Include Prenter among nice towns
In reference to the June letter about nice coal mining towns, yes there were. Prenter was one of them. Back in the 1950s and '60s Prenter was a real nice clean coal mining town.
We had all the conveniences you would want or need, such as the company store, soda fountain, theater, barber shop, post office, good school, nice large swimming pool, service station and two nice boarding houses for the miners who could not find a house to rent, because at that time all houses in Prenter were already rented.
There were white painted fences from one end of the town to the other end. All the houses were kept up. There were no junk cars and no animal pens.
