fracking

  • The city of Grand Junction is ramping up efforts to increase recycling, reports the Daily Sentinel. Last year the city purchased Curbside Recycling ahead of the changes. Abortions are up 33% in Colorado reports the Denver Post. A study from the Society of Family Planning shows that Colorado isn’t alone as abortion providers are helping more patients from states where abortion has been severely restricted or outlawed. The switch between daylight saving and standard time is jarring for humans and deadly for deer. Colorodoans concerned about climate change are pushing policy makers to end fracking permits. One local liquor store owner talks to KVNF about three Propositions on the November ballot.
  • A federal judge has vacated a plan for drilling and fracking in the North Fork and Thompson Divide areas. KDNK’s Morgan Neely has more. Plus, Hinsdale County Sheriff Chris Kambish speaks to reporter Laura Palmisano about Off-Highway Vehicle education and enforcement. OHVs are permitted on a three-mile section of State Highway 149 in Hinsdale County for the season starting this coming weekend. This allows OHVs to access the Alpine Loop, a backcountry byway that connects Lake City, Silverton, and Ouray.
  • This week on Local Motion, we listen to the audio version of a documentary that played a variety of film festivals over the past year before premiering on Rocky Mountain PBS last weekend. KVNF freelance reporter and Western Colorado University professor Chad Reich is a multimedia producer who runs Laccolith Media. His film is called “A Monolithic Folly: Fracking Colorado’s North Fork Valley.” It chronicles those who will be adversely affected by fracking on land above Paonia and Hotchkiss.
