    Another ad in Calumet County, Wisc.

    It’s too late for them! Will Calumet County avoid Johnsburg’s fate? It was only by chance that Bill and Mike Winkler, who grew up on the family farm in northeast Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin, learned about plans for wind turbines in the area. They saw a small ad about an informational meeting in a local newspaper. Then they learned that landowners were already signing agreements – before the meeting was even held. As Bill and Mike attended meetings and did . . .

Which is why the wind companies’ contracts prevent such speech. . . .

    CALUMET COUNTY CITIZENS NEED TO KNOW BEFORE WE CAN ACT!

We are desperately waiting for you to respond. 1. If a turbine is sited 1,150’ from our homes, will we be affected by the noise? Please provide scientific documentation. The National Academy Study recommends 2,640′ to mitigate noise. . . .

In addition, this “reform” proposes easing any remaining burden on the developer. “7. Specific Description of Policy Proposal: Legislation would contain the following elements: (1) definitions of large and small wind energy systems; (2) a requirement on the PSC to draft uniform standards for siting large and small wind energy systems; . . .
