This picture below is the lot next door to my grandmother's place.It was 1950 and I was an infant at the time.
The picture below that, of Jamie sitting on the red truck, shows the same area 23-24 years later.It was a grown in pasture area & my uncle made a 'race track' around it where he could exercise his horse Tangerine & later Robbie.
The houses affected in the newspaper clipping were Michael Vermeda & family (white house) and the dark colored house the Lutackas'.
It makes you think twice (and then some) of those companies having 'mining rights' ! Keep this in mind with the gas leases! Fortunately environmental laws have come a long way since 1950!
