Elected officials should not cower to a vocal minority who enjoy being “CAVE” (citizens against virtually everything) residents (thank you, Mayor Goodnight). If you want to stop windmills, make trash to electricity viable. Oh, wait, that will stink. Make changing animal waste into electricity affordable, as you all seem to want the rural landscape preserved.
We all have to live on this planet, and I would prefer to not have to wear a breathing mask while I am doing it.

What if no one bought gas 1 day?
Isn’t it amazing that every week you can count on gas going up 10 to 40 cents a gallon? They have started to vary the days, but the end result is still the same: The consumer eats the bear.
If the gas companies weren’t declaring such huge profits, it would be funny.
It would be sweet if just one day no one would buy gas, just to show the companies we can do without their product. Might make them think about us instead of profit.
Keep children safein mowing season
Recently, a 2-year-old Florida girl lost her feet when her father backed over her with the riding lawn mower. We read about many such accidents during the mowing season. These accidents can be avoided by following these safety tips.
Be sure the yard is free from objects that could become projectiles. Objects can travel up to 200 mph after leaving the discharge chute. The discharge chute is equipped with a protective guard or deflector to stop objects from becoming projectiles. The deflector should always be in place.
Do not mow in an area where young children are playing. They may not understand the dangers of the mower, and the operator may not be able to hear them approaching the machine. Always look behind the mower before backing up. A small child can easily be hidden by the mower.
