Wind farm![edit]

No mention of the wind farm? Really? Really??? Come on, man.. -- (talk) 05:30, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Which wind farm? WP:BEBOLD. tedder (talk) 07:07, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

There are several windfarms that are considered to be in Arlington. Pebble Springs, Rattlesnake, Wheat Field, Leaning Juniper 1 and 2 and the addition, the biggest of them all Shepherds Flat ... consisting over 300+ turbines. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:22, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Really, Wiki, you are going to still leave up the posts about the Mayor?[edit]

Why is this even on there? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:27, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

At the time it may have been the reason that anybody outside of Oregon had heard of Arlington, and they might expect to find something out about it from this Article, but per WP:NOTNEWS, it may be time to remove the information. But not because Wikipedia is censored, because it is not. Wikipedia is not here to provide a squeaky-clean image of any particular place. Could you elaborate on your objections to having the mayoral scandal info in the article? Valfontis (talk) 21:40, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
P.S. Per WP:RECENTISM, undue weight is given to the mayor incident, but if the article's history section was *ahem* fleshed out using cited references to reliable sources, the section wouldn't seem dominated by the more recent info. Valfontis (talk) 21:48, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
I certainly agree that expanding the history section so that this news isn't the only thing left in a reader's mind would be a good option. Perhaps rewording the paragraph about the incident in a way that doesn't use graphic details would be a good idea, too. Jsayre64 (talk) 21:51, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
I believe it should be kept. Removal is usually desired for POV/boosterism reasons. Rewording is fine, though. tedder (talk) 22:37, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
I just edited out some unneeded details, so in my opinion it should be fine now. Kept, but minimized to the relevance it deserves for a city with a long history. Aboutmovies (talk) 23:14, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

InEnTec's plant is not an incinerator.[edit]

Heads up. This article's mention of InEnTec's plasma arc waste disposal plant incorrectly describes it as an "incinerator" even though the plant is zero emission, and the article's embedded links appear to be to politically/ideologically motivated sites. Wired had an article about this [1] (where I learned about it), and the article needs to be corrected to remove bias and factually incorrect info. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:57, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
