In the spirit of local community support…

Hello Fellow Wind Warrior,

In an effort for The Seneca Anti-Wind Union to continue/strengthen our fight against the BIG WIND Companies who are trying to steal our property rights we have set-up a GoFundMe campaign. This campaign will help us bridge the gap of costs (yard sign, banners, brochures, info cards, event charges, etc) and donations. The campaign link is listed below if you would feel so inclined to contribute to this fight for our property rights!! Feel free to share this message with anyone you would like to.

Your support would mean a lot to us. Thank you so much!

Isabella Wind Watch / Things you hear lease holders say:

Things you hear lease holders say:

1) I signed a lease but I told them where they can and cannot build and drive on my fields.
Better read that lease and all those paragraphs that say they can go wherever they want and build whatever they want on your land.

2) I signed a lease and they better not do any construction while my crops are growing. Better drive down to Coe Township..pretty sure the crops are growing there and that isn’t stopping turbine construction. They will be reimbursed for this years crop loss but not the loss that’s caused in future years from all the compaction.

3) I signed a lease but my hunting ground is safe because they won’t Continue reading Isabella Wind Watch / Things you hear lease holders say:

Isabella Wind Watch: Things that wind salesmen say:

Things that wind salesmen say:

1) All your neighbors have signed or are planning to sign. Ask the salesman to see the actual signed leases. When he can’t produce them, call or go visit your neighbors and ask them if they signed or plan to sign. Don’t take a salesman’s word for anything.

2) We will work with you to place turbines and transmission lines where you want them. Get it all in writing…where they will build a turbine or power lines…because according to their lease, they can discuss it with you but in the end they decide what goes where.

3) Everyone who signs a lease is paid the same. While we can’t Continue reading Isabella Wind Watch: Things that wind salesmen say:

Letters to the Editor

July 07, 2018

As resistance to the proposed industrial wind turbine projects grows swiftly across Seneca County, many of the pro-side arguments are falling flat. People have done the math and are realizing the total monetary benefit (all benefits considered on the Republic Wind and Seneca Wind projects combined) amount to less than .45 cents a day for each person in the county. In exchange for .45 cents, we would be transforming a large portion of our county into an industrial zone Continue reading  Property rights: Real or imagined

Results from the hearing today in Columbus –

There were well over 100 yellow shirts at the hearing today. It was a wonderful showing of support against the setbacks. 20 very passionate testimonies were heard!!

Our job now is to pray for the Senators hearts to be softened so that they will vote to protect our health and properties. The hearing can be accessed on the Ohio Senate website.

This affects all of Ohio. Shari Sweda who is running against Nathan Manning for the Senate has come once again in support of our cause. She will be in the Firemans Festival parade on Greenwich.

Sound (and light) reasons to tilt at windmills

LOCAL COLUMNS / June 02, 2018

We interrupt this normally ground-based column to bring you a special report from the top of a wind turbine. What am I doing on a wind turbine, you ask reasonably? Is it a publicity stunt? Did I take a wrong turn somewhere? Is it just a really hot day and I want to be as close as possible to a very large fan?

Before my mom starts worrying that her son is perched with his laptop hundreds of feet in the air next to a spinning blade of death, let me reassure her that this particular turbine is a literary device to set the mood, and that I am in fact seated on a safely boring chair. Though of course, too much sitting is also bad for your health (sitting is the new smoking, I hear).

Do you know what else is bad for your health? Giant windmills. You Continue reading Sound (and light) reasons to tilt at windmills
