Jane Bachrach, The Sopris Sun

When Carbondale-based entrepreneur and philanthropist Jim Calaway died this week at age 87, he left behind a strong legacy of support and friendship in the Roaring Fork Valley. Last year, Calaway spoke at length with Steve Skinner on the podcast Echoes about his humble roots, how he made his fortune, and why he decided to give almost all of it away to causes in which he believes. Hear excerpts of the interview. KDNK will air it in its entirety Tuesday, December 18 at 4:30 p.m.

Representing The Sopris Sun, editor Will Grandbois, board member Barbara Dills and photographer Jane Bachrach are joined by Corey Simpson of Thunder River Theatre Company, Dr. Carrie Hauser of Colorado Mountain College, Scott Gilbert of Habitat of the Roaring Fork Valley and Wes Boyd of Colorado Animal Rescue.
