TROOP SPACE WEBSITE

 

Three guys from Effingham are making it easier to get in touch with soldiers on base in the U.S and overseas. We checked out the website and talked to co-creator TJ Hodges. He said troopspace.net is a free website like myspace or facebook, but it is dedicated to the troops. The website allows you to upload pictures, send messages and keep in touch with soldiers on base in the U.S. and overseas. This is a free service offered on www.troopspace.net

NATIONAL SAFETY AWARENESS MONTH

 

September is National Campus Safety Awareness Month. Now until Sept. 14th, Greenville College, along with the Greenville Police Department, will promote traffic and pedestrian safety. The Greenville Police Department will increase patrols around the Greenville College Campus in an effort to slow people down. In upcoming weeks, attention will be focused on fire safety, theft prevention, personal safety, dating, sexual violence and emergency responses to incidents on the Greenville College Campus. This year, at least 350 schools nationwide will participate in this program.


ETHANOL PLANT GRANT

 

Governor Blagojevich announced Tuesday that Abengoa Bioenergy, of Illinois LLC in Madison County, has received a $4 million Renewable Fuels Development grant to help build a new $200 million-plus ethanol production facility in Southwest Illinois.  The bio-refinery will support the Governor’s drive for energy independence and will create over 60 new permanent jobs as well as 250 construction jobs.  The Governor says by investing in ethanol and other renewable fuels, we are increasing our energy independence, creating jobs and helping secure Illinois’ future. He also says the ethanol plant will use less energy while producing less carbon emissions and will be one of the cleanest and most efficient facilities in the country.

 

The new facility will be an 88 million gallon per year ethanol production facility, located in Madison, Illinois.
