The risks of ripping out the roots

I reside in central Virginia, where I’m raising three sons with firm Ohio roots. I’ve had my eye and ear on the wind turbine projects for some time and was actually, initially, for the idea! In fact, the company trying to move their skyscrapers into Seneca County is based out of the town we currently call home. What a kick in the gut. If I live so far away, why do I care? Why is this important to me? Why . . . Complete story »

Vocal opposition can drown out money

Recently, there have been several letters published here emphasizing potential revenue the wind industry could provide local school districts, particularly Seneca East. I appreciate the intent expressed in those letters. But in response, I would like to make clear that opposition to the wind industry does not equal opposition to local education. Indeed, many people who have yellow No Wind Turbine signs in their front yards are the same people who helped Seneca East pass its last levy by an . . . Complete story »

Wind farms and stinky farms

On the west side of Seneca County there is a huge landfill, run by a company called Sunny Farms, only as it turns out, it has become “stinky farms.” This started as a local landfill that has now changed hands several times. It now takes out-of-county and out-of-state waste, including building materials which when decomposing, produces out-gassing that smells like rotten eggs. What does this do to the quality of life, health and property values to nearby residents? Did the . . . Complete story »

Constraints bill for wind is lunacy

The recent coverage of the scandalous amount of money that is being paid out to turn off wind turbines, mainly in Scotland, should make consumers across the UK gasp with disbelief and anger. The reckless deployment of thousands of turbines by the Scottish Government must be halted and only Westminster can bring in legislation to slam the door shut on this absurd constraints jackpot and protect consumers against further unrestrained lunacy. Some developers are applying and getting approval for extensions . . . Complete story »

Contact representatives, regulate wind energy

As many of you are aware, there are multiple industrial wind companies looking to make Nemaha and Brown Counties long-term wind farms by putting nearly 500 industrial sized wind turbines in our counties. One of these companies, NextEra Energy, Inc., is a multi-billion dollar corporation. There is substantially more information in the December 12th and 19th issues of the Sabetha Herald, as well as significant resources on the Northeast KS Wind Farm Education Facebook page. Please investigate these sources for . . . Complete story »

Property owners need protection from turbines

It’s important to remember as you drive around Newman and Murdock townships in Douglas County that opinion varies. As you see all of the no wind farm signs in yards and fields, most of those individuals are simply saying one thing. We do not want the wind farm here because we have no protection from the wind farm. It’s easy to say these individuals simply don’t want it because they are opposed to wind energy, or they just don’t want . . . Complete story »

Wind turbines

Our supervisors are offering the money from the wind turbines to the people of Everly that didn’t want the turbines in the first place. Ten million dollars over two decades or $500,000 year on average to “give” to Everly. Actually there will be no tax money the first year. There will only be 5 percent the second year, increasing by increments of 5 percent each year until year seven when the turbine taxes will be capped at 30 percent of . . . Complete story »

Wind turbines in beautiful Michigan

Reading articles in The Alpena News regarding the resident of Presque Isle County’s concern on installation of wind turbines prompted me to write. The first time I encountered a “wind farm” was in Michigan’s beautiful Thumb area. It is no longer beautiful. The farm consists of hundreds of massive wind turbines. The size, according to dimensions on the internet: 494 feet high, with three 164-foot blades, longer than a football field. Space required for one turbine is three quarters of . . . Complete story »

Resident wants setback resolutions for wind turbines

All of my life I have thought of a setback as a bad thing. Something that takes your life from where it is, crumples it in a ball like a piece of paper, and throws it in a completely different direction. I have experienced setbacks in my life and would never wish them upon anyone. Now, however, I desire for every resident of Brown County to have a setback. A 3,000 foot setback. Recently in our study of American literature, . . . Complete story »
