Slopestyle now part of FIS Snowboarding Championship event VSSA student, Olympian snowboarder Faye Gulini to look into new discipline By John LaConte Vail Mountaineer Editor What was decided at the last council held at the International Ski Federation (FIS) headquarters in Switzerland is now official, FIS announced yesterday on their World Cup Snowboarding website. Snowboard slope-

style has been formally added to the schedule for the 2011 FIS Snowboard World Championships in La Molina, Spain. The decision is a huge step in the process to make slopestyle a part of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. In order to be included in the Olympics, a sport should be


part of two World Championships overseen by an international body, in this case FIS. “Snowboard slopestyle is a great opportunity for both the large and many small areas around the world to activate around terrain parks which are prevalent, easy to develop and easily capable of hosting train-

ing and competition,” said U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association Vice President Luke Bodensteiner in a presentation to the FIS Congress earlier this year. The first ever WCS slopestyle competitions will take place on January 21st with qualifiers; finals will be held on Jan. 22.

lete Faye Gulini said now that slopestyle is an FIS-sanctioned sport, she was going to see what it takes to compete in the discipline at the highest level. “If I’m eligible, I’d love to compete,” said Gulini. “I haven’t looked into all the requirements yet but I plan to.” Gulini, 18, is an all around snowboarder, but has found most success in snowboardcross. She’s currently the secondranking U.S. snowboardcross racer on the World Cup circuit, and she finGULINI ished only seven spots behind American snowboardcross star Lindsey Jacobellis at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver at 12th.

Happy Thanksgiving Serving 11 a.m. - 10 p.m.

Fire crews contend with snow and wind as they attempt to extinguish a fire at the Whiskey Hill Condominiums in Eagle-Vail Sunday evening.

Structure fire guts homes in Eagle-Vail Eagle River Fire Protection District firefighters were summoned to 596 Eagle Road, Whiskey Hill Condominiums, Sunday evening at 10:20 p.m. for a report of a structure fire. Crews arrived and encountered snow and wind so fierce that they could not immediately see the smoke and flames coming from the roof. Firefighters found fire in the walls, ceilings and attic on several levels making it necessary to respond at a high level. Firefighters believe the fire originated in a chimney chase and spread

to the attic. A total of four units were damaged in the fire resulting from fire, smoke and suppression efforts. The occupants of the home were relocated by the Salvation Army. “It is very unfortunate that this fire occurred so close to the holidays,” said Charles Moore, Fire Chief for Eagle River Fire. “The four units were damaged extensively and cannot be occupied.” Another 6 units were not damaged by the fire. “Those families were able to return to their homes around 1 a.m.,”

said Moore. “It took firefighters approximately one hour to bring the fire under control, and another hour to completely extinguish the hot spots.” There were no injuries to civilians or firefighters. Road conditions were extremely icy, and the wind and driving snow made it initially difficult to set up fire trucks and deploy ladders. Eagle River Fire District was assisted by Vail, Eagle and Gypsum fire departments and the Eagle County Ambulance District and Eagle County Sheriff. A total of 30 firefighters responded to the call. A formal investigation into the cause of the fire began yesterday morning.

Eagle budget hearing tonight Vail's best NEWS

Tonight is the last chance for residents of the Town of Eagle to weigh in on their Board of Trustee’s 2011 budget. The board will read six ordinances at the 6 p.m. meeting, which together make up their plan to spend more than $11 million, almost $2 million more than last year. The town expects to see $24 million in revenues next year, about $1.25 million more than it did in 2010. The budget is available in its entirety on the town’s

website at

No meeting for Gypsum The town of Gypsum will not hold it’s regular meeting today. The meeting was canceled because some town staff members are out of town for Thanksgiving, said Town Clerk Danette Schlegel. The town council’s next meeting will be Tuesday, Dec. 14.


County removing hazard trees in Eagle Eagle County is removing hazard trees at its Eagle campus in a joint project with the town. Two local arborists were hired to inventory and evaluate all campus trees after significant damage was incurred during last winter’s storms. Dead cottonwoods were removed recently from the right-of-way on Capital Street, along with an elm located on Fifth Street. Core samples show substantial trunk rot in a large

blue spruce in the campus courtyard, which will also be removed. All of the trees scheduled for removal are at or near the end of their life cycles, are located in high traffic areas, and have a high risk of causing damage to people and property. The trees could not be saved by ties or other measures. Brush Creek Landscaping and A Cut Above Forestry assessed tree risk using defect and tree location information.


When it comes to your smile,

deserve the best!

The $4,000 cost to remove the trees is shared with the town of Eagle. Arborists recommend that landscape trees show a diversity of species and age classes. Replacement trees will consist of green ash and a variety of smaller ornamentals and will be planted next spring as soon as weather permits. Any questions or concerns regarding the tree removal may be directed to County Facilities Management at 328-8880.

Gore Range DUI Task Force on patrol starting tomorrow The Gore Range DUI Task Force (comprised of the Avon Police Department, Eagle County Sheriff’s Office, Eagle Police Department, and Vail Police Department) with grant support from the Colorado Department of Transportation will be actively involved in DUI saturation patrol over this Thanksgiving holiday. The task force takes a zero-toler-

ance approach to drug and alcohol impaired drivers for the ultimate goal of reducing alcohol and drug related crashes while at the same time improving traffic safety in our community. Each year in Colorado, more than 30,000 people are arrested for DUI and nearly 200 people are killed in alcohol-related traffic crashes – representing approximately 40 percent

of Colorado’s total motor vehicle fatalities. The Thanksgiving DUI Enforcement program will begin countywide tomorrow and run through Monday. The Gore Range DUI Task Force is asking that everyone traveling this holiday season to buckle-up, drive safe, and drive sober.

Annual Pedal Power Snowshoe Adventure series starts Dec. 4 By John O’Neill Mountaineer Contributing Writer Get out of the warm covers of your bed. Put on your long johns, thermal socks, hat and gloves. Tie your shoes, open the front door and step out into the cold. Too often, winter training is all about just getting out the door. November through March, running nearly comes to a halt with arctic weather conditions and nearly nowhere to run, but for athletes looking to open another door in their winter training, there is an alternative: snowshoe running. Not only does the activity offer a strenuous workout, but races are organized throughout the winter to put that fitness to the test. The Pedal Power Snowshoe Adventure series, which begins December 4, is one option where local athletes can battle it out for best snowshoer. The series is the oldest established competitive snowshoe series in the state of Colorado as well as the only completely non-profit event of its kind. This year the series consists of five events held around the region. The first, on December 1, will be held at Ski Cooper on Tennessee Pass and offer a five-mile run, with the second coming to Eagle-Vail on December 18 with both 5k and 10k events. Other race dates and locations are January 15 and 29 on Tennessee Pass, and February 19 in Leadville. The events range for everyone from high-caliber athletes who are looking to make the U.S. Snowshoe team – which they can do on January 15 at the Colorado State Championship held on Tennessee pass – to those looking for family fun. This year’s schedule includes the addition of a second Winter Triathlon, which includes snowshoeing, snow biking and skate skiing. This unique format, introduced just two

years ago, has already become one the series’ most popular events, and race organizer Bruce Kelly says multi discipline winter events have become increasingly popular in recent years. “Because of the unique nature of this competition, it has quickly become one of the ‘must-do’ events Snowshoers take off at the start of last among our competitors,” year’s Tennessee Pass Kick-off Classic Kelly said last year. “In 5-Miler snowshoe race near Camp Hale the earlier years, this se- last year, the first race of the annual Pedal ries included a duathlon, Power Snowshoe Adventure Series.

88-year-old jailed after nursing home shooting

An 86-year-old woman was found dead of a gunshot wound to the head in her bed at a Southern California nursing home Sunday, and her husband of nearly seven decades was found sitting next to her and arrested on suspicion of murder, police said. The couple’s daughter told the Los Angeles Times the shooting a month before their 70th anniversary was “a mercy killing” by a husband who had long fed and bathed his wife as she suffered from dementia and decline. Reports of gunshots at Country Villa Healthcare Center came at about noon, and within a few minutes officers arrived from the California Highway Patrol, Orange County Sheriff’s Department and three local police departments, Seal Beach police Sgt. Steve Bowles said. A tactical team surrounded the facility and soon entered. Inside they found Clara Laird dead of a single gunshot wound to the head, and found her husband Roy Charles Laird in a nearby chair, Bowles said. Officers recovered a .38 caliber revolver from Roy Laird.

Joint Chiefs chairman believes al-Qaida threats

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff says he believes Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula’s boast that it will try to carry out more cheap, small-scale attacks. Adm. Mike Mullen says the terrorist group in Yemen has grown and is dangerous, and that counterterrorism efforts should focus on its activities. In an online magazine, al-Qaida in the Arabian Pen-

insula boasts that it’s using cheap and easy methods to attack U.S. targets, pointing to a failed plot to bomb two U.S.-bound cargo planes. The group says it can “bring down America” with smaller attacks that play on what it calls the “security phobia that is sweeping America.” Mullen told ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday he considers the threat to be serious.

Feds investigating drinking glasses with lead

Federal regulators launched an investigation yesterday into lead levels in themed drinking glasses depicting comic book and movie characters, declaring them children’s products subject to stricter standards than those intended for adult collectors. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said it was collecting samples of all glasses cited in an ongoing Associated Press investigation into dangerous metals in children’s merchandise, generally those containing the more-dangerous toxin cadmium. The company that imported the Chinese-made glasses depicting the likes of Superman, Wonder Woman and characters from “The Wizard of Oz” such as Dorothy and the Tin Man announced it would voluntarily recall them, despite its insistence that they were marketed to adults. In all, about 160,000 glasses were recalled by two companies since the AP disclosed Sunday that laboratory tests it commissioned showed that colored designs in a range of glasses contain high levels of lead or were made in such a way that lead or cadmium could escape and contaminate the hands of someone handling them.

So you care about the environment, and you take a reusable shopping bag with you to the grocery store to avoid polluting the planet with countless plastic sacks. Now you find out your bag is made with potentially harmful lead. What’s an environmentalist to do? If you’re like Elnora Cooper, nothing. “I’m not eating the bag ... and I’m not going to get rid of it,” Cooper, 68, said with a chuckle after walking out of a Wegmans Food Markets store in Rochester this week with a reusable bag under her arm. The latest in a long line of ominous warnings about potentially dangerous products concerns synthetic but reusable bags that may contain traces of lead. The stir in supermarkets and Congress is less about whether the toxin might rub off on food and more about whether they could accumulate in landfills and create an environmental hazard. But since the whole point of the bags is that they’re to be kept, not tossed out, and because the concentration of lead in them is so low, some shoppers are convinced there’s little risk of an imminent toxic catastrophe.

saying the former Alaska governor should stick to her home state. In an interview with CNN’s Larry King scheduled for airing yesterday, Mrs. Bush says she sat next to Palin once and “thought she was beautiful.” The outspoken wife of former President George H.W. Bush says Palin, who is considering a presidential run in 2012, seems “very happy in Alaska” but then adds, “I hope she’ll stay there.” In an excerpt provided by CNN, both Bushes compliment their son, former President George W. Bush, on the success of his recent memoir, “Decision Points.” The former president says his son has “done a good job selling the darn thing.”

-----------------------------------------------------------Tigers could be extinct in 12 years if unprotected

Demand in China poses the greatest threat to tigers in the wild and organized crime runs the illicit trade in the world’s largest felines, international experts said yesterday. About 150 tigers are killed each year by poachers - 5 percent of the world’s wild tiger population, Yuri Fedotov, head of the U.N. office on drugs and crime, told participants at a summit meant to address the animal’s rapid population decline. He said tiger poaching brings $5 million in profits. “Often, crimes against wildlife are related to money laundering, violence, and in some cases could even be tied to terrorism,� Fedotov said. “Only our common operations will help stop the trade.� Tigers once roamed most of Eurasia from the Tigris River to Siberia and Indonesia. But in the past century, the

number of countries that are home to tigers has dropped to 13 from 25, while three of the nine tiger subspecies have become extinct. The World Wildlife Fund and other experts say only about 3,200 tigers remain in the wild, a dramatic plunge from an estimated 100,000 a century ago.

St. Louis tops list of most dangerous US cities: Denver ranks 141

St. Louis overtook Camden, N.J., as the nation’s most dangerous city in 2009, according to a national study released Sunday. The study by CQ Press found St. Louis had 2,070.1 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, compared with a national average of 429.4. That helped St. Louis beat out Camden, which topped last year’s list and was the most dangerous city for 2003 and 2004. Detroit, Flint, Mich., and Oakland, [See THE UPDATE, page 10]

One grope over the line: Fliers’ anger at TSA boils over

How did an agency created to protect the public become the target of so much public scorn? After nine years of funneling travelers into ever longer lines with orders to have shoes off, sippy cups empty and laptops out for inspection, the most surprising thing about increasingly heated frustration with the federal Transportation Security Administration may be that it took so long to boil over. Even Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who is not subjected to security pat-downs when she travels, understands the public’s irritation. She, for one, wouldn’t want to go through such scrutiny. “Not if I could avoid it. No. I mean, who would?� Clinton told CBS’ “Face the Nation� in an interview broadcast Sunday.

Delta: Let flight attendants skip scanners, too

It’s a special kind of underwear - with a strategically placed fig leaf design and a Colorado man says it’ll get you through the airport screeners with your dignity intact. Jeff Buske says his invention uses a powdered metal that protects people’s privacy when undergoing medical or security screenings. Buske of Las Vegas, Nev.-Rocky Flats Gear says the underwear’s inserts are thin and conform to the body’s contours, making it difficult to hide anything beneath them. The mix of tungsten and other metals do not set off metal detectors. The men’s design has the fig leaf, while the one for women comes in the shape of clasped hands.


tougher security screenings, just as pilots can. The Transportation Security Administration has said it will let pilots skip the body scans and aggressive pat-downs that travelers get. Now, Delta CEO Richard Anderson has asked the TSA to let flight attendants get the same treatment. His request was included in a letter to employees over the weekend. The CEO’s letter says flight attendants are safety professionals just like pilots and should be included in the same security screening that pilots get. There was no immediate word from the TSA on Delta’s request.

TSA chief warns against boycott of airport scans

The nation’s airport security chief pleaded with Thanksgiving travelers for understanding and urged them not to boycott full-body scans on Wednesday, lest their protest snarl what is already one of the busiest, most stressful flying days of the year. Transportation Security Administration chief John Pistole said yesterday that such delaying actions would only “tie up people who want to go home and see their loved ones.� “We all wish we lived in a world where security procedures at airports weren’t necessary,� he said, “but that just isn’t the case.� He noted the alleged attempt by a Nigerian with explosives in his underwear to bring down a plane over Detroit last Christmas. Despite tough talk on the Internet, there was little if any indication of a passenger revolt yesterday at many major U.S. airports, with very few people declining the X-ray scan that can peer through their clothes. Those who refuse are subject to a pat-down search that includes the crotch and chest.

Feds raid 3 hedge funds linked to trading probe

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has raided three hedge funds in what one of the targets is calling a wideranging probe of insider trading in the financial industry. Bureau employees searched the New York offices of Level Global Investors LP, and the Stamford, Conn. headquarters of Diamondback Capital Management LLC, a law enforcement official said. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss an ongoing case. Another FBI official said the agency also searched a third site, at 30 Federal St. in Boston. Hedge fund Loch Capital Management LLC has its headquarters at that address. The FBI said in a statement that it had executed search warrants in the three states â&#x20AC;&#x153;in an ongoing investigation.â&#x20AC;? Agency spokesmen said they could not comment further because the court documents are under seal. A spokesman for Level Global acknowledged the raid took place yesterday.

Refugees: no return to town hit by drug war

Shell casings carpet the road outside a bullet-riddled subdivision on the outskirts of this colonial town on the Rio Grande Valley, abandoned by most of the 6,000 inhabitants following a nine-month battle by warring drug cartels. Nobody lives in the 65 one-story white houses across the border from Roma, Texas, except the abandoned pets that roam the streets of the Casas Geo development. Like 90 percent of those who once lived in Mier, they have fled to a shelter in the nearby city of Miguel Aleman, Mexicoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first such haven for people displaced by drug violence. While Mexicans increasingly have fled border towns up and down the Rio Grande Valley, Ciudad Mier is the most dramatic example so far of the increasing ferocity of war between rival drug cartels, and the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s failure to fight back. The state and federal governments say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safe to go back and that people are returning. One official even invited tourists to return. The scenes witnessed by The Associated Press say something else. Even during daylight hours, a Mexican army squad patrols the town nervously. A bullet-riddled army pick-

NYC jeweler sues Courtney Love to get bling back

A celebrity jeweler says Courtney Love hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t returned nearly $114,000 worth of borrowed baubles, and the gem dealer is suing to get them back. The rocker borrowed two white gold and diamond chains, a white gold, floral-design mesh bracelet and a pair of white gold and diamond pave hoop earrings on Sept. 21, Jacob & Co. said in a lawsuit filed yesterday. The suit says she has returned only the bracelet, despite demands for the other pieces. She indicated to the jeweler that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d lost the items, but their agreement specified that she was responsible for them â&#x20AC;&#x153;regardless of loss or damage,â&#x20AC;? said the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyer, Jeffrey Klarsfeld. Loveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spokesman and lawyer didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t immediately respond to messages. The lawsuit seeks the gems or their $113,700 value.

The multi-platinum country star is hitting the road June 16 on a 44-city arena tour in the U.S. with a schedule that gives him time to be with his wife, actress Nicole Kidman, and their 2-year-old daughter, Sunday Rose. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The thing is with balance, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never achieved.

Urban said of his family and career demands. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s maintained based on Nicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and my ability to stay present and make the adjustments as we go.â&#x20AC;? Urban told The Associated Press that he purposely structures a tour so heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not gone for months at a time. He plays for two or three nights, goes home for a few days, then heads back out again.

Bishop apologizes for royal wedding comments

Bishop Pete Broadbent of Willesden, an area in northwest London, said he apologized to William, Middleton and Prince Charles after British newspapers picked up comments he made on Twitter and Facebook. The bishop also said he was planning to be out of the country on a â&#x20AC;&#x153;republican day trip to Franceâ&#x20AC;? the day the couple weds, which may be declared a national holiday.

Vince Young out for season Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher said Vince Young needs season-ending surgery on his throwing hand.

The team is placing Young on injured reserve within the next few days, but after his latest meltdownâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; throwing his pads into the standsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Fisher said Young wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have

Young saw a hand specialist yesterday, and Fisher said team doctors recommended the surgery to repair Youngâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s torn flexor tendon in his right thumb. Young was injured late in the third quarter of Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 19-16 overtime loss to Washington. Fisher said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t knowâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sound as though he caredâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;if

Young will get an outside opinion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He may want to get a second opinion. He may want to get two dozen opinions. Our doctor said for his position, it needs to be fixed,â&#x20AC;? Fisher said. Rusty Smith, No. 2 on the depth chart on Sunday, replaced Young in the game and Fisher said the rookie will start against Houston.

offensive strategy and rigid communication style are gone, too, leaving behind a talented team thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s out of the playoff race and a leadership vacuum in an organization trying hard to rebuild public good will toward a new stadium.Childress was fired Monday, one season after he famously picked up Brett Favre at the airport, got a contract extension and came within a field goal of reaching the Super Bowl.

A toddler has died after falling 50 feet from a luxury suite at the Los Angeles Lakers game against the Golden State Warriors in the Staples Center arena. The 2-year-old, identified as Lucas Anthony Tang of Garden Grove, had crawled away from his parents’ sight and they were looking for him when they found out he had fallen, the Los Angeles Times reported on yesterday. Police Sgt. Frank Alvelais said yesterday that the boy was taken to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, where he died. The boy fell from the third level top tier of the luxury

suites several minutes after the Lakers beat the Warriors 117-89 on Sunday night. He was at the game with his parents and 11-year-old sister, the Times reported. Witnesses told the Times the boy was moving his arms, legs and head before paramedics took him out of arena on a stretcher. Officer Julie Sohn said Monday the LAPD child abuse unit is investigating because of the boy’s age. KTLA-TV reported that the child was taking pictures when he fell but later said that they couldn’t confirm that information.

Own goal in overtime lifts Colo Rapids to first MLS Cup FC Dallas coach Schellas Hyndman knows soccer can be cruel sometimes. It certainly was for FC Dallas defender George John on Sunday night in the MLS Cup. John deflected a shot into his own net in overtime and the Colorado Rapids beat FC Dallas 2-1 for their first MLS championship. “You play for 90 plus minutes and it’s a game of inches,” Hyndman said. “It’s a deflection goal. It goes in and you say ‘How did that happen?’” Dallas captain Daniel Hernandez found it hard to contain his emotions. “It definitely hurts to get this far and be so close,” Hernandez said. “There’s no words to describe the feeling if you win and there’s no words if you lose.” League MVP David Ferreira scored for Dallas in the first half, and Colorado’s Conor Casey, selected the game MVP, tied it in the second. In the second half of overtime,

Rapids substitute Macoumba Kandji took a long pass from Casey, drove inside the box, beat a defender and stabbed the ball across the face of the Dallas goal. His shot spun off John’s left thigh and over goalkeeper Kevin Hartman’s head. John was charged with an own goal. “I don’t mind how they come,” Rapids coach Gary Smith said. “If they’re winners, it doesn’t matter. For somebody to score an own goal there must be some pressure, they must be under some pressure, to make that mistake.” The 23-year-old John, a secondyear player from Washington, fell to one knee, holding his head in his hands. “I told him you don’t let stuff like that make you who you are,” Hartman said. “You can make it a footnote in your entire resume, but you don’t let it become who you are. He’s a solid defender. He’s probably one of the best defenders I’ve ever played with.” The attendance was announced

at 21,700, a sellout, but there were hundreds of empty seats scattered around the stadium. Dallas opened the scoring in the 35th minute when winger Marvin Chavez fired an precise cross into the path of a streaking Ferreira, who used his right foot to hammer the ball past Pickens. It was the second goal of the playoffs for Ferreira, who scored eight times during the regular season and also scored the opening goal last weekend in a 3-0 semifinal victory over Los Angeles. Colorado tied it in the 57th minute. Jamie Smith cut into the penalty area and fired a low ball at the net, with Casey arriving at the same time as Hartman and defender Jair Benitez. Casey reacted fastest when the ball squirted loose, kicking it into the goal while still lying on the grass. “(The ball) was caught up between the keeper and the defender,” Casey said. “It was on the ground under his arm. No one could really get to it but my toe so I just poked it in.”
