Got a weekend event to publicize: Still time to post

Easy Way to get free publicity which would cost $50-250 and more otherwise - but as advertising still the best media bargain in the country! A HEADS UP: Of course there is no Willard County, KY. It's a figament of mischievous minds. It's a mythical place, somewhat like Adair County author Chris Rowe's "Cane County." Willard County was created by the late Hughes Walker and a Mr. Renfro to confuse the Fried Chicken loaners sent by John Y. Brown to help a Democratic campaign they worked in. The dossier on Willard County lasted only until J.R. Miller called the boys into the office demanding they end it after the Fried Chicken whiz busted in Chairman Miller's office wanting to know what he was going to do about the internecine party faction war in Willard County which was undermining the campaign throughout the region. Chairman Miller was not amused.

Or, just send the following content and we'll write the announcement.
