From the News-Herald, Northern Ohio:
“They come to your door with a deal hard to pass up, but it’s not all bells and whistles, says Peter Dautartas of Chester Township.
“Dautartas, who recently signed a lease to have an oil well drilled in his yard, was one of several township residents who spoke out against oil and gas drilling in their neighborhoods Monday night at West Geauga High School.
. . . . .
“‘They promise you the world. They promised us so many things and when the well was in, all of a sudden they forgot their end of the deal, which I think is a breech of contract,’ Dautartas said to the table of representatives.”

Cade. Nay, that I mean to do. Is not this a lamentable thing, that of the skin of an innocent lamb should be made parchment? that parchment being scribbled o’er, should undo a man? Some say the bee stings: but I say, ’tis the bee’s wax, for I did but seal once to a thing, and I was never mine own man since.
