@warrenproud and neworleansman . the reason you dont see Ohio plates is because our local work force has become fat and lazy living off of gov't assistance. why work when everyone else is paying for your house, food, and health care?more than half of applicants from Ohio fail their drug test. ***********ideastream****/news/feature/51306

@pitten. Your absolutely right. The older generation had great prosperity from the steel mills and the GM and Packard in its hey day. I remember driving down 422 in youngstown and seeing all of that smoke with its PCB,s mercury etc. Boy did it stink. Few complained though because people were hard workers and they understood that that meant jobs and prosperity for anyone that wanted it. We didnt whine about the owners making more money than us. the oil and gas industry is here to stay and i hope it is the boom that we all expect. When you consider the spin off jobs like V&M star and others servicing the industry the upside is staggering.

If this well was in a nice development you would be complaining to. Most of these people are at the mercy of the person who owns the trailer park. boondockssaints lets put one in your living room and see if you like it.

Yeah, the influx of trucks from Texas are all over the place. I've seen an increase from Georgia and Tennessee. The local people can't stay off of drugs to get accepted into certification programs for the drilling Shale jobs. Their also not here permanently, so we won't see any increase in real estate sales due to increased population. They will damage further our water supplies and make the ground unstable and then move on.

I find it funny that the older generation that HAD it's prosperity wants to screw the younger generation. School Levy's not passing, GE warren plant, no fracking job, ect,.

This area is going to be like Detroit if these people don't change things

The first response is probably who gives a darn about people living in a trailer park. I hope they have their water tested frequently and sue the park owner for some of that money he took in at their expense if their water quality is affected.

Paid for their land not for destroying their water supply. Oh, collateral damage. It's only just begun. With more than half our rivers in this country unable to support life anymore what's to worry about a few wells? We need the moeny right? Life is all about money right? Profit motive right?

watermellonhead, these people live in a trailer park, don't own the property, the park does and aren't getting sh!t for from the process. Most people in this part of the that particular park are retired, and live there because it WAS nice, quiet and required minimal expense and upkeep. In other words, They have NO MINERAL RIGHTS TO SELL. But I guess when you only own the structure(no land) you have no say in what happens. I wonder if they talked to the park owner and asked what kind of check he/she got for selling the mineral rights for the park? 640 are required to have mineral rights to in order to drill one of these wells. So I'm sure the park owner took his grab of cash as well as the park residents rent.

Couple of bucks! These people are getting nice money for the right to use their land. I'll bet you would not turn it down.

Since it's a MOBILE home park, can't they take their trailers and move them elsewhere?

"We don't want them over here. I do object to them being so close," McCrudden said.

Well, I don't like the sound when a plane flies over my house, so let's outlaw air travel. And utility poles are unsightly, so lets eliminate electricity service. Plus, light pollution is interfering with my astronomy hobby, so let's outlaw security lights. It's noisy when they cut the grass at the ball field on my street, so they should just close it.

Mrs. McCrudden, private property is a two way street. Your neighbor's rights to lawfully use their private property do not depend on what you "want".

You cannot believe the complaints I've heard when people buy a house in the fall/winter, only to find out that the adjacent farmer spreads manaure... manuer...manuare...cow crap... in the spring.

It's not that I disagree with these citizen's concerns, it's just that life is never perfect . . . never perfect.

As far as the trucks are concerned ALL trucking companies should make more use of GPS and GoogleMaps to more correctly route their trucks. Many GPS will actually allow the route to be programmed and GoogleMaps is free... come on... this is 2013, not 1913.

How the ODNR allowed drilling and fracking for a gas well, within a hundred feet of a freshwater lake and residences, is mind boggling. Where is the oversight? The truck traffic for a 'regular construction site' does not include heavy trucks driving on a private, light traffic, road.

It all comes to, will it kill you know or kill you later. The inevitable is that your days are numbered. Modern day Russian Roulette with a few winners on the greedy money top side. Sounds like a win to win scenario, doesn't it? NOT

well I'm sure they chose the close proximity to the trailer park over any decent subdivision. Not a coincidence

"not in my back yard" is what we hear repeatedly. We want the jobs and economic benefit, but we don't want to be made uncomfortable when it happens. I think the discomfort of a few is OK for the benefit of many in this area.
