It is the transplants that need to get lost. More people from Fairview and Millcreek that move out here to live on 3/4's of an acre and then can't comprehend that something that typically happens in an agricultural area would happen here. They want to maintain our beautiful vineyard views but Matt and Paul both live in "recognized subdivisions" that were created when farmers threw in the towel and sold their farms to developers.

Have been by tim burchs farm so many times with my family to get some baked goods and awesome cider and produce. I asked him to hunt there and he was so welcoming and polite. He is always there working his tail off on the farm unlike half of americans anymore who want everything for free and want their " voice " to be heard about this. Its plain and simple....wind turbines are the future of this country and of manufacturing and its time to move forward. Congrats tim burch on this brilliant idea. This country will let every God based belief taken out of school and the constitution......so why dont u let tim burch have a right of his own to build what he wants on his property !!!

Wind generators have a -1.1 to 1 energy efficiency. In other words, they use 10% more energy in manufacturing, operation, installation and transmission than they produce. The scam is that the power companies are required to buy the inefficient energy from the wind turbine, and grants, tax breaks and such, when combined with the sale of inefficient energy, make them a profitable investment. None of this takes into account the high pitched noise polution produced by wind farms, and the slaughter of birds and bats

A lot of Northeast residents like the electric and gas they have to heat and cook

But Not in there back yard

No gas wells allowed they kicked the drillers out

Now trying to do away with the wind turbin plans

They want the gas and electric to use everyday though

I guess there is some words they call these type of people

Like having your cake and eating it to

Or just envious of some profiting on natural resources
