Attending two Summit social events in recent days made for some fun.

Most recent was Precision Ski and Golf’s season-ending on-mountain party at Copper Mountain on a very hot Wednesday.

Some of those attending included principals Jimbo Deines and Linda Simon, Seth Bartley, Paul Bell, Bruce A. Lew, Annie Brewster, Mark “Blackie” Black, Scott “Scooter” McDill, Derek Scaletta, Shaun Bishop, Brenda Herman, Alena Josefiova, Janice Parrish, Denny and Cheryl Parkinson, Harlow Perrigo, Dan Berggren, John Drabik, Mike McQuarrie, Tim Mc Donald, Nick Pollard, George Casaletta, Todd Casey, and those helpful Ski Patrollers Thomas Creighton and Rocky Miles.


Another soc-biz function was the open house for the Colorado Design Center owned by Wendy Yates and Artikle furniture designer and builder John Van der Vaart IV

On hand for the opening, located adjacent to the Balance Sheet in Frisco on Seventh Avenue was this sampling of folks:

Suzanne Swenson, Adolph Zimmerman, Blake Shutler, Yvette Sirbu, Brenda and Greg Poulter, Kristin Corsette, Brian and Holly Bradley, Dave and Trish Lemnah, Linda Simon and Jim Deines, Rey and Caroline Jou, Rob Philippe, Mandy Bender, Alison Mathes, Melissa Koll, Tom and Wendy Fellner, Brenda and Rob Hughey, Kelly Myer, Brian Diebel, Diana Thompson, and Zach Johnson.

“Within Artikle we conceptualize the designs together,” says Wendy. “John heads up manufacturing and I head up marketing and sales.”Wendy also owns Abigail-Elise Interiors, a design firm within the design center. Contact Wendy and John at: http://www.codesigncenter.-com


Hey, Spike! and Mary got to hang around with their young niece, Betsy Staby, who came out again from Minneapolis with fiance Mike Sluis. They’ll be married on July 31.

Joining them here for a few days were Margaret Yoste of Nashville, (“Nashvegas,” as she calls it), and Kris Nenovich of Chanhassen, Minn.


Mary was up in Breckenridge on Thursday for a spell in Dr. John Warner’s dental chair.

We spotted Rob Neyland, Kim Stevenson, Phyllis Martinez, and Steve Lapinsohn visiting the popular mayor’s practice.


In as the manager of the Frisco Fine Art Gallery is Eugeniu Ursu, who hails from Eastern Europe. He notes gallery owners Patrick and Paul Koentges, a son and father team, are now displaying a metal multi-dimensional sculpture by Dale Montagne of Silverthorne.


Out enjoying the recent spring weather we saw Joel and Amy Levy, Jeanne Brown, Laurie Cushner, Laura Johnson, Jere Lord, Darrell Thomas, Tom Flanagan, and Rob Huggins.


Miles F. Porter IV, nicknamed “Spike,” a Coloradan since 1949, is an Army veteran, former Climax miner, graduate of Adams State College, and a resident of Summit County since 1982. An award-winning investigative reporter, he and wife Mary E. Staby owned newspapers in Summit County for 20 years.
