Special to the DailyDaphne Schroth, Susan Robertson, Amy Lange and Gini Bradley recently completed a half-marathon in Carlsbad, California.

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column sending out a bulk order for angel wings and halos!We’ve had so many good deeds going on in the county it just makes our little hearts sing!And here’s another Angel Alert!! Angel Alert!! going to Linda who lives in Silverthorne from Lisa Wallace who lives in Frisco.”Hey all!,” Lisa writes. “After a great day of sun on the mountain, I found myself locked out of my car in the parking lot in Copper Mountain. Without thinking, Linda, who serves as a Copper ambassador, offered me a ride home. As we talked, she revealed that one of the reasons why she is an ambassador is so that she can help others. So, for her, giving me a ride home was no big deal. For me, it saved a ton of money, changed my frame of mind and completely made my week. It is the kindness of people like her who make this world beautiful and I just wanted to thank her for her generosity.”

Consider thee angelized, Linda. Keep up the good work!***Ellen Mandel asked us to pass along a safety message to our readers. She thinks we can help reduce the number of car accidents:”Encourage people to keep their vehicle lights and windows clean so they can see and be seen,” Ellen writes. “I have seen vehicle windows and lights so encrusted with road mush that they are almost totally eclipsed. All it takes is to keep some window cleaner spray and paper towels or rags handy inside the car, not the trunk. When stopping while doing errands it would be convenient and safe to clean up. Keep a trash bag in the car, too, for the used towels and rags.”

We hope that makes a difference, Ellen.And that “road mush”? It’s called magnesium chloride, the bane of the world of drivers and environmentalists.***Here’s a Job Well Done! Job Well Done! to Daphne Schroth, Susan Robertson, Amy Lange and Gini Bradley, pictured somewhere on this page and who recently completed a half-marathon in Carlsbad, Calif. Thirteen grueling miles along the beautiful Pacific Ocean! We have very little sympathy, but we’re still proud of y’all anyway!

Keep up your healthy ways, ladies!***We’re out, looking for angels. If you see any, give us a call at (970) 668-3998, ext. 237, e us at, or fax at (970) 668-0755.
