Great news today! Mitt Romney released his official position on the PTC -- NO EXTENSION. See the text below.

Alas, since the sprawling Rollins Wind site was built on the ridges above the lakes, the slogan should change to "Land of 40 Turbines". One of the finest lakes, Silver Lake in Lee, is just east of the 389 foot tall wind turbines of the Rollins project.
