Summit Up 4-29-10: Poop redemption edition

Deputy Dawg
Special to the Daily/Crystal Miller

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that’s eager to report some Western style Poop Justice. Avid readers may recall we published a Scum Alert! a week or so ago about a Summit County Sheriff’s deputy who allowed his K-9 dog to poop in a flower bed at Copper Mountain and did not pick it up. At the Tuesday morning meeting of the Summit County Rotary, Sheriff John Minor stood up and said the deputy had been identified, had a little talking-to and had been given some poop bags to make sure that, in the future, scoopage occured. Also, Sheriff Minor said the deputy was going to be assigned to a town clean-up day or the Carter Park poop-scoop as a way to atone for his lapse.

So we’re happy to hear that the original alert generated some positive action. We might say it’s because Sheriff Minor is up for reelection, but, then again, he’s running unopposed. Good to see someone do the right thing …

All of you other folks out there who let your dogs either poop unscooped or you let them run free, pooping willy-nilly all over the place: Repent! We’re sick of this sh**!


OK, here’s an Angel Alert! Angel Alert! going out to John Daisy, owner of Fatty’s Pizzeria in Breck. Sez here:

“Today he is holding a fundraiser for Little Red Schoolhouse. We are not certain, but he has been doing this for 13 or 14 years. All the proceeds he makes off of food sales from 4-10 this evening are donated to the nonprofit preschool. Anyone can dine in or order out and for the first time we are doing pre-orders. Call Fatty’s at 453-9802 and place your order (please call at least an hour in advance). So thank you to John Daisy for your support of Little Red Schoolhouse!”

Good stuff! We love Fatty’s and wish there was a Frisco version. Driving to Breck is just too much for us some days, especially with construction season starting!

Short on space today so we’ve gotta run. Ciao …
