Jesus said to an angry mob intent on stoning an adulteress woman, “Anyone who has no sin in their life should step forward and throw the first stone” (John 8:7).
A reminder to avoid judging others when there are faults in your own life that need to be addressed.
It’s time our leaders made hard decisions
Retired Army Col. Danny McKnight wrote a book about his experiences as battalion commander of the 3rd Ranger Battalion in Mogadishu in October 1993, better known as “Black Hawk Down.” The book is titled “The Streets of Mogadishu, Leadership at its Best and Political Correctness at its Worst.” In the book he looks at the “easy wrong decisions” and the “hard right decisions” and how they affected his mission on the ground.
Today we see the easy wrong decisions made by our political leaders on every level. The wind farm issue has been one of the biggest easy wrong decisions ever made in this county.
The Board of Commissioners continues to make decisions based on what a few want, despite the overwhelming worldwide evidence that wind farms are not healthy or safe for populated areas. It’s very simple. The majority of the county and those who border our county do not want wind farms near their homes. Make the hard right decision and say no.
At the BOC meeting last week, commissioners failed again to make the hard right decision and fill all the vacancies on the Plan Commission. They filled one spot with a person who is obviously pro-wind.
That’s fine, now put someone on the board who has a different opinion. This will balance out the board and give a fairer representation of the county.
I do not know any of the individuals presented for the positions well enough to say one is more qualified than the other. What are the qualifications for a seat on the Plan Commission? Is it someone with a willingness to vote my way or someone with knowledge of construction, zoning laws, vision for the future and common sense?
