WEST UNION, W.Va.
The Doddridge County school system hopes to capitalize on a natural gas drilling boom.
Coffman says the lease will provide a small amount of money to the school system. If the operation produces natural gas, the school system will receive a royalty.
He says the school system won't make a lot of money. But every bit helps.
