More on Dryden, hydrofracking

Today's Ithaca Journal reports on Wednesday night's presentation of 1594 signatures on a petition to ban hydrofracking.

There's also a piece on Dryden events discussing details of leasing and termination to be held April 28th and May 12th.

Several of the speakers at Wednesday's Town Board meeting mentioned the Chesapeake well blowout in LeRoy, Pennsylvania. The Journal reports that Chesapeake has stopped the flow of liquids and claims there will be little impact on Towanda Creek, but has stopped fracking operations in Pennsylvania.

In brighter news, the Cayuga Bird Club will be meeting at Dryden Lake this Saturday, April 23rd, at 7:30am "to enjoy early spring migration".
