PETTUS, W.Va. (AP) - A West Virginia church used its Sunday service to pay tribute to the 29 people killed in last week's mine explosion, and to thank all those who make their living in the mines.

A pair of tall black boots and a lunch pail sat near the altar at the New Life Assembly church, where the pastor is a miner who lost friends in the disaster.
