"Gas Plans Divide Central Pennsylvania Community"

"The tension between drillers in Pennsylvania's gas-rich Marcellus shale and communities trying protect natural resources has reached a fevered pitch in Clinton County, where a zoning hearing board resigned rather than allow a water withdrawal station at a scenic bend of the West Branch of the Susquehanna River that draws kayakers, hang gliders, hunters and fly fishermen.

Depending upon who is talking, the three former Chapman Township Zoning Hearing Board members are either heroes or obstructionists trying to stall economic progress in Clinton County, home to five state parks, Pennsylvania's largest state forest and a 9.6 percent unemployment rate."
