CADIZ – Harrison County Commissioner Don Bethel has an idea for local communities to benefit from the groundswell of gas and oil drilling and recently shared his idea with other leaders.

Bethel discussed meetings he and fellow county commissioners attended last week regarding Marcellus and Utica shale, saying counties, townships and villages should make some green from the ventures. Details of the proposal and commissioners other actions can be found in this week’s print edition of the Harrison News-Herald.
