Aspen-Beverly Hills connection

Dear Editor:In Beverly Hills on Jan. 27, I ran into Beverly Hills resident and retired Beverly Hills businessman Russ Levy who I have known for years. He mentioned he hadn’t seen my letters published in the Beverly Hills Weekly and the Beverly Hills Courier newspapers in a long time.I told Russ Levy I would try again, so here is my effort with a linkage to Aspen.When I am in Los Angeles I go to US Bank in Beverly Hills to do my banking and receive delightful homey banking service and etiquette, which I also receive at US Bank in Aspen.US Bank-Beverly Hills Teller Alexis McCall and US Bank-Aspen Tellers Rita Ricciardi and Lois Frazier make my banking experiences something to remember.It is interesting I am the only one from Aspen to walk into the US Bank-Beverly Hills branch. And it is not just my imagination running amok either.Well, Beverly Hills residents Russ Levy, Les Bronte, Mary Cutler and Murray Fischer, I will see you again after my February stay at the 30,000-acre Lasater Ranch in Matheson, on the Front Range about 80 miles east of Denver.The Lasater Ranch is a cattle ranch specializing in Lasater Grasslands Beef, all natural beef grass fed on the Colorado plains and specially slaughtered and packaged for distribution to individuals, grocery stores and restaurants inside and outside Colorado.I will learn more about ranch owner Dale Lasater’s vertical beef industry business approach and the Foundation Herd of the Beefmaster Breed real soon.Beverly Hills and Aspen could savor some good natural Colorado beef in their eateries and food markets in the near future.If the Beverly Hills newspapers don’t publish this letter to satisfy Russ Levi and others in Beverly Hills, then the Aspen Daily News and The Aspen Times just may pick up the slack and win a new visitor from Beverly Hills to bridge the “Beverly Hills/Aspen Sister City Gap” before Vail steps up to baseball plate to hit a home run with Beverly Hills for a “Sister City Relationship For Mutual Benefit And Profit.”Emzy Veazy III, Esq.Aspen
