Stop Big Wind now 

Credit:  Letter to the Editor | Bucyrus Telegraph-Forum | April 30, 2022 | www.bucyrustelegraphforum.com ~~

My name is Beth Swalley and I have lived nearly all my 63 years in Holmes Township, Crawford County. I had prepared my three-minute speech, which remains attached below, in hopes of the opportunity to speak at the public hearing regarding the industrial wind turbine project on April 21.

But just before going to bed the night before, I viewed a video presentation on YouTube titled “Get Out While You Can – Big Wind is Coming.” It made me sick and resulted in the revision of my original speech.

The Revision …

This video, just one of many comparable videos, depicts the destruction of Arkwright, New York, when Big Wind arrived. The horrific decimation of their farmlands, woodlands, roadways; the resulting mental and physical health-related issues that arose; and the ultimate division of their community. All at the hands of Big Wind – companies with no plan but to sell the project once completed and move on; company employees and subcontractors with no personal stake, who did not nor will ever live in the aftermath.

I beg of you all – educate yourself, your family, your friends and your neighbors on the truth of Big Wind. And instead of “getting out while we can,” let us band together to stop Big Wind from coming and destroying our rural countryside, our livelihood and our relationships with our neighbors.

This is Big Wind’s goal – divide and conquer. Let us protect and preserve Crawford County for future generations.

I ask the Crawford County commissioners to resolve to designate Crawford County a restricted area for the current and any future industrial wind turbine projects. And I ask our county commissioners … How do you want your time in service to this community to be remembered?

Beth M. Swalley, Bucyrus
