The Garfield County Sheriff’s office says the fugitive it had been chasing the last 11 days, 36-year-old Michael Rosinski of the Canyon Creek area near Glenwood Springs, is in jail on the front range.  Rosinski and his wife Tara were busted by Arvada Police Tuesday morning.  On the 16th, Garfield deputies had tried to serve Michael Rosinski with another of the 15 active warrants against him, 6 of which are felonies.  They include a pair of charges for assault on an officer…  also theft, failure to appear on a drug possession charge, criminal mischief, and trespassing.  Rosinski had allegedly assaulted a deputy the last time he’d actually been in contact with law enforcers.  A major bad guy, according to Garfield sheriff’s spokesman Walt Stowe…Rosinski managed to disappear, despite being seen in his house, which was surrounded much of the 16th.  The Tuesday arrest was achieved by a multi-jurisdictional task force, led by Arvada Police and the US Marshals’ Fugitive Task Force.  Stowe says it isn’t yet clear just when the Rosinskis will be sent back to Garfield County to face more charges.

At the other end of the valley, the Aspen Ideas Festival continues through Saturday, with many big brains, and familiar faces & voices speaking to those visitors and locals who love digging into issues in the headlines.  One session’s been titled “Has American Grand Strategy Gone Missing?”  It featured an all-star diplomatic panel, including Council on Foreign Relations President Richard Haass…

Former Ambassador Wendy Sherman tries to explain why some Americans might be cool with an “unpredictable” leadership instead of the past steady, firm, consistent ones.  She finds a lot of folks pleased with some good things globalization has brought…

Wow–  quit your high-paying job, get paid even more.  Gotta find one of those gigs…  Rather than get sued and probably lose for a lot more money, Basalt Town Council’s voted unanimously with 2 members absent, to pay former town manager Mike Scanlon a quarter-million dollars.  He never filed a suit, but claimed last December after quitting in August, that the town owed him big bucks after allegedly violating his free speech rights, breaching his contract, interfering with the contract and defaming him.  And now we’ll probably never know exactly why Scanlon bailed, because the settlement approved last night that he signed last week prevents either he or council members from talking about it.  Council members discussed the deal with the town attorney for a reported 3 minutes or so before agreeing to the terms.  Scanlon’s successor, Ryan Mahoney, just started work this week.

Remember it’s Bike To Work Day across most of Colorado today–  In Glenwood Springs there’ll be 4 breakfast stations, at the West Glenwood and Carbondale park & rides… at Alpine Bank, and at City Hall Plaza.  They’ll all offer breakfast burritos, donuts, coffee, & juice free from 7 to 9.  You can also sign up for some terrific prizes.  In Aspen, just as last year a variety of stops will be set up in Paepcke Park on Main Street.  If you’re signed up in the Drive Less Save More program and bike to work, you’ll be automatically entered in the drawings–  prizes will be drawn for longest commute, most fun flair, best commute picture, longest commute–  there are even prizes for biking to work for the first time!
