I have been asked on several occasions, by folks around the country to come and talk about the air study here in DISH. It seems a bit odd to me, but it appears that tiny DISH, TX has been the only municipality to perform a study such as this. I will happily share our story here in DISH with anyone who would like to hear about. I firmly believe that the only way to change the current situation is stand together. I further believe that helping you, where ever you may be, will also help us hear in DISH. Therefore, if you are interested in hearing about our story please contact me directly to discuss the possibilities. I will not accept funding for any travel expenses, but also need to know that my presentation would make a difference. Please give me a call or email for details.

Calvin Tillman is the very definition of HERO. Mayor Tillman is someone you can believe in because he's incredibly honest, and he does the 'right thing' whether it's the popular thing to do or not. So far, most of what I've seen him do is unpopular – at least with the gas companies. Tillman is readily recognizes that the gas companies brought much needed money and jobs not into Dish, but the entire area – but he's also one of the few who has enough courage to speak out and call them on it when they are wrong. I greatly admire Mayor Tillman and the leadership he's shown of this small town.
I think we need to get the word out to the people in Wise and Denton Counties, and have our own 'town hall' meeting, and maybe we could persuade Mayor Tillman to come speak and let the people hear it for themselves-those who have been through the gas well wringer, and those who have yet to have the experience. In all fairness, we would invite Aruba, EnCana, Devon, Chesapeake and any other gas companies to attend- and speak if they want to, whoever, I suspect they will do what they did at the Dish Town Council meeting- stand in the back, hands in their pockets and stare at their shoes.
