Gradyville Flood, E.A. Diddle Roadside Markers here

2007-06-07 - Adair County Road Department Barn, Columbia, KY - Photo By Ed Waggener.
Roadside Markers commemorating the Gradyville Flood and to mark Gradyville as the birthplace of America's most colorful basketball coach,Ed Diddle, are in safe storage on the pallet above at the Adair County Road Department Barn, with Joe Raines and Jobe Darnell standing guard, above. They will be installed by ACRD Superintendent Jobe Darnell's crews when Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Sue Stivers and the people of Gradyville find the right place for the markers to be placed. The decision(s) will be based on three factors: 1) Convenience for tourists 2) Proximity to events, and 3) Scenic beauty of location. Ideas should be made known at the Chamber office, (270) 384-6020, at Judge Ann Melton's office (270) 384-4703, or at D & F Grocery & Deli, the community center of Historic Gradyville.
