It WILL NOT come as long as people do not sign away the mineral rights under their land! And whereRead Mored id our elected official Jim Runestad go? He was introduced and then left?!?!? I encourage you all to visit Eileen Kowell at her website and request to be put on her mailing list for the dates and times she is at Colasanti's, Dave & Amy's & Bakers in Milford holding her get togethers. Here is the information from her website: Kowall’s office hours are held monthly on the first Saturday and Monday of each month, and no appointment is necessary to meet with the representative. Residents who are unable to attend may contact Kowall toll-free from within Oakland County at 866-334-0010, via email at EileenKowall@house.mi.gov or through her website at www.RepEileenKowall.com. http://gophouse.org/representatives/southeast/kowall/contactkowall/

THIS JUST IN FROM EILEEN KOWELL: Good Morning, I’d like to invite you to a town hall meeting Read Moreon the rise of drug use and burglaries in White Lake Township. The event will take place on Tuesday, April 29th at 6:30 p.m. at the Dublin Community Senior Center at 685 Union Lake Road. This meeting will focus on prevention, awareness, and protection. Grandparents, parents, and residents will learn how drugs are introduced to teens, warning signs, and what to look for if you expect drug use. Police will also share the most recent trends on drug abuse within the community-- an important factor in the recent hike in crime. I’ll be sharing progress on legislation addressing this problem. For more information on this community event, call Commissioner Jim Runstead at (248) 802-5500. Hope to see you there. Eileen Kowall

Whether I hold onto my own mineral rights is not the point. Fracking depletes the water table (byRead Morep umping millions of gallons of our water, lacing that water with the fracking extraction chemicals, and then having to permanently store the post-fracked water as if it were nuclear waste), risks ground water/water table contamination by the fracking process itself, and none of those dangers can be protected against merely by my fence line. I am deeply disappointed that the voice of the citizens and readers at http://whitelake.patch.com/groups/announcements/p/fracking-meeting-in-white-lake was scrubbed from dozens of thoughtful and well-said comments down to apparently three as of last check. Nothing was rude or crude, so I am left to wonder if the fracking advertiser(s) are exercising editorial and censorship control over this forum.

Why the need for "eye in the sky" cameras along every major highway. Don't even for aRead Moremin ute tell me its to view traffic conditions and alert the general and local population of backups. It is to monitor any exodus from cities in my opinion, and to better locate you in your car if and when they want to. Have a good day... (Remember George Orwell)
