    After early complaints that out-of-state firms got the most jobs, some local construction trade workers and union members in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia say they're now benefiting in a big way from the Marcellus and Utica Shale oil and gas boom.That vocal support from blue-collar workers complicates efforts by environmentalists to limit the drilling process known as fracking.

RITA (AP) — Residents of a former coal camp in Logan County no longer have to worry about being evicted.

The properties' new owner, DB Land LLC, is giving residents of Rita the option to buy their lots. The company acquired the rental properties from Snap Creek Properties.

More than 30 residents had received eviction notices from DB Land in September.

Jim Lewis with DB Land tells The Logan Banner that a company representative will meet with residents Monday evening to give them sizing and pricing for their lots. They will have until the end of January to decide whether they will buy the lots.

Any lots that aren't bought will be offered to others who need home sites.
