By Jenny Brundin

Huntington, UT – It has been a long 10 days for the people in coal mining towns near Crandall Canyon, Utah .where six miners are trapped underground. KUER's Jenny Brundin has been talking to people in these close-knit communities. With each passing day, residents are struggling to stay optimistic. But they say even if there's the slimmest chance the men are alive .prayer, personality, and the humor intrinsic to the mining culture will be crucial to their survival.
