Tough turn for US at Birds Only 4 of 9 American starters finish yesterday’s World Cup Super G at Beaver Creek, Austria’s Georg Streitberger wins By John O’Neill Mountaineer Contributing Writer

Contrary to George W. Bush’s infamous quote, the U.S. Ski Team proved yesterday that if you are fooled once, you can indeed get fooled again. As the clouds broke over Beaver Creek for the Birds of Prey World Cup Super G discipline, the American squad was far less than superb. With nine Americans slated to take the Super G course, only four finished

with five skiing off the course on or near the same turn. “It’s hard to explain,” said U.S. skier Marco Sullivan. “We needed to let off the throttle and set up but we were making mistakes.” The turn, which came between Russi’s Ride and the Screech Owl jump, did in the big names of American skiing like Sullivan, Bode Miller, Ted Ligety and Andrew Weibrecht. Chris Frank, a NorAm champion last year now skiing on the

World Circuit for the U.S. also made the mistake. The turn created an odd situation for racers, said Travis Ganong - the fifth American racer to start the course and the first to cross the finish line. “It is a hard roll on a right footer over a bump that leads straight into a left footer,” Ganong said. “The coaches gave me some depth and direction that helped, but overall it was an amazing track and the terrain flowed together.”

The crowd roared for each U.S. racer as their determined faces flashed across the megatron set up 2,000 feet below the race start. Fans with painted “Go Ligety” faces held posters praising Sullivan and Miller. To their dismay, the racers ran off the course one after the other and skied straight to the racer-only area, each disappointed with their run. “There was a lot of intensity up top,” Sullivan said. “We are [See TOUGH TURN, page 14]

THE UPDATE Senate showdown may pave way for year-end tax deal

Senate Republicans derailed legislation yesterday to extend expiring tax cuts at all but the highest income levels in a political showdown that paradoxically clears a path for a compromise with the White House on steps to boost the economy. “We need to get this resolved and I’m confident we can do it,” President Barack Obama said shortly after the near party-line votes. The public must have “the peace of mind that their taxes will not go up” on Jan. 1, he added. Obama has signaled that he will bow to Republican demands for extending tax cuts at all income levels, and his remarks capped a day that lurched between political conflict and talk of compromise on an issue that played a leading role in last month’s elections. Sen. Chuck [See THE UPDATE, page 8]

Vonn bounces off ground, somehow hangs on for 2nd Olympic champion and Vail resident Lindsey Vonn made spectacular athletic recovery yesterday to finish second in downhill again at Lake Louise leading a pack of seven Americans into the top 25. Overall leader Maria Riesch of Germany earned back-to-back downhill wins as

Julia Mancuso posted another solid result with sixth in the second World Cup downhill of the weekend in Canada. On a critical left turn midway down the course, Vonn’s skis released from the snow sending her sailing through the air sideways. The three-time World Cup

downhill champion then landed hard on her left hip, immediately bounced up, regained her tuck and continued to charge missing the win by a mere .10 seconds. “I realized I was on my hip and thought I was going into the fence and I just kept [See VONN, page 15]

Veteran, novice volunteers make Birds of Prey happen 500 volunteers make annual World Cup event a success By John O’Neill Mountaineer Contributing Writer From set up to take down, 500 volunteers give their time at the World Cup every year, and not all of them do it for the nice jacket they receive. Many local volunteers have been helping out at the race for more than a decade and praise its presence here in the Vail Valley. “I look forward to event every year,” said Judy Bowman, a volunteer at the event since 1989. “I look forward to working with the same people year after year and also promoting the valley. I’m happy and proud to live in this area and be a part of this event.” Standing next to Bowman at the World Cup was Carol Schimmer, an 18-year volunteer and one of the people that Bowman looks forward to working with every year. “Me and Carol don’t get to work together every day, but at the races we do,” Bowman said. “I think a lot of people do it for that.” Schimmer, after 18 years of volunteering at the event, also praised the races. “How could you miss it?” Schimmer said. “How could you not come? It is the only time the men are on American soil and how can you not welcome them into our home?” Fred Haslee, Jon Schwartz and Rich Seth, all longtime volunteers stand together near the finish area checking press credentials, chatting and socializing with fans. “There is a lot of camaraderie between all of us (volunteers),” Haslee said. “Its great to come back every year.”

With the veteran volunteers come the new, and longto-be volunteers. Emmy young, 18; Rachel Edwards, 18; and Kim Newton, 17 are members of the Battle Mountain High School Ski Team and could be seen handing out awards at yesterdays Super G. The trio is Vail grown plan to continue volunteering at the race in years to come. “Well, we all race for Battle Mountain,” Edwards said. “It’s really cool to come out here and see the pros. I definitely want to keep coming back.” Kim Newton use to race J4’s for Ski and Snowboard Club Vail and, in the past, slipped the racecourse. This year’s task of handing out awards to the racers could be more fun, she said. “I absolutely love it,” Newton said. Chiming in, Young says she enjoys how close they actually get to be to the athletes. “We get to touch them,” she said, with all three laughing. “But really, growing up here it is really cool to get involved in something like this. I hope I can come back.” In addition to the local long-time and newly initiated volunteers, some folks fly and drive in for vacation to volunteer their time on the course. “The race is four days and we have a lot of volunteers,” said Shelley Woodworth, marketing director for the Vail Valley Foundation. “Some of the volunteers come up here for 10-11 days with set up and take down.” Public relations manager for the foundation, Paul Abling, said the volunteers make the event possible. “We really depend on them,” Abling said. “We couldn’t do it without them”

X-Rays, Cleaning value, new & Exam ($300 & existing patients) (Limited time offer)

By John O’Neill At approximately 7:30 p.m. last night the Avon Fire Department was called to Nottingham Lake after a Bobcat Polartrack fell through the ice while removing snow. There were no injuries. The driver, whose name is being withheld, was clearing snow from the popular skating area when he hit a weak spot in the ice about 20 feet from shore. According to Avon Park and Facility Superintendent, Joe Histed, the driver was able to escape the piece of machinery through an open window, get atop the ice and to shore safely. Public skating was set to begin at Nottingham December 18, but that date will be reevaluated to ensure safe ice, said Histed.

Lisa Barbour, 1957 - 2010 Lisa Anne Barbour passed into the loving arms of her Savior on December 2, 2010, surrounded by her beloved family and friends. Lisa had fought a valiant 18-month battle against breast cancer. Born March 26, 1957 in Philadelphia, Penn. to Anne and Jack Townsend, Lisa spent her childhood years in Virginia and North Carolina. Lisa, the eldest of five children, was an avid learner and deeply interested in the world around her. Her zest for learning earned her the honor of Valedictorian at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington in 1979. She went on to pursue her law degree at the University of Virginia, graduating in 1982. Following graduation, Lisa began her law career at Locke Purnell, in Dallas, Tex., where she met her husband, David, and specialized in corporate law and structured finance. In 1998, she retired from the practice of law at the Andrews Kurth law firm to devote her time and energies to her precious boys, Blake and Ben. In 2005, Lisa and David made their permanent home in Beaver Creek, a place they had come to love and enjoy for both the warmth of its people and its natural beauty. In addition to her devotion to her family, Lisa was a dedicated volunteer to numerous causes and charities. While in Dallas, Lisa taught Catechesis at St. Michaels and All Angels Episcopal Church and was very involved with the Child Abuse Prevention Center. Her greatest

commitment during her time in the Vail Valley was to her church, the Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration, and its ministries. She was an active vestry member and Sunday school teacher until her illness was diagnosed in June 2009. Lisa is survived by her husband, David; sons Blake and Ben; stepchildren Baker Barbour of Austin, Texas and Brandy and husband, Bill Morrison and grandchildren, Riley and Will, of Dallas, Texas; mother Anne Townsend of Wilmington, North Carolina; aunt Lynn Jerebek of Dallas, Texas and uncle Paul Blake of Pinehurst, North Carolina; father-in-law Stuart Benson of Austin, Texas; siblings Katherine and husband Peter McKee of Dallas, Texas, nephews Peter and wife Eva, Matthew and Michael; Mark and wife Carol Townsend of Greensboro, North Carolina, nephews Mark Jr. and wife Michele Townsend and great nephew Mark

III and great niece Ashley, and John and nieces Diana and Victoria; Jack and wife Elisa Townsend of Atlanta, Georgia, nieces Lauren and Catherine and nephew Hunter; Charles and wife Lisette Townsend of Copenhagen, Denmark and nephews Oliver and Christopher and niece Emma. Lisa was a strong, energetic, caring person who was always there to listen or help someone in need. She loved her home and gardens, and the constant companionship of her faithful canines, Phinny and Mac. Lisa will be remembered for her faith, her devotion to family and friends, her brilliant mind and quick wit, her kind and gracious spirit, her generosity and her love of life. She had a passion for travel and writing, compiling journals about her experiences in trips around the world. Family gatherings in Bald Head Island, North Carolina and Copenhagen, Denmark were some of her most cherished times. Lisa was also renowned as a consummate hostess, welcoming family and friends, old and new, with warmth and true Southern hospitality into her home. The family sincerely thanks the multitude of friends who showered Lisa and her family with love and support throughout her journey and ultimate victory in Christ. The love they have shown serves as an inspirational reminder of I Corinthians 13: 7-8 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.â&#x20AC;?

For Edwards brewer, growth is the norm Crazy Mtn releases two new beers By Matt Minich Mountaineer Staff Writer

For many business owners in Colorado, 2010 has been closer to the worst of times than the best. Not so for Crazy Mountainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kevin Selvy. Since his brewery poured its first beers at Januaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Big Beers Festival in Vail, Selvy and his fiancĂŠ, Marisa Aguilar, have been working overtime to keep pace with an exploding demand for their breweryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s products, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve opened, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in a continual state of expansion,â&#x20AC;? he said. The Edwards-based brewery first started distributing kegs of their beer to local bars and restaurants in mid-March, and opened its tap room in October. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just recently gotten to the point where I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to sleep here anymore,â&#x20AC;? Selvy said, though he said he and Aguilar are still often working in the brewery from 5 a.m. to as late as 11 p.m. And from the looks of things, that hard work has paid off. Selvy said his business is distributing 5,000 barrels of beer in Eagle and Routt Counties each month, and serving up another 2,500 in their taproom.

Kevin Selvy and Marisa Aguilar, the couple behind the Crazy Mountain Brewery in Edwards. They have been working around the clock to keep pace with demand.

With their company less than a year old, Selvy and Aguilar are already eyeing beer markets outside the valley, and plans to release cans of their flagship Amber Ale to liquor stores, restaurants and bars not only across Colorado, but nationwide. To keep pace with a growing demand, the couple plans to expand their operations to the vacant unit next to theirs, almost doubling their square footage. Within five years, Selvy said he expects Crazy Mountain will need its own building. When he first drafted his business plan, Selvy expected a much slower pace of growth, with the need for a

new location as far as a decade off. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In our third month, we were selling as much as we thought we would in our third year,â&#x20AC;? he said. Selvy got his first taste of brewing working in finance in San Francisco. When a six-pack of his home brews found itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way into the hands of a top brewer at the legendary Anchor Brewing Company, Selvy said he soon found himself face-toface with Anchorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own Frederick â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fritzâ&#x20AC;? Maytag, an industry titan. Offered a part-time, temporary job at the brewery, Selvy took a massive pay cut and made the switch from finance to fermentation. Four years later, he convinced his girlfriend to move to the Vail Valley and set up shop in Edwards. Now, the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brewery has a line-up of six beers, and just released two new flavors, which are available until supply runs out. The first, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Black Bear Stout,â&#x20AC;? is available for the shortest time. A traditional stout in every way, Selvy made only one batch of the beer. The second, called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Horseshoes and Hand Grenades,â&#x20AC;? is much less standard. The winter ale is the product of an unusual blend of Chinook and Amarillo hops, and seven American malts. Deep copper in color, the brew has a heavy hop bitterness with a slightly fruity aftertaste, which Selvy attributes to the presence of the Amarillo hops. The beer will be available in the Crazy Mountain taproom through the winter season.

Groupon spurns Google’s takeover attempt

Google Inc.’s attempt to buy local-coupon site Groupon Inc. appears to have failed for now, according to published reports. Groupon, whose ties to local merchants and some 35 million subscribers worldwide made it a company worth potentially $5 billion to $6 billion to Google, has decided to stay independent for now, according to the Chicago Tribune, The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times, which cited unnamed sources close to the negotiations. The reports say Groupon may pursue an initial public offering of stock. Google declined comment yesterday. Messages by The Associated Press for Groupon representatives were not returned yesterday.

Cities seek to cut strings tying up gas money

Advances in drilling have helped American towns and cities strike natural gas, and just in time, it would appear. With many facing cash crunches, the millions of dollars they’re reaping in royalties could go toward saving public services, jobs and badly needed road projects. Not so fast. Because of restrictions built into deeds and federal grants, municipalities can’t use most of to their newfound wealth to plug budget shortfalls. And so, while elected officials struggle to make ends meet, the money sits there, close enough to smell but just out of reach. “There are street projects we’d like to move forward with, the designs are in place, but because of federal rules we’re not in a position to utilize the funds,” said Kyle Hayes, city manager of Beaumont, Texas, a refinery town that has made millions on gas drilling at the airport. “Right now, it’s just sitting there - $35.3 million.”

Legal process keeps Assange free for now

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange remains free while his website spews daily embarrassment and potential diplomatic damage to the United States, his liberty protected for now by the slowly grinding wheels of the law. Assange, who is now in Britain, according to his British lawyer, is wanted in Sweden to face allegations of sexual offenses against two women, charges he denies, but the United States has not lodged any charges against him. Nor has Britain. In the Swedish case, Assange, an Australian, is the target of a European extradition process which normally takes months to produce an arrest. “It’s just paperwork. It has to go into the Foreign Office, then goes to go to the Home Office, then goes to SOCA (the Serious Organized Crime Agency), then goes to the magistrates’ court,” Karen Todner, a lawyer who has been involved in several high-profile cases, told The Associated Press yesterday.

Afghan minister disputes US diplomatic cable

A leaked diplomatic cable has jeopardized the U.S. ambassador’s relationships with key Afghan ministers at a time when ties between the two nations are strained over corruption at the highest levels of the government and stepped up military operations, a top Afghan official said yesterday. Afghan Finance Minister Omar Zakhilwal, who is well-respected by the international community, vehemently denied that he called President Hamid Karzai “an extremely weak man” as reported in a Feb. 26 cable written by Ambassador Karl Eikenberry. The cable went on to quote Zakhilwal as saying that Karzai “did not listen to facts but was instead easily swayed by anyone who came to him to report even the most bizarre stories of plots against him.”Zakhilwal delivered his blistering remarks against the top U.S. diplomat in Kabul just hours after President Barack Obama’s surprise trip to Afghanistan to bolster troop morale.

The pop superstar met dozens of service members while working on the special “VH1 Divas Salute the Troops” this weekend near San Diego. “There was a kid who I met backstage who was rather chatty, but adorable,” Perry recalled. “He was really sweet. He was 19. He had such a good heart. He said, ‘Yes, ma’am’ to me. ‘Yes ma’am!’ I was like, Katy Perry, left, and Kathy Griffin are ‘O.K.! Yes, sir!’” A VH1 publicist estimated seen onstage at the an audience of 27,000 attend- “Vh1 Divas Salute ed nearly three-hour taping of the Troops” on Frithe concert Friday night at the day, Dec. 3, 2010 in Marine Corps Air Station in San Diego, Calif. AP Miramar. The show, which airs photo. Sunday night, features a bounty of what the network has dubbed “divas” - female or female-lead musical acts, including established stars such as Heart, Paramore and Sugarland, as well as hot newcomers Grace Potter and The Nocturnals, Keri Hilson and Nicki Minaj. But if one diva emerged supreme, it was Perry, who both opened and closed the show, and performed solo or with others on a half-dozen songs -- twice that of anyone else in the lineup.

Obama to sign historic settlement to black farmers

Decades-old claims from African American farmers and native Americans that the government mistreated and swindled them out of billions of dollars can finally be settled starting Wednesday. President Barack Obama is set to sign the bill authorizing payment of $4.6 billion to settle claims that arose in class-action lawsuits. The White House said

the president would sign the Claims Resolution Act of 2010 and make remarks at the ceremony next week, but offered no further details. The House passed the bill on Tuesday. The package would award some $3.4 billion to American Indians for royalties for resources like oil, gas and timber. Another $1.2 billion would go to African American farmers who claim they were unfairly denied federal loans and other assistance.

Polanski, who was awarded the Silver Bear for best director at the Berlin Film Festival, also took five other key prizes at the ceremony held in the Estonian capital, Tallinn, late yesterday. Nominated in seven categories, the movie won the best director prize, best actor for Ewan McGregor, and best screenwriter went jointly to Robert Harris and Polanski.”You have awarded a truly European venture. This is too much ... thank you very much,” Polanski said in an acceptance speech through a Skype connection from an unknown location. “I wish to thank - before anything - this wonderful crew I had, a truly European crew.”

Knee Pain I

f you have ever suffered with chronic pain in the knee, you know how frustrating it can be. After years of running, tennis, cycling, hiking, skiing, kayaking, etc., I have developed pain from no reason or injury. After ice, rest, and not getting better I sought evaluation and treatment. I met an aeronautical engineer/test pilot who went on to become a sports injury specialist. He was developing at the time a new active form of muscular treatment called active release techniques (ART). After a quick evaluation of the region, he was able to see that the muscles of the foot and hip were placing stress on the quadriceps, which was so tight that they were weakened and unable to support the appropriate and balanced tracking of the knee cap. In order to flex the knee, we had to correct all the problems along the kinetic chain


& Soft Tissue Diagnostic Center Dr. Daniel Chesney, DC Dr. Tina Bragg, DC Active Release Technique (ART) Benefit from the same techniques the PGA & NFL use.

of the entire leg. He explained to me that the muscles were overworked and had developed over-use injuries which would not allow them to get stronger. He further explained that these soft tissue injuries could be resolved by ART, then the area could be strengthened without pain. Needless to say it worked!! I have been studying this technique for several years.

Call us today to find out why this treatment is in almost every NFL locker room as well as the PGA, and being used extensively for improved speed of recovery from injury, injury prevention and for performance enhancement by the Olympic teams for the US and Canada.

TOUGH TURN FOR US AT BIRDS on our home course and the only stop in the U.S. With the Downhill cancelation everyone was really fired up to race. We let a lot of people down. Most of the speed guys are done but hopefully the GS crew can still get it done.â&#x20AC;?

Streitberger: I saw it in inspection Getting it done yesterday was Georg Streitberger of Austria. The Austrians set the gates on course for yesterday and Streitberger said in a press conference after the race that he was very prepared to ski fast. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got a good (start) number,â&#x20AC;? Streitberger, who started sixth, said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Come later (in the race) it gets very bumpy.â&#x20AC;? Streitberger said the turn that squashed the American spirit and Georg Streitberger of Austria claimed many racers celebrates victory on the podiwas a crucial point in um at the Birds of Prey World Cup in Beaver Creek yesterhis victory race. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I saw it in inspec- day.

The gates after are really flat so it has to be set up right.â&#x20AC;? In the end it paid off, as Streitberger showered the podium with champagne in victory. Behind him was Adrian Theaux of France by .11 seconds and Cuche Didier of Switzerland by .13 seconds. Finishing for the Americans was Steven Nyman in 25th, Travis Ganong in 31st, Erik Fisher in 40th and Tommy Ford in 49th place. Swedish local Skiing for Sweden but a local Edwards resident, Patrik Jaerbyn was an additional crowd favorite upon announcement. As the oldest racer in the lineup at 41 years of age, Jaerbyn said he felt right at home but was disappointed by a 28th place finish. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the volunteers and course workers did an amazing job,â&#x20AC;? Jaerbyn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is one of the best world cup stops. It is a fast hard hill and really deep field.â&#x20AC;?

To eliminate all distractions before the race, Jaerbyn opted for a hotel over his house just down the road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You never know what can happen at home,â&#x20AC;?

and the downhill cancelled yesterday, the Americans are sitting low in the overall World Cup standings. Bode Miller leads the Americans in 18th, followed by Ligety in 39th, Ganong in 52nd and Nyman in 60th. Nymanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 25th-place finish in yesterdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Super G did provide some good news on the day, as his solid placement within the 69-member field effectively boosted the U.S. Ski Teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World Cup quota spots in the discipline to 10. Meanwhile 25th also happens to be where Jaerbyn currently sits in the overall standings. GS today featuring local SSCV skier The U.S. Ski Team will refocus their efforts for today with sights set on redemption in giant slalom. Ligety, the defending World Cup giant slalom champion, hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t finished outside the top five in the last four years of racing GS in Beaver Creek, including two podium finishes, the U.S. Ski Team wrote in a press release issued last night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ted Ligety and Bode skied the top very aggressive â&#x20AC;&#x201C; fantastic skiing,â&#x20AC;? Head Coach Sasha Rearick was quoted saying in the release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to seeing those two guy put it down tomorrow in the GS.â&#x20AC;? In addition to Ligety and Miller, todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s GS will also feature Will Gregorak making his second career World Cup start. The 20-year-old Ski and Snowboard Club Vail skier is currently enjoying his rookie season with the U.S. Ski Team after being named to the squadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s C Team earlier this year.

VONNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S AMAZING RECOVERY thinking â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;get back up, get back up, get back up,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Vonn, who attributed the save to her rigorous off season conditioning program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Somehow I caught my edge and was able to stand back up. Once I was on my feet again I just kept thinking â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;make up time.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? The race is now available for on-demand streaming on Universal Sports, including a highlight clip of the Vonnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incredible recovery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She had probably one of the most amazing recoveries in the history of ski racing,â&#x20AC;? said speed Head Coach Chip White. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was completely laid out onto her side coming into Fall Away, skipped through the air and was able to get back to her feet. Honestly I thought she was in the fence. Ninety nine percent of all racers would have been in the fence, but the athleticism of Lindsey was phenomenal. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unbelievable that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the top 20, much less second.â&#x20AC;? Mancuso continued to show sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a contender landing in the top 10 in her last three World Cup downhill races.


[From page 1]

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Julia skied brilliantly,â&#x20AC;? added White. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She skied so clean and so tough. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pleased with her performace over the last few days. Normally this is not her hill and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s making something out of it and proving that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the game.â&#x20AC;? Chelsea Marshall was 14th with Alice McKennis of Glenwood Springs and Leanne Smith tying for 15th followed by Laurenne Ross in 19th and Stacey Cook in 25th. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These top 15s with Chelsea, Alice and Leanne were fantastic,â&#x20AC;? said White. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re elated with the performance of the entire team. This was probably the slickest conditions weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen on a womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World Cup downhill. It was very, very challenging and these girls did a fantastic job of sticking their nose in and making something out of a very difficult situation.â&#x20AC;?
