Vail Daily Editorial BoardVail CO, Colorado

Send your hit or miss to Opinion Editor Tamara Miller at tmiller@vaildaily.com.Miss: To the Avon Town Council for canceling the bus route from Buffalo Ridge to Wal-Mart. The Wal-Mart stop was the most popular in Avon, and many Buffalo Ridge residents depend on the service to get to work. The council may have won their war with Traer Creek developer, Magnus Lindholm, but the only losers in this deal are Avon residents. Hit: To Buffalo Ridge residents and other Avon residents for their willingness to fight for the bus stop. A few of the Buffalo Ridge complex residents many of whom work multiple jobs, by the way managed to make it to Tuesday nights Avon Town Council meeting to plead their case. Miss: To Edwards and Vail for scoring poorly on our very unofficial manners test. The test demonstrated how local residents would react when a stranger dropped a stack of papers or needed help getting a door open. All joking aside, its a little sad when local residents cant be bothered to help each other out. Hit: To Eagle, for scoring the best on the Dailys unofficial manners test. Avon and Minturn did fairly well, too. Miss: To those automated calls being used by both sides in the home rule election. Interrupting us during dinner time with an annoying campaign call isnt going to influence our vote. It will make us hang up the phone, though. Hit: To David Reilly, a 5-year-old Edwards resident and the world-champion cup stacker in his age division. How many local residents can say they are a world champion of anything, let alone a 5-year-old?
