ABSTRACT
This article looks at the town of Yuma, Colorado which is betting its future on ethanol. Farmers continue to plant corn and feed cattle while work goes on at the first of two multimillion dollar corn-ethanol plants they helped pay for that could make Yuma one of the more vibrant alternative fuel production centers in the Western U.S. However, the future of ethanol as an alternative fuel is not a sure thing which makes the investment of $250 million a gamble.
