Thumbs down:

This thumbs down is from Roger Freed going out to certain snowmobilers. “This situation gets my goat. (A few) fences in the National Forest behind County Commons (have been) put up to prevent snowmobilers from harming the vegetation on the other side. Snowmobilers have broken holes in them. They believe nothing should get in the way of their selfish pleasure.”

Editor’s note: It should be pointed out that we don’t know for certain that snowmobilers have damaged the fencing.

Thumbs up:

This thumbs up is from a Summit Daily News reader who caught the story about a man in Eagle who is a fervent exponent of the “dark skies initiative,” a worldwide effort to cut down on light pollution. The reader positively agrees with the Eagle man and believes (like Eagle) the night light in Breck is dangerously close to light pollution. He wanted to point out that night lights can blot out the true size of Orion. Stargazers beware…

Thumbs up:

To Frisco for approving a proposal to renew the Summit Prevention Alliance lease at 518 Main St. for another year. The Summit Prevention Alliance has become a staple in the community and we think it’s honorable the town is working with the organization to give it time to find a new home.

Thumbs up:

To Mother Nature for giving us a glimpse of precipitation in the past week.

Thumbs down:

To Mother Nature for making that precipitation in the form of snow.

Thumbs up:

To the Summit Girls Rugby Club for finishing fourth place at nationals last weekend. Way to go ladies – putting Summit County rugby on the map.
