Valley Roundup - March 7th, 2014

Mar 7, 2014

Joining us today are Carolyn Sackariason of the Aspen Daily News, Michael Miracle of Aspen Sojourner magazine and Andy Stone of the Aspen Times.

This week, the community processes the murder of a lifetime local.  Homicide is rare here and it is especially difficult when the victim is so well know.

Also this week, Aspen Valley Hospital parts ways with a longtime surgeon and signs up with a new surgical team.

And, a new Limelight in Snowmass is off the table…maybe.

One of NPR’s top international correspondents visited the valley this week.  Phillip Reeves gave audiences the backstory to Ukraine, Russia and Crimea.  Reeves sat down for interview with us and you’ll hear it just ahead on this week’s Valley Roundup.

The Pitkin County Sheriff's office arrested two people today in connection to the murder of Aspen native Nancy Pfister. Pfister's body was discovered last week inside her West Buttermilk home. Authorities arrested William F. Styler III, 65 and Nancy Christine Styler, 62. Both are formerly from Castle Rock, Colorado. They moved to the Aspen area in the fall of 2013, where they rented out Ms. Pfister's home at 1833 West Buttermilk Road.
