Less travel, more experience could spell big payoff for Soroco football 28.8.2015 Steamboat Pilot
When Soroco High School quarterback Isaac Jonas broke his ankle in a 62-0 loss to Dayspring Christian Academy last September, it was the first major injury of his life. Initially, it was difficult for him to accept missing the rest of the 8-man football season, but he did his best to make what he could of the situation. “I was in my room for most of the time … but when I got back up, I did the most I could trying to catch up on school and still support the team,” Jonas said. “It’s sore, obviously, but I think I’ll be all right. I don’t really think about it too much when I’m playing.” Jonas, now a junior, is back on the practice field and was even named one of four captains for the Rams this season. Soroco, coming off a 5-3 season in which it just missed the playoffs, will have its third coach in three years with former assistant Dick Dudas taking charge. Dudas, an Ohio native who moved to Routt County in 2009, takes over for Josef Keller, who was a last-minute hire after David Bruner stepped down ...

Southwestern Energy's plans for second well at Dill Gulch include water pipeline from the Yampa River 12.8.2015 Steamboat Pilot
When Southwestern Energy drills the second oil well on its Dill Gulch pad 3.25 miles south of Hayden it will use a temporary surface pipeline to shuttle approximately 8.4 million gallons of water from the town of Hayden, either directly from the Yampa River or the new water tower near Yampa Valley Regional Airport. Routt County Commissioners unanimously approved the second bore at Dill Gulch, which is in addition to the original vertical bore. The new well will be hydraulically fracked and will be a horizontal bore (initially vertical to a depth of 9,600 feet before turning to the west), according to Southwestern regulatory analyst Cheryl Rowell. The vote came a day after the Colorado Water Trust announced that Southwestern was collaborating with the trust, the city of Steamboat Springs and the Upper Yampa Water Conservancy to boost late summer flows in the Yampa between Stagecoach Reservoir and Lake Catamount. The Lake Catamount Metropolitan District has agreed to pass the extra 12 cubic feet per ...

Northwest Colorado sees slow-down in oil, gas play 7.8.2015 Steamboat Pilot
Between low oil and natural gas prices and an onslaught of new regulations for federal lands and minerals, the future of oil and gas development in Northwest Colorado is hanging in a precarious balance. In the last year, oil prices have dropped by more than half — from more than $100 a barrel to about $45 — and natural gas prices by about 30 percent to below $3, according to John Harpole, president of Mercator Energy, LLC, a consulting and multi-service firm for the natural gas industry based in Littleton. “As a result, we’ve lost over 110,000 oil and gas jobs in the U.S.,” Harpole said, who attributes the price drop to saturation of the market by Saudi Arabia. In Northwest Colorado, the slump has taken a toll on new drilling, indicated by a drop in the number of drilling rigs operating in the region. “In 2008, we had 102 rigs running in western Colorado,” Harpole said. “Today, we have seven.” Natural gas is the primary resource base in Northwest Colorado, with Garfield County leading production in the ...
