Valley Roundup for Aug. 5, 2016

Aug 12, 2016

Welcome to Valley Roundup. I’m Carolyn Sackariason.

The news that the Bureau of Land Management plans to cancel 25 oil and gas leases on the Thompson Divide has all sides reacting.

And, the public relations effort is getting ramped up around a hotel development at the base of Aspen Mountain.

Meanwhile, an Aspen man is suing a local dentist for allegedly pulling the wrong the tooth.

And a local reporter reflects on his coverage over the past two years before he goes into the public sector. He says he can identify with the story he did this week on the stresses of living and working in the valley.

A survey of students in the valley shows that Latinos are less optimistic than their Anglo counterparts.

And a bank robber was brazen enough to walk right onto Grand Avenue on a busy afternoon, eluding police.

Joining me this week are Randy Essex, editor of the Glenwood Post Independent, Collin Szewczyk, reporter for the Aspen Daily News and Curtis Wackerle, editor for the Aspen Daily News.

Valley Roundup is a production of Aspen Public Radio news.
