Wisdom: Vail should model Aspen

The ‘end of an era’

(Refer to the letter to the editor titled, “Skico is green”)

I don’t know the exact figures, but I believe Vail’s snowcats and snowmobiles use in the tens of thousands of gallons of fuel per season. Additionally, they are not subject to the same pollution controls as road vehicles. All that corduroy is contributing to the global warming that will eventually make our snowcapped mountains a nostalgic memory. Vail would do well to follow Aspen’s lead.


Blame the people

(Refer to “Acid reflux treatment doesn’t have to include prescription drugs”)

Food companies do not “make” people fat. People make people fat. You talk of personal responsibility when it is people who slam their faces with food. Give me a break.


Parenting times

(Refer to “Mom and dad go missing”)

Ahhhhh, parenting. The best of times, the worst of times. Great article!


It’s for the children

(Refer to “Developers aren’t gobbling all the land”)

How is land “lost to development” when we build homes for working families on it?


Yes, vote, but …

(Refer to the Daily editorial titled “Why we should vote”)

We need to vote, and if it is something regarding tax money funding for our county commissioners, well vote anyway even though you know for a fact that your vote will not count at all.
