JIM: Entertaining tales of Which County?
Thirty years or so ago, one of my older "kids" at Western kept me quite entertained with tales of "which county?" He or she lived very, very near the point where the lines of Metcalfe, Green, and Hart counties converge, so the family had utilities from all three counties. There were also issues of which school and (as I recall) to which county the property taxes went.
And just yesterday, I encountered a brief note in the Adair County News which spoke of a house in Adair so close to the line, rain hitting on one side of the roof hit the ground in Russell County.
And so it goes...or so it went, anyway. - jim
