    Phillips stars in “The Creep Behind the Camera”

    Roaring Fork Valley resident Josh Phillips stars in the feature film “The Creep Behind the Camera,” which will play for one day only at the Crystal Theatre at 2 p.m. on Dec. 6. Originally from northern California, Phillips has been an on-again, off again Carbondale resident since the early 1990’s. While he is well known in the valley as an accomplished rock/blues guitarist, Phillips also has an acting career that many were unaware of, according to a press release. Long-time locals may remember him as the front man for 12BarFlies, Big Swifty, Zec Nebula, Fire In the Asylum, and more recently Betty Ford Explorer, The Roosters, and the acoustic duo Josh and Ananda. After spending the 1990’s in the Roaring Fork Valley as a ski-lift operator by day and rocker by night, Phillips headed back to Los Angeles where he spent 11 years working as an actor in films, television shows, commercials, video games and anime voice-overs. Upon returning to Colorado in 2010, one of his Los Angeles contacts suggested that Phillips read for the starring role of Vic Savage in a Colorado Springs-based independent film. read more →

    Why is RFSD considering changing course?

    As Chief Academic Officer of the Roaring Fork School District, Dr. Rob Stein has spearheaded the monumental task of bringing our communities together to create an inspiring new vision for our schools. The task that lies ahead — actually bringing that vision to fruition — is even more daunting. Stein, who led an extraordinary transformation of Denver’s Manual High School after it was closed as a low-performing school, has the experience and expertise needed to take on that task. He is not afraid to ask tough questions and to be asked tough questions by others. His responses always cut to the chase. He has an exceptional ability to think outside the box and find innovative solutions. So why has the school board, with two newly appointed (not elected) board members, suddenly decided to change course and consider extending Dr. Diana Sirko’s contract after it expires this spring? The next board meeting is less than three weeks away, including Thanksgiving break during which the school district is closed for an entire week. I urge the school board to give the public more than this short time frame to weigh in on this critical matter. read more →
