Thomas is also looking into solutions such as having bars close earlier, enforcing loitering laws and imposing a curfew on adults.
Is this guy nutz?

Or better yet would the citizens of the area be just as nutz tolerating him for considering such moves?

Development in an area bring in people...crime goes up because of that....deal with it and hire more cops to handle it.

Spent some time in the sticks last weekend. Ended up in a motel bar with a DJ in the middle of driller country. I been to this place quite a few times over the years so kind of familiar with things. My observation was the drillers were not the main source of the problem.

Yes, they party pretty hard to unwind...drinking, dancing, having a good time. I spent some time on the road myself so I know how it goes.

What I saw that appeared to be the crux of the headaches were the local females. These driller guys had the money to throw around buying drinks and such; and the local gals were eating it up, which in the end the local guys were not happy about.

that is a problem that is not related to drilling but is as old as man himself...
This is true....but the potential problems I observed were because of the locals. Only problem I have with the drillers is they are driving motel prices through the roof. I have an invite to help intoduce some people to archery comming up next month....volunteer stuff. I am not sure I can justify $125 a night in the middle of nowhere in PA.

So the local girls are the problem.... hmmm.. maybe you should run for mayor!
Nope...the gals are the crux of the problem. The problem is more related to the inadequacies of the local men. Mix in some beer muscles and the fun begins.

Interesting you blame the drillers for high motel rates; do you blame the motorists for high gasoline prices?
Spend a fair amount of time in motels in the course of a year....maybe 60 nights or so. I am a platinum elite member for one hotel chain. I have stayed in motels up in your neck of the woods as recent as last year. I can tell you without doubt the prices have been inflated about 30% since then. Check out motel rates for Bradford PA....$100 for a night during the week? .... last year I stayed at that Comfort Inn for 69 bucks.

I much more prefer a room with a king sized bed and jacuzzi.
That is pretty much the norm.....I enjoy my comforts.
Which reminds me....I need to book a room for this weekend in Cambria County.

Ehhh....The locals don't bother me none...ain't my fault they get upset over their women. I am from an urban area and spending money hand over fist in a night club is pretty much the norm when socializing. I reckon the women out there just found out a six-pack and a couple of deer chops on the grill just ain't as romantic as it used to be.
