Tweet All About It: Plane spoken about Aspen jets
Each week, we pick out our favorite and not-so-favorite tweets (at least those that are printable) about Aspen and display them on Sunday’s page A2.
• “But just think of the carbon footprints those jets have, Tom. If #Aspen and @AspenSnowmass REALLY want to make a stand against #climatechange, they should ban private jet traffic in/out of that airport. Otherwise, it’s just more empty virtue-signaling #copolitics #tcot #colorado” — @SeanPaige
• “No Way! All the private jets in #Aspen are solar-powered and woven from hemp by indigenous villagers living in harmony with Gaia and singing her praises. And the owners all made their money trading Unicorn Futures.” — @BoreGuru
• “Filed to CBS Sports: Aspen Institute just released study suggesting no tackle football until high school.” — @dennisdoddcbs
• “Aspen is taking my breath away! No seriously, the altitude is kicking my butt. I’m out of breath walking around.” — @Mspamiam_
• “You can’t come to @AspenCO and not climb a 14er, at least that’s what I was told by @Pilot_PR So that’s what I did. Summited Pyramid Peak (4275m) with @Aspen Expedition this morning after a stunning climb up. #mountains #aspen #colorado #climbing” — @MarcusGLeach
• “Gotta love driving by the Aspen airport tho. The collection of private jets that the @algore / manbearpig AGW believers own is stunning. A Citation XX or G4 is below average.” — @BoreGuru

Wildlife officials: Even with abundant natural foods for bears around Aspen, people need to secure sources
An abundant bounty of natural food is expected for bears around the Aspen area but serviceberry, choke cherry and acorns are generally maturing late because of all the snow last winter and a wet, cool spring. Wildlife officers stress that even with abundant natural food available, people need to eliminate food sources for bruins because they will always go for an easy meal.
