Cheers and Jeers


Cheers: To Summit County Mountain Rescue Group volunteers who have to deal with much of mankind’s craziness when we walk into the woods and then suffer for the errors of our ways. Thanks for being there.Jeers: To whoever didn’t vote.Cheers: The Summit County Rotary Club and the town of Dillon for giving us a second barbecue party this weekend. We know visitors love these events, but the truth of the matter is the BBQ at the Summit will be yet another great locals party with proceeds helping the Rotarians with their good deeds.Cheers: To the race leaders in Wednesday night’s Pennsylvania Gulch Grind of the Summit Mountain Challenge. They stopped to assist an injured rider. Jack Gervais, Christian Ball, Tim Graczyk and several others showed the ultimate gift of sportsmanship to make sure the racer was OK.Cheers: To the Summit Seniors for putting on one heck of a rummage sale. Friday morning, people were queued up to paw through the bargains. We don’t like lines, but we understand the incentive. The sale continues through 5 p.m. today.Jeers: To the scum that horked rummage sale items in the dark of night. Those ill-gotten tools are now doomed. Everything you fix or adjust will fall apart.Cheers: To the Friends of the Library book sales, always a readers’ extravaganza. The sale at the Main Library at the County Commons near Frisco continues until 5 p.m. today. In the last two hours, you can fill a bag with books for $3.Cheers: To the Frisco business people who helped make sure rescue workers were fed and watered during the Main Street Conoco gas pump fire Aug. 4. Cheers also to the firefighters who extinguished the blaze. Looking ahead: 63 days until lift-served skiing, 57 days left to golf, 66 days left to ride bikes.
