Air traffic control?

Support Local Journalism

I don’t know anything about flying air traffic control, but it seems to me that the air traffic controller in Gypsum should be fired. How dare you let private jets go out and not let a scheduled flight go out and all those people miss their connecting flights. I don’t know, I don’t fly, but it seems as though something stinks there.

A thought

It was like a bad letter to the editor. One 50-something woman with terrible grammar skills and even worse story-telling ability. Here’s a thought: If three 50-something woman can afford to buy fur coats, eat at the Game Creek Club and shop in Vail Village, one would think they might be able to share cab fare back to Beaver Creek.

Never easy

I was thinking about our situation in Iraq and remembered these words by Sir Winston Churchill. “Never, never, never believe any war will be smooth and easy, or that anyone who embarks on the strange voyage can measure the tides and hurricanes he will encounter. The statesman who yields to war fever must realize that once the signal is given, he is no longer the master of policy but the slave of unforeseeable and uncontrollable events.” Bob Fiske.

Those cops

The day was Friday, April 2, and I could not help notice all the (state troopers from Minturn to Edwards pulling everyone over. Young, old, it didn’t matter, they had everyone pulled over. And then I had noticed a (state trooper) going the wrong way down a one-way street in Minturn. Where are the Minturn Police to issue a summons to this person breaking the law? You have to be held accountable, too, young man. It’s a shame we have to live in this kind of society.

Signal-free zone?

Is there some law against using your turn signals in Eagle county? So few people use their signals I’m beginning to think that there is a law against it.
