Quiz the candidates Monday
Dear Editor:Valley voters are invited to a special candidates’ open house on Monday from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Eagle County Community Center in El Jebel. Four candidates for state and Eagle County offices will be in the same place at the same time, affording us all the opportunity to express our concerns, to pose questions and to elicit their views.While national races get most of the press attention, it is often what happens at the district and county levels that affects the quality of our lives, week in and week out. And because much of the Roaring Fork Valley is isolated from state and county power centers, it is especially important for us to provide input, raising awareness of issues critical to us here.In attendance will be Jay Fetcher, candidate for state Senate District 8, which includes Eagle and Garfield counties, and Kathleen Curry, candidate for state House District 61, which includes Pitkin, Eagle and Garfield counties. Also present will be Arn Menconi, incumbent candidate for Eagle County commissioner, and Peter Runyon, candidate for Eagle County commissioner.A good turnout of prospective Roaring Fork Valley voters will demonstrate that we care about who represents us and about those state and county issues that impact our lives, making it more likely that we will see our elected officials in the future. Refreshments and lively conversation are guaranteed.Ruth FreyBasalt

“It’s going to be a pretty unique experience” Free Range Kitchen and Wine Bar in Basalt is partnering with the historic Dallenbach Ranch to host a four-course, four-wine, al fresco dinner on the banks of the Fryingpan River featuring wines from the recently released 2015 vintage of Brunello di Montalcino, which is already being hailed as the best vintage of the current century.
