Silverman radio show. “Somewhere you have to set the bar for who comes and who doesn’t.” In his experience as a candidate, Maes said the benchmark he had been asked to meet in order to secure television airtime or event invitations was 20 percent. On the show, Maes called the standard “arbitrary,” but did suggest that it be used to judge whether Tancredo be

invited to future debates. “If you’re polling 20 percent come on board, and if you’re not, then you don’t come,” he said. Cautioned by the host that his own poll numbers could drop below 20 percent in a three-way race, Maes said that he would hold himself to the standard “if hypothetically there was this magic rule.” He did not say that any rule was actually in effect, but that he would abide by one if it was implemented. “Here’s what’s different about me and career politicians,” Maes said. “When I set a rule, I live by it and I don’t change the goal post, you know, when it doesn’t suit me well.” A statement from the Tancredo campaign accompanying the audio [See TANCREDO, page 22]

Judge says abortion ban language will stay as is

Proponents of ballot initiative say blue book writing is biased By Peter Marcus Special to the Mountaineer Proponents of a ballot initiative aimed at banning abortion in Colorado lost a court challenge yesterday to change contested language in the so-called Blue Book state voter guide. Denver District Judge Robert Hyatt threw out the challenge ruling that the plaintiffs did not have jurisdiction to intervene in advance of a general election. He ruled that the language of the Blue Book is a legislative function, not a decision to be made by the courts. An 18-member bipartisan council decides the language of the Blue Book. Personhood Colorado says the language in the analysis is not “fair or impartial, but in fact glaringly biased against Amendment 62.” Proponents sharply disagreed with Hyatt’s ruling yesterday, arguing that the ruling places no pressure or accountability over the Legislative Council. Proponents said they plan on appealing the decision. “It is apparent that the court believes there is no authority over the Colorado Legislative Council, and that is scary,” said Gualberto GarciaJones, co-sponsor of Amendment 62. “The Colorado Legislative Council can print anything they want to based on their own prejudices, and my tax dollars have to pay for it.” Amendment 62 would define a “person” as being “from the beginning of the biological development of that human being.” Critics of the initiative are concerned that the Personhood drive could turn doctors into criminals by making it illegal to perform in vitro fertilization procedures, prescribing birth control pills, or even conducting emergency procedures on pregnant women, such as if a fertilized egg becomes lodged in a woman’s fallopian tubes. Opponents also raise fears over the possibility of the ballot initiative essentially banning abortion and paving the way for a challenge of Roe v. Wade, setting a

precedent for cases across the country. The opposition campaign states that Amendment 62 “still goes too far,” and concerns have been raised that re-defining the term “person” in Colorado could have far-reaching legal repercussions, both intended and unintended. A similar effort failed in 2008 when it received only 27 percent of the vote. Proponents were facing an uphill battle with their lawsuit. The Blue Book has already started to show up in voters’ mailboxes, though proponents were seeking to not only have the language changed, but for new copies to be sent to voters. Since 1996, there have been five challenges in Denver District Court to the content of the Blue Book, according to the Office of Legislative Legal Services. Each of those cases was dismissed, according to the office. The most recent case, a challenge in 2006 by proponents of a marijuana-legalization initiative, set a precedent when it was dismissed because the court found that the plaintiffs did not have jurisdiction to intervene in advance of a general election, according to the Office of Legislative Legal Services. The group of pro-lifers say none of more than 70 pages of notes that they submitted to Legislative Council was used in the Blue Book. They say that the final language was not sent to them, and they didn’t find out about the language until recently when they looked online. Proponents say had they been notified of the final language sooner, they could have filed objections without having to file a lawsuit in Denver District Court. The Blue Book states in the “Arguments Against” section for the initiative that the “beginning of the biological development” is a term which is “not defined within the measure, has no established legal meaning, and is not an accepted medical or scientific term.” Proponents call the statement “erroneous and misleading,” and provided evidence of peer-reviewed medical and bioethics journals, as well as medical textbooks, which use the term “beginning of the biological development.”

Monday, September 27 – Sunday, October 3 Biking, running, yoga, golf, rafting, hiking, flyfishing... Vail in fall is the perfect season for outdoor adventures, beer & food pairings, and unforgettable dining! DAILY EVENTS: Monday, September 27 – Sunday, October 3

Vail residents and Olympians Sarah Schleper, left, and Lindsey Vonn go head to head in the giant slalom at a training camp in Valle Nevado, Chile, last week. Vonn and Schleper are both former Ski and Snowboard Club Vail racers. Photo by Kristian Saile.

Portillo training camp -bumpy, icy, incredible US Ski Team had full reign of slopes to themselves In the weeks prior to the women’s fall training camps in Portillo and Valle Nevado, Chile U.S. Ski Team coaches were, to say the least, a bit nervous. But if hindsight is 20-20, then Head Coach Alex Hoedlmoser and his crew should be able to see in the dark. “It was an incredible camp on all accounts,” said Hoedlmoser. “Leading up to it, we were all concerned. It was warm, the snow was melting and the weather reports weren’t looking all that favorable, but I kept in touch almost daily with the Austrians, who were training there before us and they kept saying the snow was good.” A few days later, Hoedlmoser got word that the Canadian men balked on Portillo entirely and in the process essentially handed full reign of the training slopes to multiple Olympic medalists Lindsey Vonn (Vail, CO) and Julia Mancuso (Olympic Valley, CA). The pair, along with Olympians Stacey Cook (Mammoth Mountain, CA), Alice McKennis (Glenwood Springs, CO), Leanne Smith (Conway, NH), Chelsea Marshall (Pittsfield, VT) and young guns Laurenne Ross (Klamath Falls, OR) and Julia Ford (Plymouth, NH) took full advantage. “As soon as the Canadians pulled the plug, our decision was clear,” he said. “We had the entire place to ourselves and could do exactly what we wanted on the training slopes. It was easily one of the most productive camps we’ve done in a long time.”

Perched at nearly 10,000 feet above the ocean (which is around three hours drive from the resort), Portillo is exposed. When the snow is falling, it’s pounding. Consequently, when the sun goes unshielded, it’s blazing hot. “We had days were it was way warmer in Portillo, than it was in Mammoth,” said Cook, a two-time Olympian. “The weather made it feel a lot like spring break at times, but the training was a swift reminder that this was work – good thing I like my job.” Mornings were those of the rooster with the athletes rubbing eyes and stretching well before sun rise. The lights Portillo’s Octagon were the first to flicker, then followed the predawn lift rides. Speed Head Coach Chip White, Hoedlmoser and their staff would have been on the training slope before the Team had breakfast. Ross, a student at Westminster College in Salt Lake City, probably paints the best picture of life in Portillo in her latest blog entry at http://lalalaurenne. “It was tough on all of us,” said Hoedlmoser. “The coaches were on the snow well before the sun came up and most days we were out there working on it until after dark. Every day new rocks were poking through and towards the last part of the camp, we were using a cat to push snow onto the lower portion of the slope, but Portillo really came through with its resources and [See TRAINING CAMP, page 18]

Avonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Town Council approved an ordinance on first reading which adopts a revised Noxious Weed Management Plan during their regularly scheduled Council meeting on Tuesday. A second reading of the ordinance will be held October 12th at which time the public hearing will continue.â&#x20AC;¨ The ordinance amends the April version of Avonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Noxious Weed Management Plan to include several other species regulated by the State of Colorado and designated for control or eradication. The Plan outlines strategies for combating weeds, and it assigns responsibility for weed management to property owners and the Town for town-owned and maintained land. â&#x20AC;¨ Avonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Noxious Weed Management Plan was reviewed by State of Colorado Department of Agriculture and Colorado State Extension staff with expertise on weeds and pest management. Avonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Plan includes all of the Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s A-list species, twenty-six List-B species, and one additional locally problematic weedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Yellow Sweet Clover (Melilotus officinalis). Species were added to this plan as compared to the April version at the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request because they were identified for control or eradication in Eagle County. In the future, Avonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s list will automatically update as new species are added to the state list. â&#x20AC;¨ Avonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mandate for nearly all noxious weeds is to, at a minimum, control their spread. This means that plants are not allowed to go to seed, and plants which have already flowered must be physically removed â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including the seed pods. â&#x20AC;¨ The Noxious Weed Management Plan treats the Russian Olive tree (Elaeagnus angustifoliais) uniquely by allowing its continued presence if the tree is more than 25 feet from a water course and the property owner commits in writing to controlling its spread. Whenever a tree is removed, Avon property owners must amend their landscaping plan through Community Development. â&#x20AC;¨ In addition to the Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s many regulated species, the Town of Avon included yellow sweet clover (Melilotus officinalis) on its noxious weed list. Yellow Sweet Clover was included in the original April list because it is a non-native plant, it has high seed and pollen production, it is pervasive in disturbed sites throughout Avon outcompeting native vegetation for nutrients and sunlight, and it is detrimental to most animals if ingested. According to Crystal Andrews, State of Colorado Department of Agriculture, the state is monitoring this species as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;potential threatâ&#x20AC;?.â&#x20AC;¨ Approval of the ordinance fulfills a state requirement for a 30-day public notice period. Public notice for the September 28th hearing was posted on August 27th at the Townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s customary public notice locations. â&#x20AC;¨ For more information and for a list of noxious weeds, call Avon Public Works at 970-748-4100, e-mail questions to, or visit www.avon. org/noxiousweeds. â&#x20AC;¨

An Author and Burro coming to Avon Public Library Sunday Join the Avon Public Library for an author and burro event this Sunday, where author Lyn Bezek will discuss her latest book, “On the Backs of Burros.” Dave TenEyck, burro racer and director of the Leadville Boom Days Burro Race, will bring his three burros to visit the Avon Public Library. Bezek’s new book is a complete look at the history of burros and how they have helped to shape Colorado and the West. Dating back to the Spanish exploration of the New World, the burro has been a special part of the land that is now called Colorado. Despite abuse, ridicule, torture, and inhumane working environments, this little animal has maintained a dignity, trustworthiness, and unconditional affection that is legendary. Bezek believes that “there is a lot that we can learn

from the burro, but we need to know its story before we can understand the amazing spirit and laudable characteristics of this humble creature.” It is the hope of the authors (Bezek and P. David Smith), that with the help of this book, these forgotten symbols of the Old West will continue to bless Colorado with their unique and civilizing influence. TenEyck has spent his life on two difficult endeavors: running a manufacturing factory and trying to figure out how to make a donkey run faster. He’s not sure which one is more difficult, but he is sure that working with donkeys is more enjoyable. He recently completed his 21st season of burro racing and still has fun with it. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Avon Public Library at 949-6797.

Government gets $2.25 billion for Citigroup shares

The government said yesterday it raised $2.25 billion from the sale of trust-preferred shares that it held in Citigroup Inc., moving to recoup the costs incurred in the $700 billion financial bailout.The Treasury Department also announced it has sold an additional 1.5 billion shares of Citigroup common stock, bringing the total amount it has raised from the sale of Citigroup common stock to $16.4 billion.

Stocks sizzled in third quarter, but will it last?

When you open your quarterly financial statements in the next few weeks, you might be both pleased and puzzled. Despite the economic doldrums, the stock market put together a sizzling 11 percent return over the past three months, including its best September since 1939. For a time yesterday, the Dow Jones industrial average appeared headed for 11,000. But the gains are deceptive, market analysts say. While news about the economy has improved, there’s no reason to believe it’s roaring back. And the big advance was driven by a relatively small number of traders playing with a lot of money.

Dozens charged in global computer virus scam

Hackers in eastern Europe used computer viruses to steal usernames and passwords, and teamed up with foreign students who opened bank accounts in the U.S. to snatch at least $3 million from American bank accounts, authorities said yesterday in announcing charges against more than 80 people. Thirty-seven people were charged in court papers unsealed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan with conspiracy to commit bank fraud, money laundering, false identification use and passport fraud.

Fisher-Price recalling more than 11 million products

Six of them required medical attention. The trikes - some of which feature popular characters like Dora the Explorer and Barbie - have a protruding plastic ignition key near the seat that children can strike, sit on or fall on, leading to injuries that the commission said can include genital bleeding.

Gates, Buffett talk to China about charity

Britney Spears is a dream for Fox’s hit musical “Glee.” Tuesday’s episode that featured the star in some dream-sequence cameos drew an estimated 13.5 million viewers. The Nielsen Co. says it was the second most-watched episode of the show ever, behind last spring’s return from a hiatus.

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and billionaire investor Warren Buffett said yesterday they were impressed by the passion they saw among China’s super rich for giving back to society during a dinner for Chinese millionaires. The American businessmen said they will try to hold a similar event in India next year. The dinner to discuss philanthropy - hosted by Gates and Buffett in a mansion on the outskirts of Beijing - initially sparked concern among some of China’s wealthy that they would be pressured into contributions. But the Americans repeatedly said they merely wanted to start a discussion about the best ways to give in China as the country develops mega-fortunes for the first time.

The Alaska Dispatch newspaper had reported that a state Alcohol and Control Board investigator visited its office, asking for copies of raw video shot during the performance at Rumrunners Old Towne Bar and Grill last week. Palin is 19 and could only legally be in the establishment if accompanied by a parent, spouse or legal guardian over 21. State law also would allow her to be there if it’s been designated as a bona fide restaurant, and she was there only to eat.

NC Patrol: 4 people killed in wreck on wet road

Four people, including two children, were killed yesterday when the sport utility vehicle they were traveling in skidded off a rain-slicked highway and tumbled into a ditch filled with water, troopers said.State Highway Patrol Trooper Gary Edwards said troopers initially reported five people were killed because two children, 3-year-old twins, did not have a pulse when emergency workers arrived on scene.

Emanuel leaving White House today

White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel is set to give up his influential national post today to begin a run for Chicago mayor, a job he has long coveted but won’t win unless he persuades voters he’s still one of them. People close to Emanuel said he will fly home over the weekend and hit the streets Monday to talk to voters, after announcing his resignation today. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs says only that President Barack Obama will make a “personnel announcement” today morning, but even his vague comments made it eminently clear Emanuel is leaving.”He intends to run for mayor,” one person close to Emanuel told The Associated Press, requesting anonymity to avoid preempting the announcement.

Senate votes to turn down volume on TV commercials

Legislation to turn down the volume on those loud TV commercials that send couch potatoes diving for their remote controls looks like it’ll soon become law. The Senate unanimously passed a bill late Wednesday to require television stations and cable companies to keep commercials at the same volume as the programs they interrupt. The House has passed similar legislation. Before it can become law, minor differences between the two versions have to be worked out when Congress returns to Washington after the Nov. 2 election.

Pakistan cuts NATO supply line after border firing

Pakistan closed the most important supply route for U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan after a coalition helicopter attack killed three Pakistani soldiers at a border post yesterday, raising tensions in a vital relationship for both Islamabad and Washington. NATO said its helicopters entered Pakistani airspace and hit a target only after receiving ground fire. The alliance expressed condolences to the families of the soldiers and said both nations would investigate the in-

cident. A lengthy ban on supply trucks would place intense strain on the U.S.-Pakistani relationship and hurt the Afghan war effort. But that was seen as unlikely, as neither Islamabad nor Washington can afford a meltdown in ties at a crucial time in the 9-year-old war.

AIG bailout exit doesn’t resolve losses from TARP

American International Group finally has a plan to exit the biggest of the Wall Street bailouts a month before midterm elections. But much as embattled Democrats might wish otherwise, the book on TARP won’t close anytime soon. There’s no guarantee taxpayers who gave AIG a $182 billion bailout will be made whole under the plan the company announced yesterday. Under the deal, Treasury will swap its majority stake in AIG for common stock and then sell those shares over time. The government loses its authority to tap Troubled Asset Relief Program funds on Sunday. Democrats facing tough re-elections hope voters will see the bailouts as nearing an end.

Economy loses speed in spring; more weakness ahead

The nation’s economic growth tailed off sharply in the spring and probably isn’t faring any better now. Gross domestic product - the broadest measure of the economy’s health - expanded at a feeble 1.7 percent annual rate in the April-June quarter, The Commerce Department reported yesterday. That’s a notch higher than the 1.6 percent growth rate the government estimated a month ago. The slight change was mostly due to a little more spending by consumers than first estimated. Still, that’s not enough to have a major impact on the economy.The second quarter estimate is a sharp slowdown from a 3.7 percent growth rate logged in the first quarter.

J&J, FDA leaders take heat for ‘phantom’ recall

Johnson & Johnson executives and the Food and Drug Administration both shouldered the blame yesterday for a secret recall in which hired contractors quietly bought up defective painkillers to clear them from store shelves. J&J Chief Executive William Weldon told House lawmakers the company “made a mistake” in conducting the so-called “phantom recall,” which is one of a string of problems that have drawn congressional scrutiny In the same committee hearing, the FDA’s deputy commissioner, Dr. Joshua Sharfstein, said his agency should have acted sooner to halt J&J’s plan. At the same time, though, he stressed that regulators were not

aware of the deceptive nature of the recall.

Kids with ADHD more likely to have missing DNA

Children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder are twice as likely to have missing or extra chromosomes than other children - the first evidence that the disorder is genetic, a new study says. British researchers compared the genomes of 366 white British children from 5 to 17 years old with attention deficit hyperactivity, or ADHD, to those of more than 1,000 similar children without the disorder. The scientists focused on a sequence of genes linked to brain development that has previously been connected to conditions like autism and schizophrenia.

Cholera spreading at ‘alarming’ rate

An alarming number of new cholera cases have been reported in the West African nations of Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Nigeria, an international aid agency said yesterday. While cholera is endemic to the region, far more cases than usual have been reported, said the U.K.-based office of Doctors Without Borders. Nigeria experienced its worst cholera outbreak in 19 years earlier this month when 13,000 were sickened and nearly 800 died in two months. That outbreak then spread to neighboring Cameroon, Chad and Niger, where more than 300 people died.

S. African AIDS orphans aging

When the Mohau children’s home opened in 1997, orphans with AIDS died every other day. But these days, not one child has been lost in seven years - and as they age with the help of drugs they face the teen complexities of dating and sex.As the population of children affected by HIV/AIDS ages, they need specialized care, notes Harry Moultrie, of Enhancing Children’s HIV Outcomes, an agency based in Johannesburg which helps the health department distribute medicine and provide services.

Exercise could cut womb cancer risk by 30 percent

Women who regularly work up a sweat exercising have a 30 percent lower risk of developing endometrial cancer, a new study says. Researchers at the United States’ National Cancer Institute analyzed 14 previous studies and found physical activity cuts the risk of endometrial cancer by 20 to 40 percent when compared to sedentary women. The study was published online Wednesday in the British [See THE UPDATE, page 14]

Journal of Cancer. It was paid for by the National Cancer Institute. Scientists have long known that exercise cuts your risk of cancers including the breast, colon, esophagus and kidney. Excess body fat sometimes leads to higher hormone levels, which in turn, may elevate the risk of cancer.

Death toll rises to 5 in Jamaican floods, slides

Searchers scoured muddy river banks and debrisclogged gullies for more victims of Tropical Storm Nicole yesterday as the confirmed death toll in Jamaica from floods and mudslides rose to five. Rain continued to fall on the capital, Kingston, and emergency workers were trying to locate at least 14 more missing people, about half of whom were believed to have been swept away in landslides that roared through a shantytown. Officials warned the death toll was certain to rise as they rushed to confirm several reports of storm fatalities.

Mexico officials: Mayor killed in $6,000 hit

Consignment Furniture... Redefined

Two men were arrested for killing a small-town Mexican mayor for $6,000 in a land dispute, prosecutors said yesterday. Nuevo Leon state Attorney General Alejandro Garza y Garza ruled out the involvement of drug gangs that have been blamed for the assassination of many other mayors in Mexico. Prisciliano Rodriguez, mayor of Doctor Gonzalez, was gunned down Sept. 23 along with an aide. He was the fourth mayor killed in northeastern Mexico in a month.

Al-Qaida group releases tape of French hostages

New Furniture Daily!


A tape released yesterday on a jihadist forum shows the first images of a group of hostages including five French citizens since they were seized two weeks ago in Niger by an al-Qaida offshoot and taken into the desert. The four-minute tape shows still images of the hostages sitting cross-legged in the sand with a gently sloping dune behind them. French officials believe the seven hostages are now in the bordering West African nation of Mali. The hostages were grabbed in the middle of the night on Sept. 16 from their guarded villas in the uranium mining town of Arlit in Niger where they were working for French nuclear giant Areva.

The French Foreign Ministry said the tape was encouraging because its images show the hostages alive.

Kurdish rebels extend cease-fire against Turkey

A leader of Kurdish rebels seeking greater autonomy in Turkey said yesterday the group will extend its unilateral cease-fire for another month in hopes of opening talks with Turkish leaders. Murad Karialan, the co-president of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, said there is a possibility for an open-ended halt to attacks if Turkey agrees to concessions such as releasing jailed Kurdish politicians. But Turkey has ignored all PKK cease-fire declarations in the past.

Official: Germans, Brits behind Europe terror plot

Eight Germans and two British brothers are at the heart of an al-Qaida-linked terror plot against European cities, but the plan is still in its early stages, with the suspects calling acquaintances in Europe to plan logistics, a Pakistani intelligence official said yesterday. One of the Britons died in a recent CIA missile strike, he said. The revelations underscore the role of Pakistan as a haven for many would-be Islamist militants with foreign ties, a worrying prospect for Western countries who face additional challenges when tracking terror suspects among citizens who have passports and easier access to their shores. Pakistan, Britain and Germany are tracking the suspects and intercepting their phone calls, the official told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release the information to the media.

NKorea prints photos of heir apparent Kim Jong Un

Police said a patrol officer stopped the vehicle for having a cracked windshield. Police said Chamberlain’s blood-alcohol level was 0.13 percent. Michigan’s legal limit is 0.08.

Ochocinco cereal box uses sex-line number

Charity-minded callers are getting intercepted by a phone-sex line because of a typo on Chad Ochocinco’s Cereal boxes. The phone number is supposed to connect callers to Feed the Children, which benefits from sales of the Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver’s cereal. But the box has the wrong toll-free prefix, meaning callers get a seductive-sounding woman who makes risque suggestions and then asks for a credit card number.

Judge hands out condoms hidden in acorns

Police said a district judge from Intercourse, Pa., hid condoms inside acorns and handed them out to women in the state Capitol complex last week. A summary charge of disorderly conduct was filed Tuesday against Isaac H. Stoltzfus, who presides over low-level cases as a district judge in Lancaster County. The citation from Capitol Police said the 58-yearold jurist gave the acorns to unsuspecting women, who were offended when they discovered the contents.

Denver firefighters battle flames, fleeing bedbugs

Denver firefighters ran into more than the normal hazards at a house fire. Crews responding to the blaze Wednesday also had to battle bedbugs, the bloodsucking insects quickly becoming the scourge of households and businesses across the country. Lt. Phil Champagne of the Denver Fire Department tells The Denver Post that firefighters had to be decontaminated after going into an attic where items were infested with bedbugs. The bugs scurried away from the flames and latched on to firefighters’ equipment and gear. Some of the gear had to bagged so the bugs wouldn’t get a free ride to the firehouse.

EPA seeks to regulate chemical in water

The Environmental Protection Agency wants to regulate a toxic chemical used in rocket fuel that has contaminated drinking water supplies, reversing a decision made under the Bush administration. A government official briefed by the EPA told The Associated Press yesterday night that the agency has proposed that the chemical, perchlorate, be regulated under the Safe Drinking Water Act. The official, who did not want to be named because a final decision has not been made, said the plan is now under interagency review. Perchlorate has been found in drinking water in at least 35 states at levels high enough to interfere with thyroid function and pose developmental problems in humans, particularly for babies and fetuses.

Nevada Senate candidates dodge voters, each other

Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Republican rival Sharron Angle, both known for their verbal gaffes, are avoiding potentially unfriendly voters as much as each other. In the nation’s most prominent Senate battle, only one debate has been scheduled. Meanwhile, the candidates have made few public appearances at events where they might face tough questions. Nevada isn’t an Iowa or a New Hampshire. There’s no tradition of candidates feasting on funnel cake at the county fair or having a pint with constituents at the corner pub. Still, voters say they want more from the candidates, who have largely waged a bruising campaign through attack ads.

Woods-Stricker, Mickelson-Johnson highlight pairings at Ryder Cup The man who spoiled the British Open in 2009, was forgotten by his captain today during the squad announcement at the Ryder Cup opening ceremony Thursday. U.S. captain Corey Pavin, his voice trembling, introduced the 11 players on his squad and was about to sit down when he realized each team had 12 to a side. He somehow overlooked the guy who has over 1 million fans on Twitter, but no golf fans seem to like that much ... Stewart Cink. Then came the lineups for the opening session, with Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker in the third slot. It was the first time since 1999 that Woods was not in the first match, leading European captain Colin Montgomerie to suggest the Americans were trying to hide him. Leading off for the Americans in fourballs is Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson, a big hitter whose driver broke on the range. Asked if Europe already felt it was 1-up based on

2010 Ryder Cup Pairings (Friday) • Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson vs. Lee Westwood and Martin Kaymer • Stewart Cink and Matt Kuchar vs. Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell • Steve Stricker and Tiger Woods vs. Ian Poulter and Ross Fisher • Bubba Watson and Jeff Overton vs. Luke Donald and Padraig Harrington Pavin’s gaffe, Montgomerie said: “I suppose that was a mistake. He just missed the one. He read the wrong name, but that was just unfortunate. I think he was very, very good in covering his tracks. It went very well. It was a first-class show up there. “And yes,” he added, “we are 1 up.” It was evident on the final day of practice, when fans

gave a standing ovation from the bleachers behind the greens on the back nine of Celtic Manor just at the sight of the European players approaching the green. The Americans, who won two years ago at Valhalla to end a decade of European dominance, need only 14 points from the 28 matches to take the 17-inch gold trophy back home. “I cannot wait,” said Ian Poulter, who will join Ross Fisher in taking on the Woods-Stricker tandem. “This crowd tomorrow is going to be electric. The roar on that first tee will be sensational. I can’t wait to hear it and I can’t wait to get pumped for it. I can’t wait to give them some feedback.” Stricker is the 12th partner for Woods in this event— two short of the Ryder Cup record. But everyone saw this one coming. They went 4-0 at the Presidents Cup last year, the first tandem in any cup to do that in 30 years.

Nadal wins opening match in Thailand Rafael Nadal dispatched qualifier Ruben Bemelmans 6-1, 6-4 Thursday in his Thailand Open debut. In his first match since winning the U.S. Open, the top-ranked Nadal lost only eight points on serve. Nadal arrived in Thailand nine days ago, receiving a hero’s welcome from government and sports officials when he landed in Bangkok. In Friday’s quarterfinals, Nadal will meet either Olivier Rochus or Mikhail Kukushkin. Second-seeded Fernando Verdasco lost to Benjamin Becker 6-4, 6-4. Verdasco, who accepted a wild card to play, fell behind 4-0 in the first set. Verdasco dropped the ninth game of the second set on a double-fault, and Becker held serve with an impressive volley to close the match.

“It was tough. I was practicing well but the match was different,” Verdasco said. “He played better than me. He adapted better than me, he served well and didn’t make many unforced errors. He deserved the victory more than me.” Seventh-seeded Viktor Troicki—last year’s finalist— lost 7-6 (4), 6-2 to Jarkko Nieminen. With a first-round bye, Nadal spent time in the beach town of Hua Hin. He took part in a religious ceremony with Buddhist monks and planted a tree in King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s campaign against global warming. Back in Bangkok, he delayed a visit with Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva and Parliament so he could practice. He showed no rust after completing the career Grand Slam in New York.

Contador tests positive for doping Three-time Tour de France champion blames contaminated meat By Ciaran Giles and John Leicester The Associated Press Three-time Tour de France champion, Alberto Contador has been suspended after testing positive for the banned substance clenbuterol that he says is the result of eating a piece of filet mignon. Contador contaminated meat caused his positive doping test for a “very small concentration” of the banned substance. It was found in his urine sample on July 21 at the Tour, according to the International Cycling Union, the sport’s governing body. “The idea of anyone questioning my Tour victory does not worry me,” the Spanish cyclist said. “I am not going to let something like this destroy everything I have done.” He was provisionally suspended after a World Anti-Doping Agency lab in Germany determined both A and B samples were positive. The UCI said the amount of clenbuterol in Contador’s sample was “400 time(s) less than what the antidoping laboratories accredited by WADA must be able to detect.” Speaking at a news conference in his hometown near Madrid, Contador said, “I think this is going to be resolved in a clear way. With the truth behind you, you can speak loud and clear, and I am confident justice will prevail.” Contador said the beef was brought across the border from Spain to France by a Spanish cycling organizer, Jose Luis Lopez Cerron, during a Tour rest day and at the request of the team’s chef. Cerron said earlier Thursday on Spanish radio that he was a friend of the chef, who had complained of poor quality meat at the hotel where the team was staying. Lopez Cerron said he bought filet mignon for the team in the Spanish border town of Irun on his way to Pau, France. Clenbuterol is sometimes given to cows, pigs and other animals to increase their growth rate. Contador said he and four other Astana teammates ate the beef on July 20 and that he was the only one who underwent a doping test on July 21. He ate more of the meat that day, explaining that although it wasn’t normal to eat steak a day before racing, it was too good to waste. He said he learned of the test results on Aug. 24 and met with UCI doctors two days later. “On the 26th we talked at length about how all this had happened. The UCI itself told me to my face that it was a case of food contamination,” Contador said.

Cyclist Alberto Contador of Spain takes his seat to give a press conference near Madrid yesterday. The three-time Tour de France champion tested positive for a banned drug while winning this year’s race and has been suspended by cycling’s governing body. Contador says the very small concentration of clenbuteral is due to a contaminated piece of meat. AP Photo.

The Spaniard said he decided to go public because a German television station was aware of the case, but said it would have been better for cycling’s image if it could have been handled internally. He called his suspension by the UCI “a true mistake.” “What a crazy day in cycling with the news about Contador,” Andy Schleck, who held the yellow jersey at this year’s Tour for many stages, said on Twitter. “I only heard about it in the press. I hope he is innocent and I think he deserves the right to defend himself now.” The allegations are the latest to hit a sport whose credibility has been battered by doping scandals. Within hours of Contador’s case becoming public, the UCI announced that two Spanish riders failed drug tests during the Spanish Vuelta in September — runner-up Ezequiel Mosquera and David Garcia. The UCI said they tested positive for hydroxyethyl starch, which increases blood volume. With seven-time Tour champion Lance Armstrong now back in retirement, Contador is cycling’s biggest star, so it could be devastating for the sport if the Spanish rider is found to have cheated. The UCI’s statement gave no indication of whether Contador will be stripped of his latest Tour title or be banned. If Tour officials do reclaim his title, Contador would be just the second cyclist to be forced to relinquish it. The first was American Floyd Landis, who was stripped of his 2006 Tour title after a positive test. For years, Landis denied doping but admitted this spring that he used performance-enhancing drugs. By investing millions of dollars in re-

cent years in what is widely regarded as one of the most stringent anti-doping regimes anywhere, cycling authorities hoped to eradicate widespread doping by riders, particularly in their showcase race. Although just 27, Contador is already the greatest rider of his generation. His victories at the Tour starting in 2007 and at other major races were seen as a possible break from cycling’s dirty past. WADA director general David Howman told The Associated Press that testing positive for even the most minute amounts of clenbuterol could be enough to sanction an athlete, although he declined to discuss the specifics of Contador’s case. “The issue is the lab has detected this. They have the responsibility for pursuing. There is no such thing as a limit where you don’t have to prosecute cases. This is not a substance that has a threshold,” said Howman, reached by telephone as he was changing planes in Dubai on his way to the Commonwealth Games in India. “Once the lab records an adverse finding, it’s an adverse finding and it has to be followed up.” “Clenbuterol is a substance that has been used for over 20 to 30 years,” he added. “It is not anything new. Nobody has ever suggested it is something you can take inadvertently.” Douwe de Boer, a Dutch anti-doping expert hired by Contador to study his test, said the rider told him that smaller traces of clenbuterol also were found in his urine in the two days after the positive result but were so minute that the UCI classed them as negative.

Clenbuterol has anabolic properties that build muscle while burning fat. It is commonly given to horses to treat breathing problems. In medicine, it is used to treat asthma. In similar ways to stimulant drugs such as amphetamine or ephedrine, it can increase the heart rate and body temperature. Considering the history of this sport, some people are having trouble buying Alberto’s beefy defense. Some are already speculating that Contador might have used Clenbuterol early in the season, withdrawn some of his blood, for the purposes of transfusing, then put blood back into his body during the while unaware that it still contained trace amounts of Clenbuterol. reports that German investigative journalist Hans Joachim Seppelt, of ARD TV, who told the cycling website “ARD has obtained the exact values from Spain. This shows that it is not very likely that we are dealing with contaminated foods, especially in light of the fact that in Europe, it is highly unlikely that foods, such as meat, are contaminated with Clenbuterol. It happens in Asian countries, but it is strictly prohibited in Europe. Also, there were no other positive test cases with contaminated meat, so the statement from Contador is not credible.” On the other side of the coin, also reported that U.S. anti-doping expert Paul Scott, who describes the transfusion scenario as “fanciful, but not impossible. The problem,” says Scott, former Director of Clients at the UCLA Olympic Analytical Laboratory and a founder of the Agency for Cycling Ethics, Inc., “is that it’s not a very simple explanation, and there is a very simple explanation: Legally and illegally, he says, Clenbuterol is commonly added to the feed of cows, pigs, even chickens. It is far more widespread in the environment -not just in milk and meat, but in the water supply -- than is commonly realized. Unless the World Anti-Doping Agency sets some threshold amount, to allow for trace amounts from, say, milk, or the occasionally smuggled steak, “you’re going to start seeing a lot of positives from people who are getting it” from their food and drink. Nearly as stunning as Contador’s bad news is the ADR’s report that, up until it broke the news, UCI president Pat McQuaid was denying that the three-time Tour winner had returned a positive test. The UCI has faced allegations in the past that it attempts to cover up positive tests to protect riders and the sport.

clip reads: “Tancredo is looking forward to a two-man race with liberal Mayor John Hickenlooper.” The statement implies that Maes’ statements were the equivalent of a promise to drop from the race if his numbers ever fell below the 20 percent mark, a claim the Maes campaign disputes. Maes’ Communications Director Nate Strauch said that Maes has the same philosophy he has always had on debate invitations – they should be left up to the organizers. The number used by Maes in the interview was “hypothetical,” he said, and he doesn’t expect Maes will be left out of any debates because of his statements. “Clearly every sponsor is going to want to have the Republican party nominee,” he said.

NOT QUITE HIDDEN GEMS inconveniences the recreationists. “If we can continue to build consensus around those areas, then my office will continue to look into proposing (more wilderness area) in future sessions,” Polis said. Pete Kolbenschalg, a Paonia resident and director of the Hidden Gems campaign, said HR-6280 is a huge step in the right direction. “I’m happy that we’ve crossed this threshold. It’s a huge milestone for our efforts, and I’m pleased with the work Congressman Polis and his staff have done,” Kolbenschlag said. “We will continue to keep our eye on other lands that do not qualify.” The legislation also earned the support of the Eagle County Commissioners. Commissioner Jon Stavney said it will “help protect some of the more vulnerable lands adjacent to existing wilderness, while still leaving plenty of public lands for the mixed uses many of our residents enjoy. This is a real gift to future Eagle County residents.” Detractors, however, are saying the process was rushed. Lance Trujillo, president of the Holy Cross Powder Hounds snowmobile club, said he was happy that lower Piney was


removed but was surprised the legislation was proposed so soon. “Polis said he was really going to take his time with this… It’s definitely moved a lot quicker than we thought it would,” Trujillo said Meanwhile, Jack Albright, vice president for the White River Forest Alliance (WRFA), said the group is not as opposed to the legislation as they once were, and people should note the congressman’s proposal is not Hidden Gems. Albright said WRFA seeks to allow snowmobile access at high altitudes in the Hoosier Ridge area during “deepest part of winter” when big game species have migrated out of the area, as well as access to lower Piney, which has already been removed from the congressman’s proposal. If these changes are made, they will no longer actively oppose the legislation, but are “unlikely” to support it, he said. Both Trujillo and Albright believe the timing of this legislation is more relevant to the upcoming election than anything else. The next step in the legislative process is for the bill to be referred to the House Natural Resources Committee for review.

cused and happy that they had the time off to learn some new things, but definitely also glad to have his playing partner (Healey) back in town, he said. They will also be joined tonight by Hardscrabble’s Adam Palmer on the keys, which is an element the band has long wanted to incorporate into their sound. At tonight’s party, Hustle will be selling CD recordings from their last show before the hiatus for $5. Along the same lines, their main priority moving forward will be to finally get into the studio to lay down a first album. Hustle has come a long way since its humble formation in 2006. The band originally consisted of only three members (Sean, Justin and Pete) who met in Edwards, working and hanging out at some of the restaurants in town. The band came together as a spin-off of Justin and Sean’s band, “Thumbs Are Huge.” Six months later, at gig in town, Ben Koelker noticed the guys were missing a bassist. A guitarist originally, Ben had never actually played the bass but decided to give it shot. “My old man played the bass, and I said I’ll give it three songs and if I suck, then forget it. But, it felt good. So we went with it.” Since that time, the band has developed a huge following of locals that have anticipated tonight’s show for a while. The party starts at 10 p.m. and is free.
