(Continued)

Health issues are becoming more of a concern relating to the low frequency noise and the power grid of electricity. Those with existing heart or hearing issues may incur major medical expenses. Until studies are completed, no further wind farm development should be allowed in Indiana. Regulations at the State level need to be enacted to create sufficient buffer zones to protect the citizens of Indiana and reduce corruption at the county level. The German people were mislead by the Nazi propaganda. Let’s not repeat history by believing the juwi propaganda. Stop the Prairie Breeze Wind Farm project now.

Darrell Pennycoff, Sharpsville

The definition of sequestration

From Polipedia:

Sequestration: (see-kwes-tra’shun):

1. Process where the Government is required to pay “their fair share”.

2. Always preceded by the House and the Senate along with the President, signing into law.

3. One of the few bipartisan political processes agreed upon by the majority of the Executive Branch.

4. One of the many bipartisan political processes where most politicians agree to cover their career and secure their next votes by not taking a stand or responsibility for the consequences.

5. Politically prefered process of the “Cowards of Congress” to cut costs without jeopardizing their jobs, precious perks and profitable paychecks.

6. Negatve consequences to their constituency is merely collateral damage, which is totally acceptable.

Patrick E. Harvey, Peru

Wind farms are all about money

Juwi Wind completes Minnesota project: there were 15-2 megawatt turbines build 480 ft. If you followed the article ,they wanted to have 30 percent by 2020 (expand to 30 percent of the energy.) The question is how many more turbines to get there? Is this method practical, or just a farce? It also sounded like the community has financial returns to their tax base from the energy produced.

Again we are back to a handful of greedy people; that let the wind mill companies draw up our ordinance.
