Carbondale's community supported, weekly newspaper


  • Will Grandbois thumbnail

    Editor Will Grandbois grew up in and out of The Valley Journal office thanks to his mom, Becky Young, who was involved in the founding of three Carbondale papers. He got involved with The Sun as the webmaster and later earned his wings hands-on at the Post Independent (his degree’s actually in Anthropology). He holds “office hours” at noon Thursdays at the Pour House (the source of this absurd pic).

    “Duke of Distribution” Tommy Sands is responsible for making sure the paper arrives at our 33 newsstands and 50+ other locations from Glenwood to Aspen on either Wednesday night or Thursday morning. He’s also an Uber and Lyft driver, and likely has some stories to tell as a result.

    Megan Tackett is the relative newcomer to the Sopris Sun staff, but she’s been having a blast. Sundance, her 90-pound canine companion, also feels at home in the office. She’s loving getting to know the community from such a unique perspective and is glad to have a byline in a newspaper again (her journalism background has taken her from magazines to international governments, but she’s missed her roots).
