France's political mainstream urges voters to back Macron 25.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Paris • France’s established parties are rallying around the man who helped shut them out of the presidential runoff, maverick centrist Emmanuel Macron — an alliance of convenience aimed at keeping far-right Marine Le Pen out of the Elysee Palace. Support for Macron also poured in Monday from the seat of the European Union, as well as German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Jewish and Muslim groups troubled by Le Pen’s nationalist vision. European stock markets surged, and France’s main index hit it...

Water restrictions to be announced soon in Steamboat Springs 25.4.2017 Steamboat Pilot
Steamboat Springs residents won’t be able to water their lawns as often as usual this summer due to a drier-than-normal spring. Public Works Director Jon Snyder said the water restrictions, which will limit lawn watering to three days a week starting in May, will be announced as soon as this week. The restrictions are coming mostly because the city is anticipating an earlier-than-normal water runoff in the wake of the dry spring. The city and surrounding mountains saw historically low snowfall amounts in March. Water content in the snow on Buffalo Pass, which provides the city's drinking water, was hovering around 80 percent of average on Monday. “The threshold (for adopting water restrictions) is 80 percent of average,” Snyder said. He added it was hard this year for water suppliers to make the call for water restrictions because the water content was hovering so close to that threshold. But the likelihood of early runoff this year spurred the call for restrictions. City residents avoided water ...

French stocks soar as Macron tops poll 24.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
London • As relief rallies go, this may be as good as they come. European markets have jumped higher, with France’s main index hitting its highest level since early 2008, amid relief over the results of the first round of the French presidential election. Though Marie Le Pen of the far-right National Front came second with 21.5 percent of the vote and will contest the runoff on May 7, the favorite to be the country’s next president is the centrist Emmanuel Macron, who came top with around 24 per...

France's next leader: centrist Macron vs. far-right Le Pen 24.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Centrist Emmanuel Macron and far-right populist Marine Le Pen advanced Sunday to a runoff in France’s presidential election, remaking the country’s political system and setting up a showdown over its participation in the European Union. French politicians on the left and right immediately urged voters to block Le Pen’s path to power in the May 7 runoff, saying her virulently nationalist anti-EU and anti-immigration politics would spell disaster for France. The selection of Le Pen and Macron pres... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Yampa River in Steamboat Springs likely to have sub-par summer flows 14.4.2017 Steamboat Pilot
Flows on the Yampa River this week more closely resembled conditions typical of mid-July than mid-April, and federal scientists who keep an eye on the entire Colorado River Basin are now predicting that flows in the river, which runs through the heart of downtown Steamboat Springs, will trend below average through mid-summer. “The headwaters of the Colorado River main stem and the San Juan Basin are currently forecast to receive near average runoff volumes, while the Yampa and White river basins now have forecasts for below average April-July runoff volumes,” hydrologists at the Colorado Basin River Forecast in Salt Lake City predict. The Yampa was flowing at 309 cubic feet per second (cfs) at the Fifth Street Bridge in downtown Steamboat Springs at midday on April 13. That’s below the median for the date of 440 cfs. But this isn’t likely to be a replay of 2012 when the river peaked unusually early for the season at 1,570 cfs on April 27. There is still 38 inches of snow on the West Summit of Rabbit ...

Utah taxpayers to rescue Duchesne subdivision from septic nightmare 13.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Utah taxpayers and the city of Roosevelt will help a Duchesne County subdivision that has festered in its own sewage for the past few years thanks to poor planning and engineering tests some say were rigged. The Utah Community Impact Board (CIB) has approved $2.5 million in loans and grants to Roosevelt to extend a sewer line into the Stonegate subdivision, replacing failed septic systems that have left homes mired in effluent. The Utah Department of Environmental Quality will cover much of the ... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Baseball: With Ortiz gone, fewer primary DHs left in AL 30.3.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Big Papi was a big hitter, and that was really his only duty for most of his 20 major league seasons. So when David Ortiz retired last year after more than 2,000 games as a designated hitter, baseball lost one of the few remaining players who rarely played the field. Going into the 45th season since the designated hitter was approved for the American League, more managers now appear willing to spread around the DH starts instead of putting the same player in that slot just about every day. There...

Steamboat Springs hotel owner raises concerns about new hotel&#39;s potential to increase flood risk 29.3.2017 Steamboat Pilot
A Steamboat Springs hotel owner is reaching out to city officials to make sure a new hotel being planned upstream from his property doesn’t literally sink his business. Holiday Inn owner Scott Marr last week wrote a letter to city planners expressing some concern about how the construction of an 84-room Homewood Suites on wetlands near his property might send more runoff water from Walton Creek down to his existing hotel. A city official and the developers of the new hotel told Steamboat Today on Tuesday that drainage and hydrology studies for the new development show it will have a “negligible impact” on the existing runoff and drainage situations in the area. Applicant Larry Owens said the site is designed to send all of the runoff eastward, away from a channel that leads to other downstream properties including the Holiday Inn. Reached Tuesday, Marr reacted favorably to that news about the studies and said he has a meeting scheduled with a city official Wednesday to discuss the situation. Marr was ...
