This will also do Bill Sears, Roley mayor

2006-08-17 - Roley, Adair CO, KY - Photo CM staff. Bill Sears is the self proclaimed but publicly accept mayor of Roley, the historic little community in northern Adair County. Sears, a Vietnam veteran, proudly flies the American flag in his yard. Sears, a Taylor County native, moved to this house in 1988. The home itself has been a Roley landmark for many years. When Ina Goode owned it, a large sign reminded folks it was every bit as important to Ina Goode as Monticello was to Jefferson. A large "Thistledome" sign stood in the yard. Folks from off interpreted it as "Thistle Dome," But Ina Goode gently reminded them it was pronounced "This Will Do Me." If you drive northern Adair County now as it enters one of it's most beautiful seasons, you'll understand why Ina Goode was so contented here.
