The "boss" for Shell/East landman, claimed to have 35 people in Tioga County last August ready to do business then they all went silent just before the failed Lease Sale.

The landmen that were working Tioga are probably working in another county. Most landmen spend a majority of their time travelling around to where ever the current work is......sometimes they are in the same place for years, other times, it could just be weeks.

They are probably like the real estate agents here. When I was buying my property, I could never contact my agent...he was always out hunting or cutting hay or something.

Wonder what 35 Shell/East Landman do for a living when they don't do leasing. I never looked at it as a part time job.

There's still a lot of drilling activity in southern Delmar/Shippen townships. The gravel trucks roll by constantly, and I saw a truck with drillbits looking very lost sitting by the side of the road yesterday. I haven't heard of any leasing activity in the area, though, since last June or July.

Looks like the marcellus shale ruckus has come to a standstill at Tioga county. No gas trucks seem to be moving in the Cowanesque valley lately. I have a friend from Galeton who recently acquired a tractor to pull trailors loaded with gas pipe from Pittsburg to the Canton area. I don't know if he has made any trips as yet however.

Yeah, there's another 'boil water advisory' in Wellsboro. It's something to do with the sand filters, and it happens regularly. This time seems worse than usual. It impacts a lot of local businesses...McDonalds can't serve sodas, BiLo can't spray water on the produce, the schools have to buy in bottled water, etc.

Water Quality in Wellsboro? Heard a rumor that folks were having to boil their water in town?

I drove up past the house yesterday Ann, after the incident. I am very familiar with that area. In fact I have worked there within a stone's throw of the place. They had the entire area lighted up with local fire truck flood lights. Time was on the side of the police. They could have served that paper very early in the morning I would think.

But he was an old man who probably did not have many years left. So instead of thinking of how best to take him alive, and get him to a hospital,

The cops opted to "Lets put him down and then we can all go home!"

Very little information was released. So why was there such a hush hush attitude about it?

Bill, shooting to disable is something that happens more often on television than in real life law enforcement. Agreed that it probably wasn't handled as well as it could have been. For example, serving a mental healt warrant that could reasonably be expected to be resisted probably shouldn;t be done with only a couple hours of daylight left. But it appears that once he did threaten the officers, they withdrew, called for reinforcements, and secured the area around the house. Using tear gas or another device to force him out of the house would have been counter-productive. There was no indication he had a hostage or was otherwise a danger to the public, so they were waiting him out.

Once he came out of the house shooting, he did become a danger to the public and I don't see that the police had a choice but to fire to stop him.
It was night and if you saw the footage of the house on TV, there were evergreen trees in the yard. His age was irrelevant; he had a gun. And, he may have decided "suicide by police" was his best option. .
