Vail Mountaineer editor resigns
Edwards CO, Colorado
EDWARDS, Colorado ” The editor of the Vail Mountaineer, a local newspaper, announced his immediate resigna-tion Monday.
Stephen Lloyd Wood said his departure was due to disagree-ments with the paper’s owner, Jim Pavelich.
“The owner of the Mountaineer and I reached a long- brewing impasse over the journalistic stan-dards, ethics and principles of pub-lishing a newspaper of integrity,” Wood wrote in a resignation e- mail. ” I wish the Mountaineer’s continu-ing staff and contributors the best of luck.”
Wood declined to comment fur-ther. Pavelich did not return calls seeking comment Monday evening. Wood previously worked for the Vail Daily and the Vail Trail. He is also a freelance writer and ski instructor.
