The Wheeling Alternative

Which side are you on, Intelligencer?

The morning "newspaper" lectures the UMW

The lead Intelligencer editorial, "Planning Future for Miners," takes the United Mine Workers to task for having endorsed Obama in 2008. Apparently the president is to blame for all the jobs that have been lost in the coal industry.

"Intelligencer Deemed Historic" proclaims the Intelligencer front page

And the editorial page agrees!

We were due. Long overdue. It was early April when the Intelligencer last asserted how immensely important Wheeling's two "newspapers" are to the Ohio Valley.

Reading the Sunday "newspaper"

A surprising story on the front page: "Research Links Living Near Fracking to Illness"

In the year and a half that I have been doing this blog, I have never seen a story on the front page that connects fracking with health problems. I've noted on my blogs during that period the numerous studies that dealt with the . . .

Coal moments from around the Web

Protest songs are dangerous (and threatening to coal companies)

From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

Peabody Energy Corp. wants a judge to strike lyrics of a strip-mining protest song from a federal lawsuit filed by environmental activists who claim they were jailed for demonstrating at a company shareholders meeting. . . . . .
