Here’s something you don’t see every day.



Heatherwood Elementary

This school in Boulder apparently has some very cool teachers and parents.

…In just three years, Heatherwood Elementary’s walkers and bicyclists jumped from 12 percent to more than 43 percent of the school.

And, to recognize the importance of including all students in their program, Heatherwood’s SRTS coordinators made a special effort to the school’s autistic children in the district-wide Bike to School Day.

Jones Act

The little-known Jones Act. Via the EIA’s report on potential refinery closure impacts:

(The impact of refinery closures, by the way: Potential short-term supply disruptions and price spikes, due to transportation and other logistical issues. It’s not that there won’t be enough gasoline, there just might not be enough for a while in those places that used to be supplied by the shut refineries. Then, those supply networks are developed and those problems ease, although longer supply lines may add some to the final retail price.)
