Bear in Old Edwards?

(Refer to the letter to the editor titled “Bears in Miller Ranch?”)

My neighbor convinced me that the overturned trash cans in our neighborhood last week were the work of bear. They must be very desperate for food since they are coming down here. First time in 10 years I have heard of bear in this area.


We’re plenty young

(Refer to the Wisdom to the Web comment titled “You call that young?”)

The Young Democrats of America allow members from 18 to 36 years old in their group. The National Young Republicans allow those 18 to 40 years old to join. All active members in the Eagle County Young Republican group are well under 30 and you wouldn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of guessing Mrs. Buckley’s age (I won’t tell!)

Finally, we drafted our charter for the Eagle County Young Republicans to include those under 18 as student members. How old are you, Dave1685? Want to help us look beyond stereotypes and contribute?


Strengthen smoking ban

(Refer to ‘Should Avon soften smoking ban?”)

This is outrageous.If anything they should strengthen the ban and make the distances and taxes even greater. It is one of the only ways to legally kill yourself in this country and the tolerance for it is ridiculous. Tax cigarettes heavily and make it inconvenient to smoke. People will quit and then be thankful.

It should also be a crime to smoke in front of children, especially if they are your own.


Ashamed of Timber Ridge

(Refer to “Vail’s Timber Ridge needs a lot of work.”)

I guess every town needs to have its slum. Vail should be embarrassed to say the least, especially when they spend truck loads of money on superfluous B.S.


Take Vick’s diploma away

(Refer to “NCAAP: Vick should return to NFL”)

Oh sure, dog fighting is just like hunting, only if you put a deer in a pen and viciously attack it with a box cutter for 45 minutes. If the animal doesn’t die you starve it, antagonize it and try again next week. Please! I graduated from Virginia Tech like Mike and believe the guy is one gifted athlete, but I think they should take his diploma back for being so stupid.
