Aspen has a full city council again. Former council member Dwayne Romero has been selected to fill a vacancy created by the election of Mayor Steve Skadron.

Also returning this week are the mammoth and mastodon bones recovered in Old Snowmass. The fossils are on public display not far from where the animals died tens of thousands of years ago.

We talk with a biologist about tree killing insects and how they actually affect human health.

Our science reporter does what everyone’s mother says not to…look straight at the sun.

And we’ll hear about a work of art about the Colorado River that’s on display in downtown Chicago.
