Stone Creek finds home again By Matt Minich Mountaineer Editor In their quest to find a permanent home for the county’s youngest school, officials with Stone Creek Charter School have set their eyes on yet another parcel. Parents and faculty members received and email yesterday saying the school has closed a contract with the owner of a 2.4-acre parcel in Fox Hollow in Ed-

Charter school signs contract to buy land in Fox Hollow wards, and plans to move the school there before classes start. Constructed with several portable modular units, the school is currently located just east of the Home Depot in Avon. They lease that land from the



town of Avon, but their lease is up June 30. The town, hoping to capitalize on federal grant money for the construction of a bus depot, will use the space as a staging area for construction equipment. That means leaders at Stone Creek

Obama: Congress must raise debt limit

President Barack Obama confidently predicted yesterday that a divided Congress would raise the nation’s borrowing limit rather than risk triggering a worldwide recession, but he conceded he would have to offer more spending cuts to Republicans to get a deal. The government is nearing its borrowing limit of $14.3 trillion and risks going into a crippling default. House Republicans say they won’t lift the debt cap without more cuts.

CMC expansion almost ready

Improvements intended to foster friendly atmosphere By Matt Minich Mountaineer Editor During the next three months, workers will put the finishing touches on an expansion that will more than double the size of the Colorado Mountain College campus in Edwards. Officials with the college hope the 36,005 square foot expansion will not only provide more facilities for the campus’s core programs, but also foster a sense of community that they feel is absent in the current building. The design for the addition features wider hallways and bigger windows that the original campus, and the structure is built around a new student center, which will be lit by bay windows facing Bellyache Ridge. When finished, the student center will include a gas fireplace, a food service area, and a landscaped outdoor patio area that will be set up to host concerts. “We really wanted to capture the life and noise and excitement of a campus,� said Jon Keiser of TAB Associates Inc., the Edwards-based company commissioned to design the expansion. “To give (the students) a reason to treat this as not just a commuter college.� Architects aimed to create a building that would turn what is now a

The layout of the existing building makes it difficult for students to come together as a group, Curry said, and sends many out the door as soon as classes end.

Enhanced programs The benefits students will reap from the $8 Million addition aren’t all esoteric; the building will also host facilities that will bolster some of the college’s most popular programs. The expansion includes a twovehicle garage for the college’s fire fighter training programs, where students can work with actual fire trucks, attach fire hoses to live fire [See CMC page 12]

Vail seeks input on conference center funds

With clock ticking, open forum set for Tuesday afternoon

By Phil Lindeman Mountaineer Staff Writer Nearly nine years since the town of Vail raised taxes for a conference center that never was, the town council will host an open discussion with community members on how to spend $9.4 million in collected funds. The forum will begin at 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 19, roughly two hours prior to the evening session. During the regular meeting, the council will also consider ballot wording and whether to hold a dedicated election in August, both contested issues during previous meetings. As tax-generated revenue, voters must approve any use of the funds. If a ballot issue fails, the money will likely be refunded through a

tax break, a process that could take upwards of 20 years. The council has already heard three proposed projects, presented at the April 5 meeting by former council member Kent Logan. In keeping with the original goal of the conference center, each had to “increase overall economic vitality” for Vail – in other words, attract tourists, preferably year-round. All told, Logan’s projects would require an additional $6.7 million. The town opted to invite public comment after several prominent community members, from lodge managers to long-time residents, voiced concerns about the true impact of the three projects. “The council wants to understand the community and its wishes,” said Suzanne Silverthorn, a spokeswoman for the town.

On April 5, Logan also recommended the projects be placed on a special ballot on Aug. 23, rather than the normal ballot on Nov. 8. In a memo by Vail Town Manager Stan Zemler outlining the pros and cons, an early vote would likely attract more people and give the council time to approve projects before the 2012 budget is finalized in November. However, an August election gives less time for public input and costs an additional $12,000. The money, still commonly referred to as “conference center funds,” was gathered from 2002 to 2005 through a combination of lodging and sales taxes. Although nearly $2.4 million of the original fund was used for designs and planning, it has been collecting interest since the tax was nixed in 2005.

Huskies battle Demons to a split Battle Mountain wins second game of doubleheader

Can’t decide which color makes you look your best? You shouldn’t have to. Leave that to Michele!


By Brian Alexander Mountaineer Staff Writer The Battle Mountain boys baseball team split a double-dip yesterday as they traveled to take on the Glenwood Springs Demons for a home/away affair on a beautiful sunny day in Glenwood. The first game was an offensive attack by both teams, seeing Glenwood come out victorious by a score of 12-9. The second game was quite the opposite as a pitcher’s duel ruled the field, and Battle Mountain came out on top 6-0, behind the arm of pitcher Riley Robbins. The early afternoon tilt saw the Huskies take an early lead as leadoff batter Andrew Pellerito started the game off with a base hit, after advancing to third base on a couple of pitches that were in the dirt, Pellerito scored the first run of the game on a Michael Jones ground out to the shortstop, giving Battle Mountain a quick 1-0 lead. The Demons answered in the bottom of the inning, scoring a pair of runs to give Glenwood a 2-1 lead after one inning of play. Battle Mountain added another run in the top of the second as Eric Weiss led the inning off with a single, advanced to third on a rip-shot double by teammate Chris Duran

Train pulls in to Vail tonight Grammy winners headline Spring Back to Vail The jam-packed lineup of entertainment for Spring Back to Vail continues tonight with a free headliner concert from the band Train, presented by Bud Light in Ford Park, fresh off their 2011 Grammy win for Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals for their hit song “Hey Soul Sister.” Over the course of 15 years, Train has made its mark on music history with a Grammy-Award-winning song and the chart-topping singles “Meet Virginia” and “Calling All Angels.” Train’s music has garnered them fans of all ages since forming in San Francisco in 1994. The multi-platinum selling band has traveled a long, successful and sometimes arduous journey. Following their 2006 release, “For Me, It’s You,” the band took a three-year hiatus, and in that time, Train has, for all intents and purposes, experienced an epiphany as a whole. Now, with their fifth album, “Save Me, San Francisco,” Train has channeled their early days, revisiting the roots rock sound that has made the band such a tour de force – and, in turn, the band is united stronger than ever before. When looking back, Train credits the city of San Francisco with cultivating the band’s identity and foundation, so it’s no wonder than the title track of the record would pay homage to the Bay Area metropolis the band holds so dear. “Save Me

San Francisco” is an autobiographical account of Train’s beginnings, and embodies not only the spirit of the album, but also the soul of Train as a band. The song’s lyrics take the listener through the three-piece’s humble start in the mid-90s up through the time when the band left the City by the Bay. “Save Me, San Francisco” taps into Train’s organic sound, recalling the blues and folk-infused

rock that put the band on the map from the start. In this day and age, career artists are few and far between, and after a decade and a half of being a band, Train is ready to present one heck of a show. Train recognizes it’s accomplishments, and is more than grateful for the success they have experienced. However, for a band as consummate as Train is, they still [See TRAIN, page 13]

said. The new parcel – just across Highway 6– is level enough for the school to host the school in its current configuration. Wolfe said parents of downvalley students, which have been a growing demographic at Stone Creek., welcomed the move to Edwards. While students from Avon will have to travel farther to attend classes, he said he does not believe any families have been inconvenienced enough to pull their children from the school. “I think on balance it’s going to create a really positive benefit,” he said. Michelle Huyke, the mother of two Stone Creek students, said she couldn’t be happier. A Lake Creek resident, the new school is just a few miles from her home. “I am ecstatic,” she said. “If anything I feel almost a little guilty.” Huyke said she had not heard complaints from any parents of Stone Creek students. “I think all the parents are happy that we still have a school,” she said. Not all the students will be going to classes at the new site, though. Those in the lowest grades – Kindergarten through second – will take their classes in classrooms at the nearby Gracious Savior Lutheran Church. A different approach As a charter school Stone Creek is allowed to run its own operation so long as it meets minimum state and federal standards, Wolfe said. That means administrators at Stone Creek don’t answer to district officials, but instead operate with “building-level control.” There is no tenure available to teachers at Stone Creek, and all hiring and firing is done in-house. That approach has created a unique bond between the parents, teachers, and 210 students of Stone Creek, said Huyke, who described the school as “renegade”. “I think there’s more heart and love and actual passion for the growth and success of my kids,” she said. “I feel like the teachers treat my kids like their own kids.”

By Phil Lindeman Mountaineer Staff Writer Tom Robbins wants the world to fall in love with independent record stores all over again. “It has been a really rough past few years,” said Robbins, the owner of Eagle Valley Music, one of the few remaining bona fide record stores in the area. “But interest in vinyl is increasing by leaps and bounds. The common thread is pop culture. There’s an ambiance to a record store that doesn’t transfer to the online experience.” With any luck, Robbins’ vision will become a reality today. His vision is shared by the thousands who plan to participate in Record Store Day, an international event to celebrate all things 7-inch, limited edition, and custom pressed. More than 700 stores across the country will participate, including Robbins’ shop in West Vail. As of earlier this week, it now boasts more than 300 additional records for vinyl junkies to drool over, all ordered specifically for today. The true appeal of Record Store Day, as any die-hard fan will attest to, is bragging rights. Every item up for grabs was made solely for the event, from 7-inch Rolling Stones singles to reissues of 0

two full-length Ozzy Osbourne albums. Along with Oz, artists from every genre have publicly supported the day through its website,, with homemade videos and tweets galore. Robbins said high-profile collectables are obvious top sellers, but a number of other unique items should draw heavy interest. This year’s event highlights a slew of colored vinyl discs, many featuring classic covers by modern bands. One standout: a rendition of the Ramones’ “Havannah Affair” done by The Red Hot Chili Peppers, with the original artwork on one side and new art on the other. All told, Robbins said 40 to 50 items should easily sell out within the first few hours. Now in its fourth year, Record Store Day appeals to an underground culture that is quickly making a comeback. Despite the advent of digital music – iTunes has sold well over 10 billion tracks, and illegal downloading is practically par for the course – Robbins said business has slowly picked up over the past year. “There are a lot of purists,” Robbins said. “There’s something lacking with the digital form.

Undocumented tuition bill moves Legislation would give in-state rates to illegal immigrants By Ivan Moreno Special to the Mountaineer Colorado Senate Democrats advanced a proposal Friday to grant in-state tuition to illegal immigrants, an issue that triggered emotional arguments from Hispanic lawmakers who choked back tears as they urged support of the bill. Only Democrats supported the bill when it passed on a preliminary vote, with Republicans arguing the proposal provides an incentive for immigrants to come to the U.S. illegally. Democratic Sen. Angela Giron’s voice quivered as she told lawmakers that she has relatives who are in the country illegally, a circumstance she said perhaps wouldn’t resonate with her colleagues. “And so I’m thinking, gosh, but I bet they have grandkids, and they have kids,” said Giron, a first-year lawmaker from Pueblo. This is the fifth time Colorado Democrats have tried to pass a bill giving illegal immigrants the chance to pay lower in-state tuition rates. Senators must vote one more time before the measure goes to the House, where Republicans have a one-person edge. Sen. Shawn Mitchell, a Republican from Broomfield, said the bill is misguided because illegal immigrant students will not be able to legally get jobs in this country when they graduate from college. “It’s a false promise. It’s false

hope. It’s the politics of gesture and of symbolism,” he said. Other Republicans questioned the proposal’s legality, saying federal law states that illegal immigrants cannot receive a benefit not given to U.S. citizens. Eleven states have laws granting in-state tuition to illegal immigrants, including California, Illinois, Kansas and Texas. Although there have been court challenges, the law has not been overturned in the states that have it. Similar legislation is pending in Oregon, where the measure recently passed the Senate and is awaiting a vote in the House. Colorado’s Senate Bill 126 would allow illegal immigrant students to qualify for in-state tuition if they meet certain criteria, such as attending a Colorado high school for at least three years and graduating from a state school. It requires that students sign an affidavit with a college saying they are trying to obtain legal residency, a provision that other states have included in their legislation. The latest Colorado bill is different from past versions because it makes illegal immigrant students ineligible for a state stipend that in-state tuition students can use at a college of their choice. That means illegal immigrants would still pay more than others who get in-state tuition. Republicans who opposed the

bill said taxpayers would still be subsidizing college for illegal immigrants because having additional students will lead to higher operating costs — an argument Democrats disputed. Republicans also said the proposal would reward illegal behavior. “We typically punish people who break the law,” El Paso County Republican Sen. Bill Cadman said. “We’re proving a singular exception for those who are breaking the law in this country.” Democratic Sen. Lucia Guzman said some of the debate was painful for her to hear “as an American of Mexican descent.” “I see the children of undocumented people not as illegals. The children had no choice,” she said. Democrats said having more students attend state colleges, regardless of their immigration status, would be an economic boon for the state. Sen. Rollie Heath, a Democrat from Boulder, said it makes no sense to educate illegal immigrant students through high school only to make it difficult to attend college. “When we take away the incentive for students, no matter what their status, to achieve their very best, we are literally undercutting the whole system of education in this state,” he said.

hydrants and test working sprinklers and fire alarms. For aspiring Emergency Medical Technicians, the addition includes a new medical simulation room complete with an artificial ambulance, which is positioned as an ambulance would be while unloading a patient in a hospital emergency room. When completed, the ambulance will appear to be exactly like a regular ambulance, allowing students to learn how to stock medical supplies in the proper places and work within the confined space of an ambulance. The simulation area also includes a bathroom where students can practice removing patients from bathtubs or showers. There will also be a new 81-seat lecture hall, a language learning lab, and a solar greenhouse. The greenhouse will be used by culinary students, who will learn to grow some of the food they cook using sustainable practices in a new 760-square foot teaching kitchen. Some of the food cooked by the culinary students will be sold at a kitchen in the student center. The addition also includes 13 new classrooms, three of which feature Interactive Video System technology, which allows students to attend classes at other campuses or even Mesa State College in Grand Junction. The dance studio, where classes are held on everything from jazz dance to ballet to yoga, has been expanded, and the floors have been replaced with a rubber material that is easier on dancers’ joints.

[From page 2]

Developing curriculum The addition is expected to open for classes in the fall semester, around the same time the college plans to enroll students in its first four-year programs. A two-year community college since it was founded in 1967, Colorado Mountain College has spent more than a year working with state officials to become an accredited four-year university. Officials plan to jump through the final hoop of the accreditation process next week, and to open the application process for two four-year degrees April 20. If the programs are approved as expected, the college will offer a Bachelor of Science Degree in Sustainability and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business Management. While the school’s lowerlevel classes will remain open to all that apply, applicants for the four-year programs will need a GPA higher than 2.3 and at least 45 hours of college credit. More changes considered The Edwards campus is one of seven campuses in the Colorado Mountain College system, and it is one of the system’s fastest growing commuter colleges. Whether it will stay a commuter college, though, is up in the air. Officials are considering the construction of a 100-person dormitory on the land, Curry said yesterday. The plans have not been approved or even finalized yet, she said. If built, the 100-person dormitory would probably be the last dormitory built on the campus, Curry said.

state’s seven congressional districts so that each has a near equal number of people. This process accompanies the census every ten years, and always becomes a political battle. Democrats presented six variations of their proposal; each would expand CD2 to include more than a dozen northwestern counties. The proposals would change the shape of CD3, which currently covers most of western Colorado and the southern Front Range, to include most of the southern half of the state, from the western border to


the eastern. Republicans proposed five variations of their plan, each of which would affect CD2 differently. Two would cut a small portion of Eagle County out of CD2 and cede it to CD3, and three would cut all or some of Grand County out of the district. Discussions haven’t begun in earnest about the proposals, but Club 20, a lobbying group that represents western Colorado communities, released a statement opposing the Democratic proposal last night.

sets their goals high and hopes the band’s fans will continue to come along for the ride. Before Train hits the stage, upand-coming indie pop band Saint Motel will open up the free night of music. The explosive, cinematic, hardpop band Saint Motel is, to put it best, hard to resist, and damn fun.


In the world of Saint Motel, nothing bows to convention: Stages become forests and living rooms, and shows become kaleidoscopic mind explosions in 3D. This theatrically creative world is due in large part to the fact that the gentlemen of Saint Motel formed in film school. The raw energy apparent in Saint Motel’s music is felt at a new level

The proposal fails to group “communities of interest” together, the proposal reads, and would create districts with too wide a diversity of communities. “We need a common sense approach in the definition of Congressional Districts,” Club 20 Executive Director Bonnie Peterson said in the statement. “Communities of interest should be preserved and not be victims of partisan politics.” A final proposal from the redistricting committee is not due before the governor until September.

Despite the look and feel of Eagle Valley Music, what he describes as “the kind of shop you would find in the ‘70s,” his customer base is made largely of 20-somethings. “It’s that core demographic advertisers always go for but don’t know where they’ll spend their

money,” Robbins said. “It’s a very indie crowd.” The influence of this young, hip set is immediately recognized in some of the more unexpected pieces on sale today, including a Lady Gaga 12-inch. While his day-to-day customers tend to border on the Generation X, Robbins expects music lovers of every variety to take part in Record Store Day. He predicts between 300

Tens of thousands of protesters shouting “We want freedom!” made a bold march on the Syrian capital yesterday, but security forces beat them back with tear gas and batons as the country’s monthlong uprising swelled to the largest and most widespread gatherings to date, witnesses and activists said. The violence outside of Damascus was the only major unrest reported during protests in several Syrian cities yesterday, with security forces generally watching from the sidelines instead of cracking down. The change suggests President Bashar Assad may be trying to minimize deaths that have served to further outrage and mobilize the protesters.

other alleged victims of a British tabloid phone-hacking scandal could push ahead with suing the News of The World newspaper, a judge said yesterday. High Court judge Geoffrey Vos said the four cases should not be delayed by an ongoing criminal investigation into the tabloid’s conduct.

Dalai Lama raises concern about monastery crisis

The Dalai Lama yesterday asked the international community to persuade the Chinese leadership to exercise restraint in handling the latest troubles at a blockaded Tibetan monastery in western China. The Kirti monastery, housing nearly 2,500 monks, has been completely surrounded since March 16 by Chinese armed forces, who at one point prevented food and other vital supplies from entering the monastic compound, the Tibetan spiritual leader said in a statement. A 20-year-old monk at Kirti set himself on fire last month in protest against Beijing, making his death a focal point for local anger and setting up the latest round of tensions.

Va. Tech mulls appeal as it marks grim anniversary

Four years after a troubled student gunned down 32 in a campus rampage, Virginia Tech officials remain adamant that they did nothing wrong by waiting two hours to warn the campus that a gunman was on the loose. Today, the school will mourn the victims of the April 16, 2007 mass shooting — the worst in modern U.S. history — with a 3.2-mile Run for Remembrance and a candlelight vigil. Meanwhile, school officials are strongly leaning toward appealing a $55,000 fine for violating federal law with its response the day of the shootings. “Truth, accountability, apology, forgiveness — you have to get through the first three to get to the fourth,” said Joseph Samaha, whose daughter Reema was killed. “Somebody needs to say “I made a mistake.’”

Scientists: Controllers need naps on the job

The best solution to the problem of sleepy air traffic controllers is more sleeping on the job, scientists say. But that would be a radical change for the Federal Aviation Administration. Current regulations forbid sleeping at work, even during breaks. Controllers who are caught can be suspended or fired. Experts say that kind of thinking is outdated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There should be sanctioned on-shift napping. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way to handle night shift work,â&#x20AC;? said Gregory Belenky, a sleep expert at Washington State University in Spokane. There are plenty of other scientists in the U.S. and around the world who agree with him. Sleep studies show that nighttime workers who are allowed â&#x20AC;&#x153;recuperative breaksâ&#x20AC;? are more alert when they return to their tasks.

ATHLETIC STUFF Rockies shut out Cubs, continue domination

Jhoulys Chacin tossed a six-hitter for his first career complete game, Chris Iannetta hit a bases-clearing triple and the Colorado Rockies won their seventh straight, beating the Chicago Cubs 5-0 last night. The Rockies are off to their best start in franchise history, improving to 11-2 behind the performance of Chacin, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s picking up the slack quite nicely with ace Ubaldo Jimenez sidelined due to a cracked cuticle on his right thumb. In windy and cool conditions, Chacin (3-0) struck out seven and walked two. He smacked his fist into his glove when the Rockies recorded a 5-4-3 double play to end the game. This was the second start this season in which Chacin has held a team scoreless. The 23-year-old righty bottled up the Los Angeles Dodgers for seven innings on April 5. Todd Helton added an RBI single while Iannetta had just the second triple of the season for the Rockies, who own the best record in baseball. Matt Garza (0-2) turned in a third straight erratic performance, surrendering five runs and seven hits in six innings. That despite doing what most pitchers havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been able to recently: Limit the damage done by Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki. The three and four hitters in Coloradoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lineup were a combined 1 for 8 on the night. Garza was acquired from the Tampa Bay Rays in the offseason to bolster the Cubsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rotation. He won 15 games with the Rays in 2010. The hard-throwing rightyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s undoing yesterday was the second inning. With the bases loaded, Iannetta hit a pitch from Garza to deep center that Marlon Byrd couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite corral. All three runs scored and when Starlin Castroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relay throw to third ended up in the dugout, Iannetta sauntered home, too. The rally was started with a single from Tulowitzki, one of the hottest hitters in the league. The smooth-swinging shortstop had a torrid fourgame series in New York against the Mets, going 10 for 16 with four homers and eight RBIs. Tulowitzki took a little time to get his swing dialed in â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he started the season in an 0 for 9 funk after signing a lucrative long-term deal over the winter â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but now even his outs are loud. He entered the game leading the majors with seven homers. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s putting together the type of tear like he had last September, when he hit 15 homers, a franchise record for a month. Tulowitzki insists hitting isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as easy as heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s making it look right now. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At any point and time, you can go south. I know that,â&#x20AC;? Tulowitzki said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just trying to do what I do out there and trying to play the game hard.â&#x20AC;?

Giants, while Jimenez goes Tuesday. Rockies manager Jim Tracy said yesterday the decision was made not so much because of the condition of Jimenezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cut on his pitching hand, but to keep Rogers on his regular pitching schedule. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel any pain,â&#x20AC;? Jimenez said of the injury before the game.

Federer eliminated in quarterfinals at Monte Carlo

Roger Federer yesterday suffered his earliest tournament exit since Wimbledon last year, losing to Jurgen Melzer 6-4, 6-4 at the Monte Carlo Masters quarterfinals. With dust and clay blowing off the court, Federer was ousted from his first clay-court tournament of the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I played terrible. I thought it was OK,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was still the first week of clay, so I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect myself to play my very best.â&#x20AC;? Melzer sealed the victory when the second-seeded Federer chopped a weak forehand into the net. Melzer next plays fourth-seeded David Ferrer of Spain, who defeated 11th-seeded Viktor Troicki of Serbia 6-3, 6-3. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have beaten Rafa (Nadal) last year. I have beaten Nole (Djokovic). So this was the one missing,â&#x20AC;? Melzer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a few shots on the line, a few bad bounces that were going my way. You need that to beat Roger.â&#x20AC;? This latest defeat raises more questions about whether Federer is slipping further behind Nadal and Djok-

McIlroy finds himself in early lead ... again

Rory McIlroy is rebounding quite nicely after his collapse in the final round of the Masters. The 21-year-old from Northern Ireland shot an 8-under 64 in the rain-shortened second round of the Malaysian Open yesterday and shares the lead with Alexander Noren of Sweden at 11-under 133. Nore had a 69 to go with his first-round 64. Rory McIlroy weathered the heat and rain to shoot a blistering round on Day 2 of the Malaysian Open. Play at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club was halted for nearly three hours before it resumed. Later, it was suspended because of thunder and lightning. Masters champion Charl Schwartzel was among 77 players who failed to complete their rounds. Play is scheduled to resume today. McIlroy led last week’s Masters for 63 holes before a back nine of 43 crushed his hopes of winning a major tournament. He said he’s in “great position” heading into the weekend. “It helps when you have a morning tee time here as you are up pretty early,” McIlroy said of yesterday’s round. “I went out and played well, and holed a couple of putts. I’ve been driving the ball pretty good, which you need to around here.” Simon Dyson of England was one stroke off the lead after shooting a 64, while top-ranked Martin Kaymer of Germany was eight strokes back after a 71. Noren struggled with the tropical weather. “I had 14 great holes, but the heat got to me and I was just counting how many holes I had left,” he said.

Lenny Dykstra in big trouble

Former New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Lenny Dykstra was arrested for investigation

of grand theft, a day after he was charged with a federal bankruptcy crime, authorities said yesterday. Dykstra, 48, was arrested Thursday night by Los Angeles police at his Encino home on suspicion of trying to buy a stolen car, police spokesman Officer Christopher No said. He did not have other details. Dykstra remained jailed yesterday. His arrest came a day after Dykstra, in an unrelated federal complaint, was charged with embezzling from a bankruptcy estate. He faces up to five years in federal prison if convicted. Dykstra, who bought a Ventura County mansion once owned by hockey star Wayne Gretzky, filed for bankruptcy in 2009, claiming that he owed more than $31 million and had only $50,000 in assets. Federal prosecutors contend that after filing, Dykstra hid, sold or destroyed more than $400,000 worth of items from the $18.5 million mansion without permission of a bankruptcy trustee. The items allegedly ranged from sports memorabilia to a $50,000 sink. At one point, he sold “a truckload of furnishing and fixtures” for cash at a consignment store, according to a statement from the U.S. attorney’s office. It was not immediately clear whether Dykstra had obtained an attorney, U.S. attorney’s office spokesman Thom Mrozek said. Dykstra spent 12 years in the big leagues and helped the Mets to the World Series championship in 1986. He was a three-time All-Star in the 1990s while with the Phillies. He had the nickname “Nails” and was known for his rowdy behavior on and off the field. In 2007, the Mitchell Report on steroid use in pro baseball mentioned allegations that Dykstra had used steroids. Dykstra has denied using performance-enhancing drugs. After retiring, Dykstra had a number of business ventures, including owning a car wash, and wrote a stockpicking column on, a financial website founded by TV host Jim Cramer. However, he also was the subject of a number of lawsuits. In January, his housekeeper alleged that Dykstra forced her to provide sexual favors but he denied the allegations and Los Angeles County prosecutors declined to file criminal charges.

Duran. Duran, Jared Kirkman, Joe Webb and Joe Lybarger were responsible for driving in the runs that gave the Huskies the lead at 6-5 in the fourth. Glenwood Springs didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let that Husky lead last long, scoring four runs of their own in the fourth to extend their lead back to three at 9-6. Battle Mountain kept clipping away at the Demons lead, scoring in each of the last three innings, only to see Glenwood Springs respond with runs of their own and eventually end the game with a 12-9 win in game one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a good battle, we kept swinging,â&#x20AC;? said Husky coach Jason Spannagel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get them this next game.â&#x20AC;? Thanks to Battle Mountainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pitcher Robbins and his knee-buckling curveball, coach Spannagel was right, as the Huskies came away with a win in game two 6-0. The first inning didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look so promising for the now home team Battle Mountain, as Glenwood loaded the bases with no outs, but thanks to a little luck and some good defense the Huskies came away without being harmed. Pellerito wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t waste any time for the Huskies, setting the table once again with a lead-off single in the bottom of the

first, followed by a thunderous double to dead center for Michael Jones to setup runners in scoring position with nobody out. Next to the plate was catcher Davey Honda who smoked a ground-rule double scoring both runners, Honda scored shortly on a Duran sacrifice fly giving the Huskies a 3-0 lead. A pitcherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s duel ensued as both teams were held scoreless over the next two innings, until Battle Mountain broke out the lumber, or aluminum, again in the bottom of the fourth inning. After three big at-bats for the Huskies loaded the bases with no outs, it was Joe Webb stepping up to the plate. Webb took an extremely low fastball and put a charge into it, sending a line shot into right field that scooted under the glove of the fielder unloading the bases, and extending Battle Mountainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead to an insurmountable 6-0. The rest of the game was controlled by the right arm of starting pitcher Robbins, as none of the Demons could keep their weight back long enough to touch any of Robbins nasty off-speed pitches. Finishing up the complete game mastery was Robbins, and in doing so helped his team walk away with a split of the afternoon doubleheader by a final score of 6-0.
