Salazar Taking Stewardship Seriously 3.5.2009 NewWest.Net Travel & Outdoors
To hear the public relations arm of the oil and gas industry describe it, Ken Salazar’s first few months on the job as Secretary of the Interior have been a disaster. But if you ask the country’s sportsmen and women, you’ll find they emphatically disagree. Since his confirmation by Congress in January, Salazar has restored some common sense and responsibility to the process by which America’s public lands are loaned to industry for oil and gas extraction. Hunters and anglers in states that hold the majority of BLM and Forest Service lands are applauding the more balanced approach taken by Salazar’s Department of the Interior in considering the detrimental effects irresponsible development can have on fish and game habitat.

Economy Hits Independent Contractors on Two Fronts 11.3.2009 NewWest.Net Development
At a subdivision northwest of Kalispell, local Habitat for Humanity staff and volunteers are busy building a duplex. Nearly every day they’re working, someone walks onto the site to ask for a job. “They see building activity so they’re literally stopping to ask if we have a bid out,” Patti Gregerson, executive director of Kalispell’s Habitat for Humanity branch, said.

Now as an eight year old boy that made as much sense as a talking rabbit.
