San Miguel County

  • Kate Redmond took a tour last week of the one million gallon tank for the domestic water supply in Paonia. The tank has been offline for years, but now the Public Works Department is preparing it to run again. Plus, a controversial proposal to bring water from the San Luis Valley to Douglas County is now unlikely to become a reality. As KUNC’s Alex Hager reports, county commissioners voted against using American Rescue Plan funds to build the pipeline.
  • 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. But some service providers are attempting to shift the narrative by offering housing first. KGNU's Alexis Kenyon reports from Boulder for the Rocky Mountain Community Radio coalition.
  • 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.
