The idea was approved Monday by a vote of 3-2.
Cecil Township supervisors on Monday voted to hold a private meeting with Southpointe-based Marcellus Shale company Range Resources. The vote was approved by a vote of 3-2. Supervisors Andy Schrader and Mike Debbis cast the dissenting votes. In the discussion leading up to the vote, Supervisor Elizabeth Cowden said she hoped such a meeting would lead to more cooperation instead of litigation. Range Resources and Cecil Township are in court over a Right to Know issue. The company has also joined with MarkWest to appeal a decision regarding a compressor station off Coleman Road. Cowden also cited a Burkes County court case in which a quorum of supervisors met privately on a fact-finding mission without breaking the Sunshine Law. Cowden also …

The Southpointe-based company asked a Washington County Court judge to recuse himself from hearing the case. He responded Monday with an order explaining why he won't.
A Washington County Court of Common Pleas judge has declined to recuse himself in a case between Range Resources and Robinson Township despite a request from the Southpointe-based company to do just that. “The court finds that (Range Resources’) stated reasons for seeking recusal, the involvement of the (Judge John DiSalle’s) spouse with the Peters Township Marcellus Shale Awareness Group in the summer of 2011, has not in any way affected the Court’s ability to hear the case fairly and impartiality, and that such activity does not constitute a circumstance where the court’s impartiality might reasonably be questioned under the Code of Judicial Conduct,” DiSalle wrote in an opinion filed Monday. The opinion also stated: “The Court has …

She went from a size 26 to a size 14—and now she is going to blog about her journey on Canon-McMillan Patch.
It was a perfect Kodak moment. Beautiful outdoor summer wedding. Charming lake. Everybody all gussied up. So Hayley Martin, who works in Southpointe, asked someone to snap a photo of her and daughter Bella. But Martin—who admittedly shares everything on Facebook—couldn’t bring herself to post that picture. “I was horrified by the photo,” she said. She just looked too big. But even that experience didn’t ultimately sway her to get into a weight-loss routine. It was actually a conversation with Bella in the car a short time later that did that. Martin asked the 4-year-old what she wanted to be when she grew up. The answer made her cry—but changed her life. “I want to be just like you—but I don’t want to be fat like you,” Bella told her …

The Southpointe-based company and its spokesman were blasted by a Wallstreet website last week.
Marcellus Shale innovator Range Resources, based in Southpointe, was criticized by a Wall Street investment website last week for taking a "shock-and-awe approach to dealing with anyone who questions the safety of its fracking operations." According to The Motley Fool story titled "Are Corporate Bullies Bad Investments?," Range Resources has "sued or intimidated activists, homeowners, and public officials, sometimes for little more than asking questions." The website sites the company's suit against Robinson Township in Washington County, as well as other incidents. "Range should pick on someone its own size," the website noted. "Naturally, the company calls this characterization unfair." Although it was not mentioned in the story, Cecil …
