The body of Charles Darrell Thomas, age 69, of Riverton, Utah, was located in the Flaming Gorge Reservoir on Saturday, September 20, 2014. The Department of Public Safety dive team was assisting Daggett County Sheriff’s Office using their side scan sonar to search the area where the boat was believed to have capsized. At approximately 5:40 p.m. they found what appeared to be the victim’s body with the side scan sonar. Daggett County contacted Summit County Search & Rescue for assistance with their Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV), a device that allows crews to operate from the surface a remote camera system with a retrieval device. Summit County was able to confirm the location of the boat and the body with the ROV. Daggett County Sheriff’s Office, with the help of Summit County S&R, recovered the body at 11:15 p.m., and Mr. Thomas was positively identified at 11:45 p.m.
Several years ago, the Six-County Infrastructure Coalition, consisting of Carbon, Daggett, Duchesne, Emery, Uintah and San Juan counties, applied to the Utah Department of Transportation for permission to build a railroad in the Uintah Basin.
Uintah and Carbon volleyball appeared to be right about at the same talent level Thursday night and it looked that way after two games split between the two. In the decisive third game, however, it was Uintah grabbing the momentum behind their home crowd to secure the next two games for the 3-1 win.
For the most part, roadway projects are completed by the Uintah Transportation Special Service with little fanfare. But a recent misapplication of an asphalt preservative in the Quailbrook Subdivision brought headaches for residents and board members alike.
Uintah girls' tennis is becoming very familiar with the rival Union tennis team as they have taken each other up for a handful of matches so far in the season to get in extra work and prepare for the regular season.
