The people in the old west ranch near the Wymann ranch live off the grid with no electric. These People enjoy the awsome views to the sout and west please keep these monsterous machines out. We will have our way of life changed forever if they are installed.

Take a drive into the City of Mojave. First, be shocked at how run down the town is and all the stores that are empty. Not a dollar of all the tax money Kern County has raised in property taxes by the wind companies has gone into the economic development of Mojave or business district. On the west side of the Sierra Highway is the community of Camelot. Wind turbines are so close to the homes that the residents feel the vibration of the equipment on the ground, have shadow flicker from the rotating blades coming into their windows onto their walls and hear them every day of their lives. The same complaints were heard today, Tuesday evening at the Mojave veteran's building from property owners living off of Backus Road. What shade of green are these? The shade of "greed" over the health and safety of the people.

It is a good thing Phil Wyman is not going to be allowed to deelop his property for wind energy. Phil's project would take hundreds of birds and is in the migration path of the American Eagles that migratge through here to Colorado each year; not to mention our geese.
