Very typical. No one wants anything positive to come from southern West Virginia. They don't want it filmed at a small operation in McDowell county but I'm sure they'd be happy as Hell and open their arms wide if they wanted to film at a mines close to Charleston or any other mines north of Beckley.
gonna watch it

You"re right on target with that! Where is westchester, btw? I hope the coalminers get paid too for being on-camera.

Westchester is a hollow just past Big Sandy. Who doesn't want them to film there?

I think "yup" is commenting on the "regulators worry that sending camera crews into underground mines could lead to disaster"-- his view is that the state would prefer all attention focussed on anyplace other than McDowell. I personally hope it leads to profit for the locals.

They may be afraid of the image portrayed by a small mining operation in southern WV.

But if they move it up north a bit..........
