Avon crime rate hits record low By Phil Lindeman Mountaineer Staff Writer Crime in Avon has been steadily decreasing for several years and in 2010 the number of serious offenses – robbery, burglary, and sex crimes, to name a few – hit rock bottom. Dubbed “Group A” crimes, reports of these offenses dropped 16 percent from 2009, for a total of 368. The number is the lowest ever recorded since the Avon Police Department started comprehensive tracking in 1997.

Police Chief credits decline to proactive patrolling, education Police Chief Bob Ticer presented the statistics to the town council last night and highlighted the biggest declines, including drops in burglary, fraud, and traffic crashes. “The statistics are good and show a lot of declines for serious crimes and traffic crashes,” Ticer said. “I’m proud of what



we’re doing.” Avon can hardly be considered a hotbed for criminal activity, and the arrest record further bolsters that reputation – the 334 total was another record low. Despite new pressure from the Gore Range DUI Task force, a county-wide effort sparked in 2009, DUI arrests dropped to

the lowest level in nearly 10 years. Ticer noted the majority of police contact around town comes from traffic stops, and nearly 70 percent result in a warning rather than a ticket or arrest. The rate for less serious crimes, such as trespassing and assault, saw a mellow decrease of 3 percent from 2009. Despite this overall cooling, crime rates did increas in some categories. Domestic violence, assault, and underage consumption rates all rose in 2010. The most eye-catching numbers in[See CRIME, page 8]

Eagle County officials have finalized their deal to buy the seven-acre salvage yard west of Eagle for more than $1.6 million. This file photo shows the property before cleanup efforts began. In total, those efforts are expected to cost as much as $60,000. See story page 2. Avery Cunliffe photo.

Eagle County taxpayers will soon own the land formerly used as a junkyard along the Eagle River west of Eagle. The Eagle County Commissioners have eyed the parcel for years, and plan to use it both an an access point to the Eagle County Fairgrounds across the river and as open space for fishermen and picnickers. The commissioners ratified a contract to buy the seven-acre parcel for $1.6 million months ago, but needed approval from the Open Space Advisory Council to use money from the county’s open space fund to buy the land. They got that approval Monday night. Different funding sources The OSAC is charged with managing the spending of the county’s $22 million open space fund, which is fed by a 2002 voter-approved tax. By law, the money can only be spent on the acquisition, preservation and maintenance of open space. At their meeting Monday night, the OSAC approved spending of $905,056 from the open space fund for the purchase of the land itself. They also approved an additional $45,000 for restoration needed to the land. That brings the total money from the open space fund to $950,056. The bulk of the remaining costs will come from Eagle County’s

Where the $1.6 million comes from • $945,056 from the open space fund for land • $45,000 from the open space fund for improvements • $573,486 from the capital improvement fund for land • $60,000 from the capital improvement fund for cleanup • $160,000 from the town of Eagle Source: Eagle County Planning Department

capital improvement fund, because a portion of the land is intended for use not as open space, but as access to the Eagle County Fairgrounds across the river. The capital improvement fund will also pay as much for the cleanup needed on the property, which an independent consulting team estimated could cost as much as $60,000. Almost all of the cleanup costs will be used removing soil around an “oil sump�, where operators of the salvage yard drained fluids from vehicles. The chemicals have leaked from the sump, and contaminated the soil, but not the groundwater. Though there are an unknown number of items buried beneath the soil of the site, there are no plans to investigate or remove them. Environmental analysts have concluded that no toxic chemicals were buried on the property. In total, the capital improvement fund will pitch $633,486 toward the purchase. The town of Eagle will also spend

$160,000 from its own open space fund. The property is not technically within the city limits, but county officials hope the town will take over the maintenance of the open space. That maintenance will probably mean little more than weed control, Eagle County Senior Planner Cliff Simonton said yesterday. In total, the purchase will cost slightly more than $1.6 million. Different uses Only about 65 percent of the land will be used as open space. That land will open up more than 3,000 feet of Brush Creek and the Eagle River to local fisherman, who Simonton said would be grateful for the opportunity. “There’s some really great fishing there,� he said, explaining that the owners, Ralph and Sherrie Seago, fished the river on their property with excellent results. The rest of the property is set aside for a vehicle or pedestrian bridge across the river to the Eagle County Fairgrounds. The use plan for the fairgrounds is far from finalized, and the $4 million the county would need to build a bridge hasn’t been found yet. At some point, they hope to build either one bridge for cars and pedestrians or separate bridges. County workers will spend the next couple of weeks finalizing the deal, but Simonton said yesterday that the numbers as outlined are final.

Avon mulls tax hikes for transit resort is willing to do, despite no formal agreement. Aside from the estimated $75,000, Avon would shoulder all other costs for operation and maintenance. Council member Chris Evans gravitated toward the second option, saying it provides the best opportunity for a long-term fix to the overall problem. Other agreed, though council member David Dantas believes fares are the best option. During public comment last month, many from the community said fares were out of the question. Similar resort towns, including Aspen and Vail, offer free service year-round. Since both proposals include a tax increase, both would require a ballot vote. Ballot issues must be approved by August, giving the council five months to reach a decision.

in-town lodges and Beaver Creek, and a restaurant shuttle from Avon Station to Beaver Creek. The option depends on an accommodation tax hike of 1.33 percent. Another option focuses on overall improvement and requires nearly 10 times the amount at $1.1 million annually. Along with skier service, it would extend service to Walmart and Buffalo Ridge. It would also add a second bus during peak travel, up from one bus currently. Along with an accommodation tax, it would increase sales taxes town-wide by 0.4 percent. According to Jennifer Strehler, the director of transportation for Avon, the second option is more “rounded.” Both budget estimates assume a donation of $75,000 from Beaver Creek, something Strehler said the

The Avon Town Council heard several proposed funding options last night to bring consistent service to the town, something it has lacked since 2005. The new plan, called Sustainable Transit and Events Project (STEP), calls for a dedicated source of funding for transit, as well a fund for special events. As of now, money for both is budgeted from the general fund. The first option under STEP calls for an additional $156,000 annually and focuses largely on ski season traffic. It would add two bus routes: a skier loop with direct service to

Huskies lose to Demons Glenwood Springs sneaks by Battle Mountain 2-0

New Furniture Daily!

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

For the second time during this girls’ varsity soccer season, Battle Mountain faced their demons, and it had nothing to do with how much time they spend texting and checking out Facebook. The Huskies battled the 5 and 1 Glenwood Springs Demons on the pitch last night in a second meeting of these two teams on the season, the first saw Glenwood walk away with a 3-1 victory on their home soil. This time they’d meet in Edwards with both teams coming off home wins, Battle Mountain beat Eagle Valley 4-1 while Glenwood Springs defeated Steamboat by the same total, 4-1. The Tuesday night affair was a defensive chess match played out soccer style on Battle Mountain’s turf. The scoreboard held a score of 0-0 for the first 74 minutes of game play of the 80 minute affair, until the Demons finally broke through. Battle Mountain came out fast, controlling possession of the ball for the first ten minutes of play, with their best scoring opportunity coming when Jenai Dinardo took the ball away from her counterpart on Glenwood, sprinted down the right hand side of the field and sent a beautiful cross back to the middle just out of the reach of her teammate. The Huskies fans were in full support, as the familiar sound of buzzing vuvuzelas rang throughout the Battle Mountain cheering section. The first half of action was a seesaw battle, seeing both teams controlling the action from time to time

with only a few scoring chances. The Demons would have the better of the scoring opportunities during the forty minute half, including a golden chance at goal when they sent a shot from in the box over the crossbar. Any other possibilities of a score were thwarted by Huskies freshman goalie Mindy Vickers. The young goalkeeper was more than game last night, stopping shot after shot until a somewhat fluke goal snuck in late in the match. The Huskies would find a scoring opportunity late in the first, when Pearl Nanin took a great lead pass

from a teammate setting up a one on one with the Demons keeper, but the goalie rushed out for the challenge making the save in the final two minutes. The Huskies and Demons went into halftime with a big goose egg on the board at 0-0. Glenwood turned up the offensive pressure to start out the second half, hammering shots at goal, but Vickers didn’t budge sending back anything that came her way to start the half. Battle Mountain found their opportunities to score off multiple corner kicks, including one that would’ve given them the first goal of the game with only eight minutes to play as a Glenwood defender would kick out a goal right before it crossed the goal line as it rolled past the Demons goalie. Unfortunately for Battle Mountain, Glenwood scored just moments later, after a loose ball got knocked out of Vickers hands and a Glenwood player was there to finish it off, making it 1-0 Demons with under six minutes to play. A similar rebound goal was scored within two minutes later for the Demons, ending any hope of extra time for the Huskies and a possibility for the win. Battle Mountain fought hard to the final whistle, but in the end, fell short to Glenwood again by a score of 2-0, falling the Huskies to 4 and 5 with 1 tie on the season. Battle Mountain’s next game is in two weeks at Eagle Valley at 6 p.m.

Dems plan to amend Colo. budget Lawmakers want to see less cuts to taxes, education By Ivan Moreno Special to the Mountaineer Colorado House Democrats unhappy with the state’s budget proposal to cut education funding are gearing up for a long fight, saying they plan to introduce three dozen amendments to a deal that was overwhelmingly approved with bipartisan support in the Senate. Democratic House Leader Rep. Sal Pace said his party will attempt Wednesday to reduce $250 million in cuts to K-12 education and amend a bill that modifies the monthly enrollment fee on a health care program for low-income children. Republican House Leader Rep. Amy Stephens criticized Democrats’ plans. “If Sal wants to get partisan to make a name for them, they’re welcome to. It’s unfortunate,” she said, later adding: “If you want to have a show for a day, by all means. I mean, you waste all of our time running all that.” Pace defended his party’s decision to try to amend the $18 billion

budget. “No, it’s not to put on a show. We’re trying to make policy here,” he said. But Democrats will have a difficult time advancing any of their amendments, because Republicans have a one-vote edge in the House. Gov. John Hickenlooper’s initially proposed cutting K-12 education funding by $332 million next year, but the proposal approved Monday in the Senate reduced the cut to $250 million. The reduction will likely prompt teacher layoffs, larger class sizes and shorter school weeks. The budget bill also cuts money for higher education. The deal struck by Senate Republicans and Democrats restores part of a tax rebate to retailers for collecting sales tax and a waiver on sales taxes on agricultural products, and eliminates a tax on software downloaded online. Stephens said that the compromise is a fair balance that reduces education cuts while trying to revamp the state’s economy by attracting businesses with the elimination of past

taxes. She said the deal has the support of Republicans who have vehemently rejected the state’s spending plans in the past and that leaders from both parties participated in the discussions. “I was involved in some discussions,” Pace said. “I ultimately said that I want to work to try to decrease the cuts to school kids, and (Democratic Senate President Brandon Shaffer) and the governor understood my position.” Pace said he would also try to delay the closing of a prison in southeastern Colorado, which is near the district he represents. Leaders in the towns and cities near the Fort Lyon Correctional Facility say the prisons closure will have a devastating impact on communities that rely on the prison for jobs. The prison was set to close Aug. 31 but lawmakers extended the date by six months. Pace said he would try to keep the prison open indefinitely or ask for another six-month extension. —This story appears courtesy The Associated Press

Rose Hill Drive consists of brothers Jake and Daniel Sproul, friend Nathan Barnes, and newest member Jimmy Stofer. After a 17-month hiatus, Rose Hill Drive has come out of hibernation and begun working on material for a new album. After forming in high school in Boulder, Colorado, Rose Hill Drive became one of the most soughtafter live bands garnering respect from critics and reverence from its peers. And it’s no secret that this band has been the talk of some legendary musicians. Rose Hill Drive has done dates with The Black Crowes, Robert Randolph, Wilco, Queens Of The Stone Age, and also performed at Bonnaroo, Red Rocks, Austin


Boulder-based rock ‘n’ roll band Rose Hill Drive will bring their killer live show to The Arrabelle at Vail Square in Lionshead tomorrow night at 6:30 p.m. for the Vail Valley Foundation’s free concert series, Bud Light Street Beat. Taking a quick break from their tour with Stone Temple Pilots, the boys of Rose Hill Drive will make their much anticipated return to the Vail Valley tomorrow. Lauded as a driving force in the revival of traditional hard rock and early metal–psychedelic, Rose Hill Drive’s raw, emotive rock has earned the group high praises from both critics and fellow musicians alike, often compared to ‘70s rock greats Led Zeppelin and Cream.

California blowin’ in the wind


Meg Hartley, PA-C, CDE, CLE

Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation requiring California utilities to get one-third of their power from renewable sources. Utilities and other electricity providers have until the end of 2020 to draw 33 percent of their power from solar panels, windmills and other renewable sources.

Obama and Boehner differ on taxes

President Obama has renewed his call to end the Bush-era tax cuts for households earning over $250,000 a year or individuals earning above $200,000. The White House has insisted that every aspect of the government must be considered as part of a serious discussion on debt, including revenues, which tends to be Washington-speak for taxes. “If the president begins the discussion by saying we must increase taxes on the American people - as his budget does - my response will be clear: Tax increases are unacceptable and a nonstarter,” House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said. “We don’t have deficits because Americans are taxed too little. We have deficits because Washington spends too much.”

---------------------------------------------------------Soviets may have lied

An FBI report kept secret for 25 years said the Soviet Union “quite likely fabricated” evidence central to the prosecution of John Demjanjuk in the retired Ohio auto worker’s Nazi war crimes trial in Germany. The newly declassified FBI field office report casts doubt on the authenticity of a Nazi ID card that is the key piece of evidence in allegations that Demjanjuk served as a guard at the Sobibor death camp in occupied Poland. Claims that the card and other evidence against Demjanjuk are Soviet forgeries have repeatedly been made by Demjanjuk’s defense attorneys. However, the FBI report provides the first known confirmation that American investigators had similar doubts.

Texas is blackened

Gov. Rick Perry took to the air Tuesday to survey some of the ravaged counties of West Texas devastated by wildfires that have blackened tens of thousands of acres, destroyed dozens of homes and left one firefighter critically injured. Perry flew in a plane over fires still burning in the rolling plains of Stonewall County with state emergency management chief Nim Kidd before appearing at a news conference at a Texas Forest Service command center in the town of Merkel in Taylor County. Perry, who grew up near the Stonewall County fire, said that

even as firefighters gained the initiative on some of the biggest fires, “Our experience tells us that we have a long way to go.”

Sacred oath broken

A jailed former Mafia boss who once ordered a payback killing in the infamous “Donnie Brasco” case made gangland history Tuesday by becoming the highest-ranking member of the city’s five Italian organized crime families to break their sacred vow of silence and testify against one of their own. Joseph Massino took the witness stand at the Brooklyn trial of Vincent “Vinny Gorgeous” Basciano, who served as one of his captains in the Bonanno crime family.

Barry Bonds is going to have a longer wait for his verdict. The jury considering four felony counts against the home run king deliberated without a conclusion for the second day Monday. The eight women and four men, who started their discussions on Friday before a weekend break, will resume work Tuesday morning. The gap between closing arguments and verdict has grown longer than the gap between Bondsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; record-tying and record-breaking home runs in 2007. The former MVP broke Hank Aaronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home run record on Aug. 7 when he hit No. 756, three days after matching Aaron. Bonds, who also holds the singleseason home run mark of 73, is charged with three counts of making false statements to a grand jury in 2003 and one count of obstruction of justice. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accused of lying when he denied receiving steroids and human growth hormone from personal trainer Greg Anderson, and for saying he allowed only doctors to give him an injection.

ATHLETIC STUFF Rockies hope rain wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cool them off

The Rockies have been in sole possession of first place for six days, which is a longer streak than they had at any point in their pennant-winning 2007 season, and if they win today, the team will match the franchiseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best road start at 5-1. And they received a little rest last night, as their game in New York was postponed by rain, and rescheduled as part of a doubleheader tomorrow, giving the rolling Rockies a rest on the road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to get an off day,â&#x20AC;? shortstop Troy Tulowitzki said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the middle of 16 days in a row, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take one if we get one. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not breaking up any momentum at all.â&#x20AC;? If it were, Tulowitzki would have plenty to lose. He has four home runs already, including a shot on Monday night that wound up providing the winning margin in Coloradoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 7-6 win. The Rockiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cleanup hitter is getting excellent protection in the lineup from No. 3 hitter Carlos Gonzalez (hitting .306) and No. 2 Daniel Herrera, who has an absurd .636 on-base percentage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tremendous bat handler,â&#x20AC;? Rockies manager Jim Tracy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The guy gets it. He understands how to work an at-bat.â&#x20AC;? The Metsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; shaky pitching staff was spared, for a night, when the game was called off in Queens shortly after the Yankees scrubbed a scheduled start against the Orioles in the Bronx. New York ranks second in the majors with 46 walks, and its bullpen has blown three saves already. Mets lefty Jonathon Niese and New Yorkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beleaguered bullpen were going to face Rockies righty Esmil Rogers. Instead, the two will face off today, pushing New Yorkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s R.A. Dickey back to the opener of the traditional doubleheader tomorrow. Chris Capuano will take the ball for the Mets in the nightcap. The Rockies havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t announced pitchers for tomorrow. Lefty Jorge De La Rosa, originally scheduled to pitch for the Rockies for tonight, will now get at least one extra day for his finger to heal. De La Rosa made an early departure April 2 due to a blood blister on the middle finger of his left hand. Although the blister has healed, De La Rosa has since developed an issue with the nail on the same finger. He went to two doctors in New York yesterday to have the finger examined, but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get any treatment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m OKâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the finger is much better,â&#x20AC;? De La Rosa said in the Rockies clubhouse last night after the game was called. De La Rosa left in the sixth inning against the Diamondbacks on April 2. He scattered three singles and held Arizona scoreless. After retiring the leadoff batter, Rockies manager Jim Tracy and head athletic trainer Keith Dugger rushed out to the mound and decided to remove De La Rosa. The blister was treated by the

LT now a low-risk sex offender

Former pro football star Lawrence Taylor, who pleaded guilty in January to sexual misconduct and patronizing a 16-year-old prostitute, was declared a low-risk sex offender yesterday, meaning there will be no photo of the former New York Giants linebacker on public online sex-offender registries. Rockland County Court Judge William Kelly said Taylor was not targeting children and was unlikely to commit the same crime. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He would be awfully foolish to go out and do this again,â&#x20AC;? the judge said. As to a posted photo, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see how thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to make the public any safer.â&#x20AC;? Taylor has said the girl told him she was 19. The former NFL standout, who lives in Florida, did not attend the hearing. Kelly designated Taylor a Level 1, or low-risk, sex offender. Rockland County prosecutor Patricia Gunning had argued for a Level 2 label. Using established guidelines, she said Taylor scored 80 points on a scale that says a sex offender has to be below 75 to get a Level 1 designation. Twenty of the points were based on the girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s age. But defense attorney Arthur Aidala said Taylor â&#x20AC;&#x153;wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t targeting a young child. He was trying to get some female companionship for that night.â&#x20AC;? He also said it was irrelevant to count Taylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conviction in a tax-return case against him in a sex-crime case. And he argued that because of Taylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fame, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Putting his picture on the Internet damages him so much more than the average person.â&#x20AC;?

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

ATHLETIC STUFF Kelly disagreed, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;My God, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been so much publicity alreadyâ&#x20AC;? that a posted photo wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter much. In the end, the judge took 20 points off Taylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s score. But he laughed at some of Aidalaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arguments. When Aidala said Taylor was a victim of a scheme to defraud him, the judge said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to keep a straight face.â&#x20AC;? And when the lawyer talked about how Taylor helped the girl by giving her $300, the judge said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was a philanthropic endeavor?â&#x20AC;? Taylor was sentenced last month to six yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; probation. The teenager made a surprise appearance at the sentencing hearing, eager to declare that he should be behind bars, but she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allowed to speak in court. Speaking outside, she denied she was a prostitute, and said Taylor should have been able to tell she had been beaten by a pimp and that she was underage when they met in a hotel room in May. Aidala said Taylor would be relieved to hear, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to be plastered all over the Internet.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This chapter of Mr. Taylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life is closed,â&#x20AC;? he added. In New York, Level 1 offenders arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t posted on a public website, but anyone who calls the state Criminal Justice Services Division can find out if a person is a sex offender. Aidala said the system was similar in Florida, where Taylor will be supervised. Taylor was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1999. He redefined the linebacker position and was selected to the NFLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 75th Anniversary All-Time Team. In 2009, he competed in ABCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dancing With the Stars.â&#x20AC;?

Josh Hamilton breaks arm, feels stupid, blames coach

We all have moments where we feel stupid, and yesterday Texas slugger Josh Hamilton experienced one that caused him to suffer a broken arm. The Rangers outfielder attempted to score from third on a foul popup near the Detroit dugout in the first inning of a game yesterday. Third baseman Brandon Inge and catcher Victor Martinez both chased the ball, leaving the plate unprotected. Inge made the catch, then tossed the ball to Martinez, who scampered back in time to tag Hamilton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a stupid play,â&#x20AC;? Hamilton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The whole time the ball was in the air, the coach was yelling, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Go, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

no one at home,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and I was thinking, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to do this, something is going to happen.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I listened to my coach,â&#x20AC;? he said, referring to third-base coach Dave Anderson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was way too aggressive. Maybe if they had both been closer to me, but they had a perfect angle to cut me off, and the only way to avoid a tag in that situation is to go head first.â&#x20AC;? He is expected to miss six to eight weeks after breaking his upper right arm on the play. The Tigers wound up winning 5-4. The fracture was small enough that it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t detected on an X-ray, but Rangers general manager Jon Daniels held a conference call about two hours after the game with results from an MRI exam. Daniels defended Andersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to send Hamilton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We play an aggressive style of baseball,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The chances of getting hurt on that play are minimal.â&#x20AC;? The AL champion Rangers, off to a 9-2 start, said Hamilton has a non-displaced fracture of the humerus bone at the top of his arm, just below the shoulder. He isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expected to swing a bat for a month. Hamilton hit .359 with 32 home runs and 100 RBIs in 2010. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hitting .333 this season. In 2009, Hamilton was limited to 89 games when he had two stints on the disabled list after separate wall-crashing catches. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big part of our club,â&#x20AC;? Daniels said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We built the club to deal with something like this.â&#x20AC;? The Rangers gave him a $24 million, two-year contract in February, avoiding arbitration.

FIGHT â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;-------------------------------stories about what happened at The Club that night differ. In an interview yesterday, Saehler said his recollection of the night was hazy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; because he was drinking â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but that he remembered engaging some men at the bar after he saw one of them talking with his girlfriend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember there was some guy getting in her face,â&#x20AC;? he said. Saehler said he remembered a scuffle between himself and three men at the bar, and remembered being hit several times around the face and neck. When the fight was broken up, Saehler said he touched his scalp and found his hand covered in blood from a one-inch gash. He said he does not remember being hit over the head with anything, but that others said White had hit him with a beer bottle. According to the report, police asked White if he struck Saehler with a bottle, but White denied it. John Hanson, manager of The Club, submitted a witness statement to police

[From page 1]

after the bar closed for the night. In his statement, Hanson said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d seen White â&#x20AC;&#x153;acting aggressivelyâ&#x20AC;? on the dance floor earlier that night and had asked him to call down. He said many patrons at the bar claimed to have seen White hit Saehler over the head with a beer bottle, and that White said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d done so to one of the barâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doormen. Police also arrested Meagan Montoya for disorderly conduct after she threw a beer in an officerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face while he was taking White into custody. Saehler said Montoya was part of his party, and the police report states that she was accosting White while he was being arrested. Saehler said yesterday that he is not satisfied with the misdemeanor charge against White, and that he would prefer to see him charges with felony assault. He said he is not planning to sue White, but hopes to recoup his medical bills through the criminal court process.

MUSIC â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;-------------------------------- [From page 7] acoustic rock/pop duo of Ted Hammock and Matt Fisher is influenced by G. Love, Free Game Night at Dispatch, Sublime and Jack Johnson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Loaded Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Avon love the gauntlet of human emotion and the feelings that people experience.â&#x20AC;?
