Papalas is so out of touch with today's business. The people of Niles need to get ride of him if they want to get ahead. Do your homework mr school teacher. You get another F. You flunked out a long time ago. It's time for you to go. Don't they have any better than him in that town.

Now that I have seen that the Niles city council scheduled a meeting to discuss this at 1PM in on a weekday, I am starting to wonder if this really is a community approved decision.

The state should appoint a special auditor to make sure Niles and its citizens receives no money from any fracking activity or activity related to it. Did they really think someone was going to drill in a residential neighborhood?

"...nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation."

Uh, I think the federal bill of rights overrides the Niles bill of rights. If you want to deny me access to my mineral rights, you're going to have to reimburse me for my loss.

Niles city government's reckless haste reinforces Alexander Pope's axiom.

When the 2 Niles County Commissioners found out that they could no longer sell Niles water to the oil companies, they were out raged! How could Niles not take the money?

If the citizens of Niles are okay with the "Bill of Rights" that their council passed, more power to them. I think they are missing out on a great opportunity for their citizens to make some money, but it's their community decision.

This "bill of rights" is much needed in the state of Ohio. However, I smell and end run by the Republicans in Columbus to remove home rules from Fracking Industry regulations.
