MDN Weekly Update – Aug 21, 2011: MDN on Vacation until Labor Day

Happy Labor DayTo the relief of those who oppose drilling, and the dismay of those who support it, MDN will take a vacation break for the next two weeks, starting August 22nd. We will not publish daily articles during that time. We will resume publishing on Tuesday, September 6th.

The current poll will be left open during that time, so if you haven’t yet voted, please be sure to do so. The poll asks, Who should regulate hydraulic fracturing? Register your vote along the right side of any page on the site.

Below are the most recent “top 5” lists and the calendar of Marcellus related events through September 10th.

Happy Labor Day!
