  7. Treat Ski Club members as customersDear editor: This fall, as some may know, Ski and Snowboard Club Vail is opening a new clubhouse.

There is a temporary structure made up of three trailers next to each other, a total of 1,500 square feet; 500 square feet of the building is just for offices. The other 1,000 are for athletes. Some may think this is plenty of room for members of the club to get ready, but think again. To give you …
  8. Editor’s note: Find a cited version of this column at www.vaildaily.com.A coin has two sides: heads and tails. A society is more complicated than a coin. In parliamentary governments, there may be several parties. Think of it like a Rubik’s Cube. Sometimes, one or more of the smaller parties might hold the balance of power, as a major party without a majority might need to strike a deal in order to govern. Such is the case currently in Great Britain. As Americans, we generally like things simpler than that.In our country, a two-party system has evolved. There have been times …

Construction work should be done soon, after which comes the job of moving in the refreshed collection and a whole bunch of technology. Museum director Susie Tjossem said everything should be ready in early …
  11. Upon further review, rating-percentage index does matter for Vail Christian basketball.Yes, I was right that RPI doesn’t factor in until the state tournament. It’s just that the 2A state tournament starts with 32 teams this year, as opposed to eight in previous years.My bad. Thanks, Tim Pierson. He’s the athletic director at Vail Christian, but you know that if you’re reading this.The Saints still have the district tournament in DeBeque, but the 2A Slope gets five teams into state, which has eaten the old regional round.So where does this put with the Saints with regard to RPI?There is the natural …

  16. It’s not fire season right now — or at least it shouldn’t be — but continuing drought and seemingly constant shifts in “normal” weather patterns set the stage for record-setting winter wildfires in California that cost the federal government billions to contain, all which highlight similar concerns for Colorado. Ongoing drought cycles and the overgrown condition of our forests leave Colorado and the entire American West at risk of even more destructive and costly fire seasons in the days and years ahead. The federal government is the single largest landowner in Colorado, and the U.S. Forest Service manages the majority …
