    I am really proud to be the WV Filmmaker of the Year. I am also proud of our new film, COALSTORIES, which premiered at the WVFF and will be on the COAL COUNTRY web site in a few weeks. Thanks, everyone.

    What happened to the article in which you said Gov. Manchin sunbbed Mari at the award ceremony? I thought Mr. Felton’s response was prcise and to the point.

    On another matter, it appears that I am angering the powers to be with my remarks. Two articles have recently been removed from this site rather than post my comments. I thought this site was above this type of behavior and promoted balanced discussions, however it appears that I was wrong in my assumption. Coal Country’s only concern is discussions with like minded people. One last question. How can you solve the worlds problems when one refuses to listen and discuss the opposing viewpoints.
