Reporters’ Notebook

“Come on! We’re not hanging chads here in Summit County. If the county commissioners don’t get voting machines then I’m not voting for any one of them.” – David Cunningham, getting impatient while waiting for elections results Tuesday with fellow Democrats at the Backcountry Brewery. “If, in four years, they’re not out sooner then you can recall me.” – County Commissioner Bill Wallace, in response to Cunningham. Wallace won his bid for a third four-year term – his last since he is term-limited.”I am tired of hearing about red states and blue states. I would much rather think about the red, white and blue in all states.”- Vail Resorts chief Adam Aron, a Kerry supporter, speaking to the Denver Post.”Hey, put down your notebook, take off your reporter’s hat, and tell me – is this money or what?” – Copper Mountain director of marketing Ben Friedland in the American Eagle lift line Friday during Copper’s opening day. “We were just in L.A. working on a record deal, but I got out because the guy’s lawyer started looking like a loser. He reminded me of the Illuminati – an alien race of literate people.”- Carlton Pride, Charlie Pride’s son and the lead singer of reggae group, Carlton Pride and Zion.”Do you have some time to talk about the calendar?”- Summit Daily Reporter”If you want to hear some choice words, I’m printing the calendar right now. I’ve been at Copy Copy for 10 hours.”- David Weihnacht, Summit County Arts Council”It’s all about being conscious of what your body is doing. You’re are going so fast that you can’t think. Sometimes you think you can control gravity, but it doesn’t work that way. My best runs are when I get to the bottom and my coaches ask me what happened and I’m not really sure.” – Breckenridge 20-year-old Katie Uhlaender on skeleton racing, a unique winter sport that involves sliding face first on a sled down a bobsled track at speeds up to 80 miles per hour. Uhlaender qualified for the U.S. World Cup skeleton team on Oct. 31.
