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...

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 ...
