Breaking News: Ravenna Township Supervisor: No Fracking Moratorium

At the June 13 monthly meeting of the Ravenna Township Board, Township Supervisor Ken Punter said that there will be no moratorium on the drilling of two oil wells within the township's boundaries, in spite of the fact that the township's fire department lacks a hazardous materials (HAZMAT) team.  He indicated that the township is relying on the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) to police the Rosetta Natural Resources operation, which will involve hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") of shale layers as much as a mile or more underground.  As the wells have been permitted by the MDEQ, drilling could begin at almost any time.  Rosetta is a Texas-based company founded in 2005.  Its application for the MDEQ permit had indicated the likelihood of encountering toxic hydrogen sulfide gas in the process of drilling the wells.

Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with Search Engine Optimization? I'm trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I'm not seeing very good gains. If you know of any please share. Appreciate it!|

Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.|
