Being Bullied is no good for the people of Harlan who have been bullied too much already.Harlan County is a humble ,descent people whose young people have fallen prey to drug abuse for lack of jobs and boredom in my opinion.Mr Grieshop you are a waste of tax payer dollars !!!Being pro-coal or anti-coal is not the point here.I think Mr Grieshop has crossed a line called "respect for fellow man and human dignity".Lynch should be preserved as it is.There are other places to mine besides the money gained through severance is being used in ways that arent building up a adequate job base AS MOST HARLAN COUNTIANS KNOW.Dont scarifice Lynch for your personal gain.Mr Grishop your roots are not Harlan County its Pennsylvania you have some nerve telling the people of our town we are anti-coal!We are tired of being controlled by the JE who has no idea what the people need if there is a true need for help he turns his head!I feel it is unconstitutional for you to deny these people of tax dollars Mr Grieshop ITS NOT YOUR MONEY!DONT YOU GET ENOUGH UNDER THE TABLE MONEY WITHOUT HURTING THE CITY OF LYNCH!!
