How to Use this Blog

For those who have not used an open email blog before, it is very easy. Everyone who is interested in the discussion will get emails like this one. To add to the discussion, just reply to the email. That email will go out to everyone also. To review the ongoing discussion, just go to the "blog" website (in this case to review the emails. This discussion method allows people to join at any point without derailing the group with redundant questions. Occassionally, I will edit out redundant or unnecessary comments to make the website more readable.

This method will come in handy as we move forward. For example, an email with a long list of good questions about drilling was circulated a couple of days ago. Those questions are a good starting point for our discussion with the city. As we get answers to those quetsions, we can put the answers in an FAQ sheet so everyone knows what's going on.

If you would like to test the discussion blog, just reply to this email. Then go to with your Explorer or Firefox browser. Your comment will show up on the site shortly. If you want to try it out by sending "test" emails, be my guest. I'll delete them from the blog later. Even if you don't intend on using the blog, you should try it just for fun.

If you know people who would like to be emailed when new comments about the drilling are added, they can enroll in blogger and subscribe, or they can simply send me an email. I'll add them to my special list.
