Boulder-based Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp.'s $4.1 million expansion of its manufacturing plant in Westminster will help it to add stealth capabilities to the F-35 fighter jet. Right now, Ball has 100 workers on the project. That number will increase to 400 at full production. Ball's contract is for $677.2 million.
Radio slugs and writers and others as well in Denver love to and continually refer to Boulder as "The people's republic of Boulder". Yup that they do and some snicker when they say it.
Yes what can I say? I'd like to see these 400 "jobs" not be in the perpetual war field but something like Sustainable Agriculture. You betcha that would work.
