Kloser wins NorAm event Local skier finds success with new trick at Deer Valley event, but yearns for pow By Brian Alexander Mountaineer Staff Writer Local mogul skier Heidi Kloser was back on the podium this week with a win at the North America (NorAm) Cup freestyle competition in Park City. Kloser has been competing on the World Cup this season, but saw this less-challenging NorAm comp as an opportunity to try some more difficult tricks. “I was kind of just looking at this competition as more of training since it’s just a NorAm, and I came there to throw my hardest tricks,” Kloser said yesterday. “I wasn’t planning on throwing d-spin, but I worked on it in training and warm-ups so I just decided when better



than the competition to try it.” The d-spin is one of the hardest tricks being done in female mogul competitions right now. It’s an off axis 720, or a “cork,” that’s not unlike the back full that Kloser is throwing down in competitions now, only off axis. “I’ve done a couple of those on water, but my first time trying on snow was four days ago,” Kloser said. “I was nervous at first, it’s pretty similar to the back full so I knew I could land it.” Kloser said her goal right now is to just ski really well and work on her new tricks. “Hopefully we can get our sport to change a little bit where more girls are throwing more tricks than just a

back flip and a 360,” she said. But in the meantime, she says she like to be doing more of what most Vail locals have been enjoying lately: powder skiing. “I’ve heard about all the powder you guys have been getting,” she said, “so when I’m in Vail I wanna do some powder skiing!” Kloser scored a 25.27, she also had the only time under 27 seconds at 26.47 and scored 13.2 on her turns - the highest by .5. She also put up the highest numbers in the air with a score of 4.93. Second was Chelsea Henitiuk of Canada with a 24.02; rounding out the podium was Maxima Dufour-Lapointe, also of Canada, with a score of 23.26.

Lochhead wins again...

Stocks finished flat yesterday, dragged down by Cisco Systems Inc. and Akamai Technologies Inc. Both issued weak earnings forecasts, raising concerns about business and technology spending. The Dow Jones industrial average ended an eight-day winning streak, entirely a result of Cisco’s 14 percent drop. Other indexes managed slight gains. The Dow lost 10.6 points, or 0.1 percent, to close at 12,229.29. The S&P 500 rose a point, or less than 0.1 percent, to 1,321.87. The Nasdaq composite rose 1.38 to close at 2,790.45.

Mubarak won’t step down

A House committee yesterday unanimously passed a bill that seeks to amend the sweeping medical marijuana laws passed last year. House Bill 1043 would in part lessen the residency requirements for employees of medical marijuana centers, allow medical marijuana centers to trade marijuana with other centers, and require a primary caregiver who cultivates marijuana to register the cultivation site and all patient identification numbers with the state. “What we’re doing this year with 1043 is really more of a cleanup in essence to the extensive legislation we passed last year,” said bill sponsor Rep. Tom Massey, R-Poncha Springs. Public testimony on HB 1043 exceeded five hours yesterday. Critics such as medical marijuana attorney Robert Corry said HB 1043 didn’t go far enough to loosen some of the allegedly harsh regulations implemented by last year’s laws. Meanwhile, supporters said the bill would be an agreeable step forward towards regulating the industry. Corry argued that the law should be amended to allow people from out of state to open up medical marijuana centers; current law requires a person to be a Colorado resident for at least two years to open a center. He called it outrageous that the state spends time and money trying to lure out-of-state businesses to Colorado, yet prohibits it when it comes to medical marijuana. He also believes the state should eliminate the law requiring medical marijuana centers to grow at least 70 percent of their own marijuana. He argued that it’s ab-

surd to potentially prosecute a medical marijuana center owner for not growing enough marijuana. “The medical marijuana industry is subject to requirements and regulations that no other industry must satisfy in the world,” he said. But some in the medical marijuana community supported the bill for allowing medical marijuana centers and infused product manufacturers to send marijuana to labs for testing. Center owners like Josh Stanley, who is also the vice-chair of the Medical Marijuana Industry Group, said allowing research and development of marijuana will help center owners recommend strains that better help patients. He said while he has some concerns about parts of the bill, it is a step in the right direction. “A good compromise is when not everybody is exactly happy,” he said. However, several pro-medical marijuana activists were outraged by the bill’s proposal to extend a moratorium on opening medical marijuana centers until July 2012. Laura Kriho of the Cannabis Therapy Institute said it wasn’t fair for Massey to add the proposal to extend the moratorium “at the last second”; another activist said the extended moratorium wasn’t fair for those planning to open up a center. Massey pointed out that the majority of the comments made during testimony were related to the laws already in place, not HB 1043. One person was cut off after attempting to give a history lesson on marijuana before then trying to comment on another medical marijuana related bill. HB 1043 now goes to the Appropriations Committee.

Vonn expected to ski today Your Choice Vonn to treat today’s Super Combi as a training run for Italian! NEWS

By Brian Alexander Mountaineer Staff Writer

Vail’s Lindsey Vonn started and successfully completed the second FIS Alpine World Ski Championship downhill training run yesterday. Vonn, who suffered a concussion earlier last week, had received clearance for the training run after ongoing medical evaluation earlier in the day. Vonn underwent medical testing prior to course inspection and again after two free ski warm up runs before receiving clearance to start. She completed the run in 2:01.90 while wearing her full Spyder warmup outerwear - a puffy white hooded-jacket and blue snow pants -1.31 seconds behind leader and recently crowned World Junior downhill champion Lotte Smiseth Sejersted of Norway. Super G silver medalist Julia Mancuso was second. As a part of the U.S. Ski Team’s concussion management program, Vonn is being evaluated before being

cleared for any activity including training and competition. U.S. women’s team head physician William Sterett has been putting Vonn through a series of concussion protocol tests, all of which she has passed. “I woke up with no headache and I went up and I passed all the tests,” Vonn said. “I did a test before I did inspection, and another test before I did the run and I passed both of those, so I decided to do the training run with my clothes — obviously to slow things down for me — but basically just to see if I could compete or do the training run and hold the concentration from the very top to the very bottom. And I felt good. I felt like it was a very good step in the right direction.” Sterett said there’s a checklist for concussion symptoms. “If there are positive symptoms — things like nausea or headache or feeling like you’re in a fog — any of those things, then you’re shut down for sure,” Sterett told The AP. “Once these symptoms become negative, [See VONN, page 16]

After a decade and a half of business, Active Communications has packed it up and moved from Gypsum to Eagle. When Anita Denboske first started the cell phone business, she ran it out of her Gypsum home. That was in the mid-‘90s, and Denboske’s first clients were locals who needed help programming the analog integrated cell phones in their cars. It was the era of cell phones the size of remote controls, when the idea of a “smartphone” was just taking root. It was the beginning of a wave of cell phone technology, and Denboske has successfully ridden that wave to profits for the last 15 years. Her business soon grew out of her house and into commercial space on Oak Ridge Drive behind Columbine Market. From that location, it has ballooned into the largest independent AT&T dealer on the Western Slope. Active Communications also has locations in Glenwood Springs, Rifle, Dillon and Edwards, all of which are owned by Denboske. “Gypsum was good to us,” Denboske said of the move. “It was definitely bittersweet leaving Gypsum.” While her roots may be in Gypsum, though, Denboske said the higher traffic of Eagle was what her business needed. Active Communications is now located in the old Prudential Real Estate building along Highway 6 in Eagle. The new store has been open since Monday.

Mail-only ballots bill dies

Traditional Karate Since 1973!

Classes for all ages Mon. - Thurs.

Lawmaker makes surprise move to shelve her own bill By Peter Marcus Special to the Mountaineer A bill that would have required mail-only ballots was “surprisingly” pulled by its sponsor yesterday after an unlikely unofficial coalition of far-left and far-right groups spoke up against the bill. Rep. Carole Murray, R-Castle Rock, said more time is needed to educate the public on mail-only ballots, as well as to address concerns over fraud, voter access and costs. The House State, Veterans & Military Affairs committee killed House Bill 1131 after Murray requested that they do so. But before officially putting the bill to rest for the year, members of the public were allowed to present testimony. Concerns were raised over false records, communication between voters and county clerks, vote buying and selling, and even fraud, including husbands pressuring their wives into voting a certain way on their mail ballots. Despite requests by chairman of the committee, Rep.

Jim Kerr, R-Littleton, for people not to comment extensively and because Murray had already agreed to pull the bill and citizens from both the far-left and far-right spoke up against it. “There are a lot of different reasons why people don’t participate (in elections), and it’s not because of the convenience of the mail-in ballot,” said Nancy Rumfelt, vice-chairwoman of the tea party 9-12 project. “It has more to do with the fact that they are not really certain that their vote really matters any more because of the politicians, the way they say one thing and then do another.” The Colorado County Clerks Association immediately issued a news release stating that it will continue efforts to support the legislation and to educate the public. Supporters say the system would streamline the elections process, add convenience and save the state $12 million each general election. Nearly 70 percent of voters in Colorado cast mail ballots in the November election, according to the association. [See BALLOTS, page 16]

Daylight Saving bill goes dark

Vail Mountaineer

Lawmakers reject proposal to end daylight saving time in Colo. By Peter Marcus Special to the Mountaineer The sun has set on a bill that would have ended daylight saving time in Colorado. The House State, Veterans & Military Affairs Committee yesterday killed House Bill 1067 on a vote of 7-2. Some lawmakers had raised concerns over how to implement a proper transition, as well as concerns over energy issues related to added hours of darkness. HB 1067 would have had Colorado permanently stay on standard time. The bill’s sponsor, Rep. Ed Vigil, DFort Garland, said the bill was for the parents and children who have a difficult time adjusting to the change each year. “It’s hard to change like that,” Vigil said after the

vote. “A lot of moms brought this to me because with their kids in November, they’ve got to put them out in the snow and dark in November and earlier, and, of course, some pet owners who say my animals don’t deal with that really well either.” “Why don’t we just normalize our time so that we don’t have to deal with all this crazy stuff?” he asked. Vigil says that beyond the concerns raised by his colleagues, he doesn’t feel his bill was taken very seriously. “I don’t think they took it seriously,” he said. “But you’ve got to kind of roll with it.” A competing piece of legislation from Sen. Greg Brophy, R-Wray, would put the state on daylight saving time permanently. But concerns have already been raised that Senate Bill 22 would create a new time zone for the state, which would require a federal waiver.

Huge week coming for SOS Organizers say non-profit will take more than 1,200 kids skiing Officials at Snowboard Outreach Society announced that they are anticipating next week to be their biggest of the season. The Avon-based nonprofit aims to bring kids aged eight to 18 into the world of outdoor sports. In the summer months, they take students on weeklong backpacking trips or one-day rock climbs, and in the winter they take them on the slopes. Next week, they will bring upwards of 1,200 students to 18 resorts in six different states. For many of the students, it will be their first day on the slopes. “Not only do they get riding instruction, but they also get character instruction,” said SOS Outreach Development Manager Melanie Wong. Free ski lessons and time on the hill are a “carrot” to draw kids into programs intended to teach them life skills that may not be taught to some in their homes or schools. The students in SOS are nominated for the program by their teachers for a number of reasons, Wong said. Some may not be able to afford to ski otherwise, others come from troubled homes or have behavioral problems in school. SOS’ programs this week will range from one-day snowboarding/skiing experiences for underserved, underprivileged youth to multi-day intensive programs aimed at getting kids who have been in SOS multiple years to work with an adult mentor and develop life skills. SOS youth learn to ski and ride with their teachers, SOS volunteers and SOS staff. At the beginning and end of each ride day, they talk about SOS’ “core values” – courage, discipline, integrity, wisdom and compassion – and what it means to live those out, whether on the slopes, school or at home. The idea is that the slopes are an ideal and fun place to learn those values. As Eagle County seventh grader Jaimin Westenfelder said, “My group talked about the courage it took to do S-turns, or go down a steep run or go up a chairlift when they were afraid. We had to learn to be patient and compassionate with our group members. We wouldn’t quit on our teammates when they fell.”

Of the 1,188 students that will be on the mountain this week, about 1,000 of them will be riding in Colorado, and of those, 320 will be from Eagle County and 235 will be from Summit County. Many of those kids are residents of mountain communities whose families don’t have access to the resorts, as well as kids from the urban areas who don’t usually have the chance to experience the nearby mountains, said Seth Winnerman, executive director of the Denver nonprofit cityWILD. The organization will bring several groups of kids up to Copper Mountain next week. “These students have been snowboarding with SOS for a number of years, an experience otherwise not accessible without the resources provided by cityWILD and SOS,” Winnerman said. “Through the mentorship of SOS staff and volunteers and combined with our after-school programming, students learn a new skill and can take the lessons of being challenged, perseverance and then confidence to their everyday lives.”

Human trafficking at Paddy’s tonight

Not everyone has someone to love in the Vail Valley, but lots of people have some money. Tonight at Paddy’s Pub in Eagle-Vail, those lucky locals will have a chance to trade one for the other. Typically, the kind of event going on at Paddy’s tonight is dubbed a bachelor/ bachelorette auction, but owner Susan Swimm is simply calling hers a “pimps and hoes meat market auction”. “It’s not a serious thing really,” Swimm said. “Really it’s just supposed to be fun.” At 11 p.m., the valley’s most eligible men and women will go up for auction at the bar. The wealthy single who puts up the most cash will get to take their prize back to Paddy’s to enjoy a free dinner for two and a bottle of wine. The night will be fun even for people who don’t throw around enough cash to bring home a valentine, though. Attendees can compete in a costume contest, and prizes like t-shirts, gift cards and free cocktails will be given away all night. For tonight and tomorrow, the bar’s kitchen will be open until midnight. So far, Swimm has convinced about a half dozen men and women to put themselves on the auction block, and she is hoping to see more. Spots are still available for men and women who want to sell themselves off, and will be until the auction is finished. All proceeds will go to the Vail Valley Charitable Fund.

Vail’s different daily alternative


Two creative, tireless and dedicated instructors recently were honored as the faculty members of the year at Colorado Mountain College in Edwards. Associate Professor of Communications Jennifer Wing, who has a doctorate in literature and a master’s degree in English, was named the full-time faculty of the year. Ceramics instructor Colleen Everett, who has a master’s of fine arts in ceramics, was named adjunct, or part-time, faculty of the year. Every year each of Colorado Mountain College’s seven campuses, as well as the college’s department of online learning, can nominate an adjunct and a fulltime faculty member of the year. From those honorees, senior administrators then select a collegewide award recipient in each of the two categories. Students say both of the engaging instructors in Edwards go the “extra mile” to encourage their students. In addition to their teaching duties, the women contribute to improving the academic rigor and excellence of the college, colleagues say. Eagle resident Wing, now in her third year at the college, has been a major player in a faculty advising initiative and served on the collegewide Common Reader committee. The Common Reader is a book that students, staff, faculty and community members are encouraged to read each year. Associate professor Wing is a Walt Whitman fan whose academic specialty is 19th century American literature focusing on the feminist perspective. She teaches courses in basic writing, English composition, introduction to literature, ethnic literature and public speaking. She said she appreciates being able to work with students in Colorado Mountain College’s small classes. “I enjoy teaching this student population with their energy and their insightfulness,” Wing said. “They bring a lot of interesting ideas to the table when we are discussing literature.

Porchlight Players take the stage in Eagle tonight. This weekend, some of the folks down valley plan to put on scene. Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, the Porchlight Players will perform at the Brush Creek Pavilion in Eagle. The local theater group is just finishing up their sixth season with a production of “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change”, a musical revue made up of short vignettes about love that are funny and often touching. The production will be the Players’ last of the season, said President Ann Olin, and comes just in time for Valentine’s Day. The cast of the play runs the gamut from former professional actors to amatuers who have never even stepped foot in a theater, Olin said. “Accountants and dog catchers and secretaries,” she said. “You name it.” The actors and actresses typically come from Eagle or Gypsum, where Olin said the Players’ are working to carve out a foothold for live theater. “We’re trying to put theater so in their face and make is so easily accessible that they can’t help but go,” she said. Of the three shows, all are sold out but Sunday nights. Tickets for that show are $20, and include three drinks (beer, wine or soda), coffee and dessert.

Join us for Valentine’s

EVHS wrestling fight for Denver

Regionals start today in Grand Junction By Brian Alexander Mountaineer Staff Writer The Eagle Valley High School wrestling team heads to Grand Junction this weekend for a chance to get to Denver. Along with 16 other high schools, the Eagles will travel to Mesa State College to compete in the Western Slope Regional Wrestling tournament. The top four place winners per weight class will qualify for the state tournament next weekend held at the Pepsi Center in Denver starting on Thursday. Led by senior team leader and captain Matt Kottenstette, the young Devils believe they have what it takes to advance a handful of guys through to next weekend despite their youth. The Devils varsity lineup consists of six sophomores and one freshman, which should bode well for the future. “This may look like a weakness on paper, but this sophomore class can compete with anyone,” said EVHS wrestling coach Luke Cross. “As a team, we have looked great this season. In years past, we’ve had many gaps in our lineup, however this year we fill 13 of 14 weight classes.” Of the seven tournaments EVHS has competed in this year, they have placed in the top five as a team five times. The big highlight of the Devil’s season came early in December when they won the Buena Vista Tournament, their first team wrestling victory since 2006. One Eagle Valley wrestler who knows what it takes to make it to Denver is senior leader Kottenstette. The two-time state qualifier is having himself quite the year. Currently the fourth ranked 160-pound wrestler in the state with a record of 34-3, Kottenstette knows what it takes to be the best, Cross said. “He has been a great leader for our team,” Cross said. “We are looking to see him at the top of the podium at the Pepsi Center next weekend.” Kottenstette will attend the Air Force Academy after high school. Other Devils to watch this weekend include 103-pound Damien Atencio - the junior finished the season with a solid 26-9 record. 119-pound Kris Moya - the very

talented junior finished 22-14 and is easily capable of making it to Denver. 130-pound Taylor Wheeler - the sophomore with a 24-12 record has been ranked in top 15 in state all season. 140-pound Matt Minder - the senior hasn’t competed since Jan. 8 due to injury, but with a 13-6 record before sitting out, he’s one to keep an eye on. 145-pound Cole Neilsen, with a 23-9 record the extremely athletic sophomore is in a tough weight class and will have to beat some highly ranked guys to make it. 152-pound Andrew Vigil, the 16-6 sophomore is in another tough weight class but is capable of at-

The team will compete in Grand Junction this weekend in the Western Slope Regional Wrestling tournament. If they place in the top four, they will go on to the state championships at the Pepsi Center

taining top four. 189-pound Andy Armstrong, at 27-12 this sophomore has everything it takes to make it to the Pepsi Center. 215-pound Joey Sanchez, the sophomore with a 20-13 mark can make the finals. Heavyweight Satchel Jones, the junior has a 20-14 record in his first year of wrestling. The big boys of the team are both capable of making it to Denver, but it will depend if their inexperience holds them back. Regionals begin today at 1 p.m. and continue through around 7 p.m. Saturday.

Custom Ian Lochhead has done it again. Aphrodisiac Baskets The former CU racer won the fourth East West Partners Vail Alpine Town Series race yesterday for his fourth win in a row. It’s becoming old hat for Lochhead to win these races. He says it’s more about having a good time than anything else. In fact these town races are such a good time, self-proclaimed “old man” Dave Perrigo, who couldn’t even walk to his bathroom for the prior two days and visited his chiropractor twice this week even made it out to race. Followed by Lochhead in the men’s Alpine individual results was Steven Jones and Bruce Hamlin. Matt Baker led the way for men’s Snowboard individuals. Julia Littman was the top female finisher barely edging out Krissie Poehling in the women’s Alpine results. Cristy Callier took top honors in the womens Snowboards individuals. Littman and Lochhead lead team Jensen Farms to victory again in the team results in the pro team division, with The George team taking first in the motley crew division. Come and enjoy the only pro style dual slalom races of the season next week, as the last races for this year’s series are Thursday starting at noon instead of the usual 1 p.m.

ers in Tahrir Square that all their demands would soon be met, raising cries of victory that Mubarak was on his way out. The military’s Supreme Council, headed by Defense Minister Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, announced on state TV that it was in permanent session, a status that it takes only in times of war. It said it was exploring “what measures and arrangements could be made to safeguard the nation, its achievements and the ambitions of its great people.” That suggested Tantawi and his generals were now in charge of the country. The statement was labeled “Communique No. 1,” language that also suggests a military coup. Mubarak called the protesters’ demands legitimate and promised that September presidential elections - in which he says he will not run - will be “free and fair” with supervision to ensure transparency.

The mood in Tahrir Square was exultant. Finally, the protesters thought, their moment in history had come: President Hosni Mubarak was about to quit. Then euphoria turned to fury. Unease turned to head-shaking disbelief and murmurs of disgust. Then anger surged, and tears of frustration fell. Mubarak was not stepping down. Even before he finished speaking, people were booing and chanting “Get out!” and “We’re not happy!” while waving their shoes in the air, the soles facing toward a large open-air screen that showed the president speaking from notes behind a podium. Gesturing with shoes is a grave insult in the Arab world. But it was the crowd that felt insulted, cheated, their expectations shattered after a day of conflicting reports about what would come next in the Egyptian crisis. Tears welled up in the eyes of people who just half an hour earlier had been waving flags in elation and chanting “We’re almost there!” as hundreds of thousands crammed into the square to await Mubarak’s speech.

billion in January and is expected to finish the year as the highest in history. The Treasury Department said yesterday the deficit was one of the highest ever for the month of January, second only to the $63 billion deficit recorded two years ago. For the first four months of this budget year, the deficit totaled $418.8 billion, 2.7 percent lower than the same period a year ago. However, this improving trend is expected to reverse in coming months. The Congressional Budget Office is projecting a record deficit of $1.5 trillion this budget year, which ends in September. The estimate was revised upward last month based on a tax-cut package brokered between the White House and Republicans that will add $400 billion to this year’s red ink. That will mark the third consecutive year that the government’s deficit has been over $1 trillion, unprecedented imbalances that have been caused by the worst recession since the 1930s.

President Barack Obama promoted plans yesterday to bring high-speed wireless to nearly all American households, pushing his domestic agenda in Marquette, Mich. Obama kept in touch with his security team throughout the trip and opened his remarks at Northern Michigan University with brief comments on the events overseas, where President Hosni Mubarak appeared close to resigning. He then turned to the importance of investing in wireless technology, part of a new White House focus on innovation, competitiveness and infrastructure as a pathway to jobs and “winning the future.” The president compared the goal of extending wireless access to important successes that connected previous generations of Americans: the building of railroads and the federal highway system. “For millions of Americans, the railway hasn’t shown up yet,” Obama said. “For our families and our businesses, high-speed wireless service: that’s the next train station; it’s the next off-ramp. It’s how we’ll spark new innovation, new investments and new jobs.”

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------The Donald thinking about the White House

Just how wide open is the Republican presidential field? Vast enough that Donald Trump may want you to hire him. The billionaire real estate mogul and host of television’s “The Apprentice” got a raucous reception yesterday when he dangled a potential candidacy before thousands of conservatives who descended on the nation’s capital eager to help a GOP challenger deny President Barack Obama a second term. “The United States is becoming the laughingstock of the world,” Trump said, sounding every bit a candidate as he offered his rationale for a possible bid. In a speech sprinkled with quips and jabs, he said he would decide by June whether to run. It was Trump, who showed interest in 1988 and 2000 in running for president but never did, whose appearance brought down the house and created a circus-like atmosphere, even upstaging a surprise appearance by former Vice President Dick Cheney.

#2 Republican Senator won’t seek re-election

Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., announced yesterday he will step down next year after three terms in office, creating yet another vacancy in a chamber about to undergo a significant makeover with several incumbents either stepping down or facing tough re-election challenges. The decision to retire by Arizona’s junior senator set off an immediate scramble for what will be Arizona’s first open Senate seat in 18 years. Kyl, who has become a leading conservative voice on foreign affairs, said at a news conference it was time to give someone else a shot at the seat he’s held since 1994. He said he announced his retirement now to give fellow Republicans time to raise money and formulate their campaign strategies. Kyl is the fifth senator to announce plans to retire in recent weeks, and his departure comes as welcome news to Democrats who a day earlier heard Democratic Sen. Jim Webb of Virginia announce he wouldn’t run

again. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee said Kyl’s decision made the seat “a prime pickup opportunity.”

Watch out, Charlie’s single

Charlie Sheen can go back to being single, but he’ll have to wait a few months before it’s official, a judge ruled yesterday. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Hank Goldberg finalized Sheen’s divorce from his ex-wife Brooke Mueller Sheen, but the pair will not be legally single until May 2. The actor and Brooke Sheen filed dueling divorce petitions in November, citing Christmas Day 2009 as the day of their breakup. Charlie Sheen was arrested in Aspen, Colo., that day on suspicion of domestic violence against his wife. He later resolved the case and spent 30 days on probation. The former couple will split the royalties from baby portraits of them and their twin sons, and the actor will keep his Hollywood Hills home, court records show. The Sheens signed a prenuptial agreement before their May 2008 wedding, which called for Charlie Sheen to pay Brooke Sheen more than $750,000.

No charges against Busch heir

The death of a 27-year-old model found in the home of Anheuser-Busch heir August Busch IV has kept much of St. Louis spellbound for nearly two months, but prosecutors put speculation to rest yesterday, saying no criminal charges would be filed against Busch in his girlfriend’s accidental overdose death. Adrienne Martin had cocaine and the prescription painkiller oxycodone in her system, but it was impossible to determine how she got the drugs, St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch said. An autopsy identified an oxycodone overdose as Martin’s cause of death, but McCulloch said she had taken lethal levels of both drugs. “It was clearly an accidental overdose,” McCulloch [See UPDATES, page 20]

But county clerks agree that additional education is needed. “Confidence in our election systems is paramount to our county clerks,” said Pueblo County Clerk and Recorder Gilbert Ortiz. “While the vast majority of voters prefer mail ballots, we want to make sure we have made every effort to assuage fears and answer concerns before we move forward.” Murray said she remains committed to the legisla-

tion. “I feel strongly, as an active participant in our political system, as a former county clerk and as a legislator, that we have an obligation to listen to the overwhelming majority of Colorado voters who already enjoy efficient, safe and cost-effective voting by mail ballot,” Murray said in a statement. “It’s important to me É and to the County Clerks that we take time to educate the public about the future of elections in Colorado.”


then we go onto more cognitive testing — balance, memory, repetition — things that are easily defined and measured. “Again, if you don’t pass that then you’re done again. Once you pass that, then we take a step backwards to the subjective test list and try to slowly increase the stress or exertion on an athlete.” Sterett has been measuring Vonn’s exertion on a stationary bike and during free skiing. The training run itself, which Vonn ran at a lower level of intensity, was used as a further stress test to evaluate her readiness for future competition. The evaluation process will continue this morning before making a final decision on starting the super combined medal event. If she ends up racing the downhill portion of the combined event and goes well, she might enter the afternoon slalom leg, but that appears unlikely. “The second I have a headache or focus problems,

I’m going to stop,” Vonn said. “I want to be really careful from here on out. It’s a pretty bad sign that I had symptoms again after the super-G, which means that I’m not recovered yet, so I’m not going to take any chances. “This is a dangerous downhill, and if I don’t feel like I can focus then I’m not going to do it.” Vonn finished seventh in the super-G at world on Tuesday, and said she felt like she was “skiing in a fog.” She skipped the opening downhill training session on Wednesday. She suffered the concussion after crashing during a training run last week in Austria. “I feel better today,” Vonn said. “I took yesterday completely off. I did basically nothing. I sat in a dark room and didn’t have any stimulation, which is what the doctors told me to do, and today I feel much better.” Vonn won this season’s only super-combined race in December in Val d’Isere, France.

THE UPDATE said. “There’s no evidence to support any kind of finding that she may have been forced to do anything other than taking the drugs voluntarily.” Busch’s attorney, Art Margulis, said the decision not to file charges “was the only logical and reasonable conclusion. There really never has been a basis for criminal action, but I hope the extensive investigation will clear the air and bring closure.” Busch, 46, was the last chief executive officer of St. Louis-based Anheuser-Busch Cos. Inc. before the company was sold to Belgian brewer InBev in 2008 - two years after he was named CEO. Busch remains a member of InBev’s board of directors but had otherwise disappeared from public view since the merger.

Neighborhood elk hunt

Bringing the majestic elk back to the Appalachian hills and hollows where they once roamed has become a nightmare. Rogues from a herd that numbers in the thousands are trampling gardens, flattening fences and marring yards with manure in the southeastern Kentucky town of Stoney Fork. They have made the roads dangerous, causing dozens of car crashes. Some residents have had enough. With the state’s OK, they headed out into the woods to kill elk. They killed 13 of them. “They’re dangerous. Somebody’s going to get killed if they don’t do something,” said Stoney Fork resident Nelson Short, a 73-year-old resident with a flowing white beard that gleams like Santa’s. Wildlife managers began bringing elk into the state in 1997 from several western states in what was heralded as an important ecology and tourism program. A group of about 1,500 elk released into 14 counties has grown to more than 10,000. “When they started bringing them in here, I thought it would be a good thing,” Short said. “It wasn’t.” Short joined about 35 neighbors in a hunt one recent day. With a black 7mm Ruger slung across his shoulder, he boasted that one he caught trespassing on his land wound up in his freezer, sliced into steaks.

Endangered species: sub-5 mortgage

The days of the absurdly low mortgage rate are over. The average rate for a 30-year home loan rose above 5 percent this week for the first time since last April just as Americans are feeling more secure in their jobs and confident about the economy, and just before the big spring home-buying rush. Freddie Mac said yesterday that the average rate was 5.05 percent, almost a full percentage point higher than in November, when it hit a 40-year low. Economic signals suggest the recovery is gaining momentum. New claims for jobless benefits came in this week at the lowest in three years, and the unemployment rate has fallen nearly a full percentage point in two months. Americans are spending more and saving less. Many analysts say low lending rates are less likely to persuade people to buy than, say, reasonable home prices or a steady job market. “You’ll see some effect on demand, but it’s really how secure people are in their jobs and how much money they feel they have relative to their homes,” says Cristian deRitis, an economist specializing in housing for Moody’s Analytics.

Someone’s not drinking enough Coors

Molson Coors Brewing Co.’s fourth-quarter net income fell by more than half as it sold less beer in the U.S. and U.K. and dealt with rising taxes and higher costs for ingredients and fuel. The Denver company raised prices in the downturn to protect its profit margins, and it sold less beer as a result. Before the fourth quarter, cost-cutting was helping its profit rise. Molson Coors reported yesterday that it earned $109.8 million, or 58 cents per share, for the quarter that ended Dec. 25. That’s down 51 percent from $222.1 million, or $1.19 per share, a year earlier. Adjusted earnings amounted to 66 cents a share. “In the U.S., unemployment amongst our core con-

sumer base remains high, and U.S. beer industry volumes continue to be weak,” said Peter Swinburn, president and CEO of Molson Coors. The company plans to introduce Miller Genuine Draft lemonade in the summer and promote seasonal versions of its Blue Moon brand. To offset weakness in more established markets, the company is trying to expand in emerging markets such as China and woo new drinkers to its Coors Light brand.

Court says don’t ZIP it in California

The California Supreme Court ruled yesterday that merchants can no longer ask for the ZIP codes of customers who make purchases with credit cards because such requests violate a state consumer-protection law. The high court’s unanimous decision, which says a ZIP code can be used as “personal identification information,” overturned two lower court decisions tossing out the lawsuit. It delivered retailers in California a setback that an attorney for one national chain said would likely lead to additional lawsuits. The decision came in a lawsuit filed against WilliamsSonoma Inc., whose clerk asked Jessica Pineda for her ZIP code several years ago. Pineda sued the home retailer in June 2008, saying it violated the credit card law and her privacy. Supreme Court Justice Carlos Moreno, writing for the full court, said the ZIP code is part of a customer’s address, which the California law explicitly categorized as off-limits. The Supreme Court said that Williams-Sonoma recorded Pineda’s ZIP code in an electronic cash register, which was fed into the company’s central database. From there, it used software to match the customer’s name and ZIP code with her undisclosed address, information it can use to market its own products and sell to other businesses. That’s why the Supreme Court ruled that acquiring a customer’s ZIP code violated the California law.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Fame doesn’t protect movie stars from stroke risk

Endorsement Lohan-style

The woman who designed the necklace that Lindsay Lohan allegedly stole from an L.A. jewelry store tells TMZ, “I’m flattered that she likes it!” Pratima Sethi, who designed the one-of-a-kind necklace that has become an albatross around Lindsay’s neck, says the whole shoplifting thing doesn’t concern her. The San Francisco designer says, “I’m a simple person. I am so far removed from the incident. I just sold the piece to the store.” The gossip web site TMZ opines, “Too bad for Lindsay ... if Sethi made crappy necklaces, it could have been a misdemeanor.”

Hollywood trivia quiz: What do Sharon Stone, Dudley Moore, James Garner and Elizabeth Taylor have in common besides an Oscar nomination? All have suffered strokes, a reminder that money and fame can’t insulate you from a health risk that much can be done to prevent, researchers said yestreday. The International Stroke Conference is being held in Tinseltown for the first time, just three weeks before this year’s Oscars are to be awarded. So researchers at the University of California at Los Angeles had the idea to check movie stars’ rates of heart attacks and strokes. “We see the diseases that ravage them just as they ravage the rest of the country and the world,” said Dr. Jeffrey Saver, director of the stroke center at UCLA. He has treated several Hollywood glitterati who suffered strokes. The movie industry did wrong for many years by glamorizing smoking, a big contributor to stroke risk, he said. Paradoxically, it is now helping to make obesity unattractive, he said — celluloid is not kind to cellulite. For their study, researchers searched the Internet and a movie industry database to compile a list of all best actor/actress nominees since the Oscars began in 1927 through 2009. Of the 409 nominees, at least 29 have suffered strokes — 6 were fatal — and 39 have had heart attacks. Stroke sufferers were 35 on average when nominated and 67 when stricken. It put a dent in their careers — film and TV appearances fell 73 percent in the three years after a stroke and 69 percent after a heart attack, said study coordinator Hannah Smith of UCLA.

Smart phone apps for theme park visitors


[From page 15]

for Walt Disney World and other central Florida attractions? There’s an app for that. Plenty of them, actually. And they could prove useful for visitors heading to Orlando for Presidents Day week (beginning Feb. 24), traditionally one of the busiest times for theme parks, with many kids off from school. Software developers started tapping into smart-phone users’ zeal for theme parks a couple years ago, and dozens of applications are now available for iPhones, Droids and other handheld devices that can make park visits more efficient and fun. A few can be downloaded free, but most cost a few dollars. There are apps with park maps, some of which work with the phone’s GPS function to show your exact location and what’s nearby. There are apps for park times and to help visitors choose a restaurant by cuisine and price. Others can research and compare resort hotels, help plan the trip and count down the days, find the right shuttle bus routes and entertain the kids when you get there.

Artist-in-residence named for Zion National Park

The National Parks service has selected Maryland sculptor David Purcell as the new artist-in-residence at Utah’s Zion National Park. In a news release, the parks service says Purcell, of Baltimore, will spend a month using topographical maps, observations, drawings and photographs to create a series of sculptures inspired by Zion’s landforms. Purcell will end his month of study with a lecture at the Zion Lodge on Feb. 25. A second presentation is scheduled for March 3 at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. Zion’s artist-in-residence program gives professional artists a chance to live and work in the park. The program is funded through the parks service along with the Zion Natural History Association and Southern Utah University. —Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

Relative of first Packers prez lost SB seat of the ticketholders have either been located or have called the league. Some have shown up at the league’s New York office.

Neither Atallah nor NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith would comment on why Thursday’s session was called off.

Engineers: Replace Metrodome roof

Peggy Beisel-McIlwaine, the granddaughter of the first Green Bay Packers president, happens to be among the Super Bowl ticket holders involved in a class action lawsuit over being forced from their Super Bowl seats. In a letter sent to the NFL, which she provided to The Associated Press, Beisel-McIlwaine said Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones should never be allowed to host another Super Bowl. She called her experience at Cowboys Stadium a “total disaster.” Beisel-McIlwaine wrote that it took several hours before stadium and league officials finally led her and other displaced fans from their upper deck seats to a field level bar area behind the Pittsburgh Steelers bench, which didn’t have a view of the field. The 55-year-old woman from Michigan told the AP she received a call Wednesday from the NFL, and will be going to the league office Friday in New York to meet with a person who is handling her situation. “I hope we can get this remedied quickly,” she wrote. Beisel-McIlwaine’s grandfather was Andrew Blair Turnbull, the Packers’ first president and a member of the team’s Hall of Fame. Her father was Daniel C. Beisel, a Packers’ board member from 1968 until his death in 2009. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said Thursday that 40 employees have been assigned to help identify and assist fans who were left without seats. He said 260

Yesterdays engineers who examined the Metrodome roof that collapsed in a December snowstorm recommended that it should be replaced rather than repaired. Engineers from several firms concurred in the recommendation in a development that could stretch the time it takes to get the Vikings back on their home field. They wrote in their report that full replacement of the 10-acre roof was the only way to guard against another deflation from defects they might not have found. Several panels ripped under the weight of the snow, but many others appeared undamaged. “We would not be able to certify that the roof membrane meets industry standard levels of safety without a complete replacement of the roof membrane,” one firm, Walter P. Moore and Associates, said in the report. The commission that operates the Metrodome, the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission, was to vote on the recommendation later in the day so work could start immediately. The cost of a full repair wasn’t immediately available. Commission officials had said they expected insurance to cover most of it. Commission Chairman Ted Mondale earlier estimated full replacement could take as long as six months, threatening the Vikings’ preseason games in mid-August. But it’s possible those games could be moved to the University of Minnesota’s TCF Bank Stadium, where the team played its last home game this season after being forced out of the Metrodome.

NFL, Union cancel day two of bargaining session

A NFL lockout could become inevitable as negotiations took a back turn yesterday with the cancellation of the second day of a planned two-day bargaining session. “We wish we were negotiating today,” NFL Players Association spokesman George Atallah said. “That’s all I can say.” There are just three weeks to go before the collective bargaining agreement expires on March 3. The NFL said it would not comment on CBA meetings at this point. The league did confirm that Commissioner Roger Goodell has canceled an owners’ meeting scheduled for next Tuesday in Philadelphia. The two sides got together Wednesday for the second time in five days, the previous negotiations taking place in Dallas on Saturday before the Super Bowl.

McIlroy leads Dubai after 65

Rory McIlroy upstaged the world’s top three golfers with a 7-under 65 Thursday to take the first-round lead at the Dubai Desert Classic, four shots better than No. 1 Lee Westwood and Martin Kaymer and six ahead of an inconsistent Tiger Woods. McIlroy, whose only European Tour win came in Dubai two years ago, had eight birdies to go with one bogey at the Emirates Golf Club. The seventh-ranked McIlroy took the early lead and held it. Sergio Garcia (67) and Thomas Aiken (67) trailed by two shots in windy conditions. “I really had a lot of iron shots and got away with a couple of drives that I was quite fortunate to make birdies from,” the 21-year-old McIlroy said. “I had a putt

UCI, AFLD could rejoin forces for 2011 Tour

The French anti-doping agency (AFLD) and cycling’s governing body (UCI) have started discussions about renewing their partnership for the Tour de France. The two organizations have been at odds in recent years after Pierre Bordry, a former president of the agency, criticized the UCI’s anti-doping program. That resulted in the AFLD being cut out of testing at last year’s Tour. AFLD president Bruno Genevois said at a joint news conference yesterday with World Anti-Doping Agency chief John Fahey that talks have begun with the UCI. A renewed cooperation could open the way for AFLD testers to collect samples during the Paris-Nice race from March 6-13 before the Tour de France in July. “Contacts have been renewed and we can hope for a good outcome in March,” Genevois said. “Discussions between the AFLD and UCI are still ongoing and I can’t

tell you more for the moment, but we are hopeful.” Fahey said the UCI has a responsibility to ensure a “robust anti-doping program” is implemented for cycling’s showcase race. The AFLD was only allowed to perform supplementary tests at last year’s Tour after WADA intervened. When publishing its 2010 Tour report, WADA praised the UCI’s overall efforts at the Tour, but said improvements could be made in testing. WADA’s report also said the UCI should work with the AFLD given its track record in catching 2006 Tour champion Floyd Landis for doping and uncovering the widespread use of CERA, an advanced form of the blood-booster EPO. Bordry and UCI president Pat McQuaid fell out when they worked together during the 2009 Tour. Bordry has since resigned.

Woods to receive $55.4 million to promote resort

According to a recent article in a United Arab Emirates business magazine, Tiger Woods received $55.4 million from a developer to promote a local golf resort that has yet to be built. Arabian Business reported yesterday that it has seen documents confirming Woods received the payments to promote the $1 billion project, with the course at the centerpiece of a complex of 100 villas, 75 mansions and 22 palaces. Woods refused to comment Wednesday on the contract he signed with the course developer, part of a conglomerate controlled by Dubai’s debt-squeezed ruler. But he said he hoped to meet with developers to discuss reviving the project while he is in Dubai.

for a 64 on the last that didn’t quite go in. But I’ll take 65 in these conditions any day.” Woods shot a 71 and had problems early in the day, twice going to 2 over. But he eagled the 18th hole after hitting a 3-wood about 250 yards to the green. “I struggled today with ball flight,” he said. “My trajectory wasn’t what I wanted on a lot of shots, and consequently, I could never get a ball pin high especially when the wind is blowing this hard.” Much of the buzz coming into the opening round centered on the grouping of the top three golfers. Westwood made several putts en route to four birdies. But he faltered toward the end, three-putting on 17 to miss out on another birdie and scoring a lone bogey on the 18th when his approach shot fell short of the green and nearly rolled into the water. “I played solidly. I didn’t make too many mistakes,” Westwood said. “It was disappointing to shoot one over for the last two holes. One under would have been nice. All in all, 69 was a pretty good score.” Kaymer’s approach shot on the ninth hole hit the grandstand and ended up in the water, leading to a double bogey. He finished with six birdies, including one on the 17th where his drive cut the corner on the 359-yard hole and ended up on the green. He narrowly missed an eagle putt. “Yeah, it was OK,” Kaymer said. “I hit a lot of good shots, and was a little bit unfortunate on the ninth.” Woods had trouble and flashes of brilliance during his round. The troubles were obvious by his body language—he swore after an approach shot drifted left and slammed a club into the ground one wayward shot that led to his double bogey on the 12th hole.
