    Too much power

    for PSB

    On the front page of the Rutland Herald, Feb. 12, there is a picture of the three-person Public Service Board.

    This board holds within its power the ability to destroy or protect all that we know and love of Vermont. With one nod, Lowell Mountain is destroyed. With another, Sheffield.

    If the Grandpa’s Knob wind project comes before them, the decision will be made by two men, because one member is recusing himself.

    Apparently Select Board decisions, town plans, environmental laws and public sentiment hold no weight in comparison with the absolute power this board wields.

    What’s wrong with this picture?
