Welcome to Valley Roundup. I’m Carolyn Sackariason.
A Glenwood Springs arts nonprofit is being investigated after its executive director resigned.
And the national forest has been defaced.
Good news: the pedestrian bridge is open in Glenwood Springs.
Election day in Aspen is drawing near.
With an all-mail in ballot election, newspaper editors feel pressure to throw their support behind candidates when they might not be ready to. And the letters to the editor supporting various candidates are flooding in.
Also, the current Aspen City Council is moving toward making the legal age 21 to buy tobacco.
And in the midvalley, development is making headlines. The town of Basalt is eyeing the controversial Pan and Fork parcel, and the Tree Farm proposal goes to a public hearing next week.
I’m joined in the studio by Aspen Daily News Editor Curtis Wackerle, and Aspen Times managing editor Rick Carroll, along with reporter Scott Condon. And via Skype with Randy Essex, editor and publisher of the Glenwood Post Independent.
