About Uranium Drive-In:

From UraniumDriveIn.com

"The promise of jobs from a proposed uranium mill has an economically devastated mining community in Colorado hopeful for the first time in decades. When environmentalists step in to stop the mill, pro-mill advocates are enraged. A debate ensues, pitting jobs against health and the environment. 

Without judgment, both sides of the issue are brought to life in heart-wrenching detail as the film follows conflicting visions for the future. The film offers no easy answers but aims instead to capture personal stories and paint a portrait of the lives behind this nuanced and complex issue."
Behind Uranium Drive-In:

Uranium Drive-In is a movie about uranium, only... it really isn't about uranium at all. It is about the people whose lives have been affected by uranium, both good and bad. It is a movie about passion, about people who are passionate about saving the environment but it is also about people like me.

It's about what happens to a mining town 30 years after the last boom ended.

Uranium Drive-in is a very special movie to me and my area, and it's not just because I was involved with the project. Being granted the opportunity to speak about my love of my area and the people in it was a huge honor, but knowing that our story will be shared with people all over the country and even around the world is phenomenal.

To find out more about the movie, visit the Uranium Drive-In website.

Boshemia and Uranium Drive-in:

My involvement in the movie began a few years ago when Casey Nay called me and said they had read on of my Squidoo lenses about my hometown and they wondered if I would like to do an interview. That article, Hippies, Uranium and Prairie Dogs... Oh My - My Hometown Nucla, Colorado was a humorous look at the my home town roots, and the somewhat odd history of the town that I love.

I warned them early on that I wasn't exactly the average citizen of our rather conservative area, and in no way could I represent the people here. What I could do was tell them what it is like to live in a town that you dearly love, and slowly watching it die. The promise of the mill was our life support here for a very long time... but our happy ending has not yet arrived.

After Uranium Drive-In:

Now that Energy Fuels has purchased the White Mesa Mill in Blanding, UT any plans for the Pinion Ridge Mill that was to be built in our area have been placed on hold indefinitely, and no other jobs have followed. 1200 people are still waiting for the day that the jobs will return to our area...

Uranium Drive-In opens up a real dialogue about the future of small mining communities all across this great country. What happens when the mining stops and the jobs leave?

That my friends is a question still left unanswered.

Beyond Uranium Drive-In:

After the movie, a small group of people from Nucla/Naturita and Telluride came together to discuss ideas for reviving our economy.

A few of the ideas presented so far:

Call center: A small call center, handling reservations for local resorts.

Outdoor tourism: Hiking, biking, jeep tours, low level rapids.

Mining tourism: A uranium museum, mine tours (non-radioactive of course) and even gold panning expeditions.

Agriculture: Wineries, organic farming, free range poultry and beef, (possible distribution agreements with Telluride, Moab and Gateway?

Festivals: We have discussed the possibility of a festival here, music, food, merchandising vendors, camping, and even a zombie prom.

Walking tourism: Create a small shopping district that offers small cafes, boutiques, free internet, and in between the businesses space for weekend vendors  and performers to set up.

How do we make those things happen?

With a little help from our friends... if you would like to offer ideas, services, or even financial assistance to make our stone soup revival possible, join our Facebook Group
