Description:
The program this week is still in the works, but worst case we will have another open discussion format - if you have anything you want to inform the group about or have questions on various current events this is a great chance to get 'er done.
09/28- Jacob Kuntz, Executive Director Helena Area Habitat for Humanity
10/05- Renee Reijo Pera, PhD - V.P. for Research and Economic Development, MSU
10/12- Superintendent Dan Wenk, Yellowstone Park
10/19- Donald Bean, Scout Executive Montana Council, Boy Scouts of America
Several of us local "gear heads" enjoy Top Fuel drag racing where 11,000 horsepower 2,350 pound dragsters acceleration from zero to 340 miles per hour in well under 4 seconds. It takes a lot of fuel to satisfy these monster engines - they burn 1 gallons per second - that would be 90 gallons a minute. The fuel pumps actually supply over 100 gallons per minute of nitro-methane fuel.
Two weeks ago we passed the envelope for Food Share and HTH members donated $791 dollars to them. Ex. Director Bruce Day advised me that Food Share is currently serving 550 families and putting together 1,000 Kid Packs a week. Wow - that is a lot of "stuff."
Jeff Wadekamper advised the 150 foot semi with the Constellation aircraft fuselage loaded on it was not able to leave as planned last week. Apparently California has changed some of their rules for long / tall/ wide loads but they expect to get out of town in a week or so. Jeff also mentioned the new restaurant in the terminal is open - think the hours are 4am to 7 or 8pm.
Lumber prices are going through the roof - the cost of building a new home is increasing. Canada had a lot of forest fires just like the Northwest part of the U.S. and the hurricanes result in a lot of building materials heading to southeast.
The story in the IR about the Butte meat business and their issues with state and federal regulators was very interesting - not sure I have seen many in depth stories like that one as the was nothing left out to protect the anyone. If you don't get the paper you should check it out online.
