Former Utah lawmaker plans to build luxury desert golf course, locals are not thrilled Tue, 21 Sep 2021 01:32:41 +0000

Editor’s Note This story is only available to Salt Lake Tribune subscribers. Thank you for supporting local journalism.

If you build a world class golf course in the southern Utah desert, will they come?

That’s the $ 10 million bet that the Kane County Water Conservation District is hoping to place with other people’s money.

Led by retired Republican lawmaker Mike Noel, the Water District plans to build a luxury course outside of Kanab – where few residents seem interested in losing $ 100 or more on a round of golf – to attract even more tourists to Kane County.

Earlier this summer, Noel convinced the Utah Community Impact Board, or CIB, to authorize a low-interest $ 10 million loan to fund his golfing dreams, but the proposal has many obstacles. to cross. Before that money is released and the project can move forward, Noel must partner with Kane County to manage the golf course and with the state, which owns half of the 200 acres that Noel has. proposed for the project.

Now, the Kane County River Basin District is competing for this land with at least two other development proposals, submitted last month to the Utah School and Institutional Trust Land Administration, or SITLA.

But such uncertainties do not prevent the small rural hydraulic district from embarking on luxury golf. Last year, she paid world-renowned golf course architect David McLay Kidd $ 75,000 to develop preliminary plans for a course on the shores of the district’s Jackson Flat Reservoir. It’s money well spent, according to Noel.

(Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune) Representative Mike Noel, R-Kanab, center, in 2016.

Noel retired from the Utah legislature in 2019 after spending 16 years in the House, where he was a major influence on public land issues, lobbied for the transfer of these lands and associated roads to the state, defended the Lake Powell pipeline project, and led opposition to national monument designations.

A former member of the Bureau of Land Management, he operates a ranch in Johnson Canyon, where the controversial pipeline is said to discharge 4,000 acre-feet of water.

“We are in the process of making the transition across southern Utah to a tourist community. This is what we do, whether we like it or not, ”Noel told CIB at its July 1 meeting. “So we are trying to be one step ahead of this project.

The rare profitable golf course?

While most public golf courses require substantial grants, Noel argues his would pay for itself by attracting thousands of discerning high-end golfers to stay in Kanab for a few days. So even if the green fees don’t cover all operating expenses, these big spenders will leave enough money in Kanab – a tourist economy town in the heart of southern Utah’s national parks – for the investment. worth it.

That’s a lot of wishful thinking, critics say, who argue that the golf course represents a misuse of public money and resources.

“It is unwise to spend more than $ 10 million of our public revenue to build infrastructure that few people in our community will use,” said Sky Chaney, a Kanab resident, who heads a local taxpayer association. “The construction of this project will prevent the construction of other projects that will further benefit the residents of our community. “

(Kane County Water Conservancy District) A render produced by architect David McLay Kidd provides a preliminary design for an 18-hole luxury golf course project that retired Utah lawmaker Mike Noel is looking to build at the outside Kanab.

Chaney also doubts Noel’s golf course attracts enough golfers to afford it. Not only is Kanab difficult to access compared to other destinations near St. George, he noted, but its summers are hot and winters cold.

“Most serious golfers are careful to choose courses where access is not difficult and the weather is good for golfing,” said Chaney. “Kanab is not an ideal place for either of these two requirements.”

In a survey of county residents commissioned by the Taxpayers Association, 93% of those polled said they oppose the use of public money and local water to be used on a course. luxury golf.

A green island in a red desert

Critics are also unhappy with the planting of water-guzzling greens and fairways in a desert at a time when Utah’s water resources are drying up in the face of an unrelenting drought. But Noel says the course would be irrigated with 319 acre-feet of water that would otherwise go onto the alfalfa fields.

“None of these waters is culinary water. The diversion point is on Kanab Creek. It’s below the area where all of the city’s water is taken, ”Noel said. “It’s not just a golf course. It’s also a very, very sophisticated design course to save water as much as possible.

The Utah CIB distributes millions in grants and loans from a revolving fund funded by federal mining revenues. By law, this money must be spent on projects in the communities where these revenues are generated on projects intended to mitigate the impacts associated with mining.

Impact board staff warned the board that Noel’s loan request did not match CIB’s mission, but the board approved it after hearing Noel’s speech.

“It seems to be a project that is well outside a water development mission. In reality. I’m not sure this is the right entity to apply for a golf course, ”CIB staff member Candace Powers told the board. “Golf courses don’t necessarily generate income and, in fact, are very expensive to maintain. “

(Kane County Water Conservancy District) Retired Utah Lawmaker Mike Noel proposes to build a luxury golf course at this site outside of Kanab on state-owned land next to Jackson Flat Reservoir. In his role as director of the Kane County Water Conservation District, he obtained approval for a $ 10 million loan from the Utah Community Impact Board to build the course designed by David McLay Kidd.

Impact dollars typically fund basic facilities and infrastructure, such as upgrading roads, public safety equipment, sewers, and building prisons. CIB has embarked on economic development projects in recent years, which has resulted in controversy and at least one lawsuit.

CIB has funded four golf courses in the past, including one now defunct in Kanab, according to Christina Davis, spokesperson for CIB’s parent agency, Department of Workforce Services.

Focus on an influx of tourists

At the July meeting, CIB unanimously agreed to grant the water district a loan of $ 10 million over 30 years at an interest rate of 1%. Noel said the repayment money would be tied to Kane County’s Transitional Room Tax (TRT) revenues, so if the golf course’s revenues aren’t enough to pay off the loan, the district could fall back on this solid revenue stream from hotel stays.

In other words, federal money funds the project and a tourist tax reimburses it. Under this plan, Kane County taxpayers and water taxpayers are not affected. Unless, of course, golfers don’t show up to play in sufficient numbers and the county has to bail out the golf course.

That won’t be a problem, Noël assured CIB. District consultant Z. Gordon Davidson conducted a market analysis that predicts the price will host 18,000 turns in the first year and stabilize at 25,000 turns in the fourth year. At $ 100 per spin, the net operating income at this level of play would be $ 802,000.

Noel told CIB that Kane County was participating in the project as a partner and that the county commission had approved the use of TRT’s income to the tune of $ 350,000 per year to repay the loan. This is the amount the district would have to pay to repay a $ 10 million loan at 1% interest, he said.

Noel also claimed that district attorney Rob Van Dyke, who is also the elected attorney for Kane County, drafted an interlocal agreement regarding the governance of the golf course.

“In the agreement, there would be a board of directors. The board of directors would be composed of members of the [Kanab] City Council, the [Kane] County Commission, ”Noel told CIB. “The departmental commission wants it. That’s what they told us. They want to be the engine of the recreational part. “

All of this came as news to the Kane County Commission, which issued a letter to the public clarifying its current situation.

County Kane is still on the fence

In a recent interview, Commissioner Brent Chamberlain said Kane County had only just started doing due diligence and was nowhere near committing TRT revenue for the golf course or even participating in the golf course. as a partner. He also said he had not seen any draft interlocal agreements and did not expect the county to complete an independent analysis.

“There is no agreement between the county and the water district at the moment,” he said. “It’s a bit premature. In fact, it is premature to say that it is done and that the riding will support it. If it all comes back and says it’s a worthwhile thing to do, we can do it, but it hasn’t happened.

He warned that the water district’s market analysis “paints a pretty rosy picture” and the county needs to conduct a separate study. His hope is that the course doesn’t require a cent of TRT money to pay off the CIB loan, let alone the $ 350,000 per year that Noel is looking for.

“It would be nice if he could support himself,” Chamberlain said. “Is part of the equation economically viable? Would he be able to stand on his own feet? Would he get to that point, hopefully soon enough, where he wouldn’t demand those kinds of payments from the county? “

All of these questions will be moot if the school trust land managers decide to partner with someone else to develop the land. These officials are required by law to seek the maximum financial return on the 3.4 million acres they oversee, which in this case may not be a golf course.

After Noel looked to lease the 100-acre parcel, SITLA went looking for better deals, according to Kyle Pasley, property manager at SITLA’s St. George office. Two proposals were submitted by the September 1 deadline and are currently under review.

“We review them through our board of directors and our real estate committee,” Pasley said. “A decision will be made based on what is in the best financial interest of the [school] confidence.”

SITLA’s board is expected to select a winner at its November 18 meeting.

Update, September 20, 2021 This story has been updated to include information regarding the number of golf courses that the Utah Community Impact Board (CIB) has funded in the past.

Lawyer for Trump’s CFO says he suspects other pending indictments Mon, 20 Sep 2021 15:09:22 +0000

NEW YORK (AP) – An attorney for indicted corporate finance chief Donald Trump told a judge on Monday he had “good reason to believe” that more indictments are pending in an ongoing investigation At New York. in the real estate empire of the former president.

Attorney Bryan Scarlatos made the remark during the first appearance of the Trump organization’s chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg since his July 1 indictment of tax evasion.. Scarlatos did not say what had led him to believe more people would be charged in the closely watched case.

In recent weeks, two leaders of the Trump Organization have testified before a grand jury, which continues to meet behind closed doors to hear testimony and consider the evidence in the case.

The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office declined to comment.

“Mr. Weisselberg is estranged from the Trump Organization. He is the only individual here whose freedom is at stake,” Scarlatos said. “What worries me is that he will become collateral damage in a fight over wide between the Trump organization and the prosecutor’s office. “

Scarlatos raised the issue of more possible indictments while arguing for sufficient time to review up to 6 million pages of documents he said prosecutors were turning over as evidence, calling it of “Herculean task” and claiming that new indictments would create a “moving target”. “

Prosecutors said Weisselberg was “no stranger” to many of the documents because they include Trump Organization business records that the executive likely produced or reviewed in the course of his work.

Judge Juan Manuel Merchan has given both parties until next spring to file motions in the case. He said he would rule on the motions at a hearing on July 12, 2022, the next time Weisselberg is scheduled to appear in court.

Merchan said he expects to set a trial date then and will likely set it for late August or early September next year.

“The reason I’m mentioning it now is because it’s on everyone’s radar,” Merchan said. “I don’t have a specific date yet.

Weisselberg pleaded not guilty to the charges he raised over $ 1.7 million in non-accounting compensation, including apartment rent, car payments, and school fees.

Trump’s company is also indicted in the case, which prosecutors called a “sweeping and bold” tax evasion scheme.

Weisselberg sat quietly next to his lawyers during Monday’s brief hearing and did not speak to reporters on the way to court. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, everyone wore masks and the courtroom had clear plastic partitions between the different parts.

Trump himself has not been charged with any wrongdoing. He condemned the case, the first to result from New York authorities’ two-year investigation into the former president’s trade relations, as a “political witch hunt.”

Trump said his company’s actions were standard business practice and by no means a crime.

According to the indictment, from 2005 to this year, the Trump Organization and Weisselberg tricked tax authorities into conspiring to pay senior executives through lucrative benefits and other means.

Weisselberg alone has been accused of defrauding the federal government, state and city of more than $ 900,000 in unpaid taxes and unearned tax refunds.

The most serious charge against Weisselberg, robbery, carries five to 15 years in prison. Charges of tax evasion against the company are punishable by a fine of double the amount of unpaid taxes, or $ 250,000, whichever is greater.

Weisselberg, 74, has intimate knowledge of the Trump Organization’s financial transactions for nearly five decades in the business. The charges against him could allow prosecutors to pressure him to cooperate with the investigation and tell them what he knows, but so far there has been no sign of this.

The case is led by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. and New York Attorney General Letitia James, both Democrats.

The Trump Organization is the entity through which the former president manages his many businesses, including his investments in office towers, hotels and golf courses, his numerous marketing deals and his television activities.

Trump handed over the day-to-day operations of the company to his sons Donald Jr. and Eric after he was elected president.

According to the indictment, Weisselberg paid the rent on his Manhattan apartment with company checks and ordered the company to pay its utility and parking bills as well.

The company also paid for tuition at private schools for Weisselberg’s grandchildren with checks signed by Trump, as well as for Mercedes cars driven by Weisselberg and his wife, and gave him money for tip around Christmas.

These benefits were listed in internal Trump company documents as part of Weisselberg’s compensation, but were not included in his W-2 forms or otherwise reported, and the company did not withhold taxes on them. value, prosecutors said.

Trump’s company also issued checks, at Weisselberg’s request, to pay for personal expenses and improvements to his homes and an apartment used by one of his sons, such as new beds, televisions to flat-screen TVs, carpeted floors, and furniture, prosecutors said.

McGinley puts ‘contender’ Harrington in same league as Ballesteros and Faldo Mon, 20 Sep 2021 01:30:00 +0000

Winning a Ryder Cup in the United States is a guarantee of golfing immortality for a European and Paul McGinley can’t wait to see how Pádraig Harrington will go about making it successful at Whistling Straits.

he European skipper has what modern business leaders like to call “strategic agility”, or what McGinley calls “the ability to see around the corners”.

Now that discussions of Harrington’s three generic choices have died down, at least until the autopsy, figuring out how he might plan for a fifth European victory on American soil is a fascinating exercise for the first Irishman to be captain of the United States. ‘Europe, achieving a brilliant victory. at Gleneagles in 2014.

McGinley doesn’t want to guess his lifelong friend, but he’s certainly eager to see the mindset he instills in the players and the improvements he can make to an away model who is far less polished than Europe’s successful home formula.

“Padraig’s strength is that he’s a lateral thinker,” said his old school friend and former Ryder Cup partner. “He will have statistical teams around him who will be more unique in their objective. But the fact that he can see in the corners, as they say, is an advantage. He’s a born competitor and I would include Seve and Faldo in all of that.

“Has there been a better competitor on the European Tour than Padraig? I would definitely put him in the same category as Seve and Faldo as one of the biggest contenders we’ve ever seen.

McGinley was close to both Ballesteros and Faldo and having spent more time in Harrington’s company than anyone over the past 25 years except his wife and caddies, he speaks with authority.

While Ballesteros micro-managed a victory at Valderrama in 1997, Faldo’s laissez-faire approach was a disaster at Valhalla in 2008, leaving McGinley wondering what Harrington will do.

As a player, he was always keen to put his head on the block late in the course and take the occasional disaster on the chin knowing he would get more wins in the long run by going for it all.

It remains to be seen how that translates into team management, but that’s what totally fascinated McGinley as he prepares to analyze everything for Sky Sports this week.

“Can you translate this competitive instinct into your players? McGinley wonders. “That’s what I can’t wait to see from him. If the players can embody Pádraig Harrington’s mindset, then I think we are incredibly lucky. If he can translate that natural instinct that he has tapped into over the years in the team and bring out a very competitive and focused team, then we have a hell of a chance. “

The Americans are stronger on paper with six rookies, scar-free from the Ryder Cup on a course where driving distance isn’t a huge factor, as career-best McGinley’s fourth-place finish at the 2004 PGA Championship.

With Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Zach Johnson, Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler and Matt Kuchar replaced by rookies Collin Morikawa, Patrick Cantlay, Xander Sc Chaudele, Harris English, Daniel Berger and Scottie Scheffler, it’s a new American team.

With Bryson DeChambeau, Justin Thomas and Tony Finau having only one selection each and the American experience provided by Brooks Koepka, Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson, Europe will fight not only against the American New Wave, but also against the 99% of local spectators.

“You can see the quality of a team by looking at who missed the game,” said McGinley. “The options Steve Stricker had with his wilds were phenomenal. Billy Horschel being one, Patrick Reed obviously being another. Sam Burns. There were options and shapes everywhere he looked.

“There’s no doubt about that; we’re really up against it. But listen, that doesn’t mean we can’t win. We’ve faced it before and won.

“I can’t wait to see how we go about doing it and I can’t wait to see the captain of Padraig and his ideas, the focus and the state of mind that the team comes to play with and his decision making in terms of twinning.

“The thing to remember is that there isn’t just one way to become a captain. I am interested to see which is Padraig’s path. We have a well-established model for winning at home, embodied by Thomas in Paris, but we have not chiseled it in the same way outside.

“It’s still a work in progress. There is no doubt that Padraig will take this model and determine what we need to do to win away more often.

“It’s obviously much more difficult, especially against a team as stacked as the American is. We are against it but bring it on. We relish the challenge. We like it. We like to be underdogs and we’re going to be underdogs for sure. “

Harrington is looking to build 16 strong partnerships on Friday and Saturday so his team can take the lead on Sunday.

“What’s in our favor is that we have a very experienced team that won’t be edgy playing away against 99.9% American home support,” said McGinley. “We have a couple of really big players in the world right now, including Jon Rahm, the world No. 1 and the golf courses should be fine with us.

“With the 20 to 30 mph wind you’d expect this time of year and potentially a little rain too, cooler in the morning, all of these things will suit us more than they will suit America.”

Harrington gloated over Europe’s Solheim Cup victory over the United States in Ohio earlier this month, where advice on how to deal with the American crowd was one of the main things McGinley said to Leona Maguire on their pre-tournament call.

“The crowd problem is not going to help us,” he admitted. “But there are lessons to be learned from what the girls did.

“They didn’t incite the crowd in any way. This is something I learned under Langer. This is Padraig’s opportunity, and I can’t wait to see how he fares.

Another nice finish from Tvesa Malik at the French Open Sun, 19 Sep 2021 13:14:37 +0000

Tvesa Malik recorded another superb result, finishing T-12 with a final round of 1-under-70 at the Lacoste Ladies Open de France 2021. She finished with rounds of 69-70-70 for 4 under 208 while Céline Boutier became champion after taking the victory in the most spectacular way at the Golf Club du Médoc.

Tvesa, who knocked on the doors of a first triumph and finished second at the Gant Ladies Open in July. Last week she was T-11 at the Swiss Ladies Open and this season she had three Top-10s.

The Hero backed golfer had three birdies in the eighth through 10th and two bogeys in the fourth and 12th. After a week’s break, Tvesa will be back for the Estrella Damm championship in Spain.

Two-time Solheim Cup winner Boutier kept her cool on a frenzied final day in Bordeaux, before making a fantastic birdie putt on the last one to clinch victory over Scottish Kylie Henry.

The two players went neck and neck for much of Saturday’s final, heads changing hands throughout the day. Both were ten cents when they tied for 18th.

Henry ran out of his second shot on the last hole, but Boutier hit the green in half, before pitching a 20-foot putt with his third stroke to send the locals celebrating.

It was a special moment for Boutier, who made her first professional appearance at the tournament in 2016 – before finishing second behind Nelly Korda in 2019 – and she was thrilled to clinch the victory in front of her home crowd.

Washington rally in support of rioters on January 6 falls short of expectations | Attack on the US Capitol Sat, 18 Sep 2021 21:24:00 +0000

Any passing American could have been forgiven for thinking he had stumbled upon one of the great human rights struggles of our time.

Speakers managed to mention Martin Luther King, Gandhi, and the Nazi persecution of the Jewish people. They spoke of prisoners held in conditions with echoes of Soviet gulags.

Then there was the sheer injustice of the roundups. Innocent people taken away by the secret police for daring to criticize the government.

Except that it was a demonstration to demand the release of hundreds of people arrested for their part in the capture of the United States Capitol on January 6, with the aim of preventing Congress from certifying the victory of Joe Biden in the presidential election of 2020.

As the Republican Party and Donald Trump’s most ardent supporters struggle to rewrite the narrative of the attempted coup, supporters of those arrested in the aftermath have sought to transform it from a political question into a human rights question with the “Justice for J6” rally near the Capitol on Saturday.

In protest, it was a flop.

The turnout was at best half of the 700 expected by organizers, which in itself was far lower than the thousands who stormed Congress in January. Event organizer Matt Braynard, a former Trump campaigner, blamed the low turnout on government bullying and the scare press.

“For those who have moved, I congratulate you on your courage,” he said.

This set a broad tone for a rally that sought to portray those arrested as brave Americans defending their democratic right to protest. No mention was made of the role Trump played on January 6 when he urged his supporters to “fight like hell” to defend his claim to winning the election.

About 650 people were charged with riot-related offenses and nearly 60 pleaded guilty, mostly to relatively minor crimes, including obstructing official proceedings and illegal demonstrations on Capitol Hill. Some are being held without bail.

Four people died in the riot, including a woman shot dead by a police officer as she tried to climb onto the floor of the house. Brian Sicknick, a Capitol policeman attacked by protesters, died the next day. Other officers were beaten.

Braynard insisted he did not have a truck with those arrested for violence against police.

“That is not the goal of this rally,” he said. “It’s not about the people who were violent.

Instead, he attacked a “two-tier justice system” that allowed liberals like Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and environmentalists to protest inside Capitol Hill by occupying Nancy Pelosi’s office, but gathered a few hundred people just trying to get the government to hear their complaint about the election count.

“This is a disparate treatment of non-violent people,” he said.

Braynard deplored the violence of the system against demonstrators who “see their lives destroyed”. It was time, he said, for good men and women to cry out, “Let them go.”

Speakers spoke of family members arrested by the FBI who were now “political detainees” and “prisoners of conscience”.

A woman who identified herself as the girlfriend of Jonathan Mellis, a man charged with crimes including assault, said he was being held in solitary confinement. She read a letter in which he said, “It reminds me of how the Jews were treated by the Nazis. “

The organizers of the rally, Look Ahead America, told those in attendance not to wear paraphernalia to support Trump or political groups, in order to keep the focus on advocating for human rights.

Braynard spotted a man who identified himself as Adam from Florida holding an American flag with the Roman numeral III in the corner. This, Braynard said, was a symbol for a far-right militia, the three percent.

“It’s an outside group and it makes the optics look bad,” he said, telling Adam to put the flag away. “Anyone who does not agree to take it down, we have to assume it is an infiltrator. “

Adam professed ignorance of the association – but raised the flag.

Anders Bruce, a 30-year-old organizer of Look Ahead America, said he was there to seek justice for “prisoners of conscience” subjected to political persecution.

But who was responsible for this persecution when the prosecution began under the Trump administration?

“It shows that this is a problem with the government of the two political parties,” he said.

Others came to protest against the demonstrators.

Hughes, a former postman, was jailed for four months for landing a gyrocopter in front of the Capitol in 2015, seeking to deliver letters to members of Congress professing objections to corporate money corrupting US politics.

“I knew there would be consequences. I am a criminal, I lost my job and I don’t regret anything I did, ”he said. “Now those people who broke the law on January 6 must accept the consequences.”

Was he worried about his safety in the midst of an unwelcoming crowd?

“Yes, but I feel more strongly that we must adhere to democracy. The loser of the election is supposed to accept the results.

In the end, no one disturbed Hughes or any of the other dissidents scattered in the crowd.

Trump was notable for his absence. The ex-president had gone to golf in New Jersey, but Trump’s usual hats and t-shirts were also missing. The only flag bearing his name was hoisted at the edge of the rally by a Black Lives Matter protester. “Fuck Donald Trump,” he said.

An African-American man selling Trump hats on the edge of the rally was not doing much business. When asked if he was sympathetic to the former president, he smiled.

“It’s money,” he said.
