We like our open spaces across N.D.

This letter is in response to the comments made by the CEO of PNE USA Inc, developer of the Burleigh-Emmons Wind Farm (Dec. 21), Ron Flax-Davidson of Chicago.

I don’t expect someone from the Chicago area to understand how we appreciate the wide open spaces of the North Dakota prairies. These unobscured views are becoming more and more scarce as the state witnesses the continued search for oil and coal, not to mention the hundreds of wind turbines already here.

If the economic benefits of jobs, income and tax revenues are so great, why not put the wind farm in the Chicago area? After all, isn’t Chicago known as the Windy City?

Deb Larson, Bismarck
