Brazil: JBS and another BIG MEAT company raided in tainted meat scandal

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 18, 2017

So how does this affect you in America? It doesn’t directly, but it gives me another opportunity to educate new readers!

The story, which I first heard on my regular early morning scan of CNN, is about JBS, the Brazilian meat giant, that is changing American small cities because of it voracious desire for refugee labor!

Meatpacking companies get the cheap labor.  American towns get the cultural upheaval.

I took this photo of JBS headquarters in Greeley this past summer on my 6,000 mile tour of refugee-overloaded towns. JBS is a Brazilian owned company benefiting from cheap refugee labor. Our tax dollars (welfare) subsidize those wages, so our meat is not cheap!

For new readers I have contended for years that the US Refugee Admissions Program is more about supplying large global corporations with cheap/captive labor than it is about ‘humanitarianism.’ 

Wages are low and we (taxpayers) subsidize the workers’ families through welfare. What a business model!

JBS (BIG MEAT) and other companies it owns (BIG CHICKEN) are changing towns like Greeley, Colorado where a large influx of Somalis have moved to the area to work for the global corporation, or have been directly resettled there by federal refugee resettlement contractors.

Be sure to see this story by Bloomberg about BIG MEAT and the Trump refugee slowdown.

Although this happened in Brazil, it places, once again, front and center the question of our food safety!

From the New York Times (emphasis is mine):

Brazil’s Largest Food Companies Raided in Tainted Meat Scandal

RIO DE JANEIRO — Federal agents raided the operations of Brazil’s largest food companies on Friday over accusations that their employees oversaw a scheme that included bribing inspectors to allow rotten meals to be served in public schools and salmonella-contaminated meat to be exported to Europe.

The investigation by Brazil’s Federal Police, an agency similar to the F.B.I., deals yet another blow to the country’s business establishment, which is struggling to recover from colossal graft scandals around Petrobras, the national oil company, and Odebrecht, a huge construction company.

In the newest corporate scandal, investigators said that employees at two food-processing giants, JBS and BRF, paid federal inspectors to ignore the adulteration or expiration of processed foods.

Inspectors also falsified sanitary permits, and bribes were channeled to the Brazilian Democratic Movement Party of President Michel Temer, according to the authorities.

Rafael Cortez, a political scientist at Tendências, a consultancy in São Paulo, called the meatpacking inquiry “one more element that will add to the picture of political instability.” Brazil’s political establishment was already reeling from an array of other graft cases.

The meatpacking investigation also casts doubt on Brazil’s agribusiness industry, a relatively resilient pillar of the nation’s weak economy. JBS is one of the world’s largest meat producers, with the United States chicken processor Pilgrim’s Pride among its foreign subsidiaries. BRF is a major exporter of meat to the Middle East and Asia.

Continue reading here.

See my tag ‘meatpackers’ for many more stories on the industry that once paid a decent salary and employed Americans.

You should know that then Senator Jeff Sessions (now Trump AG) called out meatpacking lobbyists behind the ‘Gang of Eight’ amnesty legislation in 2013, here.

Endnote: If you live in a state with a lot of meatpackers/refugee labor, be sure to investigate how much your elected officials are getting in campaign donations from the meat/poultry companies.

Refugees with low education levels needed for jobs like meatpacking

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 31, 2016

Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart yesterday analyzed the education levels of refugees arriving at record numbers in the US right now as Obama gets ready to vacate the White House.

cargill-somalis

Residents told me that Somalis working for Cargill have changed the town of Ft. Morgan, Colorado. Photo: http://madworldnews.com/colorado-biz-200-muslims-job/

Readers here know that I have been for years discussing the role that BIG MEAT plays in the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program and my 6,000 mile tour of America this past summer took me to several major meatpacking towns being changed by the influx of large numbers of Somalis to supply cheap labor to meat industry giants like JBS in Greeley, Colorado and Cargill in Ft. Morgan.

(I also visited meatpacking towns in Minnesota and North and South Dakota.)

Here is Leahy reporting on the fact that Somalis enter the US with the least education of any refugee group thus making them desirable employees for the beef and poultry industry (LOL! Not pork!).

Somalis are the least educated group of refugees who have arrived in the United States during the first three months of FY 2017.

As Breitbart News reported previously, the Obama administration has resettled 25,671 refugees in the country during the three month period beginning October 1, 2016 and ending December 30, 2016. This is almost double the number of refugees resettled in the United States during the same period in the prior fiscal year, FY 2016.

More than 85 percent of these refugees arrived from just eight countries: the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Burma, Ukraine, Bhutan, and Iran.

[….]

The levels of education of arriving refugees from these eight countries vary widely. More than 71 percent of refugees arriving from the Ukraine have achieved high school level or higher training (secondary, university, professional, or technical degrees). At the other end of the spectrum, less than nine percent of refugees from Somalia arrived with high school level or higher training.

[….]

Somalis, in particular, are heavily employed in the meat packing industry.

The consequence of the availability of low skill, low wage refugees to fill jobs in the meat packing and related industries has been to keep wages down and limit employment opportunities in those industries for low skilled American citizens living near those meat packing plants. The plants also need a steady supply of new healthy workers to replace the workers whose hands are eventually damaged by the rapid repetitive motions required in the high-speed, low-tech slaughterhouse line.

A number of communities have experienced this problem over the past decade, including Shelbyville, TennesseeLiberal, KansasFort Morgan, ColoradoAustin, Minnesota; and Grand Island, Nebraska.

It is an extensive report, continue reading here.

I have been told by readers over the years, and by some living in meatpacking towns, that meatpacking was a desirable job for Americans a couple of decades ago, but when these global corporations discovered immigrant (cheap!) labor all that changed.  Refugees supplement their wages with your welfare subsidies!

Greeley, CO: Refugee advocate worries about backlash against Somalis

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 30, 2016

Earlier I posted a news round-up of stories on the Somali refugee slasher, see it here.  Then I mentioned there are three (at least) other news stories I wanted to spend more time on.  I posted the first of those here.

And, this is the next one, from the Greeley Tribune.  The story is not about how citizens of Greeley are worried about an Islam-inspired attack there, but whether the Ohio State attack might cause some Americans to say nasty things about Somalis in Greeley. Sheesh.

jbs-greeley

I took this photo of JBS (previously Swift & Co) headquarters in Greeley, CO on my tour of meatpackers of America this past summer. JBS is a Brazilian-owned company. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JBS_USA

Before I tell you the news from Greeley, know that we have an extensive archive on Greeley here at RRW going back years.

Greeley has a Somali refugee population because one of the largest FOREIGN-OWNED meatpackers (JBS) has lured them there to fill the company’s need for cheap legal immigrant labor.

Think about it! A foreign company gets to tap into cheap refugee labor (subsidized by welfare) and change your town forever!

Greeley Tribune (emphasis is mine):

After hearing of the attack at Ohio State University on Monday, Global Refugee Center Executive Director Erich Strehl’s first thoughts were for the victims. [Sure!—ed] Eleven were injured when Somali-born student Abdul Razak Ali Artan drove his car into students and then stabbed many others.

But Strehl’s mind quickly turned [I bet it did!—ed] to Artan’s Somalian heritage and the impact that could have on the community he serves in Greeley, a community already on edge after a contentious election season.

“I thought it was an unfortunate event to have happened at any time, but particularly now with the way things are in the United States with refugees and the program that resettles them,” Strehl said.

erichstrehl-gdt

Erich Strehl of the Global Refugee Center in Greeley shills for BIG MEAT. Does he understand that? http://www.grccolorado.org/

[….]

For the past several years, 100-200 Somalian refugees have taken up residence in Greeley. After a period of time, refugees are no longer tracked, free to go anywhere just like any American, Strehl said. So pinpointing an exact number of Somalian refugees in Greeley or Evans at any one time is difficult. There’s no indication any Somalian-born residents in northern Colorado have violent intentions, as the Ohio State student did. Strehl said attacks like the one at Ohio State serve to terrorize those in the Somali-American community as much as any other American. [The Islamist terrorist at Ohio State had shown no violent intentions either before he went on the murderous rampage on Monday!—ed]

“If anyone gets reprisal outside of the localized incident it would be those who have similarities to the individual carrying it out,” Strehl said.

Although Strehl hasn’t heard specifically of verbal or physical attacks against local Somalian refugees, he knows there is uncertainty and concern in the community. It was that way when Donald Trump became president-elect, particularly among Muslim refugees.

“The concern has only been heightened, particularly in this last attack,” Strehl said.

[….]

“We did communicate with local police and even the FBI,” Strehl said. “There didn’t seem to be any known threat against refugees here.”

This last is about making sure that they firmly implant the idea that the victims here are Somali refugees!

When you visit our Greeley archive, don’t miss Greeley’s role in the formation of radical Islamic thinking! As they populate Greeley you can be sure the Islamic supremacist thinkers get a great chuckle out of that fact!

Also, we had written so much about Greeley and Swift a number of years ago, we had a separate category just for the on-going controversy there—-the epicenter of conflicts over Muslim demands for special accommodation in the workplace.  Click here.

Number of Active TB cases in Colorado has gone up

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 12, 2016

No time to do this justice as I’m dashing out to appointments, but wanted to get this posted quickly…..

More news in Breitbart’s series on Tuberculosis in the US refugee population.  This is an update of previous information on Colorado. By the way, Colorado is a so-called Wilson Fish state, one of more than a dozen states where elected officials have virtually no say in how taxpayer money is expended on refugees there.

Hickenlooper at Davos

Colorado Gov. Hickenlooper: We love our refugees in Colorado! I wonder did he go to Davos to schmooze with the big international corporations backing the free flow of immigrant labor around the world? A little TB here and there shouldn’t stand in the way of making money! Right?

From Michael Patrick Leahy and just breaking on Drudge:

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment admits that sixteen refugees were diagnosed with active TB between 2011 and 2014.

The admission comes one month after Breitbart News reported ten recently arrived refugees in Colorado were diagnosed with active tuberculosis (TB). Between 2011 and 2014, 16 out of 7,754 refugees were diagnosed with active TB at the time of their initial medical screening.

[….]

Colorado is one of fourteen states that have withdrawn from the federal refugee resettlement program. Under the statutorily questionable Wilson Fish alternative program, the federal government has hired a voluntary agency (VOLAG) to run the program there.

Though Tennessee, another state that has withdrawn from the federal refugee resettlement program, is suing the federal government on Tenth Amendment grounds over the resettlement of refugees in the Volunteer State, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, is unlikely to add his state as a plaintiff in that lawsuit.

Continue reading here.

Are health care providers and volunteers who work with refugees being briefed on health threats from newly arrived refugees? That is what I want to know!

This is post number 313 in our health issues category.

More active TB cases in the refugee population, Colorado this time

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 14, 2016

If you haven’t been following the great investigative work that Breitbart reporter Michael Patrick Leahy is doing getting information to the public about the FACT that refugees are permitted entry into the US with Tuberculosis (and other communicable diseases), you should.

Cargill workers

The US State Department resettles Somalis and other African refugees in Colorado to satisfy BIG MEAT’s need for cheap labor. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2016/03/10/meatpackers-and-somali-workers-again-disrupt-small-town-life-in-america/

Islamic terror attacks understandably make the news, but in the long run the return of diseases (thought to be virtually non-existent) and the arrival of parasites into the US should cause you to lose sleep especially if you are in one of 200 plus ‘welcoming’ American towns and cities.

Who do you think will be paying for all of the healthcare?

Here is Leahy yesterday,

Ten of the approximately 8,000 refugees who were resettled in Colorado by the federal government between 2011 and 2015 were diagnosed with active tuberculosis shortly after their arrival, according to the Tuberculosis in Colorado: 2015 report published by the state’s Department of Public Health and Environment.

A number of other states have also reported refugees have arrived with active TB, as Breitbart News reported previously. Four refugees with active TB were resettled in Indiana in 2015, and eleven refugees with active TB were resettled in Florida in the three years from 2013 to 2015.

The recent increase in the number of active TB cases reported in the United States is driven by increases in the foreign born population with high rates of active and latent TB, as Breitbart News reported last week…

Go here to learn more.

And, visit our health issues category (you will find Leahy’s series there), it isn’t just diseases and assorted health problems you pay for, but you are also paying for mental health treatment.

One post from 2007 is definitely worth revisiting about a refugee worker dying with TB in a meatpacking plant, here.

Tone deaf in Colorado Springs! We welcome Syrian Muslim refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 23, 2016

Jasim Mohammed Ramadon

Ramadon, an Iraqi refugee, convicted in 2014 of brutal rape of Colorado Springs woman. Go here and follow links to Diana West’s indepth reporting: https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2014/01/24/iraqi-refugee-rapist-found-guilty-in-colorado-diana-west-reports-the-story-nationally/

Yesterday, within hours of the horrific Islamic terror attack in Brussels—a direct result of decades of “welcoming” immigration policy toward refugees, and migrants generally, from Muslim countries— citizens of Colorado Springs took to the streets to say they welcome Syrian mostly Muslim refugees to their city.

From The Gazette:

About 120 Colorado Springs residents rallied Tuesday on the steps of City Hall in support of refugees – especially Syrians – about 12 hours after deadly terrorist explosions ripped through the Brussels airport and subway.

Banners and speeches urging compassion and human kindness continued the community’s strong opposition to City Councilman Andres Pico’s March 7 proposal, “A Resolution Declaring Opposition to the Relocation of Refugees from the United States Refugee Resettlement Program to the City of Colorado Springs.”

Continue reading here and see the photos of the those rallying.

Just four words for the citizens of Colorado Springs with short memories:  Jasim Mohammed Hasin Ramadon.

Somalis in Ft. Morgan, CO say they can’t assimilate without a mosque

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 21, 2016

Huh?

(Why what Donald Trump says is resonating with voters!)

This is just one more story about Ft. Morgan, Colorado (we have been following their experiment with a growing Somali population for years, click here for our Ft. Morgan archive).  See also Leo Hohmann at WND on Friday—why are we still taking Somali refugees after three decades?

Cargill in Ft. Morgan

Cargill Inc. in Ft. Morgan is responsible for the influx of an estimated 1,200 Muslim Somalis to the small city in the northeast corner of Colorado. Photo: http://america.aljazeera.com/articles/2013/10/6/colorado-it-takesavillagetosettleimmigrantsfromafrica.html

Ft. Morgan has Somalis because it is a meatpacking town.  If they had no meat packer, there would be no Somalis clamoring for a mosque.

BIG Meat is changing the face of the American heartland!

From AP at the Santa Fe New Mexican:

FORT MORGAN, Colo. — For the last decade, Somali refugees have flocked to this conservative farm town on Colorado’s eastern plains. They’ve started a small halal mini-market and a restaurant, sent their children to the schools and worked at a meat processing plant run by Cargill Inc.

As much as Fort Morgan’s small town feel reminds many of their rural villages back home, some say they will feel like outsiders until they get what has so far eluded them: a permanent mosque. They are renting two small rooms for a makeshift version, for now.

They say they’ve tried to buy property to build a mosque but believe no one wants to sell to them.

“If we can own a mosque here, we will be more a part of the community,” said Abdinasser Ahmed, a local Somali leader and public schools teacher who fled war-torn Mogadishu, Somalia, in 2003, arrived in Fort Morgan in 2009 to work at the plant and is now a U.S. citizen.

Some longtime residents say they don’t want one in their city of 12,000, a step too far especially at a time when fears of terrorism have grown following the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, Calif.

Putting a mosque “right in the center of town” would be a symbol “as if to claim the town,” said Candace Loomis, who runs a coffee shop and whose grandparents settled this country of sweeping horizons in a two-room sod house.  [Loomis is right, the mosque will mark their Islamic territory.  That is what mosques are!—ed]

Continue reading here.  Montanans and Wyomingites pay attention!

If anyone was really serious about assimilation, it would require a moratorium on mass migration to America right now. Just as in the 1930s when America wisely closed the spigot to allow the masses already here to assimilate, we should be doing the same now (if anyone in leadership positions had guts).

In fact, if Republican leaders had ten years ago worked to close, or at least slow, immigration, instead of following the likes of Senator John McCain off a cliff, there would be no Donald Trump in 2016.

Meatpackers and Somali workers (again) disrupt small town life in America

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 10, 2016

This time it is the New York Times doing the story, but it is not new for us.  We told you about problems in Ft. Morgan, Colorado way back beginning in 2008, see our huge archive on Ft. Morgan by clicking here.

Editor’s note: There is so much going on these days and life has been interrupting my writing time, please follow my tweets (right hand side bar here at RRW) because when I do get time at the computer, I do try to keep up with the news by tweeting.  This NYT story is from a couple of days ago (I did tweet it then).

Back to Ft. Morgan…. 

I can’t resist repeating this little bit from a post I wrote on September 30, 2008 about the Ft. Morgan Times editorial excitedly inviting Somalis to town and calling out this blog!

Here is what I said:

Today [9/30/08] the Ft. Morgan Times has an editorial [original editorial is gone, so it’s a good thing I got it at the time! Found by reader Jeff, here—ed] entitled, “Refugees taking root in Ft. Morgan.”   I have read a lot of politically correct, diversity is beautiful, let’s all sing ‘kumbaya’ articles, but this one I’m going to print out and hang by my computer and wait for the day when something happens in Ft. Morgan, CO and I can refer to it again. [Needless to say much happened in Ft. Morgan, even an honor killing, since then!—ed]

Here is what the editor said about RRW (who else could it be!)

Of course, if it were up to some people, Somali refugees would not have a chance to resettle anywhere in the U.S. There is even a Web site devoted to teaching Americans how to chase refugees of various sorts out of town.

I’m going to encourage you to read the whole NYT story, click here, about the prayer break dispute at Cargill and the Somalis now packing up and leaving town.  This is the takeaway for you:

As the demographics of small-town America shift and more Muslim immigrants move in, it is a dynamic that is likely to play out again and again.

Why is the US still taking Somalis after three decades?

The US State Department and its contractors like the Lutherans in Colorado Springs, Greeley and Ft. Morgan, Colorado are still bringing Somalis to the US by the thousands. Exactly why they are still colonizing your towns with Somalis isn’t exactly clear.

Since Obama was elected to office, the US admitted 45,718 Somalis. Many of those came from refugee camps in Kenya, but we picked up thousands of others around the world (screening?).  Data here.

In that time frame (of the 45,718 admitted), Colorado got 1,412 of them while Minnesota got 6,037!  But, Somali refugees were resettled all over American and often move (they call it secondary migration) to be with THEIR people in other seed communities.

In the first five months of this fiscal year (2016) we have admitted 3,107 new Somalis.

This isn’t about humanitarianism, it’s about large global corporations wanting cheap immigrant labor and the US State Department and ‘religious’ groups like Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service acting as their head hunters.

Colorado Springs Councilman pounced upon for proposing refugee resolution

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 9, 2016

It is happening across the country, local city and county governments are passing resolutions in an attempt to gain at least information about who is being placed in their communities through the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program and the contractors hired by Washington to get them set up with their social services (aka welfare).

I’m coming in in the middle of this story where apparently Councilman Pico had already signaled his desire to promote a resolution for Colorado Springs.

Floyd Preston

Floyd Preston (left) is the program director for Lutheran Social Services/LSS Rocky Mountains. He says his agency has been named a “premier” resettlement contractor, but we are not told by whom! Photo: http://photos.blacktie-colorado.com/event/lfs-seeds-of-good-deeds/l1010563/

Lutherans doing the pouncing!

(See map we just posted, here, and see that the Lutherans monopolize the resettlement in Greeley and Colorado Springs).

Here is the news at The Gazette:

The furor over City Councilman Andres Pico’s proposal to “declare opposition” to relocating refugees to Colorado Springs continued Tuesday, with 10 people lambasting the idea, as others did Monday when Pico’s resolution was introduced.

Lutheran Family Services has welcomed refugees to the city since 1980, noted spokesman Floyd Preston. “We have been extremely successful at doing so; the Colorado Springs office has been named a premier (resettlement program).”

[….]

Vicki Witte said she has mentored refugee families. “Refugees are some of my closest friends. I’m sure they’ve taught me far more than I’ve taught them. Two things Mr. Pico really wants are notification and a good vetting system. Mr. Pico, those two things are already in place. You need not worry.”  [And, by the way, why does the US taxpayer bear responsibility for helping Ms. Witte find friends and learn things?—ed]

I will bet a buck that Councilman Pico has never been included in the advance preparation of the R & P Abstract that the Lutheran contractor prepares every year for Colorado Springs.  And, I’ll bet he has never even seen one—the refugee contractors have been instructed to not give this document to anyone! Secrecy is the watchword of this program!  The document will give notification about those to be placed in their towns.  More on Abstracts here.

At a minimum, Lutheran Family Services should turn over the FY2016 R & P Abstract and be willing to submit the planning process for FY2017 to public hearings held by the city council.

Since Colorado is a Wilson-Fish state…

…. Councilman Pico should be looking for support at the State level to encourage the state to be a plaintiff in a States’ Rights case being prepared by the Thomas More Law Center.  See one of many posts on Wilson-Fish here.  The gist of it is, in those states the refugee program is run (unconstitutionally) by a non-profit group like LSS and the feds thus eliminating any role for elected officials to protect the local and state taxpayers’ money going to programs to benefit refugees.

Go here for our archive on Colorado.  Grassroots activists should be looking to see which Colorado politicians are getting donations from companies (like meatpackers!) who are always on the hunt for cheap immigrant labor.  Do not be sidetracked by the ‘humanitarian’ propaganda (“seeds of good deeds”) surrounding this program!

US Refugee Admissions Program is secretive, elected officials are not given information

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 4, 2016

This is a subject we have talked about many times on these pages and it appears here again in a short story about the Obama Syrian refugee resettlement plan at Breitbart.

Greeley Co

I’ve been fascinated with the Somali Muslim colonization of Greeley, CO for years. So when I saw that a county commissioner there recently complained about the refugee program, I was reminded of this post I wrote almost two years ago: https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2014/04/21/if-sayyid-qutb-could-see-greeley-now/

Warner Todd Huston begins:

President Barack Obama has been quietly pushing new plans to bring thousands of additional Syrian refugees into the country, despite the concerns of state and county officials and the outrages committed by welfare-dependent migrants in Europe.

But, before I get to the important part, we posted the chart mentioned here last night (perhaps Breitbart is the original source of the chart?) about which cities received refugees in FY2015.

Huston says this:

A chart made earlier this year with information culled from the Refugee Processing Center, an agency of the U.S. Department of State, shows where Syrian refugees have already been placed in the U.S.  

That is not accurate.  It is a listing of all resettled refugees from all countries for FY2015. Syrians were only a tiny fraction.

Now this is the part of the Breitbart story that caught my eye!

A Greeley, CO county commissioner says they are not informed of arriving refugees! However, federal law says local governments must be consulted!  Yet, this is one of the most common complaints we hear—local elected officials and citizens generally are completely left out of the information loop.  Why? Because the contractors know that if they were completely open about what they are doing, people would object!

A lack of communication on the placement of migrants also exists. In Greeley, Colorado, Weld County Commissioner Sean Conway recently noted, “Many times we don’t even know that relocation is taking place until it’s going on.”

Visit this handy list and see that it is Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains (formerly ‘of Colorado’) that is resettling refugees in Greeley. I must say that the Lutherans are turning out to be among the most egregiously secretive of the federal contractors when it comes to being open and honest with local communities.

In fact it was this same agency that had hoped to open a new office in Casper, Wyoming whose leaders complained that the word got out to the public there prematurely before they could get their propaganda machine in place.  See post here almost two years ago.

Note to Commissioner Conway!

You have a right to something the contractors call an “R &P Abstract.”  We have written about this important planning document on many previous occasions.  So call up the Greeley office of Lutheran Family Services and demand the abstract for FY 2016.

It will tell you how many refugees they plan to drop off in Weld County this year and will list all the welfare/medical/educational goodies you have available in your community for the “new Americans.”

For new readers we have written extensively on Greeley, Somalis and meatpacking. Click here for years of background posts.  The Lutherans have been supplying local meatpackers with cheap immigrant laborers for years.

Is there a ‘Pocket of Resistance’ forming in Greeley?  I would like to know!
