Vail Daily, Vail Colorado COFriend takenThanksgiving is traditionally a time we reflect on those in our lives that we are most thankful for. For many families this year, it is a reminder of those they love that are no longer here. Our friend, Jake Brock, was taken from this world in March by a drunk driver. Jake would have celebrated his 20th birthday tomorrow. Please keep Jake and his family in your thoughts. And for Jake’s sake, don’e drink and drive. We miss you, Jake. The WrightsEagle Appreciate the help!The Fire Science Technology Program at Colorado Mountain College recently sponsored a one day seminar titled “Fire Strategy, Tactics & Command Safety.” Retired PhoenixFire Chief Alan Brunacini shared lessons he learned in 48 years in the fire service with the more than 100 emergency responders in attendance. The class was held at the Eagle Valley High School Auditorium in Gypsum Oct. 27.I want to thank the good people at the Eagle Valley High School for the use of the auditorium! Your support allowed us to host a world-class speaker while keeping the costs to the students as low as possible! Also, a big thank you to the men and women of the Gypsum Fire Protection District for assisting with the details that make an activity such as this successful. Lastly, thanks go to my bride, Marcia Keiser, for registering attendees, handing out certificates, feeding the group, and generally being “Mom.”Kurt P. KeiserFire Science Program CoordinatorColorado Mountain CollegeDon’t get itI do not understand the reasoning behind Eagle County’s decision to give the Gates $2.5 million of our money so they can, quote, “pass the ranch on to my kids.” Why are we responsible for his kids? At the very least, the county should insist that the Gates provide limited access across the ranch to public property for hikers and hunters.Neil MuncasterVail
