More than a dozen debris flows buried the road to the ghost town of Crystal under as much as 15' of mud, rocks and trees

KDNK's News Director Morgan Neely has updates on New Castle firing its (now former) top cop, Tony Pagni, after he allegedly threatened a longtime neighbor with an assault rifle Friday night while intoxicated. Also, the Forest Service closes a portion of the Lead King Loop after monsoon rains bury the road to the Crystal Mill up to 15' deep in debris. Capitol Reporter Scott Franz says the secretary of state is poised to wrap up recounts requested by right-wing election conspiracy theorists like the recently arrested Tina Peters. Eric Galatas has a story on why dental care is so necessary, yet so hard to receive in Colorado. And Wyoming's Casper Troopers, one of the oldest drum and bugle corps in the country, gets ready to "DRINK YOUR MILKSHAKE!"

Morgan is KDNK's News Director. He comes to KDNK with public radio passion and experience. He was a news host, reporter, and opps guy at APR and also worked with Pitkin County for a couple of years. He says that getting back to public radio and reporting is where he wants to be.
