Home Cam come home
Dan and Debbie Smith from St. Louis were in Vail for a around the end of last month, and they lost their Sony Handycam. It’s a video camera, and they think they lost it on the bridge in Vail’s Donovan Park. Among other things, the tape inside chronicled their son’s 16 birthday. If you find it, call 314-267-3160, or the Vail Police Department and the Vail Cascade also have all the info.Another satisfied customerYoung Amanda’s bunny wandered away during the waning moments of the Eagle County Fair, and her distraught mom called Town Talk Towers. As it turns out, the bunny was hopping about the fairgrounds and a dutiful youngster picked it up and took it home to Avon, where affection ensued. They read about the wayward bunny in this very column and called Amanda. The bunny is back home. Like the true humanitarians the rescuers are, they refused the reward. Instead, they get good karma and stars in their crowns.
