CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. -- Coal mining is very much a strong thread in the life of country music singer Kathy Mattea. The Kanawha County, W.Va., native's grandfathers were miners, her mother worked for the United Mine Workers and her brother still works in the coal industry. Jefferson County's historic ties to one of the coal industry's most tumultuous times in state mining history provided a strand for the singer's visit Friday to the county's old jail in Charles Town. During a two-hour stop between shows in Morristown, N.J., and Orkney Springs, Va., Mattea toured the recently restored living quarters of the county jailer and the adjoining cell block, both of which have been converted for state circuit and family court.
