Bringing an SGEIS hearing here

Or almost here, anyway - to downtown Ithaca, since the DEC seemed too afraid of local feedback to put an event any closer than Binghamton. (Dansville, way outside the fairway for these, no problem! And NYC, well, they had to put one there. But Ithaca? Or even Elmira? No, no, couldn't have that.)

There's also a viewpoint article about fracking and farming worth some deep consideration. How have we reached the point where farmers are willing to play high-stakes Russian Roulette with their land and neighbors?

Also, from the New York Times, if you have a lease or are considering one, you may want to read the details closely.
