United For Coal Prayer Chain Set

{Pikeville, Kentucky}...United for Coal, a group co-founded by Jesse Salyer, Jr. and Allen Gibson, is planning an event to help raise awareness for the coal industry. Organizers are asking people to line U.S. 23 on October 13th to show support for the industry they say feeds the entire region. Organizers say they hope to see 50,000 people within Pikeville and at least 200,000 people across the entire event. The center will be in Pikeville and extend North and South along U.S. 23. It will also extend North along U.S. 119. Gibson says it is going to be the longest prayer chain ever known in the history of Kentucky.
