Indiana becomes the fastest growing state in Wind Energy!

Welcome to the first ever Indiana Wind Energy Week! In the last eighteen months, we have begun to embrace our full wind potential. In 2007 we did not produce any electricity from wind resources.

And we are projected to produce 836 MWs of wind-generated power, from four separate Hoosier Wind Farms, in 2009!! This astonishing growth… Continue

NYE @ The Hog Barn!

“Another fresh new year is here . . .

Another year to live!

To banish worry, doubt, and fear,

To love and laugh and give!



This bright new year is given me

To live each day with zest . . .

To daily grow and try to be

My highest and my best!



I have the opportunity

Once more to right some wrongs,

To pray for peace, to plant a tree,

And sing more joyful songs!”
