Did Commissioner Berget comment on the decision to place Stingers 105,000 sq. ft. building so
that it mirrors the Commissioners private property and shares a property line? Somehow he comes
off as insincere in his remorse at Stinger leaving.

Sad LIBBY and others fell for the BS from boy from AZ. Next time maybe
they ( Libby ) need to make sure promises aren’t from some nickel and dime

The state needed to be involved to keep the locals from making mistakes & granting such
drooling awards. Desperate Libby went beyond their abilities to attract new business.

Since Bacus got the firm a $17,000,000 contract/award….maybe he ought to man up & fix the
mess so the rare jobs can be kept in Libby. Moving to Arizona will only make their problem
worse, as I doubt they can handle the relocation costs & add to the AZ facilities problems,
which also another story on the web says in danger of closing.

It’s been several years since this economy has created real wealth, as opposed to the easy credit
induced Real Estate market through 2007 or paper wealth which has accelerated over the last 4 years.
This unproductive, expanding Super Bubble has spawned malinvestments in communities like Libby
with the Stinger plant. This ‘Hot Money’ flowing from the FED has been pouring into ill conceived
enterprises that are in the wrong places, producing the wrong things…..This is not going to end well!

I finished 100 Years of Solitude in my empty high school art room, and the top of my head came off, just like Emily Dickinson said.
