For folks who were planning to attend Richard Vossler’s memorial service this Saturday, there’s been a change.

The memorial service is the same ” 10:30 a.m. at the Vail Interfaith Chapel ” but the reception site has been shifted. The new site is the Vail Racquet Club in East Vail immediately following the service at the chapel.

Vail Valley Medical Center has agreed to allow those going to the chapel to use the hospital’s parking structure by WestStar Bank.



Josh Farmer the new wrestling coach at Eagle Valley Middle School, has come up with a hair-raising way to raise money for the program: growing a mustache and sideburns, pirate style, since the school’s mascot is, yes, a pirate.

Farmer has asked the kids at Eagle Valley to vote with their pocket change whether he should keep growing or get his Schick together and shave.



Of course, Farmer is also hoping parents and others vote the old-fashioned way: with folding money.

To cast your greenback ballot on how hair-stute Farmer should be, send votes to:

Pirate Wrestling



P.O. Box 1019

Eagle, CO 81631

The what kinda valley?

What valley we live in is a touchy subject.

Those concerned about marketing and image have seized upon our best-known asset and call where we live the Vail Valley. Hence, we have references to the “Vail-Eagle County airport,” which is actually in Gypsum.

While calling everything between Dotesero and Shrine Pass the Vail Valley makes things easier for the marketeers, it does grate on some long-timers and western valley residents.

One of the grated is Angela Beck. After seeing a photo illustration of a bridge near the airport crossing the “Vail Valley,” Ms. Beck sent the following:

“Please! This is the Eagle River Valley. I am 74 years old, born in Red Cliff. It has always been the Eagle River Valley.”

You have lots of company, Angela, and you’re not going to get an argument from this corner of the newsroom, but the official Vail Daily style for the geographical areas are as follows:East of Edwards we refer to it as the Vail Valley and west of Edwards it’s the Eagle Valley, sorry.
