  • Kathy Jo Stubblefield I would call Sue Melton and Karen Davis (President and Treasurer of Webster Democratic Woman's Club) and take their advice re dining.

  • Ashley S. Westerman My father, Vernon Westerman, Chairman of the Webster County Democratic Party, would also be a good source too. He is good friends with both Sue Melton and Karen Davis. PM me if you want his number...he would be a good source for both current things in WebCo as well as past things, as he was born, raised and taught high school in the county for almost 30 years.

  • Ashley S. Westerman But in terms of dining, there are some "institutions" in the county. The Poole Mill Restaurant in Poole, has changed hands A MILLION times since I've been a live and I'm only 26...but the food always turns out fantastic. In Sebree, the Sebree Dairy Bar...your typical American food, but has been there for ever and it's not bad. Jerry's Cafe in Clay, another solid meal that's been around for some time. I'm sure there are also places in Providence, the county's largest town...but I haven't been there in YEARS so they may have gotten something other than the McDonalds there in recent years I don't know about.  As for people to talk to...definitely talk to my Dad, he'd know.

Never married, liberal Democrat, born in 1960, opinionated but generally pleasant, member of the Episcopal Church. Graduate of Prestonia Elementary, Durrett High, and Spalding University; the first two now-closed Jefferson County Public Schools, the latter a very small liberal arts college in downtown Louisville affiliated with the Roman Catholic Sisters of Charity of Nazareth. My vocation and avocation is politics. My favorite pastime is driving the backroads of Kentucky and southern Indiana, visiting small towns, political hangouts, courthouses, churches, and cemeteries. You are welcome to ride with me sometime.
