Newspaper distribution mischief is suspected in Vail following a the recent disappearance of 15 Vail Mountaineers from the Starbucks in Vail Village. Mountaineer staffer Jennifer Ellis says she had just finished making her daily drop off of Vail Mountaineers to the coffee shop when she saw Vail Daily Marketing Manager Mark Bricklin exit the shop carrying a large stack of newspapers. “I couldn’t quite see what papers were in his hand,” said Ellis. “But I was curious, so I went back in to the coffee shop and found our papers to be missing.” The barista behind the counter at the time said he did not see what happened to the papers, but confirmed they had indeed went missing and not enough time had elapsed for them to disappear through normal channels. Vail Daily Publisher/Editor Don Rogers says Bricklin was following the strictures of the Starbucks rack arrangement. He insists Bricklin was simply removing the Mountaineers from their rack, and that he replaced them in a blue Vail Mountaineer box outside and did not throw them away. The Starbucks barista who Ellis handed the papers to says he put them in the appropriate location--the baskets next to the couches--and not the Daily’s rack. But Mountaineer Publisher Jim Pavelich suspects something altogether different is at hand. “I suspect Bricklin is just another rabid reader of the Mountaineer,” said Pavelich, who further suspects that Bricklin was intending to distribute them to his younger friends in an effort to impress them.

Edwards I-70 project could get derailed Some Singletree residents want noise abatement in roundabout project By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer

It’s going to cost Eagle County taxpayers $13,000 for another study to tell them there’s traffic noise along Interstate 70 in Edwards – and how much. The whole mess could derail an $11 million federal project to build four roundabouts at the Edwards I-70 interchange. It works like this: A group of Singletree homeowners want to know is how much noise the highway generates and what’s going to be done to reduce it. All the Citizens for Noise Abatement say they want is what’s being done to reduce noise in other areas of the local I-70 corridor – berms and noise-reducing walls and stuff. “We’re looking for the least expensive possible solution,” said Singletree resident Steve Lamontagne, who’s spearheading the Citizens. The stick part of this carrot-and-stick combo is that if the Citizens don’t get something satisfactory, litigation could ensue. And if the project is tied up in litigation in December when the bids are supposed to go out, that $11 million will fly somewhere else like it’s escaping from prison. So, the county commissioners agreed Tuesday to spend $13,000 on another study to measure highway noise. Among the proposals is a 30-foot earthen berm between I-70 and that bit of Singletree. “If this project is not ready to go to advertisement in December, as scheduled, we’ll need to reallocate that funding. The funds need to be obligated,” said CDOT spokesperson Nancy Shanks. The Citizens raised the stakes when they filed a petition with Eagle County and fired off a letter to the CDOT regional manager asking for a muzzle on I-70. CDOT says nothing of the sort will happen. “We have $11 million to pay for construction, but we can’t pay for any noise abatement,” said Shanks. “We’re not creating any more traffic noise. It’s not like we’re putting in another highway or more lanes. It’s an existing interchange that’s being improved for safety.” Location, location, location “Where we live has everything to do with it. The state’s conclusion is that there’s a noise problem within the halo area,” said Lamontagne.

He said that the conclusion is that CDOT’s 2004 study found that the primary highway noise is generated by I-70 – no surprise there – but that there is no provision to differentiate between noise sources, be they highways, roundabouts or exit ramps, said Lamontagne. “We want everyone to have all the information,” said Lamontagne. “Let’s get everything on the table then we’ll decide what course to take.” They’ve retained the Denver law firm of Duncan, Ostrander and Dingus. Authority at wit’s end At Wednesday’s Edwards Community Authority meeting, Eileen Jacobs rolled her eyes, shook her head and went to the heart of the issue: “They live along the interstate. They don’t have a leg to stand on, but they can still kill the project by filing a lawsuit.” Jacobs and other members of the Edwards Community Authority were trying to figure out what to do about threats of potential litigation that could derail the entire project. Authority representatives come from every Edwards entity. They made several observations, including: • The group asked for $15,000 to help pay their attorney, said authority member Doris Dewton. • CDOT did a noise study in 2004 and the area passed muster. That study was updated in 2006, said authority member Todd Williams. • A 30-foot earthen berm would need to be 200-feet wide at the base, and there’s not that much room, said Ben Gerdes of the county’s engineering department. Another option is a massive concrete wall. • The Citizen’s petition had signatures from 33 properties. Lamontagne says it’s 50 properties. Singletree has about 900 homeowners, said Jacobs. • No one from the group showed up at Berry Creek’s annual meeting, said Dewton who represents Berry Creek with the Edwards authority. In a Tuesday work session, the three Eagle County commissioners said that if they have to spend $13,000 for a noise study, they’d do it if it would help save the $11 million federal project. But they’re not happy about it. “The berm would have to be as high as the highest window to do any good,” said Commissioner Peter Runyon. As for the Citizens, they’re just happy that their governments are throwing a little more science at the situation. “We’re encouraged that they’re redoing the study,” said Lamontagne. The results should be available by the middle of next month.

House passes cell phone ban Colorado legislature moves one step closer to keeping phones from ears of motorists


By Peter Marcus Special to the Mountaineer The Colorado House on Wednesday backed a bill that would ban drivers in Colorado from talking on handheld cell phones while driving.   House Bill 1094 passed by a vote of 39-25, with one lawmaker absent.      Along the way, the measure has earned bipartisan support on both the pro and con sides of the argument, though most of its support has come from Democrats.    Support has been fueled by passionate testimony from the mother of a 9-year-old who was fatally struck last November by a driver talking on her cell phone.  Shelley Forney’s earlier testimony in the House Transportation and Energy Committee left many lawmakers in tears.    The bill, sponsored by Rep. Claire Levy, D-Boulder, would prohibit adults from using a cell phone without a hands-free accessory, with the exception of police officers, firefighters and paramedics, as well as certain commercial truck drivers.  Drivers under the age of 18 would be banned from using cell phones at all while driving.  Sending text messages while driving would also be banned.    Violators would face a $50 ticket for a first offense.    Supporters say there is irrefutable evidence to support that drivers talking or texting on handheld cell phones are more at risk for traffic collisions.  Drivers using cell phones while driving last year contributed to five fatal accidents, 41 injuries and 241 property damage cases in Colorado, according to the Colorado State Patrol.     The State Patrol, Colorado Medical Society, State

On Wednesday the Colorado House passed a bill that would ban drivers in Colorado from talking on hand held cell phones while driving. HB 1094 now heads to the state Senate for consideration.

Farm Insurance and Verizon Wireless are all supporting the measure.   Opponents, however, say there are too many potential driving distractions for lawmakers to attack individually.  One argument is that children playing in the back of a minivan can pose just as much of a distraction as cell phones, but that lawmakers would never ban children from playing in the back of a car.    “It seems we’re picking out one distraction because it’s politically expedient to do so,” Rep. Frank McNulty, R-Highlands Ranch, said during an earlier hearing.    Levy argues that just because lawmakers can’t make driving completely safe doesn’t mean they shouldn’t do what they can to save lives.      “Driving is a dangerous activity, it requires the full attention of the driver,” she said during an earlier hearing.  “Yet these days it seems people take pride in the number of tasks they do in addition to driving.”    House Bill 1094 now heads to the Senate for consideration.  Gov. Bill Ritter has said he would sign the bill into law if it makes its way to his desk.    Denver Daily News staff writer Gene Davis contributed to this report.

ALLEGEDLY! Avon Detective heads up identity theft case Lakewood man cashed $24,000 in bunk checks By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer For more than a year, Avon Police Detective Paul Arnold has been working on an identity fraud case that spanned 10 Colorado counties. It all came to a head on Friday. That’s when a Colorado grand jury indicted 45-year-old Timothy Kuskowski of Lakewood for allegedly stealing identities of nearly two dozen people in Colorado. According to the grand jury, Kuskowski passed fake checks in the Avon and Vail City Market stores as well as at other stores in Fremont, Garfield, Grand, Gunnison, Jefferson, Mesa, Montrose, Summit and Teller counties between December 2007. Arnold followed him every step of the way. “The thing kept on growing, from Rifle to Evergreen,” Arnold said. “I said this is covering way too much ground for me, so I called the Attorney General’s office and talked to them about the case.”

Arrested in Delta When all was said and done, Kuskowski cashed fake checks totaling $24,000 in a six-month period, according to the grand jury. Checks ranged from $40 to $747. Kuskowski was arrested in a grocery store parking lot in Delta in June after trying to pass a fraudulent check. “A lot of work went into this. It’s satisfying to get it over with, but it’s like any other case where there are victims involved,” Arnold said. “People don’t even know their identities are stolen. They’re in shock.” Authorities believe that many more fake checks may have been written, since there were gaps in the check numbers that were investigated and many were missing. “This is a typical case, unfortunately, but this guy probably did a lot more than we know,” Arnold said. Arnold was able to get fingerprint evidence and handwriting evidence from some of the checks. When Kuskowski was arrested, Delta police officers also found multiple ID cards and numerous forged checks. “Basically, what people like him prey on is that somebody has to do their job and do it quickly,” Arnold said.

Lionshead luxury hotel plan gets another 90 days Mark Masinter ‘excited’ about 90-day extension By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer A Texas developer has another 90 days from Vail town officials to move forward with plans to build two luxury hotels, a conference center and other amenities on the town-owned Lionshead parking structure. But the terms of approval are now something new and unknown. Mark Masinter, a representative of Open Hospitality Partners/Hillwood Capital, has been trying to get a Vail Resorts parking deed restriction lifted from the property so he can build. Chief executive Rob Katz has said he will not lift the deed restriction until a new parking garage is built at the planned $1 billion Ever Vail ski village in West Lionshead. On Tuesday night, town council members decided 6-1 to give Masinter the chance to work with town attorney Matt Mire to come up with a new development agreement for the site. But before voting, several questioned point-blank if Masinter, whose company is associated with Texas billionaire H. Ross Perot, had the money to move forward. Financing is there “They’re a very substantial group, and they have


significant, substantial wealth,� Masinter said of Open Hospitality Partners. “I would not be wasting my time, if I didn’t believe we had the financing.� But when asked specifically by Mayor Dick Cleveland if he thought he could sell planned “for sale� condos in the project, Masinter said, “not if we had to sell it today, no sir.� Several unfinished hotel and condominium projects in Vail have struggled to sell units in recent months, apparent victims of the recent economic downturn set off by a mortgage crisis in October. A great opportunity Regardless of current economic conditions, Masinter sounded happy at the outcome of the vote. “I’m excited that they’re giving me the opportunity to work on this with them,� Masinter said outside of the town council meeting. Mire said he expects to have a preliminary new plan ready to go in June New details in the plan could include a yearly fee for the right to build, based on comments from Cleveland. A new plan also could require Masinter to pay the town back for any improvements the town makes to the parking structure that later need to be “ripped out.� The town has a $1.5 million federal grant to help build a Lionshead transportation center, which could be built in or near the parking garage. Masinter got preliminary approval from the town council last summer to build a W Hotel, a St. Regis Hotel, a conference center, shops, condos and parking,


many activities including Giant Egg Racing, inflatable obstacle course, carnival games, and don’t forget the Jelly Bean Guessing contest presented by Wishes Toy Store. There will also be a Petting Zoo, refreshments and of course, the hunt for over 10,000 eggs stuffed with candy and prizes. The town is asking that you do not bring your pets to the event, which is for children ages 9 and under. There will also be an Easter Egg Hunt in Vail on Saturday, families and their children ages two to 10 are encouraged to join the Vail Recreation District (VRD) for its annual hunt taking place from 4 to 11 in Lionshead. The free event will begin at 9:45 a.m. with a visit by the Easter Bunny followed by a quest for prizes and eggs at 10 a.m. The event will be held rain, snow or shine and complimentary bags will be handed out to carry the eggs and prizes. For more information, contact VRD Youth Services by email or call 479-2292.

Hamburgers, parmesan fries, truffle oil and all-natural milkshakes make for a uniquely yummy, all-American meal at Larkburger restaurant in Edwards. If Larkburger founder Thomas Salamunovich has his way, those burgers, fries and milkshakes may soon be all over the state and possibly the nation. Salamunovich and his partners recently opened a new Larkburger in Boulder, and plans a new location to open soon in the Denver Tech Center. “People like street food,� Salamunovich said. “We all grew up eating this.� But don’t forget — the Vail chef cut his teeth in fine dining establishments. Salamunovich is well-known in the Vail Valley for Larkspur restaurant in Vail and the new Avondale restaurant in the Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa in Avon. Larkburger restaurant menus make a major nod to those fine dining choices, with tamari-ginger dressing, truffle aioli and tuna burgers. Several vegetarian options, include a portabella mushroom sandwich and low-carb fans can get lettuce wraps instead of bread. Lettuce wrap alternative Wife Nancy, a co-partner in the project, has problems eating gluten, which led to the somewhat unusual lettuce wrap alternative over the traditional bun, Salamunovich said. “You can always indulge with cheese on your burger and the $5 shake,� Salamunovich says. “To me, it’s not about always saying, ‘Eat light.’ Everything in moderation, right?� There’s also fresh juice squeezed on site, turkey burgers, organic potatoes and Coleman’s natural beef. Biodegradeable eating utensils are made of potatoes. So what do investors say? “We must be out of our mind, is the thought,� said Adam Baker, Salamunovich’s business partner, who opened the Boulder store. “We have had great success

in Edwards. We have a really good concept and thought it would resonate really well in Boulder.� Exceeding expectations Boulder sales so far have exceeded expectations, Salamunovich said. The restaurant is located in the Village shopping center near Arapahoe and 28th Streets, which is seen as an intersection of where college students meet the community. “I thought we would do well with the Boulder crowd and our focus on all natural ingredients, wholesome food and our environmental approach,� Baker said. “Fundamentally, people like our hamburger. It tastes good.� He probably wouldn’t open another fine dining restaurant in the current economic client, Salamunovich said. But customers appreciate that they feel “invited, nurtured and welcomed� at Larkburger restaurants, he said. The “Larkburger� was originally an item on Larkspur’s gourmet menu. “The world keeps moving, and we believe we have a great product,� Baker said. “Other people see that as well, so we’ll keep moving forward.�

Baby Boomers to buy mountain market more MP Kids Tights

National economist lays out real estate trends

100% Cotton Made in Denmark

328-5566 1143 Capital Street, Eagle

By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer


Baby Boomers may be the saving grace of the Vail Valley real estate market in the next few years, a national economist says. Well-to-do Boomers want to buy second homes now and retire in them in the coming years, according to Lawrence Yun, chief economist for the National Association of Realtors. Those are folks who are definitely still looking, he said at a lunch for the Vail Board of Realtors at the Vail Cascade Resort on Wednesday. “The long-term situation is good, because Baby Boomers want those second homes,� Yun said. On the down side, even wealthy Americans are not as flush as they were just six months ago, Yun said. They “have lost substantial wealth in the stock market, and real estate values have gone down nationally.� Even worse, jumbo loans — those mortgages of $417,000 or more — “are still not functioning,� Yun said. With the average home price in Eagle County ranging from $1.2 million to $1.5 million, jumbo loans are more common here than in other parts of the country. Cash is king “Right now, cash is king,� Yun said. “The credit market, overall, needs to loosen up.� February home sales in Eagle County were up slightly over January, with 55 homes selling during the month for an average price of $1.575 million, according to statistics from Land Title Guarantee Co. based in Eagle, which keeps such records. Regional home sales have slowed down in recent months, mirroring a national economic downturn set off by a mortgage crisis in October. In coming months and years, international clients from newly emerging markets may also buy into the Vail Valley, Yun said. Those newly wealthy folks are expected to come from Brazil, Russia, India and China. Half of the world’s population lives in those four countries, which are expected to be in a high growth phase as soon as the current crisis is over, Yun says. Conspicuous consumption?

million new, middle-class residents coming into their own every year, he says, with many of those folks ready to show off their new wealth with new homes in the mountains of Colorado. “Because they are newly rich, we can expect conspicuous consumption, so maybe there will be some lift from that,� Yun said. In addition, the national economy is expected to get a boost in the second half of 2009 from various government stimulus packages, but it’s still not good, Yun said.

Crew retakes US ship from Somali pirates

In a riveting high-seas drama, an unarmed American crew wrested control of their U.S.-flagged cargo ship from Somali pirates Wednesday and sent them fleeing to a lifeboat with the captain as hostage. The destroyer USS Bainbridge, one of a half dozen warships that headed for the area, arrived at the scene Thursday morning a few hours before dawn, said Kevin Speers, a spokesman for the company that owns the Maersk Alabama. He said the boat with the pirates was floating near the ship, the first with an American crew to be taken by pirates off the Horn of Africa. Speers said officials were waiting to see what happens when the sun comes up. Crew members had been negotiating with the pirates Wednesday for the return of the captain. A family member said Capt. Richard Phillips surrendered himself to the pirates to secure the safety of the crew. “What I understand is that he offered himself as the hostage,� said Gina Coggio, 29, half sister of Phillips’ wife. “That is what he would do. It’s just who he is and his responsibility as a captain.�

A photo of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia receiving an apparent bow from President Obama is stirring up quite a controversy. “Such an act is a traditional obeisance befitting a king’s subjects, not his peer. There is no precedent for U.S. presidents bowing to Saudi or any other royals,�

[From page 1]

said the conservative Washington Times. An Obama aide speaking anonymously denied that the president was bowing. “It wasn’t a bow. He grasped his hand with two hands, and he’s taller than King Abdullah,� the aide was quoted as saying by Wednesday. The caption attached to the Getty Images photo said the president was bowing.

Chavez’s ‘New World Order’

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said his two-day visit to Beijing this week is part of the creation of a “new world order.� The frequent U.S. critic told reporters that power in the world is shifting from America to countries such as Iran, Japan and China. “We are creating a new world, a balanced world. A new world order, a multipolar world,� Mr. Chavez said on arriving in China the evening before a scheduled Wednesday meeting with China’s president and Communist Party leader Hu Jintao. “The unipolar world has collapsed. The power of the U.S. empire has collapsed,� he said. “Everyday, the new poles of world power are becoming stronger. Beijing, Tokyo, Tehran .. It’s moving toward the East and toward the South.� Mr. Chavez has made Beijing a frequent stop in his global travels to promote his agenda of anti-American world unity, stopping in the Chinese capital no less than six times since rising to power in 1998 elections.

Spies have compromised US electric grid

Spies hacked into the U.S. electric grid and left behind computer programs that would let them disrupt service, exposing potentially catastrophic vulnerabilities in key pieces of national infrastructure, a former U.S. government official said Wednesday. The intrusions were discovered after electric com-

panies gave the government permission to audit their systems, the ex-official said. The official was not authorized to discuss the matter and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. The inspections of the electric grid were triggered by fears over a March 2007 video from the Idaho National Laboratory, which had staged a demonstration of what damage hackers could do if they seized control of a crucial part of the electric grid. The video showed a power turbine spinning out of control until it became a smoking hulk and shut down. Although the resulting audits turned up evidence of spying sometime earlier, the former official told the AP that the extent of the problem is unknown, because the government does not have blanket authority to examine other electric systems. “The vulnerability may be bigger than we think,” the official said, adding that the level of sophistication necessary to pull off such intrusions is so high that it is “almost without a doubt” done by state sponsors.

Alien commission in Denver?

Local alien expert Jeff Peckman is out of this world with optimism. After two false starts — which generated national headlines — Peckman says he is ready to beam to Denver voters a ballot initiative that would create the Extraterrestrials Affairs Commission. The seven-member panel would be charged with collecting data and research to prepare Denverites in the event of a possible alien encounter. Two city officials questioned Peckman yesterday on his proposal, clearing the way for the alien expert to file a petition and start collecting signatures.  Peckman ex-

Sylvester still pumps

Half naked photos of Rocky and Rambo star Sylvester Stallone on location in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, filming his latest work “The Expendables,” have surfaced, and the 62-year-old strongman still has that famous physique, albeit with a few more tattoos than you may remember. “He is in amazing shape for a man of his age and seemed to be doing all his own stunts,” the London Telegraph quoted one onlooker as saying. “The Expendables,” written by Stallone, is a thriller which also features one of Stallone’s former Rocky co-stars, Dolph Lundgren, better remembered as “The Russian.”

James Wark, 59, died nine times, before medical workers were able to stabilize him, reports Fox News. Wark said when he went into cardiac arrest, “he passed out and didn’t wake up for 2 weeks,” according to the report. “Doctors used something called a hypothermia protocol. They used cool packs on James’ chest and thighs, to cool his body temperature to 91 degrees ... to try to lower the body temperature, to decrease the metabolism in the brain. This gives the brain a break, while other organs, like the heart, compete for oxygen.” Since his near-death experience Wark has started eating healthier and has quit smoking.

Marvin Webster dead at 56 Marvin Webster, a fierce shotblocking center who helped lead the Seattle SuperSonics to the 1978 NBA finals, was found dead in a hotel bathtub in Tulsa, Okla. He was 56. His body was discovered in his room Monday morning in the downtown Ambassador Hotel, police said Wednesday. Foul play is not suspected and the death apparently stemmed from an illness, police spokesman Jason Willingham said. He added that the former 7-foot-1 center had been living at the hotel and employees grew concerned after not seeing him for several days. The medical examiner office said the cause of death has not been determined. W. Charles Bennett, Webster’s former agent and current financial adviser, said Webster’s death was related to coronary artery disease. Known as “The Human Eraser,” Webster spent nine seasons in the NBA. He averaged 16.1 points during the SuperSonics’ playoff run in 1978. He signed with the Knicks the following season and played six years in New York.

Trial set for surfer accused of beating women at bar

Isn’t surfing suppose to be a peaceful sport? An August trial date has recently been set in Mammoth, CA for Chris Ward, Ward allegedly threw punches and connected on three women during a bar melee at Whiskey Creek in January. The Wardo knocked one of the women unconscious before being knocked unconscious himself by a group of males who later threw him

out on the street to be discovered by police. Ward was later charged with a felony. By an account in Surfer Magazine, Jake Wallace, the bar manager, said the event was “really disturbing.” Wallace followed by stating, “I’ve seen a lot fights working here, but nothing like this.” A felony conviction probably would end Ward’s season and jeopardize his standing on the tour.

Eagle Valley Bull Stomp ro By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer If you’re atop a bull, strapped there with leather that might have recently been one of his relatives, you’re not at the top of the food chain. Bulls and cowboys will have that discussion again Saturday night when the Eagle Valley Bull Stomp comes to the Eagle River Center. It’s part of the Lane Frost Challenge Tour, one of the top bull riding series running. There’ll be 40 riders signed up for this event. The top 10 get to come back for the second go-round, when a different bull will try to kill them some more. “We should have riders from all over,� said Eldon Monsen who’s producing the event and providing most of the bulls. No one wants to see anyone injured, said Monsen, but it’s always entertaining to see both cowboys and creatures tossed around a little. Bulls don’t want to be ridden. They learn that the harder they try top get rid of their rider, the faster it happens and the happier they are. “Some of them just seem to know their job,� said Monsen. “You want them to have attitude, but be manageable, with a lot of athletic ability.�

Western Heritage Night Lane’s parents, Clyde and Elsie Frost, will be on hand for Saturday’s event. They hit the road occasionally to help promote and preserve America’s Western heritage, and to help raise funds for the Lane Frost Scholarship Fund. The scholarships go to National High School Finals Rodeo contestants who want a college education, a goal their son pursued. Lane Frost, for whom the tour is named, was arguably the best bull rider who eve lived. He was killed after a successful ride at Cheyenne’s Frontier Days. He’d gotten off and was trying to get away when the bull caught up and killed him. “That’s all he ever wanted to be,� says Clyde Frost, Lane’s father. “It wasn’t long before we knew that he was going to ride bulls. It was him wanting to, we

didn’t force him. We tried to discourage it even. We’d rather he’d been a banker, a lawyer or something. It’s a tough life.� The plaque by the Eagle River Center’s front door says the building is dedicated to helping preserve Eagle County’s western heritage, and Monsen said the Frosts will be right at home. “I was fortunate enough that they let me put on a bullriding event in Vernal, Utah, Lane’s home town,� said Monsen. That led to Monsen partnering with Clyde and Elsie to establish the Lane Frost Challenge Tour, which stops in the Eagle River Center on Saturday.

ILVTOFU â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Inappropriate slang or abbreviated love of tofu? One Colorado womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love for tofu has been judged X-rated by state officials. Kelly Coffman-Lee wanted to tell the world about her fondness for bean curd by picking certain letters for her SUVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license plate. Her suggestion for the plate: â&#x20AC;&#x153;ILVTOFU.â&#x20AC;? But the Division of Motor Vehicles blocked her plan because they thought the combination of letters could be interpreted as profane. Says Department of Revenue spokesman Mark Couch: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;FUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; because some people could read that as street language for sex.â&#x20AC;? Officials meet periodically to ensure state plates stay free of letters that abbreviate gang slang, drug terms or obscene phrases. The 38-year-old Coffman-Lee says tofu is a staple of her familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diet because they are vegan and that the DMV misinterpreted her message.

The Bull Stomp is part of the Lane Frost Tour and it’s stopping in the Eagle River Center at the Eagle County fairgrounds. Western Heritage Day starts at 5 p.m. when the gates open, and the bucking starts at 7 p.m. with 40 riders and lots of bulls who wake up in the middle of the night wishing they were crankier than they already are, and getting their wish. From left, that’s Eagle Mayor Ed Woodland, Broadway Cafe Boss Pete Woodward and on the right is Eldon Monsen, who’s putting the Bull Stomp together and bringing most of the bulls. Tickets are $12 for adults and $6 for kids.
