Lowell Wind Turbines

Residents of the Lowell Mountain area of Vermont were promised that the noise from the Lowell wind turbines would be minimal. According to WCAX evening news tonight, the wind power is anything but quiet.

Locals were surprised that as of this writing the turbines were not even operating yet and there was already a troubling level of noise.  Wind turbines are supposed to be online until sometime in December 2012 and yet an operator told the nightly news team that when there is a certain kind of wind, moisture and temperature there will be noise.  She went on to say that this is uncommon and should not be the case when they are up and running.

Revolving Door Corruption

Revolving-Door Corruption in Federal Loans
Jan 31, 2012

Do you know what Revolving Door Corruption is?  Rand Paul knows and he is fighting to put an end to it in Washington.  We have included an excerpt here and a link to the rest of the story…

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Sen. Rand Paul today took to the Senate floor to introduce an amendment to the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge (STOCK) Act. The amendment would bring an end to the revolving door between federal employees and companies lobbying for federal funding or loans.

November 2012 meetings

Posted by on Nov 14, 2012 in All Posts, Featured, Meetings, News and Media | 0 comments

November 28th we will be on the selectman’s agenda. The meeting is at 6:30 and our time slot begins at 7:00.   If you plan on attending it is very important that we are respectful and quiet, as well as humble and gentle in manner.

We want to ask them where they stand on this project. We want to know why they feel wind energy is good/bad for Grafton and it’s residents. We want to know what research they have done (have they contacted other select boards in towns with wind farms? or other state agencies that may be able to help them learn from their victories and mistakes.) We want to know why there was no public hearing when they were approached to put up the MET towers (as there was in Danbury). We want to know why they have not informed the townsfolk about the wind farm coming to town.
