    Starting with the wind turbines

    I’m all for creating energy with renewable resources. However, I don’t think that Vermont is the place for these. The pictures in the paper showing a ridgeline with these turbines were very disturbing in the amount of damage done to create the access road and set them up. If we are going to keep adding them to our ridgelines and mountaintops, we should consider changing our name to the Fan Mountain State.

    If we are going to destroy the views of the mountains, why not go all the way and repeal the billboard laws? At least the state could get some income from licensing them and a use tax.
