where in the he11 did you learn how to spell? obvious you aren't dumb because you can atleast turn on the computer and type but with alot of mispelled words. Topixs needs a spell checker..

they close every year for the holidays, its their way of saying "merry f****** Christmas!"
we need more stable jobs in the area that dont involve coal and trees for sure...
You all really need to think before you talk on here.. This is the first time since the mill has been started that it has shut down. They have scratched and fought to keep it open this long and if they could have kept it going they would have because think about all the looses they have in letting the equitment sit. Plus trying to get all the workers back to reopen. Its not a benefit to them in any way.
THE REASON THEY SHUT HYDEN DOWN!!!
HORRIBLE weather, prices in logs and lumber, slowing rate in sales,. END OF DISCUSSION. Anything negative said is out of jelousy and angree. The family deeserves appologys for all negative comments.

Im not going to turn this into something political. But what I said is correct. George Bush didnt destroy us. Did he blow up the World Trade Centers, or did he make sure it didnt happen again. Whether you like him or not, hes protected your butte every since we were attacked. But I guess you dont respect that.

Boy you really need to think yourself I used to work there and a few of my family still do, I know for a fact I was off work a few christmases!

Doesnt matter the point here is the poor guys who'll be without work now.

You're so wrong! Jimmy started the mill in the 70's up in Laurel Fork, then he bought the Mill
from Eddy J. Moore that is located on Rockhouse.
Then they bought the mill out London and several other places. So it wasn't his dad, Buster, but it was Jimmy that started the Mills that are running today. Buster built Mills when he was in the Navy, but Jimmy was the one that bought this Mill along with his brother Willie.
Thank you and you are exactly right.

Buster taught those boys to be hard workers and good citizens.

I hope the economy picks up soon. Let's all pray things improve and they can reopen the mill. It is a big asset to this county.

Hiram Cornett is another good person, and that is all I know. I am not here to talk bad about anyone or to argue. I just hope things improve for their business so they can reopen.

what about boy. The lumber industry always has and always will slow down in the winter. They might lay off a couple of people in the winter but they dont have near the work going on that needs to be done. Its not because there rich and greedy and like to see people suffer. You think you know so much dont you. Where not talkin about 1 or 2 jobs laid off. Im talkin about the entire mill shutting down.. Yeah begleys has laid off a could of times, but this is the first time they have ever shut down.

You are so wrong about the Begley boys. They love their families and are good to everyone. Most people will only help their family, but they will help anyone in need. They have donated so much to our county and they need to be recongized
for all the good they do. They are self-made millionaires. They worked hard for what they have and helped a lot of people along the way.
As far as I know Harm Cornett is a good person, but he had nothing to do with where the mill is.
He bought into the Mill after it was well established. Merry Christmas

This is absolutely true and I have quit bringing that junk home with me. For many years now, I have only purchased necessities, meaning food and cleaning supplies. That junk is nothing but clutter,etc. The toys are poisioning our children and the clothes, God only knows how many children work in sweat shops to make them.

God Bless You All & Merry Christmas.

I know its hard for all the families but there are people here in this county suffering far more god has always provided for the families here because of our cristian raising our prayer worriors are probably working overtime and one cant even begin to understand all the problems each family is having so please be humble in your remarks at least they even tried to keep this job going they may not come back after the country gets back on track.also who will pay jimmy and georges bills i would say that alone is a years salary for the bosses at begleys just to cover one month
