    You need to remember where you came from, as well as being aware you’re headed to as you go through life, according to Indiana Farm Bureau 2nd Vice President Isabella Chism.
    Chism lives in Galveston (near Gas City in north central Indiana) with her husband Kent, and has three adult children. They raise corn and soybeans on their farm.
    Chism said that it takes three things to live the good life: persistence, patience, and pride in what you do.
    She asked the audience, “How many of you are activists?”
    Several people raised their hands, and she said, “Every one of you are activists. It means you’re out doing something.”
    Chism was born in Austria, and immigrated over to the United States with her parents when she was six years old. Her father had been a school teacher in Austria before they came over to the US.
    She said that whatever she has done in life or whatever has happened to her in life throughout the years, she truly believes that “every one of us has the seed to be what we are to be.”

County APC slates August 26 vote on proposed biomass-energy plant in Scottsburg PDF Print E-mail
Written by Marty Randall

    A special meeting of the Scott County Area Plan Commission (APC) has been scheduled for 6 p.m. on Wednesday, August 26, at the Courthouse.
    At this meeting, members of the APC will determine if a development plan submitted by Liberty Green Renewables L.LC. meets their approval. If approval of the plan is given, development of the proposed biomass-energy plant can go forward.
    Liberty Green partners have been working with Scottsburg officials and the Scott County Economic Development Corporation for several months. The site for the proposed plant is on some 44 acres accessed by U.S. Highway 31 South and just north of the city's newest water tower.
    Larry Ott and Terrance “Terry” Naulty, both partners in the venture, represented Liberty Green at both the Scott County Board of Zoning (BZA) appeals and the APC meeting that followed on Wednesday, August 12.
They offered an attractive package, explaining that the local plant will be called the Scottsburg Renewable Energy Center and will be similar to a plant they are developing in Crawford County near Milltown. Once up and working, the Scottsburg center will generate enough electrical power for about 20,000 homes by burning wood chips that will in turn heat water, changing it to steam to power a turbine. Liberty Green will then sell electricity generated on the Midwest power grid.
