Welcome to Valley Roundup. I’m Carolyn Sackariason.
The town of Silt has lost its police chief under suspicious circumstances and officials are being less than cooperative in letting the public know what’s going on.
The Roaring Fork School District is taking measures to let 32 people go, many of whom are teachers. They will be able to apply for their jobs again but there’s no guarantee they will get re-hired.
And in Aspen, the biggest development the ski resort has seen in decades is in front of council. Some think it’s the answer to revitalizing the west side of Aspen Mountain; others think it’s far too large for the neighborhood.
I speak with Randy Essex, editor and publisher of the Glenwood Post Independent, blogger Elizabeth Milias, Madeleine Osberger of the Aspen Daily News and Aspen Times columnist Roger Marolt.
