  •  Thank you for this! I am a UMWA pensioner... (0+ / 0-)

       ...and luckily quit Peabody years ago. My neighbors were not so fortunate. My friend's  father worked for Peabody until he retired, he's passed, but his 91 year old widow lives on, in an assisted care place. What is she to do? It's a bit tardy now to suggest a different field of work for her dead husband......

       Living near St. Louis, I have been priveleged to attend several of the UMWA-sponsored rallies there. As we marched on one of the rallies, another miner pointed out to me a statue about 300 or mebbe 400 feet from Peabody's big building, in the City Park. It is a statue of, you can't make this up, Pinocchio! The Peabody mascot, presumably.....

    Compost for a greener planet.............got piles?
