Colorado Edition: Grim news for Glen Canyon Dam and dealing with grief and loss during the holidays
Glen Canyon Dam: New forecasts for the Colorado River paint a grim picture. Climate change and steady demand are shrinking the water supply for 40 million people.
At the nation's largest dams, that means the ability to generate hydropower could soon be under threat. KUNC's Alex Hager introduces us to the Glen Canyon Dam. What was once a mighty piece of Western infrastructure is now possibly unable to function.
This story is part of ongoing coverage of the Colorado River, produced by KUNC and supported by the Walton Family Foundation.
Holiday grief: The holiday season is here. It's a festive time for many, with families getting together to celebrate — but the holidays can be especially hard for some.
Many are mourning the loss of a loved one and dealing with profound grief. University of Colorado College of Nursing nurse practitioners Heather Coats and Kerry Peterson gave some insight into how to manage grief and depression over the holidays.
