Where are the comments from last night???????

Brother Nature said...

First of all.....drilling and fracking well sites DO NOT create any jobs. Second....wind turbines don't hold any risk to our water supplies. It sounds to me like JKLM is turning into a whiner? How much is enough for you JKLM?

JKLM failed to tell you that they are fighting with other townships over things JKLM promised and then wont follow through with.Or that part of there legal team is married to a penn dot manager who from what i can see tends to look the other way when roads are getting torn up in his county.As far as i can tell JKLM makes a promises about what they will do and then run s right over everybody

JKLM knows all about screwing up water supplies.

Yes JIM what are you doing here, censoring? what happened to my post from last night? Great way to start losing readers.

Good question - where are all the comments that were posted previously? There were at least 16 earlier today, mostly critical of Big Level. Now all we have are anonymous attacks on JKLM. Let's the get the rest of the story back up here.

If you read the agreement between Big Level and Hector Township and study the formula used to calculate their "Annual Host Community Payment", you'll find that Hector Township would get more money overall if the assessment of Big Level's planned wind farm was less than $1 Million than they would if it was $50 Million. That's more than a little suspicious on it's own, but it's just the tip of the iceberg. While the township doesn't set the tax assessments on specific properties they can certainly appeal ones they don't like (or support a Big Level appeal) and if they didn't have some influence over the process you wouldn't have so much of their agreement with Big Level devoted to this topic. There are provisions designed to keep their tax and assessment details confidential by giving Big Level notice any time a member of the public asks for information to allow Big Level time to take action to "prevent or limit the disclosure", another that forces Hector Township to "understand and agree" to Big Level's planned approach to the valuation question (which appears to be "pretend that none of their facilities ever got built and just assess the raw land") and that's not all. Turbines may not be taxable in Pennsylvania, but other improvements certainly should be.

Ask Hector Township for a copy of the agreement, and read sections 3, 4, 5 and 12(e) in particular. Then ask yourself if you think the Township should be making promises like that to an out-of-state business. Then ask yourself if you would trust Big Level if you were JKLM.

Gas development does create and sustain jobs. There is no doubt. And don't forget,the wind farm will disturb hundreds of acres and cost us all money. If they want to do it I guess they will, but at least the township can make it safe for all users of the land by making the turbines stay back from the roads and trails. A turbine that tall can throw ice as far as a football field in any direction.

Louise said...

When I observe turbines, it seems that they are spinning very slowly. Is that an illusion?

If you are pro fossil fuel the wind turbines are spinning at 100 mph.

I think they do spin slowly. But from 700 feet in the air, ice can form and fall a good distance away with the wind. Thats all I was saying.

I love the myth of clean natural gas. The hundreds of water loads to and from the sites each day are pumping out tons of noxious fumes. I've seen many blowing black smoke with every shift in gears. The roads are being destroyed. Who pays to fix them? Have you been over Fox Hill lately? It's almost impassable. The chemicals pumped and spilled every day.. look at all the lists of violations - it's ridiculous. I'm not going to cry over JKLM losing sites. Do I like wind turbines? No! But they're better than gas wells any day of the week.

Do you drive a vehicle, a snowmobile, ATV, boat, bus, semi, or any other fossil fueled vehicle. Do you have any items in your home made of plastic? How do you heat your home? How do you obtain electricity? Do you grow your own food or do you have to get into your vehicle that takes fossil fuel to go to a store that obtains its stock from semi deliveries? Maybe you heat with wood? How did you cut down the tree? Chainsaw? How did the wood get to your house? Delivery? One less tree is no longer creating oxygen. But none of that counts when you complain about gas!!! We are a fossil fuel nation. We have bought foreign oil, making our country dependent and a subordinate to other countries. Unless you are amish and live off the grid, you are a fossil fuel dependent. We will get there some day with pure clean energy, but in the meantime are you ready to give up your home, vehicle, modern possessions, job, lifestyle, toys, and all of the other things that are tied to fossil fuel to watch Potter County become 100 percent clean? See you in a couple hundred years. And, fracking has been going on for decades. We now can try to control it, where for years it spewed on the ground. And yes, I work for a gas company, and yes I spend most of my pay right in Coudersport. So do several of my friends.
