    Southern WV is here!!!!!!

    Have you ever been to Southern WV?????I think
    not!!!!! If you had, then you would know that all of our
    roads are not curvy and bumpy, that all of our
    employment does not come from coal mines, and we are not
    hippies. Also, with a little research you would know that
    Matewan Bank has been in existance for more than eighty
    years. Matewan Banks has grown rapidly in the last ten
    years and holds a considerable market share.

    • You asked "Have you ever been to Southern WV"?
      Well, perhaps you will read all my posts and decide for
      yourself.

      You say "....all of our roads are not curvy and
      bumpy". That's true, not ALL of them are. But, they are
      at Red Jacket and some other places. Heck....they
      are even curvy and bumpy in some places in Wyoming.
      It's a function of the terrain, not of the
      populace.

      You say "....all of our employment does not come from
      coal mines". That's true, not ALL of it. But, the
      public information on file with the government seems to
      indicate that the economy in Matewan's core market area IS
      dependent on the coal mining industry. [As an aside, it
      also indicates that employment in the mines has
      declined substantially in recent years.]

      You say
      "....we are not hippies." I couldn't agree with you
      more.

      I do not doubt the existence of Matewan in its
      market. I have been making queries about the
      MARKET.

      Good luck. I like your spunk.
