Health Issues Follow Natural Gas Drilling In Texas : NPR

Health Issues Follow Natural Gas Drilling In Texas : NPR

Calvin Tillman Mayor of DISH,TX Public Speaking

I have been asked on several occasions, by folks around the country to come and talk about the air study here in DISH. It seems a bit odd to me, but it appears that tiny DISH, TX has been the only municipality to perform a study such as this. I will happily share our story here in DISH with anyone who would like to hear about. I firmly believe that the only way to change the current situation is stand together. I further believe that helping you, where ever you may be, will also help us hear in DISH. Therefore, if you are interested in hearing about our story please contact me directly to discuss the possibilities. I will not accept funding for any travel expenses or accept any compensation, but also need to know that my presentation would make a difference. I will travel anywhere at no cost to you, if I know it will make a difference. Please give me a call or send an email for details.

Calvin Tillman,
Mayor, DISH TX


Split Estate

I have just watched the documentary Split Estate, regarding the natural gas drilling fields of Colorado and New Mexico. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has current or proposed drilling activity in their area. It was pretty disturbing, due to the fact that many of the folks highlighted in this video, had similar health impacts as the people in DISH do. This is a must for homeowner's and other neighborhood groups who are in the path of the natural gas industry. Please go to for more information.
