Edwards now a college town

Colorado Mountain College gets approval for four-year degrees By Matt Minich Mountaineer Editor

Starting today, students can apply to seek four-year college degrees at the Colorado Mountain College campus in Edwards. A two-year community college since 1967, CMC finished a long accreditation process yesterday for two baccalaureate

degrees – one in business administration and another in sustainability. CMC officials have been seeking accreditation for 18 months, and jumped through the final hoop in the process – approval from the state’s Higher Learning Commission – around 9 a.m yesterday. “It’s a historic time,” CMC President Dr. Stan Jensen said in a conference call. “It’s like winning the Triple Crown.”

CMC administrators don’t know how many applications to expect, but Jensen said yesterday that 1,100 CMC students expressed interest in the programs in a survey taken last year. “Those are very soft numbers,” he said, adding that actual numbers could be half that. CMC will continue to follow an “open access” philosophy, CMC Spokeswom-

an Debra Crawford said, and will hire more staff as needed to meet demand. The college has already hired three new full-time teachers for the programs. Lower-level classes will still be open to all that register, Crawford said, but applicants for the 300 and 400 level classes will need more than 45 hours of college [See CMC, page 9]

Conference center funds reconsidered By Phil Lindeman Mountaineer Staff Writer After more than an hour of impassioned input from a handful of community members, the Vail Town Council decided yesterday to nix plans for an August vote on the use of nearly $9.4 million in tax-generated money, originally collected to build a conference center. The unanimous decision came after five individuals expressed fears, often building off each other, that an Aug. 23 ballot would cut short the window

for public input on ways to spend the money. “I care about this town I’ve been a part of for 24 years,” Stephen Connolly, of event management outfit Highline, told the council. “You need to hear what people are saying on the post office and the street. I think it is imperative you find input from the general public rather than the select group you’ve contacted so far.” The council is currently juggling four proposed ways to use the funds, including renovations to the Vail Golf Clubhouse; the addition of another

field at Ford Park; expansion of the Vail Village Welcome Center and Ski Museum; and most recently, the expansion of Ford Park Gardens, spearheaded by the Vail Valley Foundation. All told, the projects cost more than $20 million, and the conference center funds would be split among all four. In a memo released last week outlining the pros and cons of a special election, Vail Town Manager Stan Zemler suggested it would improve voter turnout. It would have been held Aug. 23 and cost $12,000, putting pressure on [See FUNDS, page 8]

Eagle-Vail between Vail & Beaver Creek

Commissioners ratify contracts for $2.95M in purchases By Matt Minich Mountaineer Editor At their meeting yesterday, the Eagle County Commissioners voted to add two land parcels located near Dotsero to the list of land acquisitions they hope to make with the county’s open-space fund. Fed by a property tax increase approved by county voters in 2002, the $21 million fund can only be tapped for the purchase, maintenance, and preservation of open space. Mandated to make the best possible use of the fund, the commissioners hope to take advantage of low recession-era land prices to get the most possible acreage for the money. The two parcels discussed yesterday are both situated along the Colorado River, and would be used as access for boaters and fisherman. The larger piece, a 232-acre parcel on the west bank of the Colorado River north of the Colorado River Ranch, would be bought for $2.25 million. That number is from a 2009 assessment of the property, but the contract ratified by the commissioners yesterday calls for a revised The above map, provided by Eagle assessment. open space parcels in yellow.

Pro Cycling Challenge will follow Coors Challenge

Vail hears update on proposed route, funding for August bike race The USA Pro Cycling Challenge has seen a recent name change, but plans for the largest modern road biking event in Colorado are moving ahead swiftly. Known as the Quizno’s Pro Challenge just weeks ago, the weeklong race will start in Avon on Aug. 22, trace its way into Vail for a time trial on Aug. 28, and continue through the mountains until ending in Denver on Aug. 28. The Vail Valley Foundation, which represents both Avon and Vail as a local organizer for the race, presented an update to the Vail Town Council yesterday on proposed routes and funding. Ceil Folz and Adam Luek, representatives for the organization, unveiled the Vail portion of the bike route. It will largely follow the old Coors Classic Time Trial route, albeit some changes in scenery since

the race’s final year in 1988. Racers in the USA Pro Cycling Challenge will being in front of Solaris, weave through Vail Village, and continue along U.S. Highway 6. They will end near the top of the Vail Pass. “We have not only a lot of heritage, but a lot of ways to speak to previous records, previous riders, and biking as a whole,” Luek said about using the Coors Classic route. According to Folz, using Vail as a staging area for a time trial is better for town exposure and overall tourism. “If you look about the stages you have for an event like this, the time trial becomes a great way to interact between each rider,” Folz said. In regards to the athletes, staging also keeps them in Vail longer, typically overnight. To account for this, the town agreed to put $175,000 to-

ward expenses as a host city, along with $25,000 in in-kind services. The majority goes to lodging for athletes and their entourage – drivers, trainers, mechanics. The overall budget for the potion of the race in Eagle County is $318,000. Avon put no money toward the total, opting instead to support the race through in-kind services. The VVF is responsible for the remainder of the roughly $118,000. Folz said the organization is still working with the Vail Police Department and transit officials to arrange parking and road closures issues for the Vail Pass portion of the race. Areas of Interstate 70 may need to be close intermittently to allow racers to return once they reach the end of the time trial.

Most recently, Dr. Lange has assumed the role of Assistant Principal at Brush Creek Elementary School, where she has been jointly responsible for the overall safety and learning of over 500 students. In this position, Lange has served as the Counselor, Response to Intervention Coordinator and Primary Disciplinarian, and has co-lead the implementation of Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports Previous to this role, she worked as an ESL Instructor at Colorado Mountain College, a Special Education Teacher, Assistant Principal and Principal at Stone Creek Charter School, a Special Education Teacher at Cascade Middle School in Bend, Ore., and at Kealakehe High School in Kailua Kona, Hawaii; an Adjunct Professor for the Department of Education at Adams State College and a Department Head of Special Education for Battle Mountain High School.

the area of differentiation, Kat has worked with all of us to deepen our understanding, and adapt our instruction, for the diverse learners we serve. Brush Creek will experience a great loss with Kat’s departure, but I am excited for the Red Sandstone community to inherit such a talented, well-respected, hard-working individual.”

Free Game Night at Loaded Joe’s, Avon

Close your eyes and feast your ears upon Yamn, a smooth sonic explosion born in the Rockies. Four years and 100,000 road miles after they met in Breckenridge, the trance-fusion rockers have built a vision, a future toward which they’ll launch headfirst, no-holds-barred with smiles and an insatiable vigor. The quartet, from around the U.S., met while fulfilling the ski bum dream in the mountains. The band relocated to Denver in 2008 to fulfill another dream, one that shifted and evolved as they discovered their sound in the blossoming music scene on the Front Range. Not to be forgotten is the fifth member of the band: a stage show and lighting rig that will intoxicate the eyes. Yamn is about the live experience, one that scintillates the senses with more than just tranced-out tunes and emotional peaks. Samana Lounge brings you the live experience of Yamn tonight in Vail Village for only $5.

Feel like a fun night at home, but still want to go out and grab some drinks with friends?

the council to approve a ballot question by June. To meet this deadline, the council would have heard updates on the four proposed projects May 3. Kaye Ferry, Chairwoman of the Eagle County Republican Party, said such a crunched timeline cut out many important groups, including local business owners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ill-advised to have these conversations when people arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t around to give input,â&#x20AC;? Ferry said, noting many people leave town until Memorial Day. She later said a June meeting would be better attended. Council member Margaret Rogers was the first town official to give her opinion on the contested ballot timing, and said she saw â&#x20AC;&#x153;no compelling reason for an election in Augustâ&#x20AC;? and would not support it. Others chimed in, noting more time will result in a better use for the money. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to look at the synergy these projects have together,â&#x20AC;? Mayor Dick Cleveland said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To put it out there and ask for a crapshoot is not in the best interests of the town.â&#x20AC;? A question will likely still be placed on the November ballot and wording must be finalized by midAugust.


Support for golf clubhouse The evening session came after an open house where representatives with each project presented their plans, along with conceptual drawings and estimated economic impact. The event, announced early last week, was attended by less than ten community members. Almost all agreed the golf clubhouse proposal is the most appropriate, and keeps with the spirit of the original conference center fund. During his presentation, Vail Recreation District Executive Director Mike Ortiz, who oversees the clubhouse, explained how renovations could bring more events to the clubhouse, most notably weddings. He compared the project to Donovan Park, which is already booked for the whole of 2011 and half of 2012. A fund in limbo Timing has been a sensitive issue for the funds since they were first collected between 2002 and 2005. In 2005, the conference center plans were abandoned and the money was left to sit. Over a year back, the town asked former council member Kent Logan to poll local groups on ways to

use the money, all as viable ways to bolster year-round tourism. Logan presented the four projects to the council on April 5. At the time, he said no single project could use the $9.4 million and meet the economic goal of the fund. Connolly, who along with Ferry spoke several times during the meeting, suggested the council extend the public outreach even further than November to find one overarching project, what several referred to as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;silver bullet.â&#x20AC;? This view was echoed by others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an attitude across the land that government shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be spending money simply because it is burning a hole in their pocket,â&#x20AC;? said Jim Lamont, executive director of the Vail Homeownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you step back and look at this, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you have.â&#x20AC;? While no council members directly agreed the funds could be spent on one project, Mayor Proterm Kim Newbury disagreed with Lamontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s notion, saying the money has already been pushed aside for nearly six years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We promised in 2005 that we would either refund it or put a question before voters,â&#x20AC;? Newbury said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and now it is time to act.â&#x20AC;?


the Colorado Department of Transportation is due to be replaced, and the county hopes to use this 10-acre parcel as a substitute. The parcel has been appraised at $700,000, but another appraisal is required by the

credit and a GPA higher than 2.3. Upper-level classes will be available at each of CMC’s seven campuses this fall.

A growing campus for a growing town In Edwards, the expansion of programs is timed to coincide with the opening of an expansion to the campus itself. The expansion, scheduled for completion some time this summer, will more than double the size of the building; officials and architects hope it will also help build a community around the campus. During a tour last week, officials said they hope the expansion, which includes a kitchen, a student center, and a host of other amenities, would change the “commuter college” atmosphere of the campus and help build relationships between students. Officials are considering another addition that would further separate the Edwards campus from its reputation as “commuter campus”: a dormitory. The Edwards campus is one of three in the CMC system that officials are considering converting from commuter to residential campuses. Campuses in Breckenridge and Rifle are also being considered. How many students, if any, would be staying in a dormitory at the

[From page 1]

Edwards campus isn’t clear yet, Jensen said yesterday, but campus CEO Peggy Curry said in an interview earlier this week that a dorm would probably host about 100 students. No state funding In the wake of the economic downturn, Colorado lawmakers have struggled to balance the state’s budget each year. In that process, drastic cuts have been made to almost all state funding, including funding for higher education. Because of this situation, the legislation that permitted CMC to go forward with seeking accreditation for four-year degrees specifically bars it from receiving state funding. Instead, Jensen said, the programs will be funded almost entirely with tuition dollars. Tuition for the upper-level courses will be higher than for lower-level courses. They will cost $95 per credit hour for in-district students, $200 for in-state and $405 for out-of-state. In an interview earlier this month, Jensen said he anticipates the college will lose money on the programs in their first year, but should turn a profit after three years.

Britain is sending up to 20 military advisers to help Libya’s ragtag rebel force break a military stalemate with Moammar Gadhafi’s army, even as NATO acknowledges that airstrikes alone cannot stop the daily shelling of the besieged opposition-held city of Misrata. In Misrata, an opposition bridgehead in western Libya, rebels have held out despite daily rocket and artillery barrages, in part because they continue to get supplies by sea.

Montanaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney general launched an inquiry yesterday into the charity run by â&#x20AC;&#x153;Three Cups of Teaâ&#x20AC;? co-author Greg Mortenson after reports questioned whether Mortenson benefited from money donated to build schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Attorney General Steve Bullockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

statement yesterday follows investigations by â&#x20AC;&#x153;60 Minutesâ&#x20AC;? and author Jon Krakauer into inaccuracies in the book and how money donated to the Bozeman, Mont.-based Central Asia Institute was spent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Three Cups of Teaâ&#x20AC;? was released in 2006 and sold more than 3 million copies. That notoriety helped Mortenson grow the Central Asia Institute by generating more than $50 million in donations, Krakauer said.

Boston is breaking ground on a new museum marking one of the most famous events in American history. The mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office says the city and state have approved a $3 million grant for the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum and the state convention center authority has pledged $18 million. An earlier museum at the site in Fort Point Channel burned in 2001 after being struck by lightning. Griffinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wharf, the original site of the December 1773 tea party when colonists dumped tea into the harbor to protest British taxes, was nearby. The museum will feature replicas of the three British ships involved in the tea party.

ATHLETIC STUFF Giants cool off Rockies

San Francisco spoiled Colorado Rockies ace Ubaldo Jimenez’s return from the disabled list last night, as Jonathan Sanchez gave up two hits over 6 1-3 innings and the Giants won 6-3. Jimenez (0-1) went on the DL after an awful season opener, the culprit a cut cuticle on his pitching thumb that prevented him from getting oomph on his heater and spin on his breaking pitches. The Rockies didn’t slack off during their ace’s absence, jumping out to a 12-4 start. After being dominated by Tim Lincecum who flirted with a no hitter against the Rockies on Monday, Colorado’s coaching staff said they were glad their own ace was back on the mound last night. He was rusty, however, and once again the Rockies found themselves playing catch-up against a very good pitcher — Sanchez hasn’t allowed more than three earned runs over his last 11 starts dating back to Aug. 30 of last season, forging a 1.75 ERA over that span. Jimenez’s second pitch plunked Aaron Rowand, who came around to score on Buster Posey’s single before Pablo Sandoval deposited an 84 mph slider into the Rockies’ bullpen in right-center for a three-run homer, his fifth. Jimenez settled down after that, allowing just two more hits through five innings. He walked two and struck out six. He was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the fifth and Seth Smith’s sacrifice fly scored Ty Wigginton. Huff’s two-run homer off Jose Morales made it 6-1 in the seventh. Those are the only runs the Rockies bullpen has allowed in its last 15 innings of work.

per Bowl champion Green Bay Packers host the New Orleans Saints at Lambeau Field. New England travels to Miami in the other opening Monday night game, and the New York Giants will visit the Washington Redskins and the New York Jets will host the Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 11, marking the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The first Sunday features several high-profile games, including Indianapolis at Houston and Atlanta at Chicago. But much of the national focus will be on Washington and New York, the two cities most affected by the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. “That stadium is going to be full of emotion, not only the people from the area but in the entire country,” said Jets coach Rex Ryan, who will be matching wits with his brother, Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. “The fact that it’s the 10th anniversary of 9/11, that’s where the focus should be, not me playing against my brother.” The Redskins and Giants kick off at 4:15 p.m., with the Jets and Cowboys at 8:20 p.m. “For nearly 10 years, we have felt an obligation to use our platform to make sure none of us ever forget

NY Marathon legend Grete Waitz dies at 57 Judge decision on lockout At a time when many still felt that women didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expected soon belong in long-distance running, Grete Waitz proved

The NFL and its locked-out players resumed their court-ordered talks yesterday after a three-day break, with no sign that an agreement is any closer. The lockout is in its second month and a federal judge is expected to decide soon on the playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; request to halt the NFLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first work stoppage since 1987. Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen joined Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Atlanta Falcons President Rich McKay, Green Bay Packers CEO Mark Murphy and Carolina owner Jerry Richardson on the NFL side yesterday. Named plaintiffs Ben Leber, Mike Vrabel and Carl Eller represented the group of current, former and future players who are asking for the injunction on the lockout and have filed an antitrust lawsuit against the league. All declined comment at the end of the long day of negotiation. The two sides will meet again today in front of U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan. U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson said at a hearing on April 6 that she would rule â&#x20AC;&#x153;in a couple of weeksâ&#x20AC;? on the playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; request to lift the lockout. Wednesday will be exactly two weeks from the hearing.

them wrong with her outstanding performances. She set a world record in the first marathon she ever ran in New York in 1978. She won the marathon gold medal at the inaugural world championships in 1983. A year later in Los Angeles, she took second behind American Joan Benoit in the first womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Olympic marathon. She won the London Marathon twice, in 1983 and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;86, the Stockholm Marathon in 1988 and earned five titles at the world cross country championships from 1978-81 and 1983. Her last victory in the New York Marathon came in 1988. And yesterday, at a hospital in her native Oslo, Norway, Waitz died after a six-year battle with cancer. Her husband Jack was by her side. There was no word on what type of cancer felled the marathon legend, who disclosed no details about her condition after being diagnosed in 2005. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was Grete who proved that it was possible for women to compete in the longer distances,â&#x20AC;? said Svein Arne Hansen, president of the Norwegian Athletics Federation.
