  • There were loud calls for gun reform in Colorado after the mass shooting at a Boulder supermarket. Lawmakers delivered on some requests. Other new laws are still in the works a year later. For Capitol Coverage, Scott Franz reports on the ongoing recovery from that tragedy, as well as some new efforts launching this year to tackle gun violence. Plus, are old cans of paint accumulating in your basement or shed? Kate Redmond reports there is a Colorado State program that can help you with that.

  • Chronically homeless people make up about 20 percent of the unhoused population. Many approaches to homelessness restrict access to services based on so-called self-improvement criteria.

  • As mines close, they leave behind a troubling legacy: leaking methane. In November, over 100 countries committed to taking the problem more seriously, pledging to cut methane emissions 30 percent by 2030.

For Rocky Mountain Community Radio’s series on fossil fuel transition, KVNF's Stephanie Maltarich reports.
