Waste of money

Re: “Schoolyard turbine too costly,” Nov. 4.

Are you kidding me? With all the financial pressures on the CBE, the best thing they can think of to spend $290,000 on is not reducing class sizes, not repairing aging, rundown facilities, not hiring more teachers, but buying a wind turbine?

Oh wait, it’s a great investment, too! It will pay out in 20 years.

I have a better idea. Can the project and can the people who proposed it.
