Clear-cutting of the Knobs is the issue
The aesthetic, rare beauty of the Knobs in Floyd County is an awesome experience of nature’s splendor. All enjoy this splendor — those at the bottom as well as the top of these hills — both city and county.
Clearly, sheer beauty is not enough; many practical reasons for their preservation exist. They provide a natural habitat for animals, give off oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide and essentially help control erosion of the Knobs. We appreciate the sensitivity of New Albany Mayor Jeff Gahan and others in charge of the city who understand the great fragility of these priceless gems and have openly expressed their concern and have insisted that the utility companies involve the residents of Floyd County in a process and plan to solve some of the issues. These Knobs are everyone’s “proverbial backyard.”
We understand everyone’s dependence on these utilities, but certainly, we must endeavor to lessen the damage of such intrusion on the Knobs. We encourage everyone to become involved and demonstrate that we “all” are the stewards of this land.
