Letter: Is Bishop obtuse or stupid? 25.2.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Did I read that right? Speaking of the Endangered Species Act, Rep. Rob Bishop said, “It has never been used for the rehabilitation of species.

Since its passage in 1978, this bill has aimed to protect 2,270 species that are endangered or threatened. According to the Center for Biological Diversity, more than 200 species would h...

Great gray owl is confirmed in Utah for first time in 28 years 19.2.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Bird lovers in Morgan County have been watching a little history lately. The great gray owl has been spotted in the town of Mountain Green, marking the bird’s first confirmed Utah appearance since 1989. Russell Norvell, the avian conservation coordinator for Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, said there was a reported siting in 1999, but not enough documentation to confirm it. Bird watchers first saw a pair of great gray owls Feb. 9 in Morgan County, according to a post on the website Neo Vi... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge auto tour loop closed due to weather 9.2.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Recent rains and snow-melt forced the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge to close its popular Auto Tour Loop route on Wednesday. Refuge Manager Bob Barrett said the precipitation, along with the effects of warmer temperatures, had rendered the dirt road temporarily unsafe for drivers. Staff will monitor conditions and re-open the road when it is deemed once more passable. The 36-mile, round trip route usually is open dawn to dusk, winding through varied birdwatching terrain including pristine wetl... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Swallow will face a jury this week, and he may not be only one on trial 5.2.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Four days after John Swallow was sworn in as Utah’s new attorney general in January 2013, his political house began to crumble. The crack in the foundation came after a bombshell federal court hearing for an indicted St. George businessman, who said Swallow had been party to an attempted bribe of a powerful U.S. senator. The earth began to shake and the allegations spread: Pay-to-play inside the Utah attorney general’s office; money and favors buying legal cover and protection from the state’s t...

Letter: Amodei doesn't get the love for public lands 1.2.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Utahns and other citizens who appreciate our U.S. public lands should be disappointed in Nevada Rep. Mark Amodei’s disrespectful characterization of former U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe and his sarcastic response to an op-ed column we recently authored together (“For the sage grouse, much is at stake ...,” Jan. 7). Amodei took the spirit of our column — a celebration of an unprecedented, collaborative approach to sage grouse management in the West and a call for conservation ...

Op-ed: Departing Fish and Wildlife director spins sage grouse fiction 19.1.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
As the member of Congress who represents the portion of Nevada that contains one of the highest acreage percentages of sage hen habitat anywhere in the West, I was amazed by the literary skills displayed in your recent guest op-ed by outgoing Fish and Wildlife Director Dan Ashe. It’s not news to anyone, especially in the intermountain West, that our greatest challenge in managing millions of acres of land owned by the Department of Interior is finding the right balance between multiple use and c...
