Response to Scenic Overlook Of Black Mountain Delayed

The Coalfield article also noted this:

[Hands Across the Mountain] had a successful spring clean up on Black Mountain where roughly 30 volunteers committed about 100 man-hours and picked up 57 bags of litter. Fred Hall reminded members that the fall clean up was set for Oct. 26. In the first cleanup five years ago, Gothard noted, volunteers picked up 100 bags in the first mile. During the last cleanup, they could pick up 100 bags. "It's gotten better," she said.
