THE PRESIDENTIAL VISIT TO FRANKLIN COUNTY


A PRESIDENTIAL STROLL. Even the national press pool was surprised when the president, with Novozyme executives Thomas Nagy, left, and Steen Riisgard, right, took a lengthy walk from the lab area to the panel floor.


PANEL DISCUSSION. Dr. Kevin Wenger, research and development manager at Novozymes in Franklinton, left, and Novozymes North America President Thomas Nagy, center, share a light moment with President George Bush during a panel discussion on the use of alternative fuels.


CHEMICALLY SPEAKING. President George Bush gets a chemistry and biology lesson from Novozymes’ Mads Torry Smith on Thursday during a tour of a laboratory.





FUEL OF THE FUTURE? President George Bush, with Novo’s Garrett Screws, gets an up-close look at a race car that is operated on ethanol.



State Rep. Lucy Allen meets the president, who was entertaining in the biofuels’ panel discussion.




READY AND WAITING. Marines and Secret Service, and the motorcade, wait for the arrival of President George Bush.




TAKING A PEEK. The family of panelist Ryan Adolphson, director of the biomass pilot program at the University of Georgia, peeks out from behind a curtain as their father/husband wraps up a discussion with the president of the United States.






UP ON THE ROOFTOP. Security was primary. Shooters were in helicopters, at key entrance ways and on rooftops.

It's amazing how fast law enforcement can get all of this put together in a matter of days.

Not to mention Embarq,they were given short notice and had no broadband facilities available at novo.But within three days the President and the press had all the broadband services they needed.Everyone really came together to make the President's visit a success.

Does anyone know why Novozymes (formerly Novo Nordisc -- probably misspelled) chose their location outside of Franklinton over any other place in the U.S.?
February 25, 2007 at 6:00pm
because the president wanted to meet possum pace.

I say did Miss Lucy let those Novo people see if her snails helped with fuel?
