Industrial Wind Turbines

Dear Editor;
The unfortunate, horrifying, and revolting proposed Industrial Wind Turbines (IWT) of 650 feet tall of Red Barn to be located by Montfort and Livingston causes a terrible and diabolic health problem.
The following is a testimony given by one person who has lived near Industria Wind Turbines. He has given me permission to give his testimony on wind turbines which I believe were about 400 feet tall, much smaller than the Red Barn IWT. "My name is David Enz, my residence is located at 6034 Fairview Rd Denmark, WI. July 26,27, and part of 28 I spent several hours at the house doing some cleaning and maintenance work. I didn't experience adverse health effects because the turbines were not turning but was somewhat apprehensive because I didn't know when they would start up again. It only takes a few minutes after they start up for me to be affected and if you have ever experienced how awful that feels you would understand. I share this so you know it's not the building or property that causes my health symptoms. I don't have the head pressure, blurred vision, eye pressure. etc. unless the wind turbines are operating.
David Enz Denmark, Wisconsin
Whomever is concerned; Last week July 25-28th I spent time at the home I been driven from due to ear pain, head pressure, unsteadiness." Since then David has moved to Alabama.

The 650' Industtial Turbines are attempting to push ahead through use of NYS 94-C directly across the street from me. We just purchased our home in the high market in January 2021 where it was not disclosed to us that it was proposed. Nobody who will directly Neighbor these Turbines supports them being installed. We are trying to fight still if anybody will listen. What I'd like to know is, Did Mr.Enz,s property in WI sell for today's market value? Does he know of any complications that buyers faced in regards to financing or obtaining home owners? We have a very new VA mortgage & know that we would need to leave if they came but fear that we would loose everything that we have worked to obtain just so people who don't live under them could received large monetary sums. Their backing strictly was for the $ received as these Turbines will not be providing electricity to our area & increased employment opportunities are only temporary IF they are to be open to locals.
