Allegheny County residents need to be aware that county government is considering Marcellus shale gas drilling near Deer Lakes Park and the other county parks, including Harrison Hills and Boyce.

The politicians are promising this will provide money to fix Deer Lakes Park. We've heard this same story before from the same people. Look at the money spent before on the dam and lakes. That money was wasted because the county did not hire contractors who knew how to build small lakes and dams.

Our neighbors in West Virginia are paying the price for surface mining. We need to use our natural resources without destroying the environment.

And our harvested natural resources — like natural gas — should be used to solve America's energy needs, not exported to foreign countries like China.
