I’m not so sure. I wonder if the effluent cloud of toxic emissions will rain down on Villages if wind is right. Do you really believe that the emissions from the stacks are healthy to inhale?

The emissions are converted into energy. That is the whole point. There's no smoke coming out of haystacks because all that burnt stuff is running through pipes connected to generators.

Waste to energy is an ecological dream come true.

Get ready. If we get letters for lawn ornaments, this could get you a no knock search warrant. You could end up on the 6 O’clock News.

Yes, of course.

Anyone else using up the clear recycle bags we had to buy? I'm using mine to empty the shredder until they're gone, then back to cheaper regular bags.

It's so hard to "unlearn" all of the recycling habits we've had for years and years! I feel as though I'm doing something wrong if I throw the newspaper (or yogurt containers, soda cans, etc) into the trash with other stuff!

Questions I will ask at the NSCUDD board meeting tomorrow ->

It bothers me that we will spend $1.5 million to provide a place for Jacobs for the next 23 years that has previously cost us nothing. I would prefer that Jacobs own and operate their own location as they see fit. So, I would ask other board members to express their feeling on this perceived necessity for NSCUDD to provide land and buildings and convince me that this is the correct way forward.

It’s expressed in the contract that Jacobs will make a onetime Capital Improvements of up to $1 million to this property. But, no minimum amount is expressed. I would ask Jacobs to give us more details on the projected amount they will be spending. Surely, they have a good estimated amount in mind.

I would ask staff a question about the maximum $50,000 per year that Jacobs may be spending on covering expenses for this land and buildings. As I have seen expenses rise in the two years I have been on this board, I would hate to see this board encumber future boards with large costs in future years out to the year 2043. I would like to see some escalation in what Jacobs will pay even if that means near term years will not see any rebate paid to us based on the $50,000 per year max amount to be paid by Jacobs. It seems to me that in the short term Jacobs payments are OK to cover expenses but for the long term future NSCUDD boards may incur having to pay a lot.

If you have additional questions that I should ask, please let me know.
