Coal Mine Rally

Hundreds of Logan Countians rallied their support to keep a mine open.

People filled the Logan Middle School gymnasium Thursday night -- hoping to send a clear message that the Apogee Coal Mine is vital to their economy. The mine is near Yolyn.

A lawsuit pending in federal court could take the permit away from the mine, forcing it to shut down and putting more than 250 miners out of a job. A judge could make a ruling on the permit May 31st.
