Obviously you weren't listening closely. I'm paraphrasing here, but when Mary brought up "what if there aren't enough people willing to volunteer," he replied with "then we can look at the budget and consider buying a shuttle to pick up people to take them to vote." Burning down a school where children attended classes and housed many of the special needs students at the time is minor?…

Believe me, Adams County voters are not stupid. However they deserve to be educated. Jeff Scott (Jonathan Shonekase) will not be voted in as long as everyone knows the truth. I'm not sure why Jeffery Scott would think everyone has that short of a memory. Does anyone know of a free shuttle to Mexico? Siberia maybe? Anyone else willing to make a "donation" to send a shuttle to either place?

Farmers expected to take a hit on energy-related inputs

From cattlenetwork.com:

The Environmental Protection Agency’s latest greenhouse gas proposal will harm the nation’s economy, rural communities and America’s farm and ranch families if implemented, the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) president said.

The EPA’s attempt to impose a 30-percent reduction in carbon dioxide emissions on the nation’s power plants will lead to higher energy prices, AFBF contends. Farmers will face not just higher prices for electricity, but any energy-related input such as fertilizer. No rural business will be immune to higher costs in doing business, according to critics. Rural electric cooperatives that rely on old coal plants for cheap electricity will be especially hard hit.

The AFBF is only one of many dissenters to the EPA rule change plan. A union representing utility workers and others, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), made their own points against the EPA change with more detail than the AFBF.

“U.S. agriculture will pay more for energy and fertilizer under this plan, but the harm won’t stop there,” AFBF President Bob Stallman said. “Effects will especially hit home in rural America.”

The IBEW reported it is studying the lengthy rule on carbon emissions for existing facilities, but announced “our concerns with the EPA’s new rule are the same as we have expressed over past agency dictates—namely that the regulations focus solely on the environmental aspect of public policy at the expense of balancing our nation’s economic and energy needs.”

Consistent with the AFBF, the IBEW suggested that a balanced energy portfolio is the right approach at this time because renewable energy such as wind and solar are simply not ready to replace other fuel sources in meeting the demand for electrical power and will not be for the foreseeable future. The logical expectation would be for more natural gas electrical production in the short term. But IBEW contends, “Our nation has learned from bitter experience that relying too heavily on one energy source is not a sound policy.”
