Granville, Ohio’s Tree Debacle With AEP Comes Back To Haunt Them

The rumor has it that Granville, Ohio was the last to get their power turned back on because they put up so much resistance to the work AEP was doing back in 2009 in an attempt to prevent outages. After watching this video, I think that the obvious reason that so many in Granville were last to receive power after these recent storms was that they had so much debris that needed to be cleared.

Listen to what the rhetoric they are using against Tim McCray as he tries to explain to them that AEP has the right to clear all of the trees in their right-of-way for 30 more years to come. He’s trying to tell them that it’s a necessity for the power company’s operations. Their retort is that they must stop “the massacre of the trees”. They even refuse to quit video taping him in hopes that he’ll say something wrong. He knows they’re going to try and snag him with a captured soundbite later, but they refuse to stop the video recorder so that he can inform them of AEP’s legal position.

For those that don’t know about Granville, Ohio. It’s a really nice, quaint little college town. It’s full of nice people, but over-run with Liberal extremists that run the village. They find ways to pick and choose what businesses succeed and fail by using zoning codes to micro-manage the town’s affairs. Like many Liberals, they always think that they know what’s best and that their government management is required for things to operate properly. This time, that micro-management and restrictive use of common sense led them to a few days of misery without power during some record-breaking temperatures.

It’s sad to see good folks who didn’t play any part in this suffer, but maybe they’ll reconsider how they run their village in the future. I wonder what these folks who fought so hard against AEP will say now that mother nature has done their tree trimming for them? Who knows if the rumors about AEP’s priorities were stacked against Granville or not? I can only guess that those who do know are just shaking their heads.
