Response to Recent Correspondence
Dear Ms. Bose:
In a recent filing with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“Commission”),

“threatened eminent domain” against homeowners along the
proposed Sabal Trail route. Sabal Trail and Spectra Energy take
these Continue reading Sabal Trail Strikes Back
A Colquitt County resident spelled out a series of eminent domain threats
to her, plus the background of the infamous Stewart County eminent domain ruling Sabal Trail has used to threaten landowners in other counties.

Protest of Sandra Y Jones under PF14-1 (PDF),
Federal Energy Regulatory Commissioners:
an interview with Spectra’s Andrea Grover in
today’s Valdosta Daily Times newspaper requires a response from an
impacted landowner and please note that I am only one of possibly
over a thousand in the same position. Ms. Grover asserts that
allegations from homeowners that surveyors threatened eminent domain
on their properties
“hard to believe.”
Grover may be right that surveyors have not threatened eminent
domain, but Spectra Energy and Sabal Trail land agents certainly
have. In the second letter I received from this company dated
September 16, 2013 (see attachments) requesting my signature for
permission to survey my two tracts of land, the use of Georgia

Sabal pipeline protest today,
VALDOSTA — Wiregrass Activists for Clean Energy will be
protesting the proposed Sabal Trail Pipeline today.
The protest will be located on the corner of Park Avenue and
Patterson Street from 4-5 p.m.
The VDT neglected to mention that that’s Sabal Trail’s Valdosta office address,
Sabal Trail opened back in December. Continue reading Sabal pipeline protest today –VDT
Spectra’s Andrea Grover admitted trees don’t grow back fast,
a “need to draw that line in the sand” and “we’re now moving forward”.
This is the kind of “working with the landowners and the communities”
that the Valdosta Daily Times found when it went to the local Sabal Trail office.
STT plans to file with FERC at the end of October.
But Spectra’s Andrea Grover admitted they need complete survey data,
and Sabal Trail admitted they have no Georgia customers,
which means they have no Georgia eminent domain,
so every landowner who refuses is indeed putting a crimp into Spectra’s
fracked methane pipeline.
