Mountain School home tour is Sunday

“Minimum Wage” madness

The world premiere of film “Minimum Wage,” written and directed by local film stud Jonathan Bricklin, is 3:30 p.m. Saturday at the Vilar Center in Beaver Creek. It’s $5 to get in: A small price to pay for witnessing the dawn of a classic. Go there. Be entertained.

Raise your Yee-Haw factor

The Colorado Pro Rodeo Association Finals Rodeo is Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Eagle County Fairgrounds. We’re talkin’ Honest-to-Stetson cowboys riding Honest-to-Stetson creatures who are wishing them to do those cowboys great bodily harm. Tickets are $5 for adults and $2 for kids. Our calculator tells us that it’s not only less expensive than a movie, it’s less expensive than the popcorn. Friday’s rodeo starts at 7 p.m, Saturday and Sunday are at 1 p.m. For more info call 328-3646.

After school martial arts

Your children can learn how to peacefully break a piano, while learning the glories of inner peace and discipline, which is a pretty good combination. The School of Martial Arts is running after school classes for Eagle County students, as well as adults, beginning Sept. 19. Jason Field and Kim Christobal, who are both wonderful people your children should emulate in most cases, are running the program. Classes run through December and cost $120. Spots are filling up fast. Call 471-0909.

BMHS ’92, we’re lookin’ for you

The Battle Mountain High School class of 1992 will be having their 10 year reunion on Saturday. According to Birgit Krebs-Roesink, libations will be consumed, lies will be told and giggling will ensue. The women who were beautiful in ’92 are still beautiful, except now you can ask them out. The reunion starts with a school tour at 3:30 p.m., then dinner at the Kaltenberg Bewery at 6:30 p.m. All former students should make reservations directly with the Kaltenberg.

Kitty takes to the trees

Char, the Minor Deity of Eagle Valley Humane Society fame, wandered by Town Talk Towers, brightening up the joint and informing the universe that they’re looking for the owners of a big Russian blue cat (solid dark gray to us regular people). It seems the kitty is stuck about 60 feet up a tree in East Vail, and won’t come down. The cat is wearing a collar and seems to like humans. If it’s yours, go get it. Call Char at 328-PETS, or 280-5738. Since the tree grew out over the Gore Creek and a bunch of boulders, and since a fire chief in Michigan died trying to get a cat down, don’t even think about calling the fire department.

Be a flag footballer

The Vail Rec District’s Heather is rolling out the red carpet for one more flag football team. According to Heather, they’re looking for one more happy band of fit young men in tight clothing to play in this fall’s league. The season starts Sunday and runs through Oct. 27. Call Heather at 476-2280.
