Crossville Councilmen stand up to say ‘No’ to Crab Orchard Wind  

Credit:  By JAY MCCARTHY, For The Vista | June 16th, 2016 | vistanewspaper.com ~~

Common Sense – the ability to understand, perceive and judge things.

Sound practical judgment that is based on knowledge, training or the like native intelligence.

Recently, at the same time almost that Cumberland Mountain Preservation Coalition was having its bi-monthly meeting, something happened that shocked Crossville.

Councilman Wyatt, Councilman Kerley and Mayor pro tem Harris exhibited something rarely seen anymore in the political world; common sense.

They examined all the facts carefully, looked at the effects of Crab Orchard wind farm and said NO, loud and clear and then ask all the Cumberland County Commissioners along with the Mayor to join them in rejecting this project.

Councilman Kerley commented during the vote that everyone he had spoken to about the Wind Farm was opposed to this project and commented this project would only hurt Crossville and Fairfield Glade in the long run.

Good for them! They have common sense, folks. Add them to the list of opposers that include our Senator Lamar Alexander, and congresswoman Diane Black.

Meanwhile, the Cumberland Mountain Preservation Coalition has looked closely at the Board of Director’s survey presented to Glade residents and questions come to mind:

What do you call a survey that ask questions from its residents that approximately 70% don’t have a view of the mountains that will be affected by the Industrial Wind Farm?

What do you call a survey that asks for money from residents who have been told by a Wind Farm Company that none of them will be exposed to health problems ?

What do you call a survey that limits answers to one response instead of all the above?

How about calling it “a big risk”?

The Cumberland Mountain Preservation Coalition has had one goal all along. Stop the Wind Farm.

We set out to do this by doing an extensive amount of research and fact gathering from sources around the globe. We also obtained first hand information from interviewing medical people involved with patients who are suffering from the effects of the turbines that were located in their community.

What we found time and time again was that the impacts were always the same … real people suffered, real property values went down, real wildlife was killed whenever these turbines were operating – and, yes, the companies that build these wind farms really don’t care about the communities that they destroy.

You ask how did we arrive at this conclusion?

Common Sense!
