Feeling right at home
Dear Editor:Tuesday, I arrived in Aspen to tape an interview on Channel 12 with Jerry Bovino. Although I had been to the Colorado mountains many times, I had never experienced anything like this.First of all, Jerry Bovino is a one-man chamber of commerce. His energy and love for Aspen shine through. Seeing Aspen through his eyes is a veritable feast.After taping the show, I was on my own. The people of Aspen eased my way to the airport in such a gracious manner. Strangers picked me up, baggage and all, to deliver me to the bus station. People made sure I found the right bus.A young airline agent greeted me with a bright smile.This isn’t “customer service.” This is genuine caring for one’s fellow man. Aspen should be proud of its citizens. I felt right at home and look forward to my return.Kathleen GoldenWashington, D.C.
