Arizona Edition: Yuma City Council Candidate Forum, Teaching, and the Navajo Generating Station

On Arizona Edition, we hear the Yuma City Council candidates debate in a Candidate Forum held by KAWC and KYMA.  Later, an English teacher for San Luis High School shares a story from the classroom.  Finally, KAWC's Lou Gum speaks with Jared Blumenfeld, the Environmental Protection Agency Regional Administrator for the Pacific Southwest, on the need for the Navajo Generating Station, a coal-fired power-plant near the Grand Canyon, to lower its high levels of CO2 emissions...(originally aired 10/09/13)

The entire Yuma City Election forum can be viewed here.

Lou grew up in Tucson and has a long family history in the state of Arizona. He began his public radio career in 1988 at KNAU in Flagstaff as a classical music DJ and has been hooked on public radio since, transitioning to news after trying his hand at several other careers in publishing and commercial broadcasting. Lou has a degree in American Studies from Arizona State University and was KAWC's Morning Edition host for two and half years before becoming News and Operations Director.
