The grassroots support group, Friends and Families of Coal Miners, based in Boone and Logan counties, hosted its second successful rally this past Tuesday in Putnam County,  Partnering with the Citizens for Coal, Logan Coal Vendors Association, Friends of Coal and The COALition for Romney, the event drew an estimated 100 people to the Old Winfield Courthouse. Attendees heard from a variety of speakers about the Obama War on Coal and its impact on the people of our region.  Several local news affiliates had crews on hand for the event.

The group held an event earlier this month in Madison that drew well over 200 people to the Madison Civic Center and plans additional events in Logan, Lincoln and other counties over the next two months. For more information, check out the groups’ Facebook pages at:
