Every day on the television, the three "big media" business channels harp over and over and over how the Internet and online shopping is responsible for the lost revenue to the large clothing and merchandise outlets that are now threatened with closing their stores. Don't believe it! The reason the stores are closing is because half of our population doesn't have jobs anymore and if they do they don't pay enough to make a living wage. These people don't have any money to buy anything with. They have no buying power! Half of our country's not working and the other half are all receiving "welfare." Wake up! How can any commonsense type thinking person, think this scenario is going to end "happily ever after."
The seventh annual Eckert Crane Days, the annual viewing of the sandhill cranes migrating north from New Mexico through Colorado's West Slope, will be March 16-18. Representatives from the Black Canyon Chapter of the Audubon Society (BCAS) will be at the viewing site east of Eckert at Fruitgrowers Reservoir, 9 to 11 a.m. each day, to answer questions and provide binoculars and spotting scopes.
