Hip enough for movie stars and small enough to walk to work, this old mining town has reached a crossroads. There is a growing upper class in this ski resort at the end of a spectacular box canyon, including part-time residents in million-dollar homes perched on hillsides above town or hidden among the pines and aspens. The question now is whether Telluride should build on its appeal to the rich by developing its lush, 880-acre valley floor.

Thank you for your article. Rarely is the issue of consumptive animal management discussed with such candor and fairness to both viewpoints. Too often hunters are depicted as either blood-soaked savages or noble inheritors of our ancestors' heritage; animal-rightists are described as either nurturing defenders of abused wildlife or crazy bunny huggers with no common sense. As usual, none of these extremes are correct. This topic is a heartfelt one for both sides.

Backed into a canyon, surrounded on three sides by the San Juan Mountains, this one-main-drag town can easily seem claustrophobic. Narrow sidewalks teem with tourists in hiking boots. Shoppers spill into the street. A riverside nature trail is clogged with joggers, Labradors and diners walking off heavy meals. And it's still months from snow season.

The entertainment industry might be in a tizzy over whether to join Barbra Streisand and gay-rights advocates in their boycott of Aspen, Colo., this holiday, but what Hollywood celebrities think about the issue holds little weight with residents a few hours away in Telluride. Locals there are more concerned with how their town is being discriminated against.

Signs in Telluride, Co., shop windows are urging residents to "Vote Dead" in an election Tuesday to decide if Jerry Garcia and the rest of the Grateful Dead can perform in that city this summer.

AFTER many hours on interstates and highways, we felt as though we had made a wrong turn as we steered onto the spur to Telluride. How could it be that this renowned southwestern Colorado destination -- home to breathtakingly steep ski runs and a perennially sold-out summertime bluegrass festival -- is off a two-lane, dead-end rural road? But two miles in, there it was: A quaint Victorian mining town dwarfed by the surrounding 14,000-foot palisades of the San Juan Mountains.

When Jake Burns' friends leave town he keeps in touch by e-mail, and when he needs to do a school report on what's left of war-torn Yugoslavia, he contacts people there over the Internet computer network.
