A Kentucky man has pleaded guilty to killing a woman whose remains were found six months after she disappeared, according to court records. Spurlock was last seen in January 2019 leaving a Lexington bar with Sparks and two other men. A tip about a foul odor led authorities to search property connected to Sparks’ family in Garrard County, where they discovered Spurlock’s naked remains buried in a shallow grave and wrapped in a rug and garbage bags, with her feet bound.

The pine is a “poster child” for the conservation of forest species threatened by disease and climate changeDenver, CO, Dec. 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposed that the whitebark pine should be listed as a threatened species, making it the most widespread tree to be listed under the Endangered Species Act.Whitebark pines are native to high-elevation forests across the western United States and Canada. Despite their large range, whitebarks are rapidly vanishing due to white pine blister rust fungus, an introduced disease that has wiped out up to 90% of the pines in many northern forests. At the same time, climate change is exacerbating droughts, wildfires and bark beetle outbreaks, which weaken and kill whitebarks, and alter their range. Whitebark pines are a keystone species, creating critical plant and wildlife habitat on otherwise barren mountain slopes. Their fat-rich seeds are a crucial component of many animals’ diets, including grizzly bears. The pines’ umbrella-like growth shades snow and creates natural snow banks, helping to ensure a steady release of water in the spring.The Whitebark Pine Ecosystem Foundation and American Forests welcomed the decision. Since 2016, the two nonprofits have collaborated with the U.S. Forest Service on the National Whitebark Pine Restoration Plan, a cooperative partnership among federal agencies and nongovernmental organizations to plan, fund and implement large-scale restoration of the whitebark pine. “This is a watershed proposed listing given the immense size of the species’ range, and the severity and complexity of its threats. Whitebark pine is the poster child for the extreme harms of exotic disease and climate change. Luckily, we have the tools and capability to make whitebark populations more resilient. The National Whitebark Pine Restoration Plan, which will implement these restoration tools, offers a new model for forest restoration and management,” says Dr. Diana F. Tomback, the Whitebark Pine Ecosystem Foundation’s policy & outreach coordinator, and a professor of integrated biology at the University of Colorado Denver.“Critical to the species’ survival is finding, growing and planting whitebark pines that are resistant to blister rust fungus. Disease-screening programs have shown tremendous promise. American Forests has already helped to plant 500,000 disease-resistant whitebark seedlings. The “threatened” listing brings much need attention and resources to the restoration effort,” says Eric Sprague, American Forests’ vice president of forest restoration.Photos of the whitebark pine are available here.Whitebark Pine Ecosystem Foundation (WPEF) is a science-based nonprofit that promotes conservation of whitebark pine by supporting restoration, research, education and outreach.American Forests is the nation’s oldest conservation nonprofit, founded in 1875. It focuses on climate-informed forest protection and restoration across North America. CONTACT: Allison Guy American Forests 202-370-4509 email@example.com
