Kloser’s new adventure Beaver Creek Director of Activities moves on to start company By Brian Alexander Mountaineer Staff Writer When four-time world champion Mike Kloser retired from adventure racing last fall, he gave one stipulation: If the right opportunity came along, he would jump on it. (Or off of it, as is often the case in adventure racing.) Since then Kloser has made another retirement decision, and this one isn’t

coming with any strings attached. Working for Vail Resorts for almost 32 years in some capacity, the Director of Activities is giving up his day-to-day work at Beaver Creek to pursue a line of adventure racing products he designed with his new company, Out There! The one thing about ending at Beaver Creek is leaving a support system that’s been there for years.

“The biggest thing has been the support I’ve had from my employers, whether it’s people like Tony O’Rouke to John Garnsey, for 30 years the support was there in one way shape or form,” Kloser said. Out There! will sell outdoor gear and adventure racing equipment, initially starting with backpacks, which Kloser has a wealth of experience in design-

ing. Unfortunately for him, though, up until this point that wealth of experience hasn’t translated into any actual wealth. Kloser has designed outdoor products for North Face and GoLite, as well as other companies. “We pretty much have a full line of adventure gear we helped design with Nike, and the last couple years, they [See KLOSER, page 5]

Another Gadhafi official defects

Another high-ranking Libyan official has defected and fled the country amid a widening NATO campaign of bombings as well as leafletting and other psychological warfare to persuade Moammar Gadhafi’s troops to stop fighting. Shukri Ghanem, the Libyan oil minister and head of the National Oil Co., crossed into neighboring Tunisia by road on Monday, according to a Tunisian security official and Abdel Moneim al-Houni, a former Libyan Arab League representative who was among the first wave of Libyan diplomats to defect.

Vail plans to test parking at Teva New plan calls for no frontage parking, express buses By Phil Lindeman Mountaineer Staff Writer When Teva Mountain Games comes to Vail in under three weeks, longtime attendees may be met with a slew of â&#x20AC;&#x153;No Parkingâ&#x20AC;? signs and security workers along the Interstate 70 frontage road, part of a new effort to make summertime parking look more like winter. With the early June event as a test subject, the Town of Vail plans to allow no road parking until both the Lionshead and Vail Village parking structures are full. According to projections by town officials, nearly 67 separate days â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from Teva to the Fourth of July â&#x20AC;&#x201C; have the potential to spill from dedicated spaces and into the street. The plan allows for only three days of parking on the frontage roads, down from 34 in 2010. To make this lofty goal, town staff proposed a number of solutions, including private security patrols and express bus routes between the structures and Ford Park. The town council weighed these options at last nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s town council meeting, and several council members proposed Teva as an ideal time to test the new approach Before the council called for public input, Mayor Dick Cleveland acknowledged to a crowd of nearly 30 people that frontage road parking now comes with a hefty price tag,

thanks in part to a new lease imposed by the Colorado Department of Transportation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important you all understand free parking is no longer free to the community,â&#x20AC;? Cleveland said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot of costs that have been forced on us.â&#x20AC;? This past ski season, Vail renewed the lease with the understanding a swath of road work needed to be done, particularly if the town wanted to purchase the land. Earlier in the afternoon, the council heard from CDOT representatives, who outlined the various improvements, including dedicated parking space and sidewalks near Ford Park. Located along the eastern edge of town and host to a number of summer activities, the park became a heated topic of conversation. Representatives from the Vail Valley Foundation, which runs the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival concert series as well as Teva Games, were uneasy about using events at the Ford Amphitheater as guinea pigs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We spend millions and millions of dollars attracting people to the amphitheater and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want their first experience there to be one of frustration or waiting for buses,â&#x20AC;? VVF President Ceil Folz said, noting that parking is a major complaint of concertgoers. Folz cited the price of many VVF events for her concerns â&#x20AC;&#x201C; single tickets for Bravo! top out at $85 â&#x20AC;&#x201C;

saying guests expect easy access for hefty upfront costs. Jeanne Reid White, the director development for the Bravo! festival, added to Folzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s argument, saying the VVF events and larger, more open ones such as Teva Games canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be judged on the same criteria. She compared day-long attractions to the ski season, where people arrive at will and spread across the entire town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Summer is a completely different animal than winter,â&#x20AC;? White said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every single day is different.â&#x20AC;? While most had different views about the exact look of a parking plan, nearly all agreed parking along the frontage road should be a thing of the past. Jim Lamont, Executive Director of the Vail Homeownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Association, praised the council for its work in the past two years to remedy an issue that bled from frontage roads to the contested â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and often aimless â&#x20AC;&#x201C; EverVail talks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a principle of the design for the entire Vail community, parking on the street is not a solution,â&#x20AC;? Lamont said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to send the message this is special, this is different â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Vail is not the same old place.â&#x20AC;? Over coming weeks, town staff will prepare a parking plan for Teva Games from June 2 to June 5. The council will use their report to set a concrete plan for the remainder of the summer.

Estimates Vail, Steadman take relationship forward Free Drywall Repair & Texturing NEWS

Partnership would include new medical complex in town By Phil Lindeman Mountaineer Staff Writer The Town of Vail and the Steadman Clinic took fledgling steps toward an official partnership yesterday, when the Vail Town Council voted unanimously to approve a formal study of what such a partnership would look like, set to be finished by the end of summer. At the heart of a tentative agreement is a new, 86,000 square-foot complex near the current town municipal building between Lionshead and Vail Village, according to an initial assessment by Triumph Development, a Maryland-based consultant firm. This building would be shared by the celebrated orthopedic clinic, as well as the Steadman Philippon Research Center, and certain departments of Vail Valley Medical

Center, where the clinic is currently housed. Also under consideration is new space for the town, although the specifics are a bit more hazy in the planning stage. The report doesn’t mention specific groups – say, police administration – but calls for 30,000 square feet of space for “offices and council chambers.” “I think this is an exciting opportunity to have a partnership between all the parties,” councilman Andy Daly said. “The Steadman Clinic provides a great deal to the economic vitality of our community. This is the best solution for all involved.” According to the report from Triumph Development, early plans show both the medical and town buildings could fit on the 2.5-acre municipal plot, along with any needed parking. The firm will spearhead

an in-depth study over the coming months, with a deadline for council approval set for early September. The town will split the estimated $100,000 bill evenly with the clinic and VVMC. Officials from the clinic, research institute, and VVMC first approached the town several weeks back about a partnership, touting “medical tourism” as a year-round incentive for Vail. During a presentation at the last town council meeting on May 3, Mike Egan, the president and CEO of the institute, reiterated a want to stay in the town, saying the clinic alone could pump $2 billion into the local economy over the next decade. In order to do so, Egan said, the clinic needed to expand and cited the importance of a conference

Graham Bultemeier, 1990-2011 Graham Bultemeier, who was born and raised in the Eagle Valley, died May 14 from head injuries sustained in a longboard accident in Los Alamos, N.M. He was 21. Described as an extremely giving person by family and friends, Graham had stepped beyond the usual driver’s license organ donor signup. When his parents, Becky and Pat Bultemeier reached the hospital in Santa Fe, where their son was airlifted following the accident, they discovered that Graham had listed specific wishes as an organ donor online some time ago. That action means that countless numbers of people will continue to benefit by his giving spirit and ultimate donation. “While we are overwhelmed with grief, we are so grateful for the love and support of our community that Graham so passionately embraced and embodied,” the Bultemeier family said in a statement. “Graham lived fully, although too briefly. Be open to all possibilities and accept your children for who they are. We are so thankful for and find peace in how we loved Graham so unconditionally.” Close friend Roseanna Bitetto described Graham as the kindest, most open-hearted person she’s ever known. “Everyone who knew him learned something from him,” she said. “He helped out wherever he could. He was so full of life. A big teddy bear.” While he was in college a crippled dog ended up on Graham’s

front porch in a rainstorm. Graham nursed the starving stray back to health and decided he had to keep her, as she wouldn’t survive long at the local shelter. His seventh grade science teacher, Michael Moser, described Graham as an innovative thinker who expressed such enthusiasm for his ideas. “He was one of those special students who made teaching a real joy,” Moser said. “I looked forward to each day he was in my class.” As a freshman in college, Graham learned the art of glassblowing after taking a class his freshman year. It became a passionate hobby, his mother said, as he enjoyed creating shapes that challenged his professors to define them mathematically. Born in Vail Feb. 17, 1990 Graham attended Edwards Elementary, Berry Creek Middle School and graduated from Battle Mountain

High School in 2008. He was a junior majoring in physics at New Mexico Tech in Socorro. As a young boy, Graham enjoyed the challenge and camaraderie of scouting, receiving his Arrow of Light as a Cub Scout. He was an avid mountain biker, spending several summers working with kids at mountain biking camps. He also worked as a bicycle technician and interned for LGM Models learning how to build architectural models. He especially enjoyed the technical aspect of that work, said his mother. He loved snowboarding, hiking, skateboarding and camping with his brother Hunter and his friends. He played guitar and drums in a garage band, “Mixed Messages,” he founded. They competed in the “Battle of the Bands” with other high school groups. Working beside his father, Graham assisted in the building of a cabin near Leadville where the family enjoys spending time together. He was always a powerful role model for his younger brother Hunter. “Hunter always knew how much Graham loved him, and speaks frequently about how much he learned from his older brother,” his mother said. A memorial service and celebration of life gathering is being planned for later in June. In lieu of flowers, donations in Graham’s memory may be made at any Wells Fargo Bank.

started phasing out their backpack line and we’ve needed something to race with that wasn’t just a pack off the shelf,” Kloser said. “I started designing a pack at that point in time.” His first shipment is schedule to arrive soon; he’s planning on having a booth set up at the Teva Games where he hopes to display and possibly sell the new products, or you can check them out at www. “It’s crazy how much time I’ve spent over the years helping other people build their lines out, yet I haven’t capitalized on the expertise or the experience I have in this field and did something for myself,” he said. Today is officially Kloser’s last time on the day-to day grind at Beaver Creek, although he will still be around for a few contracted events he’s been spearheading over the next couple months like the Blues, Brews, and Barbecue followed by the Tough Mudder – a new event in June coming to Beaver Creek that already has 7,000 people signed up for the event – wrapping up with his work on the Xterra event in midJuly. “After Xterra I will remove myself from event preparation unless they call me in for a special event or organization,” he said. Besides his new Out There! outdoor gear company, which is his first and main priority, Kloser will be working on some special events type stuff including a ranch in Wyoming where he’s been doing some trail and contract work over the past few years to work on a zip line and challenge course with Charlie Alexander from Zip Line Tours. From there he might be doing an event in Idaho called expedition Idaho, an event similar to that of Eco-Challenge or Primal Quest, where he’ll be a course director/consultant for the Coeur d’Alene venue. Lastly, for the busiest retiree I’ve ever talked too, Kloser may be assisting Highline Sports in consulting and operations with some new stuff they have in the works. Even though some of these projects are out of state, one thing is for sure, you’ll see Mike Kloser around the Valley for years, “I’m definitely looking at Vail as remaining to be my home. I love it here, it’s my home, I’ve been here for now over 30 years.” Originally from Iowa, a young fresh out of high school Kloser fell in love with Vail when him and his brother with some friends visited the mountains on a ski trip all those years ago. He hasn’t left since, except for one summer in his

early twenties when he left for Hollywood to pursue the “California Dream” where he worked at studios as a prop carpenter. Although all this work history is nice, Kloser is probably best known for his athletic accomplishments. Mike’s impressive adventure racing results include: Four Adventure Racing Championship Titles, including the 2007 Adventure Racing World Championships in Scotland, Three Eco-Challenge titles, five Primal Quest Championships and multiple National Championship Titles. He also excels in winter sports with titles in numerous events including 2007 & 2008 National Winter Triathlon Champion. Mike was named “Adventure Racer of the Year” by Competitor Magazine, “Male Athlete of the Year” by Adventure Sport Magazine and he has two “Adventure Racing Team of the Year” titles. Mike has earned the coveted “Everest Award” one of the greatest achievements in climate sports. Earlier in his athletic career Mike was a top competitor in professional mogul skiing, winning numerous events. He was also the founder and director of the World Professional Mogul Tour. Mike had an incredible mountain biking career before adventure racing. He accumulated many outstanding accomplishments throughout his 12-year run including a World Mountain Bike Championship title, World downhill silver medalist, two time World Cup Overall silver medalist. His peers chose Mike to sit on the International Cycling Union’s board (UCI) as the athletes’ representative. Mike was recognized as one of the top mountain bikers of the 20th Century by Velo News and was inducted into the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame. Kloser has been married for more than 20 years now to his wife Emily,

who has been there to support him each step of the way. They have two children, Heidi and Christian who have developed into quite the athletes themselves. The whole family has a passion for the outdoors and a inherent quest for adventure and travel. While most will think the children get their athletic drive from him, Kloser doesn’t think so. “A lot of people ask where the kids get their competitive drive in their athletic skills and a lot of times they just think it comes from dad,” he said. “Honestly, probably the most competitive person in our family is my wife Emily and people who know would probably attest to that as well. Many people don’t really realize that she’s got a pretty good competitive background, not extensive but impressive nonetheless.” While it’s nice to be recognized as a great athlete, Kloser finds more fulfillment when people refer to him as Heidi Kloser’s dad, and with all his amazing athletic accomplishments Kloser says the most rewarding and satisfying accomplishment has been raising two wonderful kids and watching them pursue their dreams. With the help and support from his wife, Emily, Kloser’s been able to succeed athletically and personally and without that support this all might not have been possible. “Most importantly my wife, the support she’s given me and sacrifices she’s made for me, believe me it’s been a lot,” he said. “I think we take for granted the support we have from significant others, until you look back in time it’s easy to take for granted, and then when you finally settle in and realize the sacrifices they’ve made for you doing what you do at that moment, you need to appreciate them being there for us all those times.”

It’s especially significant this year because it will be the last event held at Meadow Mountain Elementary in EagleVail, which is set to be demolished

directly following the final school day on June 8th. Meadow Mountain Elementary students will join Minturn Middle school students (and a new Pre-K program) at the Homestake Peak School of Expeditionary Learning (HPSEL) in the fall, with all grades housed in the former Battle Mountain High School in Eagle-Vail. “We encourage anyone in the community who would like to celebrate the accomplishments of Meadow Mountain and Minturn Middle schools and learn more about the new Homestake Peak school to attend the EL Expo,” said Assistant Principal Dr. Eric Olsen. “In addition to the wide range of fun family

activities we typically present at EL Expo, we’ll also have information and personnel available to answer questions about forthcoming programs at Homestake Peak.” A highlight of the new Homestake Peak School will be the wide range of programs offered, including several new after school options presented in partnership with organizations like the Youth Foundation, Celebrate the Beat and the Vail Recreation District.

THE UPDATE White House negotiate a deal later this year to increase the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to borrow. Republicans and some Democrats opposed the tax increase, saying it would hurt domestic drilling while doing nothing to reduce gas prices. The vote was 52-48 in favor of the measure, short of the 60 votes needed to advance it.

IMF chief under suicide watch

IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn was placed under a suicide watch in jail while pressure mounted on him to resign yesterday and the hotel maid who accused him of attempted rape said through her lawyer that she had no idea who he was when she reported him to the police. Law enforcement officials emphasized that Strauss-Kahn had not tried to harm himself but that guards were keeping a close watch on him just in case. Meanwhile, details began to emerge about his accuser, a 32-year-old immigrant from the West African nation of Guinea with a 15-year-old daughter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is no way in which there is any aspect of this event which could be construed consensual in any manner. This is nothing other than a physical, sexual assault by this man on this young woman,â&#x20AC;? her attorney, Jeffrey Shapiro, told The Associated Press. He added: â&#x20AC;&#x153;She did not know who this man was until a day or two after this took place.â&#x20AC;?

Giffords set to undergo skull surgery

Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords will undergo surgery today to replace a piece of her skull removed by


doctors after she was shot in January. The surgery was confirmed to The Associated Press by a person familiar with Giffordsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; care. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the information has not officially been released. Giffords had a piece of her skull removed shortly after the shooting to allow room for brain swelling, and has been wearing a helmet adorned with an Arizona state flag. Doctors said earlier this year they expected to reattach the skull in May. The surgery comes just days after Giffords returned from Florida where she watched her astronaut husband rocket into space. Mark Kelly is Endeavourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commander.

Man eats 25,000th Big Mac

Don Gorske was honored after reaching the meaty milestone during a ceremony at a McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in his hometown of Fond du Lac, Wis. Surely McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most loyal customer, Guinness World Records recognized Gorskeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feat three years and 2,000 Big Macs ago, and the 59-year-old says he has no desire to stop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I plan on eating Big Macs until I die,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have no intentions of changing. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still my favorite food. Nothing has changed in 39 years. I look forward to it every day.â&#x20AC;?

Frat brats eat crow

A prestigious Yale fraternity is being banned from recruiting and holding activities on campus for five years after pledges were ordered to chant obscenities against women. Yale says it has also disciplined several Delta Kappa Epsilon members and asked the fraternityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national office to suspend the chapter for five years. The fraternity, which was founded at Yale in 1855, came under fire in October after pledges marched through campus and chanted phrases about sex acts including necrophilia. Chapter leaders later apologized, and the fraternityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national office in Ann Arbor, Mich., ordered them to stop all pledge activities.

Feds plan to combat bat-killing fungus

The Interior Department launched a national plan yesterday to combat a mysterious disease that has killed more than a million bats in the eastern and southern United States and is spreading west. The disease, called white-nose syndrome, is caused by a fungus. The disease has spread to 16 states, from New Hampshire to Tennessee, and three Canadian provinces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;White-nose syndrome threatens farreaching ecological and economic impacts,â&#x20AC;? Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned a lot in the past few years about the disease, but there is much more work to be done to contain it.â&#x20AC;? Caves on federal lands as far west as Colorado and Wyoming have been closed to the public to try to stem spread of the fungus, but scientists donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how the disease is transmitted or even

how it is killing the bats.

Obama seeks Mideast imprint

President Barack Obama is confronting the wrenching change in the Middle East in a burst of diplomacy, hoping to save a crumbling peace process and addressing the Arab revolt country-by-country in a world now free of the menace of Osama bin Laden. Opening a week-long focus on the Mideast, Obama yesterday urged Israelis and Palestinians back to the bargaining table against growing odds. His broader narrative will be delivered in a speech tomorrow, when he will make his pitch that a region long defined by division now has its moment of opportunity because its people are rising up and risking their lives for change.

Fossil dig in Snowmass ready to start

Crews are getting ready to start a second round of excavations at a site in Snowmass Village that’s turned out to be a treasure trove of Ice Age fossils. Scientists from the Denver Museum of Nature and Science planed to speak yesterday about the latest developments in their work. Digging began in the fall but then stopped when the snow began to fall. A team of 15 local volunteers, most of them teachers, will work side-by-side with the scientists at the site at the Ziegler Reservoir this summer looking for more fossils. The discoveries so far include

Trains more vulnerable than planes

Amtrak President Joseph Boardman says he wants to step up security patrols of the passenger rail network and explore new technologies able to provide advance warning of track tampering following revelations that al Qaida considered at-

tacking U.S. trains. Boardman told a Senate panel yesterday that the agency has expanded its use of explosive-sniffing dogs and is in close contact with U.S. and international security agencies. He said promising ultrasonic and laser technologies may enable detection of track problems far ahead of trains. But he cautioned that trains are more vulnerable to attack than planes because terrorists have more ability to access trains and track. He said more patrols of tracks are needed to identify specific points of vulnerability.

Rockies move back into first

The Colorado Rockies turned to their Big Os -- Ubaldo, CarGo and Tulo -- to snap out of their funk and send a message to the San Francisco Giants that they’re not going to fade away. Carlos Gonzalez’s two-run single off Javier Lopez capped a four-run eighth-inning rally and the Rockies surged back into first place in the NL West with a 5-3 win yesterday over the Giants. With the two-game sweep, the Rockies, who also got a solo homer from Troy Tulowitzki, moved a half game ahead of San Francisco in the division, and they snapped a streak of nine straight losses in games started by ace Ubaldo Jimenez. Although he’s still searching for his first win since Sept. 17, Jimenez showed signs of his old self, giving up three runs and eight hits in seven innings, striking out seven and walking just one. “It felt really good to have a game like that,” Jimenez said. “The last five games that I had have been really bad and today I was able to locate the fastball.” Jimenez said the outing gave him confidence that he’s getting back to being his old dominant self. Through seven innings it appeared as though the Giants were going to get their sixth win in eight tries against the Rockies and leave town with a 1½-game lead over their rivals. “It’s nice to walk out of here being in first place,” Tulowitzki said. “They have been beating us up the whole year, so it’s nice to kind of answer back, throw a few punches and prove to them that we’re going to be in this thing for the long haul.” Gonzalez, whose three-run homer off Tim Lincecum propelled Colorado past the Giants 7-4 on Monday night, grounded a fastball to right field to snap a 3-3 tie in the eighth and make a winner of Matt Belisle (4-2),

Cavs win draft lottery, will draft No. 1

The Cleveland Cavaliers got a huge jump on their post-LeBron James rebuilding process last night, winning the lottery and the No. 1 selection in next month’s NBA draft. Turning a pick they acquired from the Los Angeles Clippers into the No. 1 selection, the Cavs will pick first for the first time since 2003, when they drafted

James out of high school. He left for Miami last summer and the Cavs tumbled to the second-worst record in the league, but they will have two top-four picks next month as they try to back owner Dan Gilbert’s boast that they would win a title before James. They already had their own pick and acquired another at the trade deadline from the Clippers in the deal for Baron Davis. Gilbert sent his son and “hero”, 14-year-old Nick Gilbert, to the podium and the kid came up with a stunning victory, as the Clippers’ pick, originally No. 8, had only a 2.8 percent chance of landing at the top. Nick Gilbert was born with Neurofibromatosis (NF), a nerve disorder that causes tumors to grow anywhere in the body at any time. He was wearing black-rimmed glasses and a bow tie and looked serious until he showed a keen sense of humor in a television interview. His father called him his “hero” for the way he has fought the disease. “It’s sort of Nick fashion. He has been doing it his whole life to some degree. I’m proud of him. I proud of the way he carried himself and I am very excited for the fans of Cleveland, Ohio who have been through a very, very rough year,” Dan Gilbert said. “They deserve it more than anybody and they have some good hope now.” Minnesota will select second and Utah turned New Jersey’s pick from the Deron Williams trade into the No. 3 selection. The Timberwolves continued their unbelievable lottery losing streak, falling to 0 for 14 and dropping for the eighth time. They had a 25 percent chance of winning after finishing with a league-worst 17-65 record.

NFL talks ends without agreement

The NFL and its locked-out players wrapped up an-

SPORTS other round of court-ordered mediation yesterday without any signs of a new agreement and the clock ticking on the 2011 season. Officials and attorneys for both sides said they will return for more closed-door talks with U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan on June 7, four days after a key appeals court hearing in St. Louis on the legality of the lockout. NFL lead negotiator Jeff Pash and Hall of Famer Carl Eller both said the talks went well, but there was no indication of any significant progress toward a new collective bargaining agreement. Pash said he thought Boylan had done a good job of â&#x20AC;&#x153;pushing the parties,â&#x20AC;? but he said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe the dispute over the future of the $9 billion business will be settled in court. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only way weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to solve this is by sitting down together,â&#x20AC;? Pash said, echoing the NFLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preference for traditional negotiations in a collective bargaining setting and adding: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We owe it to our game. We owe it to our fans. We owe it to each other, to the players and to the clubs, to sit down and negotiate.â&#x20AC;? The two sides met for 16 days before talks fell apart March 11 and the lockout began. Boylan, who presided over four days of mediation last month and two more days this week, also had lunch with DeMaurice Smith, executive director of the NFL Players Association, and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Pash was coy when asked about the significance of that separate meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t invited. Us staff guys, you know, we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rate for the big power lunch, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re eager to hear about it ourselves,â&#x20AC;? Pash said. The two sides are not scheduled to meet again until June, just a month before training camps typically begin and just eight weeks before the first preseason game on Aug. 8.

Hall of Famer Killebrew, 74, dies of cancer

Harmon Killebrew earned every bit of his frightening nickname, hitting tape-measure home runs that awed even his fellow Hall of Famers. Yet there was a softer side to â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Killer,â&#x20AC;? too. The balding gentleman who enjoyed a milkshake after each game. The fisherman who was afraid of bumping into alligators. The MVP who always had time to help a rookie.

Killebrew, the big-swinging slugger for the Minnesota Twins and the face of the franchise for so many years, died Tuesday at age 74 after battling esophageal cancer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sad day. We lost an icon. We lost Paul Bunyan,â&#x20AC;? former Twins star Kent Hrbek said. The team said Killebrew died peacefully at his home in Scottsdale, Ariz., with his wife, Nita, and their family at his side. He announced his diagnosis just six months ago, and last week Killebrew said he was settling in for the final days of his life with hospice care after doctors deemed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;awful diseaseâ&#x20AC;? incurable. At Target Field, the scoreboard showed a picture of a smiling Killebrew and his retired No. 3 was etched in the dirt behind second base. Plus, there was a more personal tribute â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Twinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ground crew slowly lifted home plate and put under it a plastic-encased, blackand-white photo of Killebrew. The picture, believed to be from the 1960s, will stay beneath the plate the rest of the season. It shows, naturally, the compact Killebrew poised to go deep.

Air Force coach to enter Hall of Fame

The latest class of College Football Hall of Famers is loaded on the defensive line. Defensive tackles Marty Lyons of Alabama, Russell Maryland of Miami, Doug English of Texas and Rob Waldrop of Arizona were among the 14 players chosen for induction. Also headed for the Hall are Deion Sanders, who turned cornerback into a glamour position at Florida State from 1985-88, and former Michigan coach Lloyd Carr, who won 75 percent of his games and the 1997 national championship in 13 seasons leading the Wolverines. The rest of the players in the class revealed yesterday were: Florida receiver Carlos Alvarez, Oregon State fullback Bill Enyart, Georgia defensive back Jake Scott, Nebraska guard Will Shields, Minnesota quarterback Sandy Stephens, West Virginia linebacker Darryl Talley, Oklahoma halfback Clendon Thomas and Michigan State receiver Gene Washington. Fisher DeBerry, who led Air Force to a winning record in 17 of his 23 seasons as Falcons coach, will also be inducted in December.

jor changes to the staff, menu, or atmosphere, Molina said, but it doesn’t mean everything will stay the same at the Gore Range Brewery. Workers have already started scraping grout from the floors and walls, he said, and have moved the restaurant’s smoker to a location where it will no longer fill the dining room with its aroma. In the next month, workers should redesign the outdoor patio. New trees, which would block the dumpster and part of the road from view, are due to be planted today. Changes are also planned for the indoor portion. Molina said he hopes to extend the bar area and move two booths to provide a buffer between it and the dining area.

New flavors The restaurant is now under the management of Pascal Coudoy, who spent the last 11 years with the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek. Originally from France, Coudoy made the move to the United States when he was chosen to manage a Manhattan restaurant at the age of 25. He said yesterday that he doesn’t plan to take Gore Range into the world of the gourmet, but he has already made subtle changes to the menu. The restaurant had its first daily special in recent memory yesterday, for example – salmon with spinach and mushrooms. By brining his sensitivities to the kitchen, Coudoy said he is confident he can improve the quality of the menu without changing the atmosphere or the price. “There’s nothing wrong with a hamburger as long as the hamburger is good,” he said. “I want the place to be


fun, I want the food to be fun. I don’t want it to be pretentious.” Coudoy doesn’t just want new tastes on the plates at Gore Range, he also wants them on tap. The brewery has served the same six beers for more than a decade now, and Coudoy said he hopes to see some new varieties, including some seasonal beers. Those changes won’t be happening for a few months. The brewery’s new ownership needs to obtain a new liquor license, which will force a halt to brewing for as long as 90 days. Coudoy said the brewery has enough beer stored in kegs to last through the dry spell. Whenever the brews do change, the brewer isn’t likely to. Coudoy said the restaurant’s Head Brewer Jeremy Pluck isn’t going anywhere. Local owners Coudoy was chosen to head the restaurant by Molina, a Texas entrepreneur who said he had know Coudoy for years and knew he was a good fit for the business. “He’s an artist,” Molina said of Coudoy. “And he’s a professional. He’s the kind of guy who will get the job done.” Molina’s family own three Mexican restaurants in Houston, but this is his first foray into the food industry. He also owns a rubber manufacturing company near Houston that employs almost 300 people. Molina bought the restaurant yesterday in partnership with Juan Carlos Aziz. Both live in the Vail Valley with their families.


center, which the council shot down in 2005. At last night’s meeting, council woman Margaret Rogers brought up the conference center funds – the $9.4 million collected through taxes when a center was still on the table – asking if the clinic or VVMC had any interest in using the funds.

[From page 1]
