    the local stores have been abused by the central head management. the local manager has NO say in pricing, or merchandise. The manager is my neighbor and goes to the same church as I do.. I Have ask personally for some different item then Alco sells, and he and all the other workers in the store, ( my neighbors ) in a small town say, that the prices, selection and operation are controlled by the top management..
    In our Alco 40 % of the retail space is clothing, the Vast majority of it is for suburb shoppers. not Ranch/farm community.. After the unsold , over priced Chinese merchandise has set on the racks for 5 months, half is hauled out some where the other half is sold at 60-70 % off.. wow that sa lot of money for ALCO. Our local store for 3 years was a Duckwall store, and it was a great success, in fact the reason they built a New store 5 years ago was because of that Duckwall successful foot print.. When it switched to the larger ALCO version, it was OK for 1 year then about 4 yrs ago it went down the drain . In many ways as soon as this store closes , I know another successful brand will come into this community and use the same store.. This time the NEW store will have some one who KNOWS how to retail. Not just throw Stuff up on a RACK.. don

  • More oil then the US part of GOM . don
    Russia’s state-run OAO Rosneft (ROSN) said a well drilled in the Kara Sea region of the Arctic Ocean with Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM) struck oil, showing the region has the potential to become one of the world’s most important crude-producing areas.

    The announcement was made by Igor Sechin, Rosneft’s chief executive officer, who spent two days sailing on a Russian research ship to the drilling rig where the find was unveiled today. The well found about 1 billion barrels of oil and similar geology nearby means the surrounding area may hold more than the U.S. part of the Gulf or Mexico, he said

  • We get a weekly flyer, we shop at local alco, but buy only things on sale, if you watch the flyers they rotate every3 weeks or so..

    One day someone will say OH my look at all the debt that needs to be refinanced in the world..
    Has anyone looked at the debt clock lately, this ME war that is just restarting could get real wild after election day, which is 6 tues away.I am sure the good old USA will get to pay for the war.. Britian, the French and Belgium said they would help today, But of all the countries in the region who has the Aircraft carriers and real equiptment..
    Although worker/employement is so low in this country there should only be wage inflation in OIL country, I read a article where 23 % of people 25-54 were unemployed.. those over 54 had already had a job or signed up for fed disability.

    ARDIN, Mont. — Western Sugar Cooperative is going to have a big crop this year, and the biggest part of it will be in the Billings, Mont., production area.

    “We have a very respectable crop coming across Western Sugar,” said J. Kent Wimmer, longtime director of shareholder relations and government affairs for the co-op, based in Denver. Western Sugar is the only beet sugar company in the country with all of its production under irrigation.

    “The projected average would be 32 tons per acre, which would be a record for the cooperative,” Wimmer said. “A lot driving it is that Montana crop, the potential for a record. They’re looking at 38.5 tons up there right now, and it could be better than that if the weather continues to progress like it is.”

    This is the third,” Nedens said. A two-track path beaten down by onlookers was taking shape. Nedens gave the men a two-fingered country wave and prepared to turn around as he reached the end of his acres. “This is the first one of its kind in this area. It’s kind of unusual.”

    Farmers from Billings to Hardin have been talking about Nedens’ new self-propelled beet harvester for months. It’s one of only six in the four states in which the Western Sugar Cooperative operates and the only one in Montana.
    The German-made Ropa Tiger XL is a bright Yellow mastodon of a machine that not only harvests beets, but also defoliates them before depositing the tallowy roots into a cage large enough to handle a 30-ton harvest. Like most pieces of large modern farm machinery, it cost more than a house, but Nedens said the machine should pay for itself over time with efficiency.

    The harvester eliminates the need for a defoliator to drive ahead cutting greens from the beets. Older, tractor-pulled harvesters also hold fewer beets, just four tons. The Ropa eliminates the need for several extra pieces of machinery, which makes it much easier orchestrating the interaction between field equipment and the semi-trucks hauling beets to the delivery pile where they’re weighed and hauled to the sugar factory in Billings.
    The Ropa harvests seven rows of sugar beets at a time and can potentially retrieve more than an acre’s worth without stopping.

    Learning to drive it was no easy task. Ropa sent Nedens Farms an instructor to train Bret and his brother Chris how the run the machine, which has more computer settings than a modern airplane.

    Wyoming sugar beet growers have had a head start on the 2014 growing season from the beginning.
    Producers planted the more than 30,000 acres of beets produced in Wyoming as much as three weeks early in some parts of the state. The late April planting dates have sugar factories in the state firing up for an early harvest.

    Promising market trends and solid growing conditions are cause for optimism among producers.
    “We have a very good crop coming this year if our estimate is correct,” said Kent Wimmer, director of governmental affairs at Western Sugar Cooperative.

    Western Sugar officials anticipate a crop of 29.5 tons per acre at their Torrington sugar processing facility. Western Sugar has already started early harvest at the Lovell processing site and will officially begin harvest Oct. 2. Torrington will follow shortly after, on Oct. 9.
    In the central regions of the state, Wyoming Sugar Co. officials are reporting what could be a record crop in beet fields in Big Horn, Washakie and Fremont counties. They plan to begin harvest Sept. 29.

    “My original estimate was 29.7 tons per acre,” said Myron Casdorph, agriculture administrator at Wyoming Sugar Co. “If we have a nice harvest, which would help us get the beets out in a timely fashion, we could have well over a 30-ton-per-acre record crop. It could be the best crop we’ve ever seen.”
