The power of chicken poop!

Georgia will soon become known for more then it's peaches.

With construction taking place about 70 miles northeast of Atlanta, Georgia is gearing up for the arrival of the 'first poultry litter-to-energy' electricity plant.

Ya...that's right. Poop power.

The state will buy 20 megawatts (MW) of power from the Franklin County plant, which will be able to generate enough energy supply 15,000 homes.

See the REST!

How far would you go to help the environment? Are poop products pushing the limits on 'going green'?

In 2006, then-editor Steve Smith of The Spokesman-Review had the idea of starting a publication for an often forgotten audience: teenagers. The Vox Box was a continuation of the Vox, an all-student staffed newspaper published by The Spokesman-Review. High school student journalists who staffed the Vox made all content decisions as they learn about the trade of journalism. This blog's mission was to give students an opportunity to publish their voices. The Vox Box and the Vox wrapped up in June 2009, but you can follow former staffers' new blog at
