    Buried largely beneath the Alaskan tundra and coastal waters is a 145.5 billion-barrel vault of recoverable oil, nearly eight times our measured oil reserves. This does not count our vast supply of untapped oil shale in the Western part of the United States, which a modest estimate places at 800 billion recoverable barrels. Our potential supply of natural gas totals more than 2,000 trillion cubic feet.

However, this confidence in thinking that they can fight a fire this size is what can lead to a situation getting worse, or a person getting seriously injured.

  • Carroll County graduation 2012: Letter from a parent

    Carroll County High School graduated my youngest son last month, marking the second time I have celebrated a child’s successful transition from this high school to college.

    My boys did not have to go to college to be successful, of course. They could have turned their entrepreneurial skills into an edgy tech startup and installed me as a puppet president with benefits. And a meal plan. They did not. Instead, following their mother’s advice, they chose college.
