Audio Canvas: The Cafe

The cafe at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass Village is open for lunch from 12 to 1pm, and dinner from 6 to 7pm. It's not only open to the public, but to working artists who are teaching, or taking workshops, at the Ranch. Also, every other Friday, the ranch cafe puts on a BBQ lunch for the lunchtime auctionettes - that's $10 a person. Geri and Kendra have been working for the cafe for the past 4 years and this spring took on full responsibility of the cafe. Geri and Kendra share about prices, artists, the social scene, cuisine, and working with the non-profit Aspen T.R.E.E. to provide local and organic food.

Judge Gail Nichols, in Aspen, has released some of the details in why law enforcement originally arrested three people this spring in the death of Aspen native Nancy Pfister. One of the three, William "Trey" Styler, confessed last month to murdering her in February.

Valley Roundup - July 18th, 2014

Welcome to Valley Roundup.  It’s a review of the top news stories of the week in Aspen and beyond.

Joining us today are Andy Stone, former editor of and now columnist for the Aspen Times and Curtis Wackerle, Managing Editor of the Aspen Daily News.

This week there was a double-homicide in El Jebel.  The same week a pedestrian was hit and killed on highway 82, this comes on the heels of a high profile murder in Aspen and the death of a rafter.  Today we reflect on how big city this all sounds.

Also, are we loving the outdoors to death?  Judging for the Conundrum Hot Springs…maybe so.

Proposals are lining up for what to do with the old Aspen Art Museum, we look at the Lodging incentive program and the strange partnership of Lee Mulcahy and Maurice Emmer.

On the download with Rob St. Mary a how-to for safe sexting.  It’s all ahead on Valley Roundup.
