In this season of hope and reflection, a time to give thanks for our treasures and consider helping those less fortunate - I would urge us all to pause a moment, look around and appreciate the beauty of this community and consider protecting and preserving the natural green space we have left. Resist the temptation for that 'greedier shade of green'!
Londonderry voters approved a new town plan earlier this year that would ban development of mountain ridgelines. But the effect on the Glebe Mountain project is uncertain: The town has no vote on the project, and its fate rests solely with the PSB.

British and French campaigners have defeated plans for a wind farm at the famous battle site.
WESTERN MOUNTAINS -- An application for the long anticipated wind farm proposal for Redington & Black Nubble mountains now is now officially in the hands of the Land Use Regulation Commission.
This means, said Anderson, that they are seeking to impose a requirement that all companies purchase a certain amount of their energy from this renewable source. “The problem is that no one wants to buy the energy they are producing because of the high cost involved,” said Anderson. “However, they are pushing hard and I don't know at this time whether they will be successful or not.”
Last May, in a move some industry officials say contributed to her promotion to chairwoman, Judson voted against approvals for an 18-mile, mostly undersea power cable crucial to the 130-turbine Cape Wind electric generation project in Nantucket Sound, which Romney opposes.
Wind power has a defect: it only generates when there is a breeze, so it's no good for supplying peak electricity just when you need it. The Danes get around this problem by importing lots of electricity from Sweden and Germany, thereby passing the pollution problem to someone else, as well as quietly making use of Sweden's atomic stations. If the Danes didn't import electricity, they'd have to have more gas plants and so make even more emissions.
Politicians of all parties across Mid Wales are being urged to get together to sort out the best way to channel rising public anger at the spread of wind farms in the region.
An adjudication by the Advertising Standards Authority, released on 21 December, confirms that the wind power industry has duped the country, despite repeated warnings from critics.

The construction of a wind farm in Cheshire has been proposed at Aston Grange Farm, located near Acton Bridge in the Weaver Valley, on arable farmland. The planned site, developed by the Welsh firm Tegni Cymru Cyf, will be the first wind farm in Cheshire and will have an expected productive lifespan of 25 years.
“Turbines can offer a small contribution to the energy gap, however, due to their randomly intermittent generating capability, as seen in November with the cold spell and high pressure over the UK, the windmills stood still unlike the price of gas.”
Buried deep in the federal Energy Policy Act of 2005 are a handful of provisions with the potential to affect the health of Vermont's rivers for years to come.
Mollohan has compared the situation of wind power in West Virginia to the beginnings of the growth of the coal industry. “With regard to wind energy, the prospects are that West Virginia will be relegated to something of a colonial status,” he said, “with its resources being exploited by and for the benefit of outsiders, and with West Virginians being left with a legacy of environmental damage.
..it was the Sheffield people who voted "no" who have done their homework. The yes votes came from people who would sell out their town and the NEK in hopes that UPC's corporate welfare would trickle down to them and pay their taxes.
