Highway 6 improvements

(Refer to “Cyclists getting more room on Highway 6”)

Arn, your persistence on this paid off. This has been one of your top priorities for quite some time. You deserve a heartfelt congratulations for working with the Colorado Department of Transportation to bring this project forward. Thanks for hanging in there.

Not green at all

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.

Mowing the slopes, which is anything but “environmentally sensitive,” will no doubt continue unabated because that allows them to keep jacking up the prices on lift tickets. Or am I just being cynical?


Need federal ID card

(Refer to “Who commits crime in Eagle County?”)
