What a difference a week makes in Cape Vincent.


A week ago, I walked to Tibbetts Point while wearing my summer shorts and t-shirt. This morning, this is what it looked like at the Village East End park. Wind from the north and icicles forming from river spray on the railing and shore. More north wind this morning and 23 degrees.

If you own a home in a wind targeted town, remember that Bill Owens, Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand are supporting legislation that will assist in the decimation of your home value and lifestyle.

We must work to support their challengers and turn them out.

What does wind have to do with this
picture and story. Is that what all you guys think about. Get a life.

"What does wind have to do with this picture?"

Take a good look again at the photo lady,you can't escape it. The industrial turbines in the background show up in every viewscape,lurking as a grim reminder of what used to be a spectacular pristine scene.

If turbines are allowed in the town of Cape vincent, the same will be true looking inward from the river and the lake and our waterfronts as well as all the interior areas.

Thats what it has to do with this picture and every picture to be taken from now on.

I look forward every week to local sportsman and author Mike LaDue's stories in the TI Sun. He has an appreciative eye for the simple beauty and intrique in nature, especially here in the 1000 Islands area. As of late several of his photos showing Wolfe Island in the background,elicit a sense of sadness, that this once spectacular scenic jewel has been despoiled by these industrial monsters. These behemoths dominate the skyline, and pose as a grim portent of what could happen if turbines are allowed anywhere else in the region.

It should not be lost on the zoning law revision committee that the Wolfe Island Industrial wind complex is clearly visible on many days from as far away as Clayton,and Henderson,while at night the intrusive red lights can be seen interrupting the spectacular night scape from as far as 30 miles.

We can't control the damage Canada has done to this priceless world-renowned scenic wonder, but we can avoid adding to it ourselves.

You anti wind people are jealous because your not getting any money and you wind people are upset because you're not getting any money either. What a loss for both groups. You both deserve each other hands down. Judging by the verbal abuse you give each other, your only concern is your self's, not the Cape. You both own property here and you're stuck with it and I hope your property values decrease that if you can sell it means a drastic value decrease. At least you'll always have to look at the turbines on Wolf Island to see what you're fighting about and why you're so pissed off about. Both of your groups are idiots and scum bags. I think I'll put up a personal turbine that's 45' high, 5 feet under the limit for tower heights based on the laws of the Cape. Nothing town can do about that. Ho Hum.

And you conflict of interest guys. You blew it. Too stupid to understand. Ho Hum

If you want to do something important give up on this wind stuff and look into the funny business with the water districts. They been scamming you for years. Ho Hum.

Ho Hum,

You are an illiterate nitwit. You sound as if you are between the ages of 13 and 17. I hope you are not older. That would be truly sad, and make it harder to dismiss your comments as the rants of an underage jackass.

Hey 8:05

Then you can join other dumb asses with more money than brains. One never recovers the actual cost of one of those wind toys. "Cept they get gov'ment welfare for being a dumb ass.

8:05 is a troll...

All he wants is the attention. Don't feed the trolls.

Stock up on tin foil for your new hats. The political world is out to get you and you are doomed. Harold Wiley and Gary were right. Some of you should not even be allowed to vote. Ho Hum

Try to vote in our town and your assessor will get a letter from the dem chairman trying to take away your star. Now that's good government like it should. Ho Hum.

There are no turbines on Wolf Island.

They're on Wolfe island... and I got news for you: They're definitely NOT going to be there forever. I bet they don't even make it 20 years! :-)
That's what happens to technology that doesn't work - and no amount of "hoping" they'll work is going to magically change that project from a failure to a success.

Sorry.

No such luck. What ever you say doesn't bother me. Like I said the town board can't touch me . 45' high comes under the towns laws of 50'. No sight plan needed and no permission from the town to erect it. The cost is all mind. Who needs your two cents. Ho Hum.

There should be some other reason to do a personal turbine other that malicious anger and to prove a point.
None the less, there is a ban on all turbine development until zoning to address all safety concerns are addressed. Certainly no one cares much about your personal wind turbine unless you are on the grid. Then, there are some concerns by National Grid. Prepare to jump some hoops.

Hey Ho Hum, you are definitely an FJ!

The water district story is being investigated and tracked very closely by interested citizens. It will be of special interest to district 3 that may have been overly paying and subsidizing the shenanigans in district 2. Ho Hum.

Anonymous said...

Well 9:24 in twenty years you won't be around to see them either?

Anonymous said...

Well if you lived in those two districts you probably paid too much, sucks to be you, then again your a summer snob. Speculate how much your house is worth, if you can sell it.

Anonymous said...

Also if you live in that district you might be one of those who are getting your water from a garden hose hooked up to the neighbor. This demands a full investigation of water mooches.

More government corruption by good old boys. You can't fight it. At least we now have a town govment that is checking it all out. Ho Hum.
