Thank you to Mayor Tillman, DISH residents and DISH City Council for shaking things up in the Barnett Shale in a good way.
Now the TCEQ is testing the air in Denton, Wise, Tarrant and Parker Counties. YAY! I hope they do a good job and put the interest of citizens over that of industry.

Here is a picture of the packed meeting room Monday night in DISH, TX.
Here’s a picture of Peggy Heinkel-Wolfe talking to Tim Ruggiero of Wise County who traveled more than 30 miles to attend the meeting.

“With all these health concerns, I don’t understand why there are millions of acres they can’t drill in Alaska because of the elk or caribou, but they can drill 400 feet from my little girl’s trampoline,” Tim Ruggiero said. “Why is that permitted?”
I’m against drilling in the Alaskan Wilderness but he makes and excellent point and no one could answer his question. Here is a picture of the Aruba drilling rig
