Here are four stories that I believe are worth bringing to you.
Moving the federal animal disease research lab for the Department of Homeland Security from New York to Kansas. There are pros and cons about the move as the article states. If the building is sufficiently hardened (the current building in NY is not), then I’m fine with the move. I am struck by the fact the federal government has spent between $30,000,000 and $40,000,000 on site selection alone. I don’t even know how that is possible! What a waste of our dollars.
In 2012, Kansas will be #1 in new wind power construction. I wish I thought that was a good thing.
The new tornado and “world’s largest hand-dug well” museum in Greensburg is coming along nicely. Unfortunately, they do not expect to have it finished by May 4, which is the fifth anniversary of the devastating F-5 tornado. Hopefully, it will be done by the Memorial Day weekend.
