Cheers and Jeers


Cheers: To a great Fourth of July Weekend in the High Country. The fire ban’s off, the reservoir is all but full and the agenda of parades, music, entertainment and fireworks is chock full. Early birds: Don’t forget the Lake Dillon firefighters’ Fourth of July all you can eat pancake breakfast starting at 7 a.m. at the Frisco fire station on Eighth Avenue; $7 for adults, $4 for kids under 12.Cheers: To Andy Lapkass of Breckenridge for his showing in the grueling Race Across America. Jeers: To all the chamomile, an invasive ornamental weed, the town of Breckenridge is allowing to grow right at the foot of its Illinois Gulch trailhead sign. In fact, all of the dirt in the skating rink parking lot on Boreas Pass Road is a breeding ground for the chamomile. Everybody – towns, locals, second homeowners – has a responsibility to recognize and eradicate noxious weeds. They sterilize the environment by choking out our native species with the effects going all the way up the food chain.
