Editor "finds" Three Poplar yV l(eener-1780- air-1980 I YOUR [ b v Ran Gregory The editor of the Democrat/Path- finder has been a resident of Gilmer County practically all his life. He assumed, therefore, that he knew pretty much where everything in the county is. However, about two weeks ago he was called to the front desk where a lady informed him that there would be a Homecoming at Three Poplar on Sunday, September 4. The editor dutifully took the information and then began to wonder where Three Poplar was. He was forced to admit that he had never heard of the place. After talking with some of the staff who have been around the county for some time. he was still unable to determine exactly where Three Poplar was located. A call to Gilmer County Deputy Sheriff Dale Hacker, Jr. brought forth the information that Three Poplar was located a short distance off State Route 5 going toward Grantsville. The editor thanked Deputy Hacker for the information and then mentioned to a few people that he had never heard, of, let alone been, to Throe Poplar. One evening last week. though, he told Gilmer County Schools Director of Transportation Billy Bennett about the lack of knowledge on his part. Mr. Bennett said, "You don't know where Three Poplar is?" The editor replied that he knew where it was because Deputy Hacker had told him, but reiterated that he had never been there. Transportation Director Bennett then said, "Well, what are you going to be doing this evening?" The editor explained that he had several things he should be doing, but asked what Mr. Bennett had in mind. "I have to go check on a bus house down in that area," Bennett said. "If you want, we'll wait until I've worked the day out and we'll drive down to check on the bus house and I'll take you to Three Poplar." The editor replied that he would like nothing better than to be enlightened in this manner. At around 5 p.m., Mr. Bennett arrived at the newspaper office. The editor grabbed his camera and jumped in the car. After the visit to the bus house, Mr. Bennett proceeded to drive up Holt MID-STATE RIDING ARENA Horse Show Rt. 1, Box111, Sutton, W.V. 26601 SEPTEMBER 17TH - 7 P.M. OCTOBER 1ST- 7 P.M. [-']1.

At the top of the hill. standing to the left. stood a white church building with a beautifully landscaped ceme- tery. On its front were the words, "Three Poplar Baptist Church". "There it is. " said Mr. Bennett. He stopped his car and the editor hopped out with camera in hand to take some shots of the building and surrounding countryside. Following the stop at 'Three Poplar. Mr. Bennett took the editor through other areas of DeKalb District and then returned him to the newspaper door. Now the editor knows where Three Poplar is and has the pictures to prove he's been there. He also knows that Mr. Bennett is an absolute expert on the various outlying areas of the county, partially owing to his iob as Transportation Supervisor. The editor further has engaged the services of Mr. Bennett. when he isn't working at the Board of Education. to take him on guided tours of the county in areas with which the editor is unfamiliar. Hopefully. there aren't too many of them, but Mr. Bennett is an excellent guide and travalin8 companion. MRS.
