Fracking opponents

KENT: Groups that are opposed to hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, in the Kent area will meet at 6:45 tonight at the Kent Free Library, 312 W. Main St.

Several grass-roots groups, including Concerned Citizens Ohio, are sponsoring the meeting.

Organizers want to lobby for more local control of oil and natural gas drilling, said spokesman George Sosebee.

The drilling is now regulated by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.
