New wind turbine has Olivia buzzing


OLIVIA -- It's a late, muddy and vexing harvest and the conference champion BOLD football Warriors are marching into the playoffs.

And yet, the topic that is getting talked up the most in Olivia this week is the newly erected wind turbine.

Mayor Bill Miller and City Administrator Daniel Hoffman stopped by Wednesday to see the final steps in the process.

Both expressed their surprise at just how much attention the turbine has generated in the community.
