Hey, Spike! bids bye-bye to 3 beauties

Alex and Lori De Angelis

Lori De Angelis, formerly known as Lori Price, is moving south – way south – to the town of Nosara, Costa Rica, on the Pacific Ocean side of the Nicoya Peninsula.

Lori describes the place as an upscale, but still quaint beach surf resort with plenty of opportunity.

“I have been there three times and decided to move after investing in a few beach condos and a commercial project where we are building a retail center and condominiums off the main coastal road, south of Tamarindo,” she says.

“During this project I will be the contact and ground person for the investors, keeping the lines of communication open and staying on top of schedules and budgets (similar to selling ads, don’t you think?) as we build,” the bubbly Lori explains.

“I plan on selling real estate with a friend who has been in the area for 30 years and is well-established. I have made friends with many of the locals and families in the town of Nosara and they are patiently awaiting my arrival. The people are happy, friendly and full of love. They don’t have the everyday stress we Americans do,” states Lori.

“As my son Sage always tells me, ‘The less you have the less you have to worry about.’ The natives down there do not have much materially, but sure appreciate everything about life. I look forward to slowing down and learning from them,” Lori says.

“This is a big change for me as I have been in Summit County for close to 22 years and in Colorado 35 years total,” adds Lori.

Lori sold ads for the long-gone Summit Sentinel, and is wrapping up a similar advertising sales career for Comcast in Silverthorne.

Accompanying her will be daughter Alex, a 19-year-old completing her CNA in nursing, who is interested launching a medical clinic in the retail center for locals and visitors.

Sage, 26, graduated from Fort Lewis College in Durango, specializing in environmental studies, anthropology, and sustainable living, along with health and wellness. He plans on hosting a wellness retreat in Nosara in January, that will include yoga and other health perspectives.

The Colorado Design Center, next to the Balance Sheet on Seventh in Frisco, is open for business.

A trio of creative entrepreneurs have combined forces to cover your interior design needs, says Wendy Yates, a designer for Abigail-Elise Interiors.

She is joined by Kim Cancelosi of Cancelosi Studio, and Trim Pro’s John C. Van Der Vaart IV and Fritz Hubbard. Good luck to all.

Some folks we’ve spotted out and about recently have included Bill and Charlie Trotter, Mark and Mary Waldman of Hotel Frisco; Mike, Maggie and Kelly Smith, and road cyclists CJ Julin and Danny “Amos” Moroz.


As promised and announced, there was a party to bid adieu to Julie Biller at the Backcountry Brewery.

Hosting were the father and son team of Woody and Ryan Van Gundy, co-owner and bartender, respectively.

A good number of Summiteers turned out to toast local tennis doubles star Julie, who’s moving back to Virginia. A good time was had by all.
