Locations: News Published

“If I can give one word it would be ‘epic,’” Carbondale Police Department’s own Gretchen Bell said of the Roaring Fork Rams’ homecoming football game on Friday, Oct. 7. Bell delivered the game ball from the sky, flying in by helicopter from Valley View Hospital, and landing right on the field. The Rams beat Olathe, 42-6. 

Pablo Herr, of Carbondale & Rural Fire Protection District, along with Bell, organized the fly-in. Herr was on the ground and guided the chopper in for a landing.
