Hinsdale County purchased a peninsula and island on Lake San Cristobal just over a year ago, with the help of a $1.3 million dollar Great Outdoors Colorado grant and a $200,000 dollar community fundraising campaign. As Laura Palmisano reports for KVNF, the county now plans to move ahead with renovations at the property.
Laura joined KVNF in 2014. She was the news director for two years and now works as a freelance reporter covering Colorado's Western Slope. Laura is an award-winning journalist with work recognized by the Society of Professional Journalists, Colorado Broadcasters Association, and RTDNA. In 2015, she was a fellow for the Institute for Justice & Journalism. Her fellowship project, a three-part series on the Karen refugee community in Delta, Colorado, received a regional Edward R. Murrow Award.
