Cheers and Jeers


Cheers: To the Frisco Nordic Center and town of Frisco for their efforts hosting the annual Governor’s Cup Nordic and snowshoe races last weekend.Jeers: To those people, often weekenders, who think that since they are in the mountains they can let their big dogs run free in the morning with no supervision. This is difficult for those of us who walk our (little) dogs on leashes when these big ole dogs come up to investigate, play, and/or sometimes get involved in fights. Leashes get all wrapped around all the dogs and get caught in tails, then the big dogs try to run away, and everyone is all tangled up. As Frisco Municipal Judge Ron Carlson has said, “There are no bad dogs, just bad dog owners.” For those who don’t know, in the towns, leashes are mandatory. In the county, dogs must be under voice control, or on a leash.Cheers: To our redesign of the weather page. The one new feature is a Colorado map that shows weather across the state. One loyal reader found a glitch in the redesign, however. Thanks to him, we soon will have snow reports again from Squaw, Stowe, Jackson and, for good measure, Heavenly.Cheers: To Paul Chodkowski, the new administrator for St. Anthony Hospitals new facility under construction near Frisco. Chodkowski also oversees the Granby Medical Center, the Copper Mountain Clinic and the 7 Mile Medical Clinic in Winter Park.Cheers: To Tom Breigenzer, the retired electrical engineer who found a new part-time profession as a nail technician in his family’s Breigenzer’s Salon in Breckenridge. That’s one way to stay close his wife and daughter.Cheers: To Tony Harris, the Mountain Mentors’ Mentor of the Month. Tony takes time from his family and construction business to help provide adult guidance and interaction to youths who treasure the experience. To be a volunteer mentor, call (970) 668-4153.
