2015 FISrace now in Vail approves Golden Peak By Matt Minich Mountaineer Editor

Vail will not be snubbed in 2015. Officials with the Vail Valley Foundation, which has been the main local organizer for the 2015 International Ski Federation (FIS) Alpine World Ski Championships, announced that Golden Peak will host the competition’s “Nation’s Team” event, as well as some of the qualifying races. The announcement came after an analysis of the hill by FIS officials yesterday,

for National Team event

who had to make sure the hill was the proper length, width, and grade for the event. “Golden Peak will be a great venue for the Nations Team event during the 2015 Alpine World Ski Championships,” FIS professional Guenter Hujara said in the announcement. “The spectators will be



able to see the entire course from the finish, and it will be a fantastic promotion of the sport.” For months, VVF officials have told town officials and members of the public alike that organizing races in Vail would not be possible. Terrain at Beaver Creek is more suited for world championship

Soldier guilty of squad deaths in Ga. court martial

By Matt Minich Mountaineer Editor

An Army sergeant was found guilty on yesterday of two counts of premeditated murder in the 2008 slayings of his squad leader and another U.S. soldier at a patrol base in Iraq, but he was spared the death penalty when the military jury didn’t return a unanimous verdict. Sgt. Joseph Bozicevich, 41, of Minneapolis now faces a sentence of life in prison, either with or without the possibility of parole. The death penalty is an option in a court martial only when there’s a unanimous guilty verdict for premeditated murder. The 12-member jury at Fort Stewart did not report exactly how it was split when it announced its verdict.

races, they said, and the costs of bringing Vail’s terrain up to the current standards and installing the media infrastructure needed to broadcast from both mountains would add as much as $7 million to the championship’s overall price tag. This generated controversy in local newspapers and town meetings for much of the ski season. Prominent locals voiced fears that an absence of races would tarnish Vail’s brand as a premiere destination for American ski racing.

Members of the Club at Cordillera received an email yesterday explaining that the club’s financial turmoil will force the closure of two of its golf courses for the season. This news came just one day after the owners of the club filed a $96.5 million lawsuit against several entities and people, including the Cordillera Property Owners Association (CPOA) and the Cordillera Transition Corporation (CTC). In the suit, club owner David Wilhelm claims the various entities have conspired to drive the club into bankruptcy to by the land it owns for pennies on the dollar. If true, it would be a violation of the Colorado Organized Crime Control Act. In the email, Wilhelm said bankruptcy would have “a ‘scorched earth’ event from which the Cordillera brand, the Club, and the community might never recover.” In his lawsuit, Wilhelm claims that property owners have conspired to leave the club or refuse to pay dues in an attempt to drive it our of business. To preserve cash flow and avoid bankruptcy, the club will not open its Summit and Mountain golf courses, the email reads. “We realize that this is particularly unfair and burdensome to our loyal Members who have paid dues in [See CORDILLERA, page 16]

Schools retool curriculum New standards will set the bar higher By Matt Minich Mountaineer Editor

Tomorrow, teachers with Eagle County Schools will be presented with a new, more rigorous set of standards for their students. For students in the district, that means school is about to more difficult ECS Executive Director of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment , Heather Eberts said in an interview yesterday. The district has failed to meet the annual improvements mandated by the 2001 No Child Left Behind Act. Independent auditors and district officials agree the major problem is a lack of academic rigor in the district’s curriculum. Teaching a curriculum that’s too easy doesn’t just cause problems for the district, Eberts said, it makes it more difficult for children to succeed after their high school graduation. “College and the workforce are rigorous,” she said. ““We’ve got to be mirroring that in our school system, otherwise kids will not be prepared when they get into the world.” The district will also work to

improve communications between schools at different levels. Under the current system, lessons do not always build on what was in previous years. A student may learn a lesson in fifth grade, for example, then learn the same lesson again after graduating to a middle school. “Personally, the most valuable part of the curriculum redesign has been the opportunity to collaborate with other teachers in the district as we work to adapt our curriculum to the new state standards and ensure high academic standards,” Battle Mountain High School Natural Science Teacher Carol Wellbaum said in a statement about the change. Statewide changes As of tomorrow, all teachers will have a comprehensive list of the standards required for students in all academic disciplines, allowing teachers to coordinate their programs across grade levels. The curriculum standards will give teachers freedom to choose the lesson plans and materials used in their classrooms. Instead, they will describe the skill and knowledge students will be expected to have after graduat-

ing each grade. The new standards will be similar to those set down by the state of Colorado, which recently approved new standards for standardized tests. Colorado has agreed to the “Common Core” curriculum, which sets a minimum educational standard for all but nine states, and recently mandated a state standard above that. The state and district don’t just hope to change the lessons that are taught to students, but the system by which they’re measured. In Colorado, proficiency in all subjects and grades 3-10 is tested by the Colorado Student Assessment Program, commonly known as the CSAP tests. State officials are planning some changes to the CSAP for next year, and many of the changes that will be seen in Eagle County schools are being planned in anticipation of them. The new CSAP will focus less on rote memorization of facts, Eberts said, and more on the ability of students to analyze information and draw conclusions from it. All of the new standards will be applied to the 2011-12 school year.

CORRECTION - The caption for a photo printed on page 7 of yesterday’s Mountaineer incorrectly stated that the WECMRD Phoenix gymnastics team took fourth place in their meet last weekend. The team actually took first place in the meet. The Mountaineer regrets this error.

Independence Pass opens today Independence Pass will open on schedule today at 2 p.m. despite heavy late-season snows. “We owe a big thanks to these crew members—some who’ve put in 14-hour days, seven days a week to get this pass open for Memorial Day holiday travel,” CDOT Deputy Maintenance Superintendent John David said in a statement announcing the opening. “We also need to thank our Craig Maintenance Section, who loaned us their snowcat from Rabbit Ears Pass; with this amount of snow, we couldn’t have met our goal without it.” Crews dug the road out from under snow that was as deep as 8 feet in places, and reached 25 feet along the sides. According to data from the Colorado Avalanche Information Center, snows on the east side of the pass are now 361 percent of average on the west side of the pass, and 452 percent of average on the east. Though the pass is open, motorists are encouraged to prepare for winter conditions. “This has been a big winter up here—and with the snowmelt, it’s not over,” CDOT Glenwood Springs Maintenance Area Supervisor D’Wayne Gaymon said in the announcement. “With banks of up to 30 feet high, we’re going to have to keep at it—and motorists need to drive slowly and stay prepared for winter conditions.”

Butterflies take flight in Vail Third graders release animals they cared for through life About 500 third graders ran around the Betty Ford Botanical Gardens in Vail yesterday as they watched a months worth of work flutter away. The third graders, representing 10 local schools and 25 classrooms in the valley, have spent the past month caring for and learning about butterflies as they transformed from caterpillars. The project reached its pinnacle yesterday when they set the animals free. “It went really well,” said Nicola Ripley, director of horticulture for the gardens. “The event gets bigger every year. This is the best year for butterflies we’ve had.” The event began around 1997 with only a few years missed in between, Ripley said. “This is the most [butterflies] we’ve had, and they are also fully developed and active,” said Stephen Wood, spokesman for the gardens. After the release, which took place just after 12 p.m., the kids spent the afternoon chasing after the butterflies, conscious of course not to step on the few that had nestled in the grass. “It was kind of pretty cool,” said Jimmy Fessenden, a third grader at Brush Creek Elementary. “It’s cool to see the butterflies get set free and go everywhere.” Standing next to Fessenden was his friend and fellow butterfly keeper, Quin Kapsher who explained the

process. “Everyday we’d look at the caterpillars and feed them and pick them up with the net. Then when they turned into butterflies we’d feed them nectar and watch them fly around the cage.” Kapsher and Fessenden agreed the release was the best part of the project. While the kids were having fun raising the butterflies and then setting them free, they were tricked by the smarts of the third grade teachers who used the excitement of the project to cloak the educational aspects.

Throughout the project, the kids learned about life cycles and of the processes of butterflies. They learned words like metamorphosis and responsibility of taking care of a life form. “They were so excited from the start, but I was surprised how much they didn’t know when the project began,” said Karen Wood, a teacher at Red Hill in Gypsum. “But now they know everything about the process like how caterpillars eat food but butterflies eat nectar. The kids did a great job.” [See BUTTERFLIES, page 4]

By Brian Alexander Mountaineer Staff Writer The undisputed king of the Eagle Ranch Classic was at it again last night. The Vail Recreation District kicked off its summer season of mountain bike racing with the Riverfront Club at the Westin Mountain Bike Race Series Eagle Ranch Classic. And for the fourth straight year, Jay Henry rode away with the victory. The Eagle Ranch Classic took racers ages 8 and older through the jeep roads and single track surrounding the 4th of July trailhead in Eagle Ranch with distances ranging from 3.5 miles for youth racers to 12 miles for the pro and expert racers. This was the first race of the seven race series, which is presented by East West Resorts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I moved back down to Eagle a couple years ago, so I ride this

all winter long after hanging out all summer, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to catch up.â&#x20AC;? He sees the races as a fun social gathering that happen to have really good training races to get him ready for his other events throughout the summer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be lying if I say I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to win though,â&#x20AC;? Henry said. Next up for the race series is the Hammer in the Hay at 4 Eagle Ranch in Wolcott June 8, followed by the Berry Creek Bash in Edwards June 15, Davos Dash in West Vail July 6, Vail Grind on Vail Mountain July 20, Boneyard Brawl in Eagle Aug. 3, and finishing up with the Beaver Creek Blast in Beaver Creek Aug. 17.

the case said yesterday. An indictment could come within days unless the 2004 Democratic vice-presidential nominee reaches an agreement with prosecutors to plead guilty to a negotiated charge, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the case’s sensitivity. It was not immediately clear what charges prosecutors planned to bring. Federal authorities have been investigating the former North Carolina senator’s campaign finances, focusing heavily on money from wealthy supporters that allegedly went to keep mistress Rielle Hunter and her out-of-wedlock baby in hiding in 2007 and 2008 to protect Edwards’ White House campaign from a career-ending scandal.

Former street preacher gets life in Smart case

Elizabeth Smart finally got her chance yesterday to confront the street preacher convicted of holding her captive and raping her for months when she was just 14. Now 23, she stood tall in the courtroom — stoic, with an even voice and a strength Brian David Mitchell clearly lacked. Mitchell, frail and skinny with a long, peppery white beard, sang hymns softly and closed his hollow eyes, just as he did throughout his trial, just as he would moments later as the judge gave him two life sentences without parole. That did not stop Smart from looking right at him and coolly speaking her piece. It took her about 30 seconds. “I don’t have very much to say to you. I know exactly what you did,” said Smart, wearing a houndstooth checked skirt, an ivory jacket and pearls. “I know that you know that what you did was wrong. You did it with full knowledge ... but I have a wonderful life now and no matter what you do, you will never affect me again.” Mitchell’s sentencing closed a major legal chapter in the heart-

chase health insurance rather than have the government directly pay hospital and doctor bills. Democrats said the GOP plan would “end Medicare as we know it,” and they made it the central issue in a special election Tuesday in which Democrats seized a longtime GOP district in western New York, rattling Republicans.

Senate OKs extension of Patriot Act

breaking ordeal that stalled for years after he was declared mentally ill and unfit to stand trial in state court. A federal jury in December unanimously convicted the 57-year-old of kidnapping and unlawful transportation of a minor across state lines for sex.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says he has struck the first of several agreements needed to pass a four-year Patriot Act extension before three provisions expire at midnight tonight. The agreement to hold a test vote Thursday morning is the first progress all week in a standoff between Senate leaders and Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, who opposes the Patriot Act. Paul has stalled the renewal, saying he wanted Reid to make good on a promise to allow debate on amendments. Reid said there was no time for that. Congress is under unusual pressure to quickly extend the law, designed to help the government find terrorists on American soil. Once passed by the House and Senate, the extension must be flown to Europe for President Barack Obama’s signature.

Joined by several moderate Republicans, Democrats controlling the Senate rejected a controversial House budget plan for turning Medicare into a voucher-like program for future beneficiaries. Five Republicans joined every Democrat in the 57-40 vote killing the measure, which calls for transforming Medicare into a program in which future beneficiaries — people now 54 years old and younger — would be given a subsidy to pur-

The man accused of wounding Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in a deadly rampage lowered his head to within inches of the courtroom table yesterday. When he lifted it, he began yelling, angry and loud.

Why should you buy Custom Metal Work? Reason #2 to Go Custom:

You’re not an “average consumer”, you’re an individual one. When an item is manufactured for the masses, the company’s marketing department decides which features to include according to their profile of a “typical consumer.” Alternatively, custom made items are made specifically for you.

Burns ordered Loughner to a federal facility in Missouri for up to four months, where doctors will try to give him enough treatment to bring him to a point where he understands the case against him. “You don’t have to be a psychiatrist to know that the boy is disturbed,” said Eric Fuller, who was shot in the knee and the back during the Jan. 8 shooting spree at a Giffords event outside a Tucson, Ariz., supermarket.

Former IMF chief moves to new housing in NYC

Former International Monetary Fund leader Dominique StraussKahn moved yesterday from a temporary space in a high-rise to a plush, four-bedroom brick town house in Manhattan where he will remain under house arrest as he awaits trial on charges he tried to rape a hotel maid, officials said. The one-time French presidential contender was seen smiling as he got into a gray sport utility vehicle under tight security. He was moved

about a mile away to the stately red brick town home in Tribeca, according a person familiar with his housing arrangements. The person was not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. The building, which has five bathrooms, is located on a cobblestone street in one of Manhattan’s most posh neighborhoods. It also is close to the courthouse where he will attend hearings.

Thousands evacuate as typhoon skirts Philippines

Thousands of people along the eastern Philippine coastline were moving to temporary shelters late yesterday as a powerful typhoon packing strong winds and plenty of rain roared toward the country’s northeast. Typhoon Songda was not expected to make landfall but will skirt along shores with winds of up to 93 miles (150 kilometers) per hour and rainfall of 1.2 inches (30 millimeters), the government weather bureau said. “It has a big radius, so it can af-

Another hoops star will join the Kardashian clan. People magazine reported Wednesday that reality star Kim Kardashian is engaged to her boyfriend of six months, New Jersey Nets forward Kris Humphries. Sister Khloe Kardashian and Los Angeles Laker Lamar Odom were married in 2009. Kim Kardashian told People that she was in “shock” when she entered her Beverly Hills, Calif., home last week to discover Humphries on bended knee with “will you marry me” spelled out in rose petals. Humphries, 26, gave Kardashian, 30, a 20.5-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring.

‘Idol” crowns winner

Scotty McCreery won the “American Idol” battle of the fresh-faced country crooners yesterday, pulling more of a record 122 million-plus viewer votes than competitor Lauren Alaina. “I never in my wildest dreams,” said McCreery, a 17-year-old with a strikingly deep, old-soul voice that contrasts with his youth. “I’ve got to thank the Lord first ... he got me here.” McCreery of Garner, N.C., and Alaina, 16, of Rossville, Ga., represent the first all-country finale and the youngest duo ever to compete on “Idol,” which is in its 10th season. The exuberant, big-voiced Alaina performed on Tuesday’s final singoff despite a vocal cord injury that needed medical treatment. But the consistently popular McCreery, who’d never been at risk of elimination, claimed the title and a record contract.

By Phil Lindeman Mountaineer Staff Writer This weekend marks the first ever -- and, if all goes well, first annual -- Hammer Mash, the brainchild of two mountain biking enthusiasts from Eagle. Thrown together in just eight weeks, the two-day event brings together nearly 30 cycleminded sponsors, including a slew of local breweries and bike shops, with the singular goal of promoting trail riding in Eagle. Activities include tune-up tips by Mountain Pedaler owner Charlie Brown, a beer garden each day at 3 p.m., and music from local group Triple Black at 6 p.m on Saturday. Most events are free to the public, with food and libations costing extra.

The event founders, Bart Gunderson and Ralph Ciarlanti, targeted visitors from the Front Range and surrounding states to get a leg up on neighboring mountain bike hot spots like Fruita and Moab. “Memorial Day weekend is perfect, particularly for these types of groups,” said Gunderson, who is expecting several hundred people to attend. “It’s an incredible year for alternative recreation close to home. It’s been long overdue to attract people to the Eagle trails.” Although only several organized races are scheduled -- including the chance to race against prop cyclists on an undisclosed course -- Gunderson said one major draw will be a sort of distance challenge,

where cyclists will record their total miles biked during the weekend on a GPS or smartphone, and return the results at the end. The cyclists with the most overall miles will win prizes, ranging from T-shirts to a Garmin GPS. The majority of activities will be staged from the parking lot of the Eagle Lodge and Suites, operated by Ciarlanti, an avid biker who recently got back on the trails after a hip injury left him unable to ride for five years. “We like to have the leverage of kicking off summer sooner than other communities,” Ciarlanti said. “It’s an event we would like to continue in the future and something we want to grow.”

Pink Colorado sees nearly 400 photo entries

850 Chambers Ave. #5, Eagle 970.309.4299

Winning images to be shown around Eagle starting June 23 By Phil Lindeman Mountaineer Staff Writer Nearly 400 photographs and countless shades of pink later, the organizers of the inaugural Pink Colorado contest have whittled the pool down to 26 winners. Breast cancer awareness has never looked so stunningly beautiful. Beginning in late March, organizers spent a month gathering photos, each with the stipulation that they be taken in Colorado and include some element of pink to reflect the now-iconic hue of breast cancer awareness. Aspiring photographers from every corner of the state captured images of people, landscapes, bicycles, sunsets, and ski slopes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was anything and everything you can imagine,â&#x20AC;? said Michelle Friedman, an account executive with NRC Broadcasting, a major sponsor of the contest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We loved so many of them we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to leave any out.â&#x20AC;? Along with NRC, the contest is largely supported by Eagle, and is a continuation of other awareness events centered in the town over the past year, such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Boots on Broadwayâ&#x20AC;? held each August. Pictures were judged by a panel of respected local and national figures, from renowned nature photographer John Fielder to Warren Miller film star Chris Anthony. As a reward for making the cut, each of the 26 photos will be enlarged to billboard-sized prints and displayed on buildings along a pedestrian-friendly path from Broad-

way Street to Eagle Ranch. The official viewing party is on June 23 beginning at 6:30 p.m. Friedman said surrounding businesses are invited to deck their doorways and windows in pink for the unveiling, and the most eyecatching business will win a $2,500 advertising campaign from NRC. The prints will remain on display until Sept. 16, but even as they are removed from buildings and walls,

their purpose is far from fulfilled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once they are taken down, the billboards will be refurbished into backpacks, dog leashes, and other decorations,â&#x20AC;? Friedman said, noting the winners will also be featured in an 18-month calendar to be sold across the state. All proceeds from sales will go to awareness funds, including Komen Aspen and the Colorado Cancer Research Hospital.

Colorado Rockies’ Seth Smith, left, is tagged out at second by Arizona Diamondbacks second baseman Kelly Johnson, right, after overrunning second during the first inning of an MLB baseball game yesterday in Denver. The Rockies lost 2-1. AP photo.

Rockies continue slide against Arizona

Ian Kennedy tossed eight crisp innings, center fielder Chris Young robbed Ty Wigginton of a game-tying homer and the surging Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Colorado Rockies 2-1 last night. Young drove in the go-ahead run with a bloop single in the sixth inning, then made his key grab in the eighth. The Diamondbacks have won eight of their last nine to move over .500 for just the second time this season. Kennedy (6-1) held down the Rockies all night, allowing just seven hits. The lone run he surrendered came on a sacrifice fly by Todd Helton in the fourth. The crafty righty is having quite the month on the mound, going 3-0 with a 2.02 ERA in May. Kennedy was helped out by Young’s sensational catch in dead center. Young drifted back on Wigginton’s drive and timed his leap to perfection, reaching over the wall and bringing the ball back. Kennedy pumped his fist as he walked off the mound and Wigginton shook his head in frustration while rounding first base. Young slapped gloves with teammate Justin Upton and high-fived Gerardo Parra as they sauntered into the dugout. Closer J.J. Putz pitched a flawless ninth, registering a franchise-record 14th straight save to start the season. Jason Hammel (3-4) was a hard-luck loser, pitching seven strong innings and surrendering two unearned runs. Shortstop Alfredo Amezaga’s error in the sixth proved costly for Hammel, opening the door for both runs.

Located adjacent to Trinity Church at the top of Bull Run Rd. in Edwards

Amezaga was filling in for Troy Tulowitzki after the slugger was given his first day off this season. Amezaga threw high to Todd Helton at first, allowing Ryan Roberts to slide safely into the bag and set the stage for the decisive inning. Kelly Johnson then followed with a double. After Upton brought in a run with a groundout, Stephen Drew hit a shot into the left-center gap, only to have Gold Glove winner Carlos Gonzalez leap up and haul it in before brushing against the wall. But Gonzalez could do nothing about Young’s twoout flare that dropped in front of the left fielder, bringing in Johnson and making it 2-1. That was more than enough support for Kennedy, who’s now gone at least six innings in nine of his 11 starts.

Dallas has never won a championship, and neither has any of its players. Nowitzki and Jason Terry were part of the only Mavericks team to make the Finals, in 2006. They were up 2-0 and leading late in Game 3, but lost the series to the Miami Heat in six games. Dallas could get another crack at the Heat. LeBron James and Miami lead the Chicago Bulls 3-1 in the Eastern Conference finals. If the Heat win Thursday night, the Finals will begin Tuesday in Miami. If the Bulls win Thursday night, the Finals will begin next Thursday in the East winner’s city. “All I can tell everybody is, we ain’t done yet,” Mavs owner Mark Cuban said during the on-court trophy presentation ceremony. Seconds later, fans began chanting, “Beat the Heat,” drowning out coach Rick Carlisle’s on-court interview. Nowitzki and Marion each scored 26 points, and were at their best in the fourth quarter. Nowitzki scored nine in the final period, and Marion had 15. J.J. Barea added 14 and Terry scored 12 in a victory that set off the biggest on-court celebration in franchise history. The only other time the Mavs made the Finals, they won in Phoenix. This time, the home folks got to enjoy it, including franchise founder Don Carter, who traded his signature white cowboy hat -- the one that used to be featured in the team’s logo -- for a black hat that read “The Finals 2011” with a Mavs logo and the championship trophy. Fans roared again when the overhead video board showed Nowitzki wearing the hat. Russell Westbrook scored 31 points and seemed to be on a mission to force the series back to Oklahoma City. But he had two crucial turnovers during the furious finish. Kevin Durant and James Harden finished with 23 points apiece for the Thunder, a young team whose future is bright but who at this point still has a lot to learn about closing out big games.

Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Kidd and the Dallas Mavericks are going back to the NBA Finals. Nowitzki swished a go-ahead 3-pointer with 1:14 left and Shawn Marion followed with a three-point play off a steal, the pivotal plays in yet another fourth-quarter comeback, this one sending the Mavericks to a 100-96 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night that closed out the Western Conference finals in five games. After clawing back from down 15 with 5:04 left in Game 4, the Mavericks were down by six with 4:37 left in this one when they rallied again, outscoring the Thunder 14-4 the rest of the way.

SPORTS first round, with their 41-year-old goalie shutting out the Penguins in Game 7 on the road. Tampa Bay coach Guy Boucher gave backup goalie Mike Smith his first career playoff start Monday night, saying he felt Roloson -- whose midseason acquisition was one of the keys to Tampa Bay emerging as a contender -- needed a â&#x20AC;&#x153;breatherâ&#x20AC;? after starting the Lightningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first 15 postseason games. Smith stopped 17 of 19 shots in the Game 5 loss; however, Boucher didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hesitate to go back to Roloson with the Lightning facing elimination.

The Bruins are seeking their first trip to the Stanley Cup finals in 21 years, and the Lightning will try to clinch their first appearance on hockeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest stage since they won their only NHL championship in 2004. The Western Conference champion Vancouver Canucks await the winner in the finals. St. Louis also assisted on a third-period goal that put the Lightning up 4-2. His second goal -- and NHLleading 10th of the playoffs -- restored Tampa Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two-goal lead after Boston pulled within 4-3 on one of two goals Krejci scored to keep the Bruins within striking distance in the closing minutes. Roloson, who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play in Game 5 after being pulled from two of the previous three games because of ineffectiveness, also gave up a pair of first-period goals and finished with 16 saves. Bostonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tim Thomas gave up another early goal, then struggled after Krejci and Milan Lucic scored to give the Bruins a 2-1 lead through one period. The Lightning took control when St. Louis, Purcell and Steven Stamkos scored power-play goals within a 12-minute span of the second and third periods. Roloson improved to 7-0 in elimination games during his career, including 4-0 this postseason. The Lightning rallied from a 3-1 deficit to beat Pittsburgh in the

NFL sees signs fans are turned off

The NFL is seeing the early signs of cracks in fan loyalty. Ten weeks into the ownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lockout of the players, Commissioner Roger Goodell noted yesterday the negative effect the labor dispute is having on pro football. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clearly it has had an impact on the fans,â&#x20AC;? Goodell said as the owners completed their spring meetings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We see it in various metrics. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a noticeable change, TV ratings were down on the draft roughly 4 million people. traffic (is down), we see that.â&#x20AC;? Ticket sales also are down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fans want certainty,â&#x20AC;? Goodell added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t underestimate that the fans are going through challenges just in the general economy.â&#x20AC;? That certainty isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t likely to come soon. Both sides have a date in 8th U.S. District Court on June 3 for hearings on the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appeal to uphold the lockout. A decision probably wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come for several weeks, and while another set of mediation sessions is scheduled to start June 7, not much is expected from those discussions while the appeal is being considered. The ownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; meetings included lengthy talks about the labor dispute, but no deadlines have been set â&#x20AC;&#x201D; yet â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for the opening of training camps, which usually happens in late July. That drop-dead date â&#x20AC;&#x153;obviously is coming,â&#x20AC;? Goodell said, barring a collective bargaining agreement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made it clear that (revenue loss) is current and will continue to accelerate and impact on the ability of ownership to make an offer (the players) find attractive,â&#x20AC;? he said. Owners were presented the full range of plans for opening weekend, from the first game on Thursday night at Lambeau Field to commemorations of the Sept. 11 attacks on the first full Sunday of games. Those dates are not in jeopardy yet, but the longer the impasse, the more in danger they would become, particularly with the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marketing partners, sponsors and advertisers who must commit dollars to those events well in advance. Fifteen teams trained last summer at complexes other than their in-season facilities, and some have deadlines as early as July 1 to decide whether to return to those locales or hold a truncated training camp at home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it dragged on or there was a shorter camp, something like that might not be inconceivable,â&#x20AC;? Colts owner Jim Irsay said. The Colts training camp is held about an hour from Indianapolis at Anderson University.

Many questioned whether the town of Vail should provide the $1.5 million requested from the VVF for the championships if no actual races would be held there. After months of holding a hard line on the location of races, VVF officials proposed in February that the Nations Team race could be held at Golden Peak. Officials changed that line after discovering a recent change to the rules for the Nations Team race that would make Golden Peak’s course acceptable, VVF President Ceil Folz said yesterday. Nations Team The event involves teams of four skiers from each country, whose members race head-to-head against one another. Until late last year, the rules had required



that each team member race in a different discipline. Under these rules, Golden Peak would never have qualified as an official course, Folz said. The new rules require each skier race on a slightly modified GS course. Golden Peak is too short for world championship GS, Folz said, and too flat for world championship slalom, but perfectly tailored for the brand of GS racing involved in the Nations Team event. “It’s a very American-like event,” Folz said of the Nations Team. Having competitive skiers race directly against one other appeals to American fans, she said, who prefer direct competition to time trials. All of the medal events for men and women will still be held at Beaver Creek.


expectation of having access to all facilities,” the email reads. It goes on to say that the fault for the closures lies with the CTC, and describes the club and its ownership as “victims” of the CTC’s actions. “It is with regret and deep sadness that

we take these actions,” the email reads. “However, this was a necessary first step in lifting the dark clouds which have been hanging over Cordillera for almost a year, all of which in our opinion was caused by the disingenuous actions of the CTC.”


Karen Wood even cited some deductive reasoning skills her class used when their butterflies were the first to crack the cocoon. It was determined by her class that butterflies progress faster in a warmer environment since Karen Wood keeps her classroom warmer than most.
