Smart and Very Pretty!  Just what the ECT folks like to see with the young ladies in our Community.  For a complete list of Comcast’s 57 Colorado Academic Winners – (Click Here).

To Comcast:  It did not escape the notice of the ECT –your recent Rate Increase targeted at Comcast Business Class – Internet Subscribers…ECT also pleased to see some of that $$$ coming back into our Community – to help our local Students.

WOW!  These young ladies in our Community – are really amazing!  Academically, Ms. Gruber, Ms. Whitney, the winners on the Vail Christian High School Academic team (Click Here)  And Athletically too! Lady World Cup Champs – Ms. Shiffrin and Ms. Vonn.

Come on local guys!! Competitively speaking…we need more of you local guys to “kick it up a notch”.

The ECT folks think we need more young guys in Eagle County like Michael and brother Greg El-Bitar both recognized by the ECT as our recent and local Eagle Scouts!  (Click Here)

Let’s Go Local Guys!  These ladies are Zooming by you on the Ski Slopes, and in the Classroom Too!

 

Meanwhile…our Academic Achievers vs. Say What?

Now this is Scary…unless your IQ is in the low double digits.

Consider:  Apple’s iPad product became a remarkable WORLD WIDE success due in a large part to it’s practical and EASY – USER INTERFACE.  Most folks can just pick it up and figure out how to do the simple and basic things on their own.  That’s why Apple was able to sell Millions of these iPad things!!

Now CMC offers an (Intermediate Course?) in how to use it?  HUH?  Will this course be populated with Students who prefer Velcro based sneakers because they never figured out – how to tie their own shoes!  YIKES!  Seems (per the course description below) seems the “Intermediate Velcro Students” – need to be reminded to bring their iPad to Class too….Sheesh!

Make No Mistake:  The ECT folks love our Colorado Mountain College Campuses here in Eagle County, Colorado!

CMC offers (many+1) Courses – that develop skill sets important to our local Economy.  Examples Abound:  Culinary Courses for future Executive Chef’s, Fire Fighting Courses, Paramedic Courses, Accounting, Medical Office – Insurance, Billing and Coding…just to name a few.

CMC just released their Summer 2015 Class Schedule loaded with Interesting new and continuing Courses.  (Click Here) to download your PDF copy of the new Summer 2015 Course Guide.  Academic Caution suggested – if you’re meeting the folks on Campus that prefer Velcro to Laces – on their sneakers!  Yikes!

 

Meanwhile a fair question for Avon….Just what constitutes an “Emergency” in Avon these days…

Perhaps a $2 Million Dollar Cost Overrun on a new Avon Music Stage that was “only” supposed to cost ~$1.5 Million to begin with?

Nope.

Here is what the current leadership at the Town of Avon – considers their current “Emergency”.

ECT folks delighted to read that the Town of Avon is maintaining their Towns Infrastructure.  ECT just wishes the Town would choose their Adjectives a bit more carefully in the future.
