I rather enjoyed the article on Page 9 in 'Tammy's Take', "What's a winner?". I think that there was something within that article that could speak to all children...3 to 103. Thought provoking.

Just read another chapter in West Texas' continuing saga of water problems. (Buchanan, Lake Travis, Lake Brownwood) I remember that in the early '70s Congressman Bob Poage of Waco described a project to bring water from the Mississippi River to West Texas. It never got anywhere because of lack of support of fellow legislators, of course, mostly from northern reps. Poage said it would make a "garden" out of West Texas. His estimate of the project . . . $2 billion. We would have it paid for many times over by now. I enjoy the Eagle.

I would just like to say that I believe the current administration and school board is doing a great job. I do not work at GISD but I do know what schools have to deal with everyday. TEA makes changes, constantly and small schools are the hardest hit. They are required to do the same thing that the 5A schools have to do, with less money and less manpower! We need to support GISD in all that they do, for the kids' sake!!!

Congratulations Tammarrah Pledger for being named to the Media Honor Roll. What an amazing and well deserved honor. The schools are very fortunate to have such unbiased and objective views reported throughout the community at large. Job well done. Lets not forget Steve Bridges for his contribution, but in this instance, I can be a little biased.

The problem is sound travels, especially at night. I can hear them through my closed windows with the TV on. During the summer we have the windows open all day and night. Not sure how we are going to be able to sleep!

I am so sorry that some people are so upset with the wind turbines. I have one practically in my front yard and it doesn't bother me one bit. Sense one can't make anything out of land now days , it does give us landowners some income that we otherwise wouldn't have. I had a choice to have one or not. But sense they were going to be all around me, why not? It is another change in times that we have to get used too like ever so many changes us older ones have had to get used too. So just grin and bare it, it could be worse. Ruby Berry

There was NEVER ANY LAND OWNER notification with respect to the unlawful windmill project. Which has destroyed all that was beautiful of Mills County. All for $200M for the county! So much for my 25 years as a rancher........ I pray for all those affected worse than I. You can hear there ELF (extreme low frequency) indoors, as well the turbine blade noise. Not to mention all the birds they kill!! Nor the EMF harm from them as well! So much for Goldthwaite! Sad............... so very sad............ As I and so many other's have lost all........

I am a landowner and until they started cutting the roads had no idea they would be out here. I was never contacted by or invited to any meeting!


Submitted By: Submitted: 2/6/2014
The wind development was 6 years in the making. Landowners from all over the S/E part of the county were invited. Some wanted to be involved, others elected to decline. No sercret meetings were held. From a private land owners perspective we just need the income to keep the land in our family. Also, the county and school benefit greatly by the new taxable values. As a private land owner you too can do what ever you want that is legal on your property. Let's not loose sight of that right in this country.

I live in Mills County. I moved here specifically for the wide open spaces. I think the wind farm makes that area of county look terrible. I am completely against these awful things and I feel sorry for the people in the middle of them. I pray that no more are built in any other part of the county.

Re: DOGLEG- Feb 2012 There NEVER was a 'subsidy' for wool or mohair. What there was - was an IMPORT TARIFF - on foreign subsidized markets ie: Australia (wool) So Africa (mohair) are examples. Those governments (unlike the US) subsidized those products and 'dumped' them on the US markets. This UNDERCUT the US producers unfairly! Our government - back then unlike now- was by and for the people. Mr. Clinton in his haste to submit a balanced budget- REDIRECTED, that ( and many other sources of income to our US producers) in that endeavor. That tariff CONTINUES to be collected ,and I'll bet, spent on welfare and other negative programs. GW Bush's administration was asked to cancel Mr Clinton's redirection of this tariff, however GW got a bit busy with Afganistan and Iraq, and never did Our current elected officials are NOT agriculture friendly and I'm sure 'waste NO TIME' on what really built the foundation of this country GOD Bless America- even when we don't deserve it Jim Runyan Goldthwaite, TX

The wind turbines. I strongly believe that when we bought our property, this process was in motion--permitting takes years. We were never notified. Now, out every window of our newly remodeled home, we see wind turbines and red blinking lights at night. Very disappointed in the leadership in Mills County and our neighbors who did not share what they knew. I have been involved in Austin with the zoning commission and city council and know that when neighbors work together we can build consensus to achieve what is best for the community. This did not happen in Mills County.

We currently live in Round Rock. We hadn’t been to our trailer on our 20 acre property along Co rd 317 near Goldthwaite in a few months due to my work load. I had planned to retire soon (I am 70) and maybe move to our property. We loved the view and the feeling of tranquility we felt when we went out there. A good friend of ours, Aubrey Lewis past away last week and his funeral was Saturday in Goldthwaite, so we made a trip and were looking forward to visiting our place for a few hours to feel the tranquility again. You can imagine our shock! We knew nothing about a wind generation project until we got there. There is now a wind turbine looming directly over our trailer within about 50 feet and another about 75 feet from our property line as you drive to our trailer. We were never contacted, informed or asked about this project. It was a total surprise to us. My wife was in tears! What we had hoped for and spent much of our money preparing to enjoy is now, from our perspective, ruined! We purchased our land about 10 years ago and finally paid it off about 3 years ago. We have a large sum (to us) invested in the property, the fence, the water well, the trailer, and a small water tank. What we hoped might be our future home is at number 51 Co Rd 317, Mills co TX (near Goldthwaite, TX). Please drive out there and walk along the fence and see our trailer at the back if you are ever near there and you may agree …our plans have been ruined. And now I suspect our money is lost. It is hardly a financial wind fall for us. In fact the opposite. It is financially catastrophic for us. Can you please tell us who we should contact to at least voice our feelings? Martin Milner If you want to call me, please call (512-608-8396)

AMEN! I LOVE Mills County----the beauty, the pecan trees, mesquite, but most especially the people! Goldthwaite is where my family & I resided & where I raised my children for several years. I have nothing but incredibly fond memories---especially of the people of Mills Co., many of whom have since gone to be with The Lord. I so fondly remember every Sunday, after night Church @ First Baptist the little boys, two of whom were mine (Micah & Willie Aaron "Bubba" Sparks) gathering on the Church lawn & learning to play football with the Bill & Donna Laughlin's little-bit-bigger sons, & with the "big stars of GHS" (my sons' name for them)---the GHS football team---Douglas Holtzclaw, & most of the rest of the team. Both of my sons signed up with the Army @ 9/11--both were deployed & both wounded. The oldest, Micah was severely wounded in combat in 2004 (Purple Heart & Bronze Star), & after 8 years, passed away suddenly last year, 2012 the week before Christmas--due to "complications from his combat wounds". Willie Aaron healed somewhat (2 Purple Hearts, Bronze Star, numerous awards) did 4.5 deployments in Iraq & is now a Coppell, Texas Police Officer with the SWAT Team . I'm so very thankful for those incredible memories of Goldthwaite people, & those Texas boys playing football. I like to think that my son & Bill & Donna's son are in Heaven right now throwing around the football. Thanks for the sweet memories, Goldthwaite /Mills County! Linda Schoening-Sparks

Mills County is a beautiful place to live. We have enjoyed the community at large, and the peaceful rural setting for many years. With the announcement of '86' wind turbines coming to Mills County (areas around county roads 304, 315, 317, 318 ...) in the July 3, 2013 issue of the Eagle, I was prompted to to do a little internet reading on wind turbines and noise levels. Anyone living at least within a 3 mile radius of the wind turbines (as the crow flies), should read Richard D. Hornjeff's consultant report at docs.wind-watch.org/Horonjeff-wind-turbine-noise.pdf. It's best to stay informed, and seek out as much information as possible since we are all responsible for our own destiny and future.

To the entire Eagle team, I want to thank you for such a wonderful job that you all do. I know that attempting to meet everyone’s needs in a community such as this can be an exasperating task at times, but you always are willing to go over and beyond your responsibilities to ensure this community has the best possible coverage. Most journalist that I see are willing to put the time in covering events, but not taking the next step and being a vital part of the community as you all do so well. I know that anytime you are called, you are there. Anytime someone has an idea, you are willing to network resources. If you haven’t heard these words in a while, we need to be saying them more. Coming from someone who has just relocated into the community from another state, your presence and commitment to Mills County has made our transition so much more enjoyable. One of the things that I have been most impressed with is that when there is any available space in your paper, you run a Scripture in its place. Seeing such a tight knit community based upon Christian values and ethics starts with those in position of leadership and influence. Your influential example is setting the pace for many more generations to follow in your footsteps. Thank you for the endless hours that you put it making a difference in the lives of so many.

Mills County is a wonderful place. Since the end of the USDA wool & mohair subsidies, many hill country towns have struggled economically. 2 important things that Mills County residents need to consider: 1) Ask yourself what sets towns like Fredericksburg apart from a place like Goldthwaite? I submit, that the Germans down there are more progressive. Allow Mills county businesses to sell and serve alcohol and perhaps we might have a decent bar&grill and a robust local economy. Do your home and land values matter? Why are most young people so eager to grow up and leave Mills County? Secondly, please don't be fooled by the green energy/wind power business. Local land owners are so eager (*and hungry) to make a paycheck that they will surrender control of their land to the wind power company. Sadly, most of us won't make a dime from it, and all of us will be forced to look at these imposing turbines for decades! Sure, the tax base is great, but what good is that if our land values decline and our local wildlife resources are pushed further away. I own land within the proposed development, and I am against the wind power development in Mills County. Keep in mind, if these turbines were located just 2 miles off our windy Texas coast, they would be invisible from the shoreline and would create a fantastic fishery!! Texas needs energy business, let's just be smart about how we go about pursuing it. Tell the wind power companies, "No Thanks". Gig Em.

Dear Neighbors: By now you likely know that the PUC Administrative Judges have selected the Mills County route for the CREZ lines. This decision, however, is not final until adopted by the commission next month. There is still time to voice your concerns with the PUC. Please let them know how much we value our community and how much these lines will negatively effect our collective potential. If the Eagle could share with the whole community the process for sharing their concerns with the PUC - that would be great.
