Sano, Ono, and Uno -- know where these towns are?

When former mayor, Pat Bell, was director of LCADD, he and others from the district were in a meeting I think in Washington D.C. When they introduced themselves and told where they were from, it was Sano, Ono, and Uno in Kentucky. Do you know the counties? --Don Knifley
Comments re article 92070 Sano KY how it got its name
Don, I can say yes on two of them, but have to yield to others who may know where the third is in the state. Sano, we know, is in Russell County/Adair County. Uno, I know because we went there to visit relatives when I was a child. We'd ask from the back seat where were going and Dad would say "Uno" and my brother and I would say, "no we don't know" and that would go round and round until we got silly with laughter and finally reached our destination. Uno, KY is located in north eastern Hart County, north of Horse Cave, KY on Highway 31E. Now, if you don't know and I don't know, we're ready for someone to tell us which county can claim Ono, KY. - Linda
