Officials with Connect for Health Colorado, the state’s new online health exchange, said the website saw 79,000 unique visitors for its first day on Monday.

The government shutdown in Washington is limiting access to one Colorado’s most visited places: the Maroon Bells. The road outside of Aspen closed to traffic yesterday during prime leaf-peeping season. Aspen Public Radio’s Marci Krivonen reports.
KVNF recently spoke in Ridgway with Susan Long, manager for the Ouray County Fairgrounds as well as the 4-H Events Center for the past eight years.
Ms. Long and I spent an afternoon touring the rodeo grounds and talking about the association's plans to renovate the fairgrounds' historic WWII-era grandstands, as well as the aging announcer's booth and bucking shoots.
Long says the planned renovations are aimed at increasing safety and bringing more outdoor to the grounds, all while preserving the unique western heritage of the region.
