  • Ethanol Company Shows Interest in Cass County

    (Atlantic) A company has shown interest in locating an ethanol plant in Cass County. Atlantic City Administrator Doug Harris told the city council Wednesday night that he met with Nick Bowdish of REX Ethanol recently and discussed the proposed project that would be located at the “Amaizing Energy” site northwest of Atlantic if the company so chooses.

     

    Harris told the council that this is a competitive process and there are many pieces that must come together for a project of this magnitude to move forward. He says both parties will have to weigh the costs as well as the benefits to assure that this will be a win/win scenario for both affected parties.

     

    Based on the information they shared with Mayor Jones and Doug Harris relative to this project including; employment numbers, wage rates and valuations, Mayor Jones and Harris both agree the city of Atlantic would be supportive and interested in working with them on this project.

     

    Harris says the key issue is water which is a key resource for the plant as well as the community. He says that seven wells on the proposed site can produce 790 gallons per minute and the plant’s base load requirement is 850-to-1,000 gallons per minute with a peak demand of 1,200 gallons per minute. Harris admits there has been no hydrological study that has been done on this aquifer which also supplies AMU wells.

     

    “I have a sense that AMU has some concerns relative to the potential long range impact,” stated Harris. “However, if the plant returns 90 gallons per minute to the wastewater treatment plant that would enable the City to provide a minimum of 450 gallons per minute of gray water to the plant with an average flow of 625 gallons per minute. “

     

    Harris says it is his understanding that this represents 100-percent of the gray water that is currently being discharged into the river and that this would be enough to meet their needs and help alleviates AMU’s concern on a possible draw down of the aquifer.

     

    There are some other costs and stipulations that must be worked out before this company decides on a site. Harris noted Company officials are currently looking at other sites and Atlantic was just one of them.

  • A-H-S-T-W Fields an Experienced Football Team in 2014

    (Avoca) A-H-S-T-W is coming off  a very successful 2013 high school football campaign. They went undefeated during the regular season before suffering their only loss of the season in the Class 1A state semi-finals to West Lyon to finish the season at 12-1.  The Vikings return fifteen starters from that team.

     

    Head Coach Davis Pattee says he is fortunate to have an experienced group coming back; however leadership will be a key factor.

    The Vikings must also find a couple defensive linemen to replace Drew Young, third on the team in tackles last season and Nate Bauer.

     

    Coach Pattee says the linebacking core should be a little better than a year ago and the defensive backfield is experienced.

     

    The Vikings also return junior quarterback Nathan Herbst, who passed for 896-yards and rushed for other 921-yards a year ago as a sophomore.

     

    The Vikings held their intra-squad scrimmage Thursday night and open up against Audubon at home on August 29.
