Tour De Frack

Ono and Lennon at our first stop, the Hollenbeck gas well on Franklin Forks Road, where local Vera Scroggins says her neighbors complain of noise, trucks, water contamination and nasty smells at all hours. Our arrival was delayed when a WPX Energy representative stopped his car in front of our bus before we headed down the road. "People are saying, 'Oh, they’re just a bunch of artists who don’t know anything," says Ono, "But I really wanted to show what is happening and the Pennsylvania people were saying, 'Please come and see it.' Of course I had to go."
