Summit Up


Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column always stoked to share the news when locals really step up to help area schools in need.Yeah, we know … usually ye faithful readers tune in to this here space every day for fart jokes, humorous quips of slices of life, and of course for the obligatory Angel and Scum Alerts.We just felt we’d kick off today’s edition with some seriously Good Karma points for one local business.Seems the Po’ Boys aren’t so poor!The family-friendly Cajun restaurant on Main Street in Frisco recently announced that thanks to the unbelievable turnout at the Summit County Preschool Fundraiser on Thursday, March 22, they will be donating a whopping $1000 to the school!According to Po’ Boys Owner Dan Fallon, the recent funder was an opportunity to show appreciation for the people who are so dedicated to teaching our young kids.”It’s important to know that when we can’t be with our children, they are being very well taken care of and that the resources are there to sustain the school’s programs,” Fallon said, through the magic of a press release.”We are thrilled by the number of people that came to Po’ Boys last Thursday when we promised 20 percent of all dinner (from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.) sales to go to Summit County Preschool and we certainly send out big thanks to everyone who did – it’s the enthusiasm of these people that made it happen!”Fallon will be presenting a $1000 check to Summit County Preschool on Wednesday, March 28, at 11:30 a.m. at the Preschool. But you should go into his fine establishment sometime soon, order some extra jambalaya, or crawish etouffee, or a Hurricane, or a Mardi Gras king cake, or some shrimp and grits, or a cold Dixie beer … ummmm, what we’re we saying again?***We hate to do it, but we’ve got to switch it up and get to some scumminess …This here Scum Alert!! comes from over Hoosier Pass:”Last night, as I was taking my hound on his nightly hike above Alma, I could not believe what I saw. On Aspen Street, just above town, just on the edge of some of the sweetest singletrack, some jackass dumped their construction trash right on the street and in the accompanying drainage.”I suppose that we have folks amongst us who are actually blind since the scenery up there is so amazing that it would, in theory, deter said jackasses from dumping trash along this road.”So, here is what I am proposing. I personally do not have a truck, nor do I have a means to deliver the construction material to a facility that will take it. If I can get someone to volunteer their truck and delivery services, then I will definitely come and load the truck for them. Please give me a call at (970) 485-0936 to take me up on this offer.” – Beth from AlmaOooh, a Scum Alert, a request for assistance, and a volunteering of effort. We like these kinds of constructive items. Get on it people!***We out, worried about our singletrack.
