MANVERS TOWNSHIP – A predominately angry mob greeted proponents of the Settlers Landing and Snowy Ridge wind parks Thursday night, finding fault with the meeting and heckling speakers.

Disturbed they had to sign in, wear name tags and that it was being videotaped, some refused to sign or wear tags and blocked their faces. Some charged through security and confronted police. They were also enraged that they had to write their questions on index cards for a moderator to read. One even asked how they knew the company hadn’t thrown the questions away and supplied their own. They also complained when the gymnasium’s seats were filled to capacity and not everyone could get in, at one point attempting to charge through side doors.

The ugly scene left one employee of the proponents shaking and in tears. One resident then approached her and said: “How do you think we feel.”
