  • The Town of Paonia's Board endured three abrupt resignations in the past four months. Kate Redmond reports on Thursday, trustees discussed slowing down and codifying how board resignations happen. Plus, schools have become contentious. COVID regulations and mask mandates led to contested school board elections. Districts have also been a battle ground when it comes to discussions of race, LGBTQ rights, and mental health. Districts face challenges from parents claiming they have broken the law and are liable for damages. Now, as KOTO's Julia Caulfield reports, Telluride School District is part of that conversation.

  • County Clerks from Delta, Montrose, and Ouray Counties are participating in a panel discussion tomorrow hosted by the nonpartisan League of Women Voters of the Uncompaghre Valley. They’ll discuss this year’s elections, including changes to precincts, election security, and how vote tabulation works. Carol Howe, VP of the local League, talks to Gavin Dahl about why they're convening this panel. Plus, the northern skies of the Navajo Nation are clearer after the closure of the coal-powered Navajo Generating Station. But the region also lost jobs and tax revenue. For Rocky Mountain Community Radio’s series on fossil fuel transitions, KZMU’s Justin Higginbottom reports on the legacy of Navajo Nation coal power and what comes next, a proposed hydropower plant. *Correction: Gavin mistakenly said Ouray County Clerk Michelle Nauer is a Democrat. She is unaffiliated.*
