Silverthorne’s new performing arts center opened in June… no more squeezing into a small drafty historic building to see plays and concerts. This will be one of the better $9 million investments the Town ever makes. The agin’ers who are still mad about the Rec Center after 20 years will be apoplectic over this, I’m sure.
Every road in Summit County… is coned off just in time for July 4th. Nothing happened for 40 years then in June every road project began at the same time. Don’t these guys talk to each other? Oh… maybe they do.
There’s good news and there’s bad news… Summit County has the highest life expectancy in the USA at 86.3 years per a University of Washington study this year.

Instead of new housing, those guys really need a tunnel under Berthoud Pass.
