True but If its not a coal mine or power plant they are not interested.
It sure is handy to have extra water to fall back on huh? How about letting us build more dams because things will not be getting better, ok environmental wackos?
Well Joe Bird, the YVEA is mandated by state law to have a percentage of their power from renewable energy by 2020. They are just doing what they have to to comply with the law. You don't have to love it,you don't have to like it, heck you can down right hate it but as an adult and as a member of our local government I would hope you put on your big boy pants and step up to the plate and assist one of our own in dealing with a problem they are facing. Do you throw a fit at work and get your way all the time? Yep, me neither so lets come together and face this because its not going away. Have to agree with other posters. Eyesore argument is weak,three out of four ways into town are not easy on the eyes and we almost screwed up the fourth by building a fire training tower over it.
Ok that makes sense as to why all the no votes. How about no term limits for all the county positions like assessor, clerk and recorder,sheriff,coroner but keep the county commissioners term limited. Heck with the characters we have been getting lately maybe limit those guys to one term.
So are you suggesting they start following OSHA regulations?
You are right about that cory5611. The store in Debque would be the closest to a truck stop. Always wondered why the gopher didnt upgrade their place.
Ok and replace them with what? We have ramped up production of domestic oil and the price of gas has gone up. What say you to that Mc cain? Remember drill baby drill was supposed to bring down the price...ha!! If McPailin were running things we would have troops in Egypt,Libya and Syria by now and would pay even less attention to whats going on in this country and the lives of our own people than the clown we have now. We need leadership that puts Americans first. Its frustrating to watch. Both sides are inept.
I totally agree with David Moore, a smaller venue would be more appropriate. Though "the Red Rocks of the western slope" would be something to see. Kind of like the bridge to nowhere in Alaska. The community leaders have always had an unrealistic expectation or vision for this town. I am always for improving the appearance and quality of life in our town but like to keep things real and in perspective. We will never be Steamboat Springs or Aspen. Remember back in the day when the wave pool was going to bring in droves of tourists and we would be awash in cash? I am starting to think that the Recreation Center would be a better bang for our buck.
While it is your right to defend the coal industry the reality is the YVEA is mandated by law to generate a set amount of their electricity by renewable means by 2020. While I dont agree that companies should be told how to operate this is the direction our once great country is headed. We must look to the future and live in the present not live in the past. I know solar and wind is not as cost effective as coal but you will have to do it to meet the mandates for renewable energy. To ignore that reality and just spend your time going after the greenies if you are elected will change nothing and only put at risk the future of the YVEA
So you are saying that the only solution to the failed policies and practices of the educational system we have in place today is to feed the beast more money and all will be well? I believe every child deserves better than the utter garbage that passes for public education today. I refuse to just throw more money at the problem just so I can sleep better at night and say that I at least did something even though it accomplished absolutely nothing. I would be more than willing to give you your money under one condition. When test scores do not improve we sit down and address the real problem and fix it.
