New recycling manager trying to keep material out of landfill County’s $5.2M facility has been open since March By Chris Hoff Mountaineer Contributing Writer

Celebrating 10 Years





It has been a long day on the mountain, you grab a water bottle and within seconds it is empty and sitting in the recycling. You head up the mountain for another run, but what happens to your plastic bottle? In this area, it is collected and sent to the Eagle County Recycling center in Wolcott. The new, $5.2 million facility has been open since January. Once at the center, your water bottle will join an average of nearly 670 tons of monthly recycling from Eagle County, Pitkin County and the Glenwood Springs area of Garfield County. The huge stream of paper, cardboard, aluminum cans and plastic bottles is overseen by Recycling Manager Jesse Masten. 670 tons is about 2,500 dumpsters; Masten said a MASTEN dumpster holds an average of 400 pounds of garbage. Masten has worked the last two-and-half years in waste management for the county, he has been the manager of the recycling center since it opened in January of this year. The recycling center takes in materials from Eagle County drop sites, Vail Honey Wagon, a drop site in the town of Vail, Pitkin County, and Glenwood. The county drop sites are large dumpsters marked for recycling, in Gypsum next to Columbine, at the Eagle County Fairgrounds, in Edwards at the rest stop, and in Avon near Wal-Mart. In a perfect world, there would be two different streams of materials coming from these locations, what is called a fiber stream: paper and cardboard, and what is called a co-mingled stream: plastics, glass, aluminum, and tin. In reality not only are the recyclables

often not separated, trash has been deposited into the containers as well. Masten takes this all in stride. “We just deal with it,” he said. In theory, he has the right to send containers with an excessive amount of trash mixed in on to the landfill, however this is something Masten said he has only had to do once. It was a container full of wet paper, he explained they can’t bail wet paper and they couldn’t process it. The recycling center’s handling of paper and cardboard is simple. It gets bailed; paper gets shipped to Arizona, and cardboard to a mill in Oklahoma. “I try really hard to not send anything up to the landfill,” Masten said. The journey for your plastic bottle is longer. It came in with the co-mingled batch, which first gets dumped on the recycling center’s floor. There workers manually take out trash, paper, and plastic bags. “Plastic bags are our biggest enemy,” Masten said. The center doesn’t recycle them because there is no market for the material. In fact, plastics numbered three through seven aren’t recycled for the same reason. Common containers like sour cream and yogurt containers are in this group; if you examine the bottom of a plastic container you will see a number one through seven inside a small recycling circle. Your plastic water bottle is not a three through seven. Your plastic water bottle, along with the rest of the co-mingled recyclables, is pushed onto a conveyor belt, the first step is a pre-sort. Once again, trash and plastic bags are removed by hand. The first material taken out of the co-mingled stream is glass. The stream passes through a metal chamber containing spinning drums with small teeth, the glass is broken and falls through a screen into a collection bin below. Plastics, and the rest of the materials pass on to [See RECYCLING CENTER, page 17]

Picasso find electrifies art world

Pablo Picasso almost never stopped creating, leaving thousands of drawings, paintings and sculptures that lure crowds to museums and mansions worldwide. Now, a retired electrician says that 271 of the master’s creations have been sitting for decades in his garage. Picasso’s heirs are claiming theft, the art world is savoring what appears to be an authentic find, and the workman, who installed burglar alarms for Picasso, is defending what he calls a gift from the most renowned artist of the 20th century. Picasso’s son and other heirs say they were approached by electrician Pierre Le Guennec in September to authenticate the undocumented art from Picasso’s signature Cubist period. Instead, they filed a suit for illegal possession of the works — all but alleging theft by a man not known to be among the artist’s friends. Police raided the electrician’s French Riviera home last month, questioned him and his wife and confiscated the disputed artworks.

Obama freezes federal pay

$ 95

President Barack Obama yesterday called for freezing the pay of 2 million federal employees, saying the move is the first of many difficult decisions that must be made to slash the nation’s mounting deficits. “The hard truth is that getting this deficit under control is going to require some broad sacrifice, and that sacrifice must be shared by the employees of the federal government,� Obama said. The two-year freeze would apply to all civilian federal employees, including those working at the Department of Defense, but would not affect military personnel. The freeze is expected to save more than $5 billion in savings over two years, $28 billion over five years and more than $60 billion over 10 years, White House officials said.

leader, said he would closely study Obama’s request. “Meaningful deficit deduction cannot be achieved through a piecemeal approach to trimming federal spending,� Hoyer said. Active members of the military “serving in harm’s way� should be exempt, he said, but he questioned the wisdom of leaving out military members in noncombat roles while subjecting their civilian counterparts to the freeze. “I did not reach this decision easily, this is not a line item on a federal ledger, these are people’s lives,� Obama said.

23 percent Medicare pay cut for doctors put on hold

Congress agreed yesterday to a one-month delay in Medicare payment cuts to doctors, giving a short-term reprieve to a looming crisis over treatment of the nation’s elderly. The House, in approving by voice vote the bill passed by the Senate earlier this month, postponed a 23 percent cut in doctors’ pay scheduled to take effect Dec. 1. That gives lawmakers a month to come up with a longerterm plan to overhaul a system that in recent years has bedeviled Congress, angered doctors and jeopardized health care for 46 million elderly and disabled. “This bill is a stopgap measure to make sure that seniors and military families can continue to see their doctors during December while we work on the solution for the next year,� said Rep. Frank Pallone, D-N.J., chairman of the Energy and Commerce health subcommittee. Health care payment formulas for military service members and veterans are tied to Medicare.

Kershner already had made a number of well-received movies when he was hired by George Lucas to direct “Empire,â€? which was the second produced but fifth in the “Star Warsâ€? chronology. The 1980 production was a darker story than the original. In it, hero Luke Skywalker loses a hand and learns that villain Darth Vader is his father. The movie initially got mixed reviews but has gone on to become one of the most critically praised. Kershner told Vanity Fair in October that he tried to give the sequel more depth than the original.

Supreme Court to look at Arizona campaign law

Less than a year after removing most limits on elec-

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------tion spending by corporations and organized labor, the Supreme Court is signaling trouble for another campaign law that aims to curtail the political power of big money. The court yesterday said it will consider dismantling Arizona’s program that gives extra cash to publicly funded candidates who face privately funded rivals. Similar matching funds programs exist in a half-dozen other states and a handful of big cities. The court probably will strike down the Arizona program, according to Richard L. Hasen, an election law specialist at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles. He said this will further imperil public financing of campaigns by taking away “one of the only tools� left to make public financing attractive to candidates.

Somali terrorist suspect indicted

A 19-year-old Somali-American man was indicted yesterday on federal charges that he tried to blow up a car bomb at a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in downtown Portland. The indictment charged Mohamed Osman Mohamud with attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction. He was arrested Friday evening near the crowded Pioneer Courthouse Square, after a months-long FBI sting operation. Dozens of people — many of them women wearing head scarves — arrived at the federal court building where Mohamud was scheduled for a court hearing. One of them, Mujahid El-Naser, said he attended middle school in Portland with Mohamud and that he didn’t believe his friend would have gotten involved in the plot without encouragement of the FBI. Mohamud was arrested after he and an agent drove into downtown Portland in a white van that carried six 55-gallon drums with detonation cords and plastic caps, but all of them were inert. Authorities said they allowed the plot to proceed to obtain evidence to charge the suspect.

Bad news for clean freaks

Triclosan, the ingredient in most antibacterial soaps and gels, was first developed for use in medical settings. Its benefits there are undeniable. But everyday use of triclosan exposes users to unnecessary chemicals and fails to keep them any healthier than non-users, the San Francisco Chronicles, Thin Green Line blog reports. Scratch that: It actually makes users sicker. A new study conducted by researchers at the University of Michigan School of Public Health found that, among those 18 and under, higher levels of triclosan in urine correlated with higher rates of allergies. The researchers drew from data produced for the the 2003-2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. You see, triclosan doesn’t just target the bacteria that make us sick; it targets all bacteria — and some bacteria are beneficial to humans.

Scientists are reporting early success at transforming one kind of specialized cell into another, a feat of biological alchemy that doctors may someday perform inside a patient’s body to restore health. So if a heart attack damages muscle tissue in the heart, for example, doctors may someday be able to get other cells in that organ to become muscle to help the heart pump. That’s a futuristic idea, but researchers are enthusiastic about the potential for the new direct-conversion approach.�I think everyone believes this is really the future of so-called stem-cell biology,� says John Gearhart of the University of Pennsylvania, one of many researchers pursuing this approach.

Madonna sweats details in Mexico debut of new gym

When the glass doors of Hard Candy Fitness, Madonna’s first gym, officially slide open in Mexico City today, a mural of white, black and violet Warhol-esque images of the Queen of Pop will greet each client. But it’s no disco with exercise machines or Hard Rock Cafe-style temple of Madge memorabilia. The facilities are not much different from any other high-class gym in Mexico City, and very little screams that this is Madonna’s first fitness venture, apart from the name — the title of MADONNA her last album — which she says in fitness parlance is the perfect combination of “hard body� and “eye candy.� “It’s a sexy name that gives you the opportunity to have fun and to build strength as far as the imagination will allow,� the singer, dancer, actress, children’s author and clothing designer said in a Q&A provided by her handlers. Still, not every gym opens with a Hollywood red carpet appearance by one of the most powerful women in entertainment, who will cut the ribbon as tradition dictates, then teach a dance class for 20 hand-picked members with music by Paul Oakenfold, the DJ who opened her last tour.

women. Wartime rape victims were outraged when they heard rumors that Jolie’s directorial debut was about a victim in a rape camp falling in love with her rapist. Jolie’s producer denied the rumors. Bakira Hasecic, the head of the association Women Victims of War, says she will send a letter to the UNHCR, according to an interview published in daily newspaper Dnevni Avaz yesterday. Jolie had promised a meeting with the women in November and invited JOLIE them to shooting in Budapest but Hasecic said Jolie should come to Bosnia and meet the women there.

Gold and Silver prices are soaring

Gold for December delivery rose $19.80 to close at $1,377.60 an ounce, while December silver contracts rose 11.1 cents to close at $27.572 an ounce. The spike was largely driven by escalating tensions between North and South Korea, Patton said. The countries exchanged artillery fire last Tuesday after the North shelled an island near their disputed sea border, killing at least two South Korean marines, setting dozens of buildings ablaze and sending civilians fleeing for shelter. The clash, which put South Korea’s military on high alert, was one of the rivals’ most dramatic confrontations since the Korean War ended. At the same time, investors are worried about debtsaddled nations in Europe that might need further bank bailouts or fiscal stimulus. Such efforts could boost inflation and make gold even more attractive, Patton said.

Punishment phase for Rangel set for Thursday

It took House investigators 2 1/2 years and a jury of congressional peers two days to conclude Rep. Charles Rangel of New York violated House rules. A decision on his punishment will be much quicker. Possible sanctions include a House vote deploring his conduct, a fine and denial of certain privileges. The House ethics committee set a hearing Thursday on the appropriate punishment for Rangel, a Democrat who formerly wielded great influence as chairman of the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee. That’s only two days after an ethics panel of eight House members, sitting as a jury, found that Rangel’s financial and fundraising conduct violated ethical standards. Rangel, who has been without a defense team for weeks, can waive the hearing and ask the committee to deliberate his punishment.The ethics committee chairman, Democratic Rep. Zoe Lofgren of California, said tonight that the panel will vote on a recommended punishment after the hearing ends.

Betrayal turns deadly for 6 US soldiers

An Afghan border police officer opened fire on U.S. troops during a training mission in eastern Afghanistan yesterday, killing six of them in one of the worst such attacks in the past year, according to Afghan and NATO officials, the Washington Post reports. The shooting occurred along the border withPakistan in the Pachir Wagam district of Nangarhar province at a facility to train Afghan security forces, according to Ahmad Abdulzai, a spokesman for the provincial governor. A senior police official said the shooter had been recruited into the border police two years ago.

George W. Bush appears live on Facebook chat

Former President George W. Bush has pledged not to publicly criticize his successor, Barack Obama, but he did offer some praise yesterday during a live broadcast on Facebook to promote his new book. Bush participated in an hour-long discussion on Facebook Live with the site’s founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg and was asked what he thought the current administration was handling well. The former president responded that he liked Obama’s policy on Afghanistan. “I think the idea of putting more troops in was something that I can applaud,” Bush said. “I also appreciate some of the education position. As I understand it they do believe strongly that accountability is necessary in order to achieve excellence in the classrooms.” As the discussion started, Zuckerberg asked Bush why he decided to appear on Facebook. Bush quipped: “Because you’ve got a lot of people paying attention to us, and I’m trying to sell books.” He then told Zuckerberg that he loves entrepreneurship and a country that could help make someone like Zuckerberg able to realize his dream and, in turn, create jobs for many people. “Yours is a really interesting company, and plus: I’m shamelessly marketing,” he said. Bush, whose book, “Decision Points,” was released earlier this month, visited Facebook headquarters in Palo Alto, Calif., fielding questions from Zuckerberg, Facebook employees and those watching online who submitted questions during the broadcast on the company’s streaming video channel.

Kraft and Starbucks spar over distribution deal

20 years of quality workmanship at affordable prices.

Kraft Foods Inc. said yesterday it is starting an arbitration proceeding against Starbucks Corp.’s move to end its agreement with Kraft to distribute and promote its packaged coffee in stores. Earlier this month, Starbucks said it would end its agreement with the foodmaker, which began in 1998. Sales at grocery stores and other retailers are increasingly important to Starbucks, primarily because of its Via brand. During its most recent earnings report earlier this month, CEO Howard Schultz told investors the company plans to have more products available in stores in the future, after first introducing them in its cafes. Starbucks says Kraft did not meet its responsibilities to work closely with Starbucks on marketing decisions and customer contacts. It said its decision to end the distribution agreement is consistent with terms of their contract, initially set to expire in 2014.

The letter from the Federal Transit Administration’s chief financial officer to NJ Transit’s executive director demands payment of $271,101,291 by Dec. 24. It’s money the government wants New Jersey to repay for work done on the Hudson River tunnel before Republican Gov. Chris Christie terminated the project. NJ Transit Executive Director Jim Weinstein said earlier this month that the state hadn’t determined if it would have to pay any money back.

Wal-Mart to buy 51 percent of South Africa company

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is buying a controlling stake in South Africa’s Massmart in a 17 billion rand (approximately $2 billion) deal. The investment gives the world’s biggest retailer a foothold in the country as it looks to accelerate growth beyond its U.S. business. The two retailers announced yesterday that Wal-Mart would purchase 51 percent of Massmart for 148 rand ($20.71) per share. Massmart Holdings Ltd. currently has approximately 203.5 million shares outstanding, according to Thomson Reuters. The offer comes about a month after Wal-Mart disclosed it would likely make the partial offer instead of going with its original plan to buy all of Massmart for about $4.25 billion. The deal had sparked concerns from South African unions as well as some major stockholders. Massmart will continue to be listed on the Johannesburg exchange, addressing the concerns of stockholders. The company, based in Johannesburg, runs nearly 290 stores in 14 countries in Africa, with most in South Africa. It also manages eight wholesale and retail chains under various brand names including Game and Makro.

So you might want to try for one of everything. That would cost only $23,439, or 9.2 percent more than last year.The 27th annual holiday index has historically mirrored the national Consumer Price Index, but not this year.

Jesse Martin was steady as he walked through customs at the Edmonton airport, still wearing a metal halo that holds his head and neck stable. He has been recovering in hospital for the past month after surgery for the injury sustained during a body-check. The 22-year-old suffered three fractures of his C-2 vertebrae but recovered enough to walk into a news conference earlier this month on his own steam. He will spend the next five weeks in Edmonton recuperating and spending Christmas with his family before returning to school where he will support his team from the bench.

Who will coach Buffaloes in Pac-12? At age 70, former CU coach Bill McCartney thinks he is up for the job The rumor mill has been stirring since the Buffaloes loss to Nebraska Friday on who will coach CU when they move to the Pac-12 next year. Houston Nutt, Ole Miss Coach, was the man everyone had been mentioning was the No. 1 candidate to fill the job, but those rumors have since been busted after 9News in Denver reported on the air that Nutt will not be hired. Nutt apparently has a relationship with former Buffalo coach Bill McCartney, who now himself, at 70-years-old, is being considered to coach Colorado football again. McCartney says his time away from the game has rejuvenated his interest in coaching. “I don’t identify with the guys who have stayed in it, the Paternos, the Bowdens,” McCartney, whose Colorado team was ranked No. 3 when he retired, told The Times. “In fairness to them, they stayed on that pace, and it’s a strong current that you’re in, because the workload never gets done.” “I’m going to be significantly younger than

the typical 70-year-old,” he added. McCartney said his wife’s health has played a role in his renewed interest. “I got out because coaching is very demanding and I wanted to be a better husband and father,” McCartney told The Times. “My wife, Lyndi, who has the most advanced case of emphysema, she went to the doctor recently and the doctor told her that she still had several years to live. “We got home that day, and she said to me, ‘I want you to go back to coaching.’ Well, I always wanted to go back into coaching. That just pushed it back into the front burner.” Colorado athletic director Mike Bohn has interviewed former Buff star Eric Bieniemy, but Bieniemy is no longer considered a candidate. A name also getting tossed around is former UCLA head coach Karl Dorrell. Dorrell is a former Colorado offensive coordinator and Denver Broncos wide receiver coach, but some say this would be a secondary as Bohn has already stated he prefers to hire a coach with head coaching experience.

Man’s death at Bears game ruled an accident A stadium official says the death of 23-year-old man who fell from a concourse at Chicago’s Soldier Field during halftime of Sunday’s Bears-Eagles game appears to have been accidental. Soldier Field spokesman Luca Serra said Monday that the man’s death was an “unfortunate accident.” He called it an “isolated incident.” The Cook County medical examiner’s office publicly identified the man yesterday as Stewart Haverty of Woodstock.

Chicago police spokesman John Mirabelli says Haverty’s death doesn’t appear to have been criminal. He didn’t have details on how Haverty came to fall approximately 35 feet onto the roof of a stadium storage area. Haverty was a skilled climber who enjoyed scaling buildings and trees, friends told the Chicago Sun-Times. He would have had to climb or fall over a threefoot high railing and fallen off a ledge of at least two feet. It has been reported


that he purposely jumped over the railing, and friends told the newspaper that he may have been sneaking away to have a cigarette. Police at the scene called his death an accident, the Sun-Times reported. The fire department needed a ladder with a basket to get Haverty off the 15-foot-high building he fell on, according to multiple media reports.

Federer proud of strong 2010 finish World No. 2 beats No.1 at ATP World Tour Finals Roger Federer’s season began with an Australian Open championship and ended with a victory over rival Rafael Nadal for the title at the ATP World Tour Finals in London. Even though he won no major tournaments in between, Federer considers 2010 to have been another great year. “Every time people write me off—or try to write me off—I’m able to bounce back,” Federer said yesterday in a telephone interview with The Associated Press while waiting to board a flight to leave England. The 16-time Grand Slam champion acknowledged that Nadal was “supreme” this year, winning three major titles and returning to the No. 1 ranking.

But Federer also noted that he was pleased to overcome a midseason dip— quarterfinal exits at the French Open and Wimbledon— and finish strongly. Those losses to Robin Soderling at Roland Garros, then Tomas Berdych at the All England Club, came after Federer had reached at least the semifinals at a record 23 consecutive Grand Slam tournaments. Then again, Federer chuckled at the notion that he only played well at very beginning and very end of 2010. “It almost makes it feel or sound like I played horrible through the summer or I didn’t play at all. That’s not the way it was. I grinded it out. I played and I played and I played, and I tried, and I had some really good matches,” he said. “And then I did have some tough losses, and some guys played better than me,

and the next thing you know, half the season is gone. But I really felt like I had some amazing weeks.” The setbacks at the French Open and Wimbledon also brought back the sort of whispers Federer has heard before when he went through brief periods of suddenly not winning everything in sight. He doesn’t let that bother him. He’s used to the way perceptions can change. “I’m not angry. As an athlete … you should be open to criticism, and you’re allowed to be criticized, because not everybody has the same opinion, not everybody likes the same players,” said Federer, who dropped to No. 3 in the rankings after Wimbledon but will end the year at No. 2. “The rankings are quite volatile: Today you’re ‘great,’ tomorrow you’re ‘not,’ but then you’re ‘great’ again. It makes for great stories,” he continued. “Now, I always look at the long term and by doing that, obviously, I can stay calm through the storm. And I think that’s what I’ve been able to do so many times.”

Landis: Clenbuterol use widespread The use of the banned muscle-building and weightloss stimulant that Tour de France champion Alberto Contador tested positive for is widespread in cycling, according to disgraced American cyclist Floyd Landis. Landis, who was stripped of his 2006 Tour title because of doping, told German television on Monday that he knows riders take clenbuterol. “I think that the risk of taking clenbuterol is higher now than it was earlier, when there weren’t any training controls,” Landis said. “There is still the risk of being caught even if it is rather small now, since the product has usually degraded when the control takes place. “You don’t know what risks people will take to win a race.” Contador, who won his third Tour title earlier this year, says his positive test for clenbuterol was the result of eating contaminated meat. He is facing a two-year

ban and being stripped of his victory at an upcoming hearing before the Spanish cycling federation. Landis has previously alleged that Lance Armstrong and members of their former U.S. Postal team systematically doped. A grand jury in Los Angeles has been hearing evidence from an investigation for months in closed sessions. Landis said Monday that cycling’s governing body “protects some people and not others.” “That is the way they manipulate results and create stars,” said Landis, who acknowledged his own doping history when he rode for U.S. Postal and Phonak. “It is easy to take anabolics, whether it is testosterone, growth hormone or something like that; and EPO and to make blood transfusions. You can easily do all of that without getting caught, and we routinely did it.”

The dwindling stream of recyclables, and your water bottle, continue through a perforating machine, holes are poked into the plastic to prevent air bubbles in the bailing process and allow tighter bails. A high-speed belt ride away from the perforating machine is the optical sorter, this machine will direct your plastic bottle out of the stream. The process is done using infrared to detect plastics numbered one and two; air jets are used to blow these two plastics into separate storage bins. While your plastic bottle makes its way to a storage bin, the remainder of the stream goes on. The next step is a final quality control sort, done manually, where items missed in the process are taken out by hand, Masten said less than 1 percent of the materials slip through the process to this point. The final material removed from the stream is aluminum, a spinning magnet in a

drum creates a repulsion field and pushes the aluminum into a shoot leading to a storage bin. Plastics three through seven, and any trash left goes into a bin to be taken to the dump. Masten estimates 15 percent of the co-mingled material received by the recycling center is trash; 15 percent is plastics numbered one and two, tin, aluminum and steel; and 70 percent is glass. Plastics are shipped to California, tin and steel to Illinois, and aluminum to Alabama. Masten said after the economy crashed in 2008, prices dropped so low it was hard to sell materials. “Right now we’re kind of at a low point in the market,” he said. The recycling center has a staff of nine full-time employees; six of them have been working on a temporary basis because the county wasn’t sure what the labor demand for the center would be. The center’s income from sale of recyclable materials and the center’s operational costs are close to being even. “This year we are going to be a little shy of our op-

erational costs,” he said. “But our hope is to be close to a break even point.” The center takes recycling from Glenwood and Pitkin County but doesn’t charge them for the service. Masten explained the center doesn’t charge a tipping fee to those areas or anyone who wants to drop off recyclables because it is a community service. Pitkin County and others who deposit recyclables at the center save the cost of a trip to Denver. “It’s not a revenue-generating deal for the county,” Masten said. “It’s a public service.” Masten encouraged the community to be a part of the recycling process. He said taking a few moments to read the signs and follow the directions makes the process easier. The job was offered to Masten, who was working as an operator at the dump, because he expressed an interest in being a part of the project when the county first discussed the center. Recycling is important to him. “I think recycling is important for the reduction and use of our resources,” Masten said.

BIRDS OF PREY STARTS FRIDAY for World Championships medals later this winter in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany.” Miller, along with Norway’s Aksel Lund Svindal, captured the “full medal jacket” in Whistler, earning the complete collector’s set of gold, silver and bronze medals. Both have also enjoyed considerable success on the Birds of Prey racecourse, with the American recording a trio of victories (2004, 2005 and 2006), while Svindal also owns three wins (2006 and 2008). “It’s great that Bode is back with the U.S. Team,” Imhof said. “You could see in Vancouver that he still really enjoys ski racing and that fact definitely translated into medals. To see Bode and Andrew stand on the podium together in Super-G was a tremendous moment for American skiing.” “Aksel and Birds of Prey is just an all around great story,” added Imhof. “To see him taken off the hill in an ambulance following his horrific training run crash in 2007 and then to come back a year later to win two of the three races is the stuff that movies are made of.” However, the reigning champion of Birds of Prey, Switzerland’s Carlo Janka, who captured all three events in Beaver Creek last winter en route to an Olympic gold medal in Giant Slalom and the overall World Cup title, may be an early season question mark. A virus that curtailed the Swiss star’s summer training in 2009 made an unexpected return this past summer, resulting in a potentially uncertain status for Janka as the season gets underway. Janka’s health is yet another blow to the powerful Swiss program that lost Olympic Downhill champion Didier Defago to a knee injury during training in Zermatt in September. Also currently on the sidelines due to off-season injuries is Olympic Slalom gold medalist Guiliano Rizzoli of Italy, who suffered a broken forearm in a training fall. In addition to Miller, Weibrecht and Svindal, the 2010 Audi Birds of Prey race field is also expected to contain Vancouver medalists that include Croatia’s Ivica Kostelic (silver in Super Combined and Slalom), Switzerland’s Silvan Zurbriggen (bronze in Super Combined), Norway’s Kjetil Jansrud (silver in Giant Slalom) and Sweden’s Andre Myhrer


[From page 1]

(bronze in Slalom). While Miller and Weibrecht have the Olympic hardware, strong American performances may also come from seasoned veterans such as Steven Nyman, Ted Ligety and Marco Sullivan. Nyman owns a pair of Birds of Prey Downhill podium appearances, while Ligety, who captured the World Cup Giant Slalom crown last winter, has just missed the top step of the Beaver Creek podium on two previous occasions. Nyman was also on hand this past June as a Stand Up Paddle competitor at the Teva Mountain Games when the announcement was made that Vail/Beaver Creek had been awarded the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships. “It was great to see Steven’s reaction to the news,” said Imhof. “It was like he had just won Birds of Prey. I think he made the decision right then and there to continue his career through 2015 so that he could race for a World Championships title in Beaver Creek.” Other racers that may well be in the hunt for Birds of Prey bragging rights include Switzerland’s Didier Cuche, Austria’s Benjamin Raich and Mario Scheiber, Canadians Erik Guay and Manuel Osborne-Paradis and Italy’s Werner Heel. The 2010 Audi Birds of Prey World Cup Race Week will also signal the first step on the road to the 2015 FIS World Alpine Ski Championships as organizers begin to put the pieces of the puzzle together to produce the Vail Valley’s third World Alpine Championships in 26 years. For now, however, the dazzling glow in Beaver Creek will come from the Olympic champions of Vancouver as they attempt to tame the Birds of Prey.

We want to share our updated plans for Ever Vail, the proposed sustainable development in West Lionshead, currently under review by the Town of Vail. Ever Vail LLC, an affiliate of Vail Resorts Development Company, has updated its plans and application materials for the Ever Vail re-development project. The revised plans reduce commercial space by more that 30 percent, and also include revisions to the Red Sandstone Creek corridor creating a larger open park-like area through the middle of the nearly 12 acre site.

Why should you buy Custom Metal Work? Reason #2 to Go Custom: Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not an â&#x20AC;&#x153;average consumerâ&#x20AC;?, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re an individual one. When an item is manufactured for the masses, the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marketing department decides which features to include according to their proďŹ le of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;typical consumer.â&#x20AC;? Alternatively, custom made items are made speciďŹ cally for you.
