Mourning the Minturn Mile . . .

L’Aquila’s chief prosecutor announced an investigation into allegations of shoddy construction as workers continued to scour the rubble for people still missing after a devastating earthquake five days ago. Rescuers pulled one more body from a collapsed building on Saturday, raising the death toll to 291. Workers also picked through the rubble of an apartment building in L’Aquila after dogs trained to look for survivors indicated there might be life in the debris, but fire officials at the scene cautioned against concluding that a survivor was inside. Sounds emanating from the rubble could be water running, an appliance or even an animal, rescuers said. Engineers and geologists have said that buildings constructed to seismicsafety standards should not have collapsed in a 6.3-magnitude quake, raising the possibility that either building codes weren’t followed or that shoddy materials were used in some cases.

Peter Mitchell, 10, of Minturn, skis the Minturn Mile on his way home last week. Many locals celebrated Saturday as the last day of the popular backcountry route to Minturn, as the popular Eco Bus is no longer offering regular service between Minturn and Vail starting today.

Still fighting the good fight Longtime local looks for help with second cancer battle By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Fighting the good fight is nothing new for Terri Adams. In 2006 she beat breast cancer and was cancer free for two years. It took all the tools, chemotherapy, surgery and radiation. “It was time to get on with the business of living,” said Terri. In January it was time to fight again. Metastatic cancer was found in many areas of her body. It’s hard and she needs help. There’s a fundraiser Wednesday evening, April 15, at E-Town in the Edwards Riverwalk. Cancer sucks the life out of not only the body, but also the fighter’s finances. “There is much to live for and helping her to live a life of quality with dignity is the main goal we face today,” said Terri. You’ll love this. She works for the school district as a bus driver and teacher. She’s certified to teach early childhood special needs kids and is bilingual in English and Spanish. Her co-workers in the school district’s transportation pooled all their sick time and gave it to her, so she could pay her bills just a little while longer while she battles on. The battle is tough and the odds are long. Brain surgery removed a brain tumor, but there are

Or contact Terri at twildheart@msn.com more that are too dangerous to remove. The cancer has spread to her lungs, spine and femur. Still, she’s upbeat and she’s hitting it head on, with a little help from her friends. “I’m so thankful to so many people and organizations that came forward to help her during my first bout of breast cancer,” she said. “I’m overwhelmed by the prayers from all over the world.” Terri says her greatest joy in life has been her daughter, Jenni, born in Vail in 1991. Jenni’s a senior graduating next month from Eagle Valley High School. Terri has a lot to be proud of. Jenni is one of those kids who’s good at everything – great student, Girl Scout, SOS volunteer, one of the area’s best dancers and heartstoppingly cute. Terri moved to the valley in 1976 and spent most of her adult life working, running her own construction company, making lifelong friends and raising Jenni. For a woman who has so much to fight for, the good fight goes on.

FUNDRAISER

‘Love our locals’ gives 30 percent to schools Restaurant to give 30 percent of bill to schools, not take 30 percent off bill Mountaineer Staff Report So, if Sweet Basil took money off your bill, and then gave a percent of that to schools, that wouldn’t mean as much money for local schools now would it. Sweet Basil’s not offering any money off your bill, (as reported in the Mountaineer Saturday,) but they are giving 30 percent of the total of that bill to schools as part of the “Love our locals” fundraiser the popular Vail Village restaurant is putting on next week. “We try to say yes to as many requests as we can and do something meaningful and significant,” Morgan said. “This creates a significant contribution and gives a reason for people to come out.” The schools are: Red Sandstone Elementary in Vail; St. Clare of Assisi in Edwards; Eagle County Charter Academy in Edwards; Edwards Elementary School in Edwards; and Battle Mountain High School in Avon.

Five schools chosen Each school was chosen for a reason — Battle Mountain High School students asked for a donation to support the school’s “Project Graduation” program, a non-alcoholic end-of-year party for students, for example. Morgan’s children attend the Eagle County Charter Academy. “We think it’s awesome. We’re excited about it,” said Kerry Loetscher, office manager at Red Sandstone. “I know most of the staff are planning to go.” At St. Clare of Assisi, the money raised will be used to help pay for an eighth grade pilgrimage to Santa Fe, said Jennifer Bianchi, administrative assistant. “We appreciate Sweet Basil supporting local schools. That’s what’s most important to us,” Bianchi said. “It really shows that they ‘love our locals.’” Edwards Elementary will use the money to buy books and items that teachers need in their classrooms, said Heidi Hanssen, the principal. “It’s especially a nice gesture when coming from a restaurant like Sweet Basil who gets a lot of their business from the guests that visit our community,” Hanssen said. “It makes me realize that they still remember and respect the locals.”

Kenny Perry will have the nerve test of his career as he enters the final round of the 2009 Masters tied for first. Angel Cabrera is the man Perry is tied with, and history has shown nothing fearful about the way Cabrera plays. Cabrera, who held off Tiger to win the U.S. Open two years ago at Oakmont, made three birdies on the back nine and scratched out an important par on the final hole Saturday at the Masters for a 3-under 69. Perry, who thrived under the spotlight of a Ryder Cup in his native Kentucky last September but never won a major championship, overcame two mistakes with his putter around Amen Corner (11,12 and 13) and finished with five straight pars for a 70 to join the Argentine in the lead. Perry lost in a playoff at the PGA Championship at Valhalla in 1996, when he was criticized for being in the broadcast booth instead of keeping loose on the practice range. He never would have imagined that all these years later, he would have a chance to become golf’s oldest major champion at 48. “The first two days felt like I was on vacation,� Perry said. “Today felt like a job.� Perry and Cabrera have a

Charlie Villanueva sued over alleged bar fight

Milwaukee Bucks forward, Charlie Villanueva is being sued for assaulting a man at a nightclub on Feb. 22, 2008. Daniel Fischer claims the attack at Decibel nightclub, where Villanueva is admittedly a regular, left him significant damage and was “completely unprovoked.” Villanueva called the claims “outrageous” and in an interview after team practice Friday morning, he said, “I know no such thing about it.” Charlie has seen quite a lot of media attention lately for Twittering at half time of one of the Bucks regular season games. We all know social networking sites can

cause relationship problems, and apparently that applies to player/coach relationships also. This bar room brawl incident, that may or may not be real, will not go far in damaging Villanueva’s reputation. He known is known as a NBA player who is a good citizen and gives back to the community. He’s actively involved with the National Alopecia Areata Foundation, a foundation that treats kids who have alopecia areata, a disease that Villanueva has himself. The disease causes hair loss, but is not at all threatening to ones’ health.

cash means that many of these state-run companies can simply write a check — or pay in shekels if that’s what you want — for an enormous mining company or any other enterprise on the planet. But other minds are also clever, and they know better than selling national treasures at fire-sale prices. China’s government is also urging caution, telling its privately owned companies to take care in their eagerness to march overseas. A recent seminar noted that only one in four overseas acquisitions by Chinese companies to date has proven successful. The cultural divide and gulf in business practices remains too wide to bridge in most cases.

[From page 4]

A good case study is Lenovo, the mainland China company that bought IBM’s personal computer business in 2005. It is now a distant fourth in the global PC race and was having severe business troubles in the West before the economic crisis began. China remains its only profit center. It is now focusing efforts in emerging markets – apparently acknowledging it has lost the battle in the West. This is another installment of “Peking Man” by longtime Vail local Jon Van Housen, who is now serving as a “foreign expert” in Beijing. He can be reached at jon.beijing@gmail.com.

Police in southern New Hampshire are searching for a burglar who says he’s sorry. Pelham police say a resident who pulled into his driveway Friday afternoon caught a burglar coming out of the house with jewelry boxes and electronic items. The homeowner told police that when he approached the burglar, the man apologized, then put the stolen goods back. Police say the homeowner tried to detain the burglar by engaging him in conversation, but the suspect fled by the time officers arrived.

NEW YORK CITY’S MODERN ROCK BAND, The WMDs, are back at The Club in Vail tonight for “Spring Back to Vail� week, April 9-19th. Fresh off the heels of a national tour in February, The WMDs are proud to celebrate the release of their second full-length album “We Are Waves� with 11 nights straight at The Club on Bridge St. in Vail Village. The sound of The WMDs is their own, but often compared to Tom Petty meets Radiohead by way of John Mayer. A seemingly disjointed amalgam, but the band wears its influences well, and does them proud. The band’s line-up is completed by drummer Paul Amorese (Bacci, Hypnotic Clambake) and bassist Mike Chiavaro (Spencer Day, Lenka Dusilova). While an original band at heart, all-night marathon sets have proven The WMDs aren’t afraid to mix it up. Whether reintroducing classic rock staples, resurrecting old school Hip-Hop, or reinventing current top-40, the band succeeds in giving the audience a show like no other.

TODAY IN HISTORY Today is Easter Sunday, April 12, the 102nd day of 2009. There are 263 days left in the year. On April 12, 1861, the American Civil War began as Confederate forces bombarded Fort Sumter in South Carolina. In 1606, England’s King James I decreed the design of the original Union Flag, which combined the flags of England and Scotland. In 1877, the catcher’s mask was first used in a baseball game, by James Tyng of Harvard in a game against the Lynn Live Oaks. In 1908, fire devastated the city of Chelsea, Mass. In 1934, “Tender Is the Night” by F. Scott Fitzgerald was first published in book form by Charles Scribner’s Sons after being serialized in Scribner’s Magazine. In 1945, President Franklin D. Roosevelt died of a cerebral hemorrhage in Warm Springs, Ga., at age 63; he was succeeded by Vice President Harry S. Truman. In 1955, the Salk vaccine against polio was declared safe and effective. In 1961, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first man to fly in space, orbiting the earth once before making a safe landing. In 1981, the space shuttle Columbia blasted off from Cape Canaveral, Fla., on its first test flight. In 1983, Chicagoans went to the polls to elect Harold Washington the city’s first black mayor. In 1989, former boxing champion Sugar Ray Robinson died in Culver City, Calif., at age 67; radical activist Abbie Hoffman was found dead at his home in New Hope, Pa., at age 52. Ten years ago: U.S. District Judge Susan Webber Wright cited President Bill Clinton for contempt of court, concluding that the president had lied about his relationship with Monica Lewinsky in a deposition in the Paula Jones case. A jury in Little Rock, Ark., acquitted Susan McDougal of obstructing Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr’s Whitewater inquiry and deadlocked on two other charges, causing a mistrial. Five years ago: A federal judge allowed a nationwide ban on dietary supplements containing ephedra to take effect, turning aside a plea from two manufacturers. Abelardo Flores and Fatima Holloway pleaded guilty in Houston to taking part in a smuggling scheme that resulted in the deaths of 19 illegal immigrants abandoned in a sweltering truck trailer. Barry Bonds hit his 660th home run to tie godfather Willie Mays for third on baseball’s career list. One year ago: Democrat Barack Obama conceded that comments he’d made privately during a fundraiser about bitter working class voters who “cling to guns or religion” were ill chosen. Boston College won the NCAA hockey championship, 4-1, over Notre Dame. The United States won its second women’s world hockey championship, upsetting Canada 4-3 in Harbin, China. Today’s Birthdays: Country singer Ned Miller is 84. Actress Jane Withers is 83. Opera singer Montserrat Caballe is 76. Actor Charles Napier is 73. Jazz musician Herbie Hancock is 69. Actor Frank Bank (“Leave It to Beaver”) is 67. Rock singer John Kay (Steppenwolf) is 65. Actor Ed O’Neill is 63. Author Tom Clancy is 62. Actor Dan Lauria is 62. Talk show host David Letterman is 62. Author Scott Turow is 60. Singer David Cassidy is 59. Actor-playwright Tom Noonan is 58. Rhythm-andblues singer JD Nicholas (The Commodores) is 57. Singer Pat Travers is 55. Actor Andy Garcia is 53. Movie director Walter Salles is 53. Country singer Vince Gill is 52. Actress Suzzanne (cq) Douglas is 52. Rock musician Will Sergeant (Echo & the Bunnymen) is 51. Rock singer Art Alexakis (Everclear) is 47. Country singer Deryl Dodd is 45. Folk-pop singer Amy Ray (Indigo Girls) is 45. Actress Alicia Coppola is 41. Rock singer Nicholas Hexum (311) is 39. Actor Nicholas Brendon is 38. Actress Shannen Doherty is 38. Actress Marley Shelton is 35. Actress Jordana Spiro is 32. Rock musician Guy Berryman (Coldplay) is 31. Actress Claire Danes is 30. Actress Jennifer Morrison is 30. Rock singer-musician Brendon Urie (Panic at the Disco) is 22. Actress Saoirse Ronan (“Atonement”) is 15. Thought for Today: “Rules are not necessarily sacred, principles are.” — President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1882-1945).
