Valley Roundup - May 16th, 2014

May 16, 2014

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

Joining us today is Carolyn Sackariason, Editor of the Aspen Daily News.

There was a big turnout this week for a board meeting at Aspen Valley hospital.  Many in attendance are still angry about the change in surgeons at AVH.

The Aspen Homeless Shelter is fundraising to keep its doors open the rest of the year.  Until last year the shelter was funding through the Aspen valley Foundation. 

Also, this week more evidence that the real estate market in the upper valley is hot. 

And, on the Download with Rob St. Mary.  Net neutrality, cat videos and the Internet of Things.

Its all just ahead on Valley Roundup.
