It is good that you received a number. Although it is decent there is most likely some stretch in the offer. The company could have given you a loaded question such as "What salary do you expect?"
Learn about the benefits and be willing to trade if the salary is your priority.

Some pipeline operators will expropriate the space for the ROW. Read about eminent domain.
Natural gas, CO2, and hydrocarbons fall into this category. Other pipelines do not and are worth more to the landowner.
Best to negotiate renewable terms based on the CPI. (Consumer Price Index)

The 2002 relay teams improved from yours. Are you aware that Barbe HS still holds the Class 5A record in the 4x100? The time is 40.78 and it has not been challenged. JV, Murphy, BMill,& Ivan. Augustine subbed for Murphy in the 4x200 and Barbe won easily in 1:26.34

Very well stated.
I have most likely seen those young men participate in more games than almost any one that reads this board. Had both of them been injury-free Barbe HS would have won the state championship in football also.
No doubt that they will continue to be valued by their teammates at all ...
