Cheers and jeers

Jeers: To the Frisco Town Council for sneaking behind closed doors to decide a course of action on the controversial medical benefits issue. The excuse was to get advice from an attorney, but everybody knows how that loophole to the Sunshine Act is abused. At least the elected officials made the right decision to leave matters as they lie, for now. We expect Frisco voters will have something to say about part-time elected officials getting any kind of medical benefits.

Cheers: To the Summit High School varsity boys basketball team. The Tigers are an exciting team this year. They deserve more fan support.

Cheers: To Breckenridge Freeride Team member Steve Fisher for taking a gold medal in the superpipe competition at the X Games last week in Aspen. We hope he gets that clothing sponsorship he wants.

Cheers: To Tom Rowland for opening an environmentally friendly dry cleaning store in Silverthorne. If you care about the earth, Summitex Cleaners deserves your support. Real environmental progress comes when businesses embrace green methods and people support them.

Cheers: To Laura Au-Yeung the new Colorado State University extension agent for Summit County. She can help people with all sorts of advice. Call her at (970) 668-3595.
