Rochester Mayor Ted Denton is appalled by National Football League players who kneel during the national anthem. Therefore he has issued a call for a big turnout at the local Veterans Day tribute Nov. 11. (That will be at 10:30 a.m. Saturday Nov. 11 at the Fulton County Courthouse.)

  • A Fulton County Area Plan Commission tie vote Monday means county commissioners’ decision to prohibit commercial wind energy conversion systems in the unincorporated area of the county will go into effect. 

    The plan commission was split 5-5 on whether to uphold the action taken by county commissioners, who determined with a Dec. 4 resolution that commercial wind farms are not in the best interest of the health, safety and general welfare of the public. 

    According to Fulton County Attorney Greg Heller, the plan commission’s tie vote constitutes no action being taken.
