  1. Eagle County is well represented at the Winter Olympic Games. Congratulations and kudos to all the athletes who call Eagle County home.Similar kudos to Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock, who, along with Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, has assembled an independent group of civic and community leaders from around the state to determine whether Denver should submit a bid for a future Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games when the United States Olympic Committee issues a call for U.S. cities interested in being candidates for consideration.

  2. Dear editor: I attended the town of Vail’s presentation at the community wildlife forum on Thursday Jan. 18, and found the presentation very sobering. Our wildlife is declining.The presenters were Bill Andree, Kelly Colfer, Rick Thompson and Jen Austin, all notables in their fields, respectively. They all alluded to the foremost problem of loss of wildlife being due to loss of natural habitat because of human population growth and human land needs. For those who did not attend the meeting, here are some of the facts I gleaned from the presenters:• A significant decline is in the elk herd that …

  5. DENVER — Cannabis businesses, beware: The Hershey Co. is on the warpath. Perhaps the most famous confectionery peddler in the world has a well-documented history of actively protecting its trademarks, and the marijuana industry is no exception. Although Hershey’s has been relatively quiet in the marijuana sector since it sued two cannabis businesses in 2014, the company seemingly ramped up its oversight of possible trademark infringements in 2017. Hershey’s — a Fortune 500 company with annual revenue of more than $7 billion — sent cease-and-desist letters last year to at least two California marijuana companies: Harborside, a well-established dispensary in …

  12. GYPSUM — When the towns of Eagle and Gypsum took over ownership and maintenance of U.S. Highway 6 through and between the two communities, officials hoped motorists wouldn’t notice any differences or, if they did, then they would be changes for the better.This year’s mild winter has helped that goal in terms of snowplowing.“It’s been a hard litmus test year to judge snowplowing,” said Ryan Murray, a Gypsum resident who owns Red Canyon Cafe in Eagle. Murray regularly drives Highway 6 during the early morning hours, so he is acutely aware of road conditions after big storms. So far for …
  13. The power went out in the western Eagle Valley the evening of Monday, Feb. 19. The lights came back on fewer than 90 minutes later. The outage was notable for its scope — lights went out from Eagle to Dotsero. But also notable was that the lights went out at all.Power outages, particularly widespread ones such as Monday’s, are pretty rare in our part of the world. Power outages were more common 25 years ago.Technology has improved, of course, and more of the valley’s power lines are buried, which protects the service. Then there’s the quick response of Holy Cross …
  14. Colorado is bouncing back from a slow start to the snow season, enjoying a healthy storm cycle over the past several weeks. But in the Vail and Summit County region, the new snow is ushering in one of the most dangerous backcountry snowpack regimes in several years, raising the prospect of unpredictable and devastatingly large avalanches. The risk of deep persistent slab avalanches, which occur when snow loads heavily on top of old, weak layers from the early season, is now present on most slopes in Summit County, particular on northwest, north-northeast and east-facing slopes, according to the Colorado Avalanche …
  15. Legacy cemented.Lindsey Vonn got bronze in the Olympic downhill five years after her right knee was destroyed at the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in Schladming, Austria.Google “Lindsey Vonn crash 2013.” Watch the crash. Hear her screaming in pain. That was a career-ender … for most.Vonn’s had 21 World Cup wins after that. I often say that’s a career for most because, well, it’s fact. Twenty-one wins is tied for 18th on the men’s list with Kjetil Andre Aamodt, Didier Cuche and Alexis Pinturault. It’s makes her 22nd on the women’s list, and her entire career has her atop that …
  16. What is a caucus? More specifically, what is a precinct caucus? Because that’s what we’re about to experience in the state of Colorado. And for the record, both Republicans and Democrats follow the same process, which is mandated and regulated by state law. I will be doing several articles on the series of events that starts with the Republican Caucus on Tuesday, March 6, and ends with the Republican State Assembly on Friday, April 13, and Saturday, April 14.A precinct caucus is a meeting, held every general election year, of registered voters of a major political party. These meetings are …
  17. Now, more than ever, we need to be willing to step into the political realm and reclaim our endangered democracy. You can help ensure we have an effective and just political system by becoming a part of it — by attending your party’s precinct caucus.It’s true that the precinct caucuses can be inconvenient, confusing and even chaotic. What Democratic Party caucusgoers in Colorado experienced two years ago was unexpected: Enthusiastic crowds were motivated to show up at what is usually a sedate neighborhood meeting. In many locations, attendance exceeded our volunteers’ ability to manage the event in an orderly way. …

  20. Miracles happen, sometimes in as little as a minute, which is one explanation for Eagle Valley High School students pouring almost $5,000 into a great cause in one minute.The cause is 7-year-old Scarlett Jones, who’s fighting leukemia, and winning.Scarlett asked the Make-A-Wish Foundation for a Disney cruise, and Eagle Valley students set a $5,000 fundraising goal to send her and her family on their way.At first, they worried, “How in the world are we going to raise that much money?” They didn’t need to worry.They opened their Wish Week drive with The Miracle Minute.
