Cost will never go down

People in the oil and gas industry have been touting domestic production of oil and gas as some kind of panacea for America’s energy problems.

Well, domestic production is at an all-time high and the cost of gas and oil has not dropped a cent.

Here’s some news for you: The cost will never go down because of domestic oil and gas, while the environment will be ravished.

Never underestimate the greed and immorality of people in the oil and gas industry; any savings from domestic oil and gas will end up in their greedy little hands.

Look at other connections

We should be looking at other ways to connect the roads we have.Why not connect Rennie School Road to Cass Road?

This would move the traffic south and give another way for traffic to come into the heart of the town. We would need to put up a light at Rennie and U.S. 31 south. But this is better than the traffic light at Hartman and 31 South. We may not need the bridge from Cass to Keystone.
