Just like any other month, the Red Brick Center for the Arts is opening a new gallery in the former school building. But instead of artists banding together under one creative theme, these artists all have studios at the Third Street center in Carbondale.

  Carbondale’s Third Street Center is five years old this summer, and it might be due for an upgrade. The Center is home to several nonprofits and other entities, and hosts lots of public events.

An effort is underway to expand services for local veterans and better tackle problems like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and brain injuries. It’s estimated more than 14,000 veterans live in the Roaring Fork and Colorado River Valleys and, a center is opening up before summer to help deliver services to them.
