Also southern coal is not taking over robert clears permit at coalgood. They wanted to strip with roberts permit, that can't happen. Robert took all of his equipment out of coalgood. The only thing going on there is reclaming, after that, well that should be it, no coal left.
I hate to admit it, me being a coal man myself, but coal i'm afraid is on its way out, in the east anyway.

You speak the truth and everyone in the coalfields needs to prepare for the end of coal.

The original story was 850 jobs to start, and then possibly up to 4000. The reason that can't be true is because it just took 1500 employees when Gilliam owned it, and those 1500 provided all the coal that they were capable of loading. So what in the hell are you going to do with 3 times that much coal? The tipple at Cumberland was running 24/7, maxed out, and doing everything it could and then some from the coal that 1500 men produced. They would have to have 2 more tipples the same size as Cumberland to wash that much coal!

That dog won't hunt.

Yes they were still taking apps. They didn't ask for any money. But they do have a lot of apps. If it is a scam they haven't been shut down yet, and they were a lot of people there.

I don't believe it's a 'scam' but they don't really appear 'professional' over there (norton). That "Otto Smith" guy acted like he was part owners, told us to write his name down as a reference. He just seemed so 'innertwined' with Eddie and to watch him on tv (the news) he seems like he is one of us, that just might luck up and land a good job. Leaves me scratching my head. BUT if it's a scam, WHY would they have 'us' come over to norton and put an application in? HOW would that benefit them?? can anyone answer that, how would it benefit them? Actually they're loosing money on the paper, pens, and ink for us to walk in. I just honestly don't know, but am hoping for the best....

1 fact is i was told from a CSX employee that Daniel Bunn and Richard Gilliam had a meeting w/CSX and its true. Daniel Bunn, the man with the money bought the place and he's having Richard G. to run everything.

Professionals contracting is a scam. Some of the men that put in applications had outdated retraining. In order to get a job he said they needed updated retraining (that's what mr. Estep's business does). Also some men had been called for a drug test and was having to pay for that as well. He wanted "laid off miners" because he was expecting a lot of them to have outdated retraining. Make sense now??
