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 ...

Nathan Fey: Balance energy development and river health 24.6.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Cutting through the steep canyons and arid sage lands of northwestern Colorado and northeastern Utah, the Yampa and Green rivers are the region’s lifeblood. Their relentless forces are responsible for carving out the region’s stratified geology and for exposing the fossils that give Dinosaur National Monument its name. Their calm waters lure anglers and their rapids attract thousands — almost 10,000 — kayakers, rafters and adventure seekers each year . I have paddled both these rivers. They are treasures, and I know there is nothing more important to the vitality of this arid region. Protecting them is tantamount to protecting its prosperity. In recent years, however, northwestern Colorado and northeastern Utah also increasingly have become targets for oil and gas development. At one point, there was actually a proposal to drill for oil and gas on land directly adjacent to the monument’s visitor center. Oil and gas development are important economic drivers, but there is a right way and a wrong to go ...

Northwest Colorado citizens groups track oil, gas ballot initiatives 20.6.2014 Steamboat Pilot
The process of evaluating and approving oil well drilling permits in Routt County has settled, this year, into a phase of predictability with the Routt County commissioners expressing confidence that a lengthy set of local conditions of approval in place to ensure local land use values are protected. The commissioners received only brief public comment in favor of the new Southwestern Energy well June 10 before voting unanimously to approve it. But the relatively routine state of oil well permit hearings here this year doesn’t mean a new round of debate at the state level won’t pull Northwest Colorado back into a broader discussion. Two ballot initiatives that would seek a pair of constitutional amendments in the November election have been cleared for signature gathering by the Colorado Supreme Court. One, Initiative 88, dramatically would increase the distance wells must be set back from homes, from the current 500 feet to 2,000 feet. And the second, Initiative 92, would give ultimate authority over ...

Utah ‘high risk’ oil wells among those left uninspected 15.6.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
A majority of the oil and gas wells drilled on federal land in Utah during recent boom years have not been inspected, according to data obtained by The Associated Press. Of even more concern: Two-thirds of the wells the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) identified as high priority — because their locations pose greater risks — have not been examined. The Utah data cover the 2,432 oil and gas wells drilled between 2009 and 2012 on Utah lands administered by the U.S. Forest Service, the BLM and th...
