Golden Peak to host World’s best November ski training By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer The guns on Golden Peak could go off any day now. The automated snow-blowing system will kick in as soon as the temperature drops below 32 degrees. And with infrastructure that is unparalleled anywhere in the world, the hill could be ready for grooming within 48 to 72 hours after the guns start firing. November 1 is the earliest day Ski and Snowboard Club Vail (SSCV), who funds the operation, could get on the hill. Since the $3 million renovation last year, Golden Peak has become a renowned early season training arena, said by many to be the best in the world for the month of November. It’s not just SSCV that thinks Golden Peak is the place to be in November. The arena will serve as a training site for the U.S. Ski Team, the Austrians, Germans, Fins, and Japanese, as well as a host of club

and university teams from around North America. But the facility goes far beyond alpine ski racing. A complete Nordic loop, mogul training lane, halfpipe, terrain park and Katal landing pad compliment the race training, making for an all-around ski and snowboard early season playground. In partnership with Vail Resorts, who handles the facility’s operations, SSCV was able to add five new snowmaking towers to the terrain park area, which last season helped get the halfpipe open a full month earlier than in previous years. “It gives our athletes a phenomenal edge – phenomenal from the standpoint of being able to spend that much time on snow during a critical preparation period,” said Aldo Radamus, executive director of SSCV, who envisioned the project. “The quality of the training that is available and the fact that the best skiers in the world are here is amazing,” Radamus added. “The kids


have the additional benefit of seeing what the best look like and trying to imitate it. It’s like sharing ice time with the Colorado Avalanche.” SSCV previously had to travel over the pass at additional expense for early season training at Copper, Keystone, A Basin and Loveland. So having the new Golden Peak arena saves local families time and money, in addition to providing superior training. The biggest difference in terms of infrastructure on Golden Peak compared to, say, Vail’s nearby Born Free run, is the number of guns. The facility has at least twice as many snow guns per length of the hill compared to a state-of-the-art recreational slope – allowing them to make a high volume of snow in the shortest amount of time. Another element that sets Golden Peak apart from other early-season training arenas is the snow preparation, which is specifically formu[See GOLDEN PEAK, page 25]

Local ski retailer having huge sale tomorrow in Edwards to gear up for new gig at competition center

The latest, greatest addition to the Golden Peak training center might just be Fuxi. The legendary local retailer will be setting up a “one-stop shop” on the hill, at the base and at the Manor Vail, where many of the teams from out of town will be staying. It’s all a part of Fuxi’s master FUXI plan to bring the best quality gear to the ski and snowboard community at affordable prices.

Hoy for Sheriff . . . Joe Hoy should remain as Eagle County Sheriff. Living in the Vail valley one is aware that we are in tough economic times. Real estate taxes will go down, and the consequence is the county government budget is going to take a hit. Numerous services will be cut and the budget for the Sheriff’s Office is likely to take its share. Of all the services the county provides, public safety is among the most important. I hope the County Commissioners’ think long and hard about how much they cut this critical department, but cut it I am sure they will. Given the two candidates for Sheriff, the one

As a registered Democrat in Eagle County, on November 2nd the citizens of Eagle County will have the chance to make their voices heard for the position of Eagle County Sheriff. I have known James Van Beek since he was a new Sheriff’s Deputy for Eagle County, and have had to opportunity to work with him in Afghanistan as part of the Afghanistan Civilian Assistance Support program (ACAS). Without a doubt the citizens of Eagle County will not find a more professional, dedicated individual who is committed to the philosophy of community oriented policing than

James Van Beek. As a Sheriff’s Deputy Van Beek was regularly out of his vehicle communicating with the citizens and businesses of Eagle County. James Van Beek was not the type of officer to drive by citizens without waving or making a gesture of friendship. Once he was promoted to an investigator he handled all his cases with the utmost integrity. I never heard James make the statement “I will just charge them and let the courts sort it out.� In a judicial system that is overburdened, he understood the consequences for the victims as well as individuals when charges

are hastily brought against someone; only to have the cases dropped or dismissed at a later date resulting in an individual having an unjust criminal allegation or a criminal to go free. When elected as Sheriff of Eagle County James Van Beek will bring these same philosophies and commitment to the community. I have been following the letters to the editors and blog comments about James Van Beek’s lack of supervision experience. I did not work with him when he was a Regional Commander in Kosovo, where he supervised close to a 100 interna[See LETTERS, page 25]

Ballet on the ballot Paul Fiorino represents the arts as unaffiliated candidate for Governor By Matt Minich Mountaineer Staff Writer

Unaffiliated Gubernatorial candidate Paul Fiorino came through Vail Valley yesterday while out on the campaign trail. He said if elected, he’ll go county to county singing, dancing and listening to voters.

In 2011, Paul Noel Fiorino hopes to perform his pirouettes in a new venue: the Governor’s mansion. A ballet dancer educated at the School of American Ballet in New York City, Fiorino said, if elected, he will tour the state to hear concerns from Colorado citizens as well as showcase his talents. He was stumping here in the Vail Valley yesterday. “I’ll dance for them, I’ll sing for them,” he said, “but I’ll also listen to them.” The sight of Fiorino in slippers and tights may not be a new one to some locals. In the 1980s, he said, he helped get dance off the ground in Vail. He was the

He spent time as the president of the Colorado Arts Council, and is the current president of the Golden Triangle Museum District in Denver. Fiorino defines himself as an advocate for the arts, but said he hasn’t been endorsed by the Colorado Arts Council or any other major arts association in the state. “I’m not looking for endorsements,” he said. “If they come my way, fine.” In an interview with the Mountaineer, Fiorino didn’t provide any specific policies that he would enact if elected Governor, but instead said his experience as an artist and an athlete made him a natural choice for the position. “We’re the healthiest state, you know, [See PAUL FIORINO, page 26]

First Lady stumps for Bennet ‘Mom-in-chief’ Michelle Obama visits Coloo to support Senator By Peter Marcus Special to the Mountaineer First Lady Michelle Obama at a fundraiser in Englewood yesterday for Democrat U.S. Senate candidate Michael Bennet said she is a supporter of Bennet because as a mother she believes Bennet is working for a positive future for her children. The fundraiser, held at an upscale private residence in Cherry Hills, raised about $270,000 for the Bennet campaign, according to a campaign spokesman. About 300 people attended the $250-and-up luncheon — an event attended by such local Democrat heavyweights as Gov. Bill Ritter — who appointed Bennet to the Senate in January 2009 — and Secretary of State Bernie Buescher. Obama spoke for about 35 minutes, discussing how she views herself as the “mom-in-chief,” arguing that the focus for lawmakers should be on creating a better future for the nation’s children. She said Bennet is working for that future.


Friday, October 15, 2010

“My children are at the center of my world,” said Obama. “My hopes for their future is really at the heart of every single thing that I do, and that’s really why I wanted to be here for this. I wanted to be here for Michael because I come at this really more as a mother than anything else.” Michelle Obama, whose approval rating trumps that of her president husband, has been called upon by Democrats to hit the campaign trail for them. The First Lady is making campaign stops in seven states, including Colorado yesterday. While she spent some of her speech discussing Bennet’s accomplishments, Obama spent a significant amount of time highlighting the work her husband has done as president. She pointed to health reform and the signing of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act as shining examples. In introducing Obama, Bennet spoke of his commitment to his children and the future for the nation’s children.

“What we share, what we hold in common is aspirations that we have for our kids and our grandkids for this state and for our country that are so much more important and so much more durable and so much more relevant whether we are Republicans or Democrats or unaffiliated voters than the politics that you’re seeing play out on your TV,” said Bennet. “And it’s up to us to lift up those aspirations …” The First Lady also pushed Democrats at the fundraiser to think back to the excitement and energy they shared during Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign, and encouraged them to “have his back.” “One thing I said out on the campaign trail, I said to you that if I put Barack out there with my family, you all would have to have his back … and you told me you would,” Obama told the audience. “And in order to have his back, we’re gonna need people like Michael … we need all of you to help. We need you all to be pumped up, fired up and ready to go.”

Gov candidates talk business By Gene Davis Special to the Mountaineer

The three main gubernatorial candidates got down to business yesterday during a debate sponsored by the Colorado Association of Commerce and Industry, the state chamber of commerce. The Denver debate focused on business issues and started with American Constitution Party candidate Tom Tancredo slamming Democrat John Hickenlooper for increasing fees and taxes as Denver mayor. Tancredo said the key to getting a state out of a recession is cutting taxes and not raising fees, and positioned Hickenlooper as an anti-business candidate who would do the opposite of what is needed if elected governor.

Hickenlooper, however, pointed out the ways he “cut red tape” for the business community while mayor. Hickenlooper reduced the time it takes to get a building permit by about 30 percent and said as mayor he “increased fees very modestly.” Additionally, Denver voters approved the measures in 2004 and 2006 that raised taxes by about $290 million by a wide margin. Hickenlooper pointed to his experience opening the Wynkoop Brewing Company, which revitalized lower downtown, as proof that he knows how to help the business community. He said raising taxes is off the table during a recession. “We’ve got to define Colorado as a pro-business [See GOVERNOR CANDIDATES, page 23]

Local candidates debate issues For the first time this campaign season, candidates for the county’s three elections faced off against one another. Candidates for county commissioner, sheriff and county surveyor all took questions from moderators and audience members last night for about an hour and a half in the Eagle County Commissioners chambers. The questions from both groups mostly focused on budgetary issues, though they touched on many others. Commissioners When asked to outline their reasons for running for office, incumbent Democrat Sara Fisher and her Republican challenger, Claudia Alexander, echoed statements they have made throughout the campaign season. A veteran of county politics, Fisher said she was the ideal candidate to guide Eagle County through a troubled economy. Alexander called for new leadership on the commission, and said she would cut from a system that she sees as bloated and overreaching. The two candidates took opposing stances on nearly every issue. Asked about the Stratton Flats development, Fisher said the investment in what was intended to be deed-restricted housing was made before the economic crash, and that some factors had changed since then, namely that the original developer had gone bankrupt. Despite a number of hurdles, Fisher expressed optimism for the project’s future.

“We will se Stratton Flats turn around and be a nice community,� she said. Alexander used the project as an example of overreach by the county government, and said that under Fisher’s term as county commissioner the Housing Department expanded to take on more products than it should, taking money from the hands of Eagle County taxpayers. “The rubber stamp keeps going, and as it keeps going, your obligations as a taxpayer keeps growing,� she said. Asked if they would cut from the coming budget, both said that they would have to. While Fisher touted county policies that set aside funds in anticipation for a drop in property tax revenues, Alexander said she would focus on cutting “touchy feely programs,� from the county budget. Sheriff Sheriff Joe Hoy and his unaffiliated challenger, James Van Beek, were not spared questions about budget concerns either. Asked where they would cut next year to best preserve services, Hoy said he has already cut about 20 percent of his budget by having staff and outside experts go through his budget to identify programs that could be removed without a substantial community. He could not say for sure whether he would ask his command staff to take a pay cut, but said it was among many options on the table. Van Beek emphasized that he would inherit a budget and a staff

established by Hoy if he is elected. “I end up with whatever package he leaves me,� he said. Van Beek did not give any examples of specific programs to cut, but did express his intention to thin out administrative staff within the department. Asked about their stances on medical marijuana, Van Beek defended the state’s right to choose their policy on the substance, and said he would enforce those laws that were established for him. Hoy said he had serious concerns about medical marijuana, and that abuse of the system set a bad example for local children. County surveyors Dan Corcoran and his challenger, Ted Archibeque, were not asked as many questions as the other four people at the table, but were given a chance to explain their stances on the position as a whole. Corcoran, who has held the position for the last eight years, said that his experience should serve for itself, and that the way the county surveyor position has been structured has saved taxpayers thousands. Archibeque contested Corcoran’s claims that stripping the surveyor of responsibility has saved taxpayers money, and called for the position to be used to the extent outline by state statute. He also criticized Corcoran for failing to consolidate county records online, a task Corcoran said he has not been provided the funds to perform. —By Matt Minich

Christel House golf tourney benefits Roundup River Ranch The Christie Lodge in Avon and Grand Lodge on Peak 7 in Breckenridge cohosted the Christel House Open Charity Golf Tournament on June 7, 2010 at the Gypsum Creek Golf Club. Now in its eighth year, the global tournament took place on the same day at 18 sites in six countries. Proceeds of the Colorado tournament site were shared between Christel House International and the local charity, Roundup River Ranch. The Tournament raised more than $23,000.00 through the generous support of premium level sponsorships from Grand Lodge on Peak 7, Mountain Pride Cleaning & Restoration, and Aspen National Collections. Many teams enjoyed a great day of golfing, food, fun, and outstanding silent auctions deals from many local businesses. Yesterday, Lisa Siegert-Free, general manager of the Christie Lodge, presented Ruth B. Johnson, chief executive officer of Roundup River Ranch, their portion of the event proceeds. Roundup River Ranch received over $7000 from the tournament; the amount received is nearly enough to send three children to camp next summer. Roundup Ranch

Since then, Christel House has expanded its programs, schools, and locations to serve more than 3,000 students, their families and communities, and employ more than 250 dedicated professionals who help the children optimize their potential and achieve productive, self-sufficient lives.

GOP fights back for Buck Questions motivations behind story of alleged rape victim By Matt Minich Mountaineer Staff Writer Supporters of Republican U.S. Senate candidate Ken Buck are attempting to turn the tables on a recent controversy surrounding the Weld County district attorney’s decision not to prosecute an alleged rape of a college student in 2005. Conservatives said yesterday that liberal groups are attempting to “exploit� a 26-year-old woman who was allegedly raped five years ago while attending the University of Northern Colorado. Buck supporters called the attack against Buck by ProgressNow Colorado a low point in the election cycle. “The Democrats’ desperate and deceitful attacks against Ken Buck won’t distract voters from appointed Sen. Michael Bennet’s abysmal economic record in Washington, including his votes for the failed stimulus debacle, ObamaCare, and the reckless spending policies that have driven our nation’s debt to more than $13.6 trillion,� said Amber Marchand, spokeswoman for the National Republican Senatorial Committee. The then-21-year-old unnamed

University of Northern Colorado student from Colorado Springs reported to authorities in 2005 that a former lover had raped her at her apartment after she invited him over. The woman has said that when she invited the man over, she had said “no� to sex. She acknowledged, however, to authorities that she had been drinking when the suspect came over, according to reports at the time. The Colorado Independent — which broke the story — spoke with the accuser. But the woman has declined to speak with most reporters because she says she is unhappy with the way the media handled reporting the case in 2005. ProgressNow last week leaked a tape of a conversation between Buck and the woman, in which Buck explained that he did not feel he could prosecute the case because it had too many holes. Of greatest concern to Buck was that he said the woman described her relationship with the suspect as being a romantic, intimate one. Buck said it would be difficult to convince a jury that the incident was one of date rape. Buck has remained relatively quiet over the controversy, but he told

the Greeley Tribune this week that he had four chief deputies in his office review the case. Buck’s subordinates agreed that the case was not prosecutable. Buck also had the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office review the case because he felt Boulder County had more experience with sex assault cases. The Boulder DA’s office also agreed that the case was not prosecutable, according to comments Buck made to the Tribune. Kjersten Forseth, executive director of ProgressNow Colorado, told the Denver Daily News yesterday that she has spoken with the accuser in the 2005 case, adding that the woman wanted to bring the story to light because she feels it demonstrates a lack of respect by Buck for women. Forseth also points to Buck’s comment to the woman that, “A jury could very well conclude that this is a case of buyer’s remorse.� “She wants this out there, and she is a proud survivor and believes her story needs to be heard,� said Forseth. “I don’t believe anybody should squelch her opportunity to at least have her story heard by Coloradans.�

Students at St. Clare of Assissi learn about image and empowerment at a retreat yesterday. The Edwards school hosted the ENDOW retreat for 7th and 8th grade girls, who learned about life’s “no-so-little� lessons and “girl-time reflection,� among other valuable insights. ENDOW is an acronym for Educating on the Nature and Dignity of Women. The retreat, called “Girl Genius,� focused on girls finding their dignity and redefining their image in society. Girls need to hear that they don’t have to be 6 feet tall and skinny as a rail around, explained Brigid Sweeney, the manager of the Archdiocese of Denver youth development program, who was in town helping with the event. “They’re aching to hear this, but no one tells them that,� said Sweeney.

Kloser secures spot on Freestyle team No big surprise for 2010 FIS Rookie of the Year

Consignment Furniture... Redefined

New Furniture Daily!

970-949-0989 222 Chapel Place Avon, CO 81620

Vail Valley native and International Ski Federation (FIS) Rookie of the Year Heidi Kloser is among the 28 athletes named to the U.S. Freestyle Ski Team roster for 2011, the team announced yesterday. She joins Olympic medalists Olympic medalists Hannah Kearney, Bryon Wilson and Jeret “Speedy” Peterson, who will headline the 2011 U.S. Freestyle Ski Team. The Team announced its 2011 roster at Deer Valley with an autograph signing for local clubs and families at the 2011 Freestyle World Championships venue.

 Athletes used the event as an opportunity to showcase their new 2011 Under Armour uniforms to both media and fans gathered for the announcement celebration. The athletes will be wearing the Under Armour uniforms when the World Cup season begins in December. 

 “Our Team is smaller this year than it has been in the past, but the athletes named to the Team are all training well and ready to compete at a podium level,” said Freestyle Program Director Todd Schirman. “We have returning veterans that can really contribute to the progression of our sport and Team, as well as some young up and comers that can push the veterans.”

 Aerials and Moguls looking ahead to World Champs at Deer Valley
 The U.S. Freestyle Aerials Ski Team named 10 athletes who will be sporting Under Armour Team jackets for the 2010-11 season. Pe-

terson, who won silver at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, will be joined by 2009 World Champion Ryan St. Onge along with fellow Olympians Matt DePeters and Scotty Bahrke, as well as Dylan Ferguson, who was named to the 2010 Olympic Team before bowing out due to appendicitis. Veteran and Olympian Emily Cook is KLOSER one of three women named to the Team including fellow Olympians Lacy Schnoor and 2010 World Cup Rookie of the Year Caldwell.

 “This is my 13th straight year being named to the U.S. Ski Team and even though that is a long time, it’s just an honor and pleasure,” said St. Onge. “The whole program is excited and energized to really go out there and get better at aerials.”

 The U.S. Freestyle Moguls Ski Team named 18 athletes to the Team, with gold and bronze leading the way to the 2011 World Championships at Deer Valley. Olympic gold medalist and 2005 World Champion Kearney and Olympic bronze medalist Wilson head into the season, officially beginning Dec. 11 with the World Cup opener in Ruka, Finland.

 Complementing Kearney and Wilson on the roster are Olympians and 2009 World Champion Patrick Deneen, 2005 World Champion Nate Roberts and Heather McPhie, who nailed her first World Cup win last year at Deer Valley, as well as Kloser.

 “We’ve got a really strong team,

a young team but a really talented team and I’m glad to be a part of it,” said. Wilson, who started off the 2010 season with two World Cup podiums before taking the bronze medal in Vancouver and was in attendance for the announcement. Among the 28 named athletes to the 2011 U.S. Freestyle Ski Team 10 are student-athletes hitting the books at Westminster College in the off season, including Wilson, St. Onge, Ferguson, McPhie and Schnoor, as well as David DiGravio, Jimmy and Joe Discoe, Landon Gardner and Sho Kashima. The Freestyle World Championships kick off Feb. 2 with the men’s and women’s moguls competition at Deer Valley and end on Feb. 5 with men’s and women’s dual moguls at Deer Valley and the ski halfpipe, which will be held just down the street at Park City Mountain Resort.

 The Championships, last held in Inawashiro, Japan in 2009 were a success for the U.S. Deneen and St. Onge are heading into the Feb. 2 and 4 Deer Valley events on home snow as reigning World Champions, while Kearney looks to best her third place finish in dual moguls on Feb. 5.

 “It’s an incredible thing to be a part of and I’m very excited about this upcoming year, especially considering that World Championships are here at Deer Valley, one of my favorite venues ever,” said St. Onge, defending World Champion. “It’s the best venue we come to, so it’s going to be great and exciting. I’m just going to try and work as hard as I can and see how it works out.”

 The event will replace the World Cup at Deer Valley, which draws a huge nighttime crowd under the lights. The press conference an[See KLOSER, page 26]

Colo. prosecutors weigh charges in hockey fights Coaches, players fined, suspended for fights during an exhibition game Prosecutors are weighing whether to pursue criminal charges after a series of fights during a minor league hockey game that left one player with a broken jaw and nose. Coaches and players from the Colorado Eagles and the Odessa Jackalopes have been fined and suspended for the fights during an exhibition game Saturday in Loveland. Jackalopes player Dave Van Drunen broke his jaw and nose and had to spend the night in the hospital, The Coloradoan in Fort Collins reported. Investigators presented their case to prosecutors Wednesday but prosecutors requested more information. A spokeswoman for the Larimer County district attorney’s office said no decision was expected Thursday. The Central Hockey League announced on its website Thursday that Eagles forward Brad MacMillan was suspended 22 games for attempting to injure a player. Eagles defenseman George Bradley

was suspended five games for his actions during an altercation and fined an undisclosed amount of money for the same infraction, according to the league. Colorado defenseman Mario Joly was suspended four games for leaving the bench. “We are very disappointed with the actions that took place on Saturday night in Colorado,” said Duane Lewis, the league commissioner. The league said the Colorado Eagles organization was fined an undisclosed amount for the multiple altercations. Greg Pankewicz, acting coach for the game, was suspended three games, to be served during the Eagles’ three regular season visits to Odessa, Texas. The league fined the Jackalopes organization an undisclosed amount for failing to complete the game and for public comments and incidents during the game. Odessa coach Paul Gillis was suspended the first three games of the regular season.

A Mexican television reporter who was hooted at by some of the New York Jets and said she felt uncomfortable in their locker room is returning to work next week and plans to conduct her interviews anywhere but there. Ines Sainz of TV Azteca said she suggested to the NFL that she talk to players on the field or on the sideline. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going into the locker rooms anymore,â&#x20AC;? she said Thursday at a news conference near Universal Studios. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a good place right now for me. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be in there.â&#x20AC;? Sainz said she is scheduled to do interviews with the Pittsburgh Steelers next week, followed by visits to the Jets and New England Patriots. Sainz said she took a break because of the fallout from her experience in the Jets locker room.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I need to wait one month to work again because I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be the focus,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not looking for that kind of publicity. It affects my career and development in the States.â&#x20AC;? Sainz released a letter she wrote to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell dated Oct. 13 thanking him for his prompt response to the Jetsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; behavior. League spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed Goodell received it. Last month, Sainz said she was uncomfortable in the Jetsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; locker room, where a few players made catcalls as she waited with two male co-workers to interview quarterback Mark Sanchez, who is of Mexican descent. An assistant coach also seemed to deliberately throw footballs to players near where Sainz was standing on the sideline during practice. Sainz was wearing tight jeans and

a form-fitting white blouse, which triggered public criticism. On Thursday, she wore a black-whiteand-lime green sequined mini skirt and white blouse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like to look good, but that in no way makes me any less dedicated to the sports journalism world,â&#x20AC;? she wrote to Goodell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud of being a woman and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not shy about hiding it. However, this in no way makes me any less of a professional.â&#x20AC;? The NFL responded to the incident with the Jets by developing a workplace conduct program, underwritten by Jets owner Woody Johnson, to educate the players and staffs of all 32 teams. Sainz said she was taken aback by the public reaction to her locker room experience.

WADA rejects Contadorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meat excuse The WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) dismissed three-time Tour de France champion Alberto Contadorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excuse Thursday that the reason his urine test came back positive was the result of a contaminated piece of meat. Contador claims the presence of clenbuterol in his system was due to contaminated meat containing minute traces of the substance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been raised before, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been heard in a couple of cases and rejected,â&#x20AC;? WADA director general David Howman said in a report by Yahoo sports. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not unusual. The issue is, can you prove it? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty hard thing to prove that is where the banned substance comes from.â&#x20AC;? WADA is monitoring the Contador case and said it was prepared to step in if a hearing cannot be arranged

in a timely manner. Yahooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report pointed out that when a hearing is set, Contador may have to defend himself concerning reports that plastic residues were found in his blood along with the steroid, of course suggesting cyclingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current top dog might have also undergone transfusions. Olivier Rabin, WADAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s science director, said while there are tests capable of detecting plastic residues in blood they have yet to develop a stand-alone test for plasticizers that can link them directly to doping. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are residues. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sure about this at that level, that is a scientific fact,â&#x20AC;? explained Rabin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How you connect that to doping is the question. Today, we cannot make a 100 per cent connection between high plastic residues to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You are doped.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153; The Spanish cyclist was provisionally suspended by the International Cycling Union after testing positive for very small concentration of a banned anabolic agent during this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tour de France.

Lawless wants lawlessness for transgendered golfers Lana Lawless, a former police officer who underwent a sex change operation five years ago, is challenging the LPGAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ban on transgender players. She filed a federal lawsuit late Tuesday in San Francisco federal court claiming the LPGAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;female at birthâ&#x20AC;? requirement for competitors violates a California civil rights law. Lawless is seeking to prevent the LPGA from holding tournaments in the state until the organization changes its policy to admit transgender players. She is also seeking unspecified damages.

Lawless, 57, also sued three LPGA sponsors and the Long Drivers of America, which holds the annual womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long-drive golf championship. Lawless won the event in 2008 with a 254-yard drive but was barred from competing this year after organizers adopted the LPGAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gender rules. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am, in all respects, legally, and physically female,â&#x20AC;? Lawless said in a statement Wednesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The state of California recognizes me as such and the LPGA should not be permitted to come into California and blatantly violate my rights. I just

want to have the same opportunity to play professional golf as any other woman.â&#x20AC;? LPGA spokesman David Higdon declined to comment because the organization hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen the lawsuit. A spokesman for the Long Drivers of America also declined to comment. Lawless said the LPGA is one of the few athletic organizations to bar transgender competitors. She noted that the International Olympic Committee has allowed transgender athletes since 2004 as long as the competitor underwent surgery and at least two years of hormonereplacement therapy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could participate in female wrestling in international Olympic events,â&#x20AC;? said Lawless.

where. Since late summer, when Chairman Ben Bernanke first hinted that the Fed was ready to act, anticipation of the move has rippled across the economy: Stock prices have surged. So have oil prices. Commodities like gold, silver and corn have risen. Treasury yields have slid. Mortgage rates have sunk, too, along with yields on money markets and CD accounts. The steep decline has even raised worries of a global currency war in which nations would compete to keep their currencies from rising in value as the dollar sags. Yesterday, the dollar fell to a 15-yearlow against the yen in Tokyo, after flirting with a post-World War II bottom.

Google 3Q profit up 32 percent; online ads strong

Google Inc.’s third-quarter earnings demonstrated that the Internet search leader is capable of surpassing investors’ short-term expectations while still investing heavily in long-range projects. Google reported a 32 percent jump in net income yesterday and provided the most persuasive evidence yet that its past investments are paying off, helping it diversify away from search advertising. Wall Street was encouraged, and sent Google’s shares soaring 9 percent to $590.01 in extended trading after the release of results. Text links placed above or alongside search results are still Google’s main source of revenue, but the company has laid out billions to beef up its ability to sell image-based “display” ads, ads inside Web videos and on mobile phones. The company paid $3.2 billion for DoubleClick, a display ad network, and $681 million for mobile-ad firm AdMob. Executives indicated yesterday that display advertising accounted for nearly 10 percent of ad revenue in the quarter, and mobile advertising was almost 4 percent.

FDA admits mistake in approving knee device

Almost two years ago, the Food and Drug Administration ignored the advice of its scientists and approved a knee implant after being lobbied by members of

Wild Star

Congress. Yesterday, the agency issued an unprecedented “mea culpa,” saying the device should not have been approved. The agency said it is taking steps to revoke approval of the Menaflex implant, made by ReGen Biologics. The announcement comes a year after the agency first acknowledged that its decision to approve the device was influenced by outside pressure, including lobbying by four lawmakers from the company’s home state of New Jersey. The 2008 decision to approve the implant was made despite protests by FDA scientists that Menaflex - which reinforces damaged knee tissue - provides little, if any, benefit to patients. Obama-appointed FDA officials vowed to revisit the Bush-era decision last fall after congressional investigators accused the agency of being too cozy with the companies it regulates. Since the device’s approval, the top two device regulators who oversaw Menaflex’s review have left the agency.

CVS fined for sale of meth ingredient

CVS Pharmacy Inc. has agreed to pay $75 million in fines for allowing repeated purchases of a key ingredient in the making of methamphetamine in at least five states that also led to a spike in Southern California drug trafficking, authorities said yesterday. The nation’s largest operator of retail pharmacies will pay what federal prosecutors said was the largest civil penalty ever assessed under the Controlled Substances Act. The company also will forfeit about $2.6 million in profits earned from the sales of pseudoephedrine, which can often be found in cold medicine and is used to make meth. Authorities said CVS didn’t provide enough safeguards to monitor how much pseudoephedrine someone was buying, and the company violated federal drug regulations in Arizona, Georgia, California, Nevada, South Carolina and possibly 20 other states.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------its sales of locally sourced produce in the U.S. by the end of 2015. The move by the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest retailer is part of a new sustainable agriculture strategy that looks to steer more business to small and medium-sized farmers globally while also reducing farmingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environmental impact. If Wal-Mart meets its goals in the U.S., local produce will still make up only 9 percent of the produce it sells. But because of the the retailerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sheer scale, it has the potential for a sizable impact. More than half of Wal-Martâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $405 billion is annual revenue is from food. In other countries the goals are bolder. Wal-Mart said it would source 30 percent of its produce in Canadian stores locally by the end of 2013, and set a goal of 100 percent when local sources are available. Wal-Mart plans to buy more of select U.S. crops. It also plans to train 1 million farmers and farm workers in emerging markets in crop selection, sustainable farming practices and other subjects and selling $1 billion in food sourced from 1 million small and medium-sized farmers. Wal-Mart said yesterday that it will start asking suppliers about water, energy, fertilizer and pesticide used per unit of food produced. The retailer also wants to lower food waste at its stores, with plans for a 15 percent reduction at emergingmarket stores and clubs and a 10 percent reduction at stores and clubs in other markets by 2015â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end.

Dead animals are Exhibit A in Gulf investigation

Dead birds are wrapped in foil or paper, then sealed in plastic bags to avoid cross contamination. Dolphin tissue samples and dead sea turtles are kept in locked freezers. Field notebooks are collected and secured. Scientists examining dead animals that were discovered along the Gulf Coast in the wake of the BP oil spill are observing strict laboratory protocols, knowing everything they touch could become evidence in what may prove to be the biggest environmental case in U.S. history. Like detectives on a murder case, government scientists - and outside experts under contract to the government - are using CSI-style techniques to determine whether the oil

is to blame for the wildlife deaths. The U.S. Justice Department is investigating whether those responsible for the spill violated environmental laws that carry civil and sometimes criminal penalties, and the scientists are taking extraordinary steps to make sure their findings hold up in court.

Mortgage rates hit new low of 4.19 percent

Rates on 30-year mortgages fell this week to 4.19 percent, the lowest level in decades. They were pushed down by lower Treasury bond yields. Investors are buying up Treasury bonds in anticipation of a move by the Federal Reserve designed to lower mortgage rates and yields on corporate debt. As a result, the average rate for 30-year fixed loans dropped to the lowest level on records dating back to 1971, mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said yesterday. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s down from 4.27 percent the previous week. The last time rates were this low was in the early 1950s. The average rate on 15-year fixed loans fell to 3.62 percent, the lowest on records dating back to 1991, Freddie Mac said. Rates have fallen since spring as investors shifted money into the safety of Treasury bonds. That demand lowers their yields, which mortgage rates tend to track. The 30-year rate was 5.08 percent at the beginning of April. The 15-year rate was 4.39 percent. Low rates havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t helped the struggling housing market, which recorded its worst summer in more than a decade. But they have led to a surge in refinancing. And rates could fall even further in the coming week.

Trade deficit widens to $46.3 billion

The U.S. trade deficit widened sharply in August, reflecting a surge in imports of consumer products as businesses restocked their shelves in hopes of a pickup in consumer demand. The politically sensitive deficit with China climbed to an all-time high, a development that was certain to increase pressure on the Obama

administration to take a tougher line on trade issues including Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tightly controlled currency. The Commerce Department said yesterday the deficit in August increased 8.8 percent to $46.3 billion. Exports edged up a slight 0.2 percent but this increase was swamped by a 2.1 percent jump in imports. So far this year, the trade deficit is running at an annual rate of $502.5 billion, up 34 percent from the $374.9 billion deficit for all of 2009, which had been the smallest imbalance since 2003.

AOL may be mulling a bid for Yahoo

Yahoo Inc.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inability to snap out of a financial funk may be about to turn the embattled Internet company into a takeover target for the second time in less than three years. That possibility, floated in a story posted online late Wednesday by The Wall Street Journal, lifted Yahooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shares by nearly 13 percent in Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s after-hours trading. After snubbing a $47.5 billion buyout offer from the much larger Microsoft Corp. in 2008, Yahoo this time may find itself being courted by a smaller rival with its own problems, AOL Inc. If Yahoo gets another offer, it will likely be for considerably less than what the company could have gotten had it embraced Microsoft. Yahooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s market value now is less than $25 billion, even after factoring in the runup from the takeover speculation. Still, it appears AOL realizes it would need to bring in more financial muscle to get a deal done. The company, based in New York, is discussing the possible Yahoo offer with several firms that specialize in buying companies whose stocks have fallen out of favor, according to the Journal. The story identified Silver Lake Partners and Blackstone Group LP as two of the firms huddling with AOL.

Gulf of Mexico, but BP remains unusually vulnerable to the prospect of U.S. gas stations defecting to other brands. In interviews with The Associated Press, station owners from Wisconsin to Virginia say BP dealers are being courted by other brands or are approaching them on their own. While the practice is common in such a competitive business, it has become more frequent since the April 20 offshore rig explosion and spill that tarnished BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s image and led some customers to go elsewhere for gas, the owners say.

Barbara Walters to interview Oprah Winfrey

Barbara Walters will sit down for a prime-time interview with Oprah Winfrey about the end of the daytime talk starâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show. The hourlong interview will air Dec. 9 on ABC. Walters will follow Winfrey that night with another hour about the most fascinating people of 2010. The Winfrey special will include the star talking about memorable moments in her 25-year-old show. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s giving it up at the end of this season and concentrating on her own cable network. ABC said yesterday that Walters will do the interview in Chicago at Winfreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home and Harpo Studios.

NY mosque argument on â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Viewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; leads to walk-off

Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg walked off the stage of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Viewâ&#x20AC;? yesterday during an argument with Bill Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Reilly over the proposed Islamic center near the site of the Sept. 11 attacks. The women objected to the Fox News Channel host saying that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Muslims killed us on 9/11.â&#x20AC;? They returned after an Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Reilly apology. The fireworks came amid a heated argument on the issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Listen to me,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Reilly said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll learn something.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pinhead!â&#x20AC;? retorted Behar, who also hosts a primetime show on HLN. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Reilly, who was on the popular daytime talk show to promote his book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pinheads and Patriots: Where You Stand in the Age of Obama,â&#x20AC;? said locating the Islamic Center near ground zero is inappropriate â&#x20AC;&#x153;because Muslims killed us on 9/11.â&#x20AC;?Goldberg responded with an expletive and Behar rose from her seat.

US urges delay in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ruling

After two days of silence, the Obama administration urged a federal judge yesterday to let the military press on with its â&#x20AC;&#x153;donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tellâ&#x20AC;? ban on gays serving openly in the military. Still, President Barack Obama insisted the policy that has divided the nation for two decades â&#x20AC;&#x153;will end on my watch.â&#x20AC;? The Pentagon said the military â&#x20AC;&#x153;will of course obey the lawâ&#x20AC;? and halt enforcement while the case is still in question. But gay rights advocates cautioned gay service members to avoid revealing their sexuality in the meantime. A federal judge abruptly threw out the Clinton-era ban on Tuesday, setting in motion a legal, political and human-rights back-and-forth that put the administration on the spot just two weeks before crucial midterm elections. Obama has consistently argued against the ban, approved by Congress in 1993. But he says it is up to Congress to repeal it. The policy, summed up as â&#x20AC;&#x153;donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell,â&#x20AC;? refers to guidance that gay or lesbian Americans can serve in the military but not openly. Their superiors are forbidden to ask about sexual orientation, but service members can be thrown out or denied enlistment if they talk about being gay or let it be known that they engage in homosexual acts. Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Justice Department asked U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips to stay her ruling that overturned the ban while the government prepares a formal appeal.

Reid, Angle to meet in only debate of Nev. race

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Republican rival Sharron Angle share a local stage and a national spotlight yesterday in the only debate of a caustic campaign that pits the embodiment of the Democratic establishment against a tea party-backed challenger. For Angle, a 61-year-old former state lawmaker, the encounter is a chance to counter Reidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s months-long attack on her as an extremist who is bent on destroying Social Security and other government programs. For Reid, 70 and seeking a fifth Senate term, it marks an opportunity to persuade skeptical constituents that he deserves re-election at a time when unemployment in Nevada, 14.4 percent, is the highest in the country. The debate is taking place at a particularly critical moment in their race, with early voting set to begin over the weekend and polls showing an extremely tight contest. Both candidates unveiled new television attack ads in the hours before the debate was scheduled to begin.

Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell dodges evangelical issues in Senate race

Suddenly, Christine Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to talk about values and religion. The Republican Senate nominee from Delaware, who said four years ago that she heard the â&#x20AC;&#x153;audible voice of Godâ&#x20AC;? encouraging her to run for office, is shying away from publicly stating the evangelical views that built her career as a television pundit and conservative activist. Trailing badly in the polls, Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell has bobbed and weaved recently on previously bold and provocative positions that risk alienating the all-important centrist voting bloc in politically moderate Delaware. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I believe is irrelevant,â&#x20AC;? she said under the bright lights of a nationally televised debate Wednesday when asked if she still believes evolution is a myth and schools should be teaching creationism as science. The tea party favorite is walking a delicate line, trying to avoid a third straight losing Senate campaign by maintaining the enthusiasm of her evangelical base while not scaring off the centrists who could see such views as extreme.

WHO: 1 billion suffer from hidden tropical disease

Congolese government troops are raping, killing and looting civilians in the same area of eastern Congo where militias carried out mass rapes just weeks ago, a top U.N. envoy said yesterday. Margot Wallstrom, who is responsible for U.N. efforts to combat sexual violence in conflict, told the Security Council U.N. peacekeepers have received reports of rapes, killings and looting by government soldiers. “The possibility that the same communities who were brutalized in July and August by FDLR and Mai Mai elements are now also suffering” at the hands of the army “is unimaginable and unacceptable,” she said, referring to the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Rwanda by its French initials.

School cafeterias to try psychology in lunch line

Hide the chocolate milk behind the plain milk. Get those apples and oranges out of stainless steel bins and into pretty baskets. Cash only for desserts. These subtle moves can entice kids to make healthier choices in school lunch lines, studies show. Food and restaurant marketers have long used similar tricks. Now the government wants in on the act. The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced what it called a major new initiative Tuesday, giving $2 million to food behavior scientists to find ways to use psychology to improve kids’ use of the federal school lunch program and fight childhood obesity. A fresh approach is clearly needed, those behind the effort say.

Court won’t stop hormone replacement lawsuits

The Supreme Court won’t reconsider a decision to reinstate more than 100 lawsuits filed by women who claimed that hormone replacement therapy caused breast cancer.

The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a federal judge’s decision to throw out many of the lawsuits. The drug companies wanted the case in federal court, and said plaintiffs added unrelated local defendants to ensure it would stay in state court. A federal

lifetime risk is 1 in 52 for Hispanics, and 1 in 170 for whites. Asian-Americans had the lowest lifetime risk, at about 1 in 222. The data is not considered surprising. Earlier research has shown blacks, especially, have a high risk of HIV infection. The estimates are based on 2007 death certificates, population figures and HIV surveillance data from 37 states and Puerto Rico. They update similar calculations reported two years ago.

The World Health Organization estimated yesterday that 1 billion of the world’s poorest people suffer from neglected tropical diseases such as dengue, rabies and leprosy that remain concentrated in remote rural areas and urban slums despite being mostly eradicated from large areas of the world. WHO said it can substantially reduce those numbers with the help of drug donations from the pharmeceutical industry, which announced fresh pledges. WHO identified 17 diseases and disease groups present in 149 countries one-third of the 2.7 billion people living on less than $2 a day. Thirty countries have six or more of the diseases. In all, more than one-third of the 2.7 billion people living on less than $2 a day are affected.

UN envoy says gov’t troops continue Congo rapes

British Anti-Islam group seeks US Tea Party ties

Tentative links are developing between supporters of the Tea Party movement in the United States and rightwing fringe groups in Britain that are opposed to what they call the “Islamification” of Europe. The movements are not formally aligned, but the relatively new English Defense League - which warns that Islamic fundamentalism will soon engulf Britain - is seeking guidance and inspiration from some U.S. figures taking a similar stance. The British activists are less drawn to the anti-tax, anti-big-government Tea Party message and more attracted to elements taking an active stance against the spread of Islam, like Rabbi Nachum Shifren, a longshot Republican candidate for the California state legislature who plans to visit England next week in a trip sponsored in part by the English Defense League. The trip was organized by Roberta Moore, an English Defense League activist who has formed a “Jewish division” of the group. She said the rabbi will speak at an Oct. 24 rally in London.

US military says 77,000 Iraqis killed over 5 years

A new U.S. military tally puts the death toll of Iraqi civilians and security forces in the bloodiest years of the war thousands below Iraqi government figures. The little-noticed body count is the most extensive data on Iraqi war casualties ever released by the American military. It tallied deaths of almost 77,000 Iraqis between January 2004 and August 2008 - the darkest chapter of Iraq’s sectarian warfare and the U.S. troop [See THE UPDATE, page 22]

surge to quell it. But the tally falls short of the estimated 85,694 deaths of civilians and security officials between January 2004 to Oct. 31, 2008, as counted last year by the Iraqi Human Rights Ministry. Casualty figures in the U.S.-led war in Iraq have been hotly disputed because of the high political stakes in a conflict opposed by many countries and a large portion of the American public.

lies to modernize the alliance for the 21st century,” Fogh Rasmussen told journalists. “We are oriented towards a consensus at the summit in Lisbon that NATO should protect the populations against a missile attack.” Fogh Rasmussen is proposing to expand an existing system of tactical battlefield missile defense to cover the territory and populations of all alliance members against attack from nations such as Iran and North Korea. He has also called on Russia to join the project.

US counterterror official: Euro plot still active

Senate GOP shifts ad money out of Florida

A European terrorist plot is still enough of a threat for the United States to keep its current travel advisory, the U.S. State Department’s counterterrorism coordinator said yesterday. The State Department advised American citizens living or traveling in Europe earlier this month to take more precautions following reports that terrorists may be plotting attacks on a European city, possibly a shooting spree or other type of attack similar to the deadly 2008 Mumbai attacks in India. The U.S. travel advisory is one step below a formal travel warning advising Americans not to visit Europe. It drew some skepticism among U.S. allies, most notably Germany, who questioned whether the United States was overreacting.

Turks accuse Israel of war crimes at int’l court

Turkish lawyers representing pro-Palestinian activists filed a complaint yesterday with the International Criminal Court accusing Israel of committing war crimes in May when its troops raided a boat trying to break Israel’s blockade of Gaza. It was unclear whether the prosecutor would agree to pursue the case or whether the court has jurisdiction. But the filing reignited an issue that has severely strained Israel’s relations with Turkey, previously its strongest ally in the Muslim world, and keeps Israel on the defensive over its much-criticized Gaza blockade. A delegation representing some 300 activists and a Turkish nongovernment organization submitted the complaint to the prosecutor’s office in The Hague seeking an investigation into the May 31 raid. Nine Turkish citizens, including 19-year-old Furkan Dogan who had dual U.S.-Turkish nationality, were killed during the melee after Israeli troops rappelled from helicopters onto the deck of the ship Mavi Marmara before dawn.

NATO chief calls for anti-missile system

NATO allies are moving toward approving an antimissile system that would protect Europe, the alliance’s secretary general said yesterday, adding that he hoped Russia would join in creating such a shield. Anders Fogh Rasmussen said that, based yesterday’s meeting of the foreign and defense ministers of NATO’s 28 members, he was “quite optimistic” the anti-missile shield would be formally adopted at the organization’s next summit in Portugal on Nov. 19-20. “I was very encouraged by the determination of the al-

Confident of keeping a seat, Senate Republicans are canceling $4 million in TV ads for Florida’s Marco Rubio to put more money toward winning a trio of Democratic-held seats - in California, Pennsylvania and Illinois - where polls show races tightening. The moves are just the latest in a constantly shifting battleground as Republicans seek to take advantage of a political tail wind by broadening their footprint. Democrats are narrowing their focus to places they must win to keep their Senate and House majorities. With little more than two weeks before Nov. 2, both sides are making decisions hourly about where to spend limited resources even as donations continue to pour in.

Michelle Obama tries to fire up downtrodden Democrats

First lady Michelle Obama is trying to fire up downtrodden Democrats fearing big midterm losses by trying to recapture their excitement from two years ago. In her second day of a midterm campaign swing, the first lady stopped in suburban Denver to stump for a Democratic Colorado senator facing a tough re-election fight. However, Obama spent most of her speech looking backward, reminding donors in the crowd about the excitement of 2008 and urging them to recapture the energy they felt then. “We are here to restore that promise,” Obama told about 300 Democratic donors. She urged Democrats not to give up despite polls indicating widespread Democratic defeats next month. Obama talked about party enthusiasm around the 2008 Democratic National convention in Denver, which continued through that election and to President Barack Obama’s nomination.

Black voters may sway 20 House races in Nov. vote

On the corner of Collington Road and Route 301, a bright blue poster screams the Democratic Party’s wishful thinking at passing cars: “We’ve got your back President Obama.” The poster, not quite big enough to qualify as a billboard, reflects an unspoken bargain between Obama and black voters: He asks, they deliver. Last week, Obama asked. Polls indicate many minority voters are discouraged and won’t turn out Nov. 2 as they did for Obama two years ago, yet a solid showing among blacks could still

swing several House, Senate and gubernatorial races, according to some analysts. Ruy Teixeira, a political demographer for the Center for American Progress, said certain parts of the Democratic base - particularly young voters and minorities - typically “tune in” just before an election, and Democrats could improve their chances if they galvanize those constituencies.

White House becomes ‘Pink House’ for a night

The White House became the “Pink House” last night for breast cancer awareness. President Barack Obama announced via Twitter earlier in the day that the building will be bathed in pink light yesterday, just for one night. Obama signed a proclamation at the beginning of the month designating October as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Last October, the Obamas hung a large pink ribbon on the Pennsylvania Avenue side of the White House. The American Cancer Society says there are roughly 40,000 breast cancer deaths each year in the U.S.

Chinese company to fix 300 homes ruined by drywall

A Chinese drywall manufacturer, along with suppliers, builders and insurers, agreed yesterday to repair up to 300 homes in four states and possibly thousands more damaged by corrosive drywall. In this pilot program, up to 300 homeowners in Florida, Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi whose homes had drywall manufactured by Knauf Plasterboard Tianjin Co. will get their homes fixed, lawyers said. Homeowners in Texas, North Carolina and Virginia could be added soon. Knauf and the other companies have agreed to replace drywall, wiring, fire and alarm systems, and fixtures in damaged homes. Many more of the 2,000 to 3,000 homes built with Knauf drywall might be fixed under similar terms if the pilot program is successful.

Private spaceship makes first solo glide flight

Virgin Galactic’s space tourism rocket SpaceShipTwo achieved its first solo glide flight Sunday, marking another step in the company’s eventual plans to fly paying passengers. SpaceShipTwo was carried aloft by its mothership to an altitude of 45,000 feet and released over the Mojave Desert. After the separation, SpaceShipTwo, manned by two pilots, flew freely for 11 minutes before landing at an airport runway followed by the mothership. The entire test flight lasted about 25 minutes. “It flew beautifully,” said Virgin Galactic chief executive George Whitesides. The six-passenger SpaceShipTwo is undergoing rigorous testing before it can carry tourists to space. In the latest test, SpaceShipTwo did not fire its rocket engine to climb to space.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Grandma’s ashes mistakenly sold at Fla. yard sale

Grandma Marge’s ashes weren’t for sale, but a bargain hunter in Florida walked away with them anyway. A touch of Grandma Marge was put in a potted violet, her favorite plant, after her death. The plant was accidentally sold at a weekend yard sale in the Panhandle town of Fort Walton Beach. Piper Gaffrey had stepped away from the yard sale when her husband sold the violet for an undisclosed amount, not realizing some of Marjorie Potts Gaffrey was in the soil. Piper Gaffrey scattered some of her 99-year-old grandmother in the violet when she died in February. When she discovered it had been sold, she pleaded on Facebook for the buyer to take care of it. Fortunately, the plant was bought by someone she knew. It was returned and is thriving in Gaffrey’s new home.

Nepal teen stands tall as world’s shortest man

A Nepalese fruit seller’s son with the body of a toddler turned 18 yesterday and was officially declared the

world’s shortest man by Guinness record officials. Khagendra Thapa Magar measured in at 26.4 inches (67 centimeters), displacing the former record holder, Edward Nino Hernandez of Colombia, who measures 27 inches (70 centimeters). Cheers went up when Magar was handed a world record certificate by Guinness official Marco Frigatti. The ceremony was held in a hotel in Pokhara, Magar’s hometown and a popular tourist destination west of Katmandu. “I can confirm that as of today Khagendra Thapa Magar is officially the shortest man in the world,” Frigatti announced as he handed over the certificate. Magar’s family has campaigned for years to get him the crown, but earlier requests to Guinness were rejected because of the possibility he might grow. “We had to wait till he was 18 and became an adult,” Frigatti said.

Verizon to join AT&T in selling Apple’s iPad

In a sign of warming relations between the two companies, Verizon Wireless is going to start selling Apple Inc.’s iPad at the end of this month, the companies said yesterday. The news follows published reports that Ve-

state,” said Hickenlooper. For his part, Republican candidate Dan Maes said the state must reduce government regulations and taxes to help the business community. ‘Dirty dozen’ The debate then turned to the so-called “dirty dozen,” a series of bills passed last legislative session that eliminated or suspended numerous tax credits and exemptions for the business community. Maes said if elected governor he would immediately repeal the bills, while Hickenlooper said he would repeal the measures as quickly as possible. Hickenlooper said the reality of the budget

rizon Wireless will start selling a version of the iPhone early next year. The companies have not confirmed the reports, and Verizon Wireless has downplayed the possibility of an iPhone for its current network. AT&T Inc. is Apple’s exclusive U.S. carrier for the iPhone. It’s also the only U.S. carrier that’s compatible with the “3G” version of the iPad, which allows for cellular data access. Verizon Wireless won’t sell the 3G version. Instead, it will sell the Wi-Fi version, with the option of bundling it with a “MiFi” gadget for about $130. MiFi, a Post-It-pad sized, battery-powered device, connects to Verizon’s 3G network and relays the data to the iPad via Wi-Fi.

would make it hard to repeal the exemptions within the first year, but promised if elected to work with the business community to see what to repeal first. Tancredo followed up by saying that he doubted Hickenlooper would look to repeal the “dirty dozen,” and said cutting taxes would be his first action if elected. Union issues Tancredo and Maes both came out strong against unionization in Colorado. Tancredo promised to confront the public employee and teacher unions “head on” because he believes they are hurting Colorado’s business community recover from the recession.

“Do you know of anyone who pays union dues so they can work more or get paid less?” said Tancredo. “Of course not, that’s now what a union is all about.” Hickenlooper said as mayor he resisted a push for an increase of unionization. But Hickenlooper added that it’s important to “try to get everybody working together” and that it’s important, for instance, to have “teachers at the table” in some way. Maes pointed to his campaign history as proof that he isn’t afraid to take on the big names, in this case unions, to get them to focus on what’s important. Throughout the debate Tancredo attacked Hickenlooper, Hickenlooper cited

his business background, and Maes positioned himself as the people’s choice. Tancredo started the debate on an awkward note with a joke that was greeted with noticeable shock and silence. After being introduced as “everyone’s favorite border patrol guard,” Tancredo quipped that he is usually introduced with the following line: “If your dinner arrives late or cold, you can blame the next person I’m bringing up here because when he walked into the room, we lost all the wait staff and all the kitchen help.” However, illegal immigration was not discussed at yesterday’s debate.

James Van Beek had the responsibility of supervising the field mentors and security teams that work in the field with the Afghanistan National Police command staff, for his region. He and his men were responsible for mentoring law enforcement best practices; personnel, finance, logistics, operations, and training/education along with reporting any human rights violation and misuse of international funds by the Afghan National Police. With his ability to speak multiple languages, James Van Beek was also assigned to a region where he utilized those skills to coordinate with the international community to accomplish the mentoring task he is assigned.

Afghanistan was the first time I had the opportunity to observe James Van Beek’s supervision style. He is the type of supervisor that properly prioritizes the task at hand, utilizes his personnel to the best of their ability (realizing that employees have strengths and weaknesses), and he is fair with his personnel when behavioral issues arise. Additionally he employs a coaching or mentoring attitude utilizing discipline as a last resort. James is calm under pressure.

nouncing the Team and the World Championship site was coupled with an autograph signing for local clubs and families.

 “The World Championships are a very important event, particularly after such a successful Olympic year,” said Schirman. “We are heading into this season with two reigning World Champions and three 2010 Olympic medalist. These Championships can set the tone for the next couple years leading into Sochi.”

 “When I first moved down to Utah, I joined the Wasatch Freestyle Program at Deer Valley,” said Wilson. “To have the World Championships here is pretty cool. It’s kind of a home mountain for me, I’m eager to go there and compete in World Championships.”

so that’d be cool to have a dancer as Governor,” he said.

“The powers that be would like to keep me silent,” he said.

A crowded stage Fiorino is running for the office for his second time as an unaffiliated candidate. In the 2006 election, he said he took less than one percent of the vote, but managed to finish ahead of the American Constitution Party candidate. With the American Constitution Party’s Tom Tancredo polling in the 30 percent range, that feat will be much harder to accomplish this year, but Fiorino said he has his eyes set on a goal of garnering 10 percent of the vote this year, which he says will help set him up to take the Governorship in the next election. “I’m in this race to win it, either this year or in 2014,” he said. This year, Fiorino will not only face off against major party candidates John Hickenlooper and Dan Maes, but will share the bottom of the ballot with Tom Tancredo, Libertarian candidate Jaimes Brown and fellow unaffiliated candidate Jason Clark. With a reported campaign fund of just $151, Fiorino said he hopes to set an example for future campaigns, which he said have become cluttered with special interests and irritating advertisements. Though he has attended many of the debates, Fiorino has not been allowed to participate in any of them, a frustration he shares with Clark and Brown.

Leaning left Asked who he would endorse other than himself for Governor, Fiorino said he had hopes to see John Hickenlooper win, if only so that he could make a run for Denver mayor. In the Senatorial race, he supports Michael Bennet, and took a liberal stance on many different issues affecting the state. He opposes all numbered items on this ballot, which include not only Amendments 60 and 61 and Proposition 101, but also Amendment 62, which would define a fetus as a person and Amendment 63, which would exempt Coloradans from an aspect of federal healthcare reform that requires all citizens to purchase health insurance. Fiorino supports medical marijuana, which he said could become a major industry in Colorado, and believes the state’s energy sector needs to “clean up,” before oil and natural gas companies are allowed to drill new wells. Because he sees tourism as one of the state’s most important assets, he said he wants to put a stronger focus on filling abandoned mines, protecting the state’s mountain region for energy development and finding a solution to the pine bark beetle infestation. “The tree situation here is out of hand,” he said.
