To the editor:

I am writing this to the members of the community who may read your paper and articles, specifically about the Rail Splitter Wind Farm in northern Logan/southern Tazewell County, but also for any other associations that could possibly be made.

My name is Sheryl Rae (Knauer) Wagoner. I am married to Brian Wagoner, and we live in the country in Emden. I work for the Logan County Farm Bureau in Lincoln.

There is also a Cheryl Wagner (no "o") who resides in the country in Emden, not too far from where we live. I believe she currently has her house for sale (it is actually in a section called Union).

I would like it clarified that there are indeed two very different people with very similar names, living in the same general area. She happens to be very much against the Rail Splitter Wind Farm, whereas I am very much for it.

After being approached by several people about a couple of different articles that have appeared in the past month, I felt the need to make the clarification.

So, I want everyone to know that I, Sheryl Wagoner, am for wind energy and think it is a great resource for the future and one that I am glad Logan County has seen worth their approval.

Thank you,

Sheryl R. Wagoner
