Mountain Mailbag, 8/27

Nifty, Nifty, Phillip’s 50Phillip Maynard of Glenwood Springs is 50 years old Saturday! Phillip, a first-grader in the picture at right, graduated from Glenwood High more than a few years ago and is now an Aspen Parks and Recreation employee. Phillip can thank his wife Jo Ellen for submitting his picture to Mountain Mailbag. But Jo Ellen knows what’s fair – she submitted her first-grade picture, and is turning 52 on Aug. 28, just like her hubby. Not only do Phillip and Jo Ellen have the same birthday, but the two, both long-time Valley residents, met on their birthday 22 years ago at the Black Nugget in Carbondale.They will celebrate their birthdays with a trip to Denver for a Broncos game with their daughter, Mariane, tonight.
