Also featured in this issue is on-going coverage by the Magazine of the American Landowner of the U.S. Army’s huge land grab in Southern Colorado.

MANITOU SPRINGS, Colo., Jan. 16 /PRNewswire/ – WANT TO GUESS? - For the second year in a row media pioneer Ted Turner tops The “Land Report 100″ list. In addition to gracing the cover, The Land Report features an exclusive excerpt from Turner’s recently published memoir, Call Me Ted, where he describes his love affair with land that began when he was a young boy. Today his dozens of properties include some of the largest ranches in Montana and New Mexico. Other notable landowners range from coast to coast, including the King Ranch Heirs at No. 6, whose 825,000-acre cattle kingdom dates back to an original purchase in 1853; Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos at No. 23, who uses his West Texas ranches to launch rockets; and California’s Hearst Family at No. 54, with 153,000 acres.

GROUND WARFARE – The folks in Southern Colorado are fighting mad at Uncle Sam — and with good reason. The Department of Defense established the Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site by using eminent domain to seize hundreds of thousands of acres of private property. The military promised that no additional lands would be taken and no live-fire exercises would occur. Wrong in both instances. Pinon Canyon is now hostile territory as ranchers and farmers fight to keep their property.

VISTAS – Profiles some of the most spectacular properties for sale on the market today, including the Bugling Elk Estate in Sanders County, Montana and the beyond belief 250,000-acre Bell Ranch in San Miguel County, NM — yours for a measly $100 million.

Embracing “new media” as well as traditional print, The Land Report outreach includes a concentrated online presence, regular video webcasts, as well as custom content for strategic partners. Featured in the Wall Street Journal, Investor’s Business Daily, and on Fox Business, The Land Report is the premiere source of information on land issues. The continuing goal is to inform, educate, and update existing landowners, while at the same time encouraging and inspiring prospective landowners.
