SHARPS MOUNTAIN I mentioned the early Sharp settlers’ on Lilly Mountain in last week’s column. I was surprised to get a call from Jerry Sharp out near Chest Springs. We had an enjoyable conversation and he filled me in on some Sharp history. The original Sharp settler got a 400 acre land grant for his service during the Revolution. They would come up from what is now Fulton County in a cart pulled by their cattle to work at clearing a field. In 1817 Ignatius Adams, also a large landholder, was staying with his sister at Sharp’s Place on the mountain. There were later Sharps that served in the Mexican-American War and the Civil War. Closer to our times they served also in both World Wars. Jerry served after the Korean War. His grand daughter, Ashley Sharp, is currently serving in the U.S Navy.

LIMBAUGH Some of these “ Think they are Better than You” TV personality’s are not worth the time of day. I hope they take Rush Limbaugh completely off. I am glad to see 7 of his sponsors pulled their ads. He is apologizing but you can bet it is only to save some money that he sees flying out the door.
