in my opinion it would be great for the economical side of santa rosa county, although it will be sad to see drilling equipment on our state park, the amount of revenue created is worth the loss of a small portion of blackwater.

Humans are destroying beautiful places in search of economical benefits. Money has become more important than the land and waterways we live on. Drilling doesn't only effect that one little area, it effects the river which in turn runs into other rivers that end in the oceans. Do a little research. Watch "gasland" it's a documentary about this exact thing.
