    Just a couple of random quotes about an ethanol plant to be built here in Fayetteville.

    A Seattle company called E85 Inc. plans to build a plant north of Fayetteville that will produce 100 million gallons of ethanol each year.


    Phyllis Owens, an executive vice president with the Cumberland County Business Council, helped orchestrate the deal.


    The Business Council is a private, nonprofit business recruiter that gets subsidies from local taxpayers.


    The incentives include $875,000 that Cumberland County commissioners have been asked to spend toward buying the land. The commissioners likely will hold a public hearing Jan. 16.


    E85 has an option to buy the land from Dr. Franklin Clark, a local developer and a charter member of the Cumberland County Business Council.

    That’s a sweet deal! He negotiates with the county for “incentives” for the company who in turn buy the land from him.
