"Each new bit of good news about shale-gas prospects in Ohio makes the future look brighter," reads an editorial in the August 10, 2011 edition of the Columbus Dispatch.  The editorial emphasizes not only the potential economic benefits of Marcellus and Utica shale development in eastern Ohio, but notes that the "promise of a gas-drilling boom actually has breathed new life into Ohio’s steel industry."  In fact, the editorial specifically identifies three large Ohio manufacturing companies (Vallourec & Manesmann Holdings Inc., U.S. Steel and Timken Co.) as poised to take advantage of these shale opportunities.  Perhaps most importantly, rather than focusing on the potential environmental problems associated with horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing, the editorial reasonably calls for governmental leaders and oil and gas developers to accept Governor Kasich's invitation to "consider the opportunities in Ohio," but "protect public safety and the environment" through a “commitment to responsible corporate citizenship.”
