Elkhorn City would gain from more water from dam

As I read that columnist Larry Webster calls Elkhorn City the most beautiful town in the Eastern United States, I am troubled. I believe Elkhorn City certainly has that potential, as it is surrounded by one of the most beautiful forested gorges in North America. However, when I drive through the town I see burned-out houses, empty businesses and closed stores that tried, but failed, to prosper in this stunning location.

Op-Ed

Beauty, check. Grandeur, check. For tourism dollars, just add water.

I have been thinking about this. First, I am as Kentuckian as you can get with grandparents and their grandparents and beyond from all over the state, east to west. Second, I like Larry Webster, personally, and in addition to being a good lawyer, I think he is colorful, a good historian and a heck of a musician.
