Wyoming coal producer Cloud Peak files for bankruptcy

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Casper Star Tribune:Cloud Peak Energy, the coal giant that operates two Wyoming mines, filed for bankruptcy Friday amid mounting debt and declining demand.The filing follows months of troubling signs for the Powder River Basin operator, which for a time avoided the economic difficulties of its competitors but had of late experienced growing financial challenges as the market for its product diminished.The company’s filing indicated it had, as of the end of the year, nearly $929 million in assets and almost $635 million in total debts.In its announcement, the company said its mining operations would continue as normal as it moves through the bankruptcy process. But the filing represents the latest concerning episode for coal, which has been one of the main drivers of the state’s economy, along with oil and natural gas.Cloud Peak owns three Powder River Basin mines: the Antelope and Cordero Rojo in Wyoming and Spring Creek in Montana. The mines shipped 50 million tons of coal in 2018. Cloud Peak is Wyoming’s third-largest coal producer, and its mines represent 20 percent of the state’s coal miners in the Powder River Basin.Cloud Peak is the fourth major coal producer in Wyoming, the top coal-mining state, to file for bankruptcy in recent years. Bristol, Tennessee-based Alpha Natural Resources filed for bankruptcy in 2015, followed by top-producing Peabody Energy and Arch Coal in 2016. Westmoreland Coal, which operates the Kemmerer Mine in southwest Wyoming, filed for bankruptcy in October.More: Wyoming coal giant Cloud Peak files for bankruptcy Wyoming coal producer Cloud Peak files for bankruptcylast_img read more

first_imgSAFE Credit Union is connecting with its “mobile-only members” to remind them to optimize their cash-back rewards, to offer prizes at ballgames and to issue other alerts and offers on the device that comes with them everywhere they go.Mobile access is popular among SAFE CU’s 235,000 members, says Danielle Juarez, AVP/digital banking strategy and innovation for the $2.8 billion Folsom, California, credit union. Of the 150,000 members who are digital-only, about 70% engage primarily through their mobile devices, and 50% rely on mobile exclusively.So it stands to reason that communicating with members via their favorite channel will enhance results. When SAFE CU sent a reminder through its mobile app for members to select their quarterly bonus category to earn 5% cash back on credit card purchases, the response increased 30% over the previous quarter, Juarez notes.Another mobile promotion connects with baseball fans who attend Sacramento River Cats games. As members arrive at the Class AAA team’s Raley Field, they receive a notification that every purchase they make at the ballpark with their SAFE CU debit or credit cards will enter them in a drawing for prizes like River Cats or San Francisco Giants tickets, autographed baseballs and on-field batting practice. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Strasburg hit hard in debut; O’s-Nats suspended after rain

September 8, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: npwsfhnnm.

first_img COMMENT LIVE TV First Published: 10th August, 2020 11:13 IST WATCH US LIVE Associated Press Television News  Stephen Strasburg’s 2020 debut for the Nationals unraveled in a five-run fifth inning Sunday, when the World Series MVP allowed six consecutive batters to reach base before being lifted, and Washington’s game against the Baltimore Orioles was suspended in the top of the sixth after the grounds crew had trouble unrolling the tarp during a rain delay.Baltimore led 5-2 when play was interrupted by a shower. It will resume Friday at Baltimore, where the teams already were supposed to open a three-game series, meaning the Orioles will try to finish off this three-game sweep at Nationals Park while at Camden Yards.The bad weather lasted only about 20 minutes, but the game was held up for a total of more than two hours before it was called, while attempts were made to make the soaked infield dirt playable.After a while, umpires Laz Diaz, the crew chief, and Tim Timmons came out to inspect the field, pointing cell phones toward the ground to take photos, it appeared. They spoke for a bit with Orioles manager Brandon Hyde at the edge of the outfield grass, then walked over near the visiting dugout to chat with Nationals GM Mike Rizzo.About a half-hour later came the announcement of a suspension.Strasburg missed his first two starts of the season because of a nerve issue with his throwing hand, and while the Nationals pronounced him 100% ready to go — “He’s completely past it. He wouldn’t be on the mound today if he wasn’t,” Rizzo said a half-hour before the game — the righty didn’t look that way in the key inning.Baltimore strung together a double, four singles and a walk, including Hanser Alberto’s two-run double and Anthony Santander’s two-run single.The walk came on just four pitches, and Strasburg vigorously shook his right hand after the last, then used his glove to wave off manager Dave Martinez and a team trainer, who both emerged from the dugout.At that point, the game was still scoreless. Eventually — five runs later — Martinez went out there to lift the ace, who threw 69 pitches.Starlin Castro’s first homer for the Nationals made it 5-2 in the fifth.Soon thereafter, the rain came.Rizzo said there haven’t been any discussions with ownership about his contract, which expires after this season. “But I’m not worried about it. They’ll take care of it when they deem themselves ready to take care of it,” Rizzo said. “So I haven’t given it much thought.” Asked what the timeline might be for discussing the status of Martinez, whose contract includes a club option for 2021 that hasn’t been exercised, Rizzo responded: “I don’t have a timeline, but Davey is deserving of one. He’s earned it. He’s a great representative of the Washington Nationals.”Baltimore claimed RHP Jorge López off waivers from the Kansas City Royals, who designated him for assignment Friday. The 27-year-old right-hander has a 27.00 ERA in 2020 after giving up two runs while getting two outs in his lone outing for Kansas City.Orioles: C Pedro Severino was out of the lineup because his left hand was sore after he was hit by a pitch there in the ninth inning Saturday night. … SS José Iglesias was given a day off before the team’s scheduled off-day Monday so he could get 48 hours to rest his left quadriceps muscle, which has been a lingering issue this season.Nationals: RHP Max Scherzer, who left his last start after one inning because of a bothersome right hamstring, is slated to take his next scheduled turn, Tuesday at the New York Mets. “We are not making any firm announcement, but I would imagine he is going to take the mound on Tuesday,” Rizzo said.Orioles: Open a three-game series at the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday.Nationals: Will play away from Washington for the first time in 2020, taking a train New York for a four-game series at the Mets that opens Monday with Nationals LHP Patrick Corbin (1-0, 3.00 ERA) on the mound. That will be followed by series at Baltimore and Atlanta. The Nationals originally were supposed to head to Miami for three games starting July 31, but that series was postponed because of the Marlins’ COVID-19 outbreak.(Image credit: AP) center_img Written By Last Updated: 10th August, 2020 11:13 IST Strasburg Hit Hard In Debut; O’s-Nats Suspended After Rain  Stephen Strasburg’s 2020 debut for the Nationals unraveled in a five-run fifth inning Sunday, when the World Series MVP allowed six consecutive batters to reach base before being lifted, and Washington’s game against the Baltimore Orioles was suspended in the top of the sixth after the grounds crew had trouble unrolling the tarp during a rain delay.
