( KJ.com EXCLUSIVE VIDEO) GOING INSIDE KINGSTONS SHADOW-FLICKER ZONE
LELAND ROAD- Middle-school student Brian Reilly says he cant play basketball on Leland Road when the strobing effect from the Kingston Wind Independence (KWI) Turbines shadow flicker is at full throttle.I get a wicked bad headache so I have to go inside, Brian told the Journal as he stood on the front steps of his neighbors house.
Dan Alves, also a resident of Leland Road, refuses to allow his epileptic son to stay in his bedroom when the KWI Turbines shadow flicker penetrates into his house.Thats pretty much the rule, Alves told the Journal on Friday afternoon.We dont want him in his room but were not always home so we cant control it.
The KWI Turbine can be seen behind Dan Alves home on Leland Road during a cloudy day.
Alves said that he has asked next-door neighbors to check on his son when hes not home.My next-door neighbor actually came over and asked [my son] to leave the room, Alves said.
You cant concentrate, Alves said as he sat in his dining room speaking with reporters and squinting into the flicker from the KWI Turbine.You cant read a book, you cant read the paper, you cant relax.
Alves said his wife is also affected by the KWI Turbine and has refused to use her kitchen when the flicker occurs.

The Journal spent nearly an hour and a half at Alves Leland Road residence on Friday and documented flicker from 4:35 to 5:20 p.m.
Alves said the flicker had begun 15 minutes beforethe Journal arrived, which would bring the duration of Fridays shadow-flicker event to 60 minutes at the Alves homestead.
If folks knew exactly what was going on with our daily lives we cant enjoy our own property they would side with us, Alves said.

Alves also said he believes that the public misconceives the effects that the KWI Turbine has on areas within range of the turbines shadow flicker and noise pollution.It is hard to believe, Ill admit it, Alves said.
Alves added that he does not think the siting of the KWI Turbine, which sits atop the capped landfill on land leased from the Town of Kingston, was appropriate.
Shut the turbine off, Alves said.Thats the only thing Ill be satisfied with it just doesnt make sense to put this [turbine] in the middle of a residential neighborhood.
