Potential to increase oil production from EOR (CO2 Flooding) could be in the 10,000 barrels/ day to 20,000 barrels/day range with total recoverable oil from these fields being approximately 100 million barrels.

Independent reports commissioned by Rancher Energy indicate that the fields have the potential to increase recoverable oil by up to 70 million bar-

Current oil production of approximately 190 barrels per day across three fields.

The three fields purchased from Rancher Energy are “Big Muddy”, “South Glenrock B” and “South Cole Creek”. The fields, located 15 miles east of Casper, Wyoming, have combined production of 146.6 million barrels of oil to date from an estimated Original Oil in Place (OOIP) of 466.6 million barrels of oil.

Linc Energy has acquired 27,856 acres of producing oil fields in the Powder River Basin in Wyoming, USA from Rancher Energy Corp.

The three oil fields have been acquired from Rancher Energy Corp., a Nevada corporation currently in Chapter 11 bankruptcy, for a total consideration of US$20 million. Prior to entering Chapter 11 bankruptcy, Rancher Energy Corp. had acquired the three fields for a total consideration of approximately US$70 million. The Linc acquisition of the Rancher Energy assets was approved by the United States Bankruptcy Court on February 24, 2011.

Uranium One Not Affected by Japan At This Time Spokesperson for Uranium One Donna Wichers stated today that although events like those of which took place in Japan over three weeks ago, could affect the production of Uranium here in the Cowboy State, it is not likely to happen at this time. Uranium is the fuel that powers Nuclear Reactors, and an event like what hap-

pened in Japan could temporarily decrease the price of Uranium which could impact the economics of new uranium projects and perhaps delay those projects until the economics recover. "We have not changed our plans for future uranium production in Converse County, and in fact we will probably increase current production in Johnson and Campbell Counties, Wyo-

ming." Stated Wichers. Wichers also stated that the proposed Ludeman project (a new location that will produce Uranium) located in Converse County, is still a go and will more than likely begin production in 2014 depending on the success of permitting.

On Friday March 11, 2011, Tokyo, Japan was hit by a 9.0 earthquake followed by a giant Tsunami which then triggered explosions at a nuclear power plant. Over three weeks after the devastation, the death toll is still rising and thousands are still missing. At this point, clean drinking water is a hard to find item, as rescuers still search for survivors and victims of the disasters. On that fateful day, Lisa Adams (Glenrock) and Dara Palmer (Casper) sat in the Dooenbos student lounge at Casper College where they both attend, watching the events unfold. Adams immediately donated $50 and Palmer donated $10, "because that's all she had at the time", to the Red Cross to help the victims and their families. The events in Japan hit Adams hard. Since she was in the 4th grade she has aspired to teach English in Japan. Jin Akanishi, a former member of the group KAT-TUN (a Japanese pop group) and an actor, lives there and who just so happens to be Adams idol. Adams, a 2010 Glenrock High School graduate, wanted to help so much that she is having t-shirts and wristbands

made. All profts from the sale of her T-shirts and writsbands will go to the Red Cross to help Tsunami and earthquake victims in Japan.

Adams designed the logos for the T-shirts and wristbands. Both products will be available for purchase on Ebay.com. They will also be advertised on sites such as Facebook.com, Tumblr. com, Livejournal.com and Twitter through Palmer and O'Neal, and of course they can also be purchased right here in Glenrock. Some of these websites will charge a fee for processing, but the rest of the profits made on these sales will go to the Red Cross. The sizes of the shirts will range from small to 3XL.

Adams worked diligently for three weeks to the shirts and wristbands a reality. They will be available after Monday April 11th. To purchase a T-shirt, wristband, or to donate to Adams' cause, please contact Adams at lmadams2010@hotmail.com.

Great job Lisa! You have made Glenrock proud!

LINC CONT. FROM FRONT PAGE rels from enhanced oil recovery (EOR) techniques utilising CO2 flooding operations. Big Muddy field Big Muddy field was discovered in 1917 producing from the Upper Shannon sandstone at a depth of 984 feet (300m). The primary reservoir in the field was the Second Frontier (sometimes referred to as the Second Wall Creek) at a depth of 3100 feet (945m). The State of Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (WOGCC) reports that the field has produced 53.8 million barrels of oil to date. Historically the field has produced from the Shannon, Niobrara, Frontier, Dakota and Lakota sandstones. Volumetric calculations indicate that the Second Frontier alone has 255 million barrels OOIP with primary and secondary recovery efforts to date in the Second Frontier having only recovered 12.5%. South Glenrock field South Glenrock field was discovered in 1950 producing from the Dakota formation at a depth of 5,880 feet (1,792m). The WOGCC reports that the field’s cumulative production is 75.7 million barrels of oil to date. The field has produced from the Dakota and two separate sands in the Muddy Sandstone, however other intervals that have had oil shows in the field are the Shannon, Frontier and Niobrara. Volumetric analysis of the three primary producing intervals indicate an OOIP of 170.3 million barrels of oil, with a 44% recovery factor to date. South Cole Creek field South Cole Creek was discovered in 1948 producing from the Lakota formation at a depth of 8,300 feet (2,530m). The Lakota and Dakota formations are the two primary producing horizons in the field. Other zones of interest or production include the Shannon, Muddy, Frontier, Niobrara and Mowry. The WOGCC reports that to date the field has produced 17.1 million barrels of oil. Volumetric calculations indicate 41.3 million barrels OOIP, with a recovery factor of 41% to date. Key terms of the Agreement The key terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement between Linc Energy and Rancher Energy are as follows: 1. The purchase price of the assets is US$20 million (less adjustments).

2. The assets purchased consist primarily of oil & gas leases, property interests (including all overriding royalty interests held by Rancher Energy) and wells upon the Big Muddy, South Glenrock and South Cole Creek oil fields located in Converse

County and Natrone County, Wyoming. 3. The total area of these leases is approximately 27,856 acres. Linc Energy holds significant coal leases in the Powder River Basin and is currently permitting its first underground coal gasification (UCG) operation in that region, with the first gasification operations expected to commence later this year (2011). The acquisition of the Rancher Energy oil fields is the first strategic acquisition by the Linc Energy of producing North American petroleum assets which deliver immediate revenue whilst also providing an entry point into the established EOR market utilizing the valuable CO2 stream produced from UCG operations and other CO2 sources. Peter Bond, CEO of Linc Energy, said, “We recognized some time ago that significant value could be delivered to our shareholders if we combined UCG operations with Enhanced Oil Recovery from depleted oil fields using CO2 flooding. We have been diligently working on assessing UCG and EOR opportunities in the USA for over 12 months and announced our intentions to enter this market at the end of 2010. The Rancher Energy deal represents the first step in this process and is a milestone for our expanding North American oil operations.” “Over the coming months we will continue to work on many other oil and EOR opportunities, whilst our experienced Linc Energy Wyoming operations team looks to optimize and increase current oil production upon the three oil fields we’ve just purchased from Rancher. There is considerable potential for Linc to increase oil production from traditional methods whilst we start to execute EOR upon these oil fields. Once you start the CO2 flood, the studies completed by Rancher on these fields show that Linc Energy can potentially increase oil production from a few hundred barrels/day to 10,000 to 20,000 barrels/day of oil with recoverable oil from EOR being in the 50 million to 100 million barrels. The cash flow from these Rancher oil fields is potentially very significant and the announcement today by Linc Energy of the Rancher purchase, which comes with immediate oil revenue is a great step forward for Linc Energy and its EOR plans,” Mr. Bond CEO of Linc Energy said. Upon the closing of the purchase agreement Bond stated “We are pleased to close this transaction so promptly, and take control of these cash generating oil fields. Our focus is to get on with the workovers and move to more than double production as quickly as possible. Linc Energy is continuing to look at and review other oil opportunities which fit into our strategic plan.”

Cameco, FFA Challenge FFA Members to Serve Their Communities Wyoming FFA’s 2,053 members from 51 chapters within the state are being called upon to carry out good deeds in their communities. Through the Cameco Cowboy State Challenge FFA members were asked to look around their communities, identify needs and step forward to help meet those needs. “Earlier this year, with a gift from Cameco Resources,” explains Wyoming FFA Foundation President Court Schilt, “we challenged the state’s FFA chapters to identify areas of need in their communities and partner with the FFA Foundation and Cameco to carry out projects to meet those needs. The project is called the Cameco Cowboy State Challenge.” “The FFA is an outstanding organization, and it will be especially exciting to see local members develop their own projects,” said Paul Goranson, president of Cameco Resources of Cheyenne, the nation’s largest uranium producer. At the University of Wyoming the Collegiate FFA Chapter is improving the playground facilities at the Albany County Fairgrounds. The project is made possible with funds provided by Cameco and the playground will be dedicated in memory of nineyear-old Rowdy Smallwood. “Collegiate FFA members will plan, budget for, install and maintain the park,” says Collegiate FFA Advisor Kris Brewer. “This park will stand as a testament to the care that agriculturalists provide their communities and that FFA is locally grounded.” The playground project will be complete in time for the 2011 Albany County Fair. In southwest Wyoming’s Bridger Valley members of the Jim Bridger FFA Chapter are encouraging their community members to make the switch from plastic to reusable cloth bags. “Our goal is to get 80 percent of our com-

munity in the habit of shopping with recyclable cloth bags,” say members of the Jim Bridger FFA Chapter in their funding application. “We will give them a bag and ask for a commitment to use the bags.”

Buffalo FFA members, with support from Cameco Resources and the FFA Foundation, are establishing a garden near their school. Garden produce will be used in the school lunch program, sold at an area farmer’s market and donated to a local food pantry. Pumpkins grown in the patch will be donated to the Boys and Girls Club. Buffalo FFA Advisor Jake Evans says a survey conducted by the students revealed that only ten percent of the student body is familiar with gardening. While growing the produce Evans and the Buffalo FFA Chapter members hope to see students become more aware of gardening opportunities.

“This is just a sampling of the good deeds FFA members are carrying out with support from Cameco,” says Schilt. “While helping their communities the students are learning the good feelings associated with volunteerism and that they truly can make a positive difference in others’ lives.”

A second installment of the Cameco Cowboy State Challenge will be issued to Wyoming FFA members Fall 2011. “We’re excited to see what FFA members can accomplish with a little financial support and encouragement,” says Schilt.

The Wyoming FFA Foundation supports the activities of the Wyoming FFA program. If you’d like to receive additional information on the Wyoming FFA Foundation contact their Executive Director, Jennifer Womack, at 307-351-0730 or via Womack@wyoming.com.

Choice Gas Program If you are a commercial user, with high volume, you have always been able to submit your account information for a discount rate based on volume. Smaller commercial users and residential accounts don't have significant volume, and their load factor is such that individually they do not qualify for any discount pricing. Bundling multiple accounts together and submitting them as a single bid gives them a little leverage. In the past the chamber has had a little success bundling accounts for rate purposes. We are not trying to force any individual to participate in this group, and cannot guarantee any better price than what you will find posted, however; historically there has

been a benefit. All five suppliers will be contacted and given the opportunity to bid and the group will go with low bidder.

You do not have to be a chamber member to take part in this great opportunity. Tell everyone, your family, your friends, your neighbors, everyone! The more participation, the better rates we may receive.

You should be receiving you choice gas ballot at anytime. To be included in the Chambers bid, please drop off your signed ballot by April 20 to the Chamber office or the Town Hall. You can pick up your ballot results at the town hall water department after May 1.

NEW COMMUNITY MESSAGE BOARD FOR GLENROCK A new sign will be showing up in Town in the next few months. The Revitilization Association for Main Street of Glenrock has been the catalyst in getting a Community Message Board for the Town. After several fundraisers and some wonderful donations the sign looks to be installed sometime in the next few months. The location of the new Community Message Board, which is an electronic LED sign that will sport messages such as Non Profit Events happening in Glenrock, will find its home on the Glenrock Fire Department building. The sign will have the ability to be controlled remotely so that messages regarding future events in Glenrock can be changed accordingly. Along with monies raised, the Town of Glenrock also donated $2,778.00 to RAMS of Glenrock for the new electronic Community Message Board (CMB).

These funds were generated by local participation in the Choice Gas Program from those who had selected Wyoming Community Gas. This generous donation will help RAMS of Glenrock to expand the size of the CMB. Other donations in the forms of Sponsors for the signs are from: CommuniComm Services Deer Creek Drug Thunder Basin Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Drs Mark Murphy, MD and Kate Murphy, DDS Hilltop National Bank Wickett Electric This proposal for the Glenrock Community Message Board, with an approximate value of $17,500 including electrical installation and a computer server was approved by RAMS of Glenrock at it’s meeting on March 16, 2011. The Town of Glenrock approved the request at the March 28 Town Council Meeting.

With many nearly transfixed by all the dithering and rankle over the budget battle in D.C., President Obama continues to vacillate and change his mind on a broad range of policies and issues from his promise to “close Gitmo”, to whether to impose a “no fly zone” over Iraq.

His devotees and political observers had high expectations before the election of the Harvard trained lawyer. Contrastingly, when Harry S. Truman became President, following the death of FDR, the political pundits held low expectations for the unassuming son of a Missouri livestock dealer. Truman quickly dispelled such misgivings and proved he was able and willing to make tough decisions.

It was a characteristic summed up by a sign he displayed on his desk in the White House, that read, “The Buck Stops Here!” Fearfully, however, at the current rate of government spending by our politicians, there may not be a “buck” to pass.

President Truman’s Presidency was marked by difficult choices. At the July 17, 1945, final meeting of the “Big Three” in Potsdam, Germany, with Churchill and Joseph Stalin, meeting them for the first time, Truman knew he faced monumental issues. With only three months “under his belt”, he entered the Conference facing issues with potentially grave consequences; the political future of Eastern Europe hung in the balance, the fate of the recently defeated Germany, and the still ongoing conflict with Japan.

The most daunting, however, was his alone to decide-whether to drop the atomic bomb. He reportedly received a secret telegram at the conference informing him that scientists had detonated the first nuclear explosion in the remote desert in New Mexico.

The slang saying “pass the buck” reportedly came from a frontier days expression regarding a poker game tactic, that permitted a player to “pass the buck” to the next player. President Truman knew that it was more than a poker game, and the stakes were incalculable.

Whether it was at Potsdam in 1945, or in 1947, when he decided to introduce the Marshall Plan to Congress, or June, 1950, when North Korean troops poured over the 38th Parallel across South Korea, and his ultimate decision to stop their naked aggression and send the Marines ashore in Inchon, knowing all the accompanying perils of such an audacious plan drawn up by the 70-year old General Douglas MacArthur, he made the hard choices.

OIL TANK FIRE ON THE HORNBUCKLE

History records this statement, “The President-whoever he is-has to decide.” he said, “No one else can do the deciding for him. That’s his job.” The more I read about Truman, the more I appreciate him. He had his detractors, of course. He wasn’t perfect. But truly decisive. We could us some of that today. What do you think?

On Tuesday April 5, 2011 a 500 barrel tank located on the Hornbuckle Ranch in Converse County, caught fire. Crews on the site maintained the fire until units from Douglas arrived. The fire, which started when crews began pumping into the tank appeared to be ignited by static electricity upon removal of the tanks lid. According to Russ Dalgarn with Converse County Emergency Management Services there were no active flames upon fire department arrival and the fire was contained to the tank and a small amount of grass.

Casey Tillard of Tillard Sheep Ranch in Converse County moves sheep that have been recently sheared. “We’ve got about 200 more to go before noon” stated Tillard on Thursday morning. The Tillards will have sheared 2000 sheep by the time the job is completed. Photo © Amanda Smith

Montana State UniversityNorthern women’s basketball coach Chris Mouat has announced the signing of Nicole Tresch, a 5’5” guard from Gillette College. According to Mouat, “Nikki is as pure a shooter as we’ve signed here in a long time. She put up some incredible numbers at Gillette College, and that’s saying a lot given the caliber of competition she was seeing every night.” This season, Tresch averaged 15.7 points, 2.6 assists, and 2.4 steals per game. She connected on 109 three-point field goals while shooting 42% from beyond the arc. She finished 27th in 3-point percentage among all NJCAA Division I players and made more 3-point field goals than anyone ranked in the top 50. Mouat added, “Nikki took more threes than anyone in the country at the NJCAA Division I level and she shot a great percentage. Beyond that, she is also a good de-

fender and finds open people. She has been well-coached both in high school and at the junior college level, she is competitive, and she loves to play. To top it off, she is a great student with a 3.85 grade point average. Nikki is a great addition to our program.” Tresch was the first-ever recruit at the newly-formed Gillette program two seasons ago. She made the first 3-point field goal and registered the first assist in program history, and has already set a number of records at the school. She holds marks for points in a game (31), 3-point field goals in a season (109), 3-point field goals made in a game (9), three-point field goals made in a career (173), steals in a season (75), steals in a career (127), and assists in a career (158). Following her sophomore season, she was named an NJCAA Academic All-American. As a high school athlete, Tresch was highly decorated as well. She played softball

where she was the shortstop and leadoff hitter on a state championship team and an all-state selection. She was a 3-year letter winner in volleyball where she still holds the school record for assists. In track and field, she was a 4-year letter winner and twotime all-state selection. She holds the school record in the 100 meter and 300 meter hurdles as well as the 4 X 100 relay, and was picked to run in the Wyoming Classic Track Meet for the top athletes from all classifications in the state of Wyoming. On the basketball floor, Tresch was a 4-year letter winner at Glenrock, where she helped lead her team to a school record for wins in her senior season. She was a three-time all-conference pick and a unanimous allstate selection her senior season. She played in the annual Montana-Wyoming, Wyoming-South Dakota, and Wyoming Coaches AllStar Games.

ly complete offensive game, but her biggest strength is obviously from the perimeter. She is dangerous every time she gets a good look.”

Mouat added, “One story that came up about Nikki’s competitiveness really stood out during our time recruiting her. At the regional tournament her senior year in high school, her team was playing for third and fourth place. Down by 14 points in the fourth quarter, Nikki single-handedly brought her team back with six threepointers and 21 points in the fourth quarter alone. She finished with 29 points and helped lead her team to a big win.”

Tresch plans to major in elementary education at MSUNorthern. She is the daughter of Roger and Lori Tresch of Glenrock.

Mouat said, “Nikki has a fair-

Would You Know What to Do During a Disaster?

Ninety-seven out of 210 county resident surveys on preparing for natural disasters have been filled out and returned. The surveys, sent out in February and analyzed at the end of March, are ,part of the process to prepare the sConverse County hazard mitiga-tion plan.

y Individuals who received the survey were randomly selected yfrom county voter registration srolls. Thirty five of the responddents live outside of one of the -incorporated communities, 41 -respondents live in Douglas, 19 nin Glenrock, and two in Rolling sHills. These response percentaghes are roughly equivalent to the sgeneral population distribution in ithe county. The survey response rrate makes it a statistically valid -sample, meaning that there is a e95% chance with a (10% level eof accuracy) that the surveys drepresent the answers all voters gwould give. Respondents were enticed to return their surveys by the chance to win a $50 gas card. -The two winners are Julie Siders -and Marvin Woheltz, both from -Glenrock. h Respondents were asked what steps their households have taken to prepare for hazard events such as flooding, wildfires, blizzards, and others. Seventy-nine percent indicated that they had stored a flashlight and batteries. Sixty-five percent had medical supplies and 60% have had first aid training. More than half have a fire extinguisher and know about their utility shut-offs. The vast majority of respondents,

90% indicated that they were either very or somewhat confident their household would know what to do during a hazard event. Only 7% were not confident they would know what to do. When asked to rate the hazards they were most concerned about, survey participants said hail, winter storms, wind storms, wildfire, and tornadoes were the top hazards of concern in descending order. These were followed by drought, earthquake, hazardous material spills and flooding. Hazards of least concern were landslides, dam failure, and land subsidence. Russ Dalgarn, Converse County Emergency Management Coordinator observed that “it’s logical that certain hazards would be of more or less concern to residents in different parts of the county, for example, those people who live in Douglas would be less directly affected, if at all, by a wildfire event, while those who live up against the National Forest could be very directly affected.” As for what to do to prepare for the various hazards, survey participants were asked to rate the importance of different types of actions. Emergency services and public education were the two most important types of things that respondents would like to see to help them prepare for a potential natural disaster. Hazard mitigation planner, Barb Beck, said “We’ll be relying on the information people provided to us in this survey to develop the goals and actions for the

hazard mitigation plan update. Given that public resources are limited and need to be used effectively, we want to do what makes sense for the residents of Converse County. According to this survey that means making sure emergency responders have what they need to be ready and that residents have information ahead of time about winter storms, wind storms and tornadoes among other things.” Converse County Emergency Management Coordinator, Dalgarn, was pleased with the survey response rate. “I’d like to thank the people who took time to fill out and return the survey. The information they have provided will help make the plan better so that if and when we do have a disaster, we don’t lose any lives, and damage to property is minimal. That’s the bottom line for this whole effort.” For a copy of the survey report or more information about the plan update you can contact either Dalgarn at 358-6880, or Beck at (406) 4463628.

Enzi: Troops Should Be Protected From Budget Indecision Urges Leader To Allow Whole Senate To Engage Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., believes U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, DNev., should allow the full Senate to take part in the government funding decision by holding a vote on the House funding plan. Enzi is seeking an up or down vote on the House-passed bill that would keep the government open for another week, while providing funding for our troops through the end of the fiscal year. “The House has put forth a plan to keep the government opena few more days and

to provide funding for our troops through September. The Senate and White House have not produced anyserious ideas on decreasing spending. The Senate, including members of the leader’s own party, should have a chance to vote yes or no on the only plan that is out there,” said Enzi. “Americans understand that government spendingin Washington is out of control. The House is trying to heed that call and decrease spending only to be stalled by the White House and Senate leadership. The cards are on the table. Senate Democrats

and Republicans alike should have the opportunity to sit at that table, do what they came here to do and cast their vote. But our troops who are putting their lives in harm’s way should not feel the brunt of a government shutdown should it come to that. Not funding the troops is inexcusable.”

The House passed H.R. 1363, the Continuing Resolution, Thursday, April 7, 2011 by a vote of 247-181. The President threatened to veto this bill before the House voted on it. In Wyoming a veto threat from the Governor would be illegal, according to Enzi.

Now that the survey results have been analyzed, the goals and projects can be completed. The county Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) will validate or adjust the goals and projects during their May meeting and the draft plan will then be made available for a six-week public review and comment period.

Enzi Praises Repeal Of 1099 Irs Reporting Requirement Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., Ranking Member on the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee, today praised Senate action to eliminate burdensome IRS reporting requirements for small businesses. The repeal passed today is identical to a bill sponsored by Senator Mike Johanns, R-Neb., and cosponsored by Senator Enzi, that would repeal the 1099 mandate approved as part of the new health care law, the Affordable Care Act. “I am pleased to see that

my colleagues in the majority have finally embraced the need to repeal this burdensome provision,” said Senator Enzi. “I have long understood that the 1099 requirements kill jobs and hurt small businesses and I commend Senator Johanns for his leadership on this issue.” Business groups across the country have called on Congress to make the changes to the 1099 reporting requirements. “It is my hope that today’s vote to repeal onerous requirements from the health care law passed last year is

the first of many,” Enzi said. “This health care spending law is bad for Americans, bad for small businesses, and bad for our economy.” A provision in the Affordable Care Act would force 40 million businesses to submit a separate 1099 form to the IRS for every businessto-business transaction that totals more than $600 in a year. The bill, H.R. 4, passed today rescinds that provision. The bill is now headed to the President’s desk for his signature.

Wyoming Senators Disappointed That Epa Reg Ban Failed

by Bill McCarthy

CHEYENNE – Wyoming’s senators said they were disappointed that an effort to prevent the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating greenhouse gases died in the Senate today. Wyoming Republican Sens. John Barrasso and Mike Enzi voted for blocking the EPA’s ability to regulate manmade gases – including carbon dioxide – blamed for global climate change. The U.S. Senate voted 5050 against an amendment to S.493, the Small Business and Innovation Research bill, that would prevent the EPA from using the Clean Air Act to regulate greenhouse gas emissions. The amendment needed 60 votes to pass.

“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – unelected bureaucrats at the EPA should not single handedly change the intent of the Clean Energy Act to fit their ‘shut down fossil fuels at any cost’ agenda. Unfortunately, that is what is happening and just as unfortunate is the failure of the U.S. Senate to stop them, despite the efforts of Western senators,” said Enzi in a statement. The Hill, the newspaper covering Congress, reported that Republicans had hoped to get enough votes to say a majority of senators supported blocking the EPA from climate regulation. “Today, a record number of Senators voted to stop the EPA from implementing a job crushing back door cap and

trade policy. Despite falling short of the 60 votes needed to stop the Administration from moving forward, it is a momentous vote,” Barrasso said in his statement. The amendment won the support of four Democrats. The Democrats supporting the measure included: Sens. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Mark Pryor of Arkansas and Ben Nelson of Nebraska. One Republican, Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, voted against the amendment. The proposal would have repealed a 2009 finding by federal scientists that climate change caused by greenhouse gases endangers human health that allows the EPA to regulate the gas emissions.

AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION HONORS U.S. SEN. MIKE ENZI Will receive award for protecting funds that provide legal aid for struggling families WASHINGTON, D.C., April 8, 2011 — Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY) will receive the American Bar Association’s Congressional Award April 12 for his support of legislation to protect funds that help low-income families who need legal assistance. The legislation requires the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation to fully insure Interest on Lawyers Trust Accounts. The interest generated from these accounts provides funding for civil legal services for people near or below the poverty line, including the working poor, low-income veterans and per-

sons with disabilities. IOLTA is one of the largest funding sources for free legal services in the country, supporting legal aid offices and pro bono programs in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands. “Legislating sometimes leads to unintended consequences and that was certainly the case with this issue. I am pleased to help provide a legislative fix to ensure lowincome families continue receiving legal assistance with no cost to the government,” said Sen. Enzi. “Protecting IOLTA is a zerocost, common sense way to help struggling Wyoming families — Sen. Enzi’s support was crucial,” said Stephen N. Zack, president of

the ABA. This bill was signed into law Dec. 29, 2010.

With nearly 400,000 members, the American Bar Association is the largest voluntary professional membership organization in the world. As the national voice of the legal profession, the ABA works to improve the administration of justice, promotes programs that assist lawyers and judges in their work, accredits law schools, provides continuing legal education, and works to build public understanding around the world of the importance of the rule of law.

I’m Just Sayin... Its Not Easy Being Green

Kermit the Frog had it right 35 years ago when he sang the song “It’s Not Easy Being Green.” I’m not an expert on the subject, nor am I an authority on environmental issues, but as a common American citizen there are certain things that make good sense and others that do not.

Having environmental policies motivated out of fear of what might happen has its consequences not the least of which is that we become dependent upon other nations for our energy. To make America dependent upon anybody puts us in a weak position. We are a nation of strength and it’s important for us to stay that way.

According to Jonathan Powers of the Truman National Security Project in a report February of 2010 he has this to say; “The U.S. sends approximately one billion dollars a day overseas to import oil. While this figure is staggering by itself, the dangerous implications of our addiction are even more pronounced when analyzing where our money goes – and whom it helps to support.”

To put our money into harvesting the natural resources of other nations such as Brazil, then have to turn around and “become their best customer” is just ridiculous. We have more oil reserves in our own country than all of the Middle East. So why have we been a slave to the oil giants that hate our guts and would rather see us destroyed than flourish? Brazil should be OUR best customer!

Contemplate this scenario: If the US should become so weak by relying on other nations that we are taken over (China owns a tremendous amount of our debt – all they have to do is call it in and we’re history folks) do you think for one moment they will care about our National parks and pristine environments? Do you think they will care that manatees might be in danger or that a species of owl might lose it’s home due to forestry? No. They will drill for our oil and cut down our trees, and mine our coal without caring a fig for any of it. The very policies our environmentalists (18% of the population) are foisting upon the rest of this nation will be their own undoing. The US of A is one of the leading nations in research and development. It makes more sense to use our own brilliant minds to safely reap our own resources than to put us in a position where others will soon be dictating what we do and how we do it. People need to think further into the future than just today. Yes we need to have alternative energy sources. I don’t think anybody is arguing that point. Yes we need to take care of our planet – that’s not an argument either. But if you think we have global agreement on the issue – NOT. What we need is to be able to keep our money in our own country, pay our own citizens to drill for our oil and gas, mine our own coal and reap our own benefits until the technology for new energy is developed thoroughly. We send 1 billion dollars a day overseas and it employs their citizens, strengthens their economies and keeps their people working so they can pay their mortgages.
