Three Washington state residents killed in I-70 crash near Green River 23.2.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Three people from Washington state died Tuesday night when the pickup truck in which they were riding rolled on Interstate 70 near Green River, the Utah Highway Patrol reported. The pickup was traveling west at about 9:24 p.m., just east of Green River, when it went off the left side of the road.

Community Agriculture Alliance: CAWA to hold water workshop in Steamboat Springs 13.1.2017 Steamboat Pilot
By 2050, Colorado’s population will almost double to 10 million, bringing with it a water shortage of more than 500,000 acre feet per year. Municipalities will look to agricultural water as a source of supply. Much of the Colorado Water Plan directly and indirectly discusses agriculture, and the Colorado Ag Water Alliance is hosting a series of meetings around the state to give agricultural producers the opportunity to take an active role in the implementation of the Water Plan. CAWA is comprised of leaders across the state representing major industries of production agriculture. Their goal is to preserve Colorado’s irrigated agriculture through education and constructive dialogue. One meeting will be held for producers in the Yampa, White and Green River basins on March 22 in Steamboat Springs at the Steamboat Springs Community Center. The workshop will include discussions on the Colorado Water Plan, alternative transfer methods to “buy and dry,” how farmers can participate in such programs, new ...

Yellowstone's Mammoth Dining Room honored 12.1.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Many travelers have favorite places where they go back again and again when they are on the road. In Utah, for example, I always have to stop at Ray’s Tavern in Green River for a burger any time I’m near there. I love going to Maddox in Perry, the Little Wonder in Richfield, or the Kan Run in Beaver. I never consider a trip to Yellowstone complete without having dinner or lunch at the historic Mammoth Dining Room. Some Yellowstone lovers like Old Faithful or the great Lake Hotel. Those are good....

Prodded by a federal judge, Bureau of Land Management approves stalled drilling permits on Utah's West Tavaputs 7.1.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Spurred by a federal judge, the Bureau of Land Management has issued permits allowing drilling on Utah’s West Tavaputs Plateau — after a Houston energy firm complained the agency’s insistence on additional environmental analysis violated federal law and would cost the company $46 million. U.S. District Court Judge David Nuffer last week granted an emergency injunction sought by EnerVest, Ltd., which now plans to resume drilling in the 20,000-acre project area that is near both cherished whitewat...

BLM pulls leases in Utah's Nine Mile from auction 10.12.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Federal land managers changed course on two oil and gas leases they had approved in Utah’s Nine Mile Canyon, the Green River tributary cutting across the energy-rich West Tavaputz Plateau and renowned for conspicuous rock art left by ancient Native Americans. The Bureau of Land Management was set to sell the leases, covering 1,550 acres, Tuesday along with 26 others at its quarterly auction for drilling rights on public lands managed by the Price and Vernal field offices. Instead, the agency wi... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Letter: Kill the zombie Lake Powell pipeline 6.12.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Some years ago when Rep. Mike Noel introduced the idea of the Lake Powell pipeline to Kane County residents, he assured them that it would be paid for by a water deal with Blue Castle Holdings, a company that wanted to build a nuclear power plant on the Green River. Noel had crafted a contract with Blue Castle to lease river water owned by Kane County in exchange for large amounts of money. It now appears that this deal has fallen through. Blue Castle’s first payment of $100,000 to Kane County W...

Oil leases in Utah's scenic Nine Mile Canyon will be up for bid in BLM's first online auction 1.12.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
The Bureau of Land Management’s latest offerings for oil and gas leases include parcels in Nine Mile Canyon, spurring protests from several groups that say inviting yet more development there conflicts with proper stewardship of the ancient rock art that abounds along the canyon walls. The federal agency was also lambasted from the opposite direction by state officials who say the BLM is not offering enough parcels for lease in defiance of its multiple-use mission and its own area management p...

Nuke proponents seeking new deal with two Utah water districts 21.11.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
One selling point for the proposed Green River nuclear power plant has been the project’s promise to inject a hearty revenue stream into two cash-strapped southern Utah water districts and help defray costs associated with another grand proposal, the Lake Powell Pipeline. Yet two months after “pre-operational” payments were due to the San Juan and Kane county water conservancy districts, Blue Castle Holdings has yet to hand over the money and now is renegotiating its financial obligations, which...

Utah counties seeking to give money to restore busted Colorado swinging bridge 15.11.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Two years ago, a wayward ranch hand drove a tractor onto the historic suspension bridge crossing the Green River at Browns Park. His journey to the other side was cut short when the overweight vehicle punched through the wooden decking. No one has driven across the 62-year-old structure since, disrupting mobility in this remote northwest corner of Colorado and cutting it off from the Uinta Basin in Utah. Colorado officials have developed a $1.5 million fix for the Browns Park Swinging Bridge, an... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

That’s a question swirling around recent sales of state trust lands in scenic spots to a business entity launched by Utah air-ambulance entrepreneur Joe Hunt.

Fishing in Northwest Colorado is great fall fun 3.11.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Big game hunting usually grabs the headlines in Northwest Colorado this time of year, however fall fishing is also fantastic. “Fishing in the fall tends to be overlooked, but it can be one of the best times to enjoy the great outdoors in Colorado,” wrote Colorado Parks and Wildlife's Northwest Region Senior Aquatic Biologist Lori Martin in an email. “There are 6,000 miles of streams and more than 2,000 lakes and reservoirs to choose from (throughout Colorado),” reports the CPW website. Wet a line in these waters for some fall fishing fun: • The Yampa and Green Rivers hold a large number of species including four endangered fish species — the Razorback Sucker, Humpback Chub, Colorado Pikeminnow, and Bonytail — that must be released alive if caught. • Moffat County Sheriff’s Office and Wyman Living History Museum ponds offer fishing for children, adults with disabilities and seniors. • Freeman Reservoir is a great place to take kids fishing for trout. • Elkhead Reservoir offers fishing for Northern Pike, ...
