Spoken like one living on pension and social security, with no need for a job, mikeyd.

This could be you, Warwood. This could be you, West Virginia. But drive another industry and it's associated economic growth elsewhere, and continue to allow your city and state to deteriorate. Your children can probably find jobs elsewhere, too.

When you’ve been at the bottom so long I guess some people just get used to it.

So why are the RESIDENTS being taxed more than ever????

Why are the commissioners talking about raising vehicle registration by 10 dollars when THIS industry is responsible for the road destruction?

Why are they seeking to TAX the residents to fund the park???

Seems to me the RESIDENTS should be getting massive tax DECREASES as a result!!!!

EVERYBODY should benefit by LOWER taxes, levies, and fees!!!!!

mikeyd “five years and these jobs will be gone”

Interesting. Because when the first horizontal Marcellus production wells in WV were being drilled in 2008, five years ago, people were saying “five years and these jobs will be gone.” I wonder if they'll still be saying that in 2018.

This is more smoke and mirrors

What the gentleman was trying to say is " we will move people here from everywhere except this area to work these jobs".

Please give them a place to park their RV, sell them a mountain dew in the morning, a sandwhich at lunch, and then excuse them as they use foul language and make rude comments about your wife as they eat dinner at a local restaurant.

Went to EGCC to get trained for this. Sent resume, applications, attended job fairs, and visited job sites on the spot. The truth is there are no jobs for locals in this industry unless your true aspirations are "would you like fries with that"

mikeyd, you underestimate the number of wells yet to be drilled. Remember this conversation in 2018.

IworkinPAnow, was your wife blowing cigar smoke at them?

Troll, pretty petty attempt at humor, everyone knows smoking in Ohio restaurants has been banned for years.
