please check the following website. it covers information about the gas fracking proposed by the gas companies in our area. we use to have the best water in the county and now they want us to sign away our mineral rights for what.... poisoned waters!!! there is no amount of money they can throw at me to allow them to do this to us!!!!

speak out! i'd like to take comments.... i hope you feel the same way i do.

Do some deeper research. This has been proven false. There is no known danger to fracking. It may be the only thing that saves the country. In case you haven't noticed, we are in serious debt because of reliance on foreign energy. It does not have to be this way. The United States can be self-sustaining and thrive again if the kooks shut up and let the nation prosper. Stop with the rumor spreading and scare tactics already!

I'm all for cheaper energy and not being reliant on foreign fuels. I'm not a crazy wacko environmentalist left winger.

i love the Tuscarawas valley and want nothing but the best. i cant blame people for taking the big $$ the industry is throwing at them most of us wouldn't know what to do with that kinda cash.But it WILL effect ALL of us and until they can prove to me that there is no way in FRACKING hell this will destroy everything I love i will continue to speak out and spread the word of what i believe in my heart of hearts.

what good is cheaper fuels if you cant drink the water! i can live and make due, adjust to the energy issues but i cant live without water.

you can believe what ever blasphemous b.s. the industry sells you but i won't.

There hasn't been enough research to say either way. We should proceed cautiously. There are costs and benefits to both sides of this argument.
But I believe we should wait to see what investigations bring to light before we risk the futures of our childeren and grand childeren.

Ok Beth that's all I was looking for. Just caution until we know the facts. I know there are people who feel very strongly on bothsides of this issue.

This was in the Times Reporter.... the industry acknologes contamination issues on one breath then denies it with the next.

All the claims of contamination are not unfounded... we need more research and information before we give them free access to our lands and waters...

Less than 50% of the drilling waters full of these nasty chemicals are removed after drilling practices are conducted. These chemicals do not just disapear, or go away they go somewhere....
