FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Casper Star Tribune:A Virginia businessman will be the newest coal player in Wyoming after being the sole bidder for a bankrupt firm’s coal mine in Lincoln County, according to documents filed in bankruptcy court in southern Texas on Tuesday.Westmoreland Coal Company’s Kemmerer mine will be sold to former health care executive Tom Clarke’s new company, Western Coal Acquisitions Partners LLC, for $7.5 million in cash at closing, a $112.5 million senior secured promissory note and a $95 million junior secured promissory note, according to a copy of the asset purchase agreement filed Tuesday in the bankruptcy court in Houston.Clarke’s firm will also assume the Kemmerer coal mine’s liabilities, minus contested costs of continuing health care benefits for retirees and their dependents. A union contract between Kemmerer miners and the coal company is also voided in the sale.Westmoreland filed for bankruptcy in October, citing about $1 billion in debt and a troubled coal market. The decision left the fate of the 300-employee Kemmerer coal mine in limbo. Prior to the bankruptcy filing, the company had informed the union representing Kemmerer miners that it intended to cut certain health care obligations to retirees and retiree dependents. The United Mine Workers of America had fought that decision, but the bankruptcy court ruled in favor of Westmoreland’s plea Friday to shave those liabilities. The court also ruled Friday that Westmoreland could abandon the union contract.Clarke, Kemmerer’s newest owner, said in a recent interview with the Star-Tribune that the obligations to retirees were too costly. He said the majority of the former contract would be retained. Another of Clarke’s companies, Merida Natural Resources, is a guarantor for the Kemmerer acquisition. Clarke is also acting as a personal guarantor, according to court documents.Clarke is a relatively new coal player. He was first successful as a businessman in the health industry as an owner of nursing homes. He has since dabbled in other industries and projects from hotels to iron ore. Clarke got into the coal business by buying Patriot Coal’s Appalachian assets during its bankruptcy in 2015.More: Virginia businessman’s sole bid wins Kemmerer mine, omits retiree benefits as expected It’s official: Bankrupt Westmoreland’s Kemmerer mine sold, retiree benefits eliminated

4 4. Is Chelsea hero Petr Cech one of the ready-made stars Brendan Rodgers will sign in January? Now click the arrow above to see a midfield tank Liverpool should pursue! – Thibaut Courtois fine form for the Premier League pacesetters sees the Czech shot-stopper, 32, warming the bench for Jose Mourinhos side. Cech wont want his career to end with a whimper though and a deal could be agreed for him to swap clubs, especially considering Rodgers lack of faith in Simon Mignolet. A fee of £7million has recently been mooted but Arsenal are also interested as Wojciech Szczesnys form dips. 4 4 4 3. Arsenal target Morgan Schneiderlin can shore up midfield for the Reds… now click the arrow to see which striker in the prime of his career could bolster the Reds’ frontline! – Arsenal missed out on signing the France international last summer as Southamptons exodus saw them cling desperately to one of their last remaining star names. It worked out well for the Saints but as Schneiderlin continues to impress its only a matter of time before he moves on. Liverpool fans may be concerned about the possibility of signing another player from Southampton for big money, but his work in front of a back four is something the Reds often poor defending would surely benefit from. Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is targeting players who are the finished article in January.After seeing captain Steven Gerrard announce his intention to leave Anfield at the end of the season, the Northern Irishman wants to bring in established stars rather than continue with the club’s model of snapping up young talents from across Europe.He said: “A large part of our squad is young players but there’s no doubt that if you want to take steps forward, you need to sign ready-made players.“The model at the football club is clear in that the owners want to bring in young players in order to develop and create them into world class players.“Of course, that can be a longer and more difficult process. It is certainly something I know the owners look at. They know that not every player can be a developer.“If you’re going to keep progressing, you also need those ready-made players.”So who should Rodgers be looking to sign this transfer window? Click the arrows above to find out… 2. Andre-Pierre Gignac could be the answer to Rodgers’ striker woes – France international Andre-Pierre Gignac, 29, has been a regular goalscorer in France and only failed to hit double figures in one season out of the last seven. A tally of 12 strikes so far this campaign (up to 6 January 2015) have seen several sides register interest, especially as his contract runs out at the end of the campaign. If they fail to land him they could also cast their eyes towards Bayer Leverkusen striker Stefan Kiessling or Sevilla and Colombia star Carlos Bacca. 1. Is Nicolas N’Koulou the stopper who can plug Liverpool’s leaky defence? – If Rodgers is looking to tighten up at the back they could do worse than look towards Cameroon international NKoulou. The 24-year-old already has 51 caps for his country and has played more than 100 times for Marseille in three years and could be available for £6million in January. Alternatively, he could also look at fellow Ligue 1 star Loic Perrin, who has excelled with Saint Etienne.
