Strange she worries about the drilling rigs rolling thru the village one or two times but refuses to do anything about the heavy truck and tractor trailer traffic which is already destroying the village infrastructure, congesting the streets, and disrupting the tranquility.

I am surprised that the negative welcome to these gas companies is the mind frame. The companies are known to repair any damage caused by their existance.
I pass through and shop in Owego many times a year and have noticed more and more homeless people and riff raff walking the streets. The gas company will also bring in a working class of people that will spend money and need places to live. If the town is'nt cleaned up, they will live elsewhere.
If managed correctly, this can be the break Owego and Tioga county needs to boost its economy and housing market to unprecedented levels. I like Owego and hope they would prosper at this opportunity.
