Having the NSP windmill outside my window I can tell you it's worthess. It hardly ever spins and when it does it's dark out and the electricity isn't needed because the coal burners are generating kwatts that arn't needed.

Whatever taxdollars spent on the PolarMill is wasted.

Thank you god for getting rid of the City Manager of NSP. It's like getting rid of those awful hemorrhoids.
What a worthless POS. Unbelievable that he was allowed 15 years to ruin a city.

Pioneer Press has a story today on wind turbines.

Turns out Obama has a double standard when it comes to punishing different technology for killing endangered birds.

When an endangered bird is killed by the petrochemical industry they are fined etc.

When an endangered bird is killed by a wind turbine there is NO FINE etc.

BTW, THOUSANDS of endangered birds are chopped up by wind turbines.

Under the proverbial bus goes endangered birds, guess Obama would call them bumps in the road on the way to energy independence.

Hurling now.....

Fridley must not have checked out his background. How do you get a job as city manager after wrecking the one he just left?
