Challenger beats incumbent in GOP council primary; Redweik defeats Rains by 372 votes

In a race whose candidates were divided over a proposed wind turbine project, the challenger for a Cass County Council seat defeated the incumbent in Tuesday’s Republican primary. David Redweik’s 1,142 votes topped Phil Rains’ 770 in the GOP contest for Cass County Council District 1. Redweik said he was a little apprehensive throughout the evening but excited after the final tally came in. “I think my wife was a little more excited than I was,” he said with a . . .

Fulton County landowner gives warnings on wind turbines

I am a Fulton County landowner who had the opportunity to sign a lease for wind turbines and said, “No.” Quietly, at first, but with more conviction as time went on. Ultimately, it is up to your community and county officials to decide whether or not to host industrial wind turbines. No one can make that choice for you, but I want to share with you some of our experiences over the past 12 months with the same wind company . . . Complete story »

Judge mulls motion to dismiss wind lawsuit; Indiana Attorney General sides with Cass County

A Cass County judge says he’ll decide by the end of the week whether to grant a request to dismiss a lawsuit over the county’s wind energy ordinance. John L. Baker and Mike Gingrich, both northern Cass County agricultural landowners, filed the lawsuit against the Cass County commissioners in Cass Circuit Court in January. Cass County’s wind energy conversion systems ordinance requires commercial wind turbines to be at least 1,000 feet from residences. Baker and Gingrich argue the rule prevents . . . Complete story »

Are we still committed to ‘things good?’

It is with great frustration and disappointment that I sit back at my computer and draft this column. I previously sent the Cass County Commissioners a letter urging them to consider changing the current Cass County Wind Energy Conversion System (WECS) Ordinance. I had prepared to take time off work to attend the May 1, 2018 meeting in hopes of being given the opportunity to share for two minutes during the public comments portion of the meeting. However, that meeting . . . Complete story »

Scout Clean Energy outlines plan for 52-turbine wind farm in Jay Co.

It’s safe to say few minds were changed. Scout Clean Energy hosted an open house Tuesday at the Jay Community Center to outline its plans for a 52-turbine wind farm in Jefferson and Richland townships. And opponents of the wind farm – roughly 50 percent of the 100 or so people on hand – were there to make their voices heard. “We just want to make our presence known, that we’re not giving up,” said Jeff Birsfield, one of the leaders of . . .

Turbines would ruin planned move to Cass Co.

My husband and I are not residents of Cass County but do own a home and property in Bethlehem Township. My husband loves this area – his parents, grandparents and great-grandparents were all raised here. So in 2014, after my husband’s mother passed, we decided to purchase his family’s home from his siblings. As it was quite dated, we invested our time and a great deal of money remodeling. We are now retired and had planned to move to Cass County. . . . Complete story »

Wind talkers; Opponents make voices heard during Scout informational event

It’s safe to say few minds were changed.

Deception, perception influence opinion

April Retherford’s accounting of her experience living in the midst of a Tipton County windfarm is a personal story. It is not representative of everyone’s experience. Perhaps receiving annual payments from the wind company can greatly enhance one’s personal contentment, and greatly shift the focus off of any ill effects related to living close to a wind turbine. A simple search will show that the Retherfords have a tower on their property and thus are being paid. Not everyone in . . . Complete story »

Wind farms don’t make good sense on many levels

People who use the phrase “homes served” to describe the output from wind turbines do not understand facts about wind turbines. The concept of “homes served” has been used by the proposed wind farm to explain electricity output. This has always been misleading since residential users of electricity account for only 37 percent of all U.S. electricity produced. “Homes served” can be useful when talking about reliable generating power plants that produce electricity for customers every day, at all hours . . .

Not everyone wins with wind

Much has been said lately about Cass County’s proposed industrial wind turbine project. Patricia Benedict’s public forum submission on April 17 has pushed me into writing this article. “Everyone wins with wind” is not correct. She states turbine leaseholders get paid and their neighbors do too. That looks like a win-win but is false. If a neighbor doesn’t sign a good neighbor contract they do not get paid. A neighbor that signs a good neighbor agreement is being compensated for . . . Complete story »
