Outdoor Buddies helping the disabled fulfill their hunting dreams 14.11.2014 Steamboat Pilot
As a hunter of just about all animals for the better part of his life, Roy Bennett is used to the waiting game in the woods with a gun in hand. But at 93 years old, the World War II veteran and Pearl Harbor survivor from Center Point, Texas, was getting understandably anxious on Halloween weekend.

Roy Bennett is an Outdoor Buddies member, a 30-year-old nonprofit based in Colorado that provides therapeutic recreational opportunities to disabled individuals from across the country and also to youths who are interested in recreating. Roy and Ken were paired up with Larry Sanford, Outdoor Buddies' president, and with a relationship that was forged about 20 years ago, were able to hunt on Twentymile Coal Mine's private land southwest of Steamboat ...

Kevin Copeland: Facts 1st on coal 22.10.2014 Steamboat Pilot
A good historian first will research all available information, then cross reference the data in order to concur that factual events indeed took place. This information should not in any way be infused with personal views or beliefs in order to make a political statement that might be construed as actual recorded history. Mr. Bonnifield’s letter to the editor — “Coal mining dying off” in Saturday’s edition of the Steamboat Today — imbued fact, misinformation and his obvious personal political views, without showing an in-depth knowledge of modern mining or the business strategy behind its practice. True, Twentymile, started as a strip mine, owned by Bob Adams in the 1960s, and later by such corporations as Texaco, Amoco, Getty, Cyprus, R.A.G. and, presently, Peabody Energy. The Wadge Coal Seam, mined at Twentymile, naturally dipped deeper (a syncline) beneath the earth (overburden) than could be surfaced mined practically. They then adapted by following the seam underground as a room and pillar ...
