Welcome to Valley Roundup, this week a review of the top stories of 2013. Curtis Wackerle of the Aspen Daily News and Brent Gardner Smith of Aspen Journalism join us to look back on a busy year.
In Aspen it was regime change as a new mayor and city council was elected and changed the tone of debate. For Basalt a major issue was the forced relocation of residents living downtown in the Pan and Fork trailer park.
2013 was also marked by conflict over noise in Aspen’s restaurant row, the conclusion of a big cocaine bust and sticker shock from Obamacare.
