Spoke Talk: Hayden Cog Run a great event 26.5.2016 Steamboat Pilot
A late Friday afternoon text “conversation” went something like this: Got the new wheels installed on my bike. Cool. Yep, the COG out in Hayden. I’ll sign up! We’re gonna ride coal mine road to it. Uh, wait, what? Reluctance aside, we pedal Routt County Road 27, where the surrounding hills are sprouted green, a nice backdrop for a ride as the birds are out in full force: meadowlarks singing, mountain blue birds swooping, a red tailed hawk staring and in the sky, a heron floating. By mid-morning, the three of us roll up to registration. No waiting is necessary as friendly volunteers get us prepped. I confidently mention we’re doing the 25-plus-mile “gravel grinder.” I quickly discover other riders have paper plate numbers on their mountain bikes. Why are we the only ones on road bikes? And this is a timed event … huh? I suspect we’ve done something remarkably stupid or foolhardy, at best. In less than a mile, we make a right turn on CR 76 and up the gravel-covered road. Gravel becomes dirt, and foolhardy ...

Books: From suffragettes to strikers, author tells lesser-known tales of Utah history 21.5.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Most Utah history books concentrate on Mormon stories, rooted in the role of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in settling the state. But there are other stories about Utah involving different religions, ethnic groups, business leaders, athletes and artists. Eileen Hallet Stone examines many of those “other” Beehive State characters in her latest book, “Historic Tales of Utah,” published by American Chronicles. The 208-page book is filled with stories about the outlaws, mining town...

Coal miners' lament 20.5.2016 Salt Lake Tribune

As far as miner Jason Nichols of Price sees it, though, the discussion serves little purpose other than shutting down an industry that, for decades, has provided low-cost power and kept rural Utahns employed. “Everyone is trying to pick the pockets of coal miner...

Managers from four of Utah’s largest water districts are asking lawmakers to fund a fifth of the estimated $18 billion in repairs they believe will be necessary by the year 2060.

Living history: Silver in those hills creates a boom in the Utah desert 7.5.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
First of two parts On Sept. 24, 1875, two prospectors left work at their galena mine in the San Francisco Mountain Mining District of Utah’s Beaver County and stopped by a huge boulder outcrop that offered them shady respite.
