Bed bugs creep into the Grand Valley From Sky

Posted: 20 Jul 2010 08:14 AM PDT

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - The battle against bed bugs is creeping up in the Grand Valley. These insects could be hitching onto used furniture that's up for sale. Bed bug victim Chris Gibson saved up what money he could to buy a used couch. Less than a month later, it's being sprayed for bed bugs. "I didn't know what was happening. O thought it was rash at first. It turns out that there were bite marks all over myself and son," says Gibson.Exterminators in Grand Junction say the nighttime bloodsuckers have hitchhiked their way into the Green Valey from ski The bugs are extremely resilient and tough to get rid of. "They can feed one time and live for a year. If they bite you today, you've got 12 months in which they could be living in the cracks and crevices," says Terminix exterminator Tyler Lehr. Gibson will pay more than $1,700 dollars to fumigate his apartment over a year long process. He says the store crept away from helping him. "He basically said prove it," says Gibson. "You can't pinpoint the source exactly. You can pick them up at movie theaters, staying at hotels, or used furniture" says Lehr. "It's buyer beware when it comes to buying something second hand. We do our best to clean them up, to make them usable. But, they're second hand. You don't always know the history of what something's been through," says Amy Rogers, executive director for the Habitat for Humanity of Mesa County. The Habitat for Humanity Re–store says it follows all state regulations, which include a chemical spray down. But some exterminators say that's not enough to kill these parasites. "I don't think you can spray something one time and get rid of them completely," says Lehr. Several exterminators told 11 news that they receive daily calls for bed bugs in the Grand Junction area. They say this was not the case about a decade ago.

Macy’s Increases Backhaul Loads By 30 Per Week

Posted: 20 Jul 2010 08:07 AM PDT

According to the National Private Truck Council, approximately 28 percent of trailers on U.S. highways are currently running empty at high cost to companies, the economy and the environment. During these challenging times, reducing empty miles has become especially critical for a carrier's operations and bottom-line health. Two progressive companies — Macy's Inc., the nation's premier retailer, and Schneider National, a leading provider of transportation and logistics — are among the more than 30 companies coming together with a new sense of urgency to solve this age-old, yet contemporary issue. Together, Schneider and Macy's are realizing both financial and environmental gains by filling empty trailers with the help of the Empty Miles Service, an innovative online solution developed by the Voluntary Interindustry Commerce Solutions Association (VICS), GS1 Canada and GS1 US.

Researchers: Donner Party member carried Lincoln documents on journey

Posted: 19 Jul 2010 08:08 AM PDT

(CNN) -- Researchers have made an unexpected discovery among the items a member of the Donner Party kept in a carpetbag on the group's ill-fated journey to California: a military document with Abraham Lincoln's handwriting on it. Donner Party member James Reed and his family carried muster rolls with Lincoln's name on them among their treasured heirlooms, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum said in a statement released Monday. A team of librarians, historians and handwriting experts combined forces to confirm that Lincoln's writing was on one of the documents, which list Lincoln and volunteer soldiers who fought in the 1832 Black Hawk War. "We often find documents that detail fascinating stories about Abraham Lincoln's life and times, but it is rare indeed for the document to have such an intriguing history after it was written," said Daniel Stowell, director of the Papers of Abraham Lincoln. "That these documents detail part of Lincoln's military service and that they accompanied the Donner Party to California makes them doubly significant." All four of the muster rolls include "Private Abraham Lincoln" among the list of soldiers. On one of them, experts say two-and-a-half lines are clearly written in Lincoln's hand. And the documents reveal that Lincoln had a horse worth $85 and equipment valued at $15, noting that Lincoln received one tent that was United States property to be returned at the end of his service. The lines Lincoln wrote said: "Muster Roll of Captain Jacob M. Earleys Company of Mounted Volunteers Mustered out of the service of the United States By order of Brigadier General Atkinson of the United States army on White Water Rivers of Rock River on the 10th day of July 1832." The documents are part of the James Frazier Reed Collection at the California State Library. Reed's name appears just beneath Lincoln's on the list. He was one of the organizing members of the Donner Party, the group of pioneers known for resorting to cannibalism while enduring a harsh winter in the Sierra Nevada mountains. He likely inherited the papers from the military company's commander and took them with him when he left Springfield, Illinois, in April 1846 because they were part of his personal history, the Lincoln Presidential Library said. While historians believe the papers accompanied the Donner Party for their entire journey, Reed did not. He was banished from the group after fighting with a teamster and stabbing him to death, Monday's library statement said. He left the papers with his wife after being expelled from the party, and "she brought them safely in her bosom to California when helped by the first relief party which went to their assistance," daughter Martha Jane "Patty" Reed recalled.
