Sept. 2, 2013: Letters to the editor

Performance set stage for litigation

As I sat at the Tipton County BZA meeting Wednesday, and I was appalled at the way the lawyer for juwi talked to our BZA members and by the accusations made.

I am so proud of the way Mr. Acres handled himself. He never lost his cool, and saved the integrity of the BZA board.

In my opinion, juwi did not come with a property value guarantee at all. Its lawyer tried to run the show and do things her way by trying to get things thrown out that the BZA set forth. Shame on you and your group for acting the way you did.

You were trying to get Mr. Acres to slip up and make mistakes. You were trying to discredit the board. We could tell you were just setting the stage for litigation.

Now, to change the tune a bit: A friend stopped by and wanted to tell me she had been to a lady’s house in the Wildcat Wind Farm. E.ON had been there. She called them because of the noise and the shadow of a turbine on her TV.

E.ON just painted the wall and moved the furniture around to get rid of it, which it didn’t, and she called again. This time E.ON painted the whole living room, moved pictures off the wall, moved the TV to another place, and cleaned the carpet. What the heck?

Should this person, who is elderly, go through this just to live in her home? The problem is still not fixed. And Tipton County still wants to add more wind farms? When does it end?

Commissioners, we put faith in you

“I wish I had great faith.” These are the words almost every Christian has said at one time or another. But faith is like a muscle, which must be exercised in order to become strong; just wishing cannot make it happen.
