The fatal shooting of 18 year old Michael Brown and the choking death of Eric Garner by Police officers has sparked a national debate about law enforcement's relationship with African Americans, use of force and what can appear to be a militarized police force with use of armored vehicles and military issued assault rifles. Ali Lightfoot speaks with Delta police chief Robert Thomas about these issues.

About 100 people attended the forum in Paonia last week.
They came to hear different perspectives on the local economy, what’s working and what’s not, and how to make things better.
