A study of Sulphur’s water needs dating back to 2011 culminated with a presentation last week of a Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) Final Report titled “Sulphur Pipeline Regional Rural Water Supply Project.” Sulphur stakeholders, including some who are new to city government, heard of a possibility that Sulphur could experience water shortages by 2030, and run out of water by about 2035. The distasteful prospect was brought up by a BOR speaker at a “stakeholders’ meeting” at the Artesian Hotel Wednesday, Feb. 26.

The Yukon Championship was held on February 22 with over 300 divisions including sport MMA, grapping, with and without GI. Other events indicated east and west coast sparring, continue sparring, Forms, traditional and non-traditional weapons kata and musical katas.
