Paonia Purple

  • This week on The Pen and The Sword features Marcello Cabus in conversation with KVNF's Gavin Dahl about his self-published memoir Pioneers of Leisure. The 300-page book is packed full of his escapades as a smuggler and drug dealer, exploring his struggles with addiction and failed relationships. You can learn more about his role in the history of Paonia Purple here. He also explains why he’s hopeful now, as one of his biggest dreams to make the world a better place could still come true.
  • Paonia trustees are zeroing in on the water system for the town and surrounding mesas. Kate Redmond brings us a report from the town meeting earlier this week. Plus, the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission is determining whether companies need to commit more money upfront. Financial assurance - commonly known as a bond - guarantees the state can afford to clean up a well site if a company goes bankrupt or walks away. KVNF’s Chad Reich reports for the Rocky Mountain Community Radio collaboration on fossil fuel transitions.
