CAPS files suit in waste site case

Nestled along State Highway 72, the tiny community of Nordheim - - population 316 -- is billed as “the small town with a big heart.” The tiny hamlet has caught state attention again recently when a group of concerned citizens, “Citizens Against Pollution” (CAPS), filed a lawsuit against the Texas Railroad Commission. The group is taking on the petroleum regulator’s decision to permit a facility which would store oilfield waste, including drill cuttings, oil-based muds, fracking sand and other toxic leftovers. The lawsuit, which was filed last month in Travis County district court, argues that the commission’s three members were in error when they unanimously approved the development by San Antonio-based Pyote Reclamation Services.

Neil Schuenemann blood drive

God First! Heavenly Father, only a few of us attempt to be concerned for someone who is having problems because we think we are invading their space or privacy. Our reluctance is easy to think to just letting go and forget it. But Lord, we know we should help others if we can. Help us to be better understanding and caution our words as we give them opportunity to express their needs anytime they are willing and ready. We ask in the name of our Dear Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen. Lord, we are going Your way! Pray for those who are ill, suffering or in harm’s way.
