Locals are concerned about the health of mankind, of everybody,
and call on our elected and appointed officials to stop the Sabal Trail
fracked methane invasion.
I haven’t heard too much from the elected officials in Terrell County as concerned.
As a matter of fact,
I haven’t heard from our state representative.
Even our Senator who represents this area, on the
health of the citizens that live in this area.

Agritourism, economy, and environment were among the reasons
Terrell County followed
and passed a resolution against the Sabal Trail pipeline.
FERC didn’t post the County Chairman’s cover letter, but the County Clerk sent it to me.

$3.7 Billion, 460-mile gas pipeline from Central Alabama to Central
Florida known as the Sabal Trail, and:

stations used to force the natural gas through the pipelines, and:

A FERC comment period ending 15 November 2014 seems to mean
Sabal Trail will miss its 31 October formal filing date.
No relief suggested for crossing the Withlacoochee River at the border
of Brooks and Lowndes Counties, Georgia (or inside Lowndes County
next to Valdosta, according to
several of the previous alternatives).
And every proposed path still crosses the Suwannee River
into Suwannee County.
Maybe that’s because
the Dougherty County Commission and
the Albany City Council actually stood up for
Gilchrist County (see Wacassassa Flats Alternative),
Suwannee County Commission
swallowed Sabal Trail disinformation and
the Lowndes County
Commission and the Valdosta City Council did
one letter from the Chairman)
one letter from one Council member).
There’s still time for Dougherty, Lowndes, and all the other
counties and cities
to pass ordinances, and to lobby state and federal agencies and
elected and appointed officials.
Oh, and there’s an election going on.
Also no mention of
