Letter: Mini-Mike’s the man

February 26, 2020

Democrats are betting that people are fed up with the scorched-Earth partisanship, corruption and disregard for the rule of law. They are betting that enough people who voted for this president now regret their decision. ...


Letter: Carnes’ confusion is his own

February 26, 2020

I think the only confusion that Richard Carnes observes in his latest column, “Confusion rules across the board,” is his own. It’s fairly clear that his talking points throughout the piece have been cobbled together...


Letter: Time to move on from Tipton

February 26, 2020

We have had more than enough of sweet-smiling Scott Tipton in our Congress. I think he has finally said climate change is happening, but he seems to think we should study it more. His record...


Letter: Thanks to the kind snowboarder

February 24, 2020

On Feb. 15, I took a fairly nasty fall on the skier’s right edge of Lost Boy. I caught an edge and was afraid I’d go into the trees, so I chose to crash instead....


Letter: Just a nip, not a bite

February 24, 2020

As someone who has been a responsible dog owner for 22 of the 23 years my wife and I have lived in EagleVail, I certainly didn’t appreciate the cavalier attitude of the woman I passed...


Letter: Key dates for the election year

February 24, 2020

I am writing to clarify a few important points for Colorado’s 2020 election process. On Tuesday, March 3, there is a presidential primary in which folks can vote for their favorite presidential candidate in their chosen...


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

February 21, 2020

Linda Carr claims in her recent letter that “we are living in a very similar situation to 1933 Germany.” Nothing could be further from historical and contemporary facts. Other than in the fevered minds of...


Letter: How to make Eagle County great again

February 21, 2020

The Feb. 19 edition of the Vail Daily contained intriguing articles regarding local affairs. Allow me, a winter resident of the Vail Valley and a summer resident of Denver, to share some ideas and opinions...




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

The future is looking grim. Coastal cities are already experiencing the effects of rising sea levels, Houston has “100-year” floods annually, and each summer seems to set heat records for Colorado. Studies predict there will...




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...
