November 25, 1977 Around Adair with Ed Waggener

Best view in the county?
Cousin Berniece Arnold must have the best job in Adair County. She's the librarian at Sparksville School. Sparksville School is situated high on a hill, and from our Cousin Berniece's window one can see for miles and miles, with broom sedge waving in the foreground, and little houses dotting the countryside; beyond, the wooded hills gently recede into a valley toward Flatwoods to Gradyville, then rise into blueness in the rimmed crest at the outer limits.

I was out there Thursday, and I told her she ought to take a thousand dollars a year less in pay for the scenery, besides the benefits she gets by teaching in one of the most enthusiastic communities in the county. She agreed the view is the best from any Adair County school library. But somehow she didn't think she was overpaid.

Sparksville is a neat school
Terry Farris, the new principal this year at Sparksville, says he really likes it there, despite the fact that he commutes 15 miles each way from his new home at Vester.
