Downed plane found near Edwards, 2 dead

Although unconfirmed, pilot believed to be Barton Harris of Brownwood, Texas Authorities say two people have been found dead in the wreckage of a small plane that went missing over Eagle County Wednesday. A National Guard helicopter crew located the wreckage at about 7:15 a.m. yesterday morning, about 3 1/2 miles north of Edwards. Eagle County Coroner Kara Bettis confirmed two people were onboard the aircraft; both were killed in the crash.


The plane is a Beech 60 Duke twin engine, registered to Barton Harris of Brownwood, Texas. The identity of the pilot and the passenger are still unconfirmed, but, citing a “family friend,” reported yesterday that the 67-year-old Harris was onboard with 73-year-old Jerry Hoggatt of Pelham, Ala. The Harris family had no comment. Despite the report, Bettis says the identification of the victims will have to

be completed through fingerprint matching or dental records, which could take several days. The aircraft lost radar contact at about 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday. Emergency responders worked through the night searching an area surrounding the last place a signal was received. Rescue crews arrived at the site of the crash, about 3.5 miles north of Edwards, at approximately 10:20 a.m. yesterday morn-

No jail time mandated in hit and run case


A small drop in unemployment claims and a higher profit forecast by FedEx helped push stocks to two-year highs yesterday. The Dow Jones industrial average closed up 41.78 at 11,499.25. The Nasdaq closed at 2637.31 up 20.09, and the S&P 500 closed up 7.64 at 1242.87.

Hybrids won’t go quietly

Silent hybrid vehicles may soon be a thing of the past. Auto safety regulators would have to set minimum sound levels for hybrid and electric vehicles under a bill approved yesterday by the House.

A look at where the $30 million is going Commissioners tour new justice center By Chris Hoff Mountaineer Contributing Writer

VAIL VALLEY MEDICAL CENTER ANNUAL FAMILY DINNER DANCE To benefit the Emergency Department For 30 years, VVMC has celebrated the holidays with the Vail Valley community

Please join us for our Pearl Anniversary Event An evening of elegant dining, dancing and children’s entertainment December 28, 2010 5:30pm Vail Marriott Mountain Resort and Spa Vail, Colorado TICKETS Adults $200 15 and under $65 For reservations or sponsorship opportunities call 970-477-5177 or email Presenting Sponsor

The remodel of the justice center in Eagle was a $24 million project, which will come to millions more after interest. Half of the $24 million went to construction of a new court room and offices, the remainder went to the new jail expansion and general upgrades. After months of under utilization, the new $8 million jail wing is partially shut down for the time being, county officials recently confirmed. On Tuesday county commissioners Peter Runyan, Jon Stavney, Sara Fisher and a small group of visitors were given a tour of the facility by Jail Administrator Bill Kaufman. The tour started in the new and bigger office space used by the sheriff’s department, and a look at the new victims’ services office. In the past, victims would have to either wait in the hall, potentially with the defendant, or wait in an unsecured office. The new office space is a secured space, meaning victims waiting won’t have access to potential dangerous items like scissors. Previously, when victims waited in the unsecured office space, they would have to be checked for items they could use as a weapon against the defendant before going into the courtroom. There’s plenty of space in the new office, some of which is not being used. Commissioner Stavney chalks this up to planning for the future. “You don’t build public facilities for the two year market,” Stavney said. To pay for the expansion, the county came up with a $5 million down payment, while the remainder of the loan will be paid for by a lease/purchase financing package called certificates of participation, or COPs, which Colorado law allows to pay for open space, golf courses, parks, equipment, courthouses and jails. The county sells the certificates of participation to investors, who will

own the facility while the county makes the annual lease payments covering principal and interest. Lease purchases like this are not treated as debt, and are therefore not subject to Colorado’s Tax Payer Bill of Rights, or TABOR requirements, which say counties have to receive voter approval to take on new debt. COPs don’t need voter approval because it’s not a multi-year financial obligation, according to an analysis by the National Association of Counties. The county makes annual lease payments; it does not create a multi-year debt and does not require voter approval, according to Eagle County Attorney Bryan Treu. Tuesday’s tour took visitors to the sheriff’s office, which is next to a nowempty undersheriff’s office. The tour was stalled while keys were found, Stavney took a moment to explore an adjacent conference room and slip through a door on the other side. When the office door was unlocked to a large office filled with light, Stavney was waiting comfortably in one of the office chairs. Down the hall, the new probation department has the benefits of being larger and closer to the courts and jail. Probation officer Mary Toth welcomes the change, she called it a great space. Behind the court rooms is the office for County Judge Katharine Sullivan. She is responsible for 6,000 court cases held in Eagle, and between 700 and 800 cases in El Jebel every year. Inside the new courtroom, the public viewing area is smaller and the lawyers’ area is larger. At the rear of the new courtroom is a media room, which Kaufman called the “Kobe” room. It is set up with a table and chairs, it also has a window for video recording of trials. From the court room, the tour crossed the hall and entered the detention center, making a first stop in the control room. There one busy man monitors 80 cameras covering the whole justice center on four different monitors. He also operates [See JUSTICE CENTER, page 23]

No jail time required for Erzinger New Winter NEWS

Judge accepts misdemeanor plea in hit and run case By Matt Minich Mountaineer Staff Writer Martin Erzinger, the Arrowhead homeowner who struck a cyclist with his Mercedes in July and then drove off, will not have to spend a night in jail if he doesn’t want to. Erzinger plead guilty last night to the misdemeanor traffic charges of leaving the scene of an accident and careless driving. The plea deal itself, which Fifth Judicial District Judge Frederick Gannett approved last night, has been the subject of national media attention since October. Under the deal, which was drafted by District Attorney Mark Hurlbert, ERZINGER Erzinger would dodge felony charges, which Hurlbert said would likely cost him his job and affect his ability to pay restitution. Erzinger works as a wealth manager for Morgan Stanley. The victim, Dr. Stephen Milo, had always opposed

the plea deal, and traveled all the way from his home in New York City to speak out against the deal with his attorney last night. In his speech to Judge Frederick, Milo listed off his injuries, the extent of which he said had still not been fully tallied. Milo said he still had tingling and numbness in his left hand, constant knee pain and occasional headaches. Months after the accident, he has grown a beard over the scars on his face, but they were still visible at last night’s hearing. “I’ve been an athlete my whole life,” he said. “I haven’t been able to do anything athletic since (the accident).” The collision itself was understandable, Milo said, but he said he could not tolerate Erzinger’s leaving the scene, and said he was angered by the various explanations offered by Erzinger and his attorneys. The defense has argued that Erzinger’s sleep apnea, which was diagnosed after the incident, could have been a cause of the crash, and has also claimed that the Mercedes’s new car smell could have put him to sleep.

Cascade makes Travel + Leisure’s coveted ‘Top 500 Hotels In The World’ list Vail Cascade Resort General Manager Brett Schoenfield is thrilled to announce that the property has been placed on Travel + Leisure’s “Top 500 Hotels in the World” list. The recent announcement is the latest in a long list of prestigious designations the AAA Four Diamond ski-in/ ski-out resort has received. Vail Cascade has also won positions on Travel + Leisure’s “Top Family Hotels”, Conde Nast Traveler’s “Top 50”, Wine Spectator’s “Award of Excellence” and several other recognitions of excellence Travel + Leisure readers vote for hotels that they feel are far above par of the majority of options worldwide, and once per year the publication releases a list of the properties they voted as the very best SCHOENFIELD overall. “I am honored that our guests have recognized the efforts put forth to ensure the comfort and overall positive experience they encounter at Vail Cascade,” Schoenfield said. “I am extremely proud of our team and the work that has been done to ensure memorable experiences for our guests. To be on this list is true mark of distinction, and receiving this recognition means reaching a pinnacle of success.” Cascade completed a $30 million dollar renovation in 2009, and rededicated efforts to focus on guest service and employee satisfaction. Schoenfield feels that the efforts were an integral influence in all of the recent awards, and that the latest announcement designating Vail Cascade as one of Travel + Leisure’s “Best in the World” gives the resort the recognition he feels it has earned. “Being on this highly acclaimed list means a confirmation of the strength of our team: the decisions made, the energy expended and the satisfaction of earning the title of an elite property,” he said. “The announcement that Vail Cascade is one of the very best hotels in the world

is an honor, and reflects the integrity and efforts of the entire team.” Cascade’s assignment to the “Top 500 Hotels in the World” by Travel + Leisure also includes the property’s award-winning restaurant, Atwater on Gore Creek. Atwater recently debuted a new Chef’s Tasting Menu; a choice of either three or four courses of inspired menu options focusing on locally sourced produce and meats, and food items procured from businesses that utilize sustainable food principals. The property has also introduced specialty desserts and pastries created by the property’s new executive pastry chef, available not only in the restaurant outlets, but also by custom order for off-property delivery. Aria Club & Spa, Vail Cascade’s 78,000 square foot showpiece of fitness and wellness contributes to the designation of being on many of the “world’s best” lists via signature programs such as ski conditioning “boot camps”, a myriad of yoga and Pilates programs, cutting edge training equipment and fitness professionals. With a year round focus on familyfriendliness and activities, Vail Cascade Resort is Vail’s only AAA Four Diamond ski-in/ski-out property with a Vail Mountain chairlift located directly outside of the Terrace Wing of the hotel. Guests can enjoy a wrapped to-go breakfast and be on the ski slopes as soon as the chairlift opens, making it one of the easiest ways to access the world famous ski resort. Skier’s buffet lunches are served in Atwater, maximizing “play time” for visitors, and a warm and inviting environment welcomes guests in the Fireside Lounge in the afternoons and evenings. Groups and special events are accommodated with the expertise of on-site destination meeting coordinators. The property features more than 30,000 square feet of dedicated large meeting spaces, exhibit halls, conference rooms and indoor and outdoor pavilions. Cascade was one of nine hotels in Colorado made the distinguished list of “Top 500 Hotels in the World” this year.

Moore not guilty on all counts Sex assault suspect cleared by jury By Matt Minich Mountaineer Staff Writer Statements by his alleged victim to several different people weren’t enough for a jury to convict Gypsum resident Owen Moore of sexual assault on a child and aggravated incest yesterday. The members of the jury spent all week at the Eagle County Courthouse, working to make a decision on Moore’s guilt or innocence. Tuesday and Wednesday, they heard testimony from more than a dozen witnesses, including the 4-year-old victim. Moore’s name first appeared in the Mountaineer in August, when it was discovered that the District Attorney’s office failed to arrest him before issuing a court summons, which is out of compliance with Colorado law. District Attorney Mark Hurlbert conceded to the Mountaineer at that time that not arresting Moore had been his offices’ mistake. Moore was charged with sexually abusing his victim on two separate occasions – once on a camping trip during Labor Day weekend 2009 and again in his household hot tub Dec. 17, 2009. In their case against Moore, As-

sistant District Attorney Chris Turner and Deputy District Attorney Steve Mallory relied heavily on statements made by the victim to her mother, family friends and a social worker. They also brought a pediatrician, a criminologist and a nurse trained in examining sexual assault cases. None of those witnesses could provide evidence that proved or disproved Moore assaulted the child, which Turner acknowledged during his closing remarks yesterday morning. “Really there’s no physical evidence in this case,” Turner said. Bringing the experts to testify, though, proved that the District Attorney’s office had nothing to hide, he said. Turner also acknowledged the disappointing testimony of the victim, who did not make any statements in the courtroom that Moore abused her, and even answered “no” to direct questions about abuse. In his opening statements Tuesday, Turner prepared for this possibility by saying that they didn’t know what to expect from the victim’s testimony. Moore’s attorney, Burt Levin, seized on this very weakness in his closing statements.



cut & color ?Vb^Z =^\]a^\]ih &*bdgZ Rootz

“If you convict (Moore),” he said, “you fail to give effect to what she said on the stand.” Levin’s closing statements focused largely on discrediting Jenny Moore, the victim’s mother and Moore’s ex-wife. He referenced three e-mails sent by Jenny Moore, two to the defendant and one to his parents, which reference the abuse and assert that Moore was abused as a child. Levin asserted that the emails proved that Jenny Moore had “lost it,” and said she used her daughter to “manufacture a criminal case against her husband.” Instead of going to the authorities when she first discovered what she thought were signs of abuse, he said, she should of contacted Moore to investigate herself. “I think there’s a family protocol,” he said. In a rebuttal, Mallory told the jury that Jenny Moore had not gone directly to the authorities, but had instead taken her daughter to a pediatrician, who then in turn reported the allegations of abuse to the Eagle County Sheriff’s Department. Moore has not had contact with his children outside of about 35 hours of supervised visits since the alleged Dec. 17, 2009, incident. His divorce with Jenny Moore is now final, but custody can be revisited.

“We’re a rock band that jams,� says guitarist/vocalist Peter Frey. “It’s a head-bobbing, toe-tapping, bodygroovin’ kinda thing where you’ll hear a melodic blend of funky jazz, rootsy bluegrass, and even elements of classical.� The band’s roots stretch back to when Jed Anderson, Peter Frey, and Danny Vitali met during their freshman year at St.John’s University. Founded on a creative relationship and a passion for music, the band has been years in the making. Hailing from the Land of 10,000 Lakes, Jed, Peter, and Danny explored their talent as the rhythm section for numerous music projects throughout their college days in Minnesota. In 2008, the nameless trio was Austin bound in an effort to hone their sound. “Music is therapy,� says bassist/vocalist Danny Vitali. “It’s a way of life.� After long hours practicing, performing in back yards, and perfecting their craft, a band named Kazyak was born. Jed, Peter, and Danny built their first album layer by layer in the undisturbed seclusion of their Austin home studio. “The album making process was extremely challenging,� says drummer/vocalist Jed Anderson. “It definitely pushed the limits, but in the end we found our sound.�

Bird-watchers at a ridgetop preserve in eastern Pennsylvania counted a record number of migrating bald eagles this fall, another sign of the species’ remarkable comeback following a century of decline. The huge flight of 407 eagles smashed the old record of 245 set two years ago at Hawk Mountain Sanctuary, which has kept an annual tally of migrating hawks, eagles and falcons since its founding 76 years ago as the world’s first refuge for birds of prey. As the autumn raptor count at Hawk Mountain drew to a close Wednesday, sanctuary biologists and birding enthusiasts alike cheered what Keith Bildstein, the sanctuary’s director of conservation science, recently called “possibly the greatest wildlife success story of our time.” The U.S. population of bald eagles suffered a steep decline between the 1870s and 1970s, first due to habitat destruction and hunting, and later because of the widespread use of DDT.

Reid gives up on nearly $1.3T spending bill

Democrats controlling the Senate abandoned yes-

terday a huge catchall spending measure combining nearly $1.3 trillion worth of unfinished budget work, including another $158 billion for military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. The 1,924-page bill collapsed of its own weight after an outcry from conservatives who complained it was stuffed with more than $8 billion in homestate pet projects known as earmarks and wrapped together 12 bills into a single foot-tall piece of legislation that Democrats had hoped to pass with just a couple of days’ worth of debate. Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., gave up on the bill after several Republicans who had been thinking of voting for it pulled back their support. GOP leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky threw his weight against the bill in recent days, saying it was “unbelievable” that Democrats would try to muscle through in the days before Christmas legislation that usually takes months to debate.The turn of events was a major victory for earmark opponents like Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Tom Coburn, R-Okla., who for years have been steamrolled by the old-school members of the powerful Senate Appropriations Committee.

Stuxnet virus could attack US

Stuxnet, a computer worm that hit and may have severely damaged Iranian nuclear facilities, is the type of cyberweapon that could broadly harm the United States, undermining both society and government ability to defend the nation, says a strongly worded report to Congress. A successful broad-based attack on the US, using new variants of the Stuxnet weapon, could do enough wide-

If retooled slightly, Stuxnet could be directed to target a wide swath of critical infrastructure facilities, rather than a narrow target such as Iran’s nuclear fuel-enrichment facilities and nuclear power plant, the eight-page CRS synopsis warns, quoting researchers and other analysts.

DADT may have 60 votes

The San Francisco Chronicle is reporting supporters of repealing the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell ban on gays and lesbians in the military now have more than the 60 votes they need to pass the repeal. Three Republicans are needed to break a filibuster by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and four Republicans have now made firm commitments to vote yes if a standalone repeal comes to the floor. Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Scott Brown of Massachusetts have both said they are on board, joining Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine. That’s one more than needed. Other Republicans such as Richard Lugar of Indiana are considered possible yes votes as well, and a conservative Senator-elect, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, has now said he supports repeal as well. Toomey can’t vote yet, but he is a leading conservative voice. Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., said it’s now squarely up to Senate majority lead-

WikiLeaker out on bail

The once-elusive Julian Assange was freed on bail yesterday, releasing the WikiLeaks founder to continue his work as Sweden pushes its case for extradition and the United States considers its own criminal charges over his website’s release of secret information. The silver-haired Australian emerged from London’s neo-Gothic High Court building after a tense scramble to gather the money and signatures needed to free him. Speaking under a light snowfall amid a barrage of flash bulbs, Assange - who’s been out of the public eye for more than a month - told supporters he would pursue his efforts to bring government secrets to light. “It’s great to smell the fresh air of London again,” he said to cheers from outside the court. “I hope to continue my work.”Assange is now headed to Ellingham Hall, a 10-bedroom mansion about 120 miles (195 kilometers) northeast of central London that belongs to Vaughan Smith, a WikiLeaks supporter and founder of London’s Frontline Club for journalists.

20 states fighting health care bill

Attorneys for 20 states fighting the new federal health care law told a judge yesterday it will expand the government’s powers in dangerous and unintended ways. The states want U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson to issue a summary judgment throwing out the health care law without a full trial. They argue it violates people’s rights by forcing them to buy health insurance by 2014 or face penalties. “The act would leave more constitutional damage in its wake than any other statute in our history,� David Rivkin, an attorney for the states, told Vinson. President Barack Obama’s administration counters that Americans should not be allowed to opt out of the overhaul because everyone requires medical care. Government attorneys say the states do not have standing to challenge the law and want the case dismissed.Vinson, who was appointed to the bench almost 30 years ago by President Ronald Rea-

Obama says Afghanistan on track

Declaring significant progress in disrupting al-Qaida and combatting the Taliban, President Barack Obama said yesterday the United States will start withdrawing U.S. troops from Afghanistan in July as promised. He still warned of sobering days, saying the war would remain a “very difficult endeavor.� Assessing the war one year after he ordered a major increase in troops, Obama said the goal is not to defeat every threat to Afghanistan’s security or to build up the nation. Rather, he said, the United States continues to shed blood in the fight - now in its 10th year - to dismantle the al-Qaida network and push back the Taliban. “We are on track to achieve our goals,� Obama said from the White House.Yet he added that progress has not come fast enough in neighboring Pakistan, where terrorists continue to find safe haven. And the president warned that the gains over the past year - which have come at the cost of more U.S. troop deaths than at any previous time during the war - are fragile and reversible.

Mexico says more than 30,000 people have been killed in drug violence since President Felipe Calderon launched a crackdown against cartels in 2006. Attorney General Arturo Chavez Chavez says that about 12,500 people were killed between January and November compared to 9,600 for all of 2009. He spoke to reporters yesterday. The most recent official toll of the drug war dead came in August, when the intelligence agency director said 28,000 had died.

Santa might think twice about this request

Michael Vick is barred from owning a dog for a year and a half, but the star quarterbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comment that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to bring one into his house generated renewed outrage â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and support. The convicted dogfighting ring operator told the news site that he genuinely cares about animals and would like to have one for a pet again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it would be a big step for me in the rehabilitation process,â&#x20AC;? he said. Vick has made similar statements before, but this time it seemed to have grabbed the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attention.

European Court criticizes Irish law

Irelandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s constitutional ban on abortion violates pregnant womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right to receive proper medical care in life-threatening cases, the European Court of Human Rights ruled yesterday, harshly criticizing Irelandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long inaction on the issue. The Strasbourg, France-based court ruled that a pregnant woman fighting cancer should have been allowed to get an abortion in Ireland in 2005 rather than being forced to go to England for the procedure. The judgment put Ireland under pressure to draft a law extending abortion rights to women whose pregnancies represent a potentially fatal threat to their own health. Ireland has resisted doing that despite a 1992 judgment from the Irish Supreme Court that said Ireland should provide abortions in cases where a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life is endangered - including, controversially, by her own threats to commit suicide. The 18-year delay has created a legal limbo, forcing many women to travel overseas for an abortion rather than rely on Irish doctors fearful of being prosecuted.

dropped to the lowest level in 18 months in November, the result of foreclosure freezes enacted by several banks following allegations that evictions were handled improperly. Home repossessions dropped 28 percent from October and 12 percent from November last year, foreclosure listing firm RealtyTrac Inc. said yesterday.The 67,428 homes lenders took back last month were the fewest since May 2009. But even with the decline, it was enough to push the total number of repossessions so far this year to more than 980,000 the highest annual tally of properties lost to foreclosure on RealtyTrac’s records dating back to 2005.

Food prices up sharply

Wholesale prices outside the volatile food and energy categories rose modestly last month due to a large increase in the cost of new cars. But there was little sign of inflation in the report, which showed that the weak economy is keeping prices in check. The Labor Department said Tuesday that the Producer Price Index, which measures price changes before they reach the consumer, rose by 0.8 percent in November. That’s the biggest rise in 8 months. But most of that rise was driven by a sharp increase in energy prices, particularly a 4.7 percent rise in the cost of gasoline.Food prices rose by 1 percent, led by a 13.6 percent increase in the cost of fresh fruit and melons. Egg prices jumped by 22.7 percent. Some of those increases could start to show up on grocery store shelves, but many food companies will simply absorb the higher costs, economists said.

Cap-and-trade on schedule in Calif

California air quality regulators are poised to adopt the nation’s most sweeping regulations to give power plants, refineries and other major polluters a financial incentive to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. The Air Resources Board was expected to pass this key piece of the California’s 2006 climate law, called AB32, at its meetings yesterday or today, with the hope that other states and nations will follow the lead of the world’s eighth largest economy. “AB32 was passed primarily to fill the vacuum created by the failure of Congress to pass any kind of climate or energy legislation for many years now,” said Mary Nichols, the air board’s chairwoman. “The goal was to lead by example, and being a leader you have to bring

Weekly claims for jobless aid dipped by 3,000 to a seasonally adjusted 420,000 in the week ending Dec. 11, the Labor Department said yesterday. The four-week average of claims, a less-volatile measure, fell for the sixth straight week to 422,750. That’s the lowest level since August 2008, just before the financial crisis intensified with the collapse of Lehman Brothers.

CNN 2012 poll

CNN is reporting a new poll indicates that Obama leads the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee by 22 points. According to an NBC/Wall Street Journal surveyreleased Wednesday, 55 percent say they would back Obama in a possible 2012 showdown, with 33 percent saying they would support Palin. Obama’s advantage over Palin in the poll is larger than in other recent surveys. The president was up 12 points over Palin in a hypothetical 2012 matchup poll by McClatchy-Marist conducted earlier this month, and he led Palin by eight points in surveys from CNN/Opinion Research Corporation and from Quinnipiac University that were conducted last month, according to CNN.

Blessed with a right arm that earned the Iowa farmboy the nickname “Rapid Robert” and made him one of the greatest pitchers in baseball history, Feller, who left baseball in the prime of his career to fight for his country, died Wednesday night. He was 92. Feller, who won 266 games in 18 seasons - all with the Indians - died at 9:15 p.m. on Wednesday night of acute leukemia at a hospice, said Bob DiBiasio, the Indians vice president of public relations.Remarkably fit until late in life, Feller had suffered serious health setbacks in recent months.

Edwards died from complications of pneumonia late Wednesday at St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, said publicist Gene Schwam. Blake’s wife, Julie Andrews, and other family members were at his side. He had been hospitalized for about two weeks. “He was the most unique man I have ever known-and he was my mate,” Andrews said in a statement yesterday. “He will be missed beyond words, and will forever be in my heart.”Edwards had knee problems, had undergone unsuccessful procedures and was “pretty much confined to a wheelchair for the last year-and-a-half or two,” Schwam said. That may have contributed to his condition, he added.

Courts to release one document in Cox case A judge has ordered court officials to release one document in the sexual assault case against Denver Broncos cornerback Perrish Cox but says a second one must remain sealed for now. Douglas County Judge Susanna Meissner-Cutler on Thursday ordered the release of the complaint prosecutors filed against Cox. Complaints usually include basic information including the defendant’s name and the charges, but few details.

The judge says an affidavit used to obtain the arrest warrant should remain sealed because the case is still under investigation. The affidavit often includes more details of the alleged crime. Cox was arrested Dec. 9 on sexual assault charges. He is free on $50,000 bail. If convicted, he faces a sentence of two years to life in prison.

With Orton sore, Tebow takes more snaps Tim Tebow is getting more snaps at practice with starter Kyle Orton nursing bruised ribs and the rookie might even get his first extended action of the season when the Denver Broncos visit Oakland this weekend. Orton sat out practice Wednesday and interim coach Eric Studesville met with quarterbacks coach Ben McDaniels to determine how much, if any, he’ll be able to participate in Thursday’s practice. In his absence, Tebow has been taking the bulk of the snaps with third quarterback Brady Quinn getting some work, too. Tebow, whom former coach Josh McDaniels se-

lected in the first round of the draft, has made only cameo appearances this season and thrown just one pass so far, a 3-yard TD toss to Spencer Larsen against Kansas City on Oct. 14. RIGHT: This photo taken last weekend shows Tim Tebow during the fist quarter of a game against the Arizona Cardinals in Glendale, Ariz. Denver Broncos interim coach Eric Studesville said Monday he’s sticking with slumping quarterback Kyle Orton as his starter. The Broncos (3-10) are heading for what could be their worst season since 1964. AP Photo.

BCS director dismisses Cuban’s bankroll plan BCS executive director Bill Hancock isn’t worried that “financial inducements,” such as the one Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is considering, will lead to a major college football playoff. Cuban told on Wednesday that he was “actively interested but in the exploratory stage” of trying to bankroll a 12or 16-team playoff to replace the controversial Bowl Championship Series. Hancock responded to Cuban’s comments in an e-mail to the AP on Thursday, saying, “Given how much support our current system has among university presidents, athletics directors, coaches and athletes, I don’t think any amount of financial inducement will make people abandon” the BCS. Cuban, who has made unsuccessful attempts to buy the Chicago Cubs and Texas Rangers in recent

years, said he’s spoken to two athletic directors from conferences with automatic BCS bids who were enthusiastic about his idea. He intends to contact several school

presidents and state senators to determine whether the idea is worth pursuing. “Put $500 million in the bank and go to all the schools and pay them money as an option,” Cuban said. “Say, ‘Look, I’m going to give you X amount every five years. In exchange, you say if you’re picked for the playoff system, you’ll go.”’ The BCS, using polls and computer rankings, matches the top two teams in the country after the regular season in a national title game. No. 1 Auburn and No. 2 Oregon meet on Jan. 10 in Glendale, Ariz. The BCS is wildly unpopular among fans, but the leadership of the six most powerful conferences—the Big Ten, Big East, Big 12, ACC, SEC and Pac-10— support it and the bowl system, making any radical changes in the near future highly unlikely.

Rockies acquire catcher Jose Morales from Twins The Colorado Rockies have acquired catcher Jose Morales from Minnesota, sending minor league pitcher Paul Bargas to the Twins. Morales hit .194 with seven RBIs in 19 games with the Twins last season. The 27-year-old has a .297 bat-

ting average in three seasons. The Rockies are searching for a reliable backup for Chris Iannetta after trading Miguel Olivo in the offseason. The team also has Michael McKenry, Jordan Pacheco and Wilin Rosario on the active roster.

Bargas, a 22-year-old lefty, was 5-4 with a 3.59 ERA and five saves in 58 appearances for Single-A Asheville last year. He was picked by Colorado in the 13th round in 2009 out of the University of California-Riverside.

White progresses from torn Achilles’ tendon Broncos running back LenDale White has shed the protective boot and cumbersome crutches, wandering around the locker room Thursday with only the slightest of limps. White is steadily recovering from a surgically repaired right Achilles’ tendon that he tore in Denver’s preseason finale at Minnesota on Sept 2. For now, it’s all about the stationary bike, logging numerous miles in exhaustive rehab sessions. In another few weeks, though, he will be cleared to run again. “Everything is coming along right on time,” White said. “I’m getting healthy.” Physically, yes. Mentally, White realizes he still needs work, the image of the injury and the long road back still fresh in his mind. “Probably never feel like myself again, because I know it’s there,” said White, who turns 26 on Monday. “Once you have an injury or know something’s there, you always think about it. “But I never play scared, so it’s not going to be like a scary thing where I’m out there worrying about it.” White was brought into training camp last summer to bolster a banged-up backfield, but an ankle sprain two

days after his arrival hampered him. Still, he figured to be a force near the goal line this season for the Broncos, once he returned from his fourgame suspension for violating the league’s substanceabuse policy. And then he tore his Achilles’ tendon, an injury that many tailbacks have struggled to come back from. Can White make this team next season? “My play will do the talking — the way I work, the way I condition, the way I handle myself around here,” said White, who insisted he’s only put on three pounds since the injury. “I know that I was going to have a big part on this team before I got injured. I don’t feel like that’s going to be any different next year.” A hometown kid, White was attempting to put things back on track with the Broncos after a fallout in Tennessee and a brief stop in Seattle. His time dedicated to rehab has given him an opportunity to reflect back on his career. “I’m in a great place with myself,” said White, who scored 57 TDs while at Southern Cal. “I’m definitely comfortable and feel great about the future about my life and things look positive.”

John Lewis, finance director for Eagle County, shows off his antique skis. He keeps these in his office because his wife Kathy limits the number he is allowed in his “man cave.” The red skis on the left are racing skis from the 1940s, the skis on the wall are made out of oak and are from the late 1800s – they have bamboo ski poles. The dark ski in his left hand are 1934 skis from a Macy’s display. Before he was married, Lewis said his home resembled a ski lodge, full of historical ski items. When he moved to Vail Valley with his wife, she informed him her house wasn’t going to be a ski lodge. He has managed to hold on to over 50 pairs of antique skis, eight of those he is allowed to keep in his “man cave.”

Later in the evening, Erzingerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney, Richard Tegtmeier, had Dr. Ronald Kramer, a neurologist who specializes in sleep studies, testify that sleep apnea, a condition that interrupts breathing during sleep, had further mental effects that could explain Erzingerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actions after the collision. After colliding with Milo, Erzinger stopped the car while off the road, then drove through two roundabouts to a gas station near the old Pizza Hut building in Avon, where he then called a tow truck to have his car fixed. Milo also played an audio recording a phone call, on which Hurlbert is heard to say that he decided to make the plea deal after he received a phone call from employment attorneys who informed him that a felony charge would likely lose Erzinger his job. Miloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney, Harold Haddon, said the reasons for the agreement were inherently flawed. Hurlbert made the agreement so Erzinger would be able to pay restitution, but Haddon said the misdemeanor charges he plead guilty to do not require criminal restitution be paid at all. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simply, simply wrong,â&#x20AC;? Haddon said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I use that word, frankly, as an understatement.â&#x20AC;? Several people spoke in support of leniency for Erzinger, mostly friends who generally spoke to his good character and his own love for cycling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe Marty Erzinger is capable of knowingly leaving the scene of an injury,â&#x20AC;? said Gordon Netzorg, who described himself as a long time friend of the Erzinger family. Erzinger himself took the podium after several of

his friends and his wife. He apologized to Milo and his family for the pain and suffering the incident had caused them, and assured them that he was already paying a price for his actions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every day I feel at risk about losing my job,â&#x20AC;? he said. Since the case against him gained widespread media attention, Erzinger and members of his family have received death threats, and he has had to hire security to protect himself, his wife and his children. At last nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hearing, Erzinger was accompanied by a bodyguard. Erzinger has now plead guilty to leaving the scene of an accident and careless driving. On the former charge, he was sentenced by Fifth Judicial District Judge Frederick Gannett to pay court costs and a $300 fine, and a 90-day jail sentence, which Judge Frederick then suspended. Instead of serving the sentence as a prisoner, Erzinger was given the option of either 60 days of work release, or 45 days of charitable work outside the area. If Erzinger chooses the latter option, he will have to present a plan to Judge Frederick outlining his time, which must be spent away from his hometown and his work and involve eight hours of charity work every day. For the latter charge, Erzinger will be on probation for a year, and will not be able to drive during that period. He will have to pay court costs and will have to pay $1,300 to a local charity instead of a fine. He will have to disclose to his employers that he was charged with a felony within 15 days.

JUSTICE CENTER TOUR a switch board opening 50 doors inside the detention center. Once inside the detention center, the tour stopped by the kitchen where inmates were cooking food to serve 48. If the averages stand, 42 percent of those 48 prisoners are being held on an Immigration and Customs Enforcement hold. Kaufman said 10 percent of the detention center’s population is DUI and 85 to 90 percent are there awaiting a pretrial hearing. After the visiting the kitchen, the tour headed up to the detention center second level, but not before Kaufman took a moment to share a recipe for baked beans with the inmate cooks. On the second level is a library, exercise room and cell blocks for inmates who have shown good behavior. At the other end of the hall from the library is the commissary, where inmates can order items for purchase like soap, shampoo, candy and Cup o’ Noodles to be delivered to their cell. The commissary, along with a new break room, are located in the new part of the detention center. Walking through the hall to the detention center, Kaufman explained his bracelet, which is scripted with the initials “W.W.D.D.”. He said it is like the more well known What Would Jesus Do bracelets, but in this case it stands for What Would Doris Do? Doris is his mother, the bracelet means what would your mother do, he said. Back on the main level, the tour is guided through the smaller cells, where inmates who haven’t shown good behavior are housed, and into a hall where the medical office and a program room are located. The detention center uses the program room for GED classes, ESL classes and life skills programs. Kaufman said he is looking forward to getting a smart board for the room; a smart board

is like a giant touch-screen computer. Another upgrades for the detention center is the way visitations are done. Instead of the format you’ve seen in movies and on TV, with an inmate on one side and the visitor on the other, the detention center is using video visitation technology. When a visitor comes in to visit an inmate, they are placed in a booth, and the inmate is told they have a visitor. Inside the inmates cell is a video phone, the inmate communicates with their visitor by video feed. Inside the new cell block, this arrangement is a little different, with a couple of video phones shared by all the inmates in the block. At the end of the hall the tour explored the new wing, which, as of recently, is not being used due to low jail population numbers. Kaufman explained the unit would require the hiring of four officers to work in shifts and monitor the inmates. The two-leveled space creates a court yard filled with tables and chairs on the lower level; two large, flat-screen flat TVs adorn the wall. On both levels bunk beds surround the space, with showers on each level and a new laundry machine on the lower level. One part of the new detention center that is being used is the work release program. Under work release, a ten day sentence can be served in 5 days. For each day an inmate works in the program, a day is taken off their sentence. This program is also a source of income for the detention center – the inmates pay $340 a week. Kaufman said most people think the people in the county jail aren’t dangerous, but he pointed out a crucial point about inmates in the criminal justice system. “They all have to go through a county jail,” he said.
