A billionaire’s planning application for wind turbines has provoked anger among his neighbours.

Today’s Isle of Man Examiner reports on the Port Erin community’s reaction to John Whittaker’s proposal.

Also this week we report on the death of well-known businessman Brian Mylchreest, who was 97. We remember his distinguished record during the war.

The paper also includes:

Interviews with the three recipients of awards in the Queen’s Birthday Honours

>A report about the disruption to an A-level examination in one of our secondary schools

>PokerStars tells our business reporter that its staff in Onchan should not worry about the takeover

>News that the government is seeking a new tourism director, two years after a similar position was axed. The salary is negotiable.

>A campaign for a shop in Marown. There is nowhere to pop out to buy a pint of milk in the whole parish.

>An account of the charity sleepover at the top of Snaefell

>A two-page feature about Belle, the new film that is to hit cinemas this week

With our great sports section, Final Whistle, 12 pages of business news, the island’s social diary and the best forum for your views in our letters pages, the Examiner is an essential read this week.
