The Disappearance of the West's Frontier 28.7.2009 NewWest.Net All Headlines
July, 2009 marks the 40th anniversary of another major milestone in America's quest to push boundaries and explore new frontiers -- the Apollo moon landing.

Absolutely not. I mean, around the world projects of this size get done every day,” he says. Even around the arid West, a 550 mile water pipeline is not ...
