Residents upset with neighbor's natural gas drilling

GATES MILLS, Ohio - Some residents in an affluent Cleveland suburb are upset with a neighbor who's drilling for natural gas in her front yard.

David Johnson says that Roxanne Shea is hurting their neighborhood in Gates Mills, where homes sell for $250,000 or more.

Johnson complained to village police about the clanking drilling rig, but to no avail. State lawmakers abolished the power of cities to regulate gas wells two years ago.

Shea says the drilling will stop in a day or two. She says that the drilling will help her and some neighbors save money on their natural gas.
