Anti-ethanol group raising funds

Let me begin by saying that I have lived in the South Central Virginia region all my life. No one loves the natural beauty of the area any more than I do. That said, however, let me point out that the national unemployment rate is around 4.6% while the unemployment rate for this region is 9-10%. WE NEED JOBS!!!! It seems that most of the opposition to the Osage ethanol plant comes from people not native to this area. This is not the South of the Reconstruction. We did not need the Northern carpetbaggers coming into the South to take advantage of the people and the land then; and we do not need a group of Northern, retiree transplants to dictate what our land use plans should be now. We need to welcome the Osage plant with open arms and hopefully other industries will follow.  (Aug 8, 2007 | post #3)
