Coal and Natural Gas Pouring Millions Into the Area

From The Times-Reporter:

In 2011, coal mine employees in Tuscarawas County earned $11.3 million in wages and salary payments. In Carroll County, the number was $3.5 million; in Coshocton County, $4.8 million.
But all those numbers pale in comparison to the $22.1 million earned by miners in Harrison County last year.
