Last October the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) announced the names of 44 towns across the state awarded road improvement monies from a competitive grant program called RAMP. In Ridgway, Colorado the community will be going to the ballot box on April 1st to determine whether or not they will make use of their $10.4 million one-time-only, use-it-or-lose-it award.
KVNF's JT Thomas speaks with Ridgway mayor, John Clark and community members, Tammee Tuttle and Jill Markey.
Slow Internet is a fact of life for many rural Americans, and residents of Western Colorado are no exception. There have been many failed attempts to bring faster Internet to KVNF's listening area, the latest being Eagle Net.
Now, there's yet another idea on the table. The Delta Montrose Electric Association is considering expanding broadband to much of rural Delta and Montrose counties. We begin our report at a local non-profit organization whose business is seriously impacted by the slow internet speeds.
KVNF is committed to bring you live music all summer long- and now as a special gift to our listeners we bring you LAKE STREET DIVE in the spring! LIVE from the Paradise Theater on Friday March 21st. This classically trained band blends jazz, folk, and pop in dangerously charming fashion! And if you aren’t going to their sold out show, then you can tune in and hear them live.
That’s this Friday, March 21st, with opening band "Ages and Ages" starting at 7:30.
