Industrial Wind Turbines May Result in $27 Million Property Value Decline

For every flawed study the Big Wind industry presents with no real loss of property value resulting from massive turbines, there are 10 more studies indicating that is definitely not the case. Wind leases continue to be gathered in townships surrounding the rural Tiffin area. There will be over ...

Hopewell-Loudon Renewal Levy

As a proud graduate of Hopewell-Loudon and now a proud parent of Hopewell-Loudon students, I would ask my fellow community members to vote “yes” in support of the upcoming Hopewell-Loudon School renewal levy on Nov. 6. This levy is a renewal tax, not a new tax. While it is understandable ...

Wind farms

With a very open mind, we went to the meeting about wind farms on October 16, at Camden Falls. We wanted to find out the whole truth of their affect on all the lives in Seneca county. We’ve put a sign in our yard, and are writing this letter in hopes that many more people in the county will ...

Sorting through the propaganda

It’s that time again when we need to try to figure out who and what to vote for. It can be difficult because the majority of political ads are attack ads that tell us nothing about the actual candidate or issue. All they are designed to do is attack and attempt to demonize the opponent or the ...

The crime of mental illness

It’s difficult to turn on the TV without seeing ads against issue 1. Police and prosecutors making scary faces telling us we are not safe if we vote to stop locking up nonviolent drug offenders. To put this in perspective, we need realize that the U.S.A. already has more people behind bars ...

Dangerous Cities

With all the crime we see on TV, news, I was wondering just what are the most dangerous cities in the country. So I decided to do some research to see if my suspicions were correct that they were on the two coasts where the largest cities are located. Instead I found some surprises. The ...

Windmills, or hot air in action

I have been following the wind farm program here in Seneca County for some time now and have noticed quite few shall I say inconsistent FACTS. I would like to put them to paper and see where it leads. 1. Windmills have been around for over 1,000 years, probably much longer, as there are ...

Film opened her eyes

I had my eyes opened about money in politics when I went to the showing of “Dark Money” at Tiffin-Seneca Public Library with my sister from Tiffin. This film, co-sponsored by American Promise and Seneca County Rising, presented a well-documented, bipartisan look at unlimited and hidden ...

Unintended consequences

I attended the Seneca County commissioner’s meeting Tuesday and read the following statement: I am really disappointed to see the commissioners continue to ignore how devastating the wind turbine debate has been in our rural communities. The debate has turned neighbor against neighbor, ...

Gadfly on wind

Recently, TiffinOhio.net posted a story on a hit piece written by a top-level pro-industry group. It attacked a non-politician local citizen for his work in pointing out to our county commissioners the reasons why the proposed wind projects are not a good fit for Seneca County. Somehow the ...
