Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that now has a firm understanding that cigarette butts thrown out on the side of the road do not biodegrade.We know this because we spent part of the part of the day yesterday in a stylish orange vest, plucking sundry items of garbage from along Highway 9.But what we soon discovered is that it was absolutely fruitless to pick up all the cigarette butts from along the road side – we could only concentrate in the bigger stuff. So sad .. we went out there to clean the place up, and the sheer numbers of butts made real cleanup impossible.

Look, we used to be a part of the problem – we used to responsibly enjoy a Camel Light or two (or nine), and would even toss them out the window on occasion. But now, we have an entirely different take on it – and you should too.***Speaking of combustible materials, here’s a fire-related Alert Combo!!:

“The residents of Loveland Pass Village want to send a big Angel Alert!! to the Lake Dillon Fire Dept., Summit County Sheriff, Keystone Emergency Services and everyone else that responded to the fire burning behind our neighborhood. Thanks for the quick response. For the guy who started it … we’d like to send out a big Scum Alert!! – this is our home!! Keep our neighborhood safe and fire free.***Finally, another Smarty Pants Alert!! came across our busy wires today (like Mad Libs, actually).

It seems Charles Lockwood, of Breckenridge, is a sophomore at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcesrter, Mass., and has made the Dean’s List for the second semester of this past academic year. He is also a member of the Division 1 hockey team at the school as a goaltender.Kick save, and a beauty!***We out, still trying to catch the pig on the loose.
