Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column out searching the county for a missing Texan cat.

Anybody seen Mittens? No, not the glove-like things, the cat. There’s a $500 reward available for info leading to the return of the gray cat with white paws and chest that disappeared in the Keystone area. Mittens has a Texas tag on the collar, but you can call (970) 468-6968 if you know the cat’s whereabouts.


Paul Rickmyer wants to thank all the businesses that let him put collection jars in their establishments. Paul’s mother, Donna Stephenson, passed away Dec. 18. The collections were to help defray the cost of her burial.

“She would have given them her last dollar,” Paul told us. “It’s a shame. She raised seven kids by herself. But, I’ve asked God to forgive them.”

If, by chance, someone wants to avoid any bad karma, remit the funds to Paul at P.O. Box 258, Silverthorne, CO 80498.
