Hello NickI would like you to know our township, Dimock is Beautiful. It's SAD a hufandl of people that live on Carter Road has caused so many to believe a lie. They let greed distort the truth. The media as everyone knows is selective in what they broadcast. Negative news sells, right! I will tell you we live in a township (Dimock) where there are hills, wetlands, pastures, lakes, farms, open land and forests. Many different types of wildlife, you can look out your window and be surprised each time. We have rabbits of course, ground hogs, fox, wild turkeys, white tailed deer, bobcats, and black bears to name a few. A large variety of beautiful birds, we are a rural community. I am happy that the real truth is starting to be told, and most of all people want to know the truth. There is hope for humanity.A Well pad is built, a drilling rig is brought in and set up. There are rigs scattered throughout our area. But this is a temporary event, quite amazing. After the wells are drilled, the land is reclaimed. The landowner has many options, like trees planted, grass, a food plot for wildlife, or made back into a pasture. the gas companies have been keeping their word. Also the gas companies have been rebuilding many of our roads, they have never been better.I'm sure other people will be following this discussion, I don't have answers to all of your questions. But hang in there you will get them. Drilling is continuing throughout the area. Because of the select few on Carter Road, one of our government agencies DEP has put a moratorium on a nine square mile tract of land surrounding Carter Road. There has been more water testing of various water wells in our area by government agencies. Some of the results are available to the public, more results are expected in the near future.I can tell you our water from our well is fine, and if you ask other people from our township you will hear the same amswer. Stay tuned I'm sure other people from our area will be responding.Thanks for writing and wanting to know the truth!J&D

I am sorry to learn of your family sorrow. The death of a loved one is painful. If I may, I'd like to share scripture found in your Bible that may comfort you in some way. John 6:40 reads...For this is the will of my Father, everyone that beholds the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him in the last days. You see, according to this promise, we have hope.

Sharon thinking of you & your family ...
Praying that you'll sense Godís presence
In this time of grief
And feel Godís love surrounding you
And know His inner peace
For God cares so much for you
And wipes each tear you cry
You never need to feel alone
For Heíll never leave your side
