you are obviously making a profit or you would not be defending this issue. The only people that defend tourism are the ones that are making a profit. Coal trucks for example are bothersome. They are slow, they spill coal along our roads, and are literally crushing our highways. We tolerate the negatives of coal production because it sustains our families. Why tolerate a supposed industry that has more problems than profits? Tourism has not helped much at all. Bailey's Creek is cleaner, but only in the part designated a park. The rest still looks the same. The road has fallen off, but who cares, the visitors drive 4x4's anyway. Looking at the Verda "Event Field" in the beginning, I admit, I had hope, but now, judging by the turnouts in the last two years, I'd say more is spent to prepare for these events than is actually made. Wake up folks! It's not going to work. Just travel up I-75 and ask Rockcastle county. I'm just another poor white boy from the hills, but I think we can make more saving pop cans as a county than we can with tourism.
