Town Talk for Dec. 17

Vail, CO, Colorado
Alexis Wible would like to introduce her new baby sister Riley. She was born Dec. 8 at 12:20 a.m., and weighed 6 pounds, 12 ounces. A special thanks to Dr. Samuels, Dr. Bettenhausen and the Vail Valley Medical Center nurses for taking such good care of us!

Tell us what’s going on around town so we can talk about it.


Call: 970-748-2933. Submissions must be received by noon prior to the day of desired publication.

Thanks for all the photo submissions. We really appreciate them, and we want you to have your photos back! Please pick up your photos at the front office of the Daily within 30 days. Photos not picked up by then will be filed in the infamous File 13, never to be seen again.

As many of you know, Chris and Gary Scrip’s house caught on fire Dec. 3 on Bellyache Ridge at Wolcott. Luckily, they are both fine, along with their cat. Their house, however, will need major repair. They are unable to reside there until the repair work has been finished. They are in between the cleanup and insurance claim.

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.

Many of you have asked what you can do to help, and right now we could help the most if we came together and made a donation. If you would like to make a donation, please contact U.S. Bank in Edwards and deposit your donation in the “Gary Scrip Catastrophe Fund.” Please also email Mary Ann Metternick to let her know that you have done so and she will send them a card with all of the donors’ names.
