A Carbondale-based mobile preschool program run by the Valley Settlement Project recently doubled in size, thanks to the donation of a school bus from the Roaring Fork School District. The bus was converted into a mobile classroom a few weeks ago, and has been cruising 12 low-income neighborhoods in Glenwood Springs and Carbondale, educating about 45 children along the way. KDNK's Nelson Harvey hopped on recently to see if he could learn a thing or two.
KDNK news is sad to report that according to the Udall Family, the body of James "Randy" Udall was found Wednesday in a remote area of the Wind River Range in Wyoming.
In a press release issued last night, the Udall family writes that though an autopsy is forthcoming, it appears Randy died of natural causes. They go on to thank the Sublette County Sheriff Dave Lankford, his staff, Tip Top Seach and Rescue, the United States Forest Service, the Wyoming Air National Guard and all other involved in their tireless effort over the past several days.
The family writes "Randy left this earth doing what he loved most: hiking in his most favorite mountain range in the world... The entire Udall family is touched beyond words by the tremendous outpouring of support from people around the county. Randy's passing is a reminder to all of us to live every day to its fullest, just as he did."
He will be missed.

And ear-piercing fire alarm interrupted Tuesday's Garfield County commissioner hearing about the proposed revisions to the county's land use code.

One section of the code pertains to county standards for wetlands and water body protections, which may be deleted if the current recommendations are approved, including the existing 35-foot construction setback. Commissioners say that state and Federal regulations are enough.
KDNK's Amy Hadden Marsh spoke with Army Corps of Engineers biologist Leslie McWhirter about Federal regulations and found out that no setbacks are required.
