Wichita-based Koch Pipeline Company is looking for shipping commitments from oil producers to use a proposed pipeline that would carry hundreds of thousands of barrels of crude oil.
Koch says oil shippers have until August 14 to solicit interest in the Dakota Express Pipeline.
The company believes the pipeline could be up and running by 2016 and would have the capacity to move 250 thousand barrels of crude daily. The line would move the crude oil from western North Dakota to Illinois.
Cathleen Schine's journey to becoming an author included brief stints in medieval history and shoe buying at Bloomingdale's. Not a likely trajectory toward a profession as a novelist, especially since she turned to writing as a fall-back career.
Joey Henry is a storyteller. For the past six years he has been traveling the country sharing stories as the banjo player and one of three singer-songwriters for the Kansas-based trio, The Calamity Cubes, along with bandmates Brook Blanche and Kody Oh. When not touring with The Cubes, he focuses on his solo project, Joey Henry's Dirty Sunshine Club and occasionally gets back to his indie roots by providing words and vocals for the Lawrence based Old Canes (Saddle Creek records) and “noise banjo” for the Kansas City based High Diving Ponies.
