The Daniel Adkins case in Phoenix hasn't gotten nearly the attention of the Martin case. A man claimed self defense in the deadly shooting of Adkins, who was unarmed. The gunman was in his vehicle in a drive-through. Adkins was outside the vehicle and didn't touch either the man or his vehicle/property. After the two exchanged words, Adkins waved his arms or became agitated (Adkins was mentally handicapped), and the shooter thought he had a pipe or bat, so he shot him from inside his car. No weapon was found, although Adkins was hanging onto his dog's leash.
Even though the shooter admitted that he did not fear for his life, no arrest has been made in the case. The shooting took place on April 3, 2012.

There is so much to love about the Jersey Shore bunch: the fingernails on the chicks, the sparkly teeshirts on the guys. It all makes me righteous proud to live in dull grey Cleveburg.
If you look at the map titled "Natural gas shales: embedded in this link, part of Ohio's troubles become clear:
Half of our state has gas, the other does not. Hence, legislators in western part of the state couldn't care less about complaints from residents in the eastern part. They have no absolutely incentive to defy the powerful industry lobbyists.
Further to comments made last night at the North Royalton town hall meeting with ODNR officials, here is the email wherein ODNR representative Cristie Wilt responded to my inquiry about the the hydrogen sulfide incident in Guernsey County:
Which came first, The Great American Hypochondriac or the Over Treating Doctor? Sheesh.
This article ran in several papers, including the Cleveland PD on 10/4/09: "The benefits of natural gas: It's plentiful and it's here," by Llewellyn King.
It offers an informed point of view.
