Letter: No, it’s not 1933 all over again

February 21, 2020

Letter: From bad to great

February 20, 2020

Imagine: I totaled my car on Sunday coming home from church and everyone was so nice that I almost enjoyed it! First, a policewoman came by to make sure I wasn’t hurt. The woman I...


Letter: It’s 1933 all over again

February 19, 2020

In the United States today, we are living in a very similar situation to 1933 Germany. I recommend to all of you, Republican, Democrat, independent, libertarian, to broaden your horizons a bit and read the book...


Letter: Giving thanks for the Thrifty Shop

February 19, 2020

A few years ago my mother passed and the family had the arduous task of cleaning out the house for sale. It is such a terrible experience. You are in shock, sad and grieving, and...


Letter: Tell Cory Gardner to protect Colorado’s future

February 19, 2020

Letter: Mike has the chops

February 17, 2020

The Democratic primaries have left me feeling politically unmotivated, uninspired and distinctly uneasy. The Iowa Caucus brought those feelings into sharp focus, with its disastrous vote-counting debacle, making the Democrats appear incompetent and dangerously vulnerable....


Letter: This could’ve been really bad

To the employee of Umbrella Roofing who lost a ladder while driving on westbound I-70 on Thursday afternoon near Wilmor Lake from those of us who could have been killed: If you can’t properly attach...


Letter: Taking issue with Mazzuca column

February 17, 2020

Letter: No need to apologize

February 17, 2020

The whining and entitlement of some people complaining about long lines, wanting refunds on their equipment, and more lifts open is pathetic. Skiing is an extreme sport. Weather is always a factor — so deal...


Letter: Fully staffed vs. 100% staffed

February 14, 2020

So, I was thinking, and my thoughts have nothing to do with anything. No really, nothing made thoughts come into my head like a snowstorm. The blizzard that is dumping all of these thoughts in my...

February 14, 2020

The Eagle Valley Humane Society and the Town Council of Avon are having a discussion about the town taking over the Humane Society’s liquor license and booth for the annual Avon fireworks show, “Salute to the USA.” What I hope the Avon...


Letter: New traction law is a joke

February 14, 2020

Recently the Vail Daily ran a front-page story indicating the snow tire law was having a positive effect. This is complete and utter nonsense. Today, Feb. 13, at 8 a.m., eastbound Vail Pass is closed...


Letter: EagleVail needs change

February 14, 2020

It’s election time in EagleVail and property owners association candidates Jessica Woods, Madeleine Berenson and Lindsey Breed will bring new and fresh ideas to our community.  Thanks to Jake Jacobson for volunteering his time. Let’s...

Letter: Tell Gardner to support the CORE Act

February 12, 2020
