Around Aspen: Neighborhood party

Mary Eshbaugh Hayes

MEHLeft to right are physicists Marty Block and Loyal and Bernice Durand. The Durands have moved permanently to their Aspen home on West Pearl Court. They have been summer participants in the Aspen Center for Physics programs for many years.

A bright spot in the long and wintry spring offseason was the neighborhood party given by the Aspen Center for Physics on May 20. The gathering was started a few years ago when Jack Harris retired after having delivered the mail for 25 years in the West End. Everyone had such a good time that the neighbors continued the party and now it has been taken over by the Physics Center, where it has always been held. This year the food and beverages were provided by Plato’s Restaurant at the Aspen Meadows, a neighbor to the Physics Center.

More college student news. Spike Lipkin graduated summa cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania on May 16 with a degree in finance from the Wharton School, where he was a Joseph Wharton Scholar, and a degree in philosophy from the College where he was a Benjamin Franklin Scholar. He has accepted a position in private equity with The Blackstone Group in New York. Spike was born at Aspen Valley Hospital on Aug. 22, 1988, and his parents are Jody Guralnick and Michael Lipkin. We like to print all the news about college kids, so send them to me at The Aspen Times, 310 E. Main Street or call me at 970-925-7127.

Undercurrent … I wonder and I wonder what made Osama bin Laden hate us Americans so much.
