Wind Woes

A North Dakota man says he'll fight his city to keep his wind turbine.

"Larry Walth thought he was seeing green when he put up a small wind turbine in his backyard on the edge of Wishek's city limits."

"Now, because of failure to conform to city zoning codes, he's been told to take it down by Friday, or face possible fines of up to $500 a day."

"See, Walth is committed to the turbine, which he believes is good for the environment, his own small act of kindness to the planet."
