- The Washington Times

Winter in Utah means skiing. And after a somewhat disappointing snowfall in the 2014-15 season, 2015-16 has thus far been off to a tremendous start thanks to ample El Nino-facilitated precipitation that has made the Rocky Mountains a paradise for the winter outdoors types.

Plagued by delays, California high-speed rail back in court

- Associated Press

California voters embraced the idea of building the nation's first real high-speed rail system, which promised to whisk travelers from San Francisco to Los Angeles in under three hours, a trip that can take six hours or more by car.
