In a project to help laid off coal miners in Harlan County, Harlan 20/20 partnered with the Goose Creek Candle Company to help the unemployed miners keep their lights on. The candles, available in three scents, are black and the label was designed by Harlan 20/20. The first shipment has sold out and a second shipment is expected Tuesday. They may be purchased for $20 at the Harlan Center, Southern Wholesale, Sheer Inspirations, all of Harlan and Dream Furniture, of Middlesboro. Partnering with Harlan County Community Action Agency and the local employment office, Harlan 20/20 is donating 100 percent of the profit to this project. Pictured is Alpha Natural Resources Superintendent Rick Gross, right, of Catrons Creek, who purchased seven candles from Southern Wholesale sales clerk Jim Johnson.
