Sounds like some good ideas to me except the industry idea. I hate to sound pessimistic and negative but I think I am realistic about the issue. I just don't think you are going to get any real, stand-on-their-own industries of any quality in Harlan (at least any time soon.) I may be wrong and I hope I am, but I just don't see it happening. I don't think the infrastructure is there or it is too neglected to support industry. I think our college is a diamond in the rough and could be easily built upon and supported to where it is a thriving four year institution (totally in the county).
I previously floated the idea of keeping the 3 high schools open and using the 50 million to turn Southeast into a 4 year university. Let's just say it wasn't popular with many.
The county, or at least the city needs to be wet. If we managed to vote the entire county wet we would need a distribution center which would mean jobs. We had a meeting once to organize a petition to make the county wet. Who showed up? GFunk, Superbeast, StillStanding, Jennifer Mcdaniels, and Big Bettie.
We need a CJE who is 100% on board with the Blue Grass Challenge Academy. Ralph Souyleret (Delzina's Brother) Has worked very hard to get the academy here in Harlan. He is also the person who managed to get us our own National Guard Armory, and the SEKRI factory in Cumberland. The Academy would be helpful to our youth, as well as bringing jobs to the community. They will need teachers, cooks, janitors, ect, ect, ect. The same type of employees that a typical school needs.

Mr. Souyleret also made it possible for us to have the Mountain Warriors.

IMO, no. Southeast already has a beautiful campus/facilities and I think they have some room to expand. WHy would you want to reinvent the wheel? Cumberland is fairly centrally located with respect to the region. I would imagine you would even get quite a few people from neighboring VA coming to the college. I think it would draw from Perry, Leslie, Letcher, the rest of eastern KY and eventually beyond the borders of our state and region.
Question is, I wonder if the administration at the college would be on board for such an expansion?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.............
Those are some great idea's by GFunk. I have only heard from one politician who has floated his idea's to the public and that's Jonathan Pope. He is young enough to not be set in his ways, and thinks outside of the box. This is what we had with Marvin J, and Russell.

The Jailer does the best he can with what he has or I should say with what the County gives him to work with.Maybe he should take Money out of his own pocket and use it at the Jail ?

Speaking from experience, the parking problem downtown is why nothing can do good down there. Sorry, call me lazy or whatever, but lugging two kids out of the truck and walking half a mile to get to a store.. Not worth it!

I kind of think when I passed that garbage the next trip up the road, I would feel a little ashamed of myself for doing that. But.....NO......probably didn't even enter their minds.

One of my pet peeves after Christmas is seeing a Christmas tree thrown out on the side of the road. How long would it take to just set it on fire and burn it? Better yet I think the fish and game would like it to put it in the lake. I heard that somewhere. Getting back on topic, I am beginning to think some of the people in Harlan County and other counties doesn't want it to change for the better.

That's what we did they will pick ur tree up for u. That's the only way I would get a cut tree was to be able to recycle it later.
