Tiny Montana firm hired to rebuild Puerto Rico's power grid

Whitefish's largest prior federal contract gave the company $1.3 million to replace 4.8 miles of transmission line in Arizona.

The decision to award such a big contract - and such an enormous challenge - to a tiny company founded just two years ago has surprised many.

Now lawmakers want more scrutiny.

Philadelphia is not just a pleasant city in southeastern Pennsylvania. It has a $300 million contract, but it has only two employees. Ares moved to the U.S.in the early 1990s. "So much of it depends on their president and this president (Donald Trump) is - unique at best would be a polite way of putting it".

"This doesn't pass the smell test", Rep. Luis Gutierriez, a Democrat from Illinois said.

"Threats received by @WhitefishEnergy". Montana newspaper Flathead Beacon called it "a windfall for the relatively untested" company.

Williams suggested that anyone who undergoes regular pain treatment check with his or her doctor before going to the next appointment.

Sean Murnan said he's not sure how long the Comfort will remain on station. Whitefish Energy rep Ken Luce says Techmanski had been in touch with PREPA during Hurricane Irma. Three dogs were transferred to the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region, and 13 were transferred to Pueblo Animal Services. "Our top goal is to treat all patients in a safe and appropriate manner, and we are doing our best to mitigate any impact on our patients' care".

Maegan is the daughter of Russ and Priscilla Reid of Sicamous.

On Wednesday, Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosello asked John Roth, inspector general of the Department of Homeland Security to also review the contract. Zinke has admitted he knows the company's CEO, although Zinke claims he had no role in brokering the contract.

The event runs from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday at the Salvation Army's community center on Douglas Avenue.

The firm plans to charge Uncle Stupid more than $300 an hour for a subcontracted lineman and $462 an hour for a subcontracted supervisor.

American Airlines is accepting a limited number of pets per flight as checked baggage, and United is transporting animals through its PetSafe program.

By Wednesday afternoon, the situation got heated on social media.

A spokesman for Whitefish told a Washington state paper that the company is uniquely experienced in working with rugged, mountainous areas like Puerto Rico where helicopters and 100-foot ladders will be used.

But when Williams went to UNC Hospitals last week, she was told there was a shortage of both supplies and was given a different medication.

"You have a small, untested power company going in to help a desperate, bankrupt utility", says Ferris.

"We're trying to make it so they do have some room, allowing them to have that space", said Barnett. Zinke's office described Whitefish as a "small town" with a population of roughly 6,000 people.

One of HBC's board members is a Republican donor named Joe Colonnetta.
