Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column starting to see those campaign signs pop up all over the place.With 2008 only about a week away, we are noticing these signs popping up on street corners, windows and people’s yards. We have always had a slight problem with these sings and find them to be sort of a nuisance. We follow politics just as much as the next guy, and are interested to hear where all the candidates stand on the issues most important to us, however, in this day and age with the Internet and TV ads are the grassroots sings really necessary?
Has anyone really ever drove by one of those signs and thought, “hey, that candidate has a sign posted in front of City Market, I think I’ll vote for them!”?Sure, we suppose having a sign in ones front yard shows that they support a certain candidate, but, what’s wrong with a good ‘ol bumper sticker? It gets the point across and its much more subtle. ***
Now, we have an e-mail from Sandra DeGarie who works in guest services at Breckenridge Ski Resort, she would like to pay tribute to a certain avalanche dog that patrols at the resort. Sandra writes: “Check out this enthusiastic avalanche dog at Breckenridge Ski Resort! His name is “Kodi’ and his owner is Jessica Doran. Each morning at about 8:15 a.m., the two make their way to the chair lift, Kodi yelping in excitement and eager to attack the mountain. It is a sight to see! One morning I saw Kodi looking back over the chair seat looking down as they rose up the mountain…I tried to capture that again, but did not quite make it.”
