Amy Hadden Marsh

Significant sacred sites were destroyed this past weekend on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation by construction workers on the Dakota Access pipeline. KDNK’s Amy Hadden Marsh takes a look at the significance of the sites.

Thursday night's Nonprofit Spotlight shined on English in Action. Amy Hadden Marsh spoke to executive director Lara Beaulieu, who oversees the administrative and programmatic functions of the organization. Lara is bilingual in Spanish and English and brings more than 20 years of nonprofit sector experience. She says "KDNK makes our community a better place to live. It connects people. It allows different voices to be heard."

Amy Kimberly from Carbondale Arts was our guest on this morning's Nonprofit Spotlight. She says: "We feel these airwaves are important, they connect us, they get information out there that's important, they allow creativity and freedom. There are so many kids that have grown up here on KDNK who are absolutely some of my most favorite adults.  They are the ones that are holding the spirit of the community for the future. I really think that KDNK is a huge part of that. We hope people keep this station thriving."
