    My family members once live in Centralia, A family of 9! My grand father was a coal miner, he had a accident, lost his arm and was work terminated. The family departed for Phila. by train. My father was born in 1903 one block from a coal mine in a local house. The area was in front of the Orthodox Greek/Russian Church. My last visit to Centralia was in 1994.

    The thought of the waste of fuel and contribution to climate change makes me sad.
