MCDOWELL COUNTY — Retired teacher Lori Bishop has lived in Keystone all her life. She remembered when the coal mine tipple seen from her front porch in the once booming town ran 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“That was a different time, to be sure,” Bishop said. “A lot of things have changed, but some of those changes took too long to come, in my opinion.”
