News in Brief

We’re sorry, but The Aspen Times must cancel the planned public meeting with Publisher Jenna Weatherred and Editor Bob Ward. The two had planned to discuss the newspaper and its coverage with members of the public at 2 p.m. today at Zele Cafe.

This was to be the third in a series of informal meetings with Weatherred, Ward and readers. But this week Weatherred received an important phone call from Guatemala, and she left last weekend with her husband, Wayland, to pick up their newly adopted son in Antigua.

Weatherred and Ward plan to schedule another public “coffee talk” when she’s back on the job after a maternity leave.

Parts of Durant Street and Cooper Street in Aspen partially lost power Friday evening. A Kemosabe employee who identified himself as Zippy said, “If I can’t curse it right or kick it right you’ll have to call in the professionals.”

“It’s only a small-scale thing,” Aspen City Manager Steve Barwick said. “Our crews are working on it.”

He said it might be as simple as a transformer going down.
