The Daily Advance has a piece on the wind farm project with a misleading headline.  The headline reads “Wind Power Generating Excitement, Locals eager to see project to fruition.”  The article, however, does not cite a single local who is eager to see the project to fruition nor is there mention of anyone who is excited about the project.   In fact, it doesn’t appear that any locals were interviewed for the article.  He does have quotes from a local official of Camden County and also from Currituck Commissioner Owen Etheridge.  Commissioner Etheridge’s comments, in fact, showed a healthy skepticism of the project.  I have emailed the reporter and asked him to change the headline or else provide support for his contention.  The story can be found here http://www.dailyadvance.com/news/wind-power-generating-excitement-944082.html A link to the reporter is at the top of the story.

If you give them an inch….
