Propagandists split county over turbines
I live in the Wildcat Wind Farm and want to address the “safety issues.”
Twenty years ago we suffered another act of God. An ice storm collapsed the high-tension power lines. Not just one or two, but all. Nobody from the other side of Tipton County was concerned for our safety then. It was never declared to be a danger for all of the citizens in Tipton County.
How ridiculous. They are far too heavy to do anything but fall straight down. Funny how nobody came into the next commissioners meeting and demanded Tipton County not have these “iron monstrosities.”
The blades of the turbines are so heavy that if a blade would be hit by lightning, it is going to fall straight down. Unless a person chooses to stand under them during a storm, nobody is at risk.
The Citizens for Responsible Development have created a poster child and a martyr named Mr. Walker. There are at least seven houses near him. If it is so unbearable, why are they not miserable as well? Unlike the letter writers in the paper, I do live in his neighborhood, and I do know the reality of living here.
The windmills are not endangering the lives of the citizens of Tipton County and should not be shut down. We cannot afford the legal consequences this would bring. The county should stand up to the bullying tactics of a small minority.
It seems to me that it isn’t the windmills that have ripped this county apart, but the CRD and those who continuously spout false and misleading propaganda against them.
Desperately seeking change in Tipton Co.
Tipton County desperately requires new leadership from the bully pulpit idiocracy currently comprising two-thirds of the county commissioners.
