VOTE NO on Tuesday in Lincoln County

If you think Wind Energy is bad for people, I suggest you watch this movie about coal.

as a rural Lincoln county homeowner I will be voting yes.

What I also find interesting is that I have not had one person knock on my door, or leave any pamphlets etc encouraging me to vote either way. but yet my friends and relatives that live on southern edge of Sioux Falls have gotten all kinds of stuff showing up in the mail and stuck in their doors promoting the vote NO….

Just another typical I am all for it as long as its not in my back yard. I dont want to look out my window see a bunch of blades turning or flashing red lights at night. I prefer what I have now and hope it stays that way.

Wind is the future. The national power grid is obsolete and not worth renovation. When there’s a blackout, it’s big and long. Wind energy allows for regional (not national) power. There’s local controlled operations. It’s expensive to put up wind towers but it’s a one time cost. The power grid requires major ongoing cost for coal or fuel. If you don’t vote for wind, the Feds will eventually overrule. They did for cellular. It’s a utility. Cooperate with wind now and there will be local control so you don’t have a windmill in your yard next to the cell tower.

I will be voting NO. I’m tired of northern Lincoln county supporting the south on every financial issue. Its time for you and the sothern part of the county to start paying for your own way in the form of property taxes.

My Home was revalued before you. I pay higher county taxes before you do.

My licenses plate fees go to your roads.

My Taxes go to your all the county jobs in Canton

Your the same person that will say NO to Chickens, NO to Cows, No to Pigs and no to any other positive economic development.

As usual a small bunch of NIMBY people wanting others to pay the way for them.

NO vote 65% yes 35%

The Sioux Falls fire chief lives in Canton and a third of city employees live out of town. You don’t have half a billion in Huether debt for Denny Dome, an indoor spa, a vacant city building, and a private Wimbledon. Get ready for a mass migration into your county.

I’ve stated before and I will again, south side sioux falls residents have no business voting in this dispute. This should have been voted only at the township level. I will be abstaining from this fiasco.

@ Guest

The question is? What would you and others support for Ag or other types development that are good ideas?

CAFO’s for Pigs, Cows, Chickens, a correctional facility, or others give me some clue.

I would bet that you couldn’t come to agreement on any of those, if given the choice.

Just saying NIMBY doesn’t work.

“The question is? What would you and others support for Ag or other types development that are good ideas?”

more conservation, open up CRP cap limits and pay more to landowners that enroll. Just think how much that extra hay would be beneficial now instead of piles of cheap corn going to rot

put more restrictions on drain tile and implement more buffer strip rules that are more beneficial to landowners that enroll

As a former Lincoln County resident, the funny part is when the agrarian residents of the county think that they’re the ones ponying up the money to run the place.

Uh… nope.

At this point, Sioux Falls residents make up nearly half the population of Lincoln County and most of its property value.

Enjoy the woosh of the turbines. It’s the sound of you getting one step closer to pulling your own weight.

Watch this before you vote: The Wonderful World of Stu: This city spent $107,000 for wind turbines – for decoration, 5/18/2017. Easy if Google searched. Vote Yes!!
