Companies seek tariffs on solar imports]]> http://gazette.com/solar-boom-or-bust-companies-seek-tariffs-on-solar-imports/article/feed/495169?custom_click=rss http://gazette.com/solar-boom-or-bust-companies-seek-tariffs-on-solar-imports/article/feed/495169?custom_click=rss WASHINGTON (AP) — Cheap solar panels imported from China and other countries have led to a boom in the U.S. solar industry, where rooftop and other installations have surged 10-fold since 2011.

But two U.S. solar manufacturers say the flood of imports has led one to bankruptcy and forced the other to lay off three-quarters of its workforce.

The International Trade Commission is set to decide Friday whether the imports, primarily from Asia, are causing "serious injury" to the companies. If so, the commission will recommend this fall whether the Trump administration should impose tariffs that could double the price of solar panels from abroad.

SAN DIEGO (AP) — The Colorado Rockies keep stumbling as they try to protect their tenuous hold on the NL's second wild card.

They've lost four straight games and six of eight, the latest coming Thursday night when veteran left-hander Clayton Richard and rookie slugger Christian Villanueva led the San Diego Padres to a 3-0 win.

Richard (8-14) struck out eight in 7 1/3 innings a day after agreeing to a two-year contract extension through 2019, and Villanueva homered for the second straight game and drove in two runs.

Manager Bud Black said the "spirit's good" for a Rockies team that kept its one-game lead over Milwaukee thanks to the Brewers' 5-3 loss to the Chicago Cubs.

KMGH-TV reported (http://bit.ly/2xyLWWO ) Wednesday that Parks officials say 44-year-old Miguel Lopez's rally violated trash, food, security and noise limit requirements. But Lopez says the allegations are a ploy to squash the marijuana rally.

Lopez and the rally's attorney Robert Corry have brought the dispute to court. The hearing officer, Judge David Ramirez, is expected to issue a decision in November, upholding or overturning the city's decision.

Corry says if the city's decision is upheld, they will appeal to Denver Distr

The state Oil and Gas Conservation Commission outlined the goals for the new rules in a brief meeting with industry representatives and the public.

Some energy company officials raised questions about how much it will cost them to comply with the rules and how many kinds of pipelines the rules will cover.

The rules will apply to flow lines, which carry oil, gas and wastewater from wells to tanks and other gathering equipment.

Regulators have not yet written the rules but said they would include standards for designing, t

Sheriff's office spokesman Mark Techmeyer says deputies went to the area on reports that a driver was speeding and passing cars on the shoulder of a highway Thursday afternoon. The driver, whose name and age have not been released, exited the highway and parked at a nearby auto parts store.

Techmeyer says the deputy found the car and fired at the suspect during a confrontation. The spokesman did not release any other details.

The deputy was not injured.

The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver said it would be a waste of time to rule on the regulations, which govern hydraulic fracturing on federal lands, because the Trump administration has already begun the process of revoking them.

The ruling left the status of the regulations unclear, and neither the federal Bureau of Land Management nor its parent agency, the Interior Department, immediately responded to phone calls and emails seeking comment.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Von Miller says he's baffled by Cowboys wide receiver Noah Brown's low hit on him Sunday.

The Broncos linebacker pushed through Brown's block on the game's second snap and Brown got up and dived at Miller's knees as Denver's star chased down Ezekiel Elliott on a hand-off from Dak Prescott.

Miller shook off the hit to have a monster game in Denver's 42-17 win , but he has dealt with soreness in his left knee this week.

"My stance is as a player I've always tried to take care of my players on my football team and opponents as well, whether it's the quarterbacks, receivers, the running backs. So, when it's the other way around, it's just baffling," Miller said Thursday after returning to practice

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — With Jamaal Charles barreling toward the end zone, Broncos left tackle Garett Bolles felt someone kick his left leg, sending a searing jolt through his body and a sense of foreboding into his heart.

Was his rookie season really over already?

Pounding the grass in frustration, the first-round draft pick out of the University of Utah figured he'd torn his Achilles tendon.

Carted off the field, he waved to the crowd.

This was goodbye, he thought.

"I've never been hurt before and this was something that was very new to me," Bolles said Thursday after surprising even himself by returning to practice just four days after getting hurt.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — LeSean McCoy wouldn't be topping 9,000 career yards rushing if he spent time wilting at the prospect of facing defenses stacked against him or deflecting blame after a bad outing.

And the Buffalo Bills running back isn't about to start now.

Stopped in his tracks by Luke Kuechly and the Carolina Panthers last weekend, McCoy expects much more from himself with Von Miller and the Denver Broncos coming to town Sunday.

"In this league, you've got to deal with it. Too much complaining. Too many excuses," McCoy said, shouldering the blame for being held to 9 yards on 12 rushes — a career low for a game in which he has more than seven carries — in a 9-3 loss to the Panthers .

(AP) — A new report says low commodity prices and weak farm incomes are continuing to hamper the rural economy in parts of 10 Plains and Midwestern states.

The Rural Mainstreet Index for the region fell to its lowest level of the year at 39.6 from August's 42.2. The index released Thursday ranges between 0 and 100, with any number under 50 indicating a shrinking economy.

Creighton University economist Ernie Goss, who oversees the survey of bankers, says more than half of the bankers reported that they have restructured farm loans. Nearly 20 percent have increased their collateral requirements.

Bankers reported a 2.1 percent increase in farm loan defaults over the past year.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — You can rattle off all sorts of reasons C.J. Anderson is back to being one of the NFL's top running backs 11 months after a right knee injury cut short his 2016 season.

Marathon bike rides .

Improved O-line.

New power running scheme .

Better backfield competition .

Perhaps nothing explains his return to excellence as much as what he said at his locker this week.

"I'm back to playing undrafted."

No more satisfaction for having won a Super Bowl.

No more exhaling after signing a big contract.

No more challenging the plays that are called.

KUSA - “Magical” is how one person described the transformation of the Colorado Rockies. It’s subtle at first, but Mother Nature isn’t wasting any time.

“It’s interesting,” 9NEWS Chief Meteorologist Kathy Sabine said, “because this year, we’re getting reports the leaves are changing early. The leaves have already begun the change process, probably about a week earlier than average.”

Viewers have sent in photos of some aspens in the Rocky Mountains that have fully transformed into shimmering gold colors.

Just a few days ago, a Princes Kay Plumtree began turning at the Denver Botanic Gardens, where even brighter colors are expected.
