Gov. Ernie Flecther's ratings now lower than President Bush's if you can believe that, just gave the eastern coal fields a slap in the face as Sen. Ray Jones of Pikeville put it.
Always look at what is happening here it is the poor and middle-class who always take a hit, Flecther's rebuttal to all this is funds should be useful elsewhere instead of Little League baseball?? These vetoes goes farther than baseball fields, and the coal-severance tax revenues were also generated by this part of the state, and this part tends to have a long memory.
