  1. BASALT — Meet The Seven.They are Battle Mountain football’s offensive line — seven strong — in the Huskies’ double-wing offense. The Huskies ran for a whopping 335 yards during a 41-33 loss at Basalt on Friday, Sept. 22.It was a tough one for Battle Mountain (2-2), but The Seven, named for Todd Walker, is one of many good takeaways from the Longhorns game.Camden Dooley rushed for 118 yards, and Traver Goldberg went off for 100, while Nick Walter had 88.Good job by the three rushers, yes, but that’s an even better job by The Seven.The second takeaway for the Huskies …

BOULDER — Milesplit.com, which is the go-to site for all things running, declared the Pat Patten Invitational in Boulder, “This Week’s Meet of Destiny.”That headline really ought to be accompanied by some dramatic music.Battle Mountain cross-country approached its destiny with skill and speed on Saturday, Sept. 23, as the ladies proved they are one of the best in the state, regardless of classification.The Huskies finished second (65 points)— gasp — behind Mountain Vista (34) — by winning a tiebreaker with Broomfield.

  4. VAIL — It was 2002 when Packy Walker, Josef Staufer and Joe Hanlon started a new Vail tradition: Pioneer Weekend. Since then, the weekend, held every five years, has become a celebration of Vail’s past and a way to honor those no longer among us.This year’s Pioneer Weekend wraps up Sunday, Sept. 24, with a memorial at the Wedding Deck near Eagle’s Nest on Vail Mountain, followed by lunch. There, those who have gathered remember friends who have passed over the past five years. As time goes on, the list gets longer.“I got the list the other day,” Walker said. …
  5. Rob and Linda Trotter looked around at their TNT Ranch, at the fertile soil, at the snowmelt water that starts at 12,500 feet above sea level and flows to them before it goes anywhere else, and decided they should grow something.And so they launched Pot Zero, which they say are the most environmentally conscious marijuana products in Colorado and beyond. Their outdoor grow operation creates no carbon footprint.They’ve been growing things for years: hay, Scottish Highland cattle, kids … so marijuana wasn’t quite the paradigm shift others might think it would be.The hydroelectric plant generates all the power the ranch …
  6. LITTLETON — Allegedly, we’re in the grinding portion of the cross-country season. The newness of the season is gone and, at the same time, regionals aren’t quite in sight.And none of that is stopping Eagle Valley cross-country. The Devils boys won Division 2 of the Dave Sanders Invitational down in Littleton on Friday, Sept. 22, while the girls were seventh.

Nonconference play concludes on Thursday, Sept. 28 at Northridge.The key stat of the game was five Eagle Valley turnovers.Although it was called back, perhaps it was a sign of how things were going to go on Friday that Evergreen returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown.

  10. VAIL — What better time that Pioneer Weekend to honor Vail’s original pioneer, reasoned Roger Tilkemeier.“Pete’s Dream” would be a monument honoring Pete Seibert, Vail’s founder, as well as the ranchers and homesteaders who were here before Vail.“It’s emotional with me,” Tilkemeier said.Roger bounced the idea off of Bill Rey of Claggett-Rey Gallery in Vail the idea took flight again.“This is about the risk-takers, Pete, Earl Eaton and all those early believers,” Rey said.Sketch planWhen Pete Seibert, Sr., was still alive and the original idea for Siebert Circle was kicking around, Pete, Warren Miller and Christy Hill were working with …

  12. Vail is dead, or long live Vail?This has been a tough year for the locals of Vail. First, it was Kenny, then Lou and now Byron. If you knew any of these fine gentlemen (the rumble you just felt was Lou), then you were fortunate. If you knew them all, then you were lucky — or have just been around here for a while. Probably both.Sitting in a five-star restaurant that used to be a no-star gas station, thoughts of the two big fights going on in Vail made me wonder: What has become of our little town?Waves of nostalgia …

GLENWOOD SPRINGS — If Stubler Memorial Field in Glenwood Springs ever burns down to the ground, then Battle Mountain soccer coach David Cope better have a rock solid alibi.Yes, John Ramunno Field in Gypsum has been a tough place during the last three years, but Stubler remains an eternal house of horrors for Battle Mountain soccer, so the Huskies were more than happy to escape on Thursday, Sept. 21, with a 3-2 win over the Demons.“We escaped with our tail between our legs,” Cope said. “It was a bit of scramble.”The funny thing was that Battle Mountain (7-2 overall and …
  16. EAST VAIL — It’s not like the wheels fell off.

  17. No luck with customer service at USPSI am writing on behalf of all of the missing mail of Vail in regard to our town’s branch of the U.S. Postal Service. We must work together to solve the problem that is our post office. I am considered one of the lucky ones in town. What I mean by this is that my neighborhood receives (or is supposed to receive) mail delivery. However, as many of you know firsthand, the inconsistent and negligent postal practices often leave residents in the dark when it comes to mail delivery. In the past 12 months …
  18. SUMMIT COUNTY — Colorado is planning to invest millions of dollars into its electric vehicle infrastructure as early as 2018, and the benefits could immediately be felt across the entire Western Slope.As part of the pending multibillion-dollar Volkswagen settlement with the U.S. government stemming from diesel engines designed to offer fraudulent emissions results, $68 million is the state’s piece of the pie. A Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment draft plan envisions $10 million of the windfall going toward at least 60 new electric fast-charging stations along Colorado’s major arteries, including Interstate 70.A consumer group-driven analysis states that number …
  19. EAGLE — Three weeks ago, the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office reached out to the community with a Crime Stoppers appeal for information about a hit-and-run accident involving a mountain biker and a motorcycle along the Second Gulch Trail south of Eagle.It took less than a day for the motorcyclist to come forward with a very different narrative regarding what happened along the trail.On Aug. 28, Deputy Jake Best responded to the original report.

  20. As it turns out, if you bought a $35 ticket to see Ben Harper & the Innocent Criminals in Avon, then you got a great deal.During the Friday, Sept. 15, concert, Harper himself invited the $35 ticket holders up to the front of the venue where the $160 ticket holders were enjoying premium views of the show.“Nothing was done to preserve those seating areas,” Lori Sudduth, of Colorado Springs, wrote to the Avon Town Council following the show. “There was no security to be seen after the concert began.”While elected officials in Avon wait to hear the total number of …
