Go fast, do good
The Battle Mountain Cross Country team is hosting a community 5k
running/walking race to raise funds for its upcoming season. As it turns out, there are about 50 kids associated with the team, and their budget is $300. They really need the money.
The benefit race is at 6 p.m. Sept. 9, following the high school girls and boys race. The race start/finish will be at the Battle Mountain baseball field and will head out around the school and onto the par 3 golf course. It’s $15 per person to run, and $20 if you flake out and don’t run. Think of it as a donation to all of the hard working runners, and how much better behaved they are when they’re exhausted. You may register in advance or at the race. Prices in many different age groups will be awarded. Runners/walkers of all shapes, sizes and abilities are welcome.

Hit and Scum Alert
Lloyd called, and someone sideswiped him. He and the police are looking for a dark green, sloped nose passenger van with some body damage on the right side – especially after it whacked Lloyd’s car. The van had no license plate on the rear. The driver stopped in East Vail to drop off a passenger. Apparently, the van driver was tailgating Lloyd, then sideswiped him. If you’ve seen this van, call the Vail Police Department.
The good folks at Bruch Creek Elementary School want to say thanks for letting Brush Creek Elementary School come to the new Eagle Pool last week.
