Wind Farms Debate Final

The West Virginia public service commission has rejected "U.S. Wind Force's" application to build wind turbines along Jack Mountain. "I would say the basic majority are opposed to 'em because of the beautification issue," Mary adds. And now the mountains that reign high above Pendleton County will remain clear. "Good ridance...good ridance to a bad idea." So it looks like the battle is over for now, the wind farms not going up here in Pendleton County however the developer U.S. Wind Force says they're going to review their options.

It's the talk of the town in Pendleton County.

"I would say it's quite a hostile talk of the town, yes..there's very distinct dividing lines, those who are for it and those agianst and there's no inbetween ground," says Mary Boyer.

"I'm not really sure what to think of the situation, so hopefully it will all turn out for the best," says Missy Hedrick of Franklin.

The ongoing wind farm debate.

Some like mary Boyer are not hesitant to state their opinion.

"So I'm against it and my neighbor may be for, that's too bad for him."
