Answer:  WASTE OF ENERGY

(Ah!  I see besides a Steuben County in Southwestern New York, which I am fairly familiar with, there is also one in Indiana.  They both have a landfill, and they both have a gas to energy program.  Hopefully, most landfills do.  It’s a great idea.  

There were no new clue words today, and only two of the jumbles came up as new.  They have used both “emaco” and “yegres” in the past.  I almost went “greesy” again, before remembering that it would be “greasy”.  The answer letter layout made for a beautiful jumble.  Great cartoon, showing the garbage trucks, the bulldozer, the gulls, gas collection pipes, the kids and the foreman.  It looks like the little girl brought her own bag of garbage!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    And I am familiar with the Indiana one
    and not the NY one. So are there “six degrees of separation” between one
    of the Jumble’s authors and one of the
    Steuben counties?

    Your guess is as good as mine, Damid. If there is, I’d bet on the one in Indiana. Neither one of the guys seems to have any roots in New York, but we do know that Jeff lives in Fishers, Indiana, which is in Hamilton County, I believe. — YUR

    Steuben County is home to Corning Glass Works….a very progressive county.

    They’ve been around quite a long time, and they have adapted to an ever changing world very nicely. A very well run company! Thanks, Ron!
