DisappointedThis is Kathy from Eagle. I just wanted to tell you how disappointed I was at the opening night for the Eagle County Fair and Rodeo. I’ve lived here for nine years now, and it’s always been one of the highlight evenings of the year, and last year and this year have been such a disappointment. This year they didn’t even have a band. They had decent bulls and very few riders that even made the eight seconds. I think that maybe there were only two or three. I keep hearing that it’s the finals of the Cheyenne Rodeo the same week, so I can’t understand why something doesn’t change. But we here in Eagle County love the Eagle County Fair and Rodeo. But like I said, it’s been a total disappointment and I just fear that you’re going to lose your support for the rodeo, so I think that something needs to be done about it and I think the fair board needs to hear what the people of Eagle and Eagle County think. I’m certainly not the only one who feels this way. I’ve talked to a lot of people that feel the same way. So let’s try and make it a little bit better and bigger next year to get back to the way it used to be. Thank you.Menconi must goI’d like to call up and complain about Commissioner Arn Menconi. First of all we read how him and his puppet Peter Runyon are having closed back door meetings with Frampton and these other powers to be and him and Runyon are trying to kick Tom Stone off the water board because they disagree with his views. Well, I just want everybody to know he’s going to start kicking us out of the valley next because we disagree with his views also, and megalomaniac Arn doesn’t like that. People, we elected him. Time to get rid of him. Arn must go.Bring scooper, tooI’ve just had the nice experience of going to the Edwards new pond down there and the dogs are allowed to go in it, but unfortunately, some of the people that are using that are not picking up after their dogs, and I wondered if you could run an article on that, whether it be in Tips or something else, just saying that it would be appreciated if people would pick up after their dogs. Thanks, Jackie. What’s the hurry?Why is it that when people run in to the store to pay for their gas or whatever they pull up right in front of the store and leave their driver’s side door open and their car running and probably got there other stuff in there. No wonder it’s a temptation for people to steal. Use your brains, people. Shut your car off and lock your door. You’re not in that big of a hurry.No dummyI’m calling about the officer who is on the highway every day. We think he’s really cute, too. My kids and I know his name, his name is Officer Kin. Officer Manny Kin, that’s what we call him. He does seem a little bit rude sometimes though as he doesn’t wave back when we wave at him. Other than that, we think he’s doing a great job slowing down the people on I-70. Thanks for the great work, Officer Kin.Vail, Colorado
