Windfarm sure to irritate neighbors  

Credit:  The Columbus Dispatch, www.dispatch.com 26 March 2012 ~~

In response to last Monday’s Dispatch article “Harvesting wind,” about the wind-turbine controversy in Champaign County, I have a few questions:

Farmer Tony Broshes said that he should be able to do whatever he wants on his property. Should he be able to put in a dump, landfill or nuclear plant? Should he be able to build a skyscraper?

Broshes said no one cared about him when he had problems with his farm after windstorms in 2008 and 2009. Did he have farm insurance and subsidies that helped him through those times? My guess is that he did, but if he had needed help and asked for it, the good people of Champaign County would have helped him out. I doubt they would have let him starve.

When a person plans to put up several skyscraper-sized machines on his property that will turn the area into an industrial zone and completely change his neighbors’ way of life, he should expect not to get the good-neighbor award.
