779. Fulton County Trivia

If you have been following the posts of late, you will notice the prefix of SB.  SB is Sherman Brown who has created on Facebook an ongoing dialogue with his followers as to who they know and where they eat when visiting in Kentucky's 120 counties.

We are presently a little less than halfway through the Litany of the Counties and it has been an extraordinary adventure thus far.

Back at the entry for Fulton County, in the far, far western corner of the state, I asked a trivia question which has gone unanswered so I am reposting here again to see if anyone knows the correct response.

The question is "Numerically and infrastucturally speaking, what is the connection between far, far western Fulton County and north-central Hardin County? Your only hint is Donald Duck."

I'll await your answers either here or on Facebook.

Although the former is the geographical most western point of Kentucky,the latter is where the town of West Point is located. Incidentally my uncle Ronnie Hockman is the minister of the nearby North Hardin Christian Church. Tell him Sonny sent you!

Incidentally, you can overlook the river valleys of each location from Donaldson Point and Fort Duffield, respectfully. If that has anything to do with our clue, you don't understand what the word clue means.

Yes, I incidentally used the word incidentally in two subsequent paragraphs. No one is perfect!

*concurrent paragraphs. Whatever. Goodnight!

Ok. No one is going to solve the puzzle. The answer is the location of KY313. For many years the single road jutting northward in the New Madrid Bend part of "far, far western Fulton County" carried the highway number 313. 313 happens to be the license plate number on the front of Donald Duck's cars in the old cartoons. It is also the area code for Detroit. About fifteen years ago, KY313 was decommissioned in Fulton County and used on the new "Fort Knox Connector" road from I-65 westward to Dixie Highway in north-central Hardin County. The road has been christened the "Joe Prather Highway." Although it currently ends in Radcliffe at Dixie, it is being quickly expanded to the northwest connecting the western side of Fort Knox and the southern side of Brandenburg. -- Jeff
