Announcing a new informational web site: Beartooth Front: Get Involved

As we move toward local action on the expansion of oil drilling in Carbon and Stillwater Counties, it will be critical for local residents to:

  • Get educated
  • Talk to their neighbors
  • Contact local government officials
  • Get involved

There is so much information available today about oil and gas drilling and its impact on communities. Much of it is strongly partisan for or against drilling, much of it is published one day and gone the next.

To assist Carbon and Stillwater County residents as they move along the path of local action, we’ve created a new site: Beartooth Front: Get Involved. The site is still in its infancy. We encourage you to go on over and check it out.

Please suggest content. Just list a URL and a reason why you think it is valuable. Our goal is to include fact-based content from all sources. We will not post partisan opinion pieces.

Action item: You can sign up to receive updates when the content is updated. You’ll get these updates irregularly, but if this is a topic you are interested in you’ll find lots of great information over time. To sign up, look on the column of information on the right side of the page. There’s a search bar on the top, and then beneath it is a “Follow” button. Just click on it and follow the instructions. We promise not to overburden you with updates.

You can also bookmark the site and visit as time allows.

What you’re seeing today is just a start. There’s much more to come as we work to preserve the Beartooth Front.

Below you can see the current state of the well in Belfry. The purpose of the new site is to empower local residents to set the terms by which drilling expands along the Beartooth Front. It is not a partisan site, but one designed to give local residents the information they need to make their own decisions about how to get involved. The goal is a solution that preserves our way of life by being fair economically and respectful of personal rights.

About davidjkatz

The Moses family has lived on the Stillwater River since 1974, when George and Lucile Moses retired and moved to the Beehive from the Twin Cities. They’re gone now, but their four daughters (pictured at left, on the Beehive) and their families continue to spend time there, and have grown to love the area. This blog started as an email chain to keep the family informed about the threat of increased fracking activity in the area, but the desire to inform and get involved led to the creation of this blog.
