Epic snows still coming Meteorologists expect things to dry up by Tuesday morning By Matt Minich Mountaineer Editor The ski season is over in Vail, but the powder days are still coming. For the last week, the mountain and the valley have been hammered by near-constant precipitation, but officials with the national weather service in Grand Junction say that could be nearing an end. The snow that has been in the northern central Rocky Mountains for the last few days have come from two large storms, Meteorologist Dennis Phillips said yesterday. Like most of the storms that hit

Vail this year, those two started on the Northwestern Pacific coast, and were carried to Colorado by cold, arctic air. Meteorologists place some of the blame, or give some of the credit, for storms like these on La Nina, a cold weather system in the Pacific Ocean. These storms, which bring both heavy precipitation and cold temperatures, are perfectly designed powder delivery systems. Even at the tail end of April, the snow dumped from the storm Friday night provided about a foot of light powder on Vail Mountain for those skiers and

snowboarders willing to hike for it. Meteorologists expect that snow will be one of the last from a storm that appears to have settled over Western Colorado, and has produced snow or rain from Frisco to Grand Junction. “Monday night it should quit,” Phillips said. “Tuesday looks dry.” A few, more hurried storms will come through the valley later in the week, Phillips said, but the NWS doesn’t anticipate any more slow-moving systems in the near future. It’s impossible to say exactly what the weather will look like in coming weeks,

Phillips said, but meteorologists can manage a blurry peek at the future. As hard as it may be to believe now, Phillips said the NWS expects the next three months to be slightly hotter and slightly drier than the summers of years past. Of course, that kind of forecast should be taken with a grain or two of salt, said Phillips, who was only comfortable giving a very tentative summer forecast. “It looks like it’s supposed to be kindof maybe drying out,” he said.

Semi wreck in Vail...

A NATO missile struck a house in Tripoli where Moammar Gadhafi and his wife were staying yesterday, missing the Libyan leader but killing his youngest son and three grandchildren, a government spokesman said. Seif al-Arab Gadhafi was the sixth son of Gadhafi and brother of the better known Seif al-Islam Gadhafi. Moammar Gadhafi and his wife were in the Tripoli house of his 29-year-old son, Seif al-Arab Gadhafi, when it was hit by at least one bomb dropped from a NATO warplane, according to Libyan spokesman Moussa Ibrahim. “The leader himself is in good health,” Ibrahim said. “He was not harmed. The wife is also in good health.”

Sarah Palin Coming to Colo.

Sarah Palin’s support among Republicans has shrunk and there’s no evidence she’s close to saying whether she will run for president in 2012. But it’s clear she wants to be part of the conversation. [See THE UPDATE, page 10]

Around 2:15 p.m., a westbound semi truck rolled over on I-70 around mile marker 175. The truck, which was carrying refrigeration equipment, crossed through all eastbound lanes before coming to rest across the South Frontage Road, as pictured here. Firefighters from all three stations responded to the accident, and stabilized the truck. They also broke the windshield, allowing the driver to climb out unharmed. The South Frontage Road was closed for several hours while crews worked to remove the truck. Town of Vail photo.

Rob’s stated passion in coaching is: “To see the huge progress young athletes can make when they have the desire to work hard and put their chin in the fall line.” “Ski and Snowboard Club Vail is fortunate to have Rob join the staff to lead our Men’s Alpine Program. With over two decades of success coaching at all levels, Rob has a proven track record. He has demonstrated an unparalleled knowledge and passion for the sport with a

commitment to helping each individual develop their personal potential,” SSCV Executive Director Aldo Radamus said. “SSCV looks forward to welcoming Rob, wife Anje and their two young boys to our community.” Rob achieved his National Coaches Certification at the USSA National Coaches Academy in May of 2000 graduating first in his class. He also holds the USA Weightlifting Club Coach Certification, ASEP Coaching Young Athletes Certification, Advanced First Aid Certification, and the Colorado High School Coaching Association Certification.

$ Improvements coming to bike transit Projects include longer bike paths, wider shoulders Earlier this week, the ECOtrails group announced its plans for improvements to the county’s bicycle transit infrastructure. Five major projects are planned, which should be finished this year and next.

The section of trail will be ten feet wide and will go over the Eagle River. Located along Highway 6, it will also serve pedestrians, and will provide a safer passage under the Interstate 70 overpass near Eagle Road. Work on the trail should be completed some time in 2012.

Connection of Avon and Eagle-Vail trails The Town of Avon, ECOtrails, and Eagle-Vail will partner over the next two years to bridge the gap between the Avon and Eagle-Vail bike trail systems. Workers will construct a 2.2-mile segment of the Eagle-Valley Trail between Avon Road and the west end of the Eagle-Vail. The project will be funded by three grants, totaling $1 million from the Colorado Department of Transportations, Great Outdoors Colorado and Colorado State Trails.

Frontage road shoulders The town of Vail plans to widen two miles of the South Frontage Road between Ford Park and Bald Mountain to include six foot shoulders in each direction for cyclists. Highway 6 shoulders Workers with CDOT and Eagle County Engineering are working together to expand the shoulders along the highway between mile posts 153 and 158 – between Eagle

Meet Vail’s new golf pro

New Furniture Daily!

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

By Brian Alexander Mountaineer Staff Writer With the summer warmth sluggishly approaching the valley, Vail Golf Club still has some time before you can hit their links. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get to know the new head golf professional at the course. Meet 26-year-old Chris Johnson. An alumnus of Ferris State University – located in Big Rapids, Mich. – Johnson graduated with a major in Professional Golf Management and shortly after moved to the Valley in 2007. He has been on the golf course for 17 years now after he started playing as a youth during visits to his grandparents house in Lakeland, Fla. “It’s always been a goal of mine to be named the head professional at a golf course,” Johnson said. An unofficial two handicap, Johnson wants to provide outstanding customer service while working with every golfer to ensure they enjoy their experience at the Vail Club. “I want to build positive relationships with each student and guest,” Johnson said. “To make their time on our beautiful course as enjoyable as possible.” When he’ll be able to build those relationships is anyone’s guess right now, as Mother Nature keeps dumping snow all over Vail during this record-breaking year, but the crew is working nonstop to get the course open as soon as possible. They’re hoping to be up and running by the end of May. “We are here at the clubhouse getting the golf shop ready,” John-

son said. “As soon as we get some warm days and get this snow out of here we will open up.” The Vail Golf Club is a championship par 71 18-hole course. The golf course is nestled at the base of the Gore Range in the heart of the Vail Valley located at 8,200 feet. Golfers of all skill levels will enjoy watching their golf balls fly an average of 10 percent farther in this high-alpine environment. Women find the Vail Golf Club particularly enjoyable with a course design conducive to female golfers. Vail Golf Club has always offered great lesson programming and will continue to do so this year, with some newer clinics designed to get the beginner golfer more familiar with the game as well as getting the novice player more comfortable on the golf course.

The course is currently undergoing a few enhancement projects that they expect to be finished with in the near future, including new bridges on the back nine and a renovated tee box on hole seven. Johnson worked at the Vail Cascade this past golf off season in the Guest Services department, as most golf pro’s need a gig to help pay the bills in their down time. But don’t expect to see him many places besides the golf course this summer. “The best thing for me is the privilege of being around the game of golf all day,” Johnson said. “Helping people play better golf and seeing the joy in their faces when they start to hit shots they never thought they were capable of is always the highlight to my day. I feel fortunate to do something that I love.”

No crime in Mental Institute death Grand Jury finds staff ‘malfeasance’ in suffocation of inmate in facility now housing Richard ‘Rossi’ Moreau A Pueblo grand jury has found no criminal conduct by Colorado Mental Health Institute staff in the death of a patient who suffocated after being restrained while face down. The Colorado Mental Institute is the facility currently housing alleged murderer Richard “Rossi” Moreau. Moreau, who is about to stand trial for the November 2009 shooting at the Sandbar in West Vail, is undergoing a court-ordered mental evaluation at the Institute. He could be there for as long as two more months. KMGH-TV in Denver reported yesterday that the panel did find the staff committed misfeasance and malfeasance, and abused their authority, resulting in the Aug. 10 death of Troy Geske. “The grand jury finds that there was a systematic failure to adequately train staff, to insure staff followed policies for seclusion and restraint and patient safety related thereto, and to disseminate safety information concerning restraint procedures that was readily available, and if put into practice would have prevented the death of Mr.

Geske,” the report said. The state attorney general’s office, representing the Colorado Department of Human Services and the Pueblo hospital, refuted the findings of misfeasance and malfeasance, abuse of authority and breach of duty of care. It also said Geske’s death led to external and internal reviews, which have improved hospital services and programs. On the day he died, Geske had refused to take his medication and to be moved to seclusion and restraint, the grand jury found. Geske, who was overweight, died while face down, with his arms and legs restrained with leather bindings and a leather strap placed over his back to hold him down to a gurney, KMGH reported. The grand jury found poor execution of the prone restraint. “The staff member controlling the patient’s torso was using a disapproved control technique by using his forearm to apply pressure to the patient’s back during the entire restraint process,” the grand report said. “During the restraint process, Mr. Geske appeared to be strug-

gling by trying to lift his head and torso off the bed.” In addition, KMGH reported, the grand jury said, “During the process of applying the restraints, a staff member used inappropriate pressure to the back of the patient’s head, holding his face at or near the surface of the mattress” that covered the surface of the gurney where he was restrained. After Geske was restrained, he was left in a room with a door that had a window. “It is apparent that Mr. Geske was not under direct observation at all times,” the grand jury report said. When staff noticed he wasn’t moving, they rushed in to revive him, but there were no shears in the room as there should have been to quickly remove the straps from his wrists and ankles, the grand jury said. Last fall, the Colorado Department of Human Services said the mental hospital had eliminated the use of prone restraint.

Vail’s different daily alternative


From the team behind “Hoodwinked,” the comedic portrayal of the fairy tale Red Riding Hood, comes the animated family comedy “Hoodwinked Too!” The sequel finds our heroine, Red (Hayden Panettiere), training with a covert group called the Sisters of the Hood. But Red is forced to cut her training short when she gets an urgent call from Nicky Flippers, head of the super-secret Happily Ever After Agency. At “Prom,” every couple has a story and no two are exactly alike. Several intersecting stories unfold at one high school as the big dance approaches; “Prom” portrays the precarious passage from high school to independence as some relationships unravel and others ignite. For Nova Prescott (Aimee Teegarden), it’s a battle of wills as she finds herself drawn to the guy (Thomas McDonell) who gets in the way of her perfect prom.

ED & OPERATED Gypsum Animal Hospital at home in valley

Founder brings care, amenities to thousands of pet lovers By Phil Lindeman Mountaineer Staff Writer When Dr. Stephen Sheldon arrived in Colorado to launch a veterinary practice, Eagle County provided the perfect locale. “The pet owners here love their pets,” said Sheldon, the founder of Gypsum Animal Hospital and a transplant from Florida. “It’s funny when you see people, because you don’t ask ‘do you have a dog?’ but ‘what kind?” The hospital, located off Highway 6 near the Eagle County Regional Airport, has been Sheldon’s joie de vivre for the past four years. He built it “from scratch” and continues to bolster the clinic’s reputation through a slew of unique services. Near the top of the list: health care plans. “Veterinary medicine is still more affordable than human care, but with health plans, we can save someone 20 or 30 percent in out-of-pocket expenses,” Sheldon said, noting the majority of his clients opt for a plan. Pricing changes per animal, just as with humans, but basic plans are built around puppies, kittens, and adults. The plans help two-legged clients afford various amenities found only at Gypsum. Earlier this year, Sheldon brought a part-time orthopedic vet onboard to treat joint issues, and crafted a new digital X-ray suite – the first of it’s kind in the county. While specialized care is a priority for Sheldon, Gypsum Animal Hospital is a full-service clinic. He and

another full-time vet, Nadine Lober, regularly see nearly 2,000 pets, for everything from check-ups and vaccinations to surgery and dentistry. The rest of the staff, which includes Sheldon’s wife and daughter, runs the boarding service, laboratory, and pharmacy, all housed on-site. As a member of the Veterinary Cancer Society, Sheldon takes particular interest in cancer patients, and has several such cases on his client list. This verve for cancer care is not unfounded and, according to Sheldon, a growing trend. He quotes recent statistics showing 11 percent of vet visits are for cancer, a trend he attributes, oddly enough, to better pet care. “We’ve been doing a great job of keeping pets alive over the past two

decades, which means as they get older, they’re more likely to develop cancer,” Sheldon said. Cancer tends to strike pets around 7 or 8 years old – equivalent to 50 or 60 in humans – and can compound problems already borne of old age. Sheldon has all the equipment for chemotherapy at the clinic. For more complicated cases, Sheldon may refer owners to the topranked vet school at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, with follow-up care at his office. Sheldon, himself a graduate of the respected University of Florida program, has found an ideal home in the Vail Valley. “It’s great to meet people and learn about the relationships they have with their pets,” he said. “No two days are ever the same.”

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Law coalition and Hakim al-Zamili from the Sadrist coalition say lawmakers approved the controversial settlement yesterday. Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s Cabinet approved the compensation plan in September after Baghdad and Washington reached an agreement to end years of legal battles by U.S. citizens who claim to have been tortured or traumatized during Saddam’s 1990 invasion of neighboring Kuwait. But many Iraqis consider themselves victims of both Saddam’s regime and the 2003 U.S.-led invasion and wonder why they should pay money for wrongs committed by the ousted dictator.

Fashion firms rush to copy the royal gown

Seconds after Kate Middleton emerged from her car outside Westminster Abbey in a ball gown with lace sleeves, designers around the country, glued to their TV sets, were sketching her look, setting in motion a mad rush for mass-produced versions that are expected to be in stores as early as late June. For brides-to-be who can’t wait even four weeks, David’s Bridal, the nation’s largest bridal chain, was already trumpeting a strapless look from Oleg Cassini, paired with a lacey bolero jacket, on its website as an already available standin as it scrambled to push out modified knockoffs of the real thing to stores by

[From page 1]

The Daily Sentinel reports the Ute Water Conservancy District says it likely wouldn’t approve the agreement as it is now. The Grand Junction-based district is concerned about the Shoshone hydropower plant’s water right on the Colorado River, which is more senior than Denver Water’s and helps ensure stream flows stay up. Denver Water has agreed, during specified times, to honor the plant’s senior right even if the plant temporarily isn’t running, but the district is concerned about what happens if the plant goes away completely. It also doesn’t like how water stored in Green Mountain Reservoir in central Colorado would be accounted for

Obama, Trump together for correspondents’ dinner

President Barack Obama is shifting from consoler to comic for his appearance before a mix of politicians, celebrities and journalists at Washington’s premier black-tie dinner. And some of his most prominent would-be rivals are in attendance, including Donald Trump. The billionaire businessman was among those who arrived yesterday for the White House Correspondents’ Association annual dinner, after a week when he challenged the president on conspiracy theories about his birthplace and the White House released Obama’s detailed Hawaii birth certificate. But in a town consumed by politics and partisanship, the dinner is typically a light-hearted affair and an opportunity for the president to show off his humorous side

Syrian troops kill four at mosque in restive city

Syrian troops killed four people yesterday while storming a mosque that became a focal point for protesters in the besieged southern city of Daraa, and security forces in Damascus kept dozens of women from marching on parliament to urge President Bashar Assad to end his crackdown on a six-week-old uprising. Heaping further punishment on relatives of those killed , they were told to hold small funerals with only family members invited, an activist said, in an apparent attempt to keep the services from turning into anti-Assad protests. Similar orders were given last week, but most people did not follow them, said the activist, Ammar Qurabi, who heads the National Organization for Human Rights in Syria.

victims in splintered Southern towns say volunteers are ensuring they’re well-fed and warm at night. At least a few, though, say they need more from the government: Help getting into their homes and cleaning up endless debris. Across the twister-ravaged South, students and church groups aggressively tended to those who needed it most, clearing away wreckage and handing out food and water. Wednesday’s tornadoes marked the second-deadliest day of twisters in U.S. history, leaving 341 people dead across seven states — including 249 in Alabama. Thousands were hurt, and hundreds of homes and businesses have vanished into rubble. Federal Emergency Management Agency workers handed out information to people in shelters about how to apply for help. National Guard soldiers stood watch, searched for survivors and helped sift through debris. Churches transformed into buzzing community hubs.

Colo. water district unhappy with proposed deal

One western Colorado water district isn’t on board yet with a proposed deal between Denver Water and Western Slope water interests on how to share water.

Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean is scheduled to deliver the commencement speech to Naropa University graduates next weekend. The former presidential candidate and Vermont governor will address them May 7 in Macky Auditorium on the University of Colorado campus in Boulder. The Camera newspaper reports 194 graduates and 119 undergraduates are receiving degrees from Naropa this year. The University of Colorado’s graduation ceremony is scheduled for Friday at Folsom Field. Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. founder, Chairman and co-CEO Steve Ells is scheduled to deliver the commencement address. Ells graduated from CU in 1988.

Crews dealing with deep snows on Trail Ridge Rd. Rocky Mountain National Park crews are still reporting deep snows on Trail Ridge Road. The road was opened for the season last year around the end of May. This year, park officials say the earliest it will likely open is May 27. Trail Ridge is billed as the country’s highest continuously paved road. It climbs to 12,183 feet and connects the towns of Estes Park and Grand Lake. Road crews on the east side of the road say the 10 to 14 feet of snow in one part is the most they’ve seen in years. A recent storm dumped lots of snow. And Colorado’s mountains are getting hit again this weekend. —Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

In draft, Broncos still need a run-stuffer In the first six rounds, Denver hasn’t drafted a defensive tackle By Arnie Stapleton Special to the Mountaineer The Denver Broncos infused some much-needed youth into their defensive backfield. They still have a gaping hole on the defensive line. The Broncos selected AP All-America safety Quinton Carter of Oklahoma in the fourth round yesterday, one day after grabbing safety Rahim Moore of UCLA in the second round. Both said they count Broncos safety Brian Dawkins as their hero and look forward to learning from him. But they might ultimately speed the end of Dawkins’ career. One of four thirtysomething starters in Denver’s secondary, Dawkins will be 38 next season and is coming off an injury-riddled 2010. The Broncos didn’t address their biggest need — defensive tackle — in the first six rounds. They did take a chance in the fourth round on tight end Julius Thomas of Portland State, a raw player who is hoping to join Antonio Gates and Jimmy Graham in making a successful jump from the hardwood to the gridiron. Thomas played just one year of football after completing four seasons of basketball. Denver, which swapped a pair of picks with Green Bay, grabbed versatile Cal linebacker Mike Mohamed in the sixth round. They also own two seventhrounders. The Broncos went into their first draft with the new front office trio of football chief John Elway, coach John Fox and general manager Brian Xanders in need of a major makeover on defense, and they took four defensive players with their first five picks, including pass-rusher Von Miller of Texas A&M and middle linebacker Nate Irving, who survived a horrific car accident that cost him his 2009 season at N.C. State. Their biggest hole was at tackle after ranking 31st in the league against the run last season, surrendering a whopping 155 yards a game on the ground. And this draft was especially deep on defensive tackles. Elway said he wanted to build the

AP photo.

foundation of the team through the draft, but after bypassing the top-rated D-tackle in Alabama’s Marcell Dareus with the second overall pick, Fox said the Broncos wouldn’t be pressured into selecting a run-stuffer from the college pool this weekend. “We will have, at some point, another clump of players to choose from in free agency,” he said, adding, “We won’t take a guy we have graded in the fifth round in the second just because he is a defensive tackle.” When the Broncos traded down in the second round, they lost out on the chance to get Clemson’s Jarvis Jenkins but runstuffers Stephen Paea and Marvin Austin were still available when they were on the clock with Nos. 45 and 46 and instead chose Moore and Miami offensive

lineman Orlando Franklin. The Broncos’ incumbents in their defensive backfield are Dawkins and Renaldo Hill at safety and Champ Bailey and Andre Goodman at cornerback. All are 32 years old except for Dawkins, who is 37. Cornerback Perrish Cox showed immense promise as a rookie last year. But he’s facing a sexual assault case that could land him in jail. Carter said he was surprised the Broncos selected him after picking Moore a day earlier. “Honestly, yes, very surprised,” he said. “... I’m sure we’ll have a great future, a strong backfield and also learn from Brian Dawkins, who is my favorite safety in the game.” That’s just what Moore said, adding

he’s also a big fan of Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey. “These guys are my favorite DBs ever. You know, I even have a picture of them on my phone and my laptop,” said Moore, who called Dawkins right after his selection. “I’m a huge fan. I just can’t wait to get hooked up with them and get to work.” When that happens is anybody’s guess. The NFL reinstated its lockout Friday night after its first legal victory during the impasse with players over how to divvy up the proceeds of a $9 billion business. The ruling came after 17 veterans had taken advantage of a short window Friday to show up at work to meet with coaches and pick up playbooks before the league put the “closed” sign back up. Quarterback Tim Tebow wasn’t among them. The second-year pro who started the final month last season but will have to beat out Kyle Orton to remain the starter in 2011 told a church audience Friday night that he didn’t get into town in time to join his teammates at Dove Valley and pick up his playbook. “When I landed, the lockout was back on,” Tebow told the crowd. Except for first-rounders who were able to pick up their playbooks Friday, none of this year’s draft class can get those materials from teams until the league’s labor situation is resolved. Asked if he would contact Miller and ask him to photocopy the playbook for him, Moore’s eyes lit up during his introductory news conference at Broncos headquarters yesterday. “That would be a great idea,” Moore said. “A playbook is very important to get so we won’t come in with nothing on our minds, you know we would get to have some type of (introduction) to the team. But, that’s a great idea. I’m going to try to get in contact with him and get his number immediately.” “I kind of feel the same way,” Irving said. —This story appears courtesy of The Associated Press
