IN OHIO PARK LANDS??????????
What got me interested in this was the news article concerning Gov. Kasich proposed drilling for natural gas “Fracking” in the Ohio State Park system( I really like our parks) For the past few days I have been researching what this might mean for the state of Ohio. Initially, I was aghast this might happen. Let me say I am all for “energy independence” and responsible “economic growth”. Lack of jobs,government deficits,and the recession sure hasn’t been a picnic. If you are at all interested watch this 60 minutes program. (There is some balance to the presentation.)
The statement I liked and my opinion at this time; “Promote natural gas but hold the industry accountable to higher standards.”
Oklahoma City-based Chesapeake Energy Corp., a leading U.S. producer of natural gas and would probably be the company to take the lead in developing this natural resource. From what I have read this would be the best company for the job

“Kasich says Marcellus Shale could be ‘godsend’ for Ohio” John Kasich on Dec. 30 said natural gas drilling in a geological formation that stretches into Ohio could boost the state’s economy by attracting businesses and helping to put skilled workers back on the job.

‘FRACKING” CAN BE PRETTY SCARY. DO YOUR OWN GOOGLE//YOUTUBE SEARCHES AND SEE WHAT I MEAN. IF OHIO APPROVES THIS AND THE DRILLING GOES AHEAD WE JUST NEED TO PRAY IT IS DONE RIGHT WITH THE PROPER OVERSIGHT. AT LEAST MR. MUSTINE THE NEW HEAD OF THE OHIO DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES IS AN ORDAINED MINISTER. LOL
As always thanks for stopping by. Sorry, I haven’t posted in awhile. I do have a couple stories in the “works” Recently, I did a post on Mott’s Military Museum (logo upper right sidebar) Well I liked the place so much I now volunteer their on Fridays 1:00 to 5:00. Mike the other volunteer in this time slot likes to travel as much as I do and has given me a lot of new ideas/places to visit.
