Special to the DailyLinda and Don Wagner of Frisco write: 'We were married on Grays Peak on July 1, 1978. For our 30th wedding anniversary we climbed Grays on July 1, 2008 with our poodle, Chloe.' Congratulations, you two kids!

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that has little to add to the conversation today, so we’ll let our readers carry the ball.


We have an Angel alert!! Angel alert!! Tom Dickey, the assistant football coach at Summit High School writes:

“I sending this letter to say ‘Thanks’ to all the people who stopped on Fremont Pass on July 3 to help and give first aid to the young men who were injured in the rollover accident that day.

It was amazing to me the number of trained personnel who arrived on the scene and immediately began assisting before any emergency personnel arrived. I’m sorry I didn’t thank each you individually before you left, but your assistance was greatly appreciated.

All the boys suffered only minor injuries and will be fine.

As their football coach, I can’t thank you enough for your help. I also have two blankets that were left at the scene.

If they belong to you please contact me at Summit High School.

Thanks again.”

Well done, you highway heroes!


We have a couple of shout-outs for some Summit County students making us proud off in college.

Macaela M. Holmes of Frisco was named to the dean’s list at Grinnell College in Iowa, and Dillon resident Katherine Orlin earned similar honors at Northeastern University in Boston. Way to hit the books, you two!

The only dean’s list we here at World Headquarters made was for double-secret probation. Sigh.
