Special to the Daily/Tim Tedore Residents of the XXXX trailer park at County Road 450 north of Breckenridge reacted Wednesday to the news a developer has big plans for the property.

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column with something to get off its chest – namely the cat that crawled up there while we were sleeping.”At least he wasn’t sleeping on your head,” the Summit Up staffers tell us, noting that’s what most of their cats do.

Also, the moon’s name is the Moon, just as the sun is the Sun, and our planet is the Earth. There’s also some chat room stuff about astronomy magazines having contests to come up with a name for the Moon, but it appears most people are happy with the boring old name.Sorry, Cap’n. Looks like you’re out on a limb with this one.

***That’s all for this lovely Sunday, ladies and gentlemen. Tell us what was sleeping on your chest when you woke up at, fax at (970) 668-0755 or just snore on the voicemail at (970) 668-3998, ext. 237.We’re out shopping for lint rollers …
