Cheers and Jeers

Jeers/Cheers: To Summit County Commissioners for switching their focus on the future on Interstate 70 from a monorail to adding more lanes. In some ways, they had no choice because it had become clear the Colorado Department of Transportation was not going to pursue a monorail option. Now consensus seems to be forming around six-laning the highway, and the monorail is losing political momentum – not that it had much.

Cheers: To a nice man named Andy who towed a certain car out the driveway of a certain person we know last Saturday. It was plowed in during the storm on Saturday, and this certain person, thinking she was invincible, thought she could drive through it. Not. Andy, in his Toyota pickup truck, came to the rescue. This is a cheer to all of the “Andy’s” out there. We’ve seen you at work.

Cheers: To educator Dr. Ann Morrison Clement who is back from working in Slovenia to help make the world better for special education students there.

Cheers: To Frisco resident Dick Boylan for his tenacity in opposing health care benefits for Frisco elected officials, especially when other part-time employees don’t qualify. Boylan promises to be a one-man campaign in the town’s April election.

Jeers: To the drivers in Frisco and Breckenridge who refuse to yield to pedestrians in the crosswalks.

Cheers: To the Denver Nuggets for putting a big hurtin’ on the Los Angeles Lakers, even if the Lakers were without Shaq and Karl Malone. Does anybody have Nuggets fever yet? We are getting there.

Cheers: To Gov. Bill Owens for pointing out in his State of the State speech that his and the legislature’s $9 million infusion into tourism marketing last year worked.

Jeers: To Gov. Bill Owens for not saying how much he was going to propose for tourism marketing this year.
