GAS DRILLING-AMISH

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.

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.
