Letter: A need to slow down?

A need to slow down?

In light of the recent bus accident, I find it ironic to have observed, on Monday morning, a RFTA bus (#737) headed downvalley on the bus-rapid-transit Glenwood route speeding between 5 and 15 miles per hour in excess of the posted speed limits between Blue Lake and Catherine Store in the very same vicinity of the accident.

Shouldn’t all RFTA busses observe the speed limits?

Kudos & Kindness (Sept. 19, 2021)

On Saturday, the 20th anniversary of 9/11, Aspen fire, police EMS and the veterans made us all proud to be members of this community. The 9/11 Day of Remembrance Ceremony at the Aspen firehouse was a reverent tribute for those who lost their lives while protecting and serving us.
