Radio Link: Russell County Rejects National Heritage Area

The following announcement was e-mailed by correspondents from Bristol and Abingdon, Virginia:
"Two of the most outspoken opponents of The Crooked Road National Heritage Area designation are Bill Gibson, a Washington County Virginia supervisor and his twin brother Bob Gibson, a Russell County commissioner. Both of the Gibson brothers will be guests of Rob Schilling, the popular Charlottesville area conservative talk show host today at 12:45PM.(Listen Live Online)

At a jam-packed Russell County Board of Supervisors meeting last night, March 4, 2013, the commissioners passed a Resolution of Non-Support for The Crooked Road National Heritage Area designation supported by Congressman Morgan Griffith and Senator Mark Warner.

Local citizens, farmers and members of the Virginia Farm Bureau shared their feelings with more than an hour of public comments against what is largely viewed as a threat to private property rights and a stealth move toward regional, unelected governance.

Russell County commissioners joined Wythe County and the Town of Rural Retreat with passage of their resolution against designating nineteen rural Southwest Virginia counties as The Crooked Road Heritage Music Trail under the jurisdiction of the National Park Service, with The Crooked Road Board of Directors as the managing entity.
