Thank God the folks down in Waltonville have far more common sense than the dolts up in Blissville Twp. At least the ethanol plant is seen as what it is :AN OPPORTUNITY, and so are the 350-400 permanent jobs the Blissville plant will provide, not to mention the construction jobs, the better roads, additional tax revenue( that won't have to come out of THEIR pockets later), and the dignity of actually embracing progress, instead of what a man named Kujawa said" WE got jobs." Well, Mr. Kujawa, not EVERYONE has a good job in Jefferson County and I am personally happy yours makes you so independently wealthy that you can tell someone who might want something better that waiting tables to hold their breath until YOU get yours..... Your attitudes anger and hurt anyone who loves Mt. Vernon and Jefferson County. Why don't YOU move and sell your country home to someone who wants to work and help others to do better in the process. You selfish little man..........

Amen! I have family living in the Waltonville area. Once the mines closed, what's left? Thank God there's an industry that can move in. You're right, Jim, why should young ppl stick around when there are no opportunities for decent jobs (I didn't). Plus, ethanol will only continue to grow as an industry. Hoo-ray!

They need to do somthing. I hope its the locals who get trained and hired to work there. Nothing there since the mines closed. I moved away from the area a long time ago too.Unless you have a farm there is no hope of finding anything around there. Maybe I would come back if things were better.

Hi All,

I really think its coming. This week a friend asked me if I was ready to come see Waltonville. He told me funding would be in place soon and then it will be all go from there. Big deals take time but after talking about this for more than a year I am starting to believe. Oh and it will mean jobs...good ones. I promise.

Hope to see you all soon. By the way I am on facebook and would love to meet some of you before I get there.

Sincerely,
jb
