How about you guys that have those smelly diesels that you have to stand and smell, or your strong cologne that brings on allergy attacks and migraines. … Quit your whining.Below radarThis is in response to Arn’s glowing letter about the conditions and situations in Eagle County. One glaring omission, Arn. What is the status at the airport? Aren’t you the president of ECAT? What about the lawsuit? What about the parking? What about security? The portal to our economic future is troubled. Why was that not mentioned? Please respond. Thanks, Arn.Give to victimsUnfortunately the town of Vail cannot return $7.7 million to the victims who paid the tax to pay for the phantom convention center. I think the town of Vail should give the money to crime victim’s advocacy groups or persons in those groups. …Vail, Colorado
