Kilgore's Dirty Bill
Delegate Terry Kilgore (R-Gate City) has a dirty bill (HB1300) that will strip the Virginia Air Pollution Control Board critical authority to clean up our air. Under the current law, the Board can decide whether to require large polluters to make actual reductions in NOx and SO2 pollutants or allow trading of pollution credits outside the community where the pollution is being generated. This bill would deny the Air Board the authority to require actual pollution reductions.
HB1300 is currently in the Senate Agriculture, Conservation, and Natural Resources Committee. Please contact committee members and urge them to vote No on this dirty bill. More information and an easy-to-use contact link is found at the Virginia Chapter of the Sierra Club.
Below is my first post on Coarse Cracked Corn. It remains a good description of what's happening. I look forward to your comments, but really don't give a cluck if you agree, disagree, or want to chop the chicken's head off. Most of this pecking around is just me crowing.
Coarse cracked corn is chicken feed - 8% protein, 2.50% fat, and 2.75% fiber. Good stuff made at mills right here in the Shenandoah Valley around 1900. Coarse Cracked Corn, the blog, will be a little like that - pecking around at history, news, and current events in the region. A little grain in, lots of manure out, eggs for breakfast, and a chicken in every pot.
I have no idea where this blog will go or how fast it will get there. Time will tell.
