NEW MILFORD -- More money is going toward a school in Susquehanna County that focuses on training workers for the natural gas industry.

The State Department of Labor was at Lackawanna College School of Petroleum and Natural Gas near New Milford to announce a $150,000 grant.  That money will buy a natural gas drill pad simulator.

The event at the campus Friday was also to mark one year since Cabot Oil and Gas donated $2.5 million to the school in Susquehanna County.

    Like this ‘astute’ and ‘lucrative’ industry needs a government grant. We’re pretty sure that this industry could have purchased a pad simulator for the school, though, and written it off, too. Our tax state dollars could be utilized in better ways, like repairing our pothole roads, bridges and other infrastructual issues. Nothing like wasting OPM (other peoples money). The rich getting richer. Corporate welfare at it pinnacle.
