Has anyone spent any time with this solar lady that hit town? She is strange. Anyone know her story?

I have known the person you refer to as the Solar Lady for quite some time. Certainly, a lot longer than I have known you. If you want to learn more about her, take a look at the twelve-page Vitae on the website for the Kansas Solar Electric Co~operatives, Inc. To find out even more about her, I would highly recommend her book "ElectriCity BEYOND THE CURVE OF DEREGULATION" which was released on Earth Day in 2005. There are three hundred original excerpts in the 875-page book. She includes the first ten chapters in audio on the CD edition presently offered on E-Bay for $21. One can print out a copy of the book for a 3-ring notebook to study.
The Solar Lady is certainly not as strange as the strange condition which plagues the YC Historic Town Square. How is it that adults could trash shop fronts and refuse to pick up after themselves with no consideration for the potential damage to business in a community or state historic landmarks.
By the way before learning too much about the Nice Solar Lady ---you might want to learn a bit more about yourself and share it with the public.
That way we can better understand what you mean when you say something is 'strange'. What is your story ...?

NICE SOLAR LADY? Is that you?? LOL

Why are you always asking for money? If you are a college graduate why don't you have a job? Why do you think that anyone takes you seriously when you show up in Yates Center out of the blue and try to buy business buildings with NO money? I know the story on Betty Jo's old building.

I was at the auction that you bid up the price on over on State street. You have no job, no money and live on the streets. It might have been funny to see them haul you off for fraud if you had gotten that house.

You even approached me to tell me that you were running for county commission. Do you think people are that dumb?

I have to agree with you Wolf, she needs help. Linda and her dad had to throw her out of their building on the square because when they tried to work out a money deal, Eileen got nuts. Have you seen her brochure that she passed out? According to her, we are going to get a solar museum?????

With that kinda thinking why did she choose Yates Center? Greensburg is building with solar and it would make more sense. But then again, she doesn't make any sense.

Sounds like Wolf was answering his own post. The Solar Lady is weird, but it takes all kinds in the U.S.

If you want to converse with the Eileen M. Smith, M.Arch. who you call the Solar Lady --then write to her e-mail instead of spreading malicious rumors. Are you trying for the tabloids!
EileenMSmithMArch@yahoo.com
Are you generating paid advertising for Gwen Martin who is running against Eileen for a third term for Woodson County Commissioner 2nd District YC? Many of us are concerned Historic Courthouse Square will not survive four more years of neglect. If you notice most people ask for money when they are starting a new industry, redeveloping historic property and/or running for an office. How much are you raising to spread malicious rumors ...?
What is your REAL name? What do you do? Who is Craig and Linda Hatch and her Dad Mr. Blackwood to you? Mr. Blackwood owns the building next to Temple Theater on the YC Square. It has been closed 23 years. Eileen said she had been trying to purchase both buildings for ten years to establish the Town Square Cafe and Theater. If you want to read the business plan e-mail Eileen.
Linda and Craig Hatch live next door to Gwen Martin on Grove Street just down from Bob Gauldings. Gwen's drive way is aligned with Layman's mile long driveway across the street. It is my understanding Laymen's are now a rung above Gauldings in YC as oil typcoons.
Well, if you know anything about the energy industry, you might know how fossil fuel fools are a bit lazy when it comes to being honest and respectful of their counterparts that are working to bring renewable energy technologies into the market. It is easier and exercises their need for voyerism ---power!
When Eileen wanted a price for Blackwood's building, he put her off for over a year and then had his daughter Linda write Eileen to request a meeting to discuss a price and she said he intended to 'help' Eileen with her solar energy business. He wanted all of her contacts and details of her business plan so he would help her?
Well, Eileen ---being a seasoned business pro educated at KU asked for a brief letter of non-compete before discussing the Kansas Solar Electric Co~operatives, Inc. Mr. Blackwood came unglued and started jabbing his finger in her face and yelling at her. How dare she ask for a non-compete form where he was going to 'help' her. She had been talking to Mr. Blackwood for over five years about purchasing the two buildings. Eileen tried to calm him down, but he was putting on an act it seems. Fortunately, she is forgiving. She has written a wonderful program called "Woodson County Yates Center Historic Courthouse Square Cafe and Theater." If you want to see the development plan write and ask for it. There is a non-compete statement on every page.
If you just want to spread malicious rumors and cause her trouble to try and help Gwen Martin's handicap, then expect the worst. Malicious defamatory libel and slander are a crime in Kansas. This is your order to CEASE AND DESIST FURTHER DEFAMATORY SLANDEROUS AND LIBELOUS HARASSMENT OF Eileen M. Smith, M.Arch. which you have nicknamed 'solar lady' where such comments by cowards that refuse to identify themselves is frightening to her and damaging to Eileen's reputation causing irreparable harm.
Why not help Eileen's efforts by donating to her campaign or by becoming a Kansas Solar Electric Co~operatives, Inc. board member? Be productive!
If you want to read more about Eileen's work, go to E-bay and do a google search for "BEYOND THE CURVE OF DEREGULATION" to find her book "ElectriCity".
The strangest thing about Eileen today is the annonymous cowardly critics. Write your own book instead of cowardly stabbing her in the back during an election? Does that kitty have your tongue on that Mr. or Ms. Strange?

NOW I know you are crazy! Who writes in the third person when speaking about themselves? Who is helping Gwen Martin? You are,LOL! Speaking of libel, I think Linda Hatch should see what you wrote. Maybe I will give her a call.

Seems to me this is SLANDER and Libelous! Maybe I should call the Laymons and the Gauldings too! Can you go to jail or just be sued?

Where none of you are willing to state your own names in this Blog -but are putting slandering other people's names it amounts to nothing more than perverse cowardly attempts to harm others.

If it smells like **** it probably is. Slander is an easy charge to make especially when you know someone else is right. I agree with the post above, find a mirror.

Did anyone witness her all out rage on the Undersheriff? Solar Lady is in desperate need of a lot more than what Yates Center has to offer. Get on down the road already!

Paranoid would sum her up. Not good for an elected position when you work for the public.

Did you see the paper? She is having a rally at the bandstand. I don't get how anyone can blow in here and be in an election. Something's not right here.

What happened with the undersheriff?

Solar Lady needs medicated instead of running a campaign for county commissioner. If elected county commissioner, it would increase tourism in Yates Center and it would make Yates Center famous for electing the "first psycho homeless person as county commissioner" in the USA. Folks would come from miles around just to see her in commission meetings - maybe then she could afford to move out of her mini-storage unit housing complex. Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, and others would flock here! Think of the sales tax YC would collect from out of town Solar Lady-Generated tourism! YC could turn something negative (Solar Lady) into something positive (sales tax dollars). It would sort of be like the old horse and pony days, snake oil salesmen, and the traveling circus, because Solar Lady is one stupid comedy act after another.

Well, Eileen ---being a seasoned business pro educated at KU
If I'm not mistaken Gwen lives on Main, not Grove. And one of the Gauldings live across from the Laymons.

As for the seasoned businees pro bit, if you look at her vitae you'll find alot of proposed ideas, but I couldn't find any examples of those ideas being followed through on.

I'm not against change. But if someone is going to blow into town from who-knows-where, point out all the faults in the place and run for a public office, they'd better have a JOB!
I'm not going to trust someone to make decisions for the county that can't provide an actual home for themselves to live in either. And I am an eye witness to that.
