Another article details a settlement agreement with Puget Sound Energy, one of the owners of some units at Colstrip:

"The town of Colstrip could receive a minimum of $10 million to aid economic impact from the closure of two electricity generating units at a coal-fire power plant under a settlement agreement filed Friday with the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission, Attorney General Tim Fox said.

The deal involves units owned by the Washington utility Puget Sound Energy. It was part of an electricity rate case filed in January by Puget Sound Energy, a part owner of all four units at the Colstrip facility, Fox said."

Colstrip will make a wonderful retirement community. Once they get natural gas piped there. Water will the be the Big cost. The rest of us will see our electric bills get sky high. The reality is the Colstrip plants are at about at their life cycle. A lot of great jobs while they lasted. But hey, I can get by burning wood and coal for heat. Propane and kerosene lights.Go back to diesl driven irragation pumps, A country boy can survive. But the carbin foot print won't be smaller.
Hummm maybe write a book..Call it WHAT HAPPENED!

I'm sure it'll make another great compound for whichever flavor of 'sovereign citizen' nabs it.

As for the answer to your last question... I'm going with 'Head Trauma'.
