- Key DifferentiatorThe Park County Republican and Fairplay Flume (USPS684-550) (ISSN 1085-181X) is published every Friday and is the official newspaper in Park County, Colorado. The Flume, established in 1879, is almost as old as the county it serves - Park County, Colorado, which was formed in 1861. Park County lies just west of Jefferson County, the westernmost and most mountainous of the seven counties that are typically used in defining metro Denver. Headquartered in Bailey, an unincorporated town in the northeastern part of the county, The Flume covers all areas of life in Park County, including business, politics, the courts, weather, crime, festivals, fires and more. At the core of the stories in The Flume are the residents themselves, now numbering more than 16,000 in a county that's 83 percent bigger than Rhode Island and nearly as big as Delaware. The Flume is also the newspaper that carries legal notices for Park County and advertisements focusing on area businesses. While stories focus mainly on Park County, coverage can extend beyond county boundaries because of strong ties of residents to work, shopping and recreational opportunities in nearby counties. Population centers include the following: Alma - 10,350 feet above sea level, it's an old mining town that is now a bedroom community for several Summit County ski resorts. It is about 16 miles south of Breckenridge. It is one of two incorporated towns in Park County, the other being Fairplay.
