Firefighters Battle Massive Fires In Colorado
"More than two thousand firefighters are battling four major blazes in Colorado. Michael Hayden is incident commander for a wildfire in the northern part of the state we're working with the other fires right now trying to share resources we said just about everything we have out and recalling from resources all over the nation. Colorado public radio reporter Michael Elizabeth Sacrifice joins us from the town of Eagle that's near a large fire in western. Colorado. Hi there. Hi there. Thanks for having me on. So tell me exactly where you are what you can see what's happening there. I'm not far from Dot Sarah which was one of the areas on pre evacuation notice which means folks need to be ready to leave at any moment the Grizzly creek fires burning in a canyon nearby about a mile east of glenwood springs and this Canyon is one of Colorado's natural treasures. One firefighter I spoke with described seeing it burn as heartbreaking. This fire has shut down interstate seventy, which is the main east-west highway into and through the mountain communities, and this shutdown is causing major issues for businesses and commuters, and because of this is the number one fire priority the nation to try and get it contained and the highway has been shut down for more than a week already. So the number one priority in the nation. But as we mentioned, there's three other big fires in Colorado right now, what's going on with those? Yeah more than one hundred and thirty thousand acres have burned in total and a few hundred people are evacuated some from their homes others from campsites and trails. There hasn't been any structure loss yet firefighters are working really hard to try and keep that from happening short the playing. The penguins fire north of Grand. Junction is now the fourth largest fire in Colorado's recorded history and these fires are hardly contained all at this point and it's really smoky close to these fires especially. But around the whole state, the State Health Department has issued an air quality alert for the front range and surrounding counties, which warns that at risk folks especially should stay inside let children older adults in those with heart or lung disease. Yeah. I was GONNA ask how the pandemic is affecting all this. How what do we know about how covid nineteen may be affecting? Either the people trying to flee the fires of the the firefighters trying to fight them. Right, the State Health Department warns that there is an overlap the people who are most impacted by wildfire smoke are the people who are most at risk for the worst symptoms of Corona virus. The state said the meeting of Kobe nineteen and the smoke is quote a real public health issue. Some research has shown that exposure to air pollution can worsen the outcomes of catching the virus, and while fire smoke can irritate weakened the lungs and immune system making someone more susceptible to infection the state suggestion to stay inside to avoid the smoke they say is now even more important because it can also help stop the spread of Code Nineteen as well. What do we know by the way about what has caused these Colorado I? Let's see Mr with me. Start Your back high. I was asking about the cause of the first. Yeah. Going there under an investigation, the largest fire was caused by lightning. And right now in the Grizzly Creek fire, the canyon fire was likely sparked by a chain dragging on the highway or maybe a cigarette out the window at originated in traffic. But what's really fueling these fires statewide drought and heat, and we haven't really seen those monsoon rains just yet. Right thank you so much for your reporting. Stay safe. Appreciate it thanks for having me on. That is reporter Michael Elizabeth sacrifice with Colorado public radio.

Bureau of Land Management Defends Move to Oil-And-Gas Town in Colorado
"The idea had been floated for years but President. Trump is actually doing it is administration is moving the headquarters of the Bureau of land management the Federal Agency that oversees drilling mining and recreation on about a tenth of all land in the US. The agency's main foot main office is now in a traditional oil and gas town in Colorado. Npr's Kirk siegler reports the new headquarters a long way from Washington DC. Like nine thousand nine hundred miles to the small western Colorado City of Grand Junction here. It's impossible to ignore. You are surrounded by federal public. Land the towering Mesas Red Rock Canyons and the Colorado National Monument Lobby the Acting Director William Perry penalty caught flack after announcing the move because of the other tenants in this office building their Chevron upstairs and on the main floor right next to the BLM's new glass entryway Colorado's lead oil and gas lobbying firm. You can't help but notice when you walk in. This office is right next to the Colorado oil and gas the Kogo Office and I'm just thankful it's not a marijuana dispensary. There's no dearth of pot shops around here but the agency says it's also hard to find an office space where the industry doesn't have a presence. Grand Junction is surrounded by public lands. That produce a lot of oil and natural gas. You know frankly. Let's be real. The oil patch can always afford to fly to Washington and sit down with somebody in Washington. The people can't do it farmers and ranchers and people from small community and county commissioners in a crisp wight Western shirt and Black Bolo tie the six-foot-five pen-li says the General Services Administration found this space. I think the more important story is that were out here. Were in the local community and locals can come and see us and we're just a you know a short drive away from a lot of people who would never think of flying to Washington. Dc to sit down with the director for penalty. This move is about decentralizing the US government the seventy four year old attorney spent most of his career at the Conservative Mountain states legal foundation re challenged the BLM in cases representing miners ranchers and recently Utah counties who fought bears. Ears National Monument. Some Westerners have long complained that the agencies leaders in Washington are disconnected with rural resource dependent communities here in Grand Junction Mesa County. Commissioner Rose Puglisi pushed hard for the relocation we have great relationships with our local field offices but ultimately we've learned that the decisions are made in Washington DC where they don't really even know where Mesa County is or the impacts of their decisions on our economy. Puglisi is a Republican but there has been some bipartisan support in Colorado Anyway for the relocation in part because the government is moving higher paying leadership. Jobs out here but mostly. Democrats and many conservationists are fighting this. They lost a bid to strip funding for the move but they did convince the Government Accountability Office to launch an inquiry. A lot of people come here like walk. Dogs defined right in activist and environmental filmmaker. Cody Perry is in. Bangs Canyon is a popular recreation site just to the edge of the Grand Junction sprawl. Is this public lands. That belongs to not just the people here in this county but all Americans he points out that the vast majority of BLM staff is already living and working full time in the rural west any worries that removing leaders from the halls of power and DC will turn the agency into a backwater. But he thinks that's by design. I think it's an absolute effort to undermine and dismantle an agency where essentially removing institutionalized knowledge that is being basically dismantled by industry actors. That's crazy talk. There's no other way to say back at the. Blm's still mostly empty offices near the city's Small Airport Acting Director William Perry pen-li says if anything the BIELEMA staffing up to carry out the administration's public land's agenda. Why in the world would we fire? People are dismantling agency this critical to accomplish your goals like energy independence like increasing recreational access like decreasing the likelihood of wildfires all across the West but for the third straight year.

"That was interior. Secretary David Bernhardt touting that we're getting more energy out of less land. What he isn't saying. Whether the L will definitely move its headquarters to Colorado or when that could happen. Republican congressman got tipped in hopes it does happen. And he joins us now. Get morning. Congressman. Good morning. Good to be with you. Thanks for being on with this. Of course, I'm biased. I love the idea of being on the western slope in grand junction. I'm sure you like the idea as well. You know, we do we've seen a tremendous effort made by the community over in grand junction to be identify infrastructure to make sure that a move by the OM to the west would be workable in grand junction. The beat the best location. The governor though, has said that Denver is the most likely site, even though he would prefer it to be grand junction. Why not Denver? Well, we wanna make sure that when we're having to be and being closest to Hawaiian that they're managing in a good central location for Boyens throughout the west grand junction of the obvious choice. We're making sure that we've got infrastructure and play community is reached out to the airlines in terms of being able to make sure that we can get flights that are going to be necessary to be able to get. Back to Washington to all the efforts being made in grand junction. And we hope we'll be able to get good bipartisan support to be able to promote that with the secretary. Hey, congressman on that note, are most of the people, especially the western governors, are they great with the idea of feel good about it? Even if it may be isn't into their state, at least that it should be westward because the land is out our way makes most sense to have the Bill out here where the land is there was obviously movements that were going on in Utah, Wyoming visited with Liz, Cheney on it. They've loved to be able to see it there, but we're a good simple located in Colorado for all the lands. And I think when we look at the location in grand junction that's going to be the best spot. Can you quantify what it means for jobs? And for the economy there, in grand junction, able, I appreciate you bringing that up when we talked about the economic recovery Denver metropolitan areas been doing great. But a lot of our rural areas of continued to struggle for just now starting to see the real economic. Momentum going on to be able to bring the west that provides economic opportunity in our communities would open the door actually for some other agencies fish and wildlife perhaps to be able to move out west as well. It'd be narrative away, and that they have to manage our communities could use that type of support and something that will encourage and I'm assuming dove tailing off, what April said a better use of resources to from the government, because you'll have, again, people here, managing the land, better use of our tax dollars in the process. You know, I think that's probably one of the big concerns that has it really been addressed. Because when we're working really using the resources wisely, just adept in between Washington DC, and we're deal. I'm lanes primarily located which are in the west, the scoring creating opportunity to be able to get some cost efficiencies and better results for the people who live there as well. Congressman, we're going to run at that. Thanks for the few minutes. We got with you. Thank you property owners in Stapleton can start voting today on whether the development, should get a new name, members of Stapleton's master community association have a month to return their ballots. The rename Stapleton for all groups supporting making that change. But says this vote may not reflect everyone living in Stapleton right now, we're talking live with board chair Lewis stone, accor-. Good morning. Good morning. But we're, we're people aware of, of mayor Stapleton's history before, this voter was this brought to their attention about these connections with the KKK years and years ago. Off and on actually since I think the late nineteen nineties, there have been folks in Denver, who has brought up the history of Benjamin stable than I so I would say that it's something that is probably folks who currently live in the community today since since Stapleton. It's actually a lot of a lot of residents were not necessarily Denver native. They might not have been aware of the history of Benjamin Stapleton. And so there have been groups most recently in two thousand fifteen black lives matter of fifty to eighty fired the neighborhood to make folks aware of the clan history, and the connection to need. Benjamin Stapleton membership in the Klan but it actually goes back much earlier than that. And that's actually how the community declarations of the masterpiece unity association actually have that process or how to change that community name mess. Because in the early two thousand folks brought up this issue. And about a community name that is connected to a clansman. And so that, that's why there's a provision in between declarations. You know, was from folks bringing that issue actually from the very beginning of this community. We also heard a lot about it when Walker Stapleton was running for governor and kept getting brought up. We've read that your membership. Your association includes homeowners who are primarily white. Do they have the same version to the name, Stapleton, their black counterparts would have do you think? I think you would have to ask the community members vote is about it is. Yes, I think that demographically Staples in property owners are majority white, but also I, I am not a black property owner. I am a mixed person of color, a property owner and I see this issue, even if it doesn't have personally affected me I take seriously. The folks who said that this disassociation of this name is harmful to them and hurts them. And so, you know, as a neighbor and trying to be good neighbor, I wanna listen to people's concerns. And so, I think that's the demographics of, of the neighborhood do not necessarily determine the outcome up the votes. She's with rename Stapleton for all board chair list on this. Thank you for your time. Thank you. Good to have you those ballots go out this week, we should know in the next month or so, what that community decides to do with the name nine forty eight.

Point Is there, enough separation that it's not even like I'll. Give you one hundred bucks for it I'll take you out to. Like, it's just you just do it yeah and it's universal like some some guys have relinquished, their jersey number just on their own but like one where everybody would say everyone would. Just believe like you just have to it's not because you're being a. Nice guy like you have, to do I, would, say that level I would say yeah. MLB, all star going to rookie league yeah I? Would say up till what's your AA I think that's? The, point, where you can you go This is my number You know I'm interested. To see, I mean interested to see how. He does We were discussing that. I was. Discussing this with somebody. That came down to Oskar blues last night Like there's nothing. Matt Holliday, can do either he's healthy and he feels like his? Swing is right or it's not, I mean there's I doubt there's. A progression of Matt Holliday right, that Matt holidays in grand junction and then he goes to Hartford and then he goes to Albuquerque like he's going to spend some amount of time in grand. Junction. Couldn't take a lot of BP get a couple of bats at night just to, get sharpened right and then. He and then he's going to go the Rockies, or he's gonna say now I don't have it there's. Not gonna be like like, with Brendan Rogers there's gonna be a lot. Of judging of Brandon Rogers if Matt Holliday feels good he's going to be on the MLB Rosser you don't think maybe a game or two in triple just to kind of Because he's like in grand junction you know it's like okay Wing the but it's like you gotta go. To, triple eight to make sure you. Can actually, like compete, yeah I don't know you know yeah and. Then The listener. Yesterday. Said well You could make keizer Albuquerque he's not that, much further away if. Any then then grand junction so I'm honestly surprised. You. Went to grand junction, yeah You know why, didn't you just go to, Albuquerque but like I say I said. To, him it's a psychological thing right. Like Albuquerque might be about. The same distance but which is not obviously, no grand junction is. Closer to Denver yeah but but maybe it's not. Right Maybe it's not So much further, than grand junction especially when you're talking about, flights and. Things but it, but I, says psychological thing. He's in Colorado that's where he, wants to be doesn't want to be. In New Mexico so, we'll, see, right exactly but but. Here's the daily. He signed Sunday he could. Have been here Technically Right so imagine that you, know. Right go for three three games, here and then he's only been to two games here on Sunday. Morning. Right and then and then he gets option down to rookie bowl these days in Colorado the entire. Time, yeah I think he will take when he's just about. Ready he'll play in a couple of games in. Albuquerque, yeah And these. But the main point is they you're. Not really going to glean a, lot like we're reading a lot into Broncos training camp right. Right not gonna be able to read a lot into mount holidays at bats either he feels good and he's swinging back? Good? And you just give them, a, chance at the big league level, or he just doesn't have it it's not going to be very. Nuanced. So here's my question because you're you're obviously on this more than I am being Rockies fan is. He, going to be off the bench or is he actually. Going to be in the lineup is what's the.
