GREENVILLE, KY - The Tennessee Valley Authority is donating $5,000 for a coal miner memorial in western Kentucky. 

The project will be located at the Muhlenberg County Courthouse and include the names of miners who lost their lives working in the area. 

TVA operates a coal burning power plant, Paradise Fossil Plant, on the Green River in the county. It burns 20,000 tons of coal a day. 

Muhlenberg County Judge-Executive Rick Newman says the Paradise Plant keeps the mining industry going in the area. 

The memorial will have brass statues and a plaque with the names of the miners.
