"Men, fightwomen, boys and girls - each possessing the hardy individualism and sterling qualities necessary to a pioneer spirit - crossed the rugged Appalachian mountains to  disease, misfortune, and wild animals.
 When they reached the hunting ground favored by the Indians - a land of legend - they liked it."
-Joyce Wilson, This was Yesterday: A Romantic History of Owsley County

Like our first settlers, we still have that pioneer spirit. And today, we are using those same qualities to make strides in progress from agriculture to technology and beyond.
Together we can pioneer the 21st Century!
