Coal industry can be helped in the Nov. 2 election

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — To the editor:

With Election Day just around the corner, I take this opportunity to urge all of the readers of The Sentinel Echo to get out and vote. And consider also that, if you flip a switch to turn the lights on, there is a good possibility that the electricity is produced from coal. And, you probably also realize a savings on it because it is produced from coal.

The coal industry is currently under attack from those in Washington who would want to stop all coal mining. We cannot let this happen; there is no alternative in place to take the place of coal.

This country needs coal and YOU need to help us vote for those who stand for coal. We have seen enough change. One person can make a difference and you may be the person who helps turn this thing around. See you at the polls.

John F. Enyart

Ashland, Ky.
