Neighborhood whiners make demands

Becky Trout writes the "Mill site neighbors win half-refund," Supervisors agree to pay out $500, May 24, 2005
When neighbors recently decided to protest a wood-grinding operation at the old Bohemia Mill site, they had to shell out $1,000 for the appeal. With the project now canceled, the residents on Monday asked for their money back.

In a compromise vote Monday afternoon, the Board of Supervisors voted 3-0 to refund $500 to the neighbors of the proposed Fire Safe Council wood-processing facility.

But Supervisor Sue Horne took umbrage with the neighbors' curt letter, which stated: "We are demanding a refund in the entire amount of $1,000. Time is of the essence. If we do not receive payment in full by June 1, 2005 we will be forced to file this claim in Small Claims Court."
What a bunch of spoiled children. They badgered, threatened, whined and got their way, now they want their money back. No, they demanded their money back. It is time for this neighborhood group to grow up and start acting like mature adults.
