Wind turbines harm environment, landscape 

Credit:  Daily Chronicle | Feb 3, 2017 | www.daily-chronicle.com ~~

I strongly disagree with any proposal to put in wind turbines.

These turbines turn the landscape into an ugly display of lights at night with their strobes and red beacons, not to mention the view. They are killing the bald eagle, hawks, owls and other large birds, like the heron, leaving things pretty barren.

Imagine a predatory bird flying at night chasing prey and it encounters the blades on these things. I have seen two communities, one in Illinois and one in Wisconsin, that would cause the old Native American to come to tears.

I would never buy property near either one of these sites and will probably move if these things are built within sight of Sycamore or DeKalb.

Paw Paw is a good place to start, but you can also see farms of these turbines in Randolph, Wisconsin, not too far from the Dells. Wisconsin as far as I’m aware halted the building of these turbines after looking at the destruction they caused to the landscape and wildlife.

Of course, if your computer and printer have to be left on and represent that part of your life that you can not give up, then welcome wind turbines when they come to your backyard.

If our politicians decide to litter the landscape with these things, others of us will have to make some serious decisions about our future in DeKalb County.
