    This reads like a good soap story…Throw away the TV there is lots of good reading check this out on page 26..

    ” Rommé expressed his frustration in an email to Erik Duncan, an Invenergy LLC official, in which he
    wrote “[i]f you are in the mood, how about walking in the Elkins FWS office and giving Christy a big ole’
    smack across the back of her head?” E-Mail from Russ Rommé, Director, BHE Envtl., Inc., to Erik
    Duncan, Invenergy LLC (July 11, 2007, 4:34 PM) (Pls.’ Ex. 69). Duncan replied, “I think I’m always in
    the mood to smack a few FWS and USACE [United States Army Corps of Engineers] employees, can
    never get anything due to their bureaucratic hierarchy.” E-mail from Erik Duncan, Invenergy LLC to Russ
    Rommé, Director, BHE Envtl., Inc. (July 11, 2007, 9:44 PM) (Pls.’ Ex. 69).

    Well you can see industrial wind LLC is a great partner…

    Wouldn’t you love to hear what US Wind Force is saying about this case…?

    Here is a little interesting find….page 44…
    Karen Tkyrell is the witness that US Wind Force brought to the hearing for the Pinnacle Knob Project…so there you go…the Federal District Court finds her not a qualified witness..

    Karen Tyrell, Ph.D.
    Karen Tyrell received a Ph.D. in Biology in 1990. She has been on the faculty of
    two major universities and has developed training materials for federal and state
    environmental programs. During the last 30 years, she has designed and implemented
    scientific and applied studies that focus on the ecology and conservation of bats. Tyrell
    started working with the Indiana bat in 1985 and has served on the FWS Indiana Bat
    Recovery Team for the last 15 years. She has used various types of ultrasound detectors
    since 1983. She is currently a Senior Vice President at BHE and her principal duties
    include business development, project management, and staff development. Tyrell is also
    a member of several industry advisory committees addressing the environmental impacts
    of wind power facilities.

    The Court finds that although Tyrell has significant experience in bat ecology, the
    credibility and weight of her testimony is diminished because she had little if any
    involvement at the Beech Ridge Project, her principal function is to actively market
    BHE’s services to the wind power industry, and she is closely involved with the
    American Wind Energy Association, an advocacy group for the wind power industry.
