      Thanks to everyone for participating in the WoodCrafts Show at Gray
      Fairgrounds Friday and Saturday. Displays were fabulous! The
      competition was hot on a cold day! Thanks for allowing the corn stove
      display to demonstrate the visual value added by wood.

      There was much interest in the affect of corn ethanol on the price of
      corn, food, and energy. Resources show that corn is primarily used by
      Pepsi & Coke (corn syrup) for drinks, cereals, sugar substitutes, and
      3000 other products. Some good resources are straight from the farm.
      Please reference the links below:

      Note US tariffs and US tax incentives help foreign petroleum oil
      compete with US corn energy, global corn ethanol, and global
      alternative energy:
      55 cents/gal US tariff on ethanol imports from Brazil
      51 cent/gal ethanol tax credit for blending with foreign oil

      Corn ethanol and corn syrup was valued at $1.50/gal for all recorded
      history until gasoline topped $1.50/gal. At the present time,Pepsi,
      Coke, and Big oil purchase Corn ethanol at $2.50/gal. Petroleum
      refineries collect 51c/gal blending tax credit. BP, Shell, Chevron, and
      Chevez Citgo sell gas blends at over $3/gallon at the pump. There is a
      55c/gal US tariff to prevent ethanol imports from Brazil unfairly
      competing with foreign petroleum imports.

      The Minnesota study results show that a 20% ethanol fuel blend E80 is
      compatable with all automobiles. Federal law and EPA mandates prevent
      E80 from becoming mandatory Minnesota law. Fuel prices drive the demand
      for ethanol blends. The pump price of fuel blends is reduced as a % of
      the ethanol blend, where available.

      Whole kernel shelled corn runs 100% in a corn stove. Some pellet
      stoves can blend corn with pellets. A corn stove should have the ID Fan
      Kit option to run on multiple fuel pellets.
