Justice equals dismissal

I have been following this case from afar, and have no ax to grind. I am not a Kobe Bryant fan or a Laker fan, nor do I know his accuser. Your paper is the only one that has provided evenhanded coverage – thorough and fair to all. Randy Wyrick has done an outstanding job in print and in occasional interviews on television. It is also the only paper that, in the true tradition of journalism as it was intended to be, has kept the news on the front page and opinions in the editorials. Your editorial this morning has struck a chord with me. I have been paying attention to the evidence and testimony, not the mainstream media hysteria and hype, and have come to the same conclusion. There are no winners here. Both young lives have been irreparably damaged. But justice must now prevail. Justice equals dismissal. A Los Angeles area reader.

Get going sooner

This is in response to Tipsline Fri., Oct. 10: “Try the speed limit.” My response is, get up earlier. Winter’s right around the corner, and it’s going to be a lot slower then.

Newspaper nudity

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.

If I wanted to see naked people, I would buy the Vail Undressed Calendar. I don’t particularly care to see naked people advertised in the newspaper, especially when I have to explain it to my children. Anyway, just wanted to let you know that.

Just slow down

I’m calling about the speed limit from Edwards to Avon. Maybe the people that are complaining don’t understand the word “limit.” Maybe they should petition the DOT to post a minimum speed sign so that they can legitimately complain about the people going 45 mph. I think with the construction that 45 is just fine, and if these few people are late for work because of that five-mile stretch of road and a 10 mile per hour difference in speed, then they need to leave their house a little earlier. People rushing to get somewhere on time are much more dangerous than people who slow down to take a look around.

Leash your pets

I’m very sorry to read about this Snowshoe dog incident. It’s very sad that these incidents have to happen when people thoughtlessly allow their dogs to run free. Sure, we’d all like the opportunity to have our dogs running free, but it’s sheer foolishness to do it when there are other people with their dogs on leash, or minding their own business and walking alone who can be approached and attacked, albeit playfully sometimes, by the free dog. I’ve been injured by dogs that were running free and so has my dog, though I had him on a leash. Please be mindful of this, and also, I pick up after your dog sometimes. He can’t pick up after himself. Why don’t you bend over and do everyone a favor and get out a poopy bag and take care of your dog’s waste.

Too much, too much

I wasn’t sure if you guys noticed this, but in the property transfer section of the paper I noticed that Adam Aron sold a property for a $2.25 million profit on the same day from Vail Resorts. Have a good day. I’m a little upset with that, too.
