ANOTHER HODGEPODGE DAY - THE MAYOR AND EARTHQUAKES

This morning’s article in the Herald concerning the Mayor and the dogfight is ridiculous and evidence of just how biased the Herald has become against the Mayor. It also reflects just how desperate the Herald is to oust the Mayor. I have received multiple complaints by assistant fire chiefs who claim there are multiple safety problems within the fire department which are not being addressed. This is the story behind the story. The Herald refuses to report it because it does not have the drama of Mayor seeks to terminate Chief over chief. When a newspaper is willing to sacrifice the safety and welfare of the people to push their individual contempt for the Mayor it is fair to say the newspaper has become the enemy of the people.

This City Commission needs to demand copies of all complaints by the assistant fire chiefs. They will learn there is a problem. One can only hope a tragedy is not required before the City Commission investigates the problems within the fire department.

CLEBURNE TEXAS - WHERE THE GROUND SHAKES ROCK AND ROLL

No one knows for sure what is happening, but since they began drilling for natural gas in the area, this small town southwest of the DFW area has experienced numerous earthquakes. This is not a new phenomenon. When Russia was still the Soviet Union they perfected the process of setting off underground blasts to cause earthquakes. It has long been believed that a major earthquake in Afghanistan was caused by such a blast.

My question is, should we stop drilling for natural gas in the Cleburne area until the geologists can rule out the drilling as the cause for these earthquakes?
