Many new food fuel and energy announcements this week

The best way to energize me is with some good food! There are many new food and dining options in this week's Around the State business announcements, along with many new energy-related (in the conventional sense) projects.

First, the food:

Shigezo Izakaya Japanese restaurant opened in southwest Portland. Neighborhood Notes, 11/16/2010

opened in Cornelius. It offers ribs, chicken, and sausages. The Oregonian, 11/2/2010

Kozy Kitchen restaurant opened in Florence. The World, 11/13/2010

Miller's Discount Grocery will open in Madras. The Madras Pioneer, 11/11/2010

Cherry City Cafe will open in Salem. Statesman Journal, 11/16/2010

The energy-related projects are pretty impressive too:

Nevada Geothermal Power Inc. and Ormat Nevada Inc. will begin construction later this month on the first phase of a $120-million geothermal plant at Lake County's Crump Geyser near the community of Adel. The plant is expected to generate up to 30 megawatts of power and is scheduled to be in service before the end of 2013. It will employ more than a dozen people. Herald and News, 11/15/2010

HM3 plans to break ground in the spring on a plant in Prineville that will manufacture briquettes made from woody biomass. It will employ 50 people. Central Oregonian, 11/12/2010
