Nally & Hamilton is the dirtiest company around you better do all you can to keep them out.It can be mined but Nally & Hamilton will not follow any federal or state guidelines. Natural Resources are doing their job but the Governor is overlooking anything N&H do because of campaign contributions.They are basically "wildcating with the governments approval".I believe in mining coal but I believe in doing it right.I believe in telling the truth you will not get the truth from them. Nally & Hamilton do not follow the rules they are a threat to our nation and the mining industry itself.I want to keep the lights on and the water .You better fight them hard. Go to the media. It is outside the range of the Governor and he cant stop it .Call local media and get the ball rolling. It isnt about not mining its about following the rules.

We can have coal and have jobs but mine within the rules Natural Resources have established.We have a Governor who looks the other way for a company that has violated rules all over the entire state of ky .

“They want to destroy streams that feed our reservoirs and the mountain above Benham and Lynch,” said Sturgill.“We’re concerned about the Portal 31 Exhibition Coal Mine, Lynch Depot, Benham Coal Miners Memorial Theater, the School House Inn and the Coal Museum. They are all part of our history and heritage. The National Trust for Historical Preservation has listed Black Mountain as one of the 11 most endangered historic places. There has been $30 million spent on Portal 31. It’ll all be lost if they mine under these places.”

You are so right, the way they mine they cost the state money.They destroy the roads and the streams are so muddy.Hey that is not how it is done if the rules are followed!We had lights before they came to town and if we can get them out of here we can keep our water too!
