New York • Having finalized a $110 million, four-year contract with the New York Mets, Yoenis Cespedes declared: “God willing, I will finish my career with this team.” Mets general manager Sandy Alderson quickly interjected: “God willing, and a no-trade clause, by the way.” The video board on the wall of Citi Field’s news conference room featured a photo of the slugging outfielder and the hashtag: “YOGotHim.” “This is the third time we have acquired Yoenis in the last 17 months, and it appears t...

Water and sewer rates poised to go up soon in Steamboat Springs 8.11.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Water and sewer customers in the city of Steamboat Springs will likely see their rates go up by a few bucks a month next year as the city starts to prepare for millions of dollars worth of infrastructure repairs and upgrades. Commercial customers with larger water meters will see the biggest increases in their monthly bills. The rate increases, which customers haven’t seen now for three years, would then gradually increase through 2019. Under the city’s plan, residential water customers would see their monthly service charge go up by $2.42 a month in January. Wastewater service charges would go up by $1.30 per month next year. Water usage rates would also go up. A full breakdown of the proposed rate changes was mailed out to customers with their November bills. See the rates below this story. A recent study of the city’s rates and future water and wastewater infrastructure needs guided the proposal. The Steamboat Springs City Council approved a first reading of the rate increases last month, but the ...

Orem mayor offers $2,500 reward for 'Phantom Dumper' 2.11.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Like goopy clockwork, every Thursday the “Phantom Dumper” is illegally pouring hard-to-process paper-like waste into Orem’s sewer system — and Mayor Richard “Dick” Brunst has had enough. In a YouTube appeal to the Utah County city’s 92,000 residents, Brunst offered a $2,500 reward for information that will help him and his clog-weary Orem Water Treatment Plant staff flush the culprit out, and bring them to justice. The weekly disposals of the non-toxic, fibrous material have been going on for se...

Utah could see primary runoffs under proposed election change 20.10.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Under Bramble’s framework, the primary election would stay in late June and the runoff elections would be conducted entirely by mail and would conclude in late August. That would create a tight time frame for county clerks, particularly if they are required to conduct a recount or are engaged in a legal challenge over the outcome. It would also come with a price tag. It costs about $2.5 million to run a statewide mail-in election. The cost of county or legislative runoffs would vary depending on... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Baseball: Twins' Brian Dozier is entering historic - and completely unexpected - territory 8.9.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
The Minnesota Twins are so easily dismissed as irrelevant, a franchise with the worst record in baseball in search of both a new general manager and a new direction. And here comes Brian Dozier for a bit of ridiculous relevancy, if you’re willing to bend your mind around some numbers that make no sense at all. Minnesota’s second baseman homered again Tuesday night. That followed Monday’s three-homer game against Kansas City. So what we have here is a September full of possibility — and, quite li...

Kansas City, Mo. • The reigning World Series champions had been rendered an afterthought as the calendar flipped to August, the Kansas City Royals so far out of playoff contention that some were wondering whether they might begin jettisoning their stars and rebuilding.

State issues Twin Enviro&#39;s Milner Landfill compliance advisory 1.9.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Twin Enviro Resources owner Les Liman met with Routt County officials Aug. 30 as they participated in a conference call with inspectors from the Colorado Department of Health and Environment, who have issued a compliance order requiring Liman and his staff to respond to a list of nine “deficiencies” found during a May 12 inspection at Twin Enviro’s Milner Landfill west of Steamboat Springs. The deficiencies were detailed in an Aug. 8 compliance letter to Twin Enviro Chief Financial Officer Marlin Mullett from the Colorado Department of Health and Environment. They ranged from “uncovered” asbestos near the landfill’s confined asbestos handling area to ineffective storm water control practices that allowed soils and likely unfinished organic compost materials to be trapped in snow removal piles to run into a nearby wetland. Liman said the date of the inspection came at a challenging time, when the landfill site was in a period of significant precipitation even as snowmelt was taking place, which compounded ...
