Valley Roundup - May 1st, 2015

May 1, 2015

Welcome to Valley Roundup, a review of the top news stories in the valley in the past week.

The smells of legalization permeate up and down the valley, and the odor of marijuana has some people plugging their noses and complaining to city officials.

An investigation is brewing around a nonprofit in Glenwood and whether funds were misappropriated.

Meanwhile, there’s more debate on oil and gas drilling in the valley.

Carbondale is trying to get out in front of how development is handled by going to the citizens before making laws. In Aspen, the citizens are trying to circumvent laws.

And there’s a big dust up in the Aspen High School after the vice principal changed a student’s grade without telling the teacher.

This year’s USA pro challenge bike race is coming back to Aspen, with two chances to watch the cyclists battle up and down Independence Pass.

Joining me this week are Curtis Wackerle, editor of the Aspen Daily News, Jill Beathard, editor of the Snowmass Sun and Randy Essex, editor of the Glenwood Post Independent.
