About the Cover

Sorry this monthly item is late in arriving.  Other things got in the way.

This is a shot of the relatively new miners memorial in Blakely.

Mining is a significant part of our past.  Miners deserve the recognition.  They helped build the area.  It was horribly hard and dangerous work, and the miners were taken advantage of my managers.
The mine is flanked by the names of the workers, and it's a very nice touch.

Before I close, take note of the gravel to the rear of the monument.  It's coal!  A great touch.  They did this one right.
