A passionate yet comported audience of 42 concerned citizens on both sides of the Montgomery County wind farms issue listened for nearly two hours, Wednesday evening, to a Cass County journalist discuss his findings after nearly two years covering the issue in his county.
Mitchell Kirk, journalist for the Pharos-Tribune in Logansport was the guest of the Montgomery County League of Women’s Voters (LWV), and covered a wide range of topics on wind energy developments.
A commercial wind turbine project for Cass County was originally proposed in October 2016 by Renewable Energy Systems (RES), an international firm. Since its original inception, the project has grown to include proposals in Fulton and Miami counties. Other counties are also being eyed.
Kirk presented information that included technical topics, as well as the concerns on both sides of the issue.
“Since covering the issue since January 2017, I’ve learned that there are passionate viewpoints on both sides of the subject,” said Kirk, who also resides in Cass County. “At first it felt a little bit bizarre, since as a reporter I’m used to asking questions and not presenting information. But, I do think it is my responsibility to share the information that I do have.”
The RES project is purportedly a $900 million project, and the company reports that 35,000 acres of land have already been secured from property owners. Cass County Commissioners are currently in negotiations with the firm.
Question of the Week:

With advances in DNA research and genetics, science fiction is becoming science fact. But how far should we go? If we can create babies without disease or defects, should we? If we can eliminate gene mutations that cause cancer, should we? If parents want a baby with blue eyes, should they be able to "order" one? Where are the limits?
