I have found myself doing a fair amount of research in recent days after attending last week’s Corbin Rotary Club meeting at David’s Steakhouse. The special guest speakers were Debbie Moses, and Timm and Theresa Martin, who were there to speak about the ongoing efforts to convince the U.S. Forest Service not to clearcut a roughly 5,000-acre piece of land that is located in the Jellico Mountains section of the Daniel Boone National Forest.
“As part of our citizens group, we wanted to present an alternative,” [Timm] Martin said. “We want to see more recreation, and less clearcutting in the Jellico Mountains. We have a perpetually renewable goldmine in our own backyards, and most people don’t even know it.”
