I have no idea why I stopped and made a picture of the Oliver sign on the tin building across the street from the Courthouse. I was always fascinated with the sight of that warehouse of corrugated galvanized metal contrasted with the surrounding buildings of brick. Maybe I needed it for a Photo Quiz. "Oliver" just speaks farming. Who was the lawyer-turned-farmer in the the TV show "Green Acres"? That's right, Oliver. How many Olivers can you name who were farmers in Treutlen County? You can Wiki, as I did, to learn how James Oliver created a better plow in the midwest of the mid-1800s. Want to improve your education? Ask an old farmer, "What is a number-ten Oliver?"
Others that week: Football, Mrs. Lavada Barwick's late-blooming day lily, FFA National Convention, TES exhibits, midget football team, Dr. Glawson and family.
