Daylight Savings ends this Sunday, November 6. Don’t forget to turn your clocks back one hour. Use this seasonal reminder to check household safety products like changing the batteries in your smoke alarms. Be sure to install carbon monoxide monitors if you haven't already. Many companies now sell a combo smoke/carbon monoxide detector that you can just plug into an outlet in every bedroom. It’s also a good time to change the filters in your heating system. Enjoy that extra hour of rest!

Summit County shares its boundaries with its own school district: The Summit School District. The county and district span from Green Mountain Reservoir in the north to Hoosier Pass in the south, from Copper Mountain in the west to Arapahoe Basin in the east. The district is home to six public elementary schools, one public middle school, one public high school and one public alternative school. The elementary schools are nested in the communities of Breckenridge, Frisco, Summit Cove, Dillon Valley and Silverthorne. Students in those neighborhoods attend their “home school” and their families are an integral part of the school’s success. Two elementary schools – Dillon Valley and Silverthorne Elementary – are dual language schools where students learn in…

This summer’s heavy rains followed by a dry and mild September has made the golden leaves stay spectacular for weeks on end! Friday night the ski area got its first dusting of snow and the contrast between the white peaks and golden valleys was awe inspiring. Town was bustling all weekend with “leaf peepers”… folks up from the front range to take in the incredible mountain colors.

I was lucky to be part of the Summit County Special Olympics Tennis Team this summer! The training consisted of weekly practices – frequently held on the indoor courts at the beautiful Breckenridge Tennis Center – throughout the summer. Athletes ages 10 – 21 participated in warmups, skills drills and doubles tennis. Some were new to the program and others had won medals at state championships in recent years. At the end of our summer training, three of the players went on to participate in the state-level competition at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs: Erikka Abbott of Dillon, Gabe Duwaik of Silverthorne and Caroline Willis of Frisco.

Our local Special Olympics program is really growing! We trained in Track and Field last spring and…
