Summit Up


Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column going Cartoon Network in Wednesday’s print edition.

Starting today, you’ll notice a new comic strip that is unique to Summit Up and contributed by a local stay-at-home dad who wants to entertain our readers on a weekly basis. We said “Sure!” before weeping in his lap at the joy of having another reader want to be involved in what we do.

Anyway, we hope you enjoy “County Commons” and we’re interested in your thoughts. E-mail, and enjoy the rest of the world’s only daily column.


Samantha from Breckenridge sent in an Angel Alert! Angel Alert!, which always makes our day here at the Corporate Suites.

She writes: “I was hoping you could print an Angel Alert for all the folks who live up on Peak 7 who cared enough to stop and check if I was OK as they saw my car in a ditch on the side of the road this evening. Unfortunately, I hit a patch of black ice and slid off the road into the snow filled drainage ditch. A special thanks to the four hispanic gentlemen who stopped and tried to help, and a gigantic thanks to Jeremiah who will forever have great Karma for helping tow out the car and get it back to my house.”

Halos and wings, on their way …


To continue the touchy-feely Wednesday, L.W. Slater from Cypress, Texas, sent us another Angel Alert! Angel Alert!

Mr. Slater writes: “Cheers to officers Larry Waetjen of Frisco and Glenn Langhlans of Breckenridge. Over Thanksgiving their dedicated efforts to recover my son’s computer and carrying case, including his passport, checkbook and iPod left on a shuttle van, were exemplary. While the shuttle service seemed nonplussed about the disappearance, Larry secured the passenger manifest and interviewed everyone who was on the van at that time. Early Saturday morning the call arrived that the case and all contents mysteriously appeared ‘somewhere in Breckenridge.’ Someone had ‘mistakenly’ picked up the case and contacted the shuttle service who immediately returned it to my son. No charges were filed. We have absolutely no doubt that without officer Waetjen and Langhlans rapid response the computer would not have been returned. We wish to publicly thank them for their efforts. Our son’s computer contained his business information and he is deeply grateful for it’s return. Thanks officers!”

Let’s see … yep, we have a few more halos and wings. We need to order more, it looks like. We wonder if Heaven has the same shipping issues that we have as we get close to the holidays.


It’s Wednesday, which also happens to be the day of the SDN employee party. So if we’re not around late in the day … we’ll be in touch on Thursday.
