The Eiffel Tower it is not  

Many of us rely on the beauty of our hills and farms and a business that grows yearly. Please stop chasing the buck. Ide is acting like a real estate broker for big wind and some things (like our hills) should not be for sale.

Your recent article by Clover Whitham concerning the amount of resistance to the proposed wind towers being erected in Searsburg and Readsboro was missing a few key details that may have made this a more well rounded news piece. First, how many people are there near these towers, that will affected by these new, larger towers? How many people live near the project or and how will affect their lives? If you only had 10 people show up, that should tell you something, especially when the issue is so huge in other parts of the state.
Robert Ide (of the Vermont Department of Public Service) must have felt he was being received by a welcoming crowd I guess (a crowd of 10 people). He felt assured to say that he thought it would lure many tourists to drive out to see the windmills and then spend all their tourist dollars in Searsburg. I would like to see the tourist dollars generated from people rushing up to Searsburg to see the beautiful windmills. Beautiful like giant daisies? Like a rainbow? Maybe the Eiffel Tower? I doubt it.
I don’t believe Ide would have the same sentiment here in his hometown in the Northeast Kingdom where tourism is a multimillion dollar business.
