Welcome to Valley Roundup. I’m Carolyn Sackariason.
A management plan has been adopted for the Crystal River but getting ranchers to agree to divert less water is still a challenge.
And rivers around the state are about to hit their peaks.
And in Glenwood Springs, a rare collision between a truck and an Amtrak train has made headlines.
Meanwhile, the first murder trial in years is happening in the Garfield County Courthouse.
And will Congressman Scott Tipton’s strategy of ignoring his political opponent work in this month’s primary election?
Finally, movement is afoot at the Aspen Power Plant, where operators want to open a restaurant and incubator workspace in a city-owned building.
Joining me this week on Valley Roundup are Brent Gardner-Smith, executive director of Aspen Journalism, Randy Essex, editor of the Glenwood Post Independent and Curtis Wackerle, editor of the Aspen Daily News.
