Welcome to Valley Roundup. I’m Carolyn Sackariason.
For the past several months, there has been discussion in Pitkin County among elected officials about how dangerous marijuana edibles are. They are considering a ban on them but how likely that is is debatable.
In Glenwood Springs, a new detour will be established to cross the river while the Grand Avenue Bridge is being rebuilt. It’s sure to cause serious traffic problems.
Meanwhile, in Rifle a woman has opened a cuddling business.
Over in Basalt, they may need a big group hug as politics continues to pit residents against each other.
And an inmate at the Pitkin County Jail caused about $50,000 in damage and forced the 911 communications center to relocate.
Joining me this week are Chad Abraham, reporter for the Aspen Daily News, Jeanne McGovern, editor of the Aspen Times Weekly, Randy Essex, publisher of the Glenwood Post Independent and Andy Stone, columnist for Aspen Times.
