On This Day in 1907
At 10:20 am., explosions occurred at the No. 6 and No. 8 mines at Monongah, West Virginia. The explosions ripped through the mines at 10:28 a.m., causing the earth to shake as far as eight miles away, shattering buildings and pavements, hurling people and horses violently to the ground, and knocking streetcars off the rails. Three-hundred and sixty-two men and boys died. It remains the worst mine disaster in U.S. history. Over 3,200 miners were killed on the job in U.S. mines in 1907 because mining companies persistently disregarded recognized safety practices.

2017 Spring Golf Outing
Updated On: Jun 28, 2017

Congratulations to Adam Davis, Stewart Meek, David Daniels, and Charlton Plummer (Piedmont Airlines) for their first place win in the Local's bi-annual golf event held Saturday, June 24th, at the Queenstown Harbor Golf Course in Queenstown, Md.

Teams teed off at 8:30 a.m. in a modified shotgun start format, finishing the 18-hole course at the same time in about six hours. The rain cleared out and warm sun plus cold beverages made for a perfect day on the course. Libations and lunch under the club's shaded outdoor pavilion topped off the day.
