Letters to the Editor

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

February 17, 2020

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

I particularly take issue Butch Mazzuca’s assertion in his Feb. 3 column, “From the jungle to the swamp,” that President Trump is at the helm of a “surging economy.” The stock market is not the...


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...


Letter: Support the mission of the Humane Society

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: An update from Eagle County Animal Services

February 12, 2020

The Eagle County Animal Services Advisory Committee was created in 2016 to provide community input to the Animal Services team at Eagle County. Eagle County Animal Services has responsibility for operating the Eagle County Animal...


Letter: Tell Gardner to support the CORE Act

February 12, 2020

I have been an advocate of our wildlands since I was in high school, about half a century ago. Being close to these special places is why my family has been visiting this area since...


Letter: Park and let park

February 11, 2020

The Feb. 3 issue of the Vail Daily gave details on Saturday’s overflow parking on the frontage road — a season’s record of 456 cars.  I was one of those parking there. As I cruised on South...



Letter: Thank you to Chris Freud

February 11, 2020

Wishing compliments and a thank you to Chris Freud for his two writings acknowledging the Shiffrin family and Mikaela with his condolences regarding the untimely death of Jeff Shiffrin. It was a terribly sad event...


Letter: ACE for Eagle

February 11, 2020

Adam Palmer is a community guy who spends his summer weekends volunteering to build single-track trails.  He is a dreamer and a doer.  He is a musician and a dad. Charlie Gundlach is an innovator with passion and...


Letter: Wildlife and fireworks don’t mix

February 11, 2020

It’s time we start prioritizing the needs of our wildlife neighbors when making decisions that negatively impact them. We are blessed to live and play in a mountain community, where if we’re lucky we can...


Letter: Time for a different primary system

February 5, 2020

The Iowa caucuses were a disaster, and this quaint experiment in democracy has to end. To have our candidates spend a year running around this one, small, unrepresentative state, is a waste of their time...


Letter: Thanks for all the love and support

February 5, 2020

I really want to send out a heartfelt thank you to my Castle Peak Veterinary Service family for putting on a grand retirement bash for me, and to all who attended from near and far....


Letter: Thanks to Colorado Behavioral Task Force

February 5, 2020

On behalf of the staff at Mind Springs Health in Eagle County, I would like to thank the Colorado Behavioral Task Force for visiting Eagle County on Jan. 31. With a mission of evaluating and setting...


Letter: The most complex problem of our time

February 5, 2020

Butch Mazzuca’s Jan. 26 column shows that he has added himself to the string section of Nero’s orchestra when it comes to addressing climate change. Don’t like Dr. Robert Davies’ message that there are economic consequences of...


Letter: The liar in chief

February 3, 2020

After 16,241 lies or misleading statements spewed by the current president of the U.S., according to the Washington Post’s fact checker, I’m still in shock that President Trump can be excused and free to lie...
