Feeling left out?

The Daily had a puff piece about a girl’s only winter sports event sponsored by Specialty Sports. Clinics, tours, wine and cheese, and big discounts on purchases. What do you think would have happened if someone sponsored a men-only event like that? There would have been cries of gender bias, and news stories would have had a negative slant. Just one more example of hypocrisy in the local culture.

Slight overstatement

This is a tip for Roger Brown. Roger, unfortunately you live in a county which has a history of corruption, power control, vindictiveness. The only way some people can express opinions or express facts and figures is through Tipsline. Otherwise, the powers that be seem to always take ’em down.

Rhetorical questions

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.

These are really questions for Answerland, but here goes. What is going on at the airport? Seems to be out of control. Who is in charge? Who and what is ECAT? Is it county? Is it private? Is it the commissioners? Taxpayers? Or is this a case of local government forcing their way into the private sector through power and position … essentially abuse. Whatever is going on is not working. Old story, repeated. Government should stay out of the private sector.

Greed factor

I’m calling in regards to maybe the locals around here should quit complaining about our immigration policies and look at how some of our locals around here are suffering and how there’s a whole apartment complex full of people getting evicted from their apartment complexes. When it comes to Vail sticking with their locals, as soon as it comes to money they run and book it for the money. It’s really sad around here now, and I’ve grown up here for around 16 years.

Loves bowling alley

I’m calling on your article on the tourists and their view on the bowling alley at Crossroads. You know, who really cares what the tourists think? We’re here all year and we haven’t had a bowling in Avon since the 1970s. I think a bowling alley would be great.

Digging out

This is Ray. I live up in Homestead. It’s Tuesday afternoon and I just wanted to give a shout to the fire department. They’re digging out all the hydrants in our neighborhood today, and I never thought about what a problem it would be if there was a fire in our neighborhood and all of those hydrants were covered with snow. So thanks to those guys for digging them out.


I’d like to congratulate the Avon Police Department and the school district on taking legal action against that women. Using a dead person’s social security number. Come on. …
