A very unbiased report on the wind turbine controversy in San Leandro. Halus Power Systems did visit me while I was mayor and, to be honest, I did not see any reason to not support what it is doing and attempting to do in creating green energy. I supported Halus' move to San Leandro, and in all deference to my friends in Heron Bay, the wind turbine will not cause any undue environmental problems for the area. I would hope the residents would allow Halus to install this one turbine.

Tony Santos, former San Leandro mayor

Grow Up

Why would anyone bother to build a wind turbine if he or she didn't derive some economic benefit? How will we make economic progress without profit? Oh, I get it. We in the Bay Area aren't sure capitalism is a good idea. We are going to find another way. Barter, perhaps? Social justice will prevail. Grow up!

Kurt Schoeneman, Boonville
