forwarded at the request of Rob Carillio; of potential interest to NANFA Ohio
members and Hocking Hills attendees

Marathon Ashland Petroleum has currently proposed the construction of a "common
carrier" pipeline. Common carrier pipelines transport a wide variety of
petroleum products such as kerosene, gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel. The
proposed pipeline will stretch from Kenova, W.Va. to Columbus, Ohio plowing
through the most ecologically diverse portion of Ohio. A fifty foot easement
will need to be cleared in order to construct and maintain the pipeline.

The easement is proposed to cross portions of Wayne National Forest, Crane
Hollow State Nature Preserve, Hocking State Forest (Conkles Hollow), Clear Creek
Metro Park, Camp Oty'okwa, Little Rocky Hollow State Nature Preserves, private
forests, farms, and backyards.

Please sign the petition below to HELP STOP the construction of this
environmentally destructive pipeline. Also, please contact Governor Bob Taft at:
Governor Bob Taft 77 S. High St. 30th floor Columbus, Ohio 43215

And ask him for political involvement to save our pristine resources.

When the petition has reached name #50, please forward to
clear the form, and continue to forward it. Please copy and paste this in a new
Email, sign it, and forward this Email to everyone you know!
