Summit Up 10-3-12: Trying to find where Frisco went
Ryan Summerlin October 2, 2012
Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that is sending a shout-out to two of the hardest workers we know. Summit Up staffers Kathryn Turner and Caddie Nath are both celebrating their birthdays today, so if you see either lady out and about wish them well and give them a big high-five from us.
Changing gears a bit, it seems that all the hullabaloo about the new mapping app on Apple’s new iPhone has reached the High Country. If you haven’t been paying attention, the release of iOS6 recently brought with it a new maps app that has had more than its fair share of issues and glitches. Breck’s Don Woodard happened to notice the other day that Frisco was now shown at Copper Mountain and came up with a few implications. He writes thusly:
“The people in the old Frisco will need to move if they want to stay in Frisco.
“Obviously a move by Copper Mountain Ski Co. to increase the number of visitors.
“Old Frisco town employees may need to reapply for their jobs in what was the old Copper Mountain.
“Old Frisco town government should send all their tax revenue to the new Frisco.
“There is obviously no negotiating on all of this because it is what Apple, Inc. wants, and they are very important.
“Things could have been worse, Breckenridge could have just as easily been relocated to Mississippi.”
Well, there you have it. It seems that just when you think you know a place, some computer programmer a 1,000 miles away lets you know that you were way off.
If we would have known that Frisco was really a part of Copper, we would have changed all our business cards from listing our address for the SU Corporate Suites as “40 W. Main St., Frisco” to “The base of Super Bee.” That’s definitely cooler.
Well, that’s all we got for today. Have a great Wednesday.
