Osage is a Truck Delivering company... Osage has NEVER built or operated an ethanol plant. They may know how to run a fleet of trucks but they have yet to run an ethanol plant.

Bobby Lockridge was the president of Craddock-Terry Shoe Corp. for 40 years. He was a multi millionaire and had plants all over Virginia and employed thousands of people. He never stitched a shoe nor layed 1 brick. It's called sub contracting. You have the vision, you invest the money, you go out and hire an engineer with the exact qualifications to build it and run it. For example, how many Doctors ever built a hospital? How many Admirals ever built an aircraft carrier? You have any better arguments Roxy? The ones you're using now are pretty lame.

how about a real testimony from a person lives close to the ethanol plant, seems to me all the promises given to us are the same ones she received and failed...

Wow, how selfish! If she really fears how harmful this is why would she make her poor elderly mother endure such a situation? I think she's trying to hurry her mother to glory! If mom is living with her then she should make the right decision regardless of what mom wants. ELDER ABUSER! Seriously, I can't say there will be 0 drawbacks for a few individuals. But I see more benifits to the town and county. When you get right down to it, that's what it's all about: the mass not the individual.
