    Once considered the oil capital of the world, “T-Town” has developed into a vibrant (albeit small), modern metro area of more than 900,000 residents. Straddling the South, Southwest and Midwest regions of the country, Tulsa is home to a distinct culture comprised of the best characteristics of each of these regions, in addition to Native American and cowboy heritage. Perhaps the most inviting aspect of Tulsa’s culture, however, is its warm and welcoming hospitality as well as the down-to-earth attitudes of residents who are passionate about their home town.

    The History of Hamilton County

    36:09 431 3 0 0

    A history of Hamilton County presented by the Hamilton County Chamber of Commerce.

    In the early 1800s, settlers began moving along rivers and up the trails, clearing timber and building roofs over their heads, in this place we now call home. Hamilton County was created on February 8, 1821 from the western part of White County. The area of the present Hamilton County was part of White County from 1815 to 1821. From 1812 to 1815, it was part of Gallatin County. And before 1812, it was part of Randolph County. It is named for Alexander Hamilton, Revolutionary War hero and the first United States Secretary of the Treasury. The county seat is in McLeansboro. .As of the 2010 United States Census, there were 8,457 people, 3,489 households, and 2,376 families residing in the county. The population density was 19.5 inhabitants per square mile. There were 4,104 housing units. Of the 3,489 households, 29.8% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 54.9% were married couples living together, 9.2% had a female as head of the household with no husband present, 31.9% were non-families, and 28.1% of all households were made up of individuals. The average household size was 2.39 and the median age was 43.1 years. The median income for a household in the county was $35,032 and the median income for a family was $50,878. Males had a median income of $45,245 versus $23,491 for females. The per capita income for the county was $21,602. About 8.2% of families and 14.5% of the population were below the poverty line, including 21.5% of those under age 18 and 8.5% of those age 65 and older. Since 1821 when Hamilton County was established several communities, villages and small towns have come and gone. Generations have witnessed towns boom and then become obsolete. It seems that 1857 was the first year that many villages and communities were surveyed. Some of your ancestors may remember Lovilla which was surveyed on June 21, 1854 but did not last long when the railroad avoided going through it.. New London was surveyed May 15, 1857. Or maybe Jefferson City which was platted June 4, 1857, and originally consisted of 10 lots on each side of Main Street. There is nothing there now. Logansport was located in Crook Township , it was surveyed June 15, 1857. Eli York was the first merchant and Tilford Taylor the first saloonist. The post office was established about 1861 with John Hawthorn postmaster. The longest running business was jug grocery. The town was laid off by William Logan Malone, and named Logansport after him. Jamestown is another town that was surveyed on December 14, 1857, but has since died a natural death. Other communities included Blairsville, Braden, Bungay, Diamond City, Feakeyville, Flint, Garrison, New Bremen, Olgee, Slapout, Thurber and Tuckers Corner. Other small communities are still considered towns or villages. Delafield is an area that only consists of a little station and agricultural business on the railroad. Some of you may have been through Walpole. It was surveyed on March 11, 1857 and is now just a wide spot in the road. Macedonia was surveyed on January 20, 1858 and later became a flourishing little community. Broughton is still a village in Hamilton County. It was surveyed May 4, 1872. The population was 193 at the 2000 census. However, the village was originally founded in the 1720s by a French woodsman. On February 25, 1857 it has surveyed and named, Rectorville,from Rector Creek, which was named for federal land surveyor John Rector. Dale is an unincorporated community that was surveyed in about 1871 when the railroad was extended to that point. The community was named for Reuben Dale, the owner of a local mill. The community is in the Wabash Valley Seismic Zone. The biggest earthquake in Illinois history was a 5.4 quake on November 9, 1968 near the community. The quake damaged the civic building at Henderson, Kentucky and was felt in 23 states. People in Boston said their building swayed. Some of you may actually remember the earthquake! Dale never did become a booming metropolis but has continued to offer goods and services to the people living in Dale or just driving through. Even today you can get gas and other supplies at Hunts Hardware. Hoodville was surveyed on September 28, 1866. One of the previous businesses was a store and mill kept by Epperson Bros. and J.W. Epperson was the postmaster. Hamilton County Woolen Mills were erected by Hood & Bowers in 1862, at Hoodville, at a cost of $12,000. In 1883 the mills were moved to McLeansboro. It is what was called a one-set mill, having a 180-spindle jack and seven looms. The mills had a capacity of 100 pounds of yarn per day, and 150 yards of cloth. The machinery and entire establishment were propelled by a thirty-six horsepower engine. Belle City, or Belle Prairie as it is otherwise known, was laid out in February, 1862. Main Street runs north and south, Market Avenue and St. Charles Avenue, east and west. In the original plat there were twenty-five lots. Lewis addition was made April 22, 1863 and was quite a flourishing little hamlet. Thackery is a small town built on the Louisville & Nashville Railway. It is six miles east of McLeansboro. It was surveyed on October 6, 1871 and was named after the English novelist, William Makepeace Thackeray. The first merchant was David Hamill, who was also the first postmaster. Some businesses of the past included a general store, a grocery store, a drug store, and two blacksmith shops The physicians were Z.R. Millard and E.G. Neal. Thackeray was the headquarters for two gangs of section hands on the Louisville & Nashville Railway, working 14 men. In 1877 the population was 165. On April 19, 1841, twenty-five pioneers left Ersingen, Germany for the New World. They arrived at Piopolis on August 21, 1841. In 1843 additional setters came from Germany, including Tobias Brummer. The first Mass and first Baptism were performed by Fr. Elisha Durbin from Morganfield, KY in log cabin belonging to Nicholas Engel. In 1844 a 40-acre tract of land was deeded to Bishop William Quarters, Catholic Bishop of Chicago. This tract became Piopolis Church property. In 1846 the first log church was completed and first Mass was celebrated on Ash Wednesday. In 1857 a new frame church building was started by architect Tobias Brummer, but was destroyed by a windstorm before completion. In 1860 a frame church was completed with some help from migrants from Clinton Co. Bishop Juncker of Alton came for Confirmation. In 1861 a small rectory, four rooms, two 12-feet square and two smaller rooms was built and several parishioners left for the Civil War. 1865 when the Civil War ended several parishioners returned and a second resident pastor, Fr. Winterhalter, was installed and also ministered by horseback at McLeansboro, Enfield, Carmi and Mt. Vernon. Marellus Zachman was hired as lay teacher and Bishop Juncker was instrumental in getting the Precious Blood Sisters of Burwell, Germany to locate their convent to Piopolis. In 1870 a two-story Motherhouse and school frame building was completed at a cost of $3,000.00. Of which Bishop Juncker donated $500.00. On Feb.28, nine nuns from Gurtwell, Germany arrived by wagon after coming by boat to Shawneetown. They immediately took over the teaching at the school and continued until 1964. In 1877, 13 acres of church property was surveyed and laid out into 50 lots to become a small village. In 1879 sixteen orphan girls were sent to Piopolis to be taken care of by the nuns. Plans were drawn up for a new church and half-million bricks were baked for this first brick church. In 1880 the foundation was laid for the new church after the frame church was moved aside. In 1881 the cornerstore of the brick church was laid on May 4, but on August 6 a storm demolished the west wall while under construction. Following the storm damage repairs the church was completed by the end of 1882, at a cost of $12,000.00. First couple married in the new church was John and Henrica Reyling. At that time it was said that the church building was the finest edifice in the county. On August 21, 2016 Piolpolis celebrated 175 years with a huge celebration and a reenactment of the German settlers arriving at Pioplolis. There were over 1,000 people in attendance. Dahlgren is a small village located along Illinois 142 in Hamilton County. The historic depot still stands although there is no public train service. Dahlgren is situated on the Louisville & Nashville Railroad, in the northwestern part of Hamilton County, eleven miles from McLeansboro. It began to be settled in December, 1870. It was the result of the building of that railroad, and was named in honor of John A. Dahlgren, a U.S. Navy Officer. He devised a smooth bore howitzer and introduced a cast-iron muzzle-loading cannon, known as the Dahlgren gun. At the time, it is believed, that he had an interest in the railroad. The town was originally built on land owned by Abel Kuykendall and A.M. Sturman. The first building was erected by James Steel in 1870 for the purpose of selling goods. Samuel M. Butler began selling dry goods in the same building about March, 1871, and continued in the same business until 1883. About the time the town was started Nathan Garrison established himself in the lumber business, and coupled with that the sale of agricultural implements. The first mill was built by A. M. Sturman & Sons in 1873. From 1873 to 1883, they ran a saw mill in connection with their flouring mill. The first hotel was built in 1871 by William Carman who continued as the proprietor about two years. In 1884, David Usry erected the first livery stable. 1877 the business of the town consisted of five dry goods stores, two groceries, a hardware store, a drug store, a harness shop, a furniture shop operated by Nathan Garrison, who also dealt in grain, and farming implements. Dahlgren had 3 blacksmiths, 2 hotels, livery and a feed stable. There were three physicians, two lawyers, and two shoemakers. As of the 2010 census, there were 525 people living in Dahlgren. Steve Wilkerson was elected Village President in 2013 after the retirement of Jasper Goin, who had served as mayor for 38 years. The village provides basic utility services including water, sewer and gas. Agriculture remains the primary economic activity of Dahlgren. Other business activity includes retail sales and manufacturing. Businesses operating within the Village are Counter Top Creations, Dahlgren Building Center, Goin Sales, Rapp Cabinets, Hamilton County Telephone and Communications, Hamsons Trading Post, Peoples National Bank, other small businesses and numerous family farms. Dahlgren is located within the Hamilton County Unit 10 School District. Elementary-age children attend Dahlgren Grade School through the 6th grade. Jr. High and Senior High students are bused to the Hamilton County Jr./ Sr. High in McLeansboro. McLeansboro was laid out in 1821. The original plat contained thirty-six blocks, four of which, in the center of the plat, were occupied by the public square. There were two principal streets running in each direction through the plat, north and south and east and west, Main and Market Streets, run east and west, and Jackson and Washington, north and south, the public square being bounded by these four streets each of which is 66 feet wide. Outside of these streets were two alleys running in each direction, each 14 feet wide, and all around the town was a border 33 feet wide. The lots were 84 in number, each 60×180 feet wide. Thomas Sloo, Jr., surveyed the town, June 2, 1821. The original plat contained twenty acres. Since then numerous additions have been made. McLeansboro was named after Dr. William McLean who built the first house in McLeansboro, in the northeast corner of the town. The second was by Jarrett Garner, near the southeast corner of the public square. James Allen built the third, not far from Jarrett Garner�s, and Samuel Dietz, the fourth near the northwest corner of the public square. All of these were made of logs. The first frame house was built by Jesse C. Lockwood, the second by Daniel Marshall, and the third by Daniel Tolley, and it was a long time before any more frame houses were built. Joseph Irvin was the first hatter in the town, and James Allen the first tanner. The first blacksmith was Solomon Collins. Collins shop was near the northeast corner of the square. The first wagonmaker was Samuel Patton, a brother-in-law of Collins. The first tailor was Samuel Dietz, and the first tinner was John S. Kinnear. The first physician was Dr. William B. McLean, the second Lorenzo Rathbone. The first resident attorney at law, licensed to practice, was Samuel S. Marshall. Charles H. and John H. Heard, brothers, commenced merchandising in about 1834, conducting their store about two years. Charles H. Heard commenced again in 1837, and followed the business until 1874, when he retired. The first school in McLeansboro, in a building erected for school purposes, was taught by Theodore Scott, an old soldier of the war of 1812. The pottery-ware made in the town was by a Mr. Pike in 1822 or 1823. The first students sent to college from this place were Judge Marshall, to Princeton, Ky., and Judge Crouch, to McKendree College. The growth of McLeansboro had been slow but steady. By 1877 the businesses included Dry goods and groceries, drug stores, clothing store, hardware stores, furniture stores, agricultural implements, lumber yards, undertakers, harness and saddles shops, blacksmiths, boot and shoe stores, book and news store, ice dealer, meat markets, confectionery and ice cream shops, a hotel, restaurants, boarding houses, millinery stores, marble cutters, and livery stable. The population of the city was somewhere between 1,600 to 1,700. . The City Hotel was destroyed by fire on May 1, 1889. The City Flouring Mills were built in 1875 by Coker & Guill, and put in operation August 1 of that year. The building was a frame one, three stories high above the basement; 36×60 feet, and with the machinery cost about $36,000. In 1879 W.A.Coker, the proprietor, bought out Mr. Guill. The mills had a capacity of 100 barrels of four per day, and the machinery was run by a sixty-horse power engine. The Peoples Mills were erected in 1878 by C. H. Heard. The building was of brick, 48×52 feet in size, and three stories high above the basement. It cost about $22,000. There were four run of buhrs three for wheat and one for corn and the capacity was 100 barrels of four per day. Mr. Heard was the proprietor of the mills. Rice & Papes Mill was built about 1867, and was located on Main Street, in the east part of town. It was a frame building, and consisted of both grist and saw mill. The grist was used mostly for grinding corn, and the sawing of lumber was the main business of the establishment. It was valued at about $4,000. E. I. Tinkham & Co.s bank was established at McLeansboro in September, 1855, with a capital of $500,000. Smith Tinkham was president and William Rickcords, cashier. Its circulation was secured by bonds of the State of Ohio, and when the bank went into liquidation in 1862 its circulation was all redeemed in gold. The Bank of the Republic was established at McLeansboro in the fall of 1856 with a capital of $1,000.000. Charles H. Rockwell was president and John Rockwell, cashier. Its circulation was secured by bonds of the States of Virginia, Tennessee and North Carolina, and when, in 1862, on account of the war it closed out its business. Its notes were redeemed at various and heavy discounts. Hamilton County Bank of ante bellum days, like the other two named above, existed only a few years, from the spring of 1855 to 1862. Its circulation, however, being all based on bonds of Northern States, was all redeemed at par. Hamilton County Bank was started in 1871 by Chalon G. Cloud on the corner of Washington and Market Streets. Mr. Cloud conducted his business alone for some years, and then employed assistance as such became necessary. This was simply a bank of discount and deposit. The bank remained in its original location until the completion of the elegant brick building 1881. (Which is where Foxy is currently located.) This building remained in use until 1972 when the bank moved into its new location on the corner of Washington and Market, where it is still located today. Hamilton County Bank became Banterra Bank in 1989. The Banterra Bank mission is to be a strong regional community bank delivering financial services that provide long-term value to its customers, employees and shareholders. At Banterra Bank they understand that banking is about relationships. It is about understanding your goals, and being the financial partner you need to help achieve those goals. Banterra Bank actually began as a small bank in Ridgeway, Illinois in 1975. The history of Peoples National Bank, chartered as a national bank in 1909, actually began in 1893, when a private firm called Peoples Bank was founded in McLeansboro, Illinois, by John H. Miller. Mr. Miller, a prominent businessman who later served as Speaker of the Illinois House, led the Bank until his death in 1907. In 1909 the trustees reorganized the bank and obtained a national bank charter as Peoples National Bank. In 1923 Peoples National Bank assumed a portion of the assets and liabilities of the Cloud State Bank, originally organized in 1871 by Chalon Cloud as a private bank under the name Hamilton County Bank. Peoples National Bank also purchased the Cloud State Bank building, which had been built by Chalon Cloud and his father, A.G. Cloud, in 1880-1882. The distinctive Cloud State Bank building had been designed by the Reid Brothers of Evansville, Indiana. Now on the National Register of Historic Places, this building is still the home of Peoples National Bank in McLeansboro, and has become a symbol of the long history of the Bank as a strong financial institution. Almost 80 years later, on August 8, 1988, shareholders Bill Bonan, an attorney, and his brother, Hunt Bonan, formed a bank holding company for the purpose of acquiring 100% of the stock of Peoples National Bank. In 1973 Peoples National Bank opened a second banking location in McLeansboro at 200 East Randolph Street. In 1999 Peoples National Bank purchased the former Mercantile Bank location in Dahlgren at 201 W. Main Street. Peoples National Bank has now been in continuous operation for over 100 years, having survived even the Great Depression. With assets of over $1 billion, Peoples National Bank continues to offer financial services that meet the needs of individuals and small business owners. The cemetery southeast of the city was established early in 1875. The cemetery was very pleasantly situated and tastefully laid out and kept. There are two local funeral homes. Harre Funeral Home and Gholson Funeral Home that offer their services to families at a difficult time. Gholson Funeral Home is Family-Owned & Operated Since 1947. Harre Funeral Home was initiated by a group of interested citizens who felt their community needed options in funeral service. The original owner, Charles M. Johnson agreed and the wheels were in motion for construction of, in its day, a state of the art Funeral Home. The Funeral Home was the largest of its kind ever constructed in this area and construction was completed in March of 1975. These businesses have continued to grow using the original ideas of serving the community with quality service at an affordable price. At the time of the 2010 Census, McLeansboro had 1,456 Housing Units and a population of 2,883 people living in an area of 2.29 square miles. And, are open for business! With the recent completion of a multi-million dollar water project, the City has committed resources improving the delivery of potable water to customers, improving the Citys fire rating by having more hydrants along lines, and reducing the amount of water lost due to leakage; according to the City of McLeansboro, city clerk. In 2014 we updated our electrical substation, capable of producing 12 to 15 megawatts of electricity with a redundant operating transformer. Also installed was an electronically operated switch gear for our distribution circuits. Currently we are upgrading our system to 12470Y primary voltage posturing for future expected growth. The Y system provides increased safety with its recloser system. Being environmentally friendly, we are installing wild life protection on our upgraded system and replacing all roadway lighting with new, LED technologies which require less energy for more light. The City of McLeansboro owns its own electrical system which allows it to provide very competitive rates among Midwestern power utilities. Power is provided to the City by Southern Illinois Power Cooperative, a not-for- profit, which allows revenue to be reinvested in the City’s infrastructure. We are proud of our six municipal parks totaling almost 70 acres. Offering something for just about everyone, there are developed play areas, fishing docks on Lake McLeansboro, and quiet nature trails along natural waterways. We also have a 9- hole golf course. Our parks provide clean and healthy environments for recreation and all-season opportunities to enjoy our natural heritage. Our civic-minded societies, clubs and organizations offer many opportunities to play a larger part in our community! How about Christmas on the Square, Fall Festival, Firecracker 5K, Founders Day, Fourth of July Celebrations, Hamilton County Fair, Hamilton Memorial Hospital Foundation Dinner, Hamilton County Unit 10 Foundation Dinner, H. Allen Smith Literary Competition, Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast, Lake McLeansboro Crappie Tourney, Lake McLeansboro Bass Tourney, Relay for Life, Rotary St. Patricks Day Run, Tiger Run 5K and the list goes on of community events celebrating what it means to be us, here, now! McLeansboro is a city zoned for success. McLeansboro is organized into three residential districts, two business districts, an industrial district and an agriculture district. The area around the square is now part of a historic preservation overlay district which will help to keep the late 19th Century architecture intact and preserve an important part of our past. Much of the square was built between 1880 and 1920, and four buildings within the district are listed with the National Register of Historic Places. These include; as previously mentioned the Peoples National Bank and the Cloud/Wright/Sloan/Bonan house on South Washington, St. James Episcopal Church building and the McCoy Memorial Library. Our businesses range from agri-business to cupcakes, electronics to basketry, racecars to graphic artists, and many things in-between! While you ponder the many aspects of our community you can eat at one of our 12 restaurants including Autens Pizza, Dairy Queen, Deep South, Foxy, McDonalds, Subway and Toms Priced Right Foods. Visit our three museums, or kick back and get prettied up at one of our many beauty salons or barber shops including Natalie Josephs. Hamilton County residents are reminded to shop local. Shops and retails stores include Irvins Jewelry, The Rons Liquor Hut, Vaupel Home Furnishings, Auto Outlet and Hamilton County Flooring. Since the early 1800 this has been and continues to be an agricultural community. Some of our businesses include Gavilon Grain, Pioneer Hi-Bred, 4-R Equipment, Allen Trucking, Fender Mender, Wuebbels Repair, McLeansboro Auto & Ag, Town & Country Vet Clinic, Hamilton County Farm Bureau, and University of Illinois Extension. The coal industry has been a part of Hamilton county history. With the industry comes several businesses including Hamilton County Coal and North Hamilton County Coal. Banking and other financial institutions have always been an important part of the organized community. Today we have several local choices including Banterra Bank, Peoples National Bank, Hamilton County Loan, Bowling & Assoicates, Edward Jones, Katrina Roberson Accounting, and Monroe Accounting. Hamilton County is home to several government, insurance, marketing and legal services including Mary Anne Hopfinger, County Clerk and Beth Sandusky Circuit Clerk, Chapman Insurance Agency, State Farm Insurance, Draper Insurance, Hamilton County Water District, Trade Industries, Sea Service Family, Consulting, Van Winkle & Van Winkle, Stringer Creative, CJ Realty, Dana Communications, Fox Communications, and Times-Leader Newspaper. Other specialty shops include Cook Engraving. Craddock Pest Control, McLeansboro Space Center, STC, Inc. Tri-Five, LLC and Wilsons Computers. Hamilton County is extremely lucky to have access to health care right here at home including Hamilton Memorial Hospital, Harre Ambulance, Heartland Womens Healthcare, Southern Illinois Healthcare and York Pharmacy. Hamilton Memorial Hospital started with an idea and a belief that the citizens of Hamilton County deserved the services of a hospital in the county. Citizens of the county working under the guidelines of the Hospital District Act in 1957 began collecting petition signatures in 1957 calling for the creation of a hospital district. The petitions were filed on June 4, 1957 and a hearing was held on July 13, 1957. The Court found that the legal number of signatures had been obtained, sufficient notice and publication given and it therefore was ordered that an election be held on Saturday, September 14, 1957. An election was held and the results of the election were canvassed on September 20, 1957 with the results that 2,680 voters voted Yes and 726 voted No. Therefore, Judge Charles Jones ordered that the territory comprising all the County of Hamilton, except that part of the Village of Macedonia, which lies within the County of Franklin, shall henceforth be an organized Hospital District under the Hospital District Law and named Hamilton Memorial Hospital District. A tremendous amount of work and effort was involved in organizing the District and much more would take place before the first patient would be admitted on May 20, 1960. In July 2000, a community survey was conducted regarding the Hamilton Memorial Hospital District. Results of the survey showed strong community support of the Hospital District. Seventy-five percent had an above average perception of the Hospital District and the quality of services it performed while 100% would recommend the Districts services and felt that the community needs a local hospital. The Hamilton Memorial Hospital District is proud to have served the residents of Hamilton County and its surrounding areas since 1960. The district, like the health care industry in general, has experienced many changes since its inception over fifty seven years ago. The district is committed to continual growth and providing the highest quality health care available to our patients. The district is truly thankful to the citizens of Hamilton County for allowing it to serve them and look forward to many more years of meeting the health care needs of the area. As you can see the businesses of Hamilton County have come and gone. When the need arises the business men and women think outside the box and build a strong community by investing in the future of Hamilton County.

    Stephanie and Brandee with All Web Promotion delivered a presentation on basic Cyber Security measures business owners can take to protect their website, computers, phones, and online accounts. This was delivered to the Illinois Valley Area Chamber of Commerce in Peru, Illinois. All Web Promotion is a website design and marketing agency located in Oglesby, Illinois. For more information, contact All Web Promotion at 888-883-9462 or visit our website:

    *Stephanie* Today we are going to share with you some tips to keep you a little bit safer. These include proper passwords use, security of physical devices, anti-virus software, avoiding risky behavior, and website security. So we have a presentation over here. And I want to start with talking about passwords. And what actually makes a good password. I know people tend to hate passwords because they’re difficult to manage and remember. But fortunately there are a few things you can do to make this easier. If you sign up for any new accounts you’ve probably been forced to create a password that has uppercase letters, numbers, all sorts of symbols, and things like that. But that’s actually counter-intuitive to making a good password. So if you look at this comic strip up here, a lot of sites want you to create a password like the upper top corner you can see there’s a zero used for an “o” or a four used for an a, an & symbol and all sorts of stuff. Complicated, hard for you to remember and things like that. Below that, there’s another example of a password, which is just four random common words. This one is “correct horse battery staple.” And in the first example that only accounts for 28 bits of entropy, which if a computer were guessing at 1,000 guesses per second, it would only take 3 days for a computer to crack that password. Where as the bottom password, “correct horse batter staple” is 44 bits of entropy. It would take a computer 550 years at 1,000 guesses per second to guess that password. So the moral of the story here is longer is better, not more complicated. In addition to making better passwords, you also shouldn’t repeat passwords. So if you tend to use the same password over and over again for many different accounts, whether it’s your email or your bank or Facebook, etc.; you really should have a unique password for every account. And to make this easier on you to remember you can use a standard naming convention. So let’s say you have a basic password you wanted to use. In this example, you can see down at the bottom I have “snowwhite&the7dwarfs.” So you can add a unique identifier, let’s say to the end of your password that identifies the website you’re using it for. So in this example I’m just taking the first letter of the company and the last letter of the company. So my password for Google becomes “snowwhite&the7dwarfsge.” For Amazon it would be “snowwhite&the7dwarfsan.” And Yahoo “y-o” at the end. So you can see using a pattern like that will help you easily remember a basic password, you’ll only have to remember you last few characters at the end of the service you’re using. Another way to do this would be to insert the whole word in there. As you can see I have “snowwhite&the7Googledwarfs,” “snowwhite&the7Amazondwarfs,” which are the tallest dwarfs you will ever see. “Snowwhite&the7Yahoodwarfs,” so there’s a couple of different ways. Ok, so having a unique password for every site might seem like a nightmare, but you can actually keep this under control using a password vault. If you’ve never heard of a password vault, it’s just a program that stores all of your passwords and you access it with one master password. So you don’t have to mesmerize your passwords for 1,000 different sites. Your passwords for individual sites can actually just be randomly generated or however you want to do it. A couple of examples of password vaults are KeePass and LastPass. These are two pretty big companies that do password vaults. The difference here is KeePass will be a software you install on your computer and it will hold all of your passwords and you can use it for anything on your computer. Whether you’re logging into a program on your computer, or something in your browser, etc. But it’s only good for your computer. LastPass on the other hand you can share across multiple devices. So you can keep your passwords on your computer, your tablet, your phone, etc. But it’s only browser based, so it’s only going to help you with logging into things on the internet, not actual programs on your device. So those are two examples that you guys can consider. LastPass is pretty affordable. I think about $12 a year or something like that. It’s usually worth the hassle. And there are other options out there, but those are two pretty reputable companies. Alright, so now that you have some good password tips, make sure you’re using passwords on your devices. This is pretty much a no-brainer if you’re using a shared device or are in a public space and stuff like that. But many people often feel like you don’t need a password on your home computer. And I would urge you to reconsider that, because if someone broke into your house and stole your computer, they would have access to all of your information on that computer. However, some random person robbing your house, probably isn’t also going to be a hacker. So a password on your computer can be just enough of a deterrent and most likely they would end up selling your computer for parts or completely wiping it and your information could potentially stay secure. It could be just enough of a deterrent for a criminal to not want to bother with it. Make sure you’re using passwords on all of your devices too. If you guys have phones and tablets, there’s a lot of different options for securing those now, where you don’t have to remember a password. A lot of phones, you can just draw a pattern, some phones have fingerprint scanners on them. So check with your device and see what kind of security options you have on there and figure out something that is going to work for you that you are going to remember and hopefully not lock yourself out of your own device. Before we move on here to Anti-virus software, let me just talk a little bit about wireless networks too. Since you securing your devices, make sure you also secure your wireless network. In addition to using a long password, there’s other things you can do too. Such as turning on WPA2 encryption, changing your SS ID name, test and enable your wireless routers firewall, and turn off the admin via wireless features on your router. If you just Google tips for securing your home network, you’ll get a lot of great informational articles that will give you more information on that. Just like I said before, if someone breaks into your house to steal your computer, you’re probably going to notice it. You’re probably not going to notice if someone breaks into your WIFI connection because you’re usually not monitoring that. So take the steps upfront to have security before ten of your neighbors start stealing your internet or accessing your network. Ok, so limiting access to your devices and network will keep you physically safe. The next step is to make sure there’s some protection while you’re connected to the internet, which means anti-virus software. I can’t tell you how many times a friend or family member has called me to help them get a virus off of their computer. For less web savvy people like my mom, who’s on Facebook playing games all of the time, I’m constantly cleaning her computer. But even smart savvy web browsers like me, I know what to stay away from on the internet and stuff like that. Even I’ve gotten computer viruses. It’s really easy to get infected out there, because cyber criminals just keep getting more and more cunning. Which is why everyone should have some type of protection. Then the question comes how do you choose a good anti-virus program, because you know there are millions out there. Luckily, I’ve done the research for you and I have a couple of good recommendations. It pains me to say this a little bit, but some of the best protection out there is from providers you are already familiar with, like Norton and McAfe. I find both of those to be a bit clunky and irritating. They are always asking you things, popping up on your computer. But they are very highly rated by both independent testing companies and users for their effectiveness. So if you are already using Norton or McAfe, you are good on those. If you are looking for some type of more robust anti-virus, that’s a little less intrusive, consider WebRoot. It’s a PC magazine nineteen-time winner and it boasts NextGen Cyber Security. It’s available for PC and Mac, along with your mobile devices and at some competitive pricing. It’s about the same price as Norton. Another great program to look into is Malwarebytes, especially if you already think you are infected with malware on your computer. A lot of times if I’m helping someone get a virus off their computer, I’ll look up what the virus is and find how-to articles on how to remove it, and usually the first step on all of those is to install Malwarebytes and run it on your computer. So this is a really reliable program. I recommend that everyone use this. Some other highly rated programs include Persky Antivirus, Bit Defender, and Trend Micro Internet Security 2017. Our next topic here is software updates. This is a huge factor in staying secure. Just keeping your system up to date. All of those updates are not just for new features, they fix security vulnerabilities. Mac users don’t usually have a big problem with this because you guys are used to automatic updates. However PC users are horrible at updating. So if you are still clinging onto Windows XP, you’ve got to give it up. You’ve just got to come to terms that it’s no longer supported, it’s a security nightmare, and get yourself upgraded to Windows 8.1 or Windows 10. I mean, if you are using an outdated system like that, you’re using something that hackers have had 10, 15 years to investigate and find all of the holes and everything and like I said, it’s not supported by Microsoft anymore. So you are not going to get any security fixes or anything for it. While we are talking about Windows, let’s move on to Internet Explorer, not my favorite browser because I’m a web developer. But it is one of the most popular browsers. Again if you are using Windows XP, you cannot update past Internet Explorer 8, which is pretty out of date, causing you another huge security risk. If you are stuck on Windows XP because your employer won’t upgrade your computers or something like that, you could download Chrome or Firefox as a safer browsing option. If you are on a newer version of Windows, make sure you are using IE 11 or Edge. No exceptions, there’s no reason to be on an older version of Internet Explorer. Using out of date browsers is a huge security risk, so if possible, if it’s not already, make sure you set your browser to automatically update. That’s the best option. So using outdated software is risky, but there are also other risky behaviors that you should avoid while online. Now you’re not likely to stumble on anything in the dark underbelly of the internet, like the deep web or something like that. Unless you go looking for it, but that doesn’t mean that there’s other places that you’re going to find yourself where you could get into a little bit of trouble. So here’s some things you need to stay away from. The first one is peer-to-peer file sharing. Do you guys remember Napster? Way back in the day? Napster brought the concept of peer-to-peer file sharing kind of to the public eye and made it a household name. It’s the predecessor to all sort of programs like Bearshare, Limewire, Bit Torrent, the kind of things kids use to download music and stuff like that. In addition to the legal implications of using those types of programs and services, it’s like leaving your front door open and turning your porch light on for malware. You’re voluntarily downloading files from some person you don’t know on the internet and hoping it is what it says it is. Also stay away from questionable downloads and entertainment. Nowadays this includes things like Pirate Bay and online video streaming sites. If you’re using the internet for things you shouldn’t talk about in public, chances are you are engaging in some risky behavior. We don’t encourage any illegal behavior, but even if what you are doing is legal but a little bit shady, get a computer you don’t care about and dedicate it to that and do not hook it to your network. So secure shopping is our next topic, a much safer topic. This is our area of expertise. As you guys know, we’re web developers with great websites and we specialize in ecommerce websites; websites that sell products or services to customers. So if you are shopping online, as a lot of people who shop online now, always make sure that you are using a secure checkout. Look for that security icon in your browser. Never ever give your pin information over an unsecure connection and that includes email. Do not email your personal information because email is not secure. If you yourself are running an online store, you are going to want to have an SSL certificate. That is the handy thing that gives your customers that security lock and secures your checkout. It may cost you a little bit of money, but if you are subject to PCI compliance laws, it’s something you have to have. As a side benefit to having an SSL certificate, it tends to have positive effects on your conversions and it can also give you a bit of a SEO boost. So it might increase your search engine rankings. If you are running an informational site, statistically speaking you are probably on Wordpress, which is one of the most popular Content Management Systems in the world. And for good reason. It’s really easy to use. Chances are you’ve probably had some interaction with WordPress powered sites. We’ve done many local WordPress sites. You can see some examples up there. Jalapenos, Amia Boutique, John’s North Star, Gunsmoke Grill. About 1/6th of all content management websites are on WordPress right now. So if you have a back end to run your website, there’s a really good chance that you are on WordPress. Unfortunately with popularity comes vulnerability. Hackers love to target large platforms because the possible payout is much larger when the target pool is so much bigger. That’s why WordPress is often the target of attacks. But fortunately there are easy ways to keep your WordPress site secure too. This includes installing security plugins, keep your installation up to date, use strong passwords like we already talked about, if you’re using FTP to access your site at all, make sure it’s Secure FTP. Keep all of your plugins up to date, and make sure they are from trusted suppliers. The great part about WordPress is there are literally thousands and thousands of developers developing free tools you can use on your website. Just because they are free doesn’t mean they are safe. So on WordPress.org, you can always look up a plugin and see what it is rated by other consumers and get more information about it and do your research before you install it on your website. You can also use Cloudbase Firewalls. These next couple of things are things that a security plugin might do for you, and that’s renaming your admin account, make frequent backups, filter out your spam comments, logging and monitoring tools, lock down your file permissions, which you can do via your secure FTP access. And make sure you pick a quality web hosting provider. Not all web hosting providers are equal. Our last security tip is “Stop Spambots.” You probably have a general idea of what a spambot is. It’s some variation of an automated program designed to do something in mass. Usually something annoying or malicious. This can cause problems in many forms. It could be a denial of service attack where bots just keep trying to access your site so many times, it uses up all of your system resources and so your website goes down. Or this could be, you know, sending you a billion spam emails through the forms on your website. Or if you have an ecommerce website, trying to submit tons of fraudulent orders. One of the best things you can do, the first thing you should do, is use your providers built in security risk tools. So for example, we work with Yahoo Small Business, they have some risk tools like Recaptcha and stuff like that you can enable, that tries to help identify real customers from bots. A lot of times, your provider will have tools. On top of that, you can use third party solutions that can help filter out the spam traffic before it gets to your website. Services like Cloudflare Security, Imperva, Incapsula, these are services you can pay for. So when traffic comes to your website, it hits this service first, they determine whether or not it’s legitimate traffic and if it’s not, they block it, if it is legitimate traffic, they let it through your site. So filtering out that traffic before it gets to your site is ideal and can help you avoid any outages or things like that. So those are all of our tips. I hope you found them helpful. Just to review, we went over using proper passwords, securing your physical devices, make sure you are using anti-virus software, avoid risky behavior, and secure your website.

And I really can’t say enough good about them. *Brandee* Thanks, Pat! *Audience Question* Can we get a copy of your Power Point presentation? *Stephanie* Sure! If you just want to give us your contact information and email we can send all of that that all over to you. *Audience Question* I saw a guy on TV who had been selling “white list” security instead of Norton or McAfe… PC Man… you didn’t mention that kind of product at all. *Stephanie* I’m not familiar with that one, but I could research that and let you know. It is something you always want to research with anti-virus, because a big thing is there are a lot of programs out there that claim to be anti-virus programs, that are actually malware and trojans and malicious software for your computer. So, I haven’t seen the ad. If it’s a legitimate commercial, it might be something worth looking into. If it was an infomercial, I probably wouldn’t download it. *Brandee* It kind of like reminds me of those pop-up ads that you get on your computer. That’ll say like you have ten viruses, download this now to take care of it, which is a complete trap. So ultimately, it’s better to be careful. *Audience Question* Now is there any way to block that? *Brandee* The pop ups? *Audience Question* Yeah. *Stephanie* Chrome and Firefox have some ad-ons that you can put on there that block ads in general. Probably some simple advice on that. That’s a good thing to watch out for too, I didn’t mention, but if you’re downloading anti-virus or stuff, make sure you are on the actual manufacturer’s website; the official site to get it because a lot of places will make it look like you are downloading that product and you are not and it’s a bad program and things like that. Especially, even sites where you can get legitimate downloads, a lot of time there are ads that look like download buttons and you’re just all like “there’s 10 download buttons, what do I click?” So you’ve gotta be really vigilant about that. *Brandee* Yeah and those pop-up ads, so they try to trick you sometimes. And they’ll say like a big like “X” button that says like close or something in the middle of the ad, which is probably actually a download button. So always close out those pop-ups by the actual “X” button that’s in that top right-hand corner. Yeah, they will try to like trick you in other ways to download it. *Audience Question* Is really the end-game for people to spend that much time to try to be nefarious and do things with your computer, just to get information to make money from it? I mean, what other motivation is there for somebody to do that? *Stephanie* It’s all money-based. So… at the end of the day, whether they’re installing a key logger on your computer to get your passwords or anything like that, they’re trying to get your personal identification, to get your banking information, or to steal your identity and things like that. And you might think it’s a lot of effort, but actually I just read a blog post from Yahoo that referenced another dudes article and low-wage workers like in Bangladesh, India and stuff like that; people will actually pay them, it averages from $.80 to $1.20 to try to get past 1,000 Captcha forms. So there are people in these other countries willing to work very cheap to do all of this stuff in mass. So it is worth the effort for some people. They are creative. They are outsourcing! They are outsourcing their own nefarious business. And that happens a lot. Just like when you hear about, if you get rid of your computer you should always, you know, destroy your hard drive or wipe your hard drive and stuff like that. When computers get recycled, they get all of these hard drives and sell all of these hard drives, they usually end up in West Africa. Usually in places like Kenya, Ghana, and stuff like that. That is where a lot of internet fraud comes from. Especially if they are getting your credit card information, off of your site. Like Nikki mentioned in my introduction, I used to work for a large ecommerce retailer. And I ran the live chat department, and with the chat software you could actually see where people were chatting from. And we’d look late at night, at 3am and stuff like that, you could see that there were people from Russia just constantly going through the checkout trying different credit card numbers. So it’s very interesting, but the end game is yes, to get your financial information, to steal your identity, and to make money off of you. *Audience Question* Part 2 of that is, how do you, how do we just in the home wipe out the machine when we are ready to get rid of it? *Stephanie* There are a couple of different, like military-grade wiping programs that you can use. If you want to give us your contact information I can send you a link. Another thing is a lot of people just physically destroy your hard drive. *Brandee* Yeah, if you are done with the computer and you are not passing it along to anyone else you can just take your hard drive out and we just drill a hole through it. You just want to make sure that you actually get the disk. If you break that disk inside the hard drive, you’ll be good. But there are actually software tools, that if you like, restore or wipe the hard drive, that sometimes it’s not always gone. There are tools that they could go back and recover some of your information. So we just recommend that when you’re actually done with that computer, it’s old, you’re going to throw it out, take the hard drive out and destroy it; whether with a hammer or a drill. *Stephanie* If you are passing it on, like I said, get a quality program. These are not something that’s going to be something light. They will go through, if you run this, it will take like 2 days and it will just continue to write over your hard drive like a zillion times until any information on it is not readable anymore. *Host* Any other questions today? Ok, thank you ladies. *Applause*

    Wisconsin Employment First Initiative. For the past year the Employment First Initiative has led to promoting the education, awareness, and advocacy for people with disabilities in the workforce. Employment First Initiatives from 2015-16 School Year through the Present Starting with an Employment First Grant Application to the Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities in September 2015 the Medford Area Public School District has been able to work in the lead and in partnership to hold the following events held in the last calendar year: • Your Child Can Work Presentation – November 2015 • Employment First Presentation at Wisconsin Statewide Transition Conference • Community Conversation on Employing People with Disabilities held in May 2016 • Open House at Black River Industries held in September 2016 • Amazing Race to Employment held in October 2016 • Heroes to Hire Program held in October 2016 • Take Your Legislator to Work Day held in February 2017 • Student Ambassador Training and Presentations at: Medford Chamber, Medford Morning Rotary, Transition Advisory Council, and more. The Employment First Initiative has helped create many student success stories including one by Hunter Hill. Hunter is currently a Junior at Medford Area Senior High School and has been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and Intellectual Disabilities. Hunter once told me that “all I want to do is work Mr. Joe. Why can’t I work like everyone else?” It was this drive to work that led Hunter to getting hired by the Medford Area Public School District under Buildings and Grounds Supervisor Dave Makovsky. Hunter was hired to work part-time during the summer and again during the school year during 7th and 8th hours. After working for about a year – Hunter went to Mr. Makovsky and asked for a raise because he was doing the same work as everyone else and had worked longer than some. Hunter earned a raise from Mr. Makovsky. During this time Hunter was also being trained as a Student Ambassador through the Employment First Initiative. Hunter developed a power point presentation on why hiring people with disabilities was important, what his skills were, and where he wanted to go with his career. Hunter gave formal presentations at community organizations including the Medford Morning Rotary Club. He was then asked to give a presentation at our Community Conversation on Employing People with Disabilities. That morning at home Hunter had a seizure and was given medication by his Mom. On the way to school Hunter suffered his second seizure. Hunter then went to the Taylor County Education Center where the Community Conversation was going on. About 15 minutes prior to being scheduled to give his power point presentation – Hunter had his 3rd seizure of the day. His teacher Mrs. van der Berg recognized it and Hunter was taken into the all. Hunter’s mom Heidi was in the audience and went with him into the hallway along with Dr. Rick Mayrer who happened to be there. Heidi stated that she couldn’t give any more seizure medication to him because he already had a dose. She recommended that they go home so Hunter could rest. Dr. Mayrer stated that Hunter should go to Aspirus due to having his 3rd seizure. Hunter politely told them both no, that he had a job to do, and that job was to give his power point presentation. Hunter then went back into the Community Conversation and gave his presentation with no one in the audience having known what was going on. In October of this year Hunter was asked to give another Student Ambassador presentation at the Heroes to Hire Initiative at NTC. Hunter gave the presentation to all of the Human Resource Managers who were in attendance. One of these was Carly Harder from the Weathershield Corporation. Carly was so impressed with Hunter that she went and helped create a new position – mail office delivery person at the Corporate Office and offered Hunter a position. Hunter accepted with the notation that he still needed to keep his other job of working janitorial at MASH. Hunter and now another student Kody Schultz are now both working for Weathershield. Hunter was also featured during the Take Your Legislator to Work Day and showed Representative Edming what he did at Weathershield.

  • WOMEN IN WWII INDUSTRY & WAR EFFORT “MANPOWER” U.S. GOVERNMENT FILM 45244

    yt 8683 WOMEN IN WWII INDUSTRY WAR EFFORT MANPOWER U.S. GOVERNMENT FILM 45244 150x113 - WOMEN IN WWII INDUSTRY & WAR EFFORT "MANPOWER" U.S. GOVERNMENT FILM 45244

    “Manpower” is a 1943 government film that shows how industries and factories responded during World War II, through the War Manpower Commission, to locate and solve worker shortages. In Baltimore a WMC approved experiment begins, with job switching discouraged by the unions, and new men located to take jobs who might not have ordinarily filled these jobs — storekeepers, small businessmen, etc. The film includes a look at the hiring of women and African Americans — here referred to as Negroes — to meet the labor shortage and promotes various initiatives to meet the desperate need for labor during the war, with how women entered the workforce for the first time in unprecedented numbers. Only 10 million of 50 million American women were working at the start of the war. By the end of the war many of these women were working in factories including airplane assembly lines. At 5:54 women welders and “Rosie the Riveter” (6:25) types are seen. The War Manpower Commission was a World War II agency of the United States Government charged with planning to balance the labor needs of agriculture, industry and the armed forces. The Commission was created by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in Executive Order 9139 of April 18, 1942. Its chairman was Paul V. McNutt, head of the Federal Security Agency. In this Executive Order, the War Manpower Commission was headed by the Federal Security Administrator as Chairman, and consisted of representatives from the Department of War, the Department of the Navy, the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Labor, the War Production Board, the Labor Production Division of the War Production Board, the Selective Service System, and the United States Civil Service Commission to ensure effective mobilization of manpower in the post-war era. Executive Order 9279, dated December 5, 1942, transferred the Selective Service System to the War Manpower Commission. However, a year later it was made a separate agency directly responsible to the President. McNutt appointed all men to his labor advisory committee, despite the pleas of Women’s Bureau director, Mary Anderson, to have women represented. Instead, he created a Women’s Advisory Committee appointing thirteen prominent women professionals, business executives, journalists, educators and organizational presidents. However, he did not provide a budget and its members were not paid. We encourage viewers to add comments and, especially, to provide additional information about our videos by adding a comment!

    My first new factory ordered car was a Chevy Camaro RS. That gave jobs to factory workers, (union, good pay factory workers), parts suppliers and tire makers. Lots of jobs all the way to delivery, the dealership and bank that financed the car with I think 20% down – or about $13 – $1,400 hundred. No prime loans and if someone would have suggested – 0 down, 0 delivery etc. they would have laughed me out the door. Responsible lending…for cars, homes etc. The economy worked fine.

    Europe’s search for biofuels has led them to Americas’ southern forests and wetlands, such as the Nottoway River in Virginia. Many of the trees are logged for the sole purpose of grinding them up to later be converted into wood pellets. A clear cutting site in Waverly, Virginia was logged by the U.S. company Enviva, according to the non-profit organization, Dogwood Alliance. CCTV America’s Nitza Soledad Perez reported this story.

  • 10 Most Underrated National Parks

    yt 8342 10 Most Underrated National Parks 150x84 - 10 Most Underrated National Parks

    Here are 10 of the most underrated and less traveled national parks. The United States has 59 national parks, but only a handful receive the most attention. Yosemite, Yellowstone, and the Grand Canyon not only take up most of the spotlight, they get the lion’s share of the visitors. Here are 10 of the most underrated and far less traveled ones. Number 10. Wrangell-St. Elias National Park & Preserve, Alaska. The 13.2 million acre area is accessible by only two roads. The opportunity to see 9 of North America’s tallest mountains and steam rising from Mount Wrangell, one of the world’s largest active volcanoes, make it well worth the trip. Number 9. Channel Islands National Park, California. Fewer than 300,000 people in 2012 took advantage of this respite from densely populated and developed Southern California. Along the 5 island’s 175 miles of coastline, sightings of harbor seals and sea lions are the norm. Number 8. North Cascades National Park, Washington. If you’re in search of glaciers, look no further. This park has over 300 of them, making it home to over half of all those located in the lower 48 states. It also boasts many of the nation’s tallest waterfalls. Number 7. Great Basin National Park, Nevada. A plethora of round the clock activities can be found in this 77 thousand acre recreation spot. Viewing its marble caverns and limestone arches are highly recommended daytime diversions. As it’s one of the darkest places in the US come nightfall, the evenings are all about stargazing. Number 6. Capitol Reef National Park, Utah. Whether your interests lie in the prehistoric days or those more recently passed, this park has much to offer. A wrinkle in the earth’s surface has made it possible to gaze upon 270 million years of sedimentary history . Number 5. Theodore Roosevelt National Park, North Dakota. Experience the badlands just like namesake Teddy Roosevelt did, roaming buffalo, wild horses and all. The landscape is similar to the one at Badlands National Park in South Dakota, but with a lot less visitors. Number 4. Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, Colorado. This is about as tall and steep as canyon walls get. An Empire State Building stacked on top of a Willis Tower still would come up short in comparison. Number 3. Isle Royale National Park, Michigan. Located in the Upper Peninsula and surrounded by Lake Superior, this remote natural wonderland is one of the least visited parks in the country. Its secluded location has afforded it the ability to preserve many ecosystems in their pre-1800s states. Number 2. Congaree National Park, South Carolina. Established as a means of preserving the largest US concentration of old-growth bottomland hardwood, this park has one of the country’s most serious forests. It has global bragging rights too, as its natural canopy is among the world’s tallest. Number 1. Biscayne National Park, Florida. Pack your snorkeling gear, because 95 percent of this park is underwater. Sights to be seen include one of the world’s largest coral reefs, manatees, and over 70 wrecked ships. Watch out for the barracudas and the 500-pound groupers, though.

  • America’s Most Visited National Park! – Great Smoky Mountains National Park

    yt 8348 Americas Most Visited National Park Great Smoky Mountains National Park 150x84 - America's Most Visited National Park! - Great Smoky Mountains National Park

    USA’s Most Visited National Park! – Great Smoky Mountains National Park – Tennessee & North Carolina Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a United States National Park and UNESCO World Heritage Site that straddles the ridgeline of the Great Smoky Mountains, part of the Blue Ridge Mountains, which are a division of the larger Appalachian Mountain chain. The border between Tennessee and North Carolina runs northeast to southwest through the centerline of the park. It is the most visited national park in the United States.[3] Attractions and Activities The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a major tourist attraction in the region. Over 9 million tourists and 11 million non-recreational visitors traveled to the park in 2010, more than twice as many visitors as the Grand Canyon, the second most visited national park.[15] Surrounding towns, notably Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, and Townsend, Tennessee, and Cherokee, Sylva, Maggie Valley, and Bryson City, North Carolina receive a significant portion of their income from tourism associated with the park. The two main visitors’ centers inside the park are Sugarlands Visitors’ Center near the Gatlinburg entrance to the park and Oconaluftee Visitor Center near Cherokee, North Carolina at the eastern entrance to the park. These ranger stations provide exhibits on wildlife, geology, and the history of the park. They also sell books, maps, and souvenirs. Unlike most other national parks, there is no entry fee to the park.[16] The park has a number of historical attractions. The most well-preserved of these (and most popular) is Cades Cove, a valley with a number of preserved historic buildings including log cabins, barns, and churches. Cades Cove is the single most frequented destination in the national park. Self-guided automobile and bicycle tours offer the many sightseers a glimpse into the way of life of old-time southern Appalachia. Other historical areas within the park include Roaring Fork, Cataloochee, Elkmont, and the Mountain Farm Museum and Mingus Mill at Oconaluftee. Historic districts • Cades Cove Historic District • Elkmont Historic District • Oconaluftee Archaeological District • Noah Ogle Place • Roaring Fork Historic District Individual listings Hannah Cabin in Little Cataloochee, was built in the mid-1800s by John Jackson Hannah, the son of early pioneer Evan Hannah. The cabin’s brick chimney is one of only three in theSmoky Mountains. • Alex Cole Cabin • Clingmans Dome Observation Tower • Hall Cabin (in Hazel Creek area) • John Messer Barn • John Ownby Cabin • Oconaluftee Baptist Church (also called Smokemont Baptist Church) • Tyson McCarter Place • Mayna Treanor Avent Studio • Little Greenbrier School • Walker Sisters Place http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Smoky_Mountains_National_Park Gatlinburg is a mountain resort city in Sevier County, Tennessee, United States. The population was 3,944 at the 2010 Census, and 4,047 according to the 2012 Census estimate. The city is a popular vacation resort, as it rests on the border of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park along U.S. Route 441, which connects Gatlinburg to Cherokee, North Carolina through the national park.. Tourism Gatlinburg is an important tourism destination in Tennessee, with many man-made attractions, and it borders the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Ober Gatlinburg[38] is the onlyski resort in Tennessee. It has eight ski trails, three chair lifts, a wildlife encounter area, and is accessible via roads and a gondola from the city strip. The Gatlinburg Trolley, a privately funded public transit system, caters to area tourists.[39] Another popular attraction is Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies which also features special exhibits covering subjects such as the Titanic, pirates and more recently the planet Mars.Dollywood and Dollywood’s Splash Country, which are both named for Dolly Parton, are amusement parks located in nearby Pigeon Forge. During the Christmas season the entire downtown area is decorated with lights for the Winterfest Celebration. This celebration takes place from November thru February. [41] Visitors during the Winterfest Celebration can also take a Trolly Ride of the Lights from Nov 12, 2014 to Jan 25, 2015 for only $5.00. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gatlinburg,_Tennessee Cherokee (ᏣᎳᎩ in Cherokee language) /ˈtʃɛrɵkiː/ [1] is a census-designated place (CDP) in Swain and Jackson counties in western North Carolina, United States, within the Qualla Boundary land trust. It is located in the Oconaluftee River Valley around the intersection of U.S. Route 19 and U.S. Route 441. As of the 2010 census, the CDP had a population of 2,138. Harrah’s Cherokee Casino opened in 1995 and dramatically “changed everything from jobs to education to health care” for Cherokee tribe members. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cherokee,_North_Carolina

  • Rocky Mountain (USA) National Park Travel Guide

    yt 8410 Rocky Mountain USA National Park Travel Guide 150x84 - Rocky Mountain (USA) National Park Travel Guide

    Travel video about destination Rocky Mountain in The USA. No other mountains in the United States of America conjure up the myths and legends of the Wild West than do the Rocky Mountains. The Rocky Mountains National Park contains only a small area of North America’s mighty, thousand kilometre long mountain range. It is located in Colorado and rightly deserves its reputation as being one of the greatest natural paradises in the U.S.A.In late spring the vast ocean of flowers that cloaks the meadows is in stark contrast to the snow covered mountain peaks. In the deeper regions the landscape is mostly covered by dense forests that are dominated by many varieties of pine tree. Powerful forces are always at work creating new scenes of natural splendour and in spring time after the snow has melted the creeks are transformed into mighty torrents of water. The combination of high mountains, dense forest, crystal clear lakes, wild rivers and idyllic valleys gives this region a unique atmosphere. The Rocky Mountains National Park is beyond doubt one of the most spectacular and outstanding areas of natural beauty anywhere in the world. ————– Watch more travel videos ► http://goo.gl/HYQdhg Join us.
