Congratulations to the “A Colossal Fourth” planning committee for a well planned and executed 4th of July celebration. I have received positive comments from community members on how much they enjoyed the event (and some even able to see the fireworks from their backyard). In this issue, James Shaw continues his well-researched article on recycling (page 27). The Vail Voice is fortunate to have our gifted volunteer writers, and we want to highlight the fact that we do have an online presence (http://www.thevailvoice.com) as well as a Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/thevailvoice) or you can search for The Vail Voice on your Facebook page. Of special note is the fact that we will be able to include expanded versions of the articles in the print edition, to also include extra photos (as applicable).
