Logger death has supervisors circling wagons

Maybe it’s easy to ignore a small group of citizens upset about a wind farm proposed for their one little neighborhood, or even two such groups.

But when those groups get together, it’s a lot tougher to dismiss their concerns and send them on their way.

Sure enough, that’s what’s happening in the mountains east of Bakersfield where members of the Friends of Sand Canyon, Ranchers for Responsible Conservation, Friends of Piute Mountain Communities, Friends of Mojave and other groups met last week to share information and devise a strategy to rein in wind energy in the mountains surrounding Tehachapi, Twin Oaks and elsewhere.

They haven’t come up with an official name yet, but I’ve been told their working title is the “Recall Zack Scrivner Coalition.”

Ulp. Hard to ignore that message!
