Gradyville, Boyhood home of Ed Diddle

2012-09-24 - Gradyville, KY - Photo by Larry Smith.
This sign at the intersection of Edmonton Road and Old Gradyville Road was erected by the Kentucky Department of Highways following a gift for payment of the sign by then Fourth District Magistrate J.M. Shelley, who was assisted in dedicatory ceremonies by the late Gradyville Mayor Hootie Gist. The photo above was taken by Larry Smith, FM 92.7, The WAVE radio. Mr. Diddle, the first coach to win 1,000 basketball games, all at Western Kentucky College/later University, Bowling Green, KY, was a longtime resident of Gradyville and Columbia and remains the most colorful coach, ever.
