I know Columbiana Co became part of it a number of years ago (we weren't at first, even tho we could have been, because of the stigma, but then we needed to be for the money). But we were always the northernmost county.

"The state says the company that set off the Ohio quakes was following rules and appeared to be using common practices. It just got unlucky"

It just got unlucky?? Real scientific term there. California gets unlucky on a regular basis too.

Unlucky. Regardless of how you feel about fracking, that is an idiotic thing to say.

Explain to me how it got unlucky .

This is just another point to consider in the fracking process.

Another is want is going to happen when all the waste water is pumped back into the ground in connection with good water supplies .

Whoa, wait Q and Bug, considering who used that word, I'm not so sure that word is a bad choice.

"Unlucky" doesn't classify as excusable. It can mean, tough luck drilling industry, you still can be held accountable and pay for damages. I think we need to wait and see how this all plays out.

This battle is going to wage on "man made" vs. "natural".

There is already a group of people getting ready to jump on the "facking has caused damage" to my home. The Insurance Industry is whispering behind closed doors now. And we all know what that means.

I have feeling this is going to get UGLY.
