Road to Lake Canyon

A dirt road in Duchesne County is a headache for surrounding neighbors sick of dealing with the dust. According to Duchesne County Commissioner Ron Winterton, there is a lot of oil field activity on the road to Lake Canyon and in the past the oil field companies used to provide dust suppression but no longer do. “Now that the companies are not doing it, the residents want the County to do it,” shares Winterton. “We would love to but unless we have some partnerships on it we don’t have the funds for what is needed to control the dust.” During the Commissioners’ discussion on the topic earlier this month, it was agreed that the County could grade the road but that there is no option to widen or pave it.

Kristin never planned to work in news radio but has thoroughly enjoyed being part of the news team at KVEL. Her love of literature and writing developed in high school which led her to study English Literature and Technical Writing at BYU. She received her BA in English from BYU in 2005 and studied at UVU in Orem for 2 semesters to become a Certified Technical Writer in 2006. Two months after completion she began her dream job of being a stay-at-home mom.  As mother of 2 energetic kids, she began writing from home for the KVEL news team in 2011 and considers it the perfect fit as a full time mom and part time writer.
