Premier, I could not agree with you more. I will say though that our area has benefited from higher grocery prices, terrible roads, ******** behind the wheels of the gas industry pick up trucks, noisy traffic, and no water left in the Creek or River for recreation...so hey, we can't say we all aren't benefiting from the gas industry!

Note to the Publisher and Editor: Even your sister newspapers in Altoona and the home office in Wheeling have long since dropped the Rah Rah how great the natural gas boom is.

And, you even still have click through ads for ShalePlay, and Marcellus, neither one of which has updated their site in the past year!

MisMac:"It does not take a rocket scientist to realize that our streams and creeks have been sucked dry."

Absolutely true! But, I'll bet you'll see crick levels rising now.
