PUNXSUTAWNEY — The coal industry has had its ups and downs over the years, but here in the Punxsutawney area, at one time coal was king.

Shirley Sharpe, Historical Society member, said coal mines originally were like the gold mines out west, where the owner would receive a deed, and the ground and the mineral rites would belong to him.
