Help Wanted: U.S. Defense Department Seeks Better PR Officers

"Our enemies have skillfully adapted to fighting wars in today's media age, but . . . our country has not adapted. For the most part, the U.S. government still functions as a 'five and dime' store in an eBay world."

--U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, on why al Qaeda is winning hearts and minds, in speech to U.S. Council on Foreign Relation (Thanks to alert WORDster Mark Larson) WORD Note: The WORD will take the next week off for Spring Break, sleeping in and seeking wisdom. Return: 3/20/06

Cornish seeks bids for new water line

By Katie Smedley

February 10, 2006 | CORNISH -- The Town Council voted Tuesday to accept bids for a water project to be reviewed by JUB Engineers.

The current water line, on 4800 West, is made of cast iron and in the winter frequently breaks, said Amy Murphy, town recorder.

Murphy said the new water line will replace 5,711 feet of pipe. The estimated cost of the new water line is $200,000. A loan of approximately $130,000 will be taken out from the State Drinking Water Division and a grant of about $82,000 will cover the rest.

Once the bids are reviewed by the engineers to make sure they meet all specifications, there will be a formal acceptance of the bid which will take place Feb. 16.

The lowest bid will be taken and contracted to complete the project.

The water project begins once weather permits and is estimated to take two months to complete, said Murphy.

The state is also requiring repair of the old storage tank, which has several openings and needs to be sealed off.

No additional costs will be added for repair of the storage tank.

The water project will include new meters to measure water usage, said Murphy.
