    Reasons NOT to Sign a Wind Contract

    Turbines cost you money The future of farming is in efficiency and precision. Turbine roads and towers decrease efficiency every time a field is worked whether it is planting, harvesting, tillage, spraying or other applications. Major seed companies will be less likely to grow seed corn near turbines. They need to be expedient with aerial applications which turbines hinder. Turbines can interfere with GPS, drones and any newer technology that requires a consistent signal. They do not offer nearly enough . . .

    Killing Maine, a novel by Mike Bond

    Buy at Amazon. Some of America’s most corrupt politicians can be found in the windswept wilds of Maine. The Pine Tree State rates next-to-last in citizens’ trust of their legislators according to the Gallup Poll (April 4, 2014), and the Center for Public Integrity gives the state an F for corruption.
