Legends return to Vail 10th Mountain division veterans to ski Riva Ridge today after visit to Ski Museum By Matt Minich Mountaineer Editor Last night, Vail Mountain staff ran the groomers along Riva Ridge to prepare for a special group of guests: several surviving members of Camp Hale’s famed 10th Mountain Division. The Mountain Division troops are credited by most with putting Vail on the map. Specially commissioned to fight in the European mountains during World War II, the troops trained at Camp Hale, near Red Cliff, and were among the first to ever ski the central Rockies. Many later returned to found the area’s ski resorts, in-


cluding Vail Mountain. About ten of the men who fought with the 10th Mountain Division toured Colorado’s ski resorts this past week for the 36th annual ski reunion. The festivities are now a shadow of what they were decades ago, said veteran Dick Dirkes, who said the first reunions shipped the veterans around the state by the busload. Now, most members of the 10th Mountain Division have passed away, and those that remain are in mostly in their 80s. “I’ll be 87 next month,” Dirkes said. “And I’m one of the younger ones.” While training at Camp Hale, members of the 10th

Mountain Division spent weeks at a time skiing through the Rockies on wooden skis, wearing packs weighing upwards of 40 pounds and carrying rifles all the while. The unit spent their time in huts or tents, and learned not only to shoot and ski, but to rock climb and survive without resources in the harsh mountain wilderness. That training seems to have paid off – by all accounts, the men of the 10th Mountain Division who still take to the slopes still ski with the grace and the strength of much younger men. The group will meet around 8:30 a.m. in front of the [See 10TH MOUNTAIN, page 8]

Remembering the fallen...

Deadly response to Libyan protests

Deep rifts opened in Moammar Gadhafi’s regime, with Libyan government officials at home and abroad resigning, air force pilots defecting and a bloody crackdown on protest in the capital of Tripoli, where cars and buildings were burned. Gadhafi went on state TV early Tuesday to attempt to show he was still in charge. World leaders expressed outrage Monday at the “vicious forms of repression” used against the demonstrators. The mercurial leader appeared briefly on TV to dispel rumors that he had fled. Sitting in a car in front of what appeared to be his residence and holding an umbrella out of the passenger side door, he told an interviewer that he had wanted to go to the capital’s Green Square to talk to his supporters, but the rain stopped him. “I am here to show that I am in Tripoli and not in Venezuela. Don’t believe those misleading dog stations,” he said, referring to the media reports that he had left the country. The video clip and comments lasted less than a minute — unusual for Gadhafi, who is known for rambling speeches that often last hours. [See UPDATES, page 10]

Soda tax could fizzle out New bill would eliminate 2.9 percent sales tax on soda By Gene Davis Special to the Mountaineer A newly implemented sales tax on soda would fizzle out under a bill up for consideration this week. HB 1162 would eliminate the 2.9-percent sales tax that was placed on sodas last year. Bill sponsor Rep. David Balmer, (R-Centennial) said it’s not right to charge a sales tax for sodas while other beverages at grocery stores are sales tax free. “I’m just trying to return fairness to beverages,” he said. Lawmakers last year got rid of a series of tax credits and exemptions in order to generate additional revenue for the cash-strapped state. Eliminating the tax exemption for soda and candy was expected to bring the state $17.9 million this fiscal year. The fiscal note for HB 1162 projects that eliminating the tax on soda would annually cost the state about $12.3 million in revenue. Rep. Mark Ferrandino (DDenver) believes it’s a bad idea to get rid of a source of revenue as the state is facing a shortfall exceeding $1 billion and is looking to cut up to $355 million for K-12 education. “With all of these exemptions and credits we eliminated last year, I’m always willing to look at them and revisit them,” he said. “But the question for all of them is, if we...lower the revenues in the state, where will you cut the budget to make up for the shortfall?” However, Balmer said that increasing taxes on goods


like soda diminishes Colorado’s reputation as a low-tax, business-friendly state. He added that grocery stores have been burdened by the paperwork that is required by charging a tax on one of the goods they sell. Health issue Lisa Walvoord of LiveWell Colorado, a nonprofit aimed at reducing obesity in Colorado, believes that eliminating the sales tax on soda would be a slight step backwards since soda carries empty calories and no nutrients. She said that obesity rates are climbing in Colorado particularly among children and that soda is playing a role in that increase. But she acknowledged that levying a tax on soda has shown to have little-to-no proven effect on reducing obesity rates, and that tackling obesity is a complex issue that requires multiple tactics. Balmer added that many juices, for example, have just as much sugar as soda but aren’t taxed. Ferrandino, however, argued that generating additional revenue for the state budget and its cash-strapped schools is more important than subsidizing the soda industry. “It’s tough to argue that we should give tax breaks for soda...when we can’t put pencils and books in kids hands,” he said. HB 1162 is scheduled to be debated in the House Finance Committee on Wednesday. Balmer believes he has the votes to move the bill out of the committee.

Sunday’s story “Jay Henry, Mike Kloser face off” reported that Christian Kloser finished in fifth place, when he actually took fourth. It also reported that Mike Kloser took a break to eat a snack, when he actually took the snack while still on his bike.

Tuition increase coming for CMC Your Choice NEWS

In-district students will pay $4 more per credit hour By Matt Minich Mountaineer Editor Students at Colorado Mountain College will pay more for tuition, starting this summer. The college’s board of trustees voted to approve a tuition increase for the next school year. In-district students will pay $4 more per credit hour, in-state students will pay $7 more and out of state students will pay $23 more. The increase will bring the tuition of the average in-district student to $53 per credit hour, or about $1,590 a year. “We will still be the best value for higher education in Colorado,” CMC Public Information Officer Debra Crawford said. In a press release announcing the increases, officials said the increases were necessary to combat a combination of shrinking property taxes and cuts in state support for higher education. “With two of our three main sources of revenue – property taxes and state funding – declining,” said Stan Orr, board president, “tuition will be under pressure to

make up part of the shortfall.” In a conference call yesterday, CMC President Stan Jensen said he expects the school to take in about $10 million less in revenue that it did last year. From the tuition cuts, he hopes the school will take in an additional $1.4 million. The remaining shortfall will not significantly affect the day-to-day operation of the college, Jensen said, but will affect CMC’s ability to fund any new building. “We will sacrifice new building for a couple of years,” he said. “To put an emphasis on serving a growing student population.” At the same meeting, the board of trustees voted to approve a $22.9 million building and secondary road in Steamboat Springs and the purchase of an office space in downtown Glenwood Springs. All projects build by CMC are saved for and paid for from the capital fund, not bonded, so the new construction is essentially already paid for, said Crawford. That approach to new building is the reason the college will be able to weather the coming financial storm, Jensen [See TUITION HIKE, page 9]

Miller is a member of that team. Rearick would then also throw a nod to young athletes like Travis Ganong (Squaw Valley, CA), Tommy Ford (Bend, OR) and Nolan Kasper (Warren, VT) who produced impressive performances in their first World Championships. The women’s team reciprocated as Laurenne Ross (Klamath Falls, OR) placed a stunning 10th in the downhill. In retrospect, the Garmisch podium surprised as Tina Maze (GS) and Austrians Elisabeth Goergl (super G/ downhill), Anna Fenninger (super combined) and Marlies Schild (slalom) claimed the first major championships of their career. Innerhofer, Canadian Erik Guay (downhill) and Jean-Baptiste Grange of France (slalom) did the same on the men’s side. Austria would end up toppling the overall medal count with seven. Only Ligety and Norwegian Aksel Lund Svindal (super combined) triumphed when expected with Audi FIS Alpine World Cup favorites Ivica Kostelic of Croatia, Maria Riesch of Germany, Carlo Janka and Didier Cuche of Switzerland and Vonn missing the top step. Titles will again be decided March 14-20 when the World Cup Finals are staged in Lenzerheide, Switzlerland. Until then, there are three more weekends for the World’s best to stake their claim. World Cup racing resumes Friday, Feb. 25 in Are, Sweden for women and Saturday, Feb. 26 in Bansko, Bulgaria for men . Universal Sports has daily coverage of every race.




with only one other American skier to have reached the mark – Miller. And while Miller did not podium in Garmisch, it would be unfair to say he didn’t perform. In the men’s super G, he won three of four timing intervals skiing most of the gnarly slope with one pole before eventually losing his balance a few gates shy of the finish. Gold medalist Christof Innerhofer of Italy said afterward that Miller inspired him to charge. “At a World Championships you have the atmosphere to do something special,” said Miller before that race. “If you can use that to build your inspiration, then you’re capable of using it to get a performance out of yourself that you wouldn’t be capable of getting any other way.” Miller would later win the second run of giant slalom that helped propel Ligety to victory by radioing exactly what he learned to the top of the slope. “Medals are great, but I’m not in this for the medals,” said men’s Head Coach Sasha Rearick after the Worlds closed. “I’m in this to get the guys to go faster. It’s all about hard work, that’s what I’ve always been about. Behind Ted’s gold is a lot of hard work from every member of this team, that’s what I’m proud of.”

Let’s get personal..

Vonn’s medal part of historic $ run for United States at Worlds

Despite the fact she didn’t do a lot of racing due to a recent concussion, Vail’s Lindsey Vonn can take comfort in the fact that she will always be a part of the collective three medals the U.S. Ski Team earned at the 2011 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships. Ted Ligety and Julia Mancuso were also part of the history made in the 13 days of World Championship action that wrapped up Sunday. Before last week, only five Americans had won both Olympic and World Championship gold in alpine skiing. Vonn is one of them, so is Bode Miller. Also on the list are skiing legends Barbara-Ann Cochran, Phil Mahre and Picabo Street. On Friday, Feb. 18, Ligety joined the club. “It feels incredible to solidify your name in the sport especially with two runs that I’m proud of,” said Ligety. “Being on some level with the names on that list is pretty cool, but I feel like I’ve got 10 more years left in me and a lot more speed that I still need to find. I’m looking toward the World Cup overall title.” Fourth after the first run, Ligety stood in the Garmisch giant slalom start and knew he had to perform. As a two-time World Cup giant slalom champion and convincing winner of the first three GS races of the season, everyone looked at him to win. “I sorta blocked it all out,” he said. “Pressure is always there for every athlete and probably we put more pressure on ourselves than anyone. But I knew that I did everything I could to be in a position to win. I had worked harder in the off season than ever, I knew my skis were fast and I knew I had the ability to be fast.” With his parents in the finish, he was fast. Then he watched as the top three finishers from the first run failed to match. Even before opening ceremony, Mancuso knew winning a medal during the early competition would be a battle. Expecting warm weather, organizers had worked the Kandahar speed track into titanium hard snow that wound through a forest of dark turns riddled with country road washboard. Rugged was the beginning of a much longer definition. “It’s not like every other race on the World Cup,” Mancuso said before the opening super G. “I like to think of it as a challenge. I like to ski the hill and see what I have to conquer.” Head Coach Alex Hoedlmoser said it would take a champion to podium in the race. He was right. Mancuso finished five hundredths of a second from gold, adding a fourth medal to her World Championship total – a total only Vonn and 1989 combined gold medalist Tamara McKinney have reached. Midway through the Championships, Vonn upped the ante. Her silver medal performance in downhill notched career Worlds podium number five and matched her

At Riva Ridge, the men of the 10th took a German reconnaissance position during a nighttime assault. Because the terrain around their post was so steep and icy, the Germans assumed no enemy could approach it, so they left their patrols light. Because of their training at Camp Hale, though, the 10th Mountain Division was able to not only ascend the icy ridge, but also to take the post with few casualties. After their traditional run down Riva Ridge, the men will meet near the Eagle’s Nest at the top of Avanti Express, where a pilot with the Army Reserve will land a Black Hawk helicopter before lunch.

Vail coffee owner picked to help run non-profit Vail Mountain Coffee & Tea Company (VMCT) announced yesterdau that one of its owners, Craig Arseneau, was appointed to the Board of Directors of Socially Conscious Coffee (SCC), a Denver-based nonprofit organization dedicated to creating sustainable prosperity with coffee harvesters in Brazil, their families, and their communities through education, health care, and environmental stewardship. “Community giving has always been an integral part of VMCT, so I’m excited to be an integral part of SCC,” said Arseneau. “It’s a high quality, dedicated organization that has provided incredible opportunity for harvest communities in Brazil.” Arseneau hails from Sterling, Illinois and graduated from the University of Denver in 1985 with a B.S. in Business and Hotel Management. He then moved to Boston to work for the Stouffer Hotel and Resort Group, where he met VMCT co-owner Chris Chantler. Arseneau moved on to do marketing for the Coffee Development Group (CDG), a non-profit organization funded by the International Coffee Organization (ICO) in London. Here, Arseneau gained extensive insight and experience working from the farmer to the consumer. Arseneau, with co-owner Chris Chantler, founded the The Daily Grind Coffee Company in 1989. The Daily Grind grew to four coffee houses four years, indicating the need for a premium coffee roaster. Vail Mountain Coffee Roasters opened in 1997 as a leading, premium coffee roasting company. With the addition of tea to the product line in 1995, the entity became Vail Mountain Coffee & Tea Company. Arseneau serves as President of VMCT, overseeing all areas of operations, service, distribution and coffee buying. Socially Conscious Coffee (SCC) was created by


Denver resident Stephanie Palm Neves in 2002 to assist coffee harvesters and laborers in Brazil, the world’s largest coffee producer. The majority of these workers and their families live in remote and underdeveloped regions with limited infrastructure, schools, services, and transportation. The coffee harvesters work very hard, but historically, had few opportunities to gain an education, obtain health care, or develop diverse workforce skills needed to build a better future for themselves and their children. Without assistance, these families would continue to face a cycle of illiteracy, poor health, and poverty. In 2004 SCC built a school and community center, called the Centro Rural Educafé in Portuguese, in Bahia, Brazil. By building a school on a coffee farm, SCC educates the region’s children and provides community education on health and hygiene practices, disease prevention, water and food safety, and environmental stewardship. For more information, visit “Craig brings a wealth of experience, leadership and expertise to our Board of Directors from his work in the industry and at Vail Mountain Coffee & Tea Company,” stated Stephanie Palm Neves, Executive Director of SCC. “He is a huge asset and we are very excited to bring him into the SCC family.” VMCT and SCC have been working together to raise money for SCC since 2007. In that time, VMCT has donated nearly $6,000 to the organization, which has helped to fund teacher salaries and school supplies.

Libyan pilots seek asylum in Malta

Two Libyan air force jets landed in Malta on Monday and their pilots asked for political asylum amid a bloody crackdown on anti-government protesters in Libya, a military source said. The two Mirage jets landed at Malta International Airport shortly after two civilian helicopters landed carrying seven people who said they were French. A military source familiar with the situation said the passengers had left in such a hurry that only one had a passport. The source, who insisted he not be identified further, said the jet pilots — both Libyan air force colonels — had communicated from the air that they wanted political asylum. They had left from a base near Tripoli and had flown low over Libyan airspace to avoid detection, the source said.

Libyan UN diplomats say Gadhafi should step down

Libya’s ambassadors at the United Nations are calling for leader Moammar Gadhafi to step down as the country’s ruler. Deputy Ambassador Ibrahim Dabbashi said Monday that if Gadhafi does not reliqniquish power, “the Libyan people will get rid of him.” Dabbashi urged the international community to impose a no-fly zone over Libya to prevent mercenaries, weapons and other supplies from reaching Gadhafi and his security forces. Dabbashi also said he was not resigning. The diplomat says the Libyan delegation is also urging the International Criminal Court to investigate possible crimes against humanity committed against the Libyan people during the current protests.

An Iraqi al-Qaida operative was believed to be one of 15 militants killed in two U.S. missile strikes in Pakistan’s tribal belt along the Afghan border Monday, Pakistani intelligence officials said. The officials said the man, identified as Abu Zaid alIraqi, handled the terrorist group’s finances in Pakistan. He was not known to be on any published U.S. lists of wanted al-Qaida leaders, and U.S. officials do not normally acknowledge the existence of the CIA-led missile program or talk about who is being killed. The two strikes, coming roughly 24 hours apart, were the first since the arrest of a U.S. citizen who shot two Pakistanis in late January. There had been speculation that Washington had put a hold on the disputed tactic while it pressured Pakistan to release the American, saying he has diplomatic immunity and acted in selfdefense.

In the first strike, which occurred overnight Monday, three missiles hit a house in the village of Kaza Panga in the Azam Warsak area of the South Waziristan tribal region, said two intelligence officials.

Federal, state and local debt now bigger than total economy

The Wall Street Journal reports that the total of all U.S. debts now exceeds the total worth of the U.S. economy. The numbers are reminiscent of those of post-World War II America, when the national debt was almost 122 percent of the gross domestic product. While the debt quickly shrank in the years after the war, experts project the current national debt to balloon for several years, and President Barack Obama said he expects it to reach record levels.

Japan digging for remains of WWII human experiments

Japan began excavations Monday at a former army medical school to search for human remains linked to a notorious World War II program that allegedly conducted biological warfare in China and live experiments on foreign prisoners of war. There is no certainty the excavation will unearth anything, but it is a sign that the government is open to the possibility of facing its long-kept wartime secrets, including the experiments conducted by the military’s shadowy Unit 731. Its activities have never been officially acknowledged by the government even though historians and participants have documented them. Monday’s excavation is the first government probe of the Tokyo site. It follows a former nurse’s revelation that she helped bury body parts there as American forces began occupying the capital at the end of the war. “If the bones or organs with traces of live medical experiments are found, the government would have to admit a wartime medical crime,” said Yasushi Torii, head of a civil group investigating the case for decades. “This is a start, although we probably need more evidence to prove Unit 731’s role,” said Torii, as he watched a shovelling machine and workers using handheld shovels carefully dig part of the plot. From its wartime base in Japanese-controlled Harbin in northern China, Unit 731 and related units injected war prisoners with typhus, cholera and other diseases that they mass-produced to research germ warfare, according to historians and former unit members. Unit 731 also is believed to have performed vivisections and to have frozen prisoners to death in endurance tests.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Oil hits 2-year high

Oil prices have reached their highest in two years, Bloomberg reports, reaching $105 per gallon because of unrest in the Middle East. Muammar Qaddafi’s son warned the world Sunday that a Libyan uprising could threaten the security of the country’s oil wealth. Libyan security forces killed 200 protestors that day, human rights groups report. The unrest is not just causing an increase in prices, but is creating considerable instability in prices. As officials from more than 90 nations including Saudi Arabian Oil Minister Ali al-Naimi and U.S. Deputy Energy Secretary Daniel Poneman gather in Riyadh today to seek ways of curbing fluctuations, oil’s 20-day historical volatility has risen to 29.4, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. It was at 12.6, an all-time low, at the end of December. U.S. futures for April jumped as much as 4.5 percent yesterday as violence spread in Libya, holder of Africa’s biggest crude reserves.

Michigan to close half of Detroit public schools

State education officials have ordered the emergency financial manager for Detroit Public Schools to immediately implement a plan that balances the district’s books by closing half its schools. The Detroit News says the financial restructuring plan will increase high school class sizes to 60 students and consolidate operations. State superintendent of public instruction Mike Flanagan says in a Feb. 8 letter that the state plans to install another financial manager who must continue to implement Emergency Financial Manager Robert Bobb’s plan after he leaves June 30. Flanagan’s said approval of Bobb’s plan means the district can’t declare bankruptcy. Bobb filed his deficit elimination plan with the state in January, saying it would wipe out the district’s $327 million deficit by 2014. Bobb was hired in March 2009 by then-Gov. Jennifer Granholm.

$290 million offered for Blockbuster

Movie rental chain Blockbuster Inc. said on Monday it signed a $290 million deal to be brought out of bankruptcy by a group of investors. The offer from Cobalt Video Holdco LLC is a socalled “stalking horse” bid, which Blockbuster hopes will attract other bidders who will offer more.

[From page 1]

The Cobalt group includes funds managed by Monarch Alternative Capital LP, Owl Creek Asset Management LP, Stonehill Capital Management LLC and Varde Partners Inc. They all hold secured Blockbuster debt, so they stand to benefit if someone else buys the company for more than the amount they paid for their Blockbuster debt. The deal needs approval from the federal bankruptcy judge overseeing Blockbuster’s reorganization. The company said other bidders would have 30 days after the process is approved by the judge to submit their own bids. That would prompt an auction, the company said. Blockbuster said it aims to close a final sale by April 20. Earlier this month, the Wall Street Journal reported that Blockbuster planned to put itself up for sale after a disagreement with its creditors. Blockbuster didn’t address that directly on Monday. But Chairman and CEO Jim Keyes said in a statement that an auction “will allow for the consolidation of ownership of the company to those with a clear and focused vision for Blockbuster’s future.” Blockbuster used to be the dominant U.S. movie rental chain. But it lost money for years as customers shifted to Netflix Inc., video on demand and DVD rental kiosks. When it filed for bankruptcy protection in September it was down to 3,000 stores. In December, the chain said it planned to close 182 stores in the next few months.

It’s isotonic, vitamin-rich and has natural regenerative powers

Beer: It’s not just for couch potatoes anymore. A Bavarian brewmeister is touting its non-alcoholic beer as the latest sport drink for athletes, handing it out at the finish line of sporting events and touting its regenerative benefits. Unlike Gatorade, Erdinger Alkoholfrei is served up with a frothy head, and it comes in one color—a golden hue. The company touts the beverage as an isotonic, vitamin-rich, no-additive beverage with natural regenerative powers that help athletes recover from a workout. In other words, it’s carbohydrate-loaded refreshment without the alcoholic buzz of beer or the jitters caused by some energy drinks. “It’s a very healthy product,” says the US manager for Erdinger. But note: Alkoholfrei still contains less than 0.5% alcohol, making it a no-no in some states for anyone under 21.

According to the Denver Post, the Carmelo Anthony trade saga is finally over. In breaking the story on its website last night, the Post cited Nuggets guard J.R. Smith as well as several unnamed sources in confirming the trade, which sent Melo, Chauncey Billups, Shelden Williams, Anthony Carter and Renaldo Balkman to the Knicks for Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Danilo Gallinari, Timofey Mozgov, the Knicks 2014 first-round draft pick, the Warriors’ 2012 second-round pick, the Warriors’ 2013 second-round pick and $3 million in cash. “I mean, it’s just rebuilding first. We gotta go forward with what we got. And try to do the best we can in the playoffs,” Smith was quoted saying by the Post.

It “consoles my heart to know he’s in a better place WE WILL ALL MISS YOU!” Troy Jackson battled weight problems his entire career but became a popular fixture on the streetball circuit, where he carried the nickname “Escalade” because of his size. He was listed at 6-foot-10 inches and 375 pounds while being a part of the And1 Mixtape tour in 2002. Louisville coach Rick Pitino, who coached Mark Jackson with the New York Knicks and coached against Troy Jackson while at Kentucky in the 1990s, said he was “saddened” by Troy’s passing. “He was a young man to lose his life and our prayers go to the Jackson family,” Pitino said.

Colorado Avalanche trying to snap longest losing streak in history

Leading scorer Matt Duchene set to return to play Tonight the Avs head to St. Louis to take on the Blues, a team they have beat six straight times. If they fail to defeat them seven straight times, it will be their 11th loss in a row. The 10-loss skid the Avalanche is on right now is the longest losing streak the team has endured since moving to Colorado in the mid ‘90s. In attempting to snap the streak, they will have the help of Matt Duchene, who is back on the ice after injuring his hand recently. The team’s leading scorer can hold a hockey stick again, more than enough progress for the All-Star forward to pronounce himself fit for a return tonight in St. Louis. Duchene sat out two games after hurting his left hand in a 9-1 loss to Calgary last week. He’s eager to climb back into the lineup, especially with the team mired in

ATHLETIC STUFF slump that began shortly after Peter Forsberg joined the squad to test out his chronically injured foot and continued once the former NHL MVP ended his comeback bid after just two games. Benching players hasn’t worked. Neither has shifting around the lines or calling up minor leaguers. So Colorado turned to an even more drastic solution — shaking up its roster by pulling off two big trades late last week. First, Colorado swapped one scuffling goaltender for another, picking up Brian Elliott from the Ottawa Senators for Craig Anderson. Then, the Avalanche acquired defenseman Erik Johnson, the top pick in the 2006 draft, and Jay McClement from none other than the Blues for rising youngsters Chris Stewart and Kevin Shattenkirk.

Colorado Avalanche center Matt Duchene, right, skates to the bench after scoring a goal against the Nashville Predators in the third period of an NHL hockey game on Saturday, Feb. 12, 2011, in Nashville, Tenn. Duchene is set to return to the Avalanche starting lineup tonight after suffering a hand injury. AP photo.

10-game skid, the longest winless streak since the franchise moved to the Mile High City before the 199596 season. “Sometimes in this league, when it rains it pours,” Duchene said after practice yesterday. “Half of them we played pretty good hockey and could’ve won the games. It’s disappointing. “It’s hard to be detached from (the team) and have to sit in the background and watch it. But it’s good to be back.” The Avalanche have tried everything to slip out of a

LenDale White rips former coach

LenDale White gave his former coach Pete Carroll a 4-letter message via TMZ over the weekend. As White was leaving Voyeur nightclub in Hollywood, TMZ asked him about reports that certain NBA players were complaining about a controversial sneaker. “If it ain’t Chauncey Billups or Kobe Bryant ... f*** ‘em,” White said. “Or if it ain’t the Denver Broncos or Chris Johnson ... f*** ‘em. Or D-Byrd ... or the Trojans ... minus Pete Carroll -- f*** you.” When the TMZ cameraman said, “You love the Trojans” ... LenDale continued, “Except for Pete Carroll. Minus Pete Carroll I have Trojan love.” White was first coached by Carroll at USC before moving to the NFL, where he was a member of Carroll’s team once again in Seattle. He lasted about a month as a Seahawk before Carroll waived him.
