MAINE DOT BECOMES THE GESTAPO - CONFISCATES ANTI WIND SIGNS IN MOOSEHEAD LAKE REGION

Yard signs opposed to proposed wind farm project are disappearing; ...  

It’s generally a quiet town in Poseyville, but the debate over a wind farm has stirred things up in the rural community.

Driving through town, you’ll see that divide through signs for and against the proposed project. Scott Fisher is a member of a group opposed to the wind farm called PoCo Wind.

“We caught word that there was a company in the area looking at leasing farm ground,” Fisher said.

As of recently, there have been less and less of the signs opposed to the wind farm. That’s because someone in the community is stealing them.

Charles Carter, the Poseyville Town Marshall is investigating these thefts. “Last report I’ve had, we’ve had over 50 signs stolen.”

The signs are funded through donations to PoCo Wind. The group works to bring awareness to the potentially harmful effects a wind farm could have.

Fisher said opinions on the matter have always been something they have worked to keep as amicable as possible, working to respect each others’ opinions.

“There’s never been that divide from the beginning,” Fischer said. “To see that come out of the community, in terms of the theft of the signs is not something we want to see.”

Through community surveillance cameras, images were caught of the suspected thief, although they aren’t the clearest surveillance pictures. What’s identifiable is the sandals and the vehicle.

The group Posey County Citizens for Property Rights posted those images saying in part, “the vehicle in the photos below are a 2015-2017 Toyota Camry, with 5 ‘triple’ spoke painted aluminum 17” wheels. The color is likely light in tone. The driver is wearing distinctive sandals, likely black with a light-colored emblem on top and possibly velcro-close, and shorts/leg view which may help identify the thief.”

The Town Marshall said this is not what Posey County is about............................

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/
