The (Canton) Repository reports today *Friday* that Chesapeake Energy will use the office as an interim operations base until it finds a permanent field office for drilling in the Utica shale formation.

On Saturday officials gathered in Clark County for a ground-breaking ceremony at the Springfield-Beckley airport. It kicks off an 11.6 million dollar construction project that will benefit the Air National Guard Base housed at the airport.
The project will result in a new administrative building and a training complex for the National Guard. It's being built by Tamsah Marker. The Bellefontaine-based company will also construct a warehouse facility and a parking lot to support the new complex.
