The refinery 3 miles from my house makes diesel, and that bean processing plant will provide the feedstock. The refinery is also making a conversion to produce bio-diesel. The local railroad got a $40,000,000 grant to upgrade their rail lines too, to accommodate the extra rail car traffic. The people that come from out of state to do the work will need a place to stay. That's where I fit in with my rental houses.
    Sounds like a win for you, lot of workers will be in there for that. In the area near where I grew up a huge corn ethanol plant was put in a decade ago. So now the farmers in that region are hard and heavy on corn, amending soil as needed to maximize yield and probably reducing crop rotation to the extent possible. An ex girlfriends family lives really close to the new refinery (like "country" neighbors), it stinks. A few years back they had a fire in the railyard and rail cars started to BLEVE. They were picking up axels and train wheels 1/4 mile away, some of them landing in fields near interstate I80. Imagine driving down the road and chunks of train car start raining from the sky

    IIRC fire department tried shooting some foam before just getting back and letting it finish on its own. Rural area w/out the means to handle something of that magnitude.

    We used to ride motorcycles in rural Illinois. Imagine a clear blue sky and it was raining corn husks. The husks were floating a few thousand feet in the air and slowly spiraling down. Someone was harvesting corn miles away and the wind was carrying away the husks.

    Been there myself. Also had a pheasant jump up as I was zipping across a field full tilt on a 125 motocross bike. Hit me in the chest and nearly knocked me off the bike. Had a bruised chest/sternum. Glad it wasn't a turkey. I'm pretty cautious now on my adventure bike in areas where deer could be.

    Biggest thing I hit was a huge dragonfly at 65 mph with my forehead. This was along the Mississippi, and that dragonfly was about the size of a sparrow.

    We need a law against foreigners buying stationary property in the US. Asian countries have this law. Also, foreigners should not be allowed to buy stocks of US companies. We need a law saying they all have 5 years to sell.

    They should only be able to buy transportable commodities.
