Motocross area closed for mud season

SUMMIT COUNTY – The landfill motocross area near Dillon Cemetery is temporarily closed for mud season.

The county-owned property west of the landfill is closed to motorized and mechanized uses, including dirt bikes, mountain bikes and ATVs.

The closure, which takes effect immediately, is designed to prevent damage that can occur during spring runoff to the motocross area and nearby trails.

This seasonal closure includes all county property between Dillon Cemetery and the county landfill, including the Oro Grande Trail. The county landfill road and access to Frey Gulch Road east of the landfill is not affected by the temporary closure. The county will notify the public when the area reopens.


New “Rules’ at the Speakeasy

BRECKENRIDGE – “The Rules,” an art display by Joe Scherer, and film opening reception will take place from 4:30-6:30 p.m. tonight at the Speakeasy Theatre in Breckenridge. Scherer uses many media to create abstractions in clay. Scherer said the event will be a “zen, pure-form thing.” DJs will be spinning house and hip-hop. There is no charge for the art show. Scherer’s art will be at the Speakeasy gallery until the theater closes.


Super Chicken says thanks

Given my propensity for verbosity and my inability to express myself verbally given the confines of my rooster suit, I feel I would be remiss in not thanking many people for electing me Breckenridge Town Fool 2003. It is an honor I am proud of, and I promise my constituents I will raise my own level of foolishness and jocularity accordingly in the coming year, and I encourage everyone to do the same!

Thanks to Amy and all the fun, cute, hot girls at the Maggie for letting me be Super Chicken, both on the mountain to promote the Maggie’s Tuesday Wing and Karaoke Night, and off the mountain to promote my own interests in general town Tom Foolery.

Thanks also to all my friends at the Cafe Alpine for helping during the campaign, especially Valerie, Paul and Keith. Thanks to my corporate sponsors Buck and Kevin and every single human being who coughed up a buck or multiple bucks to get me elected. Thanks to Triza for being verbal when I couldn’t at the coronation ceremony – also, he was the best dancer at the party despite being only 5 years old. Thanks to C.J. for being simultaneously the driving force behind the entire event and a candidate. Thanks to all the other candidates for making me look so good.

Thanks to my dogs Killer and Einstein for making me laugh daily. Thanks to my tap dancing instructors Diane and Julia-Ann for being you. Thanks to my lovely wife for being Mrs. Town Fool officially now and unofficially for the last nine years, six months and 24 days. Thanks to the Summit Daily for printing this, and thanks to the academy S

With Love,

Super Chicken aka

The Town Fool aka Jay
