Hi-Ho...It's Back to Colorado They Go

YOU'LL HAVE TO FORGIVE THE 1500 COLORADO RESIDENTS -- CUT OFF FROM CIVILIZATION, BY A WASHED OUT ROAD -- IF THEY AREN'T ALL TOO EXCITED ABOUT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN.

THEY HAVE BIGGER HEADACHES.

BUT NOW, ABOUT 120 MEMBERS OF THE UTAH NATIONAL GUARD 1457TH ENGINEER BATALLION ARE RETURNING TO THEIR STATE, TO BEGIN MAKING ROAD REPAIRS.

REPAIRS THAT WOULD HAVE BEGUN A WEEK AGO, IF NOT FOR THE WASHINGTON D-C GAME PLAYING.

THE STATE OF COLORADO HAS AGREED TO PAY THE HALF MILLION DOLLAR TAB ON THE PROJECTED THREE WEEK PROJECT.

THEN THEY'LL SEEK REIMBERSEMENT FROM UNCLE SAM, ONCE HE'S BACK ON THE JOB.
