Holding Hailey trumps a Dixie Cafe pulled pork sandwich

2014-03-10 - 208 S Main, Corbin, KY - Photo CM staff photo. Mema, Linda Waggener got to hold Hailey, by choice, while a Dixie Cafe pulled pork sandwich and onion rings awaited her. Hailey and her parents and and the boys were in town for the Odyssey of the Mind Competition at Corbin High School. Dixie Cafe is a delightful downtown restaurant owned and operated by Ed and Carolyn Garr family. It's famous for the world famous "Chili Bun" which orginated here. Carolyn Garr, it tuns out, is a Campbellsville College (1984) graduate, who holds both a BA and and MA in music from the school - earned before it became Campbellsville University. She's now a teacher at Corbin Middle School. Not only was the food and downtown Corbin impressive, so are the schools. Didn't get into detail, but there are "94 percentile" signs at several points. We got to see the community's downtown Farmer's Market too. It's been visited by several in this area. All in all a great "laboratory town" to see much to emulate in Columbia. Paired Photo: See Also - Epicurean Kentuckian: Slaw Burger with Onion Rings, taken by Pen after only one bite. Even though cameras outnumbered people, he was the only one to have fortitude to photograph the food before it was devoured. We want to go back there someday. - ED WAGGENER
