'Coal Country' screening set

"Coal Country," a documentary that looks at the consequences of the coal-mining process known as mountaintop removal, will be screened at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Mountain Arts Community Center, 809 Kentucky Ave., on Signal Mountain.

The film gives an account of the impact mountaintop removal mining has had on local communities.

The free screening is being hosted by Mountain Stewards, a group dedicated to preserving the Southern Appalachian Mountains. It will be followed by a brief panel discussion with representatives from the film's production team, as well as members from organizations working to stop the practice.

Light refreshments will be available.
