Never Brush all Cops With The Same BRUSH…..

Even though I am A bit of freedom lover, I have found that with local, personal interaction, Cops, (Police) are not all bad. Unfortunately the bad eggs amongst them have stained the reputations of my (or nearby Depts) local law enforcement. The corruption of some township officials although not all of them is not apparent at every corner. Some commisioners are hardly able to defend their proposals while scurrying off into a corner and remaining ignorant while others are eager to learn new technology.
On the coldest evenings I have been offered a ride in a cruiser (not face down in the back) and My interaction has been pretty good. They are not intimidated by me and I am certainly not intimidated by them. If they are doing their job, They are probably very concerned about your safety and that is very honorable quality. When we think about “cops” go meet the ones that you interact with and say “Hi” you’d probably be surprised at the return gesture. Respect is a two way street in my book and it’s very, very simple. Honesty and Quality. Be Safe ——————————-IMG_0031FFF

Pipeline Meeting Tonight In New Cumberland PA

…Although this pipeline is just as dangerous as the (Keystone XL or KXL ) and not Nearly as ominous as the (Williams) Pipeline in Lancaster this is a whole new approach to Fossil Fuels. Saying that their lines will drive 2 (two) 24 inch Propane lines to Marcus Hook Philadelphia For Export is truly a slap in the face.
The fact these train cars (usually outdated) and a pipeline that was constructed in 1931 Pipelines are following the The old ROW (right of way) and are being built illegally because “this is not your Grandma’s PIPELINE. NGL’s will be flowing freely to the coast for export. These lines carry carry gases that are heavier then air so when a line busts or leaks, the gas goes undetected for hours. until someone sparks or lights a flame and then causes a major explosion. Ethane , compressed is a very substance dangerous and when it is leaking can go undetected for hours. Sunoco is holding an “Open House” that again has gotten no press coverage and is flying under the radar to create a line no exactually 3 lines beside each other that they again will send out their PR team to hand out Tape measures, camo hats and shopping bags and usually say how safe their fossil fuels are, they will be using TWP police as security and are counting on “educating the public” this is a travesty to the township astetics and claiming they have “eminent domain” over certain land owners The meeting, Tonight in 3.5 hours has been poorly advertised and is said to only effect those in the ROW of the existing pipeline, when this has no qualities of that pipeline. WHY SHOULD I CARE: the “blast -zone of this pipeline is undetermined and could effect the entire township, not just those along the pipeline route. PLEASE ATTEND TONIGHT 5:30 pm to 7:30 and show them we DO NOT WANT PIPELINES IN OUR Township Tonight Feb. 24 5:30 pm @ the FAIRVIEW TWP FIREHALL and join local concerned citizens. Thank You (if you need proof of Sunocologistics Safety Record see www.ksla.com/story/26821113/sunoco-1900…mooringsport-

TOO much time on Twitter….

In order to keep up with the almost illegal announcements of SunocoLogistics Mariner 1, 2, 3 Pipeline projects it has sent me to a forum where I can post information in a more timely manner. I am anxious to communicate with my fellow locals but when Enviro-Concern announcements are 2 hours before the meeting in rural areas. Please stay on top with the  facts  SUNOCO FALLS UNDER A SPIDER WEB OF NAMES AND IS NOW OFFERING A 5 cent OFF per gallon PR campaign. A small clip from the Bloserville Cumberland/Perry Pipeline awareness Meeting.

{Another landowner from Bloserville, Lenny Witmer, also expressed his anger over how Sunoco Logistics has been handling the situation. Even more so, Witmer could not help but wonder where the landowners’ local representatives and politicians were that he believes should be at the informative meetings supporting landowners.

“I’m really irritated with America, the politicians for one,” Witmer said, “The fact that those guys in Harrisburg or Washington, D.C., will bend over backwards for Sunoco, Wal-Mart, Kmart, you name it … but Lenny Witmer that lives in the middle of nowhere — they don’t care.”

Though, while the verdict is already out for many of the landowners when it comes to how they feel about the project, some remain skeptical about the overall outcome. Oscar Barrick, a resident of the Bloserville area, was present when Sunoco took over the Mariner East 1 pipeline that already runs through western Cumberland County. Barrick noted that he was unaware of any accidents that had occurred since the first pipeline had been built, but also added that the new pipeline was going to be “a lot bigger” than the residents think it is going to be, and that as of now, he is unsure how to feel about the entire subject.

For some, however, it is not the new pipeline that has residents concerned. The pipeline that currently exists, Mariner East 1, falls into the lower 4 percent of the oldest pipelines in the nation having been built in 1931. Sunoco said it has since refurbished some of the line, but the pipeline’s age still leaves Thorpe and company concerned about the safety of residents who already have the pipeline running through parts of their property. Thorpe noted that while she is not completely against the pipeline projects, she added that the biggest issue for her is the fight for safer regulations for the existing and potentially new pipeline that could be making its way into the area.

As of now, nothing is set in stone as to whether or not the pipeline will actually be constructed. However, Thorpe noted that the process has been proposed and that the wheels are in motion to get the new pipeline underway.

Thorpe and Van Fleet will host another information meeting for the public within the next two weeks.}

Again the next meeting was is Lebanon County where they have faced the least opposition and least educated landowners in Central PA.

How many were informed of the “Quentin Firehall ” community meeting on the 16th??? I encourage everyone to follow our FB awareness group and a daily follow of @frackFreeFarm on twitter to make sure you are not fooled by their campaign and PR actions. Obviously local officials are NOT on your side!!!!!!54d2f283eb98b.image

    Well you can’t expect Wolf to show up but Bloom and state senator should have been there. Some how we need to have pathways for power lines, gas/ oil lines and rail lines. The logical place would be parallel to interstate highways.

    both Gov Wolfe and STEVE BLOOM were invited, no response from either, so much for our officials

The Marcellus Coalition & Sunoco make fools out of SE PA

Approving the “Mariner East Pipeline 2” this afternoon a  five member committee continues to pour billions (3) into the #fossilfuel industry with no regards for some of the best #Organic  Farmland in PA. This will result in very few careers and few hundred temporary construction jobs. This, like #Covepoint, needs to be addressed immediately before the first pin goes in. Organize at locations all along the Sunoco proposed line and remember that they have NO RIGHTS to be on your property. If there is currently a line running through your property this is a second; and spells T-R-O-U-B-L-E if the initial line were to break. This will also install a 10,000+ HP compressor station every 20 or so miles, straight through the heart of Cumberland County, Dauphin County and others not mentioned but outlined on the diagram. This will also solidify the need to make another “port-city” to export gasses to, creating a potential time-bomb for natural gas explosion.

I appreciated your pathetic attempt to start scaling down the fracking In PA(@GovernorTomWolf) but that is what it was, PATHETIC! You obviously do not know that some of us have had these farms and burial lands in Lancaster, York, Cumberland, and Dauphin counties as well as the Lehigh Valley for Hundreds of years. In the case of some of your native constituents, the land has been owned for thousands of years.

During “DIVEST FROM FOSSIL FUELS DAY” (Feb. 13/14th) think back to what a fool you were for taking  money from the fracking companies for “Safe Drilling”.
