Relay for Life looking for participants

Senate approves Hatch amendment

The U.S. Senate today approved an amendment to the Labor Department appropriations bill (H.R. 3043), sponsored by Sen. Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah), which aims to gather more information that could be used to improve safety for western miners.

Co-sponsored by Sen. Bob Bennett (R-Utah), the measure would provide for a study on retreat room and pillar mining practices. Retreat mining involves excavating an underground chamber while leaving behind pillars of material for support. Once the deposit is depleted, miners remove the pillars and "retreat" back towards the mine's entrance.

Although a common technique, retreat mining has come under fire because some credit it for the Crandall Canyon mine disaster.

Power outage to affect Price area

Price city has announced that during the downtown power substation construction there will be a number of times that their electric customers will be affected by power outages.

The first power outage in the construction effort will take place on Sunday, Oct. 28 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 2 p.m.

A notice will be distributed to the customers who will be impacted by the shut down on Oct. 24 and 25.

The notices are being hand delivered and the city says it will make every effort to contact customers personally about the situations as they arise.

Calling in when the outages hit only overextends the city's staff as they have no more information than is available to the public.
