Despite all of the negativity that sometimes is associated with Logan County, I can honestly say I’m proud to have been born and raised in what once was nothing more than an Appalachian wilderness.

Yes, we’ve got a long history of political corruption and we have legends that can be identified with the Hatfield and McCoy feud, as well as the Battle of Blair Mountain. There have many murders, and hundreds of accidents and deaths related to the dangerous work of mining coal, such as the Buffalo Creek flood and the 22 Holden mine catastrophe, and yet, despite all of that, I always feel good when I reflect upon some of the accomplishments of folks who once called Logan County their home.
