Natural gas workshop set

NEW CASTLE — A natural gas workshop has been set for Jan. 24 in Slippery Rock.

Landowners in the area have been approached with seismic testing and pipeline agreements. As a result, they face various questions including: Is this an option or a lease? How many pipes? Is this agreement worth $200 per acre or $60,000 per acre?

To answer these and other questions, Penn State Extension will offer a natural gas workshop “Seismic Testing, Pipeline Agreements and Leasing Update” at the Slippery Rock Township Building, 155 Branchton Road.

The session will run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Presenters will include Dan Brockett and Jon Laughner from the Penn State Marcellus Education Team. They will provide information on seismic testing and pipeline right-of-ways and what options may be available for landowners. A question-and-answer period will follow the discussion.

Pre-registration is required by calling the Butler County Extension Office at (724) 287-4761.

There will be a $10 fee per person collected at the door.

More information is available by contacing Laughner at (724) 774-3003.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 fell from the sky in Donetsk, Ukraine, on Thursday, killing all 298 people aboard. Many are speculating that Russian rebels (supported by Vladimir Putin) are responsible for downing the aircraft. What do you think?

Yes. All evidence points that way.
No. Everyone is so quick to point fingers, but there's not enough evidence to support claims of Russian guilt.
I'm not sure. I'll just wait until the investigation is over to make up my mind.
What is up with these Malaysian Airlines planes? I know one airline I won't be flying any time soon...
