AMARILLO, TEXAS -  The winds of change are blowing.... but not in our area. Several massive wind farms have been built recently in Western Oklahoma -each create about 200 temporary jobs and about 15 permanent positions.

But developers say that they are being forced to choose other areas over the Texas Panhandle because of our lack of transmission lines. That's something that's had a hard time being built here because of poor public opinion.
