    Don't know if any of you heard about the miners that are trapped. 13 miners haven't been heard from since 6:30 AM yesterday morning. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. It is the Sago Mine, in Upshur county.

    Jen, Judy and I have been following this story very closely and these miners and their families have been and will continue to be in our prayers. May God comfort and keep them all and may the miners be found alive and well soon. Our hearts go out to them all.

    How are these mining companies allowed to even open their doors another day after all the safety infractions are disreguarded ? They should arrest the executives and charge them with negligent homicide . Money can never replace a life lost,but I pray that the survivors of these miners get compensated for the mines negligence for valuing the lives of their workers.

    They finally confirmed that all the miners except Randal McCloy lost their lives after the announcement that they were found alive.The Governor jumped the gun and had everyones hopes up.This is a tragedy with no excuses.I pray for those left to carry the burden of their deaths.

    Governer Manchin was told by the families themselves that the men were alive...someone else told the families the news. On a side note, the governer himself lost an uncle in the worst mine disaster in WV history back in the sixties. 70+ men lost their lives at that time.

    The way i heard it was someone overheard the command center communicating that they had found the miners and that they were checking vital signs and the rumor got started that they were alive. It is a sad and stressful time for the families. My heart and prayers go out to all of them.
