Problems with wind and solar energy generation in the U.P. was brought up before the U.P. Energy Task Force yesterday during public comment. Escanaba Township resident Kim Wyckoff told the group that property owners feel like that had no input into a proposed solar project in Delta County. Joe Kaplan of Escanaba opposed wind turbines on the Garden Peninsula. He is also concerned about the impact that large scale solar projects could have on migratory birds. And Randall Scott of Bark River talked about the difficulty of deciding these issues.



United Way of Delta County Director Julie Mallard talks about the fundraising campaign. The United Way is also involved in the Delta County Communities That Care.

Chailler says they then turned to the community to see what was available to help.
