ASPEN, Colorado – Four area high school students have been chosen to cover the X-Games for ESPN’s RISE Magazine: Anna Gauldin and Rebecca Carcaterra from Glenwood Springs High School, and Michael Schwartz and Patrick Severy from Aspen High School.

The students checked in Wednesday to get their press credentials, toured the press center and met with the RISE team, and then began covering the events and interviewing the athletes. They will be covering the games on Friday evening as well.

According to Grace Coryell, PR contact for ESPN X-Games, “the students will experience what it is like to cover the Winter X-Games for ESPN/RISE Magazine. They will also meet members of the ESPN and RISE teams and learn about their roles and experiences.”

Founded in 1997 as SchoolSports, ESPN RISE Magazine recognizes the outstanding work of student-athletes both nationally and locally. With 25 local editions and a million readers per issue, ESPN RISE Magazine is distributed directly to 7,000 high schools throughout the country.

On Wednesday, Feb. 3 from 3-7 p.m. and again on Saturday, Feb. 6 from 10 a.m. -1 p.m., Garfield County Public Health will be running the last two large-scale community walk-in clinics for both seasonal flu and H1N1 flu vaccinations.

This event is open to everyone and both types of flu vaccine will be available. The H1N1 flu vaccine is still free. The seasonal flu vaccine is $20 for adults and $10 for children.

The clinics will be held at both the Glenwood Springs Public Health office 2014 Blake Ave. (next to Valley View Hospital) and at the Rifle Public Health office 195 W. 14th St. (next to City Market).
