well some may know i went back to work a few onths ago for premium coal at their #10 mine (a doghole!), when i got that job i was trying to get the job at #5 mine which i help start when i worked for national coal, but they didnt have any openings there, so i took what i could get. about 2 weeks ago they transfered me to #5, it seems the section mech they had on the second shift had them down for a whole shift due to a cable issue... long story short i was able to get to the mine i wanted to begin with shaving almost 40 min off of my commute, plus i got away form the 21sc's my current section has long airdox crawlers, im still on second shift but MUCH happier being at my home mine with my equiptment.

oh, and premium isnt that bad of a company to work for, they have a guy from WV running things for them named dennis cook. i had heared nitemares about this guy, but he seems cool to me... as long as everyone does their job they dont have anything to worry about with him.
