Congressman Scott Tipton represents Colorado's 3rd District.


Congressman Scott Tipton talks goals and priorities with KDNK’s Amy Hadden Marsh for Part 1 of this month’s congressional update.

Elizabeth Steele

 


Last week President Trump dissolved his Election Integrity Commission with an executive order. As Elizabeth Steele, Election Director for Colorado Common Cause, tells KDNK’s Raleigh Burleigh, the commission’s legacy may go forward under the Department of Homeland Security.

Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams stated that more than 1,400 of the 5,000 that deregistered following his announcement that Colorado would give requested information to the commission have since re-registered.

 

Habitat for Humanity

Amy French, Volunteer Coordinator & Family Services Director at Habitat for Humanity, speaks with Host Diane Johnson about Building Homes, Building Hope, Building Community.

Originally from Mexico, El Javi is now a resident of Colorado, and he finally made it up to the mountains, despite bald tires, to play a few gigs in the valley and to appear on Flow Diggity with DJ Rickdiculous on KDNK. He played solo flamenco guitar and chatted about his art and his life. We heard several songs from his five CDs, and he played four songs live: Trip, Olivia, California and Recuerdo a Paco.

The Shoshone Hydroelectric Power Plant, just east of Glenwood Springs along the Colorado River, was built in 1905. It generates 15 megawatts of power and is a popular rafting spot in the summer. It also holds the state’s oldest water right on the river. For this edition of Sounds of the High Country, KDNK’s Amy Hadden Marsh talks to Emily Benson, editorial fellow at High Country News, about the impact of this single water right. Here's her story: The Tiny Power Plant That Shapes the Colorado River.
