Gas companies don't come clean on fracking

Thank you for another wonderful article concerning the problems with drilling ("Gas firms don't disclose all drilling risks, group reports," Dec. 12).

Just three hours north of Baltimore in Sullivan County, Pa. is a quiet community called Eagles Mere — also known as The Town that Time Forgot. It has been a summer retreat over a hundred years and also has great hiking, fishing, kayaking and lovely forests. It, too, has recently been facing the many problems created by fracking so it is good to have those problems brought to the public's attention. From the natural gas ads, one gets the impression that they are the great protectors of the environment!
