Colorado City Contemplates Closing Coal-Fired Plant a Decade Ahead of Schedule

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Denver Post:One of the nation’s last coal-fired power plants in the middle of a city may shut down a decade sooner than planned as Colorado Springs leaders contemplate climate action and urban revitalization along a creek.This is happening as residents of Colorado Springs (pop. 465,000) increasingly raise concerns about sulfur dioxide (SO2) and other pollution. On Thursday, residents pressed state health officials to reject a proposal to declare the 80-year-old Martin Drake Power Plant “in attainment” of federal air quality standards for SO2, a toxic gas that mixes with other pollutants and hangs over the city against mountains, with the potential to cause asthma, heart disease and other lung problems after even brief exposure. Colorado Springs Utilities plant operators this year deployed “scrubbers” to clean emissions, and federal Environmental Protection Agency overseers this week said average monthly SO2 emissions decreased to 31 tons a month, down from 330 tons a month in 2015.But Colorado air quality control commissioners voted 8-1 against re-designating the 80-year-old Martin Drake Plant as a facility in compliance with federal air quality requirements, acknowledging public health concerns and calls for cleaner air.The air concerns coincide with brainstorming by the Colorado Springs council members and developers about using the site of the Drake plant, downtown along Fountain Creek, for green space and a museum celebrating the Olympics. For years, Colorado Springs has served as the home of the U.S. Olympic Committee and a training center for athletes.City council members have directed the municipal utility to analyze possibilities for ramping up the 2035 date for closing the plant to 2025, council president Richard Skorman told The Denver Post. And council members are mulling possibilities for shutting one of the two remaining generators in the plant sooner, by 2023, Skorman said.“Some of us would like to move it just because it is a huge blight on the downtown environment,” he said. “We have the ability to create a great green-way connection down there. … If we could move it out of downtown, we could use that site for urban redevelopment.”More: Colorado Springs still rolls coal in heart of city, but may shut Drake plant by 2025 as residents fume Colorado City Contemplates Closing Coal-Fired Plant a Decade Ahead of Schedulelast_img read more

My favorite Farm Science Review memory

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Joel PenhorwoodMy favorite FSR memory beings with the doldrums of school that start in September.Pretty much one thing kept my attention — that special day when Dad would keep me home and instead of going to school, we would head to Farm Science Review.We got up early (which never seemed to be a problem on this day in particular, though every other was a struggle) and headed to London. We made sure to leave enough time to stop at the same restaurant every year, the now-defunct Amish Kitchen, a Der Dutchman style restaurant where we would have the breakfast buffet. For some reason, it always tasted better than any other breakfast I had.We sat in the same area by the same fireplace and had the same conversation — things we were looking forward to seeing during the day ahead.I always preferred seeing all the exhibits and ending up lugging around about 50 pounds worth of freebies by the time the day was through. Dad liked to for us to venture out to the field demonstrations and to check out the Gwynne Conservation Area. Now that I’m older, those field demos and the Gwynne have grown on me. It’s nice to walk around there, even today, thinking of my time with Dad at the Review.Dad has always spent quite a bit of time with my two older brothers and I. As the youngest though, it wasn’t always the easiest thing to find one-on-one time. Farm Science Review was that special day. It was just Dad and me doing something together.He sat there with me in the Small Farms Center when I was hoping to learn more about raising chickens or trying to get a hobby farm intro. Encouragement wasn’t hard to find.And every few years, Mom would tag along as well to make it an extra special day.Then maybe, (most likely!), we would stop by Der Dutchman on the way home.Thanks Dad for taking off that day of work every year and busting me out of school to spend quality time together. You’ll never know how much it meant to me.Farm Science Review will always be riddled with fond memories for my family. What are yours? As Farm Science Review comes to a close for another year, we encourage you to share your favorite Farm Science Review memories on social media with #FSR18. Maybe you made a new favorite memory this year? Maybe it was your first year coming? Tell us! Do it by the end of the day on Friday and you’ll be entered into a drawing for a YETI cooler, valued at $200.last_img read more

Best Young Farmers/Ranchers-2

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Dan MillerProgressive Farmer Senior EditorEvery whiskey has a good story. Hayes Kelman tells one about Red Eye Whiskey.His award-winning Boot Hill Distillery’s Red Eye is fermented from the corn and wheat grown on Hayes’s Kelman Farms, in Sublette, Kansas. Red Eye — 51% corn, 49% wheat — is “a beautiful, hand-crafted, trail-aged, frontier-style Kansas whiskey,” he says.Fitting, as Boot Hill Distillery sits atop Boot Hill Cemetery, in Dodge City, Kansas. Its stainless fermentation vats, copper stills and tasting room are housed in a 90-year-old brick building once home to the city’s municipal functions — including the jail. The dirt below it was once the final home for the town’s criminal element. Some felons died so suddenly by well-placed bullets that they died with their boots on, it is said. Thus, Boot Hill.It is also said bodies were removed from Boot Hill during the cold winter of 1879, as the town discovered more valuable uses for its prominent vista.MARKETING MIND-SETThis is the story 27-year-old Kelman tells distributors — those critical linchpins who bring alcoholic products to thirsty consumers. Distributors enjoy the story behind the product. “It’s a good story,” they tell Kelman. “We don’t believe it, but it’s a good story.”There is a short phrase that describes Red Eye’s journey from farm to bottle: “soil to sip.”“We take products from our farm to make whiskey. We turn our corn and wheat primarily into bourbon and vodka,” Kelman says. Dodge City patrons will sip Boot Hill’s first bourbons this year, with drinks served over the distillery’s 116-year-old neoclassical Brunswick bar. Kelman has been marketing his Boot Hill line since 2016.PRODUCTION CHALLENGEKelman Farms raises wheat, sorghum and irrigated corn and soybeans across the prominently flat terrain of Haskell County, Kansas. Most of the family farm was leveled for flood irrigation. Today, irrigation is by center pivot. Corn yields are generally in the low 200s.Water is increasingly a management challenge. The Ogallala Aquifer has been declining for decades. Wells on Kelman Farms are pumping at about half their historic levels. The family has even capped some wells for lack of productivity.Kelman came to believe while still in college that the family farm needed vertical integration on production not so heavily dependent on water. “There has to be something more than just growing the grain, taking it the elevator and then repeating the same process all over again the next season,” he thought. “It’s no secret that we all face the same issues: maximizing production, minimizing inputs. We can bury our heads in the sand and pretend that pressing issues aren’t on the horizon.”Dryland production is not a happy alternative in Kansas’ hot and dry summers. Fed cattle offer some opportunity, but Sublette is nearly submerged in large feedlots.“But, we really enjoy drinking whiskey, so the best idea we could come up with would be to start a distillery,” Kelman says. The distillery multiplies the value of the grain fermented many times over.FOLLOW THE ROOTSThe distillery idea has some root in Kelman family history — that a farm can be more than a farm.In 1921, an earlier generation of Kelmans moved 400 miles from Kansas City to Western Kansas, “with hope to farm new land,” Kelman says. “My grandfather was a businessman. He wasn’t afraid to get into another industry if it made sense for the farm,” he adds.Does Boot Hill fit with Kelman Farms — spirits with beans? “We’re at an odd point. Both the farm and the distillery straddle tradition and technology. We know about seed placement and fertilizer rates. Now, we have the ability to dial those down to certain values,” Kelman explains. “We spend hours in the tractor. But, we also spend hours poring over spreadsheets to understand the efficacy of our methods.”The same is true in the distilling world. “People have been distilling alcohol for thousands of years. The principals have not changed, but our processes have evolved with technology. We use a large amount of ‘distiller’s art’ to produce our spirits — smell and taste. We also use technology to precisely measure sugar and alcohol content,” Kelman says.“In both, we focus on an end goal. We are thoughtful and purposeful about our decisions,” he says. Continuing the family-farm business doesn’t mean Kelman must farm more. The same traditional work ethics and business processes that bring order and financial gain to farming translate well to other business ventures. “Ultimately, I want to see this farm continue. It’s that exact reason I’ve expanded it with a distillery.”**Editor’s Note: This is the second of five profiles of our ninth class of DTN/The Progressive Farmer’s America’s Best Young Farmers and Ranchers.

How Ohio State will replace departing NFL draft picks

The Buckeyes celebrate as redshirt junior cornerback Gareon Conley (8) intercepts the ball during the Fiesta Bowl on Dec. 31. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorLast year, Ohio State was tasked with replacing 12 players – including five first-rounders – who were selected in the 2016 NFL draft. Though the Buckeyes won’t have to deal with the large quantity of losses this year, they will once again be forced to identify new starters at seven different positions. Here is how Ohio State will replace its seven 2017 NFL draft picks.Players Lost to NFL: Cornerbacks Marshon Lattimore (New Orleans Saints, first round) and Gareon Conley (Oakland Raiders, first round)Candidate(s) to replace: Denzel Ward, Damon Arnette, Kendall Sheffield, Shaun Wade and Jeffrey OkudahSituation: Ohio State’s recent track record of sending defensive backs to the NFL is unparalleled. Marshon Lattimore and Gareon Conley, who each had four interceptions in 2016, joined Eli Apple, Vonn Bell, Doran Grant and Bradley Roby, whom were all drafted in the last four years. The loss of Lattimore and Conley will hurt, but Ohio State has been in this position before. Last spring, Lattimore had to fight to win his job, and a season later he developed into a first-round draft pick.Junior Denzel Ward will step into a starting role. Cornerbacks coach Kerry Coombs, who believes Ward is due for a breakout season, repeatedly said in the spring  the Macedonia, Ohio, native played as much as Lattimore and Ward last season. Ward had 23 tackles and nine pass breakups in 2016.An extremely skilled group of cornerbacks will battle to start opposite Ward. Redshirt junior Damon Arnette experienced some struggles last year, but he earned praise for his improvement in the spring. Junior-college transfer and former five-star prospect Kendall Sheffield’s elite physical tools make him a strong candidate to start. Freshmen five-star prospects Shaun Wade and Jeffrey Okudah will be in the mix as they were the No. 1 (Okudah) and No. 2 (Wade) cornerback prospects in the 2017 recruiting cycle, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings.OSU redshirt sophomore safety Malik Hooker (24) returns an interception during the second half of the Buckeyes game against Nebraska on Nov. 5, 2016. The Buckeyes won 62-3. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorPlayer Lost to NFL: Safety Malik Hooker (Indianapolis Colts, first round)Candidate(s) to replace: Erick Smith and Jordan FullerSituation: Entering the 2016 season, no one expected former three-star recruit Malik Hooker to become a first-team All-American and first-round NFL draft pick in less than a year. But that’s exactly what the ball-hawking safety did. Hooker snagged seven interceptions, returning three for touchdowns, including one during the Buckeyes’ 30-27 double-overtime win against Michigan.In Hooker’s place, either a veteran (senior Erick Smith) or a young up-and-comer (sophomore Jordan Fuller) with likely start next to senior safety Damon Webb, the only returning starting defensive back.Fuller seems to have the edge on Smith as he played with the first-team defense during the spring game. Last season, the Old Tappan, New Jersey, product played 71 defensive snaps and finished with 11 tackles. Smith, who suffered a torn ACL in November 2015, has played in 33 career games while at Ohio State. Last season, the backup played in all 13 games and picked up 16 tackles, one tackle for loss and a pass break-up. Player Lost to NFL: H-back Curtis Samuel (second round, Carolina Panthers)Candidate(s) to replace: Parris Campbell, Demario McCall and K.J. HillSituation: The loss of the best and, at times last year, only playmaker on the Buckeyes in Curtis Samuel leaves a massive void that must be filled by relatively inexperienced players. In 2016, Samuel led Ohio State with 74 catches for 865 yards and seven touchdowns. On the ground, he gained 771 yards on 97 rushing attempts, an average of 7.9 yards per carry.In 2017, Ohio State is relying on redshirt junior Parris Campbell, sophomore Demario McCall or redshirt sophomore K.J. Hill to shoulder the loss of Samuel and his production. The problem for the Buckeyes is that none of the three have been particularly impactful with the ball in their hands since arriving on campus.Campbell was named to the Paul Hornung Award watch list in July since he’s expected to get the first shot as starting H-back. But last year, the speedy Akron St. Vincent St. Mary product reeled in just 13 passes for 121 yards and rushed the ball four times. McCall offers the best running ability of the trio as he took 49 carries for 273 yards as a freshman. Hill caught 18 passes following 262 yards, but he might be needed as an outside receiver.OSU then-redshirt junior linebacker Chris Worley (35) quiets opposing fans after an interception in the first half during the Buckeyes game against the Wisconsin Badgers on Oct. 15, 2016 The Buckeyes won 30-23 in overtime. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Former Photo EditorPlayer Lost to NFL: Middle linebacker Raekwon McMillan (second round, Miami Dolphins)Candidate(s) to replace: Chris WorleySituation: A stalwart in the middle of Ohio State’s defense for the past two seasons, Raekwon McMillan’s loss as a leader and a defensive stopper will be felt. He led the Buckeyes in tackles last season, with 102, and he added seven tackles for loss, two sacks and two forced fumbles. McMillan was twice named to the All-Big Ten first team.In his place, redshirt senior Chris Worley will move from strongside outside linebacker to middle linebacker. In 2016, Worley finished with 70 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss and four pass break-ups. The vocal linebacker must transition smoothly to quarterbacking the defense as McMillan set a high bar.On the outside, redshirt junior Dante Booker will start at Worley’s former strongside linebacker position. Booker began the 2016 season as the starting weakside linebacker, but injured his knee and sat out the season, using a redshirt. Worley and Booker will be joined on the second level of the defense by junior Jerome Baker, who finished second on the team in tackles (83) and tackles for loss (9.5).Player Lost to NFL: Center Pat Elflein (third round, Minnesota Vikings)Candidate(s) to replace: Billy PriceSituation: Prior to the 2016 season, the Buckeyes decided to move Pat Elflein, who was playing right guard, to center. There, he won the Rimington Trophy – given to the best interior lineman in the nation – and was a first-team All-American. Redshirt senior Billy Price will follow in Elflein’s footsteps by sliding from right guard to center for his final season in scarlet and gray. Price,who was also named a first-team All-American in 2016, is a leading candidate to win the 2017 Rimington Trophy.In his place at right guard, redshirt junior Malcolm Pridgeon, redshirt junior Demetrius Knox and redshirt sophomore Matthew Burrell will compete during fall camp to start next to Price and junior right tackle Isaiah Prince. Burrell exited the spring seemingly holding a slight lead in the position battle as he started the spring game with the first-team offense.However, the competition is far from over. Pridgeon, who missed last season after a knee injury forced him to redshirt, and Knox, a former top recruit from Texas, will have an opportunity to win the job during fall camp. A fourth option to start at right guard, incoming freshman and five-star recruit Wyatt Davis, seems like an unlikely option, but the top guard in the 2017 recruiting cycle, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings, shouldn’t be counted out.OSU then-redshirt freshman wide receiver K.J. Hill (14) avoids a tackle during the second half of the Buckeyes game against Nebraska on Nov. 5, 2016. The Buckeyes won 62-3. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Former Photo EditorPlayer Lost to NFL: Wide receiver Noah Brown (seventh round, Dallas Cowboys)Candidate(s) to replace: K.J. Hill, Binjimen Victor, Johnnie Dixon, Terry McLaurin, Austin Mack, Trevon Grimes and Jaylen HarrisSituation: Though Noah Brown was not the consistent threat as an outside receiver that he was expected to be, he played a key role in a certain game for the Buckeyes’ offense. Notably, Brown gathered four touchdown receptions in Ohio State’s 45-24 win over Oklahoma. He finished the season second on the team with 32 catches for 402 yards and tied with Samuel for team lead with seven touchdowns.A large group of receivers, led by Hill, sophomore Binjimen Victor, redshirt junior Johnnie Dixon and redshirt junior Terry McLaurin, battled in the spring for starting reps.Hill finished with the most receptions (18) of any starting receiver candidate. The 6-foot-4, 195-pound Victor is the most physically gifted receiver on Ohio State’s roster, but his route-running is raw and he wasn’t able to break through in a relatively weak receiver group last year. Dixon exploded in the spring game, catching six passes for 108 yards and two touchdowns, but he as dealt with numerous knee and leg injuries since arriving in Columbus. McLaurin caught 11 passes for 114 yards last season. Sophomore Austin Mack and freshmen Trevon Grimes and Jaylen Harris could earn some playing time, but their youth hurts their potential to be relied upon in 2017. read more

Ronaldos move to Juventus is to keep him motivated – Kaka

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo’s shock move to Juventus has left many people baffled, in light of everything he has achieved at Real Madrid, but Kaka believes the success he has enjoyed over the years is what has prompted him to make the brave move away in order to remain motivatedThe five-time Ballon d’Or winner will be unveiled as a Juventus player later today following a glorious nine-year spell at Real, that had seen him win four Champions League titles and score 450 goals in just 438 games.Leaving one’s comfort zone for the unknown is something that many people choose to avoid in their lifetimes.But for someone like Ronaldo, who constantly looks for ways to better himself, it is just another way of pursuing their ultimate goal of becoming the best of all time.And Kaka has backed the Portuguese star and feels that now is the right time for Ronaldo to try something new at this stage of his career.“I think Cristiano is a very experienced player now, 33 years old so he knows and understands the situation very well,” said the Brazilian, according to Goal.“This decision to move from Madrid to Juventus, it’s a very conscious decision. He knows [it’s] time to move.“[He’s probably thinking] I achieved everything I could with Real Madrid and now it’s time to do something different to keep motivated.Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“That’s what moved him to accept the offer from Juve to change from Real Madrid to the Italian team.”While spending €112m for a 33-year-old seems rather risky, Kaka feels that it is a good investment for Juventus.When asked if the Serie A giants will be getting one of football’s greatest-ever plays, he replied: “I think so. Ronaldo, with his numbers, says that.“Everybody who had the privilege to watch him play… in my case, I had the privilege of training with him every day for four years.“I saw how professional he is, how strong he is, how motivated he is, how strong in his mind he is, and [can] see that he still wants to get to a different level.“I think Ronaldo will be remembered as one of the best players in the world.”Ronaldo has arrived for his medical at Juventus and will be holding his first press conference, since the announcement last week, later today.last_img read more

Sarri unconcerned by Chelsea defeat

first_imgChelsea manager Maurizio Sarri dismissed the significance of their defeat to Arsenal on Wednesday night due to the fact that their rivals were better prepared for the encounterThe Blues had a promising start at Dublin with Antonio Rudiger giving the club a sixth-minute lead over their London rivals when his header found the back of the net.But, following Alvaro Morata’s penalty-miss, Chelsea’s early dominance began to gradually decline with Arsenal grabbing a very late equaliser through Alexandre Lacazette in the third-minute of injury time to force a penalty shoot-out.After the first 11 penalties were all taken perfectly, Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s miss proved to be decisive with Arsenal leaving Ireland with a 6-5 win.However, due to Chelsea’s late start in their pre-season preparations, Sarri was still “really happy” with his new side.“We had our first training on 16 July,” he told the club website.Maurizio Sarri, JuventusMaurizio Sarri satisfied despite Juventus’ draw at Fiorentina Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Maurizio Sarri was satisfied with Juventus’ performance on Saturday afternoon after finishing a tough game at Fiorentina 0-0.“We were late compared to Arsenal’s physical condition. We did very well in the first half. We made a mistake in the last minute, but I’m really happy with the performance.”As for Morata’s penalty-miss, Sarri suggested that the birth of his twins on Saturday might have had an impact.“I don’t know if he is not confident. Maybe he was tired. The last three days for him were very intense, so maybe this match he was a bit tired. I am not worried about Morata,” he said.Next up for Chelsea is the Community Shield against Manchester City on Sunday.“The starting XI today is very near to the starting XI in the Community Shield,” added Sarri.last_img read more

Maxime Gonalons injury blow for Sevilla

Neymar takes PSG back on Champions League track

first_imgWith a hat-trick by the Brazilian and goals from Cavani, Di Maria, and Mbappé, PSG battered Red Star from Belgrade at Parc des Princes.After that first painful defeat from the first Champions League match of the season at Anfield Road, PSG really needed to win their second match this Wednesday against Red Star from Belgrade.This was supposed to be an easier match for the French giants, they of course didn’t disappoint and offered a great performance. But out of all the stars that the French champions have, there is no question that the absolute leader of the team is Neymar Jr who scored a hat-trick and was involved in pretty much all the rest of the goals from his teammates.The Brazilian star began his goal-romp with a beautiful free-kick over the men-barrier only 20 minutes after the match started, it took him only two minutes to get his second goal after a combination with Kylian Mbappé.Past the half-hour of the match, Edinson Cavani took a shot from inside the box and the ball got a deflection that confused the Red Star goalkeeper enough for Edinson to get his goal. But PSG was hungry for more goals, they were just getting started as they wanted to get at least half a dozen.Hat-trick hero 😍😍😍#PSGFKCZ pic.twitter.com/VU445N2csT— Paris Saint-Germain (@PSG_English) October 3, 2018Just a few minutes before halftime, PSG was in the middle of a long build-up that Thomas Meunier took on the right wing. The Belgian full-back saw Di Maria making the run towards the box and he sent a beautiful assist with the outside of his foot, the Argentinean didn’t waste the opportunity and scored his side’s fourth goal of the match right before the half-time whistle.German manager Thomas Tuchel asked his players to slow down a little bit, this is the moment in which players like Neymar can get fouled the most due to the frustration from his rivals. The French champions took note and played a much more reserved style of football until the final 20 minutes, when Kylian Mbappé appeared to score his goal because he obviously didn’t want to miss out on all the fun.PSG, Neymar, Ligue 1PSG ultras sent a warning letter to Neymar Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Brazilian superstar Neymar might play today his first game of the season for Paris Saint-Germain and the team’s ultras have warned him.Neymar was involved in the goal again, he saw Cavani making the run towards the box and dinked the ball for him to send the assist to the French lad, who only pushed the ball inside. It was already 5-0 at Parc des Princes, German midfielder Marko Marin was able to pull one back for Red Star with 15 minutes from the final whistle.But the star of the night, Neymar Jr wanted to get that hat-trick in order to feel that he was closer to his best form and he did it in style. With nine minutes still left on the clock, the Brazilian start took another free-kick but he did it with a lot more power and collocation than his first goal of the evening and gave PSG their sixth goal of the match for a convincing victory in the Champions League.Unfortunately for the French champions, this win tells us absolutely nothing in regards to the club’s actual level of performance. Red Star from Belgrade can hardly be considered a worthy opponent that can challenge them at all, we are going to have to wait for them to play against Napoli in the next two matches to know how well they can respond against a more competitive opponent.Also, in Ligue 1, PSG will play against Olympique Lyonnais on Sunday before the final international break of 2018. Neymar will get a new chance to prove his worth again, but today’s performance was more than enough for him to keep earning that lost confidence he had before, during, and right after the summer.FULL TIME: PSG flex their offensive 💪in the @ChampionsLeague with a 6-1 win over Red Star Belgrade! #PSGFKCZ #ALLEZPARIS!! 🔴🔵 pic.twitter.com/4F5XPRBdyw— Paris Saint-Germain (@PSG_English) October 3, 2018Which of these was your favorite goal from PSG against Red Star from Belgrade?
