Thanks to Dennis Dimick of National Geographic for the photo of the mountaintop removal site near Kayford, W.Va., and to the Gazette’s Brenda Pinnell for designing the masthead.
The coal miner pictured on the masthead is Bud Morris, whose death in December 2005 was part of a Gazette examination of coal-mine safety published after the Sago Mine disaster in 2006. Special thanks to his widow, Stella Morris, for permission to use this family photo.
