The Three Magi on the horizon

To the editor:

The Three Wise Men (the Magi) have arrived on Cape Ann and it isn’t even Epiphany yet. I am talking about the arrival of the three new wind turbines at Blackburn Park.

Congratulations to Varian and the City of Gloucester for looking into the future and making use of 21st century technology.

Some people are saying the swishing sound will be annoying. Just liken it to the soft lapping of the ocean waves on our rocky shores. Or, even repeat the words “money saved” with each swish.

Maybe rather than the Three Wise Men, they are the Three Musketeers, Athos, Porthos and Aramis, waiting for D’Artagnan to arrive. Maybe he will be found in Rockport, owned and operated by the town on town-owned land. I hope so.

Joanne N. Wile,
