About jobs: in other areas of the country the high paying jobs are skilled workers brought in from out of state. Local workers get the lower paying low skilled jobs. You might be able to get a job in a supermarket, bar, restaurant with the influx of workers coming to town. That's where the jobs are. 2 oil and gas workers from LA and FL who were living at a local campground beat to death a Wheeling Jesuit Lacrosse player. You'll need to hire more cops to deal with drunken workers with nothing productive to do on their down time. Every town deals with it.

@Mariettaveteren I love how you point out about everything else causing cancer so it makes it okay if you have one more thing around that causes it. Just the normal oil/gas drilling propaganda to somehow fool the masses .Kind of like the Tobacco Companies as they slowly killed millions of Americans.

Funny seen where Darlene made a comment and she doesnt live near where they are doing the testing.Everyone is always ready to make someone pay.People who do not have land are jealous.And there are those who finally get what they deserve .

yes, there is still these little companies that don't give a darn about the land, and I hope the EPA enforces them, but these companies doing horizontal drilling in this Utica, are very very big companies and safety is a big key.

Fluoride in your drinking water also causes cancer, but I bet your still drinking it. The artificial sweetner such as splenda and others have been known to cause cancer. Baseline is, just about everything does. Water table around 100ft until solid rock, wells are almost 8k feet deep, water doesn't travel uphill nor through a mile and a half of rock. Just like the news, you are wrong Mr. Brown. You have a Bias opinion but you've never been on one of these sites and seen the millions of dollars spent, soil testing, and keeping the environment and the land owners happy.

@Mariettaveteren I really like your commercials for the gas/oil drillers you have all the keywords and you do a great job at it.I really like the part about my cell phone causing cancer.But my cell phone doesn't have benzene in it like Fractal water does that has been proven to cause cancer.As for the jobs just more lies please post a link so people can apply for them in Washington County prove me wrong.This fall when the EPA takes over running oil/gas drilling I hope things will get better.

@ Josh Brown, these jobs are not "Low Skilled" jobs, before you start commenting on things, make sure you got the facts. I cant believe you would say things that deprive americans of jobs even though you think it damages the environment. People like you are why the economy is failing. Toxic cancer you say? the odds of you getting cancer using the phone your posting on here with is much better. You sound like Oneall that posts on here, well Oneall doesn't even work, Obama takes care of him....Josh, if you were in control, then my family, and million other families would starve........

There are jobs out there, you just got to know what to do to get them. These drilling companies contract numerous other companies. Everything from truck drivers, directional drillers, mud engineers, etc. A lot of the companies will bring in there own people, your right, it isn't really about the jobs, its about where the people that are working these jobs are eating, sleeping, buying supplies. Therefor things that they can get locally, they will. A lot of companies from the Marcellus shale are moving this way, such as chevron, chevron uses drilling companies such as Patterson UTI, Haliburton, and many others. Therefor apply to them, u might start working 2 hours away, but it is slowly moving this way.

@ NasCarNut The only jobs I know about are the truck driving one hauling toxic waste water to the wells.From what I understand they only hired 10 people or less in the whole county.The only people making out on all of this are the oil/gas driller and city officials taking bribes.

I'm glad they made the right choice and stoped the mapping.I also really sick about hearing the oil/gas & city talking about bringing job to the area .When all the jobs are short term low skill ones that be be gone once the wells are in place.It's all about money the oil/gas drillers are raping Ohio for all it worth and will leave nothing behind but billions of gallons of toxic cancer causing fluid.

While not doing these seismic testings in Marietta, brings a sigh of relief from the whiners. What happens in the future to these whiners if something happens that this testing could have prevented?

Nice if you live IN city limits. Not that it really matters, considering WHY they're doing this.
