Valley Roundup - May 9th, 2014

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

Joining us today are Curtis Wackerle, Managing Editor of the Aspen Daily News and Andy Stone, former editor of and now columnist for the Aspen Times.

A public comment period on oil and gas leasing in and around the Thompson Divide closes next week after a series of public hearings that drew deeply divided audiences.  Today we’ll look at what those differences really are

After a controversial election this week the Crown Mountain Recreation District has a new member of its board of directors.  She has pledged to bring more transparency to the district.

Also, this week that Pitkin County says no to legal marijuana operations in Woody Creek.  We wonder if Hunter S. Thompson is spinning in his grave.

And, we bring back one of our favorite Downloads with Rob St. Mary.  Its all ahead on Valley Roundup.
