Valley Roundup - March 21st, 2014

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

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

This week saw the first court proceedings in the Nancy Pfister murder case.  Much of the time was spent arguing over evidence and public statements from law enforcement.   The concern is that media reports and rumors could make it impossible to find an impartial jury.  A trial in the case is months if not years away.

Also this week, Hotel Aspen gets approved to grow itself.

And, in Snowmass the owners of base village go on the defensive over losing another proposed development.

We’ll discuss those stories and have The Download with Rob St. Mary.  It’s coming up on today’s Valley Roundup.
