OLIVIA -- Olivia's famous corn monument is about to be overshadowed, and by the doing of its own city fathers no less.

All of the components for a wind turbine to be erected for the Olivia Municipal Utilities are now on site. Workers should be pouring the cement foundation for its tower in the days ahead, according to Dan Hoffman, Olivia city administrator.


He is hopeful of seeing the new tower erected and generating electricity for the city by Thanksgiving.
