A local stream is bubbling methane more than ever. The ground is belching methane in spots where it shouldn't be. And locals are collecting methane in jars and lighting it from those very spots. And a prominent reporter from Harrisburg was there to witness all of that...yesterday.
Yesterday, folks. Monday, July 16, 2012. In Leroy Township, Bradford County. Right off of Rte. 414. Pics and videos aplenty will be on the wires soon.
And what does DEP Secretary Michael Krancer have to say about Leroy?
"The situation is, and at all times was, under control by DEP," he wrote. "Indeed, at this point in time the situation is for the most part over."
So, who's telling the truth? I think you already know.
I've been reading all the comments about the situation at Penn State lately. My son is in the honors college there...so I have some skin in the game.
Here's my two cents:
I would much rather stroke a tuition check to good old PSU than watch taxes taken out of my bi-weekly paycheck to support the incompetency and corruption in Harrisburg.
I spent close to two hours on the phone last night talking to some Ph.D-types about the issues in Leroy. There is a big storm brewing folks.
