There is a place...
There is a place in America where people gather not once,
but twice each year to exchange political ideas, explore cultural heritage,
and socailize at fairs that have a combined history of 180 years.
There is a place in America where an authentic general mercantile is as crowded
today as it was a century ago, where unique shops line a historic town square,
and where restaurants serve food from home-style to high end.
There is a place in America where the amnenities of first class resorts offering
gaming, golf, and relaxation are only rivaled by the splendor of rural lakes
and forests that tender a bounty for outdoor enthusiasts.
There is a place in America where dark episodes of our county's history have
unfolded to produce a place of deep and profound courage.
There is a place in America where words like hope, family and redemption are more than expressions,
they are a way of living.
