We work all over the U.S in the gas industry.The roads have ALWAYS been better when we finish a job,then they were when we started.It sure won't take much in Potter County,to make them better.

Instead of being negative all the time lets at least consider the fact that the companies are willing to fix these roads once the wells are drilled. That really is the way it is in the townships. Ask around.

Everytime I read about the Marcellus Shale Hoopla, a old tune starts playing,
Go on take the money and run
Go on take the money and run
Go on take the money and run
Go on take the money and run

And What does everyday industrial complex look like, smell like? How's the crime rate? How's the water supply? What's the cancer rate?

did heimel charge the tax payers for his trip to west branch township?

I think county officials' are allowed to charge mileage because that saves money from having a county car with the insurance and all the upkeep and such. It's the state legislatures where this gets abused as they get a daily allowance for travel expenses even if they don't go anywhere.
