Once released, the bear ambled across the street and broke into a house. Police told The Mammoth Times that the bear had a habit of breaking-and-entering both houses and trucks, a consequence apparently of being fed human food.
Fahrenheit 9/11 free
ASPEN, Colo. If critics of Fahrenheit 9/11 are right, Michael Moore stretched the facts pretty hard in his docu-diatribe against President George Bush the Younger. Still, to video store owner Steve Stevens, the film constitutes education that he believes voters need before heading to the polls.
To that end, he is offering to let out his 10 copies of the movie for free, reports The Aspen Times. "I'm frustrated by some of my friends who don't investigate (the issues)," Stevens told The Aspen Times. "I'm doing this so people will get out there and have some knowledge before the vote."
Late fees will still apply. After all, the movie isnt worth much after Nov. 2.
Its now 4 lanes to Aspen
ASPEN, Colo. With the completion of a 3.5-mile segment through Snowmass Canyon at a cost of $100 million, all but the last mile of the highway to Aspen will be four-laned within a few weeks.
The result, transportation officials told The Aspen Times, is that the road that once was called Killer 82 will cease having head-on collisions. Crashes will be less severe, with fewer fatalities.
The end of construction work is expected to shave a few minutes off the drive to Aspen, but Dan Blankenship, who directs the valleys bus agency, does not expect the easier drive to dampen the ridership on buses. He reasons that the entrance to Aspen, which is a tremendous bottleneck, will continue to slow cars more than buses, which have special privileges.
Commuting times havent changed all that much over the years. Improved snow tires allow faster speeds now, but increased congestion has the opposite effect. According to the agreement worked out in advance of the four-laning, if the traffic count hits 1994 levels, the state transportation agency must begin working on ways to increase use of mass transit.
Rape charge in Canmore
CANMORE, Alberta Police jailed a 28-year-old construction worker after charging him with locking up a local service worker inside a hotel room for four days, giving her drugs, and repeatedly raping her and threatening to kill her. She was not reported missing.
A knowledgeable individual told the Rocky Mountain Outlook that many service workers, especially if they live in dormitory-style staff accommodations, prefer to spend their days off away from home.
