Bravo to Filmfest

Kudos to the staff of the Aspen Filmfest. Not only was every movie only thought-provoking, but the actors were magnificent, especially the young children. After watching hundreds of movies all year, you came up with the greatest programs. This year the venue was changed twice with a smooth transition that this staff has to be congratulated for accomplishing. Thank you so much for a fantastic week of films.

Youth football players grateful to play

My name is Tyler Ward, and I play football for Aspen's fifth- and sixth-grade football team. I love being part of the Three Rivers Youth Football organization.

I would like to thank everyone in our community who makes our football season possible.

Thank you to the Aspen Elks Lodge No. 224, our sponsor; Carol Sams, Aspen High School athletic director; Ron Morehead for all of his years as a town rep for Three Rivers Youth Football; and Aspen Parks and Recreation for sharing its fields.

I also would like to give a big thanks to our awesome coaches for all of their hard work: my dad, John Ward, who never stops believing in me, Chris Hendrickson, Shaun Kennedy, Scott Miller and Chris Passero.

Well, it is that time of year again when my mom and dad make me write a letter to the editor.

The reason I am writing is to thank everyone involved in the Three Rivers Football program. I am so grateful to be part of this football team.

A huge shout-out goes to Ron "Stump" Morehead for all of his involvement with this program. Thank you, Ron, from the bottom of our hearts — this would not have happened without you.

My coaches — Mike Haisfield, Chris Lantner and Shannon Sweeney — are amazing. I have learned so much this year.

And last, but not least, thank you, Aspen Elks No. 224, for being our sponsor.

Thank you, Elks Lodge No. 224, for sponsoring our football teams for the past 15 years. Without your support, we would not have a football team, and without football, I don't know what I would play for a fall sport.

You guys are the best, and I hope you keep on sponsoring youth football so the younger kids can play.

I would like to thank Ron Morehead for organizing and helping make this program. I also would like to thank my coaches for teaching us and taking time out of their day to make us better football players. And I would like to thank my teammates for playing hard and having great sportsmanship.
