1. This is my home town.

We've been dealing with the fracking mess for quite a while, now. Citizen involvement has grown, and we join forces with other communities dealing with the issue. Here are a couple of links to local efforts:

And we were actually surprised by the coverage from our local newspaper, since it's pretty much understood that the publication essentially serves as PR organ of the oil and gas industry:
