The day before this meeting an article appeared in the New York Post, entitled "Why Andes is worth a peek." This is worth reading! See what a gem this little town is. So many treasures to be preserved, protected, and shared.
The overwhelming feeling after the town meeting Friday was that fracking does not fit in to the value and beauty of Andes. Will the people prevail and ban hydrofracking? I hope so. If Andes stays strong and resists this destructive industry- the natural gas industry-, not only will it dodge this lethal bullet, but it will also inspire others to do the same.
