This talk was excellent! Too bad it was sold out and many citizens (and city council members) missed it. Lucky for us, Wes and Phil will be back for another talk, Jan 31, 6:30 p.m. Penrose Main Library, Carnegie Room. You don't want to miss this!
"There's no doubt the Olympic Museum will be breathtaking. But what else will complete the surrounding area? " This article really misses the elephant in the room. The wonderful new museum's direct neighbor will be the eyesore Drake coal power plant. Maybe drawing more attention to this dinosaur will finally convince CSU to shut it down.
"In exchange, the city was granted a cut of the action on future sales." Except there have been no other sales. Anywhere. Ever. A cut of Zero is still ZERO.
Wow, John, you're really missing the point here. We've got a "citizen owned" utility who chose to commission an air quality study, paid for by these citizen owners, yet they won't share the results of the study with the citizen owners who breathe the air! Where is the transparency?! Let's not fool ourselves. If the air quality study had come back with favorable results, CSU would be crowing about the excellence of our air and patting themselves on the back. Instead we have a complete refusal to share the data and ludicrous sanctions against the very person who is trying to bring out the truth. We all know what that means. THE AIR STUDY RESULTS ARE NOT GOOD! So not only is CSU behaving badly, but the Utilities Board has also been utterly silent. Here are elected officials who should stand up for their constituents but instead they've drunk the Kool-Aid and are total CSU puppets. It's really quite shameful and embarrassing. People ... elections are just around the corner!!!
Sure, the city is working on meeting the new clean-air standards now, but the whole point is that they've been polluting out of control for decades and lying to cover it up.
Thank you Richard !!
War on Hikers? They built a huge lot on the E. end of town with a free shuttle right to the trailhead! How is that a war on hikers? They're just trying to protect the Ruxton residents' quality of life.
Public Trust is now ZERO! This deal stinks. Write to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell them NO on this deal.
