    Yellowstone Park Status

    EVERYBODY HELPS
    Gov. Employees Suffer
    bite out of profits

    ------- 
    .. Our neighbors are pitching in and helping with the dirty work during the government shutdown of Yellowstone National Park.
    .. Concessionaires have delegated employees to clean restrooms, gather and empty trash, groom trails, give information and conduct tours.
    LOCAL BUSINESSES PITCH IN
    .. Our local business community has risen to the challenge of continued operations and expanded services.  It's an additional burden for them. It is winter after all.
    .. Everyone is currently manning telephones and assisting visitors in the myriad ways that they expect from a winter trip to wonderland.
    .. A fund has been established by private citizens and local businesses to cover the discontinued government services . It costs the tour companies and motels and restaurants and other  concerns between $300 and $500 each, every day.

    .. Yes, even the neighbors are helping with traffic, snowmobile rider assistance, sidewalks, streets, trash receptacles, and other stuff.
    STREETS FOR SLEDS AND CARS
    .. We know that folks save money, (sometimes for years,) to visit us in the winter. It would be a real crime - a travesty - to be shut out of the park because of a bit of governmental intransigence.
    .. Even fishing is taking a back seat to helping visitors in this time of trial and tribulation. We're proud of our neighbors and appreciate their sacrifice of time and money.
