Sitting here at the CyberStar Summit in San Antonio listening to Bill French, founder of MyST Technology, discuss the long tail of the web and how it relates to real estate.  We are all so enamored with getting control of the major search terms and phrases by which people find us in our markets. ...

Talked with my daughter, Adrienne, today.  She’s in Denver, an hour east of here, and 4,000 feet lower.  She’s jealous.  They are having balmy weather.  We are getting snow.   She is a snowboarder.  I prefer golf.  So, in a sense, we should switch places.  But, we are otherwise where we want to b...

At no time does this slogan of ours make more sense than at the first snow of the season.  So, as we near the end of this day of our first snow of 2006, it’s a good time to reflect.  Avid skiers and snowboarders are salivating.  Golfers and mountain climbers are groaning.  But, regardless, everyo...

Some of us mountaineers just like to rough it.  So, the Blue River mayor quit, not just when it was clear that her camp would lose the vote on paving, but also after she’d received some threats from neighbors who, well, like things just the way they are.  Then, within a couple of weeks from her r...

A statewide smoking ban went into effect this year for all public and private buildings, with very few exceptions (like your own home).  However, a Summit County-wide ban went into effect a couple of years earlier - the limitations were somewhat different, but close.  One thing the State of Color...

It’s Ptarmigan Mountain for gosh sakes.  There are no “real” roads up there.  After all, when the Bureau of Land Management deeded acreages to Korean War Vets in the 50s, it did not plan a community.  Those original owners were left to fare for themselves.  They had to build a structure on the l...

Gary Lindstrom is a good friend of mine. He is also  our  State Representative for  Summit and adjoining  counties.  He posts  regular observations and encourages  their distribution.  This is his most recent, and one I like, because it  gives a look at the types of issues shared by so many of u...

Higher education takes on new meaning when it occurs in the - um - high country.  Colorado Mountain College has several campuses in the Colorado Mountains, two in Summit County.  These are located in Dillon and Breckenridge.  But, there has been a long-held desire to combine the campuses into one...
