Hitting Home

>Your article “Destroying West Virginia” (Onleilove Alston, June 2010) tore at me. My husband and I spent a year of volunteering in east Kentucky, where some of the mountains of this beautiful part of the country are being destroyed by the coal companies. Mountain people love their homes passionately; for many, the land has been in their families since the American Revolution.

>But to make it worse, one of the companies responsible for some of the destruction was TECO, which supplies electricity to our part of Florida.
