The wind farm will have a capacity of approximately 150 megawatts and will consist of up to 72 wind turbines. All wind turbines are proposed to be located in Het- tinger County. Facilities proposed to be located in Stark County are limited to Undergrddhd electrical' collection systems and cabling. Additional facilities include access roads, electrical collection systems and cabling, and meteorological evaluation towers. Total cost of the wind project is estimated at $243 million. The hearing will begin at 9 a.m. in Memorial Hall, 925 Main Street. The project will be located ad- jacent to the southern boundary of the proposed Brady Wind Energy Center, which is under considera- tion by the PSC. The transmission line proposed to serve the Brady Wind Energy Center will also serve this second project and the projects will share temporarY lay- down and turbine storage areas, an operations and maintenance build- ing, and substation equipment will be located in the same area for both projects. The project area would encom- pass approximately 20,317 acres. It is estimated the permanent struc- tures will occupy approximately 74 acres during operation. The hearing provides an oppor- tunity for the public to contribute to the PSC's official record. Any comments from members of the public must be received at the hearing to be part of the record. i People with concerns, questions or Don't trust your phone's caller ID Your phone rings. You look at your caller ID. It's a name or a num- ber you might recognize. But don't believe your caller ID. Technology makes it easy for scam- mers to fake caller ID information, so the name and number you see aren't always real. Scammers are using fake caller ID information to trick you into thinking they are someone you trust - like a government agency, your bank, a company you do business with, even the police department, the American Association of Retired Persons says. This practice is Called caller ID spoofing, and scammers don't care whose phone number they use. Don't rely on caller ID to verify who's calling since it's difficult to tell whether the caller ID information is real. Here are a few tips for handling these calls: If you get a strange call from the government, hang up. Government employees won't call out of the blue to demand money or account infor- mation. Don't give out - or confirm - any personal or financM information to anyone who calls. Don't wire money or send Rent this space for only a few dollars a 872-3755 for money using a re-loadable card. In fact, never pay someone who calls out of the blue, even if the name or num- ber on the caller ID looks legitimate. Are they pressuring you to act immediately? Hang up. That's a st]re sign of a scare. Remember this: if someone calls asking for money or personal infor- mation, hang up. You should also hang up on robo- calls. If you answer the phone and hear a recorded message, hang up and report it to the Attorney General'S of- rice. Robocalls are illegal in North Dakota. And don't press 1 to speak to a person or to be taken off the call list. That will likely lead to more calls. Billings County Pioneer P.O. Box 156, Beach, ND 58621 (U.S.ES. Pub.
