Seeking Information About Wind Turbine Noise

Seeking Information About Wind Turbine Noise

vt-world
Editor: As I read letters about the noise related to wind turbines, one question comes to mind that I need readers’ input. I have very limited experience with wind turbine noise directly, but am familiar with the noise of the ocean surf. Question: How does the noise of wind turbines compare with the noise generated by the surf? For a comparison of these two noise effects please base it on the following points: a. The energy spectrum of the noise (how the power of the noise varies with frequency). b. The temporal (time) distribution of the noise. c. The duration and consistency of the noise. Please cite specific, peer-reviewed, sources for your information. Thank yo…

“The World” Connects Us to Each Other

Editor: Why would anyone want to read The World, let alone have to find a spot to pick it up now that the paper has made the difficult business decision to end home delivery in some areas? Why would it be worth one’s time to seek out a distribution point? When I first moved to Vermont almost 25 years ago, I never bothered with The World newspaper, thinking it was “just full of advertisements.” I soon learned from my neighbors, co-workers, school connections, church associations and other folks that The World is “The Paper” in Central Vermont! Be it a church dinner, a non-profit’s fundraiser, announcements of births, engagements, marriages, anniversaries and the like, articles about…

No Need to Force Vote on Berlin Public Safety

No Need to Force Vote on Berlin Public Safety

vt-world
Editor: The petition “to force the vote” regarding the Regional Public Safety Authority that’s circulating through Berlin is not necessary. We already voted last March and don’t need to do it again. We voted for those who are now members of the Berlin Select Board to lead this town into the future with Berlin’s best interest in mind, and that’s exactly what they are doing. The Berlin Select Board is focused without conflict on what’s best for the town. We fully support their decision not to jump on board the public safety band wagon just because our neighbors did, and thank them for keeping Berlin free to “shape our own future” without Barre and Montpelier telling us what to do. Ron…

Free training and certification for Vermont diesel truck drivers and fleet managers about the benefits of idling reduction is now available online. This program can have a powerful impact resulting in cost savings, increased vehicle efficiency, reduced number of employee sick days, and reduced environmental impacts. “In Vermont, motor vehicles are the largest source of greenhouse gases and a number of other air pollutants that threaten human health and our environment. When it comes to addressing motor vehicle pollution, reducing unnecessary vehicle idling is low hanging fruit. In fact, if every car and truck in Vermont reduced unnecessary idling for just one minute per day, over the cour…

When I was young and school was going to start in September, mothers were all excited. Back in those days, mothers spent all their time keeping house, preparing meals for their family, and making sure that their children behaved. I knew no mothers who worked, but I did know, when Labor Day came, they couldn’t wait for the children to go off to school. What is the difference between now and then? Well, back in the day, children were made to behave. All children knew how they had to behave, even when they were out of the view of their parents. And if they didn’t, somehow the word got back to their parents. I think back then, the idea that a village raises a child, was absolutely true. And o…

Captivated: the Trials of Pamela Smart ***1/2

When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye… she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. -Genesis 3:6   Blaming women for men’s sins is part of the human condition; at least as old as the Bible. Sometimes the criminal justice system works just like Genesis: railroading and condemning a mostly innocent woman for our pleasure and amusement. One of the reasons why women are rightly called the “fairer sex” is that they are very rarely the perpetrators of unprovoked violence. On the rare occasion that a woman - especially a young, good-looking woman - is involved in a violent crime, the…
