I wonder how she would fair if someone threatened to slit her kids throat like that miner did at Kayford, gathered a group to surround her like a pack of animals, if some industry shoot a blast off in her backyard, or posted stickers that read hang secretaries …

I've frequently mentioned that event & it's the darnest intimidation I've ever seen.

No one ran from the shirt-less, so-called thug. No one grabbed up their kids & left the area. They did GRAB their cameras & start filming & posted selected parts of the event. At one point on one that I watched, the so-called thug is walking past others & even says "excuse me". Now if that's as bad as it gets, then I'll take that any day over old time union thuggery that left folks dead from sniper bullets in the head.

ah – an immediate attempt at neutralization. Why am I not surprised? Your, thinly veiled use of sarcasm is as lacking as the use of “excuse me” in the midst of an attempt to bully and intimidate individuals who hold different views.

The key point you did make is - no body ran - far as I remember they even asked if they wanted to stay awhile and have something eat.

As for the reference to union thuggery and sniper bullets – that makes the industry look desperate.

Gun Owner-Martin County used to be beautiful, and you think a mountain looking like a wasteland is beautiful? Why don't you clean up the sludge Don left in your back yard, he left Martin county looking like a third world country. If you had anything between your ears you could see that.

Gunnie , The ICG Mt Sterling MTR project is an absolutly beautiful sight. One , such as yourself , is probably proud of such utter destruction upon a mountain. And the CONSOL MTR project at Millers Creek on the West Virginia side , is just as pretty. The sad thing is : this beauty is just starting to come to light : where more people see it. Well over 150,000 acres have already been destroyed over the last thirty years in Pike Martin Counties alone. Something to be real proud of. Maybe after the floods wash your home away or the water poisons your kids : one such as yourself will be more proud than ever. It is a disgrace one cannot sleep during a heavy rain for fear of being flooded , or eat a fish caught in Tug River without fear of being poisoned Cannot wait to hear a little more of your Martin County mentality

GUN OWNER , it seems as if everyone has laughed off your feeble attemt to debate a topic. All one ever hears is the same name calling and rhetoric. Another one of dons puppets who does not have the heart to stand up for their rights.

Oh no , More name calling is on the way. I should have been afraid to speak my mind.

Court today - the guy at Kayford was convicted of verbal assault with $100 fine and 6 months unsupervised probation. Acquitted on public intoxication and disorderly conduct.

As straight to the point as that is, I seriously doubt the treehuggers will even understand it.

Once again you twist the topic, they were not interfering with underground mining. Only MTR.

They were still going against a court order. If you were to come on my property where you have no business, I would have you arrested too.

If that is the going rate for indisputably threatening the life of minor, and a very young minor at that, in the State of West Virginia parents might want to consider whether they should be raising their youth in this State. For some reason I don’t think I am going to be to only person who takes note of the injustice you are reporting. Nonetheless, it will be very interesting to see what this States judicial system determines the going rate is for starring down an adult female.

As for the sound bite – with out coal we will be sitting in the dark, I say that is the most irrational statement I have ever heard in my life since society’s progress, not regress. In short, the Federal Government decided one day that coal would provide electricity, and one day they will decide it doesn’t. It is as simply, as that.

I don't think these people actually harmed anyone, maybe a little overzealous, but not violent. And, nobody said coal is going to become extinct anytime soon, deep mining will go on for years. The people are inflamed about a small group of people destroying the environment around us. I do not agree with MTR, and when I learned some of the operators were spreading human sewage sludge on these sites to get vegetation to grow I oppose it even more. This stuff washes into the hollows, into the creeks, and into the rivers, and eventually winds up in everyone's drinking water. The DEP knows about this and does nothing. Even the UMWA protested against this because the don't want their members working near it. Some of them got sick.

Well, I learned something & that's to watch what I say in case someone ever wants to claim verbal abuse.

And aren't we all guilty of adding to pollution? How many don't think about it when they dump drano down the sink or clean their paint brushes or rinse the bathtub cleaner down the drain. We toss bleach in our washers & rinse the hair coloring from our heads. We got to the store & discard our empty bags in trash. Ever sniff that stainless steel cleaner after you scrub out and shine up the sink?

After listening to your posts, I've come to believe your husband sits on the Board of Directors at Massey..
