Pay particular attention to things like the “connected actions” point on p. 81, and note that in their view, the Brookings-Hampton line is NOT connected to the Hampton-Rochester-LaCrosse line, and the Badger-Coulee line is NOT connected.  See the above post for the testimony filed yesterday that shows just how connected it all is.

Remember the big picture:

Hearing Ex. 13, Big Picture Map

DUH!  The Brooking’s line’s connected to the Hampton sub, the Hampton sub’s connected to North Roch… It’s all connected…

This week is “USDA RUS” hearings week for the Draft Environmental Impact Statement, but look what just came over the wire as I was headed out the door to Alma:

05-CE-136 Notice of Possible Recession of Order and Order to Respond

Really, “recession.”  That’s what it says.  Not just on the file name but on the Order.  It’s hard to take something labeled like this seriously, methinks he means “recission,” but hey, he’s the judge…  it’s an Order… and a response will be posted ASAP!!!

I’ll post the NoCapX 2020 response tomorrow, there’s three days to reply, and others can reply to the NoCapX response.  Get ready!
