Proposal for trains carrying oil through Eagle County suffers another setback, but isn’t dead yet
The prospect of oil-filled trains from Utah rolling next to the Colorado River suffered another setback this week. A Dec. 4 decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia rejected a motion to rehear challenges to the Uinta Basin Railway. That proposal was for an 88-mile line linking wells in the Uinta Basin to the Union Pacific Railroad’s main line. That line in Colorado parallels the Colorado River across the Western Slope, including Glenwood Canyon and much of Eagle County.

Finding missing pets in sprawling Eagle County isn’t easy, but there’s a team committed to bringing them home
A few years ago, while tracking a lost dog in Eagle County, locals Evelyn Pinney and Kate Hawthorne started to get the feeling they were being watched. They were following mountain lion tracks which were overlayed on top of canine tracks, never a good sign for those holding out hope for a lost dog. Pinney and Hawthorne followed the tracks to a tree, looked up and found the dog they were looking for, dead and cold and deliberately placed there.
Letter: Who comes up with these ‘improvements?’
Richard Carnes’ column in the Vail Daily was right on the mark! As a 45-year resident, this really depresses me. My credit card is in my wallet in my back pocket, as is normal. So now I must unfasten the seatbelt to remove it upon exiting the structure. Then, because I drive a smaller car rather than a truck or bus, I must get out of the vehicle to tap the card! No wonder there is such a long line to exit. Hopefully, a 10-minute grace period will be added to our time?

Recent storms deliver big boost to snowpack numbers for Vail Mountain
The early days of the water year — which stretches from October through early June — can bring big swings in snowpack numbers. For instance, the Nov. 30 report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Snotel site on Vail Mountain showed the “snow water equivalent” of just 2.4 inches, 57% of the normal reading for that date.
Vail’s winter snow removal operations are underway
The town of Vail has transitioned to its winter snow removal operations. As such, no on-street parking is available through April 28, 2024.

Letter: Booth Heights fight leads to questions
The town of Vail and Vail Resorts are currently at odds about a development called Booth Heights at the East Vail exit. Last month, Vail Resorts filed an appeal challenging the condemnation decision that granted the town possession of the 23-acre parcel. The town of Vail is trying to protect the herd of bighorn sheep that rely on this location. The vindictiveness of Vail Resorts that I see in this particular matter brings larger questions into my mind.
