    I’m surprised that no one has commented on US Wind Force trying to buy good will in the community. Let’s look at local corporate contributions.
    US Wind Force is donating money to community projects while it hopes to provide more work as it builds out more turbines.
    Verso has contributed 675 unemployed former workers while it dumps black liquor into the Potomac River.
    At the same time everyone wants Verso back and no one wants US Wind Force.

    That’s they tax payers money just being given back to them in the form of grants. No one wants Verso back just someone who wants to run a paper mill.
