Huskies beat the Tigers By Brian Alexander Mountaineer Staff Writer On a beautiful sunny afternoon day that actually resembled baseball conditions, the Battle Mountain Husky baseball team shined in a 14-4 win over the Summit Tigers in a game played down in Glenwood Springs. The Huskies, just a week removed from their big win against rival Eagle Valley, once again played like a program on the rise with their ten run rule victory – a win that has one team ahead by at

least ten runs after five innings of play. “It feels good to get a win like this,” said Husky starting pitcher Chris Duran. The game started off as if a pitcher’s duel was going to take place, as both teams were held scoreless in the first inning, but Summit found themselves on the board first after a nice two out single



scored a run in the top of the second inning. The Huskies didn’t wait long to answer as catcher Davey Honda led the bottom of the second off with a first pitch base hit. With Honda leading off of first base, in stepped Duran, and Duran hopped all over the first pitch he saw and ripped a

double down the third baseline setting up runners in scoring position. After a pair of sacrifice fly outs to center field off the bats of Eric Weiss and Riley Robbins, the Huskies took the lead heading into the third inning 2-1. Summit reclaimed the lead in the top of the third, thanks to four straight singles to open the inning along with good aggressive base running. The Tigers brought three runs across the plate to take a two run advantage at 4-2. With one out in the bottom half of the [See BASEBALL, page 16]

No bin Laden photos to be released

President Barack Obama ordered grisly photographs of Osama bin Laden in death sealed from public view yesterday, declaring, “We don’t need to spike the football” in triumph after this week’s daring middle-of-the-night raid. The terrorist leader was killed by American commandos who burst into his room and feared he was reaching for a nearby weapon, U.S. officials said. He said any release of the photos could become a propaganda tool for bin Laden’s adherents eager to incite violence.

Doctored bin Laden corpse photos go viral

Doctored photos purporting to show Osama bin Laden’s corpse rocketed around the world on television, online via social media and in print almost as soon as his death was announced. The photos on the Internet did not come from the operation that killed bin Laden, according to a senior defense official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the mission was classified. Reuters reported on its photography blog [See THE UPDATE, page 12]

Forest travel plan unveiled

Under New Management!

Plan will cut hundreds of miles of trails

Locals Serving Locals For All Your Automotive Needs

By Matt Minich Mountaineer Editor Officials with the White River National Forest, which covers 2.3 million acres of land in the Central Rockies, announced yesterday they plan to remove more than a thousand miles of roads and trails from their management. About 275 of those miles are in Eagle County. Generally speaking, this will mean less options for motorized travel in the forest, White River National Forest Supervisor Scott Fitzwilliams said during a conference call yesterday. The removal of the trails is just one element of the WRNF’s new Travel Management Plan which officials have been trying to hash out since the late ‘90s. “I think we’ve planned long enough,� Fitzwilliams said. “The time has come for implementation.� Fitzwilliams is the latest in a string of “four or five� forest supervisors who have worked on the plan, and described it yesterday as the crowning achievement of his career. The plan provides a healthy balance of motorized and non-motorized uses,

and describing the various uses allowed on them. “If there are no speed limit signs, it’s a lot harder for people to go the speed limit,� Fitzwilliams said, explaining simple clarification will likely reduce the amount of violations. Before any of those signs can be put up, though, the plan has to go 45 days without being appealed. Members of the public, and representatives from all kinds of forest user groups will spend the next month and a half reviewing the plan, and deciding if they want to request an appeal. That period isn’t the same thing as a public comment period, though – that process is over.

he said. Those roads and trails removed from the management plan will be “decommissioned�, meaning they will be removed from all official maps and, for all intents and purposes, treated by Forest Service officials as if they don’t exist at all. Non-motorized travel on these paths will still be allowed, but anyone driving a motor vehicle on them could be subject to a hefty fine. The plan would also make more than 200 miles of “non-system� roads and trails official. Those paths range from so-called “bandit trails�, made by rogue mountain bikers and off-roaders, to old mining and logging roads, which are not officially maintained but have never been reclaimed by the forest.

Local ski areas unaffected Because they operate under special use permits with the Forest Service, Vail and Beaver Creek ski areas will be unaffected by the new plan. Likewise, most winter travel will be unchanged. The trails that will be decommissioned are used in the summer, and most areas – like Vail Pass – that are currently open to snowmobilers will remain open. The plan is available in its entirety at

Waiting to go forward Changing the level and type of access to the forest is a key part of the plan, Fitzwilliams said, but it’s not the most important part. The travel plan that has been developed over the past decade is the first of its kind for the forest, he said. Workers with the Forest Service are standing by with hundreds of signs marking trails and roads,

Dems bring balance to map wars Lawmakers hope to find agreement on redistricting By Peter Marcus The Denver Daily News State Democrats yesterday unveiled a second congressional redistricting map, this time with the hope of striking a compromise. But with the map proposing moving a large part of conservative Douglas County from Congressional District 6 to Congressional District 2, which includes liberal Boulder, Republicans are already raising concerns. Congressman Jared Polis (D-Boulder) currently represents CD 2, and Congressman Mike Coffman (R-Aurora) currently represents CD 6. The proposal would also move Park and Fremont counties, currently in Republican CD 5, to Democratic CD 2. Congressman Doug Lamborn (R-Colorado Springs)

represents CD 5. The map proposed by Democrats yesterday is their second proposal, and a bit less controversial because it does not pair Boulder with conservative Mesa County, home of Grand Junction, currently in Congressional District 3. Instead, the map proposed yesterday would keep the majority of Congressional District 3 whole. Congressman Scott Tipton (R-Cortez) currently represents that district. The Eastern Plains would also be split between Republican CD 4 and an expanded Republican CD 5. Currently, the majority of the Eastern Plains is in CD 4, but the Democrats’ proposal yesterday would make the southern Eastern Plains part of an expanded CD 5. There is not much controversy there because Republicans repre-


sent both districts. Congressman Cory Gardner of Yuma currently represents CD 4, and Congressman Lamborn currently represents CD 5. Democrats yesterday called their proposal the “Colorado compromise.� “Democrats have been working with Republicans on a compromise map that is responsive to the issues raised by the public while creating and maintaining competitive districts,� Sen. Rollie Heath (D-Boulder) co-chair of the Joint Redistricting Committee, said in a statement. “What we’re presenting today is that map based on what we heard from the communities we visited, one that takes into account the messages we received in the com[See MAPS, page 16]

Local kids tour White House Kelly Liken students met Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personal chef A walk through the garden turned into a walk through history for Chef Kelly Liken and the Sowing Seeds entourage that accompanied her to Washington, D.C. on April 19 as the group received a personal tour of the White House Victory Gardens, courtesy of the Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chef, Sam Kass. The trip was a result of an invitation from Kass, following Michelle Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s evening at Restaurant Kelly Liken during the First Ladyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ski trip to Vail in February. In addition to Liken, the Vail Valley contingent included her husband Rick Colomitz, Sowing Seeds director Sandra Story and her son Quinn and Mary Beth Ottley and her sons Dudley and Patrick. After passing through three security checkpoints, the group found themselves outside the First Ladyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office, waiting nervously for Kass to join them for the tour. While Mrs. Obama was unable to join the Sowing Seeds group, she wanted them to know that she personally helps plant the Victory Gardens each year and regularly visits the garden. Once underway, the garden tour turned into the history lesson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sam directed our attention to the largest raised bed in the garden that

Created by the Vail Valley Foundation in conjunction with Liken, Sowing Seeds provides the oppor-

Mountain bike racers are an odd bunch. Take it from Dudley Duel, a 50-year-old Leadville resident who rode from New York to Denver in the summer of 1980. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always thought mountain biking was insane,â&#x20AC;? said Dudley, a long-time road cyclist who took up trail riding three years back. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The difference between riding and racing is no matter how hard you think you ride, you never go as hard as when someone tries to pass you. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even think of falling.â&#x20AC;? For the past few months, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to imagine this as the same morning commute shared by Duel, or any of the other pedal enthusiasts who assembled at yesterdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s short-track bike race at the Eagle County Fairgrounds, the second in a four-race series sponsored by the Vail Recreation District. The bikers today â&#x20AC;&#x201C; more than 70 of them, nearly 20 more than the pool at last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season opener â&#x20AC;&#x201C; came wrapped in gear of their own, albeit for weather that was much more inviting than a few weeks back: Spandex, leather gloves, bike shorts, t-shirts. The series is touted as laid-back by organizers and competitors, a sort of warm up to the first set of â&#x20AC;&#x153;seriousâ&#x20AC;? races for the season, the Westin Riverfront Vail-Beaver Creek Mountain Bike Race Series later this month. This carefree attitude spilled over to the gaggle of spectators, who cheered on each

early morning ride before an afternoon snow. As for the weather yesterday: the wind was brutal, yes, and it had a lingering bite despite the May sun. But it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t snowing, raining, or otherwise unpleasant and, for this, the assembled mass of mountain bikers was glad. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is still cold for me, but it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the worst,â&#x20AC;? said Cindy Sanchez, a recent transplant from Prescott, Ariz., who raced in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;sportâ&#x20AC;? category, the seriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; name for intermediate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I originally came to watch but got excited once I was here and had to sign up.â&#x20AC;? Decked in a full bodysuit, tinted glasses, and a slick helmet, Sanchez seemed in her element despite the

ment. But more than anything, the series was a way to meet like-minded people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I came out to meet other bikers,â&#x20AC;? said Sanchez, herself a preferred road cyclist who hits the short-track for fun. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m expecting to hurt for 20 minutes, but hopefully it will jumpstart the motivation to get on my bike more regularly.â&#x20AC;? Sanchez embodies the spirit of the scene at the fairgrounds, an event where the announcer reminds racers constantly of free beer later at the Dusty Boot, and dubs the lone climb â&#x20AC;&#x153;girlfriend hill,â&#x20AC;? because it is the one place you need to impress your significant other. People are serious about biking, but once the race is over, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about the culture. There were winners, of course, spread across two youth racers and three adult categories. Local elite biker Jake Wells won the expert round, followed closely by Damien Fraser of Vail, who took first at last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event. But as Gunion is quick to mention, placement means little during the event. Everyone comes simply there to ride, including the winner of the youth round, 11-year-old Sam Brown. The fifth grader from Brush Creek Elementary School nearly resembled Wells when his heat finished â&#x20AC;&#x201C; barely out of breath, and ready to get back on his bike. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a challenge, Brown said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be back next week. I just like to race.â&#x20AC;?

Psychological & Educational Evaluations •Do you wonder if your child is learning up to their potential?

In “Win Win,” struggling attorney Mike Flaherty (Paul Giamatti), who volunteers as a high-school wrestling coach, takes on the guardianship of an elderly client in a desperate attempt to keep his practice afloat. When the client’s teenage grandson runs away from home and shows up on his grandfather’s doorstep, Mike’s life is turned upside down as his win-win proposition turns into something much more complicated than he ever bargained for.

From the team behind “Hoodwinked,” the comedic portrayal of Red Riding Hood, comes the animated family comedy “Hoodwinked Too!” The sequel finds our heroine, Red (Hayden Panettiere), training with a mysterious 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, who returns as head of the super-secret Happily Ever After Agency.

Duo brings Americana to Grand Ave. Grill

Michael Jude, John Michel play patio between John Oates tour By Phil Lindeman Mountaineer Staff Writer For Michael Jude, one-third of the Aspen-based Great Divide Band, shifting between the corner bars of New York City and the patio at Grand Avenue Grill in Eagle is second nature. More often than not, though, the city takes second to the hills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you play in New York, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to get lost, not only with the audience but why you play music in the first place,â&#x20AC;? said Jude, a professional musician for over a decade. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Out here, nothing is hurried. You look at someone in the eyes, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking right back at you.â&#x20AC;? Jude, along with bandmate and longtime gigging partner John Michel, brings a blend of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Americana and classic rock â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rollâ&#x20AC;? to the Eagle-based restaurant tomorrow night. Music runs from 6 p.m. to â&#x20AC;&#x153;lateâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I first came, I fell in love with this place and the people,â&#x20AC;? Jude said of Grand Avenue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great venue â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sort of untapped, you know?â&#x20AC;? Local music aficionados have come to know the duo over the past year, and continually return for inventive covers of rock and country icons, ranging from Credence Clearwater Revival to Bob Dylan to Patsy Cline. Jude and Michel plan to play at Grand Avenue nearly every Friday this summer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that is, when they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t touring across the East Coast with marquee names like John

Oates, or recording at the renowned Great Divide Studios in Aspen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always something interesting, this life,â&#x20AC;? said Jude, who moved to Aspen from Massachusetts over 14 years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very, very lucky to do what I do and play music every day for a living.â&#x20AC;? Like many pro musicians, Jude and Michel donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t limit themselves to a single instrument. As a duo, the two make a well-balanced sixstring mix: Jude lays claim to the electric guitar, and he lauds Michel

as a talented acoustic player with a penchant for fingerpicking. Both share vocal duties. If things go as planned, tomorrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show is the first in a recurring series of events on the patio, dubbing it the â&#x20AC;&#x153;summer kick-off.â&#x20AC;? Jude and Michel also played last week (as well as several weeks before), but were wrangled inside thanks to mounds of late-April snow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really want to pack it out,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are really sick of the bad weather.â&#x20AC;?

Two men and two women are accused of pinning down a man who has learning disabilities, tattooing the word “RAPEST” on his forehead and shocking his genitals with a stun gun before beating him unconscious with a baseball bat, police said yesterday. The accused told police they attacked Stetson Johnson, 18, because he tried to have sex with one of them, according to a police spokesman. Detectives found no evidence to support their claims, he said. Johnson, of Oklahoma City, said he is acquainted with all four but has never tried to hurt any of them. He said the April 17 attack began

Stetson Johnson, 18, holds back his hair to show a tattoo on his forehead in his home in Oklahoma City, yesterday.

When Hyojin Jenny Hwang wrote on Facebook that she was saddened by the sight of young Americans like herself jubilantly cheering Osama bin Laden’s death, the angry response was swift, even from friends. “One friend told me she felt judged for feeling happy,” said the 30-year-old mother from New Jersey. “And another one simply unfriended me on Facebook.” It’s one thing to be satisfied that the world’s most wanted terrorist has been brought to justice. But where does satisfaction end and gloating begin? It’s a question being posed online by ordinary Americans, religious figures, various commentators and several 9/11 widows.

People along the lower Mississippi River and its tributaries packed their belongings and emergency workers feverishly filled sandbags as high water pushed its way downstream yesterday in a slow-motion disaster that could break flood records dating to the 1920s. From Illinois to Mississippi, thousands of people have already been forced from their homes, and anxiety is rising along with the mighty river, even though it could be a week or two before some of the most severe flooding hits.

The Justice Department under President Barack Obama has taken a harder line against anti-abortion activists accused of trying to block access to clinics, suing at least a half-dozen of them under a federal law that lay mostly dormant during the Bush administration. The law, written to protect people who seek or provide abortions, was revived after Obama took office and in the wake of the 2009 slaying of Kansas abortion provider George Tiller, who was shot to death moments before Sunday services were to begin at his Wichita church.

Rival Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas signed a landmark reconciliation pact yesterday, ending a four-year rift that had divided the territory envisioned for a future Palestinian state. The deal plunged Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking deeper into uncertainty as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called it a “mortal blow to peace.” The agreement, which followed years of bitter acrimony between the two Palestinian movements, was made possible in large measure by the political changes sweeping the Arab world and the deadlock in U.S.-brokered peace talks with Israel. A unity government foreseen by the accord would also allow the Palestinians to speak with a single voice if they go ahead with plans to ask the United Nations to recognize Palestine as a state during the annual General Assembly session in September. —Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

SPORTS Griffin voted top NBA rookie

Blake Griffin played his entire rookie season like a man making up for lost time. Now that the Los Angeles Clippers’ dynamic dunker has been named the league’s top rookie in a landslide, he’s already thinking about ways to improve on a delayed NBA debut that was well worth the wait. Griffin accepted the Rookie of the Year award yesterday, becoming the NBA’s first unanimous choice for the award in 21 years. The No. 1 overall draft pick out of Oklahoma in 2009 missed all of the 2009-10 season after breaking his kneecap in the Clippers’ final preseason game. But Griffin returned with one of the most impressive debut campaigns in a generation. Griffin frequently thought back to that season in limbo while picking up his award during a party at the Clippers’ training complex. “To miss my entire first year and then be able to be up here today is definitely satisfying,” Griffin said. “When I got injured, I just decided I had to come back even better. I had to keep improving even while I couldn’t play, and I dedicated myself to .” Griffin received every first-place vote from a panel of 118 media members, easily outdistancing Washington’s John Wall. The Clippers’ 22-year-old power forward is the first unanimous choice since San Antonio’s David Robinson in 1990, and just the third in NBA history after Ralph Sampson in 1984.

All Carlos Zambrano could do was leave Dodger Stadium and wonder whether he could have stopped Andre Ethier’s 29-game hitting streak. The Chicago Cubs’ excitable right-hander never got the chance, because Ethier missed his first game of the season with an inflamed left elbow. As a result, Zambrano dominated the Los Angeles Dodgers for eight innings in a 5-1 victory yesterday. Chicago scored all of its runs on homers by Geovany

I was surprised when they told me he wasn’t in the lineup today.” Ethier, who has seven hits in 16 career at-bats against Zambrano including a home run, remained two games shy of the longest streak in Dodgers history that was set by Willie Davis in 1969.

Capitals electrocuted by Lightning

Sean Bergenheim scored two goals and Dwayne Roloson stopped 33 shots as the surging Tampa Bay Lightning completed a series sweep of the top-seeded Washington Capitals with a 5-3 victory in Game 4 on last night. Playing on consecutive nights for the first time this postseason, the Lightning extended their winning streak to seven games and advanced to the Eastern Conference finals for the first time since their 2004 Stanley Cup championship season. For Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals it was yet another bitter postseason disappointment. Rookie Michal Neuvirth stopped 32 shots for Washington, but Bergenheim scored twice in eight minutes during the second period to build a 3-1 lead that induced chants of “sweep, sweep, sweep” from a sellout crowd of 20,835. The Lightning’s big three of Martin St. Louis, Vincent Lecavalier and Steven Stamkos have elevated their

Bruins rout Flyers to take 3-0 series lead

Zdeno Chara and David Krejci scored in the opening 63 seconds and the Bruins added two more goals in a 95-second span in the second period last night to beat the Philadelphia Flyers 5-1 and take a 3-0 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals. One year after watching their 3-0 series lead disappear in an unprecedented collapse, the Bruins again moved one game from sweeping Philadelphia in the conference semis. This year they have a chance to do it at home, with Game 4 on tomorrow night at the TD Garden. Tim Thomas made 37 saves for Boston, which hasn’t reached the conference finals since 1992.

games, but so has Bergenheim, who has a team-leading seven goals through two rounds. St. Louis’ sixth goal of the playoffs, with 3:08 remaining, finished Tampa Bay’s scoring. Ryan Malone and Marc-Andre Bergeron added goals for the Lightning, who have not lost since dropping into a 3-1 hole against the Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round. Marco Sturm, John Erskine and John Carlson scored for the Capitals. The Lightning won the first two games in Washington, then pushed the Capitals to the brink of elimination by winning Game 3 in Tampa on Tuesday night.

third and nobody on base, it was lead off hitter Joe LyBargerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turn to energize his team, as the center fielder hustled into second base after drilling a fastball off the third basemanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s glove. After back-toback walks for Battle Mountain, Honda laced a single into the outfield scoring a pair of his teammates to tie up the game at fours. Next up was pitcher Chris Duran. Looking to help himself out Duran lined a single to left field scoring the go ahead run and in the process hustled into second base. After another run batted in by right fielder Weiss, third baseman Robbins hit a towering shot to deep left center field scoring a run while ending up at third base. With Robbins at third, Summitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pitcher threw a wild pitch allowing the Husky base runner the chance to score and in doing so pushed Battle Mountainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead to 8-4 after three innings of play. The Tigers would go down quietly in the fourth after Duran retired Summit without giving up any runs. Unfortunately for Summit, the Huskies werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about to do the same in their half of the inning.

batters later on a base hit by teammate Andrew Pellerito. The inning saw Battle Mountain get aggressive on the base paths after a pair of walks and an infield single, leading to a couple Tigers mistakes and giving Battle Mountain some unearned runs that extended the Huskies lead to 13-4 heading into what would be the final inning of play. Once again, Duran and his defense behind him held Summit scoreless in the top of the fifth, ensuring the Huskies would only need one more run to finish the game in the bottom half of the inning. After another lead off single by Webb, Joe LyBarger stepped up to the dish. On a perfectly executed hit and run, the Huskies center fielder roped a game ending triple into the right center field gap scoring the speedy Webb all the way from first base â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Webbâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dad ran track in high school.
