I hope everyone will have an enjoyable Monday as the nation takes a day to recognize the accomplishments of the American worker. Our area’s quality labor force of 182,490* certainly is a productive group with a rural work ethic and a varied skillset. I hope you take advantage of a day of summer fun as fall approaches and remember the contributions of a quality workforce to our nation.
