I learned a long time ago, things are the way they are and you probably can't change it so, try not to be too serious.

Thanks

Nope, don't think for a minute that Eastern Kentucky is done. We're just between jobs. And, the rest of the state don't need to be frettin, you'll benefit from it to.

Don't forget the Great American Balloon Race in Danville, and the Brass Band Festival. We may not be in eastern Kentucky, but we're close enough to hit it with a rock if we decide to chunk ya.

Close enough Albert. As you may know, I'm a hog kinda guy but, I may just have to visit the Fort Harrod Beef Fest. I might even get some brisket pointers.

We got any smokers around these parts? Low and slow is the way to go.

I think if they could focus more on tourism, like western NC, it could provide a shot in the arm to get other things moving.

Eastern KY has a lot of popular tourist destinations. Red River Gorge / Natural Bridge get 1 million visitors per year, Big South Fork Rec area (extends into TN) gets another million as does Cumberland Gap Nat'l Park. There are lots of other places that are popular with outdoor enthusiast like Breaks Park, Kingdom Come, Pine Mountain State Park, etc. But for whatever reason Kentucky really lacks resort towns that actually bring jobs. The areas around the Gorge and Big South Fork are almost devoid of motels and restaurants (I guess everyone camps for lodging?). There is no small town urban center in KY that is comparable to Nashville Indiana, Gatlinburg, Branson, etc. Those towns provide jobs in service. Look at what Indiana does in their very ordinary hilly section in the south: French Lick is home to a world class motel and casino, Santa Claus (yes that's a town name) has a theme park larger than Louisville, and Nashville IN draws visitors from all around. Part of it could be that rural KY is 90% places that ban alcohol sales and casinos are banned as well.

Eastern Kentucky and the world lost a great lady on June 1: Jean Ritchie of Viper in Perry County passed away peacefully at her home in Berea, Kentucky, at the age of 92.

Jean was a giant in the field of traditional music, with a beautiful crystalline voice which was perfect for the ballads and songs which were passed down through her family. She was a writer, songwriter, artist, scholar, and a wonderful advocate for the mountains.

Jean will be missed, but her legacy lives on...
