Wind power bug bites a college where it hurts

Lake Land College, a community college in Mattoon, Illinois, didn’t have to think twice about signaling its virtue when the federal government offered a grant of nearly a million dollars to install wind turbines on campus. The catch was that Lake Land would have to maintain those turbines and pick up the copious amounts of the dead birds they produce.

The college’s PR director admitted to The Daily Caller News Foundation that “since the installation in 2012, the college has spent $240,000 in parts and labor to maintain the turbines.” Uh-oh. But there’s more, courtesy of Illinois Leaks (“Edgar County Watchdogs”):

Back to the PR flack: 

Sure it will.  Lake Land excels in producing graduates with an associate’s degree in agriculture. All have more common sense than any administrator there.
