Another Oklahoma-based oil and gas company is on its way to being gone. In a move one analyst expects to see more of, Mid-Con Energy Partners announced Monday it is merging with Contango Oil & Gas. The Fort Worth, Texas-based Contango will assume ownership of Mid-Con’s assets as part of an all-stock deal valued at $400 million that’s expected to close by early next year. Contango officials said the deal benefits their company because it increases its exposure to proved-developed oil reserves at an attractive price, reduces its costs and provides Mid-Con’s investors with greater liquidity, financial stability and future growth opportunities. The announcement comes about 60 days after Mid-Con issued “going concern” language in a quarterly fil.

Bill Press. In case you missed it, history was made in last week’s second and final presidential debate. On several levels. For the first time ever, because Trump behaved so badly in the first debate, the candidates’ mikes were muted for the first two minutes on every issue; for the first time ever, climate change was featured as a major debate point; and, for the first time ever, a major party candidate pledged — not only to tax and end subsidies to one of America’s leading industries, but to preside over its demise: perhaps the boldest promise made by any presidential candidate ever. Ironically, the significance of that final historic moment, which came late in the debate, was missed by almost everybody — except. . Asked about his plan to c.

Ghost tale from the camp fire. by Julie Carter. Phantom horse, phantom rider – the stuff ghost stories are made of. In J. Frank Dobie’s “. Coronado's Children.,” a. tale from cow camp relates the story of a cowboy murdered along the Loma Escondida road. Carrying gold coins in his saddle bags to buy a herd of cattle, he rode out on his cream-colored dun stallion with the black stripe down his back --what the Mexicans called a bayo coyote. After his second night out, he rose, saddled the lineback dun and went to receive the herd he was purchasing. A couple hours later, the sheriff came along on his way to inspect the herd for stray brands. He found both the cowboy and his horse dead. The saddle bags were gone. The sheriff gathered a posse, follow.

Influences. Coyote. Multiple Definitions. By Stephen L. Wilmeth. The uproar over the president’s use of the term, coyote, during the final debate is symptomatic of the times. The orchestration of this symphonic work of hate seems to be endless. It became a point of puzzlement during the last fellow’s terms when the basic mode of governance was condemnation of his predecessor. Few of us out here in the hinterlands could fathom that casting dispersions could be the central theme of any administration. But, it was, and, it has been elevated, … into a polarizing artform. Influences. My paternal grandfather probably had more impact on my political leanings than any other single influence. He was a strict conservative and proudly filled the number two.

Have you ever wondered about all these holidays that shouldn’t be, like National Situational Awareness Day, National Ball Point Pen Day or National Cupcake Day? When I heard about National Bubble Wrap Day, National Play-Doh Day and National Talk Like A Pirate Day I just had to find out what a person has to do to get a day. It turns out that a person like me can’t get a National Lee Pitts Day, that would have to be done by an act of Congress and I haven’t paid off any politicians so I doubt that’s going to happen. But an organization or a business can register a day, week or month with The National Day Calendar. I bet you’re wondering how much it costs to have a National No-Beard Day, a National Do A Grouch A Favor Day or National Make Up Yo.

It was a bad day at Black Rock that fateful Halloween. It all began the week before, the call had seemed routine. “I’ve got a mare needs checkin’, Doc, I b’lieve the sweetheart’s bred.”“I’ll swing by there this afternoon,” Good Doctor Kelly said. The mare was mincing round the stall as Kelly donned the sleeve. “This should only take a second,” his assessment was naive. “She’s just a little nervous, Doc, but…I guess I would be too. If you were pointin’ that at me I’d kick you to Timbucktu!”Which is precisely what she did. So fast it was a blur. The next day poor ol’ Kelly wore a cast from hip to spur. With two days of the heal up, his left leg plasterized,. He volunteered to take a call. I know it wasn’t wise. But you know men, like him I m.

Dave Daley - California Rancher. It is almost midnight. We have been pushing hard for 18-20 hours every day since the Bear Fire tore through our mountain cattle range on September 8th, and there is so much swirling in my head I can’t sleep anyway. The fire destroyed our cattle range, our cattle, and even worse our family legacy. Someone asked my daughter if I had lost our family home. She told them “No, that would be replaceable. This is not!” I would gladly sleep in my truck for the rest of my life to have our mountains back. I am enveloped by overwhelming sadness and grief, and then anger. I’m angry at everyone, and no one. Grieving for things lost that will never be the same. I wake myself weeping almost soundlessly. And, it is hard to st.

In June of 2002, nearly half a million acres burned in the Arizona high country. At the time, the Rodeo-Chediski Fire was the largest wildfire in the state’s history. There was too much fuel in the forest, a buildup that began more than a century ago. Enough people saw the record-breaking fire and agreed that something needed to be done to prevent the next big fire. But correcting mistakes of the past is often tougher than it sounds. Almost two decades later, those involved in responding to the Rodeo-Chediski say they’re still learning what it will take to get ahead of wildfires, and the effects they have on headwater forests. “I think the first thing to recognize is that the southwest and California are built to burn,” said fire historian

Carlos Zapata has a message for any government official who shows up at his Tehama County restaurant and tries to enforce California’s pandemic shutdown orders. “I’ve made it very clear that if they come to shut us down, I’m going to call 100,000 people that’ll be there with guns, and what happens happens, you know?” Zapata said Tuesday. “I’m hoping that they’re not stupid enough to want that kind of a fight over a restaurant being open, but if they want it, we’ll definitely give it to them.” It’s not the first time the Red Bluff restaurant owner and U.S. Marine combat veteran has made those kinds of threats. A few weeks ago, he told the Shasta County Board of Supervisors to expect trouble if they enforce Gov. Gavin Newsom’s COVID-19 restri.

Jerry Jeff Walker was singing in New Orleans coffeehouses and on street corners in 1965, when he was thrown in jail for public intoxication. It wasn’t the first time he had been drunk, and it certainly wouldn’t be the last, but as he sobered up, he heard his cellmate tell him a story that would change his life. He was an old man with years of sorrow behind him, a homeless street performer who had once been a dancer “at minstrel shows and county fairs throughout the South.” Like Mr. Walker, he didn’t go by his real name. He said he was called “Bojangles,” after Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, a renowned vaudeville and film dancer who died in 1949. Mr. Walker used the encounter as the basis for his song “Mr. Bojangles” Mr. Walker recorded the song.

One by one they are starting to fall. The long predicted consolidation wave in U.S. shale players, particularly those with assets in the Permian stacked play, is in high gear. Just in the last month or so, Chevron, (NYSE:CVX) has taken out Noble Energy, (NYSE:NBL); Devon (NYSE:DVN) swallowed WPX Energy, (NYSE: WPX); ConocoPhillips, (NYSE: COP) snapped up Concho Resources, (NYSE: CXO), and just last night, Pioneer Exploration, (NYSE: PXD), announced it would merge with Parsley Energy, (NYSE:PE). Earlier this year in an OilPrice article, I wrote a detailed thesis for the future of shale that forecast the current wave of consolidation taking place. One key tenet that I postulated would come into play was “Economy of scale,” meaning that larger.

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Time is running out before Election Day as New Mexico election regulators push the political support group Cowboys for Trump to disclose its financial backers. The horseback-riding, New Mexico-based support group for President Donald Trump on Wednesday urged a U.S. District Court not to dismiss its lawsuit challenging state financial disclosure requirements. A trial could stretch into late 2021. The group was co-founded by Otero County Commissioner Couy Griffin to support Trump on a variety of conservative themes, including gun rights, border security and opposition to abortion. The group says less-onerous federal campaign finance laws override recent New Mexico legislation aimed a greater financial transparency for in.

A new bill from Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) and other lawmakers would bar the Trump administration from seeking to overturn the ruling ousting William Perry Pendley from his role as the de facto director of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The legislation comes as the Department of the Interior has expressed interest in appealing the decision from U.S. District Court Judge Brian Morris that determined Pendley had "served unlawfully ... for 424 days" and tossed major land management plans he oversaw in Montana. If the ruling stands, it could have major environmental consequences, giving groups a precedent for fighting other plans that open large swaths of public lands to fossil fuel development. “William Perry Pendley is not an appropriate.

In my , I told you about the fiasco concerning my surgery and that the EKG showed I'd had a heart attack. I then took the EKG to my primary care doc. He said I had a type of electrical blockage that would always show up as a heart attack if not read correctly. He said the electrical signal starts at the top of the heart, kicks off the two top chambers, then goes to the lower chambers to fire them off. In my case, the electrical charge goes to the first two chambers, then short circuits out the left side of my heart, goes clear around the top of the heart and then down to the bottom chambers where it enters and fires them off. Just like every thing else in my life, I just can't seem to do things the way most people do them. He wasn't concern.

Monica Nickelsburg. ... Business is also booming, in part, because the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) opened up new sales channels for Iowa farmers who use the slaughterhouse. Iowa joined a federal program earlier this year allowing farmers and ranchers to sell animals slaughtered under the supervision of state inspectors across state lines, bypassing a logjam created by the limited number of USDA-inspected slaughterhouses. The program allows Story City’s customers who farm in western Iowa to sell their meat at the bustling Omaha farmers’ market just a few miles across the border, an example of the type of regionalized food economy that the program aims to promote. Iowa is one of eight states admitted to the. and one of. . Both programs.
