The question remains

I made a mistake in my earlier post.
The D&L Northstar #1 induced quakes occurred in a ENE-WSW direction, not NW-SE.

The location of the quakes remain in a SE to NW path, from Poland through Youngstown. Niles is in that path.

This still does not mitigate the potential danger the State is placing the Valley in. They're playing with fire, and need to cease all drilling until research is completed on this threat. Niles does not need to be the next guinea pig in this experiment:

Also, the Los Angeles City Council recently voted to ban fracking:

The question remains

Speaking of the Exxon CEOs' massive hypocrisy, could we have our very own version right here in the Valley? Or is this a different person?

"Ellsworth Twp. zoning lawsuit targets debris, trustee"

One of the plaintiffs, Paul A. Lyden, complained in April 2010 to the township zoning office about an 18-acre undeveloped property on state Route 45 and a 5-acre property at 5620 Gault Road.
Both are owned by Basista Holdings LLC, of which David J. Lewis is listed as the registered agent. Lewis and his wife, township trustee Laura Lewis, reside on the Gault Road property, which is listed as Basista’s mailing address.
For several years, Lyden said steel-mill waste and construction debris have accumulated on the Route 45 property, which is directly in front of the Lyden property.
“The materials constitute an eyesore and possible safety hazards, and we have reason to believe that the runoff from the mill scale is further contributing to existing environmental contamination present at his site,” Lyden wrote in a complaint letter to the township zoning office.
Lyden also complained that buildings have been constructed on the residentially zoned Gault Road property without zoning permits and that the property is being used for business activities.

The question remains

The State needs to release an immediate cease & desist order on the Niles/Weatherfield Injection Well.

Just connect the dots: Poland fault/s lubricated in the SE area of Mahoning Co. The Precambrian fault running through Youngstown is already lubricated, causing the Northstar #1 quakes. And now whatever fault/s exist under the Niles area are likely to be lubricated as well, within months, if not weeks, of the Niles well activation. As the article states, it's very possible the fluids migrated down to the Precambrian underneath the Hilcorp drilling site.

A deep, well-lubricated faultline stretching from Poland, through Ytown, to Niles in a SE to NW trajectory - not only represents the directional drilling taking place, but the direction of the fault/s - line/s discovered after the Northstar quakes.

I believe that if the Niles well is allowed to begin operations, it will lead to a catastrophic event for the entire Mahoning Valley by the end of the year.

The State needs to stop this well from going online ASAP.

BREAKING NEWS | ODNR halts shale drilling in Poland after earthquakes

This is a de facto admission that fracking causes earthquakes. We've known that injection wells do, but now we know fracking does as well.

And ODNR HAD to do this because they know it to be true, as 3 separate studies from 3 different countries have all concluded that fracking causes earthquakes:

1) Canada:

2) United States:

Ex-mayor Sammarone says he should have known better

There's another solution: Quit voting for the ol boyz and, instead, vote for people of integrity like a Susie B. There's no law saying you have to vote either Dem or Repub. Vote Green Party and maybe, just maybe, we can move forward in this City/Valley...

Fracking discussion Friday to reach for common ground

"Common ground?"

With a State government that's in bed with the oil & natgas industry?

With a newspaper that's listed as a potential ally in ODNR/Kasich's Frackgate memo?

The silence from state/industry apologists over the Frackgate scandal is deafening...

ODNR draws up plans to promote parks for drilling

Looks like the Vindy forgot to mention the very small and insignificant fact that the Vindicator was one of only FIVE media outlets listed on Kasich's Enemies List as a potential ___ALLY!___

I'm sure it was just an innocent oversight.

Youngstown council paves way for steel-pipe threading facility

This article provides a very graphic description of Youngstown's urban blight crises:

"So, in a perverse vicious cycle, the cities themselves will likely be on the hook to dig deeper into their already decimated tax bases, and foot the bill to remove the houses. It is a no-win situation: ignore the problem, and watch the blight and disinvestment spread even farther, or spend money that you don’t have, raise taxes, and drive more residents and businesses away, in order to try to keep things from getting worse."

"If you are skeptical about this future projection, the future is already here. Today, over 15,000 houses in Cleveland sit abandoned. In Akron, the number is around 2,300. And in Youngstown, a city of 65,000, that used to have 170,000 residents, an estimated 5,000 abandoned houses and 20,000 vacant lots pose a problem almost too overwhelming to comprehend."
