Cheers and jeers

Cheers: To the ski resort chief operating officers for hamming it up for the Summit Chamber’s annual pre-ski season luncheon. Arapahoe Basin’s Greg Finch got outslicked in the video department but trumped his compatriots in the funny department. The only down note was the fact scammers scouted the lunch tables early and swiped some of the free ski pass coupons that Copper, to its credit, puts out every year. Jeers: We aren’t going to let up on the noxious weed watch. Boo to the businesses in Silverthorne along Blue River Parkway that are growing thick crops of false chamomile.Cheers: To Summit School District graduate Aaron Cook for being the first to receive a high school diploma through the new Twilight Alternative Education Program.Cheers: To Bernie and Elizabeth Baltich of Osprey Adventures as they chart new waters in Minnesota after 16 years of running the Frisco Bay Marina.Jeers: To the folks running the Silverthorne Post Office Annex for watering the grass on Wednesday when it was snowing on top of four inches already on the ground.Jeers: To the county roads officials for not putting up the closed sign on the Dam Road Tuesday when the snow closed it. As is often the case, the unsuspecting had to drive all the way past Country Kitchen before turning around.Cheers: To the life of the late Dale Yanari. Last Sunday, our columnist, Jeffrey Bergeron (Biff America) waxed eloquently about living a life that makes for a good obituary. Dale, a Frisco resident, did just that before passing away Sept. 9. His friends will celebrate his life today at 1 p.m. at the Copper Station day lodge at Copper Mountain. Dale, a Buddhist, believed true spirituality was about giving back to other people and living a life of integrity, said his business assistant, Jeannie Cole.
