Quotes

"The environment is our economy. The whole state is based on environmental issues. So, we need to have our environment in good shape." -- Shane Spring, Realtor on Sanibel Island
"A withdrawal is the right approach for this priceless American landscape," Secretary Salazar said in a statement after the ban. "People from all over the country and around the world come to visit the Grand Canyon. Numerous American Indian tribes regard this magnificent icon as a sacred place and millions of people in the Colorado River Basin depend on the river for drinking water, irrigation, industrial and environmental use. We have been entrusted to care for and protect our precious environmental and cultural resources, and we have chosen a responsible path that makes sense for this and future generations."
...Republican Sen. Pat Roberts " newest spot hits independent Greg Orman over Obamacare, and features a clip of Orman being evasive when asked about Obamacare. The narrator then accuses Orman of supporting Obamacare, and continues to portray him as an Obama puppet. Republicans have run a lot of these ads already linking Orman to Obama and national Democrats, and they'll run a lot more before Election Day."
..."We are excited to meet new members and cultivate existing friendships," said Hester. "As a facilitator I have seen relationships evolve between different women. As women discover areas of similar interests, the conversations become personal and rewarding for all who participate. There is something beneficial for all who attend." Those interested in joining are invited to drop by for a visit. For more information, call Program Director Gail Gannon at 973-635-4565
