Applications Being Accepted for Lignite Plant

Monday marked the first day for applications to be accepted for the construction phase of the lignite coal plant to be built in Kemper County.

The construction phase of the project could take an estimated 3 and a half to 4 years. Officials expect up to a thousand jobs will be involved in that.

Job applications for the lignite plant may be submitted at the WIN Job Center in DeKalb, which is temporarily stationed at the Farmer's Market, Highway 16 West.

Once renovations are finished, the WIN Job Center will move into the old Kingdom Kars location on Highway 16 West.

    To "whatever"--get over you attitude! You never know until you try! Get off your can and go apply! I am sure if you are qualified and willing to work you will have just as good a chance as anyone else. The negative attitudes of people like you are why we are where we are in Kemper County now! Thanks!

    The Lord's favor is upon Kemper County at this time. The Word says that no weapon formed against us shall prosper and every tongue that shall rise up against us in judgement, we shall prove wrong. Isaiah 54:17

    Do you really think they will hire people from here?? No.......! I am sure this is just a procedure they have to go through just like all the other procedures they have done so far to get the plant approved!
