Hi Gary, I once knew a Gary Smith from around the Dayton Mall area. When we were young, we would race our cars at KillKare Raceway. lol
I was born in Southern Kentucky, and both sides of the family have grave yards on two mountains there. I went up and marked off my resting place years ago and keep a check on the area with google earth. They have started changing road names, and have mined the mountains till I can hardly recognize the area now. It's sad to say the least. Thanks for sharing. btw, wasn't there a movie made about this coal mine fire?
Ahhhh my sweet Kentucky home - mordorf

World coal consumption was about 7.25 billion tonnes in 2010 The price of coal increased from around $30.00 per short ton in 2000 to around $150.00 per short ton as of September 2008. In early 2015, it was trading near $56/ton.
