I know this is a little off topic but can someone please explain why area coal mines can not sell their coal to power plants besides those on the front range?

I assume its a cost of transportation issue but there does not seem to be a lack of demand for coal? Looking for facts not opinions, thanks

Harlan, This is a pretty ignorant statement.

"Craig does not have the population to attract top of the line doctors. These doctors choose other areas because they can better attempt to see more patients, increase their wages, and pay back their medical school loans."

What do you base this on? Do you know what medical schools the doctors in this community went to? The quality of their respective residency programs ect.

Do you think you have better care when your doctor is trying to see more patients? Wages for most doctors are actually higher at hospitals in rural areas than metropolitian areas (think supply and demand). Surprise some doctors want to live in rural communities.

Gets your facts straight before you go out and smear hard working people that are doing a great service to this community.

Could someone please explain why area coal can not be sold to other customers besides front range power plants? I assume its a cost of transport issue or is it lack of demand?

I would question your statistics but I am sure you would question mine.

You just can't convince some people that the moon is not made out of cheese and the world is not flat. Enjoy

Heres some facts for you AD, Ill let you connect your own dots

Arizona faces a budget deficit of more than $3 billion dollars

Arizona's housing market is one of the worst in the country with most homes worth half of what people paid for them.

The total economic output attributable (very likely underestimated) to Arizona's immigrant workers: $44 Billion which sustained approximately 400,000 full-time jobs

If all the illegal immigrants were removed from Arizona the state would lose 26.4 billion in economic activity, 11.7 billion in gross state product, and approximately 140,324 jobs, even accounting for adequate market adjustment time.

Putting economic contributions of this magnitude at risk during a time of recession would not serve Arizona well.

This bill=Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale=Detroit
