Reporters Notebook

“Reporters Notebook” is a roundup of quotes, notes, bits and bites gleaned from meetings, events, press releases, e-mails or simply overheard on the street. Some of it is just for fun, and some of it is newsworthy tidbits that did not find a home in the other pages of the paper. Look for “Reporters Notebook” each Monday in the Summit Daily News.

“That’s the thing, when you’re offense is kind of dominating a game, not to get lackadaisical and keep your focus. That’s what you got to do. If they get one shot off, you’ve got to make the one save.” – Jon Greco, Frisco bar owner and goalie for the Breckenridge Soccer Club, on his role in his team’s 2-0 win over Football Club Bounty in the 24th annual Breckenridge Soccer Tournament Saturday

“Sure, I like crawling around the sewer.” – Tom Long, on whether or not he’d like to join his fellow county commissioners in touring a Summit Cove drainage project

“At the meeting the other night, we had no idea Dillon was going to do that. If you’re going to annex Copper Mountain, let us know. We won’t stand in your way. We just want to know.” – County commissioner Gary Lindstrom, at a joint meeting with Frisco council on Dillon’s proposal to annex Keystone

“Today Dillon. Tomorrow the world.” – Long

“Commissioner Lindstrom, he doesn’t have a life and he likes watching this 24-7.” – County Commissioner Bill Wallace, regarding Interstate 70 TV

“That’s right. I watch paint dry.” – Lindstrom

“I talked to Mike the other day in Breckenridge and when we were done he said, “Thanks for talking with me, Bill.'” – Lindstrom

“Well, I want to thank Bill Lindstrom for coming today.” – Frisco Mayor Bob Moscatelli.

During a discussion about whether or not to enforce the town’s parking regulations, Moscatelli said he’d heard of a town in Wyoming that warned visitors of parking violations with a flier that started out with “Howdy, partner”:

“I was thinking of saying “Hey, dude.'” – Frisco Police Chief Tom Wickman

“I’m surprised they even have a parking problem in Wyoming.” – Frisco Councilmember Tom Connolly

During the same discussion, Chief Wickman warned council members they should expect the most complaints from Denver and out-of-state guests who park overnight illegally and are ticketed and towed.

“But that wouldn’t happen to me if I drove into Denver and parked illegally.” – Moscatelli

“Well, they’d steal your tires first, and then they’d ticket you.” – Wickman
