NIMBY wins

To the Editor:

I implore all those who complained and pitched a fit about a few trees possibly being cut down for power lines on the Knox Road and Crooked Road to drive, walk or bike down Route 3 and see the swath that has been cleared for the new power lines to go through.

I think if this was truly about trees, Mother Nature would be shaking her head. Lets call it what it truly is, a “Not in My Backyard” (NIMBY) mentality.

It is a shame to see a Blue Star Highway destroyed so a handful of people didn’t have to look at a pole in front of their house.
