This poster has Written Time after time "I work WHEN I WANT to work" "My education has afforded me the position to work when I please" NOW They say: "Not as many as I would like since they frequently clash with my work schedule." Once again proving- Just an Educated IDIOT spoutin off NONSENCE- KNOWIN nothin. Most LIKELY NEVER BEEN to a Meetin! UNLESS!, as Some of us have ALWAYS thought: They are an Elected official in here REALLY actin stupid!

response type #4, rant. And basically a duplicate one at that. Your blood pressure must really be high today.

I never said "I work when I want to work". That is just your flawed and overly simplistic interpretation. Frequently I am at a customer's site at the times most city or county council meetings are held. For a public institution they don't go out of their way to make these meetings easy to attend for normal hard working folk like myself. Only nosy busybodies and farmers with too much time on their hands have the time/money to lose by attending every meeting. All so they can grumble and bitch about it on a internet message forum.

Oh I cannot wait for the truth to come out once and for all. This whole case is about someone trying to get money out of the city. Do you always believe everythng you read? C'mon now there are two sides to every story.

If money is what this is about....she would have taken the money the city offered instead of putting herself thru all this!

Aren't you glad that you provided this building to them for just a lease?
If you'd made them buy it, remodel it, pay to have the utilities moved, bought all of the land for parking, tore down the bldgs on the purchased land,and greased the machine of the local political scene, you would have been a part of the 75 million dollar debt.
But it looks like the cost of tuition will be going up over the next five years and the republicans aren't particularly interested in helping them out. Instead they are making some demands about graduation rates increasing.
Wonder why our republicans didn't make some demands themselves???
If the tuition were to rise as speculated by the media, will our community dwellers be able to afford the school pricing???

The bigger question is will the have extra finances available to support the downtown vendors?

Let this ol Guy fill ya all in on a NEW bit of Info fer the Bunch in yer Fair City. Commissioner Weaver was ASK ta visit a PIP meetin. Sooooo he kindly accepted. When he GOT there he was GANGED up on by McCheese, Stan Smith, Shan(the man)Sheridan and the (invisible but vocally there) Alan Dunn. THIS my friends was ALL about the Fact that the Commissioners are NOT all that in Favor of Wind Mills in and about Clinton County. In the LAST few Commissioner meetings they have talked about the BAD issues with windmills - NOT just the issue of Farmers (Like DUNN) makin money regardless of HOW MUCH noice they make and how much ICE they Throw in the Winter. That bunch of Possee really GAVE it ta Weaver and I guess told him ta tell Evans the Same. The question THIS ol Guy has is: What the hatees business is it of PIP ta be bossin around the County? Stan Smith needs ta tend his OWN fences since he is President of Frankfort Economic Development AND Clinton County Development Association, Bought the ol Bowling Alley in HIS name (or at least signed the PAPERWORK in his name) and sold it ta ccda for 20 bucks so ALL of Frankfort Economic Development can take that dough off their individual Income taxes. THEN he is the Contractor for IVY Tech. Think ol STAN needs ta Back off and stop tryin ta run EVERYthin and leave somethin ta Mccheese and His goons fer the city. And LEAVE our COUNTY to the BIG BOYS! Evans and Weaver has done JUST Fine! Boyles is ok- Still alittle wet but he is doin ok!
Just leave the COUNTY to the COUNTY!

This is REGULAR people talkin about what Windmills did ta THEIR lives! It's NOT always about the money!

Is there a written transcript or a video of the contact with Tipton county farmers? Are we supposed to take you at your word?

How much have you been offered from a firm to build a windmill(s) on your substantial land holdings?

The main concern with turbines/farm ground is earthworms. In Benton county, on medium soils, if you lose some of the earthworm population it's not going to be a big deal. However, in heavy soils that get compacted after rainfall found in Clinton, and expecially Tipton Counties, it's a completely different story. You reduce/eliminate the earthworm population then root systems cannot get oxygen and either die or get smaller. End result=25-50% yield loss, or more, during the 30 year span of the turbine. BTW earthworm loss is due to turbine vibration. Drives them out of the ground where they die. Risk: Great farm ground reduced to TRASH!! Not for me!!

I agree that windmills are dangerous and the only people wanting them are the ones that will benefit and get rich. I've seen videos and read up on them and seen some of the horrors that they create in communities. Mayor McBarnes needs to worry about the city and let the commissioners run the county..he's getting a little too big for his pritches! I am sooo disappointed in him and to think I supported him! I have never met such a lying, 2 faced, egotistical person in my life. I digress....anyways windmills are a totally bad idea and if it does happen I pity the neighboring homes that have to see the shadows of these monster passing through their homes. The people wanting them are supposed to be good Christian people...well I think they are hippocrits and could care less about their neighbors. It's all about the bottom line of getting rich. Last I heard the landowner would receive in the neighborhood of $100,000 per windmill? Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure how why they want them.

Question for you: Do you really think the big farmers in the area are trying to get "richer" off a projected income of 12K/year off each turbine? I am curious about how you would answer this.
