Vail Daily letter: Marriott revisited

January 19, 2017 — The Jan. 17 evening session of the Vail Town Council tackled the proposed Marriott combination hotel and attached 96 EHU (employee housing units — a name I hate) apartments.

Vail Daily letter: Not very gracious

January 19, 2017 — (Wednesday’s) Vail Daily front page features the announcement of Vail native Mike Johnston’s run to be governor — Colorado’s top elected official.

Vail Daily letter: Face the fear

January 18, 2017 — Fear. It’s perfectly OK to be afraid. Address fear anxiety by learning to take possession of it. Learn to accept and even welcome your next panic attack. Don’t hesitate to share the details of those attacks with your faithful loving feline. Allow yourself personal fear […]

Vail Daily letter: Our liberal friends

January 18, 2017 — The “always fair” media is forecasting that hundreds of thousands of people are expected to arrive on Jan. 20 to protest Donald Trump’s inauguration. This is not a novel story since I have read it before; but it seems only to occur when Republican presidents […]

Vail Daily letter: Incomplete article

January 17, 2017 — “If the worst should happen” (Vail Daily, Feb. 17) was an interesting article, but, unfortunately, not complete.

Vail Daily letter: Thanks to Vail Resorts

January 16, 2017 — Last Thursday, the Beaver Creek Resort was fortunate enough to make someone’s dream come true. A 17-year-old lady with a terminal disease requested one wish through the Make a Wish Foundation: to see mountains up close. She was expecting a short ride up the Centennial […]

Vail Daily letter: Make proposal smaller

January 11, 2017 — Our concerns with the Marriott project for Buffehr Creek: The massive size is completely incompatible with the neighborhood. The impact of noise, lights, cars, traffic and especially dogs in Buffehr Creek will change the nature of this quiet neighborhood. Outdoor lighting — more glare (we’ve […]

Vail Daily letter: Support alternative energy

January 3, 2017 — I heard something on the radio today that brought me up short. The speaker said that it seems that to be a good conservative you have to deny climate change. What a bunch of rot. I have to believe that many conservatives in this country […]

Vail Daily letter: Yet another liberal excuse

January 3, 2017 — In the past 1 1/2 months I thought I heard every excuse possible for Hillary Clinton’s failure to win the election. In his latest commentary, Jack Van Ens has invented a new one and it’s a doozy. A religious war between white Catholics and white […]

Vail Daily letter: Headline was wrong

December 22, 2016 — The headline “Islam claims market attack” used for an article in (Wednesday’s) Vail Daily is not only totally wrong but extremely irresponsible.

Vail Daily letter: Where’s the menorah?

December 22, 2016 — Nice to see that the “season of lights for the Jewish faith and Hanukkah” be mentioned in the Vail Daily (Our View, Wednesday). Nice to see the word Hanukkah in print anywhere in the valley. Yes, mazel tov to the Vail Daily for even mentioning […]

Vail Daily letter: Mystified by Van Ens

December 22, 2016 — I continue to be mystified by the Rev. Jack Van Ens. Firstly, I thought there was supposed to be separation of church and state in our country. Like it or not, tax laws prevent clergy from using their tax-exempt pulpit to promote political viewpoints such […]

Vail Daily letter: Hatred of Republicans

December 19, 2016 — Jack Van Ens has found an outlet in the Vail Daily to share his bitter hatred of all things Republican. He has consistently over the years declared that the Bible supports virtually all of his vitriolic attacks on Republicans. This is exactly the same sort […]

Vail Daily letter: Pills should be last resort

December 15, 2016 — Last month, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force — the same body that tells us when to get a colonoscopy, get immunized or have our cholesterol checked — weighed in on preventing heart disease by advising doctors on who should take statin medications (like Lipitor […]
