On Monday night, I took my last college class and was able to draw a sigh of relief. It was so good to get it finished and concentrate on our Supreme Court Appeal for Spruce Mountain in Woodstock, Maine. For those who are not aware, here in Woodstock we have been working hard to get safe distance and sound concerns dealt with by the DEP and BEP. Both departments have disappointed us by allowing no hearings so that we could counter the projects estimations on their reports on sound, ect.…Continue

The news and verification that Bayroot, LLC, is being powered by Yale University Investments, has changed the aspect of our fight. Or has it? For some it is the affirmation of what was suspected and in others it will be like a slap in the face. How can you fight something so big?

The third day, we spent pulling our canoes upstream, the 4th day, we spent 1/2 the day camped by a small dam and took turns jumping off the dam to bob up down below. It was exhilarating to fall through the water,…Continue

Rufus brown did an excellent representation to the court. He was able to combined both the Oakfield and Roxbury cases as one. Noise is the major issue and the fact that the DEP will not give an open hearing concerning the projects and sound. If there was a hearing, then Rufus would be able to ask the "wind specialist" to prove their conclusions and to explain how they made there findings on the issues involved.
One justice even asked why the DEP didn't use this opportunity to allow a…Continue
