Morning Edition With Molly Dove

Weekdays 5:00AM-9:00AM

Every weekday Aspen Public Radio's Morning Edition takes listeners around the country and the world with four hours of multi-faceted stories and commentaries that inform, challenge and occasionally amuse. For more than three decades, NPR's Morning Edition has prepared listeners for the day ahead with up-to-the-minute news, background analysis and commentary. Reports and newscasts from the Aspen Public Radio Newsroom feature stories and updates from around the Roaring Fork Valley, as well as Capitol Coverage from Denver. The Marketplace Morning Report is also heard at 6:50AM and 8:50AM.

After a school shooting left 17 people dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., the county sheriff's office decided to arm its school-based deputies with automatic rifles.

It was nine days after the Feb. 14, 2018 shooting, and Broward Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie said issuing the weapons was "a stopgap measure to create a heightened sense of security around the district."

The pandemic has meant that many state fairs have been cancelled this year. That has left a lot of fairgoers hungry for classics like deep fried Oreos, funnel cakes and curly fries.

Enter state fair meal kit boxes, shipped nationwide from StateFairToGo.com, a company in Minnetonka, Minn.

"It's a fun way to taste fair favorites, and it's a fun way to support these local concessionaires, many of whom rely on the fair for their livelihoods," Josh Zamansky, who owns the meal kit company, tells NPR.
