   JOKE    THOUGHT    OPINION
We think we need to talk, and the subject should be today’s edition of the Joke of the Day!


"Life is like getting dropped off in the middle of the woods, and then year by year, gradually walking home."

~April Foiles


   THIS WEEK'S POLL
Governor Mead is asking for public input on proposals to build four new dams in Wyoming, and increase storage capacity at several existing facilities. The governor says the state needs more water storage for drought years, but others say the state doesn’t need the dams and they are too expensive.   Should Wyoming build more dams and increase its water storage?



A Montana group says that homeowners and local governments should cover more of the cost of fighting forest fires, because county and state governments are letting homeowners build houses in high risk areas. The costs of fighting forest fires are currently part of the federal budget, and the group says those costs are increasing because of homes built in poor locations.   Should local taxpayers pick up more of the tab for firefighting?





   LAST WEEK'S RESULTS
(WyomingNetwork does NOT represent this as a scientific poll.)
President Obama is asking Congress for $3.7 billion to deal with the flood of illegal immigrants, many of them children, coming across the country’s southern border. The money would go toward more border patrol agents, human resources like food and shelter for the children, and to speed up processing them in the court system. Some Republicans in Congress oppose the idea, saying it is too much money and is not needed.   Should Congress approve the extra money to deal with the influx of children crossing the border?

Yes
27.9%

No
72.1%

The Powder River Basin Resource Council says permits for construction of the Two Elk coal-fired power plant near Wright, Wyoming should be withdrawn, since there has been no action on construction of the plant in 18 years. The Wyoming Industrial Siting Council and other state agencies have granted repeated extensions on the permits.  Should the Two Elk power plant be canceled and the permits withdrawn?

Yes, withdraw the permits
70.3%

No, keep the permits in place
29.7%
