My name is Larry. I own the Scarab next door to you in Eagle-Vail. I also live in Eagle-Vail, and I wanted to report something that happened yesterday. Some Democrats left material on my front door for the election and I saw them leave it. When I left to run an errand, I left the material on my front porch as I was going to read it when I came back. When I returned from my errands all of the Democratic material was gone, but there was an abundance of Republican material that was left. I don’t know if anyone else has reported this, but I find this disturbing. Maybe you guys can look into it.

Blaming the clerks

I feel that if this lady keeps going in to the post office and she says that they’re treating her rude. Well if they’re treating her so rude why does she keep going back for more? As I see it, the courtesy clerks are there to help you, and if they ask you to step aside so they can help someone else while you’re filling out your paperwork or your envelope, I think you should buy them ahead of time and fill them out. That way you’re not holding up the line. But if you’re not satisfied with the Avon Post Office, there are other post offices you can go to. Every time there’s something about the Avon Post Office, they’re always blaming the clerks. Well they have rules to follow, just like every one of us. I don’t know what you do, but I’d like to know what your rules are, what you have to answer to. I think that these guys are really doing a great job up there, and they have to put up with a bunch of bullshit that people give them. They have to answer all kinds of questions. I think if you have a problem you can always go somewhere else.

Chloride hysteria

I find it interesting looking at the Denver news and watching the snowstorm how we’ve got a new road additive, M-1000, and they state it has 30 percent magnesium chloride and corn, and it’s better for the environment, because there’s less magnesium chloride. Hey wait a minute, I thought there was nothing wrong with magnesium chloride. Also, I’d like to know why people in Eagle County are using more inhalers and having more allergic reactions now that winter’s upon us. Why doesn’t anybody take responsibility for magnesium chloride and get it off our roads and lower our speed limits. Boy oh boy, I feel sorry for all you losers.

Win’s a win

Stone wins again with the help of the Democrats. Stone won with the help of Laurie Bower, just like June Dean helped him get elected in 1998. Stone won with less than 50 percent of the vote. The Eagle County residents should be very pleased with how they handled this election.

A fan of KZYR

From swamp rock to art rock, the new Zephyr delivers, KZYR, thanks for finally speaking to a sophisticated rock audience. Todd McDowell, Vail, Colorado.

Shame on voters

I just wanted to say for those people who voted “No” on the new holiday to honor United Farm Workers’ founder Cesar Chavez, shame on you. I think anybody who eats vegetables, drinks wine should know that those fruits and vegetables come from farm workers and farms around the United States and Cesar Chavez should be considered a hero, because I don’t think you people would be picking your own grapes and vegetables. So Cesar Chavez should have his day, March 31. He is an excellent community leader and a hero to a lot of people. And how will our children ever learn about Cesar Chavez and what he did for us and the Hispanic community, not only in southern and central California, but around the United States. So shame on you.

Heading downhill

I’d just like to comment on the recent change of music at KZYR. I’ve lived in the valley for 22 years and gosh, there hasn’t been really much of a radio station base for any type of kid at all. I think they need to change that. They need to bring some modern music in here that the kids want to listen to. A lot of the parents when they listen to some of the modern music will enjoy it. But KZYR has just gone downhill and downhill and is slowly reaching the bottom.

Knucklehead drivers

I’d like to make a comment to the poor lady whose 15-year-old child was rudely aggravated by some moron bopping their horn behind the poor kid in the roundabout. We’ve got a bunch of knuckleheads here, from the east and west coasts, and a bunch of idiots that shouldn’t have a driver’s license. There’s no reason why anyone should honk their horn in Eagle County. I just don’t understand why we had to turn this place into a city. Yesterday I was in East Vail on Gore Creek, doing the speed limit at the end of East Vail coming back to town, and there was a fellow behind me in a Chevy pickup truck. Passed me in a residential area, then got behind a town of Vail bus, got slowed down. I caught up to him, honked my horn and waved. Then he got stopped behind a construction site. Again I got behind him, honked my horn and waved. Then he got stopped by a school bus. I again honked my horn and waved. You are a fool, pal, I hope you get in a one-car wreck, and you got nowhere, did you?
