A representative from the company that is investigating the possibility of erecting large windmills in Whitley County says a project built here could benefit the county in several ways.
John Doster, Director of Business Development for Wind Capital Group in Chicago, which has an office in Columbia City, said Friday the benefits of his company building in the county would be numerous.
â€śWe do have three met (meteorological) towers that are measuring the wind to see if the wind is suitable to make it a potential project area,â€ť Doster said.

â€śWhen we got here, there was no hot water,â€ť said Tom Beck, pastor of the Larwill Wesleyan Church.
This wasnâ€™t at the turn of the last century, but this one. The year was 2000.
The church membership was seven with an average age of 62, according to Beck, and he said the building had not been maintained properly for about 20 years.
Columbia City Parks Director Mark Green told the Columbia City Board of Works today that there will be no Christmas lights in the park this year.
According to Green, The Whitley County Chamber of Commerce has decided not to have the Wonderland of Lights in 2010.
â€śI wanted to make it clear this was not a Parks Department decision,â€ť said Green.
Green also announced that the department will be closing its public restrooms next week, with the exception of the bathrooms at the trailhead near the Blue River Trail located near the fire museum.
