  1. Charles Eddie Holbrook says:

    I am Charles Eddie Holbrook. I was born in Holden hospital in 1948. I grew up in Holden 22 and attended grade school. My father worked in the mine but he was off shift when it exploded in 1960. My grandmother was Parlle Mullins and my grandfather was Roy Browning. Both from Harts Creek. My mother was Mary Lou Browning Holbrook and my father was Sherman Holbrook. I attended 7th grade at Holden Junior High. My parents moved to Utah in search of work. There were uranium mines there and work was plentiful? We never lived in West Virginia again.

    Just read Deanna Bayer’s comment and it brought back memories of that fateful day when I lost my father, Bertie Horvath. You never know when you will see a loved one for the last tome. Every moment with friends and family are all so precious.

  4. John Thacker says:

    My name is John Thacker, a native of Kenova WV. I worked at Channel 13 in Huntington in the mid-60’s and hosted the one hour “Let’s Dance” dance party show on Saturday afternoons and known as “Johnny T.” I have such fond memories of the people in Logan, Man and Accoville, where I would run sock hops in the school gyms on Saturday nights. I was treated so well by all the folks involved in these fund raising events. Although their names have faded over the years, if any of you read this, I want you to know I still carry one of those $2 bills you paid me with after the shows. I was always booked on “mine payday weekends,” when those TWOs were plentifully circulating. I live in Florida now and I’m semi-retired. Just want all to know, I’ll never forget you.
