EVES first IB school in district

Program brings ‘21st century skills’ to local elementary students By Phil Lindeman Mountaineer Staff Writer In a brick-lined hallway near the kindergarten classrooms at Eagle Valley Elementary School, a bulletin board is set at knee height for little eyes. It is covered with a cadre of superhero-like characters, each with a set of student names scrawled across the top. The characters, drawn with elongated arms and wide grins marked in a rainbow of crayon

lines, could easily be mistaken for an art project, or something done during free time on a particularly snowy day. What sets these drawings apart is how they were created. Groups of three or four students worked together to give life to each fully formed person, complete with a name, face, and realistic traits. Teacher comments made in bold, die-cut letters line the top of the board and detail the process: “We used coop-

Trouble continues at nuclear plant

A possible breach at Japan’s troubled nuclear plant escalated the crisis anew yesterday, two full weeks after an earthquake and tsunami first compromised the facility. The development suggested radioactive contamination may be worse than first thought, with tainted groundwater the most likely consequence. The uncertain nuclear situation again halted work at the Fukushima Dai-ichi complex, where authorities have been scrambling to stop the overheated facility from leaking dangerous radiation. Low levels of radiation have been seeping out since the March 11 quake and tsunami knocked out the plant’s cooling system, but a breach could mean a much larger release of contaminants. The most likely consequence would be contamination of the groundwater. “The situation today at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant is still very grave and serious. We must remain vigilant,” a somber Prime [See THE UPDATE, page 16]

Black bears becoming active

Department of Wildlife advises locals to lock garbage

New Furniture Daily!

970-949-0989 222 Chapel Place Avon, CO 81620

Consignment Furniture... Redefined

By Matt Minich Mountaineer Editor In Colorado’s hills and valleys, thousands of slumbering giants are stirring back to life. It’s spring, and that doesn’t just mean wet snow and sunny skies; it means the end of a long nap for some of the state’s furrier residents – bears. Most bears in Colorado wake up from hibernation some time in midApril, but officials with the Division of Wildlife have reported activities from early risers in Boulder, Aspen and Crested Butte. No animals have been reported in the Vail Valley yet, but officials are still urging residents to prepare for their arrival. “I was driving through residential areas last week and noticed many trash bins without locks and other poor practices that can eventually lead bears to these homes,” Aspen District Wildlife Manager Kevin Wright said in a press release. “We really want people to take care of their trash and other attractants so we don’t have to deal with problems later.” Bears have a habit of rooting through garbage bins and dumpsters, so homes and businesses should be sure to lock theirs up. If a bear does get access to garbage, the results aren’t just messy – they are often tragic. “Bad bears aren’t born,” said Perry Wills, wildlife manager for the Eagle and Roaring Fork Valleys. “We make them.” Bears who get used to the free

side your home, and always feed the pets inside. Bird feeders and bird baths are known to attract bears, so put them in places that are harder to reach. Make sure you have a grease trap for your barbeque, and always scrape and clean the grill after each use. Warm weather is bringing Colorado’s black bears out of hibernation. Homeowners are encouraged to lock their trash cans.

meals they find in trash cans are often unable or unwilling to then find their own food in the wild. Those “problem bears” that seek out human areas time and time again can have trouble fending for themselves, or can be put down by DOW staff. “We have a two-strike policy with bears,” Wills said. When a bear is caught after a conflict with humans it’s tagged and released back into the wild. If that same bear is involved in another incident, it is put down. Numbers vary, but the DOW often euthanizes more than 20 bears each year because of conflicts with humans. To keep bears away from homes, property and pets, DOW officials suggest keeping trash cans indoors until trash day. If you don’t have a spot to store garbage, there are many places that sell bear-resistant trash cans. Regardless of where you keep the trash, clean the cans with ammonia and seal garbage in plastic bags to get rid of odors. Don’t leave cat or dog food out-

Bear attacks They’re not common in Colorado, but they do happen. Bears in the Vail Valley are typically Black Bears, and are not known for attacking humans. Attacks in the area are not unheard of, though. Just last summer, 25-year-old Justin Young was attacked by a Black Bear while working on a construction project in East Vail. Young was not seriously inured in the attack, but did come away with some scratches and a black eye. In August of 2009, 74-year-old Donna Munson met with much worse luck when she confronted a bear near her home in Ouray County. Munson had been feeding bears at her secluded home, and was trying to defend a small bear from a larger one when she was killed and eaten. DOW officials say the best way to keep safe from black bears is to keep them from eating human foods. If you do find yourself in a confrontation with one of the animals, experts advise you to stand tall, and calmly back away. If attacked, fight back by hitting the bear in the eyes or nose.

Gravel pit could expand under baseball diamonds Distinctly Delicious LaFarge willing to pay $3.9M to replace Eagle sports complex By Matt Minich Mountaineer Editor Owners of the LaFarge gravel pit in Eagle want to pay Eagle County more than $3.9 million to dig up the baseball fields on the county fairgrounds. The fields are perched right on the edge of the LaFarge pit, and the money from the deal would pay for a new set of facilities south of the Eagle County Animal Shelter. According to a staff report compiled by the county’s planning department, the permit LaFarge is applying for would not allow them to begin digging in the fields until the new ones are completed. It also requires the company to submit annual reports on their plans to restore the area, which will still be owned by Eagle County.

The county’s planning department found the operation to be in compliance with all requirements for the permit to expand the operation. Included in the staff report are emails from officials with the Town of Eagle, Division of Wildlife and ECO Eagle Valley Trails, none of which address any serious concerns with the project. Eagle County and LaFarge have discussed the company’s use of the fairgrounds for several years, Commissioner Jon Stavney said. It’s not yet clear how long the mining will go on, but the permit LaFarge has applied for would not expire until 2027. Before the economic downturn, Stavney said, LaFarge was mining gravel fast enough to clear the supply under the ball fields in five years, but a drop in demand stretched that

Huskies dominate Devils Mens lacrosse team wins by 13 points By Brian Alexander Mountaineer Staff Writer As the sun popped out of the clouds yesterday evening in Edwards, it must have awoken the Battle Mountain Huskies boys lacrosse team. Facing off against down valley rival Eagle Valley Devils, the Huskies controlled the opening face off, coming out aggressive with four early scoring opportunities in the first three and a half minutes of the contest, only to come up empty. With snow dusting the field and blustering winds howling, the sun made a surprise appearance from behind the clouds halfway through the first period. And once it was out, the Huskies went on a scoring barrage, (perhaps because they could then see the goal better) scoring three quick goals in a one minute span. It started with a Christian Nichols goal with four minutes left in the 12 minute period and finished with a Reeve Sanders put away to go up 3-0 with three minutes to go. The goal sandwiched between those two was a Matt Granzow spectacular one man show, taking the face off from the middle of the field and knifing through the defenders to rip in a shot to the back of the net only eight seconds after the first goal of the game. That three goal exchange deflated the Devils, as their early physical play at the beginning of the game

became a little more nonchalant and allowed for another Battle Mountain score with 30 seconds to play in the opening period. The first quarter of play ended with the Huskies on top 4-0. With the sun still shining down on the field, Battle Mountain started the second period much the same as they ended the first, scoring a goal to extend to a 5-0 lead early after EVHS was called for an illegal stick penalty in between the periods. The Huskies wouldn’t stop there, adding on four more scores to jump out to a 9-0 lead with 4:30 left to play in the first half. Chris Libertini scored two of the goals in that stretch for Battle Mountain, but after the Huskies got called for a penalty for pushing

from behind, Eagle Valley finally found their scoring opportunity. The Devils charged the net, throwing a couple of shots at goal with one finally finding the back of the net, ending Eagle Valley’s scoring drought with 3:16 left in the half making it 9-1. Any hope the Devils had from the goal was erased when Timmy Liccardi of Battle Mountain scored in the final minute of the half making it 10-1 heading into the intermission. During halftime the sun fell back behind the clouds, bringing back the chill from the start of the game, but it wouldn’t cool off the Huskies as they’d build on their lead. Thanks to four goals, including two by [See LAX, page 12]

Demons defeat Huskies

Battle Mountain girls lacrosse season begins By Brian Alexander Mountaineer Staff Writer The start of the 2011 Battle Mountain girls lacrosse season was last night. Unfortunately for the Huskies, it didn’t go as planned. Hosting the Durango Demons under the lights in Edwards, the Huskies fought hard but the speed of the Demons was too much to handle, as Battle Mountain fell by a final of 14-5. Durango would get on the scoreboard first after speedster Flor Chacon scored her first of three goals on the night. The Demons hopped out to a three goal lead in the first 10 minutes of the half, until Battle Mountain’s Clare Baker raced down the field out of a timeout to get the Huskies on the board cutting into Durango’s lead at 3-1. The Demons scored the next three goals, extending the lead to 6-1 over the next four minutes, but Battle Mountain wouldn’t give up. Rylee McMillen scored the Huskies second goal of the game, making it 6-2 with a little more than 10 minutes to play in the half. Durango added a pair of quick back-to-back goals with six minutes to go in the half, but Baker would answer for the Hus-

kies. Baker scored her second goal of the game with less than five minutes to play in the first to cut the lead to five at 8-3. The speed of Durango would rear its ugly face once or twice again as the Demons added a pair of goals late in the half to extend their lead to 10-3 at half. Battle Mountain’s deficit would grow larger throughout the second half, with Durango scoring the first four goals and ballooning their lead to eleven at 14-3 with less than minutes to play in the game. But the Huskies weren’t done fighting, and although a win was most likely out of the picture, Battle Mountain kept coming at the Demons. After a few scoring opportunities didn’t come through for the Huskies, Alex Lee wouldn’t be denied as she put the ball in the back of the net, making it 14-4. Battle Mountain would get one last goal from Leala King with a minute and a half to go in the game, but that was the final straw for the Huskies, losing to the Demons 14-5. The good news for Battle Mountain is they don’t have to wait long to try and avenge their loss to the Demons, because the Huskies and Demons rematch today in Edwards at 11 a.m.

schools in the U.S. only 12 years ago. IB began as a way to prepare teens for university courses. Today, the curriculum is tailored to students as young as 3 years old. For the kindergarteners who dreamed up the hand-drawn heroes, art and writing were taught as one and the same, all encompassed by group communication. According to EVES Principal Monica Lammers, this brings â&#x20AC;&#x153;21st century skillsâ&#x20AC;? to the youngest learners in the Vail Valley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of the IB program is based around a trans-disciplinary approach,â&#x20AC;? Lammers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we read and we write, we go through social studies or science and do both at the same time. Those skills arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t segregated throughout the day.â&#x20AC;?

Four years in the making Along with Lammers and 29 teachers, the students at EVES have been immersed in the IB process for nearly four years. In 2008, just a year after becoming principal, Lammers applied for a $125,000 â&#x20AC;&#x153;innovative grantâ&#x20AC;? from the Eagle County School District. Meadow Mountain Elementary School and Minturn Middle School also tweaked their curriculum to include â&#x20AC;&#x153;expeditionary learning,â&#x20AC;? where numerous field trips and community projects are a

core part of learning. Lammers went through an IB program as a high school student in Bangkok. Exposure to the system at a young age convinced her it was the best way to protect students by keeping needed subjects off the chopping block. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sad to think the things that get cut first are the same things that could keep some kids in the system,â&#x20AC;? Lammers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kids can be creative when you give them the space. But unfortunately, we squelch that at times.â&#x20AC;? Lammersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fears take on poignan-

cy in light of the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $5.6 million budget shortfall. The next fiscal year is expected to be even worse and according to Tiffany Myers, the grants administrator for Eagle County School District, grants like the one EVES received no longer exist. The Eagle County School District doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t require a certain number of IB or expedition-based programs. Individual schools shoulder funding for such unique courses, often in the form of PTA support or budget shifting. Lammers spearheaded the process by receiving the grant and rallying district and teacher support. Both were enthusiastic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The foundation IB is built on gets kids thinking at a higher level,â&#x20AC;? said Heather Eberts, the director of curriculum for Eagle County School District. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It shows parents, teachers, and other schools you can have children learning the same content, but through a unique approach.â&#x20AC;? Eberts claims the district would consider a similar program at the middle or high school level if approached. Despite the prospect of rigorous training, including double the number of after-school hours and a total reworking of the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s curriculum, the teachers at EVES embraced the opportunity.

----------------------------------------------------------“I’ve seen the kids getting more involved in the units of study,” said Wendy Mann, a third grade teacher at EVES who has been in Eagle for 15 years. “They take more of an active approach by asking questions as opposed to just expecting answers.” Mann’s class is currently working with chick eggs to learn about the life cycle. In IB curriculum, subjects are tied together in two ways: themes and central ideas. Her students use a theme, “How the World Works,” to explore the central idea, “all living things have a life cycle.” As they gather around an egg incubator, the third graders record everything in their “inquiry journals,” notebooks that become like added limbs. They draw what they see, write questions about the eggs, and make predictions about what will happen. As opposed to reading about the life cycle in a textbook, the journals combine art, writing, and critical thinking in one process. For Mann and other teachers, financial instability at the district level is a worry. The IB board reviews schools every three years and can strip the certification if benchmarks aren’t met. Such evaluations cost money, but all are convinced the program can survive. “As a staff, we would do everything we can to protect IB,” Lammers said. “Teachers put in enough extra effort and time that they say, ‘We can’t teach in another environment.”

A welcome alternative Although group work is a large portion of the IB program, it doesn’t shun testing; Mann said it gives students the

[From page 1]

tools to find answers rather than rely on a teacher, which in turn is vital for mandated tests, such as the statewide CSAPs many students recently finished. “I believe this approach is helping kids become more responsible for their learning,” Mann said. “If they choose instead of being told what to learn, they find out about things in a way that makes them lifelong learners.” CSAP is a contested program in the state. Since scores and results often determine the amount of state funding individual schools receive, many teachers feel pressured to teach solely for the test. The IB approach has produced noticeable results, at least in traditional terms. In 2009, the first year EVES teachers began using IB methods consistently, the number of third graders who scored proficient or higher on the math portion of CSAP jumped 10 percent over 2008. Lammers has set high goals for the students and teachers of EVES, and everyone has been waiting for it to become official. Earlier this year, the school received word it was accepted by the IB board. Its new name: Eagle Valley Elementary IB World School. And while the efforts show in the classroom and test scores, students already bring their learning home. Along with the newsletters that accompany each new unit, “Our kids are starting to drive their parents crazy because they’re asking so many questions,” Lammers said. “But I have to tell [the parents] it’s what we want. The IB program is an opportunity to extend their learning past the four walls.”

Avon PD seeks ‘Slek’ tagger The Avon Police are looking for a local mischief-maker who has been defacing property by spray painting enigmatic words and symbols. According to a release from the APD, the crimes took place some time between 5 p.m. Wednesday and 7 a.m. Thursday. During that time, someone spray painted the word “SLEK” on the concrete pillars of the underground parking lot at Traer Creek Plaza, and on two Bob Cats parked there. Similar graffiti has been found on several sites around Avon. Police suspect the same person spray painted a jackrabbit on some of the surfaces. The estimated damage is said to total around $7,500. According to urbandictionary. com, which provided unofficial definitions for slang words and vulgarities, “SLEK” can be defined as either a disgusting substance or a word used to describe a person who

come from cleaning the soil around a sump for used motor oil. Though the report states that there is no significant contamination of the soil or groundwater on the site, the authors do advise that the sump and the soil around it be removed. A landfill, which was dug on the property near the river and serves as a buffer against the water, should not be removed or tampered with, the report states. At a meeting earlier this month, the Open Space Advisory Committee â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the committee that has the ultimate say over the purchase â&#x20AC;&#x201C; had expressed concerns

about contamination from the landfill. According to the report, there is none. The bulk of the cleaning at the site will be conducted by the owners, who are expected to remove the dozens of junked cars from the site with heavy machinery, but the costs of soil removal will be paid by the county. Once purchased, the county hopes to use the site as a secondary access point for the Eagle County Fairgrounds across the river, and to develop it as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;passive recreationâ&#x20AC;? area for picnickers and fishermen.

All open space purchases in Eagle County are funded in part through a dedicated tax approved by voters in 2002. Revenues from that tax have created a fund of more than $22 million, which can only be legally spent on the purchase, acquisition and preservation of open space. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not yet clear how much of the $1.6 million price tag from the salvage yard will come from that fund, if any at all. That decision will be made by the Open Space Advisory Council at its April 11 meeting.

Fire on the mountains in Colorado

Colorado firefighters have contained two wildfires that at one point forced the evacuations of thousands of people on the far reaches of the Denver area. A 2.5-square-mile wildfire in the foothills west of Denver was fully contained yesterday evening. The fire started last Sunday in rug-

ged, steep terrain west of Golden, prompting the evacuation of 17 homes for a day. Crews also reined in a wildfire that erupted Thursday and quickly charred about 2.5 square miles about 35 miles southeast of Denver. Authorities ordered about 8,500 people to leave their homes, but they were allowed back that night. The fire was declared contained yesterday afternoon. Both fires are believed to be human-caused.

I’ve lived a life where I know what has worked and what hasn’t worked. Clothing is the first step to building a character.” The actor, who will launch the lifestyle brand next year, eventually hopes to expand the line to include eyewear, grooming products, athletic wear and even a fragrance. —Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

ATHLETIC STUFF morrow for a spot in Houston. NCAA action: North Carolina, Button pushing Kansas to elite 8 injury ends Kansas is now one win from returning to the Final Four for the first time since Langer’s streak of their 2008 championship. The No. 1 seed knocked off 12th- 27 straight Masters seeded Richmond 77-57 last night; they will go on to play VCU. Thomas Robinson had 12 points and 14 rebounds, and Marcus Morris scored 13 for Kansas. The Jayhawks have yet to be tested so far this tournament, winning by an average of nearly 18 points. They’re is riding an easy-looking path toward the Final Four, as they can make it to Houston next week without having beaten a seed higher than nine. If that happens, Kansas will join Michigan State in 2001 and North Carolina in 1991 as the only schools to get that far without having to beat a seed higher than nine. And only five teams have reached the Final Four by feasting on teams seeded eighth or lower, according to STATS LLC. One of those schools? The 2008 Jayhawks. Meanwhile, in other NCAA tournament action, Tyler Zeller had 27 points and 15 rebounds, and North Carolina took control early for a change, rolling to an 81-63 victory over Marquette. John Henson added 14 points and 12 rebounds, and Harrison Barnes added 20 points and six rebounds as the secondseeded Tar Heels (29-7) moved to within a game of reaching the Final Four for the third time in four years. North Carolina will face Kentucky to-

Two-time Masters champion Bernhard Langer has been forced to end his streak of 27 consecutive appearances at Augusta National this year. The reason? “Nothing sensational—you won’t believe it,” Langer said. He was riding to the beach in south Florida last fall when he came to an intersection and, with the bike still moving, reached out to push the button on the traffic signal. “I felt a sharp pain pushing the button,” Langer said. “I played three more tournaments with pain, then had six weeks off. I figured that I sprained it, and in six weeks it should be gone. But when I started again, it wasn’t gone.” An MRI didn’t immediately reveal ligament damage, and Langer taped up his thumb and won the Ace Group Classic for his 14th title on the Champions Tour. After getting another opinion, the ligament damage was revealed. He had surgery Wednesday in New York and will be in a splint for five weeks, and a full recovery is expected after about eight weeks. “It’s not a good time for it, but you can’t choose these things,” he said. Langer, who has missed the cut the last five times at the Masters, won his first green jacket in 1985, and returned

Along with missing the Masters, Langer was to defend his title April 15-17 at the Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am, and he had planned to play with Tom Lehman in the Legends of Golf. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was told not to rush it,â&#x20AC;?

Ochocinco advances to live competition in soccer tryouts

Wide receiver Chad Ochocinco has been asked by Major League Soccer team Sporting Kansas City to play in their reserve teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game on Monday. Ochocinco will play the right forward position against the Kansas City Brass, a minor league team. Ochocinco, who says he actually preferred soccer until he was persuaded to focus entirely on football after the 10th grade, began a four-day trial with the MLS team on Wednesday in part as a way to stay fit and keep busy during the NFL lockout. The Cincinnati Bengals star admitted he was rusty after so many years away from the game. He seemed nervous and a bit out of shape on his first day but a Sporting KC spokesman said he appeared much more comfortable during his second practice. Never one to avoid the spotlight, Ochocinco admitted this week that once football owners and players work out their differences, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be back running pass pat-
