If you folks think this company is going to build a plant there with 1,400 jobs, there is some swamp land in Florida that I want to sell.
Ask yourselves, how can a company with no track record, shady dealings and no financial statements, build five different $150 million recycling plans at the same time during a recession.
The fact of the matter is that Okmulgee officials did not do any "due diligence" on this company and have been conned by Internet Ponzi Schemers. Ask yourself, why as the Oklahoma Department of Commerce taken down all the information about this company from its Web site.
This is so embarrasing that your city economic development officials did not investigate these con artists.

What progress has been made? The site prep has begun in Manchester, KY but there are so many rumors going around about it being a scam that I don't know what to believe. What is actually going on in Okmulgee?

This is what I thought,Okmulgee city officials ought to be ashamed of misleading the public.Or do a better job of investagating projects.There were few representatives ready to take credit for this. So where are you know.The public deserves an apology.

There's been no tax-payers money spent on any of this, undisclosed or otherwise.
Everyone keeps saying this is a scam, but I don't see how. They've received no money from the city,county or residents in any way. They only get to keep the land if they fulfill their obligations on building a plant and employing a minimum number of people. Someone please explain to me how this is a scam.
They've received NO MONEY from anyone locally on this. This whole scam nonsense is coming from disgruntled ex-employees.
Yes, it is taking a while to get started and I'm sure it's frustrating to everyone, but please have some patience. I don't believe construction has started on this and it will take a while to build and get ramped up to full production, but this is the first facility of it's kind anywhere. It's not a big surprise that it's going to take a while to get all the bugs worked out.
My understanding is that the average rate of pay will be around 32K a year. Everything will be sorted and processed inside buildings, so there will be no smell.
This is going to be huge for the entire county, please stop slinging mud at people that are trying to help us out.

Check out what they have done in Manchester, KY. The whole scheme fell apart! We were supposed to be the first and site preparation actually started here but work stopped and nothing has been done since back around April. They used our newspaper articles to try to con investors - that seems to be what's in it for WNT. If they have some kind of proof of these projects being a reality it makes it easier to milk investors. Look at the info that is out there on WNT and the individuals involved, look at the feasibility of recycling 95% of municipal waste in a profitable manner and then decide whether there is any possibility of this actually happening. Don't give them more ammunition to milk investors with! Think about the story Bennett tells about the 2 night vision from God - at least that's what he told us here in Manchester. If God had decided to communicate with someone here on Earth about a supernatural method of recycling, I think he would have chosen someone with a better track record of honesty and straight dealing than Mr. Bennett has displayed.

Being Green

Checking out at the store, the young cashier suggested to the older woman, that she should bring her own grocery bags because plastic bags weren't good for the environment.

The woman apologized and explained, "We didn't have this green thing back in my earlier days."

The young clerk responded, "That's our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment for future generations."

She was right -- our generation didn't have the green thing in its day.

Back then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. So they really were recycled.

But we didn't have the green thing back in our day.

Grocery stores bagged our groceries in brown paper bags, that we reused for numerous things, most memorable besides household garbage bags, was the use of brown paper bags as book covers for our schoolbooks. This was to ensure that public property,(the books provided for our use by the school) was not defaced by our scribblings. Then we were able to personalize our books on the brown paper bags.

But too bad we didn't do the green thing back then.

We walked up stairs, because we didn't have an escalator in every store and office building. We walked to the grocery store and didn't climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time we had to go two blocks.

But she was right. We didn't have the green thing in our day.

Back then, we washed the baby's diapers because we didn't have the throwaway kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy-gobbling machine burning up 220 volts -- wind and solar power really did dry our clothes back in our early days. Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing.

But that young lady is right; we didn't have the green thing back in our day.

Back then, we had one TV, or radio, in the house -- not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief (remember them?), not a screen the size of the state of Montana. In the kitchen, we blended and stirred by hand because we didn't have electric machines to do everything for us. When we packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, we used wadded up old newspapers to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap. Back then, we didn't fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn. We used a push mower that ran on human power. We exercised by working so we didn't need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity.

But she's right; we didn't have the green thing back then.

We drank from a fountain when we were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time we had a drink of water. We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and we replaced the razor blades in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull.

But we didn't have the green thing back then.

Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to school or walked instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi service. We had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And we didn't need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 23,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest burger joint.

But isn't it sad the current generation laments how wasteful we old folks were just because we didn't have the green thing back then?

Please forward this on to another selfish old person who needs a lesson in conservation from a smartass young person...

We don't like being old in the first place, so it doesn't take much to piss us off.

This plant is for real. Okmulgee just issued building permits for construction and State Senator Roger Ballenger issued the final approval this morning at the Town hall meeting held at the Tribal Complex with Bob Hardridge Officiating.
