Thousands Show Support For Coal

{Kentucky}...Thousands of people gathered Saturday at the Stop the War on Coal Rally held at the Knott County Sportsplex. U.S. Senator Rand Paul said he believes coal is one of our great natural resources, and we ought to be proud of having coal in Kentucky and all of the jobs it provides. Todd P'Pool, who is running for Kentucky Attorney General, told the crowd that, for four generations, Kentucky coal put food on his family's table. Country music singer Stella Parton, who has an album titled American Coal, said the only way she knows to fight back as an American and Appalachian child is to use her music to get the message out.
