GIF of crab eating strawberry incites 2020 challenge to save US

December 26, 2019

crab eating strawberry2_LIThis is so sad to watch as humans prioritize ourselves in the food chain at the top. Especially in relationship to climate change, we are already starting to see the poor be the first to hurt in ocean rise, flooding etc. Think of how the rich afford bunkers in the event of some catastrophic event. We now realize that the elite have already rigged the system in giving corporations a voice that is in detriment to our environment. The health of corporations have a priority status over humans in a sick game called capitalism. Even more absurd is how we spend our “time making money” and our “money buying products”, some that make us sick (example: obesity, heart disease, diabetes, COPD, zantac, fossil fuels, cell phones alcohol,…etc.) Over-consumerism is a zero-sum game to the environment as manufacturing unnecessary trinkets recklessly risk our limited resources and are destroying the delicate balance of our environment to support life (clean air, water, soil, carbon sinks). The elite rich have been buying our government lobbying for votes. With our silence, and our inaction to assemble and protest, we only have our collective selves to blame. Unless we act to change the status quo by destroying the rigged system, we are part of the problem and complacent to a food chain that will be our own demise in over consuming at the expense of a livable planet for humans, plants, animals, and sea life. #BeLikeGreta

Welcome White Rhino Coffee to Downtown Arlington TX

Please forward this email to Chris Parvin.
Chris, my name is Kim Feil. I volunteered as manager of the shop and activities next door to the Worthington Bank when there was a Pura Vida coffee shop called Local Color. This particular location was an offshoot of the South Side on Lamar (apartments) as a secondary location for community outreach as a coffee shop. The initial location in Dallas served in a ministerial capacity as an unconventional Lutheran church on the roof by Mark Tobias Joeckel who now manages the Arlington Music Hall.
Local Color was run by volunteers, and the coffee was by donation. We had monthly art shows, open mic, and a few store front street events in Downtown Arlington from 2003 to 2006. 
Afrer following Local Color to two other locations (Cooper Coffee) and then at the UTA Student Lutheran Center (where I painted a second site Local Color mural), I busked at the Arlington Farmers Market at 205 East Front Street which is now the home of what I call, Petsche Music Hall. I named it that because they have yet to name the building (although some people refer to it as the Black Box) across from Tipsy Oak.
I am affiliated with Pulse Dallas brainstormer and financiere, Attorney David L. Wiley. I have been attempting to get a similar program started in Arlington where the musicians are paid and strategically placed in areas with foot traffic in sidewalk performances.
I currently volunteer coordinate an open mic at Truth Vinyl records downtown across from Hooligans at 300 East Abram and invite you to come check out this really cool record store and meet the owners, Ric Delzell and Carol Anderson, who have graciously equipped their store with a stage, PA, and lighting system. Their community outreach provides a venue for free weekend shows and our weekly open mic on Thursday nights from 5 to 8 p.m.
I lead a busking group from the connections I’ve made through the open mic of all the talented musicians. Arlington Buskers is grounded with Arlington Nights, a musicians’ networking group, who meets monthly. Part of my role is to find new venues for our musicians.
We are extremely excited to hear about the transformation of the Worthington Bank to a new location for White Rhino Coffee! 
I am offering any assistance with booking musicians who appreciate new places to perform and hope you are open to offering your venue and street front as available to our local musicians.
Welcome to Arlington White Rhino Coffee!

FANatic Coverage of Phasing Out song by Motel Radio

October 16, 2019

We drove from Dallas TX to New Orleans and had access to Motel Radio’s home/practice studio on October 10th, 2019 After I parked my car just off of Dante St,……

and as I walked up to their door, I turned on my cell phone video and BAM …now YOU can watch the LIVE practice video of this song here,!

Shortly after recording this, they loaded in and headed to the Fillmore on Canal St.

Here is the link to their first music video of this song!!

This Phasing Out song is on their $7 CD you can buy HERE,

I’ve always called this the Bubblegum song, but as their biggest fan I can rename the song can’t I?

Lyrics found here

Always walking with a lonely dove
I choose to want you badly and
Baby I’ll be leaning all the ways that you do
Till I get my doubts

Thought I wanted us to pick up and get on with moving
But I keep on crawling
To the bottom of the ocean where we started
It’s a miracle that

I don’t mind if I can’t fight a feeling that I get
And I don’t mind if I can’t hide a feeling that I get

With you, that I get with you

Phasing out it isn’t easy to be honest
Cause I like your point of view
Now I’m wishing I could sit right down beside you
Maybe we could talk it through

I don’t mind if I can’t fight a feeling that I get
And I don’t mind if I can’t hide a feeling that I get

With you, that I get with you

Badadaa badadat badadaadaadaadadaa
Badadaa badadat badadaadaadaadadaa

I don’t mind if i can’t fight a feeling that I get
And I don’t mind if I can’t hide a feeling that I get

With you, that I get with you

Winston now lives in New Orleans and was in a band while he was at LSU (and they opened for Weezer). Now he regularly tours with Motel Radio,
Here is my home video from last week at the Fillmore to get a feel of their feel good music,
And yes I am their biggest fan,
Let know if you are interested in booking them for 2020 or at least have them be a back up show if something falls through. If they are not booked, I’d like to think they could make the trip with a couple/few days notice.
I copied Alan in the event he wants to have them perform the next time they tour at his 215 E Front St performance hall.  I just wish we could twist Alan to allow US Arlington folks to appropriately name it Petsche Hall; that way the name allows for name recognition (as justly deserved for all his contributions to the arts here in Arlington).

KimFeilGood Guitar Performance Classes

June 20, 2019

I teach incorporating strumming rhythms to simulate drum percussion, & to simulate bass during guitar playing so as to not fall into the trap of boring strumming. I teach stage attitude presence/confidence and dance movement to and from mic. I also teach transposing music to find where to be singing in your natural voice as well as how to arrange your set list and tunings to vary your sound between songs to not create burn out for the listeners. Teaching songwriting can also be covered in a 2 hr/week session for $70 for the first session, then $60 for the next, then $50, then $40, then $30 for the last four of our eight week session with no commitment or advance payments required. If a school student cannot devote 2 hrs, we can do 1 hour sessions by halving the above fees and going for a longer term 16 week goal in learning what I have to offer over my 50 years as a female in a male dominated music world. My edge in syncopating the rhythms began in being a tamborine percussionist first. After learning guitar chords, I was bored with the traditionally taught basic 1ah, 2ah, 3ah, 4 strumming patterns. I teach how to NOT be a boring guitarist, basically. I coordinate the open mic at Truth Vinyl records and hope to have my students be utilizing the stage to refine their skills. Happy learning and have fun performing! Call or text me 817 564-2577.

How to NOT be a boring guitarist….nuff said!

Everything I know about FixN cats in Arlington

May 31, 2019

UPDATE 8/15/19

Don’t want your pets ear tipped when they are spayed or neutered?

The Ft Worth Humane Society has vouchers for FREE pet spay/neuter that includes microchip and pain meds for those living in the targeted ZIP codes.

If you live outside of the targeted zip codes like in Arlington, to get the free voucher, you must show proof of being on gov. subsidies and accompany that document with this application….

However if you are not in their targeted zip code but able to show proof of poverty, they have an application and you can get those blessed vouchers and then make your appointment at the groups that take the vouchers.

If you cannot prove poverty income document, Arlington has the Select Sundays free spay neuter program, but be sure to specify if you want the ear not tipped (read below). The other option is to make an appointment with TCAP and pay $45 for the female feline and $35 for the male kitten/cat .

The lower cost option mentioned below is to pay $5 a cat at TCAP in Hurst if you can be the first 12 in line in a feral cage BUT they will get a mandatory eartip.

The Arlington Animal Shelter has FREE 2 week RENTALS of the TNR traps if you say you need the trap for feline TNR. Otherwise the traps for other wildlife has a backlog list and a $50 I think deposit requirement.

UPDATE 6/19/19

Thanks for TNR donation Tree Hugger Tree Service in Arlington TX

Father’s Day Storm of 2019! This is the cat I fixed weeks ago who unknowingly was pregnant and cost extra to be able to continue to use the Hurst TCAP services cuz Arlington has such a failed one. Thank you Christie Elliott of Tree Hugger Tree Service for your donation to this worthy cause to keep our neighborhood from exploding with kittens.

Arlington’s TNR program 9 times inferior to Hurst TCAP which ave 720 cats fixed over 3 month period vs our 80 cat fixes. BUT at a subsequent meeting I learned I am not comparing apples to apples in services the shelter provides verses what TCAP does. listen here,

Originally I met to find out why their actual intake numbers were lower than what they quote and thus the meeting to understand also the protocol for euthanasia.

When I took some kittens to the Arlington Animal Shelter, they asked if they were feral and I said yes, then they said they were full and they could not even guarantee that they could make it to the trap-neuter-release program and pointed to the “maybe killed after 3 days” signage. I wept and took them home and to the vet. Now that the kittens I am fostering are socialized, dewormed, etc, I’m still afraid to bring them back there for fear they may not make it to the adoption floor because they’re full. Does anybody have experience with tracking an animal they brought to the shelter to see if it made it to the adoption floor? For the adult cats in my neighborhood, I TNR them myself at the TCAP Hurst to make sure they aren’t killed and to make sure they reclaim their territory as a fixed feral hunting mice. But for kittens, this is a new avenue for me fostering them …and getting stuck… with the good work that I’m doing, my husband is about ready to divorce me! Help me please find homes for these kittens before I turn them into the shelter. First I want to understand the shelter’s track record on what animals are killed and which ones make it to the adoption floor. I am told once the SOCIALIZED kittens make it through the health exam, they get their shots excetera then go to the adoption floor. Please let me know what the odds are as I gamble with their life. UPDATE here is the City’s response to my inquisition…”Good Morning, Thank you for contacting Arlington Animal Services. Unfortunately, we are open intake, which means we can not turn any animals away that are from Arlington whether they be strays or owner surrendered and we must always have the space. If a pet is brought in as a stray, they do not have tags, a microchip, or are visibly spayed/neutered, they are placed on a 3 day stray hold. Once the hold on any animal ends, they can possibly be placed up for adoptions, sent out with a rescue group (adoption placement partner must tag them), or humanely euthanized. We can’t guarantee the outcome of an animal. Depending on the temperament of the animal(s), the health, as well as space, they could possibly be TNR’d, however it is not a guarantee. When you bring an animal(s) into the shelter, they do require a copy of your ID/License, and you fill out the stray release form. The animal will be linked to your name and we can later pull them up using your name, phone number, or address, and you can also check the website for the 8-digit animal ID number. If the kittens qualify for the TNR program, you can have them altered at the TCAP as well as an upcoming Feral Cat Clinic we have coming up here at the shelter Sunday August 25, 2019. I will attach the link to our website that will have all of that information on there for you. We also do not hold animals for years, as we are open intake and have to have the space, we do however make euthanasia a last resort”.

And I responded back with some basic math about their intake numbers not matching up with their last fiscal year actuals….

I wrote a letter back to the City…. —– Forwarded Message —– From: kim feil <> To: animalservices <> Sent: Friday, July 26, 2019, 02:16:16 PM CDT Subject: Re: [EXTERNAL EMAIL]Q on processing an animal turned over to the shelter for the adoption program After doing an kill rate/by reason open records request, Diane called me to get clarification and to walk me through the info already on the City website. I want to verify that ……… This link is for last fiscal year stats…. You say you take in about 25-75 animals a day. The ave 2017/2018 fiscal year for cats rate was about 48%, so if you took in 12-36 cats/day, 6 days a week, then that would be (365 day/yr minus 52 Sundays closed) 313 day/yr intake of a range of 3756 – 11,268 cats intake a year. BUT the link above shows cat intake for the year as 3400, so are you exaggerating how many animals come in? With 3400 cat intake/yr and ONLY 1 healthy cat euthanized, and the rest ave 25% (905 cats) put down for being sick (includes the 24 lost in shelter), then that is a positive track record. The rest (2582 cats) ave 75% lived and is as follows in my crunching and smoothing out the average to rounding….689 (20%) were adopted out, 1,727 (50%) sent to cat groups with proof of sterilization required or they get a $2K fine), the remaining 5% were reunited with their owners. I’d say that is great work and thank you to the cat groups of which there is about 100 groups of caring people finding cats homes! Did I get this in the ball park? If so why do you say 25-75 animals a day intake when the low end of a 313 day/yr intake is 3756 and your last fiscal year was only ACTUAL 3400? On the low end you are overstating the cat intake by about 356 cats. On the high end you overstate by 7,868. Surely I am missing something? I used to be an analyst for a hospital supply company and enjoy number crunching…and this is way off. Please advise. Sincerely, Kim Feil

Multiply 12 cat limit a day – five days a week at the Hurst TCAP TNR ($5 each) = 60 cats a week clinic times 4 weeks in a month is 240 cats/mth over a three month period yields 720 cats fixed verses Arlington’s failed Select Sunday program program accepting 12-20 plus cats per event over a three month period (June 9, June 30th, July 28th and August 25th) ranges only 48-80 plus cats fixed over a three month period. Arlington’s Select Sunday program fixes 9 times LESS cats than the Hurst TCAP program…what do you have to say about that?
Why can’t you support the needs of Arlington residents to have a convenient program open 5 days a week?Use some of your fracking money when its paid back from the loan for Texas live will ya?

The City other experts agree that returning a FIXED cat to its original territory keeps other unfixed cats from taking over their terrority.

I have spoken live to two City of Arlington representatives with the Animal Shelter. They said they receive 10K pets a yr and have a staff of less than 30 people). They take in 25-75 animals a day that people bring in or they can go out and set traps as requested and when staff is available. Once at the shelter If they show signs of an owner being able to be contacted, they get to live past day 3-7. Some can be TNR and released back out, some go up for adoption, ferals maybe not so lucky-they use a vaccine to “humanely?” euthanize them.

The only no kill shelter is in Carrollton. Someone told me they can shut their doors if they don’t have room.

HERE IS THE CURRENT PROGRAM THE CITY OF ARLINGTON IS ADMINISTERING, (there is a vet who likes to work on a SUNDAY)….follow their Facebook page to learn about more future spay/neuter clinics, Here is the link to the flyer for this info below,

Who: All Arlington Zip codes residents only

What: FREE feral fix clinics on select Sundays (thanks to Maddie Grant)

When: June 9, June 30th, July 28th,& August 25th 2019

Where: Arlington Animal Services Center, 1000 SE Green Oaks Blvd., 76018. Cat drop-off 8-9 a.m., Return for pickup 4 p.m.

How: The FIRST 20 CATS to arrive between 8 – 9 a.m. Only the first 20 Arlington feral/community cats will be accepted. Kittens must be at least three (3) months old. **Ferals must be in a trap. For more information, please call 817-459-6190.

Why: Your neighborhood needs managing I was told there will be no additional back end charge regardless of their pregnancy, or in heat, condition if any. BUT you have to set the traps out the night before and be successful in the hunt, be sure not to feed them breakfast…if you can’t catch the feral, you have to wait til the next free Sunday clinic.

ABOUT THE CAGES, there is NO CHARGE for the cage rental and they are available IF you specify the purpose for the trap is for a feral cat. Otherwise for other live animals-possums etc., there is a $50 rental deposit and a waiting list. This is bewildering to have conditional availability for cages based on the animal and purpose. ???

I wish there was a consistent program, as the City of Arlington has neuter/spay programs that change over time/funding. How about use the fracking gas drilling money Arlington Tomorrow Foundation blood money on a consistent,TNR program instead of spending ATF funds on stuff like that $100K for signage on cemeteries!

Aside from the Arlington Animal Shelter…… There is TCAP (who comes to Arlington three times a month at $25 a cat), they accept the first dozen feral cats in line in a trap. The Hurst TCAP also accepts first dozen in a trap Mon-Fri for only $5. BUT BEWARE if pregnant TCAP will charge you between $20-$40 additionally. If you refuse payment, they ban you from their services until your bill is paid.

There is also the Spay Neuter Network, the SPCA, and the Humane Society. Drive over to Ft Worth to pick up the free vouchers from the Humane Society for indoor pets if you cannot afford to spay them.

Your staff member on May 31st told me over the phone that you average 12 cats on those select Sundays.

Aside from your Maddie select Sunday program I also understand that TCAP comes three times a month for $25 a cat at your Arlington Animal Shelter and they only accept the first dozen feral cats in a trap. 
Here is more info I share with Nextdoor and FB groups that seems to be info worthy, but if you find any errors let me know…for now I am keeping the 12 average on your select Sunday info cause that is what your employee told me.

Hello Ms. Feil,

The information you sent out this morning is not correct and we wanted to take the time to address your concerns.  Texas Coalition for Animal Protection (TCAP) is the recipient of a grant allowing individuals and/or shelters to receive TNR services by bringing feral cats to any TCAP location.  The 12 spots (and sometimes more, depending on TCAP staffing) allows feral cats to be taken to Hurst, Fort Worth, Burleson, Allen, or Weatherford, Texas for sterilization services.  

Arlington Animal Services continues to provide “free TNR” services made possible by grant funding from Maddie’s Fund for Arlington residents.  We currently have Feral Cat Sunday TNR services scheduled for June 30, July 28, and August 25.  The Feral Cat Sundays have been extremely successful, allowing Arlington residents to bring cats to these events for sterilization.   In most cases, these clinics have accepted over our 20 cat limit (depending on staffing) in an effort to assist those residents who have put forth their time to trap and bring the cats in to be sterilized, ear-tipped, and rabies vaccinated. 

Please contact me directly with any additional questions or concerns.

Recent evictions on Elm and East street have left animals stranded.
I took a cat on Monday that I wanted to catch for your free “Select” Sunday program that was on, June 9th, but when you keep catching possums, that ties up your trap (I am borrowing my neighbors trap. I bought my own once, but it was a piece of junk and a waste of $40.
So I arrived on Monday to find the first 12 allowed for $5 a piece was filled up. I returned to TCAP Hurst the next day to find other people people being turned away after those 12 spots were filled.
Arlington is putting a strain on the Hurst TCAP services for its residents and Arlington needs to match their program or at least send help finance the Arlington citizens….see suggestion below.
I will try again to take advantage of your next Select Sunday program for free TNR (including unknown pregnancy termination), but if I trap a cat on say a Friday, then it has to stay caged and cared for before and after the surgery and refilling the cat dishes is a risk to getting bit not to mention an unnecessary strain on the feral.

I tried starting Friday trapping a cat so I can make your free select Sunday TNR program but you can’t be so lucky to time it just right.I understand you guys are not getting anywhere near the 20 limit.
The city should set up an account that takes the difference between the cats received than the 20 allowed and and let that unused a lot of cash sit in an account at the Hurst location. I have taken my TNRs there over the years at $5 a pop unless they are pregnant. When they are unknowingly pregnant, it’s $20 to $40 extra. When Arlington residents have the convenience of the Hurst location and find a pregnancy termination bill sitting in their lap. This kitty abortion is costly and a deterrent to trap ARLINGTON cats.
Since Sheri has yet to respond, I thought I’d also send this to Helen, thank you Helen for any response you can give on how we can improve Arlingtons TNR program, thanks.

Hi, Kim. I appreciate your email.
Unfortunately, we are unable to remove the $20 that is owed from your account.  You had a $20 credit on your account prior to visiting us yesterday. All that is due is $20 at this time. This amount will need to be paid before we are able to service additional pets for you.
I’m unsure if you are aware, but TCAP’s free feral program is not underwritten by a grant of any kind. That program is funded wholly by our general operating account and by donations from generous people who value the service we provide. However, these services have a cost to us to provide. A basic cat spay at TCAP costs us, on average, $72. This is a service we provide for free. We promo out all in heat cats-of which there are many and these cats cost us more to service due to surgeon and staff time and additional suture required. We simply charge additional fees for pregnant and crypt orchid animals. There is no deviation from this.
We are very upfront about any additional fees that may be owed after the surgery itself is provided for free to you. The details of our feral program are indicated here:
We appreciate your partnership and your hard work for your community through fixing ferals.

And here is my guest segment as second place winner…..

Here are the pics and videos from my guest experience vantage point on the Alley Rally show on 5/8/19 at the Arlington Downs building in suite 427 on the fourth floor at 2225 East Randol Mill Rd in Arlington Texas…..

Notice the omonimous Arlington skyview as when we entered the building there was a unusual wind gust event following a storm that just passed us.
Since my husband was rained out of work that day, Ken Feil, was able to join us!
This is when Noodles tried to interject, but forgot what he was going to say…

Subject: I would like to assist with summer camp

Nina, it was nice chatting with you over the phone. Again, my name is Kim Triolo Feil, aka KimFeilGood, once I heard about the camp, I envisioned camping out on the steps to figure out how to show my interest in being one of the teachers in the camp wherever I am needed, and once the City posted the application, I found your contact info! Here is a list of how I may be helpful or be a back up as I can:

1) teach guitar and have played for almost a half a century!

2) teach transposing to different keys, here is a before & after clip of my work to help a singer out,

3) teach songwriting, I recently won second place in a singer songwriter Cokers BBQ contest,

4) Can do a seminar on safety & compliance in busking/street impromptu performances. I am one of the founding members of Arlington NightS and am the busking/street musician lead and contribute to a FB group called Arlington Buskers, and keep blogging City related notes on the subject relevant to Arlington,

I also currently represent the Busking community through Pulse Dallas (performed yesterday and will perform each Monday this month) where we are paid to have a live music presence downtown during lunches, here is my debut Christian video from last September where I have about 1,200 views!

5) or I can teach stomp for those who need to move around a bit to get the energy out, I have written a couple of Christian hip hop tunes that I incorporate stomp steps to.

I have been in Christian bands over my 56 years of being (young & vibrant) starting in 3rd grade that cover Catholics, Lutherans, and Baptists.
I live close to the Downtown area and am active in my community as I ran for City Council about 7 years ago, I also manage the Arlington Texas Talk UNcensored FB page with over 1,400 members engaging in the betterment of Arlington through real, but respectful, discussions not so sugarcoated,

How to Repurpose Schools to Fund Themselves=Property Tax Relief

April 11, 2019

HB2 is indeed stirring the pot in Texas. Bill language reads that we have and “over reliance on local property taxes to fund public schools.”

SCHOOL REFORM IS NEEDED DUE TO Property tax increases that are beginning to equate to pricing us out of our dwellings in paying taxes to educate the masses. The internet effectively handles the masses. We have an internet and e-learning is superior in most cases in:

1) being self paced


3) best lesson plans to choose from

4) ability to vet/organize neighborhood small group learning/designated houses where the children are too young to be self supervised and both parents work.

Our governance could selectively and effectively finance laptop and internet connections for students IN THEIR HOMES. We should only have to finance the staff support needed for laptop repairs. We could lose the traditional classrooms in schools and repurpose them to make them affordable dorm-like apartments where the cafeteria is self sustaining for healthy food choices for the residents and some on-campus students. We could even give first preference to support staff to rent these repurposed classrooms to those that are single, or just out of college and single, that want to live on campus where they work.

It could be a win/win because we could still use the quarantined off areas for the fine arts, sports and special needs students, as Christian Kelly pointed out that “There are many Teachers that work with non Traditional Students such as ESL Students and even more Teachers that work under the IDEA umbrella in providing Special Education Services. Public Schools will always be there to meet compliance with Federal law regarding FAPE”.

Some teachers will get impacted and will have to reinvent their usefulness as online or in person tutors funded by the parents or grants. In being a substitute teacher, I saw first hand how our teaching jobs are really just glorified babysitting ones. I don’t want to lose my home paying taxes to babysit someone elses kids. Do I sound too Republican?

Tarrant Chronicle info on Kim Triolo Feil as Fractivist

February 18, 2019

The Tarrant Chronicle posted my top ten urban drilling wish list to fix loopholes in public safety,

Future publications:

  • My name is Kim Triolo Feil, better known in Arlington Texas as an anti urban gas drilling activist. It is worth noting that my environmental activism did not start even after three major chemical exposure events while living in Louisiana near refinery row better known as cancer alley.
    I worked for eight years between the Shell Oil & Shell Chemical plants as a bank teller in Norco Louisiana in my early twenties. On two occasions I was in a lockdown situation at the American Bank on Apple street. Both times we breached the lock down to let helpless people find refuge in the bank lobby from the white chemical clouds enveloped the area. In 1988, I was trapped in my car less than hundred feet away from the ground rumbling, burning storage tanks releasing 159 million pounds of volatile chemical waste into the air in the infamous Shell Oil explosion event. The glass on my car window was too hot to the touch. My boyfriend and I was trying to evacuate an elderly person we knew lived across the street from ground zero. I received $200 for the paint peeling off my car and signed a non-disclosure agreement. I now wonder in retrospect how many decades it might take for my refinery exposure events to translate into some type of latent cancer.
    I spent my childhood in Independence Louisiana, fifty miles north of Norco in a small, Sicilian immigrant town of strawberry farmers. It was only in the last ten years of research into fracking that I was able to note the importance of how my best friend, Julie’s, dad stored the nasty smelling strawberry insecticide near their back door. I also recall how my grandparents did not let me play in their shed as they were strawberry farmers too. I remember them telling me never to go in there as that is where they stored their chemicals for the farm. Julie died of leukemia later when we were in high school. Last month forty years later, Julie’s only other sibling sister, likewise died of cancer. As a fractivist, I now suspiciously ask, what are the odds that both of the children raised near those farming chemicals never survived to see their golden years?
    When I moved to Arlington in my late twenties, I worked in eye shot of the GM plant for a hospital supply company on Great Southwest Parkway. Seeing the massive GM plant in Arlington as the lone industrial presence on the backdrop of Six Flags was a relief to my senses in comparison to the offensive odors of the refinery towns in Louisiana.
    As President of our Old Town Neighborhood Association in Arlington, I attended a neighborhood summit where then Mayor Cluck had an exuberant announcement of how Arlington was sitting on the sweet spot. He spoke of how we were in for a windfall of cash in extracting natural gas under the land we owned. After believing the snake oil land man explaining how the new horizontal drilling means they will not be close to us, and how low profile the well head was in being similar to a fire hydrant, I began rallying my neighbors. We had a mineral lease signing party. We were so relieved that we signed when we did as the signing price dropped in later years for subsequent signing party hold outs.
    Life came to a halt as I knew it soon after I became alarmed at how intrusive urban drilling is once I saw the flaring and smelled the familiar noxious odor when I drove by the GM plant who had also leased to Chesapeake Energy to drill for natural gas. I felt like the refinery town in Norco followed me to Arlington. As a cautious parent, I began following closely the blog of Texas Sharon. 
    In disbelief that I moved to yet another industrialized town, I started doing my own research and sent letters to the Arlington City Council cautioning them and sharing my findings of what I call “loopholes in public protections”. My blog,, is mostly a cut and paste of these letters. I do post any rare responses over the years from our mostly silent mayor and council and invite you to search the website to learn how our drinking water has changed since urban drilling.
    Shockingly, in July of 2010, we had a drilling operator work-over” spill in Lake Arlington, our drinking water source, due to human error in not closing a valve all the way. We also have about one hundred drilling laterals under our lake that are at migration risk for seismic events and or cement failures. The future is bleak as the wells are starting to age and the operators are starting to change hands. For example Carrizo sold to Enervest who sold to Saddle Operating company, and Chesapeake has sold to Total.

    Over the years I get emails and calls from people sickened or alarmed about sounds, odors, and alleged cancer clusters in Arlington. In 2011, a fractivist friend, Jane, of mine had a nearby gas well spewing after a storm and raw gas entered her home which sickened her and her dog. It was one of two rouge gas wells spewing simultaneously across town when the electric compressor station lost power and backed up pressure into two different pad sites.
    In 2012, I unsuccessfully even ran for City Council. In 2013, I joined Jane in the ranks of having her home invaded as my mother-in-law and I endured a corrosive odor in my home while the Truman Cowboy Stadium Chesapeake pad site released noxious odors during their work over/drilling-out-the-plug stages. I interviewed and documented people sickened in the area. I noted how the media never covered the story even though five fire trucks and one ambulance was dispatched. I attempted to sue Chesapeake in small claims court representing myself against three high powered Kelly Hart & Hallman attorneys. During the discovery phase of the trial, I was able to obtain emails of documents proving Chesapeake lied to city and state officials about the source and location of the odor. The outcome was to have a retired judge (Judge Curnutt recused herself) throw out the case because I did not have a doctor nor an engineer’s report saying this happened proving the nuisance.
    Less than a decade later amid the frenzy of urban drilling here in the north Texas Barnett Shale, the citizens of Denton by referendum banned fracking. In response at the next legislative session, a statewide Texas “HB40 ban-against-fracking-bans” was passed on 4/17/2015. This was just days after a horrible gas well spill event happened near Lake Arlington in a densely crowded neighborhood.
    We have had over a dozen gas release emission events that the general public knows about. On September 10th 2018, Arlington Fire Department’s Sergeant Crowsen said at a Frown Hall meeting (due to a fracking accident) that they respond to about 10-15 gas well complaints a year. Per our 2019 budget on page 120, it will cost us almost $500,000 in 2019 for gas well emergency response readiness.
    I am glad that at our last midterm election that we were able to pass term limits. It is my hope that one day we will have a full council and mayoral seat of fractivists like myself trying to protect the citizen’s health in NOT rubber stamping expansions to our existing sixty or so pad sites in Arlington GASLAND TX.
    I only update my blog,, on topics that I have already reported on, but I am still actively speaking against every agenda item related to drilling in Arlington.
    Thwarting my efforts in fixing the loopholes is that our local and state government does not enforce these two laws that are on already on the books….
    TEX LG. CODE ANN. A§ 253.005 : Texas Statutes – Section 253.005:
    (c) A well may not be drilled in the thickly settled part of the municipality…”
    Texas Administrative Code, Title 30, Part 1, Chapter 101, Subchapter A,Rule 101.4,
    Environmental Quality, Nuisance
    No person shall discharge from any source whatsoever one or more air contaminants or combinations thereof, in such concentration and of such duration as are or may tend to be injurious to or to adversely affect human health or welfare, animal life, vegetation, or property, or as to interfere with the normal use and enjoyment of animal life, vegetation, or property”.
    And now with HB40 in place, council will hide behind this bill that essentially does not want any City ordinance changes to cost the drillers money as they have this “commercially reasonable” language that needs to be challenged in the courts. Since our mayor and council have defended themselves twice in the term limits fight, they should place a safer setback distance of 1,000 feet, go to court, and use as their main argument c) A well may not be drilled in the thickly settled part of the municipality…”. At the very least, they should not allow exceptions to develop existing pad sites that intrude on the 600 ft set back already existing in our ordinance. Currently, Arlington officials are only entertaining having to have a supermajority vote to be closer than 600 feet. The next time we can speak on the agenda item to tighten our gas drilling ordinance is quickly approaching. It may be a couple more years before they revisit our ordinance, or until the next highly publicized emission event.
