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

The City of Aspen municipal election made history this week, with voters stripping some power away from their elected officials. And, two candidates vying for an open council seat are headed to a runoff election in June.

A prominent downtown Aspen landlord is eyeing more properties and has two more under contract to buy.

Meanwhile, the Aspen Skiing Co. has acknowledged that it needs to replace the old lift 1A with a new high-speed chairlift to accommodate World Cup finals in 2017.

How much growth can this valley handle?

And, the feds are looking to Lance Armstrong’s girlfriend to testify about about his honesty based on two events that occurred in Aspen.

Joining me this week are Michael Miracle, editor of Aspen Sojourner Magazine, Randy Essex, editor of the Glenwood Post Independent and Andy Stone, former editor and columnist at the Aspen Times.
