A new biodiesel rendering facility got off the ground in Klamath Falls last month. Green Fuels of Oregon is converting canola oil to biodiesel and feed for dairy cows. The plant will use geothermal-heated water for the production process and to heat the greenhouses for a sister company, Fresh Green Organic Gardens, next door. “I don’t know which is the side business, the greenhouses or the biodiesel,” says Rick Walsh, operations officer for both companies. The greenhouses will grow tomatoes, cucumbers and the greens for salad mixes, while the plant will produce about 1 million gallons of biodiesel annually. Each business will employ about 10 people.

As a general rule, the more people with autism can be provided with visual cues, the better they will be able to understand and manage their environment. It’s a lesson Tom Keating learned well. The 61-year-old Eugene grant writer spent 31 years taking care of his autistic brother James, and in the late 1980s developed a spreadsheet that created a series of nonsense characters that grew or shrank depending on how much money James had in his account.
