Mr. and Mrs. David Parmley have the honor of announcing the marriage of their daughter, Emy,

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column tackling mountain pine-beetle infestation with our bare hands and a shovel. We planted a tree. It was a little one that appeared on our desk one day last week. Somebody else didn’t want it, and we figured the only way to act globally is to start locally. Ha, ha.We first put the 2-foot-long sapling in a pitcher in our bedroom window, but it just didn’t seem right. Then arrived a sunny day, so we polished our green thumb, dug a hole and gave the tree a new home. We aren’t sure what type of tree it is, but it’s got little green needles and is probably in the pine family. It’s nice to think about the impact possible – this tree could outlive us. So that’s positive. ***We have a Smarty Pants Alert!! Smarty Pants Alert!!Frisco’s own Matthew Robert Bowers – a Summit High School grad – was one of two Bowdoin College students awarded the Munno Neuroscience Prize this month during the college’s annual Honors Day ceremony.

He is a member of the men’s soccer, skiing and crew teams.Bowdoin College is a liberal arts school in Brunswick, Maine, about 25 miles north of Portland. ***Well now, you may have heard they upped the statewide price for vending-machine food a few weeks ago. The SU Corporate Suites were not immune to that evil, and we are making a statement by only purchasing caffeinated soda. They will not be getting a whole dollar for a pack of M&M’s that’s not even as full as the packs they sold 10 years ago, when it was $0.50. But yeah, our Mountain Dew purchases have gone up a bit. It’s Friday, and we’re watering our new backyard landscaping.
