The ground-dwelling sage grouse has lengthy, pointed tail feathers and is known for the male's elaborate courtship display in which air sacs in the neck are inflated to make a popping sound.The proposed changes, the result of a 60-day review of the plan by Zinke's agency, could give states wiggle room in areas such as setting population goals for sage grouse and drawing boundaries of recognized sage grouse habitat.Advocacy groups such as The Wilderness Society and National Wildlife Federation said the proposal was a backdoor attempt to allow unfettered oil and gas development that ignored previous scientific studies showing that drilling too close to sage grouse breeding areas would harm the birds.The birds inhabit parts of 11 states including large swaths of Wyoming, Utah, Idaho and Nevada — big ranching states that include areas with vast wind energy and gas drilling potential.Areas where sage grouse habitat and gas drilling overlap include the upper Green River Basin of western Wyoming, home of some of the biggest onshore natural gas fields in the U.S.Jonah Energy LLC, recognizes the existence of sage grouse winter range in the southern part of its proposed gas field about 200 miles (321.85 kilometers) northeast of Salt Lake City, said Paul Ulrich, government affairs director at the Denver-based petroleum company.

For many Bay Area music lovers, San Francisco’s Stern Grove Festival has served as Sunday Mass — at least 10 weeks out of the year. Well, this Sunday, Mavis Staples is ready to take ’em to church for one last time this summer. The great soul singer, who got her start in gospel and rose to fame with hits such as “I’ll Take You There” and “Respect Yourself,” is scheduled to close out the 80th season of the free outdoor festival on Sunday, Aug. 27. But Staples won’t stop there. The 78-year-old Grammy winner, who belted it out at BottleRock Napa in May, is scheduled to perform at the Strawberry Music Festival in Tuolumne on Sept. 1 and in Petaluma on Sept. 11 for this year’s Live at Lagunitas series.
