Summit Up

Shawn and Antonieta “Anto” Butler and their daughter Abril who will be 1 on Sunday, are the first family to occupy a single-family house in the new Gibson Heights affordable housing neighborhood. Shawn Butler has lived in Breckenridge for 10 years and works with the town’s water department. Anto works part-time at Skinny Winter Gifts on Main Street in town.

This is the family’s first time owning a single-family house, which in the High Country, is a real landmark for worker-bee families.

The single-family units at Gibson Heights are 2,443 square feet each and are three bedrooms, two baths. The houses come with unfinished basements – another bonus.

The $211,000 houses are deed restricted to appreciation rates no greater than the rate of inflation to assure that the next generation of buyer can afford a resale. The deed restriction also protects the town’s $1 million investment in the project.

It’s not settled, but there’s a good chance the Vienna Boys Choir could be booked into Summit County for a November show.

The Breckenridge Music Institute is working on the deal with assistance from co-sponsor, the Colorado Mountain College Center for Excellence in the Arts.

The performance would take place at the Summit High School Auditorium and would be a guaranteed sellout, so keep a close watch on this one.


Summit-Lake Dillon Optimist Club members are pounding the streets with their annual Ski Pass Raffle. First prize is a choice of a season pass to Arapahoe Basin, Copper Mountain or one of two Keystone-Breckenridge-Vail-Beaver Creek passes.

Second prize is your choice of the three remaining passes. Third prize is a choice of the remaining two and fourth place is what’s left.

Tickets cost $1 each or $5 for six.

Bill Pelham is heading up the fund drive. Look for sales tables at heavily traveled retail locations. If an Optimist member doesn’t cross your path, you can get tickets by stopping by the Barnyard pet supply store at 104 E. Main St. The winning tickets will be pulled on Oct. 2. Ticket printing costs were underwritten by the Moose Creek Outfitters store in Frisco.
