Lycra tights, rights and wrongs Skin tight ain’t right when your skin ain’t tight

packing the last kilometer of the course. Christian Vande Velde, who finished

New rule: If you’re old enough to have seen the Coors Classic in Vail with your very own eyes and were old enough to vote for Michael Dukakis when you did it, you’re too old to wear Lycra bike shorts. Sierra, 22, and Brittany, 21, were in Vail on Thursday for the USA Pro Cycling Challenge, promoting Cannondale bicycle stuff. They make Lycra move in ways that defy the laws of physics. On them, the word Cannondale appears to have more moving parts than a Swiss watch. RANDY In the passage from WYRICK the cradle to the grave, they are in the Lycra stage. If you’re like me — too old to slam dunk and too young to have made the Nixon enemies list — your goal should be to age more gracefully than Keith Richards. Lycra is a privilege, not a right. The USA Pro Cycling Challenge hit Vail on Thursday, and so did thousands of race fans. Some of us are at that special stage of life where skin tight does not become us, mostly because our skin isn’t that tight. It was 1988 the last time a major bicycle stage race rolled through town. The Coors International Bicycle Classic ran a stage up Vail Pass. On Thursday, the USAPCC followed the same trail blazed by David Phinney, Andy Hempstead and hundreds of others. They looked great in their Lycra bike shorts, and so did you back then. 1 But 2 ⁄2 decades of time and drive-through windows have transformed us from lords in Lycra into Spam in a trash bag. Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper was Thursday’s first forerunner. He looks pretty good, and he’s our age. But he gets an executive dispensation, and he started a brewery. The Vail Police officers we talked to say it’s not a capital offense to appear in public as Spam in a trash bag, but you could be sentenced to Lycra liposuction. Hickenlooper will not grant you a pardon. Kerry Donovan is now an esteemed member of Vail’s Town Council. She was 10 years old when the Vail stage of the Coors Classic rolled by her family’s deck. Her most vivid memory?

Town of Avon is prepared for crowds Stage 4 of USA i Race-day Pro Cycling events in Avon Challenge begins today By Lauren Glendenning LGLENDENNING@VAILDAILY.COM

AVON — The Vail Valley is home to not one but two of the stages in the USA Pro Cycling Challenge — a unique opportunity and one that is expected to boost the local economy this week. The town of Avon has been preparing for Stage 4 of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge for months, and it all comes together today. The town anticipates the event to be as big or bigger than its annual Salute to the USA celebration on July 4, which is the town’s largest event every year, said Jamie Walker, town spokeswoman. Avon Town Manager Larry Brooks sees a positive future for the event in Avon — construction is no longer the economic base, but anything that energizes local businesses and creates a critical mass is the new economy, Brooks said. “We scrambled really hard to get this,” Brooks said. “I’m convinced it

New steel towers were installed Thursday, and the helicopter will return today to place the remaining towers. Construction of the new lift is making steady progress and is on track to debut in time for Christmas. The helicopter is moving new lift towers from a staging area at midmountain to Rose Bowl, where crews on the ground bolt the towers into place. The helicopter transports the towers at dawn, taking advantage of colder morning air, which assists with carrying more weight.

Avon council sends transit tax to ballot Daily staff report NEWSROOM@VAILDAILY.COM

Consignment Furniture…

AVON — The Avon Town Council this week approved ballot language for a proposed sales tax increase called the “Sustainable Transit Project.” Council members decided not to ask voters for a lodging tax increase that would have helped pay for marketing initiatives. Finding a way to fund bus service has been a long-standing topic in Avon. The council considered a similar, but more expansive, ballot question last year but decided to focus on transit with this proposal. The ballot language will ask voters for a 0.35 percent sales tax increase. Town officials estimate the increase, if passed, will raise $875,000 per year. Council members decided to keep the sales tax increase small instead of asking for a 0.4 percent sales tax and 1 percent lodging

tax increase. If approved, the funds would be used to pay for transit operations, maintenance and capital costs including bus replacements and bus-stop improvements. The project, in partnership with funding from Beaver Creek, also would restore the express skier shuttle from the town core to Beaver Creek, including a stop at Avon Station. Town officials say the tax would increase bus capacity during ski season to eliminate late buses and overcrowding and extend service within town until 8:30 p.m. The project also includes an express evening restaurant shuttle between Avon and Beaver Creek from 6 to 10 p.m. during ski season to bring guests to Avon shops and restaurants and connect Avon’s guests to Beaver Creek. Service improvements could be phased in during the 2011-12 ski season. All new bus routes will be open to the public for free.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR School district makes case We believe that a quality public school system is the heart of this community. We realize that this is an extremely difficult time to ask for an increase in taxes and that we are all suffering financially. Over the past two years, Eagle County Schools has shared in this pain, cutting more than $9 million from annual expenditures. Additionally, the district has been forced to reduce reserves by approximately $5 million in order to prevent even deeper cuts. These budget cuts and reserve expenditures have been forced upon us due to state funding reductions. The district’s 2010-11 cuts in the amount of $4 million included: • 49 full-time-equivalent (FTE) position cuts (39 at the building level, 10 at the district level). • A pay freeze for all employees. • Cuts to incentive pay. • Cuts to retirees who were coming back as parttime employees. Fast forwarding to the 2011-12 school year, the district’s $5 million in cuts consisted of: • 47 FTE cuts (27 at the building level, 20 at the district level). • Delayed replacement of computers and buses. • Loss of three student-contact days (which equals a 1.5 percent pay cut for all employees). • District office budget cuts. • Eliminating signing bonuses for hard-to-fill positions. • Teacher incentive fund grant-related cuts. • Building budget cuts. • Maintenance cuts. • Health care cost increases passed on to employees. Eagle County Schools has maintained a strong upward path of achievement and is paving the way for innovation, reform and accomplishment in public education today. The district has been recognized as a state and national leader in 21st-century education. We know this because we’ve: • Been successful in recruiting and retaining highly qualified and knowledgeable educators. • Been one of the first districts in the country to abolish the lockstep salary schedule and successfully implement a pay-for-performance system nearly a decade before it’s become fashionable. • Established a record of high student achievement (with data to support this claim). • Made significant and measurable progress in closing the achievement gap that exists between minority students and non-minority students. • Emerged as a national leader in instructional development related to delivery and content. Most recently, the district has taken on the challenge of redesigning the curriculum for prekindergarten through 12th grade in mathematics, science, social studies, reading, writing and communicating and gained national attention because of it. Among increased costs and ongoing reductions to per-pupil funding from the state, additional cuts are expected, which in turn will cause us to lose momentum.

School district staff and Board of Education members have worked diligently to keep the cuts away from the classroom as much as possible, and moving forward, this is no longer an option. In reality, additional cuts will directly impede our ability to provide necessary classroom support for all students; retain quality teachers; offer extracurricular activities, arts and athletics; replace buses and computers that have exceeded their useful lifespan; maintain buildings and grounds; and mitigate state budget cuts. Rebuilding our local economy requires a strong educational system and community investment to attract new business and jobs and retain and grow existing businesses. Knowing that future cuts will significantly impact the quality of education offered in Eagle County, it will be up to the voters to decide if they are willing to invest in our children by supporting this mill levy. Eagle County Board of Education

Big Oil not profitable? In response to Buddy Shipley’s “Government is not a charity,” I must point out that it is disingenuous and convenient to say that oil companies make only “2 cents to 7 cents per gallon.” This statistic refers to what a typical retailer, like 7-Eleven, earns from selling a gallon of gas and is complicated by the fact that most retailers (at least ones in competitive markets, which is not the case in Eagle Valley) depress the profit margin on gasoline to the greatest extent possible to encourage patronization and sales of more lucrative products such as snacks, drinks and candy. In fact, the profits made by big oil companies such as Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch Shell and Chevron are as high or higher than they have ever been regardless of the current recession. Even BP is still fiscally sound and making money in spite of all the costs incurred by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. While I appreciate anyone who is willing to go out on a limb and write a letter to the editor in our relatively small community, and certainly Shipley was able to get me to read his entire opinion, I couldn’t help but notice the large number of out-of-context quotes that were used in his rebuttal. So when I came to, “Sadly, the entire world knows that Obama is no fan of Churchill,” I had to ask myself, “Really?” But the troubling reality that Shipley’s piece foisted upon me, yet again, is captured by one rhetorical question that has consumed my political thinking for some time now: How well is partisan politics serving the needs of the populace in the United States of America today? I think many of us need to wake up, look around objectively and realize that the problems we face as a nation are not due to Democrats, Republicans or Raelians. I am all for strong opinions and healthy Letters, page A6

The girls of the household were gone for the evening, so I had my chance to watch something they’d hate. I settled on “Restrepo,” a documentary about an Army platoon’s 15thmonth deployment in the toughest combat zone in Afghanistan. Then I read the book version, “War.” “The Perfect Storm” author Sebastian Junger wrote “War” and produced the film with photojournalist Tim Hetherington, who recently was killed on assignment in Libya. Both stories are award-winning bestsellers, blah, blah, in their categories. But I didn’t watch, then read, for the entertainment value or to evaluate how well the film and book were put together. Call it more personal research. Not sure why it kicked up now, but I’ve long suspected that born a few years earlier, like some of the Vietnam DON vets I fought ROGERS wildfire with, or much later, I might have been dumb enough to put myself in a place like the Korengal Valley. Then regret it deeply. The hotshot fire-crew years in the ’80s were close enough. I was compelled to take on the toughest, most dangerous work of my profession at the time. But nature’s blind physics are much easier to handle than people actively trying to kill you. Junger taps the heart of it at the grunt level, and that was what sucked me in. I watched the film. Read the book. Watched the film again. Yes, this is a living-room vantage on what in real life would scare the ... out of anyone sane. There would seem to be nothing dumber than pounding dirt for periods exceeding the Leadville 100 trail run all summer and fall in “good” fire season. Other than signing up for combat, which I suspect I would have done. So I dodged a bullet, in other words. My firefighting came to an end thanks to a knee and a girl. I’m still married to her. And the knee, well, it’s been repaired a couple of times along with the other one. The other piece of this is a parallel with the author and filmmaker, Junger. He’s a kindred soul, falling into journalism much like I did, following an injury and a whole lot of introspection. My eldest child’s lifetime ago, I ignored some sage advice from an alcoholic journalist who fell so far he worked for me. “Go to the nearest Associated Press office,” he said, “and tell them you want to go to a war.” That’s what he did. Wound up in Vietnam. Instead I started a family. Junger wrote “The Perfect Storm.” And then went to wars. So “Restrepo” is that parallel universe twice over. I’m one lucky guy.

Hundred years ago I’m writing about Jullian Galloway’s thoughtful letter, “Sell pot in supermarkets” (Aug. 20). A hundred years ago, all types of recreational drugs were legally sold in local grocery stores and pharmacies for pennies per dose. A hundred years ago, the term “drug-related crime” didn’t exist. A hundred years ago, drug lords, drug cartels or even drug dealers as we know them today didn’t exist, either. A hundred years ago, there were no illegal drugs because no drugs were illegal. A hundred years ago, our overall crime rate was a small fraction of what it is today. A hundred years ago, our drugaddiction rate was about the same as it is today, according to federal Judge John L.

Some investment Is anyone else getting tired of hearing liberals refer to government spending as “investments,” like Scott Glasser’s letter Monday criticizing the tea party and Butch Mazzuca’s statements? Budget deficits have become such a natural occurrence, Democrats just ignore them. There is no limit to their spending. It doesn’t matter that the federal government pays $30 billion to $35 billion a month for interest only on the debt. That’s like throwing money down a rathole. It doesn’t matter that the government is going into debt by $4.1 billion a day. Our stock market is reacting to what is happening in Europe and will happen here one of these days. Overwhelming debt is about to capsize some of the European Union members. The EU is pouring money into Greece, Italy, Spain and Ireland, and who knows if that will save them? Who will pour money into the United States when our debt overwhelms us? Our pal China? U.S. banks are still going bankrupt, individuals still being foreclosed on, and personal bankruptcies are still sky high. The federal government borrows 40 percent of every dollar it spends. The printing of $600 billion of new money will not help any of us. It just

deflates the value of the dollar. But no one wants to talk about that. Just ignore it, and it goes away. And the Democrats say it’s all the tea party’s fault anyway. This is so absurd that it’s not even worth discussing. Let’s get one thing straight: Does anyone in their right mind believe that if taxes were raised on the “rich” and the feds collected, say, $100 billion of “new” taxes, the government would pay down the debt by $100 billion? You’re out of your mind if you believe that. Only two presidents have made payments on the debt, Eisenhower and Truman, and they didn’t pay it off, just made payments on it. The $100 billion would be spent on programs that would buy re-elections for every politician! Ron Ownby Gypsum

Great inspiration Thanks for the article about John Klish. I had the rare opportunity to train with John when he was one of the coaches (along with Lisa Isom and Josiah Middaugh) for the Dogma Snowshoe training this past winter. What a wonderful, encouraging coach. He got me so inspired I actually started trail running this summer and participated in the La Sportiva 5K trail-running races. I also rode Colorado-Eagle River Ride Century! At 57, I never thought I would be learning how to trail run or bike ride 100 miles! Thanks, John, for being such an inspiration! Looking forward to snowshoe training this winter! Annie Goodman

second in the time trial and is second overall going into Stage 4, said he is impressed with amount of fans that have been following the race in Colorado. “They’re pumped, especially coming on the backside of the Tour de France,” Vande Velde said during the news conference in Vail on Thursday afternoon. “Having the guys they’ve been watching on TV come into their backyards, people are just losing their minds.” Vandevelde called the amount of enthusiasm for this race “unmatchable.” “It was a great atmosphere out there,” Vande Velde said. “It was like a pilgrimage of everyone, pretty much all of Denver riding their bikes up there. It was neat to be a part of that, and then the crowd, of course, in downtown Vail just blew my mind.” The fans came from all over the United States to see the USA Pro Cycling Challenge, a race that some are already saying could be the American version of the Tour de France. Steven Bratland and his wife, Hilary Chester, flew in from Washington to follow the race this week. They rented a minivan and have been camping — and sleeping in the back of the van — since Monday. “So many of the European riders are here. It feels almost like a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see them,” Chester said. “And it’s so intimate. We’ve gotten right up with a lot of the riders. It’s grand but intimate, too.” For people like Chester and Bratland, who would love to travel to France to

Sandwich of the Week $5.99

watch the Tour, this race has opened up the doors to see the best international cyclists here at home. The USA Pro Cycling Challenge has made all of that within reach, Chester said. Watching professional cycling in person is something special, Bratland said. You get to see their speed and athleticism and can truly appreciate what these guys can do, he said. “I was a professional martial artist, and these guys make me feel weak,” he said. The race has left impressions here in Colorado. It has left fans star-struck and also proud. “It’s phenomenal,” said Jill Farschman, of Denver. “We are just extremely proud of Colorado that we pulled (this race) off. I think we’ve showed ourselves extremely well.” For those visiting from out of state, such as the Muzik family, from Temecula, Calif., being race spectators this week has been a privilege. “It’s been great. Both (Aspen and Vail) have been fabulous. They’ve been wonderful places to visit,” David Muzik said. He said he’d love to see this race become the American Tour de France. From what he’s seen along the way so far, the turnouts look good enough to make that happen, at least from a spectator perspective. “It’s been a great race. It’s been really exciting,” he said. There’s no word yet on whether the USA Pro Cycling Challenge will return next year. Vande Velde said he hopes the sponsors are getting back 100 times what they put in. That just might be enough to make this an annual event and, perhaps, the American version of the Tour de France.

WYRICK FROM PAGE A2

The wrecks. The girl’s got a little NASCAR in her soul. They used to use hay bales to mark the Coors Classic course through Vail, recalled Mike Brown. A rider would wander wide on a curve, smack it and bust open a bale. Then others would hit the hay — and not in a metaphorical way — and flop to the pavement like bike-race road kill. Booths lined Vail’s streets Thursday, as they will Avon’s streets today — people selling things, promoting things. Race fans were lined up hours before the race to buy official souvenirs. It was like a rock show, only without the performancedepressing substances — $24 for a T-shirt and $80 for a bike jersey. Vail town officials were handing out cowbells, and they were such a hot commodity that they were delivered by an unarmed but highly trained firefighter. On Thursday, God was a bikerace fan, and the sun shone brightly on both those who should wear Lycra and those who should not. Not even the racers moved through Vail as quickly as the excitement and nostalgia. “If I didn’t live here, I’d think this was a pretty town,” said Vi Brown. “I do live here, and I still think that.” Staff Writer Randy Wyrick can be reached at 970-748-2935 or rwyrick@vaildaily.com.

New ‘The Daily Weekly’ debuts today in valley

EAGLE COUNTY — What the heck is a “Daily Weekly”? The answer isn’t as difficult as it first seems, but does require some explanation. The Daily Weekly is a new, weekly publication from the Vail Daily that wraps up the week’s entertainment scene in one package. It allows locals and visitors alike a place to find a week’s worth of fun in one handy place. And yes, that means careful readers are going to find stories they may have seen in previous editions of the Vail Daily. But that’s not a bad thing. “Let’s say our High Life section runs a great story on Wednesday about something that’s happening this weekend. A visitor who comes up Friday isn’t going to see it,” Daily Weekly Publisher Mark Bricklin said. “And not every local sees the paper every day.”

Better yet, the Daily Weekly is going to have a focus on fun. “It’s a lighter approach,” Bricklin said. “We’re not covering government, we’re covering events, activities, music and eating.” The Daily Weekly will also help readers get a little more in-depth look at the valley’s entertainment scene. Because the Vail Daily comes out every day, the paper’s calendar section can only look a few days ahead. The calendar in the Daily Weekly will look a bit farther out. And sometimes galleries or music promoters will send more extensive news on their events than we can fit into the daily editions. Often, that leaves room for little more than a photo and a caption. The Daily Weekly will allow a little more explanation. “There’s so much going on the valley,” Bricklin said. “The Daily Weekly is a nice way to group it all together. “We’re going to have fun with it.” The Daily Weekly publishes on Fridays and is available in red and white Vail Trail boxes in East Vail, West Vail, Intermountain, Matterhorn, Red Cliff, Minturn, EagleVail, Avon, Edwards, Wolcott, Eagle and Gypsum. Bricklin is calling on community members to remake the newspaper boxes into one-of-a-kind art projects. Email theweekly@vaildaily.com for more information.

Tunnels lie under Gadhafi compound Rebels confirm suspicions of hidden network By Ben Hubbard ASSOCIATED PRESS

TRIPOLI, Libya — Beneath the grassy courtyard of Moammar Gadhafi’s private compound, long tunnels connect bunkers, command centers and spiral staircases that lead to a luxurious home filled with Gadhafi family photos. The electric lights are out and the banks of telephones have gone dead. When rebels took over the compound Tuesday, they discovered what had long been rumored: An elaborate secret underground network. Outsiders had never seen the tunnels beneath the Bab al-Aziziya compound. Many Libyans assume that underground passages connect all of Tripoli — which they say explains Gadhafi’s ability to appear for speeches in places where no one saw him arrive. Some guess he fled the city through one of the tunnels as the rebels swept into Tripoli, though because of damage from NATO bombing, it was not possible to determine if the tunnels actually extend outside of Bab al-Aziziya. After overrunning the compound, long seen as the symbolic heart of Gadhafi’s rule, the rebels set alight his family home, seized huge numbers of weapons and turned the complex into a staging ground for fighting elsewhere in the capital. They also discovered the underground network beneath it, a web of tunnels whose reach is still unclear. “There’s a Tripoli above ground and a Tripoli underground,” said rebel fighter Ismail Dola, 26, exploring the tunnels with friends. But few rebels were surprised that Gadhafi, who ruled for four decades and survived multiple assassination attempts, would have a secret world where he could escape. “It’s normal that someone like

Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi stands during the singing of the national anthem at the Bab Azizia Palace in Tripoli in 2007. Moammar would do this to protect himself,” said rebel Riad Gneidi, walking curiously through the tunnels with an assault rifle over his shoulder. “Any dictator has to have a way to protect himself and to escape in times like these.” The Bab al-Aziziya compound had always been a mystery to most Libyans. Though it is one of the city’s largest landmarks, no streets signs indicate where it is. Few ever entered, and many Tripoli residents said they wouldn’t even walk nearby, fearing security guards on the compound’s high green walls would get suspicious and arrest or shoot them.

Four days after the rebels arrived in the capital, Gadhafi’s whereabouts remain a mystery. His spokesman, in a Thursday phone call to the AP, insists he still commands resistance to the rebels — a claim that strains credulity, given the breakdown of the regime’s communications networks after months of NATO bombings. Gadhafi himself has released two audio messages urging his followers to fight “until victory or martyrdom.” But the rebels are slowly taking control of the country. On Thursday, 1,000 rebels laid siege to a cluster of Tripoli buildings not far from the compound, an area believed to

be the last stronghold inside the capital of Gadhafi loyalists. The rebels appeared to have won the battle by sundown. The tunnels have become an attraction for curious rebels. They are high enough for a tall man to stand upright and wide enough so two people can walk comfortably abreast. Their walls are foot-thick concrete, with heavy metal doors that divide the tunnels into sections. Gas masks in plastic cases have been distributed throughout the complex, along with stashes of water, cola, cookies and tuna. Empty refrigerators stand in some corners. The tunnels lead to an array of rooms. Some are simple sleeping quarters with double beds, small refrigerators and dressers, perhaps meant for guards. Others appear to be blast bunkers, with thicker walls and small metal hatches. In one tunnel lies the ruins of a smashed white and green golf cart — the kind Gadhafi often drove in the compound. In places, the tunnels open into multiroom complexes. One lies under Gadhafi’s former residence, which the United States bombed in 1984. Doors at the top of curving, tiled stairways to the house have been bricked shut. Nearby is a broken elevator. Some of the tunnels are now black with soot and filled with debris from NATO bombings. One area on the compound’s edge, reduced to rubble by the bombs, has rooms full of TVs and at least three getaway ramps leading to the street. Before the bombing, it was covered with grass and invisible from above. Another section has bunk beds, a full sitting room, a bathroom, kitchen and an office full of video production equipment. The rest of the area has been reduced to rubble, and the sun shines through holes punched in the roof by bombs. Peeking out the hatch at the top of a ladder nearby, one sees carnival rides on the lawn above — twirling tea cups and a small Ferris wheel — perhaps for Gadhafi’s grandchildren.

Low rates may stifle economy

FF 20%TEO D ITEMS

By Paul Wiseman

SELEC d with any other

AP ECONOMICS WRITER

WASHINGTON — Super-low interest rates haven’t done what they usually do after a recession. They haven’t ignited economic growth or revived the home market or persuaded consumers to spend freely again. They have, though, caused misery for retirees and others who depend on interest income. Such income plummeted 27 percent from 2008 to last year. Now, some economists worry that low rates might be hurting the economy itself — defeating the purpose of the Federal Reserve’s low-rate policies. When savers earn less, they spend less. And spending by individuals drives about 70 percent of the U.S. economy. Those concerns arise 21⁄2 years after the Fed pushed short-term rates to near zero, part of an effort to combat the gravest recession since the 1930s. It’s kept rates there since. The Fed is “turning the faucet, and nothing’s coming out,” says William Ford, a former president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. “I don’t see any pluses on the plus side of the ledger ... But they’re ignoring the strong negative effect that they’re having. They’re killing savers. Retirees are earning nothing on their life savings.” The Fed this month announced plans to keep short-term rates near zero through mid-2013 unless the economy improves. And in a speech Friday, Chairman Ben Bernanke will likely lay out options for lowering long-term rates even further below the current near-record lows.

AP AIRLINES WRITER

Airlines began to cancel flights and move planes out of the way as Hurricane Irene barreled toward the U.S. mainland on Thursday. The storm will likely force hundreds of cancellations through this weekend and create delays that could ripple across the country. Airlines said passengers could rebook those trips to many East Coast destinations, from Boston to the Carolinas, for free. American Airlines and its American Eagle affiliate, with an extensive network in the Caribbean, canceled 126 flights on Thursday. Most were in the Bahamas and south Florida, including Miami, a jumping-off spot for flights to the Caribbean and Latin America. Delta Air Lines reported four cancellations, and United one. Those and other airlines were watching Irene’s path before deciding how many flights to scrub and where on Friday. Even before Irene’s arrival, unrelated thunderstorms were causing delays of up to two hours Thursday at major airports in the New York and Washington areas, according to flighttracking service FlightAware. The service’s CEO, Daniel Baker, predicted that Irene-related cancellations would pick up Friday afternoon and become significant on Saturday.

DENVER — Two Secret Service agents are asking the Supreme Court to declare they are immune from a First Amendment lawsuit filed by a Colorado man who they arrested after he confronted then-Vice President Dick Cheney. Steven Howards was arrested in the Colorado resort of Beaver STATE BRIEFS town Creek in 2006 after he touched Cheney on the arm and told him his Iraq War policies were “disgusting.” No federal charges were filed against Howards, and state charges were dropped. Howards sued the two agents, Virgil D. “Gus” Reichle Jr. and Dan Doyle, claiming he was arrested in retaliation for criticizing Cheney. The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver ruled in March that Howards could sue the agents. The agents are asking the Supreme Court to review that ruling. ASPEN

Chefs compete to cook tasty, nutritious food A one-day cook-off in Aspen is challenging some of the city’s top chefs to make a nutritious dish that also tastes good.

The contest Saturday is part of the Nutritarian Festival this weekend. Pyramid Bistro chef Martin Oswald says the point is to show people that healthy food doesn’t have to taste bad. The competing chefs can’t use cheese or butter. Forty percent of a contestant’s score will be decided by a panel of judges who will review each meal’s nutritional content. The public will decide the other 60 percent by voting on which dish has the best flavor. Oswald says if a dish is healthy but nobody likes it, then there’s no point. BRECKENRIDGE

Breckenridge considering limit on number of skiers The Breckenridge Town Council is considering asking for a cap on daily skier visits to reduce the impact on the community on peak days. The recommendation is among a list of requests to be sent to the Forest Service, which is considering allowing the Breckenridge Ski Resort to add about 550 acres of skiing on Peak 6 within its existing U.S. Forest Service permit. According to the Summit Daily, a recent study of the proposal indicates a possible increase in the number of annual peak days for the town and the mountain, but also shows the expansion will likely pour millions of dollars into the local economy.

Experts: Most Coloradans unprepared for quakes Most Coloradans are unprepared for an earthquake even though officials have spent years studying the consequences of a big one and have identified as many as 100 fault lines across the state, emergency planners say. Earthquakes here are infrequent, and residents understandably are more concerned about wildfires and floods, said Anne Sheehan, a University of Colorado geological sciences professor. “It’s not on their radar,”’ Sheehan said. Monday’s magnitude-5.3 quake in southern Colorado was the state’s largest since 1967. It caused minor damage and no injuries. For years, a panel of experts has been meeting to analyze potential earthquake hazards and discuss mitigation, Sheehan said. It’s called the Colorado Earthquake Hazard Mitigation Council, formed after the state disbanded a natural hazard mitigation council. Its 20-odd members include emergency responders, structural engineers, insurance industry representatives and geologists. Dave Hard, director of the state Division of Emergency Management, says people should be prepared to take care of themselves for 72 hours after a major earthquake and have shelter, food and water on hand.

Levi wins time trial, takes back lead Leipheimer edges out Vande Velde By Chris Freud CFREUD@VAILDAILY.COM

VAIL — Ten miles up a mountain — 1,783 feet in elevation change to be precise — during a 25-minute span and it comes down to a one-hundredth of a second? Levi Leipheimer edged, squeaked by, slipped past and/or blinked his way to winning Stage 3, a time trial up Vail Pass, of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge by one-hundredth of a second over Christian Vande Velde on Thursday. “I never expect it’s going to be half-a-second (sic). I suspected Christian was going to be my strongest competitor,” Leipheimer said. “He looked very strong (Wednesday). And, I think, like me, he was little upset after what happened with ourselves the way the race played out. So I knew he would be motivated. I said it a couple times earlier — I consider Christian and I share this victory.” In the process, Leipheimer surged into the overall lead of the Challenge by 17 seconds over Tejay Van Garderen, who held the yellow jersey and finished third Thursday. Leipheimer holds an 11-second advantage against Vande Velde, now in second. Tom Danielson took fourth, 33-hundredths off the pace Thursday, despite a case of food poisoning. He is also fourth in the overall, 21 ticks behind Leipheimer. George Hincapie rounds out the new overall topfive 53 seconds behind. Columbian Rafael Infantino Abreu jumped into sixth (1:14 behind) by finishing third Thursday.

Photo finish The results of Stage 3 show Leipheimer and Vande Velde tied because the overall standings don’t go to hundredths of a second. And as gracious as Leipheimer was in sharing the victory with Vande Velde, there was no question as to which rider was on the right side of that one-hundredth. “It was really heartbreaking,” Vande Velde said. “It was closer than I ever thought it would have been.” Leipheimer went with a timetrial bike Thursday, while Vande Velde opted for road bicycle, and Vande Velde discussed the difference between the two models, especially in light of Thursday’s margin. “I think it’s 50-50,” he said. “There’s even times with 3 or 4 (kilometers) to go where I was still going 40K per hour on the

hill. I don’t know. I really don’t know. My bike is light. I have one of the lightest road bikes in the world, and I was trying to take advantage of that. My bike, with the bar and the wheels, is still under 7 (kilograms). My time-trial bike is 8-plus, so it’s kind of fat. We thought the climb was going to be a bigger deal to take advantage of than the flat.” Of course, with one-hundredth of a second deciding the stage, there are so many things that could have changed the result. Vande Velde talked about whether a water bottle on his ride could have made a difference and then offered up the suggesDOMINIQUE TAYLOR | dtaylor@vaildaily.com tion that leaning forward in one place or another could have U.S. rider Christian Vande Velde pushes up the final section of the Vail Pass time trial course Thursday accounted for a few hundredths. during Stage 3 of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge in Vail.

Independence Pass) and I wasn’t doing very well when the rain came down during the descent. I was having problems handling my bike. The point he makes is absolutely fair. If you make a mistake, someone’s going to take the race away from you, but it definitely motivated me for today.” And whether Leipheimer can or cannot handle descents was really irrelevant Thursday with 10 miles of

uphill. The challenge was the final stretch, and it was clear Leipheimer wasn’t thinking about anything anyone said. “There’s not a lot of thought, except for, ‘Please God, let this be over with,’” Leipheimer said. “You have to have the experience of how to meter yourself because it’s an uphill time trial — it gets harder as the course goes on and we’re at altitude. Even though I held back at the beginning, I was finished with 1K to go.” Not only did Leipheimer win the

stage and the coveted yellow jersey as the Challenge goes north with today’s stage from Avon to Steamboat Springs, but he also won a lifetime ski pass to Vail and Beaver Creek. “Levi won the lifetime skiing, but he’s going to be taking me skiing a lot,” Vande Velde said. “He’s going to be paying for beers forever.” Sports Editor Chris Freud can be reached at 970-748-2934 or cfreud@vaildaily.com.

American David Zabriskie races out of the start of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge Vail time trial on Thursday in front of Solaris in Vail Village.

Americans like riding in their home country U.S. and Colorado cyclists finish well in Vail Pass time trial By Melanie Wong SPECIAL TO THE DAILY

VAIL — It’s always good to have home court advantage, as some of the top contenders at the USA Pro Cycling Challenge can tell you. Six Americans finished in the top 10 of Thursday’s time trial up Vail Pass, and Americans also make up the top five spots overall after the third stage of the race. With the Tour of California earlier in the year, the Tour of Utah recently wrapping up, and Colorado hosting this week’s Pro Cycling Challenge, more of the country’s top cyclists are able to spend more time racing at home. “It’s great to show the fans here what we do over (in Europe),” said American David Zabriskie of Team Garmin-Cervelo. “Everyone seems pretty excited, and all the racers seem pretty happy with it, especially the guys from Colorado.”

A great time to take the ‘plunge’

Colorado riders play host

970.926.9470 • zipadventures.com

Many world-class riders in the peloton call Colorado home, and some said they are proud to be hosting the race in their “backyard terrain”. Garmin-Cervelo rider Daniel Summerhill lives in Denver when not training and racing

abroad — he’ll also gladly point out that he graduated from Cherry Creek High School. “It’s awesome to race at home, and I have so many friends and family up here supporting me,” he said after Wednesday’s time trial. “I heard my name cheered quite a lot today. I really can’t describe how cool it is to say I’m from here.” He said he’s also proud of the support that Colorado fans have shown for the race. “Guys (in the race) are saying that the crowds here are bigger and better than at the Tour of California,” he said. “People here are absolutely insane. This is world-class, and so are the fans.” HTC-Highroad’s Danny Pate, a Colorado Springs native, said the race route has done a good job of showcasing the best of Colorado. “It’s awesome to come through towns like Vail, Aspen and Crested Butte, all these places I know,” he said. “They’re great places to race through.” The familiar terrain gives some of the riders a home court advantage as well. Christian Vande Velde, of the Boulder-based Garmin-Cervelo team, said he was especially familiar with the time trial course. “I know this course so well — I’ve ridden it hundreds of times,” he said. “I’ve trained for the tour here 10 years ago, and I’ve ridden it so many times in rain, snow and hail.” But home-court advantage or not, many riders admitted to struggling in the high altitude of the mountains.

and Boulder sit at 5,000 to 6,000 feet, most of the stages are between 7,500 and nearly 12,000 feet. Pate, of Colorado Springs, said the elevation requires riders to adjust their racing accordingly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t breathe,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the big surges, and if you give a big, hard effort, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recover. You just have to ride smooth.â&#x20AC;? American rider Ben King (Team RadioShack) said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s used to mountains â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but none like those heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s found in Colorado. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m from Vermont, and we have moun-

tains there, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a different kind of suffering,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more depressing. All the Europeans basically race at sea level as well, and only a few races are at altitude like this.â&#x20AC;? The difficulty of high-elevation racing goes beyond feeling more out of breath, said Hunter Allen, co-founder of training software company TrainingPeaks. According to Allen, riders can expect to see a 10 to 15 percent decrease in their power output when riding at 6,000 to 9,000 feet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going hard like they are at sea level, but they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t produce the same amount of force,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People who are acclimatized wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t suffer as much, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highly individualized.â&#x20AC;?

From France to the Rockies: Racers feeling tired, homesick By Melanie Wong SPECIAL TO THE DAILY

KRISTIN ANDERSON | kanderson@vaildaily.com

American Tejay Van Garderen races around a corner during the USA Pro Cycling Challenge Vail time trial on Thursday in Vail Village.

‘A race of truth’ Time-trial racers prove even the best of the best suffer

Can’t win all the time “It’s a big deal to have the podium of the Tour de France here, but at the same time, it’s unfair to expect all of us to win all the time,” Leipheimer said. “Those guys went really deep at the tour. For Cadel to even have this form is impressive. We’re really lucky to have them here.” Americans have done well in the general standings at the Pro Cycling Challenge so far, but some Americans who raced in France are also dealing with injury and sickness. David Zabriskie crashed out of the Tour de France on the ninth day of the race and said he’s still feeling the effects. The crash tweaked a problematic knee, he said. “After the crash, I thought everything was fine, but every time I rode it was still hurting. I ended up having to take two weeks off doing nothing,” he said.

By Lauren Glendenning LGLENDENNING@VAILDAILY.COM

VAIL — The famed Coors Classic time trial course is back in action more than 20 years after Colorado’s last major stage race, bringing with it surprises for some of the racers who typically excel in time trials. While the 10-mile course that travels up the old Highway 6 on Vail Pass is an uphill climb of more than 1,700 feet, some racers felt the uphill was flat, while others felt it was exhausting. David Zabriskie, an American who finished seventh in Thursday’s time trial and is 71st overall heading into stage 4, thought the course was going to be steeper. That being said, though, it was still an uphill climb the whole way, which he said has its challenges. “It’s harder for me. I can’t float my way and do some techniques that I do,” Zabriskie said. “Uphill really is a race of truth.” He said it was a good course, but knew right away that the top guys such as Levi Leipheimer, Christian Vande Velde and Tejay Van Garderen would “put minutes into that ride.” It was just over one minute, actually, that Leipheimer put into Zabriskie’s ride, and less than one second that separated first-place finisher Leipheimer from second-place finisher Vande Velde. On an uphill time trial like Vail’s, even guys as good as this prove they’re human. “You have to have the experience and

VAIL — Just a month ago, many of the riders pounding up Vail Pass on Wednesday were top contenders at the Tour de France. Race organizers and fans were all glad to have the worlds’ top racers at the USA Pro Cycling Challenge, but some tour racers admitted that going into the third day of the Colorado Rockies, they’re tired. While the tour riders may be on form, the threeweek long race in July has taken its toll. Some of the top riders in France, such as yellow jersey winner Cadel Evans, second- and third-place riders Andy and Frank Schleck, Ivan Basso and David Zabriskie, seem to be riding more quietly in Colorado. “To finish the tour and do well, you have to be 110 percent,” said Andy Schleck, who finished second in France and currently sits 39th at Colorado. “It’s different if you’re just trying to finish with the peloton. The first few days (of this race) I felt good, but I’m tired mentally. I’m ready to go home.” Since the tour, Schleck said he’s only slept a couple nights in his own bed in Luxembourg. He has spent the past couple of weeks training in Colorado. Levi Leipheimer, who edged out Christian Vande Velde for the time-trial victory on Vail Pass by less than a second, said that the race is lucky to have the top tour contenders competing at all.

American Christian Vande Velde makes the final push up toward the finish line of the Vail pass time trial to take second place in Stage 3 of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge on Thursday in Vail. the tactics to know how to meter yourself,” Leipheimer said. “But even though I held back a little bit in the beginning, I was finished with one (kilometer) to go. I mean, I was absolutely done, but the fans helped me get through and the fact that I knew I had the best split time helped me, but that last (kilometer) really, really hurt. ... It’s what I love to do and it makes me who I am and I wouldn’t trade this job for anything, but man, that hurt.” Vande Velde knew Thursday’s time trial would be the time to take advantage of his abilities, and he tried but came up slightly short of the victory. “I had this stage picked out weeks ago,” he said. “I know this road, just like a lot of people do, and knew it really

suited my characteristics as a bike rider.” Vande Velde, who rode a road bike Thursday while Leipheimer rode a time-trial bike, made up nearly 18 seconds in just the last 11 or so minutes of the time trial. He said he could spend all night going over the details and the “woulda, coulda, shouldas” that put him into second place, but he’s not going to bother. With three tough stages left to go, the focus now turns to Friday. “I knew this race was going to come down to seconds — that’s why I didn’t take the prologue lightly,” Vandevelde said. Time trial, page A34

Tommy Danielson, who also had a strong performance in France, was also racing well in Colorado until he caught a stomach bug after the Gunnison-to-Aspen stage on Tuesday that kept him up all night. “It was such a hard day for me,” said Danielson after the time trial. “I was determined to start — this race is so important to me and the team, so I had to take the start house. I went out there and did the best I could.” Are some riders tired and homesick? Yes. Are they glad to be racing in Colorado? Definitely, some said. “It’s been great and beautiful,” said Danielson. “The crowds were great. It’s been an amazing race and I’m happy to be here, especially after returning home from the Tour.” Jens Voigt said that after a long tour supporting the Schleck brothers, his experience in Colorado has been positive, and he’s been impressed with the level of organization of the race. “The great advantage to having it here is that you don’t have as many big cities, like you do in California,” he said. “There aren’t really any traffic jams. I know it sounds like a small thing, but we love it and like being here.”

Hey

Ever been on the front cover of the Vail Daily?

Conventional wisdom? By Chris Freud CFREUD@VAILDAILY.COM

VAIL— Whatever serves for conventional wisdom when it comes to the USA Pro Cycling Challenge said that whoever was wearing yellow after Thursday’s Stage 3 in Vail, the last of the major climbing, would be the winner of the event. Today’s stage from Avon to Steamboat Springs is relatively flat and certainly so after a time trial up Vail Pass on Thursday. Steamboat Springs to Breckenridge on Saturday has one pass, but again, it’s nothing compared with the haul everyone did Wednesday from Gunnison to Aspen. Sunday’s finale from Golden to Denver isn’t exactly huge on elevation change, so it was thought that we’d have our winner by now, right? “Pretty much everything I’ve read has been completely wrong from day one,” American Christian Vande Velde said after Thursday’s stage in Vail. “I’ve really been taken aback, actually. But that’s all right, especially me being taken off the list.” OK, first off, our bad, Christian. We should have

$ had you among the contenders for the Vail time trial. Second, it seems that riders, fans and media alike are trying to figure out this event as we go. So the yellow jersey is not permanently affixed to Levi Leipheimer, though he wouldn’t mind.

“Now that I’m in this position, it’s different,” he said. “Now I’m on the defensive. I’m not on the offensive. These next three days are daunting for myself and my team. But we’re very motivated. I gave the Stage 4, page A34

Jens Voigt said his strategy for the day was discipline. “I set myself a limit, no matter what anyone else was doing. I took 400 watts as my limit and tried not to go above that,” Voight said. “I went all in at the end and came up with a good time.” For Columbian top climber and uphill time trialist back home, Rafael Infantino said the climb was hard and the racers are very strong. “But it turned out well today,” he said. And the big factor that has interfered with

just about every rider during this race is the altitude. Danny Pate, who finished 74th Thursday and is 34th overall heading into stage 4, said you just can’t breathe up here. “You go to take a breath and it just doesn’t work,” Pate said. “One way to cope with it better is not to have big surges, don’t do big, huge sprints. Riding in one rhythm is a little easier at altitude. If you do big, real hard efforts then you can’t recover from them as well and you just kind of blow up and kind of pass out.” Community Editor Lauren Glendenning can be reached at 970-748-2983 or lglendenning@vaildaily.com.

jersey up once, and I tell you what, I really don’t want to give it up again.” Vande Velde — ahem — is 11 seconds behind Leipheimer with Tejay Van Garderen 17 ticks in the rear. Tom Danielson and George Hincapie are both within one minute. “There’s wind. There’s still some climbing left,” Leipheimer said. “A race can change and turn on its head at any moment. There’s a lot of unknown factors, crashes. We saw a very bad crash (Wednesday), and that was actually on my right shoulder. I was very lucky to miss that. That’s something you can’t control. Anything can happen. You have to keep that in your head and stay alert and don’t make any mistakes.” Riders will take U.S. Highway 6 out of Avon, going west, eventually along the Eagle River before cutting north on state Highway 131. It’s 82.8 miles up to Steamboat, and

there are two climbs that total 5,034 feet, so there could be movement there. There’s also the question of whether sprinters will get to have their day, not to mention how teams will work together. There’s also the factor that with seven days of racing — as opposed to three weeks with the Tour de France — the overall is looking more and more like it will come down to seconds and minutes. “I knew this race was going to come down to seconds, so I didn’t take The Prologue lightly,” Vande Velde said. “That was why I was really bummed in the first stage with Levi going up the road (Crested Butte). Of course, after (Wednesday), I was ready to do horrible things after I missed the boat on the downhill. On the same token, I was unbelievable motivated for today. I couldn’t wait to take the start ramp. I just wanted to rip the pedals off.” Sports Editor Chris Freud can be reached at 970-748-2934 or cfreud@vaildaily.com.

A thin argument ASSOCIATED PRESS

CATASAUQUA, Pa. — Students in a Pennsylvania school district have gotten approval to remain fashion forward. The Morning Call of Allentown reports that Catasauqua Area School District approved a revised dress code this week. It allows students to wear so-called skinny jeans. The tight-fitting jeans had been banned under an earlier dress code. But parents complained they were having a hard time finding jeans that wouldn’t be banned under the district’s definition. Board member Patricia Snyder tells The Morning Call the district was trying to prevent students from wearing suggestive clothing. But ultimately the district determined jeans could be skinny but still appropriate. The board also gave in to requests to back off a ban on hooded sweat shirts. Low-cut tops, leggings and ripped pants are still barred.

Jonny Mogambo to perform free show tonight After riding a circus elephant into a party in Wisconsin this summer, local musician Jonathan Linder, aka Jonny Mogambo, got to check something off his bucket list. “The guy throwing the party was on the board of the circus that travels in that area,” Mogambo said. “He had the whole circus act entertain his 500 guests while they were eating. Afterwards he was drinking and dancing with me. So, as the circus arrived, he asked me if I wanted to ride the elephant, and I said, ‘Hell yeah.’ Who wouldn’t?” There’s a good chance the photo might grace the cover of Mogambo’s next album, he said. The Vail Daily caught up with Mogambo this week to talk about his whirlwind summer touring around the United States performing and why he thinks people have stopped getting naked in public. Q: You’ve been touring a lot this summer, right? Where have you been? A: I left on June 8 and played Clarksdale, Miss.; Memphis, Tenn.; Charleston, S.C.; and Jekyll Island, Ga. I was then back in Colorado for two weeks and played gigs in Aspen, Boulder, quite a few at the Glenwood Canyon Resort in No Name, Breckenridge and a few private parties locally here in Vail. I then flew back to Atlanta to play, then up to northern Michigan, then Madison, Wis., back to Colorado, then back to northern Michigan for a few sailing-festival dates, then back to Colorado. Q: How has the tour gone? A: The touring has been a blast. It

was the first time I took my whole family with me, and it was great having everyone around to share in the over

SPECIAL TO THE DAILY

Local musician Jonny Mogambo, aka Jonathan Linder, got a chance to make a grand entrance at a gig in Madison, Wis., earlier this summer. 7,000 miles we put in on the road this summer. I made my 11-year-old son share the driving — just kidding. Q: What is the current lineup for the band? A: The lineup of the band is the same that it has been for a few years, me on guitar and vocals, Andrew Vogt on saxophone, Dan Schwindt on bass and Kyle Comerford on drums. If people saw us open up for Buckwheat Zydeco for CarniVail or open up for the Greyboy Allstars for Spring Back to Vail, that is the band you will see Friday. Q: The Avondale show is one of the few public shows of the summer season. What can fans expect from the show? A: You can expect some good, solid, original jams from any of our six original CDs we have out and some crowd cover favorites. We tend to warm it up first with some instrumentals and good vibe music and then get the booty shaking going later on. Q: What’s new in your world? A: I have been writing a lot of new

material for a new CD that we are going to put out in the next year. It’s always fun to get back into songwriting mode, and summer seems to always provide a lot of good material.

We also added some new players to our big eight-piece lineup that we use for a lot of private parties. Gayer Mayer, who plays trombone with Big Head Todd, joined our horn section for some gigs, as did Mark Dorn on trumpet, who is head of the brass department at University of Northern Colorado. A jazz and soul singer on the Denver scene named Ayo Awosika is singing with us, too. Q: What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever seen at a wedding? A: That would be Vince Herman from Leftover Salmon running around naked, tackling the bride. Keep in mind, this is in the days that no one cared about anything but having fun. There was no Internet or cell phones, so nobody could capture this for the whole world to see, which is a good thing. I think that’s why you see less people getting naked in public these days. It’s definitely why I quit. Q: And the craziest thing you’ve done at a wedding you performed at? A: The craziest thing I have done at a wedding — not including the previous answer with me instead of Vince; that would be self-incriminating, and of course after being egged on by the bride and groom — is I was hoisted on the best man’s shoulders while playing a guitar solo and he climbed on the mantel above the fire and then we fell back into the crowd. Thankfully everyone caught us and we kept on rocking. This, of course, was earlier in my life when I was indestructible and made of rubber. Remember — never let the truth ruin a good story.

Boom Fest comes to State Bridge EOTO headlines Saturday night with Papadosio, Octopus Nebula and others Daily staff report NEWSROOM@VAILDAILY.COM

BOND — The summer isn’t over yet at State Bridge.

The music starts at 5 p.m. Saturday and there will be a decompression party starting at 11 a.m. on Sunday with Bluegrass and Bloodys, followed by Tatanka at 4 p.m. EOTO creates dubstep from the ground up using only real instruments and their sonic wizardry. The band will headline Saturday night. With no preprogrammed loops or heavy samples snatched from other producers, the duo brings dubstep to life in real time, pushing the movement into unexplored territories. Papadosio will also perform Saturday night. The four-piece band’s music has evolved from a rock/jam background to today’s electronicspiced jam. This is a band that thrives

Radio Free Minturn, broadcasting at 107.9 FM in the Vail Valley and streaming worldwide at www.minturnradio.org, has been a part of the Vail Valley community since 1998 when it began as a “pirate” radio station in Minturn. Thanks to the dedication and support of many local individuals and businesses, Radio Free Minturn is celebrating its fifth legal year of broadcast. The station is run by an all-volunteer staff and is supported financially by listeners. “It’s wonderful to see how much the station has grown in the past several years,” DJ Kelsey Ashton said. “I initially went into the studio to record a public service announcement for another local organization and was

I haven’t looked back since joining the station and really love the dedication shown by our team of volunteers.” The programming on Radio Free Minturn is locally produced and commercial free. The variety of musical genres is a clear representation of the eclectic mix of the DJs’ personalities and tastes, spanning classic rock to indie, electronic, world music, reggae and more. “I recall tuning into 107.9 FM shortly after moving to the area and thinking it was a different station each time,” said Dave Eickholt, president of Radio Free Minturn’s board of directors. “The eclectic mix of programming is very unique to Radio Free Minturn, and it’s something our listening community enjoys.” The event is free, but donations are

VAIL — The Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival recently completed its summer Music Matters education programs with a performance of the Very Young Composers Program, which offers children ages 9 through 12 the opportunity to study the art of music composition through stories, picture scores and collaboration with peers. The program is a partnership with the New York Philharmonic and the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival. The Vail program is sponsored by the Joyce and Bernard West family. “It is truly an enriching experience for these young musicians and composers,” said Liz Campbell, Bravo!’s director of education and community outreach. This summer, 12 children participated in the Young Composers Program. Several of the children have participated in the program since its inception. The festival provides the program free to participants through the Music Matters Education Outreach program. Many parents of the program enroll their children because they say it spurs creativity and helps them in their academics. “He likes to be creative now,” said Arzu Basyildiz, the mother of a child in the program. “My son Bora now trusts himself that he can create beautiful music. He sits down in front of the

He started paying attention to the old cartoons’ background music to see what kind of music shows which emotion and which instrument shows it better.” The New York Philharmonic’s young composers advocate Jon Deak brought the program back to Vail this summer for its fourth consecutive year. Deak works with the participants of the program for several months before their compositions are performed in Vail. In June, children were introduced to the story of taking a journey from “Instrument Village” to “Soprano

Peak.” They created their musical compositions by using pictures and learning about the different musical instrumentations. The children met at the Bravo! office and worked with Deak through Skype classes. In late July, during the New York Philharmonic’s residency with Bravo!, Deak met with the children to work on the compositions. After a few rehearsals, several professional musicians from the New York Philharmonic performed the compositions in two community performances at the Vail Young composers, page B14

MUSHROOM FESTIVAL

Mycophobia mission

FROM PAGE B1

Evans says his mission is to stamp out mycophobia — the fear of mushrooms — across America. That may be easier said than done. In mainstream America, collecting mushrooms in the wild can sound like a dicey proposition. To wit, recently the “Popular Searches” section on MSN.com showed a photo of mushrooms under the heading “Foods that can kill you.” But for folks such as Evans, the dangers associated with wild mushroom collection can be easily avoided with a bit of education. That’s why the Eagle festival places a great emphasis on teaching people what to look for and then helping them learn how to prepare mushrooms correctly. Evans, a former restaurateur himself, says he loves cooking mushrooms as much as he loves finding them, so the weekend’s combination of foragers and foodies should be a winning mix.

medicine at the Riverwalk Natural Health Clinic and Natural Pharmacy LLC in Edwards, which she founded 13 years ago. Nate McMullen of Paradigms Restaurant and Ryan Murray of Red Canyon Cafe will share their mushroom culinary skills, and all participants will team up for foraging and round-up events. “You have had a pretty good mushroom season there in Colorado,” said Montana resident Evans. However, he noted that while moisture and temperature will determine the types of mushrooms that thrive in any given season, there are always varieties of fungi to be found. “Organisms such as mushrooms and trees have been adapting for years. They are pretty well prepared for whatever Mother Nature throws at them,” Evans said.

Pinning down a single Peruvian culinary style is akin to lumping together all Americans under one political ideal. It might work from a distance, but once you make eye contact, it’s all over. Chances are, a country that claims more than 400 varieties of potatoes and at least 2,000 fish swimming in local waters probably has a culinary trick or two up its collective sleeve. But with such far-reaching regions as the rugged Andes mountain range, the hot jungles and the long and sweeping coastline, there’s no single style that unifies the food scene. The ingredients are just too different. But there is a unifying approach: Use what you have, and make it good.

on the scene, they’re joining foodmagazine editors and rising-star chefs the world over who say Peruvian food is the next big thing. “There are so many different ethnicities in Peru,” Ortega said. “But there’s also such different weather, different geography. You’ve got the high Andean potatoes and corn but also the jungles, so lots of tropical fruits and produce. And then there’s the ocean. It’s one of the richest waters, with good-quality seafood that’s good to be eaten raw.” Those local products were further diversified by an influx of both immigrants and slaves. People poured in from China, Japan and Europe. “In Peru, they didn’t eradicate the native population,” Ortega said. “That’s rare in Latin America.” But they did start to mix and match their culinary traditions. And everybody has to eat.

largest Japanese expat communities in the world. Due to that, and the cold waters that offer up a constant supply of seafood, there’s an emphasis on sushi-style foods. But they also revere the chili — the Aji Amarillo in particular. The potato culture is unmatched, and the diversity of corn is almost as astonishing as Costa Rica’s. Quinoa, the “mother grain,” originated in Peru. It’s almost an embarrassment of riches. Peruvian ceviche is one of Sur Catering’s signature dishes. Raw fish and seafood are mixed with citrus juice, the acids of which seem to cook the fish. “In a way, I don’t know what’s better than ceviche,” Strazan said. “It’s a fresh product. It retains its nutrients. If you can master its properties, you’ll become addicted.” So whether it’s scallops, shrimp or snapper, they always have ceviche. Another mix-and-match Peruvian staple is causa. Think you’re not a fan of cold potato? Think again. Using thickly mashed potatoes as a vessel — no dairy, but plenty of mild, flavor-rich chilis — Ortega layers flavors. “You can add whatever you want,” Ortega said. “But generally avocado,

Going south with Sur Sur Catering is what it sounds like: a catering company that provides fullservice party customization with Peruvian food and service. But also it has a booth at the Minturn Market every Saturday. They dish up a varied selection of Peruvian cuisine, an attempt to develop a Peruvian culinary vocabulary for Vail Valley residents and visitors. Lima, Peru, lays claim to one of the

veggies, chili paste and garlic paste to give it more flavors and then crab or chicken, maybe scallions, different sauces and garnishes.” Gluten- and dairy-free, causas make an easy appetizer for a broad spectrum of eaters and are adaptable to any allergies or preferences. As for the sushi component to the cuisine, Ortega’s decade-plus behind local sushi bars comes in handy. “Tirritos is Peruvian sashimi,” Ortega said. “That’s going to be a good niche for us. It’s like doing sushi, but instead of using soy sauce as the main sauce, you can have chilis and creams and chili pastes.” They also serve up blended drinks, citrus-rich and full of life. Beverages are Strazan’s purview. He brings the same attention to them as Ortega does to his food. He also organizes the “feel” of the parties they cater thanks to 15 years of experience as a front-ofthe-house server at the Golden Eagle in Beaver Creek. Kober, capitalizing on four years as a wedding planner, brings a big-picture calm to Sur’s larger shindigs. “What we’re trying to do is contribute to the culinary landscape of the valley by bringing something new,” Strazan said. “But we know how the valley has evolved in the past 15 years because we’ve been here. We’ve evolved with it.” Colorado might be known for lamb and trout, but Sur Catering thinks it’s ready for something else. Next stop: Peru.

Fernando Palomo didn’t set out to be an artist. “I wanted to be welterweight champion of the world. Or the bravest matador alive. A doctor, in other words,” Palomo told the Vail Daily in a previous interview. But, he’s an artist, and a dandy one. Palomo’s artwork is now Vail’s official poster for the local leg of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge. The stage race rolls through Avon today. Inspiration comes from travel, he said, like the bikes and bicyclists he’s depicting. He’s been all over Europe and Asia, and of course the U.S. “I’m inspired by my surroundings most of the time. I can be in any mood to create whatever comes to mind,” he said. What came to mind was this poster for the Vail stage of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge. It’s in keeping

He attended The Art Institute of Dallas. After college, he designed and decorated music venues and clubs, creating large-scale paintings and murals with themes such as “Havana Cuba,” “Western” and “Modern Rock.” These days he teaches, he paints, he enjoys life and encourages others SPECIAL TO THE DAILY to do the same. “Each student has unique experiLocal artist Fernando Palomo created the poster for the Vail stage ences and interests.

The evening will feature Tuscan wines and cheeses from this food paradise along with appetizers from local chef Michelle Pirozzi, of Wild Organics catering. Dogma Athletica owner Rod Connolly and Velo Classic Tours owner Peter Easton will be on hand for a discussion on the trip and to answer any questions. “We are excited to work with Velo Classic on this event,” Connolly said. “We are creating a trip that combines all the best aspects of a dream cycling vacation. The riding in Tuscany is unbelievable. It sounds cliche, but it truly is like riding through a postcard every day.” The trip will be based out of a Tuscan villa so that cyclists can ride from the property without having to pack up and move multiple times. Connolly said they will hand-pick routes that feature the best riding, nicest roads and least traffic. Pirozzi will be a part of the trip to help prepare the freshest local harvest

meals. She said her goal is to create a menu that will feature both the tastes of Italian cooking and the healthy diet that will keep cyclists feeling ready to ride. “Tuscany is the heart of the farm-totable experience,” Pirozzi said. “We are able to get the freshest raw ingredients from the market and farms each day to create healthy and delicious meals to complement the experience. Will will also teach guests how they can create similar types of meals when they return home. We will prepare good, clean food that complements their lifestyle and tastes unbelievable.” Trip participants also will receive a detailed training and preparation plan by Dogma Athletica staff. The training will include group rides prior to the trip. Connolly said the trip will be highly personalized and invited anyone interested in such an experience, or anyone who would like to enjoy an evening among cyclists, to attend the event.

children. Indeed, many parents of the program said this program teaches their children that they can be professional musicians. “The program allows children to experience music in a whole new way. Instead of passively listening, they get to control and interact with their musical ideas. Additionally, the kids get to work with professional musi-

cians and feel a personal connection with the New York Philharmonic,” said Ann Constien, the mother of two participants in the program. This fall, Bravo! continues its Music Matters programs with its after-school piano program. The Young Composers program will continue in the summer of 2012. For information on enrolling in either program, call 970827-4302.

CAPITOL THEATRE “CRAZY, STUPID, LOVE” At 40-something, straightlaced Cal Weaver (Steve Carell) is living the dream — good job, nice house, great kids and marriage to his high school sweetheart. But when Cal learns that his wife, Emily (Julianne Moore), has cheated on him and wants a divorce, his “perfect” life quickly unravels. Worse, in today’s single world, Cal, who hasn’t dated in decades, stands out as the epitome of unsmooth. Now spending his free evenings sulking alone at a local bar, the hapless Cal is taken on as wingman and protege to handsome, 30something player Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling).

But in reality, trying to mother Rebecca (Rowan Blanchard) and Cecil (Mason Cook), who clearly don’t want her around, is her toughest challenge yet. Also, her husband, Wilbur (Joel McHale), wouldn’t know a spy if he lived with one which is exactly the case - Marissa’s a retired secret agent. (1:35) PG.

LAST WORD IN ASTROLOGY

By Eugenia Last

DEAR ABBY

By Abigail Van Buren

HOT CAR AND FROZEN CHICKEN ARE A DANGEROUS COMBINATION DEAR ABBY: My husband purchased a bag of individually wrapped frozen chicken breasts during his lunch break. After work, we took our kids to a concert and didn't return home until 8 p.m. The bag of chicken was in his trunk for seven hours on a hot summer day. My husband thought it was OK to refreeze the meat and feed this to our kids, ages 6 and 2. I adamantly disagreed. What are your thoughts? We've had this argument before. -- NO WAY! IN SAN JOSE DEAR NO WAY!: Your husband is SERIOUSLY off base. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, "cold food" -- such as chicken, fish, raw meat -- should be purchased just before leaving the market and the shopper should plan to drive directly home. Always refrigerate perishable food within two hours, and when the temperature is above 90 degrees Fahrenheit, it should be refrigerated within one hour! Food left in the car for the length of time your husband did is no longer fit for human consumption and could have made your children seriously ill. Readers, for the answers to food safety questions, the USDA can be contacted on the Internet at AskKaren.gov. Submit a question there and it will be answered. The USDA also has a Meat and Poultry Hotline, (888) 674-6854, which is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. DEAR ABBY: My ex-husband and I divorced seven CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Keke Palmer, 18; Macaulay Culkin, 31; Chris Pine, 31; Melissa McCarthy, 41. Happy Birthday: Offering to help others will bring you high returns this year. Do your best to spread your ideas and to be proactive. Love is highlighted, and spending time nurturing your relationships with your friends, a lover or your family will pay off. A change of scenery will do you good, but don't make an impulsive move. Welldesigned plans will lead to greater prosperity. Your numbers are 5, 14, 18, 26, 28, 35, 44. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Plan to socialize with friends or colleagues. Problems at home will escalate if you don't include family in your plans or if you try to make personal changes related to your living arrangements. Don't limit what you can do because someone gives you a hard time. 5 stars TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Let your emotions lead the way. It will help you get past a festering problem. Once you share your thoughts and your desires, you will be able to move forward. Love and romance are highlighted, and personal changes can be made that will alter

years ago. He has remarried, and I also recently married again. He is still bitter toward me. His emotional abuse was partly to blame for our split, although I was not entirely without fault. I made mistakes, too, which I regret. Two of my children hold me responsible for the divorce and continually throw my mistakes back in my face. I walk on eggshells around them. I have apologized repeatedly and asked their forgiveness. I'm afraid of losing contact with my grandchildren every time one of my kids becomes upset about the past. I have been to counseling, but was told I just have to be happy with me. Is there a way my children can finally forgive me for the past? I'm not a bad person, just a flawed one. -- HUMAN IN ONTARIO, CANADA DEAR HUMAN: We're all flawed, including your children. If they are determined that blame for the divorce falls solely on you, while absolving your emotionally abusive husband, nothing you or I can do will change their minds. You have paid your therapist good money for the sensible advice you received, so please heed it. The longer you continue to walk on eggshells and tolerate the treatment you are receiving, the longer it will continue. Concentrate on your own life, and far more happiness will result than what you're experiencing now. DEAR ABBY: Many letters you print come from

your future. 2 stars GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Invest in you. A financial gain is apparent due to a settlement, reimbursement, winning or rebate. Consider what you have to offer and how you can turn that asset into a moneymaking endeavor. 4 stars CANCER (June 21-July 22): Look at your situation honestly. You stand to benefit if you are true to yourself and refuse to let anyone take advantage of you. Love is highlighted if you are open to someone making an advance. 3 stars LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Look at the practical aspects of a situation that can affect your professional or personal future. Knowing what you want so that you can act quickly will be half the battle. Don't limit your chance to get ahead because you fear how someone will respond to your decision. 3 stars VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Helping others will make you feel good and bring surprising rewards. Offering what you can in a practical way will make an impression on someone special. Romance is highlighted. 4 stars LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Before you become upset over

women who seem shocked because they've ended up with men who have little or no character. However, I have never dated a man who could hide his true colors longer than six months. You often advise these women to seek counseling or an attorney, but for the millions of women who haven't yet made these mistakes, how about a shoutout for prevention? Amazingly, not getting legally attached and not allowing yourself to become pregnant by a man you've known only a few weeks isn't considered common sense anymore. The heart is ungovernable, but people do have absolute control over using birth control and getting married. What percentage of women's problems do you think could be avoided if, for the first year of dating someone, they used birth control 100 percent of the time and didn't rush to get married? -- PERPLEXED IN PEORIA DEAR PERPLEXED: I'd say about 50 percent -- but I may be underestimating by a long shot.

nothing, give change a chance. There are profits to be made if you lend a helping hand or get involved in a project that promises growth and a better future. Love and romance are featured late in the day. 2 stars SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Less talk and more action will bring better results. A partnership with someone special has far more to offer than you realize. Don't be too proud to accept help or suggestions. You can take control and still be gracious. 5 stars SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Good ideas will bring unexpected profits that will allow you to make changes to your home and family. Don't let a past partner cost you emotionally or financially. Stick to the truth and take care of any loose ends that could be used against you. 5 stars CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your practical and subtle way of dealing with money matters will enable you to get ahead. Settlements and contracts should be put to rest. Don't be afraid to apply a little pressure if necessary. 3 stars AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Rely on your knowledge and experi-

ence to help you when dealing with others. You can develop a good working relationship with someone as long as you don't take on or promise too much. Handle people the way you want to be treated and you will be successful. 3 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Keep everything out in the open and you will be successful. Once you have everyone on the same page, you can include your own needs and finish what you start. An unusual connection will motivate you. 3 stars Birthday Baby: You are patient, protective, proactive, practical and perfectionistic.
