Valley Roundup - July 25th, 2014

Welcome to Valley Roundup. 

On today’s show we discuss the week’s top news stories in the valley with Carolyn Sackariason, Editor of the Aspen Daily News and Managing Editor Curtis Wackerle.

On this week’s show we discuss Aspen’s future as an international hub for skiing and mountaineering.

Also, some push back from developers over what’s next for the former Pan and Fork trailer park in Basalt and three men received fines this week for trying to illegally build a mountain bike trail.

This week, the Glenwood Post Independent ran a story in Spanish.  Its not the first time and today we talk with Editor Randy Essex about what a bilingual news service looks like.

And on the Download with Rob St. Mary we consider "the selfie" - the most personal of art forms is not without its pitfalls.
