Monday on TV: 'The Flash' asks 'Supergirl' to help fight off alien invasion 28.11.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
The four-part superhero crossover event begins tonight on The CW — but the story doesn’t really get going until Tuesday. Tonight’s episode of “Supergirl” (7 p.m., CW/Ch. 30) is, for the most part, just your basic episode. At Thanksgiving, Alex decides to come out to her mother, and CADMUS unleashes a virus that instantly kills any alien. But toward the end of the episode, Barry Allen/The Flash and Cisco Ramon show up and ask Supergirl/Kara Danvers to come back to their Earth (which is in a diffe... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Steamboat briefs: Sherpa documentary to screen at library Monday 26.11.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Bud Werner Memorial Library presents a free screening of “Sherpa: Trouble on Everest,” a documentary film by Jennifer Peedom at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 28 in Library Hall. The film captures a detailed picture of the people who are often left on the cutting room floor in depictions of voyages to the top of Earth’s highest mountain. Filmmakers set out to make a film of the 2014 Everest climbing season from the Sherpas’ point of view. Instead, they captured a tragedy that would change Everest forever. At 6:45 a.m. April 18, 2014, a 14-million-ton block of ice crashed down onto the climbing route through the Khumbu Icefall, killing 16 Sherpas. It was the worst tragedy in the history of Everest. The disaster provoked a drastic reappraisal about the role of the Sherpas in the Everest industry. “Sherpa” tells the story of how, in the face of fierce opposition, the Sherpas united in grief and anger to reclaim the mountain they call Chomolungma.

A deal has been reached to preserve the historic South Eden Ranch on Bear Lake’s east shore, which the Nebeker family promises to keep in production and undeveloped while adjacent lakefront property is subdivided and developed into residences. The $800,000 deal targets a 50-acre slice of the 620-acre property, but it will ensure an indefinite reprieve from intensifying development pressure while further deals are reached to protect the entire property, according to ranch manager Krista Klein.

Op-ed: SITLA's Comb Ridge sale leaves Utah schoolchildren with less than they had 15.11.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
On Oct. 19, Utah liquidated an irreplaceable cultural and anthropological site when it sold Comb Ridge to the highest bidder. The sale of “PS 8581” was not just a routine state land transfer. Americans lost irreplaceable history. Tuvwup Oaov, Mother Earth’s Backbone, is worth far more as public land than the cash it brought into state coffers. On Comb Ridge, near Bluff, ravens wheel and plummet over sandstone fins stretching for 80 miles. Artifacts lie scattered amidst scrubby juniper and prick...

Jay Gallagher: Where we grow is as important as how we grow 26.10.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Integrating land use and water planning can benefit all Coloradans — first, by promoting more efficient housing and landscape design, communities can still grow but reduce their per-capita water consumption and thereby defer expensive expansions of municipal water infrastructure, and secondly, by implementing land-use policies that protect water quality, communities can protect or even improve the health of their watersheds. Healthy rivers and streams provide high-quality municipal water supplies and support fishing and whitewater sports that are of growing importance to the economies of Colorado’s smaller communities. The city of Steamboat Springs and several adjacent water districts rely on shallow horizontal wells — known as infiltration galleries — constructed in the saturated gravels and sands of the Yampa River in the South Valley upstream of the city limits. These wells provide a reliable source of municipal water that is generally of higher quality than surface waters because the wetlands and ...
