Cheers and Jeers

Cheers: To the Wiz. The buzz is big that the Summit High School musical is one not to be missed. The talented student cast is wowing audiences with its performance. We send a special salute to the backstage techs and the pit band. Special consideration goes to set designer and builder Robert Swartz who keeps volunteering even though his children have all graduated. Shows continue tonight at 7 and Sunday at 2 p.m., both in the high school auditorium. Tickets are $6 for adults and $4 for students.

Jeers: To the morons who keep passing we law-abiding drivers on the right in that 35 mph stretch as Highway 9 leaves Frisco proper toward Breckenridge. Many locals have been educated to the fact the speed limit is 35 mph, no ifs, ands or buts. Now we are providing others with training on tailgating and those mad dashes into the right-hand turn lane for an illegal pass. We are glad to be of service. It will be a real irony if police are back in the severe education mode after the lifts close and it’s just the locals on the road again.

Jeers: To the fact this could be the last summer for the popular Georgetown Loop Railroad that runs between Georgetown and Silver Plume over in Clear Creek County. We can’t believe the state really wants to see this historic tourist amenity disappear.

Cheers: To all of the spring breakers in the county working on their tans. Please realize spring almost never comes this early in high-elevation Summit County. But enjoy it while it’s here. Cheers also to the hardworking worker bees making sure our visitors are well served and cared for.

Cheers: To Joe Shackleton, general manager of Beaver Run, who recognized the mistake it was to allow Copenhagen smokeless tobacco to give away free samples in a tent at the base of Peak 9 last week. The town’s become a bit more savvy to health issues related to tobacco, and the tent created an uproar among guests. He’s promised it won’t happen again.
