On the cover: The shops at Baker, Colorado are normally a busy place, but the pace has picked up today. You see, the date is July 3rd and if we don’t get all the work done today, then the crew won’t get the 4th off (as planned). And we wouldn’t want to miss all those backyard barbecues tomorrow! And with the weather picture-perfect, everyone is moving as fast as they can. See you at the celebration! You can find more details in Dennis Murphy’s Quick Tips, starting on page 18.
