By Billy Joe Fudge Love the picture and am so pleased that our community is growing.

Looking forward to the opening of 3trees - Columbia and a big thank you to all the businesses, groups and individuals investing in our future.

Recently Libby and I were passing through Monticello and stopped in at the "Black Stallion". Wow, impressive indeed. Good variety, good food, good service and for me they passed my personal "cold slaw test".

I happen to believe that if you can't make good "cold slaw", you can't cook. Might not be a good litmus test for you but it has served me well over the years.

Just a few of my "good cold slaw DIVERSITY awards" are: "Chopped finest award" - Famous Recipe, "Go back for more award" - Ok Country Cooking, "Include the cabbage stalk award" - Captain D's, "Stringiest award" - Cracker Barrel and the "Largest serving award" goes to J Alexander's.

I would love to hear from you Great Wooded South citizens concerning your personal palate preferences for "good cold slaw" and, if your eating establishment did not make the "good cold slaw DIVERSITY awards" list, don't be discouraged; I'm sure I like yours too, and you'll probably pop up on the 2019 or a later award listing.
