STANLEY, Wis. (AP) – A judge in Winnebago County has approved the sale of an ethanol plant in Oshkosh to a company in western Wisconsin.   Ace Ethanol of Stanley wants to buy the Utica Energy plant for $16 1/2 million. The deal must be approved by shareholders at a meeting later this month. If that happens, production could begin at the Oshkosh plant around harvest time.   WQOW-TV ( ) says the plant produces about 50 million gallons of ethanol a year. Ace Ethanol president Neal Kemmet says the Oshkosh plant will be renamed Fox River Valley Ethanol.
