Wind controversy splits neighborhoods

A quick look through phone books in Zumbrota and Goodhue reveals how close-knit the communities are. Names such as Buck, Ryan and Lodermeier fill the pages as relatives tend to live a stone’s throw away. That’s a large part of what brought Brian Loos to Goodhue County in 2001.

However, after the Mankato State University graduate became Goodhue’s police chief in 2007, he and his wife, Jenny, got a firsthand look at the splintering of neighborly relations based on the possibility of wind energy.

“Is money really that important? It makes me sick to my stomach,” Jenny Loos said at last week’s county board meeting, referring to contracts some neighbors have signed with wind companies. “Goodhue Wind has come in and ripped our community apart.”
