Another erroneous story in The Mariner  

You may have read another erroneous article in the Scituate Mariner this week titled “Scituate turbine test shows noise complaints winding down”, in which the Mariner reports that complaints from residents about the noise generated by the Scituate industrial wind turbine were down 65 percent following a pilot program initiated by Scituate this past summer. I can assure everyone that if complaints are down, it has nothing to do with a reported pilot program that no one was aware of.

I suspect that others, like our family, simply have stopped filing complaints as the exercise is futile and always results in nothing more than radio silence from Town Hall, particularly from Jennifer Keefe, the Director of the Board of Health. I have many documented emails to Keefe, all of which have been ignored. I suspect that others have had a similar experience.

There were many summer evenings in 2016 where we were forced to move inside, close the windows and turn on the air conditioning. And even then the pulsating acoustics emanating from the industrial wind turbine resulted in many nights of interrupted sleep.

As one of our neighbors courageously shared in an email, “We feel so defeated. I stopped giving them anything because they never cared or did their jobs.” This neighbor goes on to say, “We are tired and sick of getting headaches or being forgetful. It’s about to get worse because the flicker is starting. We pay our taxes and give back to our community and this is what we get in return. It’s disgusting.”

Yes, it is disgusting!
