Value rural living? Time to stand up 

Credit:  Kokomo Tribune | February 19, 2013 | kokomotribune.com ~~

I would like to address all the citizens of Tipton County about the current fight to stop further construction of wind farms.

The wind farm companies try to sell you on the benefits, but in truth, the only ones to benefit are the small number of people (50) who have signed a lease. This is a relatively small number of people who are controlling the future of Tipton County.

Don’t believe the studies the wind companies have produced that your property values will not be affected. Several of the studies juwi cited don’t use the same data sets that are comparable to our area.

In two of the studies, the wind turbines are not placed in and around houses, as they will be here, but are set out and away from populated areas where there are no homes.

Some of you believe the rhetoric put forth by juwi that this will be a financial windfall for Tri-Central schools. Some are swayed by the promise of new jobs in the area. Some have been led to believe that there are no health or quality-of-life issues. I ask all of you to go to www.tiptonwindconcerns.com and find out the truth for yourself.

Join us in the fight against wind farms in Tipton County and attend a meeting at the Sharpsville Gym at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, and our chili supper fundraiser from 5-7 p.m. Thursday.

Our last chance to stop this is at the BZA meeting at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 25 at Tipton High School. I encourage everyone to attend and wear white, in support of stopping further construction of wind turbines.

If you value your rural lifestyle, you need to stand up now and be counted.

Otherwise, the whole of Tipton County will become one big wind farm.
