Don't Frack Ohio starting this weekend: three days of education and activism

With two days of training on the weekend and a rally on Monday, Ohioans are gathering to protest fracking.

Cross posted from Pruning Shears.

Activists across Ohio are preparing for a weekend of activities in the northeast part of the state. On Saturday and Sunday, July 27th and 28th, at the First Congregational Church in Ravenna, there will be two days of trainings designed to give us the tools we can use to build a powerful movement that will achieve our right to clean air and water and democracy. At the "Don't Frack Ohio 2" Rally in Warren on July 29th we will tell our policymakers that we do not want to be a fracking wasteland. Music and info at 11:30 and the rally starts at 1:30 at the Trumbull County Courthouse in Warren.

Adventures in cord cutting

Tags: 

A few weeks ago the reception on my satellite TV service mysteriously went kaput. I put in a service request and the company said the earliest anyone could get out was in a week. This gave us some time to live without any traditional broadcast television, and after a few days we were getting along without it pretty well. (I would think cable companies would prioritize service a little more in order to prevent customers from making that discovery, but apparently that's a rare issue.) Read below the fold...
