Holabird AdvocateProviding all the news we see fit to print since 2002!

There have been all kinds of traffic on the shows website this week. In fact, according to the circulation department, we need just one more person to log on to exceed the total hits for all of July. All from one little visit to MTI one supposes. They are reading us from as far away as Washington, DC and they are even reading us in Castlewood, SD. Hopefully they we're bored so much and will come back again.
Another blogger who was at the MTI made a point of mentioning that the first part of the roundtable last Tuesday was closed to the media and the public, a fact that was not in the paper, but it really doesn't matter to me. I was just thrilled to learn as much as I did.
Rep. Noem's office gave me a press release stating that MTI is expects to have 42 students in first year of their Wind Turbine Tech class next fall, and 29 in the second year. From what I've seen, those students will learn a whole lot, if they make it through.
One thing is for sure. We need to find new sources of energy. I can understand the reluctance to get behind wind power after the Solyndra mess. We need a winner, and I hope Rep. Noem's faith in windpower is a justified as it is genuine.
I'm going to have a busy weekend starting tomorrow. I will try to get back with something new by Sunday. Hopefully it will be on another topic, because I have a feeling that I have driven this one into the ground.
