This doesn’t surprise me.
Nurseryman suspects pipeline is source of woes
What does surprise me is that the Messenger reported it. But, YAY! I’m glad they did.
I made a comment. Let’s see how long it takes the Big Gas apologists and Brenda Rankin to respond with the typical personal attacks and saying how wonderful Big Gas is for Wise County.
Will this be Wise County’s legacy?

Gee, lets see – which is easier to believe:
1. There’s a gas pipeline with a leak, and liquid coming out, so the “natural gasoline” type liquid probably came from there.
2. At great risk to his own livelihood, this landowner poisoned his own soil with some 87 octane to “frame” the operator of the pipeline.
Ever heard of Occam’s Razor?
