Corps Set to Begin Public Hearings on Cape Wind Project

Vineyard Gazette: "Vineyard residents who want to weigh in on the controversial wind farm proposed for Nantucket Sound will have their best chance when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and its entourage arrive on-Island Monday for the first of four regional public hearings."

The Barnstable Patriot has this point, counterpoint on the project. Arthur Pugsley, a supporter of the project, emphasizes that opponents' allegations of procedural problems with review of the project simply don't hold water (or wind, as the case may be). Gerry Desautels, a project opponent, takes issue with the size of the project, and dismissing all potential benefits, pegs the project as the outgrowth of one man's personal and corporate "greed."
