A Road Trip of Bucket List Proportions: Lights of Liberty

2013-12-29 - 36 Hustonville Street, Liberty, KY - Photo by Larry Smith, The Big Dawg, 99.9 FM radio. I've made a pilgrimmage to Lights of Liberty to visit what is for Prof. A. W. Reed fans a shrine, even though there are no appropriate historical markers here. Every boy should have been so lucky to live a Tom Sawyer life in a wonderful small town like Liberty, Greensburg, or Summersville, and to have been afforded the opportunity to learn a valuable trade, running a movie theatre projector, as Prof. Reed did here when it was the Kentuckian Theatre, and I learned at the old Skyline in Summersville. I was also interested in the retro-Coca-Cola billboard of World War II vintage of the aviatrix and the slogan, "Your Thirst Takes Wings." It was worth the trip across KY 70 to Liberty. Just a hint - they could at least paint a historical marker on the side of the building commemorating this phase of Prof. Reed's early education. - Larry Reed, The Big Dawg, FM 99.9
