McGill credits the rush of "land men" to the county looking for prime parcels of land for exploration linked to a debated drilling practice of hydraulic fracturings, commonly known as "fracking," with saving her business. The hordes of "land men" whose patronage of her shop for java and lunch helped her pay off the business' 10-year bank note. (AP Photo/WFIW News, Len Wells)
