BALTIC, Ohio â¿¿ In parts of Ohio and Pennsylvania where horse-drawn buggies clip-clop at the pace of a bygone era, Amish communities are debating a new temptation: the large amounts of cash that can come with oil and gas hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. In some ways, the Amish attitudes toward fracking are as different from the outside world as their clothes and traditions. Instead of worries about air and water pollution, they're thinking about people's souls. Says one adherent: "Amish are no different than anybody else. The power of big money can bring spiritual corruption." By Julie Carr Smyth and Kevin Begos.

NEW YORK â¿¿ For many small business owners, the golden years aren't looking so shiny. Nearly two-thirds of small business owners say they aren't saving enough to retire. Even more say they are worried about their ability to save enough for the lifestyle they want when they do stop working. Some are trying to correct this oversight by aggressively by putting money aside, others are taking a big risk -- planning to sell their companies one day and use the proceeds to fund their retirement. By Business Writer Joyce M. Rosenberg.

NEW YORK â¿¿ Think of a leading phone maker, and Apple and Samsung might come to mind. You might even think of HTC, maker of the well-received One phone. But you're probably not thinking Sony, a company better known for its TVs, cameras and video game machines. With the new Xperia Z phone, Sony shows it can play in the big leagues. By Anick Jesdanun.
