Just want you to know Ira, the reason I go to RadioShack is because I know next to nothing about electronics but your employees do. They, with their knowledge have saved me many times all without making me look like an idiot. So a BIG thank you to your employees. I will also take the time to give a shout out to the Athol store as they too have bailed me out more than once. Very Happy you will not be closing. ...(full comment)
Great to see such attitudes and mobilization; do all you can to stop this; intervene and get the word out; 30 inch pipelines should be in no one's backyard ; and look at all the leaks and explosions of gas pipelines across our country; I live in the Shale Gasfields and do not want this gas to be exported and then more drilling and extraction will be encouraged when we need to get off fossil fuels and move onto renewables; This exporting further lengthens our dependence on fossil fuels which pollute our air and water and land. I have hundreds of videos showing the industrialization of our Susquehanna County, a rural, agricultural county: www.youtube.com/user/veraduerga
I am now embroiled in a lawsuit from Cabot Oil and Gas, who want to restrict my movement and access in my county so I can't get near their industrial sights and continue to document and expose their expanding, toxic footprint. Cabot has 540 DEP Violations in our county alone since 2008 and still allowed to operate. We have hundreds of miles of pipelines and they are allowed to cross wetlands, waterways and with no restrictions ! ...(full comment)
As the owners of the RadioShack stores in Greenfield and Brattleboro, we want to assure the public that our business is solid and we will remain open. We began as RadioShack franchisees in Brattleboro in 1986, acquired the Greenfield location in 2000 and have been going strong ever since!
We wish to thank our tens of thousands of loyal customers who, for generations, have opted to buy local. The combination of an iconic national brand and the values of a local, family-owned business are an unbeatable force that helps to keep us and our communities strong. We are proud of our association with RadioShack and will continue to work hard to deliver the personal attention and value you expect. We know you have many buying choices and greatly appreciate your business.

I agree that fossil fuels have their place, but am concerned about the whole "co-location" issue and its effect on the full length of this pipeline. We don't know much about this, but common sense would dictate that a high volume, commercial gas pipeline pumping thousands of cubic feet of gas running a minimum distance of 50' along high voltage electrical grids is dangerous, and our laws and statues regarding safety could never have anticipated this.
More concerning is that there are electro-magnetic fields around these electrical lines that can behave in unpredictable ways, influenced by solar activity, seismic movement, terrain, atmospheric conditions- from what I've read.
It seems that pipelines themselves can be influenced by proximity to electricity, as well as the gas(es) they carry.
It's concerning that this company is seeking to locate along these grids, because this will spread accountability among two legal entities when there are problems and this seems like a huge cost savings for the pipeline, but a very volatile situation for citizens all over Massachusetts.
Co-location isn't mentioned on any of their customer websites.
We spend more on our military than the next 14 countries in the world COMBINED. And Cheney should chew out the Republicans before the President -- the Senate Republicans overwhelmingly voted against a bill extending veterans' benefits. ...(full comment)
