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 ...

Election Guide 2014: Tight race develops for Colorado governor 14.10.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Website: www.bobbeauprez.com Beauprez grew up on a dairy farm outside Boulder and earned a degree in physical education from the University of Colorado. He continued dairy farming with a brother. After the family farm was sold for a golf course development, he purchased an interest in a small local bank that grew into Heritage Bank. He became chairman of the Colorado Republic Party in 1999 and was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2002, serving until January 2007. He ran unsuccessfully for governor of Colorado in 2006. Key issues ■ Jobs and the economy: Beauprez thinks over-regulation in Colorado is holding back job creators.
