Valley Roundup - November 21st, 2014

Nov 21, 2014

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

Guest host this week is Loren Jenkins.

This week ski season starts and there’s excitement around that, but there’s also excitement and concern, depending on whom you ask, about a developer buying up over a dozen buildings in Aspen. Meanwhile, Aspen city hall could be on the move soon. The state has taken its first shot at a unified water plan on diversions and other projects as Glenwood Springs continues to figure out how to mend fences over a new proposed bridge.

And an Aspen landmark is shutting its doors again and this time it could be forever.

Joining us this week are Curtis Wackerle, Managing Editor of the Aspen Daily News, Carolyn Sackariason, Editor of the Aspen Daily News, Randy Essex, Editor of the Glenwood Post Independent and Brent Gardner-Smith of Aspen Journalism. They spoke with guest host Loren Jenkins.
