What a week it was
The Titans of Town Talk, whose secret identity as Randy Wyrick is a closely guarded government secret, want to thank all the kind folks who submitted photos for our contest, “A Week In The Life of The Vail Valley.”So far, our favorites are the ones depicting adorable children in a sea of wildflowers waving red, white and blue flags, watching those eight train cars derail during the Vail parade as the funnel cloud swoops down. They would be perfect if the train wreck had been caused by black helicopters dropping cattle mutilated in some sort of heathen ritual – but that’s just us, and we’re not judging the contest
The deadline was Friday, and we sincerely thank everyone who entered. The book will be out some time around the Labor Day holiday, and we’ll have a huge party at the Vilar Center to celebrate and show off the photos. Also to sell them; the money goes to the Vail Valley Charitable Fund.You folks get two thumbs way, way up.Goalkeepers Camp
Colorado College’s head goalkeeper coach is running a soccer goalkeeper camp at the Berry Creek fields in Edwards. It’s July 24-26. You get three days of the kind of spectacular training you’d normally have to get from other spiral arm of the universe, like Europe. Call Susie Hervert at 926-3237.Go Levy
Congratulations to Levy Anthony Trujillo on landing that new job, from Brother Jesse and all the homies.Earl Thomas ConleyThe name alone should dust off those memories. He’s playing the Vilar Center at 7 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $30, and it’s a benefit for Eagle County 4-H programs. Call the Vilar Center Box Office at 845-TIXS (8497) or visit http://www.vilarcenter.org. As you recall, Conley is a hit machine with 21 No. 1 hits, which is more than the Titans of Town Talk, but not quite as many as Elvis. The evening will open with Nashville singer/songwriter Mike Pyle, a former Eagle County local. Mike wrote the Blake Shelton hit “All Over Me.”
Developers of an addiction treatment center at the former Lodge at Cordillera site say lawsuits brought forth by Cordillera residents and the metro district violated federal law, and the parties are headed to federal court.
