Sage_Sam 3 years, 10 months ago on Craig reacts to Obama's recent announcement on climate change action plan

I have no idea what John Kinkaid is using as his factual basis for his belief that "temperatures have stopped rising."

Worldwide 2001-2010 was the warmest decade since thermometer-based observation have begun and since 1970, the United States is warming at a higher rate that the rest of the world. According to NASA, 12 of the warmest years on record have occurred in the past 15 years.

Those are facts---not opinions---facts. By ignoring facts and refusing to address the issue at hand, all that Mr. Kincaid and other who share his beliefs are doing is passing the buck onto their kids and grandkids. They're already leaving the legacy of giant debt from social security and Medicare, now they want to leave future where little investment has been made into new energy sources and a West that has less water, more people and no plan for the future.

Thanks for being so "conservative."


Sage_Sam 4 years, 8 months ago on Moffat County residents asked to determine Luttrell Barn’s future

Here's a question. In communities like Rifle, Rangely, Vernal, Pinedale, etc oil and gas companies have poured money in community development efforts in the forms of community centers, recreation centers, community colleges, etc.

Why aren't we asking Questar, Quicksilver, Shell, etc to pony up and help support this community? The mines and power plant have done this repeatedly, but I don't know of an instance where and oil and gas operator has stepped up in Moffat County and said "Hey, don't worry, we'll pay for it because we're a good neighbor and we want to help."

Seems like this could be a solution in paying for repairs to the Luttrell Barn as well as other community development projects. The oil and gas companies get good PR and we finally get something from them as well.


Sage_Sam 4 years, 11 months ago on Mitt Romney today in Craig: Obama 'out of excuses'

My guess was around 800 or so, but I suppose it could have been more. I was just wondering if that was the estimate from the police or the campaign. I expect a campaign to inflate figures some, since that's their job.

However, I'm just basing it on what I've experienced at crowded concerts.

Where is the 2000 people estimate coming from? Didn't look like there was anywhere near that many people there.


Sage_Sam 4 years, 11 months ago on Moffat County roads scheduled for June improvements

So why exactly are our tax dollars being spent to repair and re-pave 7 miles of County Road 4 east of Powderwash?

If memory serves, there is only one ranch in that area. Why isn't Questar or Wexpro paying to repair the roads they have damaged?

Seems if our tax dollars would be better spent benefiting the residents of the county, not corporations that just use the resources.
