"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!
