The Department of Energy unveiled a complex plan Friday to return 84,000 acres of land to the Ute Tribe and start the cleanup of a notorious uranium mine in Utah whose radioactive waste has been polluting the Colorado River for a decade. The deal, announced by Energy Secretary Bill Richardson at Moab, Utah, constitutes the largest-ever voluntary return of public land to Native Americans in the lower 48 states.

Ute hunters: An article in Monday's Section A about the Southern Ute Indians exercising their right to hunt on public land in Colorado under an 1874 treaty said that the Utes would receive 5% of the state's licenses for hunting rare game such as bighorn sheep and moose. In fact, the state has no licensing authority over the tribe. The Utes will issue their own rare-game licenses in a number that equals 5% of the state's licenses for the area.

Summer travelers who love the water don't just gravitate to hotel swimming pools and the beach. Many also visit hot mineral springs at spas and resorts, where business booms in summer despite the heat. Those who visit the springs are hoping to relax, reduce stress and find other benefits. The dissolved solids in hot springs can include sulfur, calcium bicarbonate, sodium bicarbonate and other substances, each credited with particular health benefits.

Holding back time is a big job. But out here in the high mountain desert, where rattlesnakes and sagebrush outnumber people, it is a task Dean Coombs shoulders each week with a certain glee. Tuesday is press day at the Saguache Crescent, now in its 134th year. Coombs is the disheveled guy hunkered down amid the dust and dilapidation of the newspaper's office, hunting and pecking at the keyboard of the same Linotype machine his grandparents used when Warren G. Harding was in the White House.

The Oct. 16 excursion, led by photographer Bruce Hukco and research archeologist Scott Ortman, will travel from Cortez, Colo., to Utah, where the group will visit Canyonlands National Park, Beef Basin, Moab and Arches National Park. "Even if people are familiar with the area, they'll get a whole new look at it," said Theresa Titone of the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center.

Most of what passes for public virtue in water politics is private vice. Nowhere is this more true than in headwaters states like Colorado. The problem with water is not so much scarcity as fraud, subsidy and misallocation. The major contemporary battlefield over such issues is southern Colorado, home of the last of the great pork-barrel boondoggles, the Animas-La Plata Project (ALP). This is a dam, first proposed in 1904 and authorized (but not fully funded) in 1968.

For an all-too-short time in late September and early October the high mountain slopes and valleys of Colorado are ablaze with gold and copper and burnt orange. The aspen trees are performing their simple miracle of changing color. It is an exultant time for the eyes, a festival for the camera lens. You can walk among the aspens and watch the sunlight suffuse the leaves with a golden aura.

This town supplied the uranium that produced the bombs that ended World War II and fueled the Cold War nuclear arsenal. But the three generations that grew up here remember it only as a great place to live. Soon, bulldozers will scrape the former community of 1,000 off the face of the Earth. Road maps no longer show it. ZIP code 81436 has been reassigned. Sure, kids used to play in the radioactive tailings from the uranium mines at the remote sandstone-rimmed spot on the San Miguel River.

In skiing, as in marriage, spousal roles are defined, distinct -- and often at odds. He thinks "whiteout" is code for no one on the slopes and plenty of fresh powder. She views a blizzard as a good reason to stay inside and read a book. He thinks equipment should be purchased solely for function. She bought her last three sets of skis (and several rounds of boots and helmets) because she liked the color. He maintains that if you've found a good resort, a place you know so well you could shoot the chutes in your sleep, why wouldn't you go back there forever?

If you could ignore the grime on the collar of his ruffled shirt, Pappy Jack's middleweight dressed like Sugar Ray Robinson, which wasn't something you saw every day in the Salt Lake City I remember. It was even whiter than it is now, and Pappy Jack's middleweight enhanced his exotic image with long cars and a missing thumb, the one he lost in a prison brawl.
