I'm not saying there not going to, in fact they just told us that lone mountain want be making any money 2013 but will make enough to stay afloat. I'm just really curious is to what makes you guys think this? To be honest I just don't see them going all year and not making any money. Think there just telling us this so we want be worrying. With all the accidents Cloverfork is having it sure don't make it look good either. They want to blame the men for getting hurt, but in fact its those smothering bosses standing over our back rushing us in all we do. They put pressure on the bosses outside and they come in and act stupid getting men hurt left and right. So they are the ones to blame not the men!!!!!!!!!!

Ok why every week there is a new post about lay off. instead of getting on here and putting this hear say bs on here, why not go spend time with your fam? Instead of getting on here and worrying people sick. Truth be told I dont want to know when or if i will get canned, because there isnt anything you can do about it. I hvae things i will lose like everyone but...No sense in worrying about what we can fix. So please people stop posting this kind of stuff ever week.

Fact of the matter is, being a coal miner is scary. I feel for the miners. They go to work every day not knowing if it's the last time they get to boot up. Why do you people keep having to come on here and make these posts? Don't you think these men are worried enough?

Every week it's a new "rumor", truth of the matter is NO ONE knows if or when LMP will have a lay off. I believe it would be better if everyone would let these rumors die for good. These miners have children and other family that can get on here and read these rumors, which then worries them. I understand that it's stressful not knowing the truth about the future of one's job but that doesn't mean you should start rumors that cause more stress and worry. Instead of gossiping and causing stress let's all PRAY for the coal miners, their families, and the coal industry. I would love to see all the coal miners be able to work and provide for their families. I pray nightly that our nation is blessed with a leader that can help the future of the miners that have been laid off and the miners that are still working. We should (including myself) pray about these issues instead of cause more worry and stress.
