Crowds gather at Slifer Square in Vail Village last night for the official lighting of the Vail Village Christmas tree. Avery Cunliffe photo.

Last night, Father Christmas paid an early visit to Vail for the town’s annual tree-lighting ceremony, and he was among friends. When the Jolly Old Elf took the microphone on the stage in Slifer Square, he told the audience below that he planned to make his next trip on Dec. 24, but first asked children and adults alike one question – do they still believe? The crowd responded with a resounding cheer. More than 200 people braved temperatures below freezing to drink hot chocolate, munch on baked goods and dance to holiday favorites while waiting for Vail’s holiday season to officially kick off. Though the 12 days of Christmas haven’t even started yet, many of the area’s skiers [See VAIL TREE LIGHTING, page 18]

Mancuso suffered the same problems on the second run after having a terrific first run, finishing second in the field, just three hundredths behind Rebensburg of Germany. “I had a little problem on top and I felt like I lost my ski,” said Mancuso. “It was hard to get back in mentally. It was something in my head and I backed off.” Meanwhile Vonn, a Ski and Snowboard Club Vail racer, skied too straight and right off the winding course. For Vonn, an Olympic gold medalist in the Downhill, it was [See ASPEN, page 18]

Vail lights Christmas tree for 2010

The United States and South Korea began joint war games Sunday, as South Koreans demanded vengeance over a deadly North Korean artillery bombardment that has raised fears of more clashes between the bitter rivals. The North, meanwhile, worked to justify one of the worst attacks on South Korean territory since the 1950-53 Korean War. Four South Koreans, including two civilians, died after the North rained artillery on the small Yellow Sea island of Yeonpyeong, which is home to both fishing communities and military bases. North Korea said civilians were used as a “human shield” around artillery positions and lashed out at what it called a “propaganda campaign” against Pyongyang. It claimed the United States orches[See THE UPDATE, page 8]

Earlier in the week, she described the course as being very tricky. “The course is just so technical,” she said. “You can’t just ski the thing. You have to be game on and only the best skiers will win.” Schleper took a big spill while training there this week, a testament to how challenging the course is. “I’ve gone down once,” she said. “It should be exciting for both the racers and the audience.” Schleper was laying down a solid run before a minor speed check bounced her coming onto

alist Julia Mancuso, who has been training in Vail the last few weeks, led the U.S. squad with an eighth-place finish. Vail native Schleper was able to bag some World Cup points in 18th, the second-best finish of the Americans. Three-time World Cup overall winner Lindsey Vonn, also a Vail resident, skied out in the opening run. For Schleper, the top-20 finish was all too predictable. “The last three years I’ve been right around the top-20,” she said after the race. “I want to start getting top-15s, top-10s. I want to get back into that routine.”

Vail Resorts will host an open house about the newest plans for Ever Vail on Tuesday, Nov. 30, at 5:30 p.m. at the Arrabelle at Vail Square. Ever Vail, a proposed mixed-use project located in Vail between Lionshead and Cascade, seeks to redevelop a nearly 12-acre site that is currently home to an aging maintenance facility, office buildings and a former gas station. The purpose of the meeting is to update the public on the project’s recent change in plans and application materials. The revised plans reduce commercial space by more than 30 percent, and also include revisions to the Red Sandstone Creek corridor creating a larger open parklike area through the middle of the nearly 12-acre site. Ever Vail aims to provide an infill development to create a connection between Lionshead Village and Cascade Village. It seeks to bring

together mountain access, affordable and free-market housing, according to Ever Vail, LLC, an affiliate of Vail Resorts Development Company, which is in charge of the project. Ever Vail is now envisioned with three restaurants (down from six), from high-end dining to casualfamily dining, and a nightclub/live music venue. The retail proposed for Ever Vail is primarily located along the pedestrian corridor leading to the proposed new gondola with first-floor frontage. The plans still include a specialty grocer of approximately 13,000 square feet, and about 15,564 square feet of retail uses – down from about 36,000 square feet. Ever Vail proposes 422 residential dwelling units that may be a mix of affordable year-round housing, whole-ownership condominiums, and shared-ownership homes. On-site employee housing will

also be a key component of Ever Vail with about 41 of the total residential units proposed to be deedrestricted employee housing units. As currently proposed, there are 32 for-sale employee housing units and nine rental employee housing units. About 67 percent of the town of Vail’s employee housing requirement will be met within Ever Vail; regulations require only 50 percent to be on site. The Ever Vail project has been in the Town of Vail approval process since 2007, having been reviewed in about 30 meetings and hearings with the Town and the community. “The review process and community input have positively shaped and re-shaped the project since the original plan that was submitted three years ago,” Vail Resorts said in a press release, adding that the public is encouraged to voice their input once again at Tuesday’s meeting.

CDOT sponsored effort ‘Heat is On’ runs through tonight By Matt Minich Mountaineer Staff Writer Since local police beefed up their DUI enforcement Tuesday, they have arrested five drunk drivers in Eagle County, according to information released yesterday afternoon by the Gore Range DUI Task Force. Of those arrests, three were made Friday night. The task force is a cooperative effort between the Eagle, Avon and Vail Police Departments and the Eagle County Sheriff’s Department. All departments, as well as the Colorado State Patrol, have officers working overtime this weekend as part of a statewide enforcement campaign called “The Heat is On.” The campaign is a program of the Colorado Depart-

ment of Transportation, which pays overtime to officers to increase DUI enforcement during traditional party weekends like Halloween, Thanksgiving and New Year’s. In Eagle County, this means more than a dozen extra cops patrolling the streets. Last year, 587 drunk drivers were arrested statewide over the Thanksgiving weekend, but only 13 were nabbed in Eagle County. The increase in enforcement will continue until 3 a.m. Monday. “The Gore Range DUI Task Force would like to emphasize the point to plan ahead for a sober designated driver or take public transportation,” Deputy Jacob Best, the coordinator for the task force, said in a statement.

Lake Louise, Canada yesterday. Austria’s Michael Walchhofer crossed the finish in 1:47.78 for the first downhill victory of the 2010-11 season. The race is available for on-demand streaming at UniveralSports.com with the alpine package. “It was a beautiful day in Lake Louise, next to no wind and pretty consistent light which led for a fantastic race,” said Men’s Alpine Head Coach Sasha Rearick. “The team has not trained downhill since New Zealand, so it’s been a long time since we’ve been on our downhill skis. We have been getting a lot of work done in Lake Louise just trying to get back up to speed.” In a convincing fashion, Walchhofer showed the field he still can point it, winning the first World Cup downhill of the season by nearly a half a second. Miller was just over a second off Walchhofer’s pace finishing in 1:49.04. Olympic Super G bronze medalist Andrew Weibrecht didn’t hold back in his first race back after a successful shoulder surgery in the spring. “Bode skied very solid in the middle on the more technical parts of the course,” said Rearick. “I was really stoked with Weibrecht’s effort, he threw down an impressive run in the middle section of the hill, but unfortunately had a pretty big bobble going onto the flats that cost him a lot of time.” Steven Nyman was next in line for the U.S., followed by teammates Travis Ganong and Weibrecht. Returning from a sideling knee injury last season, World Cup rookie Tommy Biesemeyer took the final starting position of bib 72 and jumped 29 spots to finish 43rd. “We’ve trained more Super G in the past month in Vail,” Rearick said. “We feel more comfortable on

Comic book prices dropping Batman and Robin No. 17 was the best selling comic in the Vail Valley this week, and it’s priced $1 cheaper than No. 16 was. It’s all part of DC Comics’ linewide pricing adjustment, lowering the prices of all standard length 32-page ongoing comic book titles currently priced at $3.99 to $2.99. The new price point will go into

effect on most titles in January, although for the locally popular Batman and Robin series, it’s already taken effect. “[The announcement] re-affirms DC Comics’ commitment to both our core fans and to comic book store retailers,” said Jim Lee, DC Comics Co-Publisher. “For the long term health of the industry, we are

willing to take a financial risk so that readers who love our medium do not abandon the art form.” The Vail Valley’s only comic book store will have all of the newly reduced DC titles, says owner Tom Robbins. The store contains a wealth of holiday gift opportunities, is located in the West Vail mall and is open from 10 a.m. to midnight every day.

First Will and Kate book published

First came the royal engagement. Now - 10 days later - the first book. “William and Kate: A Royal Love Story,� by The Sun newspaper’s royal reporter James Clench was published in Britain Friday, the first in a slew of new titles about the relationship between Prince William and Kate Middleton that publishers hope will set cash registers chirping in the months before their April 29 wedding at Westminster Abbey. Published by Harper Collins and The Sun - both owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. - the book is scattered with photos by Arthur Edwards, the paper’s long-serving royal photographer. It is one of several books on the royal romance in the works. They include one by celebrity journalist Andrew Morton, whose 1992 book “Diana: Her True Story� rocked the royal family and punctured the image of Princess Diana’s and Prince Charles’ fairy-tale romance with its details of bulimia, depression and infidelity.

Authorities say an irate 84-year-old man hit a deputy in the stomach with his cane when the officer warned him to leave a clinic where he had been cursing at an office manager. The News Herald newspaper reports that the northwest Florida man was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and resisting an officer. Bay County sheriff’s deputies were called to Callaway Clinic on Wednesday night because the man was yelling and cursing at an office manager. According to a police report, the office manager asked authorities to remove the man from the clinic. Once outside, the man’s rant grew louder. When the deputy warned the man he would be arrested if he didn’t leave, the man allegedly hit the officer in the stomach with his cane. Deputies say the man also hit the officer in the leg as he was being handcuffed.

Congress’ tax-cut decision and the economy

On this, economists agree: Extending tax cuts passed under President George W. Bush for low- and middleincome people would strengthen the weak economy. The question is what to do about the highest-paid 3 percent of taxpayers. Should Congress let their tax cuts expire at year’s end as scheduled? Extend them for only a while? Or make them permanent? It isn’t just a debate over how much money highincome Americans should get to keep. It’s about how much their tax cuts might aid the economy. And how much they’ll affect the budget deficit years from now. But first, consider what would happen next year if Congress let the tax cuts for everyone expire as scheduled. According to Moody’s Analytics, the deficit would drop to $732 billion. That’s well below the $1.3 trillion deficit for the budget year that ended Sept. 30. At the same time, the economy would suffer, Moody’s says: Growth would tail off to just 0.9 percent next year. That’s scarcely more than a recessionary pace. And unemployment would average 10.7 percent next year.

Cargo plane crashes into Pakistani housing complex

A cargo plane crashed into a housing complex in Karachi soon after takeoff Sunday, setting off a huge blaze and killing all eight Russian crew on board, Pakistan’s civil aviation authority said. At least one person on the ground was injured, but the Russian-made plane missed several densely populated apartment blocks by a few hundred yards (meters). About 20 houses were damaged or destroyed though most were under construction and believed to be unoccupied, locals said. The Sudan-bound plane crashed around 1:50 a.m., when many people in the upscale neighborhood of Pakistan’s largest city were asleep. One of the plane’s engines was on fire when it flew overhead, several witnesses said.

wolves and maybe leopards. Russian scientist Sergey Zimov is reintroducing these animals to the land where they once roamed in millions to demonstrate his theory that filling the vast emptiness of Siberia with grass-eating animals can slow global warming. “Some people have a small garden. I have an ice age park. It’s my hobby,” says Zimov, smiling through his graying beard. His true profession is quantum physics.

Hunters may have delivered fatal blow to mammoths

During the last Ice Age, shaggy mammoths, woolly rhinos and bison lumbered across northern Siberia. Then, about 10,000 years ago - in the span of a geological heartbeat, or a few hundred years - the last of them disappeared. Many scientists believe a dramatic shift in climate drove these giant grazers to extinction. But two scientists who live year-round in the frigid Siberian plains say that man -either for food, fuel or fun - hunted the animals to extinction. Paleontologists have been squabbling for decades over how these animals met their sudden demise. The most persuasive theories say it was humanity and nature: Dramatically warming temperatures caused a changing habitat and brought a migration of men armed with deep-piercing spears. No one knows for sure what set off global warming back then - perhaps solar activity or a slight shift in the Earth’s orbit. But, in an echo of the global warming debate today, Sergey Zimov, director of the internationally funded Northeast Science Station, and his son Nikita say man was the real agent of change.

Cuban-American to head House Foreign Affairs

She hung up on the next president, Barack Obama. Twice. She thought it was a prank. In an expert stroke of political spin, she immediately sent out a press release explaining the apparent snub as a mix-up. Meet Florida U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, the first Cuban-American to serve in Congress and the next in line to head the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The phone incident occurred in late 2008 as the president-elect reached out to potentially friendly Republicans and shortly after a radio host fooled Sarah Palin by impersonating the president of France on the phone. But it was vintage “Ily,” as she is known in Washington: frank, almost irreverent, yet imbued with an underlying seriousness and political savvy. It also was a reminder that Ros-Lehtinen, 58, presents an increasingly rare image these days - a politician occasionally willing to work across the aisle. [See THE UPDATE, page 10]

Her father keeps turning wanted ‘spectacular show’ down marriage proposals, and her hefty salary keeps going directly to his bank account. The surgeon in the holy city of Medina knows her father, also her male guardian, is violating Islamic law by forcibly keeping her single, a practice known as “adhl.� So she has sued him in court, with questionable success. Adhl cases reflect the many challenges facing single women in Saudi Arabia. But what has changed is that more women are now coming forward with their cases to the media and the law. Dozens of women have challenged their guardians in court over adhl, and one has even set up a Facebook group for victims of the practice. The backlash comes as Saudi Arabia has just secured a seat on the governing board of the new United Nations Women’s Rights Council - a move many activists have decried because of the desert kingdom’s poor record on treatment of women. Saudi feminist Wajeha al-Hawaidar describes male guardianship as “a form of slavery.�

Sweet success: Fannie May back after bankruptcy

Dinner Specials Nightly 7

A half-dozen years ago iconic chocolatier Fannie May, loved by Chicago candy devotees who passed down their affections for mint meltaways, caramels and vanilla buttercreams from generation to generation, was all but finished. The candy company launched in 1920 was in bankruptcy. More than 200 of its retail stores were closed. Customers who worried they would never be able to buy the chocolates again stripped display cases and emptied shelves of the confections. But six years after its 2004 near-meltdown, Fannie May has seen a turnaround and is thriving again thanks to what its executives say has been a mix of the old and the new: a strict adherence to decades-old chocolate recipes and growth and expansion in online and retail sales.

A Somali-born teenager plotted “a spectacular show� of terrorism for months, saying he didn’t mind that children would die if he bombed a crowded Christmas tree-lighting ceremony, according to a law-enforcement official and court documents. He never got the chance. Mohamed Osman Mohamud, 19, was arrested Friday in downtown Portland after using a cell phone to try to detonate what he thought were explosives in a van, prosecutors said. It turned out to be a dummy bomb put together by FBI agents, and authorities said the public was never in danger. The case is the latest in a string of alleged terrorist planning by U.S. citizens or residents, including a Times Square plot in which a Pakistan-born man pleaded guilty earlier this year to trying to set off a car bomb at a busy street corner. In the Portland plot, Mohamud believed he was receiving help from a larger ring of jihadists as he communicated with undercover agents, but a law enforcement official who wasn’t authorized to discuss the case publicly and spoke on a condition of anonymity told The Associated Press that no foreign terrorist organization was directing him.

Higher gas prices won’t slow most holiday shoppers

Many Americans are determined not to let higher gas be the Grinch that spoils their holiday spending plans. Gas prices on average have risen about 17 cents since Labor Day, following a $12 increase in oil prices. By one analyst’s estimate, that means Americans are spending around $68 million more on gas each day than in early September. While that sounds like a threat to sales of Barbie Video Girl dolls and even iPods, on an individual basis the increase amounts to $3 or $4 extra to fill up a car, a bit more for an SUV or a pick-up. Many motorists absorb the cost increases by skipping the gourmet coffee or passing on a movie. Or they drive less. Cassie Peterson, 25, a health coordinator from St. Paul, said higher prices won’t change what she buys for her nieces, as she pumped gas into a Ford F-350 pickup truck at a SuperAmerica gas station in White Bear Lake, Minn., on Friday. She paid $2.80 per gallon.

Millions of Monarch butterflies migrate here from the United States and Canada every year, but their numbers declined by 75 percent last year alone, apparently because of changing weather and vegetation patterns. The Monarch butterfly reserve shows how complex the battle against climate change has become, as the world prepares for a United Nations climate conference in Cancun next week. The conference is expected to focus in part on how best to preserve forests, with questions about who should pay and and how to treat communities who already live in the jungles and forests of developing countries.

Teens adrift at sea almost lost hope

For more than 50 days, the three boys slurped rainwater that puddled in the bottom of their tiny boat, gobbled flying fish that leaped aboard and prayed for salvation. Etueni Nasau and his two cousins almost gave up hope they would survive as they bobbed in their aluminum dinghy across the South Pacific for more than seven weeks, before a fishing trawler spotted them by chance and brought an end to their extraordinary ordeal. “I thank God for keeping us alive all this while, while were drifting out in open sea,” Nasau, 14, told The Associated Press. “We prayed every day that someone will find us and rescue us. We thought we would die.” In a shy, quiet voice, Nasau spoke yesterday from his hospital bed in Fiji, where the trio were brought a day earlier and quickly treated for dehydration, bad sunburn and malnourishment.

Lebanese PM seeks support in Iran visit

Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri expressed concerns for stability in the Middle East as he began a visit to Tehran yesterday to rally Iran’s support for his efforts to keep Lebanon stable amid tensions over a U.N. probe into the assassination of his father, Rafik Hariri. The visit follows President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s October tour of Lebanon, during which the Iranian leader reinforced Tehran’s ties to the Lebanese militant Hezbollah group, a longtime protege of the Shiite powerhouse. The exuberant welcome the Shiite Hezbollah staged for Ahmadinejad in Lebanon threw Hariri’s Westernbacked factions in the government on the defensive. After touchdown in Tehran, Hariri was greeted by Iran’s Vice President Mohammad Reza Rahimi and reviewed an honor guard before heading in to meetings. Lebanon’s fragile unity government, which includes Hezbollah, has been struggling ahead of expected indictments by the U.N. tribunal investigating former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri’s 2005 slaying.

Willie Nelson charged with pot possession in Texas

A U.S. Border Patrol spokesman says country singer Willie Nelson was charged with marijuana possession after 6 ounces was found aboard his tour bus in Texas. Patrol spokesman Bill Brooks says the bus pulled into the Sierra Blanca, Texas, checkpoint about 9 a.m. Friday. Brooks says an officer smelled pot when a door was opened and a search turned up marijuana. Brooks says the Hudspeth County sheriff was contacted and Nelson was NELSON among three people arrested. Sheriff Arvin West didn’t immediately return a phone message left at his home Friday, but he told the El Paso Times that Nelson claimed the marijuana was his. The singer was held briefly a $2,500 bond before being released.

San Diego drug tunnel had railcar, tons of pot

Investigators suspect a major drug cartel was the driving force behind two long, sophisticated tunnels connecting Mexico with the U.S. that were discovered this month along with more than 40 tons of marijuana. Authorities said an underground passage located Thursday was similar to one found earlier - both running around 2,000 feet from Mexico to San Diego and equipped with lighting, ventilation, and a rail system for drugs to be carried on a small cart. The tunnels are believed to be the work of Mexico’s Sinaloa cartel, headed by that country’s most-wanted drug lord, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, said Mike Unzueta, head of investigations at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in San Diego.

Tracking down the fugitive who resembles a tattooed Santa Claus has proven as hard as “trying to catch a ghost” for the federal authorities canvassing tightlipped residents among the small farms in a rural area southeast of Louisville. Boone, who’s trying to avoid the life sentence he would get if convicted a third time of growing pot, has plenty of sympathizers in an area where many farmers down on their luck have planted marijuana. —Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray relentlessly ran each other all over the court for more than three hours in a match that flip-flopped throughout. Nadal finally got the breaks he needed Saturday to win 7-6 (5), 3-6, 7-6 (6). The top-ranked Spaniard had to overcome a mid-match slump to reach his first final at the ATP World Tour Finals, where he will face 16-time major champion Roger Federer. “(It) was (an) incredible tennis match,� said Nadal, who won this year’s U.S. Open to complete a career Grand Slam. “(This) was a really difficult match against one of the best players of the world.� The reigning French Open, Wimbledon and U.S. Open champion has never before played in the final of the season-ending event for the top eight players. And to win his first title, he’ll have to play fourtime champion Federer Sunday at the O2 Arena. Federer beat Novak Djokovic 6-1, 6-4 in the other semifinal. “Obviously I’m really looking forward to playing against Rafa tomorrow,� Federer said. “Who wouldn’t?� In the early match, both Nadal and Murray looked strong throughout the first set, which the Spaniard won in a tiebreaker despite a late surge from Murray. But Nadal started to falter after holding serve to lead 3-2 in the second. Murray won 17 of the next 23 points—and four straight games—to take the set and even the score. “I was a little bit tired in the sec-

ond,� Nadal said. “And when he break me, I said, ‘Well, going to be very difficult to come back to this set.�’ Nadal never fully regained his form after the mid-match slump, but he was able to break Murray to take a 2-1 lead in the third set. The Spaniard then had his first match point on Murray’s serve while leading 5-3, but the fifth-ranked Briton managed to hold the game, break back to 5-5 and force the final tiebreaker. In the tiebreaker, Murray won the first three points—two of them

Murray again saved that one, but he couldn’t do anything about the final match point, which Nadal won with an inside-out forehand.

To attack.� A radio attached to his black sports shorts begins squawking wildly. Police have captured a lookout on the edge of the western Rio slum his gang rules. Young men with rifles and semiautomatic pistols are scurrying about, preparing for yet another police invasion.

ATHLETIC STUFF

McDaniels, Broncos fined in filming probe Video operations director fired The NFL fined the Denver Broncos and coach Josh McDaniels $50,000 each because the team’s video operations director filmed a San Francisco 49ers practice in London last month -- a penalty that some say is too lenient. The NFL investigation determined Steve Scarnecchia took a six-minute video of the walkthrough and presented it that day to McDaniels. The coach declined to view it. Still, the NFL fined both the coach and team because the matter was not promptly reported, as required by the league. Scarnecchia was also involved in the NFL’s last videotaping scandal, dubbed Spygate. After the Patriots were caught videotaping New York Jets coaches sending in signals during a 2007 game, the league’s investigation determined New England had violated rules over several seasons. Scarnecchia, who had left the Patriots by the time they were caught, was found to have taken part in the videotaping when he worked for the team in the early 2000s. Scarnecchia was fired by the Broncos and was notified by Commissioner Roger Goodell that, as a repeat violator of league rules regarding the integrity of the game, he faced a hearing to determine if he would be banned from the NFL. “We certainly did not view or do anything with the footage, and he was made aware that it was something we didn’t condone in our organization,” McDaniels said Saturday. “I failed to follow through and report it to the proper individuals in our organization and with the league.” Asked why he failed to report the incident immediately, McDaniels said: “I made a mistake. I made a mistake and I should

have done that right away. We felt we handled it the right way by not doing anything with that but I did not follow through with it.” McDaniels also worked for New England, but NFL Executive Vice President Jeff Pash said there was no evidence he was involved with the videotaping there. The Broncos didn’t report this latest incident to the NFL for nearly two weeks, and Scarnecchia remained involved with the team until mid-November. Two hours before the league announced the results of its investigation Saturday, the team said Scarnecchia was on a leave of absence. Later, it said he’d been fired. McDaniels, who worked in New England from 2001-09, hired Scarnecchia in Denver shortly after he became the Broncos’ coach 22 months ago. “When we hired Steve, it was with the understanding that he would come here and do good work,” McDaniels said. “In no way did we think this situation or type of situation would come up and be an issue for us or for him.” Broncos chief operating officer Joe Ellis said that when Scarnecchia was hired, the team was aware he had been involved in Spygate, but not of the specifics. “He knew full well what was expected from him in terms of the types of behavior we would expect out of him,” Ellis said on a conference call. The videotaping occurred during practices at Wembley Stadium on Oct. 30, the day before the 49ers’ 24-16 win over the Broncos. It was the only time the teams worked out on the same field in London. Ellis said the Broncos promptly notified the NFL after their

The NFL investigation determined the Broncos’ video operations director Steve Scarnecchia took the six-minute video of the walkthrough and presented it that day to McDaniels. The coach declined to view it. AP photo.

executives learned of the violation. He declined to reveal how they became aware. The NFL determined Broncos executives were told about the videotaping Nov. 8, and told the league about it four days later after an internal review. On Nov. 16, Broncos owner Pat Bowlen, Ellis and team general counsel Rich Slivka met with league officials in New York. After that meeting, NFL security began its investigation, which included interviews of Broncos personnel and an analysis of laptop computers used by the team’s video department. It was confirmed the 49ers’ practice had been recorded, and the league retained that tape. Scarnecchia acknowledged to NFL investigators he taped the walkthrough, according to excerpts from a letter Goodell sent to Bowlen. The letter stated that Scarnecchia maintained that he had not previously recorded a walkthrough or other practice or “engaged in any other improper videotaping (such as recording coaching signals of an opposing

team) since joining the Broncos.” The letter also said Scarnecchia “knew that what he did in London was wrong,” that taping the walkthrough was his decision alone and nobody instructed him to record the practice. In addition, the investigation found that when Scarnecchia offered to show the tape to McDaniels, the coach replied, “No, I’m not doing that.” Scarnecchia said he didn’t show the tape to any other staff member. Goodell’s letter to Bowlen said that McDaniels was interviewed “under circumstances that would have made it impossible for him to have spoken to Mr. Scarnecchia in advance” and that McDaniels’ recollection of events matched Scarnecchia’s. McDaniels should have immediately notified team executives of what happened, however, the commissioner wrote. Goodell cited a policy in which team executives, head coaches and others are obliged to promptly report violations tied to the integrity of the game. Pash said

that as a coordinator and head coach, McDaniels would have been required to file a report with the league at the end of each season that acknowledged the policy. The league issued a much sterner punishment against the Patriots after Spygate. It included imposing $750,000 in fines against the team and coach Bill Belichick, and stripping New England of its 2008 first-round draft pick for what were found to be repeated violations. Is $50,000 fine enough? Some people think not considering numerous players have been fined $75,000 this year for helmet-to-helmet hits, and McDaniels knowingly hid this incident by not reporting it soon after it happened, which presents an integrity issue according to some. This is the latest embarrassment for a Broncos team that is 3-7 and has lost 15 of 20 for the first time since 1971-72. The Broncos face St. Louis at Invesco Field today. —The Associated Press

Venezuelan pro challenging Hugo Chavez attack on golf Jhonattan Vegas is hoping to turn what looks like a grim future for golf in Venezuela into an opportunity. Vegas has become the first Venezuelan to earn a PGA Tour card at the same time that golf is under assault in his country with President Hugo Chavez calling it a pastime of the rich and threatening to seize elite clubs to make way for public housing. Chavezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s government already has shut down some courses, including the one where Vegasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; father was the groundskeeper and first introduced his son to the game. The 26-year-old Vegas qualified for next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s PGA Tour by finishing among the top 25 on the Nationwide Tour money list in his third season of professional golf. He wants to use his position on the PGA Tour to help keep golf alive in his homeland, particularly among those who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to join expensive private clubs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the things I hope to do for the country is take the sport to the people, and to have people get to know golf a lot better,â&#x20AC;? Vegas said in an interview with The Associated Press. When he secured his card last month, Vegas achieved a dream that long eluded Venezuelan golfers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We come from a super humble family that always had to work to achieve things,â&#x20AC;? Vegas said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But my father always gave everything he had to provide us with that opportunity.â&#x20AC;? Especially out on the fairways. Vegas grew up with his parents and three brothers in a remote oil drilling camp in Morichal, in the swath of oil fields along the Orinoco River. His father sold food to the oil workers and was the groundskeeper for the campâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nine-hole golf course. That now-abandoned course is one of six that have been closed by Venezuelaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s government in the past seven yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;all but one of them on land owned by the state oil company. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a disappointing trend for Vegas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately here in Venezuela, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re closing the courses on us instead of opening new onesâ&#x20AC;? as many countries are around the world, he said.

Chavez has warned that he could expropriate private courses in Caracas to make way for public housing complexes. In one televised appearance last year, Chavez called golf a â&#x20AC;&#x153;bourgeois sportâ&#x20AC;? while discussing his plans for transforming Venezuela into a socialist state.Of the 17 courses that remain in the country, only two are public, severely limiting the access to those who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to play at the private clubs. In Venezuela, golf fans are hoping the sport will get a boost from Vegasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; emergence in a country where baseball has long been the No. 1 sport and Chavezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s threats have halted construction of new courses. The course shutdowns by the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;most recently on Margarita Island after Chavez ordered a hotel expropriatedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;have hindered efforts to expand the sport in country, said Juan Nutt, president of the PGA of Venezuela. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping Vegas can help turn that around. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When Jhonattan is playing in next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tour and he goes on television, there are going to be many more followers of golf in this country, even if they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t golfers,â&#x20AC;? Nutt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot more attention is going to be paid to a sport that traditionally hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been followed much in this country.â&#x20AC;?

VAIL TREE LIGHTING

–––––––––––----------------------------------------------------------------

and snowboarders have already gotten one item on their lists – fresh powder. On opening day, Vail Mountain started the lifts with 1,100 acres of open terrain, and the snow has been deeper and softer this November than during any in recent memory. In a brief speech before the tree lighting, Vail Mayor Dick Cleveland gave thanks not only to the town’s public works employees and U.S. Servicemen and women, but for the unseasonable bounty of snow. “We’ve got epic snow,” he said. “Probably the best snow we’ve had in 15 years for Thanksgiving.” Cleveland shared the stage with Vail’s Dickens Carolers, who sang holiday favorites like “Silent Night,” and even “Jingle Bell Rock,” and Father Brooks Keith of the Episcopal Church of Transfiguration, who took the stage to a different tune. Immediately after Father Brooks’ introduction, a mechanical mix-up routed a few seconds of heavy metal guitar through the speakers. Before bowing his head in prayer and gave thanks for American freedoms and

the sacrifices made to preserve it, he took a jab at his own expense. “The musical theme for the blessing will be by Whitesnake this evening,” he joked. When all was said and done and the lone tree was lit, the Father, Mayor

ASPEN WINTERNATIONAL another setback in the giant slalom, an event that’s not exactly her forte. She has never finished on the podium in a World Cup giant slalom. “Got a little excited and amped up,” Vonn said in an interview released by the U.S. Ski Team after she didn’t talk following her opening run. “That sometimes happens in ski racing.” Vonn carried too much speed into an upper section of the course and couldn’t recover to make a gate, leaving a spray of snow in her wake. This after all the work she’s put in over the summer to improve her giant slalom, fine-tuning her workouts and her diet to become more explosive. “I felt like I was skiing the best I ever have in my life and just didn’t really translate it over into the race,” Vonn said. “I think sometimes my mind gets the better of me and I get too excited. I just want it so bad that sometimes I make the wrong choices on the course.” Vonn’s husband and chief adviser, Thomas, was fully expecting a solid showing, especially after the way she’s been training.

Cleveland, Mr. and Mrs. Claus and the carolers all piled into a shuttle to lead a parade of floats, costumed characters, locals and tourists down Meadow Drive to the Lionshead Mall. There they did the whole thing over again, in almost the exact same fashion,

but with a few extra perks. The crowd enjoyed music from the Alpine Wind Ensemble, and many took advantage of free cookies and cider provided by the Arrabelle at Vail Square. The festivities were held out front of Billy’s Island Grill, and many visitors laced up their skates and got on the nearby skating rink, which was renting skates for just $5 throughout the entire ceremony. After the tree was lit and the organizers dispersed, many stayed outside the Quicksilver show to watch “Sup Bro,” a low-budget snowboarding movie. This year, the tree-lighting was performed a bit earlier than usual. It is usually held the weekend before Christmas, but this year was held just before the beginning of Chanuka, which goes from Dec. 1-8. In the coming weeks, Vail will play host to a number of holiday-themed events, including a nightly candle lighting during the days of Chanuka, the new family-themed Holidaze events and the town’s famous Snow Daze celebration, which this year will feature free concerts from headliners O.A.R. and Weezer.

“For some reason, the bad luck seems to come out in the GS,” Thomas Vonn said. “Speed-wise, she’s there. It wouldn’t have surprised me if she won today. That’s why it’s that much more crushing.

“Sometimes, you just need to get that one big finish under your belt. For some reason in the GS, it doesn’t seem to want to happen. I still think she will have some good results this year.” The Olympic champion immediately

turned her focus to today’s slalom by heading back onto the snow after the race to train. “I’m definitely disappointed in today but I’m still optimistic,” Vonn said. “My training has been going really well both in GS and slalom so I’m just looking forward to the next race and trying to stay positive and keep working hard.” Last year’s Winternational Slalom gave Vonn trouble as she skidded off the icy course. After this weekend, it’s on to Lake Louise, a place Vonn has traditionally done well, winning seven downhill races since 2004. “I feel like the first few races of the season, the technical races are really hard for me,” Vonn said. “When I go to Lake Louise, I feel like (it’s) my home turf and I feel like I pick up my confidence and finally get the ball rolling. “Hopefully, this year will be the same as all the other years.” NBC will air the women’s GS at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday, Nov. 28 with replay set for Dec. 4 at 4 p.m. on Versus.

How To Create Your Own Balance Sheet

H

ow do you judge your financial worth? Is it by your annual income? Or do you prepare a balance sheet to determine your worth? A true test of financial success is not how much you make but how much you have. A balance sheet will help you determine this. A balance sheet is a snapshot of By Rachel Overlease-Gerlach, your President financial position at a specific moment in time. It displays your assets (what you own) against your liabilities (what you owe).
