Aspen Times staff report
Aspen, CO Colorado

The FDIC has approved Alpine Bank to operate a mobile branch out of the Roaring Fork and Colorado River valleys through the nonprofit YouthEntity at the student center at the Bridges High School building in Carbondale.

YouthEntity Alpine Bank is the only nonprofit-financial institution collaboration of its kind on the Western Slope. The partnership works by encouraging students in grades 4-12 to attend financial workshops appropriate to their age and grade level.

School administrators, teachers, parents and students who are interested in attending a class or workshop can contact Kirsten McDaniel at for more information.

Wendy Lucas Aspen has opened offices at 601 East Hopkins Ave. as a full service real estate sales firm with more than 65 active listings. Lucas specializes in pre-construction and development opportunities, multiunit projects and working with builders.

The parent company programming KUUR-FM and KSNO-FM has announced it is purchasing three Glenwood Springs FM radio stations.

Currently each of the stations – formatted as The Moose, The Vault and Magic – is delivered to local airwaves via a company out of Grand Junction. The stations will be, for the first time, locally owned and operated and will no longer be simulcast from out-of-market owners; the format of each station will be custom-made and unique for the Glenwood Springs area.

Marcos Rodriguez is the founder and CEO of the parent company.

The roster of stations in Glenwood Springs is 93.9 FM, 96.3 FM and 102.3 FM. A new format will also be heard in New Castle on 102.9 FM.

Cloud Nine Brownies has been renamed Aspen BrownieWorks. The local brownie company, started six years ago by Aspenites Jill and Jim Pomeroy, moved its ovens to Aspen Highlands and rebranded itself.

In addition to a new Aspen Highlands venue, other changes include a new name, logo, website ( and environmentally sensitive packaging.
