Uncle Irvin: Money, yes; grants, no

Provided that the science will work and no public money is involved, New Garden Township should cooperate with E&H Conveyor to obtain grants to purchase an incinerator to turn mushroom substrate into renewable fuel.
New Garden supervisors said they intend to investigate the feasibility of the process with a consultant before they vote at the Sept. 28 public meeting. The company was specific that it was seeking township support to enhance the possibility of getting grant money and did not ask for public money.
Moreover, if this method to generate renewable fuel is practicable, investment money would start dropping from the sky, and spent manure might be $1 per pound and bring on a Klondike Gold Rush.
