County Committee Says, 'NO' to Wind Farm Tax Breaks
Here is what the proposed Horse Creek industrial wind sacrifice zone (some call them wind farms) might look like from Depauville, NY, Town of Clayton.
For twenty years, this 1993 Rosborough RF 246, built in Nova Scotia, has taken my sweetheart and I through nearly every lock in the Northeast USA and Canada. You could not ask for a better vessel to travel in or to answer questions about at the dock as it draws a lot of attention. Too many things to mention, but the fuel-stingy five cylinder BMW diesel is a start.
And 24 MPH top speed is not bad for a heavy boat like this with nearly a 3 foot draft and keel.
Oh, and then there was the time we were surprised by a big wind storm that tested its seaworthiness. I don't ask for trouble but when the trouble caught us by surprise, this small trawler, we christened Tier I in honor of our retirement system, took us safely to port.
The vessel is in the hands of a broker, Precision Marine, whose proprietor has also been the vessel's mechanic for nearly 20 years. Precision Marine knows the vessel inside and out and for good reason the owner always insisted on driving her to buy dock to be sure she was ready for the season. Hey, it is stingy on fuel and our pleasure since the guy works hard and deserved a break.
Parting ways with this old friend is bittersweet. But the thought of our pleasure being passed on to an interested party is honey sweet.

It is in the water and ready for a test drive and sail away.

JLL Comment regarding public participation in Public Service Commission matters:
The New York State Public Service Commission matters regarding proposed Galloo Island and Clayton, NY (Horse Creek) Industrial wind turbines are your only opportunity to enter your concerns into the public record. The PSC matters are your opportunity to make your voice known regarding the proposed sacrifice of Jefferson County's Golden Crescent and Thousand Island Region to industrial wind.
Don't take wooden nickels from anyone who claims
your voice in these matters is a waste of time.
