Valley Roundup - April 3rd, 2015

Apr 3, 2015

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

It looks like CDOT has set a date for the new bridge in Glenwood Springs.

Construction season has already begun in Aspen and it isn’t going to let up anytime soon.

And neither will the endless effort to preserve our water in the valley and around the state.

Meanwhile, property values are on the rise in the mid-valley.

What should be done about the marijuana odor emanating from a grow operation in the Holland Hills area?

And the former owner of a dog sledding operation in Snowmass Village has pleaded guilty to one count of animal cruelty.

Joining me this week are Curtis Wackerle, editor of the Aspen Daily News, Brent Gardner Smith, executive director of Aspen Journalism, Andy Stone, columnist and former editor of the Aspen Times and Randy Essex, editor of the Glenwood Post Independent.
