    That would be great. I know our town has locked in on $39 per ton. I called yesterday and they did not have prices out yet.

    I'd prefer you "like" me, not quote me. It gives a certain sasquatch a level of insecurity.

    I thought it sounded too good to be true but thats what I heard. Maybe thats the summer price and the first of september it goes back up.
