Then we dig through the Aspen Public Radio archives and listen to some of this year’s most interesting and thought-provoking local stories. One Glenwood Springs woman was caught in a dangerous financial trap. And, her problem is somewhat common in Colorado’s immigrant community. As habitat for the Greater Sage Grouse disappears across the West, federal officials are deciding how strong protections should be on some Colorado land. Local stakeholders are watching closely. And a snowboarding veteran is battling a major injury with the Olympic Games a little more than a month away.</p><p> Thu, 26 Dec 2013 22:28:00 +0000 Elise Thatcher & Marci Krivonen 12125 at http://aspenpublicradio.org Mountain Edition - December 26th, 2013 Save Wagner Park http://aspenpublicradio.org/post/save-wagner-park <p><strong>FULL DISCLAIMER:</strong>&nbsp;&nbsp; <em>I live near Wagner Park in the center of Aspen.&nbsp; I love Wagner Park.&nbsp; My dog and I have played ball in Wagner Park almost every day for 11 years.&nbsp; I believe that open spaces should be cherished and protected.&nbsp;&nbsp; I want to save Wagner Park.</em></p><p>I have lost complete confidence in our elected officials and the City of Aspen to make well informed and reasonable decisions, especially concerning Wagner Park.
