States confirm water contamination from drilling

Monday, 06 January 2014 10:32 Published in National News
PITTSBURGH (AP) - A review by The Associated Press has found that in at least four states that have nurtured the nation's energy boom, hundreds of complaints have been made about well-water contamination from oil or gas drilling.
 
Pollution was confirmed in a number of them, casting doubts on industry suggestions that such problems rarely happen.
 
The AP requested recent data on drilling-related complaints from Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia and Texas and found major differences in how the states report such problems. Texas provided the most detail, while the other states provided general outlines.
 
Pennsylvania received almost 900 complaints in 2012 and 2013 alleging that oil or natural gas drilling polluted or affected private water wells. In recent years Texas recorded 62 complaints, Ohio at least 99 and West Virginia 122.
 
Some of the complaints are still being investigated.

Monday, 06 January 2014 09:43 Published in Local News
TUSCOLA, Ill. (AP) - Southern Illinois' men's basketball team is heading back to campus after spending the night on the floor of a central Illinois church.
 
The Salukis were on their way home to Carbondale after a 66-48 loss at Illinois State when their bus got stuck in snowdrifts on Interstate 57 Sunday evening.
 
A tow truck pulled the bus from the side the road hours later and the two dozen players and staff members spent the night sleeping in a Tuscola church.
 
Tom Weber is the school's assistant athletics director for media services. He says the players started traveling again around 6:30 a.m. after stocking up on food But heavy snow in central Illinois meant the bus was only traveling about 15 mph.
 
He says road conditions are "very, very bad."
