Summit Up

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that can dance if we want to.

We haven’t been able to get this song stuck out of our head for two days.

We called the Breckenridge Police Department (we figured they’d know if it was legal to drive around town naked from the waist down) and while they had us on hold we were rocking out to that ’80s classic, Men Without Hats’ “Safety Dance.”

We don’t know if the po-po gets to pick which songs play on their phone system, but if they do, we find that to be a very rebellious selection. Rock on, Breck P.D.!

‘Cause if your friends don’t dance, and if they don’t dance, well, they’re no friends of mine …


Regretfully, we have two Scum Alerts!! Scum Alerts!! today.

First off, John tells us, some lame-o stole the Seniors’ “rummage sale” banner that was hung out by Highway 9 and County Road 1004. The seniors paid $60 for the banner and some bum probably stole it to advertise their own crappy yard sale. May the thief’s own sale be robbed.

This next piece of bad news was faxed to us anonymously from someone at Breck Central Lodging. Our correspondent was driving from Breck to Frisco Friday afternoon and observed a red Chevy truck pitch a cigarette out the window near the high school.

“Thought everyone knew we still have dry conditions up here in Summit Up Land as well as it is NOT COOL to throw trash out the window of your auto.”

This person also got the license plate number of this particular truck and, if they feel as strongly about this as we do, we urge them next time to drop a dime and report it. That’s what cell phones are for.


It’s Sunday and that’s about all we know. Tell us what you know at, fax at (970) 668-0755 or just record a little Telemundo on the voicemail at (970) 668-3998, ext. 237.

We’re out and out chillin’
