Riverview Reviews

1 review
I live in a coal town, which is very small community that is not very populated. We have a few business that supply our needs. You have to travel about an hour to get to a very populate area that has many restaurants and shopping opportunities. I love my community and home, but the coal industry is dying because of President Obama's "Green Energy". I am not against of going green but, it is killing out our community. I will have to move away from my hometown and my family, to get a better job, because everything is dying out. I do not see a future in this community because of the economic choices and the coal industry.
