Well, it's on now. May God protect our kids because our BOE members don't seem to want to...I don't guess I'll ever understand. One day though, this BOE well have to face up to the music and suffer the consequences of their stupid decisions in purchasing such a rediculous, remote, undesired and controversial piece of property.

Don't know much about those plants except their dangerous and can have lasting effects on everyone not just the kids of this county. We can't help where nuclear plants are at but just hope that it never has an accident but we can sure do something about the location of the new school in relation to range fuels. That I do know.

Nuclear Energy is by far one of the safest and most regulated forms of energy on earth. As opposed to ethanol and petroleum refineries, which have a proven track record for danger

Thats right,like all the drugs on the street.There are a lot of kids in Soperton hung up on pain killers. Illegal drugs such as coke,marijuana are not just the problem any more.

I have seen firsthand how prescription medication and alcohol abuse can kill and destroy lives. Watching a loved one destroy themselves with alcohol and pills is a terrible thing to experience.

Noticing that most comments on this topic mention the school, in addition to Range Fuels production, how about the school site preparation continuing until all the earth is moved? Then turn the land over to the development authority as an industrial site. Struggle on with the schools for a year or two until the economy rebounds, and then do a makeover on all three existing campuses.

I agree! Things are so bad right now! We need people with some common sense! We could hold out til the economy is better for everyone! And we need to rethink the location!

For a couple of million dollars, all of our school buildings can be put in perfect condition.$24 million is a lot of money. It's best to wait until January for the new governor to reallocate the funds. Repair the buildings of a dozen systems instead of accommodating one county which was given a political plum.
Just looking at the whole picture.

Most schools use temporary class rooms during construction or renovations. There are a couple behind the elementary school now.

AGAIN...get over it! There are plants all over the world and the world hasn't come to an end. Maybe this plant will bring new, decent people into this community. Stop bitching...nothing you can do about it

You can't promote it both ways. Either the plant is distinctive and first in the world or there are plants like it all over the world. Which is it?

Since this topic has generalized into the plant and the school, consider this possibility (not necessarily the truth, but a real possibility): It will require adequate sewage treatment as Range Fuels grows, and that will be expensive, but if we can come up with a ruse like a new school in a strategic place, the local taxpayer can pay for water and sewage lines right past the plant, so the plant can tap in for free. Just a thought, a possibility, not necessarily what's happening. Not necessarily. Not necessarily.

There are ethanol plants "all over the world" made from many different feed stocks, mainly corm. This is the first plant in the world to use pine chips.

Is good to see that maybe in the future, petrol will not get wasted being used as fuel.
It is so important for many other industries: http://www.green-energy-planet.com/how-does-a...

Maybe the first to use chips of southern pine, but not the first to use wood chips.
