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.

Best regards,

    You are still on the email list; there has been no traffic.
    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).

    Until then,
