The city fathers of Hobbs, New Mexico, the oil and gas capitol of our state, are concerned that their cell phone tower ordinance needs more work on where to locate towers in the city. Now, if they could just see the wisdom of taking the same consideration on placement of oil and gas wells. Why, they might even support some wilderness!
A friend of mine once said that if you flew over Hobbs with a magnet that it would disappear. Lots of rigs, pipes, metal warehouses for the oil guys, and metal gathering infrastructure for the oil fields.
