Town Talk

Daily Staff Report
Happy birthday to Tyler Epperson ... the big 10! Only six more years and you can drive "Hey's" jeep, "Rust and Smoke."

Howdy and welcome to Town Talk.

Here at the Vail Daily we’re experimenting with home delivery. We, The Titans of Town Talk would like to pass along the following advice to home deliverees:

“It’s always darkest just before dawn … so if you’re gonna steal the neighbors’ newspaper, that’s the time to do it.”

You’re smarter than this

A man walked into a Louisiana Circle-K, put a $20 bill on the counter, and asked for change. When the clerk opened the cash drawer, the man pulled a gun and asked for all the cash in the register, which the clerk promptly provided. The man took the cash from the clerk and fled, leaving the $20 bill on the counter. The total amount of cash he got from the drawer? $15.

Our question: If someone points a gun at you and gives you money, was a crime committed?

Jason Oleson funeral

Funeral services for Jason Oleson will be held 10 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 21, at the Eagle Baptist Church at 14600 U S Hwy 6 between Eagle and Gypsum.

There will be a viewing at 9 a.m. before the service. There will also be a viewing at Farnum Holt Funeral Home, 405 W. 7th in Glenwood, 6:30-8 p.m. on Monday Oct. 20.

Get your act together

It’s time again for Stinky Pierre’s Intercafe. The open mic and stage night will be held 7-9 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 22 in the lower level of the Ministry Center behind Vail Chapel. As usual, doors open at 6:30 and admission is free. Beverages and snacks are free, but donations are gratefully accepted. Stinky Pierre himself may actually appear at this cafe. He is a very busy man and has been detained in Paris until now and has not yet made an appearance at the Cafe. He has been spotted at the ticket counter

for the Concorde to New York. This should be a very special night.A nyone interested in performing or needing more information may call Kim at 476-6610 to set up a time slot.

Golfing for gold
