How long did you have to pay for your property? Many of these were inherited. All you hear is money. Money is the flat truth of the issue for those who are seeking to cover this county with wind farms.
Why would I say such a thing? Let’s see, the proponents of wind will tell you they don’t believe wind farms will devalue our homes. All those who believe that, stand on your head.
Look at the Windfall fiasco. People living with noise above the set limits, people’s sleep being affected, cellphones disrupted, satellite TV disrupted, property values being affected. Sadly enough, when we ask for help for these people, our leaders are at a loss to help. So why would we ever even consider any more of this mess?
Thanks for those who have tried to protect our way of life and volunteered to serve on boards to try to represent all of the county. We need to understand, some have had their way so long you will never make them happy. Thank goodness they are the minority!
Let’s send wind out of here. Tipton County has paid the price ... may the healing begin.
These 2-sided issues are commonplace
The wind issue in Tipton County is no different than any two-sided issue facing many communities. There is always one side with a few sharing the financial gains, and the other side comprised of the common majority who are forced to give up their inalienable rights to those receiving the wealth.
A couple of current examples are Howard County citizens vs. E.ON and the Howard County commissioners. And in Morristown, a giant energy company is ready to build a power plant in the town of 1,200 people who are opposed to it. Lobbyists and environmental action groups receive their money from the companies needing help defeating the citizens who oppose them. It is always David vs. Goliath.
