Molasses spill causes big stink in San Saba

By Alice Smith
 
The J.C. Smith Co. unfortunately had a corn molasses spill that was out of their control. The liquid molasses comes to San Saba by rail car and their company takes tanker trucks and transfers it to their storage tanks. The spill has been cleaned up and all residue was captured in a holding tank. It is a non-toxic, non-hazmat animal feed.
