Report trash on pathway

Would you be upset if someone left an old worn out mattress in your front yard? Recently we have been finding large and difficult to properly dispose of trash items along the shoulders and intersections of the Panhandle Pathway. These items include, but are not limited to, used tires, old mattresses, junk appliances, damaged furniture and clothing. These worthless items are difficult to move and expensive to dispose of properly.

We often have visitors to the Panhandle from out of state locations and we receive many positive comments about the beauty of our trail and the surrounding area. They express interest in coming back again to visit.

Please help us. If you see an item along the trail, please report it as soon as possible to the local authorities or notify the Panhandle Pathway through our website: panhandlepathway.org If you see someone dropping off trash, please take note and provide the specific time and location, vehicle description and, if possible, the license plate number.

WSP responds to Mayor Martin's statement 

Waelz Sustainable Products (“WSP”) issued the following statement in response to Logansport Mayor Chris Martin’s announcement that he would oppose the proposed Cass County zinc processing facility:

Mayor Martin decided to oppose the WSP facility — after saying on a number of occasions that he wouldn’t take a position given the proposal falls outside of his jurisdiction — without any engagement with our company. He did not ask us to meet, he didn’t ask us any questions and he did not request any information.

The WSP team would be happy to meet with the mayor at his convenience to share the facts about our proposal and address his questions to ensure he has all the relevant information to take a position.

WSP also stands ready to participate in-person at relevant public forums in Cass County as allowed during the COVID-19 restrictions. We are currently working with Cass County officials to schedule an in-person meeting, targeting late-May. In addition, we are responding to questions from individual citizens as they reach out to the company, and are looking at other means to share information and engage with the community during the current travel and meeting restrictions.

We want Cass County residents to have the facts and data about our project so they can make informed decisions for themselves.

For more information on the proposed facility or to ask questions directly of WSP representatives, please visit www.wspcasscounty.com

Logan gas prices still far above region

From my last Public Forum report a few weeks back, I thought it couldn't get any worse, but I was wrong.

On Friday, April 10 at 4 p.m., all but one gas station in Logansport blew surrounding towns away with their high priced gas. I couldn't believe Peru was in the mid $1.30s and Logan was 50 cents higher in the mid $1.80s. Since one Logan station was $1.47, I filled up in Logan — something I have not done in a long time.

I was surprised the station on Third Street didn't have a line a half mile long. I guess the word wasn't out, so I thought I would spread the word.

At www.indianagasprices.com, Indiana's average price was $1.55 and falling. Logansport had one station at $1.47 and 11 at $1.81-$1.86; Peru had nine at $1.32-$1.37; Kokomo had 13 at $1.41-$1.49; Royal Center had one at $1.49; Monticello had eight at $1.57-$159; Rochester had 10 at $1.59; Galveston had two at $1.65; Walton had one at $1.69 ...  even Royal Center was lower with one at $1.49! That surprised me because they're usually not far behind Logan.
