  • Many ranchers in the West see wolves as a threat to their livestock, and livelihood. But one ranch family was inspired by wolves to rethink the way they manage their land. Ashley Ahearn saddled up for the Mountain West News Bureau to tell their story, and open a three-part series on women ranchers. Plus, we hear a clip of Rain & Shine from Calla Rose Ostrander about the iconic sandhill crane.

  • Town councils not only represent citizens, they have significant influence in shaping the direction of municipalities. Board of trustees elections are coming up on April 5th in towns within KVNF’s listening area, including Paonia, Hotchkiss, Crawford, Cedaredge, and Norwood. Kate Redmond reports. Plus, as the Biden Administration speeds up the transition away from fossil fuels to combat climate change, many battles between conservationists and business interests are being waged over federal lands. For our Rocky Mountain Community Radio collaboration, Will Walkey reports from KHOL in Wyoming, where millions of acres and thousands of livelihoods are at stake.

  • 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.
  • Last year's shooting of an Austin woman by Delta County Sheriff's Deputy Nolan Davis left lingering questions, like why the Deputy's mother was in the car on that fateful day. The family of Paige Pierce is now bringing a civil suit in State Court against the deputy and his supervisor. Kate Redmond reports. Plus, on the anniversary of the January 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol, how is national polarization playing out in local classrooms? Matt Hoisch with KOTO in Telluride checked in with government teachers in San Miguel County to see what it’s like teaching about our country in divided times.
