"Indiana isn't known for its progressive ways**. But if the BioTown project in the small town of Reynolds is a success, that could soon change." By Neal Taflinger
INtake earth dude

"With one stoplight and a BP gas station -- the only gas station in town -- Reynolds boasts roughly 500 people and two active rail systems where SR 43 and US 24 meet. In this agricultural community, 150,000 hogs roam within 15 miles of town on any given day."

"Reynolds is also the centerpiece of Indiana's bioenergy initiative, a two-year experiment to make a rural Hoosier town completely self-sufficient when it comes to energy use. To accomplish this, such a town needs to possess the right mix of grain, oilseed and livestock production, a sufficient infrastructure and access to transportation and the state's research universities."


** 'earth dude' might not be invited to pig roast after that leader.

...whenever I travel to see my son and his family. Trust me - with those 150,000 hogs, if the wind's right, you know you're approaching Reynolds long before you get there. Wink

It's an interesting notion that they're trying up there, and credit goes to a Republican governor who has spent much of his first term not just thinking out of the box, but refusing to admit that there is a box. Mitch Daniels has also put Indiana's budget back in the black after 16 years of various forms of Democrat spendthriftism.

I now understand fully what he meant when he admitted to being "frustrated" in his previous job as head of the Federal Office of Management and Budget...
