Two local girls kickin’ butt
Dear Editor:Congratulations to Renee West and Gretchen Bleiler for their second-place finishes recently.The next time you’re in a halfpipe, or near one, give praise to Gretchen for representing not only the USA brilliantly, but the Roaring Fork Valley as well. And for all those hiking up Highland Bowl for the first time, or last, the tall chick (Renee) who just passed you listening to her iPod is probably on her third lap of the day. Renee finished second in the Superinferno race at Highlands and deserves some love as well. Two local girls just kicking some Aspen.Kevin HerzingAspen
