Niki Chochrek, middle, and Angie Holliday, right, supporters of Frack Free Denton, asked students last week if they’ve heard about the proposed fracking ban on the ballot for the Nov. 4 election. If voters decide to ban fracking, Denton will become the first U.S. city with extensive drilling to do so. Those who oppose the ban claim that it is irresponsible not to frack.
