Gas wells sought at Rayzor
Mixed-used project might include drilling if council OKs plan
Some neighbors are opposing the drilling, saying it will bring noise and heavy-truck traffic and lower their quality of life.
“No. 1 would be the noise; No. 2 the increase in traffic,” said Brett Darr, who lives on nearby Panhandle Street and is circulating a petition against the drilling that he said has more than 70 signatures.
Your priorities are a little off. Here’s a better list:
No. 1 HEALTH: Go to the Oil and Gas Accountability Project and read about the documented health risks from living near gas wells. And, if that’s not enough, go read the information on The Endocrine Disruption Exchange. Pay close attention when Dr. Colborn says, “The pathway of most concern is air.”
No. 2 SAFETY: Those things blow up.
