Telecasts of oil drilling forum available

The Florida State University recently hosted the Florida Forum on Energy Exploration (Oct. 28) and the Florida Symposium on Offshore Energy — Part I: Oil and Gas (Nov. 2) to advance a public dialogue on the many issues that must be addressed in any offshore drilling proposal that the state of Florida considers over the next year. Now, cable television viewers in Gadsden, Leon, and Wakulla counties will have an opportunity to view recordings of both events as Comcast Channel 4 makes plans to telecast them throughout the month of November.
