There is a battle going on now between good and evil just sayin...

Mr. Haggerty, if wind turbines are "Satan's work" then what are coal mines and oil rigs?
Frank Haggerty April 20, 2014 at 11:07 AM
First Wind is an independent North American wind energy company base in Boston, Massachusetts. TheRead Mores econdary headquarters are Maui, Hawaii. It's more than a coincidence that the company chose the two locations. One is Boston Massachusetts because of Governor Patrick and the second Hawaii is because of President Obama. We do know money has been pouring out the back door of Beacon Hill into the hands of commercial wind turbine contractors. Your local politicians in fact represent the interest of the wind turbine contractors and not the people who represented them. This is about taking peoples health and residential property rights for a Green Energy "Agenda" that does nothing but put money in the pockets of corrupt politicians and wind turbine contractors. We all need to pray to stop the wind turbine torture of our neighbors - And Blowin Smoke you are part of the evil that is destroying communities all across Massachusetts

You may apply for an abatement if your property is: 1) overvalued (assessed value is more than fair Read Morecash value on January 1 for any reason, including clerical and data processing errors or assessment of property that is non-existent or not taxable to you), 2) disproportionately assessed in comparison with other properties, 3) classified incorrectly as residential, open space, commercial or industrial real property, or 4) partially or fully exempt.

It sounds like the local assessor is doing the right thing when presented some evidence. I wouldRead Moreno te that, in general, values have increased since January 2012, so the 22% reduction may be a little low. The toughest part of doing paired sales studies is waiting for nearby homes to sell, one by one, when the owner is willing to discount enough to attract a buyer. The loss of Malaysian Airline plane and all the people on board is ALSO statistically insignificant, as measured against all flights and passengers during the last 10 years. But only a heartless moron would consider using the word “insignificant”, when describing the loss.

Apparently Falmouth has something in common with county Mayo. The article cited by Mr. Cool refers Read Moreto "scaremongering of the worst type".

Or, Blowin... a total disregard for the public's best interest

Dr. Smoke,, are you Dan Webb?

The last paragraph in Mr. Haggerty's post is significant. "On Tuesday, Mr. Osuch said this was Read Morejust one of several court challenges Windwise has initiated. He said judges have ruled in the town’s favor so far." In other words, Windwise is losing these cases, but towns must waste taxpayer dollars to fend off their frivolous suits.

so blowing smoke is happy the towns can torture their residents....

Judge Angel Kelly Brown was appointed by Governor Patrick it will be interesting to see if theRead Moredecis ion she hands down is political. Another note is Fairhaven Town Attorney said the judge will hand down a quick decision. The case ended on April 6 it's been 12 days since the trial ended. It's not a quick decision and you wonder who the Fairhaven Town Attorney represents the wind turbine contractors or the taxpayers of Fairhaven ?

Governor Deval Patrick said at the Boston Marathon yesterday : "We share the same fears, theRead Moresa me hopes, the same community," Don't believe a word he says ! Massachusetts has been suffering from commercial wind turbine torture for four years he has done nothing to stop it. Falmouth Massachusetts is ground zero for poorly placed wind turbines in the United States -For the sake of humanity stop the torture !

Nepotism, cronyism and patronage are a routine form of governance. Three disgraced former HouseRead MoreSpea kers made a visit to the State House, they were greeted with a standing ovation from legislators whose office they dishonored. Massachusetts is notorious for helping family and friends ease onto the state payroll system . Just sayin.....

Deval Patrick said today at the anniversary of the Boston Marathon Bombings , "We share theRead Moresam e fears, the same hopes, the same community," - Don't believe a word he says ! If he really cared he would do something about the wind turbine victims in Massachusetts. The wind turbine victims are bleeding from the inside out !

Wind turbine evidence of two types of noise has been known since 2004. Studies world wide areRead Moreshowin g the mistakes made placing wind turbines too close to residential homes. We can thank God that the Falmouth wind turbines will never run 24 hours a day ever again. The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center admission that they sited commercial wind turbines too close to homes in the past and now look at 2000 feet as a minimum proves many wind turbines in Massachusetts are causing health problems and constitutional residential rights problems. These type of megawatt turbines need 3000 foot setbacks. They should be moved to somewhere away from the public where they won't be a nuisance and a health issue for up to 200 homes

Blowin seems to encourage, from his selective report points, that no more investigation isRead Morenecessary . Where the MA DEP/DPH critique actually supports further study providing more definitive answers. Why would a independent state commissioned panel recommend "further study" on the subject if no association between cause and effect exists? Yet another example of unfounded denial by the "earth-is-flat" faithful.
Frank Haggerty April 17, 2014 at 07:43 AM
Governor Patrick is in denial. He came into office in 2007 and has had a series of renewable energy Read Morefailures, Evergreen Solar, battery storage company and placing wind turbines too close to residential homes. The governor has failed the citizens of Massachusetts building a wind turbine blade testing factory in Charlestown with NO blades to test and a 100 million dollar ocean wind turbine port in New Bedford with NO ocean wind turbines. Look at the scorecard our local and state officials have followed him and now he is thinking of a presidential run ? Our governor will be remembered as some one who hurt hundreds if not thousands of people through a wind turbine bunco scheme that all the local politicians got sold on. TIME TO ASSESS THE SITUATION
