"...Coal mining is down to just 75,900 U.S. jobs, from 175,000 in 1985 and about 80,000 during 2009, when President Barack Obama took office, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. But at current rates, the U.S. economy would replace those jobs in a week if they all disappeared tomorrow. In Kentucky, where Sen. GOP Leader Mitch McConnell used the administration's "war on coal" as a rallying point in this year's election, the 11,000 coal-mining jobs equal the number created by the state's economy in October and represent less than 0.6 percent of Kentucky jobs...".
from a CNBC article-interview in January '15.
Lynne and Mas, woohoo!
Hope some salty caramello and cherry are being frozen up.

Makes a great deal of sense/cents.
Thank you John and the other committee members.
Thanks Kent, Mark (and the others at USFS and CSFS) for trying to juggle opposing special interests for the better benefit for us all. As always, this forum attracts a tough crowd. Thanks.
So admirable that Routt Co. students moral view extends beyond our rocky mtn bubble.
So arduous to concentrate on just a few when there are so many worthwhile causes in and outside of our borders.
Proudly, we're in (article noted web site) Hayden Tigers!

AND (I have it on good information) that later this spring, Lynne and Mas will reopen Ciao Gelato on Lincoln between 9th and 10th!
Curtis, extremely well stated.
It seems absurd that any action towards better securing residential trash from the bears has yet to be adopted (like in so many other Colorado resort towns). To retrofit trash bins may cost as little as 20 bucks but yet that seems to be too large of a hurdle for our city council (other than for Sonja).
We purchased a bear proof container from Steve Weinland that has thwarted a few morning assaults and we recently purchased some securing covers for our open, 18 gallon, Aces High recycle bins (Otto industries, outlet store, for ~$4 each, not including the shipping). It will aid to keep the magpies, crows, dogs and wind from our recyclables being strewn about. (Perhaps Steve @ Aces High may be willing buy the covers in bulk and sell them to his customers for a small profit).
Joel, beautifully written...filled in so many gaps.
We gently tap his shoulder with a gloved hand the first trip up storm chair (if we can reach it, this season has been more at eye level-0.75 wire winter) each season to honor him, his family and their SS legacy. thanks.
Linda and Dave McIrvin
