The Lake Maxinkuckee Environmental Council (LMEC) and the Lake Maxinkuckee Enironmental Fund (LMEF) released a statement last week formally announcing they do not endorse a wind farm project proposed by Florida energy company NextEra. The statement notes the organizations â€śwould like to clarify and comment upon statements made in NextEra Energy Resourceâ€™s paid advertisement in the Culver Citizen on August 11.â€ť
PLYMOUTH â€” A local group has decided to step into the battle over the wind in Marshall County.
NextEra Corporationâ€™s proposed â€śwind farmâ€ť project in Marshall and Fulton Counties has brought a storm of controversy from property owners opposed to wind turbines in the county, especially around Lake Maxinkuckee. While the opposition to the wind projects have made their position clear another group of residents has their own take on the controversy.
PLYMOUTH â€” The new Consul General of Mexico in Chicago, Eduardo Arnal, visited Plymouth Tuesday afternoon.
Arnal met with Mayor Mark Senter as part of his Indiana tour to discuss some of his goals for the Hispanic population under his jurisdiction (Illinois, Wisconsin, and the northern part of Indiana).
Arnal mentioned immigration issues, saying that a common question he gets is why Mexicans do not enter the U.S. legally.
â€śThe answer is easy,â€ť said Arnal. â€śBecause itâ€™s impossible. Not difficultâ€”impossible.â€ť
