What is happening to our country? Is it the whole country, or just in this area? When I was growing up here, people had respect for their neighbors and other people. They helped their neighbors in whatever way they could. Nowadays, people are squealing on their neighbors and hoping to get them in trouble by splashing it all over the Internet and in the newspapers. This is mean and vindictive. People seem to be thinking only of themselves and how they can get someone in trouble.
Recently, a respected Cape Vincent businessman was picked up for driving while ability is impaired because of his new heart medications. It had been rumored that he might run for political office. So, I think we can guess who was responsible for what happened!
Cape Vincent used to be such a nice little village. My parents spent their last years there over 50 years and I always thought everyone was so friendly, helpful and nice. Now, its the pro-wind people vs. the anti-wind people, and the pro-wind people will stoop to whatever level they have to to try to get anti-wind people in trouble, and then they seem to enjoy watching the trouble it has caused.
I have always said that if someone wanted to put a turbine up on their property, fine, but not at the expense of their neighbor. I know one kind and friendly family will have to move from a home they have lived in for more than 30 years, because their neighbor plans to put three right across from my friends home, where they will cause noise and health problems. These people have put a lot of money into their home and property, improving things through the years. Its just not fair.
Its amazing what greed does to people. Will someone please tell me how companies can do this run over peoples rights, especially to put something dangerous up, that produces very little energy, is harmful to birds and wildlife and will not be taken down when they quit working. How can this happen? Where are homeowners rights? Why doesnt the state come in and help these people? Why cant our governor do something to help? These anti-wind people have no one to help them!
This is just like taking our gun rights away from responsible law-abiding citizens.
Where will it all end? I sure dont have the answers!
