Hi John,No, we have never heard back from Nick, and this case I assume no news is bad news. He didn't sound very hopeful about the administration's willingness. And, truth be told, the site was far from ideal. Our priorities include an indoor space large enough to store and process oil at room temperature, vehicle access, and a secure (lockable) area to store methanol. The FHHS site lacks all these things, and would require improvements to be made suitable (i.e. building sheds or other structures. I'm pretty sure that building structures on school property would bring in permit/liability/administrative red tape issues. Over all, I believe we will be better off pursuing another, more suitable site. I do, however, look forward to networking with Nick and the high school students involved in his program and hope our organization will be an asset to them once we are up and running.

Hi:I was involved with the meeting with Nick Frazee (sp) from FHHS who was going to approach the admin at the school about the possibility of piggy backing our initiative with what they already have underway there. Did we hear anything back on that possibility.

Basically, we are back to square one with looking for a suitable site. I am talking to different community members, hoping for a lead. Grisha is out of town for a number of weeks, and since there are no members aside from Rosa and Grisha and I who have put any time energy into participating in SJ Biofuels, there has been no need to send out any emails. Rest assured, if our situation changes or we have any updates or meetings, and email notice will be sent out promptly. If anybody on the list has any suggestions for a site, I'd love to hear them. Our ideal site is a (somewhat) central location, has power and water, an indoor space large enough to store and handle large quantities of veggie oil, and doesn't need major structural improvements (we have a limited budget for site prep).
