CON GAMES: Pitkin County Sheriffs Finally Shut Up About Aspen Cocaine

The latest twist in the Aspen cocaine bust blues is actually not the news that Michael Cleverly of Woody Creek—artist, writer, self-appointed “journalist”—is now being compelled to show his mug July 25, 2011, in front of a Grand Jury in Denver, Colorado. The real news is that when the current... Read more →

CON GAMES: Aspen Cocaine The Shame Of The City

The willingness of the Aspen community to adopt a don’t ask/don’t tell policy when it comes to cocaine trafficking—and then to slavishly say they like it that way—is shameful, disgraceful, and all but indefensible. Want to hear the latest joke? Both Pitkin County Sheriff Joe DiSalvo and his... Read more →

CON GAMES: George Aldrich’s Death Is On Aspen

ASPEN, COLORADO — George Aldrich, just 28, a lift operator at Snowmass Mountain, was so bombed after he left Eric’s bar in downtown Aspen one night that he got on a bus, very likely got off at the wrong stop, somehow wandered across the Maroon Creek Bridge and fell to his death, there to await... Read more →

CON GAMES: Sheriffs, Guns, And Whammo

In the Wild West—out here in Colorado, Arizona, and other homes where the buffaloes roam—some of the Wyatt Burps in the region are turning a tempest into a Tea Party. Why? Because they have decided that they are the law, ponder, and if you don’t like it you can finish that sarsaparilla and head... Read more →

CON GAMES: Sheriff Bob’s Sanctuary City

What we DON’T have here in Pitkin County is a failure to communicate. What do have is an egregious example of a public official who is taken at his word by local newspapers no matter how ridiculous the patter. Perhaps you’ve heard of Pitkin County Sheriff Bob Braudis. He’s the publicly... Read more →

CON GAMES: Peace Of Crap

I promise to inveigle in with both feet on the ongoing bitch-slap about what went down when Pitkin County Deputy Sheriff Joe DiSalvo blew his top (again). But I want to wait another day or so to see what the local newspapers come up with before I comment. In the meantime, in-between time, ain’t... Read more →

CON GAMES: Bath Party Wins Big In Aspen

Where had I seen this movie before? Or was it a book? Maybe even a history book. But this story was blurred and not instantly knowable. There I was election night in the bar at Jimmy’s downtown, trying to make sense of what I now knew (finally) to be true: that Aspen is a one-party town and that you... Read more →


Pitkin County Sheriff Bob Braudis is a legend and an icon–but is he a liar to boot? When asked point-blank if he did drugs during “Squirm Night” last week on GrassRoots TV,  the Sheriff replied: “Not since I’ve been Sheriff.” Truth or dare? The Sheriff has been able... Read more →
