The process of creating the Carbondale Creative District took another step forward Monday night when close to 60 people turned out for a meeting. Amy Kimberly, director of Carbondale Council on the Arts and Humanities and spokesperson for the project, presented project history and updates, and asked the crowd to weigh in on a few logo ideas. KDNK's Amy Hadden Marsh was there and asked attendees about their impressions of the new Creative District.
Fire districts near oil and gas operations get a lot of funding from energy exploration, but they also have to deal with fires and other incidents when they happen. Colorado River Fire Rescue, a hybrid department using both volunteer and career firefighters, is one such district. They collaborate with energy companies like WPX Energy for training and support on the scene of a fire. KDNK’s Eric Skalac reports.
