BRECKENRIDGE – Summit Stage officials will host a public meeting at the Breckenridge Town Hall Wednesday to discuss the bus system’s draft operations plan for 2004-2009.

The meeting is a follow-up from two open houses held in January and March where Stage officials solicited comments about how to improve bus service. The purpose of next week’s meeting is to present the draft plan and receive comments.

The plan is available online at

Cub Scouts thank all their supporters

Once again, I would like to thank all the people in our community who regularly take time out of their busy days for our kids.

This year the Cub Scouts visited the kitchen at the Village at Breckenridge, courtesy of the banquet chefs and Mary Lou LiPuma. The Cubs had delicious smoothies at Cafe Breck while learning some good domestic cooking skills.

A heartfelt thank you to the Frisco Historical Society for a really fun tour of the Old Schoolhouse in Frisco’s Historic Park and all its wonderfully restored buildings and artifacts. It is an amazing collection everyone should take time to see.

Also, to Breckenridge Elementary School principal Rebecca Wilson and fourth-grade teacher Mike Rupert, thank you for taking the time to present to the kids the value of education and how the school structure works.

Thanks to Mr. Bill at CMC for a great pottery class and for the pinch pots we made in hopes of promoting budding artists.

Thank you to Chris at Breckenridge Automotive on Airport Road. Chris is not only Summit’s best mechanic but someone who regularly does workshops and demonstrated an oil change and more for us.

And also thank you to Tammy Hales at Genuine Fitness Studio on Airport Road, a new fitness facility, who worked the kids out and gave them a good early start on building good bodies. Check her studio out.

Thank you to Summit Huts for an excellent hut trip and to all the leaders who work so hard to arrange wonderful campouts and take care of business for the kids. They put in a lot of time.

Our sincere appreciation to all of you, and here’s to next year!

Safety Fair helped with car seats

I would like to thank the town of Silverthorne, the Silverthorne Police Department and, in particular, Mark Watson, Anne McNelly, Shelly Almroth from Central Mountains Safe Kids and Jackie Pike from the Red, White and Blue Fire Department, who recently helped me install new car seats in my vehicle.

Kudos to the town of Silverthorne, which sponsored the recent Safety Fair and takes great care in publicly assisting and educating parents about car seat safety.
