Pile-up prevention?

Re: “Vail Pass crash ‘horrid,’ tow truck driver says”

I picked this up off the Denver Channel 7 Web site in a story about yesterday’s tragic crash near Vail Pass: “From there, it was chain reaction after chain reaction as cars continued to crash into the wreckage. Two hours later, cars were still skidding into the wreckage and the total count of damaged vehicles had climbed to about 70, according to the state patrol.” Why were cars still “skidding into the wreckage” two hours after the initial crash? Why weren’t cars stopped further down in Copper earlier?


I-70 toll trickle-down

Re: “Toll makes Eagle Co. more expensive”

Many small business owners can already attest to the fact there is an additional delivery fee due to increased fuel costs for items brought in. Now these companies who deliver from the Denver area will also be charging their customers this additional cost. In the long run, we will obviously have, once again the trickle down effect. It would be a shame to lose many of the small businesses due to the fact they’re being nickel and dimed to death. We’d be the ones to suffer in the long run.


Stavney loses my support

Re: “Eagle County: Builders blast housing rules”

Jon Stavney just lost my support in his bid for county commissioner and if Debbie Buckley says that she supports this ridiculous government intrusion then I will have no one to vote for. What is the matter with you, Jon? Aren’t you a businessman? Good grief. These housing rules drive the final nail in the coffin of the Eagle County economy. Please tell me who on earth would develop property under this scenario?
