Bad call

Dear Editor:

Don’t you have a clue about the culture of this valley? Catherine Store does not divide the Roaring Fork Valley population, as indicated by the elimination of The Aspen Times from downvalley distribution! We are one valley with many community, news and consumer interests shared by people throughout the area.

It was bad enough that for the past many years the Post Indy never put sufficient numbers of papers in the news stands in Carbondale, despite my numerous calls saying they ran out by midmorning. Now the big newspaper conglomerate has totally pulled The Aspen Times from stands downvalley past Catherine Store and hasn’t even bothered to increase the numbers of Post Indys to compensate.

Bravo for the independent Aspen Daily News, whose editor and publisher recognize the inter-relatedness of our valley’s populations. And while I’m at it, kudos to the Sopris Sun for so quickly and beautifully picking up Carbondale’s need for a local newspaper after the big boys shut down the Valley Journal a few months ago. Let’s hear it for independent, home-grown businesses!

Laurie Loeb
