Moab, UT – Tuesday on RadioWest we begin a series of programs broadcasting live from Moab, Utah. We'll be in the new Grand County library talking about how Moab is living up to the ideals of the New West. Environmentalist had hoped that the city would a new economic model, that it would shift away from industries like mining and cattle. Instead they envisioned a community that has as its center piece the beauty of the land and its remarkable terrain. A few decades into this experiment, locals say the results have been mixed.
