Bulldozers scraped down the last few inches of a gas well road Monday, a road residents believe was partly to blame for increased flooding in East Fort Worth.
The fireworks still went off. The parades wound through the streets. The money to pay for it all however, was not as easy to find for some cities this year.
Chesapeake Energy, one of the key companies which developed the Barnett Shale natural gas field in North Texas, is laying off about 70 local employees.

With natural gas positioned as the energy source to power Texas homes for 200 years, Larry Langston expected to get at least a few decades of production out of the gas under his land.
Carolyn Allen sits down for a little bit of afternoon TV. She says it’s her escape from what’s going on right outside the window. “They are across the street and there they are,” says Allen,76, “I’ve lived here 30 years. We are all family.”
