LETTERS: More Center Twp endorsements; Military Appreciation Month

Huff, Short, Zeigler for township board

In just a few short months, I will be leaving the township trustee’s office after 32 great years of service. It will be bittersweet, as I look forward to new opportunities and say goodbye to what I have tended to so carefully for so long.

There are three individuals who have announced their candidacy for Center Township Board and I officially endorse: Bill Huff, Georgia Zeigler and Charles Short. I believe these individuals will carry forward what is best for the township and the taxpayers. They are dedicated, forthright and sincere individuals.

Bill Huff has served as the Center Township attorney and knows the laws and regulations governing the administration of township government. I recommend Bill Huff highly.

Georgia Zeigler has been a Center Township board member for the past four years and has always acted and voted in the best interest of the township. Georgia Zeigler has my endorsement.

Charles Short is a long-standing Democrat who, as a school teacher, has dedicated his entire working career to helping people. Charles Short will make an excellent board member.

People worldwide suffer from turbines

In his recent letter, Kirk Retherford states it is not necessary to shut down the wind turbines in the Wildcat Wind Farm. E.ON documents list Mr. Retherford as a leaseholder. I can assume that a leaseholder derives income from a lease and the shutdown of the turbines would translate into lost income. I do not believe that safety or health issues, created by living in a wind farm, are his main area of concern.

I can remind Mr. Retherford and all those who derive income from wind energy that there are tens of thousands, or perhaps millions, of people worldwide who are suffering the same negative health effects that Mr. Walker is subjected to, on a daily basis, due to wind turbines. So is the real issue money or health?
