Lighten up

Dear Editor:Must be offseason, when a lighthearted Winterskl slogan contest transforms into a local “controversy.” (Note to City Council: Please reconsider mandatory offseason medical marijuana permits for locals with too much time on their hands.)Anyway, I wanted to publicly thank the Winterskl slogan committee for choosing my original submission (“It’s To Die For”), and allowing me to keep the prize.Fair warning to fellow sloganistas: I’ve resubmitted five new slogans (yeah, I’m competitive that way). But since the contest limits entries to a mere five, I have a bundle of extras I’m putting out as open source slogans for my pithy-expression-impaired friends. So feel free to use any of the following (unless your name rhymes with “Messy Lamb-Smell III”):- Winterskl 2012: Sanitized For Your Protection- Winterskl 2012: Haters Gonna Hate … Whatever- Winterskl 2012: Serious Fun – Seriously!- Winterskl 2012: Offending Killjoys Since 1951- Winterskl 2012: Yo Mama’s So Phat!- Winterskl 2012: 21 Percent Hotter Than Summerskol- Winterskl 2012: More Funner Than Usual- Winterskl 2012: Dear Editor, Blah-Blah-Blah … – Winterskl 2012: Go ‘Skol Yerself!- Winterskl 2012: Got ‘Skol?- Winterskl 2012: Heart & ‘Skol- Winterskl 2012: If You’re Close Enough To Read This 3-Inch Winterskl Button, I Get To Kiss Your Forehead.- Winterskl 2012: Mark Thomas Kicks Ass!- Winterskl 2012: I See Fun People!- Winterskl 2012: I See White People!- Winterskl 2012: I’ve Fallen, And I Don’t Want To Get Up.- Winterskl 2012: House Music Sucks- Winterskl 2012: I’d Like To Buy A Vowel- Winterskl 2012: Who’s Yer Daddy?- Winterskl 2012: Live Free & ‘Skol- Winterskl 2012: Passport to Stupidity!- Winterskl 2012: Vail Still Sucks!- Winterskl 2012: Because We Can- Winterskl 2012: Gluten-Free Since 1951- Winterskl 2012: Or Else the Terrorists Win.- Winterskl 2012: Shut Up & Party Already- Winterskl 2012: No Stinkin’ BadgesAnd to anyone I might have offended – get over yourself. It’s Winterskl fer chrissake! Hey, there’s another one!- Winterskl 2012: Get Over Yourself.See you around!Mark ThomasGlenwood Springs

Trash in Glenwood Springs causing more bear conflicts than usual


Glenwood Springs is seeing more bear conflicts than any other area in the Roaring Fork Valley. “Glenwood is probably the busiest area from Vail to Aspen for bears. I don’t exactly know why,” said one Colorado Parks and Wildlife game warden. “It’s usually Aspen — they’re usually the busiest, but for this year it seems to be Glenwood.”
