Feds to resume leasing for fracking in California 29.8.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
San Francisco • The U.S. Bureau of Land Management will resume issuing oil and gas leases next year for federal lands in California after a new study found limited environmental impacts from fracking and other enhanced drilling techniques, the agency said Thursday. The move will end a halt that has stood since a federal judge ruled in 2013 that the federal agency failed to follow environmental law in allowing an oil extraction method known as fracking on public land in Monterey County. The study...

Steamboat football gearing up for perennial rival Moffat County in opener 28.8.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Although Moffat County High School’s campus is just 44 miles from Steamboat Springs High School, there’s an aura of mystery surrounding this year’s Bulldogs-Sailors rivalry. A mid-summer firing of former Bulldogs coach Kip Hafey and the late-summer hiring of Keith Gille left Steamboat head coach Lonn Clementson with not much other than a Gille resume to work with while prepping for the Sailors’ Week 1 opponent. Outside some scouting of Moffat County’s Zero Week thrashing at the hands of 3A powerhouse Rifle — a 62-7 loss that was 41-0 in Rifle’s favor after one quarter — the Sailors are left with a “we’ll just have to wait and see” attitude. Clementson knows one thing, though. For a Steamboat program looking to make its way back into the playoff picture, the Sailors can’t afford to overlook any opponent, especially a perennial rival. 2014 Steamboat Springs football schedule Aug. 29: vs. Moffat County, 7 p.m. Sept. 5: vs. Aspen, 7 p.m. Sept. 12: at Battle Mountain, 7 p.m. Sept. 19: at Delta, 7 p.m. Sept. ...

Deal protects land near Book Cliffs, allows other drilling 20.8.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
A long-awaited deal will protect remote southern reaches of the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation from development and, at the same time, will let the tribe and state partner on oil and gas ventures to the north. While the arrangement was spearheaded by pro-drilling members of Utah’s congressional delegation, environmentalists found much to praise because the agreement safeguards parts of the scenic Book Cliffs inside the reservation from industrial development. Ute tribal leaders plan a Frida...

Federal oil and leases in Utah go unsold 20.8.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
A federal oil and gas lease auction Tuesday was a bit of a bust with only two parcels fetching the $2-an-acre minimum bid.

Rain can’t dampen Harris’ sprits upon his return with Broncos 31.7.2014 Steamboat Pilot
The cold rain showers that drenched the Denver Broncos and 9,207 die-hard fans during a stadium practice Wednesday couldn’t dampen Chris Harris Jr.’s spirits. The versatile fourth-year cornerback donned pads for the first time since injuring his left knee in Denver’s playoff win over San Diego on Jan. 12 and was a limited participant the practice at Sports Authority Field. “I wasn’t tentative at all,” Harris said. “I have confidence. They had to slow me down a couple of times, even in the walk-through.” The Broncos took Harris off the PUP list Tuesday upon his return from Pensacola, Florida, where he received medical clearance from Dr. James Andrews, who repaired his partially torn ACL after the Super Bowl. Star receiver Demaryius Thomas also had his first full practice of camp. He participated in the team’s walk-through Monday night after returning from his grandmother’s funeral in Georgia. Like Harris, Thomas was limited to individual work and 7-on-7s drills but turned into a sideline spectator when ...
