[tabi] Re: Employment of the Blind in Tallahassee and Surrounding Areas

Yes but not in my backyard.

I think I remember it being politically too close to FSU. That is FSU would bet the most benefit buy their power from the plant and not from the city.

Right, Chip, but perhaps I don't understand biomass plants, but I thought they could generate usable energy (methane).

Hi Darla,

my understanding about the biomass plant, and the reasons it failed, is that
mostly no one wanted it located near them, in case it was a big polluter.

Dear Chip,

Amen about ot bringing in industry that will pollute, but there is a lot of
brain power here, so this would seem to be a good location for software
development, think tanks, etc.etc.

Without gettting too political, I hope, why was the biomass plant nixed?

Hi Darla,

Sure; this kind of thing, where you're not going to get people really
fired up, is just fine.

We'd all like more jobs; however, I think you mentioned a really
important point: government is a much better employer of the disabled
(I believe), than private industry (that wasn't exactly your point I
know, but it's a related point).

If we all do things to bring in more jobs from private industry, I'm
not so sure the disabled community would benefit.  Of course,
Tallahassee and surrounds would benefit, so that benefits us.  Have to
be a little careful what we wish for however; don't want to end up
down-wind from a Cole-fired power plant, or a wood-pulp mill.

Chip

Surrounding Areas

Dear Joe,

I''ll have to wait for Chip's ruling on this, but I'll reiterate:
Tallahassee has to stop living off goverment jobs, though the state
has been better at hiring blind people than the county or city has
been, but there must be more diversity in employment which would,
hopefully, benefit everyone.
