Join Charlotte View for an exclusive, interview with scriptwritter and crew members of critically acclaimed, award-winning movie "Moving Mountains," based on the true story of Patricia Bragg, who grew up in Mooresville, NC. The movie tells the story of Trish Bragg of Pie, WV in Mingo County, as she and her friends struggled for safe drinking water after a deep mine destroyed their wells. A story of faith, hope and perseverance that will stay with you long after the movie ends. Based on the book, "Moving Mountains," written by Penny Loeb. This film-festival favorite is being shown at AmStar 14 in Mooresville, NC on October 6th 2014
In 1994, Trish Bragg was a coal miner's wife, struggling to get by. Then a vast deep mine destroyed her neighbors' water wells. Guided by her strong faith, she and her friends stood up to a billion-dollar coal company and government bureaucracy. This movie is the struggle of a people, desperately battling to keep their way of life , their lands, and their families and homes intact. A group of citizens battle to change a mind set that has remained in Appalachia for many years. “One simply does not fight the coal mining company". These companies are powerful entities with finances, machinery, and backing of our government; but fight back we did! In the end, they made history.
During this interview, Penny Loeb, T Paige Dalporto, Paul C Brown, Austin Jetton and Patricia Bragg will talk about their journey of discovery, lucky breaks, frustrating obstacles, collaboration, fear of failure, etc

CanAm Coal (COE.V or COECF) believes in the long term viability of coal as a fuel source and that demand will grow going forward. CanAm Coal had a record year in 2012 producing over 455,000 tons of coal in mining friendly Alabama. This is almost a ten fold increase from 2010 demonstrating significant production growth. Over the next three years CanAm's goal is to possibly produce 2-3 million tons of coal. The company is developing three new mines and has attracted a significant financial institution to fund the operations. The company is well positioned for 2013 after investing a significant amount into opening up three new mines in 2012. CanAm is a surface miner which does not have as many risks as underground mining. CanAm is the recipient of the "Sentinels of Safety" Award commending safe and reliable operations. CanAm has focussed on building reserves and producing the higher quality cleaner coals, lower in sulphur, ash, mercury and arsenic. New EPA regulations could drive demand and premium pricing for CanAm's cleaner coals. The company already has 85-100% of 2013 production sold out and close to 650-750k tons for 2014. This provides investors with highly probable cash flow and earnings stability. The company could eventually generate a significant amount of free cash flow to make further accretive acquisitions. CanAm's quality coals are already sold out for 2013 as they meet the new EPA standards. The company is deeply discounted with a market cap that is less than one times EBITDA and trading near a three year low. Most of their peers trade three or four times that value and CanAm is considerably undervalued in the sector. The mines are run by 30 year industry veterans that has put their own money on the table. Management owns just over 25%.

Comstock Mining (LODE) should produce close to 40k ounces of gold equivalent this year in the historic and prolific Comstock District. LODE just announced a new lower cost $5 million revolving credit facility in order to assist with the increase in production and expansion of their Lucerne Mine. Capital will be used to drill the east side of the Lucerne resource. LODE's ability to exceed production guidance in 2013 and their clear growth profile has allowed them to receive more favorable financing terms. Comstock also announced recently the restructuring of debt and royalty obligations which eliminated $2 million worth of debt and royalties. It is also important to remember that Comstock Mining recently secured over 300 acres of private land which will allow valuable growth opportunities. The local community is widely supportive of the company as evidenced by the unanimous approval of Lyon County Board of Commissioners to approve zoning changes on certain mining claims. LODE recently commenced a district wide plan to increase the resources and reserves. The goal is to produce expanded mine plans that include the Lucerne, Spring Valley and Dayton Resource. Investors should realize this is an historic district largely untouched by modern exploration programs. There is the potential for significant growth in 2014 and beyond.

Canam Coal (COE.V or COECF) just came out with their second quarter numbers on Friday. The company has transitioned to a steady state of production which should produce 60 to 80k tons of coal on a monthly basis going into the second half of 2013. The balance sheet is improving with operating cash flow five times better than the prior year. Free cash flow is turning positive from negative and should increase over the second half of 2013 into 2014. All of Canam's new coal mines have opened and are operating near planned efficiency. This past July was a record month of production as it sold 67,500 tons of coal. According to the company, they can sustain this rate for the foreseeable future. No new equipment is needed in the near term which reduces expenditures. All of CanAm's 2013 production is sold out and a majority of 2014 production has been sold as off-take. This may be due to CanAm's low sulfur and ash coal profile which receive premium pricing. I expect CanAm to generate increasing free cash flow over the coming months and to gain recognition by the investment community.

There is a lot of buzz about renewable energy these days. Some of it is about what re/energy advocates over the past 30 years have defined it as ie, solar, wind, water and biofuels from cellulose. Yet we are also hearing some 'official' definitions of renewable energy that expande the types of energy to ones that have not been traditionally considered renewable. The energies that are most often included in this way are nuclear energy and natural gas. I guess they finally gave up on 'clean coal'... Anyway, what are the implications of this? Are they economic? Are we being invited to go in a circle again and end up with the same players and the same problems... We welcome your input.

FRONTLINE: "Send me" , sharing out of ISAIAH 6. Friday @ 6 pm PT or 9 EST
Isaiah Called to Be a Prophet
6 In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. 2 Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3 And one cried to another and said:
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;
The whole earth is full of His glory!”
4 And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke.
5 So I said:
“Woe is me, for I am undone!
Because I am a man of unclean lips,
And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips;
For my eyes have seen the King,
The Lord of hosts.”
6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar. 7 And he touched my mouth with it, and said:
“Behold, this has touched your lips;
Your iniquity is taken away,
And your sin purged.”
8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying:
“Whom shall I send,
And who will go for Us?”
Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

This week on One Cell One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy welcomes guest Dane Wigington, lead researcher for geoengineeringwatch.org, to discuss the growing problem of – naturally – Geoengineering.
While we tend to think of this area as being mostly related to mining, geoengineering to Dane covers a variety of topics, all of which he hopes to discuss on the show. From the mysterious to the mundane, geoengineering is having a profound impact on our lives in ways clear as say and others not so obvious.
With an extensive background in solar energy, Dane is a former employee of Bechtel Power Corp. and was a licensed contractor in California and Arizona. His personal residence was featured in a cover article on the world’s largest renewable energy magazine, Home Power. He owns a 1,600-acre “wildlife preserve” next to Lake Shasta in northern California. Dane focused his efforts and energy on the geoengineering issue when he began to lose very significant amounts of solar uptake due to ever-increasing “solar obscuration” caused from aircraft spraying. He also noted significant decline in forest health and began testing and research into the geoengineering issue about a decade ago.
The holidays are one time of the year when you really want to feel your best. But they're also a minefield of health woes, from cold and flu bugs to party hangovers.
Beyond getting the flu vaccine, there's a lot you can do to help your body weather the season. This is how to keep healthy—and merry—as you shop, travel, and celebrate.
Think perky thoughts
On those days when you barely have time to breathe, recall something that made you happy and you can get a boost.
Smell the shower gel
The act of savoring—mining pleasant moments for their joy—is a proven happiness booster. In one study published in The Journal of Positive Psychology, 101 men and women kept diaries for a month, recording positive activities they participated in and how much they did or didn't savor them. Those who tended to enjoy a good thing—and share their delight with others—maintained high levels of happiness no matter what the day brought, whereas nonappreciators needed positive events to get into a good mood.
