Re: What will Vail spend $8.6 million on?

How about this crazy notion? Save it for a rainy day and make a little interest in the mean time! I understand that it is burning a hole in your pocket but maybe it’s time to break that vicious cycle.

Re: Letters to the Editor

While I agree with Otto, I do not believe you can compare Lech with Vail and Beaver Creek.

The vast majority of European resorts (and last I looked Lech was one of them) are not owned by publicly traded share corporations with no ties to the community. They are run by the communities themselves or local companies so the motivation to destroy the cash cow in order to milk her is not as strong. SP

Participate in The Longevity Project

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.

Re: Chain law bill moves to the Senate

Kudos to Dan Gibbs! I want to personally thank him for reviving the bill that will put more pressure on truckers to chain up.

Winter in the West Slope is filled with errant truckers continually causing backups, frustration and accidents on the I-70 corridor because they choose not to put the chains on their tires. Helen Migchelbrink

Re: Keep Kid Rock coming

The police do prepare for the events but end up working overtime to control the crowds and it costs the town money. For what? The Denver kids that come up and spend little to nothing to go to the concert.

Do the event planners for the Town or Vail Resort understand who they are catering to in Vail?

How many locals went to String Cheese or Fight Night? How many are going to Kid Rock?

I’ll be in Copper.

Re: End of the Old West?

Hello Town of Eagle!

It’s been suggested for years that the rural setting to the east of Eagle could be an awesome equestrian development. Include some high-end residential with riding trails, training facility, boarding and event center.

How about a top-notch hotel that caters to people traveling with horses?

Re: End of the Old West?

Great idea. Why won’t someone seek to differentiate their towns? Why are the residents of Eagle hell bent on becoming the Silverthorne of Eagle County instead of setting itself apart from the rest of the valley’s chinzy development?

So sad there is such a lack of vision and creativity in this county.
