They can, but they are small, like the kind you see at a miniture golf place, and spin really fast, like the fan of a car engine.

Probably so they can get rehired then Mitch can take credit for the jobs.

Benton County lacks diversity and lost a lot of revenue due to not having the basic needs provided for the wind turbine employees... i.e. motels, housing, restaurants that open before 6:00 a.m. and close after 9 p.m., indoor swimming pool, physical fitness center and more. 80% of the turbine employees house, dine and shop in Lafayette where there needs are met.
