Peak Moment 151: Baked in Telluride: Making Dough in a Tough Economy



Biting into a fresh-baked cookie from "Baked in Telluride" is a double treat — a yummy goody that also supports a local independent business. Owner Jerry Green has been going "green" for decades before it became fashionable. He shares the challenges of running an independent business in a tourist town while competing with bakeries thousands of miles away. While a town councilor, Jerry helped shape projects like affordable public housing and public transportation.
