Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world's only daily column that is as happy as a clam today since it seems all we have are favorable and happy dispatches to pass along. (On a side note, how happy exactly is a clam? If he or she is not all that happy, does that mean we're not happy?)Breckenridge's Phillip Gallagher sent over this thank-you note concerning the recent GOODness Epidemic. Gallagher had this to say:"Summit County Youth (SCY) unleashed the GOODness Epidemic from March 10-16. It was a huge success of plotting GOODness in our county for a week. On behalf of the SCY staff, volunteers, students and families, we would like to thank those responsible for helping SCY continue to invest in the lives of the youth of Summit County. "The following businesses and families gave their generous support: Grand Lodge on Peak 7; Colvin Construction: Amy Black/Dexter; Pinnacle Mountain Homes; Summit Foundation; Goods; Jim & Paula Stover/Stover Granite; CC&S Construction; Gary & Nancy Carlston; Martyn Plumbing & Heating; Centennial Bank; Blue River Sports; Mountain Wave; Chris & Dawn Banas; Kevin & Kristie Berkley; Eric & Shannon Dahman/America?s Mortgage; Joy of Sox & Excessories; Chris and Kathy Knackstedt; Tony Lord Excavation; Hyon Family; Byers Family; Veeneman Family; Roy Family; Powell Associates; Rockridge Building Co.; Rose Family; Thebeau Family; Begley Family; & Gidney Family."Well, that's about all we've got today.
