A new report from the Interior Department’s watchdog reignites questions over the involvement of the agency's top lawyer in withholding public documents. The report could give ammunition to Democrats who have accused Interior Solicitor Daniel Jorjani of perjuring himself before lawmakers. The report from Interior’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) centers around the “awareness review” process at Interior that allowed political appointees to review Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests — something critics say gave Trump appointees undue influence over what records were released. Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) has already accused him of having “lied to the committee and perjured himself” when asked about his role in the process during his May

Campers beware! It's about to be much more important to zip up your tent. The annual tarantula migration around Colorado is set to begin at the end of August as thousands of male tarantulas hit the road in search of a mate. According to an published by Colorado State University, the tarantula migration typically starts in southeastern Colorado at the end of August, lasting through September. It is followed by a southwestern migration that typically peaks in October. Following the mating season, all males typically die within months if the cold weather doesn't kill them first. The fall breeding season involves a few different species of tarantulas found Colorado including aphonopelma echinum (nicknamed the Colorado chocolate brown), aphonope.

...Farmers routinely make changes to their acreage intentions as the calendar advances, substituting in different crops if the weather mucks up their original plans. But leaving the ground bare is new territory for U.S. farmers who typically plant fencerow to fencerow, trying to squeeze profit out of every available acre. The most recent acreage data from the government showed corn and cotton plantings in particular were far below initial expectations, with corn seedings in June dropping the most from March in 37 years. The coronavirus pandemic caused many farmers to give up on their corn crop before it was even in the ground. When calculating their plans for 2020, they had viewed corn as the crop most likely to turn a profit as ongoing ten.

Grand Junction, Colo., officially became the headquarters for the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) on Monday, capping a move that has cost the agency nearly 70 percent of its Washington, D.C.-based employees. An order signed by Interior Secretary David Bernhardt “completes the process of relocating the federal agency headquarters closer to both the land it administers and to its employees,” the BLM said in a release. The move to the new headquarters leaves just 61 of the agency’s 10,000 employees in D.C. as part of a plan to move about 25 employees to the Colorado office while scattering roughly 200 at existing offices across the West. However, most of the BLM’s D.C.-based employees opted not to make the move, as public lands groups argued t.

The Maxwell Foods system includes 150 contract farms; company will shutter operations in a phased approach over time based on growing cycles. After more than 31 years, Maxwell Foods will be permanently closing its hog operations in 2021. A subsidiary of Goldsboro Milling Co., the company cited low prices together with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, in making the current and projected financial losses unsustainable for the company to continue operating. "The prices received by Maxwell Foods for its products make this decision necessary. The company will be shuttering operations in a phased approach over time based on growing cycles. Current grower contracts will be honored. The company expects all operations will end by mid-2021. The

A recent surge in arrests along the Mexico border has been partly driven by soaring numbers of migrants trying to enter the United States again and again, as emergency pandemic measures that rapidly "expel" most detainees have had the unintended consequence of allowing them to try repeat illegal crossings, according to two Department of Homeland Security officials with knowledge of the unpublished statistics.

The Pine Gulch Fire 15 miles north of Grand Junction and 19 miles west of Parachute, Colorado has been very active for the last three days, spreading to the west, southeast, and especially to the north (see map below).

Our beloved son and brother, Matthew David Reitzel, passed away on Tuesday, August 4, 2020 from a fast and overwhelming blood infection that took our strong and powerful Cowboy. He was twenty-nine years old, and full of dreams. Matthew was ambitious, hard-working, and passionate about cattle ranching, nature and the great outdoors, his family, friends and LIFE. Matthew, known to most as “Matt,” was Ranch Foreman and Partner in his family’s ranch, Esperanza Land and Cattle L.L.C. in Cebolla, New Mexico. At a very early age Matthew was taught to ride horseback and work cattle with his three loving uncles, and he discovered that he was genetically coded with the Chacón family love for all things related to ranching. He supported every facet of.

The Camaraderie of Country Women. by Julie Carter. There are many women who inspire me to write about a lifestyle that sets them apart from the majority; one that finds understanding only from those that share the same. When they tell me their stories, I use their experiences along with mine to weave a word tapestry depicting the lives of cowgirls, ranch wives and country women. These are strong, independent females who can ride, rope, cook, shoot and laugh even when it takes a special effort to find something humorous in the moment. They clean up quite tolerably for polite company or a trip to town and often surprise the gentry with their ability to carry on an engaging conversation on just about any topic. We like to think there is a callin.

Cómo estás, Isaias. Of Floods and Men. Double Clutching. By Stephen L. Wilmeth. Kevin and Cathie drove home to Leesburg from the Carolinas in the shared path with Isaias, that unpronounceable politically correct and racially named hurricane. The conversation detailing the experience began with a solemn family announcement, but what it was like being under such a genuine soaker couldn’t be avoided.

Cows are supposedly “dumb” animals and yet I have learned a lot from them, such as…. 1. Don’t shoot the bull. 2. If someone wants to load you up and take you to town put up a big fight. There is danger lurking there. 3. When your offspring become of age and leave home no amount of bawling will bring them back. 4. Piercings, notches, tattoos and brands hurt and make it easier for BIG Brother to identify you. 5. The way to acquire a small fortune in the cattle business is to start with a large one. 6. Don’t allow yourself to be driven by an unruly mob. Especially don’t get stampeded. You could get hurt and it will only result in you going round and round in circles. 7. Hogs have no place on a cow ranch. 8. Stay close to your youngsters at all

...Here we sit 45 years later and not much has changed. Today less than 1.3% of the American population, (and 7% in Canada), is involved in production agriculture. We, who are left with the responsibility of feeding the ever-growing population that now stands at 331 million people. We do it. It is lots of work. We have an enormous amount of scientific, technical, medical, and mechanical research and dedication looking over our shoulder as we break the ground, plant the wheat, brand the calf or drive the truck. Imagine a ‘Nóngmín’ bent over in a rice field a thousand years before Christ came, not much different than a farmer bent over a furrow, feeling the soil today. What is our motive…inspiration? Do we say, “We’re feeding the world”? “I’l.

The East Mountain Cowboy Church is calling the event it hosted Saturday morning near Edgewood a “protest.” Breakaway roping is only one of the events that had more than 100 cowboys and cowgirls saddling up, trying to earn a buckle. Some were competing for the first time in a while. “This is my first rodeo since everything started, so me and my horses are trying to get back on track,” said Taylor White a 17-year-old competing in breakaway roping, and barrel racing. The East Mountain Cowboy Church hosted the rodeo on a sixty-acre lot in Edgewood. The lot was empty until this week when members of the church built the arena. Pastor Curt Miller says the rodeo is a protest to how the state is responding to the pandemic. “We don’t like some of the.

The ramp on my van was becoming unreliable. You never knew if it was going to work properly. So in to the shop it went. Unfortunately, the van is so old they no longer make the parts and I had to purchase a whole new unit (just over $3700). My daughter, Sevon, picked up the van Thursday and then took it back with my newest power wheelchair. Why? Because my newest wheelchair, which I've had for over a year, had never been fitted so it would hook into the lock box. Yes, I know it was stupid to travel around with an unlocked wheelchair, but I hadn't found the time to get it done and...sometimes I just do stupid things for the hell of it. I was prepared, though. I had my previous power chair powered up and ready to go as my backup. Hadn't been

A more than 1,300-foot underground passageway stretching from Arizona to Mexico was recently discovered — with the feds calling it “the most sophisticated tunnel in US history.” The unfinished tunnel — which ran from San Luis, Arizona, to neighboring San Luis Rio Colorado in Mexico — had a ventilation system, water lines, electrical wiring, a rail system and extensive reinforcement, Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Thursday. “This appears to be the most sophisticated tunnel in U.S. history, and certainly the most sophisticated I’ve seen in my career,” said Carl E. Landrum, acting chief patrol agent with the Border Patrol’s Yuma Sector. Feds unearthed the tunnel after finding a sinkhole along the US-Mexico border in mid-July. Border

Four executives from two Mississippi poultry processing plants have been indicted on federal charges tied to one of the largest workplace immigration raids in the U.S. in the past decade. U.S. Attorney Mike Hurst and the acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Matt Albence, announced the indictments as the documents were unsealed Thursday. Their announcement happened a day before the one-year anniversary of the raids in which 680 people were arrested at seven poultry plants in central Mississippi. Hurst and Albence also scolded journalists for reports that focused on the arrests separating children from immigrant parents who were sent to detention centers. “If a parent puts their child in that position where they commit.

Mike Cook. This year’s New Mexico U.S. Senate race pits a Democrat with extensive government service against a Republican who is running for office for the first time. There’s also a Libertarian in the race. ...The three are vying for New Mexico’s Fall Senate seat, so named because former secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior Albert B. Fall was the first person to hold it when the state’s two U.S. Senate seats were created in March 1912, two months after New Mexico achieved statehood. Fall and the state’s other first-ever U.S. senator, Thomas B. Catron, were appointed by the New Mexico Legislature, Most U.S. senators were chosen by state legislatures until after ratification of the 17 th amendment to the U.S. Constitution in April.

Dan McLaughlin. Politically charged prosecutions — even ones that are thoroughly justified — often end badly for the justice system. So it appears with the federal prosecutions of Cliven Bundy and his sons. The government , resulting in a jury acquittal in 2016. Today, of Bundy’s own federal indictment (as well as that of several of his co-defendants) on the grounds that the government had waited until the middle of trial to disclose information that would have helped Bundy’s case, in violation of Brady v. Maryland. The misconduct was so severe and prejudicial to the Bundy clan’s case that the court barred the government from bringing the same charges again. The opinion was written by Jay Bybee, a George W. Bush appointee, but joined by judg.
