Summit Up

Special to the Daily

Good morning and welcome to the world’s only daily column that’s wondering if anyone else noticed Jay Cutler hanging out in Breckenridge Wednesday night.When the Broncos’ starting quarterback walked into the Liquid Lounge, friends the writer was with identified him instantly, but relatively few others did.Standing within 10 feet of the millionaire without ever meeting him (I didn’t want to be that guy), I was happy for Jay that he was able to remain in relative obscurity, save a few cute girls with a camera and one or two avid fans. Not a lot of people in Breck recognize Jay Cutler is my conclusion.

What if John Elway walked into the LL? He would probably turn so many heads that he would never want to go in there in the first place.Here’s to Jay Cutler being a regular guy who likes to go out and have a few in the offseason, especially since the Broncos have had a very eventful last couple of months marked both by sorrow and various transactions, one of which sent Jake Plummer – Cutler’s predecessor – either to Tampa Bay or into retirement.***

From a celebrity sighting, we move on to an Angel Alert!! of particular note.Copper Mountain’s Carol Carini wrote in with these kudos for a Frisco police officer, directed at Frisco Police Chief Tom Wickman:”I am writing this letter to commend Officer Larry Waetien for helping a lady in distress. Coming out of the Frisco Post Office on Saturday, Feb. 24, I noticed I had a flat tire, and as luck would have it, I didn’t have my cell phone with me. I went back into the post office to ask if I could use their phone to make an 800 call to AAA. They told me they couldn’t let me use their phone, but a very nice Frisco resident offered to let me use her phone. I called AAA and they said they would be there to help me in 90 minutes. I waited two hours and was becoming very stressed because I had no means of communication to see if they were on their way, when Officer Waetien pulled into the post office. I approached him with my problem and immediately dialed AAA for me and they informed me they would be there in 15 minutes. Officer Waetien wasn’t satisfied with that, and he personally called the station AAA was coming from. Almost immediately, AAA was there and I thanked Officer Waetien for his help and said I would be OK now. He insisted on staying with me until my tire was changed and had me follow him to the Police Maintenance Facility to fully inflate my spare tire so he would be sure I would make it home safely.

“I can’t tell you how grateful I am to the Frisco Police Force, but especially to Officer Waetien for helping me in what was a very stressful situation. He was caring and kind and the Frisco Police Department and the Town of Frisco should be very proud, as I am, to have Officer Waetien serving the Town of Frisco.”***We out, looking to buy a drink for Brad Van Pelt.
