To the Editor:

This is in response to the lady from Sioux Falls.

I'm not against wind turbines, but put them in a less-populated area. We have many houses in our square mile area that it would affect.

It isn't several farmers who would receive extra money, but only one with eight turbines on his land and on his renters. The rest of his neighbors would be affected by noise as these are going to be 500 feet instead of 380 feet. When I mow, which is a lot, the paddles will flicker in my eyes. At night one or two turbines lights will be flickering in my living and bedroom windows.

Our area has studied all the pro and con facts. We came up with a large percentage of people for the cons.

If you want the turbines, let Juhl Energy know. Maybe he'll put them on your land or near your house.
