Greetings,


Mike Templeton gets candid in this week's blog post in which he recounts his recent visit to the hills of Eastern Ohio where he and his wife sought some peace and quiet amongst the rising tension in urban areas. Mike's reflections paint beautiful images of Appalachia and provide critical observations that may impact the future of the region. Check it out below!
