A paragraph in a letter to the editor May 14 from Joann Schiavone about fracking was inadvertently left out:

Republicans and drillers will say it will provide 870,000 jobs by 2015. Ask them to show you the car-fax. Just remember residents what you will transform if you agree to fracking on your property. Gas tankers clog the two-lane roads and drilling rigs dot the horizon. Large water tanks will be needed to help people whose water goes bad. These oil and gas companies will paint a picture for you, and once you sign that lease for them to drill you have put your and your family at risk – making perhaps $81,000 – but now you have a home you can’t sell for $25,000. Do the math. Our Congressman Bob Latta of the 5th Congressional District is for this. Remember this when you vote.
