Howdy and welcome to Town Talk, the column whose World Cups runneth over.Movin’ right into it.
USA goes fastAmericans Bode Miller and Daron Rahlves were One-Two in Friday’s downhill – a proud day for lovers of torque and recoil, which is all Real Americans.To the Titans of Town Talk it seems pretty obvious. Athletes from the country that invented rock ‘n’ roll and the drag race SHOULD win the downhill. It’s an American thing to do.There’s seriously cool World Cup stuff to do and see all weekend. Check it out, and make some noise while you’re there.
Karma upgradeJamie Meirowsky’s Jeep spun off the side of Miller Ranch Road on the ice Thursday morning, and ended up in about two feet of snow and couldn’t get out. Two guys in a beverage company truck and another man in his gray pickup truck pulled over on the road to help tow Jamie out of the snow. We don’t know their names, but Jamie hopes they see this note. They get stars in their crown and good karma. “It made me appreciate all over again the wonderful people we have living in our community. THANK YOU!!”
Eagle seeks a sloganHow about, “One small town, one big family;” “As the Eagle soars;” or A Century of Soaring?”The Eagle Centennial Committee is seeking a slogan to use throughout next year’s celebration. The town turns 100 years old in March, 2005, and plans are already in the way for special events nearly every month of the year. The slogan will be part of the promotional effort. If you have any suggestions, contact Kathy Heicher at 328-6656 ext. 2801; or e-mail email@example.com. The deadline for slogan suggestions is 5 p.m. on Wednesday.Vail Colorado
Wolves were a problem for ranchers when Kip Gates’ great-great-grandfather homesteaded in the area. He doesn’t want the problem to return.
