A dream home is no more  

Credit:  The Lima News | May 2, 2013 | www.limaohio.com ~~

In 2010 my wife and I purchased a building lot in Van Wert County, northwest of Delphos in Washington Township. Later that year we built our home where we planned to raise our family and spend the rest of our lives.

Unbeknownst to us, during this time, area landowners were secretly signing land leases with a wind energy company so that wind turbines can be built.

We are very angry, mainly because of the secrecy with which this all took place, let alone the money and hard work that went into buying land and building our home. We would have never built here had we known this information.

Learn from our misfortune, do research (www.landaccess.com) and ask questions if you are planning to purchase land or a home in Van Wert County near Middle Point and Delphos. If you don’t, you could have wind turbines as a neighbor within the very near future.

To land owners who are considering entering into a lease: Please read an article written by Bill Gunderson that appeared in the Washington Times on March, 16 2013 entitled GUNDERSON: Some Basic Facts About Wind Energy. You can find the article by doing an online search or by typing in the following web address: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/mar/16/gunderson-some-basic-facts-about-wind-energy/?page=all

All I ask is that you conduct independent research and think about your neighbors before you sign a land lease.

— Mark A. Wilson, Delphos
