Letter to the editor

Wind conflict is personal

At a meeting I attended the other night, Mr. Reichenbach said “let’s not get personal.” You must be kidding, it was darn personal when you jumped on the bandwagon and signed to take people’s freedom away to do what they want on there own land.

You three people in the town of Stark have resided here less than 10 years each. Families that have lived here and worked the land for generations are the ones that have made the land and kept it as it is today! Now you want to come in our area and change it to your liking.

Our town board has worked very hard on the Jordanville Wind project and has done a very good job in our town. The last election told you what the majority wanted.

The wind turbine project would give us jobs, clean energy and help to every tax payer. First and foremost we are thinking of our children and the future generations to be able to breathe clean air, not about looking at a turbine, but then that’s the order we put our priorities!

As for servicemen and women fighting and dying for our freedom, we should be honoring them and not coming home and fighting against people’s freedom! I personally had a son and five brothers that all served in the military.

They fought in wars from World War II on and in conflicts, and yes two were Marines who are no longer with us. One brother was seriously wounded in the invasion of Okinawa. I am proud to say not one of them or any other service man or woman, active or inactive, would go against the freedom they have fought and died for and still are!
