Any details about any of the miners getting laid off from darby mine? I heard more miners are getting laid off? I work at darby still? Lone mountain is up to something? Closing up middle splint and pardee wax mines for good. Anyone know about another lay-off coming?

Hate to bust your bubble but all you are gonna get on here is opinions and "I thinks". No one will know til lone mtn wants you to know. If they are shutting down, they sure are putting a lot of money up to get it going.

I got the boot with other miners. Lone mountain can save some miner jobs. Get rid of a security company. Why pay for 2 when u just need one. Securitas and A&A lone mountain employees. Cut one loose and save a miner.

I worked 12 years at powell mountain coal. I worked with anthony fee roger fleenor titus whitt tj harless and hawk eye. Loyal service to powell mountain. What happens walking papers for my services. The comment about two security companies is true. The A&A company is a waste. Guarding a empty prep plant and a run down mine. Save some cash put a gate up at middle splint. Pardee mine has a gate and no guard. They patrol the area and thats good enuff. We need a union to protect are jobs. Miners are bread winners for the coal company not the dead weight security. We got families and bills to pay. My daughter asked me why did I lose my job. How are we going to eat. Thanks lone mountain let security mine your coal.

I guess you are gonna have to go get your G.E.D. and train for a new job and get used to making $ 7.25 an hour instead of $ 20. I don't think any high school drop out should be rewarded wth a $ 20 an hour job. People with a college education don't make that much.

Obama 12-16 ... turn your electric off for a while & sit in the dark w/out air or heat,hot water or any of the other finer things in life the COAL MINERS PROVIDE FOR YOU!!! Yes they risk their life every second of every day they work & no amount of money ( hourly pay ) would ever be enough. All of my family all the way back to my great,great,great grand parents were COAL MINERS & guess what it did not matter if they had graduated high school or not they were supporting their family.
I AM A COAL MINERS GRAND DAUGHTER, DAUGHTER, & WIFE & AM DAM PROUD OF IT!!!!!!!!!!

Poor little imbreed girl. I bet you own an SUV with the coal miners daughter emblem on your back windsheild,the one with the coal miner on his hands and knees, that says coal miners daughter: The lower my daddy goes, the hornier I get. And oh yeah as long as their is natural gas, I will not be sitting in the dark. Vote OBAMA in 2012.

Poor little inbred (imbreed lol) boy. I bet you own a shitty little hoopty. It amazes me that some people who live in coal country can have such a disrespectful view of coal miners. Is it that you are bitter that you are 3rd generation welfare and get pissed when you see blue collar working class families enjoy the fruits of their (hard working) labor? Grow up and try it sometime boy, then tell us if you think $20 an hr is too much.

ignorance is rampant on this thread. colords arent welcome? wtf? you little girl need to get out of them there hills and realize there is a great big world beyond Lee County. backwoods morons.

I respect the coal miners they have a very hard job and work hard. but I will NOT fall at their feet like they and mostly their families expect. most of this belly aching are these stay at home wives who get out and run the roads and spend their husbands checks.
