Letter to the Editor: Rural Oregon endangered

Antelope event

To the editor:

The proposed “Brush Canyon” Antelope and Shaniko area wind turbine siting hearing last month was cancelled. It’s been rescheduled for 6 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 7, at the Antelope Community Center, Main St., Antelope.

Antelope City Council is asking for a bypass around our tiny historic town. Please write ODOE to support us. Comments are due by Jan. 7.

ODOE says comments may be mailed, faxed or e-mail to: Sue Oliver, Siting Analyst, 395 E. Highland Ave. Hermiston, OR 97838 FAX: 503-373-7806 sue.oliver@state.or.us.

Review the Proposed Order. German owned “E-On” World’s largest private utility wants a Mega Industrial Wind Farm in Wasco and Sherman counties.

Endangered: Over 70,000 acres range and farmland, wheat lands, wildlife habitat centered between Deschutes and John Day scenic rivers: raptors, eagles, hunting, Journey Through Time, Oregon scenic by-way, historic western towns Antelope and Shaniko. Get informed and speak out.
