Welcome to Valley Roundup. I’m Carolyn Sackariason.
In its attempt to get more social media followers, the Aspen Police Department had a bit of fun with the resort’s reputation as a party town.
And time will tell if two developers who want to build lodging at the base of Aspen Mountain can play well together.
Meanwhile, construction activity in both Aspen and Glenwood Springs is on the rise.
In Battlement Mesa and Parachute, oil and gas pressures are being applied in new ways.
And in Basalt, plans to build a whitewater park have been approved but logistics could get dicey.
Finally, human run-ins with wildlife in urban areas are becoming more frequent. Be on the lookout for bears, moose and mountain lions.
Joining me this week are Curtis Wackerle, editor of the Aspen Daily News, Brent Gardner-Smith, executive editor of Aspen Journalism, Roger Marolt, columnist for the Aspen Times and Snowmass Sun and Randy Essex, editor of the Glenwood Post Independent.
