Miners job losses
Some people are making statements about the coal miners who lost their jobs this week and blowing it off like it isn’t anything big because they don’t work in or support coal. Some people are happy about what’s happening!
Please take a moment to think about it like this:
• 750 miners lost their jobs so that’s 750 families that will have less money to buy groceries — do you work at a grocery store or in the food industry?
• 750 families will not have money to buy unnecessary items at department stores — do you work at one of those?
• 750 families who won’t be driving or traveling as much — do you work at a gas station? 750 families who will be cutting back on TV, internet and phone expenses — do you work with any of these?
• 750 less families going to the doctor when they need to and not getting prescriptions filled — do you work at a pharmacy, hospital, or clinic?
• 750 families who won’t be cashing checks at the bank or paying their loan payments — do you work at a bank?
• 750 families who won’t have money for haircuts, tanning visits and nail appointments — do you work at any of those places?
• 750 families who will cut back on eating out — do you work at a restaurant?
• Some of these 750 families will have to move away from the area so local school enrollment numbers will drop that means we will need less teachers, bus drivers, cooks, and aides — do you work in the school system?
The list of things could go on and on.
It’s not only the miners and their families that will suffer this loss. Eventually it will hit your home too.
Statistics proves that for every one coal miner who loses their job seven non-coal families will suffer the loss as well. Now is the time to pray for these families and lift them up — not kick them when they are down.
Copied from a friend, but I support our miners 100 percent! Just saying … who will be next — you?
I did not write it I found it and thought everyone should read it.
School sign needed
How can we get a school sign put up in Justice Avenue for the safety of our children?
When the big trucks — local or out of town — come thru here they will not obey the speed limit of 35 mph. For some reason they can speed and get away with it, but citizen will be pulled over.
We have a school here and a lot of driveways that are right on the street. If you slow down to turn into your driveway the truckers blow at you like you are intruding on the space.
It is very dangerous on this roadway.
Outta Logan Co.
I finally got out of Logan County. I was just sick and tired of the trash, the dilapidated abandoned, burned out homes that littered Logan County and the stench from overflowing septic tanks.
When will Logan County ever join the 21st century? Why can’t the litter laws be enforced? Why can’t owners be forced to either fix their property or demolish it? Why is there no sewer system in place throughout the county? I’ll tell you why; there has never been a proactive county government in Logan County, it has always been a “good ole boy” government … the same people or one of their cronies that keep getting elected. Wake up Logan County! Get some different people in there that knows what to do.
As for me, I will never move back there and I don’t blame anyone that leaves that filthy disgusting place.
I think it is wonderful that the street in Chapmanville is getting paved, but they should have fixed the water leak first.
That nice street in front of Town and Country has water seeping up thru it. It will be such a waste for them to have to tear up the street again to fix the water leak.
