Still looking for coal miners

Today's Richmond paper has this story describing the mad rush by employers in the coal business to recruit people to work while the getting is good.

The article says, in part:

"Mike Quillen, Alpha Natural Resources' president and CEO, guessed his company would hire roughly 600 miners over the next three years, about half of them to work in new mines and the rest to replace retirees."

Yesterday, the paper ran this article titled "At last - coal is back."
