There is an honest way for supporters of a nationwide popular vote to eject the Electoral College, and that is to take away its accreditation by way of a constitutional amendment to repeal it. But that would take 2/3 of both houses of Congress and 3/4 of the states, and apparently that task gives opponents of the Electoral College the vapors.Much easier, they think, to perform an end-run on the US Constitution's amendment process through the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.Interstate compacts are for regional cooperation in governing the use of river water, for example, or in agreeing that if a nurse in one state passes that state's licensing requirements, other states will accept that nurse's license to practice.Interstate compacts are not for the purpose of subverting the US Constitution.I hate the Electoral College, it's antiquated and obsolete, in my opinion. But I don't support the NPVIC.If people think our politics are divisive now, just wait to see what happens if the NPVIC is adopted by 270 electoral votes' worth of states.So, call Governor Polis' office at 303-866-2471 and tell him to veto senate bill 19-042, the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. Be sure to mention the bill number! I do, however, like the idea of proportional electoral votes from each state. Winner-take-all is nowhere mentioned in any form in the US Constitution. Maine and Nebraska have the right idea.
Sloping tops: while most lockers have flat tops, some manufacturers offer the option of sloping tops to their range of lockers. The slope may be of either 30 degrees or 45 degrees to the horizontal, sloping towards the front, and the purpose of this is to make it impossible to store items on top of the lockers, or to make it harder for dust or other debris to accumulate there. This is an important factor in places like food-processing factories or restaurants where hygiene requirements must be met.
Wilderness Exchange is within walking distance of Union and they require you leave a bag with them when you go into the store, they may be willing to stash your bag for a few hours. No guarantee on that, but an option if you can't find anything else.

In schools without lockers, students are sometimes provided with two complete sets of textbooks, one set being kept at school for use in class, and the other being kept at home for referring to for homework, thus limiting the amount of heavy carrying that would otherwise be required without having lockers to store them in between classes. However, research has shown an increase in the incidence of back injuries in some students, which has been directly attributed to the lack of lockers for storing books in, thus forcing students to spend more time carrying heavy loads of books in backpacks.
Don't count on finding this kind of thing. Some silly people put bombs in there. Our Homeland Security people try to head those things off. In Europe, especially GB, you can't even find a trash can on the sidewalks for the same reason. A worker at the train station told us to just throw it on the floor, the people in the green jackets will pick it up. Really. What a world we live in.
