HAZARD, Ky. (AP) -- About 90 jobs are being lost in the eastern Kentucky coalfields.

TECO Coal Corporation is cutting back production and shedding jobs.

Company personnel director Paul Matney says no mines are closing, but manpower and staffing is being trimmed to match reduced production from the mines.

Matney said the layoffs are at several locations and are the result of economic conditions in the coal market.
