It was with great interest I read the story about the Bear Creek Smith Mine disaster (Feb. 27). It was very interesting and written well. A few years ago, I read a book about this very topic. It was called “Goodbye Wifes & Daughters,” by Susan Kushner Resnick. It was a very good nonfiction book. I would recommend it for those interested in this subject.
I, too, am very sorry for the loss of the Faith & Values section in Saturday's paper. Also, I miss the local recipes and comments from other housewives.
