SUMMIT COUNTY Payton Weinman, 8, has a message for the next President of the United States:Dear Mr. New President,I just wanted to welcome you and tell you a few things. I wanted you to tell people to please stop littering. Littering is not good for the trees, the plants, and the animals because it is not good for their habitat. I also wish you would give everyone an adorable puppy with little wet noses, cute little paws and wagging tails. They might want an adorable hammster too! Thank you for working so hard and being our leader.From, Payton WeinmanWeinman was one of nearly two dozen local students who participated in the Dear Mr. New President contest sponsored by Early Childhood Options, which has forwarded the letters and drawings to Barack Obama and John McCain as well as elected officials in Colorado.We were really excited about how many kids turned out and were absolutely impressed with their ideas, said Johanna McDonald, Early Childhood Options program manager. Along with his pencil-figure drawing of houses and people, Jake Lowe, 7, wrote: Give water to the children in Iraq and medicine.Colter Andrews, 5, offered this advice: Could you please make more trees and no wars?
