Stick to Music, Rolling Stone

A deeply biased Rolling Stone propaganda piece, which posted online this week, seeks to scare, instill fear and flatly misinform readers about an Indiana County community where anti-energy activists are waging an unconstitutional battle against a local company’s state- and federally approved proposed operations.

Digital H2O Comes to the Marcellus/Utica

Digital H2O is a “digital oilfield water management solutions company.” What the heck does that mean? Water is not only the key ingredient in life, it’s also the key ingredient in the shale industry.

Dead-End NY: Empire State Business and Manufacturing Blues

Tom Shepstone Shepstone Management Company, Inc.     Andrew Cuomo’s Start-Up NY program might better be called Dead-End NY for all the good it’s done; a lousy 722 jobs for a taxpayer rip-off of $59 million. “An upstate jobs ticket to hell” was how I described Start-Up NY last year, noting it was Governor Corruptocrat’s “Rube…

Maryland Has A Bad Case of Tunnel Vision

K.J. Rodgers Crownsville, Maryland   …. ….  A proposed Maryland wind farm demonstrates the state’s tunnel vision on the subject of energy as it prioritizes political correctness over common sense.  The Marine Corps taught me many important lessons that I carry with me today.
