Thank you Jim for voicing the opinions of many in that we maintain our rural integrity about what Western Colorado means to its residents and to those who visit here.  The drill baby drill attitude of some lawmakers come hell or high water must be held accountable for environmental issues and the foundation of our history in agriculture and tourism.

Keep up the good fight!

An all-of-the-above approach means we should be making sure agriculture stays economically strong (including having enough water), and strongly expand tourism in our area. Food and recreation are things people will always want and need, whereas a single energy industry is very volatile and finite.

Thought Spehar would have learned from the past that tourism/recreation-based jobs only bolster the economy during good times. We need jobs that are there when times are good and bad.
