Summit up

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column really upset that we finally know who “Deep Throat” is. As long as we’ve been writing, there was always “Deep Throat.”He motivated the entire general public to step up and acknowledge when things go wrong. The public deserves to know when government stinks, and the fact that someone remained nameless for so long only tells of the intimidation factor.Yet, you’d think the Washington Post would have been a little nicer to the man giving them the story of the century. The main man, the guy in the shadows, they named “Deep Throat”? We here at Summit Up have chosen not to use such insulting pseudonyms for our sources. We let them choose their own, and if they’re insulting, then we have no liability whatsoever.Here’s a list:1) Marqy Marq2) Purple Haze3) Odie4) CK15) Rev. Buttinski XIV6) Scout7) Eugene Flopinhop8) Jon Q. Oblivion9) Kenobiwan Kenoberg10) Suitor No. 1111) Twiggy12) Office JackWe will only announce their real identities when they die or when they leave the county. ***Nineteen years later, Sheila’s still in love. She writes:Dear David,I never thought I’d ever see the day that you would fall for me.I never thought I’d get to say “I love you” and hear you say you love me too.I only dreamed I’d spend my life, beside you, as your wife.David, you’re my dream come true and I’ll always be in love with you.Happy 19th Anniversary,Love you, Sheila.Congrats. (And get a room …)***A southern lady named Lillian from Mississippi called us with an Angel Alert!! Angel Alert!! going out to Cathy, who works in Breckenridge.Lillian and her husband were riding their bikes from Keystone to Breck when Monday’s rain came pouring down. They got stuck and, in short time, it started hailing.But, then came Cathy to save the day. We’ll let Lillian describe the good deed:”I was just so grateful. She didn’t have a bike rack, but she let us put our bikes in the back of her little green car – I think it was a Subaru. We were wet and stinky and she took us home. She gave us cookies … and they smelled home baked. She took us back to the condominium in Keystone and wouldn’t take no money …”We read y’all’s Summit Up column and saw you wanted info on the community. We just wanted to let everyone know that that’s why we come back. Even though we’re from the south, we always feel like home. “So this young lady wouldn’t even give us her name, but we saw her nametag on the dash, and it said Cathy. Anyway, we’re going to find out where she works and see if we can do something for her.”This is a great community and county, and you folks make us feel at home.”Wings and halos are in due order for Cathy. May the sun shine the next time you hop on a bike.***It’s Wednesday, and we’re looking for more pseudonyms. Send us your fake name to summitup@summitdaily.com, or leave it on the voicemail at (970) 668-3998, ext. 237.We’re out lurking in the shadows …
