A petition in support of the proposed Fourmile Ridge wind project in Garrett County, Md., has gathered 127 signatures, regulatory filings showed. Approval of the wind project "would lay the groundwork for a definitive environmental awareness in Garrett County and also support our most important industries, including health care and education, with extra tax dollars," the petition states. Critics say the project may mar the landscape and pose a danger to air navigation and wildlife.
