"Weeks since their company Blackshaw had suddenly without warning shattered the mines declared bankruptcy and because they had because so much turmoil in the town of people were having trouble making your car payments and mortgage payments and the bank accounts have been frozen there's a lot of angst and and in the in the county and several of the miners had noticed that there was a train loaded with cold dead minds from clover like number three which is out near Cumberland Kentucky which is a historic sea of Appalachian coal mining fields was pulling out of one of the mines and so they gathered a small handful of man and and block to train and were able to stop that and it's just really grown since then so they stopped the the strain for moving that was the call that they mind they hadn't been paid this train was going out to make a million dollars for the bankrupt companies so they thought well we'll just stop it from going anywhere that's exactly right a big figure this is called it we mind and and if you go with a couple million dollars and and we're not allowed to strain out and until we're paid and I think it really it really caught fire because it tapped into a lot of built up frustration around the long decline as of coal in eastern Kentucky and Appalachian coal fields there a lot of the insecurity around company bankruptcies and and layoffs and yeah this is a in the area of the country that has a history of of some pretty pitched battles between coal miners and and coal companies dating back to the nineteen thirty the bloody Harlan wars of the thirteenth and the the strike and in the seventies that was chronicled in the documentary Harlan county USA and they've also set up a road side community it's just outside of town Cumberland right along the tracks other other miners mccamly started showing up tents appears some that were donated by local funeral homes food was brought by restaurants and various townsfolk their pizza boxes stacked up and Kitty pool filled with drinks and a lot to share some people work at age ten others were sleeping in the truck overnight a kitchen that was set up so the train is not there any longer but they are where is the train the engines were let through because CSX the the company that actually owns the train and I made the case to the minors the safe with but the strain cards out they're knocking they'll deliver coal from other monster that could put other people out of work so they agreed to that they would leave the actual coal which is valued at about a million dollars on the tracks and that they would let the engine Sir which they did this is first line and we're talking with Chris scanning of the Louisville courier journal about the miners blockade the coal miners blockade in Harlan county Kentucky so there have been some legal maneuvers in bankruptcy court so what are the chances that they're going to get their million dollars and even if they get that is that going to be enough to compensate them they do hope to get most of what they're owed at this point their attorney was is representing them in in bankruptcy proceedings out of West Virginia and recently the miners supported a couple buses and and travel to the court hearings wearing wearing yellow tee shirts and a fitting in with all these lawyers to sort of make their case now and it came out eventually that copper glow which is the Tennessee based mining company agreed to by the mines and the president has told me that the company did plan to reopen the mines employs many miners as possible and as part of that deal they would get a million dollars over time toward the roughly two point five million they're owed meantime their attorneys are going to fight in bankruptcy court to get the rest of the money has all the creditors or the scramble for sure their share what's left of of the actual yeah I think I read one of your stories that there is about twice as many bills outstanding as there are assets left so they're going to have to fight with the other creditors in Kentucky workers are considered to have a secure claims along with some of the other creditors so they do have a fairly decent shot I think it's definitely true that their their protest I put a lot of pressure on the bankruptcy court and and the buyers of these assets to to make sure they get paid it seems romantic that these people came together it seems pretty organically to take this action but is that the reality of it or is this a situation where they may win the battle but in the long run things may or may not be better for them yeah that's that's a really good question I mean I think for a lot of these folks is it really touched a nerve in the guys are used to lay out use the consolidation than buyouts but this particular bankruptcy affected more than a quarter of the county minors and all the fallout from that has kind of led to this pretty powerful reckoning among the whole families that for years and years have been wondering well when do we get out Cole you know the markets declining yeah how long do we stay and so a lot of people are considering the training the local community colleges is flooded with minors you said on I'm finally done other people are moving to Alabama places where there's more stay you're cold jobs where it's cheaper to to extract the coal but still more say there they were born and raised as coal miners in Kentucky and they're they're going to stick with it for as long as they can so how long are they going to stay at the railroad track they say they want to stay until they get paid now whether that means the minds reopen and they get the kind of the first installment or they just go ahead and go back to work that's kind of not not known at this point but I think they're just kind of wanting to stay there and keep the pressure on until until something happens most of mine has new owners why is it not in operation they are currently I'm trying to finalize all the purchases and they have to assess the the mine sites and everything I I did ask if they knew of the time line when when the mind you know open and they just are saying as soon as possible so they that's not really known at this point we'll make sure that you stay in touch and let us know how this turns out absolutely thanks for having me on we've been talking with Chris scanning of the Louisville courier journal this morning and thanks for being with us on.
