"NO INITIATIVE" Wrong!!!! It appears to me that these people have lots of initiative.The problem is it is pointed at Eureka Hunter and they don't play well. FYI Eureka you bought a pipeline that had 26 house holds on it or at least 78 people. These people did not seek this service out it was solicited to them and 20 years ago 26 families changed their whole life style to gas. I am hearing laws have change going under I-77. So that means E/H has a grandfathered lease from 1919 that is worth MILLIONS. Also it is leaking out from employees of E/H that they are going to put a 20" pipeline on right of way. To summarize get the 26 nuisances out of my way so we can make BILLIONS.

Please don't believe Eureka when they say homeowners haven't been pro-active. Just because each homeowner isn't reporting to Eureka's secretary every time they get an estimate or talk to an alternative energy supplier does not mean they haven't been working hard trying to have a "plan B" in place. Eureka bought the pipeline in 2010 with no intention of being a natural gas provider to these customers. Yet for 3 years, they gave NOT ONE clue that they planned to phase it out. That notice came on May 14th, in a letter that stated the shut-off would occur July 1st. No flexibility, no negotiation.

It wasn't until the group requested a meeting with Triad/Eureka that they were able to get a vague extension "as long as they worked toward a resolution". It was the homeowners who obtained maps, called other gas suppliers, etc... And the group spokespeople periodically updated Eureka about their progress. Eureka tried to issue another shut-off date, but PUCO stepped in and determined that Eureka hadn't done enough to resolve the situation.

I just got a call telling me to look at this blog. Not ever having time to read this stuff or more going on for myself than to lay around all day punching keys. I take this time now to say to whoever you are saying these slanderous accusations. If your heart would stop right now are you going to heaven? Now have a great day and I hope your familie never has to go through what mine is going through.
