Summit Up

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column sorry about the incorrect prediction on Wednesday night’s hockey game.

That’s what you get for guessing. Well, OK, sometimes you get a cheap, Taiwanese-made stuffed pink elephant or a kewpie doll when you guess. But not this time. This time, we got a sinking feeling in our stomach.

MILLIONS OF SUMMIT UP READERS: Don’t you suppose you’re wasting a lot of time and energy on something as insignificant as hockey, especially considering there are starving people in the world, babies stricken with disease and such?

That might be true, dear readers, if we weren’t talking about hockey, for cryin’ out loud and, besides, if there’s one thing that helps us forget about our ballooning, malnourished bellies and the parasites crawling on us, it’s a hard body check into the boards behind the goal.


Honesty always gets you an Angel Alert!! Angel Alert!! Breck Associates’ Mike Krueger happened upon some clothes and important work information along the Dillon Dam Road. Instead of leaving it, swiping it, or selling it on e-Bay, Mike tracked down the owner, Becky, and returned her things to her. Becky says thank you, Mike, and we’re sending your karmic blueprint off to the soul factory to see if they can’t make more like you.

Now, our only question, Becky: How exactly does one come to leave his/her clothes on the side of the Dam Road?


We know we said we’re through predicting the future, and we are, but we just have to mention this to you no matter what the weather ends up being like today.

Sitting here Thursday afternoon, a good source passed on to us a note he got from the National Weather Service. You’ll be heartbroken to know it was a Winter Storm Warning for Summit County. As of 1:30 p.m. Thursday, they were warning us we could have 5 to 9 inches of snow on the ground by the time you’re reading this.

That, our friends, is why we love Summit Up Land so much. We can’t tell if it’s the weather that makes us schizophrenic or the other way around.


Congrats! to Nilsson Warren, or should we say Marine Corps Pfc. Warren. He’s the son of Dillon’s Margaret Cushing and he just graduated, with honors we’ll note, from the corps’ basic electrician course at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. Pfc. Warren is a 1999 grad of Summit High and joined the Marines the following year.

Hopefully, he’ll finish up his duties and get back here so he can fix these florescent-turned-strobe lights above our desk.
