Controversy over public lands access and use in southeast Utah has been a major issue for decades.

In this episode of Talking Heads, KSJD's Jeff Pope and Gail Binkly from the Four Corners Free Press compare and contrast the election choices in southeast Utah and southwest Colorado, and discuss how they show an interesting difference in how the Democratic party is represented across state lines.
