Valley Roundup - April 17, 2015

Apr 17, 2015

Welcome to Valley Roundup, a review of the top news stories in the valley in the past week.

Glenwood Springs officials are looking for ways to get people out of their cars in advance of the Grand Avenue Bridge being closed two years from now.

And, two new city council members were sworn into office Thursday night.

After a long and protracted criminal prosecution, the owner of Krabloonik dog sledding kennel was sentenced on his animal cruelty charge.

Meanwhile, politics are heating up as the Aspen election gets underway. Will any of it affect the outcome of who’s elected to office?

And, there’s a new kid on the block. A new player has emerged in the downtown Aspen commercial real estate scene.

Joining me this week are Curtis Wackerle, editor of the Aspen Daily News, Jill Beathard, editor of the Snowmass Sun and Randy Essex, editor of the Glenwood Post Independent.
