Please don’t sell us out  

Credit:  trib.com 1 December 2010 ~~

Wake up Converse County! In case you haven’t heard, the Converse County Commissioners are in the process of ruining our mountains. Our elected officials – the ones we voted in, the ones we put our trust in, and the ones that we pay to protect our interests – are allowing a wind farm to be built in the Boxelder area.

People live in Converse County for what is here. It is a beautiful and quiet place to live and the people enjoy the mountains. And until recently, I thought all the people respected it. Now I read in the paper that there are businesses in town that believe we need to sell out what we have … for what? A couple months of great business. We have supported these businesses for years and they now forget that fact since some new money is in sight. They don’t care that most locals don’t want wind turbines in the mountains and that our mountains will be destroyed forever. Who will be eating at their business when the wind guys leave? I know one restaurant I’ll not eat at any more and I will be sure to tell my friends and the people on the street where to eat when they visit Glenrock.

I don’t think the wind farm developers respect the land or people’s opinions. Why should they? They are only here for a short while – they build, they destroy, they move on. Wind turbines aren’t green and should be considered pieces of garbage destroying the mountains and something being shoved down our necks. And for what? Money isn’t everything when you live in Wyoming.
