Gunnison listing brings greater worries to Northwest Colorado 15.11.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Summit, 1.4 percent Source: Jeff Comstock, Moffat County natural resources director Because the Fish & Wildlife Service decided, through its decision to list the Gunnison sage grouse, that local efforts are not sufficient for preserving the species, Moffat County officials and residents are concerned that they could use the same logic and the greater sage grouse might be listed next. Between 2006 and 2012, Colorado Parks and Wildlife spent more than $33 million on conservation efforts for the greater sage grouse. “It’s more than likely the greater sage grouse will be listed as threatened too,” said Moffat County Commissioner John Kinkaid. But Director of Natural Resources Jeff Comstock said the biology doesn’t allow for that jump. It’s just the precedent set by the Gunnison sage grouse decision that worries him and the rest of Northwest Colorado the most. “We're too early in the phase to know how the fish and wildlife service will react,” Comstock said. “It triggers the what-ifs on greater sage grouse, ...

Gardening with Deb Babcock: Planting seeds — now or in the spring? 23.10.2014 Steamboat Pilot
To seed or not to seed? With apologies to ol' Will Shakespeare, that is the question asked by many high country gardeners each fall. The seed packets we purchase and information about the seeds we collect in the wild tell us about bloom time, germination time and when to sow our seeds. However, in our Steamboat climate, sometimes it makes sense to hedge our bets on spring-planted seeds by sowing part of them in the fall and the rest in the spring. Some local Master Gardeners have had good luck with this method of seeding their garden. I know it works for me. I especially like to do this just before snow covers the ground as it gives the seeds protection from being eaten by birds and mice. Snow also works as a nice mulch that keeps seeds from drying out and then provides the first watering of the spring when it melts. The key to planting seeds is to keep good records. At minimum, list the common and botanic name of your seed variety, when you planted the seed, where you planted the seed (shade, sun, ...
