  • Officials side against wind farm

    Fulton County Commissioners on Monday took a bold stance against commercial wind energy development in the county, leaving a company’s plans for a three-county wind farm unclear. 
    Commissioners Bryan Lewis and Rick Ranstead unanimously agreed to strike all language pertaining to commercial wind energy conversion systems from the county’s zoning ordinance. Their decision was met with boisterous applause from a large turnout of citizens opposed to a wind farm proposal by Renewable Energy Systems, or RES.

  • The Sentinel encourages residents to visit and shop at local businesses on Small Business Saturday and encourages businesses to take advantage of American Express’s shop small promotion.

    The eighth Small Business Saturday is Nov. 25. The annual celebration was founded by American Express in 2010 and is held each year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving to encourage all Americans to support independent businesses across the country, from their neighborhood cafe to the drug store down the street.

SENTINEL POLL

Flag respect

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.) What would you say to Mr. Denton?

  • Anyone looking for a way to give back this Christmas season can sponsor a family in need in the Rochester and Tippecanoe Valley school districts through the Miracle Tree program.
    Miracle Tree has been a holiday tradition in the Rochester community more than a decade with Mill Creek Church, and at least 10 years before that when it was run by another organization.
    Because of an increase in the amount of people from the Tippecanoe Valley area seeking assistance, the decision was made last year to expand the program.

  • Girls basketball
    Rochester (4-2) at Lewis Cass (0-7), 6 p.m./7:30 p.m. (JV/Varsity): Lewis Cass is winless and their losses have been by an average of 36 points per game. However, it could be argued that Lewis Cass has seen stronger competition thus far. Northwestern, Winamac, Rossville and Eastern (Greentown) have wins over Lewis Cass, and those teams are a combined 17-2. That doesn’t count traditional power Kokomo and Tri-Central, a team that reached the Class 1A semistate as recently as 2016.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL
    AKRON — If it was a storybook ending, the return of Tippecanoe Valley’s Sophie Bussard to the girls basketball team six days after suffering a severely sprained ankle in practice might have led to an inspiring win over a big rival.
    But in reality, the shots didn’t go down with enough regularity to make it happen.
