(Refer to the Wisdom from the Web titled, “Modern thing to do”)

Dear Tom Clancy,

I don’t know how long you have been in town, but Vail Resorts has done a very good job of upgrading the lifts on the mountain.

I am a person that is all for progress, but I also like to ski powder, which is why I am opposed to an additional lift in the Sun Up/Sun Down area. You must love skiing bumps because that is all there will be in that area if an additional lift goes in. And if you love skiing bumps so much, maybe you should move to Winter Park and ski the Mary Jane side of the mountain all day. If you are too lazy to ride a triple chair then don’t ski there, ski in the Lionshead area where everything is groomed. It sounds like you should be skiing there anyway.

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

I would also like to ask Vail Resorts to not put another quad in the Sun Up/Sun Down area. I love skiing and I would like my somewhat secret spots to stay that way. I think that everybody who feels this way should also express these concerns to Vail Resorts. Let’s try to salvage whatever soul this town has left.

Go Huskies!

Soccer fans, parents, teachers, students, and players of all ages crowded into E-Town in Edwards last Wednesday to support the Battle Mountain High Schools Boys Soccer team. There was not an empty chair and the soccer community came out in force to raise funds for a very deserving team and celebrate the success they have achieved.

A big thank you goes out to Kevin Deighan and the entire E-Town staff for allowing the players to take over their restaurant and serve food.

Of course, a huge thanks goes out to all who contributed support through tips. Come out and support the Huskies in their quest to win their playoff games!

And don’t forget to dine at E-town and thank them for being a great sponsor of the local sport scene.

Enough already

If I’m not mistaken, today was Matt Zalaznick’s third column this month on the expansion of his family. Please step in and spare the few of us who don’t care, unless you impale yourself on a turkey baster before you can act. Now that’s humor.
