Name calling? That's what you got from my reply? Brilliant. Your comprehension is only outdone by your inane logic.

mike apparently you are use to getting your way and when someone disagrees you start name calling. If you are so panic stricken about this issue don't waste your time on this site go to the next legislature meeting and voice your opinion but I doubt you have a set big enough to do that!

Wonderful analogy (un)concerned. Why worry when there are already fifty ways for the county to have a disaster. What's one more? I'll tell what it is...ONE MORE, another chance for an environmental mess that the county should not have to take. What benefit does the county get from this? A few thousand dollars? And if anything goes wrong the costs outweigh the gains by what? 100 to 1? 1000 to 1? Lowering the chances of this happening is the job of the elected representatives, not raising them. That was and is my point. If you are so unconcerned, put the containment well on your property.

HVANCDY, what does drilling in Alaska with conventional methods have to do with this situation? Other than getting a dig in on a woman that was in way over her head, all you've done is show you're (apparently) stuck in the past. Mr. Edwards was elected to represent and make decisions in the best interest of the people of the county. Do you fell that is the case here, or not?

I don't have the power to do this but maybe a reporter can find out. Was there any money put into the campaign fund of any elected official that might appear to show a possible conflict of interest? From the trucking company, fracking firm, or a shell corporation to make the "donation" not raise any flags? I sure would like to know, wouldn't county residents?

Concerned, is your name Greg Edwards? Your lack of caring about a very real possibility of a leak from the well used to store these chemicals is appaling. Why take the chance for a county wide disaster for such a paltry sum. Any clean up of a spill is going to cost much more and do years of damage. Why don't you re-rout your septic system through your drinking water and let everyone know how great that is for you. I'm sorry but I have to say you really are an idiot. And I don't like using the term, but it's the only one that fits!

And for all the governemnt is US crowd, how's that working out for you? This is a prime example of the disgusting decisions we are forced to endure by these elected "public servants".

This article is spot on. Why have we heard nothing about this prior to this article? Mr. Edwards is willing to put our county in jeopardy, where is the leadership?

Think back to the 50's and 60's. A river in Ohio was on fire due to fuel dumped in it. leaded gas was king. lead fumes everyhere. Buffalo had a refinery and it smelled in South Buffalo. Nuclear testing above and below ground. The steel plants turned Lackawanna orange on a routine basis. The sky lit up and could be seen for miles. So please enviropeople, get a grip on yourselves. the end is not here. where do you think NYC puts its sewage sludge. A great deal is railed out to landfills. I have never seen such routine hysteria from the left. Its mental illness folks.

Very good article, Ms. Amiran. Old wells being used as holding containers for chemical-filled water sounds like a horrible idea. I am beginning to really wonder about Mr. Edwards. He seems to be devoid of any real moral compass or at least indenial about possible dangers to our potable water, which is something we don't want to mess up. I hope Steiner is correct and that food-grade chemicals will be used for fracking. This makes more sense than risking chemicals that will potentially destroy our drinking water.

there is talk of using compressed air and food grade chemicals to frack. yes food grade. I hope this is successful. I want to hear the howl from the enviro people " The air is in danger " Climate change ! With the amount of hysteria seen at present, this should be easy. so learned gals at the LWv's, do you have any replacements for hydrocarbons ? Anything to at least heat our homes ? Dont say green as that does not work 24/7. Come on gals !

Conversion disorder bigtime. Trucks wrecking roads ? nothing new. hazardous chemicals, nothing new . Practically the whole chemical industry runs on hazardous, flammable or carcinogenic chemicals shipped by rail or by truck. A large sewage plant can make 75 truckloads a day of sludge, all trucked 100's of miles out to landfills Minda. Noone knows the chemicals? what a joke. get a sample of the water and send to a good analytical lab. There is no such thing as an unidentified chemical. Besides, someone is making them somewhere and knows. Illegal dumping is very rare. When is the end Minda ? To all the LWV's, you are almost twitching like a Leroy high school gal. Please , the world will not end. You prove again to me why women do not do science. fear grips them.
