Summit Up

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that’s too interested in frolicking to be sitting here at a computer making up nonsense.

We wrote the other day about it being skipping weather. We’ve discovered another lost pleasure of childhood: blowing bubbles. We spent a good portion of the afternoon blowing bubbles on the staffers in the office. Only a couple complained that they’d end up sticky when it all dried. Most everyone was happy to have the Lawrence Welk shower, which further reinforced our conviction that we need to get out-of-doors.

But that didn’t happen. So, to catch the last bit of sunlight, we’re going to cut short today, give you a few news items and pictures and call it a day. Hope you don’t mind.


Mark and Marty Adolph of Dillon wanted us to let you know that their daughter Amber Stewart is graduating from the University of Colorado at Boulder next month – magna cum laude! Mom said she cried when she got the news, she was so proud. Amber’s completing a double major in environmental science and computer science. Congrats! Amber.

A proud-parent contribution also came in from Terri and Brent Johnson in Blue River. They tell us if we log on to and then click on the “awards and honors” icon, we’ll see Grant Johnson, a Breck elementary, Summit Middle School and Summit High School grad. He graduates from Colorado State University this year. Congrats! Grant.


Enough already! It’s Saturday. Let us know how your snow is melting at, fax at (970) 668-0755 or just drip water on the voicemail at (970) 668-3998, ext. 237.

We’re out engineering our truck exhaust so it blows bubbles …
