READERS: I URGE everyone to read the ‘Feature Article’ I posted last week (scroll down) titled “37 U.S. Senators Call on EPA to Stand Tough on Renewal Fuel Standard” (scroll down to find the article). There is NO doubt that the lobbyists for the corn farmers and ethanol plants are working hard to push Senators to NOT repeal the Renewal Fuel Standard. If we do NOT push our States U.S. Senators and Representatives to REPEAL the RFS, we will lose this battle. I URGE everyone to e-mail your States Representative and Senators and URGE them to support and vote FOR the “Renewal Fuel Standard Reform Act of 2015” which would REPEAL the RFS. E-mail them at least weekly.
NOTE: NO new article today as was very late getting home at son’s after attending grandaughter’s high school graduation party in Atlanta area.

Here’s how (the NRA is the most powerful and influential):
* * * WEBSITE NEWS * * *
I have resumed my update of our website’s Louisiana ethanol free gas list. As I indicted when I began this considerable effort, I will update the list on the website when I am completed. This is a VERY time consuming effort, so bear with me.
I finished Livingston Parish (going alphabetically), and am now working on Orleans Parish. I had stopped working on the gas list update during the peak of football season. I will resume working on the list later this week.

Today I posted a baseball sports article by Ross Dellenger of The Advocate Blog Network titled “LSU with Five on All-SEC First Team, Including Freshman RHP Alex Lange“. The SEC baseball awards were announced today and LSU has FIVE on the All-SEC First Team, plus one on the second team and four on the SEC Defensive team! ALSO, LSU Coach Paul Mainieri was named ‘Coach of the Year’!
LSU WITH FIVE ON ALL-SEC FIRST TEAM, INCLUDING FRESHMAN RHP ALEX LANGE
By Ross Dellenger – The Advocate Blog Network – May 18, 2015
Half of LSU’s starting lineup is All-Southeastern Conference, and so is its No. 2 pitcher.
Catcher Kade Scivicque, outfielder Andrew Stevenson, third baseman Conner Hale, shortstop Alex Bregman and freshman starter Alex Lange made the All-SEC first team released Monday.
Paul Mainieri was named SEC Coach of the Year, and Lange is the fifth LSU player to be named SEC Freshman of the Year. It’s the 14th time an LSU coach was named to that honor and the second for Mainieri.
LSU’s five players on the first team is the most of any other team, out-distancing Arkansas’ two. The teams are voted on by league coaches.
First baseman Chris Chinea, and his team-leading 11 home runs, made the second team All-SEC, and Mark Laird, Scivicque, Bregman and Stevenson landed on the All-SEC Defensive Team.
Arkansas’ Andrew Benintendi was named the SEC Player of the Year and Vanderbilt’s Carson Fulmer is the SEC Pitcher of the Year.
Lange, a Missouri native, grabbed an All-SEC honor in his rookie season. He capped a 10-0 regular season with a nine-strikeout performance in a start at Missouri on Saturday. He’s just one of five LSU freshman pitchers to reach a 10-0 mark. He finished the regular season – 13 starts – with a 2.11 ERA and struck out 91 to 35 walks, helping the Tigers secure a 16th SEC championship in program history.
Bregman, a projected top-10 first round pick in June’s MLB draft, picked up his third All-SEC honor in three years. Bregman, batting .329 with a .977 fielding percentage, made second team last year and first team as a freshman.
Scivicque is batting .363 with five home runs. He’s made the 20-man cut for the Johnny Bench Award, given to the nation’s best college catcher, and is a semifinalist for the Dick Howser Trophy, an award for the top college baseball players.
The speedy Stevenson is known most for his diving web gems in center field, but he’s stolen 22 of 28 bases and is hitting .360. Hale is hitting .363 and has made just six errors in 53 games – most of them at the hot corner.
* NEW CHANGES TO ETHANOL FREE GAS LIST *
We removed ONE ethanol FREE location in Louisiana recently:
United Food Store, 3500 Airline Hwy, Metairie, LA – store closed and for sale.
Thanks for Mr. Williams for letting me know.
We added ONE new ethanol FREE location in Louisiana recently:
James Truck Center, 221 Taylor Road, DeRidder, Beauregard Parish, 337-462-8884 – Thanks to the Store owner for letting me know.
NOTE: If any reader locates a store that is selling ethanol FREE gas but is not on our list, PLEASE send me the information asked for on the “Ethanol Facts” page so we can add it to the list!
We encourage all readers to patronize retailers who sell ethanol FREE gas. If they are not profitable selling EO, they may convert to sell ethanol gas and stores with EO will become harder and harder to find. ——————————————————————————————————-
Have a GREAT week readers!
