Next week: SPLIT ESTATE comes to Gaines, PA.
Wednesday, May 19 @ 7pm there will be a community showing of the riveting documentary SPLIT ESTATE.. The event will take place at the Pine Creek Methodist Church in Gaines, PA. The church is located on the north side of US route 6 between Gaines and Galeton, PA, just east of the Potter/Tioga county line.
Governor of New Mexico and former presidential candidate Bill Richardson had this to say about the documentary: “’Split Estate’ is an eye-opening examination of the consequences and conflicts that can arise between surface land owners in the western United States, and those who own and extract the energy and mineral rights below. This film is of value to anyone wrestling with rational, sustainable energy policy while preserving the priceless elements of cultural heritage, private enterprise above-ground, and the precious health not only of people but the land itself.”
