Cheers and Jeers

Jeers: To the people taking truckloads of cardboard to the landfill when it can be recycled by the Summit Recycling Project. Every citizen should take a trip to the landfill to see just what our throw-away society looks like as an end product. It’s disgusting, and that’s not a slap at the landfill operation. Recycling is only the third tier of the solution. Reducing and reusing are the first two components. Having said this, cheers to the Summit Recycling Project and the Summit County commissioners who are moving toward building an industrialized recycling plant at the landfill.Cheers: To the Summit Recycling Project’s final electronics waste recycling week of the year. Old computers, TVs, printers and other peripherals can be taken to the Frisco Drop-Off Center from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Monday through Friday. SRP charges nominal costs starting at $10 and lower, depending on the item. For questions, call (970) 668-5703.Cheers: To the Summit Tigers soccer team. The Tigers are making a name for themselves. The next home games are today at 1 p.m. and Thursday at 6 p.m. A great aspect about the team is that it reflects the diverse face of Summit County.Cheers: To the Summit Tigers golf team’s stunning comeback to tie for the 4A Jeffco League championship. The Tigers made up 35 strokes over two days, including 19 in the final championship match. Team members include Jason Chrobak, Eric Nilsson, Sean Miller, Phil Camillo and Jimmy Keeling. Chrobak and Camillo made first team all-Jeffco while Nilsson and Miller were named second team.Jeers: To whomever was responsible for busting apart the message board at the Blue River Ballfields below the dam near Silverthorne. It took some caring individuals quite a bit of time to put that board together, but it’s beyond repair now.
