"social services": a bunch of interfering bastards. "free": any unsupervised or untethered object in plain view. "work": crack cocaine "tattoobs ": tattooed boobs.  (Jun 2, 2011 | post #29)

do people on welfare realize

The Urban Dictionary is well worth a browse: Welfare: a holiday celebrated the 1st of every month. Food Stamps: A plastic credit card issued by most states to enable ostensibly poor people to buy cigarettes, beer, tabloids, potato chips, and lottery tickets. Also known as a "ghetto visa". lazy bastardizing: when you combine doing nothing with slacking off.  (May 27, 2011 | post #16)

Thank you for putting a name on it: WelFunk. I knew there had to be a name for the combined odor of: sweat, unwashed clothes, food (hot dogs), diaper wipes, and occasionally some sort of aftershave.  (May 26, 2011 | post #11)

Shopping cart people

Last I heard the Village is considering impounding the carts under abandoned property law and making the stores pay to get them back. Cart theft is ignored by everyone in Herkimer and the stores won't prosecute their own customers. So the Village might just go with impounding them and forget the tickets. The carts look like crap. I saw one yesterday in the West Canada by the bridge.  (May 23, 2011 | post #20)

Big Wind

So you're saying that wherever wind turbine facilities are built, there will be constant wind and they'll all run at near 100% capacity. I do get that, however you should know that in the summer, the air is frequently still in Fairfield as soon as the sun goes down and for hours during the day. Of course the windmill companies did their pre-testing and they should know this. I will be interested to see if the turbines are spinning at 350 feet during those times. Inland NYS is actually not the wind capital of the universe. Perhaps you can elaborate on your statement about lack of demand for electricity causing the windmills to run at lower capacity. I don't follow that. Finally, it is a fact that the wind turbine companies get federal and state subsidies for building these facilities. They will get them for a certain number of years. When they run out, the turbine facility is sold to another company who gets fresh new subsidies. This is how they make profits. A little 37 - turbine facility like the one in Fairfield cannot possibly be profitable without subsidies. I look forward to reading Iberdrola's financial statements, if they can be acquired.  (Mar 31, 2011 | post #12)

Big Wind

I'm not sure I follow this line of reasoning. Are you saying that the Fairfield wind turbines are operating at nearly 100% capacity because they serve a small geographic area? If so, what is your source for this information, so I can read more about it.  (Mar 30, 2011 | post #9)

Big Wind

From today's O-D Opinion Letters: Wind farms grow mainly thanks to money Wind turbines promise to save our planet through free, clean energy. But our wind is intermittent, seasonal and at best unreliable. GE, a major manufacturer of industrial scale turbines, has reported “the effective capacity of wind turbines in New York is 10 percent due to seasonal and daily patterns of wind generation being largely out of phase with New York electrical grid requirements.” In Central New York, it is not likely our air conditioners will ever be run by electricity produced by wind power. To add insult to injury, grid managers need to keep a “hot backup” generator spinning to fill in electricity when the wind isn’t blowing. These backup generators run on fossil fuel and produce CO2 pollution. There is virtually no CO2 displacement by wind turbines. So, what keeps the industrial wind turbine business spinning? Money. Federal and state tax incentives drive this business. The wind farm project in Litchfield would have an effective tax rate of minus 164 percent. Without these kinds of generous subsidies, the wind turbine business would disappear, only to the detriment of a handful of investment bankers, a few landowners and the developers. Money is the manure that makes wind farms grow. DOUG WHITFIELD Clayville  (Mar 24, 2011 | post #1)
