Cheers and Jeers


CHEERS: To the two separate groups of local emergency responders who traveled to the vast ranchlands in the southeast corner of the state this week to help bring relief to the area hardest hit by the recent blizzards. Thanks for representing the county in such a helpful way.CHEERS: To the many folks who found time to recycle their gifts, trees, etc. after the “trashy” holiday season, where we fill our local dumpsters and tax our landfill. It takes a certain extra effort during the holidays to recycle, and those who do deserve a cheer.JEERS: To those who, despite the warnings, decided to drive drunk on New Year’s eve. While the number of arrests wasn’t shocking, and in fact did represent the fact that 99 percent of folks were responsible, it showed that some still haven’t quite caught on to law enforcement’s latest focus – the jailing of anyone who is even remotely close to being on the edge of intoxicated.CHEERS: To the continued national news coverage of snow in the High Country, which certainly helps our area businesses, not to mention the mental state of the local riders. With little snow falling around Lake Tahoe, and the East Coast being bone dry, it means Summit County is the place to be this winter. Or, maybe all that traffic last week already proved this point …JEERS: To the Broncos missing the playoffs. We’ll just leave it at that.
