Pro extreme skier Billy Poole killed during filming in Big Cottonwood Canyon

Professional extreme skier Billy Poole died this afternoon after taking a fall while filming in Big Cottonwood Canyon between Solitude and Brighton ski resorts.

Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office spokesman Paul Jaroscak said the 28-year-old died around 1:30 p.m. at University Hospital. Poole was filming a jump, had a bad landing, and possibly hit some rocks, Jaroscak said. Earlier reports of an avalanche in the area were false, he said.

Poole was filming in the area with Boulder, Colo.-based Warren Miller Entertainment. A spokesman reached at the company's corporate headquarters said the company is still trying to learn details about the accident and will release a statement later today.

Poole was one of dozens of skiers sponsored by Black Diamond, a ski and climbing equipment distributor in Salt Lake City. The company's Web site includes an interview with Poole about a trip to Argentina, where he skied and filmed over the summer.

Penn Newhard, a public relations specialist for Backbone Media, which represents Black Diamond, called Poole "a hard working" athlete who was well-liked on the ski circuit.

"He was highly regarded as an up and coming and talented young athlete," said Newhard, noting Poole was a "super personable young man." Poole was making a name for himself on the slopes and was a positive ambassador for Utah's ski scene, said Nathan Rafferty, president of Ski Utah --the state's ski and snowboard association.

"It's really sad news," Rafferty said. "He was a phenomenal athlete and a great representative of Utah's ski community."

Kate Voegele takes her act to "One Tree Hill"

Telling off the former Mr. Britney Spears was all in a day's work for Kate Voegele, a singer-songwriter turned actress. The Bay Village native is set to appear in six episodes of "One Tree Hill," starting Tuesday night.

"I'm so excited to see where it takes me," Voegele said of the popular teen-drama series, which began its fifth season this month on the CW network.

She plays Mia, a young musician in a hard-rocking band. The group is led by Jason, a tattoo-covered jerk portrayed by guest star Kevin Federline, ex-husband of Spears.

In tonight's episode -- spoiler alert! -- Jason gets fired during a recording session. He expects the rest of the band to follow him out the door.

"I think I'm gonna stay," Mia says.

"You're an idiot," Jason tells her.

"Don't call me an idiot," Mia says. "And stop playing the ballads. Those are mine."

It was a different story off-camera, where Federline reportedly was a perfect gentleman.

"He was cool," Voegele said by phone last week from a Starbucks in Oxford, Ohio, where she was visiting college pals.

Federline "was very professional," said Voegele, 21. "He was there to work and he did a great job."

After graduating in 2005 from Bay High School (where the extent of her acting experience was a chorus role in a production of "Once Upon a Mattress"), Voegele went to Miami University to study art. She dropped out after her sophomore year to focus on her music, an inviting blend of rock, pop and folk, layered with openhearted musings on love and life.

Her debut album, "Don't Look Away," came out in May on MySpace Records. The label, a subsidiary of the online social network, is re-releasing the album today, in an effort to capitalize on Voegele's "One Tree Hill" exposure.

The closing track, "Kindly Unspoken," is prominently featured in tonight's episode. The series will showcase other tunes from Voegele's album in the weeks ahead.

"It's a great opportunity," said J Scavo, general manager of MySpace Records. "It's going to bring her farther than she ever could've gotten on her own."

Do the math. "Don't Look Away" has sold 8,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan -- a modest sum.

Now factor in the multitude of potential fans who are glued to their TV sets for "One Tree Hill." The series draws 4 million viewers weekly, mostly females between the ages of 12 and 35, said creator and executive producer Mark Schwahn.

He could be Voegele's No. 1 admirer, too.

"When she opens her mouth and sings, you realize this is exactly what this person was put on the earth to do," Schwahn said. "I hope the show does everything it can for her, because she's worthy of it."

She landed the "One Tree Hill" part after her manager got Voegele into a casting call in August.

Was she familiar with the show?

"Yeah, definitely," Voegele said. "My little sister is just obsessed with it."

A couple of Grammy winners also tried out for the role, Schwahn said. He declined to name the competition.

"Fortunately, there was a girl from Bay Village who fit the bill," said Schwahn, who hasn't ruled out bringing Mia back to "One Tree Hill" in the future.

The series has done wonders for other musicians, including Gavin DeGraw. Sales of his album skyrocketed after one of his tunes, "I Don't Want to Be," became the "One Tree Hill" theme song.

Voegele's character eventually comes into her own, although Mia is a shrinking violet when we first meet her.

"I'm a really loud, outgoing person, so that was really totally the opposite of my personal characteristics, but it was really cool because I was that girl once," Voegele said. "I was 15 and I had just stared playing guitar. I was like, 'I don't want anyone to know that I write songs.' When I was in high school, it was a big deal. I was like, 'Oh my God -- people are going to think I'm the weird girl with the guitar.' "

Voegele filmed her scenes last fall on location in Wilmington, N.C. On weekends, she would duck out to go on tour.

"It was the craziest couple of months of my life, but in the best way," she said.

With any luck, the craziness is just beginning. On the heels of the "One Tree Hill" blitz, MySpace Records plans to start pushing Voegele's effervescent single "Only Fooling Myself" next month, targeting radio stations with "hot adult contemporary" formats.

"I'd love to put her on a nationwide headlining tour in April or May, if everything is lining up properly," Scavo said.

Voegele has a gig aboard a cruise ship this week. She wasn't even sure if she would be able to watch her "One Tree Hill" debut.

"I'm going to be somewhere in the middle of the Caribbean," she said. "Hopefully we'll get cable or something out there."

Beth Modica

Mom Charged with Sex,
Booze and Drugs

Beth Modica, 44, was a former Prosecutor and PTA president. She has four children and her husband is the Spring Valley Police Chief. She now finds herself on the other side of the law. Beth Modica was indicted on 35 counts alleging statutory rape, criminal sex acts, sex abuse and endangering children.

The Rockland County District Attorney, Thomas Zugibe requested that bail be set at $25,000 cash or $50,000 bond. Beth Modica’s attorney, Gerard Damianireleased without bail. He cited Modica’s ties to the community. Damiani said Modica’s character and morality had never been questioned before the current charges were filed. County Court Judge Catherine Bartlett was not impressed; she set Beth Modica’s bail at $75,000 cash or bond. She also issued orders of protection for the 2 boys involved. Damiani objected that the judge had set the bail higher than the DA had requested. asked for her to be

“Your honor,” he said, “The DA recommended bail at $25,000.”

County Court Judge Catherine Bartlett, noting the seriousness of the charges, defended her decision by saying:

“I heard it. These are serious charges involving children in her community,”

The charges are indeed quite serious. They could land Beth Modica in prison for up to 4 years:

She was charged with 5 felonies: 1 count of third-degree rape; and 4 counts of third-degree criminal sexual assault. She also faces 30 misdemeanor charges: 4 counts of third-degree sexual abuse and 26 counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

Ramapo Police Chief Peter Brower said the investigation began Dec. 31, when his department received a complaint in the mail. He said the students involved go to Suffern High School, which is also attended by Beth Modica’s 16-year-old son.

Between July 20 and 22, Beth Modica is accused of having had intercourse with a 16-year-old and oral sex with a 15-year-old (friends of her son) in her home. She is alleged to have served alcohol to both of them. On other dates during a two-month period, Modica is accused of having had oral sex with the two boys in cars or at their homes, while drinking alcohol or smoking marijuana with them. It is also alleged that on several occasions she served and shared alcohol and marijuana with “many” other teens from Suffern High School at her Sloatsburg home or in her car.

Rockland County DA Thomas Zugibe took pains to state that Beth Modica’s husband, Spring Valley Police Chief Paul Modica was in no way connected to any of the charges, saying he was “not implicated whatsoever” and had no knowledge of any of the incidents. The couple are now separated. Paul Modica has taken custody of their children. Beth has moved out of their house and has gone to live with her mother. Paul Modica’s lawyer, John Edwards, said:

“Paul’s sole interest at this point is protecting his children. … He’s trying to make sure the kids are impacted as little as possible.”

Lindsay Lohan and Sandler among Golden Raspberry Award Nominees

Two New York firemen posing as a gay couple, psychically linked identical twins and a mild-mannered man dominated by his latex-wearing obese wife are all contenders this year for the worst screen couples in Hollywood.

Among the nominations announced for the 28th annual Golden Raspberry awards, which celebrate the worst in film-making, are Adam Sandler, Lindsay Lohan and Eddie Murphy for their respective work in I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry, I Know Who Killed Me and Norbit.

I Know Who Killed Me received a total of nine nominations by the Razzies - worst screen couple, picture, horror movie, screenplay, director, remake/rip-off, supporting actress and two nods for worst actress - trailed by Norbit and I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry, which both received eight.

It's a double-whammy for Lohan and Murphy, who play multiple roles in their cinematic fiascoes and were nominated opposite themselves in the worst screen couple category.

I Know Who Killed Me, a teen thriller in which Lohan plays psychically connected twins, "is a Lindsay Lohan 'vehicle' that proved as dangerous for its star as any car she ever ran off the road," said John Wilson, who heads the group that spoofs the Oscars by celebrating the year's worst films.

Norbit garnered Murphy five nods for what Wilson described as a "latex-laden, nearly laugh-free 'comedy.'"

In that film, Murphy plays Norbit, as well as his adopted Asian father and hugely obese girlfriend.

Rounding out the list is I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry, in which Sandler and co-star Kevin James claim to be domestic partners in order to receive medical benefits, a comedy Wilson describes as a "gag-inducing 'gay romp.'"

The worst film category also includes Bratz, based on the popular toy dolls - the four lead actresses were all named in the worst actress category in a "four-for-one deal" - and Daddy Day Camp," starring Oscar winner Cuba Gooding Jr.

The worst actor category also includes Nicolas Cage for his turns in Ghost Rider, National Treasure: Book of Secrets and Next and Jim Carrey for The Number 23.

Others nominated for worst actresses include Diane Keaton in Because I Said So, Jessica Alba in Awake, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer and Good Luck, Chuck.


Heath's Antidepressants and Ambien

The three bottles of prescription pills found in Heath Ledger's apartment contained antidepressants and Ambien, a police source tells us. The actor, who was found dead of an apparent overdose this afternoon, had spoken in the past about having trouble sleeping, but one of his friends tells, that the 28-year-old was also battling depression.

"I was hearing that he was depressed," says actor Jonathan Zarin, who met Heath through mutual friends. "I'm sure he must have been in a really bad place. I'd been hearing that for a while."

When asked about the rumors currently circulating that Heath had a drug problem, Zarin responded, "Everyone in Hollywood experiments with drugs."

Zarin said he'd miss his pal. "He was an inspiration to me as an actor. He gave me really good advice on acting. We'd go drinking together and we'd have a really good time."

Police sources tell that Heath's apartment looked "like a temporary crash pad." They say the bed that he was found dead in was just a mattress on the floor with plain white sheets, and the apartment wasn't decorated.Sources add that Michelle Williams, Heath's ex girlfriend, and the mother of his daughter, Matilda, 2, is headed back to the States from Europe, where she was shooting a film.

While there were rumors earlier this evening that Heath's apartment belonged to Mary-Kate Olsen, a police insider tells that the Mart-Kate connection involved the masseuse who found Heath unconscious in his bed. The masseuse, who also works with Mary-Kate, called the actress and asked her what to do. She was promptly told by Mary-Kate to call the police.
