I’m not a Colorado native (did you know that "I'm from Missouri" means "I'm skeptical of the matter and not easily convinced?") but I have lived here for most of my life and couldn't imagine leaving. After graduating from Colorado State University, I did what everyone wants to do; I moved to the mountains and skied, hiked, and hid from responsibility! Our listeners in the mountains may know me from my time in Steamboat Springs and Vail or as the voice of the Battle Mountain Huskies Hockey team in Vail.

I now call Denver home and I dig the easy access to the mountains as well as the live music, theater and pro & college hockey. When I am not enjoying any of the previous, I love to cook, work on improving my barbecue or constantly rediscover albums I forgot I had in an ever growing music collection.

Somewhere between the overpasses for Downing and Logan streets, as Doug Newkirk headed north on Interstate 25 in Denver, the weather swallowed his car — as it would 103 other vehicles along a roughly mile-and-a-half stretch. Newkirk found himself cast into a nightmare of spinning red taillights and utter helplessness, one part of a chain-reaction traffic accident unlike any that police investigators have seen.

NPR/ProPublica Investigates: Grave Science

Lead in text: 
A joint investigation by NPR and ProPublica found the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command’s process of identifying remains is hindered by several layers of bureacracy, an aversion to risk and a reluctance to lead with DNA testing.

America’s effort to bring home its war dead is slow, inefficient and stymied by outdated methods.
