The Hardin County Board of Supervisors threw a curve ball into the adoption of a new county wind ordinance amendment - a process that began last year - when it changed language in the almost-adopted amendment on Thursday morning.

Thursday's special meeting was called to approve the third and final reading of amendments to ordinance No. 29, which governs the construction of commercial windmills in the county.

This is a horrible decision. The half-mile set-back distance was the right balance between the rights of those who wish to put a windmill on their property, and those who do not. Not everyone wants these giant machines towering over their house with the noise, moving shadows, and blinking lights.
