Mountain Workshops “One Eye Open” [VIDEO]

The Mountain Workshops have done an amazing job documenting so many great stories about our Owensboro community. I came across one today and I already knew who it was. Well, I don't personally know this family, but I have followed their story, like so many others have, thru social media.
