I'd say the 'Mall' is getting closer and closer to the demolition ball.  Malls are out of fashion anyway.  The idea hatched in the late 50 and early 60's has run it's course.  Time to move on...

The good news is that it does not appear that they have hit anything but dry holes in the last couple of years. 

Sometimes it only takes one very motivated person to accomplish a lot!!!

The hole across the road actually 'pumped' a couple tanker loads of crude before it petered out.  If you want to drive out, we can walk back there and you can see what a mess it is.  You can see the contaminated water all around it, the full and overflowing containment pit and all the junk left.  No fence, no public restriction, nothing.  Just a crap hole in the middle of a farm field.  It's been 'sold' 3 times now. (according to state records) but nothing what so ever has been 'done' to it.

Now, the talk is of reopening it and drilling 'horizontally' to an existing well.  The only ones I know of are the 3 holes north of Cake Road, 2, next to the road way that have been dry for at least a decade and I presume not plugged and one a bit farther north that was poked about 10 years ago next to the Spohr homestead that never did squat.

The producing well (on Deerfield Road) is owned by another concern and is maintained and fenced so I'm thinking the horizontal bore will be to the Cake Road holes and that puts the bore directly under our farm.  I will state here that if it's the case and they destroy our well, I'll litigate it.  O have the funds and a very zealous attorney that loves stuff like this.
 These people need to be held accountable for their actions and how those actions impact ordinary citizens and in my opinion, the MDNR is spineless.  They are more concerned with wetland mitigation and preserving mosquito's than anything else.

The township doesn't have the authority to enforce the ordinance that they are proposing so at the very least it will give them grounds to make a BIG stink if another well is proposed. That should draw attention to the process at that time and maybe keep oil drillers out of the area.
Chandler knows it's not enforceable but is Summerfields best option until legislation can be put in place for Karst areas like Monroe County. Chandler is very proactive and is basically the reason anybody else in the state is paying attention. If it wasn't for his efforts we would have a new disposal well up and running already !!

There is more going on out here than is being talked about to the public.  If scorn Zorn would quite dragging his fat feet and did what he was supposed to do instead of constantly stumping (and lying) to his constitutients,  things would be a lot farther along.  Some of the statements from governmental agencies like 'is it really a Karst Region, the 'company geologists (oil company that is), say no' really fly in the face of what is right and just.  I really hope Bill Lavoy runs against Zorn.  Zorn needs to go.  He's like Walberg, a 2 faced lying professional politician that is only concerned about his own well being, getting 'party favors' from the powerful lobbyists in Lansing and not about what the 'people on the ground' want.

Knowing John personally, I can vouch for his principles.  He's all about the 'right thing' for Summerfield Township residents and Monroe County in general in as much as the entire county is porous limestone geology.

Zorn isn't and neither is Walberg.  2 turds that get voted in by complacient, ill informed voters.

I posted this at least once before.

It's the video I shot of the March 15th (Ides of March!!!) Ida tornado from 2012.  My camera has lots of zoom and it does look like we're a lot closer than we really are.

We were about three miles away and actually a mile south as the tornado was moving northeast.  The secret was to keep an eye peeled for a new one that might decide to develop to the southwest of us!

This tornado did destroy a home on Ida Center Road. 

The microphone on my palmcorder is right in front of my face when I'm recording.  I don't breathe as hard as it makes it sound on the video although that was about the time I had a stent put in so I may have been having trouble breathing.  I know it was hot and humid that night.

As you can hear in the audio EMD was on their toes and had the sirens sounding.  That was probably at least the 2nd and maybe even the 3rd time they had been sounded that evening.

As little as we're concerned with earthquakes we do have what seems like more than our share of tornadoes. 

Here is a link to some home movies from the 1965 Palm Sunday tornado in north Toledo and Erie townships.
