Have you been to Lebanon lately? The people there made a commitment to being ready for opportunity when it knocks. If you go there talk to Chis Hamilton at the Tourism Office - he'll be glad to give you a tour.

Too many citizens of Adair County have made it aboundantly clear that they don't want change.

Their short sightness is costing our community its future.

Life is choices - If Adair County chooses not to change and grow we have to live with it. - Barbara Armitage
Agreed: Lebanon, KY is a fabulous resource for all the communities around it. We're so fortunate that they are farsighted enough to share what they have learned.Also: It isn't timid leadership we have here. Well, a little, but - It's timid citizenry. When the ground swell is big enough, the leadership will rise up and announce, "There go our followers, we must hasten to lead them." But until there's a tipping point - from the ground up - it ain't gonna happen, is it? -EW
