Valley Roundup - January 31st, 2014

Jan 31, 2014

Good afternoon and welcome to Valley Roundup, a review of the week’s top news stories in Aspen and beyond.

We are joined today by the Aspen Times’ Andy Stone and Aspen Daily News’ Curtis Wackerle. This  Week, Garfield County officials said they are asking the state not to impose new air pollution standards on oil and gas drilling rigs in the county.

Aspen’s most famous downtown, Ukrainian, penthouse-owners have been told the city will no longer jump every time they complain about noise from bars and restaurants.

Now that marijuana is legal, the conversation about pot has shifted.  One new topic is; how potheads should behave in public.

And on the Download with Rob St. Mary – Big snow goes viral.  Also, break out the goldfish.  It might be Superbowl 48 in some quarters, to others its Weed Bowl 1.  Even Jello Biafra weighs in.

Its all on this week’s Valley Roundup.
