first_imgSale of Blackjewel’s Wyoming mines in serious trouble FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Casper Star Tribune:Bankrupt coal operator Blackjewel called the sale of its two idling Wyoming coal mines “dead,” according to a statement made by a key creditor in court documents Tuesday.The announcement casts another layer of doubt over the chance Campbell County’s Eagle Butte and Belle Ayr coal mines — the nation’s fourth and sixth largest by production — will reopen in the foreseeable future.Blackjewel filed a motion Thursday to separate the sale of its two Wyoming coal mines to coal company Contura Energy from the sale of its Pax Surface Mine in West Virginia to the same company. But in response to the motion, Riverstone Credit Partners, a senior creditor owed millions of dollars, said the company’s motion to revise the sale terms violated the original settlement reached with lenders.Although a federal bankruptcy judge approved the sale of three Blackjewel mines to Contura on Aug. 7, the deal has not been finalized. The sale hinges on the final approval of the federal government, after it objected to outstanding royalties and leasing terms of the Wyoming mines.What’s more, the sale may be held up over “Contura’s insistence on shortening the existing mine plans at the western mines,” Tuesday’s court document’s revealed.More: Blackjewel says sale of Wyoming mines is ‘dead,’ according to creditorlast_img read more


Basketball great Kobe Bryant dies in helicopter crash

first_imgRelatedPosts Kobe Bryant honoured in Bosnia with giant mural Kobe Bryant helicopter crash post-mortem released Kobe Bryant’s wife files claim against LA County sheriff over crash photos Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter crash in Calabasas Sunday morning, TMZ Sports has confirmed. Kobe was traveling with at least three other people in his private helicopter when it went down. A fire broke out. Emergency personnel responded, but nobody on board survived. Five people are confirmed dead. Vanessa Bryant was not among those on board. The cause of the crash is under investigation. Bryant has famously used a helicopter to travel for years – dating back to when he played for the Lakers. He was known for commuting from Newport Beach, CA to the Staples Center in DTLA in his Sikorsky S-76 chopper. KB is survived by his wife, Vanessa, and their four daughters – Gianna, Natalia and Bianca and newborn Capri. He was recently spotted at NBA games with his daughter Gianna, a rising star basketball player herself. Their youngest daughter, Capri, was just born in June 2019. Bryan is widely considered one of the greatest NBA players of all time – making 18 All-Star teams during his 20 year career with the Lakers. He was a first-round pick in the 1996 draft, winning five NBA championships, two NBA Finals MVPs and he was the league MVP in 2008. The Lakers famously retired both of Bryan’s jerseys, number 8 and 24, the only player in team history to receive that honor. Bryan’s accomplishments stand far outside of the basketball world. He won an Oscar for his short film: “Dear Basketball,” in 2018.Tags: Kobe BryantVanessa Bryantlast_img read more


NFL notes: Niners give CB extension

Posted On Jan 11 2020 by
first_imgCornerback Walt Harris completed a two-year contract extension with the San Francisco 49ers on Monday. Harris, an 11-year veteran who earned his first trip to the Pro Bowl in his first season with the 49ers, led the NFC with eight interceptions. The extension keeps Harris with San Francisco through 2009. Fowler had signed a four-year offer sheet from Philadelphia on Sunday. But the Titans, who visited with the linebacker last week before he went to Philadelphia, topped that deal Monday, and his agent Alan Herman said Fowler signed the offer sheet. The 6-foot-3, 250-pound Fowler has played in 33 games with three starts, including the 2005 season finale when he had a team-high nine tackles. He led Dallas with 24 special teams tackles last season. If the Cowboys decline to match Tennessee’s offer, the Titans would not have to compensate them because Fowler entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent. Arizona assistant fired: The Arizona Cardinals fired wide receivers coach Richie Anderson, four days after his arrest in a police prostitution sting operation. Anderson, a fullback in the NFL for 13 seasons, was hired by new Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt in January. Anderson, 35, was arrested Thursday on an accusation of soliciting an undercover Phoenix police officer posing as a prostitute. After starring on a mediocre defense last season, Harris will have plenty of competition in training camp this summer. The 49ers signed free-agent cornerback Nate Clements to an eight-year, $80 million deal earlier in the month, so Harris will compete for a starting job with Shawntae Spencer, who got a contract extension last fall. Titans make offer to LBFowler: The Tennessee Titans agreed to terms on an offer sheet with restricted free agent linebacker Ryan Fowler, a deal the Dallas Cowboys will have seven days to match. center_img Signings: Offensive tackle Wade Smith, who played in nine games with the Jets last season, re-signed with New York. … The Detroit Lions agreed to terms on a two-year contract with free agent receiver Shaun McDonald. … The Buffalo Bills re-signed free agent running back Anthony Thomas. … The Washington Redskins re-signed backup defensive lineman Ryan Boschetti. Jags’ receiver charged: Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Charles Sharon was charged with stealing a handgun that police said was found under the seat of the player’s sport utility vehicle during a drug-related search. Sharon and a companion were arrested Saturday after a Tampa police officer noticed the odor of marijuana coming from Sharon’s SUV parked in the Ybor City entertainment district, a police report said. Smith joins ESPN: Former Dallas Cowboys running back Emmitt Smith has been hired by ESPN as a studio analyst for its NFL pregame coverage. Smith, the National Football League’s all-time leading rusher, will appear on the network’s NFL Countdown and Monday Night Countdown shows. He will also appear as an analyst on ESPN Radio and ESPN.com, the network announced. `Big Cat’ dies: Ernie “Big Cat” Ladd, who played on championship professional football teams before finding more lucrative success in pro wrestling, has died in Grambling, La. He was 68. Ladd played in the America Football League and is a member of the World Wrestling Federation Hall of Fame. He died Saturday after a long bout with cancer. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!last_img
