Theresa Vaughn of Tipton sends this Cheer to four members of the Tipton County Plan Commission:
“I would like to thank the four members of the Tipton County Plan Commission for stepping up and doing what the majority of Tipton County residents have been asking for: voting for a total ban on all further wind development in Tipton County.
“Although the vote to ban industrial wind turbines was a tie, it was not a loss.
“More than 75 percent of the public that chose to speak at the Oct. 16 meeting were against further wind development and most asked the commission to rewrite the wind language to include an all-out ban. One gentleman even presented the commission with 500 signatures on a petition asking for a complete ban.
“Once again, some of the leaders of this county are not listening to the majority. It will be remembered at election time. And don’t for one minute think we will just forget this painful time in Tipton, every turn of the turbine blade will serve to remind us of who you are and how you voted.”
