As another fall Basalt High School athletic season closes and winter sports get underway, we want to thank Dr. Tom Moore and Mike Levy for their endless volunteer hours of medical and physical therapy expertise for our athletes. You can count on them being around on the sidelines, in the weight training room, after-hours or on Saturday office visits. We appreciated the 7 a.m. call to see how our son, Darren, was after a football injury. We all appreciate your dedication and caring for our local children these many years. Thank you to their families and especially, Mike and Tom. We sure are lucky that you care about Basalt High athletes. Thank you.Leroy and Janice DurouxBasalt
