Summit Up
Special to the Daily/Thomas Zieba

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the worlds’ only daily column letting everyone know that patience pays off.

The District Attorney’s office sent this little ditty across on Friday, proclaiming the fact that more than $2,000 was returned to a local ” nine years after the money was stolen.

See, in 1999, a lady named Brigitte Hopper rented a home with a stolen credit card number and since then, the authorities have been looking for her. Hopper evaded arrest until this past Thanksgiving, when she was arrested in Texas on a warrant.

After spending 10 days in jail, Hopper agreed to send a check with the full amount of restitution and, this week, our DA received the check.

To the person receiving the check, we (and the thief) say, “Merry Christmas.”


In the spirit of the holidays, Cheryl Tatro would like to send an Angel Alert! Angel Alert! to the two men who pushed her car out of a small snowbank between the Frisco Town Hall and the post office Saturday morning. Thanks to these angels, she got her Christmas packages mailed on time.

To the rescuers: Expect some halos and wings under the tree on Tuesday …


Here’s a Scum Alert! Scum Alert! phoned in by a resort employee living in the Tenderfoot employee housing at Keystone. The names are being withheld to protect the innocent!

Anyway, this guy says there’s been absolutely no plowing over at Tenderfoot, and conditions are getting pretty slick over there! “A 2-wheel drive car has like no chance of getting out at this point” our correspondent reports. He also says he’s complained, but that he’s been told “it’s just what living in a high-alpine environment” is all about, and that he’ll need to “wait until January” ” whatever that means.

Ouch …


It’s Saturday, and we’re finding beds for friends, relatives and whoever else decides to pop in during the holidays. If you need us in the meantime, you can find us sleeping under our desks …
