Letter: Take a lesson from Iowa and don’t allow wind farms
It is with interest that I have been following the attempts by wind turbine producers to convince landowners and local governments to allow placement of generators in our area. I was born and raised in Iowa, where for the last 20-plus years there have been giant wind turbine fields...
