Shouldn’t it be time you gave up, I mean isn’t this the 3rd. time you have run things into the ground, first with Leckie Smokeless, court documents online says that you owed hundreds of thousands of dollars to workers, vendors who haven’t seen a penny of what you owe, and others before you bailed out blaming it all on the UMWA, Royal Scott? What happened to that, and now the big one Greenbrier smokeless coal, your latest and last hopeless endeavor. That operation had potential to be a great operation, but your management in place has run it into the ground, unintentionally or intentionally, who knows? I think when you came back to WV this time you and your "staff" had bitten off more than you can handle, this operation was too big for small time operators who run punch mines. so let someone else come in and run it, let the other companies who know how and can run a coal company run it like it should be one, you need to bow out while you still have what dignity you have left and leave. Your 1970's way of mining has killed that place and only the workers will suffer, not you, bankruptcy agreement with Lehman Brothers online indicate that you pay yourself $37,000 a month from the midland trail operation alone! You’re not hurting for money, the 160+ plus guys who have already lost their jobs this year are, so move aside, sell and leave, I’m sure Greenbrier County will be a better place with the current management in place gone. Here’s an idea, there is a book called “business management for dummies” if you like I will buy you a copy, but I don’t think they have one for coal mining yet.
