We will survive as Number Three if that "evil" ethane plant comes to the valley and all the drilling and fracturing it will take to supply the plant and all the pipeline construction it will take to move the gas to the plant to be cracked and the jobs needed to lay the new tracks and roads needed to move the cracked products to the customers that will use it or the jobbers that will be needed to furnish materials and parts to all those that will need them. If the plant does get built, and I hope it does, there may be hope for the valley and some decent jobs for the future.

Random21, I hope you are right. But I've lived in our area long enough to hear from the Roundtable/Development people that the "next big thing is around the corner" and nothing ever happens. Be optimistic, but based on the past don't get your hopes up.
