Harlan's number one problem is everyone complains about what they don't have and don't even know what they do have right out their back door. I bet if y'all spend the time an effort you spent on whining on finding your strengths and assets, Harlan County would be the best damned county in Kentucky.
Lakes are contaminated, river is contaminated, can't eat the fist, nowhere to swim. There is no outdoor recreation, other than the ATV park. If you want to swim in the lake and get Hepatitis A from all the fecal matter, then be my guest, cause you can rest assure that its there. Until the county steps up and does their job , with all the straight pipes, we will continue to have these levels of contamination. We are not complaining about what we DON"T have...its what we DO HAVE thats is the problem. There should be places to go and things to do for our youth, and there is nothing left.
