Marcellus Leases Paying Big Money To Landowners

Marcellus Shale brings big checks for some landowners

By FORD TURNER, The Patriot-News

Hundreds of people from far-flung farms and rural communities across a large swath of northern Pennsylvania trekked to an American Legion post this weekend to have checks -- often for large, life-changing amounts of money -- pressed into their hands.

It went on throughout the day yesterday and continued this morning. Some people cried with happiness.

"There were a lot of checks that were well over $100,000," said Chip Lines-Burgess, who is attending the event. "It is a lot of money for people up here. It is a lot of money for people anywhere." More....

God bless those that came into the money...they may own the land but
I bet they held jobs and worked hard to pay the taxes and keep their land even in difficult times.
The best out come for ones life is to take responsibility for ones self baring old age and real physical disabilities you should not depend on any one else to support you.

As development of Marcellus shale natural gas grows in Pennsylvania, businesspeople statewide are being invited to a series of seminars to learn how it may create opportunities for their businesses.

The Potter County Education Council is hosting a ‘Your Business & Marcellus Shale” educational program at the Coudersport Office to help entrepreneurs and established small- and medium sized businesses understand and respond to Marcellus shale-related business opportunities

It has been my experience that most farmers are pretty hard working people.

It is also a line of work that does not usually reward with much vacation time.

Barry will find a way to get the money back. God bless the farmer. I like to eat. It ain't grown in cellophane.

Why not? It costs more to feed a cow than the milk brings in.

hang the welfare people

Ask not what... said...

Does anyone and I mean anyone still feel this way?

"Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country!"...Is just seems to me now I all hear and see is, what can I get for the least amount of effort...just makes me sick!

If you want more in and out of your life, invest time and money and hard work like some of the rest of us have done.

More often than not when some people do receive help they then expect it, instead of treating it as a hand up and then pulling themselves up by their own boot straps! No all people are this way but this is becoming the norm!

Money won't save the people who are getting these checks. When their water becomes toxic and they are poisened to death.

get a job i do work for a living my point was that hard working families cant get help for crap because the commonwealth of pa only gives to people who take advantage of the government so that hard working families who have to pay bills and taxes cant get help must be nice to get everything for free read before you comment next time
