Re: “Power struggle

Maybe the reporter could have given an estimate of the annual property taxes that will be paid to the county by the project, the monthly payout to landowners for each windmill and the use taxes that will go to the county from the construction of the project. All that needs to be considered. Then there is the coal that won't be burned and won't poison people.

Re: “Trapped in the dying mall

How are things at the Citadel? Haven't been in there in decades. Used to deliver their mail in '72 when I was a relief carrier out of Station A Post Office.

Re: “Pueblo fights poverty and power

Those folks who actually read the WP article would have learned: "The overall problem: Since utility regulators authorize Black Hills to recover an 8.53 percent rate of return, it has every incentive to build excess capacity and pass the construction charges on to customers."
"In any case, Black Hills’ profit is on the rise, even as energy use has remained flat; its parent company’s earnings per share increased by 24 percent over last year in the first quarter of 2014."
"“Their shareholders don’t care.Their interest is return on investment, that’s how this works,”"
"But it’s not just the high rates, she says: It’s the fees Black Hills charges for initial deposits, late payments and reconnecting once the power’s been shut off.
“They owe $8.29. And a $50 reconnect, a $219 deposit, and now they owe $277.21. They can’t get ahead.”

Re: “Have your trees checked, state says

Does that mean that foresters from the USDA will inspect trees at no charge?
