Oct. 31, 2013: Letters to the editor

Ban wind turbines, Tipton Co. officials

Elected officials of Tipton County:

Your leadership is needed. We have all learned a great deal about the falsities of wind energy at a lightning pace. You have been inundated with emails, voicemails and public outcry at many public venues to stop the industrialization and indeed the fleecing of our county. You cannot ignore the large numbers of opponents who have been present since our first “enlightenment” in October of 2012.

My family and I have lost friends and people whom I considered family over this divisive issue. This community is being ripped apart. There is nothing left of my community except the solace of my home. If turbines come they will have taken that, too, and I will be forced to leave.

Juwi has shown us the measure of its resolve. It will stop at nothing in its attempts to blight our county. In its attempts to deceive us, it has succeeded in awakening in all of us a newfound respect for the political process, that the wants of the few will not be the reality of all. It is time for you to answer.

This country is a republic. As such, we have placed our trust in you. This is why we elected you, so that you will act on our behalf. You have seen and heard where the majority voice originates. We ask that you do everything within your power to intercede on our behalf. Be the voice for the majority! We are asking you to get industrial wind turbines out of our county! Repeal the WECS!

How will Tipton’scommissioners vote?

With all of the confusion, motions, discussions and interruptions at the Oct. 16 Plan Commission meeting, I was reminded of an event that took place in the House of Representatives when they passed Obamacare.
