Welcome to the Finger Lakes! Our theme song:

In a town this size, there's no place to hide
Everywhere you go, you meet someone you know...
In a smokey bar, in the backseat of your car
In your own little house, someone's sure to find you out
What you do and what you think
What you eat and what you drink...

Town of Ithaca bans fracking

Town residents boarding Cornell's new campus shuttle

Well, that's settled.  WHCU AM reports:
The Town of Ithaca has become the first municipality in Tompkins County to ban hydrofracking for natural gas.

The ban came Monday night as the Town Board unanimously voted in favor of changes in the zoning code clarifying drilling  will never be allowed within the town.
In order to avoid the appearance of hypocrisy, the bedroom suburb's town board also banned smart phones, iPads, radios, televisions, refrigerators, air conditioning, cars, trucks, buses, farm tractors, electric lights, air travel, universities and modern medicine .
